and relatives who accompanied the expedition, were permitted to fall

ROARD OF HEALTH
A VOLCANIC LAKE OF LAVA
IS FORMING AT CRATER
The latest news from the Volcano House indicates that there is no
abatement in the activity which developed with such renewed force one
week ago yesterday. There is one large fountain of lava at the end of
the lake now forming in the bottom of the pit, which plays almost con
tinuously. At no time is the lake without cracks of fire radiating across
its crusted surface. There is a steady outpour of lava from a central
cone, which it is believed will eventually fill the pit. The explosions
from bursting rocks and boulders continues to be heard. Weather cool
during the day and very cold at night. There is little steam or smoke
issuing from the pit.

Just prior to departing for Sm Francisco on the S. S. Alameda
with the remains of Mrs. Jane I. Stanford, David Starr Jordan and
Timothy Hopkins of the Stanford
denying the conclusions of the local
ford was poisoned. It is 111 part as follows
"In our judgment, after careful consideration of all facts brought to
our knowledge, we are fully convinced that Mrs. Stanford's death was
not due to strychnine poisoning nor to intentional wrong doing on the
part of any one. We find in the statements of those with her in her
last moments no evidence that any of the characteristic symptoms of
strychnine poisoning were present. We think it probable that her death
was due to a combination of conditions and circumstances. Among
these we may note in connection with her advanced age, the unaccus
tomed exertion, a surfeit of unsuitable food and the unusual exposure
on the picnic party of the day in question. These conditions were, per
haps, somewhat aggravated by the presence of strychnine and other
drugs in a medicinal capsule, and possibly also by the presence of a
small amount of strychnine contained in a dose of bicarbonate of soda.
The occurrence of this strychnine in the bicarbonate of soda is as yet
unexplained. The fact that it is not in excess of usual medicinal pro
portions suggests either an error of a pharmacist or else that the combi
nation was prepared for tonic purposes. We must recognize that the
preliminary hypothesis of accidental poisoning seemed a natural one
under the extraordinary circumstances. We regard it, however, as with
out foundation and wholly incompatible with the evidence in our posses
sion." In support of their position, Dr. F. Howard Httmphris, Dr. C. B.
Wood, Dr H. V. Murray and Dr. F. R. Day have published an elaborate
statement defending their diagnosis. They affirm that the briefness of
her illness and death in a convulsion indicates strychnine poisoning'
There was no undigested food in her stomach, as shown by postmortem,
which the doctors hold refutes the acute indigestion theory. They scoff
at death from hysteria by a woman of Mrs. Stanford's age and known
mental characteristics, ami refer to corroborative evidence taken before
the coroner's inquest to support their diagnosis of the case.
Shakeup in Bureau of Education.
Superintendent A. T. Atkinson of the Department of Public Instruc
tion has resigned at the request of Governor Carter, who, in the light of
the investigation and report of the House Committee, believed that the
public service would be benefitted by his quitting the office. Atkinson
asked for a free and full investigation of his department, which has been
made by the committee, with the above result, that the Governor has at
his disposal the appointment of a new Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion. The name of Charles Baldwin has been suggested in this connec
tion, and it is expected that all of the powerful influence of H. P. Bald
win and the Maui delegation will lie exerted in his behalf. The charges
made against Superintendent Atkinson, which prompted the action of
the Governor in calling for the retignation, are as follows:
"Charges. 1. The Superintendent of Public Iiistauction has long
maintained a personal indifference as to the proper or improper perform
ance, by teachers, of their duties, and takes little, if any personal
interest in their responsibilities and advancement. His personal
presence is an unknown factor in the schools.
" 2. The cour.se of study has not been properly provided for the
schools. The one vogue has not been revised for many years pasl.
There are no printed rules or regulations to control the 400 teachers
under the department
"3, Teachers have been discharged from the Department without
"4. The Agricultural department in the school is useless.
"5. Commissioners of IJducation have rarely, if ever, for many
years visited any of the schools, or made any personal inquiries as to the
conditions prevailing 111 the schools or among the teachers, the public
schools being almost entirely tinder the control of school agents.
"fi. No provision has been made for lavatories and facilities for the
procurement of drinking water in the schools. No care exercised in this
regard even in new buildings. The new Royal School has water facili
ties for neither drinking nor fire purposes.
"7. Architectural extravagance has been indulged in in building the
schools, No care has been exercised in placing school buildings, and
the existing sanitary conditions are bad, buildings being absolutely unfit
for school purposes,"
