FIRE DAMAGED BIG
London, April 16. The committee
which is in charge of the drawing of
an Irish home rule bill, says The
Times, includes J. Austin Chamber

come a member of the war cabinet."
The same jiaper prints an appeal
from Unionist members of Parliament
urging the Immediate introduction of
a measure of home rule as "generous
-as can be devised by the light of the
recent discussions of the Irish con
vention and in harmony with the ul
timate goal of Federal devolution."
