EVICTIONS IN IRELAND RESUMED.
DUBLIN, Sept. 20 - There is renewed excitement everywhere in Dublin in
consequence of the resumption of the eviction of tenants who are in arrears for
rent. In County Clare, the Sheriff proceeded yesterday with a large force of
police to Coolready to dispossess delinquent tenants, but instead of the
resistance expected the first tenant was ready to pay his back rent. At the next
house the Sheriff found the same condition of affairs. The result of the raid
was that the rents were paid and none of the tenants were evicted. Many of the
tenants on the estate of Lord Ely, in County Fermanagh and County Wexford, and
on the estates of Lord Templemore in County Wexford, are in arrears and
preparations are being made for evictions. None of the tenants on these estates
have been dispossessed in four years and trouble is anticipated when the writs

Moonlighters Commit Another Outrage
Another outrage by moonlighters is reported from Tullah, a small town in
County Clare. Saturday night a band of moonlighters, who had a grudge against a
man employed as a servant by the family of Judge Browne, visited the residence
of the Brownes, which is situated a short distance from the town. One of the
band, who was in disguise, entered the house and demanded to know the
whereabouts of the man servant. The man was absent and the only occupants of the
house were the daughters of the dead magistrate. They informed the moonlighter
that the man he was looking for was not in the house. This information seemed to
enrage the moonlighter, who drew a revolver and fired upon one of the girls.
Fortunately his aim was bad and the bullet went wide of its mark. He then amused
himself by firing at random about the room until his weapon was empty, when he
withdrew and joined the gang awaiting him on the outside. When they learned that
the man they wanted was not in the house the moonlighters withdrew without
making any further trouble.
EXCITING FIGHT AT KILRUSH.
KILRUSH, Jan. 2 - Serious disturbances occurred here today between
Parnellites and anti-Parnellites, and exciting fights occurred between the two
factions lasting over three hours. The police were powerless for a time and it
looked as if the military would have to be called upon. The police, however,
charged the crowds and by clubbing a large number and making many arrests,
succeeding in restoring order, not, however, until great damage had been done to
several houses belonging to members of both factions. The exact amount of the
loss to property is not estimated, but will be quite heavy. No lives were lost,
but many were seriously injured. A large number of arrests were made today and
more will probably follow.
