Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY. DECEMBER 17i 1914 THE I.ETHBRID6E HERALD PAGE FIVE (Bi'-TiKhB in London Chron- '.'In His summer of W2 Dr. (Jravcs, alter trliil on'd conviction at billn- liiirah Hiijli''Court, wan sentenced u> 'Slahtocn'' mouths' imprisonment lor spyiiiK at Itbsyth. Under the recent Oincial Secrets Act lie inifcht have been awarded sevi-ii penal ser- vitude. The punishment, was linht, and tlie spy and other persons were Biirprlsed at it. About a year1 later, whim he was supposed to lie serving his lime in Scotland, Ur. Graves liciy announced his presence in Now Questions were asked in Parlia- and then the subject was abruptly and mysteriously dropped. At the end of his Sec- rets of the Herman War Oflice" (is- sued by Mr. Werner Laurie, 2s. cot) 0 raves bestows on us the ex- planation, aiid curious enough it is. Let it suflice at the moment to .ob- serve -that' nothing should nowadays astonish us, not even internation- al trallie in spies, and spying. Ihe providence of nations aiding us, a cleaner time may be coming AN ACCREDITED SPY -H the date his imprisonment in Scotland Dr. Oravcs had iwcn for j some years an accredited spy 01 the German Government. He tells us can-: didly in what circumstances he joined this perilous, exciting and loathsome! he declares, he has! now definitely abandoned. Of repute i able (rernian family, he was sons arc not clear) pressed out of his destined groove in life, took to globe-, trotting, .saw something pi. the Boer 'War a's an amateur medico, and re-; turned to his own country to enlist amonu; the spies of the-Kaiser. Ho. was once led- out of n ceil to be shot, and leaves his reader to surmise why I the signal was .not given to the fir- ing party. Earlier than this, of'course, the ex-spy has instructed us in the work-( ing o'i the several branches of the Spy Department. I attempted a few days ago to account for the working of'the system in France. Dr. Graves shows us its organization in Berlin. Til; heads of all departments are Ger- man officers, recruited from the old feudal aristocracy, "loyal a de- grcc to the throne. They find it in-1 compatible, notwithstanding their loyalty, to soil their hands with' some of the work connected with all Government duties, especially those of lar Secret Service. Though plan- i work thcj never execute ft io active or ccmmissionod offic- er dpGS Secret Service work. In a business of this kind ethics are naturally and necessarily scraprcd. 'We cannot "fiord to he squeamish, was olio K the first things said to Graves by Captain von Tappkcn, of KoenigcrgraUerstrasse 70. "The in- terests: at are too vast to let personal ethical questions stand in tue.'ua> What would be required of you in the first instance is to gain for us information such as we seek.
