The engagement came as a total sur

to Miss Astor was known here, but no
one supposed that he had the ghost of
a chance of success. In London Capt.
Spender-Cla3's unpopularity ls almost
as conspicuous as that of Miss Astor's

tenced to. Ave years penal servitude on
the charge of fraud. He and Spender
Clay had been close friends, and Clay
indorsed NevIU's notes, unconscious of jH
the fact that they were notes. Sam
Levis, the famous money lender, sued
Clay for $50,000, the amount, and Clay
exposed Nevill. The scandal became
so great that; Lord Nevill was arraigned tM
ln Bow Street Police court and later

for "letting down" his friend, who had
promised to pay the notes within a
