Dr Jameson At His Bedside Attack
of Heart Failure Buried
Cape Town, March 28. Cecil Ithodes
died peacefully at 0:07 p. m. He slept
during the afternoon, tint his breathing
became more difficult and his strength
perceptibly diminished. Ho was con
scious until 0:05 p. m., when he mut

The Immediate cause of his death was
tno successive attacks of heart fail

son, Dr. J. W. Smart, the Commission

llhodes, director of signaling of the
South African field force, and Mr. Wal

his brother and some of the others

The death of llhodes came as no
great surprise to those few who saw
i!i tiling of him during his last visit
to London during the winter. Whether
It was duo to his experiences during
the long siege of KImberley or the ac
cumulated anxieties regarding the war
In South Africa, with an accompanying
change of feeling In England toward
him. theie Is n doubt he was almost
completely broken down within the
last two years. Even his appearance
changed. Ills once finely chiseled face
had become bloated, nnd his always
huge frame tilled out until ho became
so stout as to make walking a matter
of difficulty. Ho was further attacked
with seero heart troubles, during
which he maintained the stoicism
which marked his cxtraoidlnary ca
reer. Nor did he allow his bodily ail
ments to lnterfero with business.
Among his associates' In tho city hu
never mentioned them, nor did he per
mit them to be mentioned to him. Up
to the last Rhodes kept a firm grip on
nil those vast South African Interests
created end controlled by him. Except
that he was more Irritable and more
dictatorial, thero was no outward
change In his method of handling men,
business and empires,

High Sheriff Drown has received
from Chemist Sliorey a report of his
findings In the matter ot tho contents
of the stomach of Kalmana, the man
who died In Kau a few days ago under
suspicious circumstances. Cbcmlst
Storey starts out by saying:
"The stomach contained six ounces
of dark brown liquid; and adhering to
the walls of the stomach wero found
a number ot undigested seeds. Theso
seeds were Identified as those, ot Da
tura Stramonium, a somewhat common
weed herp, tho seeds of which arc poi
sonous. The brpwn liquid found In
the stomach contained a largo amount
of this seed tissue In a finely divided
' Tho stomach contents were found to
contain atropln the active principle ot
Datura Stramonium (also ot Delia
donna); also morphlno with mecontc
ncld as found in opium.
Tho nmount ot atropine In Datura
Stramonium varies, but Is usually
stated to bo nbout 0.3 per cent. Thero
was a caso of poisoning by these seeds
In Honolulu a month or two ago.
From tho presence of morphine with
meconlc acid It rs evident that the
man had taken opium some time, not
very long before death. Tho opium
generally used for smoking and eating
Is low in morphine.
In a French record of more than 700
cases ot criminal poisoning, covering
a period of twenty-one years, but three
cases are credited to this plant; whllo
thero Is ono record of 120 cases of Da
tum poisoning In India, 78 ot which
were criminal. According to the man
ner in which It Is used It lends Itself
to the production ot sudden death,
slow poisoning, or mero stupefaction
for the purposo of robbery.
It must be remembered that In a
case ot death from an alkaloid which
causes death by absorption, the por
tion of alkaloid found In tho stomach
or other organs after death la simply

Mr. Robertson, opening tho argu
ment, stated that there appeared to ho
provision In tho Hawaiian laws for
some authority to pass upon the quali
fications of a nominee for election to
tho Legislature. Different states had
an officer or board having such author
ity. It seemed to him absurd that the
Secretary of the Territory should not
have poncr, among others conferred on
him relative to elections, to pass upon
and determine the qualifications ot a
candidate who Is nominated by twenty
five electors of the district as required
by tho statutes. According to that
Idea, women nnd Infants might be
nominated, or even Chinese, It only the
nomination papers were signed by
twenty-five djily qualified electors.
Carried out n little further, there
might bo dead men nominated, or a
fictitious name placed on a ballot re
sembling tho name of a bona fide can
didate so nearly as to confuse the vot
ers. He understood that tho Secretary
of tho Territory held that he was em
powered to reject a nominee whoso
nomination contained tho signatures of
but twenty-four voters. If he had pow
er to that degree. It was only reason
able that he should have discretion to
pass upon the qualifications of a can
Udatc as set forth In the law.

Iho conference was, In tho main, an
exchange of views between tho Exec
utive npd Congressmen on the general
reciprocity proposition, and tho posi
tive statement was made, that tho-'e
wore no new developments In tho situ
fct'oii, nnd that the program adopted
by Hie Republican caucus, providing a
20 i or cent reduction on Cuban Im
ports, would bo carried out In tho
Tonight's conference was a sequence

1nt with those Congressmen opposed

llovcd one of tho propositions submit
ted by some of theso Congressmen,
providing for the repeal of tho differen
tial on refined sugar, 'came up for dis
cussion tonight, but that It was dU
missed for the reason, as stated by ono
of thnso present, that It might opn

near the point here In dispute. Thero
Is a provision of law thero that If oh-
Jectlon Is filed to a certificate of noml-
nation the candidate should be notified
of tho objection. The Secretary of
State was upheld by tho court In golns
behind tho certificate and passing upon
tho qualification of n candidate. Tho
court held that the functions of tho
Secretary of State,' although minister-
tat In nature, allowed him to exercise
discretion beyond controlling mere tor-
malltles. Although tho Missouri and
Nebraska statutes wero dissimilar In
provisions, the courts of those States
arrived at Identical conclusions re-
gardlng the discretionary power of thu
cxectitive officer having chargo of olec-
lions. Finally, Mr. Robertson con-
tended that if It wero decided thkt flio
Secretary of tho Territory had no pow-
er to prevent unlawful nominations,
then tho courts surely had the power to

before. Moie than a generation ago a

arising out of the unlawful death of her
husband. The action was opposed bo-
