A LEGAL DILEMMA
Tangle of Red Tape In an Eng
lish Extradition Case.
GETTING AROUND THE LAW.
Only the Quick Wit of the Canadian
Police Inspector Kept a Notorious
Criminal In Custody When In Realty
He Was as Free as the Air.
The manner in which a prisoner ex
tradited to England from a foreign
country is treated while on the voyage
homo depends very much ort the de
tective wjUo has him in charge and
also on whether or no there Is any
suspicion that he may he contemplat
ing violence cither to himself or to
For Instance, in the case of Ja bo/.
Balfour, who was taken to England all
the way from Buenos Aires, there
was a stronir suspicion?probably 111
founded?that be contemplated com
mitting suicide. Consequently Inspec- ,
tor Froest, who bad him in charge, de
cided to take no risks that be could
The regulations do not permit of an
unconvlctod prisoner being handcuffed
on board ship once the vessel hns left
port, and he must bo allowed one
hour's exercise on deck each day.
These Indulgences. If Indulgences they
may be called, were therefore not
withheld from Balfour.
j But he got few others. For twenty
three hours out of every twenty-four
, ho was immured in a locked cabin. He
[ was not permitted even to eider the
i public dining room, his meals being
brought to him by Mr. Froest himself
i after the rest of the passengers had
fed. Ho was, besides, constantly
! watched und was subjected to a most
rigorous search immediately on com
Ills only relaxation was an occa
sional game of chess with some of the
passengers who kindly came 'to his
( cabin to play with him by permission
and In the presence of his keeper.
I This.sea imprisonment lasted exactly
j one month and a day, and Balfour
afterward declared thai il was the
most trying experience of a captivity
that was destined to continue for
m arly twelve years.
I One of the hingest end in Its later
stages one of tin? plensantost voyages
? ever undertaken by an unconvictcd
criminal was that which Charles llyl
I ton Davidson, the notorious forger.
made some years back In the custody
! of Chief Inspector Murray of the Ca
t nndian department of justice.
Murray tracked the wanted man to
Mexico and secured his extradition to
Canada. But then his dllllcultles be
gan. He could not bring his prisoner
to Canada by the direct route through
the United States, for immediately
Davidson set foot In that country he
could have demanded to be released.
There was therefore nothing for it but
to convey him by way of ,1a ma lea and
England and lhence back across the
Atlnutlc to Quebec.
On the voyage Murray kept David
son under close observation, although
allowing him considerably more fr.
dom than I'roest allowed Balfour.
' When, however. 1)0 hail got safely as
far as London he was both innrlllicd
and astonished at tit" likelihood of his
having had all his trouble for nothing.
The law was. he was told, licit a
prisoner extradited from a foreign
country to a British colony could not
bo kept In custody in England for
longer than twenty four hour-, nor
could he be taken as a prisoner Oil
board a British ship sailing from a
( British port.
Here was a dilemma. Dav idson was
free as air had he only known il.
Hut Murray was equal to the occasion
"Look here. Davidson." he said. "I've
go' you safe. There Is only the last
: stage of the journey to complete. 11'
1 allow you to travel saloon with me
as an ordinary llrsl class passenger
will you give nie your word to play
nie no tricks'.'"
To this proposition Davidson, know
ing nothing of the real slate of affairs,
j was naturally quite ready to agree.
' And so it came to pass that one of the
most notorious criminals Canada has
ever known came home in state: free,
yet not frei?, a voluntary prisoner, and
yet an involuntary one. Pearson's
appeal to Mr. Vorltv ? i><>so truth

eye. "Mr. Verity, do you think I sup

The Others looked eager attention ?p
see how Mr. Verity would get out of

"the truth on which you compliment
me forces mo to declare that your but
ter is one of your strong points."?
