Jane Latbrop Stanford, widow of
, United States Senator Stanford of Cal
i ifornia, died at the Moana, Hotel here
at 11:40 last night, jrobably as the re
sult of poisoning. , , '
Before retirine last nizht. Mrs.
Stanford took a dose of bicarbonate of
soda, purchased in Saa Francisco. It
is reported that this soda contained
strychnine, but the report cannot be
Vtrified; Dr. F,. IL Humphreys, her
- phynician, has made an examination of
the contents. The bottle had not been
touched since Mrs.. Stanford left San
Francisco, and he refuses to disclose
the result. . .
At 11 o'clock A. Ileunisehe, of San
. Francisco, a guest at the Moans, who
: occupied . an adjoining room, heard
Mrs. Stanford groaning, and running
to the room, found her lying on the
floor. She had evidently tried to sum
inon help. When, her death took place,
less than three-quarters of an hour
later, Miss Berner, her secretary, and
Miss May .Wilson, her maid, were pres
ent. Both, are prostrated.
Mrs. Stanford came to Honolulu
from San Francisco on the Korea Feb
Tnsry 21. Slie admitted to Mrs. Ilenr
High ton, orSan Francisco, who is now
in Honolulu, that an attempt had been
made to poison her in San Francisco,
and that she had-Bailed on the Korea
for this, reason. Mrs. Highton says
Mrs. Stanford; told her enough poison
had been used in the attempt to kill
Tho investigations or the police Hare
. failed -no far to find any evidence of
)oisonhig, Imt the authorities decline
to ex orcss anv ouinion pending the Te-
sult of lhe&Utopiy and the analysis of
the pottle of CTearbonat or oh. A
box of capsules was also found in the
room, and these are beig analyzed.
No inquest will lie held until Hisrh
Sheriff Henry receives the report of the
rhsmists. The House of Represents
fives of the Territorial legislature
adoptd a resolution of sympathy and
adjourned out of respect to the memory
of Mrs. Stanford. The bottle contain
ing the bicarbonate of soda bears the
label of Charles Fell & Oe.y Adelaide,
-Australia, but it is believed to have
been re-filled since purchased there.
M it Bertha Berner, Mrs. Stanford's
secretary, sftys a previous attempt on
the life' of her employer was made on
January II last, at her home on Nob
Hill, Ban Francisco, when strychnine
was found in a bottle of Poland min
eral water. Miss Berner said to a cor
respondent of the Associated l'ress:
We went to a pienie yesterday and
were planning to go today to Heleiwa,
a suburban resort. Our luncheon yes
terday consisted of ordinary cold dishes
prepared at the Moano hotel and there
was nothing in It of a canned variety.
Mrs. Stanford ste very heartily. She
expressed ?reat enjoyment in the trip
and said that she felt very well. We
returned to the hotel at 4 o'clock and
Mrs. Stanford retired to her room for
rest. Iater she dressed for dinner.
When soup was served she said that
would be sufficient, as she was not
hungry. We then went onto the ver-j
anda. where Mrs. Stanford planned the
trip to Haleiwa for today. She then
said she wonld retire early so ahe
would be refreshed for the trip. ? At
8:50 Mrs. Stanford sent for her maid,
May TTunt, whom she recently employ
ed.. She then said to-me: 4 1 shall re
tire and take my medicine; please get
it for me.' I got a teaspoonful of bi
carbonate of soda, one purgative tablet
and a bottle of Barttett water. Mrs.
Stanford forgot to take the medicine
and Isy down and slept. As soon as she
awoke she "took the medicine and again
retired. Mrs. Stanford was noon there
after seized with convulsions which
threw her nt of bed. The maid. and
' myself came in answer to her eall, as
did also a guest from a nearbv room.
She aald: 4 1 am poisoned.' The con
vulsions continued in spite of the ef
forts of Dr. Humphries, a physician.
The bottle of bicarbonate of soda 'was
purchased by me at Adelaide some
years ago. bui had been re-filled for
Mrs. Stanford at Ssn Franeiaco."
Dr. Humphries made, the following
statement: "When ealled in I found
Mrs. Stanford in convulsions and ap
plied the quickest remedies but it ws
' not possible to save her life. Mrs.
Stanford said tot me: 'Doctor. I have
' been poisoned.' .Mrs. Stanford's eon.

