Morris Luban, Brought Here From
Newark Jail, Swears Conversation
Took Place at Lafayette Baths
Two Weeks Before Shooting.
AS ACTUAL SLAYERS
His Is the First Testimony Given at
the Trial Tending to Connect
Becker Directly With Killing.
District-Attorney Whitman launched a crushing and surprising blow
si Police Lieutenant Becker this afternoon when he brought Morris
Luban, ex-gangman and gambler, from the Newark jail to take the stand
before Justice Goff in extraordinary tarm of the Supreme Court.
Luban swore that two weeks before Herman Rosenthal was mur
dered he (the witness) was in the Lafayette Baths with Jack Rose, and
that he overheard Becker say to Ro9e:
"If that Rosenthal isnt croaked soon I'll croak him my
self." Becker started when Luban testified to this, his face became dead
white and for the first time since he went on trial for his life the big ex
lieutenant showed emotion.
In bringing the jury into the court-room one of the attendants
kicked over a metal cuspidor with a crash and clangor remarkably like a
discharge of artillery. The court-room throng jumped up from their
chairs in alarm.
Luban went into the witness
