Loss in Coining Gold.
A strange thing about our coining
system , the Draftsman says , is that the
government loses money in coining
gold , but makes a big profit in coining
pennies. For instance , in a $10 gold
piece there Is exactly $10 worth of gold
and 10 per cent of copper put in to
harden the precious metal , besides the
cost of minting. A silver piece of mon
ey is about half profit , but the penny
pays Uncle Sam best of all , as the
blanks are purchased at the rate of
$7,300 per million. That Is , the United
States Government obtains for 73-10
cents the copper blanks which by the
process of stamping are transformed
Into $1 worth of pennies.

David City , Neb. , Feb. 24. The
third week of the Lillie murder trial
began Monday morning. When court
adjourned Saturday evening the state
had introduced twenty-five witnesses
of the forty-six endorsed on the in-J
formation. It is generally under
stood that some of the witnesses for f
the state will not be called until the
testimony of the defense is in , when
the state will introduce evidence in
rebuttal. Counsellor the state think
they will conclude the examination
of witnesses by tomorrow evening.

The jury , being all farmers , do not
altogether relish the close confine
ment which they are required to en
dure. They are given out door exer
cise every day , but this is not suffi
cient to fully satisfy them. How
ever , they are submitting to their
condition cheerfully. Yesterday the
Jury , accompanied by Deputy Sheriff
Varin and Bailiff Hackworth , attend
ed the Congregational church and
listened to a sermon delivered by
Rev. Edwin Booth as attentively as
they listened to the eloquence of the
attorneys in the court room.
When court convened this morning
there were very few spectators in the
court room. Edward L. Hunyon was
the first witness. He said in part : I
' 'I am engaged in the broker busi
ness , working for Shuman. The na
ture of the business is buying and
selling options on the Chicago board
of trade. Mrs. Lillie traded with me
in my line of business from August
7 , 1902 , to the time of Mr. Lillie's
death. She would either order grain
bought or sold and put up the mar
gins. This was done mostly over the
telephone , but on one or two occa
sions I saw her personally. Tne
margins were most always , with one
er two exceptions , sent to me through
the postoffice. She paid me in money.
From the 7th day of August , 1902 , to ]
th > time of Mr. Lillie's death she |
paid me S515 , and she had a credit on
the 7th day of August of $510. Her
losses were $1,025.00.
"On the 23rd day of October , 1902 , w
she gave me an order to sell ten thous
and bushels of corn. She gave me
this order some time in the forenoon [ j
by telephone , but as the market was ti
going up I did not place the order.
' She called me two or three times
about the matter and I told her the , .
margin would be $200 and if the mar
ket still went up it would be more ,
and she said she would get the mon-
ney to me that night or the next
morning. "
"Two or three days after this Mrs.
Warren brought a note to me , and on
the 28th of October I received anoth
er communication from Mrs. Lillie.
Some times she would pay me the
margins on the day they were called
and sometimes I would not get it till
the next morning.
"On the afternoon of October 23 I
had a conversation with Mrs. Lillie
over the telephone , and she asked me
if I had seen Harvey , and I told her a
had not. She said , 'If he comes as

| she had told me not to say anything
tc Harvey or anyone else about this
business with me. The communica
tion that was delivered to me by Mrs.
Warren I burned up as soon as I read
it . The substance of it was about

