Word was received at the sheriff's office yesterday morning that a young man an swering the description of George Matheeon had been seen near Mondamin. It Is known that Matheson has a number of relatives living in that vicinity, and ever since the hunt for the fugitive began It waa thought possible that he would seek shelter there. According to the report received at the sheriffs office, the young fellow suspected of being Matheson conversed with a boy, who told his name to tae stranger, and the latter replied: "I think I know your brother, he worked at Weston, did he not?" The boy's brother had at one time worked In the postofflce at Weston. The stranger was noticed to wear a ring on the left hand, the same as Matheson did. Deputy Sheriff Knoa left for Mondamin as soon as possible after receipt of the report. He telephoned back yeeterday afternoon that he was hot on the trail of the suspect, who had driven north towards Onawa In a covered wagon.

For treasurer there are now four actively at work an two more who will announce themselves as soon as the date for the caucus Is an nounced. There are but two candidates so far anonunced for member of the biard. It Is an unwritten law among the members of the party that an efficient officer shall have the second nomination, and as County Superintendent Abbott has served but onr term he will be conceded the nomination.

TEST THE IOWA PAROLE LAW Prisoner Allegti Bit Time is Up, bat ths Authorial 8ay Not. TWO ARE FREED FROM MURDER CHARGE Des Moines Ministers Advocate Re strletloa of Marriages and a Cam. mission ta Baaaslaa Appli cants for Meease. (From a 8taff Correspondent.) DES MoiN&S, May 1L topecial.) Gov ernor Cummins today received word from Warden Hunter of the Anamosa peniten tiary that suit had been commenced In Jones county to secure the release on habeas corpus of Frank Davis, a convict serving time there. Davis had been sent up from Clinton county In 1S91 for seven teen years for murder in the second de gree. About two months before he would have been released, counting his good time, he was paroled by Governor Shaw. This was in August, 1900, but Davis became a bad man again and waa found living with a woman to whom he was not married, in Norwich, Conn. .He was sent for and placed In the penitentiary again last Febru ary for having violated his parole. As a part of the revocation of the parole he was made to lose his good time, amounting to over seven years. He now contends that this was Illegal and that he is entitled to release, as he has lived out the full time, counting the good time. The attorney gen eral prepared papers for a defense and sent them to Senator Ellison at Anamosa to appear and defend the case. The matter has been brought to the attention of gov ernors before, but no convict has ever sought to make a test of it In the courts. The governor and the wardens are anxious to have the matter tested and find out what are the rights of the governors in such eases. Iowa has no parole law proper, but the parole regulations are whatever the governors may see fit to adopt. Two Indicted Ones Released. In the district court today on motion of the county attorney, the indictments against George Beverige and Jack and Carrie Aaron were dismissed. . They were Indicted with James Burns for the murder of Jerry Corcoran by administering mor phine for purposes of robbery. Burns was sent up for life: The county attorney an nounced that he had no case against ths others. They had turned state's evidence agalnat Burns and the latter'S attorney made some resistance on the ground that it was a deal to make a scapegoat out of his client while the others, who were equally guilty, would be allowed to go free. The Aarons were living here under the name of Batlesa, and were well known In northwest Iowa and northern Nebraska as hard characters. Restriction of Marriages. Before the City Ministerial association today Rev. B. F. Avery advocated a com mission to regulate marriages, or a com mission in each county for the regulation of licenses. He would have a commission consisting of three men and three women, Including some physicians, and have all ap plicants ror marriage licenses appear be fore this commission before they could be allowed to prooure 'licenses. The associa tion refused to take action formally ap proving the plan.., but It was freely dis cussed. The Tact was further brought out that where justices of the peace perform the marriages divorces are much more common . than where they are performed by ministers of the gospel.' Fairfield was terrorised last night, when a burglar with a tallow candle and a pistol went about town robbing the houses. At the McCresney home as the man went over the back fence the sheriff came in the front door. The burglar is still at large. Little booty seems to have been secured, but half a dosen or more houses were en tered. Prominent Man Ineaae. The case of James Duff us, m member of the Soldiers' Home at Marshalltown, who has been adjudged Insane and taken to the asylum at Clarinda. Is of considerable interest all over the state, as he was at one time a prominent politician and very wealthy.

Later he con ducted the Florence hotel there and at one time was worth 240,000. He was a prominent Mason. He served In the civil war about one year In Company B, Forty-ninth Iowa Infantry. He came to tho home In 1891. For some time Duffus' mind haa been fall ing. He recently became Imbued with the belief that some one wanted to kill him and lived in constant dread of his enemy. He not only feared for himself, but thought the same party was seeking the life of Commandant Horton. Because of hla oast brilliant record the authorities were anxious to have him cared for at the home as long as he should live, but his condition became such that it was absolutely necessary to remove him. , IOWA POSTMASTER HELD UP Old Man Compelled ta Clva Ip Con tents at Safe ta Hiiswsr. men.
