The Doctors Complete Their

The physicians ongaged in the
post mortem examination of the re
mains of the late W. F. Wynes met
last night to receive the result of the
chemical examination, ami formulate j
an opinion as to the prohahlc
cause of tlealh. There were present

much time hal elapsed in making
the diagnosis is in i t self s:i llirieii t to

after discussing the case in all its
attending circumstances. Sinally
igrccd that death was due to natur
AiMar4iics of Arsenic.
Coroner Hawcs accordingly called
his jury together at 1 o'clock this
afternoon to hear the evidence of the
physicians. The chemical analysis
of the stomach revealed large quan
tities of arsenic, hut the physicians
had also lieforc them the evidence of
Undertaker Knox that an hour or so
after death a quart of emhalming
fluid, the chief ingredient of which
was arsenic, had lecn injected.
This emhalming lluid. the arsen
i properties of which t he doctors sat
istied themselves of after thorough an
alysis, permeates everv tissue of the
human system, so that in the face of
its having been used the chemical an
alysis proves ineffectual as throwing
anv light on t lie act ual can: e ot icai n.
Th'e injection of the arsenic in the
emhalming lluid is attended by the
same alsirpt ion by the entire body
as it tlie poison were auminiMcrcu in
In support of the theory that M
Wvnes' death was attributable to
natural causes, the physicians found
vidences of ilisorganizcd spleen and
liver, and in view ! the dir-eios
urcs as to the Use of embalming lluid
no other cause of death could be as
signed. Mr. Wynes last symptoms wore
such, it niav be said, as to indicati
the possibilities of the effects of ar
senic, but it should also ic stateii n
way of correction of an assertion
heretofore in:.dc that the request for
a post, mortem did not in any sense
emanate with the physicians, hut
with the brothers of the deceased
who made the affidavit with the cor
oner and upon the strength ot which
the physicians in the case were sum
moned purely as witnesses.
The result" of the coroner's inquest
has not vet been reached.

House Mover Kounds. who has left
a house standing in the street at
Fifth avenue and Twenty-third
street on its way to Twenty-lift h
street, has served notices on Mayor
Mcdill, Street SiiH rintendent Ward
and the street railway company that
he will hold them accountable for
damages to the extent of ? 14 per day
for every day the house stands there
until he is given permission to move
on. The assumption of Mr. Hounds
that he can collect damages on such
grounds is ridiculous. If ho could,
all he would have to do would bo to
move several houses into tho street
and then take in the World's Fair on
t he proceeds. However, the mayor
is not unreasonable ir arbitrary
with him. but simply demands that
he furnish suflicient bond to guard
the city against any pecuniary losses
that might arise. It is hoped that
arrangements will be made to move
it tonight, as the street cars will be
two hours later in starting tomorrow.

will be very pleasing to them. It is

Although there is no open talk
among switchmen as to the matter it
seems to be the general opinion
among railroad men that the recent
action of the Hock Island in discharg
ing sc cral of its employees on the
charge of drinking while on duty
will lead to trouble. One of the
switchmen discharged does not drink
at all and it is very probable that the
switchmen will ask his reinstate
