British statistics relating to the taxa
tion of Ireland for the years 1897-98
show that the country has been over
taxed during that period to the extent of
fourteen millions of dollars. Amount

butious should be but little over twenty

The Ulster crack cyclist, George Rob
ertson, did an extraordinary performance
on Tuesday. Starting from the six-mile
stone on the Antrim road, he journeyed
to the fifty-sixth and back, thus doing
100 miles. Although indifferently paced,
he completed the distance in fourteen
minutes and odd seconds inside the rec
ord. The watch was held by Mr. Shini
mlns, one of the official time-keepers of
the Irish Cycle Association.
During the past ten or twelve days
n extraordinary series of fires which,
from their number and surroundings,
give color to the belief that some at all
events arc the work of incendiaries, have
occurred in the Ardee district of County
Louth. In each case stacks of hay,
straw and corn have been destroyed, and
in one case a threshing mill, which was
in the haggard of the owner of the corn
in readiness to thresh the next day.
Wednesday night stacks of hay, etc.,
Adjacent to the com stores of Mr. 3.
Keelan, in the town of Ardte, were to
tally destroyed. Three nights previous
some forty tons of hay and a quantity of
corn, stored, in the farmyard of Mr. P.
Mcuee, i. i'., in uisn street, were

mediate attendance.
The revision of the Cork Parliamen
tary and Municipal Register concluded
before Mr. J. R. Stritch, Q. C, and Mr.

ducted with efficiency and expedition
At the close of the proceedings a cordial
vote of thanks was passed to the Revis
ing Barristers on the motion of Mr. J.
O'Leary, the agent of the Independent
party.
Francis Reynolds, aged thirty-eight,
a river pilot, sustained injuries on Tnes
day night near Limerick by falling from
an outside car on which he had been driv
ing with some friends. He succumbed
in a few minutes afterwards. The de
ceased was returning from Adare, when
the horse shied at a steam roller, throw
ing the deceased and his wife, who was
seated beside him, on the road. He
alighted on the back of his head and
was rendered unconscieus.
At the weekly meeting of the Belfast
Board of Guardians held on Tuesday a
communication was read from the Irish
Workhouse Association, informing the
guardians of the Committee of Meath's
proposal to give $10,000 toward establish
ing a Catholic and Protestant home for
workhouse girls, the object of which is
to give to such girls between the age of
twelve and sixteen such a training as
would fit them for domestic service. The
master was instructed to ascertain how
many girls of the age specified were in
the workhouse at present.
Record smashing goes on apace in the
Irish cycling world. One of the latest
and most meritorious performances stands
to the credit of the National Cycle ped
aller, who improved upon the fifty miles
road record, which stood in the name of
of n fellow-clubman, W. L. Martin, at
two hours, twenty-five minutes, sixteen
seconds. Meade was ably paced by three
triplets on his errand, and being fortunate
in avoiding punctures succeeded in cut
ting in under the existing record by
seven minutes, forty-one seconds. His
official time was two hours, seventeen
minutes, thirty-five seconds.
Mr. Joseph Hayburn presided at last
meeting of the William Orr Club, Lur
gan, held at the club rooms of Brown
street, when the following resolution was
unanimously adopted: "That we, the
members of the club, composed of dif
ferent sections of Irishmen, call upon our
representatives in Parliament to unite
and show our enemies in Westminster
that we are determined in having what
Wolfe Tone and the United Irishmen
fought ana died for one hundred years
ago; and that we will never desist until
we make Ireland what they shed their
blood for, a nation among the nations of
the earth." Mr. Heybum gave a short
lecture on the life and death of William
Orr.
At the monthly meeting of the Sligo
Harbor Commissioners an important let
ter was received from from Mr. Fenton
Crown Solicitor, Sligo, relative to the
proceedings which have been going on
for some time past regarding the rating
of Sligo harbor. The case was first
heard before the County Court Judge,
O'Connor Morris, who decided in favor
of the Harbor Commissioners, and this
decision was upheld hi the Court of Ap
peals. The letter was as follows:
nave oeen directly ana unoiticiauy in
formed that the Government intend to
accept the principles developed in your
appeal and decided in our favor by the
Court of Appeals as final, and that they
do not contemplate any further legtsla
tion to disturb the present and long
established state of the law,"
It was gratifying to find that the annual
street collections on behalf of the city
hospitals of Cork, made on Saturday last
showed an increase when compared with
the previous year. Collections were also
made by the principal firms in the city
the total amounts of which have not yet
been announced, but they are considers
me. Altogether a substantial sum was
realized in excess of last year, and this
without any unnecessary fuss or display.
The ladies' committee had been criticized
for the apathy U had shown in recent
years, and the movement was not prop
erly supported by the authorities of the
hospitals that the collections were pro
moted to serve. The plain speakincr had
very good effect, and from all sides
came nearly co-operation, with the re
sult that various reforms were instituted
and the movement that seemed on the
road to failure was turned back to the
ways of success.
Mr. William Redmond, M. P., has
addressed the following letter to the
Right Hon. Gerald Balfour, Chief Secre
tary for Ireland: "I desire to ask you to
get the Lord Lieutenant to see if it would
not be possible to recommend the release
of the prisoners from Clare who are at
present in Mountjoy prison. These men
Hirst, Howard, James Cooney, Dennis
Cooney, John Brody and Patrick Hartigan
have no been incarcerated for nearly
nine years. Their conduct in prison has
been good, and, as the County Clare is in
a very peaceable condition, it is reason
able to expect that the Lord Lieutenant
may now, after nine years, order the re
lease of these nieu. Their liberation
would be hailed with satisfaction all
through the country and would greatly
tend to preserve the present 'peaceabl
condition of affairs. Martin Molouy who
is, and who has for some time been, an
invalid in Maryboro's prison, might
surely also be released.

Brother John Gannon is one of the

that Brother Taylor, the worthy President

iant Joe says nothing, but looks very

an important meeting Tuesday, Novem

of other pressing business, will no doubt
be forced to resign. ,
