"THEYLL KILL ME," GAMBLER TOLD WHITMAN
V
"KNEW HE D BE MURDERED,
Zfttg wis released on bail after a murderous gunfight on the Criminal
Courts steps a few weeks ago, loaded with a band of desperadoes who
were evidently sent to kill anybody that tried to "get" Zelig. The po
lice drove the automobile away that time before there was bloodshed.
CHAUFFEUR ARRESTED, GAMBLERS SOUGHT.
Zellc's bondsman, and his eood friend always, is Sam Paul. Rosen
thal's attack on the connection which he said existed between gamblers ;
and the police made specific mention of Sam Paul's place, which is in 1
the old Sans Souci Music Hall. Third avenue and Thirteenth street. Paul's I

i
rectly at odds with what is known among sporting
crowd" made up of men who, like Rosenthal, have always sought the
friendship of the Sullivan clan and have fought for its political advance
ment. A friend of the murdered man called on District Attorney Whitman
this afternoon, bringing with him a scared and reluctant man, whose
name was withheld from publication.
Thb man said he had gone on an outing of the Sam Paul Associa
tion to Northport, Long Island, last Sunday. He had watched a poker
game in which men known to him as Dollar John, Hridgey Webber and
Jack Rose were playing with four other men whose names he did not
know. They were discussing Rosenthal's so-called "squeal."
"Don't bother about him," the witness quoted one of the players
riot necessarily one of those named as saying. "If he doesn't quit
within the next few days we'll get him and get him for keeps."
There are several men named Jack Rose In sporting circles on the
east side. By a strange coincidence Jack Rose is also the name of the
closest friend of Lieut. Charles Becker outside the Police Department.
There were reports sent out a little before 4 o'clock this afternoon
that the police were on the verge of making three new arrests and had
every reason to believe that they would know all about the murder of
Rosenthal before sunset to-morrow.
Within thrM hours after Rosenthal was shot to death three men were
in custody.
Louis Ubby, part owner of a garage at No. 72 Washington Square
South, was locked up at Police- Headquarters. The police are satisfied
that the automobile which took the murderers to the Metropole was his
and -was dnvtn by him. They say they have men who will swear that
Libby is one of those who shot Rosenthal down. He is a square, thick
set youth, lew of brow and with a thrust-out chin, who is a frequenter
ot the Second avenue cafes. Libby is charged with murder. He was
caught at his lodgings, No. 35 Stuyvesant street.
A man whose identity the police tried to hide under the name of
John Doe, but who Is known among gamblers as John Ross, or Clark,
or. Wood or Koch, was arrested by Deputy Commissioner Dougherty
as he was about to enter a Forty-fourth street gambling house, just be
fore daylight He was ostensibly "detained as a witness." The police
say that he was in and about the hotel just before the shooting and that
they believe he knows much that will help them put their hands on the
whole band of assassins.
LIBBY' S GARAGE PARTNER ALSO ARRESTED.
William Shapiro, the partner of Libby in the garage and automobile
business, with whom he shared rooms, Is held, like ''John Doe," as a
material witness.
According to the police, Shapiro is likely to know as much as
Libby about, the personnel of the band of murderers. The police assert
r , positively that the gray automobile used by Rosenthal's assassins has
t figured before In crimes committed by east side desperadoes.
' ' When Inspector Hughes was asked, a little before noon to-day, If
