The sensational attempt to assassinate Viscount French, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, has brought the eternal drama of Ire- land to a violent and unexpected cli- max, with the result that the home rule act now assumes superimpor-tanc- c. It was Intended originally to pro- rogue Parliament after Lloyd George had outlined the scope of the new measure In the House of Commons to- morrow. Now there is a possibility that the bill may bo rushed .thrpugh before Christmas. The homo rule bill now looms as the biggest political event of the year and all parties are awaiting eagerly the pronouncement of In some quarters it is even suggested that Ireland will form the main issue of the coming general election. While the motive back of the wanton outrage in Dublin in the cir- cumstances will have a material effect on the fate of the homo rule measure, it is generally anticipated that this motive will have an even greater in- fluence on the Government's general policy rgarding Ireland, which had been formulated some months previous to the Phccnlx Park attack. Hoped to Force n Rebellion. Regarding the motive for 'the att- empt on Viscount French's life the general trend of the British press was, as outlined in a despatch to The Sun yesterday, that the outrage was per- petrated in order to provoke st?rn re- pression, which it was hoped wo,uld drive Ireland into open rebellion. Alone of all the London papers the Sunday Times points out the supreme importance of the Irish Question with the strengthening of Anglo-Americ- relations. , \It (the Irish question) will Involve more than Ireland,\ says the \newspaper. \It Is scarcely posslblo In England to realize how much the political future of the world hinges upon this problem of handling Ireland. It has become, not only In the United States, but every- where, a test of British sincerity; and upon the credit of this country, to a large degree, the hope of a new order for the world rests. It may, perhaps, be contended that the Irish Question con- cerns only ourselves. No one outside of these islands thinks so.\ The Irish policy which Lloyd George will outline was the basis In responsible Vnlonlst circles, of considerable criticism of the Government's recent coercion of the Sinn Fein. This criticism can be stated roughly as follows: The latest administrative blunder was the suppression of the Freeman's Jour- nal That act was nothing less than futile madness. If offensive articles were to be used as a pretext for sup- pression, then similar action could have been taken against the Daily Herald or fven the Timea. The suppression of newspapers always has proved the weak- est and is the most course upon which the Irish Administration could embark. . ' As for coercion, there's no hope for It now, the Unionists contend. The Lloyd George Government in a general way has taken a Arm stand and will offer certain beginnings for a way out of the difficulty, but not In a manner usually recommended and moro or less vaguely imagined outside Ulster. Sinn Felnera in the Majority. The new bill Is etty sure to te re- jected. The signs are plain that the \Sinn Felners are now an absolute ma- jority In three-fourt- of Ireland, and nothing will satisfy them but an Indepen- dent Irish republic, Including Ulster. Great 'Britain, howevor, will never put Ulster under their heel, and by them- selves the Sinn Fein can never take It. Altnln, the Roman Catholic Church will not be 'satisfied with anything short of direct or oblique coercion of Ulster. The r.smand of the church rs county option. This, It Is held, would mean civil \war and the last 'state of Ireland would be worse, even, than the first The'Government bill, In view of many competent to Judge, will be rejected by the Sinn Felners and the church, but will be accepted on Its merits by the many lrl.h Nationalists of all shades. It will concede tho widest powers consistent any fundamental Integrity or safe defence of the British Isles as a whole and will contain the most generous finan- cial provisions. It will provide both for the unity of Ireland and the autonomy of Ulster. There will be one legislature for three-fourt- of Ireland and another hr North Ireland, together with a link- ing legislature for matters common to tne whole of Ireland. 71th the facts of the situation as they now remain.

