THE IRISH QUESTION.
The Judges Threatened [By Cable.]
London, Dec. 15.
The intimidation of landlords in Ireland by evicted tenants and Leaguer continues without abatement, and fresh forms of outrages are heard of almost daily, especially against landlords who have been ostracised by people of their district. The latest form of intimidation by the leaguers is prevention of export of cattle by those landlords against whom .they have a spite, and several cases in which cattle intended for export have been prevented from leaving farms are reported, The judges of the Irish Supreme Court have received letters, threatening them with murder if they convict Land Leaguers at their approaching trial for conspiracy. The Ministry continue to meet daily in Cabinet for the consideration of the various measures to be introduced when Parliament reassembles. At yesterday’s Council meeting, the question of bringing forward an Irish Land Bill was discussed for some time, and the various points of the proposed measure were gone into by Ministers.
