The New York Sun's London cable of Saturday says:
Investigations in relation to the poisoning case in Liverpool, in which Mrs. Maybrick, an American, is charged with killing her husband with small doses of arsenic, are this week favorable to the accused woman. It is shown quite clearly that Mr. Maybrick at one time poisoned with arsenic several troublesome dogs in the neighborhood, which would show he had arsenic about him. A Liverpool druggist has admitted that he had made up doses of arsenic for Mr. Maybrick, sometimes forty grains at a time. Mrs. Maybrick's mother, the Baroness Roque, is working with wonderful energy in her daughter's behalf, and has aroused universal sympathy in her efforts to prove the accused woman's innocence.
