in reprisal for a Sinn Keiiv attack Saturday night, but the
Irish office in London denied this. The partial destruetionof
Cork, entailing 915,000.000 damage, was a sovere blow to
the republican cause- Cork was, thu hotbed of Sinn Foinism.
All south Ireland is crammed with Hritish troops,' Measures
are being taken to tighten and to possibly extend martial law.
All the motor cars were commandeered at tucenstown by
British troops, which was interpreted an a preliminary movo
to more drastic military activity. 1
Tho severity with which the British troops are putting
down sniping and ambuscade attacks was revealed from
Cloync, County Cork, where bombs wore thrown from two
houses at a military patrol. Tho bombers were attacked;
one man killed, two others wounded and two mado prisoners.
Then tho houses wore burned to tho ground.