of the death of Mrs. Stanford was

ST. PETERSBURG, March 1.- Lien
tenant General Stoessel arrived in St.
Petersburg from Moseow - tolay. A
quarter of an hour before his train was
due it looked as if not more than 100
Tersons : wonld be present to welcome
the defender ox t'ort Arxnnr, Dut.meir
number augmented rapidly and when
the train steamed into the depot many
hundreds of people, especially women,
rrowt'ed the platforms.' War Minister
Sakharoff and Admiral buoui, in De
half of the admiralty, welcomed Gen
eral Stoessel, who waa cheered and pre
sented with flowers. '
After receivinz the personal eongra.-
uJations of friends, the general, look
ing bronzed and in cood health, trav
ersed the cheering erowd to a reception
room, stopping now and t,hen to shake
hands with admirers. Behind the gen
eneral came Mme. Stoessel, leaning ea
the arm of a military ' officer. She
seemed even more bronzed than ber hus
band and smiled happily at the warm
welcome accorded him. It was remark
ed that the general's hair was turned
In the reception room, General Bog-
danovheh welcomed General Stoessel.
He referred to the international trou
bles, saying that when General Stoessel
left Russia calm prevailed, while no in
ternal enemy was endeavoring to un
dermine the prestige of the. state. Re
plying General btoessel sam ne naa
heard while in Constantinople of the
disorders in Russia, and since then he
had traveled in Souther! Russia, had
sooken to the people and had notilct'
their tranquility of mind and especially
their loyalty to the fcmperor. He was
confident hat the people would remain
loval and that Russia would issue vic
torious from the present" crisis.
When the reception ceremonies were
over. General and Mme. Stoessel enter-
edj an open carriage and drove through
the Nevesky Prospect to the residence
of Lieutenant General Prince Viazmy,
member of "the Imperial . Couneil,
where he wilt stay.
The crowds in the streets cheered the
general. The absence of military and
naval officers from the platform was
very noticeable. ' Only a few military
men and no naval officers, excepting
Admilar Silotti were present. .AJarge
force of police surrounded the railroad
station; while the route to-Prinee Viaz-
mky 's residence was patroled by nu
merous detachments of Cossacks and
Life Guards, apparently in expectation
of a hostile demonstration.
Althogether, the general's welcome
was by no means in the nature of a
popular demonstration, and lacked gen
uine enthusiasm. Two months ago all
Russia was singing the praises of the
defender of Port Arthur, yet when. he
came home comparatively few people
assembled to cheer him.
E. E. NICHOLS MUST ANSWER TO
CHARGE OF FREQUENTING
HOUSE OF ILL-FAME.
Police Make Bald and Capture Offender
Second Time H. H. Deiner, Pianist,
Also Taken in Fanny DaTenport
Booked for Disorderly Conduct.
As the result of another move made
by Marshal Cornelius and his men last
evening. Ellsworth E. Nichols mast
face the charge of frequenting a house J
of ill-fame, H. H. Deiner, a piano play-'
er, will 1x3 required to answer a similar
charge and Fanny Daren port, the land-
ladr of 1 notorious house on "pepper
mint flat," is booked for disorderly
ronduet. Nichols still being held under
former bond was allowed to 0
upon his own recognizance. The Darea
port woman promised to appear in court
when wanted o was not taken into
eurtody, and the piano player put up
fJ0 cash bail to insure his appearance.
Determined to carry out the original
plana, and follow along the lines map
ped out at the meeting held by the city
officials a few weeks ago, Marshal Cor
nelius, assisted by Officers Lewis and
Murphy, made . a raid upon the house
of ill-repute on Ferry street, conducted
by lanny Davenport, between 7 and 8
o 'clock last evening. H. 1L Deiner, a
pianist employed at the plaee, was the
first victim to fall into the clutches of
he marshal, who had entered the
bouse while the other officers stood
guard upon the outside. , Nichols next
put in an appearance and was promptly
gathered in. The landlady became very
adiznant at the action of the roliee
and her fit of temper brought her into
he game with a change of disorderly
conduct placed against her. The three
eases will be ealled in the police court

mentioned in the opening of this arti
cle. sauer kraut, mince meat. etc.
Last year the product of fifteen to
twenty acrcs of land planted to cucum
bers was used in the making- of pickles,
and it is hoped this may be increased
this year, if the men owning suitable
land can be induced to grow . them.
They must be contracted for in ad
vance, jaad "this eompany alwa-s takes
all that can bo had, and call for
more. i .
Last year fifty to seventy-five tons
of cabbage were used up in the making
of saner kraut,
Over 1,000 ton of apples were u"d
last year for. cider and cider vinegar.
.The, soda plant is one of the largest
in the atate. But notwithstanding this,
some ; new machinery is about to be
added, end new building erected,
with a view to increasing the efficiency
of this department, and so that all the
bottling operations may he assembled
under one roof- Besides this, the room
now Occupied by the soda plant and
the bottling operations is needed for
other growing departments. The of
fice of the company will also be . re

