In French circles it was said today that the treaty as again submitted to the Germans will he much less altered than Inis been generally supposed. Premier Clemenceau is especially Hrm in his refusal to agree to the ad mission of Germany !«• the league of nations immediately. The French hold that they understood German psychol ogy belter than the allies, and realize what the increasing arrogance of the last few weeks means. They sa.v they appreciate how much this art ogam e would lie increased if the peace con ference should yield to the German demands for Immediate admission to the league. The French, it is under stood. are willing that the Germans should he admitted later hut insist that this admission must not he in compliance with wluit they term ''Ger many's present haughty demand. It was indicated that France was still determined not to agree to any material changes In the treaty. SPURIOUS GOLD COINS SEIZED BY FEDERAL MEN Imitations of Famous California Coin age Are Held to Be Illegal, Al though Not Counterfeiting. Chicago. June V2.—Several thou sand spurious gold coins, valued at tip proxiuuilcly Sô.iHHi, were seized yester day in various Jewelry establishments Ii.y I'ulted States secret service op eratives In a canvass led by ('apt. Thomas I. Porter, local head of the secret service. The coins are imitations of gold pieces of 2Ö, Ö0 and 7Ö cents, and .$1 denominations issued by the California government in 1ST.I. before that state was recognized as a part of the union. II lias been held in the past that the coinage of California was not recog nized by the United States govern ment and therefore Jewelers who have been making imitations for sale were not amenable to counterfeiting laws. Jewelers throughout the country using the spurious coins for insertion in pieces of jewelry and as parts of chains and rings, have been making them In such quantities that the court of California recently rendered de et-slons holding that the manufacture of stnh coins of less than 24 carats gold (the weight of the gold used in the original coinage) was illegal.

THE FLAVOR SO DOES THE UII'JI V. 0 ■ MOTORS INSTEAD OF DOGS trip Over the Cascades In a Gasoline Sleigh Was a Distinct Success. A spectacular trial trip was recently made across the Cascades In a motor fcleigh, and a number of photographs, taken at various stages of the Journey, hro reproduced in Popular Mechan ics. The achievement of the motor sleigh was almost as amazing ns that of the first army tank, conquering, as It did, all kinds of obstacles. Skimming the surface of snowfalls, old or new, the strange little vehicle broke its way through primeval passes with never a stumble. The rescue of an automobile, hopelessly stalled In the drifts of Sno quulmle pass, was a mere Incident In Its progress. Crossing a deep gully on a pair of hemlock poles was but one of the day's adventures. The intended substitution of the motor sleigh for the dog drawn sledges of Alasku's snow bound post trails means more to the people of that great territory than may be generally realized. Jack London and others have limned »he malemute as a romantic figure; but the followers of the trail know well lie Is never that. It Is the elimination of much human hard ship. as well as canine inefficiency, that recommends the gasoline method. Quick Action Called For.
