*'(MLI> BILL" MINE? OUT AGAIN.
Ho MukcN Good His Boust That Ho
Would Yet (Jet Away.
Mllledgevllle, Ga., Juno 28.-"Old
lilli" Miner, bandit and train robber,
nerving a twenty-year sentence In the
Georgia penitentiary, to-day made
good his threat of a few months ago
when ho declared he would again
gain his freedom.
When guards at the prison farm
made their rounds this morning they j
discovered that Miner wa? gone, and
had taken with him W. J. Widen-,
camp, a "lifer" from Tattnall county,
and W. M. Wiggins, sent up from the
same county for one year for carry- ?
lng a pistol.
Since he made his sensational es
cape last fall, and laughed at the .
prison authorities when recaptured,
saying that it would not bc long until
ho was gone again, Miner has been ,
under double guard by day. and
chained and shackled to his bed and
room by night.
('hains There? Miner Gone.
ThlB morning tho chains and
shackles were found locked to his
bed and tho iron rings in tho walls !
of tho room, but the old man had
gone. Ile sawed the Irons away, and .
then cut. the bars of the window,
crawled out and dropped from the .
second story. Tho other prisoners
who escaped were not manacled.
Miner ls 5 feet 8 Vi inches tall,
weighs 130 pounds, fair complexion,
Slender, light chestnut hair. light
blue eyes and sandy moustache. Ile
ls 70 years old.
Wldencamp ls :ir> years old. Ile
was sent up February IO 11.
Wiggins is .17 and was sent up
April 1 0, l!l 1 2. He has been at the
cami? less than ten weeks.
Minor was a Western gold and
silver miner before he turned train
robber. Thal accounts for his now
being called "?Miner."
Miner was sent up for holding np a
Southern railway train near Gaines-j
ville early last year. Ills capture fol- j
lowed a long search. At that time
he declared he had been an inmate of I
Iwenl.v-seven different prisons.
First Escape hast Kali.
Miner's Hist escape on October lil.!
last year, was also spectacular. At
that time he choked a guard into in
sensibility, while he told a compan
ion to holtl a gun at lils bead, took ?
Die guard's pistol and escaped.
With him then escaped his com-'
panton, Tom Moore, a life prisoner,
and John Watts, of Pulaski county,
also a Ufo man, convicted of killing ,
a man and his wife.
Miner had advistd tho prison au
thorities that he would remain here
In Mllledgevllle al the state farm a
while for rest. About ,'l o'clock In the
morning Night Guard Hloodworth
was overpowered hy Miner, who
ehoked him and vowed he would kill
him If he resisted. Ho told him that
Moore had a pistol at his head. The
men then took the guard's guns and
escaped, well armed.

Would Have Escaped Easily.
Had "Old Hill" Minor been twenty
years younger he would have escaped
successfully from tho Slate tarin at
Mllledgevllle a year or moro ago. and
would hitve been in hiding in some
foreign clime by now. is the belief of
Jailer J. M. Sutiles, ol' the Fulton
county prison.
Mr. Sutiles, accompanied by \V. H.
Ilaygood, also connected with the
Tower, visited the Stale farm last
Friday, and were Introduced i<> thc
stage coach and nain bandit who
lobbed an express train in Georgia.
We were introduced to Miner by
Warden Williams," said Mr. Sutiles,
' and I found liini the most agreeable
prisoner I've ever met. Ile told US
many exciting stories of his career
during tho frontier days oui West,
and declared that 'his day was not
done even yet.'
"Ho was chained and shackled,
:.:?(! it looked impossible for any man
lo escape from tho bonds which held
him. I asked Warden Williams,
laughingly, If he really believed "Old
Milli' would attempt lo escape.
" I told HUI a few days ago thal If
he'd give mo his word thal he would
not try lo escape i'd tako those
shackles off him,' tho warden said.
Miner replied thal ho would escape
upon tlie first opportunity.
If I were twenty years younger
I wouldn't bave stayed in this place
i wo nights,' Miner said, and don'i
you believe I'm going lo promise any
one not to beal it tho first chance I
get,'
And I wasn't a blt surprised,"
concluded .lailer Sutton, "when l
learned that 'Old Mill' had busied
loose. "

Onco Moro Sentenced.
Samuel Gompers, Frank Morrison
and John Mitchell, labor leaders,
have again been held guilty of con
tempt of court by tho Supreme Court
of the District of Columbia, In con
nection with the court'? injunction
in the Hucks Stove and Hange boy
cott case. They will attempt to ap
peal again to the Supreme Court of
the United States, which reversed the
former conviction.
Bondsmen were on hand and at
torneys for the labor mon gave no
tice of an Intention to file an appeal
to have the Supreme Court review
tho judgment.
In Its previous review of tho caso
tho Supreme Court reversed the con
viction on the ground that the con
tempt proceedings had been improp
erly Instituted. New proceedings
were at once begun. The sentences
under tho first conviction wore:
Gompers, ono year; Morrison, nine