has been "growing steadily, from year to

One Thousand . Miles 'Above Dawson
City, in Colefoot Region, Alaska, W.
H. Jones Strikes Vein, at .Depth of
90 Feet, Which Yields fS to the Pan.
The story has come to light of an
other Salem, wy who has struck it rich
in the far and frigid north". This time
it is none other than W." II. Jones, who
left this ' city in 1898 To Urave the
rigors and hardships of far away Alas
ka to eke out a fortune -from the
bosom of Mother Earth. Although he
has labored long and faithfully for the
past seven years, during whieh time he
has. met with only adversity and disap
pointment, he is a firm believer in the
old adage that there is a reward for
encountered from fhe extreme cold,
lack of provisions, etc He tells of how
he happened to select his claim, which
turned out so handsomely, and also of
his encouragements and discourage
ments each day as he penetrated the
depths of tue earth in search of j the
glittering and precious metal. Hef dug
at the rate of I about five feot-per" day
and big dairy shows that he, saw no
signs of gold until he had reached
bedrock, at a depth of 90 feet. -He tell
of how he felt when at a depth of 85
feet, when there was no reward in
sight for his labors, and he seemed to
bo in the proper mood to give it up.
On the,, following - day, however, j he
struck bedrock and the object of 'his
search in generous quantities.
Mr. Jones was raised in this county
and is quite well known. His relative
and friends state that he is not of the
excitable kind and is not in the habit
of exaggerating or padding his state
ments in the least. He says th;it he
has taken out numerous an from his
claim and that they yield all the way
from $2.."30 to $8 per pan. The7 vein,
irnere jie Birue 11, is over one jwi in
depth and the indications are that it
i.i inexhaustible. o estimate what
ever is placed upon tbe.ivaluo of the
claim, but. it is doubtleW; immensely
rich, sineo all. hero who are familiar
him who perseveres "antT waits, and he
has been . rewarded for bis laith m
Dame Fortune, who has at last beamed
one of her most fascinating and bencv
olent smiles nwii him.' The informa
lion comes, through the medium of a
letter that he has struck it immensely
rich iu the Colcfoot regions, ' having
discovered a placer claim- that yields
from 10 to $per pan. Thi,i con
sidered to be fabulously rich strike,
as a claim that yields from.'lOt to 50
Cents per pau is looke4 upon1, us n

In Fobruarj' f tho year lh!8 W.- II.
Jones and Geo. "W. Johnson, Jr., Imtb
of this city, went ' to Alaaka to seek
their fortunes. Johnson remained but
'a little more than a. 'year aud Came back
pretty much discouraged with the pros
pect d his ill-luck. Jones, however,
wsa. made of different material, ami
decided to stay with it, "make or
break," and it seems that he .has come
out on top. He has only, been lack
home once, and that was (about tro
rs ago, tor a 'brier visit. I no 11 re
turning- to the far north ho Veeidel to
penetrate deejer iinto tho interior. He
went into the Colefoot rgion, which is
about 1.000 imilts north of . Pawnor
Citv, and here he has liisde his strike.
The letter which' be writes and which
was received 'by IvTr. Johnnon, is writ
ten in the form of a dairy and is a
very interesting document to peruse.
It recites in skeletonized detail all of
his experiences from the time ne left
Dawson for th interior and recounts
tho hardflhips and privations which he
with mines, prospects, etc.. state that
a claim that will yield from 10 to 50
cents per pan is regarded as a great
and rielit find. Mr. Johnson, who gave
up the Chase, for wealth discouraged,
is very much , more so since be has
learned of his friend's areat .soceeas.
Mr. Jonns states in his letter that there
are vry few prospc tors rn the Cole-

been unavailing and the matter is hung
up indefinitely on that account.
Ujon the order of the city council a
new grade was recently established by
the city engineer whwh would cut down
the steep hill between Mill and Mission

of the street beyond Missionvto the
extent of about eighteen inches. This
it was hoped would lie satisfactory to

Commercial street whichh , as been a
nnisance to the city for so many years

Teri Miles of Sidewalk. ,
Councilman Achison, of the Seventh
Ward, states that great preparations
are beinz made for the construction of
a sidewalk upon the eat side of Coin
mereial street, from Mission to Wyers
street, a distance of eight blocks, and
the -only thing that is delaying this
work is the dispute over tho establish
ment of the crade for Commercial
street. These jeople, he sayg, are anx
ious to get to work building their walks
and are growing impatient over the de
lay in the establishment of a satisfac
tory grade but there seems to be no one
to blame but the property owners them
selves, as the council grants every pe
tition that is presented to it looking to
the improvement of Commercial street,
or any other street in the city, for that
matter. . ; , ,. '. . '
Street Commissioner Jvurtz, states
that there is more sidewalk building
oin- on in the rty this year than ever
before in, the history of Salem. It is
being carried on principally in the sub
urbs, that is, the newly acquired terri
tory, to the city, and he places an ap
proximate estimate upon, the walks so
far built as not lesa than ten mile.
About 11, (K0 feet of lumber has already
Wen used by the city this year in the
construction of crosswalks rn the north
ern and eastern parts of the city, where
the sidewalk building is being carried
on most extensively. The sidewalks be
ing built are by no means' all wooden,
cither, as many of 'the property 'owners,
even in the suburbs, several blocks and
even a mile outside of the cement walk
limits; are constructing cement side
walks as a matter of economy. Several
hundred fct of sidewalk to .bc laid In
South Salem will t alo of cement.
Street Commissioner Kurtz stated yes
terday v afternoon that he planned to
Imild several ' more cement crosswalks
within the emt limits this' ycary but
he fears now that h will lc prevrnlcl
from -trryinr out his plans on account
