' Soldies in the National Guar,d, all men who are called to service under the selective draft, and any other voters who may be absent from their home voting plicosat the time of the next primary election in May, 191S, or at the general election in No vember thereafter should by all means see to it now that their names are entered on Absent Voters' Registration Book, unless their names are already on the regular registration books, . The chairman of the county board of elections in each courty is the registrar for all su2h vo ers who wish to register, XThJe sheriff cr any county officer will, upon request, furnish his name and address If a voter is now registered, he will be entiled to vote by mail if away from home at the time of the primary or the general elec tion, but there is no provision in the .'aw for registration by mail, Theie is no fee for this regis tration and every voter whose name is not now on the registra- b oks, who may be absent, owes the duty, both to ;-himselffb),-t3lhat. they are grouped rather his State to regis tr and register now, for unless he does so regis ter in person before going away, he will not be permitted to vote by mail, and, if away from home, wi l.thus bse his vote. This law was enacted primari ly for the benefit of our soldiers, and it is hoped that they will avail themselves of its privil eges. Are you one of Them? There are a great many people who would be very much bene fited by taking Chamberlain's Tablets for a weak disordered i stomach. Are you one of them? Mrs M R Sea.l, Bald winsville, N Y, relates her experience in the use of these tablets:- I had a bad spell with my stomach about six months ago, and was troubled for iwo or three weeks with gas and severe pains in the pu of my stomach. Our druggist advised me to take Chamberlain's Tablets. I took a bottle home and the first dose relieved me wonderfully, and I kept on taking them until I was cured." These tablets do not releive pain but after the pais has been re leived may preyent its recurrence. Salisbury's Military Organization Gets Ready for Camp.

An indication of true condi tions in Ireland is fouad in an article which appeared in the Belfast Evening Telegram of April 11th. In recruits to the new armies Uliter has contributed 59,000 while the combined total of the other three provinces is only 51,- 700. The percentage of males of "military age who have recruit ed are: Ulster, 33.8; Leinster (in cluding Dublin), 17.7; aad Mun- ster, 11 7; and Connaught, 4.9. The above statistical report together with relative matters commented upon by the Protes tant Alliance Magazine of Eng land in its tssue for June as fol lows; As regards the War Loan, we read that "the city of Belfast contributed 25,000,000 and Ul ster 85 per cent of the total rais ed in Ireland for this purpose. ' It has been sometimes alleged that the Protestants in the South and West of Ireland re ceive fair, or even generous treat merit from the Romanists in the matter of election as county councillors. Well, let the fi- ures speak and the public judge. In Connaught there are 23,273 Protestants, but they have not a single representative on the county council. In Munster, though they num. ber 60,715; they are entirely un represented. In Leinster, owing to the fact largely in a few places, they have secured twelve sea-s,. but this representation is utterly in adequate, as the Protestant pop ulation of that province is 107, 230. Thus outside Ulste- there are only twelve Protestant county councillors, while the Rebanish members are 789. This shows a deliberate policy on the part of the latter to ex clude Protestants from all parti cipation in local govrment, not withstanding their relatively large contributions to the rates. "No taxation without represent- j ation" is supposed to be a funda mental principle of dem jcracy, but in three fourths of' Ireland well to-do ratepayers have no in fluence in the expenditure of the rates, soley because of sectarian animosity. The subservient and unthink ing pfhcials in this country who believe that papal support in Ire land and in America depends on their interference with the ques tion of Home Rule for Ireland, a matter which concerns England only, can certainly gain some enlightment from the above. Do our congressman and sena tors in this country want to put Protestant Ulster under this same yoke, which in all proba bility would cripple her efficiency in this world war? Little won der England wants to keep Ulster jree from papal domination when ia contrast with the rest of Ire land it is doing so much to ad vance the interest of the entente allies. Further evidence as to just what kind of a move this move for Irish freedom is, is. -set forth very clearly in an editorial contained in the Boston Transcript issue for July 7th:- A; republic in Ireland could only exist on the basis of England's complete conquest, on land and sea by the Germans: for Irish in dependence of England could be maintained onl v bv ftermnv or dPC -y -Y ftnUV Or strong- as Let us see what the situation is. Great Britain and England lie side by side. They a rei sep arate but closely neighbored por tions of the same island group Their lands are on opposite sides of the North Channel, are only twenty-five miles apart. The western shores of Euglarsr and Scotland make a bend which strategically-holds Ireland wi;h in its lines, and at the same tirat .presents Ireland as a cattfile sticking. into Grt Britian. Great Britain's sea road to the world lies past Ire lie Ireland land's door; in fact is .Lnglands Atlantic door. Ireland completely blankets the English coast. It i it were independent and un friendly, or if it were nominally independent and leagued with an unfriendly power, England Scotland would be but a pawn it Europe's game. If England ships could not ride in their owr harbor at Queanstown, the might as well keep off the seas altogether. Now this is the ven thing no doubt thai Darrdl Figgis and his fel low Sinn Feiners would like U see: but the question is; How dc they expect ever to bring it a- bout, so long as there is an ounce of strength left in ttiP Rn'tUcV. nation. The population of Eng-land, Scotland and Wales is 41,689 384 that of Ireland is ,4,375,54 including Ulster. The disparity of streng-th and resource is vast ly greater than that of popu lation. Great Britai sormous navy Ireland not a ship. Great Britam haa an im merif.e army Ireland soarce a single musket. Nothing- ever more impossible to England was ever suggested than the iude dependence of Ireland and noth ing was ever more Quixotic than the suggestion that Ireland will be able to gain complete indepen dence alone. For the fact that the' must always have some po- litical connection with England Irishmen have only the Almighty to thank, who placed their small er and poorer island in the physi cai armsota greater and nr.hpr inland. his being indisputably the case, the onlv nossihlp vnro fv Mr Darrell's entirely independent Irisrf republic in two years or in two hundred years, restsV upon tiie overthrow of England and is whet makes an agitation for in dependence now a hostile and a warlike act, a German act, a- gainst Great Britain. It is what makes the advocacy of in dependence for Ireland just now in the United Statoe fc. (-4. k V. O a proceeding of a warlike nature against a country with which the United States is allied It is consequently a very mis chievous agitation, from Ameri ca's point of view and any indul gence in it on the part of Ameri can citizens gives a measure of their loyalty, or lack of loyalty, to this country, and shows us that they are willing to this which is distinctly on the side of our enemy. Germany. From the showing it seems clear that those "Friends of Irish Freedom" in this country who are demanding '-Freedom for Ireland nw, are steering a course as directly in opposition to the allied cause, the settle ment of which in accordance with their views, would without doubt be a calamity to the en tente government and as unjust to Ulster as it is in accordance with the program Germativ would direct were sh given fiee range to do so.
