UJffLU SAM HAS THE MOST
Golden Hoard Exceeds Treasure of
Any Other Two Nations.
Washington,D. C.— Ui| le Sam has
more gold in his possession today
than he lias ever had before in his
life. Treasurer U'e McClung looked
over his ballance Blieet Friday and
found the government had more than
$1,000,000,000 in gold coin, to say
nothing of $126,000,000 in bulion.
Never before in the history of the
government has It hed so much gold
piled up in Its coffers.
Not only is this a recard-breakelng
amount for the goernnient to have,
but there is more gold in the treasury
now than in the vaults of Great Brit-
ain and France combined, or of Great
Britlan and Germany combined, or of
Great Britlan and ltushia combined
In other words, this government has
more gold. In gold coin and bullion
than any other two nations.
This vast golden hard represents
the accumulation of a long series of
years. It is not ascribed to any par-
ticular financial development of recent
occurrence. By no means is all this
gold coin and bullion stored In Wash-
ington. Any burglarious gentleman
who thinks he can tunnel under the
treasury and find all this gold in that
institution is In error. The gold is
partly In the vaults of the treasury
here in Washington, some of it 1b In
the vaults of the subtreasurles and
some of it is in the mints of Phila-
delphia and Denver.
As a matter of fact the greater part
of it is in the two mints named.
About $935,000,000 of tho total coin
Ib held In trust to redeem outstanding
It is expected congress will put
through legislation this session to en-
able the treasury to issue gold cer-
tificates against gold bullion in the
proportion of 3 to 2. That is for
$200 in bullion It would be Impossible
to Issue $300 In gold certificates
against the bullion. This would lessen
tho amount of mintage necessary.
Thre years ago the goernnient
transferred $270,000,000 in gold coin
from San Francisco to Denver. That
task was accomplished at a cost of
Kaiser Wllhelm and the German
government have stored away ap art
of the indemnity from France, which
can be used for war purposes at a
moment's notice if need be. But the
chest of Germany is small compared
with Uncle Sam's hoard of gold. Nev-
er before in the history of the world
was there anything like it.
If all the gold coin and gold bul-
lion of the government were con-
erted into $20 gold pieces and laid
011 the ground side by side they would
form a string of gold reaching almost
half across the United States. The
string of gold would reach from New
York to Chicago and good distance
At the same time all this gold
could be housed in one room of di-
mensions not very great. I could
easily be put into a room fifty feet
long, twenty feet wide andt wenty
feet high. This would leave consider-
able space to spare.
A( QUITTED OK SENSATIONAL
Defendant Was Alleged to lie
mate with Wife of
to establish the fact that there was
a conspiracy between Yates and the
woman to get rid of Wadsworth, who
in addition to owning much land south
of Depew was insured for $10,000.
1 lie belief prevails here that the trial
of Mrs. Wadsworth will result in a
Another feature of the case is the
1 unior that the insurance company in
which Wadsworth carried a policy
will probably refuse to pay the policy
on Wadsworth's life and another le-
gal battle wil lbe fought. It is stat-
ed by a representative of the comp-
any who was here recently that
Wadsworth who was a Creek freed-
nian, took out his policy as a Cau-
easion. He was on the enrollment
list receiving 160 acres of land and
his three children received 80 acres
MISS MAIIJOItlE IDE.
I tlier, but there was one injunction that
j he carefully impressed upon them:
J "Do not fall in love with a foreigner.
I want you to marry men from home."
Miss Marjorie liked Spanish life and
customs, and she approved bullfights
and the dark eyed devoted Spanish
cavaliers who twanged the guitar un-
der her balcony on moonlight nights.
Then appeared 011 the scene Marquis
de \ alios, whose earnest courtship led
Mr Ide to send his daughter to the
Riviera, to Paris and to London, the
marquis always following. Now she
has been sent to America to visit her
sister and friends, but it Is whispered
that Don Alfonso is preparing to fol
low her home as well.
The marquis, it may be observed, is
considered the handsomest man at the
court of Spain. He is a tall, dashing
nobleman from the Basque country
and is posse.--.-vd of a mountain castle.
He serenaded her nightly until the
young American decided to astonish
the Spanish court, mid she invited
Marquis d - Yallos t:> ride with her one
morning. This was a shock to Span-
ish ideas of duennas and other ham-
perings of courtship, but it succeeded.
But his mother, the marquese, ob
jected to an international alliance, and
so did Mr. Ide. A conference of par-
ents and the visit home of the young
lady was the result.

Sapulpa, Okla., Feb. 27.—Harry Yat-
es, was acquitted of the charge of
killing Ben Wadsworth by a jury in
the district court here Saturday after
one of the most sensational murder
charges ever tried in Creek county.
Hesucceeding in establishing an alibi
tl iid effqrts of the prosecution to
shake this fact were unsuccessful.
Mrs. Martha Wadsworth. who is co-
jointly charged with Yates in the
killing of her husband will be placed
on trial today.
On the night of the tragedy last
November, Wadsworth was seated
in his home In Depew, this county
with his wife, her father, Ixm Walk-
er, and three other persons. A voice
called Wadsworth to the door on see-
ing no one, he stepped Into the yard
in the direction of the wood pile.
There was a flash, a report of a re-
volver and Wadsworth fell to the
ground with a bullet through his
Heheart. died instantly.
Because of the alleged intimacy
existing between Yates and Mrs.
Wadsworth he was arrested, and
three days later Mrs. Wadsworth was
arrested in eonection with the killing
Both were held without ball at the
preliminary. The state endeavored
Fie years from now nothing but
j s*ee' cars will be used for earring the
government mails. This is a stipula-
tion inserted in the postoffice appro-
I priation bill. No wooden cares are to
be used for such service after Janu-
ary, 1916, and meantime the old wood-
en cars will be worked oft and new
steel ones put in their places The
new regulation was based on statistics
showing the destruction of mail mat-
ter and the loss of life resulting from
use of the present type of wooden
cars. Only a fetv years ago a steel
car was unknown. Then followed ex-
periments, w hich were failures, in the
construction of steel baggage cars.
I-ater the metay was used in building
heavy coal cars, and they proved to
be very valuable. Invention continued
busy along the steel car line until an
excellent hype was evoled and at once
the leading railroad companies began
to order tlieni by the hundreds. Now
whole trains are made up of steel cars
and eth federal gavernnient, prafltlng
by the experiments of the railroad
campauies, directs that no mall con-
tracts be made for other than non-
combustible steel railway cars. Few-
new Inventions have made such rapid
progress as the steel caar, as a sub-
stitute for wood.
