CONNIVE TO LET
County Authorities Feel That Becker and
Other Members of Force Know Where
Fugitives Are?Whitman Incensed.
SAYS ARRESTS WERE FORCED
Men Taken Only When His Sleuths Were Close Upon
Them, RemaTks District Attorney?New Eye
witness Tells of Apathy?Accused Lieu?
tenant Present on Affidavit Trip.
District Auorncy Whitman expressed himself yesterday as
thoroughly incensed at the. inactivity of the police in apprehending
"Sam" Schepps. "Lefty Louie" Rosenberg and Harry Horowit/.
known as "Gib the Blood," the three men wanted for the shooting
of Herman Rosenthal who are still at large. The authorities feel
that Lieutenant Charlcs Becker and other policemen know where
these men are.
Mr. Whitman declared that Frank Muller ("Whitie Lewis")
and Frank Cirohci ("Dago Frank") were not arrested until detee
tives from the District Attorney's office were close on their trail.
Giovanni Stanish. the eyewitness of Rosenthal's murder who
! was found by the District Attorney without the aid of the police.
will be the star witness for the prosecution. His story to the grand
jury was the most convincing as regards the actual crime told by
any witness to that body. He positively identified four men as
Ithose who actually did the shooting, picking them out readily from
1 a large batch of photographs which he had never seen before.
Slanish is a highly educated Austnan and speaks four or five
' languages. A close friend of the District Attorney knew him well
and brought him to> Mr. Whitman's office.
SULLIVAN RETURNED. HE SAYS.
Stanish was standing in a doorway next to the Metropole at
the time of the shooting. He said he saw "Jack" Sullivan with
the four men whe did the shooting. Sullivan started to run away
with them, Stanish asserttd, but suddenly retufned to Rosenthal's
body, turned it over and shouted to the escaping gunmen, "He's
dead. all right."
Stanish dwelt at length in his testimony before the grand jury
on the actions of the police following the shooting. He said the
gunmen had got into their car and it was out of sight before any
uniformed policemen appeared. The gunmen did not seem to be
in any great hurry in making their getaway. he said.
While the murderers were making their escape Policcman Will
iam J. File, who had been off duty in the Metropole. stood on the
hotel stoop waving his revolver in the air and shouting, "Where
! are they?" the witness said. Later File got into a taxicab and pur
i sued the fleeing automobile. File. who had been suspended under
I charges of neglect of duty, was reinstated by Commissioner Waldo
Information coming from Rose. "Bridgie" Weber and Harry
I Valinsky, or Vallon. who are in the prison of the West Side court,
; to the District Attorney yesterdav purported to reveal the where
abouts of Schepps in a country section somewhere near the city.
Mr. Whitman sent two of his detectives out to run down the clew.
Word went out from the District Attorney's ofFce that Schepos
| could expect no leniency. and would be indicted for murder in the
i first degree unles? he gave himself up by Tuesday. The authorities
are anxious to get him as a witness against Becker.
"Jack" Sullivan is expected to join Rose. Weber and Vallon in
Itelling the District Attorney all he knows about the plot and shoot
' ing of Rosenthal. He is with the three "confessors" in the West
Side prison and on good terms with them. It was said that Sullivan
"stood pat" yesterday, but showed some disposition to join in the
confidences of his companions.
BECKER WAITED OUTSIDE.
The Tribune learned yesterday that Lieutenant Becker was
with his attorney. John W. Hart, and a notary when they went tr
the home of Harry Pollok, at Riverside Drive and 157th street, to
get an affidavit frcm "Jack" Rose the night following the shooting
Becker remained outside in a taxicab while the two other men
held a two hours' session with Rose. Becker and the taxicab had
; **one when they came out. Richard G Barter. who is connectecl
!with the real estate firm of the Duff & Brown company, of No. 1715
! Amsterdam avenue, was the notary. He told the story of Becker's
ride to the Pollok home with Mr. Hart and himself, and related
most of what occurred during the interview with Rose.
Further evidence was obtained by the District Attorney yes?
terday in corroboration of the story of Rose and his relations to
Lieutenant Becker in the police graft situation. It is understood
the case against Becker is growing stronger every day. The pros
ecuting authorities profess confidence that Becker is bound to
weaken and will make a clean breast of his relations to graft, de
spitc a denial he made yesterday that he had any such idea.
The District Attorney received yesterday a complete list of
the telephone calls from Becker's apartment. in Belleclaire Court. at
Edgecombe avenue and 165th street, to the Pollok apartment, in
the Riviera, during the three days that Rose was the guest of the
Polloks. It showed that there had been five or six calls from Becker
to Rose during that time. This absolutely corroborates an im?
portant point in Rose's story that Becker called him up several
times while he was lying low at Pollok's.
It is understood that the present indictment against Becker
will be superseded by another on Tuesday, when the indictments are
expected from the grand jury against the other men to be charged
with the murder of Rosenthal. The new indictment will b_ a
blanket indictment charging seven men. instead of six, as has beeit
reported. with the crime. The District Attorney feels that it will
strengthen the case against Becker to have him reindicted with
the others. ?- _, ? ?
