ADVANCES SUSTAINED NEW THEORY
A new and startling theory In con
nection with tho death of Mrs. LclanJ
Stanford waa this morning outlined by,.
High Sheriff Henry, who Intimated, in.
about as many words, that Mrs. Stan-J
ford's death nnd tho great need of
which the Stanford, Unlcrslty had for
tho ready money, which it would come
Into possession ot upon her death, were
Intimately Connected. I
"I bellovo that Dr. David Starr Jor-j
dan is a science crank," said tho High
ShcrlR this morning. "Ho is all wrap
ped up In science and thinks ot noth
ing else. His whole life Is devoted to
the advancement of science, and I do
believe that ho would stop at nothing
when he thought that the Interest oft
his sclcnco could be promoted thereby,'
"Tho Stanford university was at the
timo ot Mrs. Stanford's death, In most
urgent need of money. As a matter ot
fact, from investigations I made, whllo
I was handling the care, I found out
that the Institution was In practlcallyl
a bankrupt condition. I

died from natural causes and was not
murdered. I myself told them right to
their faces that that was what they
wcro trying to do.
"I tell you one thing," continued tba
High Bberlff, "and that Is that this
Stanford caso Is going to do anay with,
a great deal of theso endowments
tpado by wealthy people In the States
In their wilts to scientific institutions,
colleges and universities. Tbeso rich
people are not going to will large sums
to such institutions when they think
that they thereby risk having the term
ot tholr natural dajs shortened for tho
purpose of getting at the money left in

perch," said Henry further referring
to the cablegram In which Dr. Jordan
denies that he was misquoted In the
Interview, In which be la said to have
stated that Honolulu official and Mrs.
Stanford's servants plotted to secure a

men too well, and I know that while

make a story out of tho wholo cloth.
It Is clear that Jordan saw he had

better correct It."
