      CHICAGO, April 24 ? John Cudahy, Board of Trade operator, banker and pioneer packer, died at his home here last night, aged 71. Mr. Cudahy had never completely recovered from an operation for appendicitis he underwent four years ago.
      He sought to renew his health in California several months ago and since has been in the care of physicians. He is survived by his wife, two daughters and and two sons.
      No other man bore a high reputation on the Board of Trade of in commercial circles here that John Cudahy. He was born in Ireland, Nov 5, 1843, and in 1849 came with his family to this country, locating at Milwaukee. There he was education and as a boy entered the packing industry, being employed in thru by Edward Roddis, Layton & Co. and John Plankinton, large packinghouse firms. He was the first appointed general provision inspector for the Board of Trade of Milwaukee.
      He became a partner of Chapin & Co. in Chicago, in 1875, the firm becoming Chapin & Cudahy in 1877 and later the Cudahy Packing Company. As a speculator he had hardly an equal. He controlled with his brother the largest packing house in Milwaukee, and the leading packing house in Louisville, the Stock Yards Company there, and a large plant at Nashville. He resided on Michigan Boulevard, near 33rd Street.
