"The Case of Ireland as ft Exists

accused England of attempting to
destroy all Irish ideals and make
the country English and destroy ail
efforts to maintain all vestiges of
Reign of Terror.
"England has never been moved
by, justice in its dealings with Ire
land," said the speaker. "The
Orangemen have teen tools of the
British government and the people
of the south and the north of Ire
land have been pitted against each
other for England's gain.
"England established a reign of
terror in Ireland by military rule at
the start of the war with Germany
and that reign of terror exists to
day. Sixteen of the leaders of the
Irish republic were executed, hun
dreds were given long terms in pris
ons and thousands were taken . to
England and held in internment
"The Irishman has been invited to
fight for democracy, wearing the
uniform of a British or American
soldier, but is considered a criminal
when he joins the army of the Irish
republic to fight for Ireland " I
Says English Foreigners.
Among other things the speaker
said the Irish people did not object
to the rule of the English as being
English, but protested that the Eng

just to the Irish to be under the

treatment by the English when he
was ordered to leave Ireland in

and of his imprisonment upon his
refusal to obey the order. He told
of his escape from an English pris
on camp and subsequent arrival in
