before the flrst ej-e wltness, Ktaute,

the West 47th atreet atatlon, wai the
flrst wltness called. He told of >elng
on flxed post ln the middle of Tlmea
Square, opposlte 43d street, when he
heard the shota?flve ln all, he counted

pole on "a slow run" and found tha
dead man there. He afterward ldsntl
fled the body aa that of Roaenthal. He
dld not aee the men who dld the shoot?
ing, he testlfled.
Patrolman Wllllam J. Flle, who wai
in the restaurant of the Metropole,
where Rosenthal pat before he walced
out to hla death, testlfled as to the ln
cldents surrounding the shooting, aa
he saw them. He knew Roaenthal, and
Identified hls body. He dld not see the
men who did the ahootlng at sumclent
ly short range to ldentlfy them, he aald.
Dr. Dennla Taylor. of Flower Hospl?
tal, who answered the ambulance eall
at 2:06 a. m., dlrectly after the murder,
and Dr. Otto A. Schults. the ooroner's
pbyslclan, who performed the autopsy
on Roaenthal'a body, completed the
witnesses who establlshed the rrlme
Itaelf and the identlty of the vlctlm.
Jacob Hecht, a walter at the Metro?
pole, who was on duty when Roaenthal
was shot, testlfled to seelng the ahoot?
lng, but he did not aee the fares of the
men who ahot the gambler, he aald. He
waa atandlng at the door, and aaw the
fiaahes of the "guns" when the ahoot?
lng occurred. He saw three men ln a
group and. one dlrectly behlnd them, ln
front of Roaenthal, but he didn't get a
good look at thelr facea. He thought
three or four ahote were flred.
Hary Vallon's name was brought Into
cross-exan_lnatlon of Hecht by Mr. Hart,
of oounsel for the defence. He was exam
lning tha wltness about the peraons ha
saw at the acene of the ahootlng and
what onea he had polnted out to hlm
later for the purpose of a poaalble 'dentl
"Dld you have Vallon polnted out to
you at any tlme?" asked Mr. Hart
"No, I dld not." -Aaa the reply.
Krause, small and wlry, wlth dark
polnted features and a manner of self
assurance, took the wltness stand follow?
lng Hecht. He. too, waa a walter, ha
aald, and wae employed at Retsanweber's
restaurant at Coney Island at the tlme
of the Rosenthal murder. He cama Into
Naw Tork that nlght after ha knocked off
work to vlsit Rector's at 44th street and
Broadway, to aaa a walter friend ln r?

going around ln West 43d street, to the
Ueneva Club, a walters" organlzatlon. to
aee about another posltlon, and was on
hls way there when two or three groups
ef men near tha Metropole attracted hls
attentlon and arouaed hls curloelty auffl
clently to lead hlm to llnger ln the lm

