The death of Andrew Johnson lia
given rise to much reflection, and it is
startling to sum .up the dead of ihe bril
liant circle that surrouuded the "great
commoner" when he was president.
Browning, one of his private secretaries,
remarkable for his accomplishments and
namely beauty, shut himself up In n
room and drank himself to death. Colo
nel Johuson, a sou of tho president, died
prematurely himself ills only enemy.
Slade. the door-keeper at the executive
maiiflou, died while Mr. Johnson w.i
still In oHlcc. Preston King, who was at
one time an lumato of the White
House, and a Arm friend to Mr. Johnson,
committed suicide In a temporary lit of
Win. 11, Seward, Mr. Johnson's Sutri
tary of State; and Mr. Stanton, both died
long since. Salmon P. Chase, who pre
sided over the impeachment trial; and
two of the associated justices, are resting

prominent men during tne days of .Mr.

The betrayer of the Ku-klux In Frank
im county la a blacksmith named Wil

to become u member of the klan, but sud
denly he revealed all to tho fearless llo-
gan, and the result of that revelation has
not yet lully culminated. Jacobs lived
on the edge of Crawford' prairie; had
heard ol the weird-looking men who
rode through that neighborhood, but
being an industrious and quiet man, kept
close to ids home and lorge. night mid
day. Jiuch work had accumulated on
his hands, and one nlghtt jm v:ia blow

The modest, 6ooty smith, with leather

"Stop! William Jacobs, you are a bad

With perspiration rolling down his
cheeks, and fear depicted on his face, ho
returned to the forge, and again sparks
flew high, and with every pulsation ot
the bellows tho weird forms of the mo
tionless Ku-klux were vividly revealed,
"Stop1. William Jacobs, you arc a bet

Again Jacobs stood before Uls persecu

show what the Ku-klux had dune in

that had been published in thu public
prints. It had been said that In thlx enin.
inuiilty lawlessness was the rule, and that
neither life nor property was safe ; that
tho peoplo were at thu mercy of bad men,
who robbed nnd murdered at will. He
spouo irom a varied experience with Ilio
condition of society in many other parts
of tho world, and would say that ho did
not know a more peaceful, quiet and order-loving
community than Franklin
county. True, trouble had rome, and
men and boys had transgressed tho laws,
but what community Is exempt from such
misfortunes? Notonoln all thu land,
and certainly suppression had followed
lawlessness as promptly lu Franklin as It
could have done elsewhere, even lu com
munities that bast the best

character oi this Ku-klux klan of Frank
lin, describing it in belngjn .its Inception
a hand of mischievous young men, who
lu sport had ridden over tho country,
playipff practical lokes, laughing nt theiu
at their leisure. This man did not pay

they could not be identified. He then
gave u hlstorv of the Maddox difficulty
and thu raising of the militia company,

and expressed Ills belief that Ii ought to

rapped some of the people ol ltenton on
the action of the sheriff In the
MAtinnx t t.M. irrAtis.
The sheriff" had not taken with him
enough men, lu his opinion. Every one
or the night-riders might have been ar-re-ted
without the shedding of any blood,
lu concluding, he luain referred to the
correspondents u slanderer" of .the peo
ple of Franklin, and luhliedthein to pub
licly denounce Ihe lal-choods that had
been circulated bro.i U'a In the land by
them, and moved that a mass-incctlng hu
held next Saturday lor that purpose. Tho
motion was carried hv a unanimous vote.
C. C. M. V. H. Pavne, l.-q., of tho lit in
ol'l'nyiio William?, attorneys at law,
then offered the following resolutions:
Whereas, On .Monday, August 10, the
sheriff of Franklin county, with n posse
ot about twenty men. met n baud ot dis
guised men oii Crawford's prairie, and
had n conflict with said band which re
sulted lu thu capture of one of theni on
the ground, and tin wounding of the en
tire party more or less, im also the
Miiiug ami wounding oi several Horses ;
Whereas. On account of tho disturb
ances and the apprehensions of some of
the citiciis ol our county caused bv said
dlguled hand riding ov r the county in
the night time, ordering certain p.niUs
to do cerla.as acts, or to cea.-c certain
practices, a citizen of our county went
to Sprlnglle! I. and the governor author
ized hitii :ts aptaln to organize n mili
tary company to assist thu sheriff' in ar
resting the members of said baud : and
Wherea-. The governor alter ho had
shipped KU Uuds of arms to thU coun
ty, wrote to the sheriff' advising the
propriety of ral-Ing a military company
to nslst hi'ii in making such arrests;
Whereas. Mid military company!?, now

the sheriff'; and
vv"lierca. Mid company Is now costing
$200 per daj ; and
Whereas, l'licre nro no wno hotllo dtf
nioiitratioi.s by said band ; therefore,
l!cHled. liv this meeting, that in our
opinion said military company is too un
wieldy for chVetivu service lu arresting
the member.- of said baud.
I'esolved, 1 urtber. that in our opinion
tho sheriff' and Ids po?so are fully able to
arrest all panics who violate tliii public
peace, and th.it said military organiza

to preserve tin1 auie.
Itesolved, 1 iti ther, that the her!lV be
