men and a woman were arrested to
night in connection with the Whitla
kidnapping case. They had a satchel,
which contained $9,845.50, in cur
Inspector Rowe professes to believe
that he has captured the kidnappers
of Willie Whitl:a. The men and wo
man in custody thus far have de
dlined to explain the possession of
such a large sum of money, or where
they came from, or their destination.
Cleveland, Ohio, March 23.-The
simple, childish habit of Willie Whit
la of spelling out the names of street
car lines may prove helpful to the
polide of Cleveland in finding the
house, in, which the boy was
held a captive during his enforced
absence from home.
While the boy was seated at a ta
ble today at his home in Sharon, he
began spelling street nomeuclature.
Among other was the name of a street
car line in Cleveland. Detective
Ward, who was near the lad, asked
im what he meant by spelling the
word which he had seen displayed
on the top of the car. "Why, that's
the name of the street car which pass
ed the hospital, where 'Mr. Jones'
kept me," answered the boy.
Detective Ward at once communi
eated the clew to the police in Clere
land. Private detectives were sent
here from Sharon and Pittsburg to
go over the car line and look for the
house described by Willie in his prat
Detectives refuse to designate the
ear line on which the house is believ
ed to be located. It is admitted, how
ever, that the house is not far dis
tant from the corner, at which Wil
lie was placed on the car by one of
the-kidnappers Monday night.
The police have a description of
the house. From the lips of the kid
napped boy have fallen from time to
time a few words about the place.
The first clew to the appearance of
the hnse and yard surrounding it
was given in a letter written by Wil
lie to his father Saturday. The boy
said, the 'house was encompassed by
a number of large trees.
SNo arrests were made by the Shar-1
on police today. Whil~e the boy, in
charge of his father, was the centre
of-a triumphant home comning) the of
ficials were at work on the slender
eldws given them by the boy, who
had been safely returned to his fath
er here last night after the payment
*of the $10,000 ransom.
' Tlie departure of Attorney Whitla
and his son for their home in .Sharon
was the occasion for a demonstration.
Thousands of persons gathered about

them -to th'e railroad depot.
*The officials are working indlepeiid

he wil:l take no part in it. It is
thought by thiose making the search
that the house in which the boy was
held is located near East 30th street,
which is only one mile from the city's
centre. Druggist Unger. in whose
store Attcyney Whitla obtained a
letter givng final instructions for the
payment of the ransom, and Mrs. B.
A. Hendricks, who was in charge of
the little candy store, where the mon

by the officiais, but little of value was
learned. The officials believe Mrs.
Hendrieks -was an innocent agent of
the kidnappers, and that the abduc

MR. GALLOWAY'S POSITION.
A Clear Statement Regarding Sena
tor Smith's Secretary and Or
The State (editorial).
The following editorial paragraph
from the Orangeburg Times and De
mocrat is reproduced in the Colum
bia Evening Record:
"Senator E. D. Smith has offend
ed organized labor in this State by
employing Mr. C. M. Galloway as his
private secretary. They charge that
Mr. Galloway. who had given up the
telegrapher's key for a more advan
tageous and lucratice position, went
back to the key to help break the
telegraphers' strike in Columbia two
years ago. Senator Smith is requested
to reseind the appointment of Mr.
While we know that immediately
after Mr. Galloway's appointment, a
labor agitator, at present of Colum
bia, -erstwhile of Buffalo. N. Y., or
West Virginia, or both, had protested
to Senator Smith, and that the at
tempt was being made to stir up local
labor circles, the matter did not seem
to warrant notice by the State. Up to
this time it appeared to be nothing
more unworthy than the effort of the
professional agitator to impress the
hard-working men with the idea that
he was earning his wage. But the
publication of editorial comment in
another city indicates a. purpose to
inqure the reputation of Mr. C. M.
Galloway before the public of this
State by the promulgation of damag
ing inferences. Therefore, in justice
to him and to the State, we must re
call the record of the matter and put
the labor-union men that regard hon
or and gratitude and obligation to
duty, in position to escape from the
false attitude in which they are be
Like millions of - the rest of us in
the South, C. M. Galloway was a very
poo-r boy. He. began to work when
ten years old. In all his life he had
but a few months of instruction in
the rudiments. In the cities we see,
with a pang of pity, little telegraph
messenger boys taking long tramps on
dairk and trainy nights. Galloway
was one of those. But he was ambi
tious. He got familiar with the sound
signs of t.he old Morse code. Then he.
learnt to telegraph, serving long ap
prenticeship in railroad offices. The
step was into a tononerceal oui<e,

State to ''take'' the Associated

a time. In 'those years when tele

help, Galloway did other work-a lot
Whern a vacancy oeeurred in the
news editorship of the State Gallo
wa had faith in himself. He was
given the place-and he made good.
While news editor and working at
the duties of that office from nine to
eleven hours at night, ne took up the
study of law, and graduated in law
at the University of South Carolina.
Mr. Galloway never affiliated with
any labor organization. He declined
to join the telegraphers' union, and
after becoming news editor of the
State refused the presidency of the
local t.elegra.phers' union, a.lso declin
ing honorary membership.
About two years ago railroad tele
raphers in the west wvent on strike.
The State give them sympathy, but
deplored the precipitate strike of
Southern telegraphers who were to
tlly unprepared to stand a siege.
Most of the commercial and railroad
tegraphers went out in a movement
for which there had been no prepara
tion. The strike officials conceived
the idea of forcing public opinion to
fre the telegraph companies to
vild by cutting off news from the
publie. To that end most of the As
sociatedi Press telegraphers, hiigh
pried men. were got to strike. The
State 's regular telegrapher, who
would not have struck, was on vaca
tion; his substitute went out. Mr.
Galloway, bound to the State and its
interests by affection, by the senti
ment of loyalty, by the ties of grati
tude, and by the honor of manhood,
took up the work where the alien left
off, just as lie r;ould have done had
the telegrapher got drunk or. dropped
At that time. a 0- Ie'n was pah
ised that Mr. Gahllz; '. <- an h-I n
rarv member of the telegraphe1 's
uia had deserted his fellows.
He immediately published a cald
denying having ever a-(cspt?.l hono!
: or a: ' e :t :'.., or that
he had even been notified of such elee
tion. And there is no record or evi
dence to dispute him. But ten thou
sand accepted honorary memberships
can not wipe out a man's obligation
to do his duty. Mr. Taft is an hon
orary steam shoveler; is it his duty
on that account, to take sides with
the steam shovelers on the Panama
canal work in whatever demands they
may make? The idea is preposterous.
It is gross impertinence to demand
that Senator Smith rescind the ap
pointment of his private secretary,
and it is as futile as it is insolent.
But that is not the question which
should most concern the labor men
who have honest regard for their re
sponsibilities ;.nd duties to society.
Such men wisir a square deal and they
wish to give a square deal. They
wish the sympathy of public opinion,
and they wish to earn that sympa,thy
by being in the right. Such men must
realize that the name of honest labor
is being prostituted by such baseless
and contemptible assaults as that
