PLOTS OF PRISONERS.
HOW THE CONVICTS Hi AUBURN PRISON
MANE A PLAN TO ESCAPE.
Bolts and bars and walls built to re
slat the teeth of time, are not always
sufficient to restrain the convicts in the
State prison at Auburn. Confinement
seems to sharpen the wits of the prison
ere, and not only - have they been,
known to devise suocessftil plans to es
cape, but to invent most ingenious , ap
pliances and machinery. .Old attaches'
.' of the prison could tell stories of the
.' convicts that would
- read Like fables, and yet be as true as
sacred writ. Every morning the con
tractor drives in through the north
gate, and receiving his load of three or
fonr barrels at the kitchen', drives out
again. A convict several years ago,
thOught he saw in the : ewill=barrel a
means of escape, and he proceeded to
put his idea into operation. He en
veloped his head in cloths and got into
a barrel of liquid swill. The gate-keep
er is provided with a long iron rod, and
is required . to probe or examine every
load, no matter_ what it may be, that
leaves the prison. When the wagon
reached the gate the keeper ran the rod
into the barrel in which the convict was
concealed. It struck an obstruction,
and he plunged it in again with con
siderable force. He was amazed to see
a filthy object emerge from the swill
and utter amuffied cry of pain. It. did
not take the keeper long, howeyer, to
determine that it was n convict attempt
ing to escape. Theclever plot of the
prisoner created a great deal' of com
ment at the time. A prisoner owe
disappeared, and no trace of him could
be found. The officers =searched for a
week without avail. Finally, after all
efforts had been given up. the keeper
of the tailor shop one day instructed
his men to remove the pieces of cloth,
of which there was a great quantity,
• from beneath the cutting-bench. The
bench was entirely closed, with the ex
xeption of a small aperture into , which
the odds and ends were thrown, and
while the pieciii were being taken out,
the missing convict was unearthed.
The man had been waiting for an op
portunity to get outside the walls, but
lie waited one day too many it proved.
He had teen fed regularly by other con
• victs, who brought him food in their
pockets from the mess-room.
Three or four years ago, when the
prison was crowded with 1,500 convicts,
'asreat many slept is a large! room in
the top of the main building, kno7n as
the 'old hospital' These men imagined
that liberty was within their reach ) and
they made -an attempt to effect j their
escape. They cut their way through
the wood-work to the roof, and only
the tin covering remained to 'be removed.
. The night was appointed for the. de
livery, but when the men put their
heads through the opening, they were
confrented with a row of revolvers in
the hands of officers. Some - oue had
revealed the scheme, and the author s
ities were forewarned. Had this plan
been successful, the population of the
prison would have been, decreased some
206. Five years ago, a convict employ
ed in the tool-shop, which is no longer
operated, made a bold venture. The
tools were placed in boxes some 31 feet
wide, and 20 inches deep. The man
attached cleats and a button to one of
the boards comprising i the cover in such
a way that he'could shut himself- in.
To conceal the deception, he drove
heads of nails into the board so that it
looked as if it was nailed down. The
contractors had another shop in what
1 is known as 'Hackey,' in the northwes
tern part of the city, whither all tools
were taken before being shipped. The
convict ensconced himself in his narrow,
quarters, and the box was loaded on n
wagon with a number of others. He
, waited until he thciught the prison had
been left behind, and then raised the
cover to survey his surroundings. He
was observed by the driver, a young
luau, who gave a frightened yell and
jumped from the wagon. A guard hap
pew& to be in a grocery store in front
of which the convict made his appear
ance, and he caught a glimpse of 'the
head in the box. The escaping
prsoner lebognized him, and leaping
from the.wagon, ran as fast as his legs
would carry him. The guard followed,
and, as'the fugitive would- not stop in
response to repeated commands, fired a
ball into his leg, which put an end to
Citizens are employed in the prison
shops-in numbers, and they pass in and
out without any questions being asked.
A convict once embraced the opportn
uity that this practice affords. He se
cured a pair of overalls and a blouse,
and, shouldering a vise, walked past
the guards. When he reached the
street he threw down the vise and made
for the country. Slipping out of the
ranks is one of the practices of convicts
as the preliminary step to an escape.
- One cold Winter's morning, while it
was still dark, two convicts left their
places in the line. They had previous
ly obtained a long piece of wire, and.
attacticing a hook to one end, they,
tore tip their bed-clothing, and wound
it tightly about it. This - made a stiff
rope, and, reaching it up, they caught
. the book on the bars of the window in
~: the story above. They climbed up
from window to window. until they
reached the roof, from which they ex
_ pected to descend to a low side wall and
drop to the ground. Their absence had
been discovered, however, and just as
they were descending they were de
