A CLERGYMAN'S DAUGHTER.
CHARGED AT BOW-STREET WITH FRAUD.

At Bow-street Police Court today, Catherine Louisa Lovat Fraser, alias Lovat, alias Mrs. Rothschild Owen, 23, of no fixed abode and of no occupation, was charged on a warrant with obtaining a dress, worth 5 pounds, from Lila Hickman, by fraud.
Detective-Sergeant Collins, of Scotland-yard, said that on Saturday he saw the prisoner at the Edinburgh Police Court, and arrested her on the warrant. She replied, "Yes. I admit having had the dress, but I did not steal it." Sergeant Collins added that the Scotland-yard authorities had received numerous complaints from London, the provinces, and the Continent as to the conduct of this woman, and he was instructed to apply for legal aid. The prisoner was stated to have been engaged in a series of frauds extending, over twelve months, and to have obtained hundreds of pounds by false representations, that she was niece to Lord Lovat, and married to a member of the Rothschild family.
Sir James Vaughan remanded the prisoner, and certified for legal aid.

NATURE OF THE PRESENT CHARGE.

In respect to the present charge, it is alleged that the prisoner ordered a dress which was to be delivered and paid for at Charing-cross Station. When the messenger brought the dress she sent her away on an errand, and in her absence, so it is stated, went off with the dress.
The prisoner was charged at Edinburgh with obtaining goods by fraud, and kept in custody for three weeks in default of finding a surety in 20 pounds.
The prisoner, who was for some time engaged as a nurse at one of the London hospitals, is the daughter of a Welsh clergyman, who is said to be the younger brother of the claimant to the Lovat estates. She is alleged to have obtained goods in Edinburgh under the representation that she was Miss Fraser Lovat, of Bewly Castle, Invernesshire.

A POLICEMAN CHARGED WITH PERJURY.

At North London police-court yesterday William James Rolls, police constable 234, of the J division of the Metropolitan police, was charged on a warrant for committing wilful and corrupt perjury when giving evidence against a prisoner. - Detective-inspector Collins asked the magistrate to take sufficient evidence to justify a remand, and then to certify for legal aid. - Mr. H.H. Richardson, who appeared for the defence, asked that all witnesses might be ordered out of court, as this was a most serious charge against a man who had borne a good character for 18 years as a Metropolitan police-constable. - Mr. Fordham acceded to this request, and then Mr. Hobbs (second clerk) proceeded to read the sworn information upon which the warrant for the prisoner's arrest was granted. - The details were given last week, when Joseph Wheelerbreed, 9, Upton-road, Kingsland, cabinet-maker, was charged with being a suspected person, loitering at Pownall-road, Dalston, for the supposed purpose of committing a felony. - Police-constable Rolls, who preferred that charge, produced in court a hammer and the blade of a knife, which he said he found upon the prisoner, and which, it was suggested, would be useful in forcing back window catches. - Wheelerbreed denied the whole of the constable's statements, and satisfied the magistrate that he had been falsely charged. - Detective-inspector Collins gave evidence of the arrest of the prisoner, and added that the latter made no reply to the charge. - Mr. Fordham remanded the prisoner, and refused at this stage to grant bail. - The police are now seeking for the actual owner of the knife and hammer.
