A CUNNING DEVICE

TWO YEARS IN USE

(Received 10 a.m.)

LONDON, Nov. 21

' The Cologne correspondent of the "Times" states that the French general courts-martial have ended the operations of what is known a-s the "Escaping Company," consisting ot eight German partners. Each was sentenced in absentia to 20 years' hard labour and fined 3000 marks.

It appears that a prisoner in the Wittlech 'prison stole an official order of release for a pardoned man and gave the document to a. Wiesliaden woman, who founded the "Escaping Company." Facsimiles of the order were. maufactured and official stamps and signatures forged. The "company" with these procured the release of a large number of prisoners, including dangerous criminals, from Wittlech during the past two years. —Times.
