The Countess Ieary's Address
Also in Prisoner's Red
Leather Memorandum.
E. K. Wadrook. Mrs. Grsce De Mltte
and Alexander Kaiser, wealthy residents
of Tenafly, N. J., were notified by the
Jersey City police early to-day that a
burglar had been in their housea during
the night and had stolen large quanti
ties of clothing. It was the first any of
them had heard of it, the news coming
before they hail risen for the day.
The Countess Annie Learv and John
D. Rockefeller may also take notice
that the New Jersey robber had their
addresses In his little red leather note
book with directions as to the quleteol
and neatest way of entering their
homes.
The dlsoovery of last night's robber;
was made by Detective Hoffman and
Policeman I.enlhan of Jersey City waco
they arrested Michael Ryan, who stops
t Mills Hotel So. 1 of this city, in -the
Krle Terminal. He had JUSt arrived on
the only early morning train from trie i
Palisade towns. They charged him witn I
having robbed the home of James A.
Brady, Batten agent of Swift & Co.,
at Ilighwood, N. J., on Nov. 22.
Quantities of clothing had been carried
an'ay from the Brady house and clothing
and silverware bad been neglected. Mr.
Brady asked the Jeraey City police for
a detective and Hoffman made an In
vestigation. Mr. Brady waa convinced
that the rlbber, with his big bundle
must have been a conspicuous figure on
the only late night train. Conductor
Nicholas Yonngerman remembered the
stranger with the big packages. He re
membered other robberies, followed by
the appearance of the heavily burdened
stranger on his strain. Policeman Den
ihan was set to watch the arriving
train every morning.
When the train arrived to-day, Yonng
erman ran ahead of the engine, found
Denlhnn and pointed out Ryan. The
clothing taken from the Tenafly houses
was found In his packages. Mr. Wad
rook reported over the telephone after
making an investigation that his house
had been ransacked; the thelf had
cracked some of the bottles of rare, old
wine In the cellar but had not cared
for the contents ar.d had also discarded
boxes of Brazilian cigarettes, taking a
box of a hundred of a very cheap brand
Mr. Wadrook keeps In stock for an
eccentric friend.

names of all the people who have been
robbed along the Palisades recently and

Alleged Did to Win Soubrerte
From Rivals Ridiculous,

Abraham L. Krlanger. on the witness
stand In the Supreme Court, to-day ad
mitted for the first time that he had
"handed" money to F.dlth St. Clair, a
mus'ral comedy actress, at various
times. Miss St. Clair Is suing to re
cover $22,250 from Klaw & Erlanger r.n
a contract that she alleges supplanted
a verbal contract ehe made with Er
langer whereby she waa to receive at
least 'ti s week for life from the big
theatrical firm.
Mr. Krlanger was being examined by
his attorney, William Tra vers Jerome, la
rebuttal when he made the statement.
"Handed" was the word that went Into
the record, and was suggested by Jus
tice Pendleton himself. Mr. Jerome
used the word "give" and Edmund L.
Mooney, eotlsYSol for the plaintiff, In
sisted that the witness "peld" the cash
aa an obligation. Then It wss the
Court Interposed: "Well, aay 'handed'
her money."
Mr. Krlanger had denied paying the
plam'lff I7ii a week during rehearsals and
"hen she was not playing. Attorney
Jerome then asked:
"Did you ever give her any money?"
"Yes, I msde her presents of money
at various times."
On Mr. Mooney'a objection only "yes"
was allowed on the record. Then fol
lowing the Court's suggestion Mr. Jer
ome continued:
NEVER "HANDED" MORE THAN
$200 IN YEAR.
"How often did you hand or cause to
be handed money to Miss St. Clair?"
"Well, I gave her money at Christmas
time, between 1900 and 1!M)S."
''Did the sum given ech year amount
to the salary she would have received
had ehe been working?"
"No, In the five years 1 don't believe
It amounted to more than $1,000." The
wltneas added: "In Justice to Mlsa St.
Clslr, I will say that she never de
manded a cent from me." This waa
stricken out.
"What was the greatest sum you ever
handed her In one year?" was the next
question.
"Not more than $300," replied Er
langer. Then the wltneaa msde a general de
nial of the statements made on the
stand by Max li Steuer yesterday. Mr
8teuer, who was Miss St. Clair's per-
I sonal attorney, narrated a conversation
I that he said took place between him and
Krlanger prior to the signing of the
$2,,000 agreement, which the defense ad
j mlts, but contends was obtained under
i duress.
I Mr. Urlanger denied that hehudrwom

