day. This letter came from Jlrs. Emma
Peterson, of Grenshaw, Pa., another
relative or Anna Bachman, an eighteen-year-old
Danish girl whose failure to
reach Chicago started the Investigation.
Mrs Peterson begged Silverson to urge
Federal officials not to let the investi

the missing Bachman girl who reached
New York on March 17, and started for
Chicago and that none of them had
learned her fate.
" Will Not Guess.
"I do not want to even hazard a
cuess as to the fate of the girls," said
Silverson. "I would not Increase the
Xear and the anxiety that their rela

have -vanished as 'completely as if they
were swallowed. It is more than three
ueelis now since they disappeared. Had
any one of them arrived safely at her
destination it Is practically certain that
her relatives would have reported to
the authorities when the newspapers
printed stories of their disappearance."

who saw it declared, was not the work
of a professional beggar, but of an ig

Col. Goethals Narrowly
Escapes Unique Honor
Col. George W. Goethals. builder of
the Panama canal, narrowly missed an
honor that has never before been con
ferred by the United States Govern

very much alive Is all that made neces

It had been proposed by Treasury of

on the new issue of $10,000 Panama
canal bonds, and such action had been
decided upon, when Treasury officials
suddenly discovered that .the law for
bids the portrait of a living man upon
the currency or Government bonds.
