Walter Turpin. a second-lernv white
I convict, originally sentenced 'from fUynch
! nrg for. larceny, but sent up on" second
conviction; from Richmond, city.'; escaped
from the -penitentiary yesterday in. broad
daylight, and -so far as is known is still
at large. ' - - /
Turpirrs': escape was carefully planned
and executed, and so successfully that
he had a safe lead over the guards before
his escape bad been discovered. He was
at work in the shoeshop during the after
noon, but. had been industrious, and had
finished his: • day'e task as cariy as- 4
o'clock. He then asked the guard to
let him go ..to his cell— a. privilege custo
mary whon the day's task has been
completes— and the request was readily
granted.
It whs. about 4:15 o'clock when he was
allowed to leave the shop. Jind nothing
was t-uGjiected vuitil the prisoners were
counted to bo. locked in their, cells. Then
it v.-as discovered that Turpin was miss
ing. The alarm was at oncp given', and
search, instituted, with the result that the
convict's esca pe was diefcovered, and like
wise* the. means by ; which he had taken
such unceremonious leave" of his fel-.
lows. ' . ■• . ' " . . '. .
A "Well I,ai«l Plan.
Instead o£ going to his cell. Turpin,
before leaving fuo shop surroptHiouisly s-? 7
cured possession of some citizen's cloth
ing, and then took a step-ladder, which
he had planned to use in : his dash for
freedom. : After exchanging , the. prison
garb- for tho. less conspicuous and more
resjicctatjlc attire, the man watched his.
opportunity.! and, .: placing .the' ladder.
against the^wall,.: near ..the female de
partment, thus sealed the bar that. stood
betwwn him and freedom. The ladder
was carried from the hops. It was
there, {too, that ho- got hold of his clothes
for which he exchanger] his convict
stripes. The ladder and the discarded
uniform word found, showing how the
trick "' had ..been worked, but Turpin was
beyond pursuit.-, ... - \.
Was Seen .When He .Inmiicil..
■ The= last seen of -the man. .was on Belyi
dere street. A passing- : citizen saw- him
leap down to the outside of the enclosure
and walk across the intervening: space to
Bejviderc street, since which time, thero
is no trace of him. The vicinity was
searched, -but he was; nowhere located.
When seen he wore a brown derby hat
and had on a suit; of neat dark elo;..ing. ;
including-, a. coat, which showed that --o
had carefully located all the needed ap- ,
parol. Naturally a man thus clad attract- |
ed little attention, and -it was easy. ; for
him to. mingle/ with \the- throng in the.;
city without, exoitiiig suspicion." /',---
At the lime of the Wf-capo Major Holms,
the superintendent, was absent.; being at.
Hollywood cemetery with the veterans . it
the unveiling of a monument. Ho was
immediateiy notified, and every effort was
made to apprehend the fugitive, with ex
cellent proppectsof soon having the man
again in custody.
Double TrScc on .'His Hca.sl.
The, police of the. city were notified of
his .escape. Many of them know Turpin
[by 'sight, ■iiiill;- a if- there- is^a reward of
$100 for the man. howiU find his liberty
liriel if -lie, remain in this city. A care
ful (if scripfcon- of the man's features and
•'statue were furnished :thu police, together
[with all the information possible, as. to
j the clothes lie -l" wore at the time. As no
one haw hinv I 'dressed In his new rig.
or if he was seen", not carefully observed,
it is impossible- to give a detailed descrip
tion of his appearance. Major Helms sup
plemented th<vu:isn3j ?n0 reward with tn<?
offer of another 550. which he will indi
vidually pay for the. apprehension of the
! man. The police of Lynchburg. Norfolk,
j Petersburg and- all the surmunding cities
arid towns' • weiv notilied"- of ' the escape,
3P.d furnished with ?. description of the
fugitive and a silatment of the -reward.
Major Helms is leaving no stone unturned
to detect and secure the man. '
ifns Bad Criminal Record.
j Turpin has a bad record. He is a con
| firmed criminal. Before, his incarceration
I in the penitentiary iic was committed to
th^ reformatory in the hope that he might
be -"saved from acarr-er of crime, but to
jno avail. Being convicted of larceny, in
I Lynchburg, he- was- sent up for the usual
two ycarrfterm andaftor serving that was
I again defected- in crime in this city. Upon"
j conviction "re ?Qt two years more and five
j additional were added, this being a sec- .
J iiritj conviction. His second conviction fol
lov.-v?tl his: arrest by OvScer Schlicf. who [
detected- him 'in the act of breaking into J
j a tool hoiTse on Dock street. ITc had sorv- .
' y-d but a .small portion of his second con- J
I vietSon and scypr;i|;: more years to serve. !
{ ]n. the event of his i'cayture, he will have j
['. toYseryo out not only- the-; remainder f>f ,
the 'term for, . vyliicli he was sent up, but -
•.yijl h.nvir" -from one, to five years added as ' t
'X*' punish ':':i en t : for* h!« cf^ape: Owing to '^
I !iis bad record and tbo f;ict that he was a j
i a. -second . termer, he will in all probability (
i get the fuil jive years added. (
j ■ . .-• Fs n. Vouurr 3J:m. t
l_ Turpin is now hardly VZ years old. and 1
I "already has :i checkered career. In any t
j event, it yvill hardly b« long before h^ is '
l again cV-teetcfl inhis old failing and once t
{.more convicted and returned to the c
| "white-house on .the hill." where so much- f
jof his .young nir.nhood has, been spent. -T
.\s n result :.of his abuse of. the privileges „t
acoordnu him. a. closer watch will be had E
upon the other prisoners and their privi- -
lo^es will doubtless be curtailed.

ho returned to his office, breathless, and
tin owing his coat on a chair, he continued
in his lessons asf'a cotilion leader {ih'his
shirt sleeves. The care of the office, and the
thoughts of grtisome relics were . disperis-"
ed .with to make, himself more perfect in
the subtle art of the two-step,' while his
young secretary whistled to the coroner's
mistakes, which- brought the perspiration
in strearas, around, his collar. ■: ; ••■ '- .-■■ .-.-

- The history of the removal of telegraph
wires from Broad street is interesting.
At the time of' the war between the
States, and for several years thereafter,
the main line of tne Fredcricks'burg road,
as it was then known, was along Broad
street to the corner of Eighth, where its
)X!S. u enger and freig..t depots were locat
ed, one* in tho building now the Bijoi:
.Theatre: the other across Eighth street.
For year's these old trucks were tin ob

the reason ' that tho old horse car line
had .rights ovor.them. Finally'/' .-when,
these rights expired, the city, determined
to remove tiiT tracks. About this time;
the construction of the City Hall was
begun, and the otd trackn' were allowed

and metal and ether material used it?

consumed. Then the building of the Jet'
fersbn . Hotel came* up. and the tracks
were utilized as. far as necessary to facili

structure. After the. hotel had been com-
