of his billet being blown in by a shell.
DEATH SENTENCE COMMUTED
Life Sentence for Prisoner in Missing Body Case
The Lords Justices in Ireland have
granted a reprieve to Patrick M'Nicholl, the young Co. Derry farmer who was
sentenced to death for the murder of his illegitimate child, Elizabeth
M'Nicholl, daughter of Tilly Burke, a domestic servant, formerly employed by
M'Nicholl. The death sentence has been commuted to penal servitude for life.
The case will become an important precedent, by reason
of the decision of Mr. Justice Gibson to allow it to go to a jury although the
body of the murdered baby had not been discovered. The jury convicted, and
accused's appeal to the Court of Crown Cases Reserved was dismissed.
CITY AND DISTRICT
ACCIDENT AT DALKEY- A man named William

the bullet grazing his neck, but not injuring him. A complaint was made by the

fired the shot, and the latter was taken into custody. It is alleged that after

BOATING ACCIDENTS AT KINGSTOWN- Two
boating accidents occurred yesterday at Kingstown. In the first instance
Elizabeth Burchette, 14 Patrick street, Kingstown; Alice Darcy, Desmond avenue,
Kingstown, and Nellie Roche, 29 Sandycove avenue, West, were getting into a boat
at the Little Harbour, between 4 and 5 p.m. when the boat was upset and all
three were thrown into the water. Mr. Farrell, the owner of the boat, with the
assistance of Privates Young and Barry, succeeded in rescuing them. Miss
Burchette was conveyed to St. Michael's Hospital, where she was treated by Dr.
O'Connor and detained. The second accident occurred when two men named John
Crowe, 136 Lower George's street, Kingstown, and Charles Reid, Lower George's
street, who were fishing off the Harbour, were run into by a steam boat and were
thrown into the water. Both men, who were able to swim, were rescued by the
steamer and conveyed to Kingstown.
MISSING TOBACCO- In the Southern Court,
Henry Hughes, 15 Field street, Mill Bank, Holyhead, a fireman on the ss.
Snowden, of the L. nad N.W.R. Co., was charged with having stolen from the hold
of the ss. Snowden two wooden cases containing about 50lbs of walnut plug
tobacco, value about £26, and with having 2 oz. of tobacco, supposed to be
portion of the stolen property, illegally in his possession. Mr. Gerald Byrne
(of Messrs. Gerald Byrne & Co.) appeared for the prosecution and Mr. J.A.
Scott for the defendant. On July 29 twenty cases of tobacco were placed on board
the Snowden at Holyhead, and subsequently, after the vessel's arrival in Dublin,
two cases were found to be missing. When the Snowden arrived back in Holyhead
the members of the crew were searched and a piece of tobacco stamped
"Walnut" was found in defendant's possession. Subsequently, after the
vessel had again come to Dublin, Inspector Clarke accompanied the defendant to
the shop in Talbot street where he said he bought it. The assistant stated that
they had not stocked "Walnut" for the six months that she had been
there. The defendant had been seven years in the employment of the company, and
his record hitherto had been good.
Warrant for Policeman's Arrest on
On Friday the Ballybunion shooting
affair entered on a new phase, when Mr. Charles Power, B.L. (instructed by Mr.
John Moran, solicitor, Listowell), appeared before Mr. John Boland, J.P., a
local magistrate, and applied for a warrant for the arrest of Constable Lyons
for the wilful murder of Daniel Scanlan. The application was grounded on the
sworn information of Miss May Mason, who was the principal witness at the recent
inquest, which returned a verdict of wilful murder against the constable. Mr.
Boland said that on the face of the information he had no alternative but to
accede to the application. The warrant was subsequently handed by the Clerk of
Petty Sessions to the District-Inspector for execution.
SUICIDE IN JAIL
Suspected Murderer's End in Waterford
An inquest was held on Saturday on the
body of Patrick Brannigan (alias Joseph Gleeson) who committed suicide in
Waterford Jail on Thursday evening. He had been returned for trial at the
Wexford Winter Assizes on the charge of attempting to murder a young woman near
Gorey, and he was also "wanted" by the Kildare police on suspicion of
being concerned in the D??en (Co. Kildare) murder last April.
Prison Warder Ring stated that he last saw the deceased
alive at 6:45 p.m. in his cell, walking up and down. He again went to his cell
at 7.40 with Warder Edwards. On looking through the spy-hole of the door and not
seeing the prisoner, he opened the door and found him standing on a stool,
suspended from the ventilator, with his necktie around his neck, together with a
handkerchief and a strip of a towel attached to it. Brannigan was immediately
taken down and laid on the floor, but was apparently dead.
Dr. Morris, medical officer to the prison, stated he
came to the conclusion that Brannigan was of unsound mind, and ordered him to be
placed under observation. Death was due to strangulation.
The jury returned a verdict that the deceased committed
suicide whilst temporarily insane, and attached no blame to anyone.
DERRY MURDER CHARGE
Labourer's Death on the Roadside
ALLEGATION AGAINST SOLDIER
A sensation was caused in the Aghadowey
district of South Derry on Friday evening by the tragic death of a labourer
named William Davison, aged about 65 years, residing at Moneycarrie, and the
subsequent arrest on a charge of having murdered the old man, of Archd.
M'Quilken, a sapper in the Royal Engineers, belonging to the same townland and
who is at present on leave from France.
The prisoner, a slightly-built young sapper of the
Royal Engineers, was conveyed by motor on Saturday morning to Coleraine, where
he was charged before Mr. W.Q. Murphy, R.M., with the murder of William Davison,
at Moneycarrie, on Friday.
Mr. Wm. O'Kane, solicitor, Garvagh, represented the
The Scene Described in Evidence.
Mrs. Mary Davison, a
daughter-in-law of the deceased, stated that on Friday evening she accompanied
her father-in-law in a donkey cart to Garvagh, about three miles distant. They
left for home again about 7.40. Witness drove the donkey as far as Inchaleen,
and deceased then took over the reins. When nearing home they met the accused
and two women and two children. Accused came forward and lifting her
father-in-law out of the cart, threw him down on the road and kicked him half a
dozen times about the head and shoulders. Blood flowed from the deceased, who,
while on the ground, tried to defend himself by putting his arms round the
prisoner's feet. One of the women, whom witness thought to be the prisoner's
wife, shouted, "Archie! Archie! that will do." Deceased turned partly
on his side. Accused remarked to the deceased, "That will put you from
insulting my wife," and then walked away with the women and children.
Witness went over to the deceased, but he was unable to speak to her. She tried
to lift him to a sitting position but he fell back again, and she then partly
stretched him on his right side on the road. He did not recover consciousness
Cross examined by Mr.O'Kane, witness said they met the
women first, and then the accused. No remarks or gestures took place between any
After the Assault.
William Thomas Workman, farmer,
Moneycarrie, deposed that while driving home from Mullinabrone on Friday evening
he met Mrs. Davison. In consequence of what she told him he went forward to the
deceased who was lying on the road, and partly on his right side. At that time
he appeared to be dead. Witness tried but unsuccessfully to get him into a
sitting position. Blood was oozing from his nose. Witness unfastened his shirt
collar and sleeves, and Mrs. Davison brought some water with which he bathed the
deceased temples. He then lifted the deceased and placed him in a sitting
position on the ditch at the side of the road.
Constable Thos. Browne Garvagh, who was called to the
scene, deposed to finding the deceased in an unconscious condition. In
consequence of what he heard witness went round to make inquiries. After going
about 2 1/2 miles he observed a soldier, accompanied by a girl and two children
coming from a house in the fields. Witness then arrested him on the charge of
having attempted to murder William Davison at Moneycarrie on that day. The
accused replied, "I struck him, but I didn't intend to kill him. I struck
Accused was remanded in custody until Saturday next at
Dr. H.S. Morrison, Coroner for the
district, held an inquest at Moneycarrie National School on Saturday afternoon.
Mrs. Mary Davisin gave similar evidence to that given
at the magisterial inquiry.
Dr. S.J. Bolton, Dispensary Medical Officer, examined,
said that in conjunction with Dr. A.M. Adams he had held a post mortem
examination on deceased. He thought cause of death was hemorrhage and shock due
to injuries received.
Answering Mr. O'Kane, he said he thought the only
wounds caused by kicks were the one behind the right ear and the one on the
right temple. The heart was not strong.
Dr. A.M. Adams corroborated.
The jury found that Wm. Davison died from hemorrhage on
the brain and shock due to wounds caused by Archd. M'Quilken.

