DELAY PLEASES DEFENCE
Freedom on Bail for Former
Ohamberlain if Motion for

Charles H. Hyde has another week to
spend In his Tombs apnrtment. Jus
tice Goff did not Bentence the former
t'ity Chaniberlain yesterday, but re
served decislon on the motion of John
P. Stanehfield. Ilydc'a counsel. for an
arrest of judgment, remandlng the
convicted man to the Tombs for a week
more before pronouncing his fate.
This wlll glve the so-called "John

qulre into condltlons of admlnistration
In the Tombs whlle Hyde languishea In
the "Cummtns rhaek." Pefore re?
mandlng Hyde Justlce Ooff charged the
Krnnd Jury to Inqulre into condltlons
In the Tombs, and yesterday aftcrnoon
that body set to work.
Mr. Ktanchfleld and his Hlent MOflatd
conslderably elated over Justlce Goff's
aerlous entertainment of what Is usu
ally ? perfunctory motion offered t>y
counsel for the defence Just before the
court p.nsses sentence on his cljent.
The lawyer sald that. whlle unusual.
this actlon on the part of Justlce Goff
was not unlque In the modern annals
of the New York bench. If the Justh-e
grants an arrest of Judgment. he cx
plalr.ed, the people mav appeal flrst to
the Appellate Division and then to the
COOfl of Appeals. Hyde being admltfed

No Appeal from Denial.
If. however. Justlce Ooff denies the
motion. the defence cannot appeal U
the hlgher courts agalnst this ?perlfi

Mr. Staiuhfleld to pro< eed as he had

"There wns an Indkatlon of doubt ln
your tone. Did you ever say to any
one In words or In substance that you
had knowledge that would glve this

That ended the queatlonlng of Wright,
who ahorJJy afterward took the witness
stand before the grand Jury to make
the aame denlala and to undergo, also,
an examlnatlon regarding hlB adnvtn

Breker. the reporter responsiblo for the

Mr Wright ln such hot water, preceded
him aa a witness before the grand Jury,
produclng his notebook to prove he cor
rectly quoted the Deputy (Jommlssioner

Breker waa the flrat witness before
the grand Jury. When he emerged
after a Bhort examlnatlon he told his
frlends that last Sunday he had called
up Wright on the telephone and that
Wright had made the atatements at
tributed to him the next mornlng over
the telephone. Breker aald that what
Wright told him aeemed ao important
to him he immedlately spoke to the
niglu rity editor about It and went up
to see Wright in neraon to make doubly
sure he had heard arlght. Wright re
peated to him what he had aald ovtr
the telephone, he sald, and ho took
i-areful notea of the converMation. Tho
notebook he had with him bore him
Wright denled that part of the lnter?

he had evldence whlch l*d him to be

ther that Wllllam P. McLoughlln, a
newspaper friend of hia, had told him
that Breker had been a preaa agent and
that he believed all preaa agents to be
llara. The grand jury, therefore,_eent
for Mr. McLoughlin, who remembered
tho rem.ark he had made to Wright,
but sjild he had made it in an offhand
m-inner and that he kncw of nothlng
whatever to Impttgn the veraclty or re

Navar Studied Tomba Rulea.
Wright occupled the stand before the
grand jury for an hour and a half, and
in that time underwent a searchlng ex

TombH. Questlons were flred at him
from all quarters, according to report,
concernlng the favorltism shown to
Hyde since the latter's incaneration.
A copy of the rtiles governlng the con

was sent for and produced, adding
