V i. If VOLUME 16. A CRAZY PRISONER SED ALIA, MO., TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1884. In the State Penitentiary Mor tally Wounds Two Wiite Men and a Negro. He Steals Upon His Victims While Asleep With Mur derous Intent. The White Men Will Probably Die, But the Black Will Recover. Jeff-rson City, Dec. 13. Special J A blotdy tragedy occured at the penitentiary last night, the particulars of which are about as follows: An cp-leplic convict, named John Mrton, who was sent here in September, 1S82, since which time he has "been mostly a hospiul inmate, arcse from his hed about midnight, and goiDgout into the hall, procured an iron rod used for a poker, which is three Jert and six inches lone:, and about an inch thick. Armed with this weapon, he went into the ward of the hospital ued for cranky convicts, who aie classed as insane but harmless. In one room four men were sleeping, nd MASON STEALTHILY APPHOACKED THEIR BED, and before they were aware of his presence, commenced striking them over the heads with the poker. The first one he ?ssailed was Charles Zsgner whom he dea't three terrible blows over the head, one above each eye and one on the(forehead, breaking his skull over each eye and inflicting a serious scalp wound on the forehead. He next attacked Louis Hoelscher, whom he struck five powerful blows over the head, breaking iu the top of his skull for a distance of nearly five inches and otherwise cutting his head and face up in a terrible manrer. Mason next visited another ward where he assailed a negro, named Andy Allison, whom he struck once over the head cutting an artery. By this time AN EPELEPTIC NEGRO, named JacksoD, was awaked hy the noise and slipping upon Mason caught the po ker. A struggle ensued, and a com motion was raised that a guard from another part of the build ing rushed in, and taking in the situ ation at a glance, disarmed the raaniuc aud, locked him up securely. Dr. 0. E. Oglesby the prison physician was hastily summon-j ed and hurrying to the priton an awiul sight met his gaze. On one bed laid two men with their skill's mashed Id, and on another a negro with an artery cut in his head and slowly bleeding to death. The doctor at once proceeded to tie up the aitery in the negroe's head and afterwards rend-red all the relief possible to the two white men. Strange as it m-ay appear, both of the whte men are living at this hour of writing, although they are cer tainly both MORTALLY WOUNDED. The negro will, in all probability get well. John Mason, the maniac, who com mined tbe above terrible crimts, is about fortv-five years old and is a Frenchman by birth. He ws sent Brighton Beach Races.

The St. Joe Gazette's Article, 14 Was Bateman's Body Dissected?'' St. Joe, Mo., Dec. 13. Special. The Gaz2ttee of to-morrow, under the caption at "Was Bteman's Body Dissected," will publish an article which furnishes almost conclusive proof that the bodits of two marderers have been resurrected within the patt few days and are now undergoing dissection in two medical colleges of this city. When Oliver Bateman was hanged at Savannah, on the 21st of November lafct, several leading physicians of Sr. Joe, including Dre. S. S. Carpenter and J. W. Henddeus, professors of anatomy, in ihe college here, were in attendance and offered large sums of money for the body. These ofiers were refused and the" remftios were taken in charge by the father cf the deceased and interred within three hundred yards of the family residence iu Andrew county. Within the past two days it has loan rumored that the body was subsequently sto'en and brought to this city. In refer ring to this the Gazette will say it is now known that a week alter the ex ecution ten strangers, with a covered wagon, having in it a large commercial trunk were seen camping in the yicinily of where Bateman was buried about dark, aud before day brek the next morning had disappeared as mysteriously as they come. It in also known that two men with a wagon, described ss above, drove into St, Joe after midnight the same night and were seen to drive up in front of oae of the medicnl colleges. The professors of anat omie in both schools were interroga ed, but we:e reticent upon the subject. They would not deny thrt the bocy had ben resurrected, neither would they admit that it had not. This much is positively known, that the bodies of two men who were huo are now lei g dissected in this city, and tie bedy of ore, as ascertained from a student, answers the descsip'ion of Oli ver H. BaiemaD. It is admired that the other is that of Ch&s. F. Sttvens, alits "Omaha Charlie," who was hanged by a mob at Marysville, last week. It is believed that the Northwestern college is carving Ba.eman, while St. Joe college has Stevens. Efforts were made to day to suppress the publication of the article in question but to no avail.
