JOHNSTON'S NICE WAY. s Such as to Make Him Popular With Prison Officials 'orther Investigation of Prison Management by the Indianapolis Sews. The special correspondent of the ndianapolis News who i» making an nvestlgatlon of the treatment ac- orded prisoners at the Columbus Denitentiary, contributed another olumn yesterday prison affairs and ncidentally speaks of the privileges •ranted John F. Johnson. He states hat -'Johnson does not have to march in the squads with the other )rlsoners. He does not associate with the other prisoners at all. un- ess with prisoners of his same class, nd except that, he is deprived of his iberty, he fares as well as he would utslde. He is in every respect a model prisoner, and by his actions ias won the respect of all the officers and guards." "The Indiana colony," be says, "is a pretty good sized one, and all its members seem to be doing well, from a convict's stand-point. The United itates prisoners are not compelled to jo certain kinds of work, and thus bey fare better than the ordinary un of convicts, but none of tbem ares as well as John F. Johnson." The Investigation that has been set foot, la due largely to reports *hlch have gone out from this city etting forth that Juhnson had been ^ranted privileges of an extraordinary character—that he was permit- led to go outside the prison walls un- iccompanled by a guard, &c. Mr. Emmett the marble dealer was quoted by the Keporter as saying that on a visit to the prison Johnson was permitted to accompany him for several squares. Mr. Emmett insists that he was misquoted and stated to ihe Pharos today that he told Mr. Small Jhortly afterward at Twell's cigar store that he had misquoted 3im and that he ought to correct it. Mr. Small srates that Johnson accom- Daniedhim"aplece" down the walk on nis departure from the prison and that the impression was left on His mind that -'9 piece" meant several squares There is where the whole trouble comes in. The distance of''a piece" is indefinite.There would have been no trouble if the reporter for the Reporter had made no jflort to expand this indefinite phrase. It should serve as a lesson to reporters and hereafter when some men walks -'a piece" with another man it should not be interpreted to mean "several squares." Death of J. A. J. Popfj«y. Yesterday Kev. B. E. Shaner was called to Eockfield, Indiana, to conduct tbe funeral services of John Andrew Jackson Popejoy. loter ment was made at the Mount Nebo church, about two miles from Camden.

A committee of Logansport citizens, somposed of Judge Dykeman, Superintendent Walton, of the Panhandle, Judge 'Nelson, I. N.Craw- ford, Jobn E. Barnes and Fred' A. Dykeman, visited Chicago last Monday to investigate the standing and presentcondition of a manufacturing concern, which will shortly change its location to some city In the vicinity of Chicago. For obvious reason the name of the concern is not given, but It may be said that the industry is a cesirable one and that it gives employment to 1,000 people. It is such a manufacturing establishment as would add greatly to the growth and prosperity of Logansport. The members of the committee after a careful Inspection of the bus! ness of the concern are unanimously in favor af doing everything possible to secure its location here. At whatever point the firm may decide to locate a stipulated donation in land and cash will be required. A representative of the company will be in Logansport next month to look around and learn what Inducements we have to offer in the way oj railway facilities, manufacturing sites and educational advantages. 1C favorably impressed with what he sees and learns while Here, the prospect of securing the plant will be greatly improved.

"I'LL WALK "With any Nigger, A'int C'arin' His Figure, \Y lint's 1'se "Tantalizln Ways Don't C-iunf, if •Got L«t.s of Room''—The 'Jake Walk. The much-talked-of colored cake walk occurred at the rink last night, and it was not even a burlesque on the real thing. The affair was arranged by Chafes Jones, a local bar- her, and Prof. (?) Robinson acted as master of ceremonies. Five couples participated, and, with the exception of one woman, all reside at Marion. There were nearly 200 people (black and white) present to witness the entertainment. The opening number was by a quartette, whose voices blended about as smoothly as would the tones of .a grind organ and a fog horn. Nekt came an exhibition of buck and wing dancing by little Miss Gertie Worthington and Master Clifford Robinson, which was fairly good. J. P. Sebastian, James McKague and A. D. Fdnsler were chosen as judges of the cake walk. Clifford Robinson and Gertie Worthington was the only couple who kept step during the walk, and the cake was awarded to them. Although the judges did not take the precaution to ask the walkers to disarm before announcing their decision, they escaped violence.
