Excerpt from What Shall We Do in Ireland What is sometimes vaguely kwn as the Irish Question has had many phases. It is t always that the most important comes to the front. During the last few years, however, Irish questions have undergone a considerable change. To-day the question which most concerns Irishmen is t, as many Englishmen seem to think, Home Rule, but land. On this question the tenant farmers of Unionist Ulster march in line with Nationalist Ireland. While we in England are still arguing about Mr. Gladstone's Home Rule Bills, Irishmen, with an amount of practical common-sense with which they are seldom credited, while t for a moment modifying their demands for legislative independence are uniting to secure the immemediate settlement of the land troubles. This is a subject which gets nearer home to the hearts of the people than any other question can do. Unionist and Home Rulers have joined hands and are at one as to the cause of their troubles, and the way out of them. What these troubles are, and the way Irishmen would find a way out of them, I shall describe in detail later on. It is sufficient to say here that Irish people are determined to put an end to the present condition of land tenure which has drained the country of its resources and driven their sons into exile. Here surely is an object lesson for Englishmen. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
