It contained thirty Kight desperadoes from the Indian territory. From Tho Indianapolis news. A Hundred and fifty years prison life were represented in a car Load convicts that went East through the City last evening coming in Over the Vandalia Road. They were United states prisoners from the Indian territory in route to Detroit where they Are to serve out sentences for crimes. Motley s the word in describing that prison car Load human live Stock. Thirty eight More degraded looking outlaws never passed through Indiana. There were Indiana half Ger Man and americans the lowest Type each. Murderers horse thieves train robbers and bandits occupied the once clean cushions the coach two to a seat. They were chained in couples. Some were Young and cheerful others were Middle aged Aud resigned still others were stolid and brutal feigning sleep yet eyeing the guards and giving ear to every word dropped by persons admitted to the car. All were unshaven and unkempt. One Young and rather coarse looking women was in the number. She had a seat to herself at the rear the car and talked freely with the guards and some the near pole ers. Say son give me said one the prisoners to an Indianapolis news reporter. How far is it to asked another. What state Are we in now queried a third. What Are you charged was asked a looking Young fellow. Of i was born cd lady Aud picked up a horse to carry he Bald he was Only 13 years old and two others near him gave that As their Are. They had apparently spent Ali their lives in outlawing for they were Brazen and depraved. The indians Are not the most Trou said the chief the guards w. B. Paps Jailer the Federal jail at fort Smith. They Are quiet in manner and give a Little trouble. But those White Fellows Are not to be trusted for an instant. I will be glad when this Job is attended and one heartily sympathized with him As he looked at the unfortunates and caught the steaming odor that came from them like the fumes from a sewer. Gibson Cartridge was one the desperadoes. He is a half Breed Creek Indian and has taken the life seven men so the guard said. But Uncle does t punish him for Siren a trivial thing As this. In an evil hour Cartridge stole a horse and this big government leaped upon him with a Cartridge will not need a horse for Twenty years. When an Indian kills in Indian the government looks serenely and furnishes Guti Aud ammunition. If the murdered Man friends and they cry for Justice they Are referred to the Indian councils. The tribes try their own murderers Are supposed to. But if an Indian steals a horse that s different. Another worthy who is taking this ride at the expense the government is Andy triple evil repute. He is one the robbers who stopped a train at Briar Creek in the Cherokee nation. One his pals is to die for his crime. Andy gets with a twelve year sentence. It was a melancholy though inter Esting thing to see the prisoners. Curiosity was the Only evidence sensibility aroused in them. Some looked to be better than their Circum stances and doubtless might be converted men. With clean clothes and faces some might pass for Good look ing citizens but the majority save unmistakable evidence in their faces criminal lives and in their stubby beards be Grimes with the dust and soot travel their Frontier and filthy clothes and the record Given them by their guards they created the atmosphere a moral pestilence.

The Only Gold visible about him was the Gold his character and a remarkable hat ban a the same color he always persisted in wearing whether in Africa in Europe. That gilded hat band had probably much to do with the con version the Savage to christianity which was the purpose for which. Livingstone travelled toiled and died.
