Chicago Jan Strychnine was found
throughout the viscera of the late Colon
Thomas H Swope the Kansas City mil
Inaire according to a report made by
Drs Walter S Haynes Ludwig Ilektoen
and Victor C Vaughn to John G Paxton
executor of the Swope estate here today
The same poison te also believed to have
been found in the liver of Chrfoman
Swope a nephew of Colonel Swope but
It was announced that the examination
of his organs had not been completed to
the satisfaction of the toxIcologist and
would be continued
Although Virgil Conkling the prosecut
ing attorney of Kansas City refused to
make any statement Mr Paxton said
that criminal prosecution would follow
their return home
Official Statement
The following statement was given out
by Mr Paxton after his conference with
the doctors
On account of the widespread interest
in the investigation that has been made
into the cause of the death of Thomas H
Swope I feel it proper for me to make
public the fact that Dr Ilektoen Dr
Haines and Dr Vaughn as the result of
their investigations 1 extending over a pe
riod of several weeks give to nie their
opinion that Mr Swope died from the ef
fects of poison
The Kansas City party returned home
tonight and will be present at tle inquest
tomorrow
Those present at the conference here
today besides Mr Paxton Mr Conkling fa
and the three doctors were Attorney Ia
James A Reed an associate of Mr Pax th

by the toxicologists was carefully consid
ered before the statement concerning the
tK tb4t t FiS f twa < <

nine was present tn various places in
Colonel Swopes organs
While no one would make a statement
that strychnine itself was administered CT
Paxton said that all were satisfied that 1
a drug containing strychnine In large
quantities had been given the dead man
Mr Paxton and Thomas Swope were
greatly agitated by the report Mi
Swope would make no statement concern
ing his suspicions or future plants but
Mr Paxton was emphatic in his predic an r
tions that criminal prosecution would fol vo

sac City When pressed to name the per da
