In commenting on the above notice.
Attorney Betty states he understands
that are 22 such Iwrmits in existence
and that the granting of them by the
city council was nothing more than a
mere subterfuge of the provisions of
the Moon bill. A number of these were
granted'on vacant lots and Mr. Betty

THE MASSACRE OF S3IERWICK.
JHILE no declaration of war had been
made between Spain and England, ac
tual war did exist in 1570-1580; the
English freebooters under Drake. Ra
leigh, Humphrey and others raided the
Spanish-American colonies and plundered Spanish commerce; English armies
aided the revolvers in the Netherlands against their Spanish rulers; and the
Spaniards retaliated in many ways, notably in sending money and munitions
to the Irish, who rejected English rule. The conduct of English soldiers and
rulers in Ireland in Elizabeth's reign was marked by a brutality and savagery
: than American Indians might shudder at ; burnings, slaughterings, cruelties and
atrocities were the rule, not the exception; and probably Irish hisCory knows
: no more atrocious and bloody-minded scoundrels than those revered British
heroes, Walter Raleigh, Edmund Spenser, the "Gentle Poet," and Lord Gray de
Wilton. Spenser is called the "sage and serious Spenser"; his "Faerie Queen"
mnd other poetry have excited the tearful admiration of Englishmen ; yet, as a
plain matter of fact, he was a politician, grafter, plunderer and cold-bloods
murderer. In his "View of the State of Ireland" he advocated the extermina
tion of the population by sword, torch and famine ; and when not engaged in
writing verse he was engaged in cruelty and murder.' His friend, Walter Ra
leigh, believed in murder and rapine ; and both were ardent supporters of Gray
de Wilton, lord deputy of Ireland, who seasoned his murders and burnings with
prayer and religion. Three-quarters of a century later that other gentle mis
sionary, Oliver Cromwell, made Edmund Spenser's "View" his guide book and
gospel in Ireland. , ; : '.
That earnest and Christian historian, James Anthony Frou?e, writing of
this period, says: "The Irish, It is true,' were not wholly savages; but to
those intending colonists (the .British settlers and soldiers) they were of no
more value than wolves and would have exterminated them with equal in
difference." These gentle heroes were engaged in spreading civilization and pure re
ligion in Ireland at this time. v -
Along in 1570 the Spaniards laid out Fort de Oro at Smenvlck. across tie
bay from Dingle in Kerry, but it was poorly built and of little military value.
Here m 1580 came a fleet from Corunna, acting under the Spanish minister's
orders, and landed some 800 Italian soldiers, under Don Bastian de San Josepho
and other Spanish officers, and they brought some 4000 stand of arms to help
the Irish in revolt in the southwest. 'The expedition seemed to lack military
value and the situation of the fort made it an easy prey to a resolute enemy.
Gray of Wilton, with Raleigh and Spenser and about 800 soldiers, marched
against the fort by land while an English fleet came up the bay and cut off any
hope of escape or assistance by sea. Bad management and lack of foresight did
not bring them in touch with the Irish they came to assist who, armed with
the guns and munitions they had brought, would have made the advance of
Gray's force an impossibility. The Spanish force was trapped, and after a
feeble resistance they parleyed, surrendered and marched out with folded en
signs, laid down their arms and were stripped of their armor. Gray, Raleigh
and Spenser were as polite and nice as could be to the captives ; and when
all the arms and munitions were secured and their armor had been laid aside,
Gray gave the word and Raleigh, dividing the prisoners into suitable and handy
squads, marched them out on the sands and had some 600 of them murdered
in cold blood. A number of wives of Irish leaders, who had sought refuge in
the fort from the troubles and raids of the country, several of whom were preg
nant, were hanged by the gentle poet, and the Christian hero and several priests
were served in the same way. The officers were spared for ransom and ex
change, a clemency very displeasing to the Virgin Queen.
Probably no more deliberate, cold-blooded and savage murder by whole
sale is chronicled in the history of this bloody Elizabethian period ; yet Froude
and a dozen other historians of his kind are able to defend and applaud it on
the score that Spain had hanged Englishmen when captured in the patriotic
work of piracy against the commerce of a country with which England was at
Seace. Every time one reads the transactions of the Anglo-Saxon poets and
eroes of Elizabeth's day in Ireland one begins to feel that Alva was an altru
ist and Jesse Pomeroy a lover of his kind. One of the pleasant laws decreed by
Elizabeth's romantic courtiers for the spread of light and leading orders that
."All brehons, curraghs, bards, rhymers, friars, monks, Jesuits, pardoners, nuns
and such like shall be executed by martial law."
Elizabeth's reign was the golden age of England ; and these were some of the
rolden fruit. Despite Smerwick and a hundred other minor slaughters, Eng
ish children are taught to regard Walter Raleigh as a noble hero and Edmund
Spenser as a gentle poet. There is still hope for the future fame of Gerommo
and the Apache Kid. . -

City Aid Asked. Unless the city
council agrees to share part of the ex
pense of maintaining the flaming arc
lamps as special illumination for down
town business streets, the merchants
will abandon the project. The mer-1
chants were about to place 18 or 20
flaming arc lamps in the down-town
district, when it was discovered that
the improvement would entail an ex
pense too great for them to bear. The
cost to maintain a lamp of this type is
estimated at $5 a month. It was sug

to share in the expense, and the mat
