three weeks ago Dr B C Hyde came I
Into tho court room frrom the Jail

stand TIlls did not seem to worry
the physician
Discussing the evidence of Dr Hall I
given yesterday Dr Hyde said
They never can hang a man on
t sUmon llko that
Mrs Hyde too was pleased with
the manner In which the defense com
batted the testimony of Dr Hall Sho
said she felt it was a victor for her
Dr Calvin Adklns city physician of
Independence testified as to the con
dition of Col Swopos body Ho did
not believe the natural bodily ail
ments would have caused death
Dr Ludwig Hektoen followed Dr
Adkln to the stand The scientist ex
plained that ho was a patheolo st
and not a lexicologist and that he i
never had an active part In the chem
icl analysis of the Swopo case He
was Interviewed by Mr Paxton and
Thomas H Swopo Jr In Chicago on
December 22 he said and on Decem
ber 30 was employed to work on the

December 22 he testified ho received
the two men the ejects Margaret
Swope and some capsules Ho turned
tho articles over to Dr Walter S
Haines of Chicago for examination J
said the witness I
The autopsy on Chrlsman Swope on I
December 30 was llrct testified to
Was thero anything about the brain I
that suggested meningitis asked Mr

Was thero anything about this or
gan which would account for death I
No sir There were the traces of
typhoid in an early stage There were
no signs of congestion in the brain
said the physician
Was thorp present In that body
anything which would lead you to be
lieve death was from natural causes
was asked
From what I saw on tho organs at
the time of tho autopsy I did not feel
justified in attempting to give tho
cause of death answered the witness
In answer to a long hypothetic
question setting forth the condition of
Mr Swope and asked what In his
opinion was the cause of death tho
witness said
First tho victim of typhoid fever I
It also would scorn ho was suffering
from the effects of some powerful
and paralyzing poison

San Francisco April 30 Tommy
McCarthy the lightweight pugilist of
this city who was knocked out and
his skull fractured In tho sixteenth
round of his fight with Owen Moran
of England at Dreamland rink hero
last night dlod of his Injuries at St
Marys hospital early today For over
an hour Uic boy was under the knife
in the operating room of the hospital
but all efforts to save his lifo proved
unavailing and shortly after he was
removed to his cot the fighter passed
away never having regained con
McCarthy skull was fractured at
the baso oil tho brain as a rosult of
the impact of his head against tho
I mat after Moran had sent him to the
I floor with a heavy overhand swing
to the jaw He was carried to his
corner where his seconds not real
izing the gravity of his condition
worked over him for half an hour be
fore physicians remonstrated and
crUFed the stricken lad to bo hurried
to the hospital McCarthys mother
objected to an operation being per
formed it isaadr and It was long
after midnJght before the boy was
taken Into the operating room
Owen Moran and his seconds Jeff
Perry and Jimmy Carroll and Mc
Carthys brothers William and Thom
as who acted as his seconds with
Hornard Trcauor were all placed un
der arrest
The accident occurred after sixteen
lounds of fast fighting in which the
honors up to thnt time had been about
ovon A big crowd witnessed the con
test and despite the noise in the ring
the thud of McCarthys head striking
the floor following Moraus hard blow
I was plainly heard in all parts of the
It is said that McCarthy had gone
stale in his training for the fight and
that ho was in poor shapo to meet
tho Britisher
What effect this ring fatality will
have on the coming battle between
Jeffries and Johnson at Emoryvlllo
Is a question of interesting specula
Ion among fight fans and others to
Tex RIckard one of the promoters
of the big fight said last night that
ho did not think a fatal termination
of McCarthys injury would affect the
heavyweight contest Neither Jeffricn
nor Johnson he declared is likely se
riously to hurt the other He pointed
out the youth and Inexperience of
McCarthy in support of his state
When I lilt him ho was going
away and r dont see how tho blow
possibly could bare caused death
said Moran today
Sporting circles today are obviously
disturbed over this latest prize ring
fatality fearing Its effect on the com
ing JeffriesJohnson flghL Johnson
has cancelled his engagement to ap
pear In a public exhibition here to
night As soon aa he heard of Mc
Carthys death Johnson went into
consultation with fox Rlckard and
Jaclc Gleason tho promoters of tho
Fourth of July fight and later In the
day It Is understood that a public
statement will bo Issued
Chief of Police John D Martin said
The gamo undoubtedly will bo
given a black eye In this town for
some time to come because of McCar
thys depth As far as I knot no ofll
clal action will follow his death un
less I am satisfied that tho regula
tions governing such contests were
violated In lost nights light To mo
it seems Just one of those unfortunate
accidents which sometimes mar the
pugilistic game as well as the game
of football
When tho principals and seconds
later wero arraigned before Police
Judge Conlan Willie and Johnny Mc
Carthy brothers of the dead fighter I
woro released on their own recogniz i
ance while the others were held In I
500 bonds each or 100 cash ball
Nono of them has yet secured bonds
The nix men arrested last night are
Owou Moran Jeff Perry and James
Carroll two of his seconds William
and John McCarthy seconds and
brothers of tho dead fighter mad Ber
nard Painter another of his seconds
Four cf the lending participants In
the fatal prlzo fight are thus far suc
cessfully evading tho police Theyy
arc Trlx Krcollng Moraus principal
second Spider Kelly McCarthys prin J
cipal second James Griffin manager
of the club which conducted the fishr
and Charlie Harvey Mornns manager
No warrants have yet been Issued
for those men and It Is not known
whether or not they will be arrested
for their part In the affair
In his cell today Moran mournpil
the death of his opponent and plain
= nl1li
ly showed his trepidation Poor 1
poor boy ho said almost weeping
It was an accident but oh such a
terrible one
Then wiping his eyes tho English
man declared the fight was a frame
up tho agreement being that McCar
thy was to bo allowed to stay through
fifteen rounds It was in the sixteenth
round Moran sent the terrible right
cross to the Jaw that sent his man to
the mat unconscious
After his conference with Gleasou
and Ricknrd Johnson Raid he did not
believe that the McCarthy fatality
would haro the slightest effect on his
Fourth of July championship battle
with Jeffiles
