Illinois Penitentiary Ruin ed, Three Shot in Wild Demonstration. 3TATEVILLE PRISON, Joliet, III, Mar. 18—(UP)—Eighteen hun dred prisoners screamed a wlerd litany to the Incendiary flames which ruined Illinois' model prl son tonight, all but Lite famous "cheese box" cell houses ln which they were locked. Three prisoners were ahot, two critically, ln today's frenzied riot, wherein the felons applied torches to half a dozen prison buildings Including the great central din Ing hall. Two guards were beaten serious ly when caught ln the riot's first flareup. DAMAGE GREAT Damage was estimated at be tween $800,000 and $500,000. Fire men gave up all hope of saving any of th* buildings from the flames. No prisoners were believed to have escaped. A check was start ed to see if any had perished ln the shambles they, themselves had caused. Six of the ringleaders were toss ed into solitary confinement cub! cles, suffering from beatings they received at hands of guards. The other prisoners were locked tightly in their cells where they con tlnued to scream, curse and battle th* bars on their doors. Warden Henry C. Hill, Just re covered from an operation, only to be plunged into a series of riots and mutinies at the two state penltentarles here, said there was no possible chance of fur-ther outbreaks so long as his charges remained locked in. TO QO HUNGRY “I don't know how long we will have to keep them there." said the tight-lipped and ashen-faced warden. “I don't know when we can feed them. “They burned the mess hall, trampled all their food underfoot, and destroyed the kitchens. They did it themselves. I am sorry for them, but now they will have to wait for food and their usual liberties." The flaming buildings, housing the mess hall, paint shop, laundry, chair factory ,two kitchens, shoe factory, and machine shop cast an eerie glow over the whole square prison yard. Authorities said they believed a mexlcan convict had started most of the fires. He drained gasoline from prison motor trucks and sprinkled lt on the buildings to which he touched his torch. He was in solitary confinement, awaiting an attempt, by official* tomorrow to obtain sn arson Indictment against him. Y. M.
