Elkader people will be interested in reading the following from the Inter Ocean about Senator Bayless' nephew:

"Harry King Bascom, who deserted from the battle-ship Kearsarge last June, after a mutiny, surrendered to the authorities here to-day. Bascom enlisted at Chicago two years ago, and gives himself up now that he may take steps to gain possession of a fortune inherited from a wealthy uncle in Iowa. He was sent back to the Brooklyn navy yard to-day."

Elkader Argus, Wed., 21 Jan. 1903. Local Items column. From the Inter Ocean, date and where published unknown.
