KIDNAPERS SICK OF IT
Omaha. Packer Refuse to "Withdraw
the Reward or Give Up the Search
for the Criminals.
fTWAfTTA, April 30. An agent of the kid
napers has made a proposition -to Edward
JL Cudahy to return $21,000 of the money
paid for his son's ransom, demanding in
return a -withdrawal of the $25,000 reward
and a cessation of the search that is being
prosecuted, together with an abandon
ment of the determination to punish the
criminals. The proposition came In a
letter from Elgin, III., and Mr. Cudahy
Is convinced of Its authenticity. He went
to Chicago 10 days ago because of it, be
ing summoned there by his brother In
response to overtures that had been made.
He refused to consider the offer for a. min
ute, and declares his unchanged resolve
to prosecute to the end the search for
the men who stole his boy.
'I received a letter about 10 days ago,"
said Mr. Cudahy. "It was dated April
15, at Elgin, and bore the Elgin post
mark. I cannot show It to you because
I sent it to Mr. PInkerton; nor can I give
you Its contents verbatim, as I did not
. make a copy of It. It was very brief,
and recited that the chief kidnaper had
communicated with the writer, and was
getting uneasy. It set forth that the
ehase by the detectives was getting un
comfortably close, and asked if I would
"withdraw the offer of reward now out
standing, and let up on the effort to find
the criminals, 'and have $21,000 of the $23,-
000 ransom returned to me.
"It seems that the writer got somewhat
in a hurry, for as soon as he mailed the
letter he must have slipped right over to
Chicago, where he called on my brother,
Michael, the same day, which was two
weeks ago today. He asked my brother
whether I -would consider a proposition
of that kind. My brother told him that
he did not know anything about it, but
would ask me to come over to Chicago
and talk the matter over, althugh he did
not believe that I would consider it. That
afternoon I received a telegram from my
brother, asking if I could come over, and
1 replied that I would be over there In the
morning. I left here on the afternoon
train, and on reaching Chicago I learned
what had transpired at that end of the
line. I arrived home Thursday, and the
letter from Elgin was here awaiting me.
"The letter was signed and gave direc
tions how a reply should be addressed to
reach the writer at Elgin. I do not wish
to make that public, as assurances were
given that I would not, and that the party
could submit such proposition as he de
sired to make. So far as the offer Is
concerned, It has been rejected. I refused
absolutely and unqualifiedly to consider
It, and am determined to prosecute this
search as vigorously as I know how. That
is what we started out to do, and I feel
as If I would follow those men to the end
of the earth. I realize that this means
$46,000 to me, and that Is a sum that Is
certainly an object to any man, no
matter what may be his means. As I
feel about the matter, I would spend my
last $1000 rather than compromise with
the criminals. I am desirous of having
them punished for what they have done,
and to deter any other daring gang from
compelling other parents to undergo what
we ha.ve undergone."
BAD FOR EASTOIAK.
Some Evidence Introduced Favor
able to the Prosecution.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 30. The pen.
dulum of evidence In the Eastman murder
trial today swung slightly over to the
state's side of the case through a fa
vorable decision In the morning and some
expert testimony late In the afternoon
tending to show that the bullet taken
from Grogan's body came from a center
fire revolver, although Eastman in his
many statements said that the accident
took place while he had an old rim-fire
revolver in his hands. Members of Gro
gan's family testified that Eastman had
said that he was not on good terms with
The expert testimony offered on the
composition of the rim-fire and center
fire cartridges was of Interest, as Profes
sor Wood, of Harvard, who had made
an examination, testified that he had
found tin in the fragment of bullet taken
from Grogan's body, which corresponds
with the composition of the center-fire
bullet, while the rim-fire bullet was of
John Grogan, brother of the dead man,
described a quarrel between Eastman and
Richard Grogan In November, 1S99, when
Grogan told Eastman that he was tired
of feeding Eastman and his family. East
man was In the act of raising a chair
when witness put his foot on It .and
stepped between the men. Eastman with
drew, saying to Richard Grogan: "I will
plug you If I have to wait five years for
this." Eastman repeated this declara
two volumes. On the inside of the cover
was a depression three Inches square,
snugly fitted wlth tae 15 blocks. These
blocks are made variously of lead, wood
All the blocks are in pairs, -except one,
which is a rhomboid; and all are exactly
proportional, the sides being . either , half
an Inch, an Inch and ehalfor-two Inches
The blocks of Chinese children are not
used, as in our kindergartens, simply to
familarize the child with geometric fig
ures. The more specific purpose of the
15 magical blocks is to picture scenes of
history and myth that will have a moral
(and Intellectual effect on the budding
brain. Of course, Chinese children build
houses, bridges and wagons Just as. ours
do, but primarily their blocks are Intend
ed lor education.
The first picture ray child visitor built
for men that afternoon was a dragon
horse. I asked him to tell me about it.
The little fellow explained that this was
the.dragon horse of Fu HsL Fu HsI was
the original ancestor of the Chinese peo
ple, and he saw this animal emerge from
the depths of the Menc River. On the
hack of the dragon horse Fu HsI descried
a map containing 55 spots. These 55 spots
represent the male and female principles
of nature, and out of them the ancient
sage used to construct what are known
as the Eight Diagrams.

