"There Is Only One Thing to Do
With a Fellow Like That,'' Gam
bler Quotes Lieutenant in His
Amazing Story on Stand, "and
That Is to Stop Him for All Time."
"IT'S SAFE TO
Congratulate You," Rose Says
Becker Replied When He Phoned
cf the Shooting, and Declares He
Said: "The Sight of the Body Was
a Pleasing Thing."
Over the moat indiicnant protetfs, John P. Mclntyre, chief counsel
for PoiiCd UeutalMtl (Charles Becker, wa, forced this afternoon to take
up ihe croswxaminalion of Jack Hose in the extraordinary term of the
Supreme Court where Becker is on trial for the murder of Herman
Rosenthal. The Justice declared that the cross-examination must be
liiiished by midnight.
Mr. Mclivtyre sought by every means in his power to break the
force of the story that Rose had told. He tried to trap him into contra
dictions and into making admissions that would tend to discredit him,
but the gambler stuck to his story with amazing firmness.
Rose at the morning session had told an astounding story of black
mail, grafting and murder. He declared that Becker had stood over the
Ixxly of Rosenthal and gloated over his death.
"It was a pleasure to look at the Jew," Rose quoted Becker as say
Ing. "If it had not been lor the presence of District-Attorney Whitman
I would have cut out his tongue and hung it up somewhere as a warn
ing 10 other squealers."
For three hours Rose held the packed court room in irrnosl breath
less suspense by probably the most dramatic and thrilling narrative of
graft, tif conspiracy and of crime thai has ever issued from the lips of a
witness in the history of criminal jurisprudence in this county.
WITSESS BECOMES CALM AS HE TELLS STOHY.
Beginning with evidences of trepidation and nervousness, he grad
ually settled down to a calm and emotionless recital of his confession of
the part he and Becker played in collecting graft from Herman Rosenthal
and then planning to get rid of him in order to save exposure and a
great public scandal. Never once did he falter or hesitate in detailing
his narrative and he delivered his story in perfect sequence.
It was as sure and accurate a delivery as any actor ever gave on
the stage. Only when he came to his account of the plotting on the
evening before the crime did he attempt any dramatic emphasis. Then
he spoke in a clear but not loud voice and with an intense earnestness.
In all the courtroom throng there was not a Ivtler dressed or more
carefully barbered and manicured man than the witness. He wore a suit
of blue homespun material that fitted his big frame smoothly as a glove,
high turned-down collar and a knitted silk four-in-hand tie. His black
shoes had been polished to mirror brilliance and when he pulled up his
tightly crea-e.l trousers lie revealed a pair of azure blue silk socks.
Tho previous eccues of riot and disorder It. tho neighborhood of the
courtroom weru not repeated when the trial waa resumed to-day, but
