Kansas City, Mo.. April 19. The
defense ,of Dr. B. C. Hyde, charged
with tho murder of Colonel Thomas
H. Swope, had its Inning today
Attorney Frank P. Walsh for the
defenso began his opening argument
with the contention that cyanide of
potassium had been Injected into
tho body of Colonel Swopo while it
lay in a cemetery vault.
Ho declared that tho tomb of tho
millionaire philanthropist had been
desecrated, tho casket ripped open
and the body tampered with.
. "Tho body of Colonel Swopo was
left In such a state by those who
rifled the vault, that it froze. Wo
intend to show that Interested per
sons had put poison in Colonol
Swope's vein either at the vault,
the catacomb, or tho morgue," said
The death of Dr. Twyman adds
another namo to tho list of those
connected with tho Swopo" family
who have suffered illness and died.
Dr. Twyman was long the family
physician of tho Swopes. Ho was
expected by the state to testify that
ho had found Miss Margaret Swope
near death from cyanide poisoning
and that soon afterward he found
that drug in a box handled by Dr.
Dr. Twyman also had been relied
upon to establish tho state's accusa
tion that Dr. Hyde's medical prac
tlco was Irregular. Also ho had
beon expected to testify concerning
tho death of Colonol Moss Hunton,
ono tlmo executor of the Swope es
tate. Tho death of Dr. Twyman has re
moved the state's most important
witness and Is a blow to the proso
.cutlon of tho defendant.
Tho belief among attorneys hero
is that the Chicago toxoliglsts, Dr.
Haines and Kektoen have discred
ited themselves by representations in
conflict with the facts as developed
The defenso claims that Colonel
Swope partook of alcoholic drinks
for 25 years, causing his liver to
become c'rrhotic If Colonel Swopo
died of strychnine poisoning, they

it had accumulated sufficiently to

Referring to the prosecut on s al
legation that Hyde inooula.ed tho
Swopo family with typhoid germs in
order to make easier their deaths by
poison, Walsh said:
"Dr. Hyde used diphtheria and
typhoid bacilli culture tubes for
When discussing the bleeding of
Colonol Hunton by Dr. Hyde, who
according to the state, let two quarts
of blod from tho patient, thereby
causing h's death, Walsh said:
"Dr. Hyde used his be -t judgment
in bleeding Colonol Hunton."
. in thf course of h i opening
statement. Walsh said that Dr.
Hydo would w up on the witness
stand. Walsh explained tho pres
ence of cyanide n Hyde's office by
saying that Is was used to kill cock
roaches. Tho attorney assorted that Dr.
Twyman hnd solo charge of tho
bleding of Colonel Hunton. He,
branded ovory allegation, of tho
prosecution as false and said:
"These statements are based upon
tho testimony of paid detectives and
springs from malice and envy."

to the Sword.
Aden, April 19. Now that Eng
lish troops havo evacuated tho In
terior of British Somaliland, tho
Mad Mullah Is making as rapid a
clean up as possible of all the
tribesmen who were friendly, during
tho British occupation of the Hin
terland, to European rule.
His massacre early in April of
S00 "friendlies" of the Delbahanta
trlbo was only .tho beginning of thn
Mullah's campaign. He has formal
ly announced that ho is on tho war
path to stay. The tribesmen who
formerly believed themselves under
British protection number about
100,000. Tho Mullah has not men
enough to dispose of them all at
once, but ever since the initial at
tack on the Delbnhantas, ho and his
ravlshers have been slaughtering
and plundering tho other tribesmen
Reports from the interior Indicate
that the tribes far removed from tho
coast are trying to make terms with
the Mullah by accepting his rule and
joining his force. Those nearer tho
sea are gathering about tho ports of
Berbera and Zeilabuzella, which tho
English retain, though their garri
sons aro Insufficient to protect the
"friendlies." It Is beginning to bi
a question, Indeed, whether It will
be possible to hold even Berbera and
Zella when tho Mullah gets tho in
terior again fully under his control.
Although a few arms were distrib
uted by tho British among the
"friendlies" when It wasdecided to
abandon the latter to their fate, tho
tribesmen aro leaderless, disunited
and also practically without ammu
nition, so that they aro unable to put
up an effective defense.
Having disposed of tho "friend
lies" it is a foregono conclusion that
tho Mullah will turn his attention to
the expulsion of tho British from
Berbera and Zelln, and of King Vic
tor Emanuel's forces from Italian
Somaliland, and to tho extension of
his borders across tho Abyssinian
frontier. Tho general opinion hero
