Berkeley Cal Feb 9 If the as
tropomerw are right in their estima
tions of the amount of cyanogen gas in
he tail of Hallcys comet and if that
bodys vapors do envelop the earth
we may have a chance to feel the sen
sations of the bugs and iiibocts which
are killed by the use of this deadly
gas as an exterminator
Sich is tho cheerful opinion ex
pressed yesterday by Prof Edwin
Booth of tho department of chcmla
try at the University of California
and a well known expert on spectrum
IIIUIyIH
Well all bo snuffed out he said
ii a sufficient quantity of this cyano
gen gas unites with the hydrogen of
this planets atmosphere
Their union he continued would
I form the deadly gas known as hydro
nlc acid the most deadly poison
known to science and which means
death for all animals
Prof Burckhalter of the Chabot ob
servatory Oakland maintains on tho
other hand that there is very little
gas In the comets tall and that the

were thrown out today and will bo
available for homestead settlement oy
the action of President Taft when ho
approves the plans for tho reclasshl
cation of forest lands which were for

It has been found that millions of
acres of land which were tillable were
being hold back unintentionally in the

so included
The plans of tho elimination of
those lands were formed by Mr Pin

The elimination Is not yet complete
and threetenths of the total public

It is impossible to estimate how
much more land will bo available for

Coroners Jury After An Hours Deliberations 1
Decide That Strychnine Was Administered
in the Capsule Left by the Doctor
i
Kansas City Fob 9Col Swopc
came to his death by reason of strych
nine administered in a capsulo by Dr
B C Hyde but whether by felonious
iutcnt or not wo tho jury are unable
to say
This verdict was rendered at 1
oclock this afternoon by the coron
ers Jury at Independence after being
out one hour I
It lacked just a fow minutes of be
Ing an hour after tho end of the in
quest when it was announced that tho
jury was ready to report After the
six jurors had taken their seats Cor
oner 7wart asked I
Gentlemen have you arrived at a
verdict 1 I
We have replied Samuel H
Woodson tho foreman who thereupon
road the document i
Wo the coroners jury ho read I
summoned urgently to inquire by
what means Thomas H Swope came
to his death from the evidence ad I
duced before us and from our knowl
edge that said deceased came to his
death by strychnine poisoning and
we believe said strychnine poison was
administered in a capsule at 830
i clock a in on tho day ho died by
the direction of Dr B C Hyde wheth
ei with felonious intent we tho jury
I are unable to decide
The leading of the verdict caused
Dr Ilydo involuntarily to start for
ward in his chair
Turning to John M Cloary one of
his attorneys Dr Hyde asked
What docs that mean 7
Mr Cleary explained that the jury
was unable to determine from the
e presented whether there was
cny intent to kill or noL
Dr Hyde nodded
I see ho said That was all the
comment he made
Dr Hyde and hit attorneys POOH
wore walkfhfTdown tho street on their
way to luncheon A crowd of sovoral
hundred persons followed talking of
the case and predicting what the fu
ture steps might be
After the verdict Prosecutor Conk
ling said he had nothing to say at
this time as to the course of his office
I Kansas City Feb IIn to the super
lative of Intensity went the Swope In
I ucts today into the darkness of con II
jecture and mystery was again car
ried the death of Col Thomas Swope
For Dr B C Hyde physician to Col
Swope on tho day he died prescrlbor
of a digestive capsule which preceded
death only a short while refused to
testify to the coroners jury and re
used even to be sworn
The scone lasted only a few mom
ents In that time more excitement
I
occurred than for two days
It was a apace of limo in which
pulses beat with excitement and in
which the eyes of jurymen spectators
witnesses and even tho stenograph
ers forgot everything else except to
direct their attention to the figures
which may determine an arrest In
the case of the death of Cal Swope
Frank P Walsh Hydes attorney Dr
B F Zwarl county coroner Virgil
Could lit g prosecuting attorney of
Jackson county and Dr Hyde I
Tho morning session barely had begun I
I
gun when Dr Zwart looked at a piece
I of paper upon which he carried the
list ot witnesses His lips were Just
beginning to frame the namo of Dr
Hyde when Attorney Walsh arose and
bent over the table
The court room became suddenly
qulotThe
The attorneys for Dr Hyde have
advised him not to testify Mr
Walsh said wo dont caro for him
to testify here and therefore at our
suggestion he must decline to bo
sworn
I Another man was standing close l
at this limo and In his hand there
was a copy of a newspaper the pages
of which were being rapidly turned lo
n certain place The man was Virgil
Conkllng prosecuting attorney He
too spoko his words slowly with pre
cision and almost coolness
I have here a copy of a newspaper
of Fob 1 ho begun It contains a
signed statement by Dr HC Hyde
nod In the light of his refusal to tes
tify I desire to I
There was an interruption from Mr
Walsh and this time the slowness of
the speech of the attorney was gone
If this is done for the purpose of
publication he almost shouted I
Dr Zwart was on his feet and be
tween the two men and for a moment
ho and Mr Conkllng conversed In a
whisper
I must Insist upon it Dr Zwart
said to Mr Conkling and just what
the conversation was about tho audi
enco did not know Soon there came
the explanation
Certainly Ill see yju privately
Mr Conkllng said and together they
loft the room
When the coroner and the Jlrotlo l t
in attorney returned Dr Zwart Bald
I still hold that tho coronor has
the right to examine witnesses and
that Dr Hyde was subpoenaed Intho
regular way and is therefore entitled I
lo testify
I stated before that on tho advice j
of counsel Dr Hydo refuses tobo I
sworn to testify promptly replied I
Attorney Walsh and since that
There had come another interrup I
tion by Prosecuting Attorney Conk
ling
The prosecutor asks that the name
rule apply ns with all witnesses ha I
said vehemently q
Wo retusc to allow the witness lc
testify Insisted Walsh
The coroner insists Dr Zwarl
answered hastily
Counsel refuses to allow tho wit
ness to testify
Dr Zwart sat down Then Virgil
Conkllng still with tho now = paLI r
copy of Dr Hydes statement In hit
hand the statement in which Dr I
Hyde said that ho was ready and
willing to testify at any inquiry that
ho was eager for an investigation and
anxious that the mystery of Cot
Swopes death bo cleared up looked
at Dr Hyde at the attorneys and at
the spectators His voice became
hard
i Then he said that is sufficient
for tho purpose of tho prosecutor
I This ended the incident and Dr W
Gayle a Kansas City physician wnf
called lo give export testimony on tin
i affects of strychnine upon the human
system and tho symptoms accom
I panylng poison by that method
During a short recess Mr Walsh
ittornoy for Dr Hyde said he had no
f statement to make regarding hid Tea
son for refusing to allow Dr Hyde
to testify
I made a statement In the court
room he said and that Is suffici
ent for the present I may have 1
statement to make later but not now
Later Frank P Walsh made the fol
lowing statement
The evidence in tho investigation
by tho state before the coroners jury
as to the death of Col Swopo was not
such as to Impress counsel for Dr
Hyde with tho belief that imthlng of
a substantial nature has been shown
tending to discredit his statement
heretofore made that he is neither
