Woman Accused of Child Murder Visit
ed By Several Relatives and She
St. Albans, Jan. fl.- Mrs. Julius Wells,
accused of the murder of her two young
est children, has received many visitors
at the county jail, among them her hus
band, an eldest son and daughter, her
father, Knos 1-adtie, of Milton, her sis

and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Billings of Fair-
Mr. Wells advances a theory to the
effect that the children might have pro
cured the poison accidentally in the food
and says that at the tune of their death
in December he had asked a physician
if rats could carry poison to vegetables
in the cellar.
Mrs. Bombard, Mrs. Wells' sister,
said to a rejiortcr yesterday that a lit
tle while before Christinas Mr. and Mrs.
Wells were at her home and that when
Mrs. Wells was out of the room Mr. '
Wells had told her stories were current
in Swanton that his wife had poisoned
the children, adding that he was afraid
she had and that, if no, it was the re
sult of sickness and an unbalanced men
Mrs. Wells' father, Enos Ladue, said
that a few years ago wheu the Wells
family lived in Milton, Mr. Wells eamo
to his house, leaving Mrs. Wells nt home.
Mrs. Ladue went to the Wells house
about ten minutes after and could not
find Mrs. Wells. It was sometime be
fore she could be located, but was final
ly found in the field, apparently .-dazed
and very much frightened. It took a
physician some time to arouse her. She
had frequently acted queerly and some
times would run into a corner and throw
her apron over her head. Mr. Ladue said
that he was a poor man, but that he
was going to do what he could for his

posed of, but that many of the most
important measures still remained for
consideration. There are 'J.ii bills now
before the legislature, and this number
is likely to be increased to 400.
Among some of the more important
measures to be taken up are the follow
ing: Taxation, primary elections, pub
licity of campaign expenses, employers'
liability, amendments to state and fed
eral constitutions, regulatb-n of hours
of labor anil other labor legislation, inn
keepers' license, appropriations to vari
ous state institutions, election details,
supervision of investment companies, in
terchangeable mileage books, regulation
of sale, and distribution of electric en
ergy, construction of storage reservoirs
for water power.
The proposed enlargement of the State
House, which the special committee lias
been investigating during the holiday
recess, is likely to come liefore the leg
islature within a short time as the com
mittee is ready to report," having vis
ited the addition to the state capital in
New Hampshire and having had the ar
chitect of that in Montpelier consider
ing the Vermont problem.
It is thought that the special commit
tee will recommend additions to the
present structure instead of a new struc
ture. What is known as the "Randall
plan" proposes to build an addition on
each side of the main structure, the front,
of each wing in harmony with the front
of the present building but without por
tico, x he present building is of Barre
granite and it is expected that the ma
terial can be duplicated for the additions.
Making these additions would add SO
feet at each end of tlie .building, which
iri itself Would be a considerable increase
of the accommodations. Such further
room a might lie .required could bt se
cured by building the second story back
on to the hill in the rear, as the pres
ent office of the speaker and clerks was
constructed. The opportunity for bui'd-
ing in that direction is fully commen
surate with any needs of the state gov
eminent for 50 years.
ihe state library can be given all the
room it will require and enabled to pro
vide a better reading and reference room
than it now has. The historical society
an lie given space in which to display
its valuable treasures. Quarters can ha
provided for the lieutenant-governor,
who now has no place except his rostrum
in the Senate chamber, the rooms for
the chief executive can be improved and
plenty of committee rooms can be se
cured, the committee has gone over
this matter very carefully, with the ar
chitect, members of the state govern
ment and others, and has also prated
by the experience of most of its mem- '
hers, who have previously seen and felt
the need of better and more ample ac
