made that eighty per cent, of tho pen

THE EXPERTS' REPORT.
Hi-Clty Trcnuurer llardtloy'a Statement
to bo Torn to Bhreils.
Philadelphia, June 20. .The mayor's
experts, Taylor Faunco, Lawrence Brown
and Thomas W. Barlow, are now prepar
ing a report whioh is likoly to toar ox
City Treasurer Bardsloy's statoment to
shreds. To-day Mr. Barlow Is busy
writing the report, which will be finished
and presented to Mayor Stuart on Satur
day or Monday next.
Mr. Brown was disposed to be reticent
about the nature ot the report to he pre
sented, but it was learned that tho ex
norts have not enough information to
totally disprove Bardsloy's statement. It
Is said that in direct contradiction of
Bardslev's statoment it will be shown
that 51UU.U0U ot tne monoy wont into
the Bradford mills, and that since Bards
ley became city treasurer fully $3,000,000
have passed through the Koystono Bank
in a fund from which Bardsley drew
various amounts to pay the expenses of
the Bradford mills.
Mr. Graham was asked when Bardsley
would bo brought up for sentence. He
said he did not know, ns Bardsley's
statemout Is being investigated to ascer
tain whether or not it is true. "If it is
true," said Mr. Graham, "why, of course,
he Is entitled to any benefit which may
result from his telling the truth. It it
injnot true, why it is information for the
court to act upon."
