He la son of a former Ntnte Nuperlntendent of Instraetlen.
Over Ihc protests of his lawyer, John F. Mclntyre, Police Lieuten
ant Charles Uecker was forced this afternoon to go to trial on the char"
of murder in the tirst degree for the killing of gambler Herman Rosen
thal. Mclntyre had attenrpteJ to secure dehy on account of the illness
of John W. Hart, one of the counsel for Becker, but Justice Goff refused
to delay the case, and Becker was ordered to the bar.
The six gangers "(iyp the Blood," "Dago Frank," "Lefty
Louie," "Whitie" Lewis, Jtck Sullivan and Shapiro, the chauffeur
were called out of the pen and arraigned with him. This was done as
all seven names are included in the blanket indictment charging a
conspiracy to murder Rosenthal, engineered by Becker and carried out
by the four gun men. Four lawyers stood up with the seven alleged
murderers when Mr. Whitman moved tor the trial of Charles Becker
Hartford Marshall, counsel for Jack Sullivan, said he was ready to
go to trial and Jesired to have Sullivan tried with Becker. This little
move was blocked when the District-Attorney made a special request tha
Becker be tried separately. This motion was granted arid the policeman's
co-defendants were sent back to trie Tombs.
Becker was then formally called to trial and took his place within the
rail beside his array of lawyers. . BJMBMBl

Court whispered a aenlal.
Decker'a counsel disregarded the denial.
"Certain circumstances." hn said, "have arisen that have made It rnf
poaafile for my client to a fair trial at thin time. I refer to the mur

"The District-Attorney has made false and outrafteoue statements con
cerning the death of ZellK."
"This It no time for eloquenVe, Mr. Mclntyre." continued Justice Ooft.
The lawyer went on, hla volco vibrating with paailon:
"The District-Attorney has churned that the death of Zellg removes
an important wltueaa for the pruuocutloa when he well knew that

"When ho know," said Mclntyre, "that Zellg was a valuable witness for

"A man of your espeiienre should
