MONDAY, OCTOBER G, 1917 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS FBI Seeks Clue To Missing Man Prominent Attorney Disappears From Havana Bound Ship IiV DICK WEST (Uiiilcil ]> rpss staff Cnrrrsriondenll MIAMI. p: a . r Oct. 6. (UP)—Customs officials and agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation attempted today to pick up the (rail of a wealthy Chicago attorney who mysteriously dropped from sight I Cjlj^ile supposedly on a ple.isant sea ; ^Pyage to Cuba. Albert Mathcson. 47-year-old retired lawyer from the Windy City, disappeared Wednesday without n trace after boarding the S S. Florida, a liner on the P. and O. Steamship Company's overnight run between Miami and Havana. The next morning the boat docked at Havana, and Matheson's absence was noted when he faileil to cheek through Cuban customs. The story leaked out later that the prominent man was missing. The FBI declined to comment on Hie investigation In its present staga but an agent of the steamship line indicated that officers were not telling all they knew regarding the mystery. "There is an angle to the proposition that we aren't putting out so far," said Agent R. B. Prebcl. Another steamship agent R. W, Parker, said there was a possibility that Matheson may have never sailed with the ship. "I could guess anything." he said. "He may have gone aboard with his luggage and then left. He may still be right back in Florida, or even back in Chicago." Awhile on the mainland Mathe- Wn stayed at a hotel on Miami Beach. He checked out Wednesday —the day he was to have sailed— without leaving a forwarding address. He gave hts Chicago address as 1042 Argyle St. When he bought passage to Havana he insisted on having a stateroom to himself and the agents assured him that since the ship was not crowded this could be arranged to suit him. After his disappearance was noted, a purser led officers to Matheson's cabin. His pajamas were laid out on the bed as if he had started to retire. The bed had not been slept in. Two pieces of expensive luggage were in the room.