"On October 28 , 1902 , Miss Anna
G-raham , assistant postmistress , de
livered a letter to me. This was
about two o'clock in the afternoon.
The letter was written by Mrs. Lillie.
I also received letters from Mrs.
Lillie before the death of Mr. Lillie.
Witness here identified the letter
delivered October 26.
"The letters I burned up were in
reference to the trades that she had
made with me. "
The letter delivered to Mr. Runyon
was admitted in evidence and reads
"Mr : Runyon : I have just learned
ti Guy Walling has circulated the
re around town that I had lost
$1,300 on the board. "You know that
it is not so , and I wish you to brand
it as false. Stick to what I ask of
you and nothing else , as the gossips
of this town say some of the most ,
ridiculous things anyone ever heard ,
of. I don't know how I will ever en
dure all I have to go through.
"That little trade I had there , I
suppose you took care of itand I will
make it all right some day. I think
it is going to make me some money
soon. They have no way of knowing
anything only through you , and I beg
of you to be careful. You understand ,
be careful what you say. I told them
that you never received any margin
only through the mail and that the
amount was merely inclosed in an en
velope vand sent. How they know
anything is what I can't see but they
don't know much , and if you want-
to ask me anything , you can through
the mail , and it will be safe. "
"Since the death of Mr. Lillie I
have also received other communica
tions from -Mrs. Lilllie which I have
not destroyed. One of these I re t
ceived about the time of the prelimi
nary tearing by Martin Hill. ' '
Mr. Hill is a brother of Mrs. Lillie.
This letter was identified by the wit
ness and admitted in evidence and
read to the jury.

had a conversation with her at this
time. In substance she wanted to
know what condition her business [
with me was in saying she had kept
no books and she wanted to know
something about it. I told her the
last trade she ordered had not been
placed. I do not remember that she
said anything in answar to this. to
"I had another conversation with
Mrs. Lillie at her home about three
weeks ago , about S or 9 o'clock in the
evening. I am n M positive what was
.said , but I think we talked about
the preliminary hearing. We talked
about what my testimony would be
in court. J told her my testimony
would be given from my books and
asked her if'she had a record of her
trades , and she said she had not. She
asked me if my books would be
brought into court. I told her I
thought not , that I had a statement
from my books and thought that
would be enough.
"We talked about Harvey coming
tc my ofiice and looking at the mar It
kets ( and she said Harvey knew about to
her trades. I had another conversa
tion with her at my house one even Mr.
ing. This was si nee the arrest. Sam in
Lillie was present. She asked me
why I picked out part of her trades
and showed them up. She asked rue th
to give all the trades she had'made. " the
The last two letters referred to
are as follows : i
"Mr. Runyon : When they call you saw
a state witness remember what was
you are to do- give a four years' re out
port as you said you would , and do to
not allow them to work on what Sam
pie tried to work before the coroner's was

thing at all yet only that Dvaid City
has a poor telephone system , and I
will count on you staying by me as and
you should and you must , as they are
going to try to make your book a I
strong point against me. Don't let
them do it. . They have not a single
thing against me , and so far they
have not been able to dig up any
thing , so do not be the means of such nno
thing yourself. I will count on you
a friend to do the right thing by
me. L. M. Lillie. "

From the standpoint of the prosecu

remarkably strong chain of circum

hardly thought the defense will re

At this time the state rested its

Mrs .Georgie Leper was the first
witness for the defense. She said in
part : "On the morning of October
24 , 1902,1 was at the Lillie home and
saw Mrs. Lillie. 1 went from there
to the hospital. Mrs. Lillie was
there , and she told me that in the
morning she was woke up by a shot ,
a d saw a man standing at the head
of the bed pointing a revolver at her.
She was crying all the time , saying
she wished it could have been her in
stead of her husband ; that Edna
thought so much ol him. She was
continually asking how Harvey was ,
and wanted to go upstairs where Mr.
Lillie was. She was weak and faint.
\Ve \ took her out of doors and one of
bhe ladies got some camphor. After
this they took her upstairs. Ed Hall'l
and I went up with and assisted her.
When she arrived in the room she
dropped down into a chair , laid her'
head on the bed and kept saying'Oh ,
flear , oh dear , why couldn't it have
been me instead of Harvey. ' Mr. '
Elall and I helped her down stairs.
Mrs. Lillie was not dressed warm
enough. Mrs. Woodward got some '
other clothing and I assisted in put
ting them on her. Mrs. Lillie was j '
crying and asking how Harvey was i
all this time. In a-sisting in dress-.a

heartily or not. She was feeling
badly and her actions were not natur- '

him no good. She remained there
antil Mr. Lillie died.

