XL ill, NO. 308 FOND DU LAC, WISCONSIN, THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 1913 PRICE TWO CENTS WILLIAM DYER'S BODY RECOVERED; IS FOUND NEAR SCENE OF WRECK Jesuit Missionary at Juneau, Alaska, Wires that Body MORE COMPLEX is Positively Identified and is Being Held at Juneau-News is Confirmed NOT MORE CRITICAL SEARCHERS DETECT OBJECT ON WAVES Body Will be Sent to Kaukauna for Interment Where Wife and Infant Child of Dead Man Lie SOLVING THE HUERTA PUZZLE Buried-Four Bodies Missing One of the distressing leaturcs ot the State of California shipwreck in Cambier Bay Sunday the faJlurc- to recover the body of William A. Dyer of this city who perished in the disaster, was relieved today when a message came trom Father Braun, a Jesuit missionary, at Juneau, Alaska, gaying that the body of Dyer has been recovered from the sea and it is now at Juneau waiting transportation to Seattle. Searchers who have been at the scene of the tragedy since the boat went down Sunday morning espied a black object floating upon the sea. Investigation revealed that it was a body of a man, and later it was found that it was the body of Wil- liam A. Dyer, the travelling compan- ion of Paul Neacy, now on his way to Seattle on one of the morgue ships. "There can be no wires Father Braun, "but this body is that of Mr. Dyer. Identification has been absolute. The body is being held here pending the arrival of a south- bound steamer which will take it to Seattle. Wash." The discovery of Dyer's body was made not far from the place where the State of California sank on that eventful and tragic moment. Ever since the went down a small ocean going steamer has been patrol- ling the coast in the vicinity of the uncharted rock that scut ths ship to the bottom. The telegram does not say when the body was found, but it is pre- sumed that it within 21 hours of the time the boat sank, since it is now in Juneau and presumably it was conveyed there by the ship that picked up a number of the survivors and put in to Juneau to land those who were in a serious condition from the shock and exposure. Seven ot these survivors are in a hospital at Juneau. The body of Mr. Dyer will undoubt- edly be brought to Kaukauna, Wis., where his wile and infant child are buried. Mr. Dyer's life has been one of sad misfortunes. Alter being married but two years, death entered his home and took from it his wife and child. He was at that time in the grocery business at Kaukauna and was doing well. The loss ot his wife and child led him to leave that city, and later it has been stated he mat- riculated at the Milwaukee Medical college. He was president of the Junior class at Marquette, and would have graduated from that institution next spring had his life spared. Ralph Neacy, who left Milwaukee Wednesday, to meet his brother Paul who is due in Seattle either tonight or tomorrow morning, will probably remain in tho west to meet body and accompany it home. Launches patrolling the sea in the vicinity of tho wreck this afternoon reported by wireless that with 34 fathom sounding lines they were un- able to touch bottom in the bay where tho boat went clown. Now lour bodies arc missing, there being eleven in all recovered with of Dyer. Relatives ot William Dyer in Mil- waukee today confirmed the report that his body had been found.

By the United Press Associations. Washington, D. C., Aug. locked" described the situation today between the United States and Mex- ico. Non-recognition of the Huerta ad- ministration is the obstacle. Presi- dent Wilson is standing pat in his re- fusal to recognize the de facto gov- ernment. Difficulties with Mexico were offi- cially recognized today as being more complex if not more critical. The administration is waiting fur- ther advices from John Lind while Lind is apparently waiting further orders from Washington with Presi- dent Huerta declaring that it is this government's next move. Despite unofficial reports here and in Mexico City that Huerta had re- jected the proposed mediation plan, a report given credence today in diplo- matic circles here was that Huerta regards the plan as having never been diplomatically submitted to him. He contends, it is reported, that by failure of this government to recog- nize his administration he has not ard cannot receive any suggestions from it. But he is willing to continue semi-official conferences. This latter stand of Huerta was re- garded today by the administration UF the most hopeful sign in the con- troversy. Officials here feared that Kuerta will absolutely refuse to en- tertain any further or modified pro- posals from the United States until his administration is recognized. Halts Whole Problem.
