DEATH OF CAE OWNER !
' TRACED TO MONOXIDE - Antonios Panopoulos Asphyx iated by Poison Fumes From Gas Water Heater. Antonio* Panopoulos, a Greek, was f>>und dead from the effects of asphyx iation this morning: In a room over the lunchroom conducted by him and his partner, Theodore Cheakalos. at 3318 M street. Carbon monoxide, generated by a gas water heater, is blamed for the tragedy. Panopoulos retired last night eailier than usual, complaining he was not feeling well. Shortly after 1:30 o'clock this morning his cousin went to the room and found him dead. It is thought Panopoulos wa? in need of hot water and lighted the gas, and that while waiting for the water, he was overcome by the deadly fumes. Cheakalos applied home remedies to restore his cousin to consciousness, but without result. Cheakalos then called a policeman and had him summon the patrol wagon. Physician Summoned. Satisfied that Panopoulos was dead, but wanting a physician to pass upon the question, the police hurried the body, to "the Georgetown University Hospital. Physicians there pronounced life extinct. Coroner Nevitt visited the M street house this morning, and made an exam ination of the premises, later seeing the lw?dy in the hospital morgue. The condi tion of the body, the coroner afterward stated, made it conclusive that carbon monoxide poisoning had caused death The coroner ascertained that tjje small room in which Panopoulos died was closed last night, and was without ven tilation other than what air entered through crevices about the window. There was no ventilating pipe running from the room to the roof or street. "And even If there had been such a ventilator." stated Coroner Nevitt. "I rioubt if it would have been a protection t > life against the carbon monoxide ga> poisoning. Wind frequently blows into the house through the chimney or ventila tor. but it is reasonable to Oppose that ,-uch a ifind would only carry the fumes :i bout the room. Inquest Not Necessary. Coroi#r Nevitt found the pipes of the water heater covered with soot. The question of holding an inquest was ? lisoussed and# quickly disposed of, the coroner concluding that nothing could be gained by such an Investigation. There was a federal inquiry Into the carbon monoxide gits question at the time three members of the Bremerman family were asphyxiated, the coroner recalled, and at that time the jury made an exhaustive recommendation. A certificate of death from gas poison was given in the case of Panopoulos. Relatives of the dead man had an under taker prepare his body for burial. Ar rangements for the funeral have not been completed. MS. MS ESTATE ESTIMATED AT 113,386 Late Justice of Supreme Court Leaves No Will?Son Is Administrator.

HEARST PICKS CLARK El HEAD OF TICKET Editorial in New York Ameri can Praises Leadership of Democratic Speaker. democrats at the Capitol were very much interested today in William R. Hearst's open indorsement of Champ <'lark for the presidential nomination. Air. Hearst lias himself been considered as one of the possible "dark horses" In the race, and his espousal of the cause of Speaker ('lark is regarded as all the more significant. , In today* s issue of the New York American Mr. Hearst publishes in edi torial which, after praising Mr. Clark's leadership of the democratic minority in Congress, resulting in that tnlnoHty be ing transformed into a majority, con tinues: "A presidential election is coming on. The democrats will have to nominate a ? audidate, and they want, first, a candi date who-will be able to v.-in at the polls and be elected President: and. secondly, a man who after he is el?H-ted President will make so creditable an administration ihat the i>arty can remain,in power, and not do those unbalanced things which will bring dis.-redit on the administration and ie?ul( in ill* defeat of the iwrty. Deserving of Consideration. "Without reflecting in any way on the many able candidates that are being dis cussed and considered for nomination for the presidency by the democrats, the American feels that no man better de serves to be discussed and considered than the man who has proved his ability and proved his judgment and proved his capacity for guiding the national demo cratic party to success. ?/Who would make a better candidate tiMSfi the man who transformed a demo cratic minority in Congress Into a demo 4 emtio majority?

