Uftnf Ihe term because of its deacrip

terested crowd of apectators who ranie
aariy and Itayed late in the Critninal
Branch of the Supreme Court. There
was not a wu-ant seat in the court
room during the two s?ssions. antl the
halls leading to the tribunal wera fre
uuently oleared by Police Captatn Tier
ney and a large squad of poliremen
from the Ellzabeth etreet etation.

"Gyp" Thought Himtelf Target.
The atones of the three defendants
tallied admirably with the outllne of
the defence as praatnted V charles
G. F. Wahle. their eoaaoel They had
no hand in the killing of Herman R<>
?enthal, they teatifled. They placed the
rcsponslbility of the crime equarely up
to "Brldgle" Weber, Harry Vallon and
a "strange man," whom they all swore
they saw do the actual shooting in
front of the Hotel Metropole In the
early mornlng of July 16L None of
them knew who the man wa? that waa
shot at the tlme. they said. They did
not know the vlctlin was Rosentha!
until the story came out in the newi
papers. The fusillade opened so sud
denly and unexpectedly, "Gyp" the
Blood testifled, that he thought at flrst
Weber, Vallon and the "strange man"
were flrlng at him and hls oompanions.
They ran for the mbway entrance, at
Tlmes Square. and got home aa quickly
as they could to the flat at No. 2729
Seventh avenue, where "Dago" Frank
bad preceded them. Ciroflci had left
them at "Rrldgie" W?ber'g plate, at
42d street and Bixth avenue, when they
were "lured" around to the Metropole
on *he pretext of "Jack" Rose that he
waa going to prove to them that lie
had no part in the "framing" of ' F?ig
Jack" Zelig, their frlend and leader,
who wai arrested on a charge of | ar
rying concealed weapom, and who
faced a fourteen-year sentence on a
aecond offence.
xFe?r of Zelig ?? Motivo.
They had not known Rose and hi?
frienda, Weber, Vallon and Bi heppfl, for
more than three monthB prlor to the
?hootlng of Rosenthal, and their ac
quatntance with these men was
brought about by the anxlety of RMM
to aeiuage the suBpicion whlch Z^Iig's
friende had that he, Roae, was re
HponBible for "Blg Jack's" arrest. In
fact, all their conferencee with Rose
and the others had been over the Zelig
matter. It was the clear inference from
their teatlmony that the fear of ven
geance from Zelig or hia frlendB moved
Rose and Vallon to "lure" the foiir
gunmen to the acene of the shooting
to fasten the crlme upon them.
They had never been ln the gray
?murder rar," in going to or from the
Metropole that nlght. aa Shapiro. the
chauffeur testlfled they had. They all
notlced R-a gray car-atandlng la
front of Webrt"* place when they ar
rlved there in answer to a meBsage
from Roae, they declared. But aome
one el?e rnuat have u?ed it-preoumably
Rcse and hla frlends.
The hardeet taik-that of telllnK the
?tory flrat-was awarded to "Gyp" thi
Blood. In anawer to the question of
Mr. Wahle on dlrect examlnation he
developed the Btory In clear nd de
clslve tones. He proved to be a fllp
pant and sarrastl*- wltness In the hands
of As?i?t?nt Diatrlct Attorney Moss on

that the Itne had been pierced in th?

There is no dlrect confirmation of
