tho prisoner was unbounded.
Counsel for the prisoner
injected to the question of Murphy, the
Crown's counsel, m:k' alluded to Carey a
in "InfaiiMiis witness." Great excite
ment followed the le.tiark and it drew a
sharp rebuke frm t'i9 1'iu.glstrtite. Carey's
ippcaiance nt the witness taOiu fronted a
profound sensation. He was hissed by the
jiber prisoners. He deposed: He Joined
ibe Fenian Brotherhood lu 'li'J. Ho men
tioned a members of the Fenian
directory Thonus Brennan, late
secretary of the Land League, and
Jamas O'Connor, who was introduced to
P. J. Sheridan, who w is disguised as a
priest and passed under toe namu of
Father Murphy, Sh.M-id.in told witness ho
was watching Forster, then the Chief
Secretary of Ireland, and was extending
the Society of Invincible, throughout the
country. He promised to send him some
weapons from London. Carey further
.leposed that James Mupet, chairman of
the Dublin bram-h. who established
the Solely lor the Extirpation of Tyrants,

ed. Carey's evidcuc inculpates P. J.
Sheridan and Jam M.iliottu plnttin? to

as also plotting to assassinate tail Cowper.
His testimony proves.
THK ASSASSINATION OA.VO.

during March, lS-sj, to "remove"
Forster at a point opposite St. Mark'
Church, Brunswick street. All tho prison
er met around the Koval Oak tavern on May
S, except Mullet, who wi imprisoned'.
Carey swore tie unj the other mourners of
the a'siassinaiion society believed that the
funds for the murderers came from the
Land League. He related persistently
dogging Forster for days with a view to hf
murder. He swore the murderers were
posted concerning Forster's movements by
telegrams from London, otenlbly about
hore racing. He said ho drove with
bis children iu a rah to tha tirst
rendezvous of the murderers. After he
alighted. Fit Harris was to drive them
dome. It was Brady, he testified, who
took 1 share a the prtuclpal slabber, aud
who afterward cut Murko s throat.
Carey deposed, ;hit all tha prisoner,
except one, were members of the organi
zation, as was also "Frank Byrne," of
Londou, whose w,fe broi.ght tho arms. Ha
swore that Stephen and Leonard
