agalnat cnpltnl punlshment. Of the
fouiteen men aaamlned yesterday none
was found who entertained any
scruples agalnst flndlng n verdlet of
murder in the flrst degree lf the evl
denee should ararrant lt.
Herrllch turned out to be an ex-po
liceman. and declared he hnd formed a
pretty strong oplnion as to the gullt or
bmocanca Of Becker. which he thought
he could lay aslde, however, lf he was
ehoeen to sit in the Jury box. Ha
Joined the police force ln 1SS6. h" sald,
und aerved six years, most of the tlme
ln the Tenderloin statlon. Inspector
Schmittberger was a lleutenant at thnt
statlon then, and he served under Cap
tulns McLaUghlln and Williams, he
sald.
Pleased at Escape from Jury.
Both sides promptly submitted a
chullenge for Implied bias. Mr. Mc?
lntyre examlned the taiesman at great
length, golng over a long list of wit
nesses fof the prooeoutlon- askins* the
taiesman lf he knew any of th am. Half
an hour wns wasted on the nrst tales
inun, for Mr. Whitman Bnally i hai
lenged him pcremptori'v. Herrlich
seemed pleased that he had eocapod
jury duty.
The Distrlct Attorney conflned hls
queatlona to practlcally three prlncipal
heads. He wanted tu know if the taies?
man had ever had any frlendly or other
relations wlth the Police Department,
whether he could render a falr and lm
partlal verdlet despite any oplnion or j
impreselon he entertained, and whether
he was acqualntcd wlth uny one asso
clated wlth the Rosenthal caae *fn the
side of the defence.
Mr. Mdntyre and Mr. Strykci. who
both took a hand in examlnlng tales
men, endeavored to search the con
sclence of the man before them ex
haustlvely. They wanted to know lf
the taiesman had any prejudlces
against a ollceman as such; if ho be
longed to any secret or fraternal or?
der; if he knew Police Inspector
Schmittberger, if ho understood that
an lndlctment was merely an acctisa
tion and did not carry wlth it any pre
sumption of gullt; If he would accept
the law from the court that no convlc
tlon could be obtalned on the uneor
roborated testimony of aceompUcao, et
cetera, tt cetera. Justice Goff ruled
out B good many of the questions
asked by counsel for the defence.
Joaaph P. McEwen. an early taies?
man called, created a laugh in the
eourtroom when he declared that he
was cashier of Woodlawn Cemetery.
Becker broke into a broad smile. Mc?
Ewen sald that he "would try" to go
into the Jury box and dlsregard the
"opinlon" he had formed. He re?
mark, d when asked lf he had ever
served on a Jury before: "I was called,
but not chosen." He was challtnged
peremptorlly by the defence.
Several of the talesmen sald It would
take evldence to remove the oplnion
they entertained as to the gullt or ln
nocence of the defendant. Some of
them frankly admltted that they would
expect Becker to prove hls lnnocence
despite the presumption that the law
afforded the defendant ln that respect
untll he was proved gullty.
Only one taiesman was examlned at
the morning session of court. Harohl
B. Skinner, the foreman, was the tenth
man examlned. Justice Goff held court
untll nearly fl o'clock. Mr. Mclntyre
said afterward that he felt it pecessnry
to examlne each taiesman carefully to
protect his client properly and that he
did not expect to get a Jury before the
end of the week.

