Since the beginning of the revolt it would appear that

some eighty of the inciters to murderous riot—they do not deserve the name of rebels, often one of honour—have, been sentenced. Six of the seven signatories to the proclamation of the " Irish Republic " have been executed, and the seventh, James Connolly, is suffering from a wound in his leg, and is therefore not yet in a condition to bo tried. Some thirteen death sentences have been carried out, while there have been four sentences of imprisonment for life, twenty- one of ten years, two of eight years, three of five years, thirty-three of three years, two of two years, and two of one year.
