6. Newspaper: Fergus County Democrat: Slocum Stops Jail Break, 2 Nov 1916, Lewistown, Fergus, MT, USA. 10 ---
The sharp eye of Deputy Sheriff Guy Slocum undoubtedly frustrated an attempt at a jail break at the county bastile, to be undertaken in a few days. Some time ago one Mike Murphy, an I. W. W., and the reputed leader of the organization in this section, was arrested at Grass Range on a charge of attempted robbery. Yesterday morning three men, E. A. Simpson, J. Kelly and Parnell Donovan visited the sheriff's office and asked to see Murphy. Mr. Slocum accommodated them and on getting to the cell, Murphy asked to be let out into the corridor. This was refused as unnecessary and Murphy then asked the men to come to the end of his cell, where they talked. While this was going on Murphy slipped a note to Donovan. He was quick and clever about it, but neither quick nor clever enough to prevent the officer from seeing it and in an instant he was upon Donovan and took the note away from him. It read:
Plan a Jail Break.
"Red -- We are going to try and get out of here. I wish you or Jimmy would get about four hack saws. You could pass them in through the second window next the Milwaukee track through a hole in the screen, say 9:45 p. m. I will be there. Tie them on a piece of stick, so they will clear the radiator inside. Or you could put them in Prince Albert tobacco cans. Tie them with a string; cut the tobacco, so they would fit in nicely, like it never was touched. They never examine anything that comes in. There is a fellow going out on the first name of Collins. A medium sized man, about 45 years old, with red mustache. Wears a heavy dark mackinaw. Look for him at the saloon. He will be on the lookout for you. He can give you all tlie dope. It will be best to gel the saws out of town, say Moccasin, or you may get them at the roundhouse, if you get next to some boomer machinist. I seen a lawyer. He told me last Friday that he could get me out with a jail sentence of 30 days. I offered him $100. I haven't seen him since. You can go and see him and see what he is going to do or what he wants. I would not go out of here if there was any show of getting off witli a jail sentence, as the getaway isn't going to be easy. If he can't do anything, find out about the trains out of here. Get folders of G. N. and Milwaukee and get some chuck for us. There will be four of us, but I think I'll go alone. We will go the night you put the saws in or the next, if you put them through the window. Diamond Bryar is a good brand of saw."
