THE "TIMES "-PARNELL COMMISSION.
Mr Davitt, continuing his evidence before the Commission, said he knew widow Walsh allowed her son to be executed for the murder of Constable Cavanagh rather than disclose the name of the real murderer. He strongly condemned much that had appeared itK the columns of the " Irish World " personally. He regarded the murder of Lord Frederick Cavendish as a most atrocious crime, and he declared he would have cheerfully sacrificed himself to save that gentleman's life. If he had been able to raise sufficient arms he would have risked his life to resist the Bodyke evictions. He asserted that it was he who induced Ford of the "Irish World" to abandon the dynamite policy.
