OF SCANDAL IH
Admits That Situation for
Bribery Probing Looks
NEW YORK, February 12. Prcbidcnt
Taft, sitting for an hour and a half to
day in conference with republican state
leaders, showed much concern in the
latest scandal the Conger-Allds
bribery nt Albany and on departing
confided to his intimates that tho "sit
uation looks very bad."
The president thus passively, nt least,
waded into tho troublous whirlpool of
New York state republican politics,
brought to an acute stage of lato by one
state senator against another.
Tho conferenco was held at the New
York residenco of Lloyd C. Grisconi,
former ambassador to Italy, but recent
ly elected president of tho New York
republican county committee, succeed
ing Herbert Parsons. Besides tho pres
ident and Mr. Griscom, thoro wcro pres
ent: Timothy L. Woodruff, stato chair
man; Sonator Depow, Governor Hughes,
James W. Wadsworth, speaker ot the
stato assembly, and Otto Baunard.
, Discussion contored almost solely on
tho Allds-Congcr case, involving tho
two loading proposals: whether the par
ty should investigate to tho limit, or,
if possible, smother it.
Tho concensus of opinion appeared
to be to probo to tho bottom regardless
Thero had been a rumor that a de
mand had been made for tho resigna
tion of Stato Chairman Woodruff. 'Mr.
Woodruff, asked about this, said:
"Wo talked about nothing but the-
Allds case. No call was made upon
mo to resign ana yon can quote me as
saying so. I will not say that I shall
conduct tho next campaign, but I shall
be chairman until tho next stato con

IS CHARGED TO
Tale Told of Deadly Drug
Found in Stomach of Miss
WHEN NURSES QUIT
Paxton Openly Accuses Dr.
Hyde of Being the Mur
derer of Colonel Swope
KANSAS CITY, February 12. That
poison had been found in tho contents
of tho stomach of Miss Margaret H.
Swope, and that Chrisman Swope went
into convulsions, according to Mis'
Anno Houlihan, his nurse, a few min-.
utes after she had given him a capsule
at the direction of Dr. B. C. Hyde,
were two startling statements made un
der oath by John G. PaxtOn, executor
of the Swope estate today.
These new and important features in
tho Swope mystery were revealed by
Mr. Paxton only after he had been
threatened with committment if he re
fused to answer the questions xiskcd
him by Frank P. Walsh, Dr. Hyde's
Mr. Paxton was giving his deposition
in a slander suit for $100,000 brought
against him" by Dr. Hyde.
Miss Swope is n niece of tho Jate
Colonel Thomas H. Swope. December 1
she was stricken with typhoid fever.
Dr. Ifyde cared for her.
"Poison was found in marked quan
tities in the contents of Miss Swope 's
stomach by Dr. Victor Vaughn," said
Mr. Paxton. ,
Attorney Walsh eagerly demanded of
tho witness: "Did anyone tell you of
any medicine that Dr. Hyde gave to
"T do not remember the exact
words," answered Mr. Paxton, "but
Miss Houlihan told me Dr. Hyde had
given her a capsulo to give to Chris
man Swope. She gave the capsule and
a few minutes later he went into con
vulsions. ' '
The story of the stormy sceno in Hio
Swope homestead on December IS.
when the nurses threatened to leave if
Dr. Hyde was not dismissed and aonth-.
cr physician obtained to care for the ill
members of the family, was told by
Mr. Paxton. He told of the value of
the suspicions of the nurses, which
eventually led up to an open break be
tween them and Mrs. Logan O. Swope.
It appeared that Miss Houlihan was
the leader of the insurrection. Just be
fore leaving she turned to Mrs. Swope;
according to Mr. Paxton, and said:
"People are being murdered in this
house. ' '
Tho departure of Dr. Hyde and his
wife from the home followed amid a
tearful scene. Accusations were mado
regarding the physician. His wife, in
the house of her mother, stood firmly
by him as she was turned away from
her parental doors.
"Who did you mean when you said in
that letter that the murderer of Colonel
Swope should be brought to justice?"
"I meant Dr. Hyde," said Mr. Pax
ton. of a 5,000 aero coal land subsidy from
a resolution passed by tho American
mining congress. He says tho Richard
son bill had the effect of making tho
government say: "The coal subsidy,
guaranty on construction and on exemp
tion of taxation, and all other aids to
railroad building in Alaska aro ex
hausted," after two roads built for pri
vat einterests to reach tho coal and cop
per mines had been constructed.
"I again assert, upon evidence,"
says Mr. Wickersham, "that in the
matter of railway commission and leg
islative council bills, Major Richardson
engaged in lobbying in the most offen
sive and dangerous ways In tho singlo
interest of tho Alaska Central and Cop
per River & Northwestern railroads,
and their promoters and owners."
CHICAGO, February 12. Tho possi
bility of a strike of 4,000 switchmen
