Washington, D. C.— Contributions to
the treasury's “ conscience fund, ” for
the fiscal year ending June 80 amount
ed to $4,923.15, making a total of
$498,763.64 returned by persons whose
consciences were uneasy over frauds
against the government.
Returns were much larger during
the past year than ever before, chiefly
because o f two unusual contributions,
one for $30,000 and one for $10,000.
It was in 1811 when the first $6 was
sent in. It is an unwritten law of the
department that no effort shall be
made to learn the identity o f the con
tributors, and even in cases where the
writer has confessed to theft no effort
is made to prosecute.
