Four Long-Termed Prisoners, Up

(Dy AMociated Prrss.)
RICHMOND. Va.. Jan. ll.-After
overpowering and tying hand and foot,
successively an armed guard, and arm
ed nlghtwatchman and a shop fore
man, four long-term convicts, serving
terms for forgery, murder and rob
bery, slid down on a rope from a
fourth ?tory window of the State pen
itentiary here tonight and after scal
ing a 30-foot wall, made a clean break
The men were H. L. Hamilton, sent
up for forgery, who had about seven
years yet to serve; Slier Atkins, for
second degree murder, with 10 years
yet to serve; Al Burton, second degree
murder, whose term would have ex
pired In 1932. and E. B. Hanley, rob
bery, who had five years yet to serve.
The escape was sensational and
evidences point to a carefully laid plan.
The men left behind them a signed
note, attesting a mutual agr?ment to
make a break for liberty as the only
recourse left to them to obtain jus
tice. Tho men possessed good voices
and sang regularly as the quartette In
the penitentiary choir. They were all

In a moment the men seised the guard,

unarmed. The binding and gagging of

three minutes and has was laid to rest

[at the preparation for escape with
helpless interest. The men patched to

of the bales of overall and shirt mater

support in the shop. Tfcen one after,
the other, they swung out of the win

hand, to the ground 68 feet below.
Before leaving the building they dis
robed, leaving their sprlped outer
garments behind them. They dressed
themselves In the shirts and overalls
which were scattered about In pro

The escape was discovered through
