I THE CONVICTS SUFFER
I
Revolting Stories of Cruelty in the
Chester Prison
Two Men Mutilated Themselves to
Avoid Punishment for Inability
to Perform Work
I ONE PRISON OFFICIAL RESIGNS
Chester III Oct 7 Reagdon
and O Rose convicts who cut aft
their fingers In order to avoid work
declare they were forced to do tasks
entirely beyond their strength and
that rather than attempt to perform
them any longer or endure punishment
for refusing to do so they decided to
out off three fingers from the right
hand of each
If the stories told by the men be
true a system of most Inhuman cru
elty has prevailed at the Chester pon
itentiary R J Wilson of Mailssa
111 who was keeper over the gang of
which the two men were memborsbas
resigned his place rather than be a
party to the cruelties which he de
clares the prison officials Inflicted on
the men as punishment
Iteagdon and Rose were employed
Iin the foundry Both are frail men
afflicted with chronic ailments which
I threaten to end their imprisonment
before their terms expire The work
they were compelled to do taxed their
endurance to the utmost and when
they tout to the cells at night they
were too exhausted to eat or rest
I
After suffering for months the two
men procured a rusty hatchet and ac
complished the mutilation before they
were discovered
They were given surgical attention
I by the prison physician and It is said
that immediately afterward they
were
l I
compelled to stand on a block In thoI I
prison yard the remainder of the day
