Poisoner of Banquat Guests
Not Located.
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-
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.
