Strychnine in Water Then- Dr. Jor-
dan's Tribute to Mrs. Stanford.
?an Francisco, March I.— On' January IS it
was reported that an attempt bad been made
to murder Mrs. Stanford by poison placed in a
bottle cf mineral water at her home in this city.
It was seated that she had taken three drinks
or the mixture, but that the poison had been
naed in such large quantities that it served as
its own emetic. Mrs. Stanford became violently
ill and medical aid was summoned.
The contents of her Ftoma<h and the water
remaining in the bottle were analyzed, and
enough strychnine to kill three persons was
Miss Elizabeth Richmond, Mrs. Stanford's
maid, who recently quit her service, told the
details of the recent alleged poisoning;.
She says that on January 14. at '.) o'clock in
the evening, she was called to Mrs. Stanford's
room. There Mrs. Stanford said: "Richmond.
there -• °i.. v to he something wrong with this
water. Will v-j taste it?" The maid tasted the
■rater, and found it very b.'tter.
Mrs. Stanford had already vomited what she
bad drunk. She seemed greatly agitated, and
the maid suggested that she drink some warm
salt water, and thus clear her stomach, which
Fhe -lid. Then the maid took the remainder of
the bottle of mineral water to a druggist, and
left it to be analyzed. A week later a report was
received from the •'■ mist, who said the water
was heavily charged with strychnine. ,
Although the story of the attempt to poison
her was positively denied, rumors regarding it
persisted. eh«c h«- sailed for the Orient on the
Kotfa two weeks ago, and it was bc-iieved by

In his opinion and In the opinion of Charles Q.
; Lathrop. Mrs. Stanford's brother, there was no
, truth in the story, and that wnbout doubt Mrs
i Stanford died a natural death.
Mr. Wilson .<..<■) Mrs. Stanford had been In
: poor health for some time, and probably died
from heart disease, ipoplexy or pome similar
j trouble : • • .
Shortly before she went to Honolulu, he added,
she had a very severe bronchial cokl. and her

Sacramento, Cal.. Mar-li t— Beth houses of
'he Legislature ■ adjourned early to-day as a
mark of respect to the memory of Mrs. Stanford.
.Mrs.' Jan* Stanford was ■ the widow of Senator
Stanford, who died in 189$. They were the
; joint founders of Lelana Stanford, jr., University
j at Palo Alto. Cal.;. as a . memorial to their only
| son. Senator Stanford gave 53.000 acres of land
i t« the institution, besides a large endowment.
I and in recent- years Mrs. Stanford deeded an im
! mense amount of property." so that the entire
: assets of the institution are valued- af 530,000.000.
Mr* Stanford whose maiden name "was Jane
; Xjathrop; wat born in Albany on • August '£5,
I IS2r». Her father was Dyer l^athrop. a merchant,
! whose ancestors lived- In Connecticut. She was
•directly descended from the. Rev. John Lathrop,
! pastor at Sdtuate, Mass.. in 1632. and from Philip
. Sherman, one of the founder* of Rhode Island- in
i 1625. Her father was Sheriff of Albany County
! when she became the wife of-Leland Stanford, in
I IMS. Mr. Stanford had been admitted to the
! bar a short time before. After two years of,
| practice of his profession In Albany he and his
j Wife removed to Port Washington, Wis.. and In
j 18S2 went to California, where three of Mr. Stan
i ford's brothers were in business in mining towns.
j He joined forces with them, soon establishing
j himself in Ban Francisco, where he was especially
I successful. In 1861 he was elected Governor of the
| State, and Mrs. Stanford became active in the
I social life of the California capital. Governor
j Stanford had been interested In the Central Pa
i cific Railroad and after his term as Governor de
i voted himself to its completion, driving the last
i spike in 1563.
Governor and Mrs. Stanford had no children until
; 1863. when a son was born to them, to whom
they were deeply devoted. The boy. who bore hi«
: father's name, lived to be sixteen years old, but
: while in Florence, Italy, in 1284, he was stricken
j with typhoid fever, the attack proving fatal. It
; is said that while* his father was watching be
! side his son's bed he fell asleep -and dreamed
' that his son said to him: "Father, don't say that
I you have nothing to live for: you have a great
I deal to live for; live for humanity." From -this
sprang the idea of a memorial university, which
the parents soon proceeded to carry out.
In 1885 ex-Governor Stanford was elected United
I States Senator, and his wife Accompanied him to
■ Washington. He was serving his second terra
when his death occurred H- left his entire estate
i to his wife, who was to carry out their joint Ideas
J In the university bearing the name of their son, al
1 ready established at Palo Alto, twenty-eight miles
from San Francisco. The work of constructing the
buildings had been begun! the general design of
j which .- Moorish. Palo Alto means tall tree, the
, name being given to the estate for two giant oaks
J on it when it passed into the hands of Senator j
I Stanford. • \ .
After. her husband's death Mrs. Stanford devoted !
| herself to carrying out the plans for the uni
! versity, for the free instruction of students of both
■ t=*-x-s. The university was chartered In 1887, and
its doors were opened for students on October 1, j
j 1891. It now has a faculty of 113. 1.462 students and !
a library of 80,000 volumes. Dr. David Starr Jor
dan has been the president since its opening.
In 1901 Mrs. Stanford deeded property valued at
\ many millions of dollars to the university. The
! following is a list of the property as enumerated
j at that time:
Interest bearins stocks and bonds of the highest
class conservatively appraised at $18,000,000. and
mostly bought with the following estimated pos
sessions of two years before: 283.000 shares South
ern Pacific stock, at $40 a share, $11,400,000: wo*)
shares Central Pacific stock at $35 a share, $250,000;
10 COO hares Centra] Pacific stock, at $57 a share,
JSTO.OOO: Market Street Railway stock. Jl.500.000; one
fourth Interest In Pacific Improvement Company,
$7 OUO.OOO. Total. $20,720,000.
Real estate In twenty-six counties, aggregating
about 100,000 acres of land, valued at $12,000,000: Vinti
Ranch Teliama County, 5,009 acres, enormous
brandy and agricultural place: Sridlej Ranch,

