'Jh'- thirteen are charged with conspiracy to minder Hurke and Lord Frederick Cavendish and iitlMk Fie d. Ori?at e.xcitemeot ensued when KaVana.h was placed in the witness seat, lxtivunaj-h apparently labored under great excitement. On being sworn, he deposed that be drove B ady, Kelly nnd two other men whom he did not know to Phenix Park on the cm ninsr of the nssa siuation of Cavendish and Bi.ike. ,lnm 's f'nrey and Daniel Deleney were on a at s on the s'de ot the rood in tbe nark. Deianey said they were watching' the Chief 8 -cretary. Euterinir into fuller details, he deposed thai on the 6th of May last he was at the Royal Oak public Mease on Park Cato street. He was en gaged by four men Brady and Kelly and two sti angers. (B.-ai!" here uttered a loud gut tural threat, tint no distinct words wersb.eaid. There was n i laughter to-day among the pris oners w hen Kav inagh identitiel them.) Kp.va nugh then pohatail t Pntrick Dolan y as. an other of the men present. Ho drove the four nv-n into the park by the Tsland Bridge gate to Phenix Monument, nnd along the main road to Gmigh Monument, and there got down. They said there was no siirn of ' skin the goat," mean ing James Fitz-Hariis. the carman. Fitz-Harris her - shouted: " I'ou't call me nick-names." Afterthe prisoner had sicd there was no sign of Fitz-Harris, witness saw hiin with a call coming from the opposite direction and saw four men alight from tho cat). The cab stopped a long way up the road, w.th thn horses' heads turned towarl Dublin. A short lime after he saw two gentlemen approaching, and Beats! a cry. On looking around ho saw one gentleman fall- He did not see the other fall, but the four men he drove to the park jumped on his ear and drove away. Brady s it on the right side of the car. (Kiivnnagh iden tified Fitz-Harris us the driver of tho cub.) Ho deposed that h i saw Lord Cavendish and Burke approa' hing. Some one among those he drove said the tall man was to txi assassin ated. Knvanagh said ho subsoouently drove by the Ch ip d road round town to Pnlmerston 1'nrk. Kelly alighted at the terminus. Brady pu d him 1. Afterthe men left, witness drove to the park; had alighted there; he put a nosebag on his horse while wait ng. He heard a per si n speaking to James O'Brien. Deianey nft erward instructed him (Knvanagh) to look nharp and be ready to start. Upon this ha drove n -arer to the waiting group, which in cluded some persons he did not know. Two gentlemen (not Lord Cavendish anil Burke) were approaching arm in arm. James Carey mill Ii lanoy, who had come back on the car from the place where it was waiting, jumped down and joined tho group. Witness heard some owe say : Tt is the tall man." Kavanagb was then ordered to go f urthcr away by some of the conspirators. As bo did so, witness heard some one, he cou'.d not tell whom, ro P'K'i "Mind, it is the tall man." As the gen tlemen came along either Carey or Deianey seized a white handkerchief. While he was waiting, a cnruinu passed by driving a pas senger around towards Dublin. He was a so passed by some bicyclists. wffneSf sad, on looking around, ho thought he saw only one of them fall, an 1 saw the other, who hud an umbrella, was lying on the ground. On driving from tho scene of the murder, they took the turn t the left, and th n crossed (ho bridge to the tight along Incbscare Boad. Deianey directed bim where to drive. He drove rapidly until he reached a point three miles Irom the pnrk. Here Tim Kelly alighted. He then drove round to Locson Para, and stepped at a public house near Ceeson bridge. Bradj- then paid and dis missed him. On Sunday morning he mot Brady again at Toivns -nd street and received two pounds sterling. Brady afterward bought him a harm-s. He allowed tho car to r main as it was for some time alterwnrl. nnd then had it painted. On tho night that Field was at tacked he was on tho College street stand, .be- Brcuty again ensriigod him. They drove into Fleet street, Delano? then got on thn car, nnd they drove to Hardw ' k street, where th -y ulight d. They told him to wait. While waiting Kelly and Lawrence Huiilan rami" up. Kavanagh said Kelly lost his hat when he mounted the car after the attack on Field The car fe l by a circuitous route. In Town Send street Kelly bomrlit another hat. Atlho gas-works Brady aud Kavanagh wrapped some k ind of swords in paper and threw them into tin1 basin. Brady again paid for the car on this oi" asioii. Ho (Kavanngh) had been twice in Phenix Park before May the fi, with tho four men whom ho drove on Uie day of the murder. Thi mis Doyle was p csent when h" was sworn into the secret society. He identi fied Doyle as having told him he must, on tho day alter the swearing, drive anywhere they required. Prisoner Doylo hcreiiMn ex claimed: " it's a lie!" Kavanagh sa d ho was so near two scene of the ns-assiiiatiou that he heard one of the vic tims cry "Oh I" The tall i ictim (Bnrkc) xvas lying In tho road after this exclamation; tho othi r victim was standing in tbe rood with the umbrella in his hands. Kavanagh afterwards saw hi in lying in the road, as before stated. Knvanatfb deposed that Fitz-Harris on ono occasion told him they wero a tor Judge Law Bon. Kav anagh said he became an imformcr on Thursday last. He had been sworn into a society by Kelly. The task assigned him was to "drive the boys." Kavanagh said that Doylo told him that James Mullett and a lot of big people were at t ached to the society. I'pon Kavanagb entering into further de- tnits ns to various times that he drove the as- sassrns ai't'-r tho Phcn x Park murders, Fitz Harr s called him a "liar." During the reading of h s deposition Kava nagh leaned back in his seat resting his head on his hand with a dogged expression of countenance. Kavanagh's evidence is felt to bo conclu sive. Little can In- added to It. as the Crown will not accept the evidence of Ihe actual p ir ticipants. The prisoners evidently feel that the game is up. All of th"m now exhibit a ns liant demeanor, except James Carey, who sits motionless, g.iimr fixe lly at tho bench. The others move about and hold whispered con ferences, and sometimes laugh at any Inci dent. As the examination progressed the prisoners appeared in sheer desperation. Not ono of them looked toward the court except Hanlun. 'n Kavanagh Id ntifying Debiney and James Casey, the latter of whom ho said he knew we I, thete was such n commotion iii court that the Magistrate threatened to clear it. Brady afterward somewhat recovered his composure and endeavored to smile. Independent witnesses corroborated having seen Kavanagh previous to the Phenix Park murders at the public houses ho im utioned iu his evidence as having visited liefore he drove to the park. Doyle, Patrick Deianey aud Kitz-Harris said they had no questions to ask Kax anairb. Tim Kelly's counsel endeu vi .risl to sbakr Ka anagh's evidence by asking him questi me concerning' the interviews at the castle and the money promised to h m, but he did not appar ently produce much impression.
