who havt boon iissistitiK in tho prosecution
of lliirlnn W. (Ilbsnn, issued a statement
lust night n-"TtiiiK th:it tli woman who

(Siterrn anil x.-iicl that ns Mm. I'ntronolli
Monsehlk sh hid sinned a waiver of
citntinn which placed tho ndmlnlstrntlnn
of tho estate of Mrs. Hohji Monschlk
KkiIk) In tho hands of Mr. (libson, wan
guilty of fraud. According to this Mate
ment tho woman has confessed that her
allegations with resioct to (Hhson's
affairs woro falM and she now swear
to even more ttstoundinK circumstances
to explain her previous story.
She declares that who was Induced
by tho promise that sho would lie tkon
cam of to manufacture her story no that
she might acquaint herself with facts
in tho possession of tho prosecutors of
Gibson nnd then lietray them to thoso
who are conducting the defence, of the im
prisoned lawyer. According to Mr. Wits
servofrel she held resolutely to this pur
pose until handwriting experts proved
the difference lietweon her signature
and that on tho waiver of citation, and her
Identity ns tho signer of tho waiver was
denied by Donald I.yon. the Ilrooklyn
notary public lieforo whom the signature
Mr. Wasservogel did not permit any
one to see more than the signature of the
woman when ho was asked to show tho
signed affidavit he says she mado exiting
her own untruthfulness nnd Involving
the name of one of the attorneys who is
associated with thoM who are defending
(libson. Ho says that tho woman does
not know the lawyer by name, hut that
ho identified his picture ns that of tho
man who urged her to fako her story.
Detectives then took the photograph'
to Klmira, ho nays, and had it identified
there as the man who had lioon seen
talking to tho solf-styled Roso Ouerra.
Mr. Sasservogel's statement follows:
On October 3 a telephone message was
received by llltriet Attorney Itoecrs of
Oranee county Matins that Itose Oiicrrn was
In Wtlkeshnrre, I'.i. lingers aked Deputy
AMlMant District Attorney Murphy to
look the matter up. Mr. .Murphy went to
WllkesbRrre, found the, woman ami brought
her with him to New York a week ago lnt
She told a story showing an hit Unite
knov l"dge of tilbson'saftalrs and then asked:
Will you take ine before the (irancl .lury
to-morrow?" That was on Suniliy, a week
ago. Hoeniim of this remark her story
was Investigated. We obtained specimen
nf her handwriting, especially the signa
ture, "IVtrnnell.i Meti-i.hlk " 'I'll" speci
mens seemed to tally and she then was
i on front ed by Donald l,vnn, the notary
public, lie ould nol Identify lier. Sped
ni"n ol her handwriting were inspected by
Da til N l arvallio, an eiperl. Me re
ported that the pecliuens did not cor
respond with Hi" I'eironelU Mensclilk
signilure on (lie in the Surrogate's ofllce.
When the unman was told this him broke
down, confessing that her appearance in the
case as part of a plot to have iw take her
before the (iraiiil .tury of Orange county
and also to worm herself into our confidence
and thus gel a line on the witnesses for the
prosecution and what they will testify to.
aiie made a sworn statement implicating
a man known to hern Singer and then told
us that she had been living in Klmira, S' V ,
for the last two months as second cook In
the t'ity Club. She claims this lawyer
came to her on September 27 nnd said that
he understood that she had been able to
help herself nut of a few difficulties by
her wits and that he wanted to use her in a
case In which he was interested, the liibsijii
case. She bays he told her shu was to go on
Wednesday. October 2, to Wilkesbarre,
there to cet in touch with the District t-
torney of Orange county under the name
of Rose (iuerra and to tell him about her
connections with tilbson. She says she
was also to say sh was the same Hoso
Cinerra who was mixed up in tho Tralnor
ca.'j and to try to find out such facts front
the prosecution would bo of'use to tho
Her sworn ftatement was turned over
to detectives who took the photograph
of the lawyer named by her to Klmira and
thero had It Identified as that of tho man
who had been seen talking to her by men
In that city.
The algnaturo to tho woman's state,
ment, as thown by Mr Wasoervogel,
was "Holen I-wra Rockwell," and that in
supposedly her right name. When ques
tioned further about bis statement, and
tho story ho says tho woman now tells,
Mr. Wasservogol said It-joukl be seen
that if this woman had got to the wit
ness stand it could have been alleged
that tho Indictment of (iibson was ob
tained by is-rjured testimony, or on cross
examination, by showing that her story
was false, the defence could havo got
away from tho strong evident) that
the prosecution had.
When the statement issued by Mr.
Wasservogol was read to Jacob J. Singer,
a young Jersey City attorney who has
been associated with Hobert H, Klder ill
tho defence of (libnon, he said:
"This woman's alleged story of hor