b the police had talked with Paul, he said:
T "I shall Hot say whether we have tried to find Sam Paul or not,
L but: I will say that he is not in custody."
I Though Mrs. Rosenthal told District-Attorney Whitman, who began
l an Investigation of the, murder In person at 6 o'clock this morning, that
, her husband never owned a revolver and would not carry one, the police
reported at noon that one had been found in his pocket.
; In her statement to the District-Attorney, Mrs. Rosenthal men
k, tbned a former theatrical man and close companion of her husband. In
1 .specter Hughes refused to say whether this man was in custody, though
there were rumors In the White Light District that he had been arrested
with the witness "John Doe" by Deputy Doughertyi
SUSPECT HELD AFTER DENIAL OF ACT.
,' Ubby tu taken before District-Attorney Whitman nt noon by ln-
K apector Hughes and Deputy Comtnlnloner Dougherty, who had brought
mm flown from Police Headquarters In nn automobile After halt an
tour's talk with the DUtrlct-Attorney, Libby denied that he had been In
the big gray car last night.
"Shapiro had the car laat night," he said. "I was not In It."
"Do you mean thatT" aiked tbo Dlitrlct-Attorney sharply.
Libby shifted about a little, and then said he wouldn't talk any more
until be had seen a lawyer. He was taken across tho street to Coroner
Fslnbsrg and waived any protest against being remanded to Pollco Head-
marten for twenty-four hours.
Notwithstanding his denial that he was In the car, the pollco have been
toU that Shapiro and Libby both appeared at the garage In South Wash
ington Square at about 2.30 o'clock thli morning, nud left the car, saying
that If anybody asked when the car had come In he was to be told that
Libby and Shapiro had been at Couoy Inland with the car and had como iu
between 11 o'clock and midnight. Shapiro stuck to thU story when ho was
arrested.
The position of Lieut. Decker, against whom most serious charges
were made, was a topic for much spsculatlou umoiu: pnllcanien and gam
blers to-day. It was announced for Police Commissioner Waldo that
Becker would not be disturbed In bis present assignment unless tho District
Attorney asked for such a change. The whole gambling ultuatlon has le;n
turned oyer to the District-Attorney by tho Commissioner. If no criminal
prosecution is made out against any officer of the 1'ollco Department there
will be a second investigation by the Comnilsbtoner, and then, If chnrgea
against a policeman are proved, the offender will bo dropped from the
department
Men who were about the Metropole between 1 and 2 o'clock this mornlnj
ressembersd to-day that there seemed to be troublo In tho air. One men
who was passing the hotel at 1 o'clock noticed three different groups of
men hanging back near the entrance talking In low tones. A man from
one of the groups -walked over and stared this man In the face with a scowl
when he paused to take a second look at the furtive consultations. Thcro
ara usually a lot of tax I cabs crowded along the curb In front of tho Metro
pole until (pie gray of dawn. There were none there between 1 and 2 thin
swnlng.
ROSENTHAL ANSWERED CALL HE EXPECTED.
Herman Qosenthal, with that nervousness which is but natural In a
nan who had been warned twonty times within a day that bo was doomod
to die within a fow hours, sat with u group of friends In tho restaurant
talking over his troubles. Ho told thorn ho was expecting to bo called by u
friend. He left tlto group once ami wcut out. Then he returned, and rb he
was about to sit down a man not known to tho friends about him tapped
susa on the shoulder and said:
"Somebody wants to see you outside."

