‘TIPPERARY’ BANNED IN UNITED STATES NAVY. SOME NEAT~SARCASM. NEW YORK, December 2. (Received December 3, at 9.40 a.m.) Owing to Secretary Daniels’s prohibition of United States naval men singing ‘lt’s a Ismg Way to Tipperary,’ the New York Press makes merry. The New York ‘ World ’ asks why anyone should want to sing when a man like Secretary Daniels is head of the navy. “It is absurd to suggest that the song is a violation of neutrality, any more than the ‘ Blue Danube Waltz,’ 1 God Sava the King,’ or the hymn ‘ Gott Exhalt der Kaiser,’ which godly church folk sing on Sundays. The latter might be a temptation to non-neutrally-inciined naval chaplains, and ought therefore to bo stopped.” IRISH AND GERMANS. MASS MEETING” IN CHICAGO. AN ENGLISHMAN EJECTED. NEW YORK, December 2. (Received December 3, at 10 a.m.) A mass meeting of Germans and Irish at Chicago demanded that the United States Government prohibit shipments of contraband of war to Europe, except foodstuffs. The speakers declared that shipments of contraband only prolonged the war. An Englishman rose and began ‘God Save the King’ wMo the Germans were singing Irish and German national airs. The meeting attacked, the Englishman, and assaulted and finally ejected him. Tile police saved him from serious injury. Congressman Bartholdi promised to induce Congress to take the desired action.
