Fortunately Only One Dole TfM Otten to
the Tatlent by Wny ot a Sleeping Draught.
Ths'mlatnko of putting up atropine for mor
phine In a prescription has been made onae
more, and as a result ot the pharmacist's error
Mrs. A. M. Moore of 877 Blxth avonue has lain
In bed tor mare than a fortnight, with the ill
ness tor whloh the medlolne was prescribed
aggravated. Mrs., Moore bad suffered from
rheumatism and an Injury to her knee. For
some time she was unable to sleep, and on
Nov. 16 Dr. Joseph Byrne of 345 West Fifty
first street gave her a prescription calling for
morphine In raspborry syrup and water. The
prescription, was filled at the drug store ot
George B. Sohwelnturth at 800 Sixth avenue
early In the evening ot that day. About 11
o'clock a dose ot the medicine was given to
the patient, and a few hours later her condi
tion became such that the watohers by her bed
sldo became alarmed, and when elie boeamo
delirious Dr. Byrne was sent for In a hurry. ""
He reached the house about 3 or 4 o'clook lu
the morning, and as soon as ho saw Mrs.
Moore he asked. In ths heat ot the moment,
"What tho duvll have you beon giving her?"
Slio wni delirious, her pulse was fesb'e. and
the pupils ot tho eyes were greatly dilated.
Mrs. Moore's daughter said that her mother
had taken only the doctor's medlolne. "Oh,
no." said the doctor, "that was not my medl
clno that put her into that oondltton; she's
got belladonna poisoning." . ,
Dr. Byrne examined aud tested tho medl
olne, and found, he says, that In the bottle that
was to have contained the morphine mixture
there was atropine Mrs. Moore remained de
lirious throughout the next day. It was not
until yesterday that she got un from bed.
Dr. Byrne said last nlclit, when questioned
about tho esse: "1 can see no exiuse for such
a nilstako as' that was. though I should not
huve said anything about the matter, except
to show that the error was not mine, at my
own Initiative. I went to the druggist and he
admitted Hint the mistake had boen made,
although he said that he did not Bee how It
could have beon made It hud been made
by a clerk, ho said. He showed me the ar
rangement of his poison closet, to enter n hlch
it Is necessary to pass through two doors.
The morphine bottle there Is twice the site of
tho atropine bottle. He told me that the solu
tions he carried contained, respectively, two
grains ot morphine to the drachm and one
grain ot atropine to the drachm. My pre
scription called tor a grain of morphine tn an
ouneo of raspberry syrup and ?.-ater, to be
given In teaspoonfu! doses, which would have
given an eighth ot a grain to a doss. H
"The druggist says that a halt drachm of
the atropine solution was put up In the pre
scription (that would have been the right
quantity of the morphine solution it it Is In tbe
proportions he says at his shop): this would
give the patient at a teaspoontul doo one
sixteenth grain of atropine. Ono-stxtleih
grain would be a g"od dose for an adult.
Adults do not tolerate atropine as well ns chil
dren do. So she got nearly tour times the
dose of atropine that would have been given
If atropine had bseu prescribed."
Mr. Sahwelnfurth said to a reporter last
night that he knew nothing about the matter
further than that a mistake had been made.
ihat Dr. Byrne knew all the particulars and that
Ir. Swartz, Mr. Bchwelnfurth'a former part
ner, who was latterly a clerk and who had put
up the prescription, had been discharged be
cause of his mistake.
The poisoning ot Mrs. Moore was made the
subjeot of comment by Edward Thlminp, Sec
retary of the Druggists' League for Shorter
Hours, last night In an address delivered before-
the Enworth :iub at 'JO'J East Fifty-sixth
street, on "Drug Trade Horrors and tho Ten
Hour BUI of the Druggists' League for hhorter
Hours as the First Attempt to ltemedv Them."
He said that occurrences similar to the Moore
oase happened overy day, although not as a
rule so serious as this one. and that a number
of fatal cases occurred In the course ot a year.