Tells
Story of Her Husband's Last Moments
With HerDeclares His Death Not
Due to Any War Among Gamblers.
Broken-hearted at the tragic death of her husband, the widow of
Rosenthal sat to-day in the house of mourning, which had been Rosen
thal's gambling house till the police suppressed it, waiting for news of
the arrest of the gambler's slayers.
When an Evening World reporter was admitted to the home In
West Forty-fifth street, Mrs. Rosenthal herself opened the lower door.
At the same moment a policeman In uniform rang the bell of the upper
door, which had been the entrance of the gambling house, and told the
police sentry on duly In the hall that be could report back to the station.

Mrs. nosenthal, heard this meuut:
The captain says for you to report

keeping a man here any more."
The widow threw out her hands
dramatically.
"Thero he aoes!" she exclaimed,
throwing herself In a chair, sobbing.
"My Herman Is dead. Ths man who
hated him has hla wish. Ths oppreatlon

WIFE DECLARED THAT GAMB
LERS WEREN'T WORRIED.
"I have Juat said to Dlitrlct-Attorney
Whitman and I say to you that the
murder Is not due to any war he may
have had In the pait with other gamb

all day yeiterday. Borne were friends
who coma to advlae blm to get out ot
town. Others were gamblers who
wanted to know how far he meant to
go In hla testimony. To all ot them he
said that he did not mean o reveal any
gamblera' names or to get any gambler
Into trouble. The gamblers all under
stood that and were not worrying.
"Herman came home at 4 o'clock
yeiterday afternoon with Dick Bernard,
here In thla room Dick told i.rm.
he better go away for a few daya.
"Herman told Dick Juat what he said
he had told you a few minutes before:
I shsll not leave New York for any.

mean to be driven out of It by any
man's threats.'
"And Ister Isst night at f o'clock he
began to get nervous and said he was

to stay In. I told him they might kill

"Out there waa one big mistake made
when my Herman was killed. They
thought he was tho only one who knew

to-day. They did not know that I had
all hla confidence, knew everything that

Rosenthal left nia homo at No. HI

last night to go to tho Metropole Hotel.
His wife rays she begged him not to go.
that she had a presentiment something
would happen to him.
"If I'm going to get It I'll get It some
time," ihe eaya he replied. "Thoy can t
do me any harm; I'm able to take care
ot myself and will be back At 2 o'clock."
WAS GOINQ WITH HUSBAND TO
WHITMAN.
Mrs. Rosenthal sat by the window as
she talked. Kvery little whlto her voice
seemed to become mechanical as she
drifted In a monotone through her
tragic story. Though her face wai
iwolten with crying and her hair waa
railing in loose strands about her shoul
ders hor face showed many Indication!
of the striking beauty which had made

wero seen In IJroadway restaurants.
"I know the namea of the men who

man with him to-day.
"Poor Herman) He never fought
back. Even when they came here and
blew up our front steps with a bomb
he would not carry a revolver. He
was such a man that he would not
have ono of the things In the houne."
Mm. Rosenthal did not know at this
tlnio that the police said they had
found a revolver In tho dead man's
pocket. Iter friends eay that he prob
ably kept his poBPcPslon of It a secret
from her to rave her from worry.
"'All day yesterday people stood before
tho Iijuj," ho went on, "all along

house, and I knew they were telling
peopld that Herman Rosenthal lived
here and that the police were keeping n

that he could not' do business, though
everybody else In the block could do
business and they were laughing at us.

return to their home, No. 1M West Forty-fifth street.
"What's happened?" asked Mrs. Rosenthal when she opened the door to

Shortly after the District-Attorney arrived, Itcputy Police Commissioner
Dougherty nnd Inspector Hughe reached the station to assist In the Inquiry.
loiter the District-Attorney with a stenographer went to the Rosenthal homi
and found Mrs. Rosenthal able to give him all tbo Information sho had despite

