The letter came In care ot an Omaha newspaper, in which It Is published, and covers 15 closely written pages of manuscript. The postmark is illegible, but the let ter was mailed at 8 o'clock In the morning and reached this city at 8 in the evening of the same day, indicat ing that It had not traveled a long distance. In the letter Crowe agrees to give himself up at once and stand trial for the kidnapping of Eddie Cudahy, providing he Is not locked up until a jury shall adjudge him guilty. He says he Is unable to fur nish bond In excess of $600 and de mands that ball be fixed In that sum. Chief Donahue expresses himself as satisfied that the letter came from Crowe. Donahue has known Crowe for several years, Is acquainted with his manner, handwriting and style of ' speech. The chief also received today j a letter from Crowe's uncle at Man chester, Iowa, submitting similar (terms for Crowe's surrender, which lends the police to believe that they ■re dealing with the right man. Crowe, in his letter, takes the de tectives to task, defying them to affect hia arrest, and continues: "Now, Mr. Donahue, let me tell you nil I ask is justice, a fair trial by 12 (men, citizens of Douglass county, Ne | braska. Not by Herod or any of his kind. There gold is gold, and with that power they rule tbe world. "Donahue, all I ask la a fair deal. Grant my request and I will give my self up. "Mr. Cudahy has known me for 13 years. He now believes me guilty, nevertheless I think he will grant me a fair trial, as all he wants Is the public to know the truth." Crowe says he has known Governor Savage ever since he was a barefoot ed boy on the farm in Iowa, expresses regret that he has fallen into til repute and then lays down the conditions of his surrender ns follows: "Now, Mr. Donahue, I will give my self up to you If you will promise me upon your word of honor that I will not be locked up until the jury says guilty. If the jury says that, I will take my punishment like a man, with out a murmur. "I can give a bond for $500 and that is all. If the court will not accept that, I will remain a fugitive from In justice. "Your answer to this must bear the signatures of Edward Cudahy, Gov ernor Savage. Sheriff John Power, At torney Shields. Chief Donahue and the judge that fixes the bond. "Mr. Donahue, I want you to under stand that I am not afraid of the com bined wealth of all the Cudahvs on earth, and the services of all the de tectives they can hire. Their efforts to pinch me will bite the dust, for I am ready to die in the mix. I will not be kangarooed. "Chief, I ask but I do not expect to get justice. There is some one who wants to put me away and I know the god of gold." Crowe says that he bas been in South Africa, fighting with the Boers, recites reminiscences relative to the contests. He decides that Chief Dona hue's reply be made through a local paper, and says if his offer is not ac cepted he will return to South Africa again, from where he will probably never return again. Chief Donahue said tonight that he would request the city and Mr. Cudahy to withdraw the rewards for Crowe, with the provision that Crowe sur renders himself. He said that If Crowe gave himself up he will be giv en all the privileges the law allows. Edward Cudahy said recently: "I am opposed to entering into any special negotiations of the arrest of Crowe. It is only a matter of time when he will be apprehended. How ever. I will withdraw the reward of fered for his arrest and aonvictlon."
