Government Still Unknown.
IRELAND IS NORMAL AGAIN
London, May 4. Rumors that Au
gustine Birrell, chief secretary for
Ireland, has tendered his resignation
to Premier A::juith because, of the
Dublin rebellion, were in general cir
culation here following Birrell's re
turn from Dublin.
The Daily Chronicle's parliament
ary correspondent reported a rumor
in the house of commons lobbies that
not enly Birrell but General Friend,
commander of the forces in Ireland,
and several other officials have re
signed. Birrell is certain to be under
heavy fire when the motion for his
resignation is called for debate in the
house of commons.
The course the government will pur
rue toward the rebel prisoners who
have been brought to England is not
known. Jt wan pointed out, however,
that in the Boer revolt early in the
war and the recent mutinies rear La
hore, India, only the leaders were ex
ecuted. Resistance by isolated bands of reb
els engaged the attention of govern
ment forces in Ireland yesterday, but
as rapidly as troops reached villages
where the rebels . had concentrated
they surrendered. Scarcely any snip
in occurred in Dublin.

Here's Why G. & B. PEARL Wire
Cloth Stops Screen Expense
Painting repairing replacing screen
those are the expenses which make inefficient
wire clotli a source of annoyance and money loss. When
you screpn with genuine G. & 1. PEARL you do away with
painting-, repairing, replacements simply because PEARL is
rust-proof as metal can le made, consequently makes a screen
that's practically wear-proof.
G. 6c 13. PEARL represents true screen econ
omy. It outwears all imitations so far that no other
similar appearinfwire can be placed in the same class. From
points of appearance sanitation durability and economy G.& .

The longer G. 6c B. PEARL is up the nearer
the color of the atmosphere it becomes. It is easy on

smooth meshes prevent the lodging of dust and dirt and grime.
