THE LONDON SCANDAL
Sir Charles Russell Will Plead for Albert Victor
The Sun's London cable says: It is rumored that Sir Charles Russell had given up his brief for Lord Euston in the libel action regarding the Cleveland street scandal, and accepted one from the Prince of Wales. He will watch the case in the interest of Albert Victor of Wales, whose name has been persistently dragged into the affair.
It is evidently Lord Euston's tactics to cripple Editor Parke by heaping up costs by leans of legal motions and other expensive processes, only too well known to the legal fraternity. Lord Euston will probably apply for a removal of venue to the court of the Queen's bench. Parke states that he has some very strong evidence in reserve.
