PENDLETON, April 7. The East
Oregonlan related last 'evening:
Foiled In his atttempt to secure $1,200
from hlB uncle on a fake kidnaping
scheme which he had worked up with
himself as the alleged victim, L. A.
Raup, aged 20 years and a member of
one of Milton's most highly respected
families, is now held In the county
jail. The uncle whom he sought to
blackmail is S. A. Miller, president
of the Milton nursery company and
former mayor of Milton.
Kaup failed to get the money as
planned simply because he lost his
nerve, as the uncle was about to com
ply with the demands of the myster
ious letter he had received. It Is not
believed however, that the young man
would have been able to make his es
cape with the money, even though he
had secured it.
Threats In Lettter.
The letter received by Mr. Miller
was not signed, but declared a mys
terious "we" had captured his neph
ew and was holding him for a ran
som of $12000. He was commanded
to take this sum of money at 11
o'clock last night, out along the rail
road track east from Milton to a
point where, he would find a dim j
light. Here he was to deposit the
money and after turning the light ar
ound, return home , where he was
commanded to wait until his nephew
appeared before reporting the inci
dent. Failure to comply with the de
mands of the alleged kidnaper was
to be followed by the burning to death
of the nephew and also the killing ot
.Mr. Miller's little daughter.
Lonpn 11 In .V-rie.
Yesterday's wind and dust slorm,
however, was evidently too much for
the self-kidnaper for he lost his nerve
and appeared at his uncle's home
about 8:15 last evening, after having
been hid out in a deserted house, the
property of his grand-father, Sunday
night and all of yesterday. To those
at the house he declared he had been
seized bv two men and taken to a
straw slack Sunday night an dthat he
had . escaped from his captors while
they were drinking and playing cards.
His story' of the kidnaping was to
the effect that he had left his board
ing house to go down town to pur
chase some tobacco and that he was
onWPii ty thf nllpireri kidnapers-, while
on the road. He said his captors were
Kapp said he had no Intention of
carrying out the threats contained in
the letter, saying It was his original
intention to skip the country, if his
attempt to get the money was a fail
ure. Tills morning he declared that
he sought his uncle for the purpose of
making a clean breast of the whole
affair and that he fixed up the other
story after he reached the house and
found his uncle was not at home. He
uys he would not have told the story
of the kidnaping, had his uncle been
home. but lie would have told him
