He' was found guilty last June of burning the goods on March 31, 1&24. A atsy of sentence was granted at that time to permit an appeal in the Supreme Court. The plea was overruled and sentence was passed this morning. Attorney Herbert Parker, counsel for Haddad. asked for a stay of sentence on the grounds of new evidence recently discovered. Judge Walsh, however, refused this and ordered that the sentence be put into effect at once. Haddad Jumped to his feet and created juite a scene and cried, "God eave the Commonwealth of Massachusetts." He then told the court of his coming to this country to get justice and proclaimed his innocence. He pulled a Bible from his pocket and waved it high in the air, while making his declarations. During his oration relatives numbering about 20 got to their feet and started to cry and shout and surged towards the Judge's bench. Court officers Immediately rushed to the front of the group and ordered them back. A court officer finally quieted Haddad, whereupon he sank to the floor unconscious. He was removed to the East Cambridge Jail, the Jail physician was summoned and he was finally taken to State Prison in an automobile. He had to be carried to the automobile from the East Cambridge Jail and also had to be carried into the prison. He was put into the hands of prison physicians and the necessary papers made out to start his sentence.

Judge Robert Fulton Raymond, who has been presiding, with a Jury, at the socalled Searles-Corcoran case, being heard In the third session of the Suffolk Superior Court, suffered a slight indisposition this forenoon and as a result the trial was adjourned until 10 tomorrow morning. The announcement was made at 11:40 a m by Deputy Sheriff Thomas F. Lally. The announcement was not further explained. It came during a re cess of the court, which was taken at j 10:53 a m." The rtcess was the usual hourly one, taken dally ever since the trial began on Dec 10. It was learned unofficially that Jus- tice Raymond was seized with a dizzy spell some time this morning, and al- though he came to court he felt that I he was unable to make his charge to j the Jury. When court opened Judge Raymond was on the bench and. told Dlst Atty O'Brien to go on with his argument to the jury. The district attorney began his final summing up argument last Friday afternoon and was concluding today. When Mr O'Brien finished his argument, just baforo 10:.r5. the court announced that the usual recess would be taken. Kelly's office until 1920. when Blanche Paul's divorce comes. Miss Barnes said she was going to marry Searles, and Hartnett said if .-he wanted money there was an 'easier way to get it. "Was Hartnett Near Apartment?" "Kelly told Blanche Paul, it has been testified, that ehe would get her divorce and children If she would "do what Hartnett wanted her to do." We find Hartnett cajoling Blanche Paul and cajoling and threatening Eleanor house said SAVED TWO AT HOSPITAL FIRE Howard Whitehouse Helped Women to Safety Volunteer Co-op. Bank Feels Unequal to Task Today When the recess lasted more than 10 minutes persons interested in the case began to get curious. Eventually it became known that Judge Raymond did not feel equal to the task of charging the jury. Whether Judge Raymond was seized with vertigo before coming to court this morning- or suffered an attack during the recess could not be definitely learned. When Dlst Atty O'Brien was sought to learn why the trial came to an abrupt halt It was said that he had gone to the scene of yesterday's Back Bay hospital fire. A short time before It was announced that the trial would go over until tomorrow there was a call In the court corridors for counsel in the case being heard. The several defense attorneys, Dlst Atty O'Brien and his special assistant, Albert Hurwltz, then had a brief conference with Judge Raymond In the Judge's chambers. Barnes. I ask you gentlemen to say whether Hartnett was in the vicinity of the Huntington-av apartment, as was testified here. "It has been testified that Hartnett put his stamp of approval on the apartment on Huntington av. There has been no contradiction of the testimony of 'Jim Wood, the detective, of Arthur .Austin, of Eleanor Barnes, of Blanche Paul that they, these four persons, saw Hartnett in the vicinity of the flat at or about the time of the raid. "We find Harnett and Devlne at Searles' apartment the day after the raid; Hartnett is advising Searles to hire attorney Kelly. "Recall the testimony about Eleanor Barnes asked Hartnett for money, In which Hartnett told her Corcoran had double-crossed everybody. "Gentlemen, you have a right to consider the attitude, conduct and appearance of every defendant in this courtroom from the time you came here until you begin your deliberations. On of the heroes of th Scobey Hospital fire was Howard Whitehouse of 188 Sidney st, Cambridge. Mr White-house was in the vicinity of Audubon road and Beacon st with his wife when the fire started. They reached the scen before any apparatus was there. The sight was an appalling one, Mrs Whitehouse said. At both 906 and 908 Beacon st the Are had reached the top floors. Patients crowded to the windows, screaming, with flames in the rooms benind them.

