HATflESON STILL AT LARCE
Bloodhonndi Eefusg to Take the Cold Trail
of the Weston Boy.
FATHER THINKS HE HAS KILLED HIMSELF
Miiitl From Boob fays Tonif
Man Answering Ilia Description
Wu Injared by Cara ta
The attempt to track George Matheson,
the young man who shot Deputy Sheriff
Baker Thursday evening at Weston, failed
and Sheriff Cousins and hla deputies, ac
companied by the four hounds and their
owners returned to the city early yester
day morning! The dogs could not be in
duced to take the trail and seemed entirely
at a loss. This was not unexpected, as the
hooting occurred Thursday evening and
the dogs were not taken to the scene un
til lata Saturday night.
A Coat and shoe said to have been worn
by the fugitive were given the hounds to
acent, but they failed to take the trail.
Several attempts to get them to take up
the scent at the scene of the shooting were
made, but the doK failed to work.
The failure of the authorities to secure
any tiace of Matheson lead the young
man's family to believe that he has com
mitted suicide and that sooner or later
his dead body will be found not very, far
distant from his home. The father ot the
young man says that his son had no money
with him tho night of the shooting to en
able him to get away any distance. Cards
bearing a picture of the fugitive and his
aescrlptlon was stnt broadcast over the
country yesterday by Sheriff Cousins. The
pictures show Matheson to be a young man
of handsome features and having anything
out tne appearance of a criminal.
1 ne board of county supervisors will
meet In adjourned session today, when it
Is said It will be asked to offer a reward
for the capture of young Matheson.
Word was received from Boone yester
day thnt a young man answering the de
scription of Oeorge Matheson had been run
over and severely injured by a train. The
young fellow had In his possession two re
volvers and two boxen of cartridges. His
Injuries resulted In the amputation of one
of his arms. He refuses to disclose his
identity and claimed to be from Chicago.
Sheriff Cousins left for Boone last evening
to see If he could identify the young fellow.
Deputy Baker's condition was much lm
proved yesterday and last night gave re
newed hopes for his recovery.

Tonight. The result of the meeting of the board of
trustees of the free publlo library tonight
la being looked forward to with much in
terest by t.lje people. ffCounciljpiuJT gen
erally, The board Is expected to take some
definite action on the appointment of an
architect for the Carnegie building, and
the trustees have aa yet failed to give any
intimation of what they Intend doing in
At the last general meeting of the Com
mercial club a resolution was adopted re
questing the library board to employ a
firm of local architects, but whether this
expression of the publlo wishea will have
the desired effect remains to be seen. It
la no secret that several member of the
library board are in favor of securing the
cervices of a certain firm of architects In
Chicago. Among tha members who have
ao expressed themselves' are Mr. Everett
and W. 8. Balrd.
Another Important matter to come be
fore the library board is the question of
title to the Shugart property selected as
the site for the Carnegie building. City
Solicitor Snyder, to whom the matter waa
referred, has given It a hla opinion that
the title la defective and that to avoid
possible future litigation the board should
institute the proper proceeding to condemn
the property, a right It has by law.
Opponents, to the Shugart site are hoping
that the rVct that the title to the property
ha been declared defective may Incline
the board to reconsider It action and make
a selection of some other site to which it
can obtain unquestioned title without in
curring the expense of condemnation pro
ceedings. That such a -move would meet
with the popular favor la conceded.

then applied to the cavity and It was dried
out with hot air, after which the place of
the excised bone was filled with a com-

BIOUX FALLS, B. D.. May 10 (Special.)
A grand council of all the Sioux Indians
belonging on the Rosebud reservation-
whlch is the largest and most populous In
the country will be held next Friday for
the purpose of deciding an important ques
tion regarding the use of the surplus lands
of the reservation by white cattlemen as
grating grounds for their herds. Hereto
fore permit have been Issued to the whit
cattlemen. It has been discovered by the
Indians, who are becoming shrewd busi
ness men, that on other reservations where
the surplus lands are leased outright to
white cattlemen, the Indians have received
a greater sum than on reservatlona where
the permit system has been In vogue. The
Indians on the Cheyenne river reservation
last year received 824.74 per capita by the
leasing of their surplus lands nearly five
times aa much as was received from the
Issuance of permits for grazing on the
Rosebud reservation. The council, of In.
Clans on the Rosebud reservation will
doubtless deride by practically a unani
mous vote to substitute the leasing fo
the permit system on tha reservation In

