luopettles in the Schuylkill region to
the latltoads had been facilitated eaily
in the HovcntlcH by the outlawry of
the Mollic Magiilic-s which had made
It unpleusant to be ldentllled with coal
mining. The witness leculled that In
ISil-85 operators were able to find
transpoilatlon for the output of their
mines for only twenty-seven days In

Much mysteiy surrounds the uricst
of the alleged kidnapper. Not until
this afternoon was a wend pcimlttcd
to be made public on the case, al
though It has been learned that the
nrrest was maile Saturday night. Two
local olllceis aie said to have made
the captuie. The pi Isoner Is said to
have been under suivelllance for nomo
time, as It was believed he had been
writing letters concerning thn case.
When the detectives bad fully satis
fied their suspicion they placed the''
man In the city Jail. Separate Inter
views with the thiee peisons men
tioned stiengthened the belief that olio
of the principals Is at least caught
and tho partial announcement of his
at rest followed.
Late this afternoon it was learned
that James Callahan, an ex-i'onvlct, Is
the man under nnest. He has lived
several years with his sister, Mrs.
Kelly, at Fifty-third stfet and 'U'ool

of Pat Crowe.

Callahan denies ub.solutel that he
had anything to do with the kidnap

friend of Clowe. Ho says ho can piove
an alibi and states that dining the
time which it Is elalm-d ho spent
guarding young Cudahy he was at the
home of his sister, a Mis. Kelly, liv
ing fit Poppleton avenue and I-'Ifty-third
street, which is a short distance
from the Melrose Hill Hotibe.
