The first-named l» a big firm with
Important connections. It is feared
a number of smaller Jobbers will
be affected.
While the difficulties of the firms
closely connected with the London
and Globe division were largely
discounted, the repeated fall of the
hammer this morning caused a
great sensation. It Is feared the
full list of failures Is not yet
known.
Almost the whole Interest, on the
stock exchange today centered in
the West Australian market, the
condition of which sympathetically
affected the others. All the Sharon
of the and Globe group
toppled, especially Lake Views and
Le Hoi, No. 2. The shares of th->
latter were yesterday quoted at 23,
but today they are unsalable a f 4.
The London and Globe Is also

lumbian market. The situation Is
not yet cleared up, as the rumors of arrangements to assist the Lon
don and Globe are not credited in w.»ll Informed circles. There is the great
est indignation against Mr. Whltaker Wright, who Is the fountainhead of the
conoerf, and others of the London and Globe group. There has been some
what of a recovery in Lake Views since last evening.
The chairman of the London and Globe Finance Corporation, Umited, la
tho Marquis of DufTerln ami Ava, the former governor general of Canada,
and British ambassador at Paris*. The failure of th»> concern of which he Is
the head adds one more »orr< w to the cilia! ng chapter of his life, for he Is
today preparing to start for South Africa, in company with I*ady DuflTerln.
In consenuence of the serious condition of his sick son, L#ord Frederick
Temple Blackwood, lieutenant In the Ninth Lancers, who was wounded Mon
day. at Glenfonteln. It Is scarcely a year ago since Lord Dufferiit lost his
eldest son, the Karl of Ava, who died at Ladysmlth. He Is now encom
passed by family grief, to which are added these serious financial troubles.
Lord Dufferln's fellow directors are Whltaker Wright, who Is well
known In connection with many companies; Lieut. Gen. the lion. Somerset
<lough Calthorpe, who has been colonel in chief of the Fifth Drag >on
Guards since 1892. and Lord Pelham (*linton. master of the queen's house
hold, and a son of the former Duke of Newcastle. Lord Dufferin holds 5.U00
shares of the London and Globe and 30,000 British-Americas.
The failure* today involve member# of the stock exchange,
and are e.jualty divided anionic Jobbers and brokers. Jt is generally regard
ed In tile mining market as being the blackest day since the Baring smash,
which was disastrous to all departments. Today's orisi*. however, did not
extend to the other markets, lb >ugh a number of them closed depressed.
Americans wore Incidentally affected, owing to some of the firms which
failed being interested In American securities.
The I/ondon and Olobe Is said to be largely interested in the Baker Street-
Waterloo electric railroad, and the trouble is partially attributed to the money
it has tied up tn that road.

OMAHA, Dec. 29. E. A. Cudahy, the
millionaire packer, has received a second
communication from the men who kid
naped his Hon. This time, as formerly,
the letter contains a threat, and says in
substance that unless he withdraws his
offer of S26.«AW reward for the arrest and
conviction of each of the three bandits,
they will kidnap another of his children.
The letter refers to the failure of the
police to pet anything like a tangible
clue as to the identity of the kidnaper*,
scoffs at the idea of Pat Crowe being one
of them, and mentions the ease with
which the "first job was pulled off." and
concludes by saying that if Mr. Cudahy
is as wise as he showed himself in the
first Instance, he will comply with the
request, and withdraw the reward at
once.
This letter is written with pen and ink.
on the same kind of yellow paper as the
first and evidently by the same person.
It was found by a servant of the Cudahy
household, early on the morning of
Thursday, December 27. Someone ealle<l
up the house by telephone, and asked If
Mr. Cudahy was in. The servant an
swered that he was not.
"Well," came the voice over the tele
phone, "you can go out in the front yard
and you'll find a letter there, near the
gate. It's addressed to Mr. Cudahy. See
that it is delivered to him personally, and
to no one else."
The servant went out at once and
found a letter. It was in a plain wihite
envelope and was addressed:
• •
j "Mr. E. A. CndHhy. Fenlor. P»r-
J son a I and Private.''
Mr. Cudahy, who w.js then nt hi* pn< k-
In* house In South Omaha, was nummon
eii homo at once. No one wan permitted
to net! the Icuer at Aral, except Mr. and
Mr*. Cudahy.
Mr Ctidahy's Intention at the time una
to keep It* contents to himself, as the
bandits had requested, but later he
thought better of it, as he believe* that
In the hands of the police it would prove
a valuable clue, so thla afternoon he took
Chief Donahue Into hi* confidence. They
held a Consultation at the chief s ofllce.
Which lasted nearly three hours. The
chief was seen afterward, but refused to
dlactone the nature of the subject dl»-
cussed*
Mr. Cudahy says he ha* not withdrawn
th# reward nor will he do so. The rrward
offered stands aa originally announced.

