CUDAHY PAID HEAVY
HANSOM FOR HIS BOY
Kidnapers Get $25,000 For
His Son’s Return.
SENT HOME LAST NIGHT
Father Followed Directions Given
Him in a Letter and Recovers His
Son—Omaha Police Are at Work ou
the Case—No Clue to Abductors.
Omaha, Dec. 20. Chief of Police
Donhue this morning gave out the fol
lowing statement:
“You may rest assured of this much,
the Cudahy boy was kidnaped and he
was taken from the city. Further than
that I can say but very little now, but I
expect Mr. Cudahy to call at my office
and after a talk with him I expect to be
able to make a statement.”
Being further pressed as to details
about the return of the boy and the
terms made by E. Cudahy, Sr., for the
return of the boy if any were offered,
the chief said:
“We knew last night that the boy
was kidnaped all right and taken from
the city. He was returned home about
1:30 o’clock this morning.’
It is stated that Cudahy paid $25,000
ransom demanded by the abuctors of
his son, and it was by so doing that the
young man was returned home.
Yesterday about noon and several
hours after a letter had been left in the
front yard at the Cudahy residence, an
other missive was delivered to Mr.
Cudahy at his residence.
It came through the mails and con
tained a proposition to return the boy
safe and unharmed, provided the sum
of $25,000 was paid that night. In the
letter were lull directions as to where
the money was to be left and the assur
ance was given that the missing bo’y
would be allowed to return within a few
hours alter rhe time when the cash was
paid. A consultation was held and the
plans were discussed for capturing the
bandits when they should make their
appearance at the rendezvous that had
been designated, but one after another
they were dropped as being impractica
ble.
Father Pays the Ransom.
Finally, impelled by the strain under
which the entire household was labor
ing, Mr. Cudahy decided to comply
with the terms offered and ransom his
son.
The money was secured by a trusted
messenger, who was sworn to secrecy,
and was brought to the Cudahy resi
dence. After dinner Mr. Cudahy had
one of his horses harnessed to a light
buggy and taking the money with him
left for the designated place at which it
had been stipulated the money was to
be left. In the buggy he carried a red
lantern and was alone. Leaving the
house he drove 5 miles west of town un
til he came to a white lantern that was
hanging on a short stick by the side of
the road. This was the place where he
was to leave the boy’s ransom, and
alighting from his buggy he deposited
the sack close by the stick bearing the
white light. Then, without seeing any
one, he returned to his home.
In the meantime the abductors of the
boy bad seen the red light coming up
the road and as soon as the buggy had
disappeared in the direction from which
it had come, they took the money and
prepared to keep faith with the boy’s
father. The lad was bundled into a
hack and set down close by his father’s
Aouse about 1 o’clock this morning.
Having been blindfold all the time, the
boy was unable to say where he had
been, but as nearly as he could estimate
by the few observations he was able to
make he thought he bad been taken
about 5 miles south of South Omaha.
There is absolutely no clue to the
identity of the abductors, although the
police have been working incessantly on
the matter ever since it was first re
ported to them. Whether the boy will
be able to furnish clues that will lead to
the capture of the outlaws who held him
prisoner for over 24 hours remains to be
seen later on.

London, Dec. 20. —So many expectant
American heirs to fortunes reported to
be held in the English court of chancery
are being fooled by unscrupulous agents
that the American embassy made a
formal request to the court for a state
ment of unclaimed property in which
the Americans might be interested.
The court sent to Mr. Choate an official
statement showing the absurdity of
American expectations. The court holds
a total of $200,000,000 worth of prop
erty, of which $180,000,000 are desig
nated trusts for wards in chancery and
known heirs of estates in process of ad
judication, leaving a balance of $20,-
000,000 open for claim. But a large
part of the latter is already claimed,
and is only awaiting a decision of the
court for settlement. Most of these un
claimed estates are very small,
being more than $500,000. A coterie of
claim agents in Loudon has been living
off the contributions of American heirs
for many years.
SITUATION GROWS WORSE
Fears Are Entertained of Another
Anti-Foreign Outbreak.
Peking, Dec. 19. The situation
throughout the provinces is rapidly
growing worse, causing grave anxiety.
Unless a definite system of government
is speedily installed a recrudescence of
the anti-foreign outbreaks is confidently
predicted.
The pressure of winter begins to be
felt by the people, who are als suffering
on account of the blackmail levied by
the native employes of the allies, for
which the foreigners are blamed. A
number of desperadoes, imprisoned at
San-Chow-Fu by General Mei, whom
the Germans released, are now hurry- j
ing to the Chi-Li-Shang-Tung border
burning houses, murdering and piilag*
ing.
