Since the eompletion and occflprtncy of
the preseut jail, nearly seven years ago,
there have boen confined within its walls
186 persons, on various charges. Of these
Knight Dexter, during the three years and
tw» months he was sheriff after the jail
was built, took care of 48, and It. E. Aus
tin, during the three years aud six months
he has been sheriff, lias looked after the
interests of 138. We believe since its es
tabHshmtnt there has not bfcefc a single?
jail delivery until the five persons got ?ut
on tlie 2nd., inst. Mr. Austin has had
charge of some most desperate characters
and he lias always taken good care of
them. He not only had to provide for the
criminals of Tama County, but also for a
large number from Marshall and Benton
counties. Tiiat he has done so well con
sidering the men with whom lie has had
to deal is a matter of surpuse. There
have been several characters confined in
the |hil here who have made their boasts
tliat'tlicy had already broken out of a
good many jails aud didn't propose to
stay in there long. But they found when
tlicy were put in that thej- staid there un
til they were let out either through the
proper forms of law, or were taken up to
Anamosa. It is not known how tliejrt
prisoners succeeded in getting ready to
escape. It is only known Hint they in
some way became possessed of a saw and
cut their way out. One of them has been
caught, ajrtllf the others are not brought
back in a reasonable time we will be sur
prised, for Mr. Austin will leave no stone
unturned to get them and Ave believe he
will succeed.
