Extends Its Investigation to All
Institutions Under the
Correction Department.
NEW COMPLAINTS MADE
Inquiry May Not Be Finished
Before Next Friday Many
Witnesses To-Pav.
The Special Grand fttrf Instructed
last Wednesday to examine 'Into the
management of the Tombs prison did
not tile a presentment with Justice Goff
to-day concerning the matter of fav
oritism alleged to have been shown to
Charles H. Hyde, the convicted cx-Clty
Chamber! iln. Instead, the plans of the
investlga'ors were suddenly shifted and
the Investigation Us now to extend to
all penal Institutions under the super
vision of the Department of Correction.
In effect, the Grand Jury Is going to
Investigate the Department of Correc
tion, which has charge of the Tombs,
all the police court prisons, the work
house and the penitentiary. It Is eg
pected that this Investigation will take
until next Friday.
Since the Investigation of the Tombs
began the District-Attorney has received
a number of letters O0mplalnln about
other Inn ltutioris. Although these let
tors nre from persons who are or have
been prlsomrs. they were considered
worthy of notice and the facts alleged
In them to tie true are to be Ini

The Qrand Jury also heard Martin C
Wright, the son of Commissioner
Wright, and John Martin, secretary to
Secretary of State Laxanaky, both of
whom say they were present at an in
ter! lew given by Mr. R right to a
reporter a week ago leal Sunday. These
two witnesses announced that tney
were prepared to swear that Mr Wright
did not tell the reporter he knew of

Hyde or get him a new trial,
Inasmuch as no ha rites of a criminal
nature have been male die Grand Jury

ment embodying Ita obaorvnRonf and

presentment wMl probably be sent to
Mayor Gaynor by Justice fluff.
GRAND JURY ACTED ONLY ON
GOFF'S INSTRUCTIONS.
The Grand Jury, under the Instruc
tions of Justice Goff, has touched upon
matters in Its investigation deal.ng only
with discipline In tho city prison and
enforcement of rules promulgated by the
Commissioner of Correction Justice
Guff, in his instructions, called particu
lar attention to the law which states
that a defendant upon conviction o! a
criminal offense shall be kept in "close
confinement" until sentenced.
It Is said that he Grand Jury does not
regard the segregation of Charles H.
Hyde In a building separate from the
cell houses of the Tombs and equipped
with a bath and a apeclal cot and other
conveniences as "close confinement."
The Grand Jury hss learned, too, that
Hyde has teen allowed to see visitors
outside of prescribed hours and on
days whsu other prisoners are not al
lowed to see callers.
When the Grind Jury visited Hyde's
quarters on Friday, It bticumu known
to-day, Commissioner of UharltlOg
