HOME RULE. FORCING AN ELECTION. UNIONIST PREPARATIONS. LONDON, Monday. The Parliamentary correspondent of the. "Daily News and Leader" makes a statement to-day which serves to show that some credence may be placed on the reports current of late that a general election in Great Britain is likely to take place shortly. The correspondent declares that the Unionists have issued a circular to their agents advising them to prepare for an election in May. He adds that the Opposition contemplate bringing Parliament to an end before May, pos sibly by means of disorder in the House of Commons, or by the House of Lords suspending the Army Annual Bill. The correspondent advises supporters of Irish Home Rule, especially the Na tionalists, to abandon provocative speeches, imputing that Ulster is "bluffing," and to follow the more conciliatory forms of speech of the Go vernment.
