Recent Comparisons Instructive, Not
to Say Startling.
Special Cablegram to The Star.
DUBWIN, August 27.?A return has been
issued to the members of the Dublin corporation
by Edmund W. Eyre, city treasurer.
regarding the comparative cost of the
policing of Dublin and the various other
cities ot England and Wales. The return
is a most Instructive, not to say startling,
one. It would appear that Dublin prac
tlcally pays double the average cost of
policing any of the English cities. In Dublin
the police are a special department,
controlled by a commissioner, constituted
undeir a special act of parliament, by which
provision is made for taxing the citizens
for their maintenance at the rata of 8d.
In the pound on the valuation of the city.
The result has proved that, though crime
Is diminishing In Dublin notwithstanding
its growing population, the cost of policing
has grown with the Increase In the valuation
of the city, until the financial Imposition
on the city has become monstrous. I
Cor Inntanr-a the valuation of the metro
polltan area of Dublin In 1850 was 645.000
pounds; the valuation for the year 190506
was 1,345.000 pounds. The result of this
Increase In the valuation of the city haa
been that the cost of the police In Dublin
has grown up from 71,000 pounds In 1850
to 160,950 pounds In 1906-06. The strength
of the force practically remains the same.
The Dublin force In 1850 waa 1.137 and
in 1905-06 It was 1,194. The cost of maintaining
the police force was, therefore, increased?In
flfty-flve years?from 71,9**)
pounds to 160,950 pounds. Dublin Is generally
known as one of the most peaceable
cities In the three kingdoms. In 1870 the
number of Indictable offenses was 5,180; In
1906-06 the number fell to 3,235. The number
of summary convictions In 1870 was
47,310, and this showed a great falling oft
In 1905-06, the number being 29,9t)0.
Mr. Boland, M. P.. Is endeavoring to

high Import duty on Irish-cured

in the course of the negotiations

diplomatic channels, that this will reduce
the number of Judges to fifteen.
The proposal does not go any further.

hope the other continents will take slmi'lar
action, that Asia will be allotted two I
judges and Europe nine.

Significant Remarks of Lord Bishop
of Killaloe.
Special Cablegram to The Star.
DUBLIN, August 27.%Speaking at a
special meeting of the County Clare agricultural
show committee, the Most Rev.
Dr. Fogarty, lord bishop of Killaloe, chairman.
who presided, said that so far as he
rnilld cap th A nnlv hrma fc\r /^nnntru
? ?? ? / .?VWU?IV? /
was agriculture. The chances, or even the
possibilities, of Ireland ever becoming a ,
great manufacturing center were, he
feared, nil. In that department the world
had got the start of them. They found
themselves today without manufactures, or
the means of starting them, for any little
Industry they could hope to originate with
the limited capital at their disposal would
be swamped Immediately by the monster
Institutions abroad, who could afford to
dump their surplus products here for the
mere pleasure of killing them, unless they
got protection."
"But with agriculture the case is different
In that we have a living industry?one in
which the people have been engaged for
generations, which is adapted to tueir natural
tastes and habits, and for which the
local conditions of climate and soil are
most favorable. If Ireland cannot be a
manufacturing country, she can easily be
an agricultural country, just like Denmark
is, with less favorable conditions.
"But if we are to hold our own in agriculture
from abroad we must be up and
doing. The butter Industry and the poultry
Industry are in a backward condition,
and the markets for them, which at one
time were almost exclusively ours, have
been captured from us by nations who have
to carry on these industries under conditions
far less favorable' than ours. We all
know how much this country has lost of its
once great and profitable business of breeding
and rearing horses. And this condition
of things will go on getting worse from
year to year unless we pull ourselves together
and set ourselves with determination
to make the most of what we have, to
e iucate ourselves and improve our methods
of agriculture until we are able to hold
our own against allcomers."
It is strongly urged that one industry
which Ireland can revive with advantage is
the manufacture of cider. More than a
century ago the south of Ireland was
famous for its elder.

others were arrested eftrly this morning
and are now being tried by a special court,
convened for the purpose, on the charge of
taking part in "an unlawful assembly likely
to cause a riot."
Mr. Parrell had been holding meetings
throughout his constituency, at which exciting
scenes occurred between nationalists
and members of the Sinn Fein Society.
In addition, many cattle have been driven
from the grazing lands district, which, tlie
prosecution alleges, was encouraged by Mr.
Farrell and other speakers. Large forces
I of police are being dispatched here, trouble
being anticipated.
Mr. Farrell is the editor and Droorietor of
the Longford Leader, a nationalist newspaper
circulating In the counties of Longford,
Westnuath, Roscommon and Leitrim.
and is the author of "History of the County
of Longford." At the general election of
11(00 Mr. Far re 1 was returned unopposed
from North Longford, succeeding Justin
McCarthy, who resigned.
