Tlgh Sheriff Henry stated this af
ternoon at the hour of going to press
that the report from the government
chemists in the Stanford poisoning
matter would not be ready until to
morrow afternoon. The chemists stat
ed to him they were still unable to
arrive at any determination ns yet.
There is considerable inharmony be
tween the attorney general's and police
departments over the management of
the Stanford investigation. The mat
ter has been entirely left with Henry,
as a result of a conference which took
place between the governor and the
two department heads two days ago.
An offer of assistance to the police
from the attorney general's depart
ment was declined at the start, and
the result was that Andrews kept his
hands off. Chester Doyle who Is con
nected with the attorney general's de
partment was sent to offer his ser
vices, but they were not accepted,

It was reported last night that An

matter but this morning he denied the
report. "I lhave not taken charge nor
had anything to do with the Stanford
case," said Andrews. "It was decided
that unless some charge was brought
requiring legal action, this depart
ment was not needed In the matter and
I am therefore not even acquainted
with what has been done or what evi
dence has been collected. I have even
been refused Information."
It is said that Andrews may appeur
at the coining inquest.

The sensational report wus empha

stated that she had never made a

to tight the sugar trust.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 3. The
Crockett refinery has been purchased
by Hawaiian sugar factors for $3,000,

gar Factors' Company is met however
with statement that the recorded fact
Is rather a change of the title of the

Years ago, what is known as the Cal

reflnery was established at Crockett,
California. In this corporation a large
number of tho Hawaiian plantations,
