a former m^mbw of the N'ew Tork
police Department, who waa known aa
t bitter enemy of "Big Jack" Zelig and
knew 'Red Phil" Davidaon. according
to The Tribune's Informant, will be ln
terro*ated by Robert Minton. A?-sistant

?tnllkely that he waa acqualnted wlth
th? ?laver of Zellg. who also worked
tn dives. among them "Jack" Slrocco's.
?Perhnps these two men met tn one
of thejw resorts," eaid this man, "and
lt U not at all improbable that the two
became good frlenda. And from what
Tve heard. thla ex-pollceman had an

No one, exceptlng the police, who say
thgy are convlnced ln the bellef, credit
tor a moment the story told by Davld
?oa that he was alone in the crime and
shot Zellg because of a personal grudge.
None holds more tenaciously to the
theory that Davldson was a hired as
sassin than former Magistrate Wahle,
who was counsel to Zelig in hts fight
against the alleged attempt to rallroad
hlm to prlson by two members of lleu?
tenant Becker's "strong arm" squad.
Detectives Steinert and White.
Judge Wahle pointed out soveral
circumstan-es that indleated that
Davidson was but the tool of others.
The flrst was that Davidaon had picked
the flght with Zellg deliberately.
lt is eonsiilered stranjte by all who
knew Davidaon, who ha?i nanrer _how*n

homiclde was the vlslt rnade to Sie
a-l'a at 6:30 Saturday night. three hours
after Zellg had beaten hlm. Davidson
walked up to Zellg's table and patron
taiugly aald to the gang leader, "Let's

Zellg, wlthout looklng up at David?
