TO TAKE UP BRANDT CASE
WEDNESDAY
New York, Feb. 27.- Because
the district attorney of Clinton
county was not present the for
mal filing of an order setting aside
the conviction of Folke E. Brandt,
the former Schiff valet, and his
admission to bail, which was to
have taken place at noon, was de
ferred until Wednesday.
Mortimer L. Schiff today made
public 10,000-word statement,
declaring that certain newspa
pers had sought to attack his hon
or, and that he was not given a
chance to defend himself before
the grand jury. He charged that
Brandt, through his lawyers,
tried to blackmail him. In the
statement is contained two let
ters which thcvalet is alleged to
have written to Mrs. Schiff.
The millionaire paints himself
as a much-maligned man, and
says he wants full publicity giv
en the matter. He makes no
mention of the "record" which re
sulted in Brandt's heavy sentence
which witnesses have declared
was faked.
Sunshine Stuff.
Cheer up and court a mefry smile,
A grouch is a sad affair;
And the frown that is spread all
over your face
May soon be frozen there.
