Illustration of Dublin, Ireland looking west along the River Liffey and showing the positions held by the Irish rebels. North of the Liffey, the General Post Office, headquarters of the rebellion, and Liberty Hall, from which the rebels had started on April 24, are in flames, bombarded by British forces. South of the River, forces led by Countess Markiewicz held St. Stephen's Green under fire from soldiers in the Shelbourne Hotel. Kilmainham Goal, where the captured rebels would be held, and where their leaders would be executed, is in the distance.

Here is shown the scene of the Irish rebellion which figures in the capture of Sir Roger Casement, who now faces trial for high treason and a possible sentence to death. With him on the same charge will be tried Daniel J. Bailey, the Irish soldier, who landed on the Irish coast with Casement from a German submarine. The date of the trial has not been set, but it will probably take place in the near future.
