That Enriched Police.
GIVES NEW MURDER DETAILa
Declares He 5aw Accused Lieutenant Near Hotel Not
Long After Shooting?$250,000 Graft Un
covered in Banks?Citzens' Mass Meeting
Promises To Be Big Success.
"Sam" Schepps. wanted in the Rosenthal case, was arrested laat I
night at Hot Springs, Ark., by an agency detectivc.
"Jack" Sullivan, the close friend of Lieutenant Charles Becker.
changed his attitude in the Rosenthal case yesterday. He is now
ready to tell District Attorney Whitman all he knows.
Surrounded by "Bald Jack" Rose. "Bridgie" Weber and Harrv
Valinsky. or Vallon. who have been his companions in the West
Side court prison for the last few days. he is said to have yielded
to their overtures to join their side of the case and make a clean
breast of everything.
Sullivan made a partial "confession" to James E. Smith, As
sistant District Attorney. who had a two-hour talk with him in thf
West Side jail yesterday afternoon. He told enough to Mr. Whit
man's representative to fulfil the expectations of the authorities that
he will make a valuable witness, particularly in regard to the police
Rose's statement that Becker was seen talking with him and
Weber not long after the shooting of Rosenthal was eorroborated
by Sullivan. who said he found Becker in conference with the two
gamblers in front of Weber's place, near 42d street and Sixth ave?
nue. not long after Rosenthal was shot. The three men waved him
away as he started to come up to them. he said. and he stood apart,
so that he did not hear what they were saying.
MORE REVELATIONS TO COME.
Maintaining that he knew nothing of the plans of the murderers,
Sullivan declared he could tell a great deal about his dual friendli
ness with Becker and the gamblers. It is expected, however, that hf*
will be much more explicit when he talks with District Attorney
Whitman, after the latter's return to the city on Monday. Sullivan
is said to have hesitated to go very far in his story until he had
the assurance of Mr. Whitman that he would be taken care of like
the rest of the state's witnesses. He was solicitous. also, lest hi_.
friends consider him a "squealer."
Information reached the District Attomey's office yesterday that
Sullivan had been a collector for gambling houses and certain other
resorts. The informant intimated that the "king of the newsboys"
was employed in a minor capacity by Becker.
The story of how "Jack" Rose came to confess, and the fact
that he has been offered absolute immunity by the District Attorney,
were learned by The Tribune yesterday. Rose technically waived
immunity when he went before the grand jury, and the District
Attorney granted a stipulation on the waiver that Rose would not
be prosecuted if his testimony should materially contribute toward
indictments, and it was not shown that he, Rose. actually fired a
bullet into Rosenthal's body. The stipulation -was approved by
Judge Mulqueen, of General Sessions, as the presiding judge over
the grand jury.
Rose's "confession" was wrung from him in the Tombs after
several days of strong moral suasion brought to bear on him by his
counsel, James M. Sullivan. Rose. like Weber and Valinsky, went
into the Tombs confident that he could "beat" the case with the:
protection offered him by the police. Mr. Sullivan finally convincei
his client that it would be to his (Rose's) own best interest to tell
what he knew. Weber and Valinsky then hurried to get on tho
The trail of Lieutenant Becker's bank deposits led to ten dif-.
ferent banks in this city yesterday. Deposits found in six banku
during the last ftw months in the name of Becker or his wife amount
to about $25,000 oo far.
Collectors for at least two police inspectors and several other
men higher up in the graft scandal are known to the District At?
tomey's office. They will be summoned to appear before the grand1
jury later on. Bank accounts. aggregating nearly $250,000. said o
be money openly deposited by men on the force, have been un
