Dublin, January 20. T"he twenty
persons recently arrested hero were be
fore the police court to-day charged
with conspiracy to murder olllcluls.
Tho court roin was crowded. Oieal
discriminations were exercised in the
admission of citizens. A large crowd
was outride. During the progress of
the hearing of the charges against the
prisoners startling revelations were
niude. An Informer swore several
prisoners, including Corrie a member
of the municipality, were present at a
fenlan meeting wherein the former
was asked to join th6 Inner circle
formed for the assassination of olll
clals. Tho name of the informer is Farrel.
He acknowledges his having taken
part In the plot to assassinate u juror.
Ho swore that one of tho prisoners
named Hanlon informed him lie had
taken part in an attempt to murder
Field; that Brady stabbed Field and
Kelly; also that ho participated in tho
allhir. Farrel also testified that three
pence were collected weekly from the
Fenians to purchase arms ; that the
city had been marked into districts
and military inspections were held oc
casional and at which most of the ac
cused were present. At one of llieso
meetings one John Devoy, who said ho
came from America, presided. The
organization, he said, had existed for
Farrell said the picked men formed
the assassination committee. They
were ignorant of each other. Daniel
Curly gave him a revolver and told
him to atop Fester's carriage opposite
Ellis quay when Jim Kelly and Joe
Brd would do the remainder. The
plot failed ttirough a mistake. Farrel
identiued ivoliy, JJrady, Ui r , lawyer.
and Hoyle an ot whom were present in
the prisoners' dock, as having been
present on Ellis quay when the above
mentioned uttrmpt was made to way
lay Forster. Car Icy was very much
vexed. Farrell said Brady, Kelly and
Rankin, the last of whom is now in
Limerick, followed Forstcr's carriage
in it cab on another occasion and Mao
Mahou who was lately shot, was as
sisting by watching on foot. All the
prisoners were remanded for a week.

started back toward a down grade of
120 feet to the mile. The train con
sisted of two engines, txpiess, mail
and baggage cars, two sleepers, ono
coa-h and a smoker. It went
down grade at a frightful
speed for about four miles, when the

and went over an embankment about
fifteen feet high, carrying with it the
other sleeper, mall, baggage and ex
press cars, which were piled in a spat
tered heap and took 11 round were con
sumed. The coach and smoker kept
on down the grade and were
stopped without leaving the track
about two miles further on. All on

ber of persons were jammed amidst
tho ruins of the train and roasted to
death before the eyes of those helple-s
