POLICE POLICY RILES WHITMAN

With Commissioner Dougherty and Ins-ector Hughes making
their headquarters in his office a?l yesterday afternoon and evening,
District Attorney Whitman practically took charge of the Rosenthal
murder case yesterday, and nursed through what developments the
day brought forth. The three men tried Vallon, who gave himself
up early yesterday morning, and Vallon established an alibi.
Mr. Whitman said afterward he thought it likely that other men
whose names have been mentioned would come forward and give
themselves up, after they had estab'.ished alibis.
From his day of close association with Dougherty and Hughes,
combined with the work the three of them did together, Mr. Whit?
man believes now that the chief chance of getting at the real secret
of the Rosenthal murder lies in the hope of getting "Bridgie" Weber
to break down and tell what he knows.
Mr. Whitman is convinced that the gray automobile which hai
come to be known as the "murder car" has been a carefully prepared
That not a man who was in it as it drove away from the Metro?
pole had a gun on him;
That the car was sent up there, with "Jack" Rose practically in
charge, if not in the car, simply to act as a decoy, and that that was
the reason the license number was so freely displayed; and,
That the men who did the actual shooting were concealed in the
shadows around the hotel, did their murderous work, and then joined
the crowd of curious persons which quickly gathered.
POLICE INACTIVITY DISCOURAGES WHITMAN.
In view of all this Mr. Whitman is discouraged with the inactivity
of the police, although he believes that Dougherty and Hughes are
working with him "on the level" in an honest attempt to get at the
secret of Rosenthal's murder. Apart from them and their immediate
force, the District Attorney is convinced that the police are not help
At the conference in Mr. Whitman's rooms yesterday afternoon
and evening. it was learned Dpugherty at one time threw up his
hands and actually cried at the lack of progress and the stonewall
against which they seemed to be halted. It was learned that Dough?
erty told Mr. Whitman that Commissioner Waldo had said to hirat
"Dougherty, I want you to go out and get these men, and don't lel
that man Whitman get away with it."
Word was brought to Mr. Whitman's friends yesterday that
Waldo. at the Union Club on Monday night, had said to a friend
"There's nothing in all this cry about the police. Becker is one
of the finest policemen on the force."
After a four-hour session with Harry Vallon yesterday, in the
course of which he established a detailed alibi for himself so far as
the actual murder of Herman Rosenthal was concerned, the pollce
and District Attorney Whitman, working together, gave up their
attempt to make him "squeai" and closed the day practically not any
nearer a solution of the case than they were the day before.
With no occupant of the murder car in their hands on whom to
work, it leaked out last night, they will turn all their attention to-day
to "Bridgie" Weber, in whose rooms, at 42d street and Sixth avenuc,
the men who were concerned in the Rosenthal murder met just
before the shooting.
Mr. Whitman refused to deny that "Bridgie" Weber was the man
upon whom the police and investigators were now banking. After
a conference yesterday with Harford T. Marshall, Weber's counsel,
the Di.trict Attorney bound Mr. Marshall to secrecy.
Weber is known among the gambling fraternity as a "weak
iister," and the men actually concerned in the murder of Rosenthal
have been more afraid of Weber's breaking down and telling what
he knows than of any one else. Mr. Whitman let it be known on
Monday that any of the men now m custody could obtain absolute
imn.unity oy oarmg t-.e real piot which rcSuiie_i in r-cocuuid-'s death,

Attorney to make Weber teil everything about the murder and obtain
immunity toi himself.
Detectives from the Burns agency were busy yesterday, and it
developed that Burns, anticipating matters somewhat, had had some
of his men at work for several days. Five of the Burns men, it is said,
have been seen by the regular detectives working around the Tender
lion resorts where gamblers foregather, and these have been trailed,
either ofhcially or unorhcially, by city detectives.
Meanwhi> Burns has sent out other men to do the real investi
gating, having expected that the regular aetcctives ot tne torce would
be quite likely to try to spy upon the movements of his men. Thus
he has provided a few men for the city detectives to trail around so
that his real workers may go ahead unhampered by ony one.
Henry H. Curran, chairman of the Finance Committee of the
Board of Aldermen. called upon Mr. Whitman yesterday to find out
just what he wanted in the way of a special appropriation in the
Rosenthal case. If Mr. Whitman wants t.ie city to pay for the Burns
investigation, as it is believed he does. A.derman Curran will intro
duce a resolution for special revenue bonds to cover that expense.
Although Mr. Whitman has said that he would accept aiu from
iny source that would tend to solve the murder mystery and the
gambling graft back of it, he is also said that in such a case, which
involves the honor of the city's police force, he believes the city itseli
