THE DUNHAM SUSPECT
lowa Officers Hope to Get the Big
BURLINGTON, la.. Dee. SO.—The Hawk
eye nays that the person in the Dcs Moines
County Jail, known as Kd. Smith, is no
other than James C. Dunham, who murdered
six people rear San Jose, Cal.. and for whom
a reward ofsll,ooo is offered.
The prisoner was arrested here for drunk
enness a month ago and would have heen re
leased today but for his resemblance to the
description of Dunham which had just been
received. He will be re-arrested on a
charge of being a fugitive from justice and
will by held pending instructions from San
Jose. He is said to be the exact image of
the man wanted and local officer) are pos

San Jose Doubts
SAX JOSE. Cal., Dec. 80.—There is very
little if any additional information at this
end of the line concerning the man who is
under arrest at Burlington, la., oil suspi
cion that he is James C. Dunham, the noted
murderer who has been hunted so long and
so unsuccessfully so far.
In ■ peaking of the Burlington suspect this
morning, Sheriff Lyndon says he fears he is
not the man, but as yet this cannot be defi
nitely determined. The Burlington Sheriff
is positive the suspect is really Dunham. In
his letters the lowa officer says the man al
most perfectly in all respects fills the descrip
tion of Dunham and looks like tbe photo
graphs which he has of the murderer.
S . In the description which the lowa olficer
Mats sent here he refers to a tooth missing in
right row of teeth. A loi il den
tist lisj, furnish, d the officers here with a
.hat Dunh am had one upper tooth
I'.i'.'i'ly frpnt, on the left side, which was
built liprAjpM, though it did not show,
saw by close.•xuminati. 11. While the don
tist is positive,Wnat, it was on the left side,
ho has no recotite* his books. The Santa
tiara officers think the dentist might be
mistaken »> to the location of the tooth,
since he speaks soleljt memory ot the
work done. If it. is a right upper tooth,
then the tooth missing in the suspect would
go as a strong link in I he chain.
The lowa officer has sent specimens of the
prisoner's handwriting. This is that of an
educated in,in. When compared with the
known writing ot Dunham there lnny be
tome little similarity, but l»'si judges are
inclined lo say that the writing is 'differ-
One i.i the strongest things mentioned %
the Eastern officers to establish identity
is a scar over one eye near the brow. While
it. is not generally known nnd has not been i
mentioned in the circulars sent out. it is
staled by the best authority that Dunham I
has n lew over one eye which is not seen
except; by close scrutiny. When Dunham
was a boy he was hit over the eye by a
buckshot liied from a rubber "flipper." It
Came near causing the loss of an eye. When
ho recovered a scar was leit, and it is still
there, or was when he was last seen. The
lowa Sheriff says the man has refused to let
his photograph be oaken, so he was wired
by Sheriff Smith. When the warrant was
sent Wednesday for his arrest it is pre
sumed the lowa officer intended to use
force to take tlie photograph, a:, such is
inferred from his telegrams and letter.-. If
so, this should arrive Monday or Tuesday,
Until then nothing definite is expected.

Associated Press Special Wire
PAVILION, SAX FRANCISCO, Dee. 30.
—Dan Creedon of Australia nnd George
Green of San Francisco came together in a
twenty-round bout hefore the National Ath
letic club In the preMCce of several thousand
dissatisfied spectators. Both men appeared
in good condition, each weighing 153 pounds'.
Green had many admirers, this being his
tiist appearance in the middleweight class
and his backers fancied th.it he would put
up a stronger fight as a middleweight than
his varied experiences in the welterweight
class show, as he has had to reduce so great
ly to meet the welterweight class. The fight
was an uninteresting one, round after round
being a series of clinches, misses and get
aways'. The men did not fight their best at
any stage and had a younger man gone
againM Green he would have been defeated.
Creadon had a host of backets, who depended
upon his long experience and better gener
alship for him to get the long end of the
purse. The men were generally regarded as
being very evenly matched nnd a shnrp bat
tle was looked for. In this the spectators
were disappointed. The decision of Referee
Kitchen was probably a just one, but it was
greeted with cries' of "Fake" aud hisses. The
betting was 10 to 8 in favor of Green.
The preliminary event to thi? Green-Cree
don fight was between Charles Tye of Oak
land and Mote La For.tise. champion light
weight of the northwest. Tyc weighed 135
pounds, while La Pontile was nine pounds
over weight. Tye was given the decision on
points after the tenth round.
