It takes him straight to Wanda (since it's as good a chance as any other that she'll be waiting for Parson), guarantees he'll only be attacking through the portal after the MK's neutrality is broken (depending upon whether you interpret Parson's action by itself as doing that), and hides him just as well as Parson from anyone else who would get suspicious at seeing him move intently towards Jetstone.
There's no real way to know that there is
a tunnel, unless he figured it out by watching Sizemore. But remember not even Janis realised what was going on until the end, and she was literally standing on top of it.
Plus, if he did
realise that Sizemore was making a tunnel to Spacerock, he didn't need to use it. One caster going to work for a side under seige is perfectly beleivable. If there was any concern about Jeftichew breaking the MK's neutrality by attacking Wanda, then all he has to do is contact Slately and offer to work for 1 Shmucker. (Really IMO Jetstone should be razing every city they have and hiring as many Casters as possible.)
Now if Jeftichew didn't know that Wanda was at Spacerock, and that was indeed who he was after, then he might
decide to follow whoever came out the Portal, but really he cant be certain that that's where Parson is going now. For all he knows, Parson is heading down a tunnel to take him directly to the Glade of the Hippymancers or something.
So I dont really see any motivation for chasing
Parson other than catching
Although depending on who he actually is, his intentions could be anything from bodyguard to assassin.
No, no. It hit him in the brain because it killed him. - Dante
