"Rosenthal Was Shot to Please Him;
It Was Done at His Order,'' De
clares Gambler in His Testimony
Backing Up the Dreadful Story
of Jack Rose.
"WHEN WILL YOU CROAK
HIM?" HE QUOTES BECKER
"I Told My Chauffeur," Witness De
clares Lieutenant Said, "That if I
Saw Rosenthal I Would Back
Him Up Against the Wall and
Kill Him."
"Bridgie" Webber, conductor of gambling houses and opium drums,
line uf the little patches of the underworld, added to-day to the Stile's
case against Police Lieut. Charles Decker, on trial for the murder of
Merman Rosenthal before Justice Cuff in extraordinary term of the
Supreme Court when he took the stand and corrobora ted Jack Rcj'5
UFaJrU. J 'If-l.'iT" 1 ! 1- 1 1 ...a.ga
u"uiiir, narrative 01 uvc murucr
Cool and clear-voiced, chopping out his testimony tersely, almost
woodenly, Webber put in the lips of the accused policeman all the rile
language he was alleged by Jack Rose to have used in denouncing the
gambler-informer and commanding that he be 'croaked."
ADDS A NEW CHARGE AGAINST BECKER.
He corroborated Rose, phrase for phrase, in quoting Decker and he
added as a new sensational charge against the defendant that Becker,
crowing over the murder a few hours after its commission had said:
"As I was driving past the Cadillac to-night I said to my ctiauffeur.
Otto, 'If we pass that Rosenthal I'm going to back him up against
a wall and take a shot at him and you put on more speed and don't
stop.' "
Webber told for the first time how the gunmen had been sicked on
to kill RostnthaL Me was the second witness of the day, Winfield R.
Sneehan, ( xmimissioner Waldo's secretary, preceding him on the stahu'.
Sheehan was called to Identify official documents of the Police Depart
ment which were marked to be later introduced in evidence. These
papers omtained signatures and reports of Becker, anonymous letters
and comnvinirations from Mayor Gaynor's office.
WEBBER DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A GANGSTER.
The courtroom was jammed and the police were still contending
with throngs of morbid men and women in the corridors when "Bridgie''
Webber was sworn and took his seat on the witness stand. There was
nbsolutely nothing to suggest the gambler or gangster In fne appear
ance of the dapper young man who came up smiling and rubbing his
hands from behind the jury box.
He wore a blue suit and black tie and was as carefully groomed as
Jack Rose. Also he was less nervous and not once did he have to be
asked to raise his voice to be heard. Every word he said was clear and
distinct and carried to the most remote corner of the tribunal.
Like tluae. he oarafully avoided rt
Ing hla case on Ilecker. He avoided
looking any peraon In th room In the
eyre, nxlng hla gase. It aeemed, upon
