They were told that it was a privilege to belong to the great British Empire on which the sun never sets. They wanted no more words, or phrases or promises. They wanted action, and they said to England: "The Anglo Saxon race may be all that you say, your mwhza- tion may have all the virtues that you claim for it, but w don't like your taking ways of spreading it. We gave you every chance to make your Anglo Saxon,rule popular in Ireland, and you have failed. We shall now help ourselves." On April 24, 1916, the manhood of Ireland proclaimed the Irish Republic, as a sovereign and independent state. They constituted a provisional government, to administer, the civil and military affairs of the Republic, until such time as a permanent and representative government could be elected by the vote of all the people of Ireland. On Deck.tuber 14, 1918, the people f Ireland voted for the complete eparation of Ireland frcm England. They established a permanent ,gov- ernment. They elected Eamon De Valets president of tlm Irish Repub- lic. They appointed and sent accred- ited agents to every free nation on earth, to assert and maintain the elalm of their Republic.
