THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 18t0. "jail jugglery- Midnidit Court Held 1)Y Six Prisoners who Discharge Themselves And Skip for Parts Unknown. The quiet of Las Vegas was dis turbed yesterday morning by the re port that there had been a wholesale jail delivery, aud that six prisoners had flown. The discovery was mude by old Pablo Domínguez, chief of the guards, who rising about day break found the door, at the end of the pas sageway connecting with the placila, standing ajar. Upon inspection of the cells he found that, in one, instead of seven prisoners whom ho hud lock id up Tuesday night only one was visible. There was certainly bad judgement exhibited in not despatch ing a posse (if meu atter the runaways at once, but so far as wc can find out nothing more than idle talk was in dulged in, save that Judge Morrison's court was convened at 9 o'clock aud a hearing of the case begun upou. From the testimony brought forward, it is evident that the guards were derilect in their duty, for although it is not tint a tew Oavs since, at their solicita tion, a stove was set up in thepassag w;iv leading to the entrance and ev erything made comfortable for them, those chose to desert iheir post, and spent the night by the kitchen tire either iu slumbering or playing cards, as some animate. .Nothing was learned from the guards and all that is known of the movements of the prisoners comes from a Mexican, Pablo .Montes de Oelioa, who was confined in the same cell with them, awaiting trial for the murder of a freighter committed in the iovver country some mouths ago. Sometime before midnight, accord ing lo do Ochou's account, his fellow prisoners began the work of picking the locks on the cell door, there being a padlock at the .op and bottom Ti:edooris constructed of iron bars piaced at right angles, and through the s.( uare apertures, tho men were able to squeeze their hands and work away at picking the locks. From the evidence it would hcein as thougli 1 teces ofwire aboiit the size of tele g a. h wire ns u.-eil for ihis purpose. As several euriousjiei sons have since tried to repeal the operation and have met with ill succcíh, the opinion that fal.se key- were Hiiuggled into the ceil and used by the men is consider ed the correct one. In order to dead en all Mumds within the ceils, blankets vere lucked through the bars of the door, uinl altei a whiie one lock gave way. The Mexican was theu waked and the progress reported to him, but tailing asleep, he was a second time aroiiM.-d and found the door open. Outside mis iron door was a wooden (.loor whicii should have been Kept locked but was pushed open without any .difficulty. The next thing to be done va. to relieve them H'iVes ot their sha kles and bracelets. several were able to slip the latter oer their hands mid were then at lib eriy to assist llieir companions. A tile was produced and beloro Ion' t heir shackle, were filed oil, at the second link at one end, the rest ol chain being concealed about their per sons. Mieir trccloiu so nearly al- tnuicU Ihev yet hesitated before tak ing it and for several houis they rt make d quiet iu the cell before ven luring out lo ibreú he lock oí the en trance wuor. this was soon effected and the men dashed away on horse back, it is presumed. All this while the .Mexican ailuded to was merely a spectator, refusing to join the prison-r- in treeing themselves. When ticked why he did not go away with ihein, he declared, with considerable emphasis, that he had nothing to fear by .landing trial and was content to May in jail till that lime arrived. Af ter the birds had flown, he quietly rolled up all the blaukets in the cell, and made for himself a comfortable bed. on which he was sleeping when aroused by the guards iu the morn ing. The Gazkttk on numerous occa sions has deprecated in strong terms anything bordering on lawlessness, nnd has counseled that the law should take its course. We believe this still, but think that this affair should teach in u Iftvon and that to be careful to whom we trust the custody of our . prisoners. The escape of the tollow-1 ing iueo Is a ead commentary ou our ;. administration of justice, especially when it was effected so easily. , the runaways. j J. J. Webb was tried, convicted Hiid sentenced to be hung for the mur- ! der of Michael Kelliher in tt is city last spring. He look an appeal, which was to have been heard at this session of the Supreme Court at Santa Fein January. George Davidson was awaiting trial for the murder of Starbird, tho hack driver, iu April last. Johu Allen, t iok an appeal from a death sentence, for the brutal murder of James Mordicad at the St. Nicho las hotel last March. Win. Mullen, under indictment for complicity in a train robbei y about a year ago. George Davis, under indictment for stealing mules. John Murry, under indictment for murdering a grader near Tecolote about a year ago. Nothing more is known of he af fair, as the guards were snoring all the while the programme for the es cape wa9 being carried out. Even i lie direction in which the prisoners fled is unknown, and to all appear ances the officials don't care where I hey have gone. Ot course there are those who bold ly charge the watch at the jail or the officials with having been bought up. but the charge is so serious a chai ac ter that it should not be talked of in public, at least, uuless some gooi grounds for such .tatemeuts are shown which is not the case at present. The fact of the matter is that the guard nave siiirtea their duty am; meir easy going ways, or rather their shiftlessness, gave the friends of the imprisoned meu an op portuuity to communicate with them and very likely they were furnished with skeleton keys.

