SHE IGNORES 1ITS WIFE Pausing 'from time to time to protest against the presence of reporters In the room. Mrs. Ullen Knight Feck, aged confidence woman, told United States Commissioner Alexander Ollchrlst yes terday what she knew about John Grant Lyman, the mlrslng broker who Is wanted by the Federal authorities for using the malls In a scheme to defraud In which lie sold oil stocks on tho Instal ment plan. Mrs. Feck appeared as a witness In the bankruptcy proceedings against Lyman's brokerage establish ment, John II. Putnam t Co. of 68 11 road street, which was closed after the broker left town. It was hard to reconcile the appear ance of the gray haired, motherly little woman on the witness stand with her reputation an a financial adventuress. Her testimony, however, given In a trem ulous tone and with appaient frankness, contained very little Information of use to Itecelver John I.. Lyttle In his search for assets. She said she first met Ly man In Kurope In 191.1 and after a three year acquaintance had come to tho con clusion that ho was the "most mys terious man" she ever knew. While Mrs. I'eck was on tho stand Mrs. John Oram Lyman entered the room, but refused to recognize the wit ness, who also turned her gaxe tn tho I other direction. Nevertheless, Mrs. Peck later In her testimony insisted that she was fond of tho little Kngllsh woman who eloped with Lyman while she was still the wife of a Itrlllsh naval reserve officer. "I was a mother to Mrs. Lyman," said Mrs. I'eck "I haven't a bit of sym pathy for Lyman himself, but I would tike to see him compelled to do the right thing by his wife." Mri. Peek said she had known Peel. under tho aliases of I.orlmer. Stirling. Wills, Hammond, Cotton, Itolierts, Joshua Drown, Putnam and urtlss, "Do you know whore Lyman Is?" she was asked hy Alfred II. Nathan, attor ney for tho receiver. "I wish I did," replied Mrs. Peck with emphasis. At the conclusion of the bearing Mrs. Peck turned over to Receiver Lyttl some letters which she had received from Ly man. She Insisted that she had never received anything of value from him. She added that she was penniless ami had to be supporte-d by her relatives. Louis 11. Thnnet. whom Lyman took from a machine shop and placet! In nom inal eharge of John II. Putnam & Co. at a salary of $.Vi a week, told of how he had lost S50O through his confidence In Lyman's financial stability. He had bought a stickpin and a wateh at Tif fany's for 8oo so that ho might hxk prosperous at the- office, he said, but got only 1300 from Lyman to pay for the Jewelry. In response to a question as to where he had got the monev he Josf Thonet said : "I always have from $L!,oon to 3,onn on hand. I made JSftO on the last world's baseball serler."
