Found Dead in Hotel, was Mur

vho was found dead iifhis rooms in

l;elief of Coroner Horburger as ex
pressed at opening of the inquest

The coroner said he was convinced

evidence to show that the murderer
is a prominent witness at the in
Who is the Murderer?
In opening the inquest Coronor Har
berger told the jury that before corn
in? into the court that morning he had
been "abused and villified by an im
portant witness in the case." Contin
uing. he said:
"The relatives and police believe
Adams committed suicide, but as coro
nor I believe and expect to show you
that Arthur J. Adams was murdered
and that the murderer is an import
ant witness in this case, who will ap
pear before you."
Following is the list of the witness
es to be subpoened at the inquest:
Police Captain Burfiend. W. E. D.
Stokes, proprietor of the Ansonia ho
tel: Mrs. Adams, widow of the alleged
suicide; Albert J. and Louis Adams, his
sons; Dr. Thornly, house physician at
the Ansonia hotel; William Dunlevie,
elerk at the Ansonia; Edward Mill,
bell boy; G. W. Robbins, and William
H. Thomas, Adam's partner and
friend. - - « -
Prior to the opening of the inquest
Mr. Stokes called at Corner Harburg
er's office and asked the corner why
Harvey J. Williams, the bell boy at
the hctel had not been summoned.
"it is not too late now," replied the
corner. "I shall have subpoena serv
ed at once."
Mr. Stokes answered that he
thought it was pretty late to take ac
tion. anil then follwed a sharp discus
sion between the two men.
A Later Report.
In his closins address to the jury
Coroner Harburger said all the evi
dence pointed conclusively to suicide.
"I have my own opinion on the sub
ject," said he. "but we must go by
the evidence presented here."
On the suggestion of Judge Olcott,
the coroner withdrew his opening re
marks and added that he would expect
Mr. Stokes to withdraw the abusive
things he had said in the argument
which preceded the opening of the in
quest. At that. Mr. Stokes came for
ward and expressed himself as being
extremely sorry for having addressed
a public official as he had done. The
coroner and chief witness shook hands
just as the jury reported its verdict.
At the conclusion of the inquest the
coronor's jury returned a verdict that
Adams came to his death by suicide.

The football team returned yester
day from Philadelphia, where they
played the University of Pennsylvania
Saturday. Much satisfaction is felt
over the way the Pennsylvania game
turned out and our prospects have
brightened considerably. After the
football team had failed to score on

Pennsylvania game would be a walk
over, and so we were glad to know
that the team had made such a plucky
stand, though very much outweighed.
Our hopes of yet turning out a win
ning team have risen very much.
The team will sustain a loss how

Syracuse, N. Y.„ Oct 9. —Chancellor
Jas. R. Day, of Syracuse University
who called President Roosevelt an An

against hunters and fishermen.

bag of game. I want to say that I
am too old-fashioned to approve of this
kind of sport."
The Chancellor said the man who
kills animals for fun is not doing God's
will. He said he did not see how men
could have the heart to kill innocent
birds and animals that are commonly
short for sport.

Salisbury, Oct. 9. —The strike on the

is the all-absorbing topic in Salisbury

This strike means a loss in wages to
Salisbury and Spencer of more than
$15,000 a month. There is no new de

That the company's engines and roll

some of it useless for the time, is ad
