The Camp Morton Controversy. INDIAXAFOLIS, Ind., April S.—Col. W. R. Holloway, who was Gov. Morton's private secretary during,the war, makes the following reply to the statement of Dr. Wyeth sent from New York: "I assert that every material statement made "by Mr. Wyeth in tne Century magazine concerning the necrlect of prisoners at Camp Morton is absolutely and unqualifiedly false, and that I will be able to prove them so from official sources. There are hundreds ot men still living who are thoroughly familiar with all that occurred at Camp Morton during the time and ii might be well for Dr. Wyeth to await my reply to Ms article before be supplements the Century article. It is evident to me that Dr. Wyeth, who, by tho way, is an eminent surgeon and an author of a standard work on surgery, intends to become the defender of the prison pens of the south and will attempt to excuse the crimes committed by his friends in tUeir .prisons by printing the most infamous falsehoods'about Camp Morton and perhaps* other northern priaon camps. I reiterate an assert in the most solemn manner that I wi be able to prove every material statement Dr. Wyeth to be untrue."
