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 March 21. 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.

"By Kind Permission of Charles Hobhouse!"

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.

Iteasty of Jefferson also pleaded for Iho Poor man, who had to depend upon a mlsrabtc wage, perhaps, to sustain him self and family. Mncfarland said: "In a lonely manger In far away Bethlehem, 1,913 yearn ago. was born a man who uttered those vsords tvhieh have been the motto of the world, 'Do unto others as you would that they should do to you." . The poor man who has a wife and children to support Is In need of thj assistance of thoso more hap pily situated, and t do not hellrve llmt I the law should be brought to bear to niaKo mm suffer.

The speaker thought that no man who was honest and really tried to do what was right would over be com pelled to pay a bill If his clrcumstancea were such that he could not. Bobertson of Holt moved an amend ment that tho garnishment only apply to debts Incurred for food and clothing, which was adopted.

Who Pays Taxes. Dodge of Douglas wanted the senators to know that he was a taxpayer of Douglas county. Sold he: "I pay more taxes In one year than Grossman has paid In his whole life." 'I could say the samo thlnir." hnut.rl Grossman, "If I had married a million aire." "I want this sonate to understand that I havo forgotten more about taxntlon than rGossman has ever known," re taliated Dodge. "I don't think It Is fair that a man who has been unfortunato should be twitted of his poverty before this body." shouted Grossman, "and I object to such personal flings." "I wish to say that every cent I own has been galnedd by my own personal exertions." said the blond senator. "I came to Omaha n poor boy and what I have I have earned and none of It has been accumulated other than by my own hands." At one time Grossman. Dodce mul Macfarland were on their feet at the same time and tho chair was compelled to call for order. Placek Sarcastic. Placek told he did not live In DourU. county, but he believed that If the offi. olals of that county neeJcd their salaries raised that the county commissioners were the men who should be called upon to do It. "The Omaha bunch come down here very session pleading for home rule." said the Saunders county senator, "and now here Is a chance to put a little -of that Into effect and not be taking up the time of the senate asklns- for some. thing they can take care of themselvo nnd which Is of no Interest to the state outside of Douglas county," Another bill which brousht out rnnilit. erable discussion and whloh was responsi ble for the weerlng of the Dawes county statesman was Bushee's bill provldln that 10 per cent of wages were subject to carrlshment.
