On December 25 three young men named George Knox, James Kane, and James Slevin were arrested in Strabane on a charge made by a man named John M. Farley with having discharged a cartridge of dynamite in the window of his house on Barrack street, fortunately doing no personal injury. Slevin and Kane were not charged, but Knox was returned for (missing) bail being accepted.
