ROBBED OF HIS LIBERTY.
A Hxae Man ImprisoEed in a I.H
aatle Asylast fBr Years.
A remarkable case of a sane per
son having been kept for sir yeare
in an asylum for lunatics through the
influence of his enemies, has just
been put into the hands of Mr. II.
V. Leonard, the lawyer who was in
strumental in obtaining the liberty
of Mrs Henrietta "Wiley and Henry
Prouse Cooper from private asylums.
Mr. Leonard showed the papers in
the case to a reporter. They fn
elude letters from the man who was
deprived of his liberty that tell a
story of cruelty, persecution and suf
fering rarely equaled. When the
persecution was begun, the victim
was in comfortable circumstances
and the owner of a snug little prop
erty. To-day he is a broken-down
man, beyond middle age and an in
mate of the poor-house. His aim is
to bring suit against the persons who
caused his incarceration to recover
from them the value of his property,
which 'they took possession of and
used for their own purposes, while
he was helplessly confined within
the walls of an asjium. All the
name3 of the persons having any
thing to do with the case are in Mr.
Leonard's possession, and there is
even' evidence of a clear and strong
case against them. It is thought
best, however, until the suit is
brought before the courts, not to
divulge the names or the locality in
which the crime was committed.
The latter is not very far from this
city and several of the persons ac
cused by the writer of the letters
are well known and have occupied
prominent official positions in the
places in which they reside. The
victim in the case came to this coun
try from Ireland, in 1S50. After a
few years he entered the army, join
ing the ordinance corps, and was
seriously injured in the left arm and
"I could have left the army then,
on a full pension," he writes, "but
I did not succumb. I served out
my full five years' term, being rated
as sergeant and armorer, the high
est non-commissioned officer."
In 1838 he began to buy property.
During several years following, tip
to I860, he made some additional
purchases. On the first of May,
1873, his wife died of cancer, aftera
long illness. He was left alone.
His property then included two sep
arate pieces of ground, fifty acres in
good condition, $1,100 worth of val
uable timber on the balance, ten
head of cattle at his door, and every
thing in proportion.
"1 knew no more of forgers, per
jurers, deeds or judgments," he
adds, "than a man in his grave. I
paid up all that I owed on a judg
ment to 's agent, but they never
canceled the judgment. Then they
entered forgeries against me in
court, with, I am certain, the full
knowledge of , Kecorder, and
others. In July, 1873, 1 went away
from my home on business. In my
absence they unlocked my door and
robbed my "house. From that time
until May 26, 1875, they practiced
robbing my house and "boycotting
me in themost shameful manner.
For two years I sowed and planted
nothing. They fired shots behind
my house on dark nights to intimi
date me. On May 26, 187o, Dr. ,
of the same town, met me and said
that if I would live with him he
would sell my property to the
best advantage. 35eing desolate and
worn out by this persecution, I
agreed to this in the presence of four
citizens. "While I was with him I
loaned him several amounts of money
on his notes, at one time $100. Dur
ing this time the doctor's nerhew,
Judge of the county, joined my
persecutors and devised a writ of
insanity against me. The doctor did
not try to sell my property, and when
I asked him for the $1C0 he said it
was not due. At that time all the
money I had in the world was $10.
About this time I overheard the fol
lowing conversation between the
doctor and another nephew of his,
a town officer. It was immediately
after the doctor had returned from
a visit to the judge.
"'What did he say?' asked the
' ' 'That it can be done in two ways. '
'"I have been an officer in this
town over twenty years,' replied the
nephew, 'this is a dangerous busi
ness and I will have nothing to do
"This was on February 9, 1870.
Two days later we had occasion to
walk up to the asylum and hospital.
The doctor was with us, aud as was
customary with him he stopped to
have a talk with the Suterintendent.
Before I could realize it, I was taken
possession of and placed in the in
stitution. I was kept there until
June 12, 1882. Then Judge
sent two town commissioners, who
took me to the county poor-house.
In the meantime my "property had
been made away with." N. Y.

