" MILLIONAIRE " EX-COP i
IS UNDER GRAFT PROBE, t
Bank Officials Questioned About
Becker's Deposits of $9,000
During Month of May.
"Jack" Rose and "Bridgie" Webber were the leading witnesses be
fore the Grand Jury this afternoon in the investigation into the slaying
of Herman Rosenthal and the circumstances that brought about the trag
edy. Although the Grand Jury devoted much attention during the ss-
skm to the actual murder, Rose and Webber swore to an amazing story
of police graft that reached its climax In the gambler's murder.
The two informers were nervous and ill at ease as they sat in an
ante room with a dozen other witnesses and awaited their turn. The tO
urn omiKPrniMUKi 'Mifwwgwitf 9iw(?tonr mrn
was not disclosed, but he Is supposed to have been influenced by rumors
that ROM and Webber had many witnesses who have been subpoena?.!
have decided to content themselves with telling ail they know about (tM
murder and as little as they possibly can tell about police graft.
ROSE HARRIS BEFORE GRAND JURY.
An important witness before the Grand Jury In the murder inquiry
was Rose Harris, in whose rooms In Harlem "Dago Frank" Cirotki wns
arrested. The very fact that Rose Harris went before the Grand Jury
indicated that she had been brought over to the side of the District
Attorney by Deputy Commissioner Doughetry, in whose custody she
has been since her arrest.
Rose Harris was, up to a couple of months ago, Cirofki's "girl."
They separated, but kept up a sort of friendship. When "Dago Prank"
was arrested he proceeded to produce an alibi showing that he was at
the Hast One Hundred and Twenty-sixth street police station offering
bail for Rose Harris, who had been arrested a few minutes after Rosenthal
was killed in Forty-third street.
During the Grand Jury investigation this afternoon District-Attorney
Whitman made a final effort to force a confession from William
Shapiro, the man who drove the gray murder car. Mr. Whitman is
certain that Shapiro personally knew the four murderers whom he took
to the scene of the crime and hurried away, but Shapiro has denied he
recognized them. ; -. ipf
An official of the Lincoln Trust Company named Griflin was the
tirst witness this afternoon. He had no knowledge of the murder, and
his testimony had to do with certain deposits made by persons named to
him. Then Thomas Coupe, a clerk in the Ulks' Qub in West Forty
third street, was called.
Coupe had no knowledge on the praft subject, but he saw the grav
