London, Oct. 87. Tbe Cork contest is
becoming exciting. On Sunday Canon
O'Mahoney, while be waa pelting mad at
O'Connor, flavored the Inteirals between
mad by daring Redmond and his friends
to venture to Black-Rock. Last night
they went to accept the challenge. Today
there will be a grand meeting in behalf of
Flavin, the McCarthy ite candidate.
Dillon and O'Brien will arrive about mid
day, and will be protected by a formidable
escort of the Gaelic society, equipped with
the necessary weapons. The Parnellites
talk of an attack on the procession, and
an extra force of police has been ordered
"Tread on the Tail of Me Coat."
Redmond and John O'Connor, M. P.,
with bands and a crowd of partisans,
went to Black Rock in answer to Canon
O'Mahoney's challenge. They marched
boldly into the parish. The antl-Parnell-ites
were waking for them with trailing
coats and shillalAhs. The meeting of the
two parties was attended by great excite
ment. The anti- Parnellites showered
ticks and stones and mud on their oppo
nents. The Parnellites, who were armed
with stont blackthorns, remained Arm
and steady under the volley of mud, and,
after the first attack, charged and routed
their opponents. Then the victors held
their meeting on the field, while their en
emies sknlked away with bruised and
bloody heads. The meeting was very en
thusiastic, and after it the Parnellites re
turned jubilant to Cork.
Threaten to glap Healy'e Face. .
John E. Redmond, annoyed at certain
statements made by Ilealy, says that if
the latter continues to abuse him he will
publicly slap his face in the streets of this
city, even if he gets six months' impris
onment for so doing. John O'Connor
complains that he has been followed when
calling at the residences or places of busi
ness of voters while campaigning for .the
Farnellite candidate for Cork city, John
E. Redmond, by Canon O'Mahony and
other priests, who openly denounced him
as being "one of Kiuy O' Shea's men," and
who told the people to hunt him from
The Hand Grenade In the Fight.
Some unknown person threw a grenade
last night into a window of the editorial
rooms of the Dublin National Press, the
McCarthyite paper. A tremendous ex
plosion followed, not a whole window
being left in the building, and the furni
ture ia the editorial rooms was badly
mashed. There is a complete mystery
as to the guilty party.

evidence of the horrible agony endured.

entirely bitten off, and the hands torn
with the teeth until they scarcely resem
