rather a sportive nature, were In the
room ol the former, the sportive acntlo
man, wishing to "have a little fun,"
poked his revolver out the window and
discharging it Jumped away exclaiming,
Some one is shooting at us." After the

ABOUT THE MATTER.
Vesterday a man about live feet seven
Inches, slight mustachu and gotce, walk
ed Into the Ilui.i.KTiN office holdinga copy
of the St. Louis Keening IUmblknn in his
hand, dated 3d hut. He addressed u
and pointed to an article headed:

said, "and add some things McCurty
didn't know."
We looked over the article. It was a
statement made by John C. MeCarty,
convicted of grand larceny in this city In
1872, and sent to Jollet lor three years.
He had jtht got out, six mouths in ad
vance ol time under the good behavior
rule, and thought it his duty to tell what
he knew of the abuses of the Illinois
penitentiary.
HIE WILLIAMS CASK.
He says that Williams, who dial in the
penitentiary last January, was showered
by Sleeper, the deputy warden, until ho
was insensible. Ju?t then Hall, dep
uty warden, going into tho room, ordered
lilin to dreii. He could not, when Hall
ordered liiiu dou-ed again, lie was
doii'cd, and died.
thk m'c.uitv cask.
About three mouth betoru tills there
was another murderous outrage commit
ted upon a convict named James F. Me
Carty, of Indiana. He was bathed.
About two hundred pounds of ice were
broken and put Into a tub. Water wa
then poured In, aud the ice stirred until
the water was as cold :i3 ice could make
It. McCurty was stripped, and four ne
groes plunged him into the ice water one
minute, lifted him out a moment, aud
plunged him back a minute and a half.
On belnir inc-il out he fell dead.
THK CASK Ol" WILLIAM Ji:ri'i:l!iO.Y.
William Jefferson was a black man.
He wa sick. Being taken Irom the sick
room to the hospital, he was ordered
to move on. lie icplted that hu was too
sick. The guai d thoreimon struck lilin
on the head with a .-lull and killed him.
A CASK OP KXTISK.MK II VliHAIlI TV
was that of Charles Davis, a small, deli
cate man, weighing not over 112 or 115
pounds, with hands not larger than those
of aehild. He was put at hard labor, en
tirely dlsproportioned to III? capacity,
and not being able to perform It, was put
into "Hie hole" three nights hi succes
sion. Those who are put Into the hole
have neither supi cr nor breakfast, din
ner being their solo meal during the 21
hours. Davis was rendered still less
able to do the work assigned from
this treatment, and during the morn
ing after ids third night in the
Hole, became completely exhausted. He
begged hard to be assigned work that he
could do and expressed his willingness to
do everything he could, but declared the
impossibility of his performing the task
assigned him. They paid no heed to his
entreaties, but put liiiu in tho hole again,
strapped a gunny-bag in the manner of a
knapsack to his shoulders, with 12 tire
brick in It and strung his arms up to a
ring-bolt and kept him in that torturing
position for six hours. They then let
him down, took out some of tho bricks
and put in a chunk of Iron weighing 10
pounds and strung him up for four hours
longer. The writhing of the poor vic
tim under tills prolonged torture caused
tho straps to cut through Ids coat, vest
aud shirt and into hi flesh, until he waas
ALL PUirmti WITH IIL001),
and apparently dead. Ho was found In
that condition at thu end ot the four
hours, during which time he had been
left entirely alone. They then cut him
down hi a hurry and took him to tho
hospital. The doctor examined hliu and
said ho could not live, but alter lying
in tho hospital thrcu mouths ho was
able to walk about feebly and do little
ehwres.but was never ablo to labor again,
and probably never will be.
We read all this and said:
"Well, what Is your 11:11110 and slale
luenff" "My name Is James Fort. I was sent
upon the same ehargo with MeCarty
from this city. 1 will make uo statement
,of my Innocence or guilt. I was convicted
on the evidence ot two prominent officers
of the court.
"I had a better ehauco to tlud out tho
rascalities carried 011 lu the prison than
uny other convict, I occupying tho hum-
dry, having charge of tho washing tie -
partmcnt under Mr. Frank Murray. Tho
laundry is divided from the place of pun-
Ishment by a hall about twenty feet long
nnd six feet wide. A door shuts off the
laundry from Iho hall, which Is called
, .11 ...1.1. 1. . ...
Court Solitary. In this court convicts aru 1
pretcndedly tried, beforo torture, by
Judge Hall. I could often see und hear
what was going on In there.
