STOLEN CROWN JEWELS.
MR-. BIRRELL REFUTES SLANDER ON LORD HADDO. Mb. Coatks asked in Parliament the dates between which the Crown jewels must have been stolen from Dublin Castle. Mr. Birrell replied between June 11 and July 6. He might be allowed to refer to a cowardly and baseless falsehood connected with the name of Lord Haddo in connection with the theft of the jewels, which had obtained wide circulation both in Dublin and in London, and had found its way into certain newspapers. ' Ridiculous as such a statement might appear, it was not always'easy to maintain total indifference to- such charges. (Cheers.) He was able to say, with his own personal knowledge, that Lord Haddo left Dublin on March 7, 1907, and lived in Scotland and London from that time, without intermission, until December 7. (Cheers.) He hoped this statement would put an end to the business of the scandalmongers. (Loud cheers.) If he. might be permitted to mention the name of the Lord Lieutenant, he would add that Lord Aberdeen' had been from the first most anxious that there should be the fullest possible inquiry into all the circumstances connected with the loss of the Crown jewels, and would have been very glad if it had been possible to call into existence a statutory Commission. (Cheers.)
