OF ANARCHISTS Poisoner of Banquat Guests Not Located. PROMINENT MEN MARKED Analysis of Soup Served at Chicago Banquet Shows -180 Grains of Arsen ic Used Police Declare Plot to Kill Prominent Men. Plilnnnn I.V.I. 1.1 "I .In Tint wish to create a panic In Chicago," was the i reply of First Deputy Superintendent I of Police Schttettler, when asked to I give his views of the plot to poison 200 prominent Chlcagoans at the ban-1 quot In honor of Archbishop Mun- dcleln. Schuettler refused to admit that ho believes Jean Crones, missing assist ant chef at tho University club, Is the only man who figured In the plot. Indications that Schuettler Is hot I on Crones' trail and Is gathering evi dence or a wholesale plot, In which Crones was only a unit among a gang of anarchists, who planned to wlpo out a distinguished group of men, ap peared to bo borne out from activities of his staff of detectives. Two hours before Health Commis sioner Robertson gave out tho report of P. O. Tonnoy, city chemist, that 3.7 grains of whito oxide arsenic had been found In an analysis of a pint (16 ounces) of tho poisoned soup served at the banquet, two anarchists were taken into Schucttler's office. They were confronted with tran scripts of speeches taken down by Schuettler's Investigators and by oth er agents, who have been present at every secret and open meeting of tho revolutionists of Chicago. When they had gone, Schuettler in an Interview admitted he has had re- ports on Crones for several months. -sJ-He knows the meetings Crones had ' attended and what no saui ai uiu meetings. Ho admitted Crones Is a "dyed-ln-the-wool" anarchist, that he I knows his associates. Schuettler found that Crones at a meeting of anarchists last May asked , the speaker If his study of chemistry he Is an amateur chemist would in jure his standing In the anarchists movement. The speaker's reply prob-1 ably throws light on the motive 01 tho poison plot. It was this: "No, a chemist could do a great deal In the anarchist movement." Search of Crones' room brougnt to light the names of two of his asso-1 elates ana tneir nuurusaca. i.o Is a New Yorker and the other lives In Scranton, Pa. From the report of the city chemist, which was given out by the health -commissioner, It appears that only the practice of serving meager 'dishes of soups and consommes at an exclusive banquet, saved the lives of the dinner guests. Commissioner Robertson de clared that two grains of arsenic 13 the smallest poisonous dose. Mr. Tonney estimated that 480 grains of arsenic had been placed In the sonp kettle. It was also stated that a bottle which had contained this amount of tho poison had been found In Crones' room.
