GET NO TRACE OF MATHESON
Deputy Sheriff Baker, Victim of the
hoot I a a. Has a. Good Chance
George Matheson, the young man who
shot and dangerously If not fatally
wounded Deputy Sheriff J. C. Baker of
thla city at Weston Thursday evening, and
who escaped after the shooting, had not
been captured up to a late hour last night.
He waa traced as far as Underwood, where
he has several relatives, who It Is thought
might shelter him, but he could not be
found. Sheriff Cousins, who, with a party
of officers, had been scouring the country
sll day yesterday In search of the fugitive.
left for Missouri Valley last night.
An Information charging Matheson with
assauJJ. with intent to murder was filed
yesterday in the court of Justice Ouren.
Constable Albert! and Detective Murphy,
armed with the warrant, made a search of
places northeast of the city, where It waa
thought nosxlhle Matheson might be In
hiding. They failed to secure any trace
of him and will start at an early hour this
morning to resume the search.
The district court grand Jury, at present
In session, took up the case yesterday
afternoon and is expected to return nn
Indictment against Matheson today. Deputy
Sheriff Knox, who after the shooting
started in search of young Matheson, re
turned to the city yesterday afternoon and
testified before the grand Jury. He left for
the country again last night to continue
Deputy Sheriff Bker was resting as
easily as could be expected at his home
yesterday and the attending physician. Dr.
H. B. Jennings, announced last evening
that be bad Straus hopes of his recovery.
unless some unforeseen complications arose.
No effort to locate the bullet was made
yesterday. The bullet, a 32-callbre, en
tered Just below, the ribs, about the center
of the body.
When Deputy Sheriffs Baker and Knox
went to Weston Thursday evening they
had no warrant for young Matheson, and
he was not at that time even suspected of
being Implicated In the burglary of the
store of Williams Barnes, about two
weeks ago, when Jewelry to the value of
nearly 8500 was stolen. Toung Matheson
had, however, made several statements
indicating that he knew where the stolen
Jewelry had been planted. It was for the
purpose of having Matheson locate the
plunder that the officers called at his house.
Matheson admitted knowing who com
mitted the robbery, but declared he wns
afraid to tell because he would be killed If
Accompanied by his father, Matheson
piloted the officers toward the Rock Island
depot and stock yards, and It was on the
way there that Deputy Knox noticed that
Matheson was carrying a revolver In his
hip pocket and called Deputy Baker's at
tention to the fact.
Matheson at first denied having a gun.
and when Deputy Baker made a motion as
If to touch the pocket In which the gun
was young Matheson who was standing
less than three feet away from Baker,
drew the revolver and opened fire, the first
shot striking Baker.
Deputy Knox drew his revolver, but be
fore he could use it Matheson's father
sprang In between him and his son, ex
claiming "Don't kill my son. Don't shoot
the boy." Before Knox could disengage
himself from the erasp of the father young
Matheson had started to run and was too
far away to be reached with a revolver
The fact that Matheson was armed with
a revolver and his conflicting stories leads
the authorities to believe that he was im
plicated in the Williams & Barnes robbery.
Matheson's father and brother Joined in
the search for the fugitive yesterday.

tFrom a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINE8, May 8.-A meeting of the
State Board or Educational Examiners
was held today with all the members pres
ent with the state superintendent. The
principal business of the meeting was to
j arrange all the preliminaries for the put
ting Into effect of the new law relating to
admission to examination for state cer
tificates of the graduates of certain schools
prepared for normal training. Heretofore
the only schools and colleges recognised
in the state were the state Institutions
and a number of the best colleges having
high grade normal courses, but a law
passed at the last session of the legislature
providing for recognition of certain other
secondary schools in the state In which
normal Instruction Is given. About a dosen
of the schools secured this recognition and
are prepared to turn out candidates for
teachers' state certificates. None of the
graduates of these schools have as yet been
examined. Today the state board provided
for blanks to be sent to the principals of
the schools and academies, to be filled out
with the names of graduates and for appli
cations from students who graduate. It
la expected that in this wsy a large num
ber of additions to the number of teach
ers holding state certificates will be made.
The board Is encouraging in every possible
way the teachers In securing state certi
ficates, and today the board effected some
modifications of the rules tending to make
it easier for applicants to secure examina
tion. Divorce Case From California.
A suit for divorce was commenced In the
district court here today by Ethel Wilson
Trepanler of Loa Angeles, Cal., against
Ernest Trepnnler, formerly and for many
yeurs a resident here and whose mother j
now lives In Des Moines . The petition re- i
cites that Trepanler and Mlsa Wilson were
married In Los Angeles In April, 1901, and
that he deserted her three days later and
has not lived with her since. She sets up
that after his marriage Trepanler specu
lated In oil and made $40,000, but that since
that time he has transferred all his prop
erty to his mother, and she Is accused of
being thus in conspiracy with the defend
ant to prevent the plaintiff from obtain
ing alimony in the suit. It Is understood
the defense w"l be that young Trepanler
was drunk at the time of his marriage
and .was not aware of. what he was doing

