§ MR. W. JOHNSTON
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that on Friday, the 8th instant, the Dungannon Lodge of Good Templars were attacked near Edendork Chapel, on their way home from Coalisland, County Tyrone, and the occupants of a brake seriously injured from stones thrown; and whether any of the assailants have been made amenable to justice?
MR. J. MORLEY
It is a fact that an attack was made on a brake containing members of the Society referred to at Edendork on the night of the 8th instant. Stones were thrown at the occupants of the brake, and a girl was struck on the head, though the wound is not, I am glad to say, dangerous. No other person was injured. None of the persons on the brake can identify their assailants, but the police are pursuing inquiries in the matter, and will make every effort to trace the guilty parties.
