iDEAL TREASURE
Old Iron Pot Containing $2,000
in Gold Unearthed Near
Madrid.
Associated Frees Cable to The ftvealns
Times.
Madrid, May 9.—Like a fairy tale is
the story published in the Madrid press
th}s week of the sudden wealth ac
quired by Andres Gonzalez, a peasant
of Colmenar to Oreja. Stnjck by the
peculiar appearance of apiece of stone
sticking out of the ground near his
house, he dug and brought to light an
earthenware pot full of gold coin.
Andres took' into his confidence his
wife, brother, and sister-in-law, and it
was decided that the matter must be.
kept quiet. A few days later the two
men set out for this city and sold
their treasure, for some $2,000.
In order 'to allay the suspicions of
the neighbors, it was arranged that
Andres should write his brother a let
ter saying that he had won the money
in a lottery.' But, unfortunately, the
women concerned could not keep the
story of their wonderful luclc quiet,
and as soon as the story leaked out
Andres received a visit from a lawyer
who claimed half the.proceeds on be
half of the landlord, to which the
latter is entitled by the law of Spain.
At first Andres denied all knowledge
of the find, but Involving himself after
wards in contradictions, he had to
make a clean breast of the affair and
pay up.
But his troubles did not end here.
He was summoned before.a magistrate
on a charge of concealing treasure
trovei. He was convicted and sent to",
jail for six months, while the others
concerned got off with sentences- of
two months each for aiding and abetr
ting the concealment otlthe treasure.

New York, May 9.—Plans had been
made to have the funeral today of
Chas. L. Spier, the Staten Island
business man who was shot In so
mysterious a manner that the authori
ties cannot determine whether he was
murdered or committed suicide.
The bullet which caused Mr. Spier's
death had not been located and the
authorities desisted from an attempt
to find it because Mrs. Spier objected
to the mutiliation of her husband's
body. As the authorities differed as
to whether the bullet came from Mr.
Spier's own revolver, it was reported
today that District Attorney John J.
Kenney of Staten Island would re
fuse to allow the funeral to proceed
until a complete autopsy had been
made. Mr. Kenney said the bullet that
killed Spier should be found in order
to determine whether or not he was
killed by his own revolver.
1
Mrs. Spier, widow of the dead man,
said: "She could not see what good
it would do to find the bullet as that
would prove nothing." A report was
published today that there was a
scene at a prominent Staten Island
club recently which resulted In the
request that Spier leave, the club.. The
cause ot' it is unknown!

Constantinople, May 9.—The arbi

Odysseus by the Turkish authorities
recently threatened friction between
Turkey and another European power,
bu the energetic action of the German
ambassador. Baron von Bleberstein,
quickly solved the difficulty.
The OdysBeus was discharging, her
cargo at Chibuklu when she was
boarded by the authorities and remov
ed to Kavak, where she was anchored
beneath the batteries, the Turks false
ly claiming that the vessel had explo
sives on board.
The ambassador protested urgently
but unavailingly, whereupon he took
a few sailors from a German guard
ship, boarded the Odysseus, unfurled
the diplomatic flag and took the ship
from under the guns of Kavak to her
dock at Chibuklu, where watch was
kept over her while she completed the
discharge of her cargo. On returning
to the embassy the ambassador found
the state chancellor awaiting him with
apoligies and explanations.
