for the plan, but he may bring it up

Honolulu, March 1. Mrs. Jane La
throp Stanford of San Francisco,
widoy of U. S. Senator Leland Stan
ford, died at 11:40 o'clock last night,
forty minutes after she was taken ill
at the Moana hotel here, under suspi
cious circumstances, pointing in the
opinion of the physician - who attend
ed her in her dying hour, and seem
ingly in that of others, to poisoning by
the administration of strychnine In a
vial of carbonate of soda.
Mrs. Stanford herself, when found
by a guest of the hotel, who had heard i
her groaning In her agony and suffer
ing from .convulsions, declared, "I
have been poisoned," and her last
words were: "This is a horrible death
to die." "-. '
Physicians say that between the con
vulsions Mrs. Stanford repeated the
assertion that she had been poisoned
and said it was the second time an
attempt hadbeen made, the first be
ing in January at her San Francisco
home, and that it was this which caus
ed her to come to Honolulu.
An autopsy on the remains showed
that the cause of her death was te

how this was brought about will not
be known until after an examination

Mr. Wilson Is awaiting advices from
Honolulu officials before taking any
action regarding the business affairs of
Mrs. Stanford, which are Intimately
connected with those of the great uni
versity which she and her husband
founded at Palo Alto. This institution
has already been endowed with $38
000,000 in property and coin, to which
may be added about $10,-
000,000 from Mrs. Stanford's
personal estate. She took a
deep personal Interest in the univer
sity and to her business sagacity is
due much of its success, a fact which
is testified to by its president and stu

loved her. The university was closed

until after Mrs. Stanford's remains
have been placed beside those of her
husband and son in .their mausoleum

Mrs. Stanford in this -city was first
made public on the 18th of last month
when It was declared that strychnine
had been found in a bottle of mineral
water from which she had taken sev
eral drinks. She was made ill and an
analysis showed the presence of
deadly drug in the water. To Dr. Wil
liam Boericke, who attended her, Mrs
Stanford told a story of what she be
lieved to have been at attempt on her
life. She suspected no one and upon
the advice of physicians soon went to
ths country. Returning here, appar
ently in Improved health, she sailed for
China and Japan, by way of Honolulu,
on February ISth, arriving at the Ha
waiian port five days later. The al
leged attempt to poison her was in
vestigated by a detective agency, but
no results were obtained and the mat
ter apparently was dropped.
