The arrest of Slmora Moschini. for

refused to annul his marriage to the
American woman and condemning him
to pay her $20() u month alimony Sig
nor Moschini has also started criminal
proceedings against hit wife, charging
her with ndultery and also with having
married him under a false name and,
forging her birth certificate. Signor

Signora Moschini has sued her husband
tor slander and defamation of character.
Moschini has qImi sued a local newspaper
for stating that he introduced his wife at
court and presented her to the Pope.
The husband says that as a Radical und
anti-clericnl he has nothing to do with
either King or Pope. Signora Moschini
has nIo determined to make some ex
posures of her husband's breach of party
etiquette, which if proved will cause him
to lose his seat in Parliament.
In another suit Signofa Moschini will
stir up another scandal. She will atl
tempt to prove that Lieut. Rellegrad, in
whose room eho wa arrested, committed
perjury when he was arrested. The
lieutenant declared that when h took
Signora Moschini into his bouse he was
unaware that she was a married woman.
He declared that he met her at ahotel
und invitod her to his. rooms. This ex
planation under the law secured his re
lease. Signora Mcschlni says she is de
termined, to prove at the coming trial
that the lieutenant knew very well who
she was, as ho was a friend of Deputy
Moschinl'e, and under the clrcumstancvs
his conduct was unbecoming an officer
nnd a gentleman and that he, therefore,
should be cashiered from the navy.

at that weekly rntc, but that was ns far
as ho could go.
Frank L. Grant, who was pre.side.nt of

but Justice Goff would not allow this.

of Hyde and his counsel when he said
"There h no evidence to show that

Mr. Grant spent most of his time
listening. The first banker was Richard
W. Jones, Jr.. vioo-presldont of the
National Reserve Bank in 101 o. Mr. Jones
now. lives at Monroe, Piko county, this
Briefly he said that his bank was a city
depositary; that ho knew Wiliiam J.
Cummins and had met htm from time to
time in those days. He did not. remem
ber a conversation ho had with him in
May about city deposits, not. exactly.
That brought on tho big legal Btorra of
the dav. Mr. Stouor wnnted to know
what Mr. Clark meant by the question.
Mr. Clark replied that the time had como
in the case for the prosecution to establish
that the experience of Rohin was only
one of many; that practically many banks
went through the same thing, not with
the City Chamberlain himself .hut with
Cummins as Hyde's intimate friend and
Mr. Stonchfleld then made un argument
of some length asserting that thero was
absolutely nothing to connect Hvde with
anything Cummins might do; Hydo was
not present at any conversation, there
wan nothing to show that ho know of it
and it could not possibly bind him.
Admits No Direct Proof.
Mr. Clark in his turn admitted that
whllo it might not bo possible to show
that Hyde know by direct evidence, thero
was circumstantial evidence to show
that he did. As he set it forth Cum
mins would go to a bank and ask for a
loan, promising more city deposits; tho
loan would bo made and on tho day it
was done the city deposit would arrive
and would romain there. ' In one or two
cnes it is there yet.
Both sides. quoted cases, and one side
declared that tho other side's cases did
not apply here, but the Justice finally
told Mr. Clark to go ahead and Mr. Jones
finally testltled that in May. 1010. he had
received an application for a loan from
William J. Cummins personally and on
behalf of a business enterprise. The
questions thereafter wero auhject to
objection and argument until Mr. Clark
asked by direction:
"What was said by Cummins to you
about the loan?"
"We had a talk." snid the witness, "and
Mr. Cummins said that he was thinking
of sending tho business of out of town
national banks which tho Carnetrie Trust
could not handle to us. We discussed
"Well." was the answer, "he told me he
felt he could influence the sending to us
of more city deposits."
He was not sure that Mr. Hvde's namn
was mentioned; Just City Chamberlain
or the office.
Grand Jurr Minute Itead.
That did not suit the proseoutor and hp
produced the Grand Jury minutes. He
started to read and was stopped. Then ho
handed them over to tho witness to
"refresh his memory." The witness read
and looked up smilingly.
"Didn't you say in the Grand Jury
room that Cummins told you that city
deposits would bo sent without any in
fluence?" The witness did not remember. He
admitted that ho did not remember now
as much as he remembered eighteen

He acknowledged also that on Septem
ber 20, the day before, his bank had ro
oeived a city deposit of $100,000. Ho had
talked with Cummins also before the loan
was made. Mr. Appleton was perfectly
willing to tell nil about it. Mr. Cummins
had asked him if the Fourteenth Street
Bank carried city deposits and he had
answered that it did to a considerable
extent. That wns nbout all. nnd thero
was so little nourishment In. the whole
testimony that tho Justice readily agreed
to strike It. out when Mr. fiteuer asked
him to do It.

