KANTSAS CITY. April 20. — A stormy
courtroom scene in which many law
yers addressed the court at the same
time and bandied charges of unfair
play among themselves marked the
trial of Dr. B. C. Hyde for the murder
of Colonel Thomas H. Swope this aft
The trouble arose over an attache of
Prosecutor Conkllng's office losing: the
grand jury notes on the testimony of
Dr. Walter S. Haines and 42 other state
\u25a0witnesses. A woman found the notes
and gave them to Frank P. Walsh,
chief counsel for Doctor Hyde.
These notes, according to Walsh,
contain statements of Doctor Haines
that no cyanide of potassium was
found in the viscera of Colonel Swope
«.nd not enough poison was found in
Chrisman Swope's viscera to cause
PERJURY CHARjGE THREATENED
If Doctor Haynes swears on the \u25a0wit
r.ess stand to any alleged facts other
than these he will be prosecuted for
jerjury, said Walsh. Perjury is a cap
ital offense in a murder case.
Prosecutor Conkling admits that this
is the testimony Doctor Haines gave
* before the grand Jury, but avers later
the chemist found traces of cyanide of
potassium in both viscera. He will
testify to this, says Conkling.
In the meantime the papers have
been returned to the state and the de
fense is in possession of carbon copies
of the evidence. Judge Latshaw is of
the opinion he has no power to deprive-"
the defense of the copies.
Miss Pearl Keller, who attended Col
onel Swope in his last illness, took the
stand after the upheaval in court. She
told about and acted out, in part, the
entire scene in the millionaire's death
chamber. As Colonel Swope was un
eble to speak during a part of his Ill
ness, when attorneys asked Miss Kel
ler about his actions during this pe
riod, phe was forced to explain them
OBJECTION TO MEDICINE
Doctor Hyde ordered her to give Col
onel Swope the capsule upon which
hinges the entire case, said Miss Keller.
' Colonel Swope did not want to take
the medicine, the testified. After he
2-.ad taken It he passed through the
convulsion, she said, and moaned: "Oh.
r.iy God. I wish I were dead; I wish I
had not taken that medicine."
Doctor Hyde ordered two hypodermic
Injections of strychnine when Colonel
Swope's pulse was at 140. said Miss
Keller. The nurse said that Doctor
Hyde told her Colonel Swope was
plainly suffering from apoplexy.
Miss Keller started to tell of the
typhoid epidemic in the Swope home.
The defense objected, contending this
was immaterial to the death of Colonel
Swope. The court held that it would
not admit any of this testimony until
the state showed a connection.
This action by the court caused much
surprise. Earlier in the day the court
held that the state might introduce the
death of James Moss Hunton. which,
the defense contended, was as irrele
vant as the typhoid cases.
ATTEMPT TO SHOW MOTIVE
The court held that the state -was
attempting to prove motive on the
' t part of Doctor Hyde in the alleged kill
'ing of Hunton,
Miss Keller immediately began to

'Dr. G. T. Twyman bled the patient,

Hunton's arm," said the witness.
"After a pint of blood had been drawn

had been enough bleeding. Doctor
;Hyd« dissented from this opinion and

. "A. second and a third time Doctor
Twyman objected to the bleeding. But
Doctor Hyde continued the bleeding.
i 'That's enough blood to take from any
ctan,' said Doctor Twyman.

He then hid his head under the covers
of his bed and moaned 'Poor Moss." "
The shock of Hunton's death did not
greatly unnerve Colonel Swope, said
Miss Keller. He did not do riding that
day, out of deference to Hunton, said
the nurse. Doctor Hyde was at the
house October 2 and again at night,
"When Doctor Hyde came to the
house at night," she continued, "we
met in the hall. He asked me 11} I had
spoken to Colonel Swope regarding the
appointment of an administrator to
succeed Hunton. I told him I had not.
The physician made no reply."
The last day of Colonel Swope's life
was entered upon at this point.
"What was Colonel Swope's condition
when you first saw him on the morn-
Ing of October 3?" asked Attorney
Reed for the state.
"He was bright and cheerful," replied

PAPERS FOUND IX STREET
These papers, Walsh said, had been
found in the street by a woman and
turned over to him.
Walsh's assertion followed a demand
of the court for Walsh to tell whether
he had in his possession papers belong

"I refuse to answer," shouted Walsh.
"Then bring in the Jury," said Judge
Latshaw, striking the desk with his

and made the startling statement.
The i order for the Jury to be re

said a court hotly.
