HUNTING FOK TRACES OF POISON. Two Bodies of Mon Treated by Dr. Kremion Will Bo Examined Chemically. (Special to Tim WorM.) BAT/TIMOUK, Feb. 12.—Upon the result of the chemical unaylsis now belny rnado upon the resurrected Htornach, liver find kidneys oC John Forro, the German shoemaker, depends the further Investigation oC tho police Into the career of Dr. J. D. Kremien, now in jnil the- charge of: forging POITC'H will. Jt hns be'on also practically decided to tixhurne the body of Karl Muller, the saloon-keeper, in whose barroom the will IH said to have been forged, and who, signed H an one of the witnesses, the other wit news being Midler's wife. M tiller died very unexpectedly on July of lust year 1 , and the length of time inlervcninfir, together with the fact that the body was embalmed, Incline tho authorities to the belief that, even if the man wore poisoned, they will not be able to secure any reliable evidence oi! thi.s from an autopsy. A very significant confe.ssion was unintentionally made by Mrs. Kremien, who, in reply to tin; question whether her husband kept doys, answered: "Yes; but they wore fen* his own pki'.iHUre. lie never poisoned any of the do^y." Her interviewer bad said no thinsr of poisoning, though the question wan suggested by tlie statement made by neighbors that Kremien had been experimenting with poison on dogs that he kept for that puropse. The proposed exhuming of Muller's body has opened the moxiths of some of hln neighbors as to tho peculiar circumstances surrounding his death. Muller whs but thirty-live years of age at the time oi! his death, ami was one of the moat healthy ;ind robust looking living in tho West I'Cnd. He was over (i feet tall, and weighed, riot lesn than 1100 pounds. Two days before his death l;e was as hearty looking a« any one would \vtnh to see. A day or two pro- coding last Fourth of July Muller went to the butchers' picnic, at I-iohr's Park. The cleric of Mr. I.lentx, who has a store opposite Muller's saloon, was Eilso there, and he had known Muller. ]u the afternoon ho say/ Muller sitting !>y liimself. taking no part in thu festivities. "J ankod him," he said; " 'Knrl, what Is the matter with you? Your face IK ns white as paper.' 'Yes,' answered Muller, 'I am very sick.' " Ileritsi took him home, and on the fol- lowmg day Muller died. Dr. Krernlen attended him and gave .lienlx the certificate of his dentil from pneumonia. This wan all Mr. ilenttf know ol! the case, except that he was very much .surprised at Mulk-r's sudden taking off, as he was such a fine, healthy looking man. Forre's housckeepor states that the shoemaker for some time previous to Mis death was not satisfied with Kre- mlen's treatment, and wanted another phvplclan, but that Kremien would not permit it. Father Linrahaw/,, nf the Holy Ro.'jury Polish Catholic Church, say'.s that Kremien was in a great measure responsible for the difference between him nnd his former fissMiint, Father Szoboloufiki, which led to dinscnsion in Llio church, which became so groat as to rstmlre rjollce interfcrcnco on a number of occasions, and mmlly caused tho institution of legal proceedings against O-mHnal Gibbons Viy the disnO'ected element. Kremion was Sxobolouffki's jihysi- ciati, and Father Ijumbnsx told him Kromien waa nut treating him rlglit. Sznbolouskl told Kromlon \vhat T-Jara- bttsz had said, and this led to the row. The account of tho alleged crimes of Dr. .T. D, Kremion, of Baltimore, published in The World ycsuirdny, and his •supposed personal resemblance lo Dr. Henry C. F. Meyer, the alleged poisoner, now in the Tombs In this city, have i-,\> 2ltod considerable interest. Dr. Krernlen s not only accused of forgery and per- lury in his efforts to gel; possession cif iho estate of the late .John Forro, but is ilso suspected of having caused the death of the latter. The Dr. Meyer who s in tho Tombs and his counsel assert :hut Dr. Kremien is none other than [-/udwig Brandt, whom Dr. Meyer in charged with having murdered.
