GUN IS DISCOVERED Butte, Mont., June 18.—Indications that William Mahan, c.v- i convict sought iu the ; Weyerhaeuser kidnaping case, may have been in Butte as la,te as' Firlday, ^yere seen today in an announcement from officers that an j .automatic Luger gun, which otild be converted into a sub-machine gun, had been found in the Butte illy dump. | Mrs. Josephine Rasmussdn, of Butte, reported to officers | that she was at the city dump on both Thursday and Friday of last; week and was positive that the gun was not there on her first visit. It was partly buried in a trash!heap, she told Sheriff Larry Weir, i A close connection between the finding of the gun and the kid- naping of 9-year-old George Weyerhaeuser of Tacoma was seen in the fact 'that Mrs. Rasmussen said the gun had been wrapped in. either a Salt Lake City Or Tacoma newspaper. At the time of her discovery, she did not thing to keep the wrapping and the ijapers were lost. j While Butte officials woreljoccu- pied with tho finding of thu gun. it reported that a man named Gregory Martin, 26, had been arrested in Yellowstone Park and was\ being held for federal offl- cers.\ Tha man was said to be an ex- convict with scars and physical markings very similar to the long-sought Mahan. Martin, told officers, it was learned, that ho knew Mahan. It was because of this fact that be was being is was believed. held, A third lead In the case proved groundless today when a man was closely questioned near Bntte, after being mistaken tor Mahan. He was washing clothing when approached by officers, but proved his true identity and was not held. It was ascertained that the gun in the dump was a type that could be converted into a sub-machine gun by the substitution of a different type of cartridge clip. It is not known whether or not Mahan was armed 'but it was believed unlikely that an expensive gun of this type would be thrown away by anyone but a fugitive. Mahan ihas been at large since a week ago Sunday, when he abandoned his car and $15,555 of the $200,o6o Weyerhaeuser ransom here. Several reports have been received that men answering big description have been seen, but officers have maintained such a close guard- on all roads- leading from Butte that it was believed he may have been hiding with friends! until the excitement died down.
