EXTRAORDINARY ATTACK ON A SHOOTING PARTY. A Dublin correspondent writes Milktre?t has been the scene of an extra.ordinury outrage, and there is reason to believe that the result aimed at was the seizure of a number of guns belonging to a party of sportsmen. It appeared that four gentlemen, one a retired military officer, were engaged tor a few dys in shooting in the mountains near Millstreet. Nothing occurred during their sport; to indicate that a hostile demonstration was intended Thpv readied Mill-street' on Tuesday, and in the eveiLg they engaged two cars to convey them to the station, which is a mile from the town. The guns, am- munition, and dogs were placed on one car, which was sent on in advanco in charge of a man and the second vehicle was occupied by tin- sportsmen, one only of whom carried a gun. It was uite dark when they left Millstreet, and when 3.bout half-way to the station the purty found themselves assailed by 15 or 16 men, who sprang up suddenly from tlio side of the road. The men demonstrated round ine car, shouted, and attempted to stop the horse. Some of the assail- ants made an effort to seize those on the car. The gentleman with the gun scuick out vigorously with his weapon, while the others defended them- selves with their fists. The driver whipped on his horse, and succeeded in getting oil:, but stones were thrown* and two of the occupants of tho car were struck, one on the side of the head and the other on the breast. If there had been ammuni- tion available at the moment it would have been used, and the cowardly assailants might have had a different story to tell. The escape of the first car with the guns and aminu- nition was probably due to the fact that the foot- pads were ignorant of its contents. The matter was not reported to the police, as there was no time to do so before the departure of the train but even if there had been action taken by the police, identification of the assailants was" ren- dered impossible iu consequence of the darkness of the night.
