We understand that as a result of the police prosecution of Bartley Hynes for putting his name in Irish on his cart Mr Edward Martyn has ordered his name to be put in Irish on all his carts and so has Lady Gregory. It is said that the cards in question will be sent at an early date to Kinvarra. We shall see if the English-speaking police of that quarter take any steps to prosecute Lady Gregory and Mr Edward Martyn for what they summoned Bartley Hynes. The end of the matter is that Irish police must learn Irish and if they do they will understand that Irish characters are “legible.”
