THIRTEEN PRISONERS IN F0LS0M
TAKE TO THE HILLS.
Outbreak Was Unexpected and Officers
Were Taken by Surprise Used Knives
Made From Files to Capture Ouardi
Looted Armory, and Secured Plenty
of Arms and Ammunition.
Folsom, Cal., July 29. Thirteen
desperate convicts assault and over
come the guard, capture the prison
armory, make their escape and carry
with them 11 officials and guards of
the Folsom state prison, including War
den Wilkinson and Captain R. S.
Such, in brief, was the news that
startled the people of this community
and sent a thrill through the length
and breadth of the state this morning.
This morning affairs at the prison
went forward in the ordinary groove.
There was no indication of trouble.
The conspiracy of the desperate con
victs whe bad decided on a dash for
liberty, had been well kept. The pris
oners marched into the dining room
and had breakfast. After the meal
the men marched out of the main gate
of the prieon into the yard. The upper
yard line was out and most of the stone
line was through, when two prisoners
turned suddenly on W. Chalmers, the
onter gate keeper, and a dozen others
rushed ior the captain's office, only a
few feet to the left of the main en
trance to the prison proper.
Each oi the desperate men was
armed with a "fi'e knife" or a razor,
and in the twinkling of an eye they
were in the midst of the assembled
guards and officers, none of whom were
armed, and ordered them to line up
and march out.
The convicts, having quelled all
demonstrations made by the free men,
started with their prisoners across the
yard in the direction of the prison arm
ory. Four guards were at the armory
receiving their rifles preparatory to
taking out their "lines." The convicts
marched their prisoners up to the arm
ory, and, holding their knives over
tbem, demanded that the doors be
opened. It was a case of opening the
doors or slaughtering the warden, cap
tain and other officials. Warden Wil
kinson realized the useleesne-s of re
sistance, and told the guards to open
the armory doors. This was done, and
the convicts took possession, secured 10
rifles, 25 revolvers and all the ammu
nition they wanted, and then marched
to the main entrance and demanded
that the gate be opened. They again
threatened their prisoners and the gate
was orened. The convicts marched
out and up the hill in the very teeth of
the Gatling gtins trained on them.
Their plan had worked even beyond
the wildest hope of their imagination.
Their prisoners were, their safeguard,
and they had not lost a single man.
Possos were started in pursuit, 21
guards, headed by lieutenants, and
were after the ftigetives half an hour
after they started. Sheriff Reese dep'
utizeu j.j. h inters, wno gathered a
posse and etaited on the trail over the
mountains, and posses from Eldorado
county were also put in motion.
Battle With Convicts.
Aubwrn, Cal., July 29. . fierce bat
tie occurred between the escaped Fol
som convicts and the officers tonight
near Pilot Hill, in Eldorado county.
The convicts were traveling in a f ur
horse wagon, and after holding up and
looting a store at Pilot Hill of provis
ions, proceeded in the direction of
Shortly after leaving Pilot Hill they
were overtaken by posses from Sacra
mento, Folsom and Placerville. Guard
Curry, of the Folsom posse, opened ne
gotiations bv shooting one of the
horses attached to the convicts' wagon,
and th'a blocked the advance and an
open tight ensued. Convict Howard
was killed outright and Seabis, a negro
conviiit, was badly wounded. Two
guards, who were with the convict",
managed to escape. It was alsc noticed
that Gordon and another convict, were
missing, and it is presumed that they
dropped out somewhere between Folsom
and Pilot Hill and have taken to the
woods, which anywhere in this locality
would provide safe hiding.
Panama Situation Grave.
Washington, July 29. Consul Gud
ger at Panama has made the following
report by cable to the state department
of the episode at that place: "Last
night about 10 o'clock soldiers, headed
f the commander-in-chief, searched
the governor's house. The governor
escaped, tried to reach the consulate,
but was intercepted. Took refuge at
the house of an American. Streets
lined with soldiers. Arrested secre
tary of state and departmental em
ployes. Department has money."
Thames Flood Damages.
London, July 29. Heavy rains over
the south of England caused serious
floods and great damage in London.
The underground railway was flooded
and many printing rooms of London
newspapers built in the underground
district between Fleet street and the
Embankment were flooded and unable
to print. The heavv rains coincided
with a high tide on the Thames, in
undating several lowlying districts.
Bid TIMBER DEAL.
Harriman and Hill Unite In Effort to
Control World's Market.
San Francisco, July 28. The Bulle
tin tays that E. H. Harriman and
James J. Hill are uniting in a great
timber deal, whereby they, with a num
ber of associates, will control the lum
ber market ol the world. ' They are se
curing large tracts of forest land in
Northern California and Oregon,
through their agents, who have been
for some time quietly buying property
on the coast. Among the associates of
the two railroad magnates are Frederick
Weyerhaeuser, of Minneapolis, I. B.
Walker, cf Minneapolis; Jacob Blod
gett, of Grand Rapids, and a number of
other members of influence in the vari
ous timber sections of the Western
E. W. Eberlin, of New York, has
been in California for several months.
He is Harriman's agent in this state,
and has made frequent trips to the
northern part of the state, where he
has been buying up available timber
lands. Eberlin has also been working
toward securing options on timber land
held by various Eastern people who
purchased it since the boom in ' Cali
fornia timber began about three years
With the many minor holdings which
Harriman and hia associates may count
on, it is said that the plan is to merge
the more valuable lands controlled by
the Hill roads and the Southern Pacific
into a trust. The Southern Pacific's
principal holdings are represented in
the grant of ten miles on each side of its
road, lying between the southern boun
dary line of Oregon and a point south
of Portland, and consists o about 1,
000,00u acres of flr and sugar pine. In
his plan to place these lands in a pool
Harriman does so conditionally, with
provisions for the protection of the com
pany's creditors, to whom all the lands
of the company are pkdged in security
for its indebtedness.
With the lands of the Hill and the
Harriman roads and those of Walker,
Weyerhaeurer and others in Washing
ton, Oregon, Idaho and California
under control, Harriman and his asso
ciates would be in a position to control
the lumber market of the world.

