THE MOTOR RACE.
APOLOGY FROM “MOTORING ILLUSTRATED.”

The conductors of “Motoring Illustrated,” whose references to the historical features in the motor race course evoked a strong protest from the Mountmellick District Council, have forwarded to that body a liberal apology, in which they explain away the gibes on dead Irish kings as the production of a young writer with a “distorted sense of humour,” who has since been reprimanded. The apology will come before the Council at to-day’s (Saturday’s) meeting.
