Yesterday Charles Gibsen and ea

their escape. About i o'clock in the af
ternoon, while services were being held,
Underkccper Mnrr passed the cell (Ne 11
en the lower tier) occupied by the men.
He heard a thumping noise and he listened
for a time. He noticed that when
ever the organ played the noise
was louder. Suspecting that something
was wrong he called Keeper Weise ; the
two then went into the cell and made an
examination of it. The cell is an iron
clad and they found that the prisoners had
cut a hole through the iron, in the south
eastern corner of the cell, large enough
for a man te crawl through. They had
also taken out two layers of the brick wall
and had placed the bricks under
the bed. If they had worked a short time
longer they would have had the wall cut
through and would have been able te
reach the cellar, from which they could
easily have escaped. The prisoners are
both cigarmakcrs and work at their trade
in the prison. The only tools feuud upon
them were their cigar knives, with which
they cut the iron. Underkecpcr Mnrr
says as he passed the cell of these men

Jeseph GrelV was convicted about ti year
and a half age, and was sentenced te live
years' imprisonment for breaking into a

in that affair was a young man named
Geedman, who broke out with Gibsen the

Keene as ' Mellaril." The appearance of
Mr. Themas W. Keene at Fulton opera house
this evening Is the only really great
tragic event at present en Mr. Yocker's books,
and it is te be hoped that the community
will show their appreciation et the treat
therein presented for their enjoyment by lin
ing the opera house. Mr. Keene Is a stranger
hereabouts, but the credentials he bears with
him are all et tlie llrst order. Ills Richard, in
which he Is billed te appear here. Is pronounced
by the Chicago Tribune te be In many respects
the best en the stage, lull of fire and often

the distinguished tragedian.
