' "I, A. L. Sramkamp, coroner of Mid
county, having examined the body of
Cddla White, and hoard tha testimony
of. tha witneeeee which la hereto at
tached, do hereby find that eald de
ceased came to hla death the 23rd day
of. December, 1909, from poisoning by
arsenic, how and by whom adminis
tered, and with what . purpose the
evidence procurable by me fails to
establish."
The above is the report of Coroner
A. I Bramkamp, filed this morning,
with County Clerk Harry E. Penny.
Eddie White died at his home, about
one mile south of Whitewater on De
cember 23, after an illneer. of one week.
Hla Illness and death was suspicious to
the residents of that vicinity, but no
Information was furnished the county
officials until late In January and on
January 28, Coroner A. L. Bramkamp
held hla official autopsy.
' Eddie K. White was a well known
young fanner, having lived in White
water and that vicinity his entire life.
He lived with hla wife and one daugh
ter on a farm, aouth of Whitewater,
and was highly respected in that neigh
borhood. On December 15, he and his wife,
leaving their daughter at Whitewater,
came to this city, and did some shop
ping. Among the supplies purchased
was a can of corn, which was prepared
for supper upon the return of Mr. and
Mrs. White that evening. Mrs. White
had a headache and did not eat much
aupper, but her husband ate a large
amount of the corn. ;'
Mrs. White Becomes III.
Mrs. White became very 111, that
evening and vomited repeatedly. How
ever, Mar. White's health was as usual
and not until aftery his breakfast on
the following morning, did he feel ill.
He became very sick and vomited fre
quently. Dr. A. H. Jones of White
water, was called to the home and
treated him for stomach trouble, be
lieving that the illness was due to
eating the corn, the night before.
While Mr. White was very sick, yet
he was not considered seriously so, and
was only confined to his bed two days.
A week after he was taken ill, he
died. Just previous to his death he
was unconscious, and before this, ner
vous and excitable. He had com
plained to those about him during his
delirium that something was trying to
kill him. At no time, did he experi
ence any great amount of pain, his suf
fering being more from numbness and
contraction of the muscles of the ab
dominal regions.
; V Sensational Stories Heard.
Dr. A. H. Jones, the attending phy
sician. In his death return, announced
that he believed death was due to pto
maine poisoning, as a result of eating
the canned corn. Mr. White was bur
led In the cemetery in Whitewater, and
after his death, rather sensational sto
ries were circulated. The authorities
heard of these and started an exami
nation. On January 28, the coroner
ordered that the body be exhumed. He,
in company with Dr. J. E, Weller, con
ducted a post mortem examination.
However, they were unable to discov
er any causes for. death, other than
thai it was due to natural causes.
Dr. Alburger. the head pathologist
at Indiana university was asked to
make an examination and did so. He,
la.tnrn, found nothing positive and at
the direction of the coroner, the organs
FIDIIG
bi
were turned over to Dr. It. E. Lyons,
one of the chemists at the university.
Dr. Lyons addressed the coroner, stat
ing that he found positive evidences of
arsenic and it was on this, as a basis,
that coroner Bramkamp, rendered his
verdict this morning.
Grand Jury May Be Called.
Coroner Bramkamp stated this
morning that so far as his connection
with the case was concerned he bad
comnleted his Investigation. Prose
cuting attorney Charles Ladd stated
that if any convincing evidence was se
cured and arrests made on suspicion,
that the grand Jury will be called, and
at the same time Investigate the mur
der of Mrs. Prank Allison. The call
for the grand jury has not been issued
as yet. ,
Sends Stomach to Pathologist.
The coroner removed the stomach
and a few other internal organs of EdV
die White. That these might be chem
ically analyzed, the stomach was sent
to Prof. Albert R. Alburger, head of
the department of pathology of Indi
ana university and he, in turn, deliver
ed the organs over to Dr. Robert E.
Lyons a well known chemist- In the
introduction of his verdict the coroner
says: v. ' ' "
Rumora of ,FouJ Play.