1 4,000 Jadgment.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, May lrt. (8peclal.) The
more than 2,000 miles of new railroad pro
Jected in tha state of Iowa this year will
be commenced as soon as the weather will
J permit Some of the work Is now under
construction, having been a pan or con
tracts not finished last year. Much of that
which Is slleged to be projected will not be
built at all, or at least not for several
years. The track of the Great Western
from Manning Into Council Bluffs will cer
talnly be finished this year, but it I doubt
ful if the line to Sioux City will be" con
tructed. The cut-off of the Burlington
from Oskaloosa to Tracy, twelve miles. Is
now practically completed. The Milwaukee
cut-off from Davenport to Ottumwa la al
most done, twenty miles of the seventy-six
having been laid last year. The work of
construction of the Newton & Northwest
ern is regarded as certain as contracts have
been let for a part of the distance and
work is now In progress. The part from
Gowrle to Rockwell City and the part
from Fraser to Boone is now being built.
The Rock Island has a proposed route
south from Eldon, but nothing has been
done. Portions of the Illinois Central and
of the Great Western are to be rebuilt and
straightened out this year. Some construc
tion work Is actually being done on the
Iowa A St. Louis near Centervllle. The
Des Moines Southern Is a sure go and the
work between Wlnteraet and Greenfield
will commence very soon. It I not true
that this road ha been sold to the Great
Western, but It will be operated by the
Great Western. Among routes projected
are the Pella ft Southwestern, a short line;
the Dubuque & Western from Dubuque
to Boone; the Dubuque, Vinton ft
Southern, from Dubuque to New
ton; the Des Moines, Iowa City
ft Eastern, to Muscatine; the Charlton
Valley, south from Centervllle; the De
Moines ft Northern Iowa, to Minneapolis,
and the Charlton, Knoxvllle ft Southern.
Case Taras oa Oae Word.
Tha supreme court of Iowa ha been ap
pealed to for reopening a case decided at
the last term of court last month under
peculiar circumstances. The whole case
hinges on one word, and that word was
left out of the abstract which went to the
supreme court by mistake, and ita being
left out caused a reversal of the case. It
waa the damage case of Defrlese against
the Illinois Central railroad, from Hardin
county, a personal damage suit, which re
sulted In a verdict of 14,000. The court
ordered a new trial in April, but did so
on the ground that one instruction of the
court waa erroneous, pointing out that if
the word "such" had been Inserted at
certain place the Instruction would have
been all right and expressing the surmise
that this was left out of the record by
miBtake. Inasmuch a the trial judge who

tha lnJured roan a,k the to roopen
the case and ahow that the word "auch"
waa actually in the instruction, and the
court ha already decided that with thla
word in the Instruction waa all right. But
it is not usual for court to go back to
correct an error of thla kind. The attorney
who prepared the abstract waa the late
John F. Duncombe of Fort Dodge, and it is
not considered possible for a moment that
the error wa made deliberately. The at
torney for the plaintiff is Judge Blrdsall,
the successor of Speaker Henderson in the
Third district. He atatea that he did not
file an amendment to the original abstract
because he had the utmost faith In Mr.
Duncombe and did not even read the ab
stract carefully. Whether the supreme

paper to cost a man $14,000 remalna to be

Last week many high school students
had aulte afl '"easy time" on account of
the number of teacher on the sick list.
Mrs. Fleming and Mrs. Sudborough were
detained at home the entire week on
account of Illness, while Miss Paxson,
Madame Chatelaine and Miss Mansfield
were each absent a day. Often when a
teacher is absent some of the seniors who
have an hour free are asked to teach the
class, but last week It would have keDt
all the seniors busy the entire week If
they wanted to take an absent teacher s
class, so the students who were without
teachers were given a study hour in place
or meir usual recitation.
The seniors are now beginning to make
their usual preparations for graduation.
As was done laxt year fix orations will
be delivered on commencement. The class
day exercises will not be given at the
opera house, as was done heretofore.
Forty-five students are competing to give
orations on commencement. All of them
were handed In on Friday and will be sent
to the university next week: there a
committee composed of members of the
faculty examine them. The fifteen best
will he chosen and sent back snd the six
best will be selected from the fifteen which
the university decides upon. Mr. Water
house has been teaching a class In oratory

bers of this class can compete. All stu

ileged to add 10 per cent to any one of
their yearly averages.