tected by the officers who were looking
for them. The escape of 'By' Day was
planned. He feigned sickness, and was
left in his cell. When the keeper shook
the cell-door at night, Day did rot res
pond. Instead of compelling the man
to answer, as he should have done. be
looked through the • grated-door, and
saw a form lying in bed with a news
paper over the head. He thought Day
was sleeping, and supposed the paper
was to prevent his being disturbed by
flies. The next morning a dummy
stuffed with straw was found in Day's
cot, but 'By' . had disappeared. He had
released himself from; his cell With a
false key, and, getting noon the roof,
had gone to the ground. He was after
ward ree.,aptnied. The 'wheel-house' is
the place where Dan Noble, Dan Kelly,
and the rest of the famous gang made
their egress. -It is where the' water
from the Owasco River enters the prison
to supply power.
A convict will endure., the greatest
suffering and privation to secure his
liberty. A man from Jeffersdn county,
crowded under a floor and hid in a pit
partly filled with Water. There he lay,
wet to the skin, during one freezing
cold day, and at night his hopes were
blasted by the appearance of officers
with lanterns. One prisotier bid
himself in the top of a large pigeon
house, but his place of concealthent was
discovered before he could scale the
walls under cover of darkness. It is,
necessary to watch thepen on the up.
peritiere of both wings very closely.
The viol. of the main building has_ sp-
perently. been the most popular avenue
of escape ever since the prison 'was
built. From it the north wall is nanny
reached by taking the rope from the
flag staff, and the passage from that
point to the ground is an easy one. The
halyards have been frequently cut
from the pole. If a prisoner is mii!ting,
the officers at once proceed to the fo;of,
and the chances are good. that he : will
be found lying in , the gutter or behind
a chimney waiting for an opportunity
to descend. It would be vain to at
tempt to say how many convicts Nape
beenpaught on the roof, but the num
bers is certainly very large.
• ..If an the tools and appliances used by
prisoners in attempting or accomplith
ing escapes had been saved a museum
might be established. How the con
victs obtain these tools is a question
easily answered. They make them.
Instruments weighing as much as 50
pounds have been made under the very
eyes of the officers, and they were none
the wiser for it. If a man is employed
about iron-working machinery, he will
find time to manufacture jacks, jimmies,
levers, bars, . keys, and other imple
ments. Very often these tools
are the finest specimens of work
manship, and any artisan might be
proud to own them as his handiwork.
Complete burglars kits, have been
mannlacturedin the pri'son and smug-
gledimtside to do service in 'cracking'
banks. Not long ago an attempt - was
made by a 'long-terin man' to escape in
broad daylight. He made a 'jack'.and
a 'jimmy,' and with them hoped toile.
,cure bjs liberty. But for the breaking
of th'e jimmy he would undonbtedly
Lave 'been successful. Ho concealed
his fools in his bed, and committed
come offense so as to be locked in on
the day that he expected to set himself
free. While the gdard was in another
part of the Wing, he sprung the bolt in
the door of his cell with the jimmy, and
stepped into the corridor. His next
move as to make an attack on the bars
of a w'ndow. The man set to work and
the barks began to spread, but his haste
canoed the failure of his plan. A Bud
den wrench caused the bolt to snap iu
'twain. , The noise attracted the guard,
who 'inspected something wrong, and
ran in the tlir•ection of the sound. The
convict could not reach his cell quickly
enough to avoid detection, and he paid
the penalty of his effort -to 'beat' the
One generous-hearted convict' prc- .
posed to liberate half the pnsonerp in
the institution. He procured apiece of

plannea,to spring the jever of his cell
with a jimmy,' thus releasing hiMself,
and to unlock as many doors as he
could with the key before he was dis
covered. Then he anticipated leading
the men against the guards and fight-
big his way to libertY. The key was
found in the possession of the sanguine
prisoner before he had an opportunity
to use it. In the office of 'the Agent
and Warden are two jimmies remark
able for their fine construction.' ,The
handles, which can be 'detached, are
turned in! fanciful shape, and - to any
burglar the tools would he a rare prize.
Desperate means are no infrequently
resorted to in attempting escape.

prison, and has been found to be the
work of convicts.. Thera is a fire bri
gade composed of picked men, who are
supposed to be trustworthy; but it has!
been shown that they coLnot be
lied upon. At nearly every fire inside i
the walls the prisoners have cut the,
hose and done everything in their powei
to advance the ilamei; in the vain hope
that the whole institution would burn
down. Impossible stories are, told of
escapes. It used to be . I related thatca

the convicts term a prisoner'who learns
of plans to escape and reveals them. If

bought sor &or 10 cents a dozen, and by holding them can be sold for-an advance of from one hun

FRUITS may be permitted to ripen In their native cirmate, and can be transported to any_