OF ZELIG'S HIE
(ontlntied from flrtM p???*.
B plot to kill Zelig was overheard by
Faullna Fuchs, a young woman. who
exposed it to revenge herself on Davld -
son.
Her story. as the Zelig gatiKmen say
she n-lated lt is as follows:
"on Beptember __ I was releaaad
from Rnymond street Jall. where I had
been p.cked up on .omplaint of Mlchael
Welsc, an auctloneer. of N'o. 14 l'i
Btuyraaanl avenue, Hrooklyn. who
charged aaa with ataallng ?*?l.,',N| worth
of Jewelry.
"lmmedlately after tn;' relenso I
went to 'Hed Phll's' house. al No. Ul
"th street. nnd was as]cc|i th-re, aboul
a week ago. when flve men comlng lnto
the house awakened me.
"i beard them say to 'Bad Phil*:
Vou must kill Zellff, nnd the beal place
;o get hltn ls a' tha For.-\ ihe hull. next
Frlday night.' "
Thls story tha flrl told them Ofl Sun
day night. the Zelig gangster* say.
tha knew them well, havlng met some
of them through Davldson
Yesterday, the gnngmen aaM; thev
brought the glrl to see Judge Wahb-,
counsel to Zelig, to have her tell her
story to him.
"We dldn't wnnf t . brlng her to tha
t >ivtri(t A.ttoraey'a eflce,** exptalaed
one of the gunmen, "because lt mlKht
he thought we were framing somethln*
up. Judge Wnhlc was btSBf at thi
Becker trlal, so we dldn't connect wlth
him. The glrl Is safe and we'll have
her at Judge Wahle's 000a to-mor?
row."
The Zellg men say that they have the
names of the flve members of the Sl
rocco gang who, the glrl alleges, called
on Davldson und ordcred hlm to Kill
Zellg The f-angmen's story, however,
does not make plaln the ren**on why
Zellg's death was decreed.
The Zelig aiid the Slroc.o gangs had
sevcral street Kiin flghts last summer.
ln one of them b0*_-6 Tortl, a Slioceo
ftangster, shot Zellg behlnd the ear as
he was leavlng the Crlmlnal Courts
Building.
The lawyer who had been retalned
by the slain gangman, ex-JudKi
Charles G F. Wahle, has made a per?
sonal investlgatlon of the Zelig mur?
der. He sald yesterday that some of
the facts of the case indleated that not
only wa.s Davldson hired to kill Zellg,
but that he lald hls plans for the mur?
der on hls return to the clty from
Peeksklll on Thursday.
Thursday Night Vital.
"It would be Interest ing to know
whom Davldson naw after he arrlved
here," said Judge Wahle last night.
"If we knew we probably could lay our
hands on the Instigators of the mur?
der.
"The story he tells was all carefully
gone over by himself and hls friends,
for he went to the Forsythe Club bnll
Frlday night, walked up to Zellg and
foreed $1N upon hlm, playing off that
he was intoxli*nted.
"The following day he went to Sle
gal's cafe, on Second avenue, and,
walklng up to Zelig as h" wns playing
cards or wrltlng a letter?I am not sure
which?loudly demanded the return of
hls money. Zelig drove him away.
"He foreed Zellg into a quarrel be?
fore the afternoon was over, and was
apparently satlslled when BtUg linally
rose from his chair and struek him h*i
the face, blacking hla eye. Thl3 was
about fi o'clock Saturday afternoon.
"Davldson left the cafe and returned
an hour or so later and hung around
outslde. One of Zellg's friends?I do
not know hls real name, hut he goes
under the name of 'The Candy Kid'?
walked up to Davidson and asked hlm
what he wns dolng hnnglng around the
Oaft, Davidson replled that he had aa
much rlght as he did to hang around,
but lf 'The Candy Kid' desired he
would go away. Hc went.
"Hls next appearance was some tlme
around 8 o'clock, about half an hour
before the murder. He went In and
shook hands wlth Zellg, saylng he
wanted to be friends wlth him. Then
he left the caf-> and.remained on the
sldewalk untll Zelig came out, shortly
after.
Last Letter to "Gyp."
"A6 Zellg left the caf? he handed a
letter to one of hls friends to mall.
This was addresscd to Harry Horowltr,
better known ns 'Gyp' the Blood, who
recolved lt only thls mnrning.
"I have learned from several inter
vlews v.lth friends of Zelig yesterday
nnrf to-day that Davidson's story that
he run two blocks to catch the car
wns false. The tt* t -I bo got tn right
after Zelig.
' The best proof tbat tbe murder was
j.remeditated, and not tbe sudden act
of an impulsive man, is thnt Davidson
Ald not shoot Zelig right away, but
walted until the car reached the break
in the clrcult, Just a few feet south of
Uth street, when tho lights in the car
went out."
Judge Wahle drclnred that personally
he had hls own opinion why Zelig was
killed, but that aa a lawyer he met
with a blank wall when lt came to a
qui-tlOll of motlve.
He sald that the $*.on which Zelig
had in hls pocket when be left the
COtfee house, hut whlch dl.snpreared on
or nbout the tlme of the shooting, liad
presumnbly been taken by one of the
pi.kpockets that InfeHt the neighbor
hood. ?ell_ hnd received the money
fifteen mlnutes before the murder from
a business man nf the nelghhorhood,
Judire Wahle sald, but he refused to say
who the man was, as his name would
not aid the case in any way.
Rumor of "Floater" Contract.
In the gosslp of the Kast Side, how?
ever, it was sald that the man who
gave the money to Zelig was a lieuten?
ant of a Tammany politiclan. and that
the cash was the lnltlal payment on a
contract tr. colonlze ' floaters" for the
romlng electlon.
Davidson's wlfe fisited him at the
Tombs yesterdav. They had a long,
aabdoed talk in Yiddiah. their rotoaa
at no tlme being raised above a whls
per.
Davidson dld not seem to be worrled
over hls plight. He has not even both

