The Cork trades, who will be repre

large batch of candidates, are holding
meetings throughout the city and con

Mr. Vesey Knox, M. P., has written to
the Nationalist Association of the city of
Derry stating that family reasons will
compel him to resign as soon as next ses
sion opens. This means a contest, proba
bly in February next.
A very attractive concert in aid of the
very poor children was given in the
Town Hall, Rathmines, Friday evening.
Mr. O'Brien Butler kindly consented to
sing his new song, "Donnail Dhuv," and
a number of well-known artists contrib
uted to the programme.
In the Dublin Mansion House Thurs
day an important conference of Inde
pendent Nationalists was held, the Lord
Mayor presiding. A subscription in aid
of the Independent Home Rule Fund
was opened and it was stated that the
total amount handed in or promised was
The question of a Catholic University
is being prominently discussed at public
boards in the South, and resolutions urg
ing the Government to concede the
legitimate demand of the Irish people
have been adopted in many cases. A
gratifying feature of the discussion is
that Protestants are supporting these
resolutions and admitting the justice of
the Catholic claim.
The annual smoking concert by the
members of the Shannon Rowing Club
took place at the boat-house on Wednes
day night, and proved a very happy
and genial function. That it kept up
the old tradition of this popular and
time-honored club goes without saying,
and it must be admitted the members are
deserving of all the credit that can be
bestowed on them.
While Mr. Edward Cummins, of South
King street, Dublin, was driving to his
residence on a hackney car the horse
fell opposite the Bank of Ireland, knock
ing him heavily to the ground. He was
-conveyed to Mercer's Hospital, where he
Kf was attended to by the resident surgeon,
who found that his ami was injured. The
injuiies, however, were not of such a
nature as to detain him in hospital.
On Thursday four families living in the
main street of Loughrea were evicted
from their homes by the Matquis of
Clanricarde for non-payment of rent.
The property on which the houses are
situated was, until some short time ago,
disputed. The moment it came into the
hands of Lord Clanricarde he put the
evictions in motion. There was no dem
onstration of any kiud at the eviction.
An exhibition and sale of work, under
the auspices of the Irish Industries Asso
ciation, was opened at the Athentcuin by
the Countess of Mayo. The Countess,
who takes a deep interest in matters per
taining to local industry and manufact
ure, is Vice President of the association,
and made a very practical address prior
to declaring the exhibition open. The
exhibits were numerous and generally of
excellent design and workmanship,
Artisans' dwellings are a boon to every
town, and therefore we hail with pleasure
the introduction of a scheme to build
them in Bray. There is no town in which
proper houses for the laboring man are
so scarce. It is hoped that Mr. Rossiter
will not lose sight of his motion, even
though through a technicality the
scheme can not be put into operation till
the end of next year. The preliminary
work of looking for sites, etc., can be
looked after in the meantime.
Stoker Lynch, who was granted the
Albert medal for conspicuous bravery on
board the torpedo boat destroyer
Thrasher on the occasion of the bursting
of a steam pipe, when he was terribly
injured in rescuing a comrade, was re
moved from the Naval Hospital, Ply
mouth Saturday, and placed on a cork
stretcher for conveyance to his home at
Monetra, near Waterford. Lynch was
in charge of two nurses, and his condi
tion is still considered hopeless.
The nightwatch question and its con
templated abolition in Lemerick on New
Year's Eve is becoming interesting.
, The phase of pensioning or allowing
gratuities to some of the older members
is a very humane one, if it is feasible,
which is doubtful. However, the inten
tion is a praiseworthy one, and it is tc
be hoped, for the old men's sake, that the
local Government Board will look with
favor on the request of the corporation
to grant them permission to make the
allowances in question.
Some little busybodies at Kingstown
have for their own purpose discovered
that Mr. P. P. Hynea is not a National
ist, It is difficult to discover the line of
argument, says a correspondent. True it
is that Mr. Hynea has a business estab
lishment in the township, and equally
true that lie never failed to use his in
fluence for the laboring class, and it is
simply amusing at the present juncture
to discover that some years ago he went
abxaad in opposition to the gentleman

confirmed at Birr, November 23. The
object of the association is stated'
in the circular to be the reinstatement of
evicted tenants at an early date by
purchase, if possible, under the land
acts, and to sustain them and protect
their interests until this is effected. It
is proposed to renew the fight against
land-grabbing, and to form committees