When court convened this afternoon
the cross-examination of Mrs. Leper
continued. She said :
"The sec9nd time Mrs. Lillie went j
the hospital she did not go iutj

Mrs. Bell Benton said : "I am a

Makes a Full Confession to Officers at Hamil
ton Ohio Whole Career One of Crime
Known in many Cities
Indianapolis , Ind.Feb. 28. Albert
Knapp , arrested in this city yesterday -
day , who lies in the Butler county jail
at Hamilton , self-confessed as one of
the most depraved criminals run to
earth in recent years , has the follow
' ing ] crimes laid at his door :
Emma Littleman.killed in a Cinci
nnati lumberyard iTanuary 21 , 1894.
Mary Eckert , strangled to death in
Jennie Connors Knapp , his second
wife , murdered in Cincinnati , and
thrown into the canal there August
7 , 1894.
Ida Gebard , a child , assaulted and
murdered in Indianapolis , July 19 ,
' 1895. (
Hannah Goddard Knapp , his third
wife , murdered at Hamilton , O. , and
her body thrown into the Miama
river , December 22 , 1902.
Knapp had served five prison sen
tences ' , three for larceny and two for
assault. He had served two terms
at Jeffersonville , Ind. , one at Colum
bus , 0. , one at Joliet , 111. , and one
at Michigan City , Ind. . , to which
prison he was sent from Indianapolis
'in 1896 for assault on Bessie Drapier ,
a child.
Since his return to this city in De
cember ' he has , the police feel sure ,
been guilty of two barn burnings.
When he was convicted for the Dra
pier assault he threatened to get
even with every one concerned in his
conviction. '
Ex-Sheriff Womack , then sheriff ,
gained his enmity. His barn was re
cently burned and several thousand
dollars' worth of fine horses and im
ported cattle were roasted to death.
Al Boardman was one of the jurors
who convicted him. His barn was
burned about six or seven weeks ago.
Almost every hour adds to the long
list of crimes laid to the man's door.
Anna Gamble , the fpurth wife of
Knapp , received a letter from her
husband today , evidently written af

in the letter as her husband had
never spoken to her of the woman.
"He spoke of having a wife at one
time , " she said , "but I did not ask
him any questions. It didn't bother
me. "
Mrs. Knapp abused her husband's
family and said they had objected to
the marriage.
" 'Jhey wrote to him , " she said ,
"and told him if he did not give me
up they never wanted to see him
again. ( TJiat was after we were mar- a
ried. Allie told them he had married -
ried me and intended to stick by me
through thick and thin. He loves
me and I love him. All I am afraid
of : is that they will kill him in the
electric ] chair. If they send him to
the penitentiary it won't be so bad.

while. "
When asked if she thought Knapp
was insane , the woman said he had
never acted as though anything was :
the matter with his mind. .

Present indications are that Jesse
Roate , a single man about 40 years of
age , who has been for many years
making his home with his sisterMre.
Steve Hartman , a short distance east
of Dawson , has fallen a victim to the
Nemaha. A few days ago Mr. Roate
came in from the field , where he had
been herding cattle , and started for
the IS'emaha river , close at hand , for
a pail of water. He did not return ,
immediately and has not been seen ,
since. Tracks in the snow indicate
that he followed the usual path to a
low footbridge which is about twelve1
inches above the water , and as the
tracks ceased at the middle of the
bridge it is supposed that the unfor
tunate man slipped when he attempt
ed to draw up the watjer. After he
had been gone about twenty minutes
a search was instituted and his cap
was found under the edge of the ice a }
few feet below the bridge , but the *
tin pail was missing and has notbeeru
located yet. In the center of the
stream , both above and below the
bridge , the current is so strong that
no ice formed , and the probabilities
are that if the man fell in his body :
did not come up until it had washed"
under the ice , and in this etenfc it
will likely not be located until She
spring thaw. A large crowd f Men
worked steadily for some time cutting
a channel in the ice and using polea
to search for the body without arafl ,
and yesterday the hunt was aban
doned. The accident occurred but
a short distance from where Mrs.
Harrison fell in and lost her life some
four years ago.
As a rule of life , one finds that the
