The following morning (Saturday), Captain Kirwan attended to his duty, as Inspector of Canals, after which he proceeded to the house of Mr. He struck a match, puffed out a ring of smoke, and dialed Beria's number. "What a pity," Beria said. "All of them have already confessed." This system of alien rule was designed with demoniac and serpent cunning to destroy not only the nation, but the instincts, the education, the heroic, noble, manly qualities that naturally belong to the Irish Celt, and substi- tute in their place meanness, suspicion, cowardice, avarice, crouching slavery, and whining beggary.

Peter and the Covey were arguing away when Nora came home and quieted them, declaring that there was small hope of ever making them respectable. But, when we go to verify the reason for this great confidence in Ireland's ex-coercer, by examining the Bill upon which is built up both the faith of a section of the Irish people and the hostility of British Tories and Unionists; when the searcher after truth comes to examine this measure which with the most monstrous effrontery has been foisted on mankind as a measure to confer Home Rule — i. e., self government — upon Ireland, he finds by the most cursory glance that there is nothing mystified, compli- cated, or difficult to comprehend.
