Sheriff Smut-xer will look into Co case. It may be that tha theory tf tha eab driver that tha woman waa Mra. Gunnese la correct. The Tribune's special Penrlee. LAPORTE, Ind., May 9. The mt Important and tntere-ting development In tha Gunness murder case to-day waa the statement made by Dr. II. II. Long, former coroner of Laporte county! that the body of tha woman found In the basement of the Gunness home, after the fire, waa not that of Mrs. Gunness. but of a much smaller woman. This carrlea out the theory advanced by the newspapermen who several daya ago advanced the belU-f that Mra. Gunnesa did not meet death In tha fire. Other Import apt developments are a follows: " Assistant Chlefof Police Schuettl-?r and Coroner Hoffman of Chicago, will on Monday start excavation In the yard and basement of Mrs. Gunness' former home In Austin, suburb of Chicago. Woman arrested as Mrs. Gunness proved to b Mra. I A. Herron, of Franklin. Pa. "Authorities nelteve that one of Mrs. Gunnesa victims was young man named Canary. ho lived at Pine lake, this county. Evldenca that tha mysterious trunks shipped to the Gunnesa farm from Chicago, contain I rulck l!m and not bodies of her victims, that the quick lime wa9 used to hasten decomposition of murdered persons. Assertion that Helglean waa murdered by Mra. Gunneas and an accomplice, ta strengthened by the discovery that he died In a terrible struggle, in which he tore hair from the? heads of hla assailants. The hair was still in his flngerleas hand when the remains were unearthed. The fingers were probably chopped off In they death struggle. Digging is Resumed. The work fef digging on the Gunnesa farm waa resumed to-day, only one man, however, being put at work. Up to 1 o'clock no -trace of addition. aJ bodtea had been discovered. The local authorities are endeavoring to trace a young man named Canary, who. It Is believed, may have been killed a) the Gunnesa home. A letter waa received this morning from hla mother, Mra. J. M. Canary, of Pine Lake. Ind.. saying that her son, about . 20 years oldj bad .disappeared and ahe ha had no word from him for almost two years. It ts known that young Canary -worked for Henry Plire. who lived about a quarter of a mile from the Gunneas farm.

Ill Long, of rthls city, who assisted at the post-mortem examina tion Over the remains of the supposed Mrs.; Gunness, Is confident that the body found n the ruhisj Is not that of Mra, Gunness. He bases his opinion on scientific: conditions. Ir. Long states that he found the foreheads of each of the i three children burned away. A sliull crushed! by a blow of any kind ahd then subjected to fire would be mtre likely td burn away at that point ps the heat of the fire would caus i the cartilage to burn away, at both sides. The head of the woman was! missing when the body waa found. The theory? that her head has been burned away Is discarded aa Dr. Long states that her head being subjected ti the same Idegree of heat aa the bodies of the (three children could not bi burned a why. "The bod at the Cutler morgue is not that of Mrs. i Gunnrss." Dr. Long declared, "in the first iplace it Is not porportloned Correctly. The body found In the rulr.si Is that of a rather plump woman of the same general contour, but weighing from 150 to 160 pounds. Mrs.; Gunnejsi tipped the scales at 225 pounds. Tje fact that one of the arms was biurned off the body of the woman found In the ruins Wads me to believe that It-Is one of la cadaver. The armiiwa frtund beside the body, nnd was (well farmed.

MORE THAN AN ACCIDENT Republicans Turn ta Agriculturists to Elect Ticket in Fall Elections. Effect of Local Option Already Felt. Tti Trlbuns'a Special Service INDIANAPOLIS, May 9 At the election next fall, 25 senators and 100 representatives are to be elected. These, with the 25 hold-over senators, will constitute the general assembly to elect a successor to James A. Hemcn-way, United States senator. Of the 25 senators to be nominated, the republicans have nominated 13. Of the 100 representatives, they have nominated 42. Eight of the 13 senatorial nominees are lawyers; eight of the 42 nominees for the house also follow the legal profession. in ine past republican legislatures have contained a majority of attorneys. The coming general .assembly. If republican, will probably contain more farmers than lawyers. At"ny rate, 12 of the nominees for representatives aro agriculturists. This Is hiore than an accident. The republicans will look to the farmers next fall to elect their ticket. Large titles and other centers of population are somewhat dissatisfied. County local optfbn and the metropolitan police law have tended to hurt the republican party In sections known for their liberal views. Hence, republican i are counting on the rural comunltlrs to "save" the state and for this renson they are will ing to let the farmers nominate their "own" for the legislature.

He contended that he i Is still nominally an Inmate of the Matteawan Institution, although brought here In the custody of the court ! while the habeas corpus proceedings lare pending. After hearing Mr. Mack, the court amended the ordr to apply only to Thaw's wearing apparel. District Attorney! Mack stated this morning that Duchess county will be spared a heavy bill of expenses through Justice Morschauser's willingness to hear the i relator's case In Poughkepsle and the people's case In New York.

The republican party has fought the fight for honesty and integrity in every office; and for swift and impartial enforcement of the laws. It advocates and enforces the maxim that a public office is a public trust, which mast be discharged with strict fidelity. In this work the republican party will not faltn or halt, bat will advance the cause of reform and better government as fast as the same can be wisely worked out, with the approval and continued support of jthe people. Our short legislative period limits the ability of the jeneral assembly to frame and enact all necessary legislation in one session. At the next session we recommend the passage of laws on tne following subjects: 1. A practical primary election law. '2. i A law revising and simplifying the practice in courts, and abolishing technicalities. 3. Our laws concerning public service and other corporations are scattered through the session laws since 1850, and axe confused, conflicting and often inadequate for present needs. We therefore recommend that a bill be framed prior to the meeting of the next legislature for its consideration, revising and amending the corporation laws, and better regulating the use of public franchises for the suppression of fictitious and watered stock, and carefully safeguarding the right of the people in the enjoyment of all public utilities.
