I Having Been Admin
I istered by Dr Hyde to
Margaret Swope
t Kansas City April 21The Insist
IUCJ of Dr Hyde that Miss Pearl
Keller a nurse complete at one time
all her testimony for the state caused
Judge Lntschaw today to permit the
j witness to go Into tho details of tho
f typhoid epidemic in the Swope home
In passing on the matter yesterday
the court decided he would hear no
testimony on this phase of the case
i until Its relevancy to the death of
u Colonel Swope was shown Rather
than deprive the state of the testi
mony of Alias Keller however said
tho court She might testify regarding
the epidemic at this limo If relevan
cy IH not established then tho testis
mono will be stricken out But tho
jury has heard all her evidence
Most startling of all the features of
Miss Kellers story was her assertion
that tho convulsion suffcrtid by Mar
garet Swope on December IS was
similar to the attack that preceded
Col Swopes death The state charges
that on this day Dr Hyde polsonc >
Margaret Swope
Just before tho noon adjournment

In the testimony of tho witness and
leaned forward several times to
coach her husbands attorneys

would begin to crossexamino Alias

Gruesome Evidence of
the Murder of Ruth
Now York April 1It was prom
ised whon the trial of Albert Wolter
for attacking Ruth Wheeler and
strangling and burning her to death
was resumed today that the prosccu
tion would complete its case tomor
row by the latest
Welters dofonse could then hardly
bo put In before adjournment over to
next week and the probability Is
that the cose cannot bo finished be
fore next Tuesday But even in that
case the trial would go on record as
tho speediest of any notable criminal
hearing In New York In many years
Almost the entire gamut of sensa
tion was run at yesterdays session
Before the court opened today Ju
ror William Campbell No 5 In tho
Juiy box reported he had received
several anonymous letters but did
not reveal tholr nature
Wolter greeted his lawyers with a
smile and began at once to pay close
attention to the proceedings
The entrance Into the fiat house
the morning of tho crime of a girl
answering Ruth Wheelers descrip
tion was testified to by Airs Ohl the
wife of the Janitor Tho girl had a
card In her hand and she carried aa
umbrella and after pushing the but
ton which rang the bell In Woltors
apartment went upstairs She did not
see the girl como out again
Aftltr clinching the Identification
by a number of exhibits made In the
case the prosecution produced some
now onos which it called Coroner
Holhelmer to identify the most of
which consisted of parts of the fire
jjlaco and marble hearth In Welters
room The face of the marble showed
black smears which tho coronors
jury declared had been made with
paint The hearth was turned over
and on tho other side the court room
audience saw heavy red stains which
seemed to have been caused by perco I
lation through the pores of the
hearth Coroner Holzhcimer said tho I
stains were blood

latter an extreme half point
There wero rallies from the low

Tho higher prices Induced moro Bell
Ing but the list was again supported
when Reading began to rise and the
trend was upward at 11 oclock The
less active Blocks wore weak
Covering operations by bears who
sold stocks short yesterday was a
feature of the morning Tho effect
was to losnon the offerings to sell
which the declining tendency of

Not a Miner Escaped
From the Mulga
Birmingham La April 21Not one
of tho fortyone men imprisoned last
night in Alulga mine of the Birming
ham Iron Coal company is alive
This word was brought to the bur
face early today to the walling fam
ilies of the victims
When rendered uYiconsclous from
the deadly gases of the shaft Super
Inlondcnt Johns of the mine and a
non named Bonds who risked his
llfo In tho rescue work were drawn
up to fresh air
The condition of the rescuers told
the story long before tho men had
been revived The valchors believ
ed that if tho rescuers holmoted and
protected had so najrowly escaped
death there was no hope for the work
ers who without wajnlng had been
entombed by an explosion of gas
Whon Johns and Bonds finally re
gained consciousness thor confirmed
the gravest anticipations of the peo
ple who for hours had waited at the
mouth of the shaft to hear a word of
their loved ones
Dead all dead were the words of
the superintendent as ho began to re
cover from tho effects of the poison
ous gases Before they had lost con
sciousness the rescuers wd reached
the first gallery
When It was learned that it was im
possible to gain entrance to the mine
through tho slip Jt because the cages
woro sprungJtr the passage the entrance
trance was Bellied ifrovent If possible
sible the spread oftue fire
The only list of the names of tho
miners at work at the time of the ox
plosion was held by tho foreman of
the gang at work who Is among the
entombed It Is believed however
there are about fifteen whlto men and
twenty to twentyfive negroes
The mine has been in operation
about two years
Tho shaft is 350 feet deep and the
fact that flames shot to i height of
100 feet leads to the belief that tho
explosion occurred near the bottom
of the main shaft

