§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the final notice for eviction has been served upon a certain number of the De Freyne tenants; and if he can take any steps to 536 arrange a settlement on the terms suggested by more than one of the Roman Catholic clergy, before a step is j taken which, whilst working great hardship, will also embitter feeling.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Evictions are impending on the estate of Lord De Freyne. It is not in my power to intervene in the manner suggested in the question. Even if it were, I could not anticipate that my offices would succeed if those of the Clergy should most unfortunately fail.
