ARREST OF BENSON. Benson, who has just been released after a long term of imprisonment for the great turf frauds, and who had absconded from this country, has been arrested in Brussels. He is, it seems, charged with fraud. and a man named Stenning, who was s associated witli him before he was sentenced to i penai servitude, was also arrested with him. It was not stated whether the offence for which the > prisoners were arrested was committed in this i country or abroad. i The Press Association says that little doubt is t entertained at Seotiand-yard that Benson, known in connection with the turf frauds, is one of the Englishmen arrested in Hrussels on the charge of I fraud, and that it is due to investigations made in consequence of information obtained by the English authorities, that immediately after his 1 release Benson and others commenced the organisa- tion of swindles on a gigantic scale, both in Belgium and Switzerland. A recent warning against a circular referring to the issue of gold watches is believed to be connected with one of the many frauds planned by Benson and his associates.
