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 Athlone.
   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 still live.

Compensation Awarded.
   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.).

West Cork Incident.
Bandon, Monday.—An account reached here of an incident between police and Sinn Feiners at Kilbrittain on Sunday. About 2 o'clock a meeting of the members of the local Sinn Fein Club was being held at the usual meeting place, in the residence of Mr. Jeremiah Ahern, Kilbrittain. Five policemen entered and ordered the meeting to disperse. The request was refused, and the police went back to the barrack and returned with their carbines. In the meantime the meeting had dispersed, some members leaving by the back and 8 or 10 by the front. Those who came to the front sang the “Soldier's Song,” and the police fired two shots in the air. The parties then went away, and nothing further occurred.
An Irish Judge for Clerkenwell
The transfer of his Honor Judge Scully to Clerkenwell brings to the London County Court Bench a member of a celebrated Irish family, the Scullys of Tipperary. They held high ecclesiastical office in Ireland before the conquest of the country by Henry II. The "Star" diarist recalls that one of them in the 15th century is mentiined [sic] Irish poetry as "O'Scully of Sweet Stories." Denys Scully, who died in 1830, was one of the leaders of the Catholic Emancipation agitation, and the father of Vincent Scully, Q.C., who sat in the House of Commons for Cork for many years. The Q.C.' son, the second Vincent Scully, liberally assisted the Parnellite war chest from the wealth he derived from his 5,500 acres in Tipperary, and his large property in Kansas.

Globe in Barrow Dock on July 13th. Mr. Merriman, K.C., for the prosecution, said prisoner was one of nine firemen on the vessel, on which deceased was cook.

When arrested prisoner said he was struck with a poker by deceased and retaliated. The judge commented on the fact that the police had not discovered the knife, a vital piece of evidence, but it was explained that before the police arrived the galley had been washed and tidied up. The jury returned a verdict of manslaughter under great provocation, and a sentence of seven months' hard labour was passed.

The Cork Examiner, 28 October 1919
At Leicester Assizes yesterday, Samuel Mitchell, 55, tailor, pleaded guilty to causing an explosion of gunpowder with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to two police constables. The officers were taking Mitchell into the police station on commitment when a bomb exploded in his pocket, prisoner having fired a loaded pistol into it. A loaded revolver was found in another pocket. Neither officers nor accused were hurt, but another man received slight injury. The defence was that Mitchell had a grievance against the authorities which preyed on his mind. The bomb was not a dangerous one. Mr. Justice Green sentenced Mitchell to eighteen months' imprisonment.
Death Sentence Passed.
An armless man named William Lamb, between 50 and 60, was sentenced to death in Edinburgh yesterday for the murder of Agnes Stirling, with whom he lived. The woman's body showed numerous injuries, apparently inflicted with a booted foot. Prisoner, who was recommended to mercy by the jury, listened to the sentence unmoved.
