CONVICTS AND GUARDS FIGHT IN PRISON RIOT

Jefferson City, Sep 13--- Three prisoners from Kansas City were wounded, one seriously and two prison guards were beaten severely when four convicts made a wild attempt to escape from the state penitentiary here today.
Shots were exchanged between the prisoners and the guards when the four convicts using guards as a shield made a wild dash for the gate of the prison which had been opened to let in a train of coal.
After beating the guards and wresting their guns from them they used other guards as a shield in their attempt to reach the gate. Other guards fired on them and after three of the four had been wounded they surrendered. All four are now in close confinement.

SAYS POVERTY CAUSED THEFTS

A warrant charging grand larceny was issued Wednesday morning against Mrs. Susan Fortner Francis, who was arrested at her home, No. 1603 Washington avenue, Tuesday night on a charge of stealing eight silk shirt waists from the Boston store, where she was employed recently as a clerk.

Mrs. Francis, who was known as Miss Scott, admits taking the shirt waists and sets up a plea of poverty. She said that her husband, Silas Fortner, is sick in bed at Jackson, Tenn., and is not expected to live. In order to support him and her little daughter, she said she was obliged to steal because she could not live on her income as a clerk.

When Detective Howard arrested her Tuesday night she wore one of the waists. At first she denied the thefts, but later made a confession.
