Actor Found to He From

NEW YORK April 1 Maurice Barry
more the actor who was taken to Belle
vue Hospital on was examined
today by Dr Wlldman and Dr Newton
and found to be In a maniacal stage
of paresis He has threatened to kill
Charles Frohman He will be sent to the
RIvcrcrest Asjlum at Astoria tomorrow
at the request of his daughter Ethel
According to Dr Newton Mr Barry
mores paresis Is of the variety that first
affects the spine and works gradual up
Into the brain
There are three forms of paresis said
Dr Newton tonight It sometimes be
gins In the brain and stays there some
times in the spine and works up and the
third varied goes both ways The pa
resis which originates In the spine is
gradual In the early stages of Its de
velopment That has been the case with
Two j ears ago his friends told me
that he could not walk straight and that
he was always bumping Into other per
sons on the stage I askfd him about it
and he complained that everybody was
bumping Into him I subjected him to all
the tests and found that he had locomo
tor ataxia He could not walk straight
and he could not stand still with his cjes
shut He was very emotional and cried
at question l7ut to him and he had
no memorj His disease was then In the
spine and In Its earliest stages
lie became much better after six weeks
of treatment and since then has scored
one of the greatest successes of his ca
reer as Rawdon Crawley in Vanity Talr
But his case now Is very serious Assum
ing that his trouble of two j ears ago was
the beginning of this paresis ho has only
a few months to live
I found from a thousand cases that a
man with paresis will live about
months Just when Tiarrjmore dies
will depend on when the epileptic convul
sions begin The convulsions will be fre
quent and be followed bj paralysis
The actor now has a flxd delusion that
he is being hounded by the theatrical sjn
dicate He holds Charles Frohman re
sponsible and has threatened to kill him
In the mans present condition such a
threat must be taken If ho was
at now he would try to cany out
the threat

Republicans The of Mr John

great surprise to many people of Cleve

elected him tonight is of course a
matter of conjecture
