Little Rock, Ark., Dec. 28.-Reliable
reports of a widespread plot to free
convicts in the state's penal institution
were responsible for the mobilization

principal precautions are to be taken

Governor lBrough declined to discuss
details of the reported plot, and the
plans of the state authorities to coun

whether the plot included repOrts of
outside aid to the convics, as was the
case several days ago when trusties at

Fyom other sources it was learned
th't the troops stationed at the peni
tentiary will conduct P. thorough
search of the! convicts and the build
ings within the walls for saws, wea
pons or other tools or ialteril.s which
might be used in an escape, and under
orders from the governor prohibite'l
any visitors within the walls.
