Chicago, 'June 10.—The American
confidence man reaped a harvest of
more than $10,900.00<> last year, ac-
cording to figures compiled by Chi-
cago authorities. This Is the approx-
imate amount actually collected from
| the credulous public by professional
confidence operators and does not in-
clude the millions gathered In an-
nually by the various stockjobbing
The crude devices of the old time
confidence man, with his shell game,
three card monte, gold brick, green
goods, money changing and lemon
j games, have given way to modern
j methods, more complex and more
| The really successful confidence
! men of today usually have summer
1 and winter homes, ride In limousines
and are aided by richly gowned
women, authorities say. They are
educated and far- more clever than
their brothers of old days, who«e
favorite trick in Chicago was to sell
the Masonic temple to a "rube" for a
small sum. or agree to make the
building "turn around."
Land selling schemes, peddling of
worthless mine and oil well stock,
wire tapping and "fake" sporting
events are now the hand maidens of
the modern confidence man, who
matches wits with the banker, cap-
italist and lawyer, instead of dealing
with the ignorant ruralllte. Nearly
all the victims of a Chicago gang re-
cently sent to the penitentiary were
bankers .Jid business men. The
gang's loot aggregated more than half
a million dollars a year.
Fear of publicity keeps most vlc-
Ums quiet, thus giving the high class
confidence man a certain degree of
immunity, authorities say. They add
that federal prosecution for using tho
malls to defraud has been a big fac-
tor In breaking up gangs and recently
brought, about conviction of half a
dozen leading confidence workers.
"Tom Brown, who came from De-
troit and made h>» headquarters Tn
New York, was father of the present
type of confidence upan," said Wil-
liam A. Plnkerton, veteran detective,
In striking a comparison between the
old and new swindlers. "He operated
forty years ago and formerly * was a
three card -nonte man. He was
known as a bunco steerer and won by
fake lottery schemes and other crook-
ed gamb'ing devices. Then he In-
vented the gold brick with which he
toured the country. The green goods

imitators who picked up thousands

and often clean up WM,M0 in

$1,000 a big Job.
"Victims are not really honest at
heart for they often enter into
scheme to cheat another fellow. The
small town banker and business man
has proved a shining mark for
swindlers. They cannot risk thoir
reputations by complaining. It Is
surprising how many shrewd business
men fall into the net."

ITALY AND AUSTRIA
JAMIE BARTON, Mgr.
(Correspondence of* the Associated Press.)
Vienna, May 18.—A new turn has
been given to the dispute between
Italy and Austria over art collections
by the statement that former Em-
peror Charles has carried off to
Swltaerland the Imperial Jewels, the
whole of which are regarded in Aus-
tria as being his private property but
claims for which have been filed by
Italy, particularly the Florentine dia-
mond of 133 1-3 carats.
The Italian commissioner, Profes-
or D'Ancona, has stated that this
diamond formed part of the collection
left to the city of Florence under the
will of Anna Maria A.edlcl but that It
was carried off by the house of Aus-
tria in 1748 when Duke Leopold be-
came emperor of Austria. He said
that the Austrian government had
been notified of the Italian claims to
this Jewel months ago. and that If It
permitted T"r peror Charles to carry
It away it would he necessary to ob-
tain possession of It again. It Is un-
known here whether the emperor has
disposed of the diamond while in
Switzerland in order to pay his living
Professor D'Ancona has carefully
traced the history of this remarkable

"Large, hard pimples caqte on my

"This trouble lasted about two
years before I used Cuticura. They
gave relief in one hour, and I was
healed with one cake of Soap and one
