MRS. JANE STANFORD POISONED
WHILE ON VISIT TO HONOLULU
Honolulu. Mar. 1. Mrs. Jane L. Stanford died last night from poison
ing. The details of Mrs. Stanford's death were received by mail and
are most harrowing. Mrs. Stanford arrived in Honolulu on the Korea
one week ago accompanied dy her maid and secretary, and went at once
to the Moaun, announcing that she had come he're to rest for a few weeks.
She seemed, however, very cheerful and received the many friends who
called on her in that spirit, although to one at least of the more intimate
ones she threw aside her cheerfulness and spoke of fear of cfTorts to
poison her. Mrs. Stanford went on a drive to the Pali, and down into
Koolau, where the party had a picnic dinner. Mrs. Stanford ate very
heartily, and seemed to enjoy every moment of the drive. The party
returned to the Moatia hotel, and at dinner time Mrs. Stanford went into
the dining room. She did not remain more than three minutes, she had
eaten so heartily at the picnic that she did not care for dinner. She made
no complaint of feeling ill. Leaving the dining room, Mrs. Stanford sat
on the lanai talking very cheerfully until bed, time. At a little after ten
o'clock, she retired to her room on the second floor of the hotel, and
about n o'clock a guest in an adjoining room heard her groaning. Go
ing into her room she was found lying on the floor, moaning as if" in
pain, and saying, "I have been poisoned!" Dr. Hnmphris was sum
monedj and to him Mrs. Stanford repeated: "I have been poisoned. Get
a stomach pump at once." Dr. Humph ris called Drs. Day and Murray
to his assistance, and although all that was possible was done for her,
Mrs. Stanford was beyond medical help and died at 11:40. Almost her
last words were: "This is a horrible death todicl" An examination was
made of her room and upon a table at the bedside was a vial containing
carbonate of soda, which had been used as a corrective medicine. It is
not stated whether Mrs. Stanford had taken any of this lastliight, but
there was found mixed in the soda some trace of strychnine.
It appers an attempt was made in San Francisco to poison Mrs. Stan
ford, which led her to leave San Francisco. In a conversation with Mrs.
Henry E. Highton of Honolulu,- an old and very intimate friend, a few
days after her arrival here, Mrs. Stanford said: "The reason I left San
Francisco was because an attempt had been made upon my life. There
was enough poison used then to kfll twenty people, and an investigation
is now being made in San Fransisco." She was accompanied on her arrival
here by her secretary, Miss Burnbam and by a maid known as May.
Both women were completely prostrated by the suddeness of last night's
tragedy. High Sheriff Henry, who has worked on the mystery closely,
is one of those who believe that Mrs. Stanford was poisoned. This
afternoon he said to a Bulletin reporter: "There now seems no doubt
that the bottle of bicarbonate of soda also contained a large quantity of
strychnine. A thorough test has not yet been made, but the preliminary
tests of the chemist prove the above fact. The bottle came from Sydney,
Australia, and Mrs. Stanford had taken but one dose, shortly before re
tiring. Mrs. Stanford was in her 77th year. Her husband rose from a
humble merchant to a great railroad magnate and a senator. After his
death she tarried on his splendid work for Leland Stanford University
and was beloved by thousonds of its students and graduates. As the wife
of Senator Leland Stanford she was always kindly and hospitable.
Leland Stanford, Jr., University was founded in 1887 by Senator and
Mrs. Stanford as a memorial to their only son, who died in early youth.
Its doors were opened in 1891, and it has risen to the rank of one of the
greatest universities in the United States.
Honolulu, Mar. 3. The remains of Mrs. Jane Stanford are embalmed
and a death mask taken.
Honolulu, March 6. In the Stanford poisoning case, it will be four
or five days before search of traces of poison is completed.
San Francisco, Cal., March 4. The servants of the Stanford mansion
are practically prisoners. Others in the suburbs are under police sur
veillance. President Jordan and Timothy Hopkins of Stanford Univer
sity with Detectives Reynolds and Callundan sail today in the Alameda
for Honolulu. The police have begun an official inquiry but as yet have
made no arrests. A conference was held today when the report of the
Morse Detective Agency regarding the January attempt to poison Mrs.
Stanford was considered. At that time a chemist reported having found
strychnine in mineral water which Mrs. Stanford had drank.

To the Japanese Consul, Honolulu:
Our Manchurian army's report is as follows;
"Our detachment attacked on the 23rd instaut the enemy in Chigho
cheng, 30 miles east of Pensiho. Strong snowstorm, the steep nature of
ground and the melting ice in the Tatzuho greatly hindered our move
ments, but by noon our first line had managed to press closely the
enemy's position and deliver fierce attack on the enemy consisting of
sixteen battalions with twenty guns. t The enemy, holding strong posi
tions with several rows of defensive works, offered stout resistance. At
the daybreak of the 24th instant we renewed attack followed by grenade
fighting and by the evening.Chinghocheng fell into our hands. The
enemy routed northward, burning Chiughocheng and leaving afield 150
dead. We captured three machine guns and a number of rifles and am
munition. The enemy's losses are believed to be considerable. There is
no case of frostbite in our army," TAKAHIRA,
