|Main Creator:||Connolly, James, 1868-1916|
This article is concerned with a meeting of the Employers' Association to be held on New Year's Eve. Connolly attributes a witty and humorous but apocyphal speech to William Martin Murphy which is explained in the note at the end. He ponders whether their reporter may have invented this speech, as "Murphy's reporters have hitherto invented so many speeches attributed to Larkin".
