John Bojle O'Reilly'a Escape from West
Tttcnly-two years ngo John Uoylo
O'Hoilly enlisted in tho l'rinco of
Wnles' rogiinent, tint Tenth Hussars.
Ho was then about 19 years old. A
well educated boy, of anient tempera
ment, nnd sincerely devoted to the
Irish cause, he did what ho could iu
tho regiment to promote the rcvoln
tionnry movement that bconn in 1803.
His connection with the Fenian insur
rectionists was discovered, ho was ar
rested, tried, nnd convicted of high
treason, nnd lie was sentenced in July,
18GC, to imprisonment for life. This
sentence was afterward commuted to
penal Bervitudo for twenty years.
O'Reilly tpctit about a year in the Kn-
f lish prisons, working in chain gangs,
n November, 1807, ho was transport
ed to 'West Austral! a iu the convict
ship IIougoumont,crowded with felons.
For about thirteen months he worked
at road making near Uimbury in the
penal colony, associating with convicts
and ticket of lenvo men. Various ao
counts of the manner of his escapo in
February, 18G9 havo been printed.
Tho truo story was not known until
Mr. O'Reilly had been in this country
for ten years or more, when limo had
removed nil dancer of inculpating cer
tain friends who lisked much in assist
ing him to freedom.
In the list of absconders printed
early in 1870 in tho official Police Ga-
sctle ot west Australia there appeared
this paragraph :
"2 John B. O'Reilly. Registered
number, v,aid. imperial convict ; ar
rived in Colony per convict ship Ilon
goutnont in 18G8 ; sentenced to twen
ty years Oth July 180G. Description
Healthy appearance ; present age, 2,i
ycais j S feet 7 inches high, black
hair, brown eyes, oval visage, dark
complexion ; an Irishman. Abscon
ded from Convict Road party,
Uunbury, on tho 18th of February,
Tho man to whom O'Reilly owed
his liberty was a good Catholic piieet,
tho Rev. Patiick AlcCobe, "whoso par
ish extended over hundred of miles of
bush, and whose only panshoners were
convicts and licket-oMeavo men." Ho
was a scholar and gentleman of rare
accomplishments, "almost nlways in
tho saddle, riding alono from camp to
camp, and sleeping in his blanket tin
der the trees at night." "He was an
ideal disciple of Christ,"says "O'Reilly,
"who labored only for his Master. He
was the best influence, indeed, in ray
lime ho was tho only good influence
on tho convicts in the whole district of
Uunbury." We continue the quota
tion from Mr. O'Reilly's own narra
tive: "One day this remarkable man rode
to my hut, and wo walked altogether
into the bush. 1 hail then mado nil
my plans for escape, and I freely told
him iny intention. 'It's an excellent
way to commit suicide,' he said ; and
ho would not speak of it any more. As
ho was leaving me, however, he leaned
from tho saddle and said : "Don't think
of that again. Let mo think out a
plan for you. You'll hear from mo be
foro long.'
"He went away and I waited weeks
and months and never heard a word.
I was not compelled to woik with tho
criminal gang on tho roads, but had
charge of their stores, and carried thu
warder's weekly repoit to tho Danbury
depot. Finally, one day on my way
will) this report, I came to a plain
known as tho Race Course. As I
crossed it I heard a coo cc or bush cry,
and saw a man coming toward me with
a friendly smile. 'My name is Ma
guire,' he said ; 'I am a friend of Fath
er Mao's, and he's been speaking about
yon.' Seeing my hesitation, he drew
a card from his wallet, on which Father
McCabo had written a few words to
me. Then I trusted him.''
This was in December, 1808. Some
American whalers were expected to
touch at Uunbury for water. After
two months of suspense, news came to
O'Reilly of the arrival of the barks.
Maguiio announced that ho had ar
ranged with the Captain of one of tho'
whalers, the Vigilant of New Dedford,
lo cruise for two or threo days jtul
outside of Australian waters, and take
tlio fugitive on board from a small
boat. On tho night of February 18th
O'Reilly waited until the warder had
visited his hut, put on a pair of free
man s Hioes, as thu trackers cou.d
easily discern tho mark of a regula
tion convict's boot, and struck into tho
bush. .
