'Deputy .Sheriff .A./ u. Davis has returned after, a miles-long chase of two Gorham men^ following three alleged hold-ups committed at the .-town Sunday night, says the'Independent: ".The officer .says the men, one an ex-convict, fled Gorham and took refuge in the wilds of "Big Hill." He said he preferred to 'not disclose the mames .of the fugitives, in ' the -hope •that they might return, to- Gorham. The young'sou of-Sidney .Vanover •was not only held up, the story goes out .was severely "beaten. ..He is said to have been hit between .the eyes •with a heavy iron nut on a short stick. . According to Deputy Davis the "ex- convict called at -the Va-nover home and asked if he could see the boy ;who was beaten. • The boy's sister met him. at the door. S-he said: "You ; k ought to want to see him. You're one of the men who. heat him." And the man is quoted as replying: "Good-'bye!. 'Jt^.will, T: mean fourteen years for me if I am caught." Deputy Davis says that this man then got -in touch with his holdup companion, of the" night before, anil that the two fled to the wilds of "Big ' Hiii.'" • • - • ; .--..• -.-•--.-•• -' The officer got the call-to Gorham Monday morning and left Bryan's train at Fountain Bluff. He .and bottoms men then scaled the hill ani trailed two men far across it and continued on trail down the "canyon" —through the Munz farm, finally losing track.. o£ the quarry. On arriving here the deputy learned that the fugitives had been seen at Grand Towel'. Duff Cady, notorious at Grand .Tower, for getting "had ones" dead or alive, was reported to be after them. No additional word from Grand Toweryhad been ifeceived early today and it is believed the „ men escaped. At the-home of Mayor 'Thomas Dunn at Gorham- Tuesday, in the absence of the mayor,- it was stated that the so-called hold-ups of Sun- slay night may have been more "imagination" than fact. It was said at Gorham today that two of the three men accosted and stopped by the two: alleged hold-ups had ibeen robbed of _their- overcoats, and that the Vanover "boy, who was assaulted, was not badly hurt. The young man's father was in. Murphysbofo Tuesday. Lowden Files For President in Illinois SPRINGFIELD, 111.,,-Feb. .24.—Gov. ernor Frank O.
