"We are opposed." says this report,
"to grunting special privileges to the
city depositories, selected In Philadel
phia, Ilurrlpburg and Pittsburg, while
the country banks are required to pay
Interest. We, therefore, recommend
the passage of an act placing upon an
equal basis all bunki that receive state
money without regard to location."

Washington. March '). Air. IT. Hnr
rlng, senior members of the detective
firm of Ikirrlng ft -McSweeney, Is here
today, lie Just came flom New Yoik,
where C. A. (ilbson, one of their detec
tives, is on trial for perjuiy. Air. Gib
son is tlie man who made tlie complaint
ngnlnsi Van Vnlkenberg in the now
famous senatorial bribery case. Air.
Hairing says that lie suspected from
the first that there was n job in the
prosecution of Gibson for tlie purpose
of disqualifying him as a witness in
the bribery cases, although It Is a fact
that Gibson cuts very little figure in
those enses. Gibson, snys Air. Uarring,
made the coinplulnt on "Information
"What Glbs-on knows about the Van
Vnlkenburg case can be substantiated
by a dozen other witnesses," says liar
ring. "However, the Van Valkenburg
people evidently didn't know this and
consl'dered h!m an important witness.
To whnt ends people who llnd them
selves In a hole will go, cropped out
yesterday during tlie trial of Gibson.
When Spear and Carey, attorneys of
Jersey City, took tlie stand in behalf
ot Gibson, they testified that about
four or live weeks ngo a detective
mimed Perkins, of Pittsburg, and an
other mnn, alleging to be Attorney
liergner, of Ilnrrisburg. came to them
and proposed that they should tnKO
measures to furnish the proof that the
said C. A. Gibson was unworthy of be
lief and entirely unreliable. As they
put it. they were told to get up som'o
scheme to disqualify Glbsnn as a wit
ness They at llrst set to work and
empioyeu (.nosun on a lane case, ex
pecting that If Gibson wns a man of
such character as reported to him, he
would mnke false reports to them and
to this end they had him shadowed by
other detectives. Nevertheless, Gibson,
ns was testified to by Spear and Carey,
reported nothing but actual facts, it
appeared to us from the copies of the
reports that came to our agency that
something was wrong nbout the whole
business and we suspected that Gibson
was being made a tool in some black
mailing scheme, our Mr. AlcSweenoy
wrote to Gibson, after ho had been
In tho case about two weeks to demand
from his client a full statement ex
plaining as to tlie aim object of ln
wui-k. mill ii such explanation were not
satisfactory to drou tlie case thon and
there. The caso was dropped. It isn't
quite clear to us yet through what
agency the Shray divorce case in which
Gibson was compelled to appear as u
witness and which resulted In his ur
rest, was drugged on to the court cal
endar after t had been dead since IS!).",.
There seems, however, to he no doubt
now that the trial of this case was part
and parcel of a scheme to ruin Gibson."
Air. Harrlng says that a personal
light has been made upon his agency
ever since their connection with the
Van Valkenburg case, but that they
are now icady to turn tlie tables nml
I every man Implicated In this scheme
will have an opportunity of testing Jer
sey justice. Air. Hairing had a long
talk with Senator Penrose this morn
ing about the libel suit against Van
Valkenburg and It is generally under
stood that the case Will In. vigoumsiy

York this ufteinoon.
