It did not state whether any attemnt had been made to escape. It is believed by those who are familiar with the situation at the prison that all the convicts were (in their cells when the wall was torn down and that they will not be taken from the prison until it is repaired. The governor was awakened by the receipt of the message, Sand he immed iately went to the telegraph Offices to send a reply. He found that direct communication was at; that time cut off from the prison , city, but every effort was made to get the message through. There was no wire to South Bend. Because of this' the direct or ders from the governor to the militia at that place could r.ot be sent. The only alternative was to give orders to Reid and have him, communicate with; the officers of the South Bend company. Telephone res also were down, and that means of communica tion with either city was cut off. Erection Began in 1861. The Michigan City prison was erect ed in accordance with an act of the legislature passed March 8. 1859, and the site was purchased in I860, being a tract of 100 acres. The buildings were begun the following year. , The name "Indiana State Prison North" was changed in March 1897. to "Indi ana State Prison." The Institution is for the incarcer ation of all male persons' over the age of 30 years eonvicted of treason, mur der or any felony. The population up to last night was 1,213 and has been growing steadily the last few years. The reason for this is that fewer prisoners -sentenced on reiony cnarges are released on par oles than from other prisons of the state. Recently tne legislature made an appropriation for an addition to the state "prison .for the purpose of hous ing the criminal insane. Fully half, of the population of the prison hae been employed on per diem contract work and the remainder em ployed on .state wprk. . The- capacity of the prison is rated at 1,075. k including a new cellhouse erected two years ago. The prison has been maintained . at an annual cost per capita of more than $120, Chief among the industries carried on at the prison was the binder twine manufacture, which has been operated on state account. . This has been in successful operation since May, 1906, and not only provides employment for the prisoners but has proved a benefit to farmers by giving a good article of twine at .somewhat cheaper rates than other sources, and it had the advant age of being without competition of any kind within the borders of the state.