And John Jay McDevitt's De ? v sire for Millionaire's Life Is Appeased. W1L.KBSBARRB. January 15.?With his pockets shrunk by emptiness. John Jay McDevitt save up his play as a million* aire when he stepped from a Pullman sleeper here at 8 o'clock yesterday morn ing:. When he awoke he discovered there remained in his clothes $1-53. This he counted carefully and. after making a strict search of his pocketbooks to be convinced that no more remained, he ordered a colored porter to seize his grips and help him from the train. As he step ped to the ground he handed the porter $1.50 and the three remaining pennies lie chucked to a newsboy. He was then dead broke, without the price of breakfast, but possessing a very strong appetite Nervy to the Last. John Jay had not parted with his nerve and this he carried with him to the nearest beanery. Taking his seat on a stool at the liash house, he yelled "One thousand," which in the vernacular of j lunchrooms here is the signal for a plate of beans. Coffee was ordered and with a slice or two of bread he started in to ap- I pease the pangs of hunger. When the meal was over McDevitt grabbed his satchels and started away. As he neared the door the man in a white apron gently but forcefully asked: "McDevitt, haven't you forgotten some- I thing?" ! "That's all right," said John Jay; "if I have I will call for it again." j With his bundle of nerve still with him "Butch" started across the way to the Hotel Reddington, where a crowd of his friends had assembled. He fell into one of the upholstered chairs, uncorked a smile and for several minutes was busy relating his experience as a "one-day millionaire." I "I'm dead broke," he said. "Little old New York got everything I had. They gave me one grand run for my money and showed me how easy it is to part company with the coin. While the kale lasted I was as gay as any old bird who floated in New York with a million at his back. j Dollar in Fun for Every Penny. "For every penny I spent I got $1 worth of fun. That bunch down in the city of the Great White Way slipped nothing over on me. I was a millionaire for a day, and not a cheap one. I paid for everything I got at better prices than most millionaires do. I was game to the I finish. "I am now back in my natural state? hungry, <broke, but happy. I couldn't I buy a toothpick if some one wedged ham I in my teeth. I am broke from cellar to | garret?cleaned up like they usually] clean them in New York. But. lay down a bet that no money king has a thing on me in the way of happiness. "I wouldn't be a millionaire if they paid me for it. It's the old beanhouse I ar.d the same old circles for yours truly. I got what I wanted and I am satisfied." I McDevitt has no plans for the future. He will spend a day or so "hitting the hay" any place with the space to let, and when he gets slept out, which prob ably will be the end of the week, he may start for Waymart. a familiar haunt, where he will begin work on another issue I of his "Scrap Book." I WYLLYS GAINES MISSING; POLICE WITHOUT TRACE Friends of Former Washington Han Express Fear He Is Hen tally Unbalanced. HTLLY8 GAINES. A careful search is being made hore, in New York and other cities today for Wyllys Gaines, a former resident of Washington, but lately of New York, from which city he disappeared last Wednesday. Mr. Gaines, who is forty-one years old, is a graduate of the Central High School. He once was a clerk for a term in the Arlington Hotel here, leav ing that position in 1899 to go to New York for duty at the Gotham Hotel. About two weeks ago he and a friend named Benedict started in business, opening a cafe under the Metropolitan Opera House, at 40th street and Broad way, New York. The business, it is claimed, was a larger undertaking than either had estimated. It Is thought by relatives and friends here tha% finan cial reverses unbalanced his mind. Seasons for Suspecting Insanity. He was last seen and recog lized about noon Wednesday by C. A. Hatch, uiauagor of the Grand Uqtion Hotel, New York city. He left memoranda with Mr. Hatch similar to that he sent to his attorney, Horace A. Dodge of this city, which in its nature strength ens his family's belief that he was mentally deranged. Mr. Gaines was unmarried, but contrib uted partly to the support of bis mother, Mrs. Anna K. Gaines, and a widowed sister, Mrs. ' Klma Woolworth of New York. The family heard regularly from him until just before Christmas, when he was busy with arrangements for open ing his cafe. His relatives did not feel worried about hhy until they learned indirectly a few days ago of his disap pearance. When seen by his mother fast October Mr. Gaines appeared to be in excellent spirits, it is said. Futile Search by Police. The police of New York have searched ti?e hospitals and hotels with no success. He had no extra clothing with hit" when he disappeared, and but little money, and the only article of jewelry be Is thought to have had was his watch. Mr. Gaines is described as having dark eyes and dark hair and a stubby mus tache. He is about five feet ten inches in height, and of rather heavy build, weighing about 170 pounds. He is said to be a neat dresser, generally wearing a derby hat.

