OUTSIDE THE EMPIRE   WHAT IRELAND WANTS.   NEW YORK MASS MEETING,   NEW YORK, Monday. - An Irish mass meeting to-day passed a resolu- tion asking President Wilson to sup- port the principle of self-determination for Ireland at the Peace Conference. Some speakers deelared that an Irish Republic had already been established, and that the Sinn Feiners did not want Ireland to remain within the British Empire. Dr. Patrick M'Cartan, addressing a meeting gathered to congratulate the Irish Sinn Feiners upon capturing so many seats in the British Parliament, said: "Ireland is now a republic, and is about to appeal to the Powers for re- cognition. If Britain interferes with the Republic's establishment, tho re sultant bloodshed will lio entirely at England's door. The people of Ireland in the recent elections clearly showed thar they wanted only one thing-sep aration from England."
