Alfrod Offroe, Alias Alfred Graysoa,
In CHBtody for Bobbing Tolle's
Store at Cabin Orook.
Short Sketch of tho . Ex-Oonvict's
, Alfred Grayson has had examining trial
brfforo 'Squire Jacob Miller yesterday
.on the charge of robbing. a store on .Cabin
Creek owned by Mr. Tolle. County At
torney Charles D.,Newoll conducted the
prosecution, and the coart appointed L.
W. Golbraith to defend for the prisoner.
The evidenco disclosed that Mr. Tolle's
Store was broken into by some unknown
.parties in November, and sqmo goods
such as knifes, gloves, caps, pasts, etc,
carried away. It was also in evidence
that the prisoner since the robbery had
been disposing of articles of merchandise
similar to that which Mr. Tolle missed.
Some caps, gloves aad pants had by the
prisoner were produced, having-attached
o them, tho lamQ. price-mark-tag used by
Mr., Tolle. The prisoner, explains that
he bought the goods at thp;ralroxd cqm-
njissary, .-Tjje court thought, there were
reasonable grounds ferholdiag tho defen
dant over to await the .action of the next
grand jury, and fixed bis bail, at fOOQ in
default of which he ,was remanded back
to, the custbdy.ef Jailpr Fitzgerald. . .
Alfred Grayson has quite an (interest
ing history. To a reporter of the Bul
letin he talked very freely of his life and
career. - . ,
'I was born," said, he, .'lnKowan
CountytKentucky, in 1850. My boyhood
was spent in.Brown County, Ohio. When
tho war broke out I was a restless young
fellow, and so I ran, away from homo and
joined tho Union army in the 8eventh
Ohio Cavalry. I remained with my com
pany until 1864, when Captain Smith de
served the company at Taysville, Ten
nessee. I found the life of a soldier a
pretty hard one and deserted at tho samo I
timn mv Dnntain irrflw tirnd of the nomti'
of war, I spent that winter in the bar
racks at Camp Dennlson, Ohio. In the
spring I started out on an aimless tour,
and the following eight years I saw a
great deal of the world. I follpwed run
ning the river mostly, and led quite a
" In 1872 I came to Maysville and en
gagod myself as a farm hand to Mr.
Charles Dimmitt This was in the spring
of the year. That fall I attended the col
ored, fair at Washington and fell in with
some tqugh companions thievis and
gamblers. Some parties .robbed Mr., Bob
Hunter's store. I was arrested, haying
in my possession a pair ot boots that I
got by a trade. This and other circum
stances implicated me in the robbery, I
was innocent of the crim,o but was unable
to prove it satisfactorily. They had me
Indjcted and tried, for the offense, and. in
March, 187S, I was sentenced to four
years in the penitentiary. I was at the
!!pen!' butia.ahort. while when I, had. a
difficulty wi,th a, eoloreel convict by, tho
name of Tom Taylor, in fi,ve years, for.
horse-stealing. Taylor was a foremas,
and I had disobeyed an order of his tq
wash a bucket. He attempted, to punish
me with a whip., I resisted and, assaulted
him with a loom knife and axe. I was,
indicted and tried, for cutting with intent;
to kill, and got ona year for it; besides,
they gave me seventy-five or eighty lashes
on the- bare back, shaved my head and
made me carry a ball and chain for eteht
months, and locked me in my cell every
Sunday on bread and water. During the
week I was put at bard labor in the hemp
department. I thought I had been pun
ished much more severely than my of
fonsq warranted and I became stubborn
"In 1874 there was a colored prisoner
by. the name of Birdsony who had .some
spite, against mo and would- tell lies on
me to the guards to get me punished. , I
warned him to., let up, and told him I
would cut his head off the next time he
lied about me.. Ho did it again, when I
attacked him with a knife, stabbing him
nineteen times. He. got well, 'and the
courts gavo mp onq, inorp year.
I'ln 1876 I 'had a,, desperate quarrel
with a priBQner over a game of dice.- He
was a Mexican by tlo name of GunriUW
ano, and. had threatened to take, my
heart out on account of some enmity.
Ho called me a bo. of a b, h several
times, and assaulted mo with a . fitick
when I. I.unged at. him with . pocket
knjfe, inflicting w.ounds from which he
died a few days aftorwards. The Mexi
can on bis death-bod confessed-be was tp
b)ame and requested that I should not
b.o punished. .However, I was indicted
for murder, but through the efforts of
?irvIra?uln,iQl Frankfort, ray lawyer,
I was acquitted. I serredput njy six

HECHINGER & CO. -
$5 in money., The weather was bitter
cold and I hunted work in, vain. My
clothes were so thin I could not stand
the weather. I walked into, an otlite
while tho occupants were, absent and
took a heavy, suit of clpthfs... I, did not
know who the clpt ,ea .belonged to. I
needed them to . keep warm. It turned
out that tho clothes belonged to Mr. Ira
Julian, the lawyer who had befriended
me in the courts. It wits u mean thine
to take from my, own lawyer, bin I did
not know it at the time. For this offense
I was tried in March, 1871), on the cfian e
of grand larceny, and on account of my
previous convictions they made an ex
ample of me and gave me tho limit a
life sentence. I don't know why it is
I always play in such hard luck. I uu
derstand the law linger which I was tried
has been in the books for more than
twenty years, and yet my conviction was
tho first under that statute. At the same
term of court several others wero tried
who had previously been convicted as
many times as I had. and yet they were
only given a few years. When f went
back to the " pen " the fourth time I was
put in the hemp department. This is
the hardest work there Joe Bode, of
Maysville, was one of the foremen. I
whs under Bode und we never got along
well together. I always thought Bode
was too hard on mo. My work . was
more than I could do. I have known
prisoners in the hemp department to cut
off their fingers and sometimes a hand
to keep.fr.om doing the work reqniredit
was so laborious. You b.ad'tq do a cer
tain amount of work assigned you or be
punished. In November, 1881, Bode and
I had a quarrel. For this and other
causes. I was locked nip in an iron cage
and puk in chains., When I was. not in
the; cage I ,was chained, to thosflpprvl
was -forced to dress seventy-five pounds
o.f .h,epap a, day when twojmndred pounds
was the usual work a day for .three men.
DurinR the year 1881 1 got the reputation
of being a bad prisoner, and was so
known, and pointed out to legislators and
visitors; , . .
" In 1882 when Colonel Stone resigned
aa Warden, I was jreleased from my cage
and chains and made a good record from
then on. I think all my conduct and
trouble was not so much from fault on
my part as it was from the general faulty
managementnnd dogged supervision over
me, and the habit of appointing convicts
themselves as foremen. I have no malice
against the prison ofilcers, but there are
evils there that ought to be corrected.,
'Through the efforts of General Fay
ette Hewitt and other State officials I
was pardoned by Governor Buckner Oc
