Such motions and applications must be based upon an affidavit or a statement setting forth concisely the points claimed to have been overlooked or misapprehended by the court, with proper reference to the authorities relied upon, and the reason why such reargument should be granted or appeal allowed, together with a copy of the opinion, if any.

Upon an affidavit showing the service of such notice, a copy of the moving papers and a statement in such affidavit setting forth the reasons why a stay should be granted, an application for a stay will be entertained. Application for such an order must be made to the Justices of the Appellate Term who heard the appeal, or one of them, by presenting the same to the clerk of the Appellate Term, by whom it will be brought to the attention of the court. (As amended Dec. 31, 1909.)
