SAWED THROUGH BARS.
E$sape of Two Prisoners From the City Jail During the " Night. One Was in for Burglary and the Other Was a Tramp. They pawed Their Way Out and Lett 1 the Place by Way of the Dog Pound. When .ilor Purcell opened the big iron doors of the city prison ysesterday morning to let out thi "ohbai) gpg" for the work, I he remarked to Overseer Billy bSars: "You're a man a sbort. Guese you didn't bring Joe Davis back with you Saturday." "Oh, yes, I brought in eversbody I took out," replied I Hears. Thinking Davis might be concealed I somewhere about the cells, a search was I miade. Davis was not in the prison; neither was J. F. Rodgers, who had been awaiting r i preliminary examination on the charge of burglary. But away up on the south wail of the prison, near the Clore street end, an c open window and two severed and bent bars showed that the city was lucky to have anybody left in the jail at all. When the city jail was fixed up during the last administration it was thought to be absolute~g proof against escapee. A heavy iron barred door opens inwar& frodl the police quarters, and ia solid iron door opens outward. Both are secured by heavy looks. Even if a p:lmoner were able to pick or out the look of the inner door, he would still have the outer door to open. The windows were placed high up In the rear walls overlooking Clore, street, and one I more is on the south wall near the rear, and opens out into the wooden structure built for a dog pound. Horizontal bars protect these windows on the inside, and to prevent the prisoners' friends passing things to them, these is a heavy wire netting on the outside. The steel cages, in which are the cells, is located as far away from the walls as possible on all ii ,es, and out of reach of the windows all but one. That is the one that opens in to the dog pound on the south side. The achitect who designed the interior of the ; orison made one bad mistake. In the southwest corner of the room, high up, the water pipe enters. It is two inches in diameter. After running down some dis tance in the angle of the wall, it turns off and runs along the south wall. directly be neath the window opening into the dog pound, until it reaches a point opposite the end of the cage. There it again turns and runs across to the cage. For a sure-footed man it is no trick at all to walk across on this pipe from the cage to the wall. 'I he pipe stands out from the wall just far enough to afford a good footing, and to en able a man to get under the window on the south side, from which point it is easy to reach the sill. The following diagram shows the arrangement of the jail chamber, the steel cage and the iron water pipe so conveniently arranged for the escape of prisoners: G G hE B D O D B B A--, ntrance to prison from police quartera.

Rodgers was ar seted by Policeman Van asse on Friday night, the charge being burglary in entering the rooms of Louis Schott and William tiohott in the Novelty block and stealing two suits of clothes. Davis had been arrested some time before and was serving out a fine imposed for va grancy. Men cheared with offenses like that of Davis are not locked up in the sage usually, being left on the outside, where they roam around the prison chamber at will and sleep on cote on top the cage. When a ,uan is accused of a serious offense, such as that laid to Rodgers, he is not only kept in the cage, but is locked in one of the cells as well. This, by some oversight, was not done when Jailor Purcell locked up Sunday night, The alleged burglar was left outside all that day and what nart of the night he chose to remain. It is thought that some time during the day a friend on the ontasle may have passed him a fine steel saw; or it is possible he may have had one so well concealed that the po lice failed to find it when they sea hbed him after his arrest. As soon as nibht came Iodges no doubt stepped from the top of the cage on to the water pipeleading to the wall. uIn covering the distance from the cage to the wall he very likely had the aid of a helping hand from I)avis. Reoach ing the wall the burglar was- soon at the window, the sash pulled down from the top and affording him a good hand hold while he placed his feet on the window sill and with his other hand sawed through the bars. 'this part of the work was done as quickly and as quietly as possible. Two bare were sawed in half about the center of the window, and just half way up. The upper arts were bent inward to allow the passage of a man's body. The heavy wire netting outside was an easy matter. It is secured by bolts to the window frame. These bolts were sawed through and the netting pushed out. Rodgers and Davis then passed out through the opening and into the now racant dog pound. The door of this bulding is kept looked, and afraid to make too mush noise by breaking it open, the two men forced open the small window of the pound and were at liberty. Why the other prisoners who were in the chamber did not take advantage of the opportunity is only explained by the sup position that nons of those in a position to do so had serious enough charges hanging over them to make it worth taking the risk of being caught. Those who would have taken the risk, except todgers, were looked up in the cage and couldn't. The position of the window through which the escape waseffected, in relation to the entrance to the prison, is asuch that a man standing at the door conuld not easily see the prisoners at work in the corner be. yond the cage. Sergennt Callahan ha so casieo to open the prison doors about mid night ounday, but he could not see the men if they were at work at the time, and the chances wsrs weren't.

