? mply sufflolent and c-onvlnclng to cre
ate a reasonable doubt in the minds of
the jurors. In that event his clients
WOttld be acquitted.
The four defendants were l.ighly

demeanor lodlcatad that they already

quartat Whea he sald:
"Wo feel oll rifcht now. but we will

It was polnted out by Mr. Moss that
a peculiar sltuation would ariae lf the
jury should convlct "Lefty" Loule,
"V. hltoy" Lewis and "Gyp" the Blood
and acquit "Dago" Frank on the

It ls understood that some of the

ii aqoad of deputy sherlffs on hand and
ilistribute his men about the courtroom
to asslst the regular court offlcers to

offer may be accepted by Justlce Goff,
lt was said.
In exrressing a hopeful opinion on
the outoomo of the case for the de?
fence, Mr. Wahle attached much im
I'ortance to the testimony of Harry
Vallon on rebuttal yesterday. On
cross-examination by counsel for the
defence Vallon admltted he waa ln
West 13d street, ln front of the F.lks'
Club, when he heard the shots. Mr.
Wahle asked Vallon if he saw the gray
ln which the murdcrera are sup
i .I to have escaped pass by, going
east in 4.'ld .street. Vallon sald he dld,
but declared he could not Identlfy any
vt the men he saw in the ear.
"Sam" Bobaaaai Jolned Vallon in 43d
Btreet a few minutes afterward,
Bcheppa t?stirled, and they went from
there to Vallon's room, ln East 14th
?traat It was polifted out that this
testimony at leaat phtced two of the
iour men wl.om the defence contended
were dlreotly responslble for the shoot
ing at or near the seene of the erime.
? Why dldn't Vallon. if he aaw the
gray ear pass the Elks' Club, aa he says
he dld, want to identlfy any one ln
lt?' asked Mr. Wahle. ln referrlng to
Vallon's testimony. "He dldn't want
t<>. but if tltaaa defendants had hecjn in
Jt, it ls more than Ilkely he would have
eeer the men, lsn't lt?"
Four lnform*ra in Rebuttal.
The four informera for the atate,
1 > . Vallon, Weber and Rchepps. were
ill callad to testlfy in rebuttal yester?
day for the purpose of denying that
any of them had taken ;>art ln tho
efl-lual abootlng of Rosenthal, or liad
present when the shootlng oc
<? irred. The proaeeatlon was forcad to i
Ball them because of the atoriea of |

At this point Mr. Moss had the wltness,
Mrs. Kydd, brojght into the rourtroom
and Weber identlfied her aa a woman
whom he had sten at the Wisc Slde ro:jrt
prison. We said ho had tajked with h?>r
at that t!me and she told him abe had
come there for tha purpdse of Identify
I lng Rose, Vailon and himself.
"LMd she ldentlfy you?" asked Mr. M"bb
"No," aald Weber, with a fatnt smlle.
On rross-examinatlon Mr. Wahle got
Weber to admlt again that he had been a
gambler most of his life. and had run
an oplum "Jolnt" In Chlnatown. resldes

Referrlng to the tlme when the gunm*n
left his place on the night of the murder,
Mr. Wahle aaked:
"Am I correct wher. I say that after
your announcement you aay the four
defendants went out nnd with them went
some one else you dldn't know?"
"Yes, slr," Weber r*pll*d.
Weber's referenee to the unknown man
acrompanylng the defendantB from his
place was evldently consldered sljrnlflrant
by th* defence. The three defendants who
testifled they were at the Bcene of th*
murder told of belnx taken there by
"stranjre man." They also testifled that
the "stranae man," Weber and Valh
were the three men whom they suw doing
Weber said he walked to ?d *treet and
Broadway after the gunmen left his plare
and stood there about flfteen mlnutes.
Whlle there he waa told that Herman
Rosenthal had been shot and kllled. he
said. Re admltted to Mr. V.'ahle that he

slon*r Dougherty after his arrcst thai he
knew nothlng about the murder.
"Mr. Weber, were you tnfortned that
these defendants testifled that they saw
you flre a revolver in front of the Metro?
pole on the mornlng of July I6th?" asked
"I read It In the newspaper*." Weber
Harry Vallon?Valinsky was his rijrht
name, he aald?testifled after Webei. JI*
denled all the pointa in the gunmen's sto

done. Referrlng to Vallon'*. jresence ln
