COUNCILLOR SENT TO PRISON. For alleged conspiracy to cheat and defraud a landlord, James Mander Burrows, Councillor Frederick Rawlings, and Augustus Harper, were sentenced at the Old Bailey on Tuesday by Judge Rentoul. In October Burrows offered himself as a tenant of offices at 151, Strand, at a rental of JE95 per annum. He gave as, referene" Coun- cillor Rawlings and Mr. Harper. The references proved satisfactory, and Burrows was accepted as a tenant. No rent, however, was paid, and in February Burrows was given notice to quit. On behalf of Rawlings and Harper it was sub. mitted that they honestly believed Burrows to be a respectable man. Judge Rentoul sentenced Burrows to six months' imprisonment, and Rawlins^ who would lose his position as a COuncilioiF^^ie borough of Camberwell, and Harper each to three months' imprisonment. Mr. Curtis Bemiett (defending Rawlings) inti- mated that I-pis client would appeal.
