Y., July 26.-Dr. Arthur Warren Waite, awaiting electrocution here for the murder of his father-in-law, Oolui E. Peck, of Grand Hapids, Mich., was found in his cell in the "death house" last night bleeding from a wound in his chest made in the | shape of a cross.

It is presumed that when he was taken out for exercise in the courtyard he picked it up when the vigilance of his guard was relaxed and concealed it until he returned to his cell. Waite was removed to the prison hospital, but he steadfastly refused to answer questions. The prison authorities believe if he had intended to kill himself he would have inflicted the wound elsewhere than on his chest. The injury is not serious.
