•THE TIMES'-PARNELLCOMMISSION. LONDON, May 24.

MR PARNELL ON THE OUTLOOK, LONDON, May 24.
Mr Parnell, replying to a deputation who presented an address congratulating him on his complete vindication, declared that concession must follow concession until a National Parliament is restored. He had never admitted that the Commission was a fair tribunal to hear an issue that was incapable of decision by an earthly tribunal. The main issue had been ignored, but a political issue was put before men who were incompetent to give a fair decision on the subject. If the present constitutional movement failed to restore to Ireland the right to make her own laws, he would not lemain at Westminster twenty-four hours longer. But he believed that they were very near the realisation of their wishes. THEATRICAL. LONDON, May 24. The leading members of Mr J. L. Toole's company accompany him on his visit to Australia. IMPERIAL FEDERATION. LONDON, May 24. £7a.rl Rosebery presided at the a.zmna.l meeting of the Federation League. The report expresses regret that no branch of the League has yet been established iu New South Wales. It mourned the death of Mr Dalley. Earl Rosebery, in moving the adoption of the report, expressed regret that the Federal movement had not made greater progress in India, but it had made satisfactory progress in Australia and Canada. He suggested the sending of parties of workmen to the colonies in warships, in order that they might gain a knowledge of trade in the colonies, and reportthereon. Earl Carnarvon, whoseconded the adoption of the report, said that the adequate provision made by the colonies for their defence quite put England to the blush. He regretted that the Colonial Office was not sympathetic towards the cause of Imperial Federation, which was essential to the maintenance of the Empire. Lord Charles Bercsford said that the activity of the colonies in the matter of defence had compelled attention from England. The colonies were more important to England than England was to her colonies. The meeting was a small but influential one.
• The Times,' commenting on Lord Rosebery's suggestion to send workmen to the colonies, said he shou'd first suggest a scheme of Federation that will be practicable. The proposed step may be prudent, but it is not hopeful of any good results. The fiscal relations of the colonic* are the crucial point, but any agreement on a fiscal basis is out of the question while the colonies insist on taxing the produce of the Mother Country and allow heavy importations to come from foreign nations.
