tor) to Minnesota, and with that purpose
in view went to the house to get her.
But Mr. O'Neill had taken the precaution
to station an officer at tbe house, which
It seems prevented a forcible abduction.
Alday then went before tbe court through
his conservator, Quincy McNeil, and, to
obtain a writ of habeas corpus, charged
that the woman waa being imprisoned
within the house. Magistrate O'Neill
waa thus obliged to appear as ber repre
sentative before tbe court. It is ex
pected that there will be some racy de
velopments concerning Aldav's past treat
ment of this woman.

The will of the late Bailey Davenport,
spoken of in the Argus cf Saturday
night aa having been found in Putnam's
law office, in Davenport, and bearing
date of 1856, was the last will of the de
ceased and is valid. However, it does
not change the natural course of descent
in tbe least degree, aa the property
passes into the hands of the direct heirs
as it would in the absence of a later docs
ument anyway.
This morning search for a later will was
resumed and a thorough and exhaustive
search of tho papers boxed in the Peo
ple's bank waa made, but no later will
was found and taking thia fact together
with the results of the Akocs' pursuit of
all theories as to a more recent will, the
idea of a later will was abandoned and
this afternoon the document found in
Mr. Putnam's law office was filed as the
last will and document of the late Hon.
Bailey Davenport. The conclusion to be
drawn is that either Mr. Davenport in
tended to have made another will later
in life or the thought had escaped his
mind entirely that the will herein given
had ever been made. It is appended in

The Abocs' estimate of the property
at $250,000 to f 300,000 ia held by a gen-
tleman who has been connected with the
county treasurer's office for years as too
low. This gentleman aaya that Mr. Dav

nnally, and that he figured the yalue of
thia real estate at an average value of
(300 per acre some of it is worth much
more, and some leaa aad that the result
was an estimated valuation of 91.200,000,

the amount of mortgages and debts, the
value of the estate may be placed at
