Kansas City, Jnn. 31. Poison has
been found In tho organs of Colonel
Thomas II. Swopo and his nophow,
Ohrlsman, and upon this finding tho
holm ot tho dead millionaire will de
mand an Investigation by tho stato
to ascertain tho causo of tho death
last fall of these two mon. This defi
nite statement was made by a repre
sentative of tho Swopo estate, follow
Jng the recolpt of a partial ropoit of
tho chemists In Chicago.
Tho nolRon, It is stated, wnB found
In tho livers mid not In tho stomachs
ot tho dead men. Whether or not It
was In sufficient quantity to havo
caused death and' was administered
for that purpose, must bo dotermlnod
by ft coroner's Inquest. This Inquest
probably will bo begun tomorrow.
Upon tho verdict returned by this
body will depend tho action of the
county prosecutor.

Place Where Big Battle Is to Be Held
to Be Settled This Week.
Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 31. "This

be held," said Sam Berber, Joffrlcs'
manager. "I have nn appointment
with Juck flleason In Seattlo tomor
row. Gleason will then go to Tex
Richard and tho slto will be decided
on. All this talk between promoters
amounts to nothJng. Possibilities of
the Jeffrtes-JohtiBon fight, based on
tho Interest shown, amount to $G0O,
000, Including gate receipts and reve
nue derived from advertisement. It
Is foolish, then, to think Rlcknrd and
Gleason will penult an estrangement.
A positive answar from Governor
Spry Is oxpocted by Rlcl.nrrt this
