ULTIMATUM FROM LANSDOWNE

Onlr Condition thnt Will Avert
Thrententns; Peril of
LONDON, July H.-The House of Lords
today paused the third reading of the bill
to amend the Irish Home Rule bill and
sent It across to the House of Commons
In its closing stone In the upper house
the Marquis of Crewe, the Liberal leader,
took part In the debate on the bll' and
Indirectly promised that the attainment
of an agreement in regard to the elimina
tion of the time limit by which the
counties of Ulster were allowed to vote
on the question of their exclusion for
a period of six years from the operation
of the home rule bill would not prove
difficult. He said, however, that the
aera of the portion of Ireland to be ex
cluded had been bo greatly enlarged by
the Unionists that It would be a vexed
and critical question. The Unionists, he
argued, had failed to find how they pro
posed to meet the lnevtlable objections
to exclusion of the Roman Catholic
counties of Ulster and their friends else
where In Ireland.
The marquis concluded by asJtlng for
the exercise of patience and forbearance
and firmly hoping for a successful so
lution. The marquis of Lansdowne, the Union
ist leader, reiterated that nothing short
of the Unionist amendments could avert
the Immediate peril that was threaten
ing. Ho said this was his explanation
of the demand for the total exclusion of
the province of Ulster and he complained
that the government had given the Union
ists no asBlstanco "whatever in the task
of avortlng civil war.
At tho suggestion of the marquis of
Crewe, the bill was read a third time
without a vote being taken.
