TALE OF INDIA'S HIDDEN GOLD
Prcclons Metal Drawn Into ihe Em
pire, lint Little of It
-'- - 'CowesOut.
From time immemorial India has ab
sorbed gold, as a sponge absorbs water.
Tho flow of gold to India has always
continued. In the -last twelve years It
"h'aa received 1680,000,000 In gold, partly In
sovereigns and partly In bullion, In addi
tion to enormous quantities of silver. It
all gqea Into, tlie country, but very little
ever comes out ' Lord Rothschild declared
some years ago that ho had noticed that
none of tho smooth gold bars sent to
India from this country ever came back.
What happens to "this great stream of
precious metal, which continuously dis
appears lllco those rivers In desert lands
which lose themselves underground?
The testimony of. r experts la most con
flicting. Somo say It Is hoarded, while a
few are ready to prove by a formidable
array of statistics that It cannot be ex
tensively, hoarded. Those who believe that
India possesses a vast atpre of hoarded
treasure make the wildest guesses at Its
probable total. The most popular estimate
of tho hoarded wealth of India puts, the
total at Jl.SOO.OOO.OOOr which would amount
to 25 per head of the population, but
some credible estimates are far higher.
The experts quarrel, again, about tho
probable effect of 'India's absorbtlon of
gold upon the world's money markets and
the prlcerof commodities. Some say that
all gold-using countries benefit thereby,
while others, such as Sir Edward Holden,
appear to hold that" "the drain of gold to
India" is a potential menace.
' Whether gold Is hoarded In India or
not Is really a question of terms. All
nations hoard gold upon occasion. If the
nation were threatened with a great war
tomorrow wo may depend upon It there
would bo a rush for gold on the part of
those people who possessed both fore
sight and a balance at the bank. It Is
estimated that during the Balkan crisis
the people of central Europe obtained and
hoarded 2300,000,000 In gold. India, has been
subjected to repeated Invasions, and In
numerable Internal wars, and Its people
have never completely lost their hered
itary sense of Insecurity, Banking' facili
ties are still sparse, and It would be sur
prising if Indians did not hoard.
Bqt hoarding does not necessarily mean
burying It In the ground or concealment
In the roofs of houses, though these prac
tices are doubtless extensive.' A very
large proportion of the hoarded wealth of
India Is, however. In the form of gold
and silver ornaments. It Is Into tiiese
ornaments that the bulk of the bullion
and sovereigns, as well as much of the
One often sees In the bazaar of a pros
perous P"un.'sh town little bovs naked savo
for one. Insufficient garment, but, .glitter
ing' wllh! silver ornaments. Tile' girls are
far more lavishly laden. The frequency
of child murders In India Is almost en
tirely due to motives of robbery. With
the growth of prosperity gold ornaments
are largely replacing silver ones, espec
ially among adults. At the Amritsur fair
well-to-dn agriculturist, who formerly
wore necklaces of rupees, are now seen
with strings' of sovereigns around their
It Is the women, however, upon whom
gold ornaments are chiefly lavished, and
the cause ts partly found In the Hindu
law of Inheritance. A Hindu cannot
alienate any portion of his property,
either bv will or by gift, to his wife or
anv of the female members of his family

Word comes from our own spring1
wheat country that owing to tho fact that
the ground was In excellent shape for
receiving the wheat tho growth will bo
started early and under most favorable
conditions. There has been some talk
of tho cutting down of the acreag of th!
three spring wheat states, but advices re

large as that of last year, and that tho
amount seeded to wheat In Montana will
bo more liberal than any year since that
state was placed along with the Dakotas
and Minnesota ns a grower of spring
-wheat- and now known as the fourth
spring wheat stato. ,

wheat sparingly. This fact Is claimed by

$7.00 on Tuesday, The clipped lambs sold
mostly nt $7,35U7.75 and on' down to $7.00,

MINE DISASTER AND DAMAGES
Weaj Vlrn-tnln's Compensation I.nvr
and It" nenrlnn; on Bccles
The frightful catastrophe which killed
perhaps 170 peoplo In mine No. 5 of the
New River Collieries company at Kccles
will havo far-reaching effect upon the
workmen's compensation law of West Vir
ginia which went Into effect last Ooto
ber. This law was modelled upon tho
original Ohio law and created . a. Prac
tical monopoly for an assessment fund to
be administered by the sUte tnrough a
so-called Public Service commission
It was impossible last night to discover
whether the ownsrs of the Ecelcs mine
had Insured their liability under the law
In tho state fund. If they did the fund
wilt' be bankrupt for some time to come
npd it Is a question whether or not tha
dependents of those killed will ever -get
Tho West Virginia schemo allows the
employer to der;ld? whether or not he
will Insure with the state. If ha does
Insure an employe who decides to sue will
lie confronted with the common law de
fenses -,of contributory negligence, act of
follow servant and assumption .of risk,
If he does not Insure he has practically
no defense against 4 suit brought by the
Injured employe or hli dependents.
The scalo of compensation provided
reasonable enough from an employer's
standpoint, but casualty Insurance men
last night estimated that either the? state
or .tne mining company owes 10 tne oe
reaved by the accident at least $500,000.
Compensation for death Is divided as 101
Reasonable funeral expenses, not to ex
ceca no in eacn.'cs, io me wiaow or
invalid widower, $20 a month, .and $5
month additional for each child! under
the age of legal employment, the total
(Tot to exceed $35. a month. It was esti
mated that a widow aged 23 with three,
'children could reasonably be expected to
receive a total' of $12,000 under this law.
tTo other persons wholly dependent If
there Is no widow, invalid widower or
gilld under the age of legal employment,
igjlaw provides that 60 , per fCrnf 5( tjie
average mommy support, receiyea. irom
the deceased during the preceding year
shall be paid to an extent not exceeding
$20 a month for six years
If the deceased was a single' minor, a
dependent parent Is entitled to receive
CO per cent of the earnings not to exceed
$3 -a week until the time the deceased
would have become 21 years of age.
If only partial dependents survive, they,
are to receive 60 per cent of the average
monthly support for six years.
Payments to a widow or Invalid widower
oease on remarriage and to children on
reaching tho legal age ot employment, 14
The news from this latest mine disas
ter Is to the effect that those who es
caped were uninjured, so that there will
be little liability for disability which is
based upon 60 per cent of the average

nothing has developed that should change
