THE UNFORTUNATE CLAIMANT. He Is III and Poor , WftlilJttlo to Oliecr Him K\cept u Paltliful Wife. Now York Sun : TheTieliborno claim ant was found yesterday in a pitiable .state of illness and poverty , lie xvas in a little room over a small optician's shop in Fourth uveniiu. Ilu lias been lyiuir there on his back for more than two months , sulloriiiK the pains of blood poi- soninji and all the thousand nameless ills of poverty. Whether ho bo Sir Roger Tieliborno , grievously unfovtiinnte baro. net , Arthur Orion , or Thomas Castro , the Australian butcher , this man's lito has boon a strange an' ' ! ovmitful history. The case in xvhicli hu figured as the claimant xvas ono oJ Uiu most celebrated on record , and lifto'jn yearn ago it mailo n great stir in the world. Hut the world soon forgets. Lust .July so few people remembered tlio O'.so that scarcely ; a corporal's guard could bo mustered in a Now York thea ter to hear the claimant tell his story. His friends xvcre hoon exhausted , and lie manager could bo found to take the risk of piloting him through the country. So ono morning the claimant paid his hotel bill and disappeared. Misfortune followed - lowed him to the humble lodging to which he retired with his wifu. A child xvas bora to them , and in a month it died. Thou the claimant fell ill , and was dis allied from doing anything for a living. Ho made a few dollars by writing , or providing the facts for somebody else to write , stories of lifo in tlie Australian diggings for the newspapers , but his tales xviiro not successful. Tlmn thu claimant's wife , a young woman , xviio had been a singer in London , sought an engagement under an assumed minie.and for a fexv weeks she sang anil danced In tlio concert halls of the Hoxvcry , earning just enough to live upon , She yesterday admitted thu reporter to the room which serves as bedroom , parlor and kitchen , where the ponderous form ol the claim ant was Hti etched upon the bed. Disease and worry have left their marks upon the man , but lie is still anything but emaci ated. A thin growtli ot gray hair and board surrounds his heax'y coiintonancu , but ho boars his sixty years as xvell as most men. The claimant's xvifo is a slight dark woman of the typo commonly scon on the variety stago. JJer accomplishments consist of thu knowledge of a fc\v songs and thu ability to dancu , Sim seems devoted - voted to the elephantine enigma , whose misfortunes slio shares. All tliu work of the humble housekeeping falls upon her. She takes care of the sicK man , cooks the meals , and does all thu little thmgs thut Jail to the lot of a poor man's xvilu. The heavy , somewhat stolid countenance of the claimant lights up with a kindly smile when hu speaks to her. Ho was di vorced from his first wife in Kngland , but in tiio variety actress he seems tohayu found a eongenjal mate , A singular thing about Iho claimant is his ability to make one oolieve in his earnestness. If ho be the greatest hum bug of thu ago , fin is the most persistent and consistent , 1'oiirtecn years in prison liavc not dampened his spirits or turned linn from his purport. Ilu talks as though no were the undisputed heir to the estates , ami assurts tlmt ho will re open the casu as scon as he can collect tut ucct-ssury funds.
