MO&E EXPECTED TO T0LL0W
Vote in Attempted Election Was
Only a Small Part of
The first of a series of arrests that
may be expected to grow out of the
riots last week over the attempt to
hold nu election in IeKalb comity
for the purpose of deciding upt:n the
location of the court house have been
made. Dr. II. C. Wilder, of DeKalb,
was arretted lor assault and battery
and tried before Justice 1... B. Mitch
ell. OTo defense was made. Before
leaving the court room a state war
rant was served on Wilder for resist
ing an officer. He waived examina
tion, and gave $1,000 bonds to appear
in the circuit court.
A summons was then served order
ing him to. appear at the circuit court,
where a suit will be entered by Cnpt.
.lames Shaffer, brother of Maj. Gn.
William R. Shaffer, in which he sues
Dr. Wilder for $10,000 damages for
personal injuries. Capt. Shaffer, act
ing as deputy sheriff, was trying to
serve a writ of injunction against the
election, anil was roughly handled and
badly injured. It Js net known as yet
how serious his injuries may prove.

California, -where he intended to re
Jiulges in the various townships
throughout the county who acted at
the bogus election have been sum

Vote Very Light.
The total vote cast in the county in
favor of removing the tourt house
from Sycamore to DeKalb was :.iiS7,
with about H) against the proposition.
Of this vote 2.05S were polled in De
Kalb. Syeamore and those friendly
to this place ignored the election and
claim that it is illegal and will cut no
figure. The county clerk, as an orT
cial, refused to receive the ballots,
but as an ' individual receipted for
them and promised that they would
be safely kept.
The total vote of DeKalb county is
ordinarily about 0.200. so that a ma
jority was not cast in favor of the

GAVE TIP $3,000 TO A STRANGER
Money Secured Through Forged
Deed to Real Estate in
In one of the boldest and cleverest
flim-flam games ever attempted - and
successfully executed in the state of
Iowa, Matthew Redden, residing in
Clinton, a retired farmer who is re
puted well-to-do, was victimized in
the sum of $3,000, which money was
secured in bank notes last week by a
stranger who gave the name of Wil
liam Lunger and represented himself
as a wealthy farmer from near Ma
quoketa. The swindle was not discov
ered until Lunger had a two-days'
William Lunger, the swindler, arriv
ed in Clinton on or about Nov. 6, call
ing nt the real estate otlice of Thomas
W. Murray, and stating that he wish
ed a loan of $3,000. Mr. Murray in
formed the man he had no money to
loan, and he thereupon departed. A
few minutes later Mr. Murray stepped
down stairs, and on a corner met Mat
thew Redden. He chanced to remem
ber the visit of the stranger and his
quest, and mentioned the incidcut to
Mr. Redden. While the men were
talking Lunger came along and, rec
ognizing Mr. Murray, stopped, lie
was introduced to. Mr. Redden, and the
subject of the loan was brought up,
Mr. Redden having informed Mr. Mur
ray just before Lunger came along
that he had money he would loan on
good farming land.
Haying for Son.
Lunger told Redden he was about
to purchase a 120-acre tract of land
from John Gish, a well-known farmer
who owns land five miles northwest
of the city of Delmar, for his son,
who had rented a farm near Maquo
keta and was operating it. The price
he intended paying, he said, was $100
per acre. He was not going to give
his sen a clear title to the land, how
ever, he informed the Clinton gentle
men, intending to place upon it a
mortgage of $3,000, for his son to
clear up by his own industry. Mr.
Redden expressed his willingness to
loan the money, but wished to see the
land first. Lunger replied that he
would take Redden up to 'the farm,
and Tuesday, Nov. 10, Mr. Redden
went up to Delmar, where he met
Lunger, and was driven to the Gish
place. The matter was talked over at
the Gish farm, the .owner being pres
ent, and Mr. Redden went over the
entire farm to satisfy himself that it
was all right.
During the next few days arrange
ments were completed, and finally
Lunger showed up in Clinton with a
document that purported to be a deed
to the property bearing the signa
tures of Mr. and Mrs. .lohn Gish and
Floyd H. Snnderlin, a notary public
of Delmar. Mr. Redden drew bis mm
ey from the bank and turned it over
to the supposed purchaser of the farm
for his note, with a mortgage as se
Forced th Mimw.
The deed was duly recorded, but at
the end of two days won! was receiv
ed from Delmar that the sale had
never been consummated. The signa
tures to the deed were forgeries. It
was then found that Lunger had dis
appeared and no one had any clew as
to the time or direction of his de
parture. Lunger worked his game without
giving a hint of hit: true character.
He evidently is an old hand,. He had
been about the scene of operations
long enough to thoroughly familiarize
himself with every necessary detail.
It is supposed that he obtained the
use of the notarial seal at a time when
the office of Mr. Sunderlin was tem
orarily left unoccupied. Lunger is
described as a man about 45 years of
age, with dark hair and mustache,
swarthy complexion and of about 200
pounds in weight.