Among the eontributore to the fun and eoitement of "The Police Patrol" are two ~amone white horses. When they first prag ,into prominence they *ere con hoted with the Chicago police department, Irawing the patrol wagon for the Des plaines street station. On that fatal day In May when anarchy sought to rule the world, they, with the assistance of a few brave mep, were instrumental in saving the lives of some eight officers. When that arowd of excited and half-crazed foreigners gathered at Haymarket square and flaunted their flag of red, a detachment of police was sent from one of the stations to guard the unruay mob, and in onear of necessity compel pence. The blue coats found them ,elves completely hemmed in by a surging mob, to whom the eight of a policeman's star was like a reJ bandana swung in the face of an enraged bull. Some kind friends wn the outside, seeing the plight of the few policemen, rang in an alarm for the patrol, which sounded in the station where 'Jim and Frank" were doing service. The plucky animals fought their way through by biting and pawing, until the brave men were picked up and carried to a point of safety. It was from the action of the horees at this time and at the McCormick reaper works a little later, that these two intelligent animals gained the title-The White Patrol.

S RELEASED FROM JAIL, ohn Bryant Obtains His Liberty by a Writ of Habeas Corpus, LBt. Paul Officer Say He I Not the Man Wanted for Murder. Lnna Muller's fasi Against aully fluyek Is Afilrmed by the State Supreme Court. John Bryant, the colored barber who was trested July 8 by City Marshal Galvin as iieng the man wanted in St. Paul for mur ler, was released yesterday. His attorney, . It. Purcell, had Bryant brought before lndge Hunt, of the district court, on a writ if habeas corpus. 'heo petition for the writ says Bryant was arrested and confined n the city jail without complaint, chara ng him with any crime, or any warrant, .nd that no charge had been made against rim up to the time he applied for the writ. Jity Marshal Galvin was present with his irisoner yesterday afternoon. Judge Hunt isked the marshal by what authority be wsa holding Bryant. He replied that he sad a letter from the authorities at St. Paul. nfudge Hunt did not consider that this was eiflcient and ordered the discharge of Bryant. After this order from Judge Hunt, Ofooer Brown, of St. Paul, arrived in Helena, and ras given a glance at Bryant. He said the ran looked very much like Pickens, the it. Paul murderer, but it was not he. Bryant was given back all his papers, taken from him at the time of his arrest, and his matchel of clothing, in which, among other things, was a revolver. Mayor Curtin was present at the time, and Bryant asked per mission to carry a pistol, as he said he had letters to prove his life was in danger. He lid not produce the letters, but was given the desired permission. Bryant was very nervous yesterday and before being taken to court had a fit in his cell. Among the papers he had when arrested was a draft on New Ydrk for $800. He has also $6,500 on deposit in the First National bank. For the present Bryant has given up his lnten lion of going east. The murder for which he was arrested on auspicion occurred in the Metropolitan hotel at St. Paul last March. John Smith, the murdered man, and Dennis Pickens were waiters in the hotel and quarreled one morning in the kitchen. Pickens drew a razor and out Smith's throat from ear to sar. Pickens escaped. IT IS HcER PROPERTY. Anna htuller's Case Agalanst Sully Buyek is Affirmed. The supreme court handed down an opin ion yesterday confirming the judgment en tered by Judge Hunt of the district court in the case of Anna Muller against Sully Buyck. She sued Buyck to recover some property in Helena which she deeded to himn while intoxicated and despondent be cause he was going to leave her. Nine years prior to November, 1889, they lived to gether in New York. Chicago and Helena. Bnyck was supported by her except for a short time when be had a saloon in Chicaga from which nothing was realized. Her testimony in the court below showed that she deeded property in Helena to Bayok worth about $15,000 for $3,000, and that she gave him $1,800 to keep for her. In the fall of 1889 he beat her and she became de spondent and began to drink. She said she did not know the contents of the deed which she made about this time to Buyek. In his testimony Buyck said she had no reason to think that he would marry her, for he was already a married man. He claimed that the Iroperty was bought with his own money and that she agreed not to molest him if he would give her $3,000, and that the deed was accepted as a relinquish ment of all claims on him., Judge Hunt held that the deed was procdred by duress and fraud. This judgment is affirmed by the supreme court. Another decision was made in the cose of B. H. Kleinschlmidt against John McDer Imott, of Jefferson county, involving the ownership of live stock worth $3,3000. 'Ihe case was brought before the court to settle a matter of legal practice.
