Washington Co, IN History, page 435 -- STRONG DRINK CAUSES TROUBLE -- Between the years 1864-1868 Henry Clark was a terror in and around Salem. He was a fine-looking young man, but drank heavily whenever he was able to extort money from his father, who was of a kind and indulgent disposition. Young Clark almost ruined his father financially by his acts of lawlessness, which required considerable sums of money from time to time to keep him out of the clutches of the law. On the evening of April 11, 1868, the Good Templars had a mass meeting at the court house in Salem, which young Clark did not approve of, and he threatened to put some of the leading temperance people where they could not be making war on whisky. As the meeting broke up Clarke stationed himself in the street on the south side of the court house and fired several shots from a pistol into the crowd. A shot struck George F. Telle, inflicting a mortal wound. Clark concealed himselt that night in an old house on North main Street, armed with a pistol and shotgun. The next morning an attempt was made to arrest him and he warned the officers to keep their distance that he would shoot the first man who came near his hiding place. Occasionally he would discharge his gun to terrorize the officers attempting to arrest him. Late in the day his father succeeded in persuading him to surrender. He was indicted, tried, convicted and sentenced to confinement in the penitentiary for twenty-one years. Being divorced from whisky, he made an exemplary convict and was pardoned before he served out quite half his term.