the world; Palo Alto Ranch. Santa Clara County
'.■■•.l acres (famous stock farm): Stanford mansion,
Nob Hill. San Francisco; Stanford home, Sacra
mento, and extensive tracts of real estate in seven
teen other counties of the State.
The deed of gift directed the policy of the. In
stitution In certain matters, one of them being the
limitation of women students to five, hundred at a
time. There were included in the transfer deeds
covering property given to the university by Sena*
tot Stanford, which had h»en found to be illegal.
The gift was valued at $30,000,000 at ■ conservative
estimates. . - -■_„! ''!
Mis Stanford al c built the. Lathrop Children s
Hospital, in Albany, at a cost of $100,000, wiin an
endowment of a like sum, and she gave $160,000 to
the kindergarten schools of San Francisco. Among
her sifts to the university was the Stanford man
sion "on Nob Hill. San Francisco, with its grounds,
valued at $400,000. which it is expected to convert
Into an art gallery. Stanford Farm, at Memo
]•;:•■* CaL, was the favorite country home of Sen
ator and Mrs. Stanford. They had a house in
Washington and also one In this city nt one time.
in the first years after Senator Stanford's death,
owing to litigation over his estate, the task of keep
ing t!:« university under way was a difficult one.
Tlih government sued the estate for $15,000,000 grow
in? out of the construction of the Central Pacific
Railroad, and while the suit was pending Mrs.
Stanford had only $10,000 a month, all of which.
save bare Hvlhs expenses, she turned over to the
university^ Some of the faculty aided by refu!?in
all salary until the litigation was over. Th»* suit
t-nded in Mr-. Stanford's favor in the United States
Supreme Court.
Until a short time.apo Mrs. Stanford was In ex
cellent health. She had planned a reception at her
home in California-st.: San Francisco, on February
8. in honor of her niece, Miss Jennie I>athrop, but
the Invitations were cancelled by reason of the sud
den Illness of Mrs. Stanford. On February 16 she
sailed for Japan, ar.d it was stated two days after
ward that she had been taken ill after drinking
from a bottle of mineral water in which poison
had been placed. The quantity she took of the
poison proved Its own antidote, her stomach reject
ing it. But she was In a state of nervous prostra
tion from the effects. No i;phi was thrown on
the way in which the poison, presence of which was
prpved by analysis, came to be in the mineral
water. ■
Mrs. Stanford- was regarded a«; a business woman
of exceptional ability, and after her husband's
death ■ assumed the responsibility of the manage
lin-nt of a ranch of 62^00 n.cres In 1902 a church
in memory of her husband was dedicated at the
university, costing $500,300; of which Dr. Heber New
ton of this city, became rector.
"A characteristic of Mm Stanford," said our -who
knew her several years ago "was that she did not,
give her money, and then close eyes and ears and
Try" to shut out sights and sounds of the world
while she brooded over her own sorrows. Instead,
■h< contributed with her money, her own wise
thought and strong personality.
"Mrs. Stanford was always famous as a hostess,
ar.d whether to Cabinet members or to news
boys in Washington, or to students of th» uni
versity in California, he was the kind, genial wr.m
an." forgetting' herself for others She. was the per