JAPAN WILL PURSUE A WAITLNQ
Along the Same Lines a Those Ob
served by United States Fallur; 0f
Russia to Withdraw October 1
Will Be Followed by Serious Move on
Part of Mikado.
London, July 27. Japan has de.
cided to adopt the policy of waiting and
watching Russia, advocated by Urwt
Britain. In the meantime she- will
urge China to carry out the assurances
given to the United States respecting
Manchuria, and will endeavor to ob
tain the opening of -additional ports.
At the Japanese legation here the fol
lowing statement was made by an
official to the Auuocrciated Press:
"I can aaraure you that the talk of
war bet wwii Russia and Japan ia an
invention. Japan has not the least in
tention of taking that course. She
proposes to wait and maintain her atti
tude of watchfulness. Japan and
America are acting on the same lines,
and it would be difficult for any other
power to withstand the pressure thej
and Great Britain could apply."
it is said that Japan intends to do
nothing until October, when the final
evacuation of Manchuria must occur.
The failure of Rusbia to withdraw from
Manchuria vould be followed by a seri
ous move on the part of Japan.
ihe Russian embassy here regrets the
confusion which has resulted in conse
quence of the report that has arisen
that Prince Ching, head of the Chi
nese foreign office, has written to Min
ister Conger refusing to open po'ts in
Manshuria. The Russian officials at
Washington believed that the note ww
sent before China gave her assu-ances,
and they aseerted-positively that Russia
intends to carry out to the letter the as
surances she has given, and will not in
terpose obstacles in the wav of China's
observing her pledge to Secretary. Hay.

it at a given place.
The house committee at the time the

it would leave the sum appropriated bv

ALL TO THE CHURCH.
Will of Pope Leo Bequeaths Property ta
Rome, July Jo. 'be will of Pope
Lw XIII was Vas ope-ned today at the
congregation card'inals. It was the
intention of the ctudinals to maintain
the strictest eecrey conceraing its con
tents, but it is learned that it compris
es SO sheets in the handwriting of the
late pope, xcept additions evidently
made in- his later years when the pope
found" considerable difficulty in writ
ing, owing to the trembling of his
Knd. The earlier portions of the tes
tament include the recommendation
which the testator addressed to his ex
ecutors, Cardinals Rampolla, Mocenni
and Cietoni, on the best way to con
tinue the religious impulse given to the
rhunh as well as the policy followed
by the holy see daring later years.
The document then enumerates all
the property which Leo posetsed and
pro rides that it shall go to hia successor
for the benefit of the church, including
even the presents, which might perhaps
be considered personal rather than gifts
to the pontiffs at such.
To she members of his family, the
pope left a present for each to be chosen
from the valuable objects in bis apart
ments and similar gilts were be
queathed to his doctors. All the land
purchased and buildings erected for in
stitutions personally founded by Leo
are put in the name ot the holy see to
avoid possible clrima from relatives,,
as tbe pope probably remembered that
some time after the death of Pius IX,
the latter's nephews instituted a suit
against the church, claiming 15,000
francs as their portion cf the estate.
The will ends by providing that his
PEOPLE, SEH THE DEAD POPE.
Oreat Crowd at St. Peter's to Obtain
Last View of Dead Pontiff.
Rome, July 23. From sunrise today
until sunset thousands of people passed
before the bier of Leo XIII, lying ia
state in the basilica of St. Peter's. It
was originally intended that this op
portunity to view the body Bhonld run
through three days, but tonight it is
learned that the funeral may be held
Friday instead of Saturday night, owing
to the evidence that decomposition ia
letting in. This is due to today's
severe heat, from which no embalming
could perfectly protect the body.
The impression of those who today
passed before tbe gates of St. Peter's to
view the body was one of intense pity
combined with a certain sense of hor
ror. The body waa tilted, up on the
catafalque in order that all might see
I the terribly shrunken faee. An ordin
ary skull in a frame of gold lying ia
the midst of a mass of red robes could
scarcelv have been more typial of death.
Except at sunrise when the crush
threatened a panic, all those who vis
ited it had an opportunity ef entering
St. Peter's. During the dav many of.
those who passed in stopped 'before tbe
catafalque to say a quiet prayer. Hun
dreds of women and even some of the
men carried children in their arms.
JAPAN STRIPS FOR WAR.
But Russia Will Not Yield and Pours
London, July 25. The Daily Mail's
Tokia correspondent sends.rather an
alarming view of the situation in the

crease of her fleet, the dispatch of re
inforcements to Manchuria, the south
ward movement of the occupying army

than risk the eventual loss of Corea

ing stores and negotiating tho purchase
of ships; that a squadron is off Vladi
vostok, to which port Russian vessels
have been sent as a precaution, and
that both fleets are ready for action at
any moment. He says that a perusal
of the Siberian press reveals the aggres

that the Russians believe they will lose
prestige if they give wav now, with the
result that their far Eastern, empire

Constanitnople, Ju'y 25. The in
