Find Deficiency In U. S. Accounts.
Washington. Footing up accounts,
Uncle Sam found a deficiency of ,
054,000 for the month of April. Ex
clusive of Panama canal aud public
transactions, the receipts for April
amounted to $53,452,000, while dis
bursements reached 57,10G,000.
Up to date for the current fiscal
year, however, there is a surplus of or
dinary receipts over ordinary dis
bursements of $8,966,000 against a
deficit a year ago of $12,580,000.
Customs receipts for last month fell
off $2,500,000 as compared with April,

A big factor in the increased expen
ditureH for the month Just closed was
the peiiHlon puymonts under the new
law. These exceeded the pension dis
bursements of April, 1912, by $3,

fund is $111,383,000, including a work

$73,077,000, which It is expected, will
soon be decreased by $10,000,000 un

Fort Saaitk, Ark. That several sen
national exposes are expected in con
nection with tke alleged discovery by
government oaVrials that Indiana in
eastern Oklahoma bare been poisoned
I by land sharks who later inherited
the property of the victims, became
'known when k was learned that the
coils are tightening around an under-
taker and a physician, residents of
tke Choctaw nation, and their arrest
to momentarily expected, according
to statements made in this city.
Officials who hare been investigat
ing a dozen or more mysterious deaths
of Indian land owners in the Choctaw
and Chickasaw nations, have dis
covered that the undertaker and physi
cian under suspicion have been called
in their respective capacities to sup
ply their services in at !et six cases,
where the Indians died suddenly. Fed
eral officials aver that they were em
ployed to make bogus oaths aa to the
cause of the deaths, being in collusion
with the land grafters.
Two real estate dealers of Hugo,
Oklahoma, are already accused in
state warrants with giving an Indian
a quantity of poisoned whisky which,
however, he did not drink.
Copper King Made Defendant.

on sugar mill property at San Benito
valued at nearly $350,000. The plain
tiff is the San Benito Sugar Manufac

more in the surrounding streets.
Permission to hold a meeting waa

husky police sergeant standing on the
plinth, hurled the speaker down on
the heads of the crowd below.
The crowd then rushed the plinth
and endeavored to replace the speak

efforts would prove successfal, but
mounted police ruthlessly rode down
the rioters. James Keir Hardie tren
intervened and the socialist speaker
was allowed to regain his place.

to climb the plinth. The police below
tried to. pull her back, but sympathiz

The struggle angered the crowd and
the disorder became so general that
Commissioner Wells, commanding tho
mounted police, ordered the White
hall side cleared. The order was car
ried out so roughly by tho horsemen
that Commissioner Wells, noting the
temper of the crowd, retired in favor
of another commissioner. As lie was
