London, November 1. The evidence given bj Capt. O'Shea before the Commission was damaging to Parnell, and he was subjected to severe cross-examination by Sir C. Russell. He identified Parneil's signature to the letters, but denied he had furnished them to the " Times." He also proved that Parnell was m com- | munication with Sheridan. The witness admitted he was himself acquainted with the Fenians, and knew Hayes, who was suspected of being concerned m the dynamite explosion on London bridge. O'Shea stated he had believed j Parnell to be free from any connection with crimes m Ireland until he learned during 1886 that Parnell was aware of Sheridan's act. Upon ascertaining this he turned Parnell out of his rooms m Dublin. The witness . further stated that Sir W. V. Harcourt, at Mr Gladstone's suggestion, had urged him to be reticent regarding the parleying between the Liberal Government and the members imprisoned m Kilmainham. Later. Evidence before the Parnell Commission was unimportant, and the proceedings were adjourned till Tuesday. (Reoelrad Norember 3, noon*) LoNDoy, November 1 and 2. Sir R. Webster and Sir H.
