Held Fifteen Years as a Slave ,
Adjudged Lunatic. Ma Old Master

1'rruliRy His rattier
Loft to Die In
The suit brouaht by the mother ol
Blind Tom in the Virginia courts to res-
cao htm from the central of his old mas
ter , James G. Botbuno of Columbus ,
G . , when the fiicU become known , can
not fall to awaken a profound Interest In
the fate ol that strangely endowed fan-
man being. The faota developed on the
presentation of a petition to the jndgo ol
the county court of Fatiquler , Va. , a few
days ago , can leave no doubt In any fair
mind that Tom's Invaluable services have
been appropriated by Bothnno as effect
nally no If the laws of slavery still pro
vallod , not only in the south , but north
of Maton's and Dlxon's ' lino. Tom hat
been well clothed and fed , which wore
essential conditions for the uio tbat has
been made of his talents ; bat ho has
nothing to show for tbo many thousands ,
probably a hundred thousand dollars that
bo has made for his nnstor.
Tom's mother Is now Washington , poor ,
and depsndont upon the charity of
Friends. She Is a small woman , a thor
ough-blooded African in descent , but not
black. Her complexion Is that ot the
Grow mon on the Liberia coast , which is
described as dark brown , Her hair and
features are African.
Her son Thomas , as aho calls him , ox-
ulbitod his wonderful music il talent before
fore ho was n year old. Ho was born en
tirely blind , but a surgical operation en
abled him to 830 indistinctly ; n faculty
which ho still rotalna , being able to dis
tinguish largo objects and to move about
a room without a guide. In his Infancy ]
ho was attracted by the singing of birds ,
the barking of dogs , and similar soiuids ,
and would endeavor to crawl to thorn
Hearing the piano in the house of his
master , ho would endeavor to crawl to U ;
'and ' at length succeeded while tbo family
'wero ' at dinner. They were all surprised ,
to hear a tune played , and their surprise
became nruszsmout when they discovered ;
that the llttlo blind negro baby pro
Tom was born In 18 It ) , and this won
[ dorfnl discovery of his talent was mixdo In
1851. Hla master , it ii said , took him to ]
Oolumbu ; , Georgia , and had hlni instructed -
| od In music , and began to exhibit him for
money when only live yeats old. Torn !
remained n slavn until the closcjffi
'of ' the war , when ho was bound by
bis parents to Bothnuo , the master , for
[ five years , at the end of which tlmo he
wonld bojomo of ago. The terms were ,
that his parents , Mlngo and Charity ,
Wiggins were to receive $500 per annum ,
bo placed In a comfortable home wlthl
maintenance , and that Tom was to re-J
ceivo § 20 per month with 10 per cent on
Tbo contract was for five years
Dothuno paid some money from time to
time , but never accounted for the profits ,
land shortly afterward removed to Vlr-j
jglnla whore ho bought an estate. On
the 25th day of July , 1870 Bethune ,
without notice , it Is said , to Tom's pa
rents , whom ho know to bo alive and
resident In the wretched cabin In which
ho had placed them , near Columbus , had
Tom committed to the keeping of his son ,
Ljohn G. Bothnno , as a lunatic. It Is
[ said this summary process by which a
freeman was deprived of bis liberty ; was
gone through with by the court without
requiring any of the safeguards which
the laws have provided to bo observed.
There was no examination by experts ,
nor notice to parents ; and thus was Tom
forced under the pretext of lunacy , to
become the scrrant of his old master's
son. Bethuno exhibited this alleged , or
decreed , lunatic all over the country as a
musical prodigy , and made Immense sums
of money. It is said that he made $40-
000 clear during one season In California
Yonng Bothnne , Tom's ' committee , or
master , is eaid to have boon Improvident
and spent large sums In fine horses. The
family were poor at the close of the war ,
and remained so until the revenue from
Tom's talent made thorn rich.
Tom , in the meantime , has been kept' '
In close confinement , oftentimes under
lock and key , and no person lias been
allowed to communicate with him. He ]
has grown up in absolute Ignorance o :
everything except music. For several
years at a time ho was not returned to
his mother , and then only for a few days
'Ho ' knows nothing of cither dlvlno or hu
| man relations , except implicit obedience
to his master.
John G. Bethnno died in 1884. Hie
father , James N. Bothnno , who waa on
the commitment band for $20,000 , went
Into tbo Fauqulor court , where Tom had
been commlttod as a lunatic in 1870 , and
had himself appointed a committee to
Itako charge of Tom. Another son took
the father's place as bondsman in the re
duced amount of $5,000. The accommo
dating judge waived the legal require
ments of the certificates of physicians or !
other witnesses ; and , Indeed , an examin
ation by physicians or others would have
3eoQ Impossible , as Tom at that tlmo was
on exhibition at Charlotte , in North Car
ollna , 400 or 500 miles from Fauquior
'ourt ' Ho"no.
It was not until this second commit
tent of Tom to the Botbnnes as a luna
tic , that his poor , ignorant mother In
lier Georgia cabin , was made aware of
fact tbat ho was bold and bound in that
way. Ho bad been practically hold as a
slave for fourteom years without oorl
knowledge. Her husband died the year
before in extreme poverty , wltout having !
seen his son In a dozen years , The
Oothunes were rolling In wealth , earned' '
by Tom , while his parents were llvlcg
and dying In destitution in tbo wilds ot
Gocrgla. Tha old womin says aho WAS
not able to bay medicine for her children ,
[ of whom she had twenty , thirteen being
now alive , It is needless to add that she
was unable to procure counsel.
