LIFE IN A LONDON LODGING-HOUSE. ALLEGED FRIGHTFUL OUTRAGE ON A GIRL. DISGRACEFUL CONDUCT OF A WOMAN. Lewis Keavy, 38, an eating-house keeper, of Church-lane, Whitechapel, was charged at Thames Police Court on Saturday with assaulting Sarah Schwatz, a single woman, of 22, Back Church- lane. Prosecutrix, who was unable to speak English, and whose evidence was interpreted by Mr. Schmit, the interpreter to the court, said she was eighteen years of age, and had been domestic servant to the prisoner, but was only there one day-last Sunday. As so many roughs frequented the house she told the wife of the accused that she should not remain there. Her mistress then went to the prisoner and said," She is going. Now you can go into the girl." His wife then told a number of young men they could do what they liked with witness, and if they felt inclined they could kill her. There were altogether about 28 men there. One of the men placed his hand over her mouth so that she could not call out, while another man closed her eyes with his hands. She was then thrown down, and the men acted in a shocking manner towards her. During the whole of this time she was being held down, and was also struck by someone. The pri- soner was there during the whole of the time, and encouraged the young men. Witness fainted, and when she came to she found she was on the ground, and alone. The prisoner's wife came in and laughed at her. Witness then crawled out of the house, and went to a neighbour's, who took her in and gave her some refreshment. On Monday she went to Dr. Swyerd, who treated her. She afterwards came to the court and obtained a warrant against the prisoner. By Mr. Ogle, who appeared for the defence: She applied on the Monday for a warrant, but then had no money to pay for it. Before she went to prisoner's house she had lived at 40, Castle-street, which was a restaurant. The young men who used the house were not any of those she saw in prisoner's house. The latter were quite strangers to her. After that she lived at a house in Grace's-alley, but not with a man. Since the assault she had not received any money from the young men who assaulted her. but had got 10s. from somebody whose name she did not know. All S, the young men helped to assault her. When the prisoner urged the young men on his wife was present. Mr. Lushington: I am going to order a warrant to be taken out against the wife. Cross-examination continued: After the outrage was committed upon her she was taken back to Castle-street. Detective Patrick Enright, H Division, said at half-past eight on Friday night he arrested the prisoner at his house in Church-lane. On telling him the charge he said, I know nothing about it. I was out at the time." When charged at the station he made no reply. Witness had known the prisoner for about four years. Mr. Lushington ordered the prisoner to bo re- manded.