1 "The report was brought to me
from' various sources that the death
of Eddie KWhlta. of.nearl35aUtewat-
er, December 23, was under suspicious
circumstances, that the indications
were that death had not occurred
from poisoning by canned corn, as
was alleged by the attending physi
cian, but by some other person, per
haps intentionally administered by
someone for the purpose of causing
death..
An Autopsy la Held.
"Arrangements were made to have
the, body exhumed from the grave in
the cemetery at Whitewater by Sex
ton A. B. Austin, on January 28, and
on this date at about 2 o'clock p. m.,
under instructions of the coroner, an
autopsy was held by Dr. J. E. Weller;
of Richmond, whose report is-hereto
attached. .
"The microscopic findings faUt'd to
establish satisfactorily the cause of
death; therefore specimens of various
viscira were sent by me to the pathol
ogical laboratory of the state univer
sity at Bloomington, Ind. .The path
ologist, there, Dr. Alburger, reported
that the microscopic findings also
were not sufficient to establish the
cause of death, and in answer to the
direct question, stated that the find
ings were such as would occur if arse
nic had been ingested. Under my in
structions, Dr.- Alburger delivered to
Robert E. Lyons, chemist, at the uni
versity, the specimens and he at my
request, carried out on them, the
tests for arsenic with positive results
as shown by his report under date of
March 23, 1910, herewith appended.
The embalming fluid used was proved
to ' contain no arsenic (see Frigid
Fluid Co., letter.)" v
Letter From Dr. Alburger. .
A letter dated February , 18, and ad
dressed to Coroner Bramkamp by Dr.
Alburger, the pathologist, is In part
as follows:
" v However, it would seem
that I am already, more or less involv
ed so will say to you that the his
trologic findings might easily have
been , caused by the arsenic, especial
ly the condition of the stomach. The
lack of decomposition could also be
explained by the presence of the arse
nic in the tissues. We can make an
analysts for arsenic, provided no arse
nic was used in the embalming fluid.
I have the specimens in the
original contalnes in which they were
sent and can proceed on advice from
you."
. Positive Testa For Arsenic
The letter from the university
chemist. Dr. R E. Lyons will also be
of Interest. It Is dated March 23. 1910
and is in full as follows: ,
"In accordance with your request,
I have made the chemical examina
tion for arsenic in the postmortem
material (stomach and piece of liver)
delivered to me by Dr. Alburger on
March 17, 1910, and beg to report as
follows:
"The liver, and stomach, each gave
positive tests for arsenic.
I ' find the stomach membrane to
contain . forty-five- one-hundredths
(45-100) of a grain of arsenic, calcu
lated as arsenic tri-oxide."
Or. Welter Reports.
Dr. J. E. Weller of this city, who un
der the ; direction of Coroner " Bram
kamp, conducted the post mortem ex
amination, reported to the official his
findings. Some of the salient points
are: -
"Height 5 feet 9 inches; weight 140
m me
pounds; body shows no wounds, ex
cept a penetrating wound to the ab
dominal wall, made by the undertak
er In process of embalming; body
comparatively well nourished showing
that death was due to some acute
process; perltomeum. and intestines
normal; stomach-size normal, on low
er curvature there are four perfora
tions, having the appearance of hav
ing been made by the-needle used in
embalming. The stomach contained
one-half pint of chocolate colored
fluid. The mucous membrane shows
evidence of chronic .gastritis, with
some erosions on the lower curva
ture having the appearance of ulcers.
The pyloris is normal but Infiltrated
with bile; live, normal, middle lobe
shows two punctures each, one and
half inches apart, probably. made dur
ing the process of embalming; spleen,
left and right kidney, all normal; left
and right lungs, greatly congested,
but showing no evidence of disease;
heart full of broken down blood but
valves and ventricles, normal. Brain
not diseased.
"Postmortem examination of the
body, without chemical examination
of parts of the internal organs and
the stomach and its contents, reveals
nothing that would indicate that death
occurred from other than natural
causes," is the conclusion of Dr. Wel-
ler's report. 1
Testimony of Mrs. White.
The testimony of Mrs. Maude M.
