Case # 1854-KM03

November 17, 1854

LEAVENWORTH – Reported Arrest.  The Independence Dispatch has given currency to a report, that Maj. Ogden, and others of the military officers at Fort Leavenworth, are now under arrest, and then gives a conflicting report after which the editor states he is unable to decide which is correct.  We can tell the editor no such arrest has been made or even attempted to be made.  It is not the first time that false reports started by Madame Rumor, with her ten thousand lying tongues have found their way into some of the public prints in relation to the gentlemen alluded to.  The Kansas Weekly Herald, Leavenworth, Kansas Territory.  Friday, November 17, 1854.
