A Bit Of the Pa.t * Hutched by tbe BUtorle Fen or l>a B McDonald How the Aborigine* Were Induced to Vacate. In his very interesting addition to tbe pages of local history Editor Dan McDonald, the pioneer of Northern Indiana journalism has contributed many bits of matter of local interest. In his current contribution to his excellent "Remlnosconccs" he has some thing concerning the removal of the Poltowattomles from which the fol lowing la taken. It is a significant bit of history and will bo read with interest by many of the pioneer res idents of this county. "Chief Po-ka.gon, now residing at Hartford, Michigan, in a recent interview at the request of the writer of these sketches, in relation to tbe ex ecutlon of these treaties, says that the government, during the fall of 1837 sent for, and provided means for the transportation and expense to Wash ington and return, of Sin a-qua, Me nom-e^nee, Black-wclf, Ben-neck and his father, Leopold Po-ka-gon, with John and Adam Burnett, both part French, as inteprelors. These chief went on horseback to the Ohio river at a place called Willing. From there they Btraod It to Baltimore, whoro they took the railroad to Washington They remained at Washington all winter and utterly refused to sign any deeds for their lands in the vicinity of Plymouth. In the spring- moans was furnished them to go home with, and they were asked tJ sign receipts for the same, which they did, and lr, stead of being a recipt it turned out to bo a deed, or treaty, for their reservation in Marshall county. He says the chiefs all thought that the inter, pr. ters wore bought to interpret falsely; that the government officials wpre innocent as well as the chiefs, but that some party was to receive so much from the government to persuade the Indians to convey their lands. At any rate the interpreters wore well supplied with money after they left Washington. The old Indian, Wab-sy, now over 110 years old. cor- •ebonites this statement, which was often told him by his father and mother. Sin-a-qua, he says, frequently told him how the Indians were captured and fastened In the chapel near Twin Lakes, bound and aken West. He, Sin-a-qua, knew all ibout It, as he was one of the cap- Ivos. 'Col. Pepper and Gen, Morgan were ent out by the government with au- horlty to take such steps to carry out he fraudulent treaties as might be deemed necessary. Some time was pent by them in the use of moral sua- lon, but the leaders were too obstl- late to yield to the arguments ad. •anced. and refused to go. The gov- rnment Indian agent called a council o ascertain what, if anything, could IB done to Induce the Indians to go without using force. This council was held, it has been stated by some who say they were present, near the orth bank of Pretty Lake, three miles southwest of Plymouth, and that he orator who spoke for the Potta- wattomles, was Me-nom.e-nee. Ho was tbe head chief of bis band, and as ine a specimen of physical manhood ,s his race produced. When Col. •eppermade the final appeals and hreat of force, and all had had their ay, Me-nom-e-nee rose to his feet and rew his costly blanket about him, howlng below his splendidly worked egglngs and mosoasins, his head towering above those around him, he aid In substance: 'The Preside*! does not know the ruth. He, like me, has been Imposed upon. He does not know that our treaty is a lie and that I never igned It. He does not know tbat you made my joung chiefs drunk and got heir consent and pretended to get mine! He does not know that I have refused to sell my lands and still refuse.

If he know the truth. My brother, the President, is just; but he istens to tho words of his young chiefs who have lied; and when he knows the ruth he will leave me to my own.

CALL AND SEE THEM at 417 Market St Finding that no amount of persuasion would induce them to go, Gen. Tlpton, of Logansport, was appointed moving agent, and vrag furnished a company of troops from Logansport, one from LaParte, one from South Bend, and one from Lafayette. The troops were secreted In the neighborhood of the He nom-e-nee village, and while a council was being held in tke little hapel between the Indians and the moving agent and his assistants, the doors were suddenly closed and fas- ened, the building surrounded and _11 inside and out were by the soldiers made prisoners and their arms taken away from them. •On Sunday before this outrage was committed upon the Indians, many of the white residents of the county paid them a visit at their vll- age and camping grounds, and bade them farewell. There were several mndred, about one hundred of whom were sick, and really unable to go. A catholic priest from South Bend was present and hold services in the Utle chapel. The scenes in the ihapel, and everywhere in the little village, were affecting in the extreme, and sufficient to melt a heart of itone." The Wwld'n Fair Art Portfolio*.

A Menutlonal Report ConeeralBK the Hlchwir Bobbery of G. Dallas Cu«ter-Aro the B«y» •«" Cl«n* Bnral Returned? It Is reported and upon pretty good authority, tbat Mr. G. Dallas Ouster. the well-known gentleman farmer and horseman, was hold up and robbed OB the public highway the other night. According to the report ho met with three base.bad.bold highwaymen np on the pike last Monday night while returning home, and was then and there boldly and deliberately, feloniously and maliciously and with msllce prepense, held up and robbed of a considerable •urn of money, towlt: |64 of good and lawful coin of the realm. Strangely enough Dallas did not report the case to the police, nor did he so far as can be learned, give the c»se over in the hands of local detectives. According to the story that has gained circulation. and upon which there seems to be some grounds for credence there were three men implicated in the robbery. Dallas was driving borne in a road cart. Just beyond the city limits he was held up. According to the story alleged to emanate froa the victim one of tbe robbers, tbe one which grabbed the horse's head, wore •rhlskors. The others wore masks. These are deeply ilgnlflcant circumstances. Whiskers and masks! Could anything be more conclusive? After he bad-been held up a proper ane sufficient time to deprive him of his then present supply of wealth, namely |64, Dallas was released and ordered to move on. It is currently reported that he moved. It is not unlikely that he did. Who wouldn't move under the circumstances P Who wouldn't? Nobody! It is therefore not unlikely that Dallas moved. One of tbe evening papers iay» that on the authority of a very dear friend of the desolated victim ' -no attempt will be made to capture the highwaymen." Oh. there won't?; Well, that'* too bad. Why will no effort be made? Was Dallas robbed? The same evening paper »ays: "Mr. Cuiter could not be found." Poor Dallas ! He ii probably loit lower. The police have no official notlfl^a- tlon of this helnoui and altogether dastardly bit of highway robbery. Dallas, were you robbed? Oranges 10 ocntt per down at Both* ermel'i
