Omaha, Oct. 20.- Posses of citizens and officers were returning to Osceola, Iowa, from an unsuccessful hunt begun yesterday for four men who escaped after fatally shooting one man and wounding three others who were attempting to capture them near Osceola. The four men are believed to be the ones who robbed the post office and three stores at Columbia, Ia., a village near Osceola earlier today.

Charles Jones, a farmer, was fatally shot, dying several hours later, following an attempt to stop the men after they had wounded Dr. L. W. Miller, C. H. Fuller, both of Murray, Iowa and John Miller of Osceola. Fuller was being taken to Des Moines today in a critical condition, Eatonís condition, however, is not regarded as serious. Miller is expected to recover.

The gunmen escaped in an automobile.
