bad no access to tbe pay car and that

Yesterday morning, four Mexicans

of them were fined $3 and costs, one

Executive Committee Decides
to Carry on Work This
"Always go while the goin Is good,"
aald Big Boy, a negro who had been
sentenced to do, $50 worth of work for
the city, when a favorable opportunity
presented itself this morning. And he
sure did go. A telephone call was re
ceived by Sergeant Arthur Kinsley
this morning about 10 o'clock from C.
C. Church, superintendent of the city
chain gang, that the negro had de
parted for points unknown, taking one
of the frenchlest little leaves imagin
able. Thus far, he is at large. It is
the first escape of a prisoner from the
rock crushing crew since the institu
tion of the gang several months ago.
In Tact, no other attempts at escape
have been made. It Is more than
likely that the negro will exert more
effort in staying away than will the
officers in endeavoring to bring him
back, though neighboring cities have
been notified to watch for the dinge.
RETS 23 DAYS.
About 10 days ago the negro was ar
rested and sentenced for disorderly
conduct. Hia fine was $50 and that
meant that he must serve 23 days,
provided he didn't get away before
the sentence expired. He served 10
days at the labor of crushing rock at
! Sears. His escape cut the chain gang
down to seven men and woe betide the
next prisoner who is eligible to work
with the gang.
