Ver non Brlggs, who has already observed the condemned rasa, report that niche son Is Insane, Qov. Foss, under the law, will mbmlt tho petition of Riche son'a attorneys for a commutation ot sentence to the executive council. In no other way, according to the authori ties at the State house, can Rtchsson's life be saved. It was stated that even If commuta tion was granted on the ground of In sanity at the present time Rlcheson's mental recovery subsequently would cause his execution provided it were shown that he was not Insane at the time tho murder was committed. Itlcheaon Is tho first prisoner con demned to death under the law which provides for electrocution who has not been tent to the death house at, the Stato prison ten days before the time set tor the execution. Tho stay Is due to Sheriff John Qulnn, the Suffolk County Jailer, who decided to hold Rloheson In the Jail until some conclusion as to the disposition ot the case Is reached at the State house. The former minister knelt before Sheriff' Qulnn last night and Implored him not to send him to the State prison and to the death house at the present time. Tho tall Virginian who stood be fore the court four months ago and calmly acknowledged the murder of Miss Wnncll begged tho Sheriff to be allowed to remain In the Jail quarters a few days longer, fllinriff Qulnn said that Rlcheson wept when he was told that he would not have to go to the Btat" prison this wk.

Ills counsel, Mlrabeuu I.. Towns, and tho Interests that are fur- ulshlng the money for Brandt's dufensa have not decided what to do. Half a dozen different lines have been considered and discarded. In thd present .aspect of the case Brandt is back In prison to stick out his thirty year term unless th Governor Inter feres. While theie la a dispute among law yera over the right of Brandt's counsel to appeal from the decision of the Ap pellate Division, It Is quite probable that hu will do so, and' many lawyers bdlovn audi an appeal will be sua tnlned owing to the fact that Brandt's oase comes up In habeas corpus action, It Is contended that Mr. Towns has the right to carry the controversy clear to tho United States Supreme Court de- splto the ifnot that Brandt Is an alien. There has been some talk of Mr. Towns awoarlng out a now writ of habeas corpus on the ground that Judge Rosulsky, who sentenced Brandt, hau since reopened the case, declaring hl.1 own action Irrogular. Such a writ would subject tha aotton of Judge Rn- aalsky to review by the Appellate Divi sion. APPELLATE DIVISION JUDGED SENTENCE LEGAL. But the Appellate Division In Its de cision handed down yesterday unani mously agreed that Judge Rosalsky legally sentenced Brandt. No matter what Judge Hosalsky's opinion might ho about his own action, It Is not likely that the Appellate Division would re verse Its own Judgment on tha legality of Brandt'H conviction and sentence should the matter come before thnt tribunal on another habeas corpus writ. Mr. Towns Is of the opinion that If he serves notice of an appeal It will serve as a stay and keep Brandt from rolng back to Dannemora Prison. Warden Fallon of the Tombs will dollver Brandt to Warden Kaiser of Dannemora any time the warden presents the proper papers. Kvery effort will be made to keep Brandt 111 New York until his case la finally disposed of, but It Is not likely he will bo admitted to bat) again. The persons responsible for the 17,(00 ball bonds whleh gave him his liberty wbllo the appeal was pending were quite fererlsh with anxiety to surrendor him yesterday afternoon and scarcely two hours had elapsed from the lime th Appellate Division decision was handed down until Brandt was In cell No, I, first tier, Tombe Prison, The probability that Oov.
