WIFE WAS RIGHT
Man Buried at Muscatine Net
James W. Hill of Moline,
IS AT KANSAS
Sheriff Heider Receives Information
from Pension Agent Body Iden
tified by Brother.
From information received today
from J. Merriam, United States pension
agent at Chicago, by Sheriff Heider, it
appears that the man found below Mus
catine supposed to be James W. Hill
of Moline, was not Hill, and that Mr.
Hill is now in Kansas City, Mo. In re
sponse to a request for information of
Hill's whereabouts. Mr. Merriam sent
i& the sheriff-a'tflip giving the present
address of Mr. Hill as "General Deliv
ery. Kansas City, Mo." From this it
would appear that Mrs. Hill, now resid
ing at Burlington, was right, and that
Mr. Hill's brother was mistaken in the
identification of the body at Muscatine.
DlMappmml im Sprlntc.
It will be remembered that Mr. Hill
disappeared from his home in Moline
early" in the spring. He was suffering
from pneumonia at the time of his dis
appearance. Some weeks later a body
was found below Muscatine, and Mr.
Hill's brother identified it as that of
the missing man. He was positive of
the Identification. Later Mrs. Hill
went to Muscatine and asked that the
body be disinterred, as she was certain
that it was not that of her husband.
The authorities refused her request.
Later Mr. Hill was reported to have
been seen at Kansas City.
HtIntlvtM f.ivru Fact".
Mystery was added to the case by
the fact that Mr. Hill's pension vouch
ers were cashed at Eldon, Iowa, a few
days after his disappearance. The sig
nature was declared to be genuine.
Who the man was whose body was in
terred at Muscatine under the supposi
tion that it was the Moline man is a
mystery. Sheriff Heider has turned
the matter over to the relatives of the
man for further investigation.
