Siieual Committee May Visit St. Louis to Witness Closing of Subscription. l.EPLELIt hVF.ClAU. Washington, Dec. 2L Representatives Joy and. Bartholdt of St. Louis to-day received from Secretary James Cox nnd others of the World's Fair management telegrams giving cheering reports of tho work dono in filling up subscription lists. Secretary Co re quested all the congressional documents bearing upon tho St, Louis exposition. Reprcsentatli o Bartholdt to-day sent copies of tho bill now pending In the Hou--. tho report of tho special committee and the sundry dill bill of June C, carrying a pledge of tS,OUD,OM for Goicrnnient aid of the enterprise. To-day Sir. Bartholdt said ho would wlro President W. 11. Thompson find former Governor Francii a suggestion that It might bo well to Invito members of the speci-il committee In charge of the bill to go to St. Louis and witness tho closing work, Decem ber 2L, Mr. Bartholdt believes that this would be a good opportunlt) for tho com mittee to look the situation over persimlly. It Is rot certain that Chalrni in Tawnev could go. but tho other menltn i f the committee probably could r.rranro their n ragements bo as to be In St. Louii Tho list day of tho month. Several of tho friends' of the Fair In Congress havo suggested that tho simplest and quickest method of getting llnal kfcis latlon enacted v ould be bv a brief pur 1 graph In the -ondrv civil bill, referring to the terms of tho pledgo In tho act of June . and making a direct appropriation of , COO.000 In pur&uanco of It. The admlni-Mratiin till would be pussed separately, and need lot embody the main appropriation This suggestion Is made a9 one means of avoid ing any need for long debate of the spe cial MIL This measure must come up by peclal arrangement, and the friends of ether pressing Interests probably will de mand that no extended time be alloued for debate of any special bill. That would less en chances for action on many other bills. Representative Bartholdt betimes that ore entire IcgUlathe day can be had In tho House for the World's Fair measure. This would bo considered a liberal allotmnit T time. In view of the short session. The HOUSe thus far thlq umtpp li m n i!a i. cfd-breaklng progress.

One thing that Is puzzling tho ikUco at this time is bow they can punish the kid-. n ipers should they l captured, there; I e inc no 1 iw t j cover the case. There U an offence known as "kidnaping"' In the criminal statutes of Nebraska, which carries with it a penitentiary sentence, on conviction, ranging from two to evei )ears, but it only applies to kidnapping with the Intention of carrjing the victim i outside of the State. Manifestl) it woaid b- Impo-sible to prov that the abductors of voung Cudahy carried hlm outside of the State, because, o far as Is known, thev mere!) took him to a point southwest of South Omaha, ard if they had. an) intention of carr) Ing him out of thu Stato they did nothing to furnish tangibla evidence of it. Another penltentlarv offense defined br the Nebraska criminal code is that of "chiM stealing," but thb. section, too. Feems to have 10 application to the present Instance, because- It rcfero only to stealing children under 10 )cars of age, while CuJahy is al ready 13 The suggestion has been made that th kidnapers might be held on the charge of lew lng blackmail, inasmuch as they used their posseslon of )ounr Cudahy as a, means of extorting mone) from his father, but nothing in the Nebraska statutes covers this phae of it. So far as can ! ascertained by tho police In tho examination of the law. the only charge which can be succs-fully brought against the perpetrators of this outrage li that of fal-e imprisonment, which is not a. crime, but merelv a misdemeanor, subject to a tine and jail sentence onlv. From this It will be seen that the prob lem of what to do with the kidnareis. should they be captured. Is almot as diffi cult as the problem of fl-vlng the identity ot the men. llc-llrve It lu Train Robbers. r.niTHLic? i-rnci vl. ejhlcngo, Dcc. :i Michael Cudahy. after having a long talk with his brother.
