Summary Edit

Hints & Hits 12: "Justice to Ireland - or Saxon Law", William Tell, Dublin, 1844

This, the final cartoon in the series, addresses directly the legal proceedings relating to the trial, with the state's legal officers, Attorney General Smith and Solicitor General Moore, preparing the case of the prosecution. On the right, memship cards of the Repeail Association and 'Volunteers of 1782'are pasted into the state scrapbook, while, on the left, the pile of scrap paper contains all the contrary evidence - 'Peaceable meetings', 'Temperance', Moral and constitutional reform', 'Right of free discussion'. About to join them is the slogan frequently displayed at Repeal meeting, 'The maon who commits a crime gives streength to the enemy'. Having prepared and skewed the case, the lawyers turn to doctoring the jury list, cutting out the '60 bad names' and leaving 'a list of the right sort for anti-national purposes'. An observing O'Connell assures his followers 'Na Bocklish (never mind), I'll drive a coach and horses through this judge-made law'.
