How Officials Now Regard The;  Tragedy, The Evidence of  Doctors  Vancoaivor advices received by mail so     at,variance with that  of   Mrs.  ��������� ' Jones in respect to what the latlci  regarding  the Jackson   poisoning case 'Joncb        "' '  contains thc following:  Unraveling ot    the knotty mysteryt  of the Jackson poisoning case is now  occupying the attention" of the police  .department:   The officials have   been  awaiting, to a certain' extent,        at  least, the result of thc iitn'iiest.'-Now j  that the ii%iiry  is coniplcte anil   the'  jurors ha-ve deeddpd that the deceased  came to his   death q(/ the ad.m>iaiistra-:  tion     of poison  by  some,  person  or ;  persons uiiknpwn,  the affair, (rom an  investigating standpoint, is turned altogether   into   the hands  of   the     detectives. *  No secret is made of the fact that  for some; time since the death of tho  u ii Tort una te mining man the, authorities have regarded ��������� the case as one  of .murder The officials regard the  vorclict of tbe coroner's jury as one  "alleging nuinler, mvd the problem  now is to decide anil prove who was  the party who cfummilleil the. murder.    .  It is  fact  that the jurors last  night 'discussed the question as to  whether they should include, the word  "wilful," in their perd'et in describing  the     manner invvhich  the po-ison  said she had told Dr. Riggs upon his  arrival at the house.  Dr. Riggs said that on the day   hc  was called- to the house, he had considered, that a great many of -Mrs.  Jackson's  actions   would  conform  to  hysteria,      although  hysteria   would  simulate almost any type of disease.  Dr.   Riggs  also   ������������������'.stated ".that when  pumping      out the     stomach   of Mrs.  Jackson he had not'noticed'anything  strange coming from it save , a green  slime,; which might  have been caused  by Mrs.     Jackson having swallowed  mustard and water.  Dri Young, ..who.arrived at the Melville street, house; just is-.Jackson died  testified that he could not find anything in the. symptoms of Mrs. Jackson that would lead him to believe  that- she had taken anything that  would cause her death. .,  No arrests have been made so faj-,  and it is not likely that, any developments of     the kind     will fake   place  within the next few clays.  In view of the" testimony of the  medical men an interesting feature is  connected w'it'i the question of wheth  er Mrs. Jackson took poison at all  or whether the kind she'took      Was  MONSTEP  SHARK KILLED  By    Vancouver   Mill men--  Weighed Four Hundred  Pounds  strychnine,  which caused  the death of  was administered;    but     at the time "j,  the proposition  of  the deceased  hav  ing  committed  suicide  was  not  con-'  sidcred   within  the  range of  ppssibil-!  ities. |  The  most   important testimony given   at the   iintfic'Kt,   was   that,   of Drs.  Young   and   Rig^s,   who   won;  calkd  to attend  the  Jacksons on  that  fatal  Sunday  morning.      Dr.   Riggs   tes-1  tilled  that so far as he. knew no poi-'  son existed whivh could have caused I  thc     sysmptoins he noticed  in  Mrs. I  Jackson  when   he  readied   the house.  er husband.  As the case stands this feature discloses one of the important links' in  the chain of events 'arid'evidence. If  I tho contents of. Mrs. Jackson's stomach/ as revealed by the stomach pump  , luut liccn'; kept for analysis, :Uie;qucs.  lion could then be settled definitely  whether of not she was a victim of  poison or merely .��������� a sufferer from hysteria.  While'    there, are   some contradictions   in   thc  testimony,   these     are  for  'not  regarded   as-suiTie'ien.,   The testimony of Dr. Riggs was al- j s,tanrCj to base an arrest upon  iri-  Yancouver,  Dec.  7���������Quite a commotion . was  raised this'morning among  the      men cmiployed   about   McNair's;  .'shingle    .mill No. 2. at Cedar Cove,  owned by the Hastings Shingle Manufacturing   Company,' by   the  appearance  of two  large, sharks  of the mud  species among thc driftwood just east  of the  mill.

Frightened by the shots of tho hunters the cari|l:������u stampeded across the  creeks in bands of hundreds, trampling over sluiceboxes 'and getting tangled in the wor'-s.