White, the widow, secured on January
28 is voluminous and covers the time
of their married life, which was nine
years before death. She said that
he had measles two years ago and
had stomach trouble ever since.' fre
quently vomiting. She says that on
Saturday December 4, the deceased
took several chews of Honest" Scrap
tobacco, on the cover of which were
some green 'spects. He became ill
but the next day was as well as usual.
On the night of ' Wednesday, Decem
ber 15, the witness said that she was
taken ill with . nausia and vomiting.
Her husband seemed to be in usual
health, except that his head hurt. Af
ter eating a light breakfast on Decern-ber-lO-he-
became sick and -vomited,
most of the day. ' '- , '
Both Ate Canned Corn.
She says that she believes her own
and her husband's illness was brought
about by eating canned corn for sup
per on December 15. - Mr." White was
sick for several days, vomiting f re
quently, but did not take to his bed
until December 22. The deceased did
not . think his illness anything more
serious than stomach trouble. The
widow said that Dr. Jones was called
on December 16 and saw her husband
every day until his death. Dr. Jones
told Mrs. White . that her husband's
temperature was at all times no more
than a half degree above ' normal.
The deceased had an attack of numb
ness and coldness on December ,20
and again on December 22. Dr. Har
ley was called into consultation by
Dr. Jones on the morning of White's
death, Mrs. White says. .She said
that he arrived about 4:40 o'clock, the
morning of December 23. about twen
ty minutes before Mr. White's death.
She said that Dr Harley said death was
probably due to the effects of eating a
large amount of canned corn. In her
opinion, according to her testimony
to the coroner, she thought death was
due to acute indigestion, brought on
by eating a large amount of canned
corn. .
Mrs. Amanda J. Kennedy who as
sisted Mrs. White in nursing her hus
band during his last illness, told the
coroner that Mr.. White was a heavy
drinker. . She said that he gradually
became worse and was conscious until
within an hour of his death. She says
that Dr. Jones administered nitrogly
cerine, hypodermically and also by his
mouth, four hours and fifteen minutes
before his death.
Testimony of Or. Jones. ;"
Dr. A. H. Jones the attending physi
cian and living at Whitewater, in his
testimony before the coroner, gave a
history of the illness of theMecedent,
as he, as a physician was faifiiliar
with it He says that Mr. White be
came a patient of his when he had an
attack of tonsilitis in the fall. He
said that it appeared to him, when
first called that the illness was -due
to eating the corn. He said that his
condition did not appear serious. He
left a cathartic on the occasion of his
first visit. He said that he was call
ed on Wednesday and that White said
something was killing him, complain
ing that the muscles of his stomach
were cramped. A stimulant and seda
tive was administered. His pulse was
poor at this time. That night. White
became very cold and perspired pro
fusely. One eighth grain of mor
phine hypo was administered
first and In half an hour
one-thirtieth grain of strychnine
sulphate. Still later, one one-hundred
and. fiftieth grain of atropine was ad
ministered. Dr. Harley of Hollands
burg was called by Dr. Jones and
when he entered the room. Dr. Jones
says that he remarked, "He Is a dying
man." Dr. parley, concurred.
Dr. Jones Gives Opinion.
At the time of death,. Dr. Jones ask
ed whether It would be a : coroner's
case and Dr. Harley responded that
it would not as he had a similar case,
a Mrs. Joseph Skinner, who had died
from eating a can of cove oysters. Dr.
Jones says that in his opinion and
that it still was his opinion (on Jan
uary 28) that White's death was due
winriE
to eating canned corn, causing pto
maine poisoning..: He further states
that in his observance of the case,
he had noted nothing which led him
to believe that White's death was due
to other than natural causes. He said
that he had no reason to suspect that
death was due to anything else.
BREAKS UP SERVICE
Ex-communicated Priest Vis

POLICE REFUSED TO ACT
(Special Cable from the International
news ervice.j
Milan, April S. An. extraordinary
scene has occurred at the Cathedral
of Pisa. A solomn Requiem Mass

priest and the leader of the Italian
Christian v Democratic movement
against whom Plus X had hurled the
major excommunication, entered the
sacred edifice clad in the sacredotal
cassock, which be has never laid
aside.
