Stockton, Feb. 28. Jesus Denltez ot
khls city offered to sell his entire fami
ly, four children and his wife, for JjO,
according to his wife, who has com
menced a suit for divorce. When hf
broughl tho man, to whom ho Intended
making the sale to his home, Mrs Den

that her husband had the right to dls
pose of her as he wished.
She spoke to her son, who Is about
IS years of age, about It, and he, being
more versed In tho wajs of the world
told his mother the father could not
sell her or the children. Mrs. Denltez
then consulted an attorney, and, after

months ago from Fresno, Is too lazy to
work and has not contributed to the
support of tho family.
He negotiated with C. Sierras to
make the sale and even took him to his

to see If sho was worth the sum named.
She Isu Mexican and not at all pietty.

Ono of the saddest deaths In the

by the flames and perished miserably.
Unlike many who try to do the sort
of work Mrs Foster accomplished, she
was regarded as a friend by all the
prison and court officials Her aid to
prisoners was practical and resulted
In much good Many Judges and other
officials testified their sincere r-spect
for her by nttendlng her funeral, which
assumed something ot tho character
of a public and official ceremony.

Roberts, United States Treasurer, for
permission to deposit $20,000,000 in
gold coin In the Sub-Treasury at New
York, to be paid to correspondents in
San Francisco, there was much specu
lation among the officials of the Gov
ernment financial bureaus concerning
the possible effect that such a heav
draft would have on the New York
money market, and also as to the pur
pose ot the bankers In requesting such
a transfer of currency.
The officials were able to say that thn
transfer would be made by the middle
of next month, nnd that the money was
to be shipped to Orient Further than
this there was little Information ob
tainable nt the department. This Is
the largest transfer of gold which has
ever been recorded by the officials here.
From statements from unofficial
sources It Is believed that Japan has
