AGREE TO DISAGREE Reception of Home Rule Bill'Un- favorable in Ireland. Sinn Fein Chief Is Eager to Interest Americans, According to De/ Valera's Aid." Dublin, Mj.rch 1.—The reception of the home rule bill here is generally unfavorable. The constitutionalists are not discussing" it and are awaiting Sir Horace Plunkett's announcement next Thursday regarding American opinion. Arthur Griffith, De Valera's second in command, stated the Sinn Fein view. "The bill," he said, "is merely one to repeal the measure by promises of which John Redmond was duped into advising his countrymen to fight and die for England in the Ifite war. Tell the American people that Ireland will never permit itself to be mnde, according to the present plans of English militarists, a pistol pointed at New York. "England's scheme, with its agent Carson,. to dismember Ireland, will meet a similar fate to England's former scheme, with Aaron Burr, to dismember the-United States." The Freeman's Journal refers to the new Irish home rule bill as "a proposal for the plunder and partition of Ireland," and characterizes it as "a thievish measure."

Vehicles and Electric Lines May ,Stop • —Government Shows No Disposition to Yields-Plans to a Fimsh Fight. '. Paris, March 1.—The subway and ti-ainwuy and the omnibus, cab and tiixk-abjlrivers' unions adopted In principle-a proposal to x call a. sympathetic strike in favor of the railway 'men, provided they are invited to do so by' the General Federation o£ Labor, which has assumed direction of -tlio railway strike. Tlie government lias shown no'dis- position to yield, displaying instead a determination to make a finish fight. In this it seems to'be receiving encouragement. The Paris newspapers are unanimous in declaring the public absolutely out~of sympathy with the railrptid strike. While expressing the hope it soon will end, the newspapers say they consider st to be the duty of every citizen to support the government. Public Patience "Worn Out."

"The country does not want a con- _flict," the newspaper says, i'but if. the "folly of revolutionists conjpetsf 7 ;'the government to prove that it 1 sist, it is resolved to do-so." In addition to proposals of citizens and former soldiers to help break the strike, students of engineering and simjlar schools have offered their services to the government for transport work. The volunteers number neariy- 3.000 for Paris alone. Several provincial schools have made similar offers. Many of these students volunteered during the las.t subway strike and gained some experience in driving engines.

"All through trains on the state -line started. The Northern is normal except at Amiens. The S6uthern is satisfactory except at Bordeaux. On the jtphole 24 hours after the general strike' was proclaimed there Is only partial stoppage of traffic. There is no total stoppage on any system,, not even on the Paris, Lyons & Mediterranean.