According to the Canon Law, the
presence of a solemnly excommunicat

requirements, and 1 immediately Don
Murri's presence became known, stop
ped divine service, and, summoning
the cathedral guards and canons, hade
them eject .the great , churchman, who
was quietly kneeling and saying his
prayers.
The guards declined, on the plea
that such action rendered them liable
to arrest for an infraction of the Civil
Law. The city police were thenjcall

gling. Murri remained .calmly recit
ing g)is breviary for about half an
hour, and : then, after admiring the
glorious - architecture of the building
retired as unostentatiously as he had
entered. It was only then that High
Mass was iroceeded with.

(Palladium Special)
Indianapolis, Ind., April 9. It is the
understanding; that the coming cam
paignwill be a busy .-one. from the
standpoint of the stump speaker. Pres
ent indications are that , there will be
about as many speakers in the field
and about as many speeches made this
year as in any other campaign year,
whether presidential year or not.' Both
sides say they are preparing to storm
the works of the other side.
Senator - Beveridge, it is . understood,
will forego a part of his vacation the
coming summer and spend practically
all of his time in this state, making
a speaking campaign which will carry
him into every county. - There is no
man in the country - that can stand
more hard work than he can, and he is
going to have a chance to prove it this
year, for he is to be the big card of the
season in the republican fight. It is
understood that a number of speakers
from outside the state will be brought
in to help the republican campaign
also," and that some of them will be in
surgent congressmen and senators who
will come in and expound the tariff
views which they hold and which Sen
ator Beveridge holds.
- t He May Be Chairman. -
It is "said that7WWH.HaysorSu
livan will , be the chairman of the re
publican speakers' bureau during the
coming campaign, though it is not def
lnitely settled yet; Hays was the
chairman of the - speakers' bureau two
years ago and ; four years ago, and
knows tbe . game ' like a book. His
work in those two campaigns won for
him great praise because of the excel
lent manner in which he handled the
speaking part of ? the campaign. He
brought in from outside a large num
ber of noted spellbinders, and these,
together . with the Indiana republicans
who volunteered to go into the cam
paign, gave r Hays a list ; of speakers,
the like of which has not been seen in
many a day. And he placed them to
good advantage throughout the cam
paign.
. Hays was the permanent secretary of
the republican - state convention this
week, and again won high praise for
his work. He is one of the best known
young republicans in tbe state.
Can't Lose the Democrats.
The democrats say- they will not be
behind the republicans in the matter
of making - a speaking campaign this
year. Bert Hendren, of Linton, has
already been selected-at the chairman
of the democratic speakers bureau, and
Is ready to jump into the lob at a mo
ment's notice, .r He is a son of Gilbert
Hendren. of Bloomfield, who has been

RELEASE A MURDER SUSPECT
BUT TRAIL GROWING WARMER
Man Held at New Castle Taken
Identified, But the People of That Town Saw the Man
the Authorities Are Hunting, Their Description of
Him Tallying Perfectly in Every Detail.
SEARCH MAINTAINED
Suspect Has Been Traced, Through Description Given by
Mrs. Clevenger, to County Infirmary and Thence to
Hagerstown While at That Place, the Suspect
; Asked for Newspapers at Several Homes.
Although the man arrested at New Castle last evening on suspicion of
being the murderer of Mrs. Prank Allison was released at Hagerstown this
morning, when taken there by Marshal Drischell of Cambridge City, for
the purpose of identification, the authorities are confident that the clue
furnished by Mrs. Joseph Clevenger of Milton, is the only reliable one that
they have in their possession, and they are confident that the man who
Mrs. Clevenger saw running across a field between 12 and 1 o'clock on the
afternoon of the murder, is the slayer of Mrs. Allison, and they are also
confident that the man who was in Hagerstown yesterday, and who impu
dently accosted several women and greatly alarmed Mrs. Mary Punk; an
aged woman, by his threatening actions,- was the man who Mrs. Clevenger
saw. . . : v.,, . , .
