Obtained Statement by
Pi;VMOUTH, Mass.. March 30.-Mr.
Jenqle Eaton was locked up In tho
county Jailhere today pending a. hearing
on the chargo that ahe murdered hor
husband, near Admiral Joseph Cllles
Katon, by poisoning him.
8he was brought hcte from Hlnghum,
where the had been arraigned earlier In
the day following lier nrrest. Through
hef counsel she pleaded not guilty,
waived the reading of the complaint and
wa held without ball for examination
It lias not been determined whether
the inquest Into the. nudden death of the
admiral will be resumed. It waa Inti
mated tonight that Mrs. Katon might
not be brought to trial. The possible
appointment ot' a commission to pass
upon her sanity was suggested.
District Attorney Darker had a con
ference today to Boston with Chief Jus
tice Aiken of the superior court. It waa
th6ughl his errand might be in connec
tion with the convening or a special
grand Jury to consider the case.
When Mrs. Eatort, who Is a stout wo
man 45 years of age, entered tha Jail
here ahe waa dressed In the black ault
she wore at her husband's funeral. A
mourning veil partly hid her face. She
had been weeping, but generally main,
talned the composure that has charac
terised her bearing from the first.
Died at Ills Home.
Admiral Eaton died In his bed at the
home In Norwell, where ho ttved with
hla "wife, her mother. Mrs. George Har
rison, and his stepdaughter. Dorothy
Atnsworth- Th death waa unexpected
apd due, the other members of the family
saJd. to an attack of Indigestion, which
followed a too hearty meal of roast pork.
Circumstances led to an Investigation,
and according to a statement by District
Attorney Barker today, evidence of nr.
Ronlcal poisoning waa discovered by Prof.
William V. Whitney, who analysed tho
Ppntenta of tho etomaoh. Tho formal re
P&rt of Prof. Whitney has not been maihi
and the nrreat was prdered upon a verbal
communication to thu district attorney.
For ten days the authorities havo
known that the admiral died of arsenical
poisoning and their efforts have been
directed to finding whero and by whom
tho poison waa obtained and to laying
bare tho homo life of the Baton family.
In the first quest they have not been
successful, tha district attorney says.
Along the second line of Inquiry a wealth
of ovldence has been furnished by friends
of tho family and neighbors. The ad
mlral and his wife, who was twenty
years his Junior, did not always agree, it
Is said, regarding those who should ho
received at their home. '

LONDON, March 20.-Two "arson
squads" of militant suffragettes suc
ceeded In destroying Jl.000,000 worth of
property early today.
One squad burned down the country
residence of Lady Amy White at Engle
field Green, near the Thames. The other
squad fired the buildings of the Golf
club nt Wrston-Buper Mare, a fashion
able summer watering place In Somerset
shire. Lady White Is the widow of Field Mar
shall Sir George White, the hero of Lady
Smith In the Transval war. Her house
was a big mansion standing In spacious
grounds. The flume w.r rflicnvnrr!
at 1 o'clock this morning and at that
time had such a start that the efforts of
the local fire brigade were hopeless.
Traces of oils and tnflamable materials
Were fnnnit umltanH ihniii h hnn..
while around the grounds were papers
inscribed "Stop Tortunlng Our Comrades
In Prison!" "Votes for Women!" "By
Kind Permission of Charles Hobhouse!"
The last being a reference to the recent
taunt of Chancellor Hobhouse that
"Women lack the real revolutionary
spirit of men who burn and sack In sup
port of their cause."
Two women on bicycles were seen In
tho neighborhood half an hour before the
fire waa discovered.
The house was unoccupied.
The incendariea Of t Yin frntv tin
also escaped. There are many suffrn-
