lONDGN, May 7. Th government today
presented lta long-awaited Irish bill to the
House of Cnmranm and the cnurtT Thl
bill la designed to meet the Srmklij fur
Irish home rule. It was presented by the
chief aacri'tary fot Ireland, Mr. Blrrell, to
Tli measure ronfers little iwlf govern
ment upon Ireland. merely giving to the
council the administration of the eight de
portments now managed by government
boards. The council is to be paxt'y elected
and partly appointed by the crown, and
while the lord lieutenant cf Ireland 1 !
flven power to nullify its measures, the :
crown retain control of ve of the. eight
departments. Including tin constabulary.
Tha control of thla branch always he
been a thorn In the flesh of the Irish peo
!. Thla balf-way measure Is wholly pleasing
to no political party. The unionist regard
ft as a step toward home rule. They object
to plvlrip Ireland the management oi many I
department of local affair ahile the Irish
member of oommon retain the ripht to
legislate in similar effutrs for Enpland and
Bootland They criticise also the plan of
the government a complicated and cum
bersome. The radicals are disappointed
that the measure falls ao short of actual
Irish Hole C aavratla.
The Irish leaders, however, are maintain
ing a diplomatic attitude until they have
t'me to study the provisions of the bill
and learn the sentiment of the people. A I
nationalist convention will be held in Dub

policy. The lahtrrlte will support the nieaa- I " - c,g

been amashed and several of tiie armed
; operatives had been struck, rut and bruised.
At Turk and Buchanan streets an especlaly
j fierce attack was made on the foremost car.
A guard on the rear platform answered the
j flying stones with a pistol ehot. The bullet
i struck one of the union sympaThtsors in
' the arm.
i This transformed the crowd Into a wild
mob and thenceforward for twelve blocks
