"Next Sunday, the anniversary of the
sinking of the Lusitania, will witness
the final decision of the question of
war or peace between Germany and
the United States"
This statement is made on the basis
of information, the fullinature of which
the correspondent is not permitted to

solutely reliable authority.
This does not mean that Germany's
answer to President Wilsdn's last

not be despatched to Washington to-

possible only after Washington had

Paris, May 3.-The French counter
offensive at Le Mort Homme, the im-
portant height on the west bank of the
river in which progress was made on
several occasions last week, resumed
late this afternoon with an assault
which won further German positions
and gave the French about 100 pris-
oners. The extent of the trenches oc-
cupied has not yet been announced.
There was a violent artillery bom-
bardment today in the Avocourt sector
but this was not followed up by an in-
fantry attack. Three companies of
German infantry, about 750 men, were
used last night in a small attack made
on French positions in the Argonne
between La Harazee and Le Four de
This attack of last night, although
participated in by' only a small body
of troops, was preceded by a lively
bombardment with gas shells. It was
successful for the moment. The Ger-
mans gained a foothold in advanced
French trenches but they were unable
to hold them and had to retire, suf-
fering heavy losses.

Secretary of Ireland is Blamed for
Failure to Prevent
London, May 3.-As the sun rose
over the high grim walls of the Tower
of London today it witnessed down in
the historic execution court, the last
act of the drama of the "Easter Re-
public of Ireland," played to the tune
of rifle bullets from four successive
firing squads that snuffed out the
lives of the four chief rebel leaders,
who eight days ago had raised the
curtain to let rebellion play its piece
of terrorism unconfined.
Patrick H-. Pearse, "the provisional
President nof Ireland," James Connel-
ly, "commander-general of the Irish
republican army," Thomas J. Clark,
and Thomas MacDonah, court mar-
tialled and convicted of treason, were
shot to death to pay the penalty of
their Easter dream.
In a cell not far from the scene of
the execution sat Sir Roger Casement,
a prisoner in the Tower awaiting trial
for treason. The rifle shots could be
plainly heard in the silent prison
room of the knight who was arrested
a few days before the rebellion broke
out while attempting to land arms
from a German auxiliary on the Irish
Accepts Birrell's Resignation
Shortly after Premier Asquith, in
opening this morning's session of
Parliament, had announced the fate
of the four Sinn Fein leaders, Augus-
tine Birrell, chief secretary for Ire-
land, handed in his resignation. The
premier promptly accepted it. Birrell
explained he was laying down his of-
fice upon having been assured that
the insurrection had been quelled.
Subjected to bitter attacks in parlia-
ment and in the press from the mo-
ment of the Dublin outbreak, Birrell's
position had become untenable. The
chief grievance' against him. was that
on the day the rebellion broke out he
had assured the government and par-
liament that the situation was well in
hand. The attack grew in scope and
fervor, as the rebellion pressed
through the week instead of subsiding
instantly and there were many who
blamed him directly for the whole sit-
uation, charging, him with a lack of
foresight and unpreparedness to meet
such an emergency.