Women with children In their arms were either at the windows or on the perilous perch afforded by the top of the two bay windows. It seemed that nothing could be done for them. Mr Whitehouse and a youth from the crowd, whose name Mrs Whitehouse did not learn, ran up into the building at No. 910, which is separated only by a wall from number 908. Reaching the top floor, Mr Whitehouse opened the window nearest 908. Only a few feet away, separated only by the fire wall, two wemen were at a window shrieking. Mr Whitehouse leaned out of the window in 910, twisted his body and grasped the window sill of the nearest window of 908. Assisted by the other young man, h was able to swing himself over, and then pull himself into the burning room. The women clung to him as a savior. He took the more hysterical woman, seized her about the waist and leaned out the window to 910, holding her. The other young man reached over, took her hand3, and between them they got her to 910 and safety. She fainted Immediately. The same thing was repeated with the other woman, and she, too, fainted. When this had been accomplished the flames were at Mr Whitehouse's heels. He shouted to the other man, "Ask them if there's anybody else here." The other replied, "They've both fainted." Mr tVhitehouse could find no more, so he made the perilous return trip. Later, when they had brought the women to the street in safety, he learned that Miss Jenkins had been lying in the room, unconscious, and that ehe had perished. Mr Whitehouse was modest today abput his deeds and is badly affected by his experiences. Last night, at his home, he suffered considerably from inhaling smoke and had a terrible headache. This morning, however, he was feeling better and was only a bit unnerved by the trying conditions which he underwent. The well-dressed youth at the Psychopathic Hospital, who appealed to a policeman at Washington and Summer 6ts yesterday, saying that he had forgotten his owt name and everything about himself, is John Mahar of Norwood. He is about 18, a student at Boston University. His father and mother came to the Psychopathic Hospital This morning and identlflel him as their son. They had read of the case In the morning Globe and from the description given realized the youth was their son.

O'Brien this morning called witnesses before the new Suffolk Grand Jury, which will serve for the next six months. The matter considered related to the fire yesterday in the Scobey Hospital, Beacon st, which cost the life of one woman. John H. Mahoney, Building Commissioner of the city of Boston, was one of those who appeared before the district attorney and Grand Jury. On his return to City Hall he said that he intended to have all of the private hospitals of Boston examined; that he would take personal charge, and that it was his inten tion to take steps in the matter of safeguarding. Previously hospitals have been inspected, and where they were found not to conform with the building laws, the owners or lessees of the hospitals were compelled to abandon the buildings. Where dangerous conditions are found, it is the in tention of the commissittaer to close the hospitals, and in case of appeals it will be a matter for the courts to try out. tals before 1919. Those buildings, for the most part, it is be. level, do not conform with the laws of 1919. Buildings of the latter class of building will receive very rlKld inspection. It is the Intention of commissioner Mahoney to close any .-such hospital he finds to be dangoroua and if appeal is taken then the matter will have to be thrashed out in the court whether the Building Department of Boston has the right to shut up a hospital In existence prior to 1919, the construction of the building being euch as to be deemed unfit for hospital purposes by the Commissioner. There are between 30 and 40 private hospitals in Boston. Old Hospitals to Be Inspected There are stringent regulations pertaining to the safety of persons in a hospital, but these regulations pertain to hospitals built since 1919 or buildings altered since that time for the use of hospitals. It is not known how many buildings there are in Boston which were used as hospi- Egress in Case of Fire There is one law which applies even to those old buildings, but It concerns merely the matter of egress. A section from it is aj. follows: "Every building shall have with reference to its height, condition. construction, surroundings, character of occupation, number (if occupants, a reasonable means of agrass in case of fire, satisfactory to the commissioner, except that in all fac-.
