His escape was dis- covered soon after, and the alarm given A thorough seari.u of tne grounds by the guards failed to re- veal the fugitive's whereabouts, and the Mounted Police were cailed and arc still hunting for him. Captain Birnie, head of the intern- ment camp, would, make no statement regarding the.incident.

All the German internes are kept in the central guard room and enclosure, seoarate from other .in- ternes. Full guards are placed oa tbis enclosure, it was deemed al- most impossible tor any break for liberty to be succeeafnl. This is the third escape from the camp, but tne other two In- ternes were caught shortly after their escape It is supposed the man. climbed the fence at a moment when the'guard's back was turned.
