MARGARET SWOPE ON TH EST AND

of Typhoid, the Treatment from
Dr. Hyde and Convulsion
KANSAS CI TV. Mo., April 15 There
frax nothing harmful about the strychnine
tnl(5 which Colonel Swope wai accustomed
' to taking, testified O. H. Gentry, an In
dependence druggist, In the Hyde murder
trial today. This druggist filled the pre
scription fur James Moss Hunton for many
years. Hunton Induced Colonel Swops to
take the medicine.
"Tlil.s, ald Mr. Gentry, la a general one
for building up the system and adding red
corpuscles to the blood. It contains a
small amount of strychnine, but Is harm
less." A he talked he held In hi hand a slx
ounc vlal of the medicine. Proof that he
liuJ faith In IiIh own goods was not lack
ing, for, occasionally, he uncoiked the bot
tle and took a drink of the contents.
Hard Blow for Defense.
Besides compounding the tonic, Mr.
Gentry isald he gold Mr. Hunton many
other kinds of medicine which went into
the Swope house. None of them contained
cyanide of potassium or other poison in
dangerous quantities, he said. Dr. Hyde
wrote some of these prescriptions. On .De
cember 9, however, said the druggist, he
sold to some member of the Swope family
two tubes of hypodermic strychnine.
The testimony of Mr. Gentry was gener
ally conceded to be a hard blow to the de
fense. By proving the colonel's habit of
taking the tunic, the defense expected to
explain the alleged presence of strychnine
in the body.
Dr.' Hyde faced the first of his alleged
victims shortly before noon today, when
Miss Margaret Swope took the stand.
The physician Is Indicted on three counts,
charging bin) with poisoning her.
No witness that has been before the Jury
hua Interested Dr. Hyde and his wife so
much as this girl. Both followed the wit
ness closely and watched her carefully.
The testimony of Miss Swope this morn'
Ing was uninteresting In the main. She bad
just begun to discuss her illness when court
adjourned for the jaoon recess.
" illlw Sltoiif "im Stand,
Margaret Swope was slow In reaching the
court room this afternoon, and as a result
the trial was somewhat delayed In getting
Entering the. court room, the girl walked
near to her sister. Mrs. Hyde, and looked
at her. Many thought the two would speak,
as the younger girl gazed longlnvly at her
sister, but Mrs. Hyde only bit her Hp and
stared straight ahead.
Miss (''wops said Dr. Hyde was the first
physician to diagnose her illness as typhoid
fever. The stale attempted to show that
this dlago!s differed from that made by
Dr. G. T. Twyman, but the court would not
permit the witness to testify as to this
phase of the case.
The witness then told of the giving of the
hypodermic Injection to her by Dr. Hyde.
"It was almost dark In the room," she
said In a low and faltering voice. "There
was but one light burning dimly. My
surge wan out..
"Dr. Hyde came Into my room, and, com
ing to my bedside, said he was going to
give me a hypodermic.
"He took my arm and rolled up my

tared my arm. He gave me the Injection
ind then left the room."
"Did he feel your pulse before he gave
you the hypodermic?" was askea.
"No," she answered.

you the hypodermic?""

DATE FOR ARGUMENTS IN
PACIFIC MERGER CASE
Time and Place for Hearing; Will Be
Set by Circuit Court at May'
WASHINGTON, April 23. The hearing
of the arguments In the government case
for the dissolution of the merger of the
Southern Pacific and Union Pacific rail
roads will take place probably about Oc
tober I. The selection of a definite date
end place will be made by the Judges of
the Eighth circuit at St. Paul In May. An
nouncement to that effect was made at the
Department of Justice this morning.
C. A. Severance has represented the gov
ernment In the case, which Is a proceeding
to dissolve the merger of the Southern Pa
cifio and Union Pacific railroads on the
ground that it was a violation of the Sher
man anti-trust act.
The positive announcement of the de
termination to fix a time for the hearing
of the case apparently disposes of reports
which have been reevaled frequently that
the government had decided to abandon the
proceedings against those two railroads.
The expectation Is that the arguments
will be heard at St. Paul.

PARIS, Apni 25. Mr. Roosevelt was the
guest of the city of Paris today in the
magnificent Hotel De Vllle, or town hall,
which has played so conspicuous a part In
In honor of Mr. Roosevelt's visit tho
Hotel De Vllle wis decorated with Ameri
can and French flags. The former presi
dent, accompanied by American Ambassa
dor Bacon and M. Jusserand, French am
bassador at Washington, was received at
the entrance with great formality by M.
Carcn, president of the municipal council;
M. Deselves, prefect of .he Seine; M.
Lamque, president of the general council
of the Seine, and M. Leplne, prefect of
police. '- ' ''
By thesa h was conducted to the Salles
Des Deliberations, where he attended a
niton of the city fathers, after which he,
Sighed hla namo In the "Llvre De 'Or" and
mad a tour of the building.
An Immense crowd in the streets ac
claimed the former president as he entered
and left the building. From the Hotel' De
Vllle, Mr. Roosevelt went to the Carnavalet
museum, which contains the most Inter
esting documents of Paris relative to the
history of the city, and which were shown
by George S. Caen, the curator, who is the
author of a serins of works on "Old Paris."
Reception la Flattering.
Mr. Roosevelt's reception at the Hotel
Da Vllle was flattering. The vestibules
and grandstands had been decorated and
the guests escorted to the council chamber
through lines of uniformed republican
guards. As he entered the chamber he was
given an ovation from the floor and from
the galleries, which were crowded with
Among the prominent persons present
were Premier Briand and other members
of the cabinet, a representative of Presi
dent Fallleres and many members of Par
liament. The speeces of Mm. Caron,
Deselves, Lampue and Leplne were tributes
to Colonel Roosevelt.
In extending the formal welcome to tho
city M. Caron said that Mr. Roosevelt
loomed up to Paris as "what we call a
ronn being courageous; you have mastered
yourself by ruflection, because though pas
slonately loving a struggle, you love more
passionately conciliation and peace; be
cause you are a patriot, to whom your
country owes great achievements, and be
cause you represent the conviction that
the law of work Is the fundamental law
of being, a thought you have so brilliantly
developed In asseitlng that the man will
fully Idle and the woman willfully sterile
have no right plaoe In a healthy, robust
and vigorous community."
M. Leplne declared that the demonstra
tions made by the French people In honor
of Mr. Roosevelt showed that ho had
touched their hearts. "It Is a mistake,"
he said, "to believe that Paris Is skeptical
and frivolous. Benrath the ashes tho fire
burns and the soul of tho people is as full
of Idealism as In the most glorious days
of our history. Paris respects In "you the
great republic to which you belong and
