Lord Claud i Hamilton'said: "Does it not strike you how marked the contract of the- smooth and suc- cental working of the gigantic Usk i imposed upon the committee of gen- eral managers with the reckless and haphazard manner In which much of the work also under, or partially un- .der, government control has been ad- ministered? The reason of the differ- ence: is obvious. In the one case the work feu been performed by prac- business men; in the other case the preponderance of poll- tMani, lawyers and government ofll- i many instances without any i reel business been I the cause of a terrible waste of public I money, of inefficiency, and of unpar- j donable delay.

She talked in a brogue so broad that it was' neces- sary to ask her to write the words before-they could be understood. This she did smilingly. After identifying Casement, she told how she had seen the latter in the custody of a able. She did not. recognize Bailey. At this point the attorney-general Sir Frederick Smith, took a hand in .he proceedings, lie conducted the examination of JohivHearne of the Royal Irish who vas summoned by McCarthy when .he found the. boat.' It was Sergeant iearne who arrested Casement near Tralee. The sergeant said that, ac- companied by Sergt. Riley he search- ed the country around and at length 'ound m the" old fort "a prisouer iu the dock, the tall mau; The sergeant'continued: 'T asket rim who he was. lie said his naine as Richard Morton that his home vas at Denham Bucks, that he was MI author and that he had written a hook on the "life of St. Brendan."

Riley take from Case- icnt a document giving an account f his movements in Germany. Hearne epHed, "no, but there was a small aper, written in a foreign language hat was taken from Casement." In the cross-examination of Hearne tt was disclosed that Casement had objected strongly to being questioned and did not'submit, until one. of the constables levelled a rifle at him. On the way to ..the station he dropped c roll of papers which the police re- covered. for ,the jrebeta, besides ot'ier war material. "The Aud lay in ubaut 18 faUion.ii of the .diver said.

During the afternoon the prosecu- tion produced several other interest- ing exhibits. Among them was handbag which was. found buried on the shore where Casement and his companions landed. This bag con- tained the greeii robe I flag .shown at Monday's session, considerable amount of ammunition and several maps of Ireland. It is charged that these show that the purpose of the prisoners in visiting Ireland was to participate Jn the uprising. A widow visiting her soldier son's grave on the field of the battle of the "Marne was herself killed by bombs dropped by a German aviator in pass- ing over the field.

Drove Caaemchi in Cart The star "-witness from the stand- point of human interest was Martin Collins, a farmer's lad of. 13 years who -was called to identify Casement as one of the'men arrested near Tra- lee. handsome little chap with a rich brogue, told with evident pride how lie had driven Casement and a constable for several miles when the prisoner was being taken to head- quarters. Much of the time he was testifying the.boy kept his ey.es on Casement anfl there was no hesitation on his declared the man in the dock: was the one he had driv. en in his cart. After the hearing had been in pro- gress for some.time-, Casement turn- ed his attention from the testimony to the writing of a long statement. While thus engaged he showed mark- ed emotion for the -first time since the hearing began. It was a striking change from the smiling and self-con- fident man of a short time- before.' At the afternoon session the pro- secution produced further testimony regarding events attending the arrest of Casement and 'Bailey. Much cf this was corroborative, the attorneys for the crown evidently to leave no detail uncovered. The constable who took Casement from Tralee to Dublin testified that the prisoner heard that a motorcar ran into a stream near Castlemaine and that two of the' occupants were drowned, whereupon he said: "I am very sorry for those poor men. It was on my account that they came here. They are good The motor car referred to, it is pre- aumed was the one which was sent to meet the men-when they landed. The chauffeur told of having been sent for some men, one of whom gave the nanse oE Mulcahay, whom the chauffeur recognized as Bailey. Con- stables told of Baily's arrest. Fate of German Ship The most interesting testimony of the day was the story of the fate of the German -ship Aud, which was sent out from Kiel'with arms and am- munition to fulfill in part promises of assistance.said to have been made "by the Germans. The Aud was held up on suspicion -off the west coast not far fro.m Tralee by the British naval patrojshlp Bluebell and was be- ing taken to Queenstown when she was sunk by her own crew. Details Of the capture and sinking were given by Sidney Waghorn, a signal man on the Bluebell, who said: "Early LADY ABERDEEN ASKS LENIENCY FOR IRELAND. Montreal.

Lady Aberdeen brought greetings Tom her husband to the council and addressed the members on a number of subjects. She made a strong ap- peal that Ireland should not be judged by the recent rebellion, which had been just as much an invasion aa any other, a rebellion stirred up and financed by Germany amongst the remnant of the strike organization built up years ago under Jim Larkln.