The jurisdiction of Oregon is composed,

In good standing. The past term has been
most prosperous, both in membership and
finances, A net gain of nearly 100 per
cent has been made in membership, while
there is now nearly $10,000 in the treas

He "Will Try Hard to Be Returned to
Senate in 1003.
WASHINGTON, April 29. According to
Senator Kyle, of South Dakota, bis late
colleague, the vicious Pettlgrew, has not
retired from public life, but. has begun a
systematic fight for re-election to the Sen
ate two years hence. Mr. Kyle says It is a
grievous mistake to think that Pettlgrew
will remain in retirement. The term of
Senator Kyle expires in 1903, and -It la
at this time that Pettlgrew hopes to re
sume his place in the Senate. The for
mer admits that he will have -a hard race,
as Pettlgrew is a stubborn and persistent
fighter, who unquestionably has a -large
following in the state. The campaign of
last Fall, which brought about the down
fall of Pettlgrew, it is admitted, was
largely assisted by the presidential cam
paign, which of Itself did much to carry
the state for the Republicans. Two years
from now there will be no national In
fluence at work. At the" same time if the
present prosperity in South Dakota con
tinues. Senator Kyle, who Is to be a can
didate to succeed himself, hopes to win
out over Pettlgrew. This announcement
of Pettigrew's- activity in his own behalf
Is somewhat of a surprise to many poli
ticians In Washington, who had come to
believe that he would remain lnaotive for
a time at least. However, those who know
him best, and recognize In him a man of
boundless energy and persistence, are not
surprised to learn of his present activity,
and in fact would have been surprise", had
the defeated Senator lost a single oppor
tunity to strengthen his own cause.

Representative BnbcocU's "Western
Trip Convinces Him ol "Wisdom
of His- Bill to This End.
WASHINGTON. April 29. Representa
tive Babcock, of Wisconsin, after a trip
of several weeks through the West, where
he went to look Into industrial condi
tions generally, has returned to Washing
ton more than ever convinced of the wis
dom of his bill introduced late in the
last session of Congress, removing the tar
iff duties on steel and Iron products that
are manufactured cheaper In this country
than anywhere else.
"It Is not material," said he, in discuss
ing the bill, "whether it Is an individual
or combination of Individuals that have
obtained control of any single product,
so that they can fix any prices they see
fit and nifrkc the consumers pay that
price. Congress and the representatives
of the people will fall short of their duty
if they permit a tariff to remain on such
articles when the tariff Is not needed for
protection on the lines advocated by the
Republican party. This is by no means
the Democratic theory. It Is in accord
ance with the Republican theory of pro
tection to American industries. When an
article can be manufactured cheaper in
this country than It can be made any
where else, that industry needs protection
no longer. If the Republican party falls
to meet the new conditions. Its whole the
ory of protection falls to the ground.
"There is a difference, for example, be
tween steel and sugar. Sugar demands
protection to develop the beet-growing In
dustries of the West, and for the cane
growers of the South. Furthermore, su
gar furnishes more revenue than any oth
er article on the tariff schedule. Sugar
should continue to receive protection un
der the Republican policy. Steel and Iron
manufactures not only produce no revenue
to speak of, but It Is" a fact that they
can be manufactured cheaper in the Unit
ed States than in any other country. This
is due to improved methods in the devel
opment of American machinery and In
ventions, and to the skill of American
' "During my absence from Washington
In the West I talked with the represen
tatives of many of the largest interests
of the country. I have not-met a single
manufacturer who did not Indorse this
movement. The only opposition I have en
countered comes from a class of people
who look upon the tariff with a reverence
to be paid a Chinese joss to be admired,
but not touched. The farmers and the
laboring classes are deeply interested in
this question. It is impossible for them
to understand how these great aggrega
tions of capital come about. This ques
tion will be brought squarely to the Re
publican party In the next campaign:
Why do you permit a tariff to remain on
articles which can be produced here
cheaper than elsewhere? What answer
will be made to that proposition?
"It has been suggested to me by one or i
