Attempt at Jail Iellvery.
A desperate attempt at delivery
was made by some of the 22 prison
ers in the county jail at Davenport,
last Saturday night. A few of them
had secured a steel saw and they had
been working away for several hours
before being discovered by the turn
key. They had succeeded in sawing
through two of the iron bars in one
of the windows on the son lb side,
and a few hours more would proba
bly have set them free. As soon as
the work was discovered the prison
ers were locked in their cells and
kept there all day Sunday. The
"Several attempts have been made
by criminals to cut their way out of
the old jail in the past few years, but
they have been unsuccessful ones.
The county is badly in need of a new
building. Something should be done
to make imprisonment in the present
jail better than it is.'1