These conclusions are based on hard facts and excellent evidence. The
man in question is now the only quarry in the man chase, which is now '
on, and the authorities are hopeful of soon having him in custody. Offi
cials in every town in this section of the country have been furnished a
good description of the suspect and farmers abd townspeople are on guard
for him. All of western Wayne county from the Henry county
line to the Fayette county line, is thoroughly aroused. This morning the -county
commissioners offered a reward of $.YK for the arrest and convic
tion of the slayer, and residents of Cambridge City will raise an equal
amount.-..
Keller, the man arrested at New Castle, answers the description of
the suspect by his dark complexion and by the light brown felt hat he
wears, but in other respects he does not fit the description. He is at
least five inches shorter than tbe man wanted. For that reason he was
released today.

How Man Was Traced.
The man on whom the suspicion of
the brutal . crime has now been fas
tened, first attracted notice to himself
while at Cambridge City last Tuesday.
A cowboy belonging to tbe Buckskin
Ben wild west show noticed him near
the showman's farm holding a chick
en, from which he plucked all the
feathers and then turned the unfortu
nate bird loose. It was the action of
a man with fiendish instincts. When
the man noticed the cowboy he hasti
ly . departed, lie was next seen late
Tuesday afternoon on the road to Mil
ton. It is on this road that the Allison
farm is located.
No traces of him are to be found on
Wednesday, except a statement made
by Mrs. Joseph Clevenger,; a i Milton
woman. . She says that between; 12
and 1 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, a
few hours after the murder, she saw a
man running, that he hurriedly jumped
a fence and ran across a field toward
a woods. As she was some distance
away 8he did not obtain a good view
of him, but gives the following descrip
tion:. Bark complectioned, looking like
a negro, felt hat and light suit.
Led Through a Creek.
It will be remembered that hounds
were placed on the tracks made by
the man that Mrs. Clevenger saw, and
these dogs followed him nearly to Cen
terville, and the scent led through a
creek, which the man' had waded.
Friday it was learned by Palladium
men working on the case that late in
the afternoon of the day the crime
was committed, a man called at the
county infirmary, near Centerville and
requested something to eat. His
clothes were wet, he was dark com
plectioned, wore a felt hat and was
thought to be a tramp.
When the man left he headed for
Hagerstown.
Seen at Hagerstown.
A Palladium reporter at Hagers
town this morning learned that a Mrs.
Burton was probably the first person
who saw the suspect in that locality.
As she was driving to town she no
ticed a tramp, wearing a felt ? hat,
travel-stained and very dark complect
ioned. When the man noticed her he
laid down in a ditch until the rig had
passed. This occurred Thursday af
ternoon. ' the day following the mur
der. The man's whereabouts that even
ing are unknown, but Friday morning
he entered Hagerstown and called at
several homes and asked for a break
fast. He was very insolent and the
women who talked to him describe
him to tally with the description of
the man seen at Cambridge City, the
county infirmary and by Mrs. Cleven
ger. , '
He Was Threatening. -
He became very threatening at the
home of Mrs. Mary Funk but was
frightened away. At the home of
Mrs. McGowan he was very anxious
to see a newspaper. At other homes
he also asked for newspapers.
Marshal Dixon was finally informed
of the man's strange actions and be
started out to Cud him, but the man
succeeded in getting out of town. Late
yesterday afternoon when Dixon be
came convinced that the stranger was
the probable murderer of Mrs. Allison
he started on a search, which he main
to Hagerstown But Is Not
THROUGHOUT MIGHT
who is now being bunted down: -
tained, but without results, until 11
o'clock last night. - , ,
This morning Dan Flske, who oper ¬
ates a sugar camp a mile southeast
of Hagerstown. k informed Marshal
Dixon that the "suspect had slept 'Fri
day night at - the sugar camp. His
whereabouts today are unknown. Lon
Anderson, who works for Flske, had a
good view of the man and describes
him according to the description held
by the Cambridge City authorities. 1