was brought here by Mr. Murphy, has
been poking fun at tho prosecution, had

Phoebe Ann Worth wan being ac
claimed at Progressive, hendaunrters In

llronx, a member of tho Progressive,
finance committee. Site swallowed tho
party emblem, a metnl moose. It haa
been In Phoobo Ann for ten days now
nnd her father tells his friends she la
thriving on It.
It seems that Phocho Ann and her
young elder sister fairly wallow In Hull
Moose buttons. T.helr playroom is full
of them nnd they use them in pretty
nearly every game. One day when Phoebo
Ann set up a holler Papa Worth sur
mised maybe she had eaten a moose.
Her sister confirmed the suspicion nnd
the family physician wnB forthwith
culled In. The doctor was afraid It
might hurt her, but after she luid got
over the pain caused by the passago
down her throat she didn't seem to be
In the least trouble, and lias been hav
ing a fine time of It since.
However. Phoebo Ann's father went
to .1 nines M. Hruce. former Hull Moose
county chairman In Westchester county,
nnd connected with tho local head
ilttartcrs, and poured nut his tale of
woe. Mr. Hruce Immediately sat down
and telegraphed tho Chicago head
quarters, nil those buttons being manu
factured in Chicago, to know what the
thing was made of nnd whether Phoebo
Ann might not be poisoned by her diet.
Thero was a commotion In tho Chicago
heaihiunrters when the message arrived
nnd n scurrying to discover the cheml
cnl composition of a metal moose. Than
this answer wns sent:
"Think no danger. Huttnn m.inufnc
finer doesn't know proportion, but tlu-y

Phoebe Ann's n wonder."
That reassured Papn Worth consider
ably. He went bnck home Inst night
Just tickled to death over Phoebe Ann.
The button was still there nnd Phoebo
Ann wns sending a big bowl of bread
and milk down to keep It company.

of the United States would giva him its
backing. Department officials refused
to consider his suggestions and ho was
requested not to repeat his proposal.
etosquez was Minister of Finance in
tho Cabinet of President Ramon Caceres,
who was nssasslnated last winter. In
fact tho unpopularity of Caceros's admin
istration was said to be duo to the trynnny
of his Minister of Finance, who exerted a
powerful influenco in tho affairs of tho

protector forced Velasquez to floo. and he

W.viitiNtiroN, Oct. 14. -The railroads
met another disappointment to-day when
the Interstate Commerce Commission
refused their application for permission
to Intervene as defendants in the express
companies caao. This means that the
commission will deal only with the ex
press companies, in Die question of
rate reductions and that any readjust
ment of the carriers contracts with the
express companies must be made with
them alone. Tho commission's decision
Indicates that the express companies will
fight among themselves over the division
of revenue derived from the public.
The Government's Investigation has
shown that tho railroad oomanles re
ceive from 60 to 85 centa out of every
aonar collected ny ine express com
panies. The representatives of the ex
press companies have contended that if
the commission insisted upon putting
Into effect their reduced rates ordered
there would be a loss of $33.0(.(ioo a year
to the express companies of tho country
and that this loss will wipe out their
The railroad officers pointed out that
their own threatened loss of revenue,
coming on top of staggering increases in
operating expense, made it of the utmost
importance to them that their voice
should be heard in tho case.
While the action of the ectmmlssion Is a
complete-repulft for'tho railroads it rep
resents at least a temporary victory for
the express companies. It gives them
thirty days additional time before the
commission makes effective its order re
The contention of the express com
panies that the rates fixed by the com
mission through Its zone svstem were so
low that theyr could not operate except at
a lose evidently impressed the commission,
At any rate, the commission haa com
promised the matter by taking upon itself
the duty of formulating schedules of rates
covering the entire United States, sub
mitting them to the express companies
and directing the latter to compare rev
enues based upon theso new proposed
rates with revenues collected at a corre
sponding period under present rates.
This will give the commission an oppor
tunity to judge Just exactly what effect
its proposed cuta will have on the revenue
of the express companies. The proposed
rates will not be made effective until after
the test is completed.
The opinion is expressed by the com
mission that it will be impossible to make
new express rates effective before early
next spring. During the fiscal year 1811
the thirteen express companies under in
