London, April 10. In the course of his remarks tc-day, m continuing the opening speech for the defence before the *' Times"-ParneU Commission, Sir Charles Russell, Q.C., accused Major LeOaron (Thomas Philip Beach) of spending his life m an atmosphere of conspiracy, but that notwithstanding this he had been unable to give any warning to Government of any projected dynamite enterprise. Sir Charles said that Mr Parnell would deny that he ever told Major LeCaron that physical force was the only means left for redress of the wrongs of Ireland. Sir Charles dwelt on the utter failure of Major LeCaron to prove any alliance between the Parnellites and the real authors of crime m Ireland. It is expected that Sir Charles Russell wil oonclude his opening speech for the defence to-morrow, London, April 11. Sir Charles Russsell, continuing his opening speech for the defence before the " Times"-Parnell Commission, said the sole fact adduced by the other side whioh m any way connected the central office of the League with complicity with crime was that cheques signed by Kenny were applied to the assistance of the Castle Island moonlighters. But it would be shown that the money was voted at the time when the League was quite disorganised.
