INSISTSHE WAS POISONED
HONOLULU DOCTORS' OPINION
ON MRS. STANFORD'S DEATH.
They Reply to President Jordan's
Theory and Stand . by" Conviction
That Strychnine Killed Her.
HONOLULU, March 17. Edmund
Shorey, chemist of the United States
Agricultural Station, and Drs. Wood,
.Murray and Uumphris. have signed a
statement replying to Professor Jordan
and Timothy Hopkins, -who recently an
nounced their conclusions that the death
or Mrs. Stanford -was due to natural
causes. They characterize the statement
of these gentlemen as astonishing, and
reiterate their finding that strychnine
was tne cause or the death. They say
that the publication of the Jordan-Hopkins
opinion makes It Incumbent upon
them to reply, and they give the follow
ing reasons why the death must have
resulted from strychnine poisoning:
First Mrs. Stanford died during a char
acteristic strychnine convulsion, which was
ecn by Drs. Humphrls and Murray.
Second A post-mortem showed, rigidity
Identical with that peculiar to cases of this
class of poisoning:.
Third The post-mortem revealed no other
cause of death, from any affection of the
stomach or Intestines. They contained 'no
undigested food and. were in a healthy con
dition. fourth The post-mortem confirmed In
every respect the evidences of authenticated
cases of 'strychnine poisoning:. and these,
combined with, the fact that strychnine was
found in the bicarbonate of soda which was
used by the deceased, furnish a chain of
evidence that will withstand the fiercest as
saults. Continuing, the statement goes on to
discuss the testimony of Miss Berner,
Mrs. Stanford's secretary; of May Hunt,
her maid, and .that of. Drs. HumDhrla
and Murray. It quotes medical author!-''
ties, regarding the symptoms of poisoning
by strychnine, and reaffirms', the posi
tive opinion 'that strychnine ' poisoning
caused the death.
HABBIMA2 STILL FIGHTING.
Objects to Issue of Mandate In North
ern Securities Case.
WASHINGTON. March 17. William P.
Clough, for the. Northern Securities Com
pany, made application to the Supreme
Court today for Issuance of the mandate
in the case of E. H. Haxriman and oth
ers against the .Northern Securities Com
pany In accordance with the decision of
the court Ui favor of the company. He
based It on the; ground that until the
mandate should be Issued, $5,000,000 worth
of property would be tied up by the in
junction of the New Jersey Court and
this was an injustice to the people and
the owners of the property.
Maxwell Evarts, representing the op
posing side, objected to the motion, say
ing that the mandate should not issue
until the opinion of the court in the case
Is handed down. The court took the mat
ter under advisement after directing that
the application of Mr. Clough be printed.
Mr. Evarts' objection to the Issuance
of the mandate was based on the
ground that it would render futile Har
riman's right to petition for a rehear
ing, as the Northern Securities Com
pany intended to Immediately distrib
ute Its assets.

They were about to call on T. A. Mar

Ballplayers Speculate on Contents of
BAXER3FIELD, Cal., March 14. Spe

the Portland lnflelders are reporting for
duty. Third Baseman Runkle arrived late
last week, and early this morning Harry
Schlafly reached this city after a long
Journey from Ohio.
Three large trunks belonging to Short

this afternoon from New Orleans, and
tonight the ballplayers are speculating as

fered to bet that bats and balls were In
the Saratogas, but this guess proved erro
neous, when a Wells-Fargo express
wagon unloaded two large leather bags,
the property of Pitcher French and Atz,
which contained baseball utensils. Little
Jimmy Gleason made a wager for the
cigars with Ell Cates that at least one
of the trunks contained previous averages.
Atz and French were scheduled to play
a big exhibition game with a National
League team at New Orleans last Sun
day. They telegraphed McCredie that they
were, In perfect shape and would leave the
Southern city immediately after the game
for Bakersfleld. The arrival of their bag
gage is taken for granted that the tardy
men will arrive here Thursday morning,
providing no further washouts delay
The Portland players were happv over
the ill-fortune that greeted Mike Fisher
last Sunday. The fierce rain knocked the
baseball game, but the farmers and cat
tleralsers In this city and business men
generally would rather see a rainfall than
a star baseball contest. The Tacoma and
Chicago game, nevertheless, would have
drawn the biggest kind of a crowd, as 1200
reserved tickets had already been sold and
over 1000 other spectators would surely
nave been on hand. The admission price
to the park was o cents, including grand

day, McCredie had all his men on-the field

JHE LAXATIVE of
There are two classes of remedies: those of known qual
" ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance; and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain andinferior character, acting tempo
rarily, but injuriously, as a result of forcingthe natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and excellence is the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California
Fig Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant syrup,
in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are used to con
tribute their rich, yet delicate,
of all remedies to sweeten and
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi
ples and quality are known to physicians generally, and the
remedy has therefore met with their approval, as well as with'
the favor of many millions of well informed persons who know
of their own personal knowledge and from actual experience
that it is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that
it will cure all manner of ills, but recommend it for what it really
represents, a laxative remedy of known quality and excellence,
containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character.
There are two classes of purchasers : those who are informed
to the quality of what they buy and
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers an imitation of any well known
article; but, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. They cannot expect
