When ts resolution was introduced Sen
ator John' Rli'lnYs said he had not been
staggered by J'i;Uor Depew's ucts and
failed to see In, tie' resolution anything
thai calls for action. He expressed . his
surprise that It was Introduced and he
moved that the resolution be referred to
.he committee on federal relations when
appointed. Senator Balby made a speech
in which he said If Senator Depew had
doiio anything unlawful or that unfitted
liliu to hold office the charges should be
f mined Immediately. He eulogized Depew,
who. he said, was a grand chumcter. He
denounced thn altitude of "alleged reform
ers" who kicked everyone and made wild
charges. Ho declared that only he without
sin should' cast the first stone. Fcrhups

NEW HAVKN, Jan. X-Chsiies A. Bd
wards of New Tork, formerly president
of the Tassaic Chemical coninny of New
Jersey and more recent! an nffleer of the
Oeneral Chemical company, with an office
in New York City, was mysteilourly given
a death wound from a pistol ball while
lying in bed during the night, the guest
of his brother-in-law, Charles A. Hlllef. J
So mysterious was the ease from the out-
set that Deputy Coroner I'ond opened an
Inquest at police headquarters, following
a long and senrenlng Impihy during the
day at the Hiller homestead at It" College
street, almost directly opposite Kast Dl- j
vlnlty, a dormitory of Yale.
Mr. F.dwnrds 'was found' dying la his ,
chamber by Charles A. Hiller. He had re- '
tired about II o'clock last night after nt- '
tending a birthday party In honor of his
sister, Mrs. Samuel Harris, who Is a cousin
of former President Timothy Dwight of '
Yale. Karly hi the ry he unil come over j
from New" York for this special purpose .
and of late he had been :i frequent visitor i
here, usually as a guest of Charles A. or !
A. Maxcy Hiller. both brtohers-ln-M w. I
He retired apparently In the best of spirits. )
Ills failure to appear nt breakfast led i
Charles A. Hiller t.i go upstairs. Accord- '
irg to the latter the chamber door was not i
locked and going In he snw Mr. Kd wards
apparently unconscious from what was at
first thought to be a stroke of apoplexy. !
A little later Hen.lamtn IT. Cheney, M. P.. '
reached the house, but Mr. i'Mward was
then breathing his hist. In the course of
his treatment of the dying man Dr. Cheney
found a bullet hole In tbe left side of the
head, directly behind the ear. The hemor
rhage from It hail not been profuse, but
the bullet bad gone directly Into the brain.
Hear Iloor ( nliolted.
The police reached the conclusion that
there had been a murder, and the Investi
gation proceeded on this line. The found
that the house had not been broken Into
forcibly, but an unbolted kitchen door,
which the house servants claimed was se
curely fastened during the night, gave a
possible1 clue that I'omeone had passed out
of the house by that means. Then was no
sign of a weapon.
Charles A. Hiller lived in the homestead
with two servarts. lie Is unmarried. He
came to this city from Halina. Kan., where
he was a judge about four years ago. He
Is a Thirty-third degree Mason. A. Maxcy
Hiller is a lawyer and lives .it IS! Temple
street. He is very prominent In affairs.
Mr. Falwards was about t years old and
a descendant of Jonathan Kdwnrds. one of
the early presidents of Tale, and was: re
lated to many rHmllles of distinguished
ancestry. He was graduated from Yale
in the academic class of lv'fit-,. and was nn
extremely popular member of the class.
"Charley" Bd wards, as he was known
throughout Yale In those days, was one
of the fathers of base ball tit Yale and
played on several of the early university
nines. He married Miss Sarah Catherine
Hiller, only daughter of Mrs. Abngall Hil
ler. and sister to dairies A. and Maxcy.
Mrs. Hiller died a few weeks Ago. Her
estate has not yet Jieen settled and It is
stated' that the attempted division of the
property caused a bitter disagreement be
tween the Timers and Mr. Edwards.
For almost live hours Deputy Coroner
Pond conducted the preliminary inquest.
Those who were examined were A. Maxcy
Hiller and his brother. Clintios. Coroner
Pond was nuked after the inquest whether
or not the shooting. Iii his mind, was the
result of a quarrel between members of the
Hiller family, but declined to speak def
initely on that point.
NensntloiiM Ifinleil It.
Dr. Cheney said tonight that when he ar- j
rived at the home Mr. Kd wards was dead.
Mr. Kdwards was dressed in his under
clothes. There were black powder marks
on the left ear of the dead man, uccoiding
to Dr. Cheney, but there was no sign of
powder on his lingers. It was stated to
night by one close to the situation regard
ing the alleged differences between the ful
lers and Mr. Kdwards that about three
weeks ago Mrs. Kdwards came to New
Haven, and nt that time there was trouble
over the settlement of the estate of the
elder Mrs. Hiller. who died a few weeks
before. It Is alleged that Mrs. Kdwards
tuilled at police headquarters for a pollca
inan to accompany her to the railroad sta
tion in onler to protect her from the threat
ened violence of certain members of the
family. The police tonight stale that the
cuse probably will develop into one of the
most sensational In the annals of crime in
New Haven. A police guard wus kept over
the Hiller lionW'Stend tonight, no one being
allowed to enter the grounds. A. Maxcy
Hiller Is quoted tonight Ms saying that he
believes that Mr. Kdwards died as the re.
suit or a stroke of aponlexv.
The autopsy probably will be performed
tomorrow morning. .Medical Kxaminer
liarllett. who viewed the body, refused to
make a Kiatemejit concerning the probable
cause of death.