FOUND IN DYING CONDITION.
laurens County Man Probably Vic
tim of Overdose of Laudanum.
Renno, Juno 26.-Posey Hollings
worth was found to bo in a dying
condition early Monday morning
with two laudanum bottles by his
side, one of them having been emp
tied. For several weeks Mr. Hol
lingsworth had been drinking very
heavily, it is said, and for the past
few days had been visiting bia cou
sin, li. F. Copeland. About the mid
dle of the nifc t Mr. Copeland went
to Mr. Hollingsworth'^ room to see
If there was anything that he wanted,
and found that he was in a critical
condition, hardly able to catch his
breath. Medical attention was sum
moned at once and every effort pos
sible made to revive the patient, but
all was in vain. Without regaining
consciousness, except for a few min
utes, he died in convulsions early in
the morning.
Tho common belief ls that he took
tho dose of laudanum, hoping to
quiet his nerves and to give him some
sleep, but through mistake Look an
overdose. Some hold to the idea
that his Intention was to end his life.
The doctors are of the opinion that
tho alcohol and whiskey are more di
rectly the cause of his death than the
dose of laudanum.

An Arro of Irish Potatoes.

The Irish potato ls an exceedingly
profitable crop In the Southeast, and
when grown in connection with other
crops on the same land will make tho
largest net returns.
Tho following account from a
South Carolina larmer gives tho re
sults from corn, beans and potatoes
on one acre. This acre, lt must lie
confessed, was run more as a demon
stration exhibit than anything else,
but it indicates tho possibilities with
general faming in the Southeast:
"1 broke my land from 12 to l t
Inches deep In the spring. I then
harrowed to a flue mulch. I bogan

HULL DOOS ATTACKED CHILD.
Curly Haired Vagabond Had Narrow
Cscupe from Death.
(Greenville News, 27th.)
Frank Killian, a curly haired lit
tle urchin, twelve years old, but ex
tremely small for bia age. was set
upon by three ferocious bull dogs at j
2.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon in
the yard of C. E. Cooke, 105 West
Washington street, and but for the
heroism cf Mr;;. Cooke, In throwing
herself upon the boy's body and
shielding his face and throat from
the snapping fangs of the animals,
would undoubtedly have been killed.
Dr. Anthony White was called to
attend the wounded child, and he
bandaged some twelve or fifteen ugly
gashes in the little fellow's arms,
legs and thighs. Mrs. Cooko pur
chased the boy a new suit of clothes
-for the dogs left but little of those
he wore-called a hack and sent him
to his home at the Woodside mill vil
lage. According to latest reports tho
child was resting well.
A representative of the News was I
near the scene of the incident when i
it occurred and secured the facts rel- j
ative to the matter from Mrs. Cooke. I
She and a friend wore seated on the I
rear porch of the Cooke home when
they noticed a small boy open the !
hack fence gate and proceed toward
the house. The child crossed tho
yard without the three dogs, which
were lying close to Mrs. Cooko, tak
ing any notice of him. As bo was
within about two steps of the door
steps of the rear porch, however, the
three dogs sprang at him quick as a
(lash and hogan gnashing his body
with their fangs.
Mrs. Cooko rushed into the yard
and attempted to heat the dogs away
from the child, but they were not to
be cowered. When she saw that she
was helpless to rescue tho hoy she
threw herself bodily upon him and
hore him to the ground. The little
fellow is so small Mrs. Cooke's body
protected him well from tho dogs.
She took particular pains, however,!
to cover the child's head and throat, j
for she realized that should ono of !
the dogs close his jaws upon his nock
il would practically moan his death, j
Mrs. Cooke called to her friend to
pull the dogs off. but this lady could
do but little with the animals.
About that time some passersby
wore called into tho yard, and one of I
the men succeeded in twisting one of
tho dogs loose. The animal slipped :
his collar over his betid, however, and
renewed the attack. Mrs. Cooke's ,
garments were considerably torn In :
the melee, but she was not bitten.
After so long a while the dogs were
gotten loose from the child and the
little fellow rushed over to a drug
store. Dr. Anthony White was call
ed and dressed something like fif
teen wounds lu tho child's body.
Some of the wounds were very severe,
the Mesh being lacerated as with a
knife. Some of tho gashes were as
much as an Inch or an Inch and a half
long and very deep.
Mrs. Cooke stated that she keeps
the doss as ti protection, as Mr.

