NEW YORK, April 23 News of the
capture and reported release of H. J.

today from Washington by the Siems
Carey Railway fc Canal company. Ad -1
vices to the state department from'
the American legation in Peking dated j
April 19 and delayed in transmission
were quoted as follows:
"The time limit for money rewarded I
expired yesterday for the rescue of j
Kyle (George A. Kyle of Portland,
Ore., an American engineer abducted,
March 5). No result. Therefore gen-1
oral military pursuit is begun.
"Love, an American employed by the

and a British missionary was mur
dered in Fuklen. Train on British
railway attacked by bandits."
Siems -Carey's, informant at Wash
ington then adds this comment to the
I telegram :
All Released Except Kyle.
"Since the foregoing was received
by the state department Love and
everyone tire who has been captured
by bandits seem to nave been released
except Mr. Kyle. An official of the
Stems -Carey company said that the
reward otfered by them for the return
of Kyle was high enough to cover any

Stems-Carey company was encaged in
locating possible routes for 2,600 1

HOLLANDER ARRESTED AFTER
DECLARING HIS ENMITY FOR
AMERICA AND FOVE OF GERMANY
Taui Antonnle von Rookhuyzen, age
28, a prominent baker of Ogden, is in
the county jail under arresl, awaiting
I Investigation by the United States dc
I partment of justice because of alleged
I unpatriotic utterances he made yes
terday afternoon in the offices of the
county exemption board. According to
witnesses, von Rookhuyzen is said to
lhave declared his sympathies were
with Germany emphatically and he
would not take up arms with his Am
erican neighbors and go to war against
Rookhuyzen has been in America
since June, 1903. and has not even de
clared himself ready to take out first
naturalization papers, people who
know him declare. He claimed exemp
tion from the ilrntt because of the fact
that he is an alien. With his father,
j Paul A. von Rookhuyzen, Sr., he has
established a well paylnc bakcrjr bus
iness iu ogden and has enjoyed all the
fruits offered bj this country in the
I fourteen ears he has been here. Von
j Rookhuyzen gave his home address as
.!63j Washington avenue. Ho was
j born in Amsterdam, Holland.
Von Rookhuyzen was called into the
office of the county exemption board,
together with a dozen other aliens,
yesterday afte rnoon, to confer with the
board and see if there was not Ameri- .
.'can patriotism enough in the bunch to
make a few recruits for the army
Chairman William Lowder asked von !
i Rookhuyzen what he had to say in re- I
gard to lending America a hand dur-
ing her crisis. Von Rookhuyzen is said
; to have ask d if he had permission
I to express himself as he felt and
Chairman Lowder told him to ro
ahead and say what he wanted to. He
did and when he had finished and
Chairman Lowder showed him his
deput sheriff's badge and told him
his remarks were sufficient to place
I him in fail Von Rookhuyzen s head
'dropped and he started to weep.
No Right to Butt In.
Those who were present at the
I meeting declare von Rookhuyzen
started in by sayinc; America had no
right to "butt into this war anyway"
and that he didn t think she had the
rlcht to call on anyone to fight when
she had entered the war so unright
eously. He is said to have declared that ,
while he lived in Holland he had form
ed a strong liking for Germany and
the Germans because, of the friendly
trade relations existing between the
two countries and that his sympathies
were strongly with Germany. He is
said to have declared that he had a
relative in Germany and that he could
not tako up arms against Germany,
because he would be fighting his own
He is said to have repeated several
times that he thought America had no
business in the war and he could not
support the country which was feed
ing him because of his personal con
victions. Von Rookhuyzen spoke for some
time, witnesses say, and his remarks
were colored very vividly with pro
German sympathies and indifference
to America's situation. He wns not
Interrupted by anyone while he was
delivering himself and the three board
members, William Lowder, Alma Pet
erson and A. C. Call, permitted him to
say as much as ho liked.
Finally when he had finished. Mr
Lowder drew back his coat and show
ed von Rookhuyzen his star He then
told him he had said enough to war
rant his arrest and detention for in
vestigation and told him he was under
Weeps When Arrested.
When von Rookhuyzen realized that
he had talked himself into a rather
serious predicament, bis face flushed
and he broke down and started to
weep, saying that he had never been
submitted to the indignity of arrest
before, nor any of his family. Ho was
taken downstairs, however, despite his
blubbering protestations, and locked
in the county jail.
This morning Sheriff Peterson got
into communication by telephone with
the office in Salt Lake of the D. S. de
partment of justice and one of the
Federal officers will come to Ogden to
Investigate von Rookhuyzen'? case
and talk with those who heard him
v i his opinions.
Von Rookhuyzen came to this coun
try from Amsterdam, Holland, on the
Steamship Mayflower, and landed In
Boston in June, 1903. Since living in
Ogden he has been variously employ
i d, but has held to his baker's trade
quite regularly. He had been a coop
er at the Decker Brewing plant before
it was shut down. He also worked for
the Southern Pacific railroad as a
block signal operative and as a tele
phone lineman for the local telephone
After his arrest, he had little to
say except to protest his innocence
of anv intent to get himself into trou
The other aliens who visited the
draft board's offices yesterday after
noon were all dismissed.
