tangu Samuel, Radical member of par
liament for White Chapel, was to-day
ordered by Justice Sir Sidney Rowlatt,
of the king's bench division, to pay

a contract with the British govern
ment. The money will be paid to
Dr. William Bird as informer.
This was the third suit brought
against Sir Stuart Samuel under the
law which gives any informer the
