liONDOX, August 22.—Kid McCoy
‘Norman Uelbyl, the American boxer,
was discharged from custody by the
magistrate of the extradition court at
Mow street today He was arrested
July 2* on a prorlslonal extradition
warrant charging him with larcvpy, al
leged to have been committed at Os.
tend. The proceedings were tak»n at
the InstiE.it 1 ;j of the Belgian -ga
McCoy had appeared before the'
magistrate on several previous occa
sions on the same charge and on An- '
gust 2 was relens, d on hail while
awaiting the arrival of the documents
connected with the case from Belgium
McCoy's attorney. In addressing the
magistrate today, said the depositions
had arrived from Belgium and after
carefully studying them he considered
there was absolutely no rase against
McCoy it was most extraordinary, he
added that McCoy should have been
arrested on the unsworn statement of
an Intoxicated woman, who. when she
became sober denied her own state
ment The reason McCoy found him
self in that position was that he hap
pened to travel to Ostend and stay in
the hotel where the theft was com
The magistrate said he had read all
the papers nnd had come to the con
clusion that there was not sufficient
evidence to Justify extradition and he
therefore dp missed the case.
