One Way to Deal With Him Publisher Tells v Tale of Torture By Chicago Thugs Editor of St. Louis v Paper Kidnaped and Held for fiansom in Windy - City. Chlengo Trlbune-Omaba Bea LMIwj Wire. Chicago, Jan. 9. Jacques Villard, wealthy publisher and editor of a St Louis paper , and owner of a cor respondence school in that city, has returned to h:s home after a myste rious absence since December 27,"and relates a weird tale of kidnaping and torture at the hands of Chicago thugs. v ' Villard has no legs and requires to e carried1 about by a servant. He came to Chicago in search ot an interpreter. He advertised and many foreigners visited h!m at his room in the Hotel La Salle On the night of December 27, a large man, apparently a Pole or a Swede, car ried him from the room and put him in a cab.' " From that minute all trace of him was lost. He says his captors took him to a filthy hovel in a scct'on of the city utterly unknown to him, where. they had him prisoner, constantly threat ening him with death unless he in duced his wife to pay heavy ransom. Meanwhile a fake letter had been sent from New York to his wife, saying he had aprived there and would write more fully in a day or so. He bad $6,000 in cash when he came to Ch:cago. The robbers took most of this and Friday n ght, be coming alarmed over the publicity and the active search for himi they took Villard in a closed cab miles away from h;s ' prison and threw him to the street. It was a bitterly cold n:ght and they - left him a blanket. A, man and woman heard his cries for help and reported to the pol'ce, but meanwhile aMaxicab driver had found him andalcen him to the rail way station, as he wanted to get to St. LHiis as speedily as "possible. He was robbed of all his jewelry, worth $700, and his captors forced him to write a check for $700, but they were afraid to cash it. Officer of Farm Body v Against Legislation Dealing With Futures Washington. D. C, Jan. 9. (Spy. cial Telegram.) Congressman Mc Laughlin of Nebraska a member of the agricultural committee now hold ing hearings on a number of bills dealing with futures on grain, cot tion, etc., presented a telegram yes terday from J. W. Shorthil, secretary of the Nebraska ' Farmers" Co operative Grain and Live, Stock as sociation, with headquarters in Oma ha, opposing such legislation on the ground that it would be anything but beneficial to the grain interests of the United States and might crip ple the market. Mr. Shorthill urged increased market facilities through the co operation of farmers and intimated that a marketing company might prove more advantageous than put ting a stop to dealing in futures. It is rather surpriisng that Ne braska has not been represented at these hearings, although is under stood that C. yH. Gustafson and C. VV. Pugsley had intimated thev would like to be heard. McLaughlin said the committe had no word from the committee of 17, which also had asked to be heard on the bills pend ing before Jhe committee. Congressman Jefferis sent to the governors of the soldiers' homes throughout the country today an endorsement of Capt. Clair Adams of Omaha for the position of super intendent at the Santa' Monica (Cal.) Soldiers home. j Marble Bust of Judge Mason To Be Renovated Monthly Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 9.

Washington, Jan. 9. The Ameri can Red Cross executive committee has appropriated $5,000,000 to carry out its program of furnishing need ed assistance for children in Europe. In making this announcement. Mr. Livingston Farrand, chairman of the central committee vof the Red Cross, said the scope of the society's relief operations in Europe was be ing altered so that it might be con fined almost entirely to this work. "The work which the American Red. Cross , aims specially to carry on is in the interest of the children who require medical care," he said, "and should not be confused with that of feeding several million chil dren who are not afflicted by disease The general feeding problem is to be met by the European relief council." Nearly 2ft child relief units of the American Red Cross are already in the field, Mr. Farrand said, most of them in Folan-d and ultimately there will be at least 100. Plans for the work embraces'the Baltic states, t.nd, to a certain extent, Austria and Hungary, as well as Poland and ad jacent countries and Jugo-Slavia. Air Mail Item Struck !

This service will.be inaugurated in the early spring between Chicago and Cheyenne, Wyo., and will re sult in delivering mail from New York to Cheyenne within 24 hourj. The run from Cheyenne to San Fran cisco will ''then be a matter of 12( hours flying. Incidentally, in addi tion to this very great expedition of the mail between New York and San Francisco, the., transcontinental air mail "will prove of great value to the military air operations through the maintenance every 200 miles of hangars, landing fields and me chanical and, fuel . facilities which are always at the disposal of the military forces." Mr. Jefferis sajd it was his belief that any invention or achievement should be encouraged that would bring the West nearer the east. Enterprise Displayed by Omaha. , He called attention to the enter prise displayed by the different cities Included in the air mail rout.es in raising large sums of money for hangars and landing fields and he pa:d.a high compliment to the busi ness men of Omaha'in making Jt possible to have in that city the larg est commercial hangar in the; coun try and a splendid landing field which, he said, could be used at any. time by the military forces of the cbuntry. - . : Even thouRh the transportation of mail by aeroplane costs more than by rail, which is conceded, I main tain that the utilization of this service is in the interest of econo my," said Congressman Jefferis. "Should you place this iir service in a particular bureau of the army or the navy, millions would be spent uoon it without any value whatso ever except in the training of aviators in the line of wanfprepareaness. ow if you spend this money for air mail service you would be rendering ,i very great service to the business' interests of the whole" country in stead of centralizing it in either the navy or the war departments." "Unfair to People, ' ' He further said that to strike out; the item on a point of order was not dealing fairly with the people who have put up their money to provide fields and hangars for "the service. He said it was the function of the Postoffice department to carry the mail by whatever methods would subserve the best interests of the public, expedition being the basis of the service, and he insisted that the airplane service had much to com mend it 'as a mail carrier of the future. , Notwithstanding the fight he put up, in which hevwas aided by Con gressman Evans of Nebraska, and one or two others, the item went out on a point of order. The senate will now be asked to testore vthe item and should the upper body put the appropriation back in the postoffice bill, effort will be made to retain the item in conference.

Indications Point ' To Busy Week Facing Sate Legislature Lincoln, Jan. 9. (SpeciaD All signs point to a busy week facing the legislature in the introduction of bills, assignment of bills to com mittees and endeavoring in a small degree to make preparations for grinding out legislation. Despite an appeal by Walter Anderson, speakar of the lower house, to members asking them to delay introduction of bills until this week, ambitious legislators from Omaha and other sections in a short half hour managed to threw 14 measures into the house hopper in less than an hour Friday morning. If this action Friday is a criterion pf the 4erfotmances of the coming week, Mebraskans may iook xor ward to an avalanche ' of bills, which, by their number and the variety of subjects they will cover, will for a time put the reading clerk and speaker into a frenzy in as signing and disposing of the meas ures in such a 4way as to insure rapid disposition of them in the proper legislative channels. j m m mm .
