WAS ENOUGH TO KILL A MAN ANALYSIS SHOWS DBUO WAS lAEl^K BY HDL ThMiT Tfcat He Dlpd of ConrnKsIon of Bnia Traced Back to the Effects of Morphine. Kansas City, Nov. 4.—"^Tien my cx amlnatlon was completed I found mor pbine In the stomach and elsewhere. The amount I found was enough to kill a man.—nr. W. M. Cross, of the Perkins Analysis Commission." The physicians appointed by the federal court In Topeka as an expert commission to ascertain whether L. H Peddns, who fell from the roof of his home in Lawrence, Kansas. Juno 1907. bad taken poison, have had their final Joint consultation and the report to the federal court will be made todif. Dr. Walter M. Cros.s. ciiy chemist, and one of the experts of the commis- sioD, sidd last night: "Saturday night I washed up all o my baskets and test tubes which hare been used In the examination of Per kins* stomach . This morning I ha'i ny last consultation with Drs. Frank Hall and J. W. Freeman, during which I gave them a detailed report of my findings. At that consultation the answers to the questions propounded by the federal court, there were four of them, were put down in writing anc were explicit in every detail. The were mailed to the court today." When asked concerning his findings as to the contents of the stomach, he answered very cautiously. 'I want I understood that I know nothing aboui the reat of the case before I say any thing further. Nothing which I sa:' now can havo any bearing on wha' the result of the lnv ««sfIpaiion3 as t' whether or not the Perkins family wij get the full amount of in.=;urancp. I Is merely just a plain, bare fact. He Foond Morphine. "When my examination w.ns com pleted I found morphine In ilio stom ach and elsewhere. The anKViint found was enough to kill a r.i.in. Th fact that it was where If was i.n a' nolute proof that the morphine wa taken into the system before death How long before It is impo.<?sible t' state. I do not want lo be quoted a saying that Mr. Perkins died from a- overdose of morphine. That is fo the court to determine after It ha read our report. But the morphia was present. It was the only drug o poison which I could find during m analysis of the stomach and it wa< as I said, in sufficient quantity to kll a person." Wben asked whether there were an^ physical conditions apparent whic' woald have indicated violent death, hi said that be wa.s not sure but that th- doctors had found gne injury whicl might have been the frause of his deaf and which was made by his fall fror the roof. "But," he said, "(hat injury was no about the head. On examining th brain a cerebral concussion was founr" This led some of the doctors (o believ^ that the fall had kilJed Perkins, bu" that belief was short-lived. If a mai wants to commit suicide and have th< world believe that his death was du< to an accident, let him fill himself full of morphine and then climb to the top of some high fiiiUding." Hlstorr ttf the C MK Lucius H. Perkins fell from the roof of "Upton Court," his residence in Lawrence, Kansas, oh the night of .Tune 1, the present year. He was picked up unconscious, and the first reiwrts of the matter were to the effect that he had accidentally fallen from the building. It was not until September 14 that Judge Smith McPher.son of the United States circuit Court issued an order for the exhuming of the body. The order was made upon the showing of attorney."! for the Mutual Life Insurance company of New York tliat Perkins had bought poi.son the afternoon of June 1. and that his estate was utterly unable to yield enough income for the payment of his life insurance premium.s. His insurance in all. most of which he had taken out only a short time before his death, amounted to |.';40.onn, and required the payment of 130,000 In annual preinlums. Lucius Perkins was one of the best known and most widely respected attorneys In Kansas. He had for ten years been a member of the law exam- amining board at Kansas university and W.1S an ex-president of the Kansas Slate Bar Association. He left a widow and three sons, Rollin, Clement and Lucius. Jr. He and his brother, Frank M. Perkins, owned and managed the Atlas nnilding and Loan Association of Lai-rencc. Lucius had been a resident of Lawrence since 1877. COMMISSIONERS IN SESSION. Spent theOay Considering Bills, and Protests to Taxes.
