HIS PRISONER
STAID BY HIM
A Condemned Man With
a Drunken Keeper
Behaved Well.
C. E. Mast and Wee Tung's
Remarkable Journey to
San Quentin.
Sheriff*-- <~ffi< > '* Attache Suspended Tor
w Month— The Chinese In "Hoo
doo Cell."
C. B. Mast, a keeper In the Sheriff's
ofno\ looked upon the Tine when It
vas carmiro in the ouo last Brlday,
and in consequence has been "laid off"
for a week. Ordinarily not much at
tention would have been paid to so
common an occurrence, but on this
particular occasion Mast was under
the influence while taktnjc a Chinese
under sentence of death by hanging to
San Quentin and ran grave risks of the
escape Of his char.cc.
Mast was s^nt t>> San Quentin with
Wee Tung:, the Chinese who murdered
his uncle because he "talkee too
muchee." in his care, on Friday morn
inp. On his way from the Sheriff's of
flcp to the County Jail he m"t a friend
and the two had several drinks. The
liquor had taken no perceptible c-ffect
when he reached th° jail, otherwise
Chief Jailer Sattler would not have in
trusted the condemned Chinese to his
custody. But when the keeper and the
condemned man got aboard the ferry
boat the fact that Mast had been
drinking too much was clearly in evi
dence.
It is asserted that Mast went to sleep
on the train and left the Chinese to
amuse himself as best he might, and
that at Green Brae station he was
awakened by ML Herzoer. a San Rafael
merchant. Anyway, the sight of a
drunken man taking a prisoner to the
State Prison, handcuffed though he
was, attracted considerable attention
and a deal of unfavorable comment.
Warden Hale happened to be on the
same boat and train that conveyed
Mast and Wee Tung to their destina
tion, and kept an eye on their actions.
As soon ns he reached Pan Quentin he
immediate ly ti lephoned Sheriff Whelan
that Mast was intoxicated, but that the
prisoner had been safely jailed. When
Mast came back to make his report he
for a month.
Deputy Sheriff Clack stated last
x that Mast has the reputation
ng a sober, reliable man, and that
he himself believed the keeper would
not have drunk anything at all if he
had not met a particular friend whom
he had not seen for a long time. This,
st, la what the suspended keeper
told ("'lack. Mast also denied that he
had gone to sleep on the train.
Tung was placed in the "hoodoo cell"
in Murderers' Row, and will expiate his
crime on the same gallows as did Dur
rant. on March 8. It is said that
every man confined in the "hoodoo cell"
has met his death on the gallows — there
being not a single rase to be quoted
where the courts or the Governor have
ped in to interfere with the ukase
of the law. p

The first brace were loosed after the
elusive hare shortly after 1 p. m. The
rain was descending in solid columns

velvet. But there was no lack of en
thusiasm. Crowded beneath the sh>i

present gave vent to their opinions and
backed them with a vivacity that no
rain could dampen. With two excep
