TRACE POISONED AL
Delivered by Strange Man at Phil
adelphia Express Office.
1 t«... [By TVlenraph to The Tribune.]
Philadelphia, July 2,-The bottle said to have con
tained poisoned ale sent to Dr. William H. Wil
son, it was learned to-day, was delivered to hi?
home, at No. 819 North 7th street, by an express
man of the Philadelphia Local Express Company.
who received it apparently from a stranger at the
company office. No. 116 North 13th Street.
This Information was Y en this afternoon by
treorge Stern, agent of the company at that ad
ores*, who declared the package had been received
over the counter at the office by Fred Buckman.
an employe, now in Atlantic City.
Stern , mya Uurkman told him before he left
Philadelphia for the seashore that a man had
come in and delivered the package to him over
the counter." ■-•- -,
Stern says Buckman exhibited to him the receipt
the express messenger took at the Wilson house.
As he remembers it, the receipt bore the words,
Wilson. 619 N. 7th." and was signed at the bot
tom. "Mrs. Wilson."
Stern, moreover, thinks he remembers Buckman
having .told him that the slip brought in by the
stranger bore the name of a local brewery. al
though he was not positive on this point.
The detectives have obtained from Buckman a
rood description of the stranger, who was a man
thirty-five to forty years old and well dressed.
Mrs. Wilson went to the District Attorney's of
fice in City Hall to-day with her counsel. F. J.
Maneely, and had a conference with Assistant
District Attorney Joseph 11. Taulane. Others pres
ent were Detectives Paul and Long, of the Cor
oner's office, who have been working on the case,
and acting Coroner Arthur Sellers. Mrs. Wilson
was closely questioned by Mr. Taulane, and at his
request she related all the circumstances of the
delivery of the box containing the bottle of sup
posedly poisoned ale. She also told of placing the
ale on a table and of the doctor drinking It. Mrs.
Wilson said she did not know who sent the ale
and had no suspicions or theories to advance.
After the conference Mrs. Wilson returned to
her home. She was accompanied by the detectives,
who desired to make another examination of the
house. In the hope of finding a better clew.
Detective Paul stated after the visit of Mrs.
Wilson to the City Hall that Mrs. Wilson was not
under arrest and that she was not suspected, but,
on the contrary, the clews point to somebody out
side the house.
Mr. Man*-ely snld he was called Into the case
yesterday when Mrs. W'Hon desired to file letters
of administration for her husband's estate, the
physician having left no win. It is understood the
estate consists of realty and persona! property to
the amount of about $1,800.
Mr. Maneely further said that Mrs. Wilson was
asked yesterday to appear at the City Hall to-day,
and that she went there under the impression that
an Inquest wan to be held In the case of her hus
band. She was greatly surprised when she was
escorted to the District Attorney's office.
In their further investigation of the antecedents
of Wilson Detective Paul received Information to
day which leads him to believe that Wilson's real
name was Frlehoff. and that he went on the stage
for a time and adopted the name of William H.
Wilson. He was married about twenty years ago
and was the father of four children. About ten or
twelve years ago he separated from his first wife,
who died about two years ago. Shortly after the
separation he married the present widow, by whom
he had one child. It is learned that Wilson was
steward at one time at the Lilacs, a club in Fair
Letters of administration were filed on Dr. Wil
son's estate yesterday. The murdered man left no
will, and It is stated that his personal property is
valued at $800 and his realty nt $1,000, but it Is
Bald that he was worth considerably more than
this, since he owned the house in which he lived,
as well as a bungalow at Cornwells. had an an
tomobile, a gasolene launch and his house was
handsomely furnished. He was known as a lavish
spender and a liberal contributor to many causes
In his neighborhood. • •
Undoubtedly the authorities have now a tangible
clew to work on. It is asserted that the descrip
tion of the man who left the poisoned bottle of
ale at the express office to be delivered nt the
Wilson home tallies with that of the man sus
pected In the case from the first, and it is for him
that the authorities are hunting. That he has not
been apprehended Is due chiefly to the fact that
at the time the detectives knew where he whs they
had only suspicions upon which to act.

