"BIG FOUR "NOT. SENTENCED
Judge Lippincott Wants More
Time to Consider the Gases,
Allen MpDcrmott Pleads for tho
Convicted Knee Track Men.
Dennis McLaughlin, Gottlieb Wal
baum, Nicholas Cruelus and John C.
Carr, the "Big Four" of the 3uUenburc
race track, who were Indicted and two
weeks ago pleaded guilty to conducting
a disorderly house at Quttenburg race
track, were not sentenced to-day In
Jersey City as It was expected they
Judges Lippincott, Kenny, Hudspeth
and Hoffman were on the bench, when
court opened, Allan McDermott, counsel
for the defendants, made a plea for
clemency. He told of the rise and fall
of racing in New Jersey, and said that
sensible men regarded horse racing as
the grandest sport of te day,
''It was not illegal at the time these
Indictments were tound," said Mr. Mc
Detmott, "to hold horse races, and
neither was betting within the track In
cloeure. No person can be punished for
making a bet on a race-course, then why
should my clients be punished for slm
p.y maintilnlng the place where betting
Mr. McDermott spoke of the racing in
England, where the highest otllcials
and leaders of the best society attended,
ami said: "Why, it was one ot the
highest ambitions of their prrsent
Prime Minister to win a Derby." In
this State v.e have the ilncst racecourife
ln the world, but the Legislature tins
seen lit to close It." He then aBked the
Court to treat his clients with the most
Prosecutor Wlnfteld did not address
Judge Lippincott announced that he
and hia associates had not had sufficient
time to consider before passing judgment
upon such a grave question. I
He IKed the time for sentence at one
week from Saturday,
A large crowd was present In the
court-room attracted there by the no
toriety of the race-track men.
JudKe Lippincott said the matter was
one that affected the future of Hudson
County as well as other counties In New
Jersey and that the Court would take
all the time It needed to weigh the
eiucstion before passing Judgment. All
the defendants were present, and ex
press the greatest contldence that they
will only be punished by a fine.
