A SLY DOG." U!j? EARL S APPLICATION. JOURNAL'S ALLEGED CONTEMPT OF COURT. An application was made on behalf of Earl FitzwillLarn in the Divorce Court, on Tuesday, for a writ of attachment against the editor and manager of Nlodei-ii So- ciety," and against the manager of tha firm of printers of that paper, far alleged contempt of court in publishing references to the pending Leslie-Melville divorce case, in which Earl Fitzwit ;am is one of the co- respondents. Counsel submitted that the article pub- lished would have the effect of prejudicir.g the parties of the litigation. Calling at- tention to the passages complained of, he .said that there was a paragraph headed, Is Lord Fitzwilliam a badly-used man or a sly dog?" which read :— Lord Fitzwilliam, if guilty, must he a sly dog, because at the time that King George and Queen Mary were enjoying his hospitality last summer in Yorkshire, n-t a soul knew anything about the little trouble at Wentworth, and Lord Kitz vill'am lad alwavs been regarded as ONE OF THE "UNTOUCHABLES' of the nobility." The paragraph went on: Lady Fitz- william is broken-hearted as a result of the trouble over the coming divorce, as if Mr. Leslie Melville is successful it will mean the parting of the ways at Wentworth, Woodhouse, and she and Lord Fitzwilliam will have to part under a decree pf Sir Samuel Evans or oue or other of the Divorce Judges." Counsel contended that the publication of SUCH SCURRILOUS FALSEHOODS might influence the jury. Counsel for Mrs. Leslie Melville said that that lady denied absolutely the charges against her, and supported the application. Counsel for Mr. Frank Harris said the latter was not the editor of the paper or writer of the article. He was the managing director. Mr. Harris had had an opportunity of apologising, and had net really done so. Defendant was removed from the couxt in the custody of the tipstaff. n,:
