CARROLL SECURES WORK
Reiterates His Charges Against
Albany- Penitentiary Officials.
Consumptives In Damp Colls and
Milk and Medicine Withheld.
Man Hung by Wrists.
James Carroll, the colored ex-convict of
the Albany penitentiary who made charges
against Superintendent Chester A. Dear
Btyne, as told iu the Evening Times of
Saturday, has secured a position in this
city, and gives indication of having re
formed. The commutation of sentence
made by the President called attention
to the worthy people interested in the
prisoner's behalf, and one of those who
asked for his release offered to give him
employment when be got out of prison.
Mr. Carroll asserted that he had Leen well
treated himself but he hoped something
could be done for the prisoners who had
not faicd so favorably.
"I began to serve a. ten years' sentence,"
said lie to a Times reporter yesterday,
"January 24. 1894. With the President's
commuting my sentence, and on account
of good behavior I actually served only
three years. I worked three months in a
shop and was then sent to the pesthouso
as a nurse. Superintendent Dearhtyne en
tered his office January 20. l&Do. Dr.
II. E. Mereness was the physician under
him, and licis a good man. Superintendent
Dearstyue. however, treated the prisoners
"When Dr. Mereness ordeied delicate
food for them Dearstyue would tear up
the orders. For instance, the doctor would
say that a man was sick, and that he
needed milk. He would write out an or
der to that effect and give it to a man
named Deruval. It was the latter's place
to carry it to the matron, but instead, he
would take It to the superintendent and
he would tear It up. Dr. Mereness told
mc that he could swear to forty-one dif
ferent orders that Dearstyue treated In
"The consumptives were put on the
top row of tiers in the prison and their
rooms were cold and damp. They were
not given enough cover and the cells
were full or vermin I have known Dr.
Mereness to order medicine that did not
come for three weeks. When a commis
sioner came there from the Department
or Justice In this city I know that the
superintendent let him go away with
only seeing a few people in the sick room.
A man by the name of West, from Wash
ington, had been suspended by the
wrists because he could not work. He
was too sick. A guard stood over him
when the commissioner made his visit
and told him that if he put his hands
outside the covers he would kill him
"I do not know what Dearbtyne's ob
ject is iu doing as he does, unless it is
mere cruelty I do not believe he makes
anything In 'money orf the rood and
medicine he rehires to let the prisoners
have, and it must be pure wickedness in
