London, Oct 27.— Attorney General Web ster has concluded his opening address for rhe Times before the Parnell commission., dis conclusion was accelerated by a bint rem Justice Huiimra that he had trike«! •ong enough. When the m sbon opened Sir Kieliard continued the recital of a catalogue >f outrages supposed to I« traceable to mem bers of the h ague, and thru quoted from qieecht» of Mr. Dillon and other ParnoUites o prove their support of the plan »>f cam •aign. He intimated his intention to »leal at ength with violent orations of league mem bers made in County Clare during the yean» 18H5, 1H8U and 1887. Hir Chari©« Kussel! , counsel for Mr. Par nell, suggested that the attorney general night hand him copies of the sjieeclio« ho néant to quote from and thus save time. Sir Richard intimated that he had lots more to say, but at length concluded his re marks by stating that men who bad actually (anticipated in outrages would l»o called os witnesses, and they would tell what moneys had l>een paid to them, and how the crimes t hey were hired to commit were arranged. The court then adjourned until Tuesday. The disappearance of Mr. Parnell two days ago and his subsequent absent*. » have thrown the gossips and guessers into an acute stage jf curiosity and violent throes of specula tion. It is under*stood, however, that ho is cuperating at the seaside from the exces sive weariness caused by the monotony of 4ir Richard Webster's long drawn out speech, and will bo a pretty regular attend mt at the sittings of the commission when the taking of testimony begins. The Par iiellites, mean while, are analyzing the ad dress of the attorney general and express great surprise at the numerous discrepancies and inaccuracies therein concerning the sim plest matters of fact. They express the ul iilust confidence in their ability to demolish with eus** the entire Ht ructure of the case as presented and ultimate that The Times may expect more trouble from the police rojx>rt em it has called us witnesses than from any other persona who will testify in its behalf. Justice Hannan allowed the attorney gen eral the fullest latitude in presenting hU case, but will vigorously repress all attempts to introduce irrelevant testimony. In these circumstance» it is difficult to see how any considerable number of The Time»' witnesses i v«ui reach the witue-a box. Why William Will Not Visit Spain. Berlin, Oct. 27.— It has boon duelled that Euip ror WiT.i-.ni's visit to Spain shall not lake (tiare Until spring, hut the probabilities are that it will not take place oven then. The reasons given for the postponement are that lie could not take a direct laud route to Mad rid without traversing the entire length of France, which it obviously would bo iiii|s»»»i hle for him to do, nor could he roach tho Spanish capital by a sea journey without (Missing through the English channel. Should lie take tlie latter route he must necessarily, os a matter of decency, land in England. Not to do s j would unquestionably increase the tension between the London and Berlin courts, while a visit to the British Isles at this time would be quite as repugnant to Ills Ieelings, if not altogether as barren of enthu siasm, not to si y fruitful of insult, us would bis («»sage through France.

States, 1 am constrained to add pule m-ly to what I have already said more pri vately that 1 positively decline to bo a cau üdnte, An Unique and Interesting Let ter of Declination. TOO PURE FOR POLITICS. Alfred II. Dire Nays Hu Could Not Tull« the Vice Prcfthlcutlal Oath If Klectetl. Ills ('oimrlence Kven Forbid« Hl« I mi ol the Hullot Denied HU Mother. Lockwood ami I<ovo polos are l»*ingerected a various »lato»; 1 am receiving loiters ask ing for funds to prosecute the campaign; iluctorai tickets aro being prepared, etc., mid it should he known that 1 promptly and un xpiivocully declined. Although i havo not seen the p'atform, as 'nr as 1 am informed of its general principle« if ritual rights, oven handed justice, world vide philanthropy, licensing nothing which njurcs mankind, removing tho causes and tlsdisldug the customs of war, anil implant ing the principles and establishing tho condi tions of |ieaoe, I am thoroughly hi syiii|iathy. The IMii-t y you reprenait is developing a true national character und establishing the great moral forces of our being. But I would make ii |»s>r candidate, Indeed, when I can not ask, by vote or other» iso, any one to do what 1 would not do myself, and could not hold office under a constitution that makes "tho president of the United States com mander in chief of the army and navy ;" that gives "congress the power to declare war, grant letters of marquo and reprisal, raise and support, armies, provide for calling for tho militia;" that declares that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not lx) infringed," and provides for similar acts in consistent, Inexpedient, subversive of the last interests of humanity, and contrary to the light of divine truth os revealed to me. Ho you see If elected (and wo must always count on victory!) what then Î How could I take the oath of office) Mental reservations are neither fair nor allowable. I have lieen on trial, and when tain him in that which 1 hud asked of him. I refused, conscience said not 1 voted (or a congressman, and I found I empowered him to declare war. Thus I realised I could not vote elean handed under a war constitution, nett lier could I touch the ballot denied my mother, sister, wife aud daughter. I could nut use it when refus »! to the black man, or vote in a tavern. Happily, by continued protest and appeal, the ballot is no longer one of complexion, and wo are rapidly hav ing temperance polling houses. May the same efforts secure equal right« and peace. I surely want to vote, and when qualltied would willingly do my part in gov ernment affairs. Where there is a sacrifice, there is a gain. You certainly see I cannot honestly bo a candidate. To those who con, let, there be no comlumuation, but hearty commendation for their willingness to serve, if it lie done from tho purest motives. In this race for office it is often disgusting to see the number who seek it merely for popularity or gain, but in the efforts of the Equal Rights party to ad vance the cause by this means, so honest and |K>tent, ail honor to it and to our brave aud faithful Mrs. Lockwood. It is said my "acceptance would lie a powerful lover to help onward arbitration, woman suffrage and temperance." These aro, indeed, among "the things which make for peace," but we must deepen as wo widen; conscience sacrificed to expediency Is danger ous. We sometimes weigh heavier outside the ballot box thau in it.
