They seized JVVarden Wilkinson, his
grandson Harry Wilkinson, Captain of
the Guard R. J. Murpliy, and several
other officers and guards, -and, using
them as &. .shield against the fire of the
gatling 'gtins, proceeded to the armory
post, overcame a guard who sought to
stay them, armed themselves with rifles
and pistols, and escaped across the pri
son ranciwnto Eldorado County.
A desperate -fight took .place in the '
captain's office, where the prisoners
made thiir break. The convicts were
armed with knives and razors, and with
these they assaulted Warden Wilkinson
and his officers. The warden's clothing
was slashed into shreds with a razor,
but the blade did not touch the fiesh.
C. J. Cochran , turnkey of the prison,
entered the office durine the assault and
seized a chair, with , which he made for
the assailants of the officers. He rained
blows upon them right and left, but he
was felled with a thrust in the back. -It
is thought he may die.

At the Central Hotel last evening a

one of the bedrooms with a revolver

Abojt a week ago the young lady ap
peared before Mrs. Krakenbenr. the
landlady o! the Hotel, and tellinc hpr x
hard luck story Mrs. Krakenberg took
her in and told her she would keep her
until the could find her employment.
A go. J place was found for her but then
she absolutely refused to work. She
was then told that she must work or
leave the house: She went up to her
room and soon after was found lying in
the power of the deadly potion as above
stated. The supposition is that after
first taking the poison and fearing that
it would not work, she went into the
bedroom oi one the men near by and
extracted a revolver therefrom. Then
as the poison begin to work she fell to
the floor. Drs. 1 uGas and Fiher
at once sent for who with Mrs. Kraken
burg worked with her most of the night
and at an early nonr this morning shi
began to recover. Since she, has been
in town ehe has absolutely refused to
give her name and she repeatedly told
Mrs. Kraktnburv that no tne in Oregon,
ever knew it or ever would know it. But
this morning after the had slightly re
covered she divulged the secret to one
oi the -waitresses atthe hotel, and said -her
name was Cecil Porter. She srires
her home as Jiarshtield. She says that
