Arretted. 6 recognized ' as sn escaoed member of Randall's Island Colonv and sent back. He remained for a little over vear and escaped again. , From that time Oney" gradually acquired tue reputation of be ing not only a notorious character, but also an expert In the art . of escaping. He told the writer that he had served terms at Hart's Randall's and Black well Islands, as well as the Penitentiarv. '.Ha had twice been arrested and punished for assault and battery. "The last lime I knocked a man oil the rcof of a freight car on the Hariem line, I was working lor tne road, and ooe evening as we went but a man climbed up and wanted to steal a ride. 1 told him to get: off. but ha wouldn't, so .

Uney, In the most unconcerned 'manner ,, i Vff He then went on and said that he bad twice been arrested for " petit larceny. about ten times for vagrancy, and about fifteen or twenty times for Intoxication and disorderly conduct "But I always escaped.you see," with great glee.- Why, in two weeks 1 was twice sentenced to six months, and served neither term.' "Tes, I remembered," "said keeper Hennessey, "when I was at Black well 'a Island the only way in which I could hold bfta was by keeping him locked up in a cell. Give him the least little thing to do outside and he would ba ;otf like a phantom." Oney seemed not a little flittered'at this acknowledgment of his dexterity. "Do yon remember," ; be said,, "what a fuss they made the time when I escaped. ? FROM THB ISLAND IN A COFFIN Turning to the writer ho added': "They made the coffins for those who were to be buried in Potter's Field on the' Island at thetimo. . One nigut I got ioto.the work-house, slid one ot the coffins Into the water, laid down in it, and drifted down the stream with the tide.'1 When I got some distance off I used my hand here he raised his stumps as paddle. But before I had gone very far I found that the coffin leaked very badly, so I got out and swam ashore." - i ' For the past six yeara "Oney," kept himseH in Texas, where he herded cattle, and as he added, killed Greasers andln dians when they stole horses or cattle. A few weeks ago he came to this city "on a visit. During his six years' stay he had saved, as he said, some 8500. 'i"One day last week," he said, "I waa standing in West Twenty -third street watching a man cleaning a carriage.- A couple of fellows came up and began beating him on the back with slats. ' I went np' to them and told them not to do it, but they beat him the more. Just then a police man who thought I was encouraging the boy to strike the man came, up and talked rough with me. Well, we had some words, and I guess he was going to strike me with his club, bo I just drew my Bowie-knife and cut him. I didn't cut bim bad just scratched him, you know and so got only five days City Prison for it." .' , "Don't say any thing bad about me; ror if you do, I'll never forgive you," was his parting admonition, as be dived into his cell, his face still drawn up Into the most daring convulsion, which were intended for smiles.
