Austin, Tex., Nov. 12.—The stories
of abuses at the hands of guards and

system, which were told by convi'ts in
their sworn testimony before the state
investigating committees.have brought
to lignt siich horrible piacticts that

Rusk, where one of the penitentiaries
is situated brought out a number of
uew horrors in the treatment of con
victs. Much of the testimonv given at
Rnsk yesterday was corroborated at
tcdaj's sission of the committee.
According to the testimony before
the committee, guards and sergeants

system, but implicates one man who is

torture he had found fault,to finish the

The committee did not rely on the
unsupported statement of individual
convicts. It had the larger part of the
nauseating recitals corroborated in
numerous ways. In most instances
the tenible whippings given the con
victs were without the slightest cause.
They afforded a means of gratifying
the passion and pleasure of the guaids.