About 1 1 o'clock I came to an old
convict station, and Iny down behind
an old gum treo at tlio roadside, in
half an hour or so two men lodo up,
thoy passed on ; they wero farmers,
probably, or may be a patrol of mount
ed police. Shortly after, I heard horses
coming at a sharp trot. They halted
near mo and 1 heard "l'atnck s Uay'
whistled clear and low. In an instant
I was with tiiem Maguiro and anoth
er friend M . Tuey lead a spare
horse. I mounted at once, and with
out a word we struck into tho bush nt
a gallop. For hourd wo rode on in si
Thoy reached tho shore, found a
small boat ready for them, and pulled
about forty miles tlnngtno ooast to tho
point whero they expected to meet tho
Now Bedford whaler. No ono had
thought to bring food or watcr,and for
twenty-four hours or more tho suiter
ings of tho patty wero intense. At 1
o'clock on the third day thev mado out
the Vigilant, under full sail, steering
north. They pulled toward her willi
light hearts."
Sho was steoring straight toward in,
so wo stopped pulling and waited for
her. liut wo wero bound to bo woful
ly disappointed. When shq was with
in two mles of our boat alio 'fell off
several points, as if to avoid us. Every
ono stared in amazement, Maguire say
ing that Captain Baker had given his
word ns a man, and ho oould not bu
liove, that ho would break it. Oue of
thu mon stood up in tho boat and gave
a loud hail that must havo been heard
on board, No answer, Again lie hail
ed, and wo all joined in tho shout. No
answer. It only seemed that the Vi
gilant turned to point further from us.
At last she came ahroa&t of our boat.
Sho was then about threo miles distant.
Maguiro hoisted a white shirt on ttio
end of an oar, aud wo shouted again,
Hut the Vigilant passed, on, mid left
our boat to its fato.
They landed on tbo boaoh, nnd O'
Reilly s fiiends went bank to Uunbury,
promising tojeturn in a week, nnd
leaving him hiding in a secluded sand
valley close to tho shore. Ho climbed
a treo nnd caught an opossum, nnd
nlso captured a fow kangaroo rats.
Thoso animals supplied him with food.
After threo days O'Reilly, still believ
ing that Capt. Baker must bo cruisiug
for him somcwhero off tho coast, re
solved to make nnolhcr attempt to
board tho A'haler. The rowboat was
too heavy for him to pull alone. Six
or seven miles further up tho beach ha
found an old dory otil, launched it,
mado it watertight by plugging tho
cracks with paper bark, and put to sea
Heforo night I had passed tho head
land, aud was on thu Indian Ocean. I
knew there was a current going north
ward. Next morning I gavo up pull
ing, nnd sat down to watch and wait.
It was very hot. The sun flamed
above, nnd tho reflection from tho wa
ter was scorching. That day, toward
noon, I saw a sail. It wns tho Vigilent
thero was no other vessel there. Sho
drew near to me, so that I heard
voices on deck. I Baw the men on tho
lookout, but they did not see me at
least Capt. Baker says so. Sho sailed
away again, and was out of sight bo
foie night. Tlio diw and cool air re
freshed me, and I resolved to pull back
to shore and wait for Maguiro's re
turm I pulled all night, off and on,
and in the morning saw tho sand
hills at tho headland of Gcographo
After that second disappointment
O'Reilly left his sand valley no more.
Ho slept most of tho time for fivo days,
and then Maguiro came back with good
news that Father McCabe had arrang
ed for O'Reilly's nassapo on another
New Bedford whaler, tho Gazelle,
Capt. Gilford. But Maguire also
brought an unwelcomo traveling com
panion, ono Martin Bowman, a ticket-of-lcave
man, and one of tho worst
characters of the colony. Bowman had
discovered tho means of O'Rollly's es
cape, and had threatened to put the
police on tho track unless he was taken
off, too.
That nighi wo slept little, some ono
always keeping an eye on Bowmau.
We wero up at daybreak, and soon
after wo wero afloat. Wo pulled
straight toward tho headland, as Capt.
Gilford had instructed. By noon wo
saw tho two whaleships coming along
with a fine breeze. Toward evening
wo heard a hail, and somebody shouted
my name, and cried out, "Como on
board!'' Wo were all overjoyed. We
pulled alongside, and I was helped out
of thu boat by tho strong arms of Hen
ry Hathaway, tho third male. Capt.