At the meeting of the Limerick corpo
ration, the Mayor presiding, Mr. John
Clune, proposed the followiug resolution:
"That the denial to Irish Catholics of an
university in which they might give,
their sons the advantage of higher edu-1
cation under conditions as fair to their ,
faith as at present enjoyed by Irish1
Protestants in Trinity College, is as ef
fectual a means as the greatest enemy
of this country could devise for her im- j
poverishment and the destruction of her (

same time a gross offense to 3,500,000 of

of West Meath formed the subject of dis

an enormous increase in the county cess j
and no corresponding benefit to the
roads, which were in a disgraceful condi
tion. Mr. A. E. Joyce, County Surveyor,
said he could not contradict such a state
ment, and he had to withhold certificates
of payment for the roads of half the
barony. Several contractors had been
prosecuted and fines had been paid by
them, but this course seemed to have
little effect and more would have to be
prosecuted. Also in the case of roads
neglected by parties he found it difficult
to get others to take them up.
Already there is evidence that the com
ing elections for the Limerick Town
Council will lead to a series of contests
unparalled in the annals of municipal
life, or at least since the reformed corpor
ation act was first passed. For the eight
wards of the city the working classes are
to put forward candidates four to each
ward leaving one vacancy to be com
peted for by any other nspirant for muni
cipal honors. Mr. John Daly will again
seek the suffrages of the Irishtown ward
on the abor ticket. On Thursday a
meeting of the traders and others was
held in the Chamber of Commerce, when
it was resolved to put forward twenty
candidates in opposition to the others.
Ward meetings were held on Wednesday
and Thursday nights by the supporters
of the workers' candidate, at which Mr.
John Daly was the chief speaker, and
resolutions passed pledging support to
the candidates already selected.
A burning accident which occured at
Wexford on Wednesday had a fatal ter
mination. During the week a curiosity
shop was opened in South Main .street,
and a great number of young people
went to see it. On Wednesday evening
a glass case, in which a "natural curi
osity" was preserved by means of oil,
overturned and the oil taking fire the
whole show was set in a blaze. Fortu
nately the last group of admiring young
sters had just departed, but a young
Wexford lad named Leo, who was acting
as an assistant at the exhibition, caught
a large quantity of the burning oil on
his clothes, and ran out in the street
screaming and enveloped in flames. The
boy was horribly burned, and expired
this morning in the County Wexford
Infirmary. The- curiosities which were
being exhibited were all burned to ashes,
and it was only with the greatest diffi
culty the house itself was saved from the
The appearance of Weber's Dainty
Duchess Company at the Buckingham,
commenciug tomorrow, should be a big
attraction for New Year's week. The
Dainty Duchess Company has been pro
nounced the worthiest accomplishment
of Mr. L. Lawrence Weber, to whom the
entire burlesque and vaudeville stage has
been so largely indebted for its success.
The consensus of opinion is unanimous
in the declaration that the costumes and
scenic embellishments of Weber's Dainty
Duchess are fully up to that mark of
superiority for which Mr. Weber is
known. The supporting company of high
class artists is of admirable strength. A
happy feature of the Dainty Duchess
Company is its feminine chorus and the
typical beauty of the members. The
make-up of this organization comprises
the best that money and experience
could procure, as is evident from the fol
lowing names of artists who lend their
talent to the success of the performance:
The celebrated mimic four, the well
known Burke brothers, Kessler and Car
rick, Alleene and Larue, Hayes and
Bandy, Earl and Wilson and Raymond
and Clark. The burlesque, "A Dainty
Duchess," has been ptonounced the art
istic laughing hit of the season.
One of the most magnificently staged
melodramas ever seen in this country
will be the attraction at the Avenue New
Year's day and week beginning Sunday
night. It is the superb production of
"A Guilty Mother," which was such a
great success in all the large cities last
season, its first in this country. Among
the many beautiful stage pictures, is a

with thellghtsjof London in the distance,
London bridge, aj street in London and
Oakley towers, which were struck by

so much. In this mirror is reflected the
murder of which the hero is accused, for
a time. The thrilling and interesting
