Speculators Said to Be Engaged In
Discounting Liberty Bonds In
Connection With Real Estate
and Other Transactions.
Members of a special commutes of
liberty loan workers ars considering" a
plan for combatting the actlrltles of
unscrupulous speculators and pro-Hun
Influences In what appears to be a Ni-tlon-wlde
attempt to depreciate the dif
ferent Issues of liberty bonds. No re
ports of outright swindle have been
reported In this city where those profi
teering In these Investment securities
thus far have confined their efforts to
discounting extensively these bonds In
connection with real estate and other
Ths effect of these activities has
been to depress the market value of
these securities and has resulted In
more or less uneasiness among many
of the email Investors in these securi
ties. Not a day passes that several
owners of liberty bonds In denomina
tions and amounts ranging from $50 to
to 1300 do not call at the liberty loan
headquarters for Information as to the
aecurtty of fhelr Investments.
"Most of these people, said D. c
Freeman, of the liberty loan commit
tee yesterday, "are Inexperienced In the
ownership of bonds as a continuing in
vestment. But we have no trouble In
allaying their fears when the nature of
the Investment and Its positive security
has been explained. There la no occa
sion for any bolder of liberty bonds to
part with these securities at any great
discount. In view of the fact that
reputable bond dealers report that the
bond market for these securities today
Indicates a healthy upward tendency."
In Its Investigation the special com
mittee Is suspicious that prorGerman
Influences are largely responsible for
the attempts being made to depreciate
the negotiable value of liberty bonds.
The committee Is conducting a thor
ough inquiry and within a few days
will issue a statement for the Informa
tion and assurance of all bondholders.
The final Installment on liberty bonds
of the third Issue, purchased through
the banks, becomes due and payable
next Thursday. August IB. One month
later. September 16. will be the first
Interest-paying period on the third Is
sue of liberty bonds. Owners of these
securities will then be able to detach
the first coupon and collect at any bank
interest for the first six months. The
disbursement of this Interest money
among the holders of liberty bonds. It
Is believed, will have a tendency to re
assure the owners of these securities
and dispel to a large extent any un
easiness now existing.

The wife, Mrs. Florence Hanna, at

secret in order that he might serve his
country. She now says, however, that
he failed to send her any money, and
It was only after she had exhausted
every other recourse, she says, that she
finally decided to go to the District At
torney's office for help.
Some time ago Deputy District At
torney Dempsey wrote to the Army of
ficials ooncernlng Hanna's alleged de

aviator still insisted that he was never
married and did not know the woman
who said she was his wife. They sug
gested that further proof of the mar
riage be forwarded to them.
Yesterday Mr. Dempsey mailed a cer
tified copy of the young soldier's mar
riage certificate, showing that he was
married to Miss Florence E. White at
Sioux Falls, & D., on July 12, 1915.
This certificate is expected to win for

Millions of dollars are epent every year in dental offices without
adequate return. Perhaps forty cents on the dollar goes for ACTUAL
SERVICE RENDERED and sixty cents goes for imaginary REPUTA

This is the richest Nation in all the world, but we have not a dollar to
waste. Paying for SOMETHING YOU DON'T GET Is willful waste a

I have demonstrated for the past 14 years, and proved to thousands

possible at HALF THE PRICES CHARGED BY THE HIGH-PRICED

registered dentists at these prices.
Do not get the Impression for one moment that I am advooatlng
"cheap" or "shoddy" dentistry, for that would be even greater extrava

are not able to pay more than my prloes or that I cater only to the
