Grand Jury Begins Probe Into
Death Of Admiral Eaton
Widow In Jail Not AlarmedImpression Gone Abroad That
The Admiral Was Killed By White Powdered ArsenHr
Administered In Pure Form A Mistaken One, Accord
ing To The District Attorney, Who Discusses The
Boston, March 24. Interest In th
Admiral Eaton poison case now cen
ters in lie grand Jury proceedings
vhlch began at Plymouth today. A
treat man) neighbors or the Eaton
.amlly in Asslnlppl have been Bum
moned as 'well as Mrs. Eaton's two
daughters, June Ainsvyorth Keyes and
Dorothy Aluswortb, her mother, -Mrs.
George Harrison, and' various stato
and county qfllcialB who have worked
on the cane.
It Is expected that an indictment
-will Bpeeitily follow the presentation
of buci evidence as District Attorney
Barker sees Ht to present, There is
ITstronj llkellhood'.that the testimony
of certain witnesses will not be
heard by the grand Jury. The district
attorney Intimated us much when he
said that "It is not ulwus necessary
to present all the evidence to secure
an indictment." He admitted, how
ever, "thut u "good many" people
would' be called upon to tell their
stories of the family life of the Eatous
and also o relate any conversations
which Mrs. Eaton or the admiral may
have had with them.
When asked about the constantly
repeated tumors that Insanity pro
ceedings might be asked for by the
Eovernmont, Mr.r Barker refused to
discuss that phase of the case. He
pointed out that the impression has
Bono abroad 'that Admiral Eaton was
killed by White powdered ntseni'c ad
minlstcted In absolutely puro form.
"This," Mr. Darker declared, "Is a
mistaken Impression. Thero may have
been some other substance for It."
Continuing, he said that a certain
hind of tat poison might have been
administered, with the result that a
report of a chemical analysis would
merely give white powdered arsenic
as the cautv of death. He said that

GIVING DEEP STUDY
TO TARIFF REVISION
President May Uphold Those
Who Favor Moderate Guts.
Washington, March 21, President
Wilson is now giving deep study to
the tariff, with a view of communicat
ing views on the subject to the leaders
in congress. It is tho understanding
that the president will in the main
uphold thoso Democrats who are fa
voring a moderate revision' of tho
tariff as opposed to those who advo
cate sharp cuts in the rates In every
schedule of the law and ample ampli
fication of the free list. It is under
stood that a copy of the tentative
draft of the tariff bill prepared by
Chairman Underwood and his associ
ates will be placed in the bands of
the president this week.
It "has tecnme known that Presi
dent Wilson will in all probability
make some strong suggestions rela
tive to the agricultural schedules.
,Tho income tax feature of tho new
tariff law Is proving troublesome In
committed. The lines of division ou
this proposal are clearly marked. Ons
group in tbo committee is advocating
a graduated tax that will hit big in
comes hard. Another group insists on
a flat rate for all incomes the mini
mum to be $1,000.

State Addresses Negroes In Geor
Augusta, Ga, March 24. Ex-Presi-dent
Taft, Dr. Nicholas Butler, Dr.
David Gregg and othors addressed- a
large audience in the Tabernacle Bap
tist church. The tabernacle Is a negro
church, and Dr. C. T. Walker, the emi
nent negro minister, is its pastor.
The purpose of the meeting wa to
raise funds for an Institutional church
which Dr. Wnlker expects to build.
Quite a large sum was raised.
Mr. Taft gave the negroes a heart-to-heart
talk. He complimented them
upon the wonderful progress tbeyv
have made since the time that they'
were brought over from Africa inan
uncivilized state, and said while
everj one now condemns slavery, sllll
because of Mavery, as horrible as it
was, had not this been dono the negro
race could not have advanced as rap
Idly as It has.
Mr. Taft said he could understand,
how the people of tbe south felt when
It was proposed to free their slaves,
because slavery .was an established
intitutlon which was founded by
them in their state constitutions, and
he paid a splendid tribute to theno-
gro 'slaves who stajed u( home nnd
looked after tho welfare of their mas
ters' families while the war wa to,
"The white people of the south are
the itegro's real friends." said Mr.
Taft, "an wnlle we of the north can -aid
jou in every way that we can,
still tho people of the southland afe
your devoted friends and among
whom the majority of you live and
have jour being."
.Mr. Taft ridiculed the Idea of de
porting the negro to Africa or atiy
whero else.Nind said that he was
doing all right where he is. Discuss
ing happiness, Mr. Taft said that the
negro race is one of the happiest and
most cheerful of all races. He pre
dicted greater and greater economlo
progress for tho negro race.