Another Seimtion. It is a self-evident truth that New Mexico has been for yearn the asylum of desperadoes. Mingled with as good people as arc to be found any where on the conduct is the scum ol oeicty from all states. We josil against murderers, bank robber.' forgers and other fugitive from jus tice in the post office and ou the plat form at the depot. Just now. a refu gee from an eastern State who is wel t bought of bv his associates, is uudei the surveillance of a private detective right here in Vegas, and for whom hantiaome reward is offered. We art1 in possesion of t lie facts but iu order that justice may not be defeated we forebear giving any details,, but le fore many issues of the Gazette ap pear, otr readers will be treated to a case rivaling that of Morley's captun with this exception, that the detect ive is sure of his man this time. Broken B ockade. The first train from the north since Monday drew iu at the depot at, 10:45 list night. The crowd of huugrv and disconsolate passengers quickly filled the 'bus and other vehicles in waiting and were driven to their stopping places. All thj hotels were filled and bek were at a premium. The stoini in Col rado, that h is causer1 the de lay in the trains, is one ot I he most se vere, as it was unexpected, that has visited lower Colorado for some time. The train was well filled and the amount of mail matter was simply pro digious. There were rumors afloat last uight that a lew cit izens purposed ex pressing popular indignation at the inexcusable jail delivery of the dej perato characters named in another column, but up to a late hourth' projected lynching beo of tho ofllcia s atthejtiil had apparently dissolved in talk.

Everyone who at tends is guaranteed an enjoyable time. In one of the precincts of h"s county the voters had to start the day before the election, Iu order to reach the polls ia time to yote. The prisoners wanted to vote is tho reason they broke jail yesterday morning. They should have been provided with an almanac.

Tiffin are recent arrivals from Kansas. They expect to make Vegas their future home. Mrs. Tiilin has been quite ill since their arrival owing to the change of climate, The object for which the festival at the Presbyterian church will be given this evening is a good one. We understand that the net proceeds vi!l go towards purchasing a building site tor a new church edifice. The train from the sottlh was abandoned at this point yesterday in consequence of the snow blockade iu Colorado, no trains being able to get through. The train doubled up and went ou th again on schedule time. Yesterday morning when it was noised abroad that the i nil was omn-! i ty, alargo number of newspap.r re porters flocked hither to view the va cancy. A ruthless by-si ander re marked that if the d ors were closed i'.ie reporters would make good sub stitutes; It appears that after all special ageutMorley was mistaken in his man in arresting the workman at the de pot on the charge of murdering po liceman Pri;-:tz ol St. Louis. The man who might easily be mistaken for the murderer has been set at libert v. While some of the members of the newspaper fraternity were in specting the jail yesterday, after the delivery had been announced, a by stander remarked that the guards had brtter close the doors, as the quill drivers were good substitutes for tho runaways. Yesterday morning officer Perry, nf th 29th precinct d,ove to San Migue and arrested Tomassa Rivera on sus picion of complicity with her brother iu the robbery at Lcwelling's stable and at a house of prostitution in East Las Vegas. He found only ouh arti cle of the stolen goods but no effort was made to conceal that. The worn- an was brought here aud taken before Justice Steele mid after a careful hearing Totnassa was discharged, iho court being satisfied lint she knew otbing of the robbery. Mr. E.

Still, il the antidote t leanli-j ncss that the enterprising Wilcox secured of a v. el -known physiriau, is taken, wo will not deplore the scare by any means, for it must be apparent to every oue that the sanitary syst- m of Vegas if we have any at all needs reforming. Let there be cleanliness is the universal petition. Capt. Jack Crawford, the poet scout, who distinguished himself iu the late campaign against V'ctorio came up from Santa Fe yesterday and will io to Denver as peon as the block ade is broken. The Captain Is hope ful that there are great prospects of mineral in tho southern country, es pecially in the territory over which he scouted. He is as sanguine that he can inspire as much confidence in the richness of this comparatively un known country, as he did in the Black Hills. We arc confident that, from his success in firing up enthusiasm for that region, we shall, before many months, be indebted to him for a big stampede that will add many pros pectors and miners to our population. Jack's veracity and energy are simply irresistablc II liberty and Angelí have takeu down their lunch counter and put in tables. They now propose io carry on a first class eat ing house.
