Call wel , chairman oC tile engrossing com-
mitee and leader or the opposition to the
bill , resented Wright's motion as n reflection

Wright changed his moton so that I pro- ,
posed that Iho bill be commltell hack to the
commitee or the whole for the purpose of
hlsttng the enactng clause , aUtl that the
senate hnmeJlatel go Into committee or the
whole for that purpose. The motion was
agreed to , and the Incident was closed.

LINCOLN , March 22.-Spedal-The ( ) tcst-
mony taken by the Joint commItee ( appointed
by tIme house anti senate to investigate the con-
dion and management or the state icniten-
ant jenlen-
tar ) ' covers about fifty pages of typewritten . .
manuscript and Is remarlcble chiefly for what
It does not contain Warden Iloner : certaInly
stands high with the convicts entrusted to
hIs custody . This fact stants out signIf-
canty plain In the testimony of every convict
examIned by the committee . Contractor DorIan -
Ian Is not ; seyerely dealt with , but some of
his foremn ard keepers como In for SOIC
hart raps. The tact sems to have been
pretty clearly IslablshtJ thal ( some prisoners
need discipline ant are \ Ilng to admit It.
l Is also quite clearly establshed that some
forms of punishment In vogue al the state
penitentiary are unnecessarily harsh , to say
the least , alhough the convicts who seem
to have Deco thc most severely dealt with
admit with a cheerful readiness that parhaps
( hey deserved all they get.
The Investigation two rears ago brought
Olt the fact that the favorite Corm or torture
at the state penItentiary consisted of placing
the convIct In the i'holc , " or thc dark cell ,
with his hands culled behind his back ant
drawn Ip"toworlllhe back or his neck with a
rope first passel around his neck In such a
lanner that ( every effort made by the man
undergoing punlshlent to lower hIs hands
Cram , the palnCul elevation drew the rope so
tightly behind his necl that suffocatIon would
ensm' The commltN then r.commended that
this form oC plnlshment bo dispensed with
The recommeldaton eeems t have been neg-
lectN to SOIO extent : but a new mode of torture -
Lure has been brought Into prominence. The
new mote Is more refitted In Its cruelty The
convict's hands are cuffed and a rope tel to
the gyves. Then the other enl of the rope \
passed over a pulley In the ceIling and the
convict haliet imp unt ( he can barely touch
the floor with his toes. lime Is left In thIs po-
sllon until he Is either sUlclenty punIshed
or he faints dead awa ) ' , In the latter case ho
Is let shown a bucket or water thrown over
him to revive him , and he Is then conduced
back to his cel ! or to a cot In the hospital ,
Imetmes with a kick In the ribs to aemon-
Ish hIm that he escaped with his life only
because his warden was one or the most humane -
mane people ! on earth. Very approprlitely ,
this form ot punIshment Is always admlnls-
toned In the hospital. I saves the trouble of '
carrying the convct , to that institution on a
stretcher 'toe ' { t I
HUNG UP DY THE WRISTS .
A convict n 'meil ? Holmes , sent to the penl-
tenlary sixteen , months ago from Madison

"I should judge abut two minutes I
fainted before I was let down. I felt as If t
some one had struck -mo over the ] bead 1

"What do you know about other convicts

ways ? "
"I know of three or lour cases , of men

BULLDOZED DY IllS GUAnD.

what your conduct warranted ? "
"No 1 don't think the punishment was
too severe. In tile first place the guard 1 was

Then 1 came back to him and said , 'Mi

Another convict examined by the com-
mleQ was one by the name of Ebrldgo
Gerry who la serving his thIrd term In the
Pemiitemmttaty. He has served under five dIfferent -
ent wardens-'Voodhurst , Wyman . Doreen ,
Nobes and Deemer-and consequently ho was
able to furnish the commlteo wIth several
very entertaining reminiscences of a blood-
curdling , halr.ralslnS. breath-taking tcscrlp-
tion . HIs testimony as to the present
warden was entirely favorable , but less must
bo said about the stories told wIth reference
to Deemer's predecessors. One of hIs personal -
sonal recolectons will bo of Interest to
readers who delight In the horrible In
literature. mony : He said In ' the course of hIs test-
"As far as the treatment of the convicts

I went right to work and worked there for an

of treatment , nol under Warden Nobes. "
But It Is not to b inferred that all the

SOMIlI COMPLAINED OF THE FOOD.
The ( ectimony of the convicts varied as
to the quality of the food furnished , but
most of them agreed that it was good and
wholesome , Some of the witnesses were
profuse In their praises of the' daily fare
spread before timemwhile , most of them
complaIned about the pudding , or " 4uff , " as
it is called in prison parlance. There 'was
one exception to the list of macn who had so
much to say about time bIll of fare. This
man was Convict Charles McGuire , sent
froma Omaha for three years , Concerning
lImo food served the men lie said :
"When I first got hero It was directly
after Mr. Beemer came in , and we got very
good meat and thin food was w'holesonte , ( hat

about three or four months , and timen it. be-
