This is the first payday since the many disquieting rumors of industrial trouble have been in circulation and the work ers found their regular bonus checks accompanying the usual wage payment. The eastern market especially has been agitated by stories stating that the bonus would be dropped today and that resentment might be expressed by some of the miners. This report was sent out broadcast, but was not accompanied by any reference to the. presence of Joseph Lord, the federal mediator, in whose jurisdiction rests responsibility for any action of the kind. The aggregate of the payroll was fully equal to the amount disbursed for prev ious fortnights and the only difference was the quantity of $1 and $2 bills plac ed in circulation instead of the good old silver dollar or the golden eagles. Ton- ( opah Bonanza. BEAUTIFUL WOMAN TO BE TRIED FOR MURDER UP FOR ARRAIGNMENT SILVER SHIELD SHIPPING By Carl D. Groat, United Press staff correspondent. ESSEN, Germany, Jan. 7, by mail. W. H. Smith, social welfare worker of the Ford Motor company, Detroit, has recently been here to inspect the "colony homes" of the Krupp works. Henry Ford is interested in social welfare problems for his workers, and the Smith trip may result in some new Ford ideas as to workmen's housing. Smith was deeply interested in the housing system, the sick benefits, the old age pensions, and so on instituted long since at the Krupp works. About a third of the Krupp workmen are housed in the colony homes in Es sen and outside. Many of these homes resemble in spme ways a comfortable California bungalow half ' cement or brick and half wood. 1 All are clean and cozy. All have lace curtains at the windows, a bit of vine growing about them, and altogether with an air of 'Gemuethlichkeit' an untranslatable German word which conveys several ; ideas, such as comfort, decency and general well being. , For superannuated workers and their families there is a special colony group. Also there are general hospitals and a lying-in hospital given by Frau Krupp von Bohlcn in memory of one of her children who died. Down in the Rhine country is a special recuperation home for injured or sick workmen, which for a time was used by the American army as a hospital, but which the American authorities recently agreed to turn back for its original purposes inasmuch as it was not longer needed for the dough- During the war the company was forced to build many barracks to take care of extra workers. Some of these are still standing, but, all in all, Essen has readjusted itself from the dwelling standpoint to almost the basis of before the war. . CASE GOES TO TRIAL OVER STATE'S PROTEST By United Press MARYSVILLE, Jan. 26. The trial of Mrs. Gertrude Wilson, charged with the murder of Charles Brown, opened today over the protest of the state attorneys Judge McDaniel denying the motion of the prosecution for a continuance. The judge held the delay would cost the county $500. The motion was based on the illness of District Attorney Manwell Physicians testified that Manwell would be unable to appear in court in less than three weeks. The"court room was pack ed to capacity. The case of Frank Mc Cormack, the brother of Mrs. Wilson and jointly charged with Tier, was con tinued for a week. The first shipment of high grade sil ver ore from the property of the Nevada Silver Shield Mines company in Jeffer son canyon was billed out yesterday by harles W. Taylor, vice president, and consisted of Forty-five sacks of ore having a gross weight of 3.145 pounds. and the estimated value is given at bet ter than $1,000 a ton, or $1,500 for the shipment. The ore was shipped to the Selby smelter and early returns are an ticipated. The ore was brought in by a truck man, who took out a load ot lumher to be used in the construction f f buildings and it is expected that future shipments will be made frequently. Large devel opment is planned for the immediate future on this rich silver mine, which promises to develop at an early date into one of the substantial dividend payers of Nye county. The showing in the mine workings and especially in the winze sunk from the tunnel level at a distance of 300 feet from the portal is reported as showing a wonderful improvement, ltoth as re gards size of orebody and metal con tents.

The trial of Mrs. Fred j. Wilson, beautiful wife of a San Francisco newspaperman, for the murder of Charles Brown, wealthy young sheep raiser, began here today before Superior Judge McDaniel. Difficulty in obtaining a jury was an ticipated because of notoriety given the case. Jointly charged with the slaying of the rancher is Frank McCormick, the woman's brother. His trial is to follow hers. Sister and brother fired simultaneous ly at Brown November, ,1st on the Lynch ranch near here, which just previously had been purchased by Wilson. The shooting followed a quarrel. Mrs. Wil son declared she fired to defend her brother. Evidence introduced at the inquest tended to prove a bullet fired from McCormick's gun ended Brown's life. The prosecution will attempt to show Mrs. Wilson slew Brown while in a jeal ous frenzy because her younger sister, Mrs. Florence Howard, had supplanted her in his affections. Mrs. Wilson is the first woman ever to be tried for murder in Yuba county.
