YOUNG GAMBLER
BETRAYS PARTY
"Jack" Rose Reveals So Much That Police
Promise Arrest To-day of All
Who Fled in Auto.
ZELIG HAD BEEN APPROACHED
Asked To Do Rosenthal's Former Partner a Favor
Whitman Says Trail Led Where He Thought It
Would?Tells Waldo It's Up to Him to
Defend Reputation of Force.
"Jack" Rose, a gambler, who was formerly the partner of Her?
man Rosenthal, but more recently his enemy, surrendered to the po?
lice yesterday and the revelations he made were so important that
i Deputy Dougherty declared within twenty-four hours every man in
the automobile by which the murderers escaped Tuesday morning
would be behind the bars.
It was Rose who hired the car late Monday night, but he assert?
he left it two or three blocks before it stopped near the Metropole
Hotel. Rose revealed the name of one man who is believed to havr
started firing. He also told of a saloon where the party stopped in
The Bronx and took on two passengers before starting south for the
actual murder. He made other momentous disclosures which were
not given out.
After examination at Headquarters and before the District At?
torney. Rose was committed to the Tombs without bail on a homi?
cide chirge. He is a friend of Lieutenant Charles Becker, and is said
to have been the go-between in the $1.500 loan which Rosenthal al?
leged Becker made him.
"Big Jack" Zelig, notorious Apache leader of the East Side, came
suddenly into the front rank in the case when the police were in?
formed that Rose met the gangster the evening before the crime and
promised him that the charge of carrying concealed weapons now
hanging over him with regard to the recent gunplay in front of
the Criminal Courts Building would be dropped if he would do Rose
a favor. Lawyers retained by Zelig declared he was out of town
; the morning of Rosenthal's death.
"The situation has become very grave," said District Attorney
Whitman after a day's close attention to the case. "It seems as if the
police ought to clear up the matter now in quick order."
The District Attorney declared the trail led wh>ere he thought
; it would. He has previously ventilated his opinion that the police
were strangely lax in getting after Rosenthal's murderers. Last
night he wrote Commissioner Waldo that it was up to him to defend
! the reputation of the Police Department.
The District Attorney had as a visitor for almost three hours
last nig t ? man concerning whom he declined to speak Mr. Whit
( man, in his home, in No. 37 Madison avenue, received his caller
shortly after 8 o'clock, and it was a few minutes afttr 11 o'clock be?
fore the visiter was smuggled away. Mr. Whitman admitted the talk
had to do with the Rosentha! assassination and the gambling situa?
tion, and added to the reporters:
"I shall have nothing to say to-night conceming the man whe
called on mc. You have guessed why he was here. Perhaps to-mor?
row I shall have matters so arranged that I can discuss this visit
i to-night and give details of what I have learned."
The Mayor summoned Lieutenant Becker and Patrolmen Fay
and Steinhardt before him yesterday. Commissioner Waldo was
; present. All were silent on the details of the interview. In a letter
j to Waldo the Mayor said he could not understand why Becker should
t sit down to dinner with such a scoundrel, referring to Rosenthal.
Counsel for Louis Libby and William Shapiro, who owned the
I automobile, offered his clients as state witnesses and said they were
j willing to do all they could to help the District Attorney. They
! knew all the men in the car, he said, but had not told the police their
' names, nor had they repeated the conversation they heard. The
i chauffeur of the car. he said, told him that it was nowhere in the
neighborhood of Lieutenant Becker's home, at 165th street and
Edgecombe avenue, the evening before the evil deed. Rose, the
chauffeur said, left the car at "Bridgey" Webber's place, tw? m
three blocks distant from the Metropole.
A gambler who was once "outside man" for Webber's place was
' the one who called Rosenthal out from the Metropole, the police
have been informed. They expect to get him soon.
Scores of his friends in the gambling fraternity attended Rosen
i thal's funeral yesterday.
