English, Indiana, Mar. 16-One of the most sensational arrests in the history of Crawford County is the wholesale one in which A. J. Scott, county commissioner and preacher, accompanied by his brother, Lindsey, and their sons, George Scott, William A. Scott and William K. Scott, together with Albert Jones and William Condra, two more ministers of the gospel, were arrested upon the charge of taking Charles Mattox from his home near Marengo one night last week with a rope around his neck, leading him two miles and threatening to hang him for stealing pork which he bought from a neighbor.
