Omaha, Jim. 2. Another letter, print
ed with a lead pencil, was received by
K. A. Cudahy this afternoon, demand
ing the withdrawal of the reward for
the kidnappeis. The fact that tho ad
dress was printed lu similar style to
the former ones gave rise to tho sus
picion that It was fiom the same
source, but Mr. Cudahy stated tonlisht
that he did not attach the slightest
significance to It. He said It was ot
tho same class as several others that
hud been received from vurlous points,
except that It had been printed. The
letter demanded the withdrawal of the
Cudahy offer of reward and of the
city's offer as well, under penalty not
only of trouble for the children, but
tho destruction of the entire "Cudahy"
fnmlly. The epistle closed with nn In
junction to "heed this winning."
In spite of the two fortunes which
have been offered for the arrest nnd
conviction of the kidnappers, their
secret Is still kept. Nothing In the
way of cildcnco to connect John Crowe
with the kldnupplng was produced. He
was brought before Police Judge Learn
this afternoon. No complaint was tiled
against hlni, and he was discharged
During the afternoon Hddle Cudahy
was taken to the city jail by Detective
Donohue. In the Hertlllon room had
congregated a number of police olll
cers. Into this assemblage Crowe was
brought and questioned, the purpose
being to let young Cudahy hoar his
voice. When the Inquisition was nt an
end, Eddie Cudahy df dared that tho
voice of John Crowe bore no resein
blunce to the voice of his guard. He
said, In addition, that Crowe was not
nearly so stout as the man who had
pointed the revolver In his face and
called hlni "Eddie McGee."
Equally bud fortune befell the police
In their efforts to identify the horse
and buggy belonging to John Crowe.
Seciot Service Agent Wltten today
stated positively that ho saw Pat
Crowe !n St. Joseph, Mo the Fii-Jay
after tho kidnapping. He docs not
think he wns one of tho kldnnppers.
