bolder in Septtimber, planning to dyna?
mite railways aid buildings, besides '
assisting persons of military age to
escape from Belgium to France. Among
those arrested ?re four women, the |
principal charge against them being
that they were endangering the safety
of the German army.
"The espionage system reported to
have been discoveied in France is al?
leged to have htm managed by the
arils of a French officer. It ?B charged
that she receiv.'d her instructions di?
rect from the French military authori?
ties. Two other women are also under
arrest, and, accorii.ng to Berlin, the ex?
tent to which the system of espionage
is organized ii indicated by tat fact
