370 CHAHLES STEWART PARNKLL
III. Wo find that the charge that * when on certain occasions they thought it politic to denounce, and did denounce, certain crimes in public, they afterwards led their supporters to believe such denunciation wan not nincere' in not established. We entirely acquit Mr, Parneli and the other respondents of the charge of insincerity in their denunciation of the Phoenix Park murders, and find that the facsimile letter on which this charge was chiefly based as against Mr. Parneli is a forgery.
IV. We find that the respondents did disseminate the * Irish World' and other newspapers tending to incite to sedition and the commission of other crime.
V. We find that the respondents did not directly incite persons to the commission of crime other than intimidation, but that they did incite to intimidation, and that the consequence of that incitement was that crime and outrage were commit bed by th© persons incited. We find that it has not been proved that the respondents made payments for the purpose of inciting persons to commit crime.
VI. We find as to the allegation that the respondents did nothing to prevent crime and expressed no bond fide, disapproval, that some of the respondents, and in particular Mr. Davitt, did express bond fide disapproval of crime and outrage, but that the respondents did not denounce the system of intimidation which led to crime and outrage, but persisted in it with knowledge of its effect.
VII. Wo find that the respondents did defend persons charged with agrarian crime, and supported their families, hut that it has not been proved that they subscribed to testimonials for, or were intimately associated with, notorious criminals, or that they made payments to procure the escape of criminals from justice.
VIII. Wo find, as to the allegation that the respondents made payments to compensate persons who had been injured in the commission of crime, that they did make such payments.
