The world supply of wheat is ap

The plot, which private detectives
declare Miss Wise has laid bare by
confession, is a most extraordinary
one. Beginning in the barber shop
at 6 Turk street, where Spencer
spent his winter vacation in cutting
hair. th3 plan is saM to have in
volved forgery, masquerade and other
Th- prize, say the detectives, was
the bank account of Mrs. Florence
Anderson Spencer, wife of the hero
of t diamond. Miss Wise is said
to possess so i.trong a resemblance
to Mrs. Spencer as to be practically
her double. The Spencers had been
married since September.
At the barber shop, the detectives de
clare, between customers Spencer used
hi3 t'me in prevailing upon Miss Wise
the manicurist, to aid him in his plan.
Detectives say that the girl confessed
to having gone with Spencer to San
Jose on December 13, and that there
Spencer instructed !;er to imitate his
wire s mannerisms and to tell cor
rectly the story ..f his wife's life.
The next step in the plot was when
the First National bank of this city
received a wire, signed "Mrs. Flor

notification from San Francisco, and
was puspicious, but so perfectly did
the woman fit tiie tests that he in
structed her to return later. Mean
time, the cashier secured Mrs. Ander
son's description and the "code" ques

the woman returned she fitted the tests
Still Bryaut was suspicious and only
gave her $L'00. The detectives say
she returned with this to San Francisco;
that Spencer gave her $l'0 and with
the re:,t departed for Stockton, where
he was arrested.
The girl at first was inclined to
talk freely, but later became silent.
