Claimants Turning Up From All Parts of the World.
| Interest in the discovery of the heirs to the Quinn
millions, and the new claims advanced since the recent publication of the
fortune available for distribution, is indicated by the inquiries daily reaching
| Claimants of relationship to the deceased (Thomas Quinn)
came from all parts, including England, Scotland, and notable Glasgow.
| A lady from Co. Cork, who claims near relationship denies
that Quinn died childless. She alleges he had four children, two girls and two
boys. When returning from India, after leaving the army, to settle in Clare, the
eldest boy, Thomas Quinn, she says, died on board ship. The surviving son,
William Quinn, she asserts is alive in Scotland. Another lady, who wants her
replies sent care of the Agent-General for Victoria, Australia House, London,
believes she has valuable information.
| So far, Mr. Patrick Quinn, Athlone, is believed to be the
nearest relative of the soldier, whose estate is said to be worth four millions.
He has left to search for early parish records at Kilmihill, Co. Clare, where
both Thomas Quinn and himself spent their early lives, and where many relatives
|ATTACK ON CONSTABLE.
| At Mallow Quarter Sessions, before the Recorder of Cork,
Constable O'Brien, the Commons road Station, applied for £1,000 compensation
for injuries sustained by him while cycling along the public road to Scarteen
(Newmarket), in the discharge of his duty as a peace officer on St. Patrick's
Night, 1918. The applicant's case was that he was set upon by a party of unknown
men, who belaboured him with sticks, knocked him down, and took his rifle from
him. He received two severe wounds on the head which extended to the bone ; his
arm was badly hurt, and his body severely bruised from kicks. He was in a
position of great danger until another constable who was on duty with him came
to his rescue. His assailants made off. Owing to the effects of the wounds he
was obliged to undergo hospital treatment for several weeks, and had only
recently returned to light duty. He still suffered from the effects of the
injuries. Medical evidence in support of the applicant's case was given by Dr.
Verling, Newmarket ; Dr. Harvey, Kanturk ; Dr. J. T. O'Connor, Cork, and Dr.
Ashley Cummins, Cork, each of whom stated that he was still suffering from the
effects of the attack, and would be likely to be always subject to headaches and
eye trouble as the result of the injuries received.
| For the County Council, Dr. P. T. O'Sullivan gave it as
his opinion that though the constable had received a severe beating he was now
quite recovered from the effects of his injuries, and that as no serious
developments have taken place in his condition at the end of twelve months after
the occurrence it could be safely assumed that the applicant was now quite fit
for police duty without any danger of ill-effects.
| The Recorder awarded £400 compensation, to be levied off
the Rural District of Kanturk, and in doing so said the constable had been the
victim of a cowardly attack, in the course of which he had received injuries
which caused him months of pain, the marks of which were still visible on his
head. He desired to say that the young constable behaved with great pluck on
that occasion, and resisted the onslaught made on him until he was rendered
unconscious by a blow which felled him to the ground.
| For the applicant, Mr. Anthony Carroll, Crown Solicitor ;
for the Co. Council, Mr. Daly (instructed by Mr. Exham, solr. ; for the Kanturk
Rural Council, Mr. Kelly (instructed by Mr. John Guiney, solr.).
