ROSE GIVES FULL
MURDER STORY
TO MR.WHITMAN
Answers Rumors of Pressure to "Quit Tallring"
by Saying He Intends to Tell Truth
if It Cost His Life.
BECKER "MASTER OF HIS CASE
As Such Chooses Mclntyre to Aid in Defence?Littlc
ton Says He Is Considering Job?Shapiro Admits
Taking Slayers to Harlem After Murder
?Catskill Search Abandoned.
In a thirty-eight page document written in ink by himsclf and
jhanded to District Attorney Whitman last night "Jack" Rose ha*
put down a full story of his relations with Lieutenant Charlcs Becker.
including everything he knows of Becker's relations with Herman
Rosenthal.
Rose says he himself "colected" $15,000 a month for Becker.
that Becker had cther "collectors." and he gives the names of about
ten gamblers from whom corroboration of his graft charges can be
wrung.
Becker, in his cell in the Tombs. announced he was "the master
i of his own case.*' and that as such he had chosen John F. Mclnryr*
I as the lawyer he would have to assist John W. Hart in defending
him.
'"No 'svstem' suggested to me what counsel I should have," de?
clared Becker. "I am master of my own case and I retain the law?
yers I want."
In spite of Becker's positive announcement. Martin W. Littletcr.
asrerted that he still had under consideration the question of taking
the job of chief counsel to Becker. but he declined to say who had
offered it to him.
William Shapiro. chauffeur of the ?'murder car." hnally broke
down and admitted that he had tanen the slayers to Lenox avenue
and l.?8th street. which furnishes the police with the connecting link
between the Metropole and the uptown flat at which it had been
e^tablished the slayers gathered shortly after killing Rosenthal.
Burns detectives have found the evidence in the telephone com
pany's tally sheets to corroborate the fact related by Rose that he
i called Becker on the telephone from the telephone station in tha
i Times Building a few minutes after the Rosenthal murder.
Deputy Commissioner Dougherty announced that the search for
: the fugitives who were supposed to be in the Catskills had bee i
' abandoned because the police did not believe the men were in that
neighborhood now.
There will be a citizens' masa meeting in Cooper Union ne.vt
I Tuesday night. of which a further announcement will be made tt>
i morrow.
John Purroy Mitchel. President of the Board of Aldermen. may
receive an offer of a place on the special aldermanic police investi
gating committee by the withdrawal of one of the men previous'y
named.
"Jack" Rose declared yesterday, in response to insinuations that
he was going to "quit talking" because of pressure brought to bear
upon him. that he intended to "tell the full truth. if it cost him his
It developed also that the real fear of Rose. Weber and Valinsky
is not that thev will be done away with because of "squealing" or.
, those higher up. but that the gangmen of the East Side will "get"
them if they identify the actual gunmen who murdered Rosenthal.
