    I do not come here to preach any doctrines of passive obedience or non-resistance. You have had to fight for your liberty before."- Mr. Balfour to the Orange men in the Ulster Hall, Belfast, April 4th, 1893. "The Orange crowd became very menacing towards 11 o'clock (on April 22nd)...A rush was finally made for the public house of Mr. J. Connolly, Peter's Hill, Belfast. With shouts of 'Clear them out!' the mob broke in the windows, hunted all the hands out, and attempted to fire the place. Mr. Connolly, a Catholic, had to escape over the back wall, and the rest had to fly. A barrel of whiskey was then rolled into the street, while other carried off bottles of brandy, and everything they could lay their hands on." - Daily Papers of Monday, April 24, 1893.