Killed a Horse Trader.
Edward Puckett was arrested at an early
hour this morning accused .of murdering
Alex Youcker, an itinerant horse trader.
Youcker had been living with his wife and
children In s tent 4n th :east part of the
city for several weeks. Yesterday after
noon Youcker and . Puckett, got Into a
quarrel over a horse trad snd a Ast fight
followed. Puckett struck Youcker on the
head with his fist and knocked him down,
and at this point there was Interference
and Puckett ran away. ' The Injury was
not supposed to be serious, but thla morn
ing Youcker died and Puckett was taken
from bed and placed under arrest. It ap
pears that Youcker had received a bad
wound In the head a few years ago in St.
Joseph and that Puckett happened to strike
him right where he had been previously
wounded, causing the rupture of a blood
vessel. It is beileved that under the cir
cumstances Puckett cannot be convicted of
anything stronger than manslaughter.
Resignation ( Dr. Green.
Rev. Dr. Thomas E. Green, rector of
Grace church In Cedar Rapids, last night

known men In Episcopal church circles In

Of Iowa at the time Morrison was elected
and his candidacy created almost a breik
In the church. It Is not known what are
the Intentions of Dr. Green. He had been
pastor at Cedar Rapids for fifteen years.
Churches Will Unite.
As a result of the agreement reached at
the church conference In Pittsburg by
which the work of the Congregational, ths
United Brethren nnd the Methodist Protes
tant churches Is to be d jni under one gen
eral management two of the leading East
Side churches In Dei Moln-s will be united.
Pilgrim Congregational and the Castle Me.
mortal United Brethren churches stand side
by side, both being strong churches an-t
having capable pastors, but under the
agreement made at Pittsburg churchei in
this position are to be united and the c n
gregatlons will get together. Both pistors
are willing that thla shall be done and fiat
one of the church buildings may be sold.
There are a number of other churches of
both denominations In the city, but no other
will be affected ai in this case.
ftettltnsT Railroad Dlfferenofs.
The railroad commissioners go to Storm
Lake on the llth to try to settle a little
difference between the Minneapolis & St.
Louis and the Milwaukee railroad com
panies relating to stock yards there. They
do not agree as to possession of certain
land and a way to get to the yards.
The commissioners go also to Mingo the
22d. where there Is comptajnt of poor drain

State I'nlveralty Fands.
The Iowa State university has fared very
well In the matter, of funds secured from
the special levy provided for by let'alatlve
enactment for building purposes. The legis
lature made a tpeClal 1-10 mill levy snl pro
vided that In case the taxes from this levy
should exceed $i5.0fO In any one year the
residue should go to the general funds. To
date the ui.lverslty has receive! the follow
ing on account 'of the taxes th-n levlel:
Tax for 1S93, r6l.V.30; tax for 1899. :ES,WI.4i;
tax for 190), 4.3J2.44; tax for 19'1, 55.62.45.
The only year when the receipts exceeded
the limit fixed by the legislature was for
the taxes of !1. and this small sum will
be turned back. The legislature then
doubled the tax, making It 1-5 mill, but re
moved the limit. This will give the State
university more than 1110.000 a year, and
with the added assessment may run It up
to 1125,000 a year, all for building purposes.