Every flay of his life, from the time that he Rave

VERBAL BETTING LEGAL

the contention is that these words define the
criminality vt the relator's receipt of his win
nings when read: "Any person who receives
. . .' Jiny money . . . bet or wagered
. . . by . . . any other person . . .
ui>"n such result." ftc.
For the purpose of determining the intention
of the Legislature wlvn adopting ■ statute, it
must net ecsarily be read ar- a whole. Only when
so read can the conclusion be reached whether
isolated words of the text may or may not
properly be placed together In such a sense as
to cover a particular case.
The very words of the clause under which
the relator is hold would seem. Indeed, to ex
clude the meaning that the "bet", "received"
described money won as the result of a bet.
since from the context it is apparent that what
Is contemplated if» the act of receiving, register
ing, recording or forwarding the subject of a
wager as yet undetermined — before, not after. It
Is won or lost. " The "fair Import" of the statute
under consideration is to be the measure of its
application, and as I read the words employed
I cannot hold that Section 3.11 fairly imports
that a bet or the receipt of the thing wagered
is a crime.
The whole scheme of the section appears upon
a reasonable reading to relate to bookmaklng
and poolselling: that is. to the business of tak
ing and recording bets and wagers and to acts
which are Incidental to that business.
APPLIES TO THE STAKEHOLDER.
In taking up the language of the law Justice
Bischoff said that he thought the phrase "by or
for any other person" pertained to the "receipt,
registering, forwarding, etc." and not to the
money or thing wagered. This, he said, was in
harmony , with the movement against profes
sional bookmaking and gambling. In referrrlng
to the District Attorney's contention t:iat all
gambling was aimed at, the court said:
The construction contended for by the Dis
trict Attorney requires a strained application of
the words employed in the statute, contrary to
their apparent sense, and It is quite clear to my
mind that this section of the Penal Code has
actually no reference to the case of a bet made
between individual", without the intermediate
office of a stakeholder, nor to the winner's re
ceipt of the money, or other thing of value
transferred to him by the loser when the event
For all the years during which this statute
has been in force it has not been deemed ap
plicable to the case of ordinary Individual
betting. In People agt. Stedeker the Court of
Appeals when discussing the condition of the
law relative to gaming in this state said:
"There has always been observed a distinc
tion between betting or gambling and maintain
ing a gambling house or place to which people
resort to gamble. While at common law wagers
on indifferent subjects were legal and might be
enforced, a gambling house or a resort for
gamblers was a public nuisance, for which Its
keeper might be indicted.
"The same distinction has obtained in this
state where ordinary betting has never been
made a crime, though In some cases subject to
small pecuniary mulcts, while the keeping of a
gambling house, spiling lottery tickets and the
profession Of a common gambler have been
subjected to severe punishment."
"SHOCK TO COMMON SENSE."
Justice Bischoff took up the fact that a man
who cheats at cards can be punished only as
having committed a misdemeanor. This, com
pared to the "winning of money at simple haz
ard," he said, wus a "shock to common sense."
In closing he said:
It may not be out of place to note that if this
relator is properly charged with a crime because
of a construction of Section 351, then every
wager on a contingent event, if followed by the
receipt of something by the winner, would place
the latter within reach of the criminal law. The
consequences of criminality would descend alike
upon the successful participant in a raffle con
ducted for religious or charitable purposes.
upon the girl whose partisanship for a college
lins bo»>n rewarded by the winning of gloves or
candy through Its athletic fulfilment, upon the
messenger who. with knowledge, carries from
loser to winner the thing won, and upon all
who bet upon anything; except, possibly, upon a
certainty, where the bet Is paid.

