ed by Dr. Frederick 0. Tonney today.
The analysis showed that . the

ed death by a narrow margin. The
poison used was white oxide of
arsenic. 1'. Tonney says that his es
timate showed that 'the portion served
each guest contained 1 1-2 grains of
His calculations showed that the
entire kettle of soup contained 180
grains. This developmient was rega rd
ed as significant by detectives working

sistant chef at the club, an oinec bot
