AGRARIAN OUTRAGES.

AGRARIAN OUTRAGES. Among the Parliamentary papers issued on Monday is a memorandum moved for and signed by Mr. Arthur Balfour," as to the principle upon which outrages are recorded as agrarian, and included as such in the returns laid before Parliament." This states that it is an error to suppose that all outrages not returned as agrarian ought properly to be classed as ordinary crime, as a large number of crimes specially characteristic of Irish disorder, such as maiming of cattle, firing into houses, moonlighting, and raiding for arms, may never appear in the return of agrarian outrages at all. Thus," says the memo- randum, "to give illustration drawn from well-known examples, neither the Curtin case, nor the case in which two girls wero attacked in their father's house by n party of men who cut off their hair and poured tar on the head of the elder; nor the case of the daughters of Daniel Jones, who were shot in the Kanturk district by a party demanding arms at their father's house, have been returned as agrarian crimes." The memorandum proceeds to show the different principles upon which statistics of agrarian outrages are now compiled from those adopted formerly, with the result of lessening the apparent number, stress being laid upon the statistics of 1870 in proof of this.