by the board of directors of the National Educa

annual convention of the association. Final ac
tion will not be taken \futll the next session of
the board, in December. Denver won over Atlantic
City, Chicago and Seattle.
With no general session of the a«s< . - iatlon on
the programme, the delegation spent the day In
several departmental meetings, ejecurwiono and
The educational department of the national or
ganization of women at Its meetings to-day de
elded not to change the name of the. body. The
purpose of this organization, which is holding its
first session, is to Interest the schools In com
munity work and endeavor to have all the chil
dren of the school neighborhood in school or
accounted for. Miss Jane Addamn. of Chicago,
talked upon the work being done along this line
by the Juvenile court in Chicago. The women
desired a shorter name for their society, which
also would suggest the laity feature. It was de
cided to make no change for a few years, if at all.
The first session of the niral and agricultural
department, also a new department, was held to
day. The object of this section is to extend the
study of agriculture in the rural districts, plac
ing farming on a scientific and business basis.
While many schools?, it was said, have taken up
this work. It is the purpose of the department to
Increane. the number of such schools and add to
the efficiency of those already established. Also,
it was urged that home gardening be encouraged
in the city schools and that the school yards be
kept in eueh condition that they would set a
profitable example in their various communities.
A thorough study of shops and machines, and
not so much of the science as now taught in the
elementary and high schools, and a more scientific
study of agriculture in rural schools, were the
main points brought out in the discussion of the
report of the committee on Industrial education for
rural schools at the council meeting.
The report was submitted by the newly elected
president, Lorenzo Dow Harvey, of Menominee,
Wis. Klmer Ellsworth Brown. Vnited States Com
missioner of Education, Washington, and D. B.
Johnson, president of Wlnthrop Normal and In
dustrial College, Rock Hill, S. C. were the leading
speakers during the discussion of the report.

P. S. C. AGALVST CHANGE
Call* Alteration in Fourth Avenue
Subway Plans Impracticable.
The Public Service Comml!>*lan announced yester
day tha». after a thorough investigation by th« en
gineering department It had been found Impractica
ble to change the plans for the Fourth avenue sob
war by substituting four additional tracks in
Flatbu&h av*ntie for the Ashram! Place loop. This
sii«r«;e«if!orj was made by th« United Borouzhs Tran
sit Association. It was found that no room existed
la Fl.iftrush for the additional tracks, and
the only way to build them would b«> to piace them
undenvath the present subway. The er.ulneer» r»
ported that the Mtl of this would be prohibitive.
Acting Chief Engineer Rice, to whoae department
the suggestion was referred, reported that consid
erable n-al estate would have to be purchased if th«
scheme were carried through. Estimates of the
cost of the Ashland Place loop have placed it ■■
$7,«A0C0 for the section from Flatfish avenue ami
Fulton street to Flatbush avenue and Fourth ave
nue. Including the cost of real estate necessary-
Hi Mm figured that the proposed four-tracking
of Flutbt:sh avenue would cost several million dol
lars more, since the tracks would have to be laM
below rater level by the us" cf the compressed air
method. Such a connection as was proposed with
the existing subway could be made, but only by
permission of the Interboroush Rapid Transit Com
GMmh of Th« Bronx are considerably stirred
up over the proposed .-hanci- in the name of the
Now York City Interborougb. Railroad Company,
from Its present style to that of The Bronx CM»
town Railway Company. Protests have* been sent
to the Public Service Commission :i«afni»t this
change in name by the Taxpayers' Alliance of the
Borough of The Bronx. Robert C. Wood, one of
the stockholders, who has a complaint as to tba
unused franchises of this company under Investiga
tion by the commission, and others. These com
plaints cam-; a little too late, as the commission a
few days agn granted its permission. There Is some
, question whether the case may not be reopened In
view of the distinct opposition to the change,
Ada C. Hottenrcth, president of the Taxpayers*
Alliance, writes that this change would have "a
decided effect upon property interests la various
sections of the Borough of The Bronx" traversed
by the lines of this company.
Much interest hi being shown In the effort of the
commission to have continued an adequate service
on the s!>th street cro«stown line and others op
erated by th- Central- Park, North and East River
Railroad Company. The hearing called by Chair
man Wlina to decide m what the duties and
powers of this company will be toward the public
when the New York City Railway Company's lease
la cancelled, on July 10. will be held to-day at U
a. m. in the commission's rooms in the Tribune
