ANOTHER MAN IN THE CASE
One ritzsimnions Alsu Loved Annie
STKAXCE TALE OP DITLICITY
I he MurJered tilrl Said to Have Had Two
Men at Her Kent-A Jeweler
from West Chester fur
Philadelphia. March 2G. Another fea
ture in the case of Annie MeC.rutli
cropped out today. It appears that,
while practically living upon the boun
ty of one man, she was playing fast unit
loose with another. She passed as the1
niece of one and the promised wife of
the other. She was not averse to titrtu
lion, and It was through her propensity
for his that she met the man to wlioti
she was engaged to be married.
This man was not Lungdou. Ilia
name Is r'itzslminons. and he Is a Jew
eler In YVest Chester, pa. How the two
met is best told by Coroner Ashbridni?.
The latter was seen today by a report-!-,
and-this is what he said:
"The girl had known Langdon for
some time, an J lust summer she made
some sort of ail excuse to her parents
and went to Atlantic City. There li
pier l.aiiKdon. and they went to a cot
tage in one of the fusliionuhle und ex
clusive portions of thu Island. Then
they apparently occupied separate
looms, and weru known as uncle uml
"They were quiet, modest In th-lr
manner, und made some few friends lit
the select circle In which they moved;
but after awhile the gentlemen uln.ut
the pluve beg a,n to hint that the coiile
Were not what -they represented them
selves to be. There was a certain sort
of coldness evinced toward them, ami
tlli'illy they left the house, ostensibly
on their way to Philadelphia.
"The two enjoyed themselves III tlie
usual fashion In vogue at the seaside;
they went out sailing, took ocean trip
and were seen together often. It wax
wlille the girl was on the board walk
at Atlantic City that her propensity for
llti ting resulted In her capture of Fltse
sliiimous. the West Chester Jeweler.
FIT8IM M ONS PKOPOS Kl .
AVithin a week after she met him Kltz
simmons had proposed marriage to h-r.
was accepted, gave her a diamond rinjr.
as evidence of the betrothal, and vIimi
she left the city with Jier 'uncle' bude
her ail affectionate farewell, but not
in tlie presence or the aforesaid uncle-.'
For some reason there was an estrange
ment between tlie two nnd the engage
ment was broken off. Shortly after
wards, however, a reconciliation n--curred,
und at the girl's suggestion
FitzslmmotiM took the engagement rinar
and had the diamond placed In another
setting. At that time the dute for their
marriage was fixed for June 23 next."
Coroner Ashbrldge did not know
what-had caused the trouble between
the (,'lrl and Fitstsimmoiis. but from
other sources It is said that tlie latter
became aws.ee jif betv true relations
with Langdon. He unbruided her for
her duplicity and left her In anger.
. -Afterwards the girl wrote to liim ami
effected the reconciliation. The ring
was changed to suit her taste, and nil
the time Fltzsiniiiions und I. unction
were both being fooled. l.aii(tdon
thought the girl was true to him mid
so did FiUsimiuoiis. Lungibiii evi
dently learned how the girl was acting;
ami to this knowledge Is ascribed the
cause of the quarrels in the corridor of
tin- Drcxel building.
Tlie ring which Pitzslmmr.ns krvo
the gill wus round in Langdon's porket
when he was urrested. Whether he
took It from the dead body of the Kirl
or she gave It to him before shedft-d.
has not yet been determined-at lesu t
neither the police nor tin- coroner will
talk on the subject.
Fitzsimmons is said to be a Jeweler
in West Chester In very well-to-do -ir-
cuuistances. lie had been married
twice-before he met Annie MiCratli.
It hus been ascertained that when the
physicians made the autopsy on the
body they found two blood clots near
the heurt. When Coroner AshbridKe
was usked about this he laughed heart
ily. "There is nothing whatever to In
dicate that the girl died from heart
disease. That organ was perfectly
normal. I can say this because I kuow
what I am talking about. Y'ott report
ers and others have your suppositions.
So have I, but I cannot say anything
as to the cause of deuth, simply Id
ealise I know nothing nbout it. Wo
will not know until Dr. I.elYmun makes
known all that he has learned by his
chemical unulysis of the different por
tions of the body which have been sub
mitted to him for examination."

I.angdon was taken from fiis r-t-H
ngnin this afternoon and escorted down
stairs to Captain Miller's room. There
he was closeted with Lnwyer Barlow
and Captain Miller. , The cunfereneo
lasted nearly two hours, and at Its
conclusion l.angdou was sent back to
his ctll. Dr. S. D. McDowell, bang
don's family physician, visited the i Ih
oner and found him suffering with a
severe cold, which was contracted since
Otherwise Langdon was In excellent
health and hus not apparently worried
over the grave charge that has heen
made against him. Dr. McDowell, pre
scribed for the prisoner nnd then re
quested that Langdon be placed In nu

comforts thut are not usually Riven to
Dr. Andrews will have n cell fitted tip
with a bed nnd other furniture this
evening and tonight Langdon will rest
as comfortably as he could at the hotel.
Attorney Arthur Moore, who repre
sents Langdon, nnd Coroner Ashbrldge
had a long conference this afternoon
nbout the case. No steps were taken
by Lnngdon's counsel towards seem ln
the releuse of their client on ball.
At present Langdon Is held merely
upon suspicion, lint should the mi-oner

day evening Jacob Snyder and his wife,
who live on Kast Main street, this
city, were tuken suddenly III with ar
senical poisoning. Jacob died lust Tues
day, but Mrs. Snyder lingered along
until early this morning, when she died.
The Snyders' only daughter. Mrs.
Martha Whittnker. who Is suspected of
having administered the poison, has
been under the surveillance of the po-'
lice since yesterday morning. She was
debarred from the presence of her par
ents by order of the physician, Dr.
Swartout, on last Sunday, at which
time it was first ascertained that they
had been poisoned. Mrs. YYhittuker
was practicully a prisoner in the sitting
room below the room whenvlierjuother
lay suffering; all day yesterday, u po
liceman standing guard on the outside
of the building by order of Coroner
1 larding, who hus the matter In charge.
When Mrs. Snyder was found to lie In
a dying condition at C o'clock lust even
lug the daughter was admitted to her
presence. As soon as she entered the
room the mother called out: "tb-t her
mil of my sight." The daughter did not
leave the room, but remained where
her mother could not see her. W'licn
tlie mother died Mrs. W'hlttaker
stvooned ami fell to the floor.
Shortly after Mrs. Snyder was seized
with nausea and Dr. Swurtotit was
hastily summoned. He found her suf
fering evidently from the efTerts of
poison and udminlstered antidotes. The
physician was auain culled tit 7 o'clock
and later ut 11 o'clock. At Ulmjii it wus
said the woman was dying. Corouor
Harding took an ante mortem state
ment from Mrs. Snyder on Titesduy,
the substance of which he will not make
known until the Inquest, u Jury for
which was empanelled this morning.
Autopsies have been performed on the
bodies ot ltotli the victims und the.
stomach, intestines nnd other organs
showed violent irritant poisoning by
arsenic. These will be sent to a New
York chemist to be analyzed.
