So many different stories In regard
to the famous tunnel of Llbby Prison

adding mine to the number, writes
MaJ. U P. Williams, of the Seventy
third Indiana. In National Tribune.
How to pet out of Llbby ti at all
times an absorbing topic. Every
means of escape was studlel over, dis
cussed and carefully considered, until
at lift a few enterprising men came
to the conclusion that a tunnel was a
practical yoheme, and early In Jan
trsry, 1SiI, commenced the work,
which required weeks of patient and

Thus inch ly Inch the work pro
v:reed with the preatest secrevy and
rautlon. t'aix-ful w atohfnluess was
kept ti nlht and day to seo that the
plan was uot discovered.
On Sunilay lilpht, Kebruary 7, in
irror occurred which nearly proved
fatal lo Ihe enterprise. It had been
ery difficult to avert a In the exact
width of the street, and Tr that rea
son It was hard (o tell Just where the
tunnel should end. When, as thought,
tho proper distance had b--a reached,
the dli-ner worked their way to the
surface, but lo their dltt,ay found
.hey werti i ii'.m dlntatice short of the
proper place, and wero emerpltiK kl
most under the feet o( Ilia setuty.
The work wan continued by fillin:
up the place as well as possible, and
rolnjf on with the excavation until
the proper distance was reached,
whin an opening wn mado to th
Tuesday night, February 9, was the
time fixed to try the escape. About
daik on that evening the plans began
to be whispered from one to knottier.
The order of departure had been ar
ranged, go that ail who woiked on trf
tunnel were to go first, tho friends
whom they had selected to go next
In regular order. After that a!!. others
as be.u (hey could. It was a slow
process, getting down the chimney,
crossing the cellar and crawling
through the tunnel.
The first man passed out about
seven p. m.. and arter him a ntimber
of others hsd succeeded In getting out
safely, by which time quite an eaer
crowd had gathered In the room Im
patiently awaiting their turn, when
some one, cither maliciously or mis
takenly, raised an alarm that ths
guards were coming, and a stampede
occurred. 1 supposed that all was dis
covered, and was thinking of retiring
to try blanket, but soon found that it
was a false alarm, and quickly Rath
erins my squad toother, we took ad
vantage of the quiet that followed the
uproar. I led off and pot in'o the
chimney and t-eired the rope, bat In
n-.r cu'prncss did rot grasp It tlr-rht
enough, and It siippoj tnrougn my
hands and I dropped to the bottom of
the cellar, and It seemed as I went
down the chimney that It was CO feet
deep at least.
We were soon at the mouth of the
tunnel. One man started In, and I
quickly followed. In order to F t
through it waa necessary to lie flat
donn and work one's se'.t through in
that position. About the middle of
the tunnel I pot fastened by my over
era', which I had rolled up Into as
fma'.l a bundle as possible, petting in
by my ;de and completely wedeinff
me fast. My only cliance to pet loose
was to back out a few feet, and as
some one was following close at tr.y
heels I was compelled to give him a
few vigorous kicks, when be retired
a short distance, and I was relieved.
How Ions that place seemed. I would
haie said It was at least 100 yards
Instead of only about 60 feet. The
roar of the noise as we crawled
Armttrn i.v ucj-m
thro.ich was to t;ie like the sound of
waions In a cove red trid:;e.
The opening lro::i the tunnel can:e

1 The story beet can be told by years;
tbe story of the little pirl overbur
