     News has reached Nenagh that Rev. Wm. Gallagher, C.F., son of Mr Jos. Gallagher, Queen street, Nenagh, attached to a battalion of the King's Liverpool Regiment, has been gassed in action in France. Letters which his parents have received from brother chaplains state that his eyes have been mainly affected by the gas, but his sight will not be permanently injured. Father Gallagher, who was only ordained last year, has been at the front since January and had many exciting experiences, on one occasion the roof of his billet being blown in by a shell.

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.


     ACCIDENT AT DALKEY- A man named William Coppinger, of Redmond's mill, Dublin, fell at the slope near the railway at Vice-hill, Dalkey, yesterday afternoon, sustaining injuries to the head. He was conveyed to St. Michael's Hospital, where he was detained a patient.

     RIOT CHARGES- Before Mr. Justice Pim, on Saturday, Christopher Bulger was acquitted on a charge of having on June 10 engaged in riotous proceedings at Aungier street and Redmond's hill, and with window smashing. Mr. Dudley White, K.C., and Dr. Walsh, K.C. (instructed by Chief Crown Solicitor) prosecuted, and Mr. Joseph O'Connor (instructed by Mr. Scott) defended. Sentence was deferred in the case of Bridget Byrne and Christopher Bradshaw, found guilty of riot and assault at Boyne street on June 13. Mary Anne McGovern was acquitted and a nolie prosequi was entered in the case of James Dalton.

     NO UNNECESSARY CRUELTY- At Bray Patrick Fleming, Ballybrack, was summoned by John Anderson, Inspector S.P.C.A. for causing sheep unnecessary suffering. The complainant stated that defendant was driving a horse and cart in which were tied four sheep. The animals were breathing heavily, and seemed in pain. Witness insisted upon the animals being liberated. Fleming's employer denied that any unnecessary suffering was caused. The magistrates were satisfied that there was no unnecessary cruelty, and dismissed the case.

     SENTENCES AT CITY COMMISSION- Mr. Justice Pim, at the City Commissions, sentenced John A. Patterson to four months' imprisonment for uttering documents purporting to be the wills of the late Jas. Watters, Michael Cannon and Mary Breen were released on a rule of bail. For bigamy and larceny of a cycle, James Brown was sentenced to six months and two months, to run concurrently. Bridget Cox, for a separation allowance fraud, was allowed out on her own recognisances; Patrick Ahern, for the larceny of sheets, was sentenced to two months' hard labour. Michael Keane, convicted of stealing tarpaulin, and John O'Reilly, carrier, of the larceny of a quantity of clothing, each received one month's imprisonment. In the case of Mrs. Camphor, convicted of the conversion of goods, she was allowed out conditionally on restitution being made.

     ROW AMONGST SEAMEN- A seaman named Russell, has arrested and detained by police in connection with alleged shooting with revolver at another seaman at Alexandra Basin, Dublin. A row occurred between the parties on board ship lying in the Basin, and it is alleged that in the course of the quarrel Russell drew a revolver and fired at the other man, the bullet grazing his neck, but not injuring him. A complaint was made by the latter to the police, and a deposition made by him accusing Russell of having fired the shot, and the latter was taken into custody. It is alleged that after the firing revolver was thrown into the water.

     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
Murder Charge

     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.


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.

Labourer's Death on the Roadside

     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 accused.

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 afterwards.
     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 of them.

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 him."
     Accused was remanded in custody until Saturday next at Garvagh.

The Inquest.

     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.

     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 Americans is to assume that Ireland's trouble is economic and not political.

     Great activity was shown in the Kilkenny election yesterday. Seven meetings were held in support of the rival candidates. Amongst the speakers on behalf of the Nationalist's candidate's claims were Mr. J.P. Hayden, M.P. and Mr. J.T. Donovan, M.P.

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."

MUNICIPAL AUTHORITIES.- A sub-committee has been appointed by the Limerick Corporation to make the necessary arrangements in connection with the forthcoming visit to Limerick of delegates from the Association of Municipal
Authorities of Ireland. This conference will be held in the Town Hall on September 5-6, when papers on various subjects relating to Municipal life, problems, and undertakings will be read. The Mayor will preside.

SWEETHEARTS QUARREL.- At Newcastle West, Mr. H.R. Jones, R.M., took depositions in the case of Patrick M'Mahon, a young farm labourer, charged with the attempted murder of Kate Ahern, a servant in the employment of Mr. Wm. Mullane, Ballygeale, by cutting the young woman's throat with a razor. The prisoner and Aherne were in service at a farm in the Newcastle West district, kept company, and were on terms of intimacy.

HOUSING ACCOMMODATION IN CORK.- Mr. Maurice Healy asked the Chief Secretary in the House of Commons whether he would extend the scope of the inquiry to be made by Mr. Cowan, of the L.G.B., as to housing in Dublin to include
housing conditions in Cork. Mr. Duke said Mr. Cowan should complete his inquiries in Dublin before he could understand a similar inquiry in Cork. The case of Cork was not so urgent as that of Dublin. Under the new Cork Improvement Act, a largely increased housing accommodation would be provided independently of the Corporation. It would probably be thought advisable to
await the completion of the plans of these new buildings before considering
the question of further accommodation the Corporation should provide.
