THE ESCAPE OF CONVICTS. I Instructions to Officers. I The Prt-ss Association states that a copy is issued to-day, as a Parliamentary paper, of the standing instructions to officers of prisons in the event lof a prisoner attempting to escape. The instructions apt forth that in the case of a single or combined attack on officers the use of firearms would be jus billed to reptol attack if it cannob be overcome by other means. In the event of a convict attempting to escape, it is stated that there is so little chance of success when an immediate pursuit can be made, that the use of firearms would not be justified, but in case of necessity it is lawful to fhoot. The object of firing being mainly however to induce the convict to stop, it is 3dvised that the first shot at least should be wide of the mark, and blnb the second shot, if it be I necefesary, should be aimed low so as to avoid hitting a vital part. Such an extreme measure, it is added, as tiring under circumstances which might cause the death of a convict ought not to bu resorted to if without it the officers of the prison or the military have the means of suppress- Ing- resistance, of, in other words, without a jtr<i'vin" or urgent necessity.