On the very steps ot the hotel, flvo men, all young, all wearing clothes
of the latest Broadway cut, closed In about lilm, put revolvers at his hoad,
and whllo he stood staring at them, speechless with horror, shot him to
death. His body slumped to the sidewalk and lay there with tho hat still
In one hand and the handkerchief in the other.
The Ave murderers ran swiftly up the street to a gray automobile
which was waiting for them with open doors and throbbing engine. They
easily outdistanced Dotectlve Pryo and Policemen Madlgan and File, who
chased them In n taxlcab, but lost all trace of them at Madison avenue and
Fifty-eighth street.
Within two hours tho car In which they had escaped had been traced
by Ita license numbor to n gnrago nt No. 72 Washington squsro South. It
was there that Montanl, the owner and driver ot the taxlcab used in the
$2D,000 bnnlcnoto robbery, last spring, kopt his cabs. Louis Libby the
owner and drive" ot the gray car which tho detectives had traced, was ar
rested. Later, he was identified cs ono o! the men who had shot Rosenthal.
Ills home Is nt No. 35 Stuyvosant Htrcct. Ho had a stand near the Cafe
Iloulevard, in Second avenue, a neighborhood in which has centered tho bat
tlo between Rosenthal nnd hla fellow Knmblers and tho police. The pollco
profess to know t tint Llbby's car was hired by Rosenthal's murderers last
ulght In front of the Cafo Boulevard.
But certain It is that Little Vlonnn Second avenue from Fourteenth
street to Houston talked of but llttlo olso than Rosenthal's fight with tho
pollco last night. Ho had a few Irloads In tho chattering groups over tho
cafo tables. Ho was spoken of as ono who had struck a blow at tho main
means ot making a living of many of tho people along Second avenuo.
"LITTLE VIENNA" NOT DAZED BY TRAGEDY.
A llttlo group In the Vienna Restaurant, nearly opposlto the old Hosper
Club, which was a slight cloak for Rosenthal's gambling enterprises for
many years, talked so loudly that they were frequently warned by others to
lower their voices.
"Tncy'U get him. Don't worry, they'll got him!" was the burden of
their talk about Rosenthal.
At five minutes past 2 o'clock this morning, not ten minutes after Rosen
thal had been shot down, a youth in his shirt sleeves ran in, shouting to this
group:
"They got hlra nil right! They got him. Ho Is dead."
Tbo group hastily rose, knocking over some ot tbelr chairs, and rushed
out into tho street.
Herman Rosouthal lived at No. 104 West Forty-fifth street. Ho had
living rooms in the basement and at the top of tho bouse. With him lived
his wife, who was formerly tho wife of bain Harris, the theatrical managor,
and a brother, who la on Interpreter In the Criminal Courts. The middle
part of tho housu Is a gambling house, but has not been used for several
months sine; Lieut, Htckcr. who was accused by Rosenthal on Saturday ot
having been his silent partner, raided the place and statlonel a policeman
an guard In tho lnlluny.
Rosenthal, with his nightly professional occupation gone, became a fre
quenter of tho now Hotel Metropole, which was establlshol by tho Const-
dines, but has been for several weeks In the hands of a receiver. Ho usually
sat In tho cafo at a sldo table. Bometimos he had men with him, especially
In tho lost fuw nights, with whom ho held whispered conversations.
Rosenthal left his home at nine o'clock last night. In spite of the protests of
his wlfit that sho had ii premonition that hs would be murdered If he went on
the ftriets. MerkaKcs had been received at hla houae over the telephone and
from men who rutin! In person to tell him that hla life hod been la danger
since Haturday, and that the danger wai growing more grave every minute.
Frank McOtvcran, the night clerk, saw Rosenthal enter about on o'clock.
The hotel 1ms an all-night license and bar and cafe are never closed. Th clerk
saw Head Walter Smith conduct him to hla uauat table agatnat the wall.
Rosenthal vat with a group of gamblers and friends In the restaurant of th
Metropo'.u for an hour before he waa killed. Among them were Charlt O'Day,
JudgH Crowley, Sandy Clemmnns and a man named MuMahon.
O'Duy said to-day that before Rosenthal aat with him and two othera he
had H't-n Rosenthal roving among the tablea, apparently not quit masKr of
himself, obviously nervous and pale, trying to get a smile or an encouraging
word from mumbers of the sporting community who were sitting there. He
had many rebuffs. When he dropped Into a chair with O'Day and th rest, be
said to O'Day:
"Charley, you know I nm no aqueslor, don't your'
I am not interested, iiorman," u Day said he replied. "You know I am
not In the gambling game. Utt'a talk about something else."
Rosenthal aat with them moodily (or som time, O'Day aald, now and then
trying to break Into the conversation and getting little encouragement. At
