THE NEW IRELAND
A Di'blin telcmvim of October 6 to the London ' Daily Mail' says : The new idea, for the south of Ireland—of Ireland as one of the great Imperial family—found ite first expression at Mr Asquifh's meeting in Dublin, when, far the first time on record, a Nationalist meeting sang 'God Save flic King.' The National Anthem is now being sung all over Ireland. Boys at the, street corners of Wexford whistle 'Rule. Britannia.' In Cork the proprietors of Cinematograph shows have just begun to fhow the King's picture :n the end of performances, and the audiences cheer it. In Gal way a crowd whose, fathers were often Moonligluei* wanted to tear to pieces some people who inteirr.pted a rccvuitinz meeting. Street traders are doing a suddenly brifk trade in patriotic emblems though here, it must. ho noted that the: lb.lgi.ii! Hag is by far the most ponular. Th" Nationalist leaders have set themselves with loyally and courage to fester this new idea. The fri.-limaii rt quires time to realise al! its < on:v quences, but the indications at present are that the Imperial idea will conquer and live.
