THROUGH THE WALL ,
Jim ( Juan Motes a Break and Escape
from the City Jail ,
3nrnIcssiicHH of the Keepers nnil
FaullB In the JJulldiiiK.
Jomos Quanwho was lodged in the city
ail on Wednesday nltjht , was not thor
'estorday morning. Quan had boon hold
o await the action of the grand jury
ho charge being pocket-picking , and
iail being fixed at § 500 , which amoun
Juan was unable to furnish and was
lioroforo looked up. Ho is ono of the
liroo who are thought to have relieved
Ir. Blamford , of Hod Cak , of § 100 in
iah and a § 05 gold watch and chain ,
'ho prisoner denied the robbery , and
lalmed to bo a good honest bricklayer ,
rho hod boon at work on the Proaby-
orlan church. When arrested hoiad
bout $55 , of which $45 was claimed
y him to have boon won in gambling at
acy's. When put back into jail Wodnea-
ay night ho was not looked up in a cell ,
ut with other prisoners was allowed the
30 of the corridor , the reason given bo-
ig that sonio windows being broken ,
tore w&s difficulty in keeping the cellu
arm. The marshal and his deputy , there
ro Guanollas , say they were up and on
10 watch until about 1 o'clock , when the
risonors seemed to have quieted down
ir the night. After they had gene to
id it seems that Quan took advantage
: a gap ut ono end of the corridor and
owding through this got on top of the
ills , and from thence dropped
jwn into a narrow walkway which
iparatcs the colla from the outer wall ,
id entrance to which walk-way from
ID main corridor is prevented by an
on door. With only a brick wall bo-
roon him and liberty Quan soon proved
msolf to bo acquainted with brick-
ork. Prying oil the window crossing
> quiokly removed the bricks , and
rough the hole in the wall thus made
> skipped out. His escape was not dis-
ivorod until yesterday morning. The
her prisoners innocently donlod hav-
g hoard anything or having known
lything of the jail break ,
The Guanollas are to bo censured for
it having locked the prisoner in a cell
for not having taken him to the county
il , whore ho properly belonged. On
o other hand they claim that the atton-
jn of some of the aldermen had boon
lied to this defect in the structure of
o jail and the necessity of having it
cod , but it had been neglected. It
ems , therefore , that the fault of the
capo rests upsn the carelessness of the
sopors and the faultitioss in the Btruc-
ro of the jail.
Quan is said not to have any
0 good a record. It is said that
1 was the ono who planned and
lined carry out the jail tiroak at Das
olnos , by which about twelve prisoners
capod. By his own story ho has boon
ting as much in the gambling line hero
ho has in the mason line , though it is
oved that for four days ho really did
y brick on the walls of the now Presby-
rian church. Olllcors were sent out

A Merchant Relieves a Burglar of
A Costly MliInlRlit Visit.
A few days Mr. 0. 0. Foil , of the
wholesale heavy hardware house of Koo-
line it Felt , in taking with the manngoi
of the establishment , Mr. Ed. Elain ,
said that ho had noticed n follow hanging
about in the vicinity of Ilia homt , No.
725 , Seventh nvonuo , and ho fancied that
an attempt might bo made to burglarize
it. llo accordingly borrowed Mr. Elain'a
revolver , and for eovcral nights has boon
on the alert. Yesterday morning when
Mr. Felt carao down to tlio store ho was
wearing a largo , elegant gold watch and
chain , something now , and more aston
ishing than all else , na was explained
with a laugh , ho had boon awakened by a
burglar in his room the night before and
Instead of being robbed ho had robbed
the burglar , and the gold watch and
chain was shown up as proof. It Booms
that Mr. Felt on being awakened in the
night found a burglar going through his
clothes and aa Mr. Felt jumped up and
grasped the revolver , started to run with
Mr. Felt following. As the follow
passed out of the door , Mr. Felt hoard
something drop on the lloor , nd found
that it was this gold watch and chain.
The follow managed to irmko good his
escape , but instead of taking any plunder
with him , ho'lost his watch and chain ,
the value of which is estimated at about
$300. The strangeness of the afl'uir has
led Mr. Felt's friends to jocosely add to
the sensation by narrating that
Mr. Felt finding the burglar in his
room , jumped onto him , took his watch
and chain from him , and then throw him
out of the honso. The affair rovivoa the
story of a burglar who found ho had got
into an editor's honso , but discovering
the mistake , got out just in time to keep
from being robbed , but it seems hardly
fair to saddle a like story , only worse , on
to a solid business man. The affair is
sensational enough without any such ad
ditions , and the mystery remains what
the burglar will do to recover the watch
which ho thus dropped in his ( light. If
ho calls for it , ho will surely moot
with a warm reception. Ho will probably
bo content with getting away as ho did ,
urn will make up the loss by robbing
lomobody else of another gold watch , but
lowovor this may bo , Mr. Felt is certain-
y ahead about § 300 by the burglar's
