See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Captain Robert Rosenbluth, indicted last October for the alleged murder of Major Alexander P. Cronkhite of the 213th U.S. Engnsers at the Camp Lewis military reservations in the State of Washington, was released yesterday and his bail of $40,000 discharged by U.S. Commissioner Hitchcock and returned to Felix M. Warburg.

It was held the Federal Grand Jury in Washington which found the Indictment had no jurisdiction in the case. This was contended all along by Louis Marshall, Counsel for Rosenbluth.

State authorities of Pierce County have dropped the Cronkhite case for lack of evidence against Capt. Rosenbluth.
