That is a pretty anApathetic story
that my young friend Fred Govian
wrote about the inissionary, Dr. But
lor and his wife. No doubt but that
it was founded on fact, and ho prob
ably got his data from soino very old
man who still lives near Coosavillo,
a littlo -village - twelve miles bolow
Rome. I was intorested in (he story
because when I was a lad that. sano
Dr. Butler was imiprisoned in the
county jail in Lawronecovillo, whoro
my father lived. Another mission
ary, by the name of Worcester, was
imprisoned with him, and their of
fonso was their rofusal to take th1
oath of allegiance to the State ofi
Georgia or otherwise to leave Jfl
Cherokee nation. TheY .i) sus
pected of up. infuetce to
9-..i.tlh Ifndians dissatisfied wit'h
the treaty that required thom to go
west. John Howard Payne, tho au
thor of "Homo Sweet Home," wias
also a suspect, and was arrested and
taken to Milledgeville to be exam
ined. Thoso wero hot timos in Geor
gia, especially north Goorgin, for
Gwinnntt wias a border county, and
we children coumd ainost see I ndians
squatted among the chintiquapin bush -
os or behind the trees on the road to
the mill. We know they Were just
over the Chattahoochoo river, aind
that some white peoplo over thoro
bad been inurdered by them. In
dinns were as much a terror to us as
ghosts and runaway negrovs. The
new granite jail had just boon col
pleted, and nine Indians woro the
first ,prisoners. They all osenped
within a week. They fook up a stonc,
in the floor and bilrrowed out liko
moles or rabbits.
I never heard until G-ovan wrote it
that Butler was dragged to Milledgo
villo with a rope arouid his neck,
nor am I prepared to beliovo that
much of the story. Io and Wor
coster were arrested at Now Echota
(in G9rdon County) and brought
mounted to Lawrencovillo an(I tried
before Judge Clayton, who was Mrs.
Henry Grady's grand fat hor, alearned,
humane and incorruptiblo judge.
They haid the best of local counsel,
Elisha Chester, also a native of Con
nectient, and they htan tho renowned
William Wirt as an adviser, and
9hyhdthe p)residlent, JIolhn Q i noy
A a r-ontheir side. Johtn Mat
shall, the chief justice of thte supreme
court, issued his miandatus to com
pol Judge Clayton to tolonso thte
pr-isoners, hut heotrefused, and a col -
Ilision seemed inevitable btetwooen thte
United States antd thie Stato of Gehor
gia. I think that Mr. Glovan's in
formnant is mistaken, for Uutler had
lots of friemis-powerful frienids -
andi John Ross, the chief of the
Cherokees, was. backing Itittm. Doubt
10osslie was a good man, b)ut lhe wvas
stubborn and fan atical,- anild decl ared
lie owpd no allIegiance except to the
American board ojf foreigt n missions,
and to God-that it was his duity to
teach Chirist.ianit.y to thle Indl ians,
and lhe would continno to (10 so.
B .th these tmen' wetr conivicted
anid'sentenced to the ponitent inry for'
fou r years. When t.hey arrivedl at
Milledgoville Govet-nor Lmuttpkinm
kindh dvised thetm to tatke the oathi
or - froo to leave ihe SItale, and if
th7 wvould do eIter he would at
l)n ardon t.htom. They refused
and wrot.e to the btoar-d or missionts
for advice. Thait bJoard commtenCi(dd
their refusal and again iurgod Witt
and Sargeant to resort to the su
pr-etti court. But these eminent law
yers advised an acceptance of (Gov
ernor Lumpkin's ofl'er. So they ac
cepted and were pardoned---and my
father always sid( they returned to
Coecticut. He knowv thbem .and
had many convei-sations with thetm
and give them good advice, for lie,
too, was a Newv England man. And
hence I yni surprised to learn fr-om
Mr. Govarn that Butler returned to
*his misesionary wvork anid (lid near
Coosavillo and was b)uried by the
side of his wife. In fact, I never
knew bei -t%ttbe had a wife, but
otc .he inscription on her tomb.
o settles that. Mr. Govan gives
(itlor the Christian name of Elonez,
but the records in the State archivcs
show his name as he himsolf signed it
to bo, Elizur.
It is, however, an interesting and
pathetic story and very groat mon
figured in it, both State and nation
al. The conflicts betwoon the Stato
md. the Chorokoos and' the United
States continued for twelve years
and onded only with the exodus of
1838. Soveral treaties wore made
made only to be broken. Ross and
Ridge, the two chiefs, could never
a.o upon terms, and they had
their followers. When Georgia coded
Alablia and Mississippi to the
Unitpt1 States in 1802, the consid
oe on was that tho United
Stes should extinguish the In
ians' tilo amd removo them beyond
the Mississippi river. .Tio federal
government was so slow in trying to
do this that after waiting and urg
ing'and entreating for twenty years,
the State got impat iont and do
manded action. The Ross party
declored they would not go at all,
bnt finally agreed to code thoir
lands for $20,000,000 and seven
millions acrou of land. This price
was considorod beyond reason, and
the Ridge party finally roduced it to
$i'),000,000 an i sevon million acros
atd * (00,000 for expons6s -in break
ing up and transporting their very
limited household goods. It is as
tonislhing how many notable men it
took to (ffect the removal of tho
Crooks aud Cherokees from Georgia.
In looking over the recordr we find
t-hat, Governor James Jackson had
t!ctible with the Creeks, who after
tley hand mado a treaty continued
.ioir depredations, an(d ho upbraided
them and brought forward a long list
of Jamagoi, iaiounting to '$I.J,000,
which he said they mus pay. "Give
mosomo paper," said the chief, "and
I will mako a longer account against
your peoplo than that." But Gov
ornors Troup and Gilmer and Lump
kin had the most seriouR tronblos
and their complications brought in
President Adams and Jackson, John
Marshall, Joseph Story, William
Wirt, John Forsythe, Andrew Pick

