are fixed at 100000 and his sureties are his
father Nicholas Van Blyok and Charles
Ucbrjro Postmoaler A noon I was au
thorltlalvely asserted that both oUbl wills now
on file will be contested
The theory that a bottle of pare whiskey was
ent to Mrs Barnaby In friendly spirit and
that It a tamperedwith In Denver Is over
thrown by the logic ol a nan who has carefully
investigated the cue lie said
If Ihetendarof that bottle ot whiskey to
Mrs Barnaby did not mean to polaofi her why
does not h turn up I bl Is I innocent I the
contents of tha bottle war pure orit the
whiskey was purchased for tho Renulne article
and was mailed In rood faith the sender must

there may be as Jo what occurred In Denver
there Isno doubt that the bottle

I Is evidently true to that the person who

address the mailing In lioxton and the
reference to tha woods and yoU will be
surprised torse I how the number of
persons who can b inspected will grow
beautliolly 18 and it Is one of those few who I
must have mailed or prompted tho mailing of
the letter and It Is one of them wbo It the
poisoning of the whiskey was accidental or
