Cleveland, March 24.Throughout
the development of the plans of the
kidnappers of Willie Whitla, who was
returned to his father in this city on
payment of $10,000 ransom, show
that they operated with the utmost
skill. Each time they have appeared
in any public place, the trail ends
where they wanted it to end.^
At the East End candy store where
the money was paid the tracks of the
man who got it end at the door. At
Payne avenue and East Thirtieth
street, where the boy was taken to
board the car, there is no trace of the
man who accompanied him beyond
the vacant lot where he stood and
watched the boy take the street car.
Whether they will ever be captured
It may be a day or two before Billy
Whitla is able to tell the whole story

He scarcely knew his father when the

He did remember that a woman
gave him "medicine," evidently a
strong narcotic, for many of the
child's recollections are hazy in the
extreme. His heavy eyes and unac

that he was in a stupor much of the
time that he was In the eustody of
the child stealers.
Even when he came to the Hollen

of those two places. He knew he
had been in Warren and in Newcastle.
He thought he had been In the latter
place three days.
He had been in bed much of the

LEFT IN LITTLE CANDY STORE
Ransom of $10,000 Lay Exposed on
Cleveland, March 24.James P.
Whitla and his son "Billy" left here
for the family home in Sharon, Pa.,
and were escorted to the railroad sta
tion by a cheering crowd of people.
The kidnapped youngster was clasped
in the arms of his father from the
moment they left the Hollenden hotel
until they reached- the train. Mr.
Whitla was not inclined to discuss the
matter of ransom or the plans of the
family in dealing with the kidnappers.
"I am so glad to have the boy in
my arms," said the father, half smil
ing and half crying, "that I have given
no thought to the kidnappers. That
will be up to the police and as I live
and breathe I am not worrying over
The $10,000 ransom of Billy Whitla
was paid to his kidnappers in a little
candy store at East Fifty-third street
and Standard.: avenue. The money
was received by an ordinarily dressed
workingman, who Save his name as

nonchalantly and left

porarily in charge of the store for her
mother, Mrs. Margaret TJhle, forgot to
notice which way the man went and
at the door of the little grocery is the
last trace the police have of him.
Called Twice for Package.
The Hayes man stepped into the
store at noon and asked if a package
had been left there for him. Mrs.
Hendrickson, without noting his ap
pearance, told him there had not been.
An hour later a prosperous looking
man, who said his name was Will
iams, came in with a small package
in his pocket.
"He said he wanted to leave it for
a man named Hayes." said Mrs. Hen
drickson. "He asked if Hayes, had
been here and I said he had. Will
lams left the package and not two
minutes later Hayes. came in and
asked 'is my package here?'
"I told him that it was and he
smiled. Without another word he
took it from where it lay exposed on
top of the cigar ease and went away."
A few hours, later the kidnapped
boy was placed on a street car and
sent to the Hollenden hotel, where his
father was awaiting the fulfillment of
the kidnappers' promise to release the
boy and send him to the hotel.

RETURN TO WORK
Vote in Favor of Such Action
Paris, March 24.At a mass meet
ing of 6,000 of the striking govern
ment telegraph and postoffice em
ployes it was voted by an overwhelm
ing majority to resume work. Only
about 200 of the men voted to con
tinue the strike.
The strike committee telegraphed
broadcast to its adherents in the prov
inces the decision of the striking em
ployes to return to work. At 2 o'clock
in the afternoon, after a parade
through the streets, the strikers in
Paris returned to their posts. Later
the military were withdrawn.
Owing to the wide disorganization
caused by the strike it w-ill probably
be a week before the telegraph and
postal services are completely normal.