RUSE HELPED HER OUT
When He Said "Yes" to "Is

He Was a Marauder.
Mrs. Mary Brady, the golden-haired,
fluffy little wife of Patrolman James T.
Brady of the Old Slip station, appeared
In the West Hide Court to-day as com
plainant against a burglar wtio n sne
captured herself yesterday afternoon.
The policeman's wife la only twenty
years old. and the wonder of the court
was that ehe ever could hold and cause
the arrest of the big hulking man, who
gave his name as George Martin. All
the more wonderful waa It to the court
attendanta when the police ashed that
Martin be held over until Saturday, be
came the records aay he has served two
years In Sing Sing for burglary.
A rapping at Mrs. Brady's door, on
the second floor of No. 321 West Korty
eecond street, yesterday afternoon,
brought her to the door,
"I didn't ask who M was." ehe said
to-day, "because Im, my husband, al

"Jim says It Is better to say, 'Is that
you, Philip, or Clarence or some name
you don't know, and If the person says
It Is Philip, then you'll know lie's a

"So I said, 'Is that you, Philip?' and
the man said Yea' and then I wouldn't
open the door. The man outside began
heaving at the door, and I saw he would
break It If I didn't open. So 1 opened
It and grabbed up my baby and went
out on the Are escape. I shouted fur
help, and the man ran from my place
and went upstairs, where he hid. But
I saw him going downstairs and I re
membered what Jim said about holding
a prisoner and telephoning for the po
lice at Spring 3100. Down In the hallway
I wasn't frightened, so I chased after
the man and caught hold .if him and
we struggled, but I held tulm until the

HYDE WAITS IN THE TOMBS
TOR VISIT Of GRAND JORY
Investigators Get Copy of Prison Rule Requir
ing That All Persons, Rich and Poor,
Receive the Same Treatment.
Although the Special Grand Jury In
vestigating the Tombs had arranged to
VlOlt the institution lo-duy and Inspect
the tuurters of Charles II. Hyde the
programme was abandoned late this
afternoon The Inspection will probably
5m made to-morrow, when the (Irnnd
Jury will reconvene to hoar imire evi
dence. Ilie (Irand Jury has been put In
possession of a rule promulgated by
Commissioner of Gorrectlons Whitney
ehortly after he took office. Thla rule,
whtoh applies particularly to the Hyde
matter. In the Judgment of the District
Attorney, reads aa follows:
"All parsons, lion or poor, mas
receive the same treatment from
employees of thla Department.
WHITMAN BAYS THE RULE WAS
VIOLATED.
Thle rule Is held by the District
Attorney to hsve been violated In the
i aso of Hyde. The Urand Jury will en
den vor to find If Commissioner Wnltnoy
and Deputy Commissioner Wright ever
put any prlsonere In the Wsrden'i rot
tggo except Hyde and William J. Cum
mins, tha convicted Carnegie Trust
Company executive.
While Hyde's failure to get out on ball
by Inst night was a disappointment to
him, his lawyers profess to feel greatly
encouraged by Justloe Uoff'e action.
Briefs are being prepared on the mo
tion to arrest Judgment, and will be
submitted the later part of this week.
District-Attorney Whitman will rile a
reply.
Opinions about the Criminal Courts
Building differed to-day s to Justice
Uoff'i motive in deferring ecntence.
Some saw In It only a way of keeping
Hyde In the Tombs until the lirawid
Jury has had a chance to thoroughly
Investigate conditions there, and others
professed to think lh Jmtlce bad boen

charge upon which Hyde waa convicted
does not constitute an crime known to

No one In the 1 Ustrlct-Attorney's office
