Chicago, March 4.Mystery hangs

$17$,000 from the sub-treasury. Al
though the federal officials feel certain
the crime was committed by some em
ploye the latest developments find
them as far as ever from a solution.
Chief Wllkie, who came to Chicago in
an optimistic frame of mind, has set
sled down to a dogged still hunt that,
as he admitted, may be protracted
through weeks and even months.
The chief event of the day was the
examination of George W. Fitzgerald,
the assorting teller, from whose cage
he money disappeared and who rethe
ported the loss, by Chief Wilkle. This
was the first time that Fitzgerald had
come up before the head of the gov

of the interview seemed to be the dis
missal as useless of a clew for which
much had been hoped.

ing upon the president for all th pa

of the question of having the Panama
canal built by contract and in support
of the resolution said that Mr. Oliver
had complied with all the require

jected after a delay of a month or
mere. He expressed dissatisfaction
with the course of the canal manage
ment and said that his suspicion led
him to believe that the intention had
been to compel Mr. Oliver "to let in
some of his competitors who were too
greedy on thefirstbid."
Senators Hopkias and Lodge made
objection to the present consideration
of the Tillman resolution and under
the rules of the senate it went over
until another day. In the course of
discussion Senator Carmack said i
that Mr. Oliver had spent from $39,000
to $40,000 of bis own money in com

"There was not a single new pomt

President Harriman also pointed

structed its conferees on the pension
appropriation bill to insist on retain
ing the eighteen pension agencies lo
cated throughout the country. Tho
house abolished seventeen of theso
agencies, retaining only the one at
Washington This action was charac
terized in the senate as "without
rhyme or reason," revolutionary and a
"desire to centralize all power
Washington." Senators McCumbe
Cullom, Heyburn, Hopkins, Curtlaffia
Long, Scott, Beveridge, HansbroughJ
Allison, Frye, Carmack, Gallinger and
Lodge each spoke in support of re
taining all the agencies The reason
of the hois was said to be one of
economy, but the senators contended
that the change proposed would result
in a decidedly more expensive system.
Mr Scott said hefradbeen informed
by the commissionei' of pensions that
