These sessions were continued yesterday before Daniel Ryan Kane, Q. C., at half-past ten o'clock. . . . Michael John Ahern was objected to by Mr. Wynne, on the ground that the premises out of which he claimed to vote had been sold by him, and that Mr. Norreys had been summoned to prove that other premises of Ahern's had been objected for non-payment of rent, and that he had leased other premises to Mr. William Moore Johnson, and out of which the latter is now entitled to vote, and that Mr. Anthony O'Connor was aware that the last remnant of the Ahern property in Mallow, and out of which he now claimed, was parted with.

Mr. Edward O'Connor said that it was really too bad that when witnesses were summoned they did not attend, and that the chairman should force them to do so. John Ahern proved service of a summons on Mr. Norreys. Mr. Norreys did not attend, and Mr. Ahern was retained.
