FEAR THEIR OWN
All Three Prisoners Look for Vengeful
Action from Gunmen When They Are
Taken to Court Before Coroner Again.
ROSE TWICE SOUGHT ARREST
Asked to Come Aga n on First Headquarters Visit?
Waldo Declares Courts Give Gamblers What
Amounis to Protection?Becker To
Be Formally Arraigned.
Through Jamcs M. Sullivan. attorney for "Jack" Rose, the bald- |
headed gambler made public yesterday, for the first time in any
authorized statement, some of his movements as he has previously
detailed them to District Attorney Whitman.
Rose will be brought before Coroner Feinberg to-day, and the
District Attorney. it is said. will insist on extra precautions by the
police to protect the gambler from harm. Not only Rose; but
"Bridgie" Weber and Harry Valinsky, or Vallon, profess with great
seriousness to fear that the gunmen will kill them to-day when they.
go to court.
Rose's first authentic story relates that when he went to Head?
quarters to give himself up he presented himself at Commissioner
Waldo's office and asked for that official. He was told to return
later, he says, and left the building to do some telephoning, coming
back as directed. This was at a time when the Police Department
was supposed to be "hunting" for him. Rose, in fact, confirms the
story printed exclusively in The Tribune at the time, that he virtually I
had to beg the police to arrest him.
"Becker ordered me to go to Police Headquarters and give my
self up," Rose said yesterday. "He said that I wouldn't be detained,
would just have to answer some questions by Dougherty, and then
they'd turn me out. I went down because Becker told me to."
With regard to the search for the remaining two fugitivea
wanted for the murder of Herman Rosenthal, Deputy Commissioner
Dougherty said yesterday that the reports from the Catskill region
were encouraging and he expected Inspector Hughes and the men
there with him would soon capture "Gib the Blood" and "Leftie
Louie." Dispatches from Catskill, however, declare the fugitives
have not as yet been found, much less surrounded.
Lieutenant Charles Becker, under indictment for the murder of
Rosenthal, will be arraigned before Judge Mulqueen in the Court
of General Sessions to-day for a formal pleading to the charge. It
is probable that the date for his trial will be fixed.
Police Commissioner Waldo issued a long statement defendin&
and praising the present police administration. He said that it was
a "matter of common knowledge" that money had been collected by!
inspectors and others, and gave that as one of the chief reasons for j
the installation of the special squads to handle gambling, such _s
that Lieutenant Becker was at the head of.
The Police Commissioner asserts that the courts are responsible
for the present scandal. "Gambling can exist," he said, "only be?
cause the gamblers can obtain what amounts to protection from the
District Attorney Whitman left Manchester, N. H., yesterday
and will return to New York by way of Albany. Mr. Whitman con
