‘THE TIMES’ -PARNELL COMMISSION.
[By Electric Telegraph.—Copyright.] [Per Press Association.]
LONDON, May 30,
Mr Arthur O’Connor, M. P. for Donegal E., giving evidence before the Commission, disclaimed any knowledge of the League’s books. He approved of boycotting land grabbers. Mr Justin M'Carthy admitted giving Byrne his cheque for LIOO in exchange for another cheque of a similar amount shortly before he fled to the Continent. He did not consider boycotting intimidation, even if by it caretakers were deprived of their means of living. He undertook to produce the cash book of the English branch of the League. Mr G. Lewis, solicitor for the defence, declared that he bad produced all the books of the League which were obtainable. He had never inquired for letters, cheques, and records of the Land or National League. ‘The Times’ seeks to postpone Mr Parnell’s action for libel until the Commission has sent in its report.
