(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Aug. 24. (Special.) Gov
ernor Cummins has returned from an out
ing at the lakes In northern Iowa and Is
being urged to offer a reward for the arrest
of persons connected with the Tuman mur
der In Muscatine county. The case Is
beginning to attract a great deal of at
tention tn eastern Iowa. Mr. and Mrs.
Jesse Tuman were murdered at their home
in the country, about six miles from Musca
tine, and It la now believed the motive
was robbery. Tuman and his wife lived In
a lonely cabin by the riverside and when
the bodies were found there was nothing
In the cabin of value, but neighbors knew
that they had possessed some valuable
pearls only a few days before the murder.
These pearls were worth not less than
(1,000, and they cannot now be accounted
for. A number of different persons have
been arrested, but it is believed the right
one has not been found. It was known
that Tuman had planned to sell the pearls
and go to Nebraska and buy a farm, but
It la not known that he did sell them. A
man named Dan Williams who lived near
and has not been seen since Is strongly
suspected of the murder. The governor will
probably offer a reward unless something
turns up new In the case In a few days.

Flying the Insurgent flag, Boyaca is now
guarding the entrance to Panama harbor,
presumably with the intention of prevent
ing steamers or other vessels from bring
ing government reinforcements to Panama.
Nothing definite la known on the Isthmus
of the situation of General Morales Berti at
Agua Dulce, but many persons believe that
the general after withstanding a siege of
several days, during which his forces were
subjected, chiefly at night, to a severe ar
artillery fire from the Insurgents, perceived
the hopelessness ot rscelving reinforce
ments and supplies from Panama and was
forced to surrender the troops of his com
mand to the Insurgents.
The Insurgent forces In the Agua Dulce
district are said to number between 2,000
and 8,000. Associated with General Berti in
the defense ot Agua Dulce was General
Castro, who gained notoriety at the previous
battle of Agua Dulce.
Herrera Haa Colossal Task.
If the reported surrender of the govern
ment forces at Agua Dulce Is true, the
Insurgent general, Herrera, is confronted
by a big problem to provide food and shel
ter for and to control thla large and hos
tile element Owing to the fact that tho
government line of communication between
Panama and Agua Dulce Is broken but lit
tle news reaches Panama from the seat ot
war, although the contending forces are

Rumors are current that several detach
ments of Insurgents have been seen at
various stations on the railroad line be
tween Colon and Panama, and attack at
either end of the line is expected, in some
quarters, to occur at any time. Because
of the presence of tho Insurgents on the
railway, the government is anxloua to ob-.
tain reinforcements aa soon as possible.
Fresh trouble la aald to ba brewing in
the interior, and owing to the refusal of
th steamship companies to carry troops,

The government's vessel. General Fin-
con, arrived at Cartagena a ' week ago
from Colon. It Is now said to be Impos
sible tor General Pinzon to again go to
sea in its present condition. Important
parts of its machinery have been com
pletely ruined. Pinzon was formerly the
American yacht Namouna. It waa bought
by the Colombian government and entered
its service lsst summer.
Government officials In the Isthmus as
sert that the newly acquired government
cruiser Cartagena will shortly bring troops
to the Isthmus. In other quarters it is
said Cartagena Is not at Savanna, but
baa gone to Santa Marta, whence it will
proceed to Trinidad, in connection with the
detention there of Llbertador, which has
been in the service of the Matoso revolution
against President Castro of Venezuela.
Tho Colombian government recognizes
the revolutionary situation to be serious.
Many persons question the ability of the
insurgents to hold Colon if they attack
and capture that port, owing to the fact
that they possess no gunboats on the At
lantic aide. Tho government is endeavor

FIGHT FOR A WIFE,
Government '' Holds Emigrant Olrl
from Her Betrothed Husband.
After working four yeara for enough
money to send back home in Italy and get
the girl to whom he was engaged, reports
the New York Post. Lulgl Burglo now finds
that, be baa got to go to court and fight the
United States government for permission for
her to land. '
Burglo aent tba girl enough money for
her to buy her wedding finery and a seo-
ocd-class cabin ticket to -New York. But
the girl determined to sacrifice a few things
snd took steerage. Here is where their
troublea began. ... j
On arrival at Ellis island In July Maria
waa held up by the doctors on the regis
try Una and sent to. the hospital for ob
servation, owing to ye trouble, - which
eventually developed into trachoma, a dis
ease for which hundreds of immigrants are
deported every year. The edict finally went
forth that the, girl must go back. Tbe spe
cial Inquiry board ordered her deported on
the doctor's report, and she waa to have
returned to. Italy on a ahip sailing this
week.' But Burglo, securing the services
t a notary public, drew up a marriage con
tract between himself .and the girl, which,
when signed and acknowledged, constituted
a legal marriage under the laws 'of New
York state. ' Armed with this document,
Burglo applied for a writ of habeas corpus
for his 'Wife, whom he claimed waa made
an American citizen by the marriage, and
is now being Illegally detained by the Im
migration authorities. Washington advised
the local authorities thst under the United
States Immigration ststute the woman was
not within, the country when the marriage
was entered into and abe must not be al
lowed to land. If permission should be
granted in her eaae. It was said, it would
pave tbe path tor almost unlimited oppor
