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. All ofa Size.

TOLD HIM WHAT TO SAY Mrs. Lillie was Accused of Coaching- Runyan , a Broker LETTERS FROM MRS LILLIE Grain Broker is Told to be Careful of His Testimony WAS CALLED AT .REQUEST Mrs. Lillie Very Handy with Revolver -Shows Her Skill TELEPHONE GIRL TALKS .Made Light of Murder Case of State Soon to be1 Finished | 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. Mrs. Lillie is showing the effects of the trying ordeal. She is pale and presents a care-worn , tired appear ance , but seems to take great interest In the case by watching every word of the testimony as given by the wit nesses on the stand. Occasionally she speaks to her counsel , presumably In reference to the evidence adduced by the witnesses on the stand. Con sidering the gravity of the crime with which she is charged and the fact that she is not a person of more than average physique she is standing the trying ordeal with remarkable fortitude. 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 as 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 and asks you anything you know what Editor Stabbed by Negro. St Joseph , Mo. , Feb. 24. . Paul Grin- stead , editor of the Times , was fatal to ly stabbed by a drunken negro named Frank Warner , at Wathena , Kas. , Sunday , and excitement is running high in Wathena and in Troy , where the negro is in jail. Talk of lynching in case Grinstead dies , is heard. Grinstead is the editor who served nearly a year in jail in 1900 for libel and edited bis paper * from his cell. r to say to him. ' Sometime before this | she had told me not to say anything tc Harvey or anyone else about this tchi business with me. The communica tion that was delivered to me by Mrs. tiVv Warren I burned up as soon as I read it . The substance of it was about Itt trade of ten thousand bushels of corn and for me to keep it good ; that she had been before the coroner's jury and Dr. Sample had tried to tangle her up and if they tried that on mete to be careful and not let them do so. "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. The next letter I received through the postoflice , either December 9 or The letter was admitted in evidence. "I was at the home of Mrs. Lillie one Sunday afternoon after the death of Mr. Lillie. going there at the re quest of M s Lillie. I think it was about two u eeks after the murder. 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 asbi 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 cri "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 jury. We have not established any 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. " Were Not the Men Sought. St. Louis , Mo. , Feb. 24.

DEFENSE OFFERS ThbTIMONY- State Contest to Rest in Lll it Murder Trial Strong Chain of bvidence. David City , Neb. , Feb. 25. Vfti more than two weeks occupi d a wholly in the introduction of testi mony , the state Tuesday rested in the prosei 11 m of L na M. Lillie , charg : ed with Lh maid r of her husband. From the standpoint of the prosecu tion it has been well handled and a remarkably strong chain of circum stantial evidence established. It is hardly thought the defense will re quire the time occupied by the prose cution. At this time the state rested its case , and the defense began calling witnesses. 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 ing Mrs. Lillie I noticed there were j 1 DO pockets in her clothing. Mrs.c' Lillie went homo about 9 o'clock. I tvent over there soon after she got home and took her back to the hospital - pital with my horse and buggy. On the way to the hospital Mrs. Lillie tvas crying and feeling very badly , i After we arrived at the hospital she isked Ed Hall how Harvey was , and tie fiid he was about the same. Mrs. Lillie went home a little after 12 5'clock , ate her dinner with the rest. j could not say whether she ate heartily or not. She was feeling badly and her actions were not natur- ' il. She went back to the hospital ifter dinner. Hewitt and Ed Hall i Id vised her not to go to the room tvhere Harvey was , as she could do him no good. She remained there antil Mr. Lillie died. "I have been in the home of Mr. md Mrs. Lillie and they got along rery nicely. I never saw a cross look Irom either one of them. I have seen them at lodge. They were ve y affectionate. ' ' Gross-examination : "I do notki o fvhat their conduct was when Iws aot there. It has been about two rears since J saw them at lodge. I 1 have passed the house frequently and have seen them sitting on the porch. do not remember any particular time that I saw thorn together on bhe street. " 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 the room where Mr. Lillie was. " ' Mrs. Bell Benton said : "I am a cousin of Harvey Lillie. Since they tnoyed to David City I have been at their house two or three times. Mr. ind Mrs. Lillio. were always kind and . affectionate toward one another. Their conversation was always pleasn ant. " On cross-examination witness said : "I cannot recall that I have seen . . and Mrs. Lillie together but once. ' ' Mrs. Clara King said : "I saw Mr. a and Mrs. Lillie quite frequently ; | i lived on the lot adjoining the Lillie residence. Mr. and Mrs. Lillie seemed to be on very friendly terms , n was Mr. and M s. Lillie's cus o ,1 stay at home nciiings. " On ere s-1 j examination witness said. " 1 saw'T ' . and Mrs. Lillie every evening out the back yard feeding the chick- . " ens. n Mrs. Carrie Wilson said : "I was at L Hie house on the morning of ! c. murder.

WORST OF HIS KIND KNAPP FPOVEN TO BE MURDEREH MANY TIMES OVER \ KILLING WOMEN MANIA FIVE STRANGLED IN TURN. TWO BEING HIS WIVES SHERIFF GAINS ENMITY 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.

( 1895.Hannah 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 ter < his confession to the Hamilton authorities last night. From its tone Knapp expects to be sent to the pen itentiary for life. He writes in a most affectionate manner to the wife. Mrs. Knapp said she did not know anything . . thing about the Hannah mentioned 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. because I can go and see him once in 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. . Hamilton , O. , Feb. 28.

Charles Thorson committed suicide by hanging himself to a bedpost. The deceas d was a highly respect ed Swede , who form arly lired in Platte county , and who built a r > sid - d nee and moved to ( Knoa about a year ago. Mr. Thorson had not b.-n known to touch liquor for about ten years , but he returned from a trip to Columbus intoxicated. His wife , fearing to stay with him , went to a neighbor's house and spent the night , and on returning home in the morn ing found him hanging to the bed- ( post. ' 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 bruth lies somewhere between first impressions and final decisions. J. C. Stevens , a draughtsman in he office of the state board of irriga tion , has compiled a table showing the amount of water that is availa ble for irrigation and not used. The statistics run back to 1895. and give mean annual average of 6,854,000 , acre feet which is sufficient to irri gate 3,457,000 acres.
