That an American fortune of $6,000 may
reach the colossal sum of $3,000,000 In the
Columns of a "yellow" In Russia Is dem
onstrated by the experience of Victor
Schmidt Is 72 years of age and has been
placed In the hands of a guardian. He has
a bank account of $5,000. Clippings from
Russian newspapers which have reached
Omaha show the papers In that empire are
telling about the poor Victor Schmidt, who
left, that country for America impoverished
andMs now worth from $3,000,000 to $4,000,000.
It Is suspected by Schmidt's friends hero
that some one is trying to work supposed
relatives In the old country for attorneys'
fees to collect the fortune for them when
While Schmidt's. Russian relatives are
dreaming dreams of great wealth Schmidt
is objecting to an order of the court allow
ing him $40 a month out of his $5,000 to
spend. Schmidt thinks this is too much
and he Is trying In district court to have
his guurdian, W. F. Wapplch, removed.
He wants to handle his money himself.
Mr. Wapplch filed a petition In district
court Monday asking the court to make an
order retaining him as guardian. He says
Schmidt is living In a cellar under a house
oh Jones between Thirteenth and Four
teenth streets and refuses to move Into
better quarters, which his means would
Justify. Schmidt wants to increase his
wealth to $10,CO0 and in order to do it he
Is trying to live on $75 a year.
Mr. Wapplch says a guardian should be
continued in an effort to better the condi
tion of the old man.