Of DEFECTIVE GENERALSHIP.
Sensational Attack Hade by British General (olville Up

the Mistakes Made hy lords
Roberts aod Kitchener.
LONDON. Dec. SJ.—MaJ. Oen sir Henry Colvllle, whose resignation has
been demanded by the war office, but who refuse.! to resign. and rams
to Kngland frem Gibraltar, arriving nt Plymouth today, to demand a
trial ' y court-martial to establish the responsibility for the yeomanry
disaster at IJndlev last May. has made a counter strike at the war office In
a three-thousand Word statement which he has given to the press Me says
he has come home to demand a free
Inquiry, and does, not Intend lob'
made a scapegoat for sake of the
staff lie avers that the U:ndlev
disaster could never have happened
had he been Informed of Kob
en's' intention. The primary cause
of the surrender, he says, was the
insufficient information Riven by
the headquarters staff to Col
Spagge and himself, and he de
clines to accept the blame. He lays
out the facts and blames others.
Geo. i Colvllle and his influential
friends. In and out of the army, are
thus beginning a campaign against
the new secretary of state for war,
William St. John Drodertck, Lord
Roberts and Kitchener. It Is
expected to be fought out with some
ferocity In parliament.
rciu II rnn«KU After he returned from South Af
liCN. Miuicntu, r)(>a (jen. Colvllle nay* he fully nc-
Who It cha'ged with detective <ener«Hhlp qualnted the war office with tM<>
Kv l'..n rnlvi If fact#. After some llmi he was In
oy uen. UOIVI if. formed by <le» Sir lively n Wood.
the adjutant general, that I-ord r.»nJiln*nr, then secretary of state for war,
had directed him to say that <len. I,ord Wolseley, the commander-in-chief,
approved of Oen. Colvllle'* resuming hi* Gibraltar command. He learned
unofficially t{>at an army board of Ave of the highest officer* of the war
office had considered hla statement*, and Hoberts' dispatch on the
subject. His reappointment was the result of the Inquiry. T<r hi* Intense
surprise. Aljt. Oen. Wood, on December 21, notified him that William St.
John Brodertck, the newly-appointed secretary of state for war. held him
responsible for the los* of the yeomanry, and ordered hint to quit his com
mand Immediately and hand over his resignation.
(Jen Oolvllle going Into ofTlclal details, says he wan ordered to concen
trate his division at Hellbron on May ». »™l names the disposition of
the other divisions, which extended across the Orange Kree State. ll» «*-
slimed that Lard Roberts Intended to advance, sweeping all before him. Ill*
orders wi re absolute, and he harl to carry them out Hence he could not go
to the relief of the MO yeomanry without risking success of grand headquar
ters He said he considered It his duty to go on, even If he were sure It
would entail the lons of the yeomanry. Reside, he had only food enough for
two days. He pushed on. and the yeomanry surrendered. I»rd Roberts broke
op Gen. Colvllle's division and explained his dissatisfaction.
"On my pointing out that I had obeyed his orders to the letter," declared
Oen Colvllle. "lie said his orih-rs were only Intended as a guide."
(Jen. Colvllle alludes to some of the yeomanry being millionaires, and
quotes txird Roberta as saying II was Jits duty to aecrlflee 1>I« force for the
veomanry.
"It will be rememh»r*d." Hen OrtvlUc say*, that the Mtrps dellt* num
bered CtOO. and my force nearly el«ht times that ntimher."
Oen. OolvHle recites two examples of what he considers Irfird Kitcheners
defective work ...
l4>rd Roberts has left Gibraltar for 1-ondon. and will arrive there at
about the same time as Gen. Colvlll*. who has recently I>een ordered from his
