IYULGE DIETAILS OF I
OE VALERA ESCAPE
Sean O'Cealligh Recounts I
Story of Remarkable Jail
Delivery of Sinn Fein
Leader on Feb. 3.
Paris, March 3.-While the news
papers oT the United Kingdom are i
still speculating over the mysterious i
escape from Lincoln prison in Eng- a
land of Edward De Valera, the Sinn g
Fein leader, the manner in which he c
effected his break from captivity Feb. L
3 has become known here. It was c
related by Sean O'Cealligh, the prom- I
inent Sinn Feinner who is here asking
the peace conference to recognize the I
provisional government of the 'Irish
republic, having crossed the channel
on a passport secured by a subter
"After the arrest of De Valera,"
Mr. O'Cealligh began, "he, with 12
comrades, was sent to Lincoln pris
on. The strictest watch was main
tained upon the prison. No friend or
relative was allowed to see him. lie
was permitted to write and receive
only three letters weekly. The most
stringent censorship possible was
maintained over his mail. It may be
seen, therefore, that it was most dif
ficult to get word to De Valera con
cerning his escape.
"The feeling in Ireland is intense
because these men should be kept in
prison. After the general elections
the first, meeting of the republican
members of the Irish parliament was
held Jan. 7 and another a week later,
it which the matter of the prisoners
was discussed. A committee was ap
pointed to take charge of the ques
tion of the release of the incarcerated
comrades and the first result of that
-onunittee's activity was the escape
)f De Valera.
"The committee selected a number
of men for the job who would not be
too timid in case there was gun play.
The prison lay in an isolated part of
the town. The rear looked out on a
large open space. Just outside the
back gate was a small patch of
ground on which the prisoners were
allowed to exercise under guard.
"This place was surrounded by a
series of barbed wire entanglements.
Several armed wardens watched the
prisoners while they were out and at
sunset a force of military was thrown
about the prison. It was decided to
be .unwise to rush the place for fear
of loss of life and the probable death
of De Valera.
" IlOe neXt move was to coi.tuiiu
cate with De Valera, which was very s
lifficult. However, one Sinn Feiner
started working on a garden plot, of
which there were several near the
prison. lie attracted De Valera's at
tention one day by singing Sinn Fein
songs in Gaelic, in which he told the '
leader that an attempt would be
made to rescue him. The wardens
suspicions were not aroused, because
it was not uncommon for Irish work
men to be about the prison.
"This mIan appeared again several
days later and again sang a ballad, in
which he told De Valera that the rear
exit of the prison was the most feas
ible for the attempt and asking De
Valera to secure uap impression of the
key to the gate.
"The impression of the key was
secured. I am not luite sure of th(
method, but I presume it was the
samne as the one 1, myself, emlployed
at one time, which was making a
paste of bread and soap and then
distracting the warder's attention
while the big key was slapped into
the paste for a second. This impres
sion was wrapped in paper with a
stone and thrown to the singer in the
"While this was going on four Sinn
Feiners escaped from the Usk prison
in Wales and this caused the au
thorities to double the guards of all
the jails and postponed the release of
"The sentries about the rear of the
prises were a grave menace to the
plans and the committee tried to flui
girls in the neighborhood who could
be employed to influence them. This
attempt was given up, however, and
finally cultured university graduatcs
arrayed themselves as shopgirls and
crossed the channel.
"The girls deliberately set out to
flirt with the soldiers and soon came
to know most of the guards. Dr
Valera. was informed by code in a let
ter that Feb. 3 was set for his escape
and the procedure to be followed was'
outlined as much as possible. This
little code had been arranged for just
such an emergency before De Valera
"On the eve of Feb. 3 four motor
cars packed with Irishmen were sent
wandering about the country near
Lincoln to serve as decoys for the
police. At 4 o'clock the prisoners
were brought in from their period of
exercise. They then had a three
hour period for wandering about the
prison before they were locked up
for the night.
"In the dusk, shortly after 4
o'clock, the girls appeared and en
ticed the guards from the rear of the
prison as far as possible. T'hen two
Sinn Feiners quickly cut a path
through the barbed wire.
"At 5 o'clock, De Valera, with Mc
Garry and Millroy (the two Sinn
Feiners who escaped with De Valera)
sauntered to the back gate. Theic
friends outside crept up and opened
the gate with the false key while the
sentries continued their flirtation
with ~he girls. An auto was waiting

Failure of Soldiers to Idol- the

Elsewhere for Timber.
Washington, ,March 1.--The pres- al
idential boom of Gen. Joh n J. Persh- stI
ing, which was the liveliest sort of an
affair even a few weeks ago, has
gone "blooey." This is the opinion we
of old political leaders ihere who lave no
been watching events with deep con

Pershing league organized in several
states might as well go out of busti
ness and shut up shop. The trend of
sentiment has not beten toward lGen

Depended oni Solliers.
Pershing as a presidential possibil
ity has been most seriously consid
ered ever since the armistice was
signed. Every war to date has pro
duced a president, and it was natur
al for the politicians to turn toward
Pershing first. They have been
weighing his possiblities carefully,
and some prayerfully, for there is
nothing the politican like better
to climb aboard a real bottom while
there are plenty of seats for "orig
inal for president" men. It was
admitted, of course, that General
Pershing's ability depended entirely
upon the attitude of the returning
5 soldiers toward himnt. If they referred
i to him as "Jack" Pershing and look
5 ed upon him as a hero, he could be
counted upon.to get the soldier vote,

came home in a critical frame' of
d mind, the Pershing b(oom was doom
