§ MR. REDDY (King's County, Birr)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that in a case concluded in the Chancery Division, Dublin, on the 18th inst., at the suit of Miss Rose Sweeney, manual instructress of the National School, Carntall, county Tyrone, who sought an injunction and damages against Mr. William Coote, grand master of the local Orange lodge for conspiring to procure her dismissal from her position in the school, Mr. Justice Barton gave judgment in favour of the plaintiff, with costs; and whether, under the circumstances, he will see that Mr. Coote's action is brought under the notice of the Lord Chancellor with a view to his removal from the commission of the peace.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
The judgment in this case was only delivered a few days ago, and there has been no time yet to fully consider it or ascertain whether there may be an appeal.
§ MR. DILLON
Is this the same gentleman who was charged with a similar offence in relation to the same school some months ago, and who paid heavy damages in older to avoid a public trial?
§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)
In the event of an appeal, will care be taken that the Crown Solicitor for county Tyrone and the Solicitor-General for Ireland do not appear for a man who has been found guilty by a competent Court 1128 of an attempt to intimidate a peasant Catholic girl?
