State Closes Its Case, Court Over
rules Motion to Dismiss, and Mcln
tyre Opens Defense To-morrow
Baffled at every attempt to Introduce evidence of Lieut. Charles
Ueiker's many ami heavy hank deposits, the prosecution in the trial of
the ICC used police lieutenant for the murder of Rosenthal before Justice
(iotl in extraordinary term suddenly rested its case at 4.25 o'clock this
afternoon.
Mclntyre, chief counsel for Becker, then made the usual motions
that Justice Goff dismiss the case, to instruct the jury to bring in a
verdict of acquittal for lack of evidence set forth by the prosecution and
kindred leal moves, all of which were denied by Justice Goff. The
Justice, upon Mclntyre's request, granted adjournment until the morning.
Sam Schcpps had been recalled to the stand to jive the defeme
more latitude in cross-exaitaination. He was temporarily withdrawn and
Daniel A. Hentien of the Franklin Savings Bank was called. He said an
account wis opened in the hfiK In April, 1912.
M'lNTYRE OPENS BIG LEGAL BA TTLE.
Mr. Mclntyre wis on his feet instantly, fightinf; bitterly to prevent
the opening wedge by which the State hoped to show the great sums
made by Becker as head of the Vie Squad.
"The tate," he shouted, "Is trying to prove this prisoner guilty of
bribery, not murder, and seeking to tnflarne Che public mind."
"We desire to sliow," said Mr. Mow, "that there was a motive for
il is mirrder. That motive was that Rosenthal wa endangering Becker's
source of revenue. We want to etrnw that Rose's testimony was true.
He mKI he was decker's p;raft collector, and we want lo show he was."
