May S3 After cnrefnl inquiry, in which the most skill ful detective talent or Chicago has taken part, little or nothing appears to be known as to w hat has become of William A 5imsrott, grand secretary and treasurer or the Switchmen's Mutual Benefit r.sso ciation. Both the dctcctivra and h friends or tho missing man have theories as to his fate, but the theories have not yet thrown any light upon the mystery surrounding his disappearance. His brothers anil some of his friends still bave hope that he is alive, though the indica tions are that he is not. Some of his lriends advance thn t.linnnr that Simsrott was seized with a sudden aberration of the mind nod that he is now wandering over tho country. This would seem next to impossible, as there is scarce ly a conductor or trainman of an v sort running out of Chicago who was not per sonally acquiunted with Simsrott. Then. he has not lieen mentally depressed nor has he been overworked. He was, on the contrary, in both excellent health mid spirits when he said good-hv to his wife and family Saturday night, May at 10 o'clock, lie intended to iro tu KmiKrilL Ind., to attend a meeliug of the Switch men's association, hut did not reach his destination.

The first information unon this subject is saul to have come from London and to have lieen the result of the dis covery made in connection with the nnvst in that city of the two Italian anarchists larnaru and I'olti. As a rvsuit a number of anarchists be longing to an international society bave oeen luen into custody. The police are unwili.ng to give full details iu regard to the plots, but it is known that the mem. bers of this society nt their meetings drew lots as to wh-j s-hould explode bombs in different European cities One of the prisoners is said t o have been connected with the recent bomb outrages in Liege. ABOLISHES FEDERAL FEES. Stone's Hill I'uts Mnrsliuls Attorneys, and Clerks on Salary. Washington, May Representative William A. St one of l'entisylvunia of the house juatciary committee presented a favorable report on a bill introduced by him some mouths ago to place marshals. district attorneys, mid clerks of the I'nit- ed States courts on salary and abolish the ysteni of fees. The bill fives the salaries for ui'irshals and district attorneys throughout The V'ntted States at t,mil each, and leaves the compensation of clerks at such sum ns the uttornev general shall deciil;-, not exceed ins 1,000 tier annum. Vndcr the present fee system about M per cent, of the prosecutions in the L'nited States courts result in acquittals or dis continuance.
