These Italian rifles (writes Mr R. Montague Smith in "The Daily Mail" of Decern-^ ber 6), of which about 25,000 were purchased for Ulster, --are not so pre cise as the modern service weapon, being long in the barrel, wim L... usually large bore and a high trajec tory. Nevertheless they are very deadly weapons, shooting accurately at a distance of 1500 yards. Each rifie has a clip holding five cartridges. These rifles were bought in Ham burg, and shipped from there to Dun dee, Leith, Newcastle, and West Hartlepool. At one or other of those ports they were transhipped to a boat bound for Belfast, often consigned as hardware, electrical equipment, or even pianos. SECRECY OBSERVED. These operations were c...

IN A LONDON WORKHOUSE j ; ! I CRUELTY AND NEGLECT | (By Chris; Massie in the "Daily Mail."} " I do not want anyone to think that my present abode is a place of uni form harshness and cruelty. On the other hand—setting aside the casual ward, which is one of the worst in the metropolitan area — my present abode has a particularly good name for leniency and fair treatment. My contention from the general is this, that cases of cruelty and neglect do happen, and always will happen in institutions of this kind while in mates have no audible voice and no impartial judgment on their griev ances. ... X shall take for the special purposes of my article a circumstance which happened some time ago.
