Walla Walla, 'July 12. A brutal mur-

this afternoon, the victim being William
Ellis, and the murderer William Harri
son, both convicts. .The men were work

were about 40 feet apart. About 3 o'clock
the guard, lAugusi oienrioa, who was
occupying a cage In the center of the
mill, noticed tai commotion among the
convicts, near the' loom where Ellis was
worklitg. Suddenly Harrison grasped

Immediately loosened his grasp on Ellis
and dropping down behind a loom, crawl

some bale sacks. Ellis then walked over
to the overs.r's desk and fell on the
floor, Wood flowing from his wounds. The
wounded man was hurriedly taken to
the hospital, where it was found that he
had received knife wounds. One in the
breast pierced tho right lung, and one
passed entirely, through the liver. Ellis
only lived an hour. The men were on
bad terms, having had a quarrel several
days ago. Harrison was placed dn close
confinement. The officials of the insti

the falls was washed off and drowned.
As soon as the boat turned over, the
