THIEF CUNNINGLY CAUGHT.
A Railroad Mutt Habited MalU im Una-
Kureka, Kas , Oct 31, About a year
ago J. W. Wcatherford was night
agent for the Missouri Pacific railroad
here. For some time letters containing
money and drafts had been missing
from the malls and no clue could bo
obtained as to whore they disappeared.
Finally Wcatherford left tho country
rather unceremoniously and from that,
lime the thieving stopped. It was
learned that the drafts stolen were
cashed In Georgia and other southern
IMdnts, and that Wcatherford had como
from the south.
Postofllce Inspector J. L. Stlco went
to Georgia and Alabama. He located
Wcnthcrford's relatives, but could find
no trace of Wcatherford. He finally
got trace of a man giving his name as
J. W. Ford. Stlco found him at last
with his family iu a log cabin in tho
Mountains of Georgia. He confessed
and told of a conspiracy to rob malls.
Wcatherford had secured a key to
the mall xmchcs from his brother-in-law,
L. Y. Denny, who was postmaster
at a town In Kentucky. With this key
Wcatherford had opened the mall sacks
while in his charge and had sent the
drafts to his relatives in the south to
be cashed. Among the drafts cashed
by this 'fence' In the south was ono for
S3 13 on its way to W. 8. Metcalf, of
Lawrence. Wcatherford and L. T.
Denny, the Kentucky postmaster, nro
In jail at Paola and another Denny Is

Turkey Will Resist Demand For
Payment of Ransom.
MISS STONE TO COME HOME.
Constantinople, Nov. 2. Tho Turk
ish government is already preparing to
resist thu anticipated demand of the
United States for payment of the ran
som necessary to becure tho release of
Miss Ellen M. Stone, the abducted
American missionary. Tho jwrte re
pudiates all responsibility for the kid
napping of Miss Stone nnd maintains
that tho United States has no claim
against Turkey, and that therefore the
latter is justified in refusing to recom
pense the United States for the money
expended In her rescue.
A high Turkish ollicinl informed a
press representative of the associated
press that the Turkish resistance of
any claims would be based upon the
contentions: First That Miss Stone,
although warned of tho dangers of the
road, persisted In traveling; second
that situ did not notify the authorities
of her intention in order to ohtiin nn
escort, which precaution even the for
eign consuls always take when travel
ing In such outlying, insecure districts
of the empire, and, third, that the
brigands who kidnapped Miss Stone
and her companions were Bulgarians,
that the coup was planned In Bulgaria
and that sanctuary was found In Bul
Solla. Mr. Dickinson, in the name
of the United States government, has
given an assurance that neither tho re
ceivers of the ransom nor Miss Stone's
guides will be prosecuted. lie asserts
that Turkey agreed a fortnight ago to
reimburse thu ransom.
Constantinople. Again it is ru
mored that Madame Tsllka, tho com
panion of Miss Stone, and her child
(born since her capture by tho bri
gands) are cjead.
Mmt Fix Itcfpnnillilllty.
Washington, Nov. 4. The United
States government so far has directed
its cfTorts soluly to the procurement of
Miss Stone's release and nil other ques
tions connected with the case, Includ
ing that of a claim for Indemnity have
been regarded as secondary and laid
asldu for future discussion. This is
almost necessarily tho case, owing tx
tho fact that in Its present lights the
state department cannot place the
responsibility for Miss Stone's capture
and detention; further evidence must
bo had on that point,
