CHARGED WITH MURDER Joseph P. Sylvia Declared to be Slayer of Emmett E. Wood. Joseph P. Sylvia was lodged in the District jail' last night formally charged wifh the murder of Em mett E.' Wood, soda fountain clerk, on September 18, in the basement of the Liggett drug store, in the West ory Building , northeast corner F and Fourteenth streets, Washington. At an inquest in the District morgue yesterday a coroner's jury decided Sylvia was the - perpetrator of the crime. 'The 'verdict was based on. strong circumstantial evi dence. Woodi the jury found, rcame to his death "by fractured skull, hemorr hage and shock, caused by being hit on the head by an iron pipe in the hands of Joseph Salvia." Eighteen witnesses were, present at the inquest, but ofnly seven Were heard, the jury frequently inter rupting the testimony to declare that enough evidence had been pre sented. The most startling fact brought out at the inquest was the an nouncement by Dr. W.. Browne Carr, deputy coroner, that Wood had been killed not more than thirty minutes after he was last seen in the store. This declaration was established by the fact that an autopsy, per formed on the boys body by Dr. Carr, and statements by employes ,at the drug stote, proved Wood had eaten lunch in the store just before leaving. The food he had eaten, the autopsy brought out, was in t/he first chamber of the stomach from which it would have been expelled after thirty minutes. Wood was seen leaving the store at 12:20 o'clock on the afternoon of the murder. Sylvia, Who is a Port uguese, and Wood were seen in the basement shortly ' before 12:50 o'clock. At that time, detectives daim, Sylvia was threatening Wood vitih his clenched fist. 'Wood was never seen alive after that time, and, according to Carr, must have met his death shortly after the last witness had left the basement, which, so far as .is known, was occu pied only by the two men.
