Then the story was told of the poi
soning of Barnet. His body was dis
interrred and an examination of the
powder taken before his death proved
that tho samo poison which caused
the- death of Mrs. Adams was Instru
mental in causing the death of Bar-
net. For weeks tho police -were at a
loss for a clew to tho sender of tho
poison and tho motive of the double
murder. Cornish said from tho first
that ho suspected Molineux, but tho
police had absolutely no information
on which to base this suspicion. Then

packages. A sample of Molineux's
handwriting was obtained and experts
declared that he had addressed the
poison packages. It was on this evi
dence almost entirely that Molineux
was convicted and sentenced to death.
Following the conviction, the family
and friends or tho condemned man
through tho efforts of eminent coun
sel succeeded in staying the execution
for more -than two years, while Moli
neux remained In tho condemned
chamber of Sing Sing prison. Finally
a second trial was obtained, since
which time Molineux has been con
fined In the Tombs.

In the athletic circles of New York
