THE MACROOM MAS&ACRE / CORK, Dec. 1.-DeUils Of the tragic storaof Sunday evening's massacre near TCIlmichael, In which 15 awslllary police recruits wer� shot td death, may never come to li^ht. TJle oinly -available source of ittitormation Is the 'Bole surviving member of the party, who was severely wounded and; Is believed to be dying iu the mlUtaijr Jips-pitai here. ^ ? ' A tfipagre story of the event, gasped ottt by the wounded mank has hoea told officials sitting by his bedrtdd.' He has decIaredHbat the party, of recruits met an armed band marijbitig in the road, the men wearing khaki suits and "tin hats." The recruits mistook them in the fading light for soldiers and thus fell into an ambush. V Statements from other quarters would seem to Indicate that the annihilation of the party of recruits can be accounted for only on the theory that the road was mined or a trench had been dug So far as is known, there were no casualties on tho side of the assailants. Jt appears that the recruits left the village of Macroom early on Sunday ! to conduct raids and searches in the CDuntrybide stretching toward Dun-man. The entire day was occupied I with this work and it was late in thd evening when the party started on its return journey. One account of the incident states that at. a secluded spot, a deep trench had been cut across the road and into it the leading lorry plunged. The second lorry which was travelling fast ran into the wrecked car, It is said, and the occupants ot both became easy victims ot the men who planned the attack. Police officials at Macroom were ignorant of the tragedy until Monday when a party was sent-to scour the country for the missing men. POLICE GAINING THE UPPER-HANO Police authorities here still claim to be gaining tho upperhand in the tight against extremlscs,. They assert the men responsible foV ambuscades and assassinations feel they are being driven into a corner. They are receiving no protection from the people and move about the countryside in bands ,ot from loo to 300, forcing farmers, it Ib declared, to provide them with food. "Kvery man of them is kuq,wn to us," said an ofiicial today, "so they do not dare lo scatter and return to their homes because they know they would be arrested immediately. It is only a I question of rounding them up, which I may take considerable lime, especiaily i in rough mountainous country like I that surrounding the pceno gf Satur-I day night's ambuscade." Six Americans 'Arrested gation.
