THE TICHBORNE CLAIMANT RECOGNISED AS ARTHUR ORTON. We have received a Jong and carefully written state- ment of the particulars of an interview which recently took place at Swansea, between Mr. Whalley, M.P., atjd Mr. B. Biggs, of 64, Bute-street, Cardiff. In this document the writer, Mr. Biggs, daclares that he re- cognised the "Claimant" as Arthur Orlou, and in- formed Mr. Whalley that he knew him, by his fea- tures, the general expression of his countenance and his hair." The writer also states that he saw Orton in Australia, who described himself to be the son of a shipping butcher, at Wapping, London." Mr. Biggs further declares that he bought a double barrelled gun of the Claimant," at the time he knew him as Arthur Ortgii, and gave £2 for it. He further alleges that he recognised Sir Roger as Orton directly he entered the public room in which the meeting was held at Swansea, and that he and two friends who were withhim remarked that the "Claimant" appeared to fix his eyes on him (Mr. Biggs) in evident recognition as soon as he came into the place. The communication which we have received details at length the interview which Mr. Biggs had with Mr. Whalley and the Claimant's" friends and the allegation that the writer of it knew the" Claimant" as Orton, when. in Australia, is re- iterated in every page. As we have no desire to pre- judge the case, we simply lay before our readers an outline of the statement, which, if it is of a reliable character, should claim the attention of the Afctoruey- General. There ought to be no difficulty in testing the truth of an allegation which, to say the least, bears upon it the impresifof verity.
