Considerable excitement prevailed for a

were guilty of disorderly conduct. They

The Johnson County Journal in its
last issue charges Mr. W. C. Allen, the
sherill'of that county, with having wrong
fully withheld from the county treasury lor
a long period of time about fifteen hundred
dollars, collected fVom the people in taxes,
and which he paid over, with the interest
thereon, only after the Journal tnan.proinp
ted by his disappointment in not receiving
the tax list b.r publication, though it had
worked for Allen's election, investigated
his record and laid bare his crookedness.
The Journal man is republican, and, like
iniriads of other republicans -one other in
particular that we inigtit mention-he
worked for the party, not from principle,
but because he expected lucre. He was
disappointed, and now the man whnui he
proclaimed a saint before is made to appear
very much otherwise.

II. L. Morey, the individual to whom it was
alleged President Garlield wrote, and who
subsequently confessed he perjured himself.
He pleaded guilty to an indictment for per
jury prcHciilcd against him, and Judge
Cowing sent him to stale prison for eight
years, as stated. The judge, in passing
sentence, put the case very properly when
he said : "The case is one in which the
perjury was of the most dangerous charac
ter undone which all'ected the result of the
national election. In imposing such a
heavy sentence lor the offence I do It to
serve as a warning to others against going
upon a stand in a court of justice and de
liberately perjuring themselves where the
act involves such enormous interests."
