THE CASE OF MRS. DRUCE, I Mrs. Anna Maria Druce promises some startling developments in connection with the strange and bewildering case, with which her name has been so prominently associated. In the course of an inter- view on Saturday afternoon, Mrs. Druce announced tier intention of instituting criminal proceedings igainst the chairman of the Highgate Cemetery Company, as the official responsible for the alleged illegal erasure of her son Sydney George Druce's name from the company's register at the head offices in New Bridget-street, Ludgate- sircus, as the owner of the disputed vault at Highgate. Mrs. Druce further declared that active steps were being taken with a view to facilitating the long-threatened proceeding against the Duke of Portland in the House of Lords. This week she has to meet three financiers of prominence, and hopes that between them they will find the £ 20,000 or P.30,000 necessary to bring matters to a final issue before the highest tribunal in the land; It was further stated by Mrs. Druce that her efforts have resulted in securing some extraordinary evidence by persons still living as to the real character of the much-debated funeral of the Charles Thomas Druce whose identity has, through recent events, been enveloped in so much mystery. The lady evidently takes a very hopeful view of the general outlook, and promises many surprises for the public.
