POPULACE IN TERROR GOVERNOR ORDERS OUT MILITIA TO RECAPTURE THE FLEE ING CONVICTS. Waitarn Newspaper Union News Service. Rawlins, Wyo. Four men ora known to bavo been killed, ono mortally wounded and the entire city panic-stricken as the result of the second riot In twenty-four hours in the state penitentiary. Right convicts battered their way to liberty over the insensible bodies ef their beaten guards. Two were-slain In the streets; another slew his clti aen assailant, and a luckless hunter also fell a victim. Fighting between the hnndgful of guards and the three hundred desper ate prisoners who remain continued and it Is believed the result will add many more names to tho death-roll. Governor Carey has ordered a com pany of militia from Chcyenno to re store peace. Charles Strasser, a barber, attempt ed to stop the fleeing band of outlaws and was shot through tho right tem ple, dying instantly. Another, whose namo has not been learned, was hilled when the convicts held up a hunting party, grabbed weapons and ammunition and fled on. A llfo term convict named Paseo perhaps fatally stabbed a liveryman, while his fellow bandits robbed the barn of all available horses. Paseo was killed within a few minutes by Deputy Warden O'Brien. As tho twenty convicts left the cell house and rushed to tho prison walls, keys In hand, twelve of them refused to go through the gates. The others, forming a phalanx, dashed down Buf falo street for three blocks, taking the same route as did the nineteen who escaped from the prison Saturday af ternoon. Shortly before nightfall six of the convicts who escaped Saturday were trapped In a canon a few miles south of hero and recaptured. Citizens here are terror-stricken. The men are banded together in a vigilance committee, part of them act ing as a posse to aid in the recapture of the convicts, and others surrounding the penitentiary. The battle being waged within the prison walls gives rlße to great fears that the three hun dred convicts will be able to over power tho guards who are fighting so desperately, and make a break for lib erty. Widowed mothers with their babes In their arms joined men and women In a mass meeting here when the ter rible news of the escape and the in surrection, which is still raging within the prison gates, was spread over tho town. n i.J 1 '.M Frightened at the knowledge that ton despernte criminals are at largo possibly within the town limits, the nows of the second escape and con tinued mutiny started a panic. In tho mass meeting held they framed a tele gram imploring Gobernor Carey to or dor out tho militia so that the riot ing might stop and the people not only of Rawlins but the entire state might have assurance of more adequate pro tection from the fiends now at lib erty. Governor Carey responded within an hour and a half after the news of the outbreak reached him.