ness the ahootlng from a polnt almost
dlrectly across the street.
Asslstant Dlatrlct Attorney Moaa ex?
amlned the wltness for tha prosecution
The testlmony of the wltness was dra
matlc from the start. After gettlng hlm
dlrectly opposlte the Metropole Mr. Moss
asked hlm what he aaw.
"I aaw a man come out of the Metro?
pole," Krause aald
"What dld you sea hlm do?" aaked Mr.
"He gave a sign aa he came out." aatd
tha wltneae. ralalng hls hand to hla fore
head and extendlng his flrst flnger rlgldly
out from hls clenched hand.
Mr. Mclntyre began a long serlea of
objectione to queatlona at thls polnt. Jus?
tice Ooff overruled the objectlon ln the
flrst lnstance, and most of them after?
ward. Juatice Goff had the wltneee stand
up and give the algn Just aa ha aald ha
aaw the man do lt.
The man who slgnalled waa only a few
feet ln front of Rosenthal when the latter
came out of the hotel, Krause sald.
"What happened next?" queried Mr.
"Four men came out from behlnd an
open tourlng car on the south side of the
atreet. walked acroas and started ahootlng
at the man ln front of the one who gave
the slgnal," sald the wltness.
AM Four Had Guna.
The wltness sald he saw rerelvers In the
hands of all four men.
"How many of them flred shots*" waa
the next questlon.
"At least three of them," waa tha reply.
"What dld they do afterward?" Mr.
"They walked back to the car and the
car stnrtfd away toward Slxth avenue,"
"Dld you see Brldgie' Weber or 'Jack*
Sulllvan flre any shots?" Mr. Moss asked.
"No," the wltness replied.
"Did you aee any of the men who flred
the ahota afterward?" asked Mr. Moss.
The wltness told of flrst pteking out
"Whitey" Lewls ln the ooroner- court.
and of Identifylng "Jack" Sulllvan at the
same tlme as the man he saw lean over
Rosenthal dlrectly after the shooting and
turn smlllngly to the others and speak
to them. He sald he was sure that
"Whitey" Lewls, "Lefty" Louls and
"Gyp" the Blood Horowlts had flred
shots, but was not sure that "Dego"
At thls polnt the four gunmen and
Sulllvan were brought Into court, and
Krause plcked them out for Justice Ooff
In the order he had flrst ldentifled them.
Mr. Mclntyre began hls croaa-sxamlna
tlon as soon as the prlsoners had been
taken back to the Tombs. He wanted
to know flrst lf the wltnesa had ever bean
known under any other name. Krauae
emphatically denied that he had ever
uaed any other name. Becker's lawyer
took the witneaa rapldly over the varloua
reatauranta where he had been e/nployed
for the last few years, and ahowed that
ha had not kept a poaltlon ln any one
place for any great length of tlme. The
witneaa sald he had left hls Job at the
Hoffbrau restaurant In Broadway be?
cause he "didn't want to pay anjr graft
money." He aald he had worked at the
Waldorf at two or three dlfferent tlmea.
"Were you ever dlscharged from the
Waldorf?" asked Mr. MoJntyre.
"Oh, yes, twice," replied the wltness.
The wltness sald that he waa dia
charged once from the Waldorf because
he had Insulted a gentlemen guest who
had flrst IriSLlted hlm.
Shared in Walters' Strike.
Krauae freely admitted that he had eaat
ln hla lot wlth the atrlklng waltera at
the Waldorf, but he denied that he -ae
among the strlkers who had started
trouble at the hotel, several of whom
were arrested. He didn't know that Lieu?
tenant Becker had been there when the
trouble started and was lnstrumental ln
arrestlng aome elghty of the strlkers, he
swore, ln anawer to a queatlon before an
objectlon made by the District Attorney
had been sustalned and the questlon ruled
He sald that he went to work at Relseu
weber's after he left the Waldorf the
laat tlme, and he had left the Coney Isl?
and place on aecount of the Rosenthal
shooting and hls connectlon wlth the case.
He was now employed, he sald, at $li a
week by the Soclety for the Prevention
of Crlme ln cllpplng and stamping nc-s
paper artlcles, not about the Rosenthal
case, but about all klnda of atorles. He
didn't know that Asslstant Dlstrtct At?
torney Moss was counsel for the :Joclety,
he sald, and had got the place through
aome one else.
Mr. Moss sald afterward that ft was no
secret that he had recommended Krause
for the place, though the witness didn't
know lt. *"'
"Dld you know a special offlcer st
Relsenweber's by the name of flomy
Shade?" aaked Mr. Mclntyre.
"Yes, he worked there," ssld the wlt?
"Didn't you go to Shade and tell hlm
that you didn't see any one of the mur?
derers who dld the shooting?" asked the
"! dld not." ssld the wltness, almost rls
Ing from hls chalr.
"Didn't Shade tell you to go down to the
District Attorney and 'get a plece of
money' V asked Mr. Mclntyre.
"No, he never dld," replied Krause era
The wltness sald he lived at Bath Beach
alone for the flrst few daya after the
shooting, because he waa afraid after re?
ceiving so many threatenlng lettera. Hls
wlfe and baby lived wlth hls mother-ln

Mr. Mclntyre then took the wltness ln
detail over hls Journey from Coney Island
to West 48d street on the nlght of the
murder. The wltness sald he was not
curleus or anxtous to look at clocks ln
the subway or other places on tha way ln.

lt was. When he got out of the subway

Krause sald he stepped up to the flrst

aald the wltness, "and he aald: 'You bet?

buslness or you wlll get ln trouble.' I
told hlm I had as good right there as he
"Dld you go away?" asked Mr Mcln?
"No, sir." replied Krauae.
The wltness nald he could see the mrn
who dld the shooting plalnly from the
other alde of the street because of the
bright lights In front of the Metropole. He
descrtbed some of the other men ln the
groups ln answer to questlons hy Beck