Music, faithful servant of the maestro's art. was tho only eulogy at tjio services. Singers he loved chanted the requiem hidden behind mountains of flowers that banked the width and breadth of the Immense stage. The Auditorium orchestra, which was his pride, sounded the people's lovo and praise. The orchestra pit was empty; tho musicians also were concealed from view among the thou- sands of floral tributes which wero sent as a token of last respect by his thousands of friends throughout tho country. Spoken words wero not heard. Tho services began at 3 o'clock. Tho Au- ditorium, the scene of many of Cam-panln- i's opera triumphs, was packed from pit to dome with an assembly truly representative of Chicago's mu- sical world. Tho boxes wero filled to cverflowins with the patrons of tho opera, with the exccpUon of the box of tho late director. This box was banked with white flowers, practically all of which had been sent by the members of the opera company of which he -- was the leader. Andltorlntn In Darkness. Not a word was heard from tho Im- mense throng of mourners as tho large purple drop curtains were slowly pulled apart revealing the stage, representing the Cathedral scene from \Parsifal.\ The entire Auditorium was In dark- ness. There were only two blue lights on the stngo. Two white candles burned at each entranco from the wings. Two candles shed their pals light as a guard of honor over the casket In which the late maestro lay still In death. The bier occupied the centre of tho stage. The chancel, where Campanlni di- rected, wan devoid of floral decorations. One blue light cast Its flickering rays over the score of his favorite opera, \Falstafr which was flung carelessly on the rack, and his baton acted us an anchor to the score. So slowly were tho curtains pulled apart that It was fully five minutes be- fore the entire stage was revealed. Many devoted admirers of the Irapres-sarl- o could not control their emotions and covered their faces with their hand- kerchiefs. These Incidents of emotion seemed to take simultaneously with the large gathering and the outbursts of grief came from all parts of the house. A prelude by Salnt-Saen- s, the \Deluge was played by the Chicago Opera Orchestra, conductor. Marcel Charller. The \Requiem\ by Verdi fol- lowed, sung by Alcssandro Bond, ac- companied by the orchestra conductor, Teofllo de Angells : then a selection from the orchestral works of Bizet conductor, Louis Uasselmans, then tho Inflammatus from Stabat Mater, by Rossini, sung by Rosa Ralsa, accompanied by the or- chestra, conducted by Glno Marlnuzzl. The programmo ended with the fourth movement from Tschatkowsky's rathe-tlqu- e, conductor, Glno Marlnuzzl. The curtain fell slowly on the scene of memorable beauty and those In the audience who wished passed slowly across the stage to view for the last time the beloved face of tho great artist and the big man. All the artists of the Chicago Opera Association occupied the principal boxes, together with members of the executive Btaff and the board of directors. Mmo. Campanlni sat In box 43, with Harold F. McCormlck, president of tho Chicago Opera Association; Max Ham, ch'ilrman of the executive- committee, and her faithful friend, Francesco Daddl. who has lived night and day for several weeks at the hospital near tho maestro through- out his Illness.

Passengers on the vessel were care- fully guarded from knowledge of what was going on below decks. Even Frank L.

On November 19, while the transport was outward bound with replacements Vr the Amevlcan Army of Occupation, Capt.

By tho ttmo the America reached Brest the conduct ,of the crew decided Capt Ford to rejtrlct shore leave, nnd this led to more serious troubles, amounting to mutiny. At Si.o'clock In the morning of December 4 tho third officer found sixty members of tho crew aboard a water barge alongsldo tho transport. Not until ho threatened to shoot did they return to their stations. Only oiio of the, men got ashore. Less than anhour later some of the men made an attempt to leave the vessel In a lifeboat, and again only drawn re- volvers forced them back. That same day It was learned through tho detectives that an attempt was to be made to let the fires go out, cutting oft the current lighting the ship, so that tho crew might get ashore during the darkness and con- fusion. An armed guard from shore pre- vented this. The return voynge was marked by a number of petty disturbances, Including the breaking open of a number of state- rooms :.nd lockers and the theft of clothes nnd other property.

Although Congress did not adjourn until near midnight last night tho group of men who now hold tho railroad legislation in their control were at work again early Tho Senate conferees nnd managers got together and an ar- rangement was made between them and their House colleagues for the first formal conference Tuesday. If a month of steady work brings agree- ment amonn the conferees it will be a surprise to most of them. Differ- ences, between the Senate and House bills are In some cases declared al- most 'irreconcilable. This Is essen- tially true as to the labor and finan- cial provisions. but tho difficulties of- - reaching an agreement In the, conference do not constitute tho greatest urge to corr-tlnue- effort. Tho uncertainty about President Wilson's Intentions regard- ing trio return of the roads on January 1 and the possibility that he may issue such an order regardless of the status of the (legislation make it highly, de- sirable Un the opinion of legislators that early agreement be reached so that the period between tho return of the roads nnd tho final enactment may be aa brief as possible. A good deal of excitement was caused last week when, after tho visit of some labor nnd 'agricultural representatives to the White House to urge retention of the roads in Government control for two years longer, '.the'lntlmatlon went abroad that the President was Impressed with that programme. Thus it Is possible either that tho President may return the roads wlthbut waiting for tho law to veto' tho bill and pass or thnt ho may demand that tlicy be held longer.

Un- official groups of Senators aro planning to seek some sort of agreement, while the \lrreconcllables\ as far as the league Is concerned, aro planning to back the Knox resolution, believing It will kill the Wilson International plan. Opposition to tho Knox resolution Is certain to be strong, however. The Knox resolution. If ndop'.ed, the lrreconcllables think, quietly would dis- solve the League of Nations. In Its place would arise the American conception of International relations, so generally held beforo Mr. Wilson went to Paris. Set- tlement of disputes by a greater develop- ment of International law and through mediation nnd arbitration along the lines of the Hague tribunal Is what this group believes will result. If the Knox plan Is approved. U. S. NAVY ISN'T DRY: BOOZE IN COMPASSES Daniels Faces a Hard Task in Removing \Evil.\ Spcc(al Cable Detpateh to The Si'N and file rublle Ledger. Coptright, 1519, all righlt reserved. Lonoon, Dec. 21. Has Secretary Dan- iels taken steps to rcmovo all the alco- holic splritB used In ships' compasses? It cannot be said that the American Navy Is completely dry unless this has been done.

