which completely destroyed tho

was no extra chauffeur at the garago

MAN THOUGHT AFRAID
DISAPPEARED JAN. 4
AIox OutoTMn, In Doubt As to How
Ho Hhould Kill In UK Question
naire, Ilcllevcd to Have
Taken Otrn Life.
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Because he was afraid to fill out
his questionnaire, it Is bcllovcd that
Alex Gustovson, an employe of tho
Drooks-Scanlon mill, took his own
llfo on January 4. His body was ills
covered In a etnai: ravrne on. tho
homestead of Ole Erickson, one
fourth of a mllo northeast of the
brickyard lato yostcrday, when Mr.
Krickson was engaged In cutting
Coming upon a light colored over
coat hanging on a fallen tree oror a
ledge, the homesteader investigated
nnd discovered tho body lying at tho
foot of tho ledge, which Is about 12
feet high. It was In a frozen stato
and this Is probably responsible for
it being so well preserved. Soma
small animal had gnawed tho wrists,
but othoruise only brulsos and what
appears to he a bullot wound wero
found. Krickson, badly frightened,
notified the sheriff and an Investiga
tion was immediately put under way.
ltwas!earned that Gustovson had
received his questionnaire from lha
foul board at Emmelt, Idaho, his
former home, on the morning ot Jan
uary 4. Ha told his landlady that ho
was going to call on the war board
and cat naatatance in filling It out
and probably would not be back tu
time tor lunch. This was the last
anyone saw of hlui until the body
was brought to light yesterday.
Search Previously Made.
Friends hail searched for him as
far as CHne Falls and reported his
disappearance to Sheriff Roberts.
Later they Informed him that a card
had been received from Portland say
ing ho was thore and would remain
In tho city until dratted. At this, no
further thought was given to his
Gustovson had been worried about
tho way in which ha was to fill in hht
questionnaire, as ho had registered
as an alien. Upon seeing tho ques
tions regarding dato of arrival In tub
country, means ot getting horo and
others, he discovered his mistake and.
that ho was really a citizen ot tho
United States. This confused him
and ho was at a loss as to what to do.
He probably sought tho quickest way
to end his doubts.
Krickson said ho h?d not known
of Gustovson's presence on tho home
stead. Tho land Is comparatively
level with tho exception of tho ledge,
which Is tit tho opposlto end of tho
property from which Krickson had
been working. A dead tree had fall
en over tho ledgo and Gustovson had
hung his ovorcoat thoro. His hat
was thrown undornouth it, A .32
cnllbor revolver and a small mirror
woro found Just nt tho top of tho om
bnnkmont. Ono chamber of tho for
mer was ompty. Thoro woro four ro
malnlug shots. Tho man had appar
ently taken his lifo whilo sitting on
tho ledgo In suoh a position that ho
would drop oft onto tho sharp brok
on rooks bolow. Tho head is badly
hrulsod, but n dark spqt on ono tem
ple Is supposed to bo whero tho bullot
.-Money Still On Hmly.
From general appearances tho body
must havo lain in tho ravlno two or
throo weoks. It was frozen solid.
In tho clothing was found tho ques
