Devffis Island
French Government Wants AmericanCrook who Makes Uet-Away
From Penal Settlement
London,    June    i6.—The.    prisoner  dead body, .supposed- to bt thatA, of   of his revolver.
s-jgtainst whom extradition proceeding.*'
arc being taken hy the French government' and who appeared at Hew
street   police   court , last   week is
watched ..day and night. If he is really thefanions Edward Guerriu, there
is no doubt that he is one of the
most dangerous criminals' alive. . So
far he has not admitted he is Human, although■ the . police are (juinj
confident of liis identity.
Giierrlnls 'life"story is" remarkable.
After serving several'sentences of •imprisonment,he was.convicted of blowing up with dynamite the strong
room of the American express company , in .Paris, and was sent ■ to
serve a life sentence to Devil's island1
tbe desolate and pestilent place near'
Cayenne where; Dreyfus was confined.
The story of his escape as told to
an old confederate reads, like '- the
adventures of a hero of a boy's ,bpok
of adventure.-Already, if we are to
believe his own story,-'. he' was planning to escape when*on the outward
voyage to Cayenne. His yrst move tt>
wards . regaining his- liberty was , to
get .on friendly* terms with -a warders'1
wife, a matter which ht complacent-
■ ly observes was not very difficult, the
fact being that he is a remarkably
handsome man. Through her he obtained money from friends in Chicago, wh'erisA'he had spent a good
many years of his life, arid presentr
lv Ue contrived by means of the
same, friendly agency to 1>e ordered'
.with two other prisoners, from his
cell near the.military headquarters to
a spot at the-extreme end of the island. Soon, after-arrival here        the
the prisoner, was found on the island and was identified by the author
ities as that of Guerrin.. The funeral
took place,' a wooden board -with
Guerrin's- namt on it 'was "put oyer
the grave and the name of Guerrin
was expunged from the records ' of
the  convict  settlement.
Ilut first of all he had to effect his
escape to the mainland, ia task of ex
ti-aoi-dinury" ;*i.-ril and dilliculty. The
Hi rec uieii had food, water aad supplies'- and money, while Guerriu had'
a revolvtr. With some rough tools,
which' they hud also brought''with
lliem, the confederates, workiyig nighti
and day, made a sort of boat by
scooping out the trunk of a fallen
tree,as well > as paddles.  "
When their dugout 'was ready they
eiiVlrarked oil*: night nnd "set out 'in
tlie direction of. Dutch Guiana. Dutch
Guiana was a long way off, but the
men did not dare laud at any place
'within. 200 miles of the. place of
captivity. They took it in turns,, to
do the' paddling and  to sleep..
Their Giiertvn noticed'that his two
coiiipp-nions would whisper toj^'tlner'i
when they thought he was asleep,
and he also noticed that they were
quite willing to paddle ' while *. he
rested. He kept his,cars open and
heard thorn planning to=inurder. him
and rob him of his money. Guerrin
lay still in the bottom of tlu* vessel
gripping his revolver, and when hifj
companions crept toward liim, with
knives'in tlu-ir hands he pointed the
muzzle.at them. The men were alarm
ed and were ready, to promise anything if he; would uot shoot: He
simply 'ordered  them  to go on  pad
three men escaped into a swamp, not   dlinpr while lie sat in the stern of the
For three,days and nights this con
tinjiJtU, if' the convicts own statement cau be credited, until at .last
they 'landed, half 'dead from fatigue
and loss of rest and sleep, Gne'rr.n
immediately left the two others, tak
ing with him all he could -lay his
hands on, and leaving them exhausted in the bottom of the boat. "
At length free, Guerrin started to
.tramping northward, but how long
the journey lasted he had no idea,
for in the course of- it he lost all
conntof time. He was captured by n
tribe of Indians but at the md o(
four days ' he"succeedcd in making his
escape.' Another day and night of
wandering follpwcd, ,and then he at
last found himself in. Parniaiibo,
Dutch Guiana, iu such a dreadful
state that'he describes vhimself as
having been a bag of Jicines, rotten,
with fever. There he managed, to -V-uli
sist fbr a^time and taking a ship at
Georgetown, to New York, arrived in
tlie latter city without a penny in
his pocket.; '  „    , ,
Afterwards in : Chicago -he talked
freely with,his old associates on tlie
subject of the extraordinary adven-
tires and he ridiculed tlte notion that
the French -government would ever at
tempt'to secure his extradition.
"When you're dead on their.books"
he said, "yon arc dead all over, and
they are too polite, to think of extraditing dead men." Recent developments have shown that' Giierrin was
mistaken, although it should prove
after all that that the English police
have been at fault'in identiviiij-- him
with the man in custody here. Douibl
less the mystery "of the man's identity, will speedily be cleared up with
the aid ol the French svsleinAot an-

to come gives color to the story that

about the  l3(*i  ijoiii'  off  her feed  an"
not doing her usual good   work.

However'that 1'may be there wasn't
much improvement in lite cuttin' up
of thc-136;,, It- was getting so that
when the 135 would pass-the-136 the
my  engine  would  slide   and   slip  her

"One slippery morning I was just