SOME LEAVE IN TEARS \When We Come Back We'll Get You Dogs,\ . Snarls Anarchist. EMMA FEIGNS CALMNESS Transport \Buford leaves Un- der Sealed Orders With Full American Crew. In tho arly hours of yesterday morning when most of New York slept jhn army tug crept out of tho Ellis Island slip and nosed her way through the blackness to the Narrows. She drew up alongsldo of a shadowy hulk that proved to bo the United States Army transport Buford riding at anchor In midstream. Obscure forms huddled about on tho deck of tho tug then became sudden- ly animated and developed into human beings loaded down with bundles and valises who struggled In single file up a gangplank to tho bigger boat under .tho escort of a platoon of Infantry .with heavy marching equipment and rifles at the shoulder. And at exactly 6:13 o'clock this tug cast loose and the transport put wvlftly off into tho waters of tho lower bay. Such was tho deportation of Emma I Goldman, Alexander Berkman and 247 other Russian anarchists. Their em- barkation was rcmaikably quiet eava for one defiant shout which pchnpfl across the waters as they were being transferred from the tug to tho trans- port.. This ahout was directed at tho coast guard cutter Manhattan, which wa3 laden with Department of Jus- tice agents and newspapermen, and which stood close by. It was, \Long live the. revolution In America!\ Hound for Ilolthevik Itimnin. To-da- y the transport should bo well out upon the high seas anl her com- mander who took her out under sealed orders should havo learned for wjjat port ho Is bound. While no definite announce- ment of the Duford's destination was made yesterday. It was said 'that nil of tho Involuntary passengers are bound for Bohjhevlk Russia, and It was Intimated that tho vessel would stop at one of the three 'open Finnish ports. From either of these places shipment by rail to the Finnish-Russia- n frontier would be a sim- ple matter. It would be posslblo In this manner to turn tho party over to tho Bolshevik authorities at a point but a very short distance from Petrograd. and If would not be necessary for them to pass through territory occupied by tho JWhlte Guards\ of Admiral Kolchak, who the Reds fear would put them to death. The sealed orders In which wero con- tained the name of the port where the Reds will be set nshoro were In the poa. session of Col. Charles H. Hilton, who represented the War Department. He accompanied the deportees to see them actually landed and will hand the orders to the transport's commander when well out to sea. Another officer on the Buford was Lleut.-Co- l. Kugeno J. Kly of tho Military Intelligence Section. Col. Kly, with off- icials of the Department of Justice, gays particular attention to the shlp'a per- sonnel. Kvcry man of the crew, the military guard and the special civilian guard is American born. The Govern- ment authorities made certain that there would be no opportunity for Berkman and Goldman to make converts to an- archy. It was explained at the offices of the Department of Justice. This deportation proceeding, the most remarkable ever undertaken ry this Gov- ernment for many reasons, was the di- rect result of tho extensive raids con- ducted by tho Department of Justice throughout tho entire countrv nn v.,. bcr 8 and within tho few .i.o..- - J! after. Those raids were all directed i mm urbanization, me union of Russian Workers. Attorney-Gener- al A. Mitchell Palmer, Deputy Attorney-Gener- Francis p. Garvan and other legal experts of the Department of Justice ordered thr. mirU after they had thoroughly perused the consiuuuon ot me union of Russian Workers and had become convinced that It was purely an anarchistic organiza- tion pledged to overthrow tho Govern- ment by revolution and violence. Of the band that was sent out vestcr. day all but ten wero membeis of this anarc.nsiic organization who had been taken In the recent raids. The denort- - ees Included Peter Binnkl, leader of the union, and many others who have been extremely active In organizing IU many Drancnes irom ncre to me ra.-!f- l: coast. Kmma Goldman and Bcrkmin were among the few who are not members of that organization, their sailing being duo to the fact that the order for their de- portation came at a convenient time, when they could easily bo packet.' away with the rest ot the memb-.r.- i of tho band. Moro Deportation to Coine. The Department of Justice Is counting at present upon arranging similar whole sale deportations In the near future. Chief William J. Flynn nnd his opera- tives are busy amassing evidence against other seditious organizations. It Is also known that there aro still upward of 100 Reds held by the Immigration authorities who for ono reason or another were un able to go on this boat, nnd I'. Is thought that the transport Kllpatrlck, y'cter ship of the Buford, whlcli Is bc'ng held nt her pier In South Brooklyn, may get under way with another P.cd cargo within the next few days. Yesterday's affair was the first whole sale deportation of Red plotters in our history; a thing lor wnicn minions or good Americans hay peen crying f,or a
