To this end he and alerted Eoin MacNeill about what the IRB was planning.
MacNeill issued a countermanding order, so ensuring the rising, while, in the views of Irish republicans was heroic, was an even greater military fiasco.
Though he had been one of the most active members of the IRB for years, being largely responsible for the re-emrgence of the organisation, and was instrumental in the founding of the Volunteers, Hobson did not involve himself in politics after the Rising.

Pearse and the others on the military committee kept the plans for the rising secret until the truth was forced out of them, literally at the 11th hour, by Eoin MacNeill, chief of staff of the Irish Volunteers.
Like many of the 1916 leaders, MacNeill was a scholar, but, due in part perhaps to his Northern Irish birth, he was cannier and more sceptical than Pearse the blood-drunk poet.
MacNeill was willing to go along with a military uprising only if it had some chance of success.

Irish organization founded in 1893 to promote the use of the Irish language.
Established by a Protestant academic, Douglas Hyde, a Catholic intellectual, Eoin MacNeill, and a Catholic priest, Fr Eugene O'Growney of Maynooth, the Gaelic League successfully halted the decline in the use of Irish by organizing language classes and social events, and establishing the language as a subject taught widely in national schools.
The movement was initially confined to an urban-based bourgeois intellectual elite but grew in popularity in the early 20th century to form part of what became known as the cultural nationalist movement.

It seems that British spies in the Irish Volunteers had informed him that Eoin MacNeill, the accepted leader of the Irish Volunteers, had decided not to go ahead with the uprising because of the failure of Casement to get the required German weapons into Ireland.
What Nathan almost certainly did not know was that Patrick Pearse, a young lawyer and member of the IRB, did not agree with him and decided that the rising should go ahead regardless.
MacNeill further hindered Pearse by getting the cancellation of the uprising advertised in newspapers.
