PROBABLY DNTROE Are the Stories About Banker Johnson. Ex- Ohio StateJJonrnal and Ljlle Emmett Deny That He Was Outside the Prisou. Noi likely That Johnson Will be Transferred to Leaven worth. The stories about the alleged privileges enjoyed at the Columbus, Ohio, penitentiary by Ex-Banker John F. Johnson, continue to be discussed In the papers. IE speaking of the investigation being made by government detectives,the Columbus, Ohio, State Journal of last Friday, says: OHIO STATE JOURNAL . "Among the things complained of is the report that Johnson In company with A. C. Ady had been permitted to attend one of the theaters Another was that he had been, allowed to accompany a friend to the Union station. Still another was tnat he had been allowed to go to one of the hotels for the purpose of having a deposition taken in a case in which he was Interested. "These were the grave complaints, but In addition to them It was also charged that he was permitted to take his meals apart from other and ordinary prisoners; that he is given the full privileges of the front office of the prison, and Is frequently seen outside the prison walking along the street in front of the institution: and that he is permitted to dress like an ordinary citizen so that persons visiting the institution would not recognize him as a prisoner. "Investigation of the first three grave complaints falls to reveal any truth whatever In them. He could not have attended either of the theaters with Mr. Ady without the latter being recognized. No such incident of his accompanying a friend to the depot can be verified, and in reference to the taking of depositions, It is well known that they were taken in the front office ot the prison. "In regard to the other charges, It is not at all concealed that he Is given liberties similar to those accorded E. L. Harper, Lewis Red wine and other distinguished United States prisoners. He Is treated as a trusty, Is _ employed in the office of Clerk Koehne In the outer office, and has the freedom of the front office, and may occasionally be seen outside the walls of the prison in the court yard fronting: on Spring street. He takes his meals with a few other prisoners in the basement under the warden's office, instead of in the big dining room, with the general body of prisoners. He Is now attired in a grey suit of clothes, known as the first grade uniform, and to the stranger might not be recognized as a prisoner. "Just what the secret service men learned while here, of course, is not kbown. but It is not probable that any recommendation for transfer to Leavenworth, Kansas, will be made." LOGANSPOKT STORY EXPLODED. It is believed in Logans port that the story a.bout Johnson being allowed to leave the prison had Its origin In a sensational newspaper article published In the Daily Reporter of this city. Early In October, Lylie Emmett, the monument dealer, visited Johnson at the Columbus prison. Upon his return home, the Reporter quoted him as having said that when he was about to leave the prison, Johnson asked him to wait, and putting on his hat, wa^ed with him, Emmett, to the depot. This story was republished in different papers In the state, and not being contradicted, was accepted as true and may have been the cause of Judge Baker ordering an investigation of the case. That the story is wholly untrue, is shown by the following card from Mr. Emmett: Logansport, Ind., Dec, 20, 1897. To whom It may- concern:—The statement made by the Logansport Reporter on or about Oct. 2d, as to John F. Johnson leaving the premises of the Ohio penitentiary and walkln several squares with me, in. th city of Columbus, bad no fouadafcio whatever. Respectfully, L. EsniETT. Mr. Emmett'3 sta'temenCtaken 1; connection with wbat tne Ohio Stat Journal claims above, seems to ef fectually explode the sensationa stories that Johnson has been allowei to leave tbe prison. Even if he ma have had such privileges, it iscertaii that the notoriety given the case wil make a repetition Impossible In th future. FATHER, SON, GRANDSON. Three Generations of One Famil Practicing Law. The admission to membership o the Uasa county bar of Nathan O Ross, jr., makes three generations o the same family now practicing law In the Cass Circuit court. First 1 Judge N. O. Ross, admitted to th> bar fifty-nine years ago and who 1 probably the oldest active attorne; in continuous practice in the United States. Next comes bis son, Georgi E. Ross, who joined! the bar twenty one years ago and has practiced hen continuously since that time excep the four years he spent as judge ot th Indiana appellate court. Third in rank comes the grandson, Nathan 0. Ross jr.. a second year student at Colum bia law school, New York, and graduate of the Logansport high school. The young lawyer of the family is well educated, well read studious, and of excellent habits anc disposition. With these splendid equipments,and coming from a family of illustrious and successful practl tloners, he has a prospective future that seems bright Itdeed. A coincidence connected with tbe young attorneys admission to the bar by Judge D. H. Chase is the fact that tbe same judge admitted his father to the practice and f urcher that Judge Chase's father admitted the young man's grandfather to the bar in 1838.
