§ MR. HARRINGTON
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is the fact that the ratepayers of the borough of Tralee have been taxed for the compensation awarded in the case of outrages which had been committed seven miles from the town; and, whether several magistrates and others who were not residents of the borough gave evidence in favour of its exemption; and, if so, would he state the grounds on which it was included in the area taxed?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, from inquiries made by the County Inspector, I 25 think this Question must refer to the compensation in the case of the murder of Mr. Herbert. In that case, as in all others, the district taxed was reconsidered by the investigator after careful consideration of the evidence. In that case the murder arose from a conspiracy spread all over the whole barony in which Tralee is situated. If the Question refers to this particular murder, that is my answer; but I shall be glad to inquire if it refers to any other case.
