6 SEPTEMBER 1913, Page 3

The disturbances were renewed on Monday night, and rioters, who

stoned the police, broke windows,- and looted shops, were dispersed by baton charges. In all nearly six hundred persons, including fifty-seven policemen, have been treated for injuries at the hospitals, and three deaths have occurred. Charges of unnecessary brutality have been freely brought against the police, and after violent speeches a resolution was passed by the Dublin Corporation, on the motion of the Lord Mayor, calling for a public inquiry into the conduct of the police during the riots. Their action, however, is warmly defended by the- Nationalist Independent as well as the Unionist papers, the injury done to innocent people being regarded as inevitable in the circumstances.