Washington Post Springs Hensation
in Mutter of Political Possibilities.
The Washington Post of June 27th
carried an interesting bit of informa
tion gathered by a staff correspond
ent, in which it Is stated that if Wil
son ls nominated by the Democrats
there will be no third party ticket
headed by Theodore Roosevelt.
"Should Wilson securo the nomi
nation," ^ayp thc Popt, "thc conven
tion decided upon at Chicago last
week, when it meets, will not name
Roosevelt, but Wilson.
According to the Washington pa
per, this message was delivorred to
William J. Bryan In Baltimore by
Francis J. Heney, of California, and
Charles R, Crane, of Illinois.
Its ostensible purpose ls clear-to
unite advanced progressives of both
parties and Insure beyond doubt the
defeat of President William Howard
Taft.
When tho bolting convetnlon ad
journed in Chicago lt was announced
that there was a desire to await the
action of the assembly In Baltimore,
the explanation being given that per
haps there would something occur
that would obviate the necessity for
the August meeting.
"Apparently," says the Post, "the
possible success of Governor Wilson
or another radical was tho thing
which the projectors and promoters
of tho Chicago affair had in mind.
"As far as can be ascertained, Mr.
Bryan bas not yet made up an opin
ion of this remarkable proposition,
the intelligence concerning which has
been carefully guarded as the treas
ure of a king.
"The fact is, the thing ls as dan
gerous as it ls tempting.
"Roosevelt's self-effacement can
only he taken to mean tho gratifica
tion of his consequent power to de
feat his successor in tho White
House and thereby clear the way for
his own return to power in 1 it 1 (I.
Tho proclaimed purpose of every
Democratic leader In tills assemblage
ls lo rid American politics of both
Taft and Roosevelt. The question
then presents Itself to tho party whe
ther it shall harken to the defeated
candidate ol' the Chicago convention
and shape Its policies and Its nomi
nation so as to secure his support."

VAUGHN SAWS WAY TO LIBERTY
Charged WUK Heinous Climes, a Fu
gitive-Hivuks Greenville Jail.
(News and Courier Special.)?
Grenville, S. C., June 26.-T. U.
Vaughn, former superintendent of
tho Odd Fellows' Orphan Home, lo
cated near Greenville, and a prisoner
in the county Jail since May 31,
charged with the triple crime of
"rape, living in adultery and procur
ing an abortion," tho alleged victim
being an orphan girl under his care,
sawed his way to liberty early to
day, and to-night flees before the
pursuing arm of the law, with the
odds greatly in his favor.
At 2 o'clock this morning Jailer
Phillips was aroused by a negro wo
man prisoner, who was confined In a
cell on the second floor, above
Vaughn's cell, telling him that 3ome
one was escaping from below.
Before tho jailer could reach
Vaughn's cell, the bird had flown.
The alarm was quickly spread and a
determined, but unsuccessful search
has been made throughout the day
for the fleeing prisoner.
It. ls practically certain that
Vaughn was aided by one or more
persona from the outside, and it. ts
said that Jailer Phillips rushed out
into the yard In time to see two
j men go over the jail yard fence.
The prisoner made his escape by
I severing a section of one of the wln
I dow bars with a hack saw. A short
distance from the point where he
? tumbled over the jail yard fence he
stumbled, and on the spot was found
the saw frame, pieces of the blade,
the prisoner's hat and a letter ad
dressed to him. The hole through
which the man went measured
twelve by seven Incites and only one
har was sawed in twain.
Bible Found in Cell.
In the vacant cell to-day was seen
the section of tito bar the man had
sawed out. lt had been wrapped tn
cloths to deaden the rasping sound
ol' the hindi saw. On the floor of the
cell lay the prisoner's thumbed Bible,
a copy of Whittler's poems and a
copy of "Pilgrim's Progress."
Some rather ugly looking evidence
of carelessness on the part of some
body, and which throws suspicion on
the man's brother, In assisting
Vaughn lo escape, has been brought
j to light to-day. It is reliably stated
i that the man's brother purchased the
hack saw and three blades from a
local hardware concern a week ago
to-day, and Chief of Police Holcombe,
who learned of this purchase at that
lime, stated to-day that, he at once
1 not Hied the deputy sheriff and the
jailer to be on the alert, as Vaughn's
brother had that, day purchased a
hack saw and blades.
Mortgaged Home.
The fugitive ls evidently well sup
I plied with money, as the records in
the olllce of the register of niesne