Gaines -all of whom took an active
part, in the negotiations. This Gon
eral Gaines was a friend and mili.
tary companion of Gonoral Androw
Jackson in the In(ian wars and was
the husbUnd of Myra Clark Gainos,
who. had thli long and famous law
suit against the city of Now Orleans.
Fort Gaines in Gekorgia wvas named
for him and I suppose that Gaines

PUI.C OFFICE A I'UI1,10 TRUST.
Tho Famous Mlaxim A ppeared l in JefT..rion

Somehow I overlooked your recent
publications in respect to the quota
tion, "Public Office is a Public
Trust," intil this morninrg. Referr
nig to a second publication in your
issuo of July 22 as to Col. Daniel
Lamont's agenny, etc, I bog leave
to call your attention to a very intor
osting paragraph on this subject
from which it will appear that Mr.
Cleveland undoubtedly obtained the
idea, not from a perusal of the Dom
ocratic platform of 1870, nor from
Lord Clancellor Loughborough's
writitngs, but from the inaugural ad
dress of Mr. Jofferson Davis as pro
visional Prosident of the Southern
In support of this suggestion I
quoto the following from a pamphlet
entitled "Third Term, Presidential,"
by Ex-Sonator and Ex-Attornoy Gon
oral Glad1, of Arkansas. In that
pamphlet, publislied nearly two years
since, in which the pernicious doc
trino of it third term was ably coin
bated, Mr. Garland says:
Thoro aro public offices -and there
are oflic0s, an(d, as their names im
port, one sort is for public intorost
1lone and the ofher for private in
terest, and theo two must not be
mingled or confoundold, "A public
trust," saidl Burke many years ago,
andl Mr. Jefferson reitoratedl it witi
sharp emphasis, (Rayner's "Life of
J effersoni," p. ~350,) and so did Mr.
Cahoun, July 13, 1835, and Mr.
Charles Sumner, on May 31, 1872,
said this phirase had of late become
comn promilwperly. Looking over
50ome1 old, musty- papors historical of
the "Lost Cause," I findl Mr. Jef
ferson D)avis, in his inaugural ad
dre:ss as the provisional President of
the Sontheirn Confederacy, April 26,
1801, says "all p)ubhlc oflices are but
public trusts," thus, in his first bow
to the pub)lic in this experiment of
goverinmont, in an address couched
in flint pure and undefiled English
of which lie was perfect master, plac
inig before his people the great value
and1( impor-tance of seeing and unider
staind1 img thiis dlistinct ion.
I thinkh .Judge Cooley, in his
"Pr-i ncies of Consrtitutional Law,"
(second edit ion 189 I,) says that "a.
public oflice is an public trust,'' and
(Gon. (larland calls att ent ion to the
fact that, in thle camnpaign of .188 1.
Mr. Cleveland rocalld this maxim
(of Jeflferson Davis.) to the attention
of the American people, and urged
them not to forget it. Trho Geon
oral very aptly says that "it was the
imotloe of the campl~aign p)amphlet of
1884; it b)lazedl and glittered upon
the transparenuies in the torchlight.
