me inhabitants of the city are In a
state of consternation over the report
which is being circulated saying that dis
patches had been received stating that
700 non-union men would arrive here to
night and take the place of the strikers.
If such is the case there Is no doubt
that a fierce battle will be fought, as
the men are determined that the cars
shal net run until their "demands have
been complied with, and if is feared that
damage to property will result. ' The
strike has reached a state that it is al

SAN i RANCIBCO, Oct 8. The most
sensational escape from prison that has
ever been made In this state occurred
this morning when a convict named Mar

This morning Convict Murphy created
consternation- among the sicte prison

The engine used by the convict in
making his escape is one that is used
to haul crushed reck -from the- prison
to the Folsom railroad yards, tho only

While the engineer and braaemaii left
the engine to attend to sdme work about
the yardsMurphy, tpokf d vantage of their
absence and made the dash. No sooner
had the men reached a distance from the
locomotive where it was not likely that
tney could overtake him than he leaped
to the throttle and pulled it wide open
In lesponse to his touch the engine gave

When, the fugitive reached Alder Creek,
a dittance of several miles from the
prison, he stopped the engine and took
refuge in the dense underbrush along tne
bnk of the stream. As the brakeman
had no weapons he thought It useless to

with a long Iron bar. However, he at

Murphy was serving a sentence of three
years, having been convicted of a burg-larj-
committed in Fresno, and was not
looked upon as a desperate character
by the prison officials.
PLANS WELL LAID.
It is very evident that Murphy had his
plans well laid, . and was also provided
with plenty of money to assist him In
making his way through the country,
and irom all Indications there is not
much doubt but what he nas friends out
side who were prtpargi to help, bun con

make the break. A big posse was at ones

owing to the fact that they started so
soon after the escape It Is very probable
that he will be recaptured before he has

DESPERATE PLANS DISCOVERED.
Murphy la the fourth prisoner to escape
In the last forty days, and tne- guards
have been on the alert for tntteation of
any more attempts. As a .result one of

the boldest plots for a wholesale deliv

state has been unearthed Just tn the nick
of time, for It was discovered that the
prisoners had made a desperate plan to
make a bold stroke, for freedom today.
It was one of the most daring projects
In the history of prisons, and the only
thing that prevented its being carried Into
operation waa the discovery by one ot
the guards of six daggers which bad In
some way been slipped to the prisoners
from the outside. It was the intention ot
those of the convicts who were to take
part . In the revolt to ' tike the daggers
In forcing the guards to walk with them
outside the lines, and when they had ar

would be concealed by the brush and