A father was very much annoyed
by the foolish questions of his little
son. "Johnny, you are a great
source of annoyance to me."
"What's the matter, pa 7" "You
ask so many foolish questions. I
wasn't a big donkey when I was
your age." "No, "pa, but you've
growed a"heapsince," Troy Press.
Trusting to luck is only another
ra&Etor treating to laziness.
"Yankee Doodle" was the theme
r an interesting paper recentlv read
v Mr. George H. Moore, LL.D.,
!sfcre the Xew York Historical so
iety. An audience completely fill
.i" rhe h.ili listened to the reidln
w 1 1 unabate.i interest. "
"The subject," said Mr. Moore.
" naturally divides itself into two
parts ; first, as to the origin of Yan
kee, and, second, concerning the
time willi which the word is indis
sohtbly linked. Gordon, writing in
1775, says Yankee was the favorite
word of one Jonathan Hastings, liv
ing in Cambridge in 1713, and used
as a term of excellence. The stu
dents at Harvard thus became ac
quainted with it, and, linking it with
Hastings, from whom they hired
horses, it became a by-word and was
scattered over the country. There
is little or no authority to rest this
statement of the origin upon. The
first registered Yankee was one
William Marr, a slave in the Caro
linas, who in an advertisement in a
small English paper in 1723, is thus
called." Mr. Moore then passed
over in rapid succession the various
suppo-ied Indian derivatives of the
word, including that in Irving's
"History of New York," and the
hitherto accepted authority of the
Morovian missionary in Pennsylva
nia that it was a corruption of Yen
geese, the Indian phonetic spelling
of English, and continued :
" The word is not Indian or Greek,
but pure Dutch, expressive of con
tempt and probably the most so in
the vocabulary of the early New
York Dutch. 'Yankin' meant in
that dialect to grumble, snarl or
yelp, and its derivative noun, Yan
ker, meant a howling cur. It was
not in use save among the lower
classes, for reasons which now cut
out slang from use by educated peo
ple, but it was a well-known word.
In the collisions between the New
Englanders and the New York Dutch
bad blood was aroused, and the
New Englanders despised the Dutch,
while the latter abominated the for
mer, and both very fervidly. Hence
the use of the word to indicate the
contempt which existed. Every
circumstance pointed to its birth in
the collisions between the Dutch and
the colonists. To this day the Yan
kees are looked upon with distrust
by the remnants of the real Dutch
men now outside New England.
11 The word was well known be
fore the tune," continued Mr. Moore,
" but the latter unquestionably came
from England, despite the assertions
that it is a well-known Netherland
peasant song, or that KobsuUi, when
here, recognized it as a Hungarian
dance, or that it is known as the
ancient sword dance, of the Biscay
ans. The words and tune were un
doubtedly first wedded together by
Dr. Kichani Shuckberg, who was
connected with the British army
when the colonial troops from New
England marched into a camp at Al
bany to join the British regulars on
the way to fight the French. The
doctor knew of the tune as "Fisher's
Jig,' of which a verse ran :
" Lucy LocVet lust her pocket,
Lyda. Fisher found it, etc.'
"The appearance of the troops
called down the derision of the Brit
ish officers, and soon the hit of Ihe
doctor became known throughout
the army as a method of showing
contempt for the colonials, and this
continued until after Lexington, the
British troons !invim ;n 177.T Tvlnn
they tarred and feathered one
Thomas Ditson, in Boston, marching
to the tune as the best known wav
of heaping contempt on the Yankees.
This was changed at Lexington,
when the British commander was
asked howheliked thr timo nnd nn.
swered: 'How they did make us
dance to it!' Doodle," Mr. Moore
said, "always meant a trifler, and iB
thus referred to in the Lancashire
hornpipe, written in 1622."
He closed -his paper by relating
the incident at the surrender of Corn
wallis when the British, not wishing
to surrender to the despised coloni
als, turned to the F rench contingent
and prepared to ground arms. See
ing this Lafayette ordered the French
bands to play " Yankee Doodle,"
and to this tune the arms were laid
down and the revolution ended.