Davidaon has telagiaphed him to come

"My husband seems perfectly con
tent with hls condltlon," said Mrs. Da?
vldson. "He says he does not care
what hnppens to him. And whenever I
ask hlm why he did this terrible
thing nnd brought me into all thls
trouble, he always replles: 'I had to
kill Zelig, because he beat me and made
me angry.'
'I thlnk," went on Mrs. Davldson,
with a .shrug of her ahoulders, "that he
had been drinklng, and when'he wae
beaten nnd robbed he got crazy and
killed blm. But he did lt himself, alone.
N'o one put hlm up to do lt."
Jacob Sandler, who conducts the
Odessa Tea Rooms, at No. 289 Broome
street, repented last nigbt that he did
not?as the r.risoner declared?lend
Davldson $10 with whlch to buy the re?
volver, formerly the property of Pat?
roiman Christopher Maher, that killed
Zelig.
"Davidson lies," sald Sandler. "I
have an alibl to show that I could not
li.iv. lent it to him. A pollceman on
thls beat can prove lt. He saw David?
son run in here, all exclted, at half
|iast. 7 Saturday night, when he says
he got $10 from me, and he saw hlm
iock around the tea room and, seeing
no one there, run out agaln. I don't
know the pollceman's name, but Max
Herninn, my walter here, can also
irove i*. Davldson ls a liar."
If Davldson did not get the money
from Sandler. the question arlses,
VVbere did he get the revolver? He
mttl he bought It in a Jersey Clty

ton CaaMtery yesterday afternoon.
Ml were lOUd ln their prnise of Zellg
nnd were at a loss for words strong
enough to express their condemnatlon
of his slayer. Thousands watched the
funeral procession as it passed
through the East Side from the home
of Zellg, at No. 2&\ Broome street.
Many of Zelig"8 friends accompanied
the body to the grave, wearing crape
and carrylng revolvers, as they feared
an attack from some of the Slrocco
gang.
Others less respectful of Zellg's
memory mingled wlth the crowd of
mourners and robbed them of their
purses, 8tickplns and watches. Thlrty
detectives under Captain Harry Foy, of
the Central Offlce, trled to stop tho
work of the "dipe," but the latter were
too qulck for them.
The police, who wejre on duty around
the house to the number of flfty, said
that they never saw so many pick
pockets, gangmen and all around crlml
nals at any gathering before as attend
ed the funeral.
"Sam" Paul and 150 members of hls
club, of whlch Zellg waa a member,
pald their last respects to the gang
leader by going to the grave ln car
riages. The funeral waa picturesque,

the body passed through the streets.
Bernard Sandler, counsel to "Sam"
Schepps, told yesterday of a meeting
ho had with Zelig on Wedncsday in a
Franklln street restaurant. Zelig. hc
sald, wanted him to take a message to
Schtfpps, but the lawyer refueed. He
would not say what the mesaago was.
Distrlct Attorney Whitman sald that
Ihe death of Zellg meant that Patrol?
men Stelnert and White, members of
Becker's strong arm squad, would go
free on the perjury charge brought as
the result of Zellg's testimony.
'Hut we are not through wlth that
