The first Internal machine directed at

tributed by - the general to agencies
friendly to those whose conspiracy
eventuated in 'the destruction of hla
newspaper plant, filling twenty-one
men three years ago. But the police
and postal authorities believed something
might be developed from the theory that
the Mexican question had a part In it.

The Ulster army Is said to be well or

leaders expect to double when recruiting

Sir Edward intends to spend a week In
Ulster. With several lieutenants, he will
visit the various corps which have boen
formed by drilled men of the unionist
clubs and Orange lodges.
The climax of Sir Edward's visit will
