News from the West Coast of Africa states that the King of Benin has given himself up to the British authorities. ALLEGED GAOL SCANDAL.-A serious breach of prison regulations is alleged to have taken place at Exeter Gaol, and two warders are said to be implicated. It appears that communica- tions by letter have been passing between a wealthy convict and his wife for several months. Something aroused the suspicion of the Governor (Major Matheson), who took steps to discover the parties to the irregu- larities. The assistance of the authorities at Scotland Yard was enlisted, with the result that letters, purporting to be written by the prisoner's wife, were sent to both warders, requesting them to meet her at the railway station at Exeter by a certain train. One of the warders obtained leave. The second did not apply, but arranged for a female relative to accompany his comrade. The couple met the appointed train, the prisoner's supposed wife duly appeared, and a conversation ensued relative to certain blank cheques. Ultimately a detective conveyed the man and woman to the police head-quarters. The warders were interrogated by the Governor of the prison, and the result is that both have been suspended and fined. The woman, who was on a holiday from Cornwall, was released.
