Sheriff Oeligrath Suprised.
was very much surprised yesterday morning to learn that
a prisoner had escaped or gotten away from the county
jail Thursday about 5 o'clock and that he had not been
apprised of the occurrence, although he stayed at home
about the jail during the evening. The new warden
of the jail, Isaac Benton Marshall Ho_shall, and
the night watchman. Elijah M. Price, both
knew of the escape, but did not think it worth while to
notify the Sheriff, as it was hoped that hte prisoner
would come back.
The warden informed the Sheriff about 7 o'clock
yesterday morning of what had happened. The
escaped prisoner did not break jail, but walked off
unmolested. It has been the custom for some time
to take a prisoner, charged with some minor offense, out
to do chores about the building, keeping him under
surveillance. George Williams, colored, who
was indicted for larceny December 10, the man who got
away Thursday, had been working on the outside during
the last few days of the term of Sheriff Todd. He
had been committed for the action of the grand jury but
had not been indicted when Sheriff Oeligrath took
charge, and the new official made no change.
Shortly before walking off Thursday Williams
borrowed 25 cents from the cook.
After the warden found that the man had gone he waited
until Night Watchman Price came on duty and told
him he thought Williams had only gone up in the
town and would come back.
The next heard from Williams was that he had
been seen in Baltimore Thursday night by Sargeant
Carberry, as stated in THE SUN yesterday. Had
the Sheriff been promptly informed and notice of
Williams' disappearance sent out the fugitive
would probably have been arrested.
Patrolman A. J. German, of Towson, who was told
about the escape on Thursday night after making inquiry
in response to a Message from the Canton Police Station,
said yesterday he had taken none into his confidence
because he thought that such matters were never divulged
until the fugitive is arrested. He said the
officials at the jail had expressed themselves as
desirous of keeping the incident quiet.
The police description of Williams, who has not
yet been recaptured, is as follows:
George Williams, colored, alias Charles
Jacock, alias Wolcot, age 33 years 160 pounds
short and stout build, long, wooly hair, wore doark
brown overcoat, dark-grayish pants when last seen had no
hat on. This man is a piono player and pugilist.
