t
Chicago, Feb. 26.-.Ihe Tribune
ays that one of the largest, it not
be- largest, thefts from the United
Itates treasury has been unearthedi
a. Chicag'. t
Somewhere between $175,000t and
200-,.000 was taken from the iboal
ub-treasry last week. The money
Las disappeared as completely as it I
tad vanished from the face of the i
tarth. The authorities here and; in
Washington, have been working night
1nd day on. the pobbery since it. w.as.
liscovered..
Chief Wilkiir,, of the United States.
,ecret servle-,. has been keeping, in
kormed by telephone and telegraph of
very development and, according,. tb
legraphic advices, he will leave.
Waghingto& at once to take personal
iargi of the, inrestigation.
,Secietary Shaw, of the treasury dU
parimeiit, was told of the gigantib
theft whjn in. Chicago last week and
was in co,lyference with sub-'treasurer
William Botend.wveck and secret ser
vice officials..\
The money w.is stolen either a week
ago Saturday,. the next day, or It
Mondu.y. The ctances are that it
was abstracted on. Monday. Tdle'
loss was discovered pa Tuesday..
All the money t akeP was in la-rge
bills, bills of the detiomination. of
$1,01)0, $5,000 and $10,oV)0.
Just who d.scovered -th' loss, tihe
sub-treasury officials would not ad
mit. Neither would they teh', from
what department the money waslht
en, nor how the loss was discovar,d.
At first it was believed that the
mu.-t be soie error in the bookkeep
ng. It was thought -to be impossible
that such a large sum or money could
have been abstracted in face. of a:l
the safe guards thrown aroundt Uncle
Sam's strong box.
ECvery man who haw anything -to <to
with the case was called into Treas
urer Holdenbeck's office and put
through an exhaustive examination,
and a still more rigid cross-oxalina
tion. (aptain Porter, of the secrel
service, assisted in the inquiition.
They stood the ordeal every one oi
'them.. They denied all, knowledg(
of the- theft, anid protested their in
