In roforenco to tho two attachments granted on Monday by Justice Pratt of tho Bupromo Court, Brooklyn, against Goorgo H. dicker ing. Maston A Nichols, attorneys for Mr. Chlckorlng. have mado a statement which adds to a cloar undorstandlns of tho mattor. Ono attachment was for $30,000. In favor ot tho widow of Charlos F. Chlckorlng, lately Presldont ot tho Chlckorlng Piano Company, and tho othor In favor ot Edward F. Colo for attorney's foe. Maston & Nichols say that those attachments in no way offoct the standing of tho oompany. which was rocontly reorganized, and that they do not effect tho personal crodlt of Mr. Chlck orlng. They woro granted beoauso Mr. Chlckorlng Is not a resldontof this Btato. The attachment for $30,000 was to covor n sum allesod to be, duo under a oontract mado last July, Bays Mr. Masten: . ,, ' By the forms of this contract Mrs. Chlckor lng sold horinterost personallyand ns lecatoo oflicr husband, in the old Chlckorlnc busi ness, and Mr. George If.

It was un expectedly discovered that at tho time of his death Mr. Charlos F.

Chlckorlng until his death last spring, could only hare boon dis covered by an oxpert examination, and. as they wero entirely unknown to Mr. Goorgo H.

''Although Mr. Chlckorlng hopod thathls and Mrs. Chlckering's respective claims could bo adjustedamlcably.hu declines to pay a claim against Which ho has legal nnd cquitablo de fences and counterclaims. As tho action has been brought tho rights of tho parttoa will now havo to bo determined by tho courts. Tho spirit in which the action is brought Is mani fested by tho obtaining of nn attachment which was entirely unnecessary, as Mr. Chlck orlng is abundantly ablo to roupond to any judgment and as the claim Is abundantly se cured by collators! in tho hands of a trustoo.
