INTEREST IN CRAFT MURDER.
Autopsy to Determine Whether or Not
He Was Given Knock-Out Drops.
New York, Sept. 30. An nutopsy
was performed yesterday on tho body
of James Craft, who was murdored
early Saturday in' tho Empire cafe
on Twenty-ninth street, but the sur
geon, It was announced, had not been
able to determine whether or not
there wore traces of chloral or other
poison in tho stomach. A chemical
analysis of tho contents will be made
to determine the point.
Tho point of interest is whether
knock-out drops had been given Mr.
Craft before ho was attacked with the
cleaver. If traces of chloral were
found In the stomach, tho police as
sert this would show a plot to rob
tho victim. Mrs. Craft, wife of tho
murdered man, said today that Mr.
Craft had carried quito a sum of
money when he left home.
Maggie Moore, alias May Turner,
and Ida Craven, tho head waiter at
tho Empire, who wore arrested as
witnesses, wore arraigned today and
remanded to custody of tho coroner.
New York, Sept. 30. The inquest
of Captain Craft, butchered Saturday
in the Empire cafe by Manager To