Even Close Relatives Could Not Al
ways See Her, Says One.
"I am absolutely at a loss to understand why
any one should have wished to take Mrs. Stan
ford's life," said Colonel George Perkins Law
ton, Mrs. Stanford's nephew-in-law, yesterday,
at his home, No. 05 West 45tti-sL
"I am also unable to understand how and) an
enemy could approach her. She was always
carefully guarded by her servants and attend
ants, and. although I am her nephew by mar
riage, and the relations between us were most
friendly and intimate, I was not always al
lowed to see her when I wanted to.
"That any of her servants could do the deed
Is to me quite unthinkable. Such a crime Is not
committed without a motive, and I don't see
how any of her servants could have had such a
motive. Her relations with them were always,
so iar as I know, pleasant and amiable.
"I do not know exactly who she had with her
at the time of her d«ath, but the last time she
was in New-York she was accompanied by her
old and faithful companion. Miss Bertha
Burner; by her maid, Richmond, who had also
been with her a long time, and by a new man
servant, whose name I do not know.
"As for any one outside the household who
might have committed the crime, I am equally
at a loss. The whole thing is a mystery, and I
know no more than the public knows."
Speaking of Mrs. Stanford's work. Colonel
I>awton said: "I believe her the greatest wo
man philanthropist that ever lived. She was
certainly the ablest woman I have ever known."
Colonel and Mrs. Law ton were at a wedding
reception when they received the news of Mrs.
Stanford's death. Mrs. Lawton Is completely
prostrated. They have, sent messages to Hono
lulu for information as to the funeral arrange
ment?, and will start for San Francisco as soon
as they have received it.
Whether Suppe's comical and melodious operetta
•f "Boccaccio" was revived or reviled at the Broad
way Theatre lAst night by Miss Scheff and her as
sociates it were a pretty point to determine. Them
were times when a revival seemed almost at hand,
but there were other times when the judicious
grieved and the cynical scoffed, as when Louis
Harrison referred to Boccaccio in the disguise of
a gardener's boy as "Buster Brown," or Isabella
expressed th« wish that she had "flew the cooper."
or the cooper himself summoned his assistants
by name* familiar in the cast of Donizetti's
operas in the bis house down the road. For such
"gapging" as this— and from one end of the play
to the other such liberties or worse were taken
with the text— thero can be no possible excuse. The
interpolations were not funny, could not have been
funny even if the Interpolators had been. And the
operatic atmosphere was entirely missed — the force
(if a bad example is horribly strong! Even the
"first night" audience present got it through their
heads that something was not as it should be, and
on various occasions actually demonstrated that
they knew what was wrong.
It win not ti> be expected, from the company
which has alreads been heard In "Fatinltxa," that
the music would !»■ sung with more than moderate
success, though it was surprising to find Miss
Scheflf herself straying constantly from the key.
The score was considerably cut. men's souks espe
cially froing out, perhaps from humanitarian mo
tives. The work was listlessly conducted from a
piano score, and no overture was ployed. Under
the circumstances, urn so much of the music gave
pleasure was a compliment to the composer of no
ni' ii. urder.
Miss Scheff acted better than she has In any other
of bar recent roles. She v,;ih especially effective as
the gardener's boy (pardon, as Buster Brown!).
It should also be added that Loulk Harrison was
one- actually funny. It was during the band
song In th<- third act. One of hjs lf-ps arousi ii
slulek.s of merriment. To such extremities w;us
Bappl reduced.

Sir Pnrdnv's Digestion "Unim
paired" — Zangzcill on Baltic.
Sir Caspar Pardon Clarke, the new director of the
Metropolitan Museum of Art. nas a fellow pas
nenjrer yest>rda> v. ith J. Fierpont Morgan and J.
Bruce Ismay on the Baltic. Speak. n* of hi* stay
here Sir Purdon said:
My visit has been unusually pleasant, and 1 am
going back with an unimpaired digestion. Many
substantial and really wonderful improvements
have taken place in New-York since my visit here
many years ago. The Museum has a splendid
collection In ail Its branches, some of which are
complete. Some departments are not fully devel
open. and ii shall M my aim and care to develop
them to the fullest extent. The collection, as a
whole, is magnificent, and I consitler the art and
sculpture branches already complete.
As an architect. I have examined your sky
scrapers. They are not without merit, but I should
like to see one of the big ones tested by tire— a real
big fire. Would there be simply a twisting of Iron
and a warping, or would they come down on a
run? . ' •
As to the life of these big bui'dlngs I cannot say.
That is a matter which time alone can determine.
What we in England would like to know is are
they fireproof? In England our fireproof buildings
burn and come down on a run. while some of the
buildings of some years ago. with wooden beams
and wooden Joists, remain.
I am going back to complete the plans which I
now have UDder wav, and I expect that I will be
able to . return here about the latter part of Sep
Mr. Morgan was besieged by camera men as soon
as he arrived on the pier. A host of friends went
to the pier to see him sail.
Mr. Morgan. It is said, will go yachting in the
Mediterranean and spend some time on the
Riviera. He had nothing to say regarding his
Israel Znng-will. the playwright and novelist, an
other passenger, said that be still bel.e.rod the
United States was no place for the Jew. "I be
lieve." he said, "from persona] observation, that
South Africa is better and more suitable for Jewish
immifrr.'itioiv Out ther<> th^re is more room. Here
everything tends toward congestion. I am !n favor
of the South African scheme."
