THE LEWIS CASE.

THE LEWIS CASE. There was another startling development in what is known as the Lewis case, when Millie Marsh, the young servant girl who is charged 011 her own confusion with having committed perjury at Lewie's trial at the Middlesex Sessions, again appeared in the dock at the Westminster Police-court. After Lewis' con- viction Marsh confessed that she had committed perjury, and stated that Lewis was not guilty. Then she made another statement, which tended to discount the value of the first, and after- wards promised to make a third. Mr. Charles Mathews, for the Director of Public Prosecutions, said he had to ask for a further remand. In the course of the morning, he continued, a statement of considerable im- portance made by Brady had reached the autho- rities. "In that statement," he said, "facts are disclosed which bear on the guilt or innocence of the woman before you, and at the same time bear very considerably upon the case of Lewis. Inquiries into the statements made are, there- fore, imperatively necessary." Brady is at present under remand for being concerned in alleged cheque forgeries. After Mr. Mathews' statement Marsh handed to the magistrate a long blue envelope. Mr. Curtis Bennett said that the statement must be thoroughly investigated, and tha all he facts must be placed before the Attorney-General- He agreed with Mr. Mathews as to the impor- tance of an adjorunment, and Marsh was accord- ingly again remanded. RELEASED "WITHOUT PREJUDICE." The young man George Lewis was on Monday night released from Pentonville prison by order of the Home Secretary. The official announce- ment is as follows :The Home Secretary has given dirscfckms for Lewis's release.- This release is without prejudice to the proceedings now pending against Brady and Marsh, or to any further proceedings which may result from investigations now being made into the state- ments of those prisoners." It was about seven o'clock when the order authorising the release of Lewis reached the prison. Half an hour later a warder entered the young man's cell, and found Lewis in bed. The warder told him to get up and dress. Lewis was puzzled. He thought ho was required to c&rry out some task, and so he asked, "Won't the morning do?" But the warder offered him no explanation. He merely told him to be quick and put on his clothes. Wondering what this order meant, the young man dressed hurriedly. The warder then took Lewis before the governor, who showed him the Home Office order for hits release, and he was accordingly discharged. Lewis, on leaving the prison, went first to the house of a relative, not wishing to agitate his mother by an unannounced appearance. Mean- while people began to call upon Mrs. Lewis with the news of her son's release, and ere long the young man himself drove up in a cab. There was naturally an affecting interview betweej. Mrs. Lewis and her son, the mother expressing her delight at his release.