AUSTRIAN BARON SEES WAR AHEAD WITH ITALY Declares Hostilities Will Begin When Italian Conquest of Tripoli Is Ended. VIENNA, AuBtria, January -lSj?Consid erable sensation has been caused in po litical circles here by some recent speech es delivered toy Baron Fuchs, the clerical leader, who declared that Italy is arming against Austria, and when the war In Tripoli is over the King of Italy must either fight Austria or go into exile. , Baron Fuchs also Insisted tliat the Inti mate relations which have for so long ex isted between Austria and Germany are becoming weaker as the result of Aus tria's failure to support her ally during the Moroccan crisis. He likewise com plained that Austria's relations with the Russian empire had not been well han dled. Demands an Explanation. Baron Fuchs is said to have demanded an explanation from the Austrian foreign minister. Count Alois Lexa von Aehren thal, of the sad differences between Aus tria and .Germany, of which he said he possessed accurate knowledge; but the foreign minister maintained absolute si lence on the subject Baron Fuchs there fore considered that he was perfectly justified in expressing publicly his dis satisfaction with Count von Aehrenthal's foreign policy. x Wasted.

Added impetus was given the light fol lower street car steps at the meeting of the Current Topics Club this morning at Rauscher's. Five hundred women, aroused by the appeals of Miss Janet Richards and Miss Elizabetli Brown, leaders in the fight be ing waged by a committee of. women against the street car companies for bet ter street car accommodations, signed the committee's petition today asking for the abolition of the high step. * Miss Brown, chairman of the com mittee, has issued an appeal to all per sons who have been injured on account of difficulties met with in the high step on the local street cars, that they com municate with her at her home, 1857 Euclid street northwest. Numerous com munications have already been received by the committee from injured persons, and it is their purpose to organize them In order that their demands may be made more effective. Steps Main Issue. Miss Richards, who was the principal speaker before the large body of club women who gathered to hear the argu ments favoring the abolition of the high step, pointed out to them that while the committee is waging war upon other de fects of the car service, it is concentrat ing its efforts upon the one main issue to get the companies to put lower steps on their cars. Crowded conditions of cars, the side seats which make it Impossible for per sons standing1 in the middle of the isle to hold on to straps and other faults which the women find with the car service were brought up for discussion. Miss Richards announced that she re ceived yesterday a letter from a woman in Bridgeport, Conn., reporting that a similar movement had proved successful there. She urged the women not to give up the fight and to act each as a "com mittee of one" and get some friend to sign the petition to the street car com panies. Meeting of Committee. There will be a meeting of the com-' mittee tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock at the residence of .Miss Brown, to dis cuss ways and means for pushing the campaign. Miss Brown announced that all persons ihterested in the movement are Invited to atteM the meeting. Since the committee was formed nu merous names have been added, the lat est persons to join 'being Mrs. Elisabeth Kingman Kearn and Mrs. Susie Root Rhodes, both of the League -of American Pen Women, and Mrs. James Ord of Chevy Chase. Several thousand names have been signed to the petitions and the committee is prepared even better than before to undertake the crusade The movement to enlist the sympathies of the "short, fat man" have proved a success, and already many men have signed their names to the petition.
