MURDERED IS LOCATED
CX.KAJI tiAKIS, la,, Nov. 27. (Special.)
Good Thanksgiving news was received
from Bpokane, Wash., today In tho brief
message that W. Somervllle Colby was
still living. About six month ago the
new wa heralded over the country that
hehad been killed on his ranch. Hi
mother, who lived near him, knew that
he had received sovorat threatening tet
ter to vacate his claim or he would be
killed. He did not listen to the threat
and one morning, after an absence ot
some time, he was sought after at his
cottage, but could not bo found. After
duo time and long search It waa gener
ally believed that he had been killed,
and the mother commenced proceedings
to collect his life Insurance. It wa
learned a short tlmo ago that a man
answering his description was In attend
ance at one ot the state colleges and Dr.
Max Charlton, another Clear I.ake boy,
went and ' made the examination and
found the missing W. Somervllle Colby.
Colby professed that he did not know
his name and the opinion prevailed that
he wa mentally unbalanced and he Is
now In custody of officers. He wa for
a number of years county surveyor of
Cerro Gordo county. It Is thought that
the threat made upon his llfo and his
isolated life and the ranch ten or more
mile from neighbor, unseated his mind.

Plan to Chnnnre Insurance Lutt.
It Is known that for tho first time In
tho history of legislation on tho subject
of Insurance the old lino companies and
tho mutuals have reached an agreement
In favor of the repeal of tho Iowa law
which forbids combinations for the mak
ing of rate In Insurance, For a long
time the old lino companies have been
moving to have the law repealed. They
claim that as a matter of fact the law
prevent them doing business In the state
at fair rates and as a result the Iowa
companies aro being driven to the watl.
But the mutuals have always held out
for tho law. Now, at a recent meeting
ot tho association of mutuals, they came
out strongly for a repeal of tho law and
a new statute forbidding rate cutting or
deviation from the established rates
mado by some central authority. It Is
therefore expected that in the near fu
ture the anti-compact law will be re
pealed. Favor loirn. nntldlnir at Kxpositlon.

proposed that a meeting be held In Des

of Interesting the business mon ot the

Chairman Clifford Thorne of tho Iowa
railroad commission, and E, P. Blpley.
president of the Sante Fe railroad, con
tinue their correspondence regarding rail
road values and the possible benefits to

In his last letter to Ripley, the Iowa
chairman states that In addition to thn

road operation, the public would, under
government ownership, secure an Im
mense profit In the Increased value of the
lands owned by the railroads. For In
stance, tho lands of tho Northern Pacific

Very much of the Increase of value on
some of the roads In Iowa was repre

J. H. Henderson, commerce counsel for
Iowa, returned today from Washington,
where as a member of the committee
looking after rate matters, he attended
the preliminary hearing on the proposal
of eastern railroads for a 5 per cent In
crease In all their rates. The railroad
companies have started out with a strong
showing and It seems certain that un
less something new is turned up in the
case, that the commission will grant the
Increased rates In the east This will be
followed, In the opinion of the railroad
commissioners, with a case to secure an
advance In rates l,n the west.
