The result of the Coroner's Inquest
In the case of the death of Mlamoto To
ri, the Japanese woman Who breathed
her last at the Japanese hospital Sun'
dav afternoon gives rise to this ques
tion. In another column appears the re
hiilt of the Coroner's Inquest In the caj
of the death of Mlamoto Tori, the Ja
panese woman who breathed her last
at the Japanese hospital Sunday after
noon. Mention is made of a certain
jioAiier having been found In Tori's
room and of the fact that some of this
was taken by the woman.
Now It appeare that the powder giv
en Dr. Shorey waB contained In a ha
hach tin and that the powder Is un
doubtedly buhach. This statement was
made by Dr. Sh6ry this morning as he
wan on a round of all the drug store
of the city getting samples of the bn
haih sold. As the tin was not given
to him until after 4 o'clock jesterdiy
he has not yet had time to make an
an tb sis.
Deputy Sheriff Chllllngworth said
this morning that he had made In
emlile as to what kind of poison was
i outlined In buhach and had foun I
thnt there was alvvayB a small amount
of .raenlc used In Its manufacture.

the case of a person sitting in a room
where buhach la burning, a drowsy
feeling comes on after a little.
A post mortem examination was not
held on the body of the Japanese wo
man as It was over ten days after the
supposed taking of the poison, tint
death resulted. Nothing could be deni-
.n list rated.

thlee of tho most Important witnesses

ceed In getting any testimony of value
that could go towaid piovlng without
a doubt, tho causo of woman's death.
The husband wns contiudlttory in
his statements.' He man led Toil when
she was fifteen ycais of age and rame
here two years later. He did not know
any reason why his wife should at
timpt suicide. She had not been well
fni several months and had often com
plained to him of her physical condi
tion. It was finally learned that Toil
had at one time been an Inmate of tho
cnual at Iwllel, The husband dis
claimed all responsibility of this. Then
came the story of the drunken debauch
of January 2. the call of Dr. Kobayashl
and the removal of the woman to tho
hospital on I.tllha street,
Dr. Kobayashl diagnosed the caBe as
heart failure. A box of pow'der had
been found In the room and It vvaa
learned from a woman In the house
that Tori had taken a quantity of thU
In water with the Intention of destioj
lng her life. This woman will be lo
cated today and made to give hei sr

.'..The police believe firmly that tli
woman Tori committed suicide. Thoy
have two theories, the first of whlih
Is that Tori was very much chagrlnel
by the bad treatment of the father lv
his son, her htiBband. The second Is
that an attempt had been made to make
the woman return to the Iwllel corral.
This circumstance appears very suspi
cious. It seems that, as early as 1

Three Months' Notice.
V, A. r.oMnson. Post OfTIco Inspec
tor, was Interrupted In his corres
pondence to ask nlm about the pros
pects of rtrcet delivery. In reply he
A good deal has been published about
free city delivery which .:i never tu-
thorlzcd. No definite time cm lie
stated for beginning the Bjstem. Au
thority has not jet been received for
starting it. '
"There are many things required to
be done before Honolulu will be In
shape for street delivery of mall. The
houses are not numbered. A very good
Sstem has been adopted and some resi
dents have accepted tho new members
from the contractor, hut before the syj
tern can be made complete there must
be somo authority, a government ordl
nance of some kind, to compel the num
berlng of all houses.
"Another thing Is the condition of
the streets. I have gone around to
study the situation relative to the adop
tion of fice delivery. In many paits
the streets arc not roads at nil hut
mere trails. To a great extent they
are without sidewalks and thercfoia
unfit for carrier routes. Thc carriers
have to go their rounds within n cer
tain limit of" time and must have
smooth paths for their feet. Again o.i
have to travel o long distance beforo
- reachlng any cross street. Some streets
wind round almost 10 a circle, i neru
seems to have been no sjstem In lay
Ing out the streets."
A question ns to whether rapid tran
sit cars would be utlllied In the dell-
very system drew from Mr, Hobslnson
the further observation that the de
partment has no means of knowing
what are the limits of the city vvlt'i
In which the delivery system would be
operated. Unquestionably Honolulu
would hnve the system In time, but nt
present the event could only be called
"Yes. It would be a good Idea for
people who have taken the official num
bers to mlvlso their correspondents
nbroad of their street addresses. This
would aid the postmaster In making up
his directory for free delivery. Aflei
the order Is received for starting thu
system.three months' notice would have
to be given the public. Time will be
required for getting carriers and hav
ing them familiarized with their dis
tricts. Saturday's Concert.

Towt claims that the plantation has

agreement called for. He cleared the
stones and weeds off the land expecting
seed cane to be supplied but the plan

"I sec that the big liner St. Paul lost
one of her propellers through the shaft
snapping off during her last trip
across," said a former sea captain now
engaged In business In New York. "The
strain put on a propeller shaft lri any
large vessel is something frightful, and
It has to have extraordinary strength
to withstand It. Tho worst part of
It Is when the stern lifts out of water
during a pitch. Then the propeller
blades have nothing to play against ex
cept air, and, naturally, they begin t'
race. While they are whizzing at top
speed they souse Into the water again,
and you can Imagine the shock! It
