New York, Dec. 3.
The World claims to have learned that Hammond, the man who kept the infamous house in Cleveland street, London, where the West End club scandals originated, and who fled to America, arrived here on the steamer Pennland about six weeks ago, and registered at a hotel in Christopher street as Charles Bolton, of Paris. He left for Philadelphia shortly afterward. He was accompanied by a boy who passed as his on. Hammond is said to have in his possession evidence incriminating several prominent members of the English aristocracy.