It naa under each circumstances that
some persons volunteered assistance
Tom was playing In Now Orleans. His
mother was taken there , and a writ of
habeas corpus was sued out for Tom , the
object being to try the question of legal
custody claimed by Bethune. To avoid
the inquiry Bethuno ran away , taking
Tom with him. Tha mother then deter
mined to pursue the Bothunes , and if
possible , reclaim or release her son. Sbe |
went to Now York with her friends to
establish her residence and become a
citizen of tbat state. Bethuno came bick
to Virginia , exhibiting Tom In the small
towns , but avoiding publicity as much as' '
possible. When ha reached Warronton ,
the county seat of Faquler county , Tom's ]
mother presented her petition for a writ
of habou corpus , At lirst the judge ra-
fused to issue the writ , but after sending
for ana consulting with Bethune , ho con- ,
suited to do eo , aud set a day for the
'netting. ' Thj petition cet fjrth the facti
that Tom had boon committed without
legal examination , that he had not beonjj
submitted ta the jurisdiction of thojj
court , tbat ho hd not been examined by
physician , that no wltneesas had testl
Ged to his insanity , that ho was deprive :
of his liberty without duo process of law
that he was exhibited for gain by hi
committee contrary io law , that ho derived
rived no benefit for such gain or profit
that ho was deprived of accossto or Inter
course with his mother and family , tlm
ho was subject to such cruel trestrneni
that his mind was not allowed to devel
op. , that ho was Intentionally kept in ig
ooranco and prevented from knowing
what Is right , and that his committee ,
knowing and intentionally , kept him in i
state of Imbecility for the purpose ol
making gain and profit out of his condi
tion , that his present state of Imbecility
waa the result of systematic ard inten
tional treatment by his committed , thai
ho was not a lunatic at the tirno ho was
committed and Is not a lunatic at the
present time , that he is entitled to his
liberty booauso ho is sane , and the moth
er demanded in npcn court that her son
bo examined and If found anne that ho
30 rottirnod to his family and friendsthat
.ho Bethunoa had boon robbing him for
Iwonty years under legal forms without
tar knowledge or consent.
Bothnno answered by simply present
n ? the commitment under which he
i ted and the judge decided that that
was sufficient. The court had said in
L870 that it was satisfied that Tom was a
unatic ; ho wonld not examine him because
cause that sentence in 1370 was concln
slvo , and the presumption was , if ho
wore a lunatic In 1870 ho was a lunntlc
n 1884. Do therefore remanded Tom
jack to the custody of Bethune , and
aided by way of emphasis , that James N.
Bothuuo was the only man who should
have charge of him. This was equivalent
to declaring by this Fauqaior judge that
a man who has once bcoa declared a
lunatic must remain a lunatic forever ,
and that the committee who exhibited
the lunatic in public and realized large
sums from it , which ho appropriated to
his own use , was the only proper per
son to bo entrusted with the responsible
Tno counsel for the mother , of course ,
excepted to this railing , and set out
their exceptions in full. The judge
signed them , and they form part of a
record hi this case.
In this extremity thn counsel for the
mother turned to the courts of the
United States. They wont before Judge
Hughes of the eastern division of Virgin-
la with a new petition , setting forth tbat
her sou was hold in slavey and had not
received the benefit ef the emancipation
laws of the United States , that ho was
hold In involuntary servitude with nt
duo process of law. Judge Hnghas
granted the writ , and made it returnable
t Alaxandna , Virginia , where ho was
holding l a ci cult courc.
At the hearing ho decided that tne
allegation of slavery was not sustained ,
and that ho had no right to examine
into the finding of the court of Fan-
quler county. He examined Tom as to
legal restraint , and Tom answered
| romptly that ho wished to remain with
10 Bothunes ; that ho was treated kind-
: ; thet ho aid not want to go with his
mother ; that the people who were seek-
ug him would iaka away his piano and
ot allow him to play , and ho did not
now what they would do to him. But
hen questioned further by the judge ,
t the suggestion of counsel for the po-
itloner , ho as promptly replied that ho
vaa Instructed by the liothuncs to make
lieso answers ; that the Bothunes told (
1m his mother wonld take his piano
om him , and not let him play , and [
tattho Bothunes had told him hla mother
was with a gacg who wonld do him an ;
Judge Hughes , in his concluding re
marks , said if Tom were set at liberty , It
waa evident ho wonld go back to Beth-
ne. He could not examine the quca
ion of sanity , because he had no juris
Ictlon in the case , the commitment of
ho court of Fauquler county being con-
luslve on that question. Under all the
Ircumstances of the case , ho would ro-
uand the prisoner to the respondent ; but
ronld recommend that the petitioner ap-
eal this case to the United States su-
rome court. The writ was dismissed ,
ach party paying Its own coits.
It appears from tnia statement tbat
Bethnno , since the expiration of hla con-
ract with Tom's parents , has been under
o legal obligation than to clothe and
eed his ward. That contract expired by
mltatlon in 1870 , slnco which time , as
lie guardian or committed of the alleged
nnatlc , Bethnno has accumulated a tor
uno , and no thanks to poor old Charity
Viggins , the mother of his valuable
roperty. The studied and , it saoms ,
uccesefnl attempt to alllonato the ail'ec-
ons of the child from the mother , Is
10 crowning Infamy of this business.
Vill not a court of equity somewhere in-
erposa to make Bothuno account to Tom
or his earnings ?
