I Found in Strong Cox Worth S?,000>000. | New York City (Special).?All the Henients which would enter into a hold and gigantic plot to obtain fraud tdently an estate worth several millions of dollars were present in the accusations which were Friday made against Albert T. Fat rick and Charles F. .lopes, the attorney and valet respectively of William M. ltice. tlio Texas millionaire, who died suddenly nearly two weeks ago. under clrcuuistances that induced tin* Coroner's office to institute an investigation. A. T. Fat rick was arrested upon a charge of forging Mr. Hire's name to I wo elieeks l or JSoit.OOO and JfGo.bOO respectively. Charles F. .tones was arrested as Fatrick's neeotnplice. In addition to the two eheeks on which the arrest was made, the police an murines ih'iu'vi1 null two ol 111*1" cuccks, one tor J? 1 fio.t<<>o. tin- oilut for ?- "?.otto, both of which wore presented for j?:?yitient or certification after Mr. Rice's ilontIt. nro also forgeries.

Five handwritins experts unhesitatingly declare that the signatures to the cheeks for and !?.*ir>,000 are clumsy forgeries, traced with a dry pen and tiien tilled in with ink. While no more serious crime than i forgery lias been charged against cither of the two men now under arrest, the police are convinced that j Mr. Kiee died the victim of an assas- j sill. They point to the vast fortune j as a motive for the deed, and then | turn to the forged documents to fur- j nlsli corroborative evidence. l>r. Walter Curry, who attended old Mr. Kiee during the last live months ! of Ids life, it lias been learned, was introduced by Patrick. Nux vomica, j according to i>r. Curry, was prescribed 1 l>y him as a tonic for the ?1<1 man ami administered daily by Jones. It is a j deadly poison in large doses. Mr. ltioe died suddenly.

Lawyer Patrick was the first man j summoned after death. lie gave di i veetions to have the body embalmed | when lie knew that the deceased had ! especially and emphatically declared against it. The embalming was to be followed promptly by cremation. In the District Attorney's otlice tin opinion prevails that a conspiracy ot great proportions will ho niienioc.xi when the caw comes to trial and that it will he demonstrated that forgery it ml nitmler have been closely allied in an attempt to obtain possession of the millions that were owned by Willlam Marsh Iilee.

Tweutv-two companies were represented in the meeting, but no agreement was reached.
