THE TIC HBO URNE CASE.

ORDER MADE FOR CRESSWELL'S

EXAMINATION.

SYBNEY. November 11. I

The Tichbourne case cropped up again to-day in the Supreme Court. Mr. Edward Priestman, who was acting on behalf of the Rev. J. Williams, desired that an examin- ation should be made of William Creswell, an inmate of the Gladesville Lunatic Asylum, with a view to establishing Cress well's identity with Roger Tichbourne. Tho application was based on certain facts which had been collected by Mr. Priest man, in conjunction with Messrs. WaBace & Robson, solicitors, with the object of proving Cresswell and Tichbourne to be one and the same person. The principal point relied on was that Tichbourne had certain tatoo marks on his body, and the permission of the court was sought for Cresswell's body to be examined by two medical men, to ascertain if corresponding tatoo signs appears on it. Mr. Justice Manning said that in the interests of all parties it was desirable that the matter should be settled definitely and without delay. If it could bo ascertained that there were marks on CressweU's body identically the same as those said to have been on the body of 'Tichbourne, they would get nearer a settlement of the diffi- culty than had yet been attained. Under these circumstances, he ordered that Cress well's body should be examined by doctors McCormack and Fiaschi.
