Today Harry Kunefke. Mitchell is under arrest. He is declared by Douglas county authorities to be one of the three or four men implicated in the robbery. Most of last night and All morning state and Federal officers and states attorney Sharpe of Douglas county Laboured to obtain a confession from the Man but Kunefke stolidly denies his guilt. Officers have been unable to recover any of the Bonds or the Money but on searching Kunefke a Home on East first Avenue yesterday they did discover some goods alleged to have been stolen from a Milwaukee freight car Here recently. A part of the goods it is said has been identified. According to states attorney Sharpe. Dykshoorn. Who lives alone in his Little farm Home near Corsica was peeling potatoes about to of clock sunday evening when three men entered his House. They asked if they could borrow a lantern or Candle in order to see to make some adjustments on their car. Dykshoorn told them he had neither lantern nor Candle and i then suddenly one of the men covered him with a revolver while another struck him Over the head and knocked him to the floor the robbers then demanded that he Tell them where his Money was Sharpe says that they expected to find about $23,000 in the Shack. Tortured with bums Dykshoorn refused to Tell about his savings at first but the robbers burned his hands with cigarette stubs choked him with a rope and otherwise mistreated him.

It is also known or Sharpe said that Kunefke spent All of last week in the Vicinity of Corsica. Or. Sharpe declare that it is his belief that Kunefke returned to Mitchell on Friday obtained the help of two or possibly three confederates and went to Dykshoorn a Home for the express purpose of committing the robbery. He said that Kunefke probably would be taken to Corsica i this afternoon and confronted with Dawes plan is cutting out work on reparations Paris. France sept. 24.�? a5 a application of the Dawes reparation plan is so diminishing the activities of the reparation commission that the commissions staff is being Cut Down considerably and the eventuality of important changes in the commission itself is being considered in diplomatic and political circles. It is understood that the British government is in favor of radically reducing the expenses of the commission even favouring the substitution of regular diplomatic agents for the present members. Realization of this project is meeting with difficulty from French sources where any belittling of the importance of the commission and any diminishing of its activity before the efficiency of the Dawes plan is definitely demonstrated Are looked upon with Disfavour.
