WASHINGTON, D. Jan. IG.-
From its mysterious stock of inter-
cepted diplomatic communications
the state department today published
correspondence between von Bern-
storff. former German ambassador
here, and the Berlin foreign office
showing that former Premier Cail-
laux of France was in communica-
tion with German agents in Argen-
tine in 1915.
The first dispatch contained very
damaging evidence and references to
Caillaux's relations to the German
government and warned German pa-
pers against naming him.
Another told of a shin on which |
Caillaux was sailing from Argentine1
and the capture of which was sought
because of her captain carrying lni-l
portant pipers. The first von Bern-
storff message is as follows:
"Buenos Aires telegraphs the fol-
lowing: Caillaux has left Buenos
Aires after a short stay and is going
direct to France evidently on ac-
count of the scandal which he re-
gards as a personal attack on him.
lie speaks contemptuously of the
president and the rest of the French
government except Briand. He sees
through the policy or England per-
fectly. He does not anticipate the
complete overthrow of France. He
sees in the waf'now the "fight Tor ex-
ibtence of England. He accepted in-
direct courtesies from rae but w«u
cireful knowing how he was watch-
ed even here. He deplores the
favorable comment concerning him
in the press that especially by the ]
N'ieu Frie Presse and desires on the |
other hand that the Morocco agree-
ment be criticised. Caillaux's recep-
tion here was cool. His report 011
Argentine had nothing new. On his
return to France he will reside
nmong his constituents. He fears
Paris and the fate of Juarez.' Bern-
The second is as follows:
"Caillaux telegraph the steamer
Araguya left Buenos Aires Jan. 30.
The captain is c arrying important
papers. Capture is very desirable.
Caillaux is on board. In case of
capture, Caillaux should be treated
with courtesy and consideration. Can
you inform our cruisers? Bern-
The instructions of the German
censorship to the press follows:
"For political reasons it is re-
quested that nothing be written
about the former minister Caillaux
and that nothing be said about him
in any circumstances."
This correspondence is made pub-
lic at the request of the French gov-
ernment. Caillaux is now awaiting
trial on charges of treason in con-
nection with the now famous Bolo

"Old timers" asserted that there had
been a storm of equal. if not worse
proportions in October 1880, but there
are no definite records on the first
storm, and it is known to have been
more locally confined that, the "great
storm of '88."
The storm seems to have originat-
ed in Nebraska, and extended to cen-
tral Iowa and Wisconsin eastward and
to the Montana line on the west. The

By the Associated Press.
CAMP FUNSTON, Jan. 16.—The
money taken by Capt. Louie R.
Whisler from the army bank, said
to be more than $62,000, was found
today hidden in the walls of Whis-
ier's barracks here.
The money, all in currency, was
found stored neatly in a hiding
place Capt. Whisler evidently had
prepared for it. The finding of tho
money, it was said, probably will
c lose the case as lar as the accom-
plice theory is concerned.
It was announced officially this
afternoon that the robbery that cul-
minated in the killing of 4 men in
the bank building and the wounding
of a fith was a closed incident.
It is also stated that Capt. Whisler
was considered "in an abnormal con-
dition" at the time of the crime.
