Home Rule and Conscription.


WHILE the Daily Chroncile is responsible for the statement that it is probable that both Home Rule and Irish conscription will be side-tracked, Mr. Bonar Law stated in the House of Commons that it was an incorrect inference from Lord French's proclamation that the Government had abandoned the idea of conscription. As regards Home Rule, however, Mr. Bonar Law stated that he could not say when the Bill would be introduced. As conscription is not to be thought of until the Home Rule Bill has been passed, the Chronicle's statement does not seem to be so very wide off the mark after all. In the meantime the movement against conscription is as active as ever.