NEWS AT A GLANCE
Mr. Lloyd George, addressing a
big gathering in Queen's Hall, London, on the third anniversary of Britain's
entry into the war, said "No one among our Allies or our enemies had any
idea how near to the summit of our hopes we were."
In an interview with a New York
journalist, Most Rev. Dr. Kelly, Bishop of Ross, said a fundamental mistake of

candidates. Amongst the speakers on behalf of the Nationalist's candidate's

SPIRIT OF AMERICA
An Irish Priest's Enthusiasm for the War
Rev. Patrick Dolan, S.J., Campion
College, Wisconsin, U.S.A. in a letter to a relative in Roscommon says:-
"The Allies will get 350 million bushels of our
wheat within the next half year; the corn is waving in unnumbered acres now, and
will be more than enough to feed ourselves; our gold we'll give, all you need of
it; and last, and best, we'll give an army of five million to help you drive the
last vestige of militarism from Europe, and make it a free as our own free land.
"Between us and Canada is a boundary line
three-nearly four thousand miles long, and there isn't a gun, or a sign of a gun
between us- that's Democracy- that's freedom, people so free that they don't
know how to mistrust a neighbour- or arm against him. Well, we're going to help
you to beat down the barrier of militarism which is keeping nations and peoples
apart, keeping them in mutual distrust, and we'll stay by you till you have
border-lines as safe as the one between us and our neighbours and fellow
democrats of Canada."
