The War in Ireland SOME ENGLISH AND FOREIGN CRITICISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 10 May 1921

Thc War in Ireland . --^- . SOME ENGLISH AND FOREIGN CRITICISMS. Self-interest is beginning to make evident to Englishman of vari-, ous classes that Lloyd George's mil- itary rule in Ireland must be ended for their own" advantage, as well as for that of the Irish people. Thus, a recent editorial in the organ of Eng- lish Labor, the Daily Herald: "The Government, which has turned loose its forces to burn and slaughter in the hope of breaking the spirit of the Irish people, is not likely to hes- itate over the employment of the same .method in-times of grave in- dustrial dispute: and crisis, to break the spirit of the British people. Lawless violence grows by its own exercise. And, even if Labor's con- science, could suffer it to acquiesce in these {horrors, its- interest . would not suffer it to acquiesce. It dare not let these things go. on." " -\ "Our^ciyilisatibn "is made ari* ab- surdity" and our boasted British name dragged in the .dirt^Sir.;John Ämöiii ^n^V'Sack-bf CörjT-^ ' M....

THE FIRST INCOME TAX CASE. MR. WATTS FILES A DEFENCE ' WHICH IS SET ASIDE. , At the Local Court on Wednesday, the nth instant held in Chambers before Special Magistrate Hogan an application was made by Mr. N. W. Barratt, on behalf- of the Taxation Department, to set aside a notice of appearance by Mr. D. C. Watts, on the grounds that it did not disclose some valid grounds of defence. The defendant's affidavit of merit set out as grounds of defence that he was a British subject and that no British subject could be" taxed without his -J consent. The S.M. in setting aside~ the de- fence pointed out that Section no of the Law Court Act, 1886, provides that a defendant is not to appear without an affidavit of defence on the merits when a special summons is issued. The only question was : Does the affidavit of defendant dis- close such a defence ? All outside matters Were not for his considera- "" tion here. The S M. set aside the ap- pearance with us. 6d. costs.
