It appears that there are still people who believe in

the Tich- borne Claimant to the extent of £5,000, for after some delay bail to that amount has been offered for his appearance on his trial for perjury. For the remaining £5,000 he will enter into his own recognizances. This provision of bail is a curious incident in the case, but less curious than the undoubted fact that there are still men, wholly uninterested in the matter, who believe firmly that he is Sir Roger Tichborne, and who, we believe, would not be oon- vinced if Sir Roger rose from the dead to give his testimony in the witness box. They would only ask what a stupid young soldier like that could know about any matter.
