Moss Tells Jurors in Clos
HOT ATTACK ON ROBIN.
Counsel for Ex-City Cham
berlain Declares the State's
Star Witness Is Insane.
A verdict In the case of Charles H.
Hyde, former City Chamberlain, tried
on a charge of bribery In connection
with the allegation that h forced
Joseph J. rtobln, head of the Northern
Bank, to loan IISO.iiOO to the crumbling
Carnegie Trust Company when that In
stitution's capital had been tmpitred.
may be rearhed before midnight.
M ix P. Steuer, aeeiriated In the de
fense with John B. Stanchfleld,
summed up for Hyde this morning, and
Assletsnt District-Attorney Frank Mom
made the final argument for the State,
closing late this afternoon.
It was believed Justice Ooff wouW at
once deliver his charge and that the
case would go lo the Jury by 8 o'clock.
Mr. Moss In his closing argument at
tacked the testimony on "Robin's sanity
introduced by the defense. He insisted
that Itobln was sane, that his story
was Hue, and that Hyde waa guilty of
accepting a hiilie which wit given to
him In the nature of a loan. He at
tempted to rip the alibi set up by Hyde,
declaring it was full of holes.
Mr. Steuer. In summing up, assailed
Robin for his schemes of high finance.
He declared the defense had shown
that Itobin was suffering from euch
mental delusions as to make Ills story
unw'orthy of belief.
SAVS ROBIN MADE THE LOAN TO
He jiolntetl out that Robin wa deeply
Involved In the affair of the Carnegie
Trust Company, and that the failure of
tho Carnegie Trust would have resulted
In the failure of the Northern Bank.
This, Mr. Steuer contended, was the Im
pelling motive for the 1130,000 loan by
the Northern Bank to the Carnegie
Trust, and not ny threat or promise
from Hyde, which threat and promise,
the State alleges, constitute the bribery
charge against the former City Cham
berlain. Mr. Steuer said Hyde was tried for
no transaction other than the $13fl,000
loan, "and," he continued, "there has
been not one whit of evidence here that
I single unlawful dollar era seed the
palm of Hyde."
CARNEGIE HAD CONFIDENCE IN
He went over the relation between
Cummin and Hyde, declaring fhar was
nothing of a questionable nstw In
them. He said Cutnmlns stood so well
In U10 that he was able to borrow 12,
000,000 from Andrew Carnegie.
"No wonder," added Steuer, Oom
mln could get city deposit from Mr
Hyde for the Carnegie Trust Company. "
Steuer then entered into a eltrlollo at
tack upon Robin.
"Robin," he aald. "wrot a latter to
Mr. Hyde commending Cummin. Now
there la no honest man in th world, ac
cording to Robin. Robin has attacked
th honesty of J. Piarpont Morgan and

of Hyde s alibi and reviewed at contld
