Il.trayed II l Friend for Money.
The people of Muscatine, generally,
have not a great amount of sympathy
with W. II. Johnson, in jail there for
peculation committed while he was
county auditor, and awaiting a com
ing trial, but that which they now
entertain is two-fold what it was be
fore the manner in which his capture
was effected became known. John
son was met and recognized in Hon
olulu by a young man named Lane,
a resident of Muscatine, and a good
friend of his in former days. Mrs.
Johnson's mother had practically
mothered this young man when he
was a small boy, and he was under
obligatians to her and to her husband,
as most of the Muscatine people look
at the matter. Johnson, it is
claimed, talked with Lane of his
affair, and told him that he was try
ing to get straight so as to square
matters, and secured from him a
promise not to betray his wherea
bouts. But Lane's father quickened
his cupidity with the suggestion that
he would be a fool not to go in and
win the 1500 reward offered for the
arrest of Johnson, or information
leading to it. The youDg man at
first refused, it is said", and then cast
has promises behind him and went
after the reward. He gave the in
formation that led to Johnson's ar
rest. The Muscatine people who
condemn Johnson for his crooked
work while in office and who have no
defense to make for him are quite
warm, in many cases, in their castiga
tion of Lane for his betrayal of the
man to whom he gave a solemn
promise, and to whose family he was
under obligations. What makes the
matter still more interesting is the
suggestion that there is a bitch in
the payment of the reward, and that
it may not be forthcoming after all.
Beyond this are serious doubts that
Johnson will be convicted. The
technicalities of the law seem to eive
him all the chance and the state lit
tle or none.