quarter before two o'cloek he went out and came back with conies of the early
nownpiporu nnd burled himself In thorn, reading uocounts of hla campaign
against Reeker. While he waa thus engaged a man whom rtosenthal seemed
to rrcognlie came In.
"I've got aomebody outalde that wanla to aee you, Herman," said th stranger,
Rosenthal hurried out, hla hat In on hand and a handkerchief trailing In the
other. Ths persons In ths rats paid little attention; they could not rsnitmbtr
to-day whether the man who called Rosenthal went out first or second.
A moment later came the sharp cracking of revolvers In the ttreet. The caf
of the hotel was about half filled. Among the persons who were In th con
fusion which filled the placo aa word went' from mouth to mouth that a,.man
had been murdered were Charles Rosa, the actor; George Weeks, r.eo Harrison,
John Hyams and his wife, I.clla Mclntyre and former Detective William File,
now a plain policeman. File was oft duty; It was ho who took th lead In the
chase for the murderers.
File, who waa In the corridor of the reitaurant when Rosenthal went, out to.
his death, told Inspector Hughes that from the revolver flashes which he saw,
at least one man was hiding behind a tub ot artificial rhrubbcry it the aide
of the door. Thla man. File thought at tho.tlmc fired five shots. File dashed
put to the street, tie ssld. The man from 'behind the bueh was almost nt the'
automobile. Tho others wero already In It.
Coroner's Physician Schulte made an autopsy on Rosenthal's body this nftor
noon. He found that only two bullets had struck the gambler. One enteral his
cheek, passed through tho root of tho tongue and lodged In tho spine. The other
had been tired Into the centro of the gambler's he id, either aa ho fell or as h.)
lay on the grounl. Towdcr marks showed that tho revolver bad been held
ngulnat the scalp when this bullet was tired.
ASSASSINS CAME IN AUTO, STOPPED NEARBY.
This Is what happened Just before Herman Rosenthal appeared on the steps
of the hotel and ltoked up and down the street looking tor the man he was to
meet, as told by Chsrles U. aallegher, an actor, ana Clark Conte ot tho Elks
Club:
The gray touring car with six men In It, four In the tonneau and the driver
and another man In front, rolled past tho Hotel Metropole and pulled up a hun
dred feet or more to the east and on tho other side of the street Th driver
nnd the four men In tho tonneau got out, two on one side and three on the
other. The man on the scat next to the wheel remained with the car. Th
engine was kept In action.
The two men who got out on the left side ot the car crossed the street and
walked back toward tho Metropole slowly. The other three walked back a
llttlo faster on the other sldo of the street, nnd then crossed, so that all flv
met nt the hotel door. Almost at the umo Instant Rosenthal appeared. They
stepped up rlo to him, fired their revolvers at his head and four of them
dahcd diagonally across tho Urcet to the automobile.
The fifth, a slim, keen eyed, dark min with eyes like a hawk, dressed tn a
neatly creased blue scrgo suit nnd with a black slouch hat pulled down over
h's eyes, lingered for u moment peering down at tho dead gambler's face, as
though tn be sure that tho bullets had really killed him. Th-n he ran
swiftly after the othera. When ho reached the car It was already moving
nnd when he sprang to the running board it was ore wan a uouna. lie cnmoea
Into the tonneau as It swerved Into Fifth avenue. I
Police I.leut. Kdward Frye was at Forty-third street and Seventh avenue.
Policeman Thomas Rrndy at Forty-third street and Broadway and Policeman
Tom Madlgan at Forty-fourth street and Rroadway. Former Detective Fyles,
now a policeman, had been eating with two men In the hotel and was coming
out when the shooting took place.
Fyles shouted to John Koran, chauffeur ot a taxlcab, and In a moment Lieut.
Frye and Policeman Fyles nnd Madlgan were speeding after the flying touring
car. This is Denuvcu to nave neon rcsponsiDio ror mo report tnai one or mors
of the men who did the shooting wore a policeman's uniform. They left Police
man Hrady to guard the body, which was already surrounded by a large and
(Netted crowd, Including many women In evening dress who had been to after
theatre suppers.
The gray car shot round Into Fifth avenue before the taxlcab had a good
start. The pursuers learned from W. S. Wells, u milkman of No. as Fulton
tiieet, Brooklyn, that the touring car with the assassins had turned Into Forty
sixth street and had gone east. The tnxlcab followed, and It was learned from
a rltlien that It had turned Into Madison avenue nt Forty-sixth street, and had
gone north. The policemen kept up the chase to FUty-elghth street and could

GREAT CROWD SURROUNDS BODY.
By th tlm they got back to the Metropole there was a crowd of S.OOq or
more persons. Rosenthal's body was lying where It fell, covered with a table-
