Home nnln Compromises.
It waa a thankless task which Premier
Asquitli performed when, on Monday
evening, he Introduced tho government's
proposals for a compromise on tho Irish
i homo rule bill. Not a word of welcome
was uttered. Tho most ardent ot the gov
ernment's supporters all along havo re
garded a compromise with disfavor, and
maintained silence when tho scheme was
laid beforo tho House of Common. The
compromise amounts to this that any '
county ln tho province of Ulster may by j
a majority vote, when home rule becomes
operative, taka Itself out ot the union for
a period ot six years. At tho end of that
period tho county excluding itself auto
matically returns to the fold. Bonar Law,
leader of the unionist Party, denounced
tho compromise as Impossible and de
manded the dissolution of Parliament and
an appeal to the country on the homo
rulo Issue. Sir Edwnrd Carson, for tho
Ulstcrltes, branded tho scheme as "a
sentenco of death with a stay of execu
tion," Tho sentiment of the Irish na
tionalists, ns expressed by John E. Red
mond, was that of men whose forbear
ance was being stretched to the limit. Ap
parently tho proposed compromise Is with
out an enthusiastic friend ln tho com
mons. Discussion of tho subject. It Is
announced, has been deferred for two
weeks, during which tlmo there may bo
developments moro favorable to a com
promise than at present appears. It
should bo remembered, however, that no
amendment to tho Homo rule bill Is pos
sible under the law unless accepted by
both houses of Parliament. The approval
of tho Houso of Lords Is nccesitarv in

The forced resignation of thw nioiitti

io mo ncavy cost and disappointing re
sults of tho war which gave tho nation
possession of Tripoli, renamed Libya.
Tho general election last January, under
uie enlarged franchise, resulted In what
was regarded as a distinct vote of con

organised with a strong majority sup.

popular feeling arise In unexpected ways
and lawmakers quickly respond to the
change. A few weeks ago tho Glollttl
ministry appeared securely confident ot
writing Its policies Into the legislation of
tho session. Suddenly a party division
switched from tho ministry to tho oppo
sition, forcing the ministry out of office.
To tho disappointment over the results
of tho War Is the added discontent over
the rising cost of living, decreased em
ployment and labor strikes. Unrest ln
Italy Is widespread, and privation, com

The Gorman nelchstag bows to tho will

Tho committee appointed to consider
ways and means of vindicating civil over

of such events as scandalized the army

not consent, was forced to dissolve and
the Reichstag acquiesced. Tha Indigna

petered out when challenged by a minis

Knowing the wants ot each, a diplomatic

Mortality Auiouir Cardinals.
The recent death ot Cardinal Kopf ot
Germany makes a total ot four doaths
of members ot the college ot cardinals
within as many months, and leaves that
body sixteen short of tho maximum
number of seventy. Tho death rate
among cardinals Is necessarily heavy
because few ecclesiastics under three
score years attain that dignity. Eight
cardinals are octogenarians, seventeen
septuagenarians, twenty-one sexagena
rians and only eight under W years, the
youngest member being Cardinal Merry
del Val, secretary of elate, 48. Out of
the forty-five cardinals who died In the
last ten years only five had been created
by the present pope, thirty-nine by Pius
XIII and one by Plus IX. Pius X has
created thirty-seven cardinals during his
pontificate and all but five aro living.
As regards nationality the saored col
