Residents were greatly excited   Talieoiichi. --  and formed a posse. Ed. Stickncy is' McCarty, Stick'ncy and Malone  reported to have been seen naked " worked through '* into Wade's cell  near HigiRinK. ;heach, ���������some miles* from From theie they broke through the  Steilacoon. He explained that he had ��������� the floor r^ito the cell ���������above, which'  fallen in the water and was dryiing | was occupied by Leslie. They' were  his clothes. J. H. Malone, another of joined by Castle, Moor and Takcou-  the eight, is said fo have been rowed chi. With the united efforts of the  across Hood's canal last night by eight men it'was an easy task to  three Seattle men who were camping force the sheet steel plates which cov  at Sealiecl.-, and did  not know  of  the  er Mie roof and get on  the outside.

Country settlements  .**u*o greatly alarmed, recalling the ler  ror caused j*,y Tracey.  Warden Halligan says he is unable  to account for the escape of the men  and   does   not understand   how   they'  could have carried  en the  work     cf  cutting through the     walls without  attracting     some  attentioji.     ' The  walls ^between the cells were of brick  and the men had to cut through  six  of these ihcfore they gained their free  dom.   Warden Halligan believes thai  the  prisoners  were aided  from      the  outside by-prisoners who'were*    recently  released from the orison.  George Waxlc is believed to have  been the leader of the affair. He is  regarded as one of the most desperate men in the prison and has a bad  record. He was arrested in 1001 for  smuggling. While waiting trial he escaped, but was soon captured and  sentenced to one year in prison, lie  escaped, hut was captured and served the full term.  July,      1904, he w-a������ again arrested  for  smuggling   and was sentenced   to  two   years in   prison. He made      another escape three months later and  was not captured.   The next the author it-ics^   heard of him   was when  he  was fieh't to prison from Alaska, six  months ago to serve a sentence     for.  grfu'td- larcency.  It is supposed that the prisoners  got out about midnight, but they  were not missed until six o'clock  thjis morn ing. Guard Roberts,, who  was on duty in the corridor, noticed  that the men were missing from one  the cells,. anil--air investigation disclosed   the wholesale   jailbrcak.  Tlie     prisopers who..escaped** were  confined  in cells   in   the second'    and,  An      examination 'of the   premises  showed that the men made a wide de-  four  fo reach  the  water front. They  disable!   the prison   launches   so that  they co.tild ml   lie   pursued,  took the  only two     rowlioats  and got away  under cover  of  darkness. . The  two.  boats were new and very fast. -One"'  is.    a twenty-foot   'boat,   lap" seam,"'  painted  while  with  the letters" USP  burned  in   tlie  stern .over  the scat..  The other boat is of the same build  and  painted  lead  color. 'Both   have  four oars.  The theory is that thei men*- will  make for Port Madison and irom  there go to - Port fJamble. and Port  Townsend and ship on an\out-vessel.  This is the route, followed'-by* Wade  when lie escaped from 'thc-prison  onee before. , .,   ,        .  The officers believe. that, tlie men  rowed as far as.they couhb before  daylight and during the day were in  hiding in the heavy undergirowth  which covers a large part of the  f hoie down the .Sound. With'this belief a close watch hits been kept at  as many points along the shore as  possible" all day.���������'"' '""''"'"  "'"'"'  In   Tacoma   the entire  police  force  and  deputy ..sheriffs have been guarding every possible entrance to     the  city  to  preclude  tlie possiblity s*   of  the men getting in here and finding a  temporary hiding place.    The force is  scattered   all  along  the shore     .line  from Point   Defiance   to   ������?feilacdom.  -Guard  Roberts  is  a new man, but  the  ofli.c'tafls  cannot ^ understand how.  he      could have   missed   hearing the  men-as.they- made- their escape.' He  passed by" the cells several times, but  says  that he heard not  the slightest  sound all night.:;    L;'|.    .Ur, :[  The     sporting cluls of Ladysmith  will  lie well   represented  at.

THE* L'fTV OF ODESSA,  ONT   THE  BLACK   SEA  of the  of soutnern  the  Odtssa is the principal Russian port  on tlie Black    yea, and is the centre  rain     traflic for the sleppis,  >-sia.   H is the greatest  wheal handling port in the world,  at one time handled the whole wheat  trailic of tbe     Black Sea; but of late  years NicoluietT,     Taganrog-and R0.s-  toli have established themselves in the  trade.   The     harbors uf the city are  formed by a great Lreakwatei runnin*-  across'the     mouth of a shallow ba,y  and along the     silore lie a system of  quays.   As     many as tJwentyrfivc ocean going ships have been tied up on  inside of  this   breakwater await-  their      turn at the quays    At   a  ���������short distance from      the water land  rises abruptly and runs off as a bench  at an  ' elevation of about     200 feet  above, the water     and on  this  bench  the main city is situaled.   Along  the  water front is the     customs huuse   a  few other  public  buildings,   anda linr  ������>f railway.   From   the waterfront lo  the main city there is one great stair  way and two road ways, cut through  the ���������   rock.   Along   Mhe bluli' on  Uie  "'est arc lined the houses of tlte Bn't-  is'i     )esidents and     if the Mutinous  sailors  were to     turn loose the guns  on the city these     would afford them  capital  targets.   On     the east is the  house of the"    military governor "who  by  ihe way     is a very capable man,  the host they ever .had.   A   boulevard  runs-along     the brow of the hill and  hack of that again and parall'el with  it lVthe    Doribus, the main street of  the city.   In a     general way Odessa  can be called     a fine city,' the buildings bcing'made of stone.   The population" is about     350',000,     of which  some 1-25,000 are Jews, it being tne  point of exodus     for them when fleeing from their persecutors.'  'I he great  industries  are the manufactories      and the     shipping, about  one half*    of     the latter/hieing in.the  hands of the Biitish.   Of Jewish massacres, in a general way Ihey arc the  fault ofthe Jews who defy the Russians, "and    ;ihen trouble begins, and  it is not a pleasant sight,   The Russians '   crowding  through   tbe  street  distinguish      their own     people by a  cross hung on  the door.   When there  is a riot the Cossacks will ride through  the crowd  totally     indifferent  of  whom they    trample under foot, laying about- -them with  their gerkas  riding     whips of the black snake  riety.
