THOUGHT IT KIDNAPING:
PARTIES ARE RELEASED
At the Hock Island railroad station,
in Davenport, last evening about 7
O'clock Capt. Connolly and Detective
Atkinson, of the police force there,
arrested Jesse Coe and Byron Coe,
ooth of tieneseo. 111., on information
that they were wanted at that place
for kidnaping the 4-year-old son of
Jesse toe. The boy was in their pos
session at the time and the three
were taken to the Davenport police
headquarters, where they were held,
awaiting the arrival of an officer from
Rock Island. After Byron Coe. who
is the father of Jesse Cte and tlA?
grandfather of the boy, had commu
nicated with a lawyer in Geneseo, he
and his son consented to come across
The! apprehension of the two Coes
was due to the efforts of a brother
of the wife of Jesse Coe. According
to the story told to the police, Jesse
Coe and his wife have been separated
for some time and she has had the
little boy in her care. Yesterday
morning, according to this account of
the matter, Jesse Coe and his father
secured the boy and boarded a west
bound tram on the llock Island. They
were quick in their actions, but they
were not quick enough to prevent the
brother of the woman from boarding
the same truin for the purpose of get
ting them arrested at the first oppor
His first attempt was at Moline. As
soon as the train stopped there he
secured an officer and had him go
through the train. To his astonish
ment nothing w a, s to be seen of the
two men and the little bov, who were
not found by the authorities at Mo
line. Jesse Cue's brother-in-law came
on to Rock Island and tried to locate
the two men and the boy here, but he
soon became convinced they had se
cured a hack at Moline and had gone
to Davenport. Later he heard of
someone having seen the missing ones
oiiig across the bridge. About sup
per time Chief Darnell, of the police
department here, telephoned Capt,
Connolly, at Dfiypnport, giving him a
description of the men and boy; The
captain went at once to the railroad
station in company with Detective At
kinson and found the trio as they
were going to buy tickets.
When arrested the Coes made the
claim that they were about to go
back to Geneseo, having merely come
to Davenport for the day, taking the
boy along with them. It chanced
that color was given to this claim by
the fact that the evening train for
the east was a couple of hours late.
going out of the local depot at about
S instead of a few minutes before 6
o'clock, in accordance with the sched
ule. So the Coes, having learned the
train would be late in arriving and
departing, may have gone to the sta
tion for the purpose of going east
But it happens that the westbound
train was due at 7:10, a few minutes
ifter they reached the station, and
this fact led the officers to suspect
that the Coes and the boy were in
reality about to go west, instead of
going bnck into Illinois, where serv
ice could be had on them under war
rants sworn out at (Jeneseo.
After reaching this city in charge
of Constable (ioldberg a telephone
message was received by State's At
torney Weld from Emory (.raves,
state's attorney of Henry county,
who offered to be personally respon
sible for the nppearnnce of the par
ties when wanted, and they were re
leased without being brought into
court at all. It was upon the advice
of Mr. Graves that they consented to
come to this side of the river. ,
