Bloomsburg was the scene of a "jail delivery" Saturday in which one of the prisoners that escaped was Joseph Kelly of Danville.

Kelly, it will be recalled, along with John James, was arrested on October ist charged with the lar ceny of a cellar furnace from the Fowler property on First street. Kelly, who has not yet had his trial, along with another prisoner, who was serving time for ' nonpay ment of costs, on Saturday morn ing were put to work cleaning out the corridor in the Bloomsburg jail. For convenience the warden left one of the gates or doors open; the other gate, it appears, was also open although the person in charge thought it was closed. The situa tion was well understood by the two prisoners, who bided their time and when the guards were all ab sent they quietly walked out. They were sooii missed, but the escaped prisoners made good use of the interval and succeeded m get ting away. Sunday afternoon Kelly gav himself up to Sheriff F.nt at the jail. lie claims to have been Danville since his escape. Sunda he landed in Bloomsburg on board the x o'clock Danville & Blooms burg trolley, alighting at Railroad street, and making his way to the jail by unfrequented streets. He said he didn't want any officer to eet the trlorv for his arrest that he was practically certain of bein recaptured and thought it would be far better with him if he snrren dered. The other man is still at large His foolishness in making a break for liberty is understood when it Is known that he was being tieid tor the pavment of a Cue and would have been released in a few day: tinder the insolvency act.
