the legislative session will be return

cording to a statement made by

And it is claimed other indictments

Representative Breckmeyer who Way

Are Being Circulated In Texas Offi

Fort Worth Texas May 5 Coun
leit 5 gold pieces believed to have
made in Mexico are beginning
to find their way across the border
and local federal authoiities as well
as fcdeial authoiities in other cities
in Texas have been asked to investi
gate The counterfeits are of four
different dates 1SS0 1SS1 1884 and
1893 and are said to be such perfect
imitations of United States gold coins
that detection is decidedly difficult
Inasmuch as four dates are being used
it is certain that at least four molds
are being operated hence the counter
feiting is being carried on in an ex
tensive way The weight appearance
and ring of the queer gold pieces is
identical with the genuine coins and
the only way in which the counteifeit
ma be detected is by a close inspec
tion The standard gold coins of the
United States aie with dies while this
Mexican counterfeit is a cast coin
iv >
This difference is so minute how
ever that even a man accustomed to
handling coins would have trouble In
distinguishing between the counter
feit and the genuine
The generally accepted theory of
the authorities is that the coins are
being made in the Mexican interior
and circulated through the many min
ing camps of Uie sister republic The
coins are now finding their way across
the border into the United States and
the authorities are exertmely anxious
to break up the gang that promises to
flood the southwest with bad money
