TO HOLD A SWOPE INQUEST.
Coroner Will Act Whether Poison Is
Found or Not.
"Before a preliminary examination can be held, in case an arrest is made, a coroner's inquest must be made," said Dr. B. H. Zwart, county coroner, last night. "Of course an arrest can be made before the inquest.
"I am planning to have an inquest for Colonel Swope, whether or not poison is found by the Chicago specialists. As to Chrisman Swope, I have made no plans. In either case I will await the results from the post-mortem examination in Chicago. Unless poison is found in Chrisman Swope's stomach I will probably not order an inquest. If the latter inquest is held we will have to go into the charges of alleged inoculation with typhoid bacilli.
"No inquest will be ordered for James Moss Hunton. I am assured by the family physician that he died from natural causes."
