Nasuville, Tenn., October 1. Near
the close of the late war six substitutes
for men living In Maine were secured.
Among them was a colored man named
Jake Poe. He was to receive 8900 for

whom he Berved. Lieutenant J. Williams,
of Company C, ot the Fortieth Regiment,
United States colored troops, knew, how
ever, that he had been mustered in for

tenant Williams that the hbitory of the af
fa r to-day became public Williamssays
Poe never received more than 35 or 840
of the bounty money, though whether
the money was forwarded and appro
priated by agents, or never seut.hecould
not say. The Fortieth Regiment was or
dered to Lebanon, Tenn. As tho woods
were lull of guerrillas they were ordered
to lie down, and in doing so a gun was1
accldently discharged, shooting poe
In the shoulder, and hopelessly
damaging his arm. Lieutenant
Williams, who lives in Nashville,
not far distant from Poe, has twice en
deavored to piocuro for him a pension,
but without success. Poo is now forty
seven years of age. His little cabin
shows oxtremo poverty, but he Is enjoy
ing the notoriety of havljg served in tho

thluks he ougbt to have a p- nslon, as hi
was shot in the service and never re
ceived any benefit from the bounty.

were tho words "Good Luck to James G.
Blain The shoo was forged by James
Ryder, a life-long Democrat, who was
warmly greeted by Blaine, who said :
"I accept this with very great pleasure,
not only as an evidence of your skill as a
mecnanlc, but as an evidence of your
faith In the Republican party. I accept
this as a symbol of good luck to you and
to the great party I represent."

bit tired, sighed somewhat with re
lief when It was said that Cincinnati wal

where I had been at reboot, and often

of good welcome and cheer. My first

Blaine, "I was only a boy of nineteen
then, on my way to Kentucky. I remem