of any of thelr eyea. but he saw aeveral
facea clearly, he aald. He had never seen
any of them before In hls Ilfe. Asked
what he was dolng there at the time he
said ha waa "Juat watchlng."
Mr. Mclntyre auggeated that tha wlt?
ness had ln mlnd to become the so-called
"Oreat American Identlflar." whlch made
Krauae laugh, aa the court ruled out the
Krauae denied that he waa In Down
lng_ aaloon. at 43d atreet and Seventh
avenue. when the ahootlng occurred and
ran out when he heard the ahots. He aald
he never drank In aaloons.
One of the few telllng polnts whl'-h
counsel for the defence brought out on
croM-examlnatlon of Krauae waa that he
had gone to James M. Sulllvan, who Is
"Bald Jack" Rose'a lawyer, prlor to hls
offerlng hlmself aa a wltness for tb
people. He didn't know that Sulllvan wus
Roae'a counsel at the tlme, he sald, and
had gone to consult hlm on the advlce
of friends because he didn't want to
appear aa a witneaa If he eould help It.
"Didn't you tell Sulllvan that you
would bs a bad witneaa agalnat hls cll?
ent, Roae. and ask hlm for money to get
out'of town?" asked Mr. Mclntyre.
"It's a lle!" shouted the wltness.
"What, do you eall me a Har?" retorted
"No, no," sald Krause qulckly, "I mean
that It Is a He."
Mr. Mclntyre tried to discredit the wlt?
ness by plcking out aome contradlcUons
ln hls testimony ln compertson wlth that
he had glven before the Coroner. The
dlecrepanclee proved to be trivlal and the
witneaa waa not ahaken.
Mr. Mclntyre aak* for an adjournment
on the ground that he waa weary and
exhauated from hls long examlnatlon. but
Justice Goff inslsted that ha proceed If
he had any further queatlona. When the
lawyer aald he could not go on at the
thrte, Juatice Ooff dlacharged the witneaa
and adjemrned court until 10:80 to-day.
TWO NEW WITNESSES TO
CONF1RM STORY OF ROSE
Two brand new wltneaaea against Lieu- Attorney. and examlned for PM*yMam
tenant Charles Becker were whlaked hour* in Mr. Mlntona offlce. Mr.Whlt
acroee the Hudson River yeaterday by man blmaelf left tha Becker trial wlth J.
john M. Mlnton. Jr., an Asslstant Dtstrict I Robert ?uMa, another-^W^oaatatamta.
and apent an hour or more wlth the new
wltneases. "Jack" Rose, the bald poker
player. who says he hlred the gunmen
who ahot Roeenthal at Becker's requeat,
waa ln the room much of the tlme whlle
the two were lnterrogated.
Mr. Whltman came out flnally wlth
broad smlle. He sald only that two new
witnesses had been found, and that one
of them would be called to-day and one
ln rebuttal. From another source it was
learned that the two were Morrla Luban,
of No. 902 Oates avenue, Brooklyn, and
hla brother, Jacob, of No. 361 46th atreet,
Brooklyn. They had been releaaed from
the Newark Jail, where they were awalt
Ing Indlctment on a charge of swlndling
The two Lubans, whlle conflned ln the
Newark Jail, had let drop numerou. hlnta
that they could ald Mr. Whltman ln the
Becker trial. They were frequently vta
Ited In the Jail by two women, and lt '.*
the bellef of the other prlsonera at New?
ark that word was sent to Mr. Whltman
through these women. It was sald yea?
terday that the Lubans had told some
persons In the Jail that they were eye wit?
nesses to the shooting of Rosenthal.
The Luban brothers are sald to have
coached the women carefuJly regardlng
what was to be said to Mr. Whltman or
hls representative. It ts said that the
women were told to Impress upon Mr.
Whltman that the Lubans saw Rosenthal
as he fell to the sldewalk lmmediately
after the ahootlng, and that they were
personally acqualnted wlth some of the
gangmen Impllcated ln the shooting.
It ia reaaonably certuln that at least
one of the brothers told the District At?
torney that he had seen Rosenthal shot.
He is the one who wlll he called to-day.
The other undoubtedly la acqualnted wlth
"Jack" Roae. He, Mr. Whltman aald,
wlll be called In rebuttal.
"Jack" Rose Is also to be called ln re?
buttal. He ls expected to teatlfy that he
hlred the gunmen at the lnstance of
Lieutenant Becker. The faet that one of
the new witnesses ls to be called at the
.-rfme tlme Is taken to lndlcatu that he
may be able to tell something along the

Dlsirlct Attorney Whltman made hls
opening address to the hecker Jury ,
lmmediately after tt had been com?
pleted He dld not hesltate to brand
Rosenthal as a mean gambler and a per
sl.tent lawbreaker, but contended that
the faet waa not materlal to the laaue.
Mr Melutvre and Mr. Mart, of coun-el
for the defence, punciuated the Dlatrlct
Attorney'-. address wlth numeroua objec

galllng wentences In reference to the prls?
oner. who appe_red < on-lderably deject.d
at tlrr.es under the Mre of the prose
cutor'a scathlng attack. Justice (Joff al?
most unlformly overruled the objectlons.
On one objectlon Mr. Mclntyre declared
that the language of the Dlsirlct Attor?
ney was ao unfalr and prejudlclal that a
j nor should be wlthdrawn and a mli
trial announced by the court.
The people'e eaae. as outllned by Mr
Whltman. reelted that at about 12:30a. m
on July 1? Herman Ro-enthal went into
the Hotel Metropole, and on departlng,
about 1:46 a. m., waa ahot and kllled by
Whitey" l^ewla, "Oyp th* Blood" Horo

Mr. Whltman continued:
So far as we csn learn. none of these
four gunmen knew Herman HoBenthal

should tell hlm not to worry, but to truat
hlm, Becker. that he would proteot them
