The biddings at the wool sales to-day were animated and prices are firm; THE « TIMES "-PARNELL COMMISSION. Mr Davitt examined before the Commission deposed that individual members of the Fenian organisation committed assassination without the sanction of the governing body. He admitted that he once wrote professedly sanctioning murder and outrage, but he appealed to his superior officers to prevent the execution of such deeds. He had not attended a meeting of the Clan-na-gael body since 1880. He denied there was any alliance m Ireland between the Clan-na-Gael and the Land League, and he also denied that the former was a murder society. 4 Davitt, m his evidence before the Commission, praised the actions of Egaii, Ford, and Alexander Sullivan. He admitted he was a Fenian, but stated he did not approve ot crime. He regarded Parnell as a Tory. He opposed the dynamite policy, but he did not oppose the use of force where it might be considered necessary.
