Fine Specimens of Corundum. .
Profv C. D. Smith, of Macon county,
dropped in to-day on his return from
Yancey county where he bad been pros
pecting for minerals. He showed us
some very fane- specimens of corundum
from the property of Smith and Proffitt.
He had three different colors, the blue,
the red and the grey. He has compafetl
this with corundum from other mines
and considers it a very superior quality.
Had one magnificent specimen of ruby
corundum. Prof. Smith has been engag
ed in mineralogical researches for many
years and has given his exclusive time to
this study and prospecting for he past
twenty years, and there is doubtless no
one in western Carolina as well posted
in this. line of work as he.

and cotton, and all these crops between
here and Raleigh are looking well. He
met gentlemen from various portions of
the State who reported-to him the same
facts as to' the erops of everyBection. and"
the general yield will unquestionably be
larger than for many years past.
He met the state othcers while 111 Kal-

To (Tie nm. ff. A. Shvfgrd, Judge of ihe
Inferior Court of Buncombe County'
we tne urana j urors tor the. J uly term
of the Court 1885, in obeciience to the
special charge of your Honor, beg leave
to make the fallowing report ,,.
' We have examined the jail of the said
county and. find it. safe ih all respects "ex
cept there are. ; no-: sufficient barriers; .to
the windows so that persons can be prev
ented from communicating with the pris
oners in the cells. We find that knives,
pistols and instruments r with which to
breaks but of the jail, can be passed to
the prisoners through &p windows. We
find that the attentioai. the ; Board, of
Commissioners hav.ee:caliia this
fUUt but that tticlwye neglected to"?aKV
any steps te remedy this defeefcand there
fore have been guilty of gross: hejrHgne
in the discharge of their duty. -- And that
it is the opinion of this grand : jury that
they should be enquired of by the body
of the county. Wo further find as a fact
that on the night of 13th day of July,
188o, li ye (5) prisoners, on the charge of
murder, confined in said jai Wdid escape
therefrom under the" following" circum
stances, to-wit : . About 8 o'clock P. M.
John KKieh the sheriff entered in. the
cells where these prisoners were confin
ed to make an examination of the cells
before locking up for the night, leaving
Daniel Henderson the jailer on the outr.
side of the cells in charge of the locks
and keys fasteningthe doorsA 'That the
apartment ih which these prisoners were
confined ; consists of a corridor and two
cells; that the' doors leading into the two
cells are opened from the , corridor, but
are lastened bjr means of a lever that is
worked and locked on the outside of the
apartment. . That the door .leading into
the orridor is fastened on the outside with
two bolts, one near the bottom.ofthe.door,
the other about; . the center of the door.
The : latter, together with the lever, are
both worked and locked in an iron box;
which is closed and. fastened with a com
bination lock. Before going into the corri
dor on the night aforesaid, the prisoners
seven in. number were ordered into the
two cells, five going into the cell farthest
from the door leading into the corridors
and two into the cell nearest the said
door. The prisoners having entered the
cells the doors were closed by the jailor
by means of the lever; the, Sheriff then
entered ithe! cotridor and- rojeeeded to
make ah examination of the same. The
jailor closed the door with the bolts, but
neglected to lock the same, lhe jailor
having closed the corridor door opened
the cell doors, by means of the , lever, to
allow the Sheriff to enter the cells and
examine them. . When the doors were
opened the prisoners in a body rushed
out and some presenting ' pistols and
others seizing the Sheriff, by means of a
towel with a knot , in it, the Sheriff was
overpowered, gagged and thrown into'
the farther cell. While this was being
done a pistol was presented at the jailor
through the '.bars of the corridor door
and he. was ordered not to move, or they
oould-HBhooi .TiniicCrhat th-doojwaa
then opened by one of lhe prisoners and
the jailor says he was so frightened that
he can't toll how it was opened. One or
two of the prisoners then came out and
ordered him into the .other cell, where
he was also gagged and bound. ; The
doors of the two cells were then locked
by means of the lever. One of the
prisoners then tried to ffect an escape
by means of the iron door leading out of
the room, butihe jailor's wife.who had
possession-of 'the keysj -refuserf" to'opeh
tlie door. The prisoners then went to
the window and an axa was handed into
them by some pexsoa . or1 persons ;on the
outside. - By toeahs of this axe, :-a i hole
was made through the outside wall of
the jail, through : wbicfrhole five of the
seven prisoners made their escape In
the'meantime an alarm had been given
and some citizens came and released the
Sheriff and jailor. " The Sheriff then
summoned a posse J of -twenty pieh and
nhirtfxl in Tini-cmir. and . were cone some
1 twentv-six hours but could not find them.
No other effort has been made to capture

hear nothing of the fugitives. '
We further .find that there, had befell a
previous effort on the part of the priaoik
ers to make an escape,- and that a letter
had been handed to the Sheriff warning
him that an attempt- would be made by
the prisoners, or their friends, to. bribe

by a" friend of one of the murdered men
and was handed to the Sheriff by one
of the prosecuting counsel..;. We further
find that he was advised byV; friends not
to expose himself by going into the cell.
He was also told by an ex-cdnimissioner
of the county that if he did notf know
how to manage the cells without expos-"
mg himself, that he (the ex-commison-er,)
would show him; - We further find
that the Shetiff had been instructed how
to manage the ceils by one of the acting
commissioners , of the county. The
firanrt ' Jurv are of the oninion that the
said Sheriff was guilty of carelessness
and negligence in not ussng the proper
precautions; in entering the cells. And
that this should be enquired of by the
body of the county." . . . , . ;
The Grand Jury are further of the
opinion that the jailor : was guilty o

locking the' bolts that fastened the door
leading into ..the corridor; andthatltf
these bolts had been locked, no rnan; or
number of men in the cells or corridor
wdhld baye-been able to have affected
an escape. And that this gross and cul
pable negligence on the part of the jailor
should be enquiredof by the body of the
count, We are further of the opinion
that the prisoners did have a correspond
ence with a person or persons outside of
the jail, and ..from the evidence before
the Grand Jury that pistols were
through the windows into the bells on
Saturday night previous to the escape on
Monday night; in justice ro the bund
ers of the cells the Grand Jury are of the
opinion that if the, rules and directions
of said builders are carried out that if is
impossible for prisoners to escape.
