Further delay in the criminal trial of the Indicted Chicago packers this time until next Monday- was granted counsel for the defendants ate today by Judge George A. Carpenter In tho United States district court. As result tlio fight to suvo the packers from facing a Jury probably will shift from Chicago, to Washington, where ef forts will be mude to obtain a stay order from a Justice of the United States su preme court. Judge Carpenter said that unless he had received such a stay order by Mon day he would order the packers to trial without further argument. Counsel for the packers effected the delay granted by Judge Carpenter by first appearing before Judge C. C. Kohl saut In the United Jtates circuit court, where the entering of an order quashing the packers' habeas corpus writ had been marking time since Saturday. When delay was granted Saturday by Judge Kohlsaat It was agreed that formal enter ing of this order should take place on Wednesday. The defendants' lawyers caused some surprise by appearing in Judge Kohl saat's court at noon In company with counsel for the government and asking for the Immediate entry of the order. At the Fame time the order granting an appeal from Judge Kohlaaat's decision, also handed down last Saturday, formally was entered.

Miller informed Judge Carpenter of the proceedings before Judge Kohlsaat, detailing each step from the time of application for the writ of habeas corpus, which was Issued and then quashed. "Legally,". Mr. Miller suld. "our appeal from Judae. .Kohlsaat's rullnor Ih now PcHBIngpTn" the" federiri supreme court,' and counsel for appellants conceives that this court ought not to proceed with their trial on the Indictments while the appeal Is in the supreme court, or at- least not until that court shall have had an oppor tunity of passing finally on the ques tions Involved there in tenting the valid ity of the criminal provisions of the Sher man anti-trust law. Operates as May. "Tour honor ought to stay your hand until that court has determined these questions. It Is our contention that the pendency of the appeal as perfected operates as a stay and prevents this court from exercising any rights In the case until the supreme court proceedings are disposed of. 'However, if it Is too long to wait until the supreme court finally passes on the matter, we ask that you stay the pro ceedtngs In the trial until the appellants have an opportunity at least of present lng the question to a justice of the su preme court." Levy Mayer of counsel for the defend ants, after delay had beeji granted by Judge Carpenter said that the appllca tlon for a stay order from the supreme court would be made before Chief Jus tice White at Washington, probably on Thursday morning.
