STAMFORD, Conn.. July 28. Mr
Helen M. Angle, whose aged frtend,
Waldo H, Hallou, wnn found dying on
the steps In front of her apartment
late on the night ot June 28, was to
day held responsible for his death by
Coroner J. J. Phelan of Fairfield
County. The Coroner has had before
him for nearly three weeka the evi
dence taken at the sertral sessions of
the inquest over the body of Mr.
Ballou, who was a city Councilman,
Republican district leader and a realty
holder and business man of substance.
The Coroner, after briefly review
ing the contradictory evidence at tbw
hearings, announced that the etaU
monU made by Mra. Angle to. Chief of
Pollco William Drennan on the night
of Mr. Ballou'a death and on the days
aucceodlng aro in thcmselvca enough
to cause him to hold her for the Grand
Jury.
Coroner Phelan names the follow
ing determining points In further ex
planation: The failure of Mra. Angle through
advice of oounsel to explain why she
did not attempt to aid Mr. Ballou
when she found him dying on her
stairway) her failure to oall for help
on the etreet or by telephone) the
presence of Mr. Bsllou's dented and
blood-stained hat and her stained
waist in a cedar chest In her apart
menti her effort to hide Mr. Ballou'a
atalned spectacles and to clean all
stains on the stairway leading to her
doer.
Tho verdict concludes: '
"J do not feel Justified, In view of
her extraordinary, If not cruel, con
duct In assuming the ubsence of
j criminality in Mrs. Angle, while rec-
uk"'iiik uiu iiuflniuiiiijr ul uio acci

Innocence. I am Aatisfled the circum
stances surrounding auch death beara
such unusual earmarks of crtmo as to
warrant full Inquiry by the criminal
authorities. I therefore find that
Waldo H. Ballou came to his death as
the result of the criminal act of Helen
M. Angle,"
No attempt will be made to arraign
Mrs. Angle before Heptember, if she
Is arraigned then. Hho will remain at
liberty on ball of 16,000 until tho State

Bwept by the panlo of ceneral Euro
pean war, the Htnck Rxchan,;es ot the
world to-day were the scenes of ox
cltement In' trading and demoralisation
In prices. To prevent ruinous tosses,
a number of Continental and Canadian
exchangee were cloeed, whllo those
that remained open oxptrlanced heavy
decline In prices of many standard
securities.
The New York Stock Exchange
stood tk ajtreas batter than any of
the others, but here there was aj
break tn prloas greater than any
known since the indde'n financial panic
days of 1H07. It waa noticeable that
the standard Investment stocks, those
supposed to be etrongeat and aafeat,
suffered the largest losses, while tn
many esses tho tnoro iipeculattvo Is
sues weathered tho atorni better.
Tho reason for this was apparent.
Tho selling of securities started from
abroad, where Investors and rulers
of tho money maricet were com
pelled to unload their holdings In
tho American markets to protect
their Interests at home.
For this reason the premier inter
national security, Tanadlan Pacific,
suffered tho greatest fall, and so
great was Its slump that the authori
ties closed tho Montreal and Toronto
stock exchanges to stave off panic.
A month ago Canadian Pacific atook
was selling at more than 1200 per
share.
It has had a decline since then,
due principally to foreign financial
conditions, until at the opening of
the Stock Exchange this morning Its
first sole was at 1176. Within a few
minutes the storm burst around the
Canadian post and its price was
forced down to $167.23, the lowest
figure of many years.
While railways of the United States
have no direct part In the war scara,
the pressure of foreign selling, aided
by the gleeful raids of professional
American bears, hit some of the best
securities for losses of from three to
five points per share. Adding to the
derlinee of the poet two dnys. there
were total losses of ten points In
some of them.
Union Pacific opened at 12-SVi and
fell to 118H. United States st-el
opened at 58H and fell to BBH. Rnd
Ing dropped away from 159 to
16I1H. New York Central kept it com
pany In a slide from 84 to I0K, Atchi
son lost 4H points, touching 91, while
Qrcat Northern dropped from 120 to
116H, and B. and O. from T7 to 7244.
After several hours of tumultuous
selling and buying, prices recovered
about half their decline, excepting In
the case of Canadian Paclflo whtoh
closed at HIM. The trading was so
fast that the ticker could not keep up
with the market for the first time tn
several years. The total number of
shares sold during the session was
1,037,000, the first million share day
in a long while to delight broken,
The decline ot prices was started
by announcement that war had been
declared by Austria en Ssrvla, but
the big slump was caused by the tin
true report that Russia had declared
war on Austria, When this rumor
was contradicted there was an easing
up of the panicky feeling, The lowest
hour ot the day was 1 o'elook,
In marked contrast with the fall ot
stocks the prloas of wheat and corn
rose rapidly, because traders figured
that war In Kurope would produce
increased demand for American food