The commissioners and Warden say,
publicly, and from fhu pulpit in tho
ohnpcl, that no convict over struck unless
In self defense, They believe this, no
doubt, because they are very Ignorant of
ihenctunl condition of fho primn, Hall
helngfho managing man, the closer of the
eyes of the board and warden, governor
and people. But the fact Is, convicts are
struck with clubs, punched nnd kicked
every day, by George MoOee, in tho west
wing, aud by young Hall, the Judge's
brother, lu shoo shop seven. Several
others indulge In this clubbing, punching
and kicking cxcrchc.
A few weeks before I left tho prison on
the 17th of August, Deputy Warden Hall
was sick and off duty. C'npt. Sleeper
was n his position. Between ten and
twelve o'clock lu tho day, convict 0157
O'Neal I think Is his name sent from
Chicago lu the month ot July Iat, was
taken Into the Solitary. He was charged
with "talking." Sleeper got to iihuIng
hliu with his tongue considerably. The
convict replied, In ellccf, he was doing
the best he could and could do no better.
Sleeper up with a club and struck him
over the head three or four times. Von
could hear the blows distinctly sixty feet
off. Young Hall hnd charge temporarily
of the Solitary that day. Now comes In
tho Joke of how much tho warden nnd
coiumN-dowr knew about prison mat
ter'. The warden, and Commissioner
Taylor, I think I only aw his back
were coming Irom the warden house
down to the Solitary when this clubbing
business was going on. Sleeper got wind
or their coming, went out and headed oil'
the warden and his companion, and at.
traded their nlteiitlon to another part of
the prison while Hall put the convict hi
what Is called the Hole and wiped up the
blood. Then Capt. Sleeper escorted the
warden aud Ids companion to the Soli
tary, whero all was serene. Tho next
day I got OI57's shirt to wash, and it was
literally soaked with blood.
Convict John Diillle-SlXlS, I think
was working In tho foundry or butt shop.
Complained ol being sick and unable
to work. 1'eported to a doctor. Got a
little medicine, aud was sent back to
work. After beiug lu the shop a shrt
time, complained that he was unable to
do duty. Capt. Hall sent him to the
Solitary. He tvent up to see the doctor
next morning. While he was nt the hos
pital he got a chance to communicate a
few lines to me. He said: "I am siek.
I know 1 cannot live. Hall is killing me
by inches. They persist hi working inc.
and will give mo no treatment. If I
should die, please write or go aud tell
my father about it when you get out."'
Dullle was put back into the Solitary
and kept there four or live days. The
doctor visited him each morning in the
Solitary. Finally he got so bad, he was
holped Irom the Solitary to the hospital,
and died there of pneumonia I think
that Is what the doctor called It on the
10th day of April last. I don't believe
his disease was pneumonia. 1 think it
was a severe attack of Hall, a disease that
has been fatal to many a poor convict.
In the morning alter Dutllc's death, his
stripped clothes were sent down to me tor
washing. In the pocket of the pants I
found a.i undated note addressed to me,
containing tho following :
"Hall's treatment Is klllin": me, 1 will
surely die. Don't fall to see and tell my
father of my fate. Jon.v Ditfik."
When I reached the prNon Mayhow
was Deputy Warden, He put me in the
eonvlet bakery. 1 remained there until
Mayhew was succeeded by Hall. Hall
came to mo and said : '
"1 want you to go over Into tin' War
den's kitchen."
Butler, a negro Irom ('alt o, who killed
old man Price, had charge f U kitchen.
Ho Is a man nobody cancel aloii" with
outside or inside. I told Hall I would
preter to remain where I was; that I was
a baker; ami furthermore that I knew
Butler, and that nobody could get along
with him. Hall replied':
"ou must go where you are told with
out any back talk."
1 went over to the Warden house with
Hull, who took inc down to the kitchen,
aud said to Butler :
"Butler here's a man to help you."
Butler said :
"Don't want him. I know him. Can't
get along with that man."
Hall said:
"Volt don't want to get along."
1 begged to get oft, but Hull was per
emptory nnd I was left with Butler.
Well, matters went ou until one morn
ing something fell witli mo on top. But
ler was the .something. The guard came
along, but 1 knew nothing, and Butler
knew nothing. Several times aflersome
thing fell with mo ou top, and Butler
was always that something; hut neither
would tell, aud I didn't losu my time.
I was driven to tills. Finally I was taken
outand put to carrying water to tho top
gallery. For an old man, wounded
by bayonet and bullet, tho work was too
hard. I complained aud was beaten and
kicked. While hero 1 was pulled ubout,
beaten and kicked almost every day.
Finally I got Into the wash house, aud
had a very good tiino after that. I got
out witli all my good behavior marks,
unit will never be back thero again.
Aud thus Fort van on telling us many
things wo cannot remember.
