ThreatT Flood Cell House And
Starve Prisoners Forces
Their pulation
(By Associated Press)
FOLSOM, Cal., Nov. 25-Hopelessly
beleaguered by a force of nptional
guardsmen and civil officers equipped
with weapons of war, revolting con-
victs at the state prison here meekly
surrendered here, ending a mutiny in
which 11 men were killed and more
than a score wounded.

shat the cell house in which 1200 of
the prisoners were barricaded would
be flooded and that the rebels would
be starved out contributed to the col-
lapse of the mutiny, but the deadly
accuracy of riflemen stationed on a
hill overlooking the prison was the
principal factor in the capitulation.
Eleven Lose Lives
Nine convicts Knd two prison
guards lost their lives in the pitched
battle waged yesterday between the
rebellious prisoners and the besieg-
ers. 17 convicts were wounded and
four guards injured.
Six convicts declared by the warden
to have been the ringleaders in the
uprising were placed in solitary con-
finement. Murder charges will be filed
against them, Warden Smith declared. i
Only a few of te 1200 prisoners in
the cell house were actively involved
in the outbreak, which started late
yesterday morning, the warden said.
The others were intimidated by the
The surrender came this morning
after Warden Smith had communi-
cated over the telephone with two
spokesmen for the 'mutineers.
While 500 national guardsmen
equipped with machine guns, tanks,
sawed-oi shotguns, tear bombs and
one-pounders, and 200 heavily armed
civil officers commanded the cell
house, the convicts surrendered their
weapons to four guards who hd been
held as hostages.
The guards had not ,be ) injured
and carpe out of the building laden
with weapons, including two pist.s,
an ax, and a number of knives.
In quick order the convicts then
were sent totheir cells.
No Hostilities At Night
There had been no hostiitie dur-
ing the night, fighting having flared
out after the ammunition of the con-
victs ran low and the attacking forces
had turned a hail of machine gun
bullets into the cell house yester-

prisoned guards would be killed and
feeling that the mutineers were weak-

buildings, but warned that they were
ready to resume action in the event
Of further overt acts on the part of
the convicts.
Warden Smith was called on the
telephone from the turnkey's office by
an apparently well-educated prisoner,
whose identity could not be learned,
but who wanted an agreement that if
the convicts surrendered they would
not be abused. This was agreed to.
Then the spokesman asked assur-
ance that ringleaders would not be
hanged. The warden told him this was
ridiculous, and it was finally agreed
that the men would surrender on
condition that those placed on soli-
tary confinement would not be kept
on read and water but would be
given one mal a day.

The warden demanded to speak to
one of the leaders and eventually an-
other prisoner came to the telephone
and made arrangements for surrend-

Prisoners Saw Futility
FOLSOM IRISON, Cal., Nov. 25 -
1-lore than 1,000 inmates of the Fol-
som penitentiary, the harboring place
of "two-time' losers," appeared to
realize tonight that defiance of the
law is just as futile and dangerous
inside prison Walls as it is outside.
The realization causeddthe surren-
der of the embattled convicts 'after
a 20-hour siege by forces of the law
numbering a thousand, resulting in
the death of 11 men, two of them pris-
on guards, and the wounding of 31.
The convicts staged their riots within
the walls of their cell house.