train robbers serving life sentence
escaped from the federal prison here
early today Within a short time two
of tho men were recaptured At 11
oclock tho throe others were sur
rounded in tho brush within a short
distance of the prison and It was be
lieved all would bo taken
The Ilrst report indicated that the
two life mon who sot away had forc
ibly taken possession of a switch en
gine that had been run Into the pris
on yards and pulled out at high speed
Once clear of tho prison yards tho
convicts deserted the engine and made
u dash for tho woods
The men recaptured were Bob Clark
s nt up from Tyler Tex and John
Gideon of Moscow Idaho
The three others were Thomas A
Katlng sent up from Allen Okln
Arthur Hewitt from Caddo Okla and
Frank Gregware one of the men who
hold up a Union Pacific mail train
near Omaha last fall
The break for liberty was mado ut
about S oclock Two of the convicts
were at work In the carpenter shop
and tho others were in the tailor shop
A Union Pacific switch engine had
backed Into the prison yard At tho
sound of tho whistle the men dash
ed Into the ynrd and made toward
tho engine Levelling dummy guns at
tho engineer the men climbed Into
the cab and compelled him to roverso
his engine
The engine with the convicts
aboard rushed through tho west gate
Into tho open country and soon was
speeding toward the woods
When tho escape became known a
few moments later the siren whistle
at the prison was sounded as a warn
ing to farmers to bo on the lookout I
The whistle may bo heard for miles
and its use caused consternation
At the time heavy guardn wqrp
thrown around the gates to prevent
any further attempt at escape while
others started In pursuit
When tho engine reached a point
half a mile from tho prison the five
men leaped to the ground and made
for the woods Clark and Gideon
separated from the others and soon
wore captured
Then every available guard led by
Deputy Warden Lemon started after
the other three A half mile further
on the trio were surrounded In tho
woods No shot had been fired on
either side up to 11 oclock when the
guards began to close In on tho con
victs Although the convicts arc all
desperate men it was believed their
only weapons were guns made of
wood and painted In the carpenter
Fake weapons taken from Clark
and Gideon had been ingeniously
made Even the cylinders showed
imitation bullets protruding
When the men made their dash for
I liberty they covered Harry Reed a
I guard with their guns and forced
him to enter the engine cab with
I them But one other guard named
Burnett was In the vicinity He rush
ed up and struck Kutlng over the
head causing a wound from which
blood flowed freely Kutlng was only
stunned and running after his con
federates he scrambled Into the en
gine Just as It was getting under way
The guards inside the prison do not
carry weapons
Katlng was employed for five years
as an engineer on tho Lake Shore and
he assumed the leadership when the
engine started Tie directed Charles Ua
Curtain the engineer to throw her 1w
wide open and told Fireman Allllnrd
Heeler to shovel coal as he had never rei
shoveled before rh
When tho engine reached a point 12 I
six miles northwest of tho prison Lwl
where the road was skirted on both
sides by heavy timber the engineer nl
and fireman were Instructed to kill rWI
the engine Then the desperadoes r
forced the engine crew to disrobe and S6G
two of the convicts appropriated their vk
garments The men started to force t
the guard to disrobe also but Hewitt ds
objected and the men plunged into I
the woods Tho trainmen then forc p1
ed Ute engine and rushed it back
Clark and Gideon were placed In at
solitary confinement when returned to II
tho prison 1
llowltt Katlng and Clark were lead 10
