Denver. 9qc. 8. A special to tho
News from Las Vegas. N. M , says:
D. II. Howard, a catt'.e dealer ol
Abilene, Kan., who ia $40,000 short on
Gillett. the Kansas plunder, passed
through Las Vegas this morning en
route from Mexico to Topeka, where
he will ask the governor to issue
rcquisi ion pa per J for the transfer of
Gillett Into the custody of the Kansas
state authorities. Howard and two
detectives have been on Gillett'a trull
for ten days. They dibcovered his
whereabouts in Chihuahua City. With
him is the Fort Worth attorney,
Troxall, who helped him in his flight.
G.llett would have been promptly
arrested but for the defective extradi
tion laws. It was considered best to
leave the two detectives to shadow
them until such time as matters could
be arranged to capture and extradite
him without the possibility of a hitch
in the proceedings. Governor Ahu-
ma da was called upon. Howard says
the governor treated him most kindly
and after hearing hi9 statement and
the story of Gillett's conduct very
strongly intimated that, notwithstand
ing the extradition law9, properly
executed legal documents on behalf 01
the American authorities would letch
Gillett back to Kansr.s.
Lonely Death of Reclame.
St. Joseph, Mo. , Dec. 8. William
Owens, who came here from Omaha
three years ago, lies dead at the
morgue in this city, and if his body is
not claimed soon it will be given to a
medical college for dissection. He
had a large sum of money at the time
of his death, but it cannot be found.
I Owens was 50 years old and a recluse.
He lived alone in a lodging bouse
while he was in this city and was found
dying there by the city physician. He
said he had.sold a farm in JNebras-Ka
before he came. here and had several
thousand dollars at the same time.
Since he died the bank9 have been
searched but the money cannot be
found. Owen said he had two broth
ers in this state and one in Iowa, but
would not give.their address.
A man by the name of William
Owens at one time resided out on the
Platte bottom, leaving here about ten
years ago and those who remember
him think it probable that he is the
man whose death ia mentioned in the
above telegram. He had a brother in
the employ of the Burlington as engi
neer at the same time.
First Special Pension Kills.
Washington. Dec. 8. The first of
the sjecial pension bills growing out
of the Spanish-American war to be in
troduced at the present session is that
of Representative Gillett of Massachu-
seeta to pension the widow of Captain
Dickinson, Seventeenth United States
infantry, mortally wounded during
the fight at El Caney on July 1 last.
Other bills of this character coming
over from last session are those to pen
sion the mother of W7orth tsagley, tne
naval ensign, who lost his life on the
torpedo boat Winslow during- the
bombardment of Cardenas, and to pen
sion tha widow of Captain Gridley,
commanding Admiral Dewey's nag-
ship Olympia, during the battle of
All bills relating to the Spanish-
American war goes to the pensions
committee, as the committee on in
valid pensions which handles the
great bulk of pension affairs, is re
stricted to the civil, war. Chairman
Rav of the committee on invalid pen
sions said today that he did not look
for any general pension legislation
growing out of the recent war.
Floor Trust Not Complete.
New Yobk, Dec. 8. The Times
tomorrow will sav: Thamas Mclntyre
of the Arm of Mclntyre & Ward well
returned from Europe by the steam
ship Majestic yesterday. Mr. Mcln
tyre tacitly admitted that his mission
abroad was to. endeavor to effect a
consolidation of the milling interests.
He declined positively to make a
statement as to his success or failure
or to endorse assertions made in this
regard by friends or others. Some
insisted that if Mr. Mclntyre had
gained his point with the English
shareholders of the Pillsbury-Wash
burn company he would hasten to an
nounce it. Others said that it was a
significant fact that members of Mr.
Mclntvre's firm 6aid on Wednesday
that he had not by cable informed
them if he had been successful and
that no word had come from the Pills-bury-
