A Kieff correspondent of the
St. Petersburg Journal gives the
following account of the eutbreak:
The prisoners in Kieff resolved,
some time ago, to tunnel the wall
and escape. The scheme was be
trayed by one of the conspirators,
and the authorities allowed the
prisoners to continue the excava
tion. "When the tunnel was com-
pleted and the entrapped prisoners
had entered it, one after the other,
intending to come up through the j
opening beyond the prison pre
cincts, soldiers previously posted
at the opening, shot the prisoners
as they appeared. "When the bul)c
of the prisoners, terrified by the
noise of the firing, stopped and re
mained in the tunnel, the soldiers
were sent in from behind, and
the unfortunate wretches caught
between two fires, were all
shot down. The proceeding
seemed to give the officials
much amusement, and the direct
ors of the prison were praised and
decorated for having acted with
such cleverness and decision.
