The resolution passed by the board of

the sheriff to allow no more tobacco r
Barnes to be sent to the prieoners con
fined in the county jvl. lias tended to
make themsurley and disagreeable. They
were e;iven their supiM-r as usual last
evening by James Martin, who islook
ing'after them during I In llnessof Turn
key Wrigbt, who is 1 iid up with the
trip. Nothing unusual was noticed at
that time, but about ba f an bout before
locking up time the lights were suddenly
turned out. and a wild time ensued the
more unruly ones begin breaking the
tables ard everything taat could be de
molished. The lock wis broken on the
iron door of the "bull ptn" and locks on
cell doors were wrenched and twisttd.
Sheriff Gordon was cut of the city at
the time, atd Actirg Turn-ley Msslin
immediately ttltgrapbel police bead
quarters for assistance, snd Chief Muller,
accompanied by two oinc'ers responded
as quickly as pcs9 ble, S eriff Gurdrn
reaching home about the same time. The
trouble had already beei quieted, how
ever, by one of the prisoners, a lorg
ha'red cowboy nfcmid Clarence Eddy,
who in the midst of the excibmcnt tried
to light the gas which bad been extin
guished. But the hot w-ittr was turned
on htm by some of the wildest
ofihe crowd. This enraged him so that
he mounted a table, and s'riking a tragic
attitude, told the crowd of half crtzad
convicts that he would kill the first man
who dared to interfere, tnd then calmly
lighted the gas. The sh riff and officers
then went in and locked jp thcring lead
ers, and they are now be ng fed on bread
and water. The damage done will not
amount to more than $2r .
