Tlio infoi illation concerning the miss

in Tub Kvn.viso Por, has occasioned
cousldcrnble comment, and the methods
employed by the Bureau of Kngravlng
and Printing to protect the Government
against the loss of any of thp enormous

would not prove uninteresting at this
Thoro is a system of chocks and counter-cheeks

renders detection of tlio loss of a sheet or
a number of sheets nlmot a certainty

In this ovent tho aupeilnlcnuont of the

Yesterday thgse tactics woro repotted,

his views as to the alleged manage

"Assuming that tho newspaper ac
count of tbo loss bo correct (but you
know they necessarily mako mistakes) I
will stato that it only verifies a prediction
which I made during my incumbency to
tho effect that thu removal of the scaling
branch of tho Bureau to tlio Treasury
would result, sooner or later, in bome
thlng of this kind."
Continuing, ho baid: "Prior to tho re
moval which I have mentioned tho work
on tho notes aud hecurities was com
pleted at the Bureau, aud delivered on
requisitions to tlio Treasurer of tlio
United States, who duly receipted for
tiieni, tints vesting tno entiiu responsi
bility with tbo Chief of the Bureiu."
Ho further said: "Whon tho matter of
the transfer was under advisement, I
piot sled vigorously against tho change,
for it would certainly divide the respon
sibility, and it seomed to mo an unneces
