photographed with his sister, and had
sent one of the photographs to his for

and their ways. The deference with
which he observed they were every

the uniform counted for vastly more

and after seizing all the. money he
could lay his hands on in the municipal
treasure chestonly $1,000to send the
burgomaster Dr. Langerhans, a pris
oner to Berlin, under an armed guard.
But perhaps the most striking.feature
of the affair, and significant of the sub
serviency in Germany of the civic to
military authbrities, was the aid Voigt
received from the Koepenick police.
Aided by the Police.
The chief of the ^Koepenick police
took orders from Vojgt without cpies
tion The uniform hypnotized him as
it did everybody else. By Voigt's direc
tions he placed a squad of police
around the town hall to keep the crowd
back, and as proof o his zeal, actually
arrested five citizens whose curiosity
got the better of their discretion. In
his wildest extravaganzas, Gilbert
never conceived anything more ludi
crous than a municipal police force
helping a thief to loot the municipal
tieasury and arresting honest men to
make things easier for him.
All but a small poition of Voigt's
loot ha? been recovered. In Germany,
many times the value of what he stole
has been made by exploiting his ieat.
Two or three comedies have been put
on the sta^e, founded on the gigantic
hoax, in which the Central -role is that
of the bogus captain. A fortune has
been made out of the sale of comic
postcards. Only red-tape fettered offi

But wherever he obtained work, police
supervision prevented" him from hold

because there was no way open to him
by which he could make a decent living
honestly that he conceived the idea of
effecting a coup which he hoped would
bring him money enough to enable him
to live without work, and wed his old
sweetheart. That story may be taken