Call Cnmmlna Accomplice.
Ho said that in August, 1910, ho had
conversed with the busv Mr. Cummins,
who, by the way, wns referred to as tho
"Accomplice Cummins" so often by Mr.
Clark that it cot on Mr Steuer's nerves
and he asked the court to stop it ns there
was nothing to show that Mr. Cummins
wns anything like that Tho court de
clined. Mr. Daur said that tho burden of the
conversation- was about n loan. Ho had
two talks, one down town and the other
ut the Holland House, nnd nr. first he was
certain thero was nothing said about
city deposits. It was seen that the loans
made on .September n were $30,000 to Moore
nnd $20,000' to Relchmunn. Tho loans
were-secured by collateral nnd by tho
guarantees of tho group"
Mr. Clark produced his grand jury
minutes nnd handed them to the witness
as a refresher It was successful. Mr.
Baur then, remembered that thero was
fromothlng about city deposits.
There were some questions them among;
were: "Are you n city depositary?" to
which there was un affirmative answer.
"How much do you corn-?" to which tho
answer waa "$",ooo," and then the further
quoted statement of Cummins: "I nm
very well acquainted in tho department
und I think I can get you somo more."
II. would have endvd there if Mr. Steuer
in his cross-exiiinlnotion hud not asked
the steps taken to make tho loan. Mr.
Baur talked for five minutes in a level
voloe, telling how it went from com
mittee to committee and hack again;
how Mr. Hammerllg. a director, had
suggeHted it; how another director had
objected; how there was un argument,
und then finally how the loan had been
spproved. Thero was not a won! about
city deponits in his narration, Mr. TJInrk
wuh at him when ho had HnlAhed.
"Do you mean to say there was nothing
t-ald about city deposits ut that meet
ing?" Tho witness pondered.
"Oh, yes, there was somothing said,
but after it was ull over," he replied.
"Now look hero, Mr, Baur," said tho
Assistant District Attorney, "wasn't the
condition utmn which that . loan was
approved tht promise that there should
bo n deposit of $50,000?"
Mr. Buur said "Yes."
"Was that deposit made?" "Yes."
"By whom?'' "Tho city," waa the
"Did anybody else make

a $50,000 de-
"Didn't Cummins tell you that tho
$50,000 deposit of tho city should be carried
as an offset to the loan?" The .witness
hesitated and then answered: "Yes."
Joseph J. Bach, who wns vice-president
of the Public Bank, returned the in
evitable answer that ho had a conversa

to a loan for himself and ids three aro

"Was thero anything suij nbout citv

replied that there were several ques
tions. Cummins had asked hint If hi
hank was n State and citv depository,
to had replied that it had State funds
Cummins had mggested that it wouH

Hwered thnt he wat not bothering much
nbout. that, us ho hud written once about
tho matter and had received no answer
-'"To whom did you write?" wns thn
question of the financier.
"To the Comptroller," Bach replied.
Wrote to Wrong Man,
Mr, Cummins told him that ho had mad
a sad mistake; ho should have written to
thn Chamberlain. Mr. Back admitted
that ho wrote t ho tuimo day and on Novem
ber 10 the bank received $25,000. ali.of
which testimony gavo tho defence some
opportunity to smi.'e.
After Deputy Comptroller Fisher had
been prevented from saying anything
about what wns clone when Mr. Hyde was
in Kurone John Alvin Young, president
of tho Windsor Trust Company in thofe
days was called. He had conversed with
Mr. Cummins in September, 1910. and Mr.
Cummins wnnted to borrow a little, trcssy.
His bank hod lent $37,500 for sixty days
to the Piatt Iron Works on September 14
and also $37,500 for ninety days to the
same concern. When tho sixty day note
becamo due on November 14 it had been
renewed with n demand note and on the
same day $50,000 had come from the city.
This latter note had also been guaranteed
by the Cummins group.
Mr. Young did not, remember whether
there had been anything said about city
deposits in his talk with Mr. Cummins..
Ho said ns a matter of fact his hank waa
always after more city money and always
was applying for It. Mr. Clark then got
out his useful Grand Jury minutes, and.
refreshed by theso Mr. Young recalled
that Cummins had asked him how much
of a city deposit they were carrying and
ho had answered $200,000 or tfiereobout.
Mr. Cummins had then Bald that he'
thought he would be able to run It up to
half a million. There waa nothing un-. 1
usual nbout that $50,000 deposit, Mr. ,
Young admitted on cross-examination.
His bank had received $100,000 from Mr. I
Hyde In March of that year. $100,000 in
May, $100,000 in July, and Cummins had
nothing whatever to do with that. f

Orion W. Cheney , former Superin

stand just at adjournment, but ho was .
not asked to testify. It was said by Mr. .
Clark that ho would have about five
more witnesses to call for the prosecution.
According to thu District Attorney ha .
has now proved two of the threo stops '
of his cuss. Ho has proved thn threats '
and force on Robin and the Northern
Rank nnd the system. There remains
but one step, which appears the hardest ,
one of all. that is to show how Hydo
benefited by any of these transactions.
