In so deciding, as everybody now knows, Germany made two profound miscalculations, both of them natural enough in men who had come to believe that in international matter, everything can be - explained and measured in terms of material force. THE BELGIAN RESISTANCE. What were those mistakes ? The first Belgium, a small and prosperous country, entirely disinte ested in European quarrels, guaranteed by the joint and several compacts of the Great Powers, would not resent, and certainly would not reKfet. the use of her territory as a high road for invading German force into France. How could they imagine that this little country, rather than allow her neutrality to be violated and her independ suited and menaced, was prepared that her fields hhould be drenched with the blood of her soldiers, her towns and villages devastated by marauders, h. r splendid heritage of monument and of treasures built up for her by the piety, art. and i free people to their own free State these were things which apparently had never been I reamed of in the philosophy of Potsdam.

Ireland had all these things at stake in this war. It was true her cathedrals had not been burned down, her universities burnt to the ground, or her villages de stroyed. It was true her women and children Why was that so f The reason was the Army'and Navy (loud cheew) and the brave men thank God. many of them gallant Irishmen who were day and night risking and giving their lives to defend the nation's property, liberty, and honour. That barrier removed, in 46 houM the liberties of Ireland would )e gone, the country would be devastated, the cities sacked, women and children slaughtered. In those circumstances was not this an Irish war ? (" Ye.") What was Ireland's duty in the war? (Cries of "To fight.") Wellington, 14 years after Waterloo, said that at were Irish Catholics, and without their blood and valour his military talents might have been everted in vain. Mr. Redmond gave farther numerical records of Irish representation in the British Army and declared that in spite of e migration, the proportion had kept up, and was a Ulgi to - day. " I take leave to say," added Mr. Redmond, ' that In proportion to our population, we have a Urge quota serving in the firing line than any other part of the United Kingdom." (Cheers.) As to quality.

" but we have got a historical liking for the word Irish Brirade. Let an Irish brigade, or Army Corps call it what you like be formed." (Cheers.) He mentioned that an Englishman had offered 5,000 towards the expenses of the brigade and went on. " We want an Army Corps so that their deeds of valour in the field will be garnered by us as one of the measuns of our nation in future. (Cheers.)

At the same time e maintain here in Ireland, in - ict and inviolable, our Irish National Volunteers fcheers). and in my judgment that body of volun - :eera will prove to be an inexhaustible source of neopi - doubt as to the sentiments of the Nationalists of this country, the overwhelming Army which is being created.

An important proclamation relating to trading with the enemy was published in the London Gazette last night. Under tho Enemy Proclamation No. 2, dated September 9, the payment of any sum of money to or for the benefit of any person resident in enemy territory is prohibited, but the Home Secretary now authorises such persons as may be empowered by the Treasury in that behalf to make such payments and to carry out such exchange transactions for tlie benefit of persons resident in an enemy country as the Treasury mav from time to time sanction, or to receive payment of moneys from persons resident in on enemy country in such cases as the Treasury may from time to time sanction.