Gifford made me welcome, and gavo
mo a place in the cabin. Martin Bow
man, the escaped criminal was sent for
ward among the crew.
Six months afterward, when the Ga
zello touched at Rederique, an English
island iu the Indian Ocean,, the Gover
nor enmo aboard searching for "an es
caped convict from Australia, a black
haired man.1' I was standing near Mr.
Ilussoy, the mate, when tho Governor
mado the demand. Mr. Hussey said
that no such person was on board. Tho
Governor answered that a man had es
caped on the Gazelle. Mr. Ilussoy
feared that he might scizo the ship, so
ho said that a man of that description,
who had como on board off the coast
of Australia, might be tho person. Ho
called Bon man, who every ono on
board detested, and ho was put in irons
nnd taken ashore. Wo knew that he
would tell tho whole story (tho wonder
is that ho did not do it then ; but ho
wished to make tefms for his own ro
lease.) That night tho officers of tho
Gazelle threw overboard tho grind
stone, with my hat, whilo I lay hid in
the Captain's cabin. A cry of "Man
overboard !" was raised, a boat lower
ed, and the hat picke'd up. There was
on board somo English ex-convicts who
had been shipped in Anstralia,and theso
only waited to get mo re-taken. But
one of them utterly deceived by tho
officers' strategy, declared that ho saw
me sink whero my hat wns picked up.
When the Governor camo on board
next day to demand his prisoner the
flag was nt half mast, and tho officers
sorrowfully told him that tho man he
probably wanted had jumped overboard
in tho night and was drowned. Ilia
policemen went nmong the crew and
learned tho same news. Two days la
ter tho Gazelle sailed from Rodcrique,
and 1 camo on deck, much to tho
amazement of the crow.
That ended Mr. O'Reillv's adven
tures. Off tho Capo of Good IIppo
Cantain Gifford handed liim ttiirt.pon
sovereigns, all tho money ho bad, and
transferred him to the Amorican shin
Sapphire. This ship took him to Liv
erpool, where ho was provided with a
secure hiding place until a Jierth was
secured tor him on tho Batli ship Bom
bay, which landed him in Philadelphia
on November 23d, 1808, nino months
after he mado his first break for tho
Australian bush, AT Y. Sun.

New York Oraphlc
The luxury oi an American shave is
a thing that Englishmen hear a good
deal about and which they aro gener
ally nnxious to oxperionco whon thoy
nrrivo on our shores. After having
tried it they say tho luxury is a delu
sion and a snare. Every Englishman
shaves himself and that is why travel
ing Americans look in vain for an ar
tisiio capillary abridger in London. The
American asserts that nowhere hut in
his native land are truo artists with the
razor to bo found.
A shavo every morning is as much a
part of tho averago Englishman' toilet
as is a balh, or, ns ho calls it, a
"bawtb." An Amorican shrinks from
shaving himself, nnd somehow consi.
ders it a thing beneath his dignity,
when ho oan hiro a man to do it. Ho
performs a far moro nrduous labor,
however, when ho blackens his own
boots. To' an Englishman nothing is
more insulting than a suggestion that
ho blackens his boots. A man may bo
a blackguard, a drunkard, may not pay
his debts, may live bv his wits or tho
waut of snmo other man's wits, and ao
cording to thb English notion mav yot
bo a "gentleman i ( but let it ono'o bo
known that ho bluokeiis his own boots
and ho is expelled from all decent so

On Saturday night, Library Hall was

Onofn's Awful Orimc
An Italian named Onbfri, was ar
raigned before tho Coroner in Phila
delphia last week on a chnrgo of bent
ing his step-daughter to death. Onofrf
married a woman named Cook who
had threo children, nnd wh6 was a (hi.
pczo performer in Foropnugh's circus,
nnd during her nbsonco tho father
would ptiti'iBh the ohildrcri. At tho
Coroner's inquest tho room was filled
and the audienco composed principally
of 111611 and mang of them looked as
though tlleb had murder in their hearts
during the recital of tho story of tlio
child's death. At ono time they crowd
ed close around the prisoner, but Wero
pushed back by tho officers. Ono man
leaned over and said to tho cowering
Italian in a fierce whisper ;
"I would liko to havo your throat be
tween my hands for about three min
utes." Other men expressed dosires to
"mash him in the face" and to "cut his
heart out," and one grizzly bearded old
fellow who stobd near the door, said :
"I would liko lo havo him west of
tho Missouri River' witli a twenty foot
lariat on my saddle-bow' nnd I would
give him a liltlo tight-ropo perform
nnco thnt would surptiso him and his
circus fiiends."
