which was delivered to Judge Mc
Mahan, who is acting for Mr. Sage,
having been given power of attor
ney by the refugee upon his leaving
Hammond. This letter is from Mr.
Donaldson and contained a money
order which he had promised to send
to Mr. Sage when he left him hero
and returned to Chicago. In his let

Mr. Donaldson addresses the refugee
as "My Dear Mr. Sage," and con

you to escape further unjust impris

conclusively what Mr. Donaldson

the effect that Mr. Donaldson had
dismissed Mr. Sage from his employ
