'THE TIMES'-PARNELL COMMISSION.

[l*Y Elkotiuc Tislkokafh—Oopybigut.J [Pb,r Pbess Association. I

LONDON, May 23.

la the course of his evidence before ' The Times' • Parnell Commission, Mr O'Brien admitted that he had denounced 600 Irish gentlemen for toasting the Queen, to whom ho had referred as "an old lady who scarcely decently disguised her hatred of Ireland." The London Press was responsible for the dynamite policy by pandering to the love of people for sensation. He said he had attacked the Prince of Wales on the occasion of liia visit to Ireland, because he came to counteract the Irish national sentiment, and also that ho might persuade the English that Irish feeling was a bogus feeliDg. He would have advocated rebellion in Ireland if he thought it would have been successful. Regarding the Manchester outrage on September 18, 1867, when the policeman Brett was killed in the forcible rescue of two Fenians, witness said he regarded the attempt at rescue as perfectly honest warfare. He did not believe Allen, Larkin, and Gould could be considered guilty of murder. He for one held them in respect. This remark was applauded by Messrs Parnell and Davitt, who were sternly rebuked by Sir James Hannen, the president of the Commission, who threatened to expel them from the precincts of the CotftL Continuing his evidence, O'Brien saia resistance to evictions was mere child's play. It was true that he travelled with Patrick Ford, editor of the ' Irish World,' when in America.
