The Mer Rouge kidnapping case, which for four months has baffled all mt the legal machinery of the state of ' Louisiana, originated, it is said, as a result of a feud between rival factions of Morehouse parish. Although tiie K. K. K. organization of Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi baa been charged in some quarters with bebtg involved in the mysterious disap pearance of Major Watt Daniels and Thomas Fletcher Richards, citUen of Mer Rouge, and many citizens of northeast Louisiana believe that the rase goes much deeper than alleged Ka Klux Klan animosity and is more or less racial, rivalling hi many respects the celebrated feuds of the Cumber land mountains of Kentucky, Tennes see and Virginia. Although the feudal fight was said to liave been brewing for a quarter of a century, involving some of the leading families of Morehoue parish, a climux was reached on Aug. 24, wken J. L. Daniels, 70 years old, former prominent VMcr Rouge merchant; Watt Daniels, liia son; .Thomas F. Richards; Watt Ilavenport, scion of a leading Louisiana family and W. C. Andrews, a planter, were kidnapped by 40 or 50 masked men on their way from Bastrop to their homes in Mer Rouge. Watt Davenport waa released within n hour. Searcher for 21 hours tried in find the men who were kidnapped and the Jay following the affair, the elder Dan iels and Andrews found their way back to their homes at, Mer Rouge in a feri ous condition. Their stories gave but little information in regard to the kid napping. For a while neither Daniela nor An drew would discus the cae, but they finally told of how they were kid napped n their way to Mer Roug by InaMked men and everely beaten. Neither Daniel nr Andrew was ible to identify a single person in the inoh, mr rould thrr give anr inform ! tton in regard to Daniels' son, Watt, and Kicnarus. Daniels declared he recognized Ar kansas and Mississippi automobile li cense tag.
