Hansen says that he did not represent Brandt when the man pleaded guilty on March 28, 1007, to burglary in the firsTl degree. He happened, he says, to be in the Part I. of General Sessions on other business. "Judge Rosalalcy presided," says the affidavit, "and on this particular 'morning he had sitting with him on the bench Howard Gans, Mr. Schiff's attorney, and on the step leading up to the bench was Mr. Iselin, a partner of Mr. Gans ami also a former Assistant District Attorney." Brandt appeared without counsel, Han sen told the Grand Jury. Judge Kosalsky after calling Brandt book from the prisoner's pen asked Hansen to inquire if the prisoner understood .the proceed ings. Hansen complied and Brandt told him "Yes." Hansen said he acted not as cnilnxel, Wit as interpreter, and that it wasn't until April 4, the day Brandt was sentenced, that he appeared as counsel. Brandt had sent him a letter from the Tombs. There'Hrandt told him, Hansen testified, that it was by Onus's .advice that trie plea of not guilty had been with drawn and a plea of guilty made.

Overhauled Quickly on Great South Hay and Taken Aboard. FUGITIVES HAD NO CHANCE. Extra Scooter Commandeered When FIpcIiir Men Separated and Took Different Ways. Patchoquk. It. I Feb. I.-Capt. Edward Ryder, who has a summer hotel over on Water Island, causht a hnrcLir Inst Saturday after chasing him half way across Ureat South Hay in a scooter. Tho burglar's brother, who had helped lilm loot Capt. Ryder's hotel, was caught by a neighbor in another scooter. Jus tice pf the Peace L. B, Oreen to-day sen tenced the elder. Otto Phoeland, Jr., to b!x months In the county jail and hu brother Oeorge to three months. On Saturday afternoon Capt. Ryder took George Randall, construction In spector in the life saving service, across to the Hlue Point station, whero Randall wanted to look, over the ground for a new station. They went in Capt. Ryder's scooter. A- Bcooter Is an amphibious sort of sailing skiff with an Iron shod keel which acta aa a big skate when th fboat changes from Water to ice travel The Patchoguent use them in the winter in stead or automobiles. With a good breeze on smooth ice a soooter will travel like a be cylinder racer on Florida sand. After leaving Randall at the life saving station Capt. Ryder went over to Water Island to see 'what damage the big blow of Wednesday had done to his hotel, the Water House. (The Water House, which has abdut fifty roonw.l has been closed since October. Capt. Ryder found that the lock of the front door had been forced nnd that the door was swinging In the breeze. He tiptoed off the porch and went around to the barn. When he came back he had a pitchfork. As silently as he could in his boots he made his way upstairs, where he thought heiieurd some one moving about Kery room that he passed was in disorder. Mattresses were rlpjxxl aud lying on the floor, curtains were hanging in shreds, beds were wrecked and crockery was smashed. . Whilo he was making a tour qf tlie mfconil floor lie heard steps coming down the rear stairs.. He ran back to the front door and looked' around Uie'co'rrier'of the porch in time to see two young fellows running across the Ice of Oreat South Bay toward Patchugue. live miles away. Capt. Ryder It ured that that pace wouldn't last five miles. He went back to the life savin station, manned his scooter with Frank Roth, cap tain of the crew, and Albert Latham and started out. By that time' the two fugitives had dwindled Into pretty small specks on the ice field. As the breeze caught the sails of the scooter, however, they began to grow larger very rapidly. hen the pair ahead lound they were pursued they separated. Cant. Ryder held the scooter for the man making the' most direct course to the shore. As tiiey drew up on him he began to dodge aud circle, but the scooter has an advantage on ice. It wilt answer the slightest touch at the helm, can whirl on its heel without losing momentum and will run almoct into the eye of the wind. Within ten minutes after they set out from the life saving station the three men had overhauled Otto Phoeland, Jr. They tied him securely and looked about for the second man. He was a good mile and a half away und, with four aboard, the little scooter was some what sluggish. Capt. Ryder saw another scooter and made for her. Aboard the Second was Frank Avery of Blue Point. When Cupt. Ryder explained that there was a chance to chase a burglar in a scooter Avery accepted joyfully. He crowded on all sail after the speok out on the Ice and sooii had him safe aboard. The second prisoner was George Phoe land, Otto's brother. He is 18 years old. Otto is 20. The two prisoners were brought to Patchogue aud locked up, Then, although it was pretty well along toward evening, Capt. Ryder went back to his hotel. He found that almost every thing which would command any money at second hand had been taken all of the tableware' and table linen, bed clothes and kntck-knackB. Thero were several big bun dles of rugs rolled up ready to bo taken away, A lot of bathing suits worth 1125 which Capt. Ryder bought at tho end of lost season were also missine. Altogether he figured that his loss was easily $Soo. it was aner mianignt wnen,ne mushed his inventory, but he got out his faithful scooter and started right baok to Patch ogue. He liammered at the door of, Justice of the Peace Oreen und got a search war rant from that official when he came down in night cap and ulster. Then lie went to the Phoeland house in IJayport with Deputy Sheriff Frank Norton. They found a good deal of the stuff that had been stolen there, including practically .all of the tableware. It filled the buggy uncomfortably full when they started for home. They learned that the Phoeland boys had taken the loot across the Ice In a wheel barrow and liad mode four trips. After a talk with the boys Norton arrested Bert Thompson, ,21 years old, but when the three were arraigned before Justice of the Peace Oreen to-day all agreed that ThompHon had advised against the rob bery und had been ovorpereuaded to Join in it. Ho was discharged at the request of Capt. Ryder. The captain's plea for clemency also had a good deal to do with the light Hontonco the Phoeland boys got. It was discovered to-day that three bungalows of the R. W. Caldwell Develop ment Company, which are near the Water House, were also entered while the frozen highway across Great South Day tempted looters. It is not known how much was taken from them.

In two cases Involving Southern Pacific land grants the Supreme Court to-day , in an opinion by Justice Holmes, upheld the railroad in one cast) and the Government in the other. The Government started the suits in California to cancel the patents held by the Southern Pacific The la ids were first granted to the Atlantio and Pacific rail road, which forfeited tha grunt. The Southern Pacific then selected the lands under an l.idomnlty grant. The court held that the title or the Southern Puclflo rested on whether it took under a main line jrant or a branch lino grant. So much of tho lauds as fell within the main lino grant were awarded to the Southern Pacific. The grant within the "branch line were decided in favor of t ho Government. 2,600 AFTER THREE PLACES.
