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

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

BATEMAN AND STEVENS,
The Belief That Both Their
Bodies Were Stolen From
The St. Joe Gazette's Article,
14 Was Bateman's Body
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.
