Special to 1%* Wshinston Herald.
New York. April .-District Attorney
Swann Is determined to take to court
at the ealiIiest date possible, which will
be May 1. probably, the case of Arthur
Warren Waite, indicted for poisoning
his father-in-law. John E. Peck.
Judge Swanu,,aj tpday that the evi.
dence against Dr. Waite is so complete,
even aside from Waite's own confession
of guilt, that no reason whatever exists
for dragging out preliminary inquiries.
The investigation turned today toward
an effort to locate $1.200 that appears to
be missing from the roll of bills dug up
on Friday on Long Island by Eugene
Oliver Kane. the embalmer to whom
Waite paid $9.000, he says. Kane and his
employer, John 8. Potter. were ques
tioned today In the district attorney's
office. Kane repeated his story that
he never counted the money. Potter de
nied all knowledge that money had
passed between Waite and Kane.
The $7.800 recovered from Kane's cache
was deposited in a safe deposit vault to
day in the name of Judge Swann. to be
used as evidence against Waite. Eventu
ally, it was said, the money will be re
stored to Miss Catherine Peck. from
whom Walte obtained it.
At Bellevue Hospital It was said that
Waite Is improving rapidly In physical
condition, and that he will be in shape
for arraignment Monday morning.

Shows Big Increase.

Declares Country is in Midst of Ab

That there has been a large Increase in
the demand for electrical supplies and
that the country is in the midst of what
has ' been termned an abnormal - building
development. is the opinion of E. C.
Graham, president of the National Elec
trical Supply Co., who returned yester
day from New York, where he partici
pated in a conference of electrical sup
ply jobbers of the Atlantic Coast States.
The conference was for the purpose of
getting first hand Information on the
business conditions prevailing in the sev

"The conference demonstrated that job

demand." said Mr. Graham. "enticipating
the prevailing high prices and looking to
the increased demand of spring trade.
Behind in Orders.
"investigation shows, however, that
factories are behind in their orders and
their output is insufficient to meet cur
rent demands. It is believed that any
surplus stocks in jobbers' hands are being
rapidly depleted and should the abnormal
conditions continue, the demand above
the capacity of the factories will crtate
a shortage of supplies within three or
four months' time.
"Authentic statistics were presented

"There is an increase of 638 per cent
in the orders for cars, and an increase of
66 per cent in orders for rails.
"The output of steel mills is sold up
to January 1, 1917, and in some cases for
the first quarter of 1917. Much work is
being delayed owing to the inability to
get certain iron and steel products. No
lower prices can be expected for many
months the general opinion being that
there will be much higher prices during
this year, owing to pressing needs in the

larger than ever before, has not reached
its possible maximum. However, before
copper can be used in the arts, it must
go through the refineries. The refining

day. The great consumers have bought

- fig Demand fer' Brass.
"It Is In brass products that the most'
difficulty is experienced in material.
Large quantities of brass are being used
in war munitions in factories within the'
United States, and larger amounts are
being shipped abroad at higher prices
than prevail in this country. All brass
mills are running at full capacity. It
is next to impossible to get anything like
prompt deliveries on standard shapes
and stock and no orders will be accepted
for special shapes.
"Domestic consumers are held down in
their allotments from the mills to within
a reasonable increase on their former
regular purchases, usually within 20 per
cent. With a demand for finished prod
ucts requiring brass stock. ranging from
33 1-3 per cent to 100 per cent above nor
mal.- and knowing the attitude of the
brass mills in holding down allotments
to about normal. it can be appreciated
that goods requiring brass will be hard
to procure in the near future.
"The electrical industry, being so close
ly allied to the general business activities
of the country, the electrical jobbers,
manufacturers, and contractors antici
pate a larger business for 1916 than the
industry has ever known."
