Arrested at Butte, Montana, Pat Crowe
Tells Strange Story—Declares that
Eddie Cudahy Suggested the Kid
naping and Shared in Ransom
Butte, Mont. —Pat Crowe, wlio was
arrested here Tuesday, was positively
identified by a man whose name is
withheld by the police, hut who is said
*o have worked with Crowe in the
stock yards in South Omaha.
The man under arrest persists that
lie is Crowe and says he wants to go
hack to Nebraska and clear himself,
believing that there is no law under
which he can he prosecuted.
To-day, for the first time, the world
is given the facts of the kidnaping of
Eddie Cudahy, in a signed statement
by the famous outlaw. Pat Crowe, who
was arrested last night by Detective
M. P. Mclnerney and Captain of Po
lice William McGrath.
Following is Crowe’s own story:
“For the first time I will tell the
itory of the so-called kidnaping of Cud
ahy. Pages and pages have filled the
newspapers of the country for the past
five years, hut not one of them ever
guessed the truth.
“In the month of September, I think
the 6tli, Eddie Cudahy met me at the
corner of Twentieth and Farnham and
told me he had a scheme by which each
of us could make money from Ills old
man. He said: ‘Pat. you can make
$25,000 without turning a hair.’ He
was then a lad of sixteen years, and I
thought the suggestion was so absurd
that I took it as mere ramblings of a
kid. Well, he finally went into the
plan so carefully anil with such evi
dence of preparation I decided to see
the thing through, or at least to see
how far the hoy would go with it.
“We met several times later and
agreed that Eddie was to disappear
1 and I was to write the old man asking
for $50,000 for a ransom. This we de
cided to cut down to $25,000. I took
a partner in on the deal. Later I quit
him and took another partner instead.
As I will tell you later, young Cudahy
got $6,000 of the $25,000 the elder Cud
ahy left for ransom the night Eddie
Cudahy was released. 1 took that $25,-
000 from where it was deposited to the
house where Eddie Cudahy and my
partner were waiting for me.
“We split the money immediately.
. We gave Eddie Cudahy $6,000 in
money, and then my partner and I
split the rest. After that we took
young Cudahy to within a block of the
Cudahy home. I guess young Cudahy
had that $6,000 with him then. I do
not know what he did with it. 1 hid
mine, and all of mine is gone now.’’
Speaking of other parts of his ca
reer, Crowe said:
“How 1 happened to become a crim
inal and of my life since the kidnap
ing is altogether another story. 1 want
to say, however, at the time of the kid
naping Chief Donahue was accused of
being in it. He was perfectly innocent,
knew nothing about it,.and is an hon
est man.
■ “Another thing is that I was not the
only man to whom Eddie Cudahy
broached the proposition of kidnaping
him in erder to bleed the old man. He
first suggested it to a man named Rog
ers, anil that man turned the proposi
| tion down.”
“A year after the kidnaping I re
turned to Omaha, having been in Eng
land and South Africa, for the purpose
of giving myself up,” he said. “You
may remember the time, anil of read
ing a letter that I wrote an Omaha pa
per. Then when the time came 1
found the case had been taken out oi
the hands of the police and Pinkertons
and other private detectives were
working on it. Then I got frightened.
I was afraid of prison. I’ll been in the
penitentiary before, so I left Omaha
1 without giving myself up or without
being caught.
, “I came up here from Omaha two
weeks ago to see by brother, Andrew
Crowe, who you probably know here. I
found he had left town, and going first
to Big Timber, Wyoming, and then
hack home. I have been staying
around here. I met Detective McGar
vey and told him who I was anil asked
him if he wanted me, then yesterday 1
got to drinking and talking and my ar
rest followed.”
Pat Crowe’s Story Denied.
Omaha.—Eilward A. Cudahy to-day
gave out a signed statement touching
the confession said to have been made
by Pat Crowe, in which he says:
“As to the alleged statement of*
Crowe that my son was a party to the
plot, it is r,o absurd, particularly in the
light of his previous statements, that
I can hardly believe that lie made it.
It certainly is untrue.
“For several years I have made no
effort toward securing the arrest of
Crowe, although having had two letters
sent to me signed by him, admitting
that he alone was guilty of the kidnap
ing and begging clemency, stating that
he wanted to start life anew.
“in one of these letters he says:
“ ’I am guilty of the Cudahy affair.
I am to blame for the whole crime. Af
ter it was over I regretted my act and
offered to return $21,000 to Mr. Cudahy,
but he refused to take it. and then I
went to South Africa, where I joined
the rebel army and was badly
wounded, being shot twice. Then I re
turned to America and repeatedly
tried to make my peace with the mar
I wronged.’ ”
Mr. Qudahy adds:
“I have felt duty bound to refrain
from agreeing not to prosecute him, be
lieving that this was a matter entirely
within the province of the stnte author
