In Transfeºrlng i Aeoount From One lank
to Another GClas Sprelkie Took
Out I,500,000.
Ipeculation u to the Causes That Led to
the Transfer-Fair's Check for One
Ilan Francineo, De(. 7.---in last Frli
day ('laus Hlreckles, the sugar king,
transferred his ,ev,,unt, or a iortllon of
it, from the Nevada hbnk to the Bink
of California. To do thi Mr. Spreckles
drew his check fir II,500,000 on the Ne
v'ada bank. The, bit of paIper was cashed
in the afternoolln andI thle money, IIn
goldt coin, was clurtell over toi the flank
olr ('lifornia. Therit. was nothing mys
ti'rious int the matter of the transfl r of
the nmtllllonire's account from one hank
to anotherl, ut a mornling paIer ham
Ieen worrying itself to death over the
change, and worset than that, has beent
trying to worry its reaud--r Into ,prema
ture grave, by giving them a couple of
suggestioun of what might be done with
The name paper says that the check
has cauned wild speculation. Possibly
i.,, but It has been all in the mind of
the writer of the article. Not it word
has been heard in the way of comment
oni the transaction in financial circles.
About two year. ago James 0(. Fair
drew his check for $1,000,000 and tran.
ferred his account from the Nevada
blank to the lIank of California, and
there wan little or no cm,nlent made
on the action of the millil ngmagnate.
Now Mr. Hlpreckles, the sugar king,
hlas done the same thing, only he has
gone the mining man $00.000 better.
The difference between the transfers
of the men was that Fair turned over
his check and Spreckles turned over
the cash. The $1,500.000 was received by
Walter Davidson, the oldest receiving
teller in the Bank of California. The
old gentleman had a corps of assist
ants to help him count the money, and
it took them from 4:30 o'clock in the
afternoon until 7:30 at night. The
weight of the coin was 6,000 pounds. A
gentleman whose name is not unknown
to 'the finannclal world, I.i speaking
of the matter yesterday, said:
"I do not see anything remarkable
in the transfer. It is not an unusual
thing fo a man to change his bank
without p-ejudice to the institution he
leaves. I Jo not know what reason
Mr. Hpreckles had for transferrlng his
account, but presume it was on account
of his friend. Mr. Bishop. The latter
was made vice president of the Bank
of California a few meetings ago, and a
roan, no matter how high his standing
Is, always likes to control business and
be able to bring that business to the
house of which he is a member. Mr.
]isuhop and Mr. Hpreckles have close
business relations in the islands, where
the former has the largest banking
,house In Honolulu. The sugar king
-oes all his banking business through
the house, and possibly the friendship
of the two men was the cause of Fri
day's transfer."
"Is not $1.M.0,00 a large amount of
nmoney for one man to have lying idle
in a bank where it does not draw any
Interet ?"
"Not for a man like Mr. Spreckles,

From a letter written by Rev. J. Guna
derman, of Dimondale, Mich., we are per
mitted to make this extract: "I have no
hesitation in recommending Dr. King's
New Discovery, as the results were al
most marvelous In the case of my wife.
While I was pastor of the Uaptist church
at Rives Junction she was brought down
with pneumonia succeeding Ia grippe.
Terrible paroxysms of coughing would
last for hours with little Interruption, and
it seemed as If she could not survive
them. A friend recommended Dr. King's
New Discovery: It was quick in its work
and highly satisfactory in results." Trial
