MAY REGULATE .TEItSEY TIPS.
John 0. Schenk's Physician
on the Stand.
MEDICINE WAS TAMPERED WITH!
Dr. F. L. Hupp Testifies That He Found
Arsenic In the Water That Was
Being Given to the West Vir
Wheeling, W. Vn Jnn. 11. A thou
sand persons, the majority of them
women, besieged the criminal court at
the trial of Mrs. Luurn Sehenk, ami
cd of poisoning Her husband, and when
court olllcials opened the door there
was a crush that swept down tho
nlsles mid pushed everything movable
against' the judge's bench. The court
oillcers who attempted to stem the
tide were swept aside, and it was only
after one' woman had narrowly escap
ed being trampled to death and an
other's pocket had been picked that
quiet was restored. The women fought
harder than the men, uud when the
smoke of (he miniature riot had clear
ed away all the best seats were occu
pied by women.
Dr. Frank Lomoyne Hupp, a gradu
ate of Columbia university of New
York and for a number of years con
necli'd with one of the Now York hos
pitals, was on the stand. He it was
who first discovered the arsenic in
the lltlila water and medicine that
was being administered to John O.
Sehenk by his wife.
Dr. Hupp testified that he was called
lo attend Mr. Scheldt Oct. 13, and on
going to the Schonk residence lie mot
Mrs. Sehenk, who told him that her
husband was very ill. The doctor
prescribed for him.
The witness said that he continued
to call on Mr. Sehenk, and Oct. 10
when he visited the house he found
Mrs. Sehenk crying, with her arm
about her young son. She said to
"Doctor, perhaps I would be bettei
satislled If you would let him die."
Dr. Hupp said further that In the
quinine he prescribed for Mr. Scheldt
there was one-nlnlh of a grain of ar
senic. "On a later visit to the house." Dr.
TIupp said. "I made an examination
of the wafer that was being given
him and found thai It had a strong
aromatic perfume. I managed to ob
tnin a sample of tills water. This was
bottled, sent to the Johns Hopkins hos
pital at Baltimore, and there an anal
ysis of it was made. Tt revealed ar
senic In the water.
"Later I also found that the medi
cine I loft for Mr. Sehenk to take was
changed in color. I sent samples of it
away and analysis revealed the pres
ence of arsenic. Finally I ordered that
Mr. Sehenk be reuuned to the North
"Wlille he was a patient there I
found that his medicine was tampered
with. Mrs. Sehenk complained to me
about his being at the hospital and
said that she would much rather have
him at homo. I told her that his con
dition was such that he should remain
at the hospital. She then said that she
would have him brought homoherself.
"It was then that I called In Albert
Sehenk', brother of John; Dr. T. M.
Hasltlns and Prosecuting Attorney
Ilandhiu. Immediate action was de
cided on and Mrs. Sehenk was arrest
ed. I met her in the office of the pros
ecuting attorney and she said to me
with great surprise and agitation,
'What do you think, doctor, some of us
are accused of poisoning John.' 1 told
her it was no great surprise to me.
"I broke the news to John O. Sehenk
(hat his wife had been nrrested for at
tempting to poison him. lie became
very excited, and for some little time
his condition was exceedingly danger
ous, lie has continued to get better,
but nt the present time he Is still far
frem being a well man."
Mrs. Sehenk, nttlred in the same
blue dress and gray toque, was In very
good humor She paid the closest at
tention to everything that was said
and several times prompted her counsel.
