Columbus, 0., Dec. 13, 1897. To the Editors of the Pharos: Dear Sirs:— I see that the Logans port Reporter has made the state mentthat John Johnson, tbe Logans port banker, now in the Ohio peni tentiary, was permitted to accompany some unknown individual to the depot in this city. Who that indl vidual Is I do not know, nor do I care; but as a matter of curiosity, : would like to know the incentive fo: telling such an untruth. There li not the shadow of truth in the state ment, as every person in this city who is conversant with the system o handling inmates of the Ohio penitentiary, will gladly certify In the first place, not i day passes that the prison is not visited in the way of business by a' least half a dozen newspaper re porters, and it is part of their duties to keep run of just such incidents as the one mentioned, and had there been any such thingoccurred it would have been hearlded from one end of the country to the other for political reasons, if for no other. Another thing that stamps the story as false, is the fact that it is generally known that any police officer can collect $50 for the return of an escaped prisoner and there is not a few thut would gladly make that sum by a little effort of the kind Indicated. Such stories are not otly unjust to the management of the prison, but tbey place Johnson in a wrong light before his friends in Logansport. There is no good reason why he should not be permitted to serve out his time in peace, so far as that is possible under the circumstances. He is paying the penalty for an offense committed, and he knows that it is severe enough without any additional burdens being placed on his shoulders by falsifiers, who are in no way benefitted by telling such stories. It is a well-known fact, not only to the prison officials, but to others who have business at the prison, that he has not been off state property since he reached that institution. It is understood that these sensational statements have been published in a newspaper owned by a man who claims to be a friend of Mr, Johnson, but • this is a case where any person would be justified in "praying for dellverence from his friends," for they are like the hyena in disposition. I know whereof I write, and for tlmt reason feel keenly the injustice that is done, not only the prisoner, but the administration of the prison. COLUMBUS. Jiotice. All members of the Ladles' Aid Society of St. Vincent de Paul church will please meet at their hall tomorrow (Wednesday) at 2:30 p. m. Election of officers will take place at this meeting. MRS. CHARLES SELEGUE, Sec'y.. M. E. CAitpioN, Director. The Weather. Unsettled weather tonight and Wednesday with showers In northern portion. Imported Perfumes. Of the very best quality at C. W. Graves' book store. EEMOV1NG THE INDIANS. A Casts Conntr Pioneer Recalls Important Brent tbe Isaac S. Clary, Sr., of Harrison Township, Went *fst With the Pottowattemies in 1838. Recently Dan McDonald, of tbe Plymouth Democrat, mads inquiries through the tharos as to the whereabouts of any person who assisted in the removal ot the tribe of Pottowat- tomle Indians from this section of the country in 1S3S. It was believed that all the participants in chat important event were dead. Now comes Isaac N. Clary, sr., an old and highly respected citizen of Harrison township, who states that he is one of the party who helped remove the Indians in 1838—fifty-nine years ago last September. Mr. Clary has kindly furnished the Pharos with the following brief recollections of the event: "7 was one of the number who assisted in removing the Pottowattomie loeians from Indiana in 183S,"said he. "I was then a boy 20 years old and went as a teamster, The Indians removed at that time numbered between 500 and 700. Gen. Morgan, of Rush county, was one of the ofBceni in charge and as I remember, Gen. Polfc had charge of the expedition. The Indian camp was on Horney's Bun, near Logansport, and the caravan left that point on the first da/ of September, 1838, moving westward. The caravan moved in wagons and on foot. The .- Indian men walked and hunted as they traveled. Dr. Fitch was not one of the party. Dr. George M. Jeroloman accompanied the party as physician In charge of the sick. There were about sixty wagons in the train and thb distance travenea each day was from seven to twenty miles. The caravan stopped where water was plenty. At night we slept Intents and In wagons The Indians were well treated by the removing: party. Some Indians escaped and came back and a good many died on the way. The Indians did not suffer for food or for other necessaries. The most prominent men I remember were John Burnett and Abraham Burnett. I do not know whether tbey were chiefs or not. We crossed the Illinois river north ot Danville and aassed through Springfield and Jacksonville,Ills. We crossed the Mississippi river at Alton, Ills., in an old shattered steamboat that was not are to be on the water. It took the iaravan two days to cross the river. We crossed the Missouri river at Independence, Mo. We left the Indians at a point near the Osage river, n Kansas, in the Osage reservation. The government furnished the Indians with a two years' supply of pro- visious at their new home. We were about sixty days making tbe overland ourney. A small party of Indians came up with the main party just as we reached the reservation." ADDITIONAL ITEMS. CHICAGO 3URKKTS at Received Dally by W. W. Milner, 6. A. R. Building.