Tho officers present were too much
in sympathy witli theso sentiments to
bo ovcrzealotis In stopping tho remarks
that floated out every few mtnutcs from
tho crowd.
The prisoner is a Utile, wiry man
with a swarthy complexion and black
hair and a littlo black moustache. His
faco bears a rather pleasant expression,
although on ono or two occasions dur
ing tho inquost his eyes showed an
ugly gleam. Ho sat close to the wall
and throughout tho inquiry either
shielded his faco with his hat or his
hands. Tho evidence brought out dur
ing thu inquest revealed even moro hor
riblo cruelties than was at first suspect
ed. Coroner's Clerk John S. Donal,
who had investigated tho murder lold
how bo had elicited admissions from.
Onofri that ho had beaten the, dead
child with a shovel, strap and knotted
rope and that ho had seen tho'body of
tho child covered with bruises and
"Ho told me," said tlio clerk, "that
he had broken tho shovel over the child's

pounded tho Diblo before him with a
tightly clenched fist. I say you, did."
At another interruption tho Clerk

himself and bowing apologetically to
Deputy Coroner Ashbridgo resumed
his testimony. Mrs. L. C. Wilson, who
lives next door to Onofri, said sho of
ten heard outcries from the children as
though, thoy wero being beaten.
Lieutenant Edward Lyons, of the
Twenty-third polico district testified
that ho had made au investigation, of
the caso and that tho prisoner had ad
mitted to him that he had "corrected"
tho child and that whila ,80, doing- he
had probably killed'her.- -
"Ho said," continued tho officer,
'that ho had whipped tho girl with a
strap and beaten her with n shovel, but
ho declared that ho didn't know sho
was sick. The oldest girl told mo that
the step-father beat, all of tho children
nearly overy day and that a short timo
ago ho threw several bricks at her."
Coroner's Physician Forraad testified
that the autopsy showed that .death
was duo lo violence and the emaciated
appearance of;the child also showed .ev
idences of starvation. Tho body was
covered with cuts and bruises and
there was a clot of blood on tho brain.
Death was caused by shook and bleed'
ing. JL his concluded tho testimony at
tho Coronor's office, nnd tho Italian was
asked if ho had anything to say.
"I only wanted to say," he renlled,
"that I didn't mean to kill the girl, but
I had to correct her becauso sho was
Under cro.-H-e.vamination ho admit
ted having beaten her with a shovel on
tho day of her death. Ho, also said
that ho had tied tho Jittlo brother of
tho girl, up by, tho thumbs to "correct
him for stealing."
Doth.nro terrlblv bruised and thn
hoy's conditition is considered critical.
1 ho, physicians think it is probable
that tho boy will die, in which caso
Onofri will havo to answer for a dou
ble murder. The boy's testimony
could not be taken on account of his
coudition, but the girl, who is twelvo
years old, told the story of tho crimo in
a pretty simple, childish way that pro
duced moro visible effect on tho jury
than any of. the preceding testimony.
"Papa bfgan beating Lottie on Mon
day morning," sho said, "becauso sho
was disobedient. lie first hit her with
tho strap, then tho rope, then tho
broomstick nnd then the shovel. Then
ho mado her go up stairs on her knpes.
When sho couldn't climb above ' tho
first story ho ran up after her and
struck her and mado her go on up.
Then sho lay on tho bed anil moaued
this way and tho littlo witness mil
itated the cries of a person iu nain
with startling accuracy,
"Ho called her," sho went on. "when
it was dinner time, but sho diin't come,
nnd then ho called her again at supper
time. Sho didn't come atrain and ho
went tip stairs and whipped her around
tho hallway. Then ho picked her up
nnd threw her on the bed and struck
her on both sides of tlio face. AVhcu
bho moaned ho beat her nirain aud
when sho wouldn't stop, becauso sho
couldn't, I guess, lie throw tho clothes
over her and lay down on her. Then
she stopped crying and lay very quiet,
aim uo sent mo lor tho doctor.
