BUTCHERY AT MITCHELLSTOWN
Brutality of the Co'wardly Police and
Terribly Beaten - William
O'Brien in Jail.
LoNtox, Sept. 12.-Captain Plunket,
in obedience to orders from Chief Sec
retary Balfour, visitedl Mitchellstown,
and assisted by detectives and by magis
trates Eaton and Seagrave, had an in
formal inquiry, inspected the barracks
and v'sited the wounded. Less than
twenty police were actually injured,
and only one seriously. Mr. Brunner
says he saw a dozen constables attack
one man with their batons. The man
felle'd three of them with a blackthorn
stick. le also saw a policeman pierce
a horseman with his bayonet, while
another constable thrust his bayonet
into the rider. Independent eye wit
nesses relate that when the first blow
was struck it was impossible to control
the Tipperary men, who attacked the
police like furies. The air was thick
with sticks, but before the police
reached the barracks their anger had
cooled. The people made no attempt
to reach the barracks. Six panes of
glass. in the barracks were broken from
the inside. The walls bear evidence of
a fusiladle of stones. The lower half of
the door was broken, and there were
many bullet marks on the walls opposite.
Mr. Labouchere, in a long letter de
scribing the af'air at Mitchellstown, says,
when he entered the b irracks he found
that the police had dragged two men c
inside and were beating them with t
bludgeons as they lay face downwards.
Mr. Dillon had the greatest difficulty I
in preventing the chief constable from :
rushing out of the barracks with his t
men and shooting right and left. All I
were in a state of the greatest excite- I
ment. There were but few people
ar ' e barracks. The police were I

more unfit for the delicate duties could
not be found on the globe than Sea

sponsible for the deaths that occurred.
The man Shinnick and the boy Casey
are dying from the effects of the wounds
they received on Friday. Casey's ante
mortem deposition has been taken. He
states that he was standing near Shinnick
at one corner of the square, when Con
stable O'Sullivan came to the window of
the barracks and fired at him. Four wit

O'BRIEN SENT TO JAIL.
DUBLIN, September 12.-Mr. William
O'Brien, who was arrested at Kingstown
yesterday, was conveyed to Mitchells
town this morning in custody of officers.
He was accompanied by Mr. Timothy
Harrington and counsel.. Mr. O'Brien
emphatically denies that he boarded the
steamer at Kingstown to avoid arrest,
his object being simply to see Mr. La

Mr. O'Brien wa. enthusiastically re
ceived by a large crowd on his arrival at
Limerick. In an address Mr. O'Brien
said he niever went on a journey that
promised more for the cause of Ireland
than the one he was now making. The
government might (close his lips, but
there was a spirit left in Ireland to day
that all the bayonets at their command
conld not silence.
The mayor, mnembers of the munici
pality and promine:at citizens met Mr.
O'Brien at the corn depot. Two hun
dred policemen and a strong force of
military escorted O'Brien to the court
house, where a form~al charge was made
against him, and he was removed to jail.
The streets were crowded with people.
The mayor complained to Magistrate
Gardiner of the presence of the military
and the police, whieb he said were not
needed, and were calculated to irritatei
the populace. The streets through which
O'Brien was taken to jail were lined
with troops. Stones were thrown at the I
police escorting O'Brien and several, of;
of them were wounded. The police then
charged the crowd, using their baton
freely and injoring many of the specta

GOOD NEWS FROM STANLEY.
The Explorer and His Expedition in
the Interior of Africa.
LONDON, September 10.-A dispatch
from St. Paul de Loanda. under date of
eeptember9, states that Major Bartellot, tl
ommander of the cam on the Aruwimi,
had sent advices to Leopoldsville that
he had received news from Henry ,
V. Stanley, dated July 12. Stanley was j
:hen ten days' march in the interior, and b
was still proceeding up the Aruwimi,
which he had found navigable above the of
-apids. He had launched the steel
xhalebort and the rafts. The members c
>f the expedition were in good health, st
tnd provisions were easily procured in ,
he large villages. The country showed
gradual rise toward high table land. A
aratvan of 450 men followed the expedi
ion on the left bank of the river, and an at
tdvance guard of forty natives of Zanzi
)ar. led by Lieut. Stairs, foraged for T
mpplies. Stanley expected to arrive on in
Fitly 22, at the centre of the Mabsdi dis- et
rict, and to reach Wadelai by the mid- of
le of August. The advance had been ca
o peaceably accomplished that Stanley tl
tad instructed Bartellott that he would in

A Maine Eviction, h
From the Chicago Tribune. d
A pathetic story comes from Portland, a
MIe., of an old lady who has almost c:
reached her 90th year, and who was for- p

shanty where she had dwelt for some d

vas $3 per month, and a notice had been la
;erved on her to quit. Not being able
o undlerstand -its purport she remained ti
n the building beyond the time allowed tI
icr by law, and a constable was sent b
vith orders to put her out. She received g:
iimJrindly, and was much flattered by tU
vhat she supposed was a friendly call. ej
L'he account of the eviction is thus it
The grief and fear of the old woman tr

'Police, police," and as the articles were ol
