Amasa Johnson passed away Friday
at about 1 o'clock after a long illness
with cancer of the liver. The funeral
was held at the Johnson home Sun
day at 2 p. m., Rev. McKenzie of the
M. E. church officiating. The in
terment was at Oak Hill.
Deceased was the son of Rev. James
Johnson, a prominent Methodist
preacher of Indiana, who died about
seven years ago. His great grand
father was a pioneer of Kentucky in
the days of Boone and Kenton.
Amasa 's grandfather was captured by
the Indians when he was twelve years
old and with his brother two years
younger was taken across the Ohio
river into the wilderness more than a
hundred miles from the settlements.
The band having run out of provi
sions, two Indians were left to guard
the boys while the other Indians went
in search of game. Night came on,
the boys were tied and the Indians
lay down to sleep. About midnight
the elder boy succeeded in freeing
himself from the cords that bound
him. He quietly cut the thongs
that bound his brother, and they got
possession of the Indians' guns.
Standing within a few feet of the
sleeping Indians both took aim and at
a given signal fired, both shots were
effective and after a few struggles the
Indians were dead, apd the boys suc
ceeded in reaching home five days
later. Coming from such stock the
bravery and endurance of Amasa
Johnson, whose form was always
slender, can be well understood.
Captain Johnson grew to manhood
in Putnam County, Indiana", studied
law, was admitted to the bar and
came to Plymouth in 1858. In 1861
he enlisted in Co. D, Ninth Indiana
Infantry, was chosen captain and
served until the close of the war. He
was in all the hard fought battles
and long marches of that famous reg
iment, and no soldier left the army
with a better record than his..
After returning home he married
Miss Adelia Sherman, daughter of Dr.
N. Sherman of this city. To this
union were born four children, all of
whom are living. They are Mrs. Ida
Jost, of Seattle, "Washington, Mrs.
Carrie Baker, of Fort "Wayne, Ind.,
Mrs. Edith Seward and Sherman
Johnson of this city. His wife and
one sister also survive.
Captain Johnson was one of the
most prominent real estate lawyers o?
northern Indiana. He was a man of
sterling integrity and had hosts of
friends. He was joint representative
of Marshall and St. Joseph counties in
the legislature of 1869, was three
times mayor of Plymouth, was a mem
ber of the city council and was never
defeated when a candidate for. office.
He was for more tha:i forty years a
prominent member of the Methodist
church of this city.
Two months ago he was seemingly
overcome with heat while at work in
his office; liver and kidney trouble set
in and all the efforts of his physicians,
family and friends were unavailing.
He was taken to St. Joseph hospital
at Fort "Wayne Monday, August 26,
but at the end of a week the physi
cians decided that there was no hope
for him and he came home to die.

lumber region and ruled the section

BEWARE OF THE LAW.
Local Hunters Must Obey the Require
ments of New Law.
Now that the fall hunting season is
about at hand it behooves local gun
ners to post themselves relative to the
requirements of the Indiana game
law passed by the last legislature.
This law is now in force and contains
several new features witli which a
great many persons are not familiar.
It provides a fine of not more than
$25 nor less than $10 for hunting on
Sunday or upon any enclosed land
without the consent of the owner or
tenant thervf. From October 1 to
November 10 it is unlawful to hunt
any kind of game unless the hunter
first procures a permit from the com
missioner of fisheries and game. This
permit can be procured free of cost by
any reputable resident of the state up
on application to the game commis
sioner. Non-residents are required to
procure a license from the clerk of the
circuit court at a cost of $25.00 before
they can legally hunt on Indiana soil.

and THE STOCK MARKET
(Henry Clews in Financial Weekly)
The country has passed through
the shock of President McKinley 's
assassination with a wonderful degree
of composure. In both political and
business circles the blow has been met
with an exhibition of fortitude that
rellects the highest credit upon the
Sad as the event has been, President
McKinley 's martrydom has proven
and strengthened the solidarity of the
merican people. It has aroused and
brought together the conservative
forces of the country which too often
lie dormant in times of public dangers;
it has softened political animosities,
and it has shown the follv of that
weak toleration which permits the un
limited abuse of liberty.
Perhaps nothing has contributed
more towards the preservation of con
fidence than President Roosevelt's
frank and positive statement that he
would faithfully continue the policy
of Mr. McKinley. Our new president
has been before the public gaze for the
last few years almost as prominently
as Mr. McKinleyJhimself. His strong
and weak points were well known to
everyone. "So one doubted his great
courage and integrity; and no one can
now doubt that he fully realizes his
grave responsibilites. There is every
reason to believe that President
Roosevelt will satisfactorily fill his
great ollice, and that the administra
tion will work with him on the same
high plane as under his illustrious
Happily Secretaries Hay and Gage
will remain in ollice to work out the
policies already adopted. Talk of I
panic was sheer folly, because there j
never was material for a panic, either
in political, financial or business cir
cles. The shock of assassination was
strictly a moral shock and never had
at any time any real connection with
our material welfare.

CZOLGOSZ WILL DIE
but HIS TEMPTERS LIVE
(Chicago Inter Ocean)
The collapse of Czolgosz upon his
last appearance in court was evident
to all beholders. "When asked if he
had any reason to advance why sen
tence should not be passed upon him
he could give none, lie lacked even
the strength to excuse his crime. He

and had feathered the resolution to
face certain death for it, thus sudden
ly became a creature utterly incap
able of concentrated thought or deed.
And why? Simply because he was at
last alone without sympathy, sup
port, or encouragement. '
The highly respectable citizens who
had told lvim from the platform and
in the newspapers for nearly three
years that William McKinley was a
"czar," an "emperor," an "oppres
sor." a "tyrant," a "outcner" naa
lied from him iu terror.
The moral reformers who had de
scribed to him the President of the
United States as "William of Jolo,
with his canteens and slaves and wines
and concubines," had hushed their
clatter and stolen away into hiding.
The degenerate journalists who had
assured him that he was a down-trod
den slave, and that William McKinley
was but the dirty tool of his cruel
master, has secured from his view and
clothed themselves in silence.
They all were gone those who had
drawn the pictures to fire his fanatic
ism, those who had uttered the de
nunciations to dispel his torpor, those
who had plied the lash of hate to
rouse his determination they all were
gone and he was left alone alone and
as he was before they touched him and
And so, in his isolation, he became
his natural self again a creature too
weak, too craven to speak or stride.
Without others to support and en
courage him, his real character was
plain. He stood before all the world
as the feeblest of men. - " ,
