of his experience.
(Urs. Caroline Phillips, who lives at
No. 6S Hoyt avenue, Astoria, makes It
J s riracrtre each morning to search the
shore of the rlvor only a few hundred
feet away from her bouse for drift
wood, and because of the pinch of pov
erty whloh dictates this custom on the
woman's part Scbmuck owes his life
to her. For this morning, dsaplts the
cold and the lowering storm clouds, the
woman left her home about IX) o'clock
end walked along the Astoria shore
near tha foot of Hoyt avanua in her
usual search for wood.
She saw what she at first took t be
a loir " nice big log," as the aleansr
of driftwood put It lodged among, ths
rocka soms twenty-five feet out from
the river bank. As aha was trying to
devise some plan for tha log's recovery
ahe heard a shivering moan and she
saw a movement of the black streak In
the water.
WOMAN WADES IN AND DRAGS
POLICEMAN OUT.
Without an Instant's hesitation the
woman waded out into the la walji
to her waist and came to a man wn
was floating, anchored to the tip of a
rock hy the grip of his two blue handv
Though the current was switt and the
weight of the half drowned man was
dragging the gatherer of driftwood

bis ilefenve.
lJ:irlng the morning John V: Smith,
Hyde's socretary When the dafondant
was City r-hambf-rlaln, bad 'lieen i-alld
as a witness In tho effort by the Stats
to show that Hyde has obtaine-1 a per
sonal profit through the loan which
Kohln had teat In sd his bank had been
fotvs.l to make to tha tottering Trust
Cnitry.
smit'n teetlfled tint be bad borrowed
110,000 from the Carnegie Trust Company
aftei the date on which Hyde was
charge d with forcing the Northern
Hiuni to nuke the loan to the Carnegie
Trust. The loan wjs made to rbnltli on
hie own note, endorsed by Hyde. The
money was deposited to his own ac
count and then paid over to Hyda on
Smith's check. The note drew six per
cent. Interest and was paid before It
was due by a note signed by Charles,
P. Norcross.
SMITH'S STORY OF THE SECOND
CARNEGIE LOAN.
Smith testified to another loan of
N.0OO from the Carnegie Trust. All but
ISO0 of this bad been drawn out at the
time of tba failure of the Carnegie
Truat
Thess transactions, It was declared
by tha prosecutor, proved that the loans
ware made after Hyde had favored the
Carnegie Traat and that Hvde thus
obtained a personal profit by depositing
city funds In concerns that lent money
to the then tottering Carnegie Truat
Company.
Books of the Carnegie Trust Company
ahowsd that Hyde bad guaranteed the
Smith note and that tlrera was no se
cret about it. These books alao showed
that Hyda had guaranteed the dsbts
of Norcross, and that 117,070 of such
debts bad been paid. Smith was not
cross-axatnlned by the defense and ths
State rested its case.
When Mr Stanchflsld renewed ha
motion to dismiss ths Indictment against
Hyde on the (rrounds of Insumolsnoy of
charges, he also asked that all of
Smith's evidence be stricken out on the
ground that It was lncompstent snd
hearsay He requested that ths testi
mony of all wttnessea who had told
of conversstlons to wmich Hyde himself
was not a party be ruled out of the
record aa hearsay testlmonyt
"The charges," Mr. Stanohfleld said,
"do not constltuts a crlma. Wa now
ask Your Honor to advlss the jury to
acquit the defendant upon tha ground
that the evidence In tho case does not
prove a i rlnie Wa also ask Your Honor
to advise the lury to acquit the defend
ant upon the ground that there Is no
proof that the loan to the Carnegie
Trust Company by the Northern Bank
was to the personal advantage or bene
llt of Hyde
"Next we ask Your Honor to advlee
the Jury to acquit upon the ground that
the evidence dlsclosea that the witness
Joseph s Kobln was an accompll'-s In
any offense alleged to have been com
mitted and that bis svldenee has not
been corroborated In a manner tending
to connect the defendant with the eom-ii'.li-jiion
of the alleged crime, Robin has
been convicted of a felony and there
fore his evidence requires corrobora
tion." Mr Htnnchfleld admitted the Smith
hnn from the Carnegie Trust Company
Wag for Hyde, declaring Hyde indorsed
the note in the usual manner and paid
