MAN NEAR ARREST IN ALLEGED
Had the number of guests at the
Archbishop Mundelein dinner, Thurs
day night, not been suddenly increas
ed from 200 to 296, all who attended
might now be dead, according to the
Investigation of a score of samples
of the poisoned soup served at the
banquet have indicated shown that
the soup would have been 2 grains
per bowl strong in arsenic had it not
been diluted for 96 extra guests. As

The police say they will have Jean
Crones, suspected poisoner, before
the day is over.
The police believe he worked out
his plot scientifically, using all of his
knowledge of chemistry- They have
confiscated the poisons, nitroglycer
ine, and anarchistic and anti-Catholic
literature found in his room.
Hinton C. Clabaugh, division chief
of the federal bureau of investiga
tion, thinks the poisoning may have
been part of a nation-wide plot. He
does not think it reasonable to be
lieve that Crones could have operated
John AUegrini, 2408 Calumet av.,
chum of Crones, is held by the police.
Letters which Jean Crones, arch
bishop's dinner poison suspect, left
behind show he was pal of Gaetano
Bresci, anarchist who killed King
Humbert, Italy, in 1900, say police.
WANT AMMUNITION FURNISHED
Free ammunition for policemen is
provided for in a bill which will be
introduced in council tonight by Aid.
Dempsey. Policemen now buy their
own ammunition. So heavy is the
monthly ammunition bill sometimes,
on account of the weekly target prac
tice, that policemen often buy cheap
cartridges to save expense. These
cheap cartridges often fail them.
