EIGHT SHOTS ARE FIRED
Murder Attributed to Political Mo
tives; Sinn Teiner in Prison
tor Threatening Victim.
DUBLIN, July 20. Frank Brooke,
wealthy country gentleman, close
friend of Viscount French, lord-lieutenant,
and member of a committee
on Irish reconstruction appointed last
year by the viceroy, was assassinated
Mr. Brooke was killed in the di
rectors' room of the Dublin & South
eastern railway, where he had gone
to attend a meeting of the board, of
directors. Three assassins fired at
Brooke while he was talking with
another director. One shot entered
Brooke's lungs and he died im
mediately. Brooke had no time to
use his revolver.
The assailants escaped.
Revenge May Be Motive.
One reason assigned for the shoot
ing of Mr. Brooke is his association
with Viscount French. Robert Bar
ton, member of parliament for East
Wicklow, was sentenced to three
months' imprisonment early in the
year on a charge of threatening Vis
count French and coupling Mr.
Brooke's name with that of the lord
lieutenant. Another suggestion is that the
shooting was in reprisal for dismissal
of railwaymen for refusing to operate
trains carrying police and soldiers.
Mr. Brooke in political quarters had
been conspicuous only during the last
12 months as the confidential friend
and adviser of Viscount French.
Patrol In Ambushed.
A military patrol was ambushed
and relieved of its arms 12 miles
from Dublin today.
A resolution introduced In the
council of the chamber of commerce
calling for a measure providing for
complete Self-government for Ireland
has created much interest, as the
chamber represents all large business
interests of the city and includes at
least 90 per cent Unionists.
The Freeman's journal says the
resolution is apparently an indorse
ment of its proposals for dominion