During the recital of tho murder sho
begged several times to seo her dead
Bister. She expressed much lovo for
her motlur and great abhorrence of
her step father. When tho child was
dismissed tho jury arrived at a verdict
immediately, in which thoy found that
"tho child, Lottie Cook, camo to her
doatli from shook, hemorrhage aud
bleeding of wounds received at the
hands of her step-father, Achillo Quof
ri, and recommended that tho District
Attorney bo enjoined to bring tho caso
to a speedy trial.

Stanton,'s Surrender,
A well-dressed gentlemanly-looking
young man about half past ton o'clocli
Thursday morning of Inst week pro-
sonted himself to tho mayor of Phila
delphia, saying : 'You aro tho officer
who oiicreu a rewnru lor my arrest, i
upposo vou arc tho proper person tor
mo to surrender to." Ho was Daniel
E. Stanton, the man who on October
ICth shot bis frior.d, Fredoriok P.
Nash, from which ho died tbroo days
later. Chief Kolloy, of tho detectivo
department, was at onco sent for and
istnnton taken into custody. Tho sto
ry of tho shooting, from tho statements
of Nash, is as follows : Doth young
men had been schoolmates at tho Mys
tic Bridge Institute, near Stoningtou,
Conn. Nash was poor, but tho par
ents Of Slanton wero well-to-do peo
ple, and ho was always well supplied
with money. On leaving tho institu
tion at Mystic Bridge, Nash wont to
somo relative at Tourla, Mexico, but
soon became tired of tho country, ho
said, and camo back to the United
States, working his way as a deck
hand on board a schooner. Ho met
his friend Stanton in Now York. Tho
lattcr's father had died nnd left him
considerable money, with whloh ho in
tended to havo a good time. Ho pro
posed coming to Philadelphia and Nash
agreed, his expenses being defrayed by
Stanton. Arriving in tho city, they
scoured a room at Guy's hotel,
corner of Seventh and Chestnut streets.
On the morning of October IGth they
hired a carriage and were driven
throngh Fairmount Park, taking sup
per nt tho Rivcrsido mansion ' on tho
Schuylkill river, in tho evening. Later
tho sairio evening thoy boarded a train
on'tho Philadelphia and Reading rail
road, having first secured tickets for
Now York. When tho' train reached
the Sixteenth street station Nash ex
pressed a desiro for a drink, saying
that ho was chilly, and a drink of somo
liquor would warm him up. Ho got
up from his scat and left the car, lol-
lowcd by Stanton, who was angry be
causo his friend persisted in getting off
tuo car.
Shortly after 10 o'clock that night
Nash' was found lying across tbo pas-
cngcr railway car track on Broad
street near' tho Reading railroad track.
tic said Stanton Had become enraged
at him for leaving tho train, nnd had
fired threo Bhots at him, two of which
took effect. Ono of them entered tho
right hip, penetrating tho bladder, and
the other passed through tho lungs. Ho
ilicd three days later without having
made any further statement in regard
to how tho shooting occurred.
lUtortB wero mado to discover tho
wherabouts of Stanton, but without
success. Nothing was beard of Stan
ton except that bo had fled from the
country and was probably in Soutii
Ahierica. AVhen ho loft the city ho
was very boyish in appearanco and had
a smooth shaven face. When ho sur-
endcred himself bo had a full beard
and wore a pair of goggles. A small
leather satchel hung at bis back sus
pended by a strap ovor his .boulder in
tourist style. .Tho conversation bo
tween himself and tho mayor was very
short, Stanton saying that ho had sav
ed the authorities considerable trouble
by surrendering himself and hoped
that tho mayor would seo that he was
treated fairly.
'Wo would have captured you sooner
or later,' remarked Mayor Smith: when
Stanton paused.
"indeed yon would not, returned
tho other. "I arrived in New York on
Sunday, and smco then I have passed a
number of my most intimalo friends,
nnd not one of them know me. This