Santiaoo db Uuua. Deo, 2. The recently ap
pointed Supreme Court, consisting ot Urbano
Sanohez Eohevarrla. Chief Justloe; Enlatdo
Tamayo, Joso Varela, Luis Gaston and M. de J
Mandutey, Associate Justices, was formally In
stalled In office to-day. The ceremony was
Impressive. Tho Installation took place In the
Supreme Court building on Calls 1 Marino,
opposite tne provincial jail.
The Justices sent a message to the palace re
questing the presonce of Gen. Wood. He knew
nothing of the plan of having a formal Instal
lation, and wont to the Supremo Court building
nttired In a khaki uniform and riding boots.
He found the llvo Justices and thirty promi
nent members ot tho Santiago bar tn the court
room, til attlrod in the black gowns which Indi
cate, according to Spanish custom, their legal
calling. Tho robes of tho Justices differ from
thoso of the members ot tho bar only In tho
trimming, the cuffs ot tho Justices being ot yel
low satin and those ot the lawyers of white.
Upon the arrival of Gen. Wood tho Associate
Justices formed In a circle around the chair ot
Chlof Justloo Echovarrla and asked Gon. Wood
totakoaseat. Tho court thon Informed him
through Cnpt. Ramon Mcudoza, who acoompa
nlcd him, that It was roady to administer the
law ot the province according to his ideas.
Gen. Wood told the Justices that they formed
the Supremo Court of tho province, and would
continue as suoh until a court for the whoto
Island, to sit In Havana, should bo established.
They had been recbmmondod, he added, by the'
best citizens of the province as able lawyers
and clear-headed men. He believed that they
represented the best element ot the provincial
population, and had confidence In them. He.
as agent ot the military power of tho United
States, would support their acts Gen. Wood
outlined the course which he believed would bo
wisest for them to pursue, and pointed out cer
tain things that required immediate attention.
The Justices each accepted the supremacy ot
tho Uultod States so long as tho Stars and
Stripes should float over tho island, and then
the first session of the court began. There Is
niuoh important litigation to be settled and
tho court will bo busy for several months.
Gen. Wood told the correspondent of 'Ins Sun
to-day that he believed ho had souurod the best
men in the province tor Judges. He is confi
dent that they will work harmoniously. He
will watch their first acts closely, and. It it be
comes necessary, will use tho power of removal
vested In him.
Gen. Wood told a committee ot prominent
citizens to-day that they should do something
among themselves to suppress the attacks
mado by tho pross on Americans. Ho said:
" What your papers say makes no difference
to me. but they are hurting you and your peo
ple. I used to get large voluntary contribu
tions from philanthropists in America for the
relief of distress a none the Cubans, and re
ceived many Inquiries regarding business

Oen. Wood, by bis intelligent polloy, has won
over many neutrals. The only active opposi
tion to tbe American administration In the olty
comes from a bunch of recalcitrants in Uie Ban
Carlos Club and oertaln newspapers.
Gen. Wood has appointed Col. Franolsco
Tallento, formerly commander of the Cuban
brigade In the Sagua de Tanamo dlstriot. chief
ot the rural police tn the district. Obi. Vallente
was the first Cuban loader In the province to
disband his command and send his men home
to work on their farms, telling them to leave the
solution ot political problems to the Americans.
He is a member of an old Santiago family, and
was educated in ths United States. He has
rendered considerable sorvlco to the Ameri
cans lately. His action in disbanding his com
mand was In violation of the orders of the
Camaguey Government, and it mado him very
unpopular among the revolutionists, but he Is
well thought of by tho better elements of the
community. He will immediately begin a
thorough organization of the rural police.
Gen. Wood has abandoned tho Idea of placing
an American at the hend of the rural police.
He cannot spare any of his competent military
men tor the plaee, and he has now decided to
give tho Cubans a thorough trial. He believes
that CoL Vallente will be successful in main

this city, but two years ngo soparated from him
and rocclvod a decroo of divorce eighteen
months ngo. Shortly afterward sho married
Bcott, and both she and her new husband were
excommunicated from tho Church, aa tho
Church does not reoognizo a marriage with a
divorced person. t.
The wedding occurred Just before elsotlon,
but was kept a scorot, as tho Fourteenth ward
has a Atrong Cathollo vote and Mr. Scott
thought It would Injure his ohanoes forsleo
tlon as Alderman. As soon aa the voto was
counted, however, the marrlago waa an
nounced and It created quite a stir.

to come, making the proviso, however, that
Mrs. Seott leave the house while he was ad
ministering the last rites to her dying hus
band. Mrs. Scott made no objection, and, talcing her
two children, went to the homo of her father at
Fourth and Berry htreots. Bhe remained
there for soveral hours and then returned
to her husband's bedside She refused an au
dience to reporters last night, saying she had
no comment to male on the action of Fathor
C.irroll and Fathor Wood. When Father Car
mil was asked If he had refused to arfrnlnlstor
extreme unction to Scott he would make no re
ply other than: "All I will say Is that wo did
our duty as we sen It."
Scott Is about 40 years old and very well-to-do.
He Is a business partner of Benator Pat
rick IL McCarren, who conducted Augustus
