County Jail for Murder of Hoff
Locking Jailer John Brady in the
cell which they vacated and using his
keys to open the two steel barred
doors between themselves and free
dom, two prisoners held for the fed
eral authorities escaped from the
Ramsey county jail at 7:30 P. M.
The missing men are Harold Wat
son, colored, 22 years old, held in the
jail since June 27, for action of the
federal grand jury in connection with
automobile thefts in Chicago and
Charles Bains, 35 years old, arrested
July 31 on a charge concerning gov
ernment checks and under observa
tion to determine his sanity.
Escape Well Planned.
The escape was made apparently
in acocrdance with a well thought
out plan, believed to have been per
fected by Watson, who is thought to
have persuaded Bains to join in
merely because the two were cell
Jailers Brady and Peter Leko were
on duty at the time. Leko was on
an upper floor when a telephone call
came for Watson. Against the es
tablished orders of the jail, Sheriff
John Wagener said, Brady alone took
Watson to the telephone from his
cell in tiey one, on the first floor.
The phone conversation, completed,
the jailer returned his prisoner to
the cell. When the cell door was un
locked, Bains, who had been waiting
just inside the door, leaped out and
the two prisoners grappled with
Brady, took his keys, locked him in
the cell and walked out of the jail.
Bains Murders the Driver of the Taxi
and Again Escapes.
Wednesday night Bains, who had
engaged a taxi driven by He'nry Hoff
man and Loyd Best to take him to
Three miles west of Red Wing,
Bains, according to the storv told
by Best, requested that the car be
stopped to allow him to get out
and stetch himself. He said one of
his legs had been twisted when the
automobile went over a rough stretch
of road. For more than half an
hour a stop was made at the road
side and when the car started, Bains
asked to be allowed to ride alone in
the tonneau of the machine. Refusal
lead to an argument, according to
Best, and it ended with Bains and
Best riding together in the rear seat,
after which Bains climbed into the
front seat with Hoffman, who was
Demand for Fare Evaded.
Reaching Red Wing, the trio
lunched at a restaurant, where a de
mand was made of the passenger for
his fare. Best and Hoffman did not
know the man was Bains at this
time. The passenger said he had no
money- and offered to give a prom
issory note for $30, when Best sug
gested taking him to the police sta
tion. Bains then agreed to go
"home" and get the money.
The two drivers, according to
Best's story, accompanied their man,
and when in front of Mrs. C. F. Hill's
residence, 951 Main street, Bains told
the two men to wait while he went in
to get the money.
Suspecting a ruse, Best and Hoff
man followed Bains to the back door
of the house. Further "stalling," ac
cording to Best, occurred. Best re
iterated his suggestion to take the
man to the police station. Hoffman
reached for Bains, when the latter,
according to' the story, drew a gun
and shot Hoffman through the stom
Collapses at Wheel.
Best said he ran but returned when
he saw Bains flee. Hoffman, with
Best's assistance, was able to reach
the automobile, where the wounded
man insisted on taking the wheel.
After driving about 100 feet, Hoff
man told his companion that he was
dying and collapsed at the wheel.
Leads Exciting Chase.
Capture of Bains came after an ex
citing man hunt through the hills,
ravines and woods surrounding Fron
tenac. He was seen in that vicinity
early Thursday and all through the
day, with the temperature about 90,
he led the possemen a desperate
Finally Bains was cornered in A
small wooded plot near the Fronte
nac station of the St. Paul road.
The possemen were preparing to rush
the woods when the fugitive appeared
and walked along the railroad tracks.
Three of the possemen, Clyde John
son, Raymond Allen and Frank Ol
son, all young lads of Red Wing, and
Detective James A. Mitchell, Jailers
J. A. Todd and Peter Leko of St.
Paul, commanded him to halt. Bains

by the posse, he surrendered. He
was marched to the station at From-,

of Goodhue county and Arthur E.
Arntson, county attorney, took charge
of him. Goodhue county authorities
decided to hold him for the killing of
