AHREST OF COLONEL LYNCH. I Colonel Lynch, who was elected M.P. for Gal- way City in November, but has not yet taken his seat, was tracked down on Wednesday morning by Detective-sergeant Fitzgerald at Newhaven on the arrival of the early morning boat there from Dieppe. The member for Galway, who was ac- companied by his wife and sister-in-law, was allowed to travel to Victoria before being actually arrested. Detective sergeant Fitzgerald, the Scotland-yard officer stationed at Newhaven, was waiting for the Channel boat, and he immediately recognised Colonel Lynch as he and his wife left the vessel. The officer followed them to the station, and travelled up to town in the same com- partment. On arriving at Victoria the officer quietly took his prisoner into custody, and conveyed him to Bow-street Police-station. It will be remembered that Colonel" Arthur Lynch was elected as the Nationalist representa- tive for Galway City on November 21 last year, defeating the Right Hon. H. C. Plunkett (Unionist) by 1247 votes to 473. His candidature aroused j much comment in political circles on account of his having, as was alleged, fought on the B-oer side against the British forces in South Africa, and the re-assembly of Parliament on January 16 was looked forward to with greater degree of interest on the point as to whether the Member for Galway would present himself at the House for the purpose of taking the Oath. The elected for Galway, the ex-" Colonel" of the Boer army and the well-known journalist, was duly placed in the dock at Bow-street Police-court on Wednesday morning, before Sir Albert de Rutzen, to answer a charge of having committed the crime of high treason. Immediately Inspector John Walsh came forward to give evidence of the arrest which took place at Victoria, as above stated. He was charged with the crime of high treason at Scotland-yard, and simply replied, Very well." On being further charged at Bow- street, to where he was taken, he kept silence on the warrant being read over. A remand until Saturday was ordered.
