LABOUCHERE CONTRADICTED
The Keeper of the Cleveland Street House Says He Was Not Assisted to Leave Belgium

Seattle, March 5.
Charles H. Hammond authorizes the Seattle press to contradict Labouchere's statement that he was assisted by the British Government to leave Belgium. He says he received no assistance from either consulate or legation and was never interfered with while in Belgium, where he lived for six weeks in a small village near the French frontier, when he proceeded to Antwerp via Brussels. While he kept house in Cleveland street he says he was completely paralyzed as he can prove by well known London physicians. He therefore claims he was not responsible for what was going on in the house. Hammond says he cannot tell if Somerset ever slept in his house or not. He never inquired of his guests their names or business. Some of them he knew well, among them many young students of good family - for instance, the brothers Beveridge. Hammond believes that much perjury had been going on in London in connection with the case. He says that many things which happened in C.J. Hammond's house in Euston road may have been attributed to his house in Cleveland street.
