He deposited all but tl.SOO In a bank and several days later the bank failed. As he depoBlted the money, regardless of a rule which stated that he should not place public funds In a bank not secured by the government, he feared the conse quences for his act and fled with the U.S00 which he had not deposited. He was arrested several months later In Fort Worth, Tex., where he tu taken before a commissioner and extradited to Colo rado, where he wae Indicted. He was later released on a 12.000 bond. Johnson had been at liberty only a few days when he disappeared and. since IRQ nothing had been heard of him, although federal officials kept on the trail for several years.

He went over to Coun cil Bluffs, but hla conscience refused to let him live In peace and yesterday he appeared In the marshal's office and made a clean breast of his crime. ' He was placed In the Douglas county Jail and the United States attorney at Denver notified by telegraph. Thla morn-i tng Mr. Howell received a reply informing' him that the case against Johnson had been aolled and said that there was no reason for holding' hiiu. Johnson when released and told , that the case had been dropped fifteen years ago. Instead of being overjoyed, wept like a child.
