|Main Creator:||Irish Loyal and Patriotic Union|
Unionist handbill contrasting the treatment of Charles Sugden with that of John Redmond [printing extracts from 'Era', 'The Irish Times' and the Freeman's Journal', all dated 13 November 1888]. Redmond (who conducted his own defence in the police court at Ferns) was sentenced to serve five weeks' imprisonment with hard labour in 1888 following what was seen as an inflammatory speech at Scarawalsh, Co. Wexford (which the authorities interpreted as a threat to a Col. Walker, a landlord from the area who had recently evicted a tenant - Redmond said in his speech that no new tenant would take the farm).
