Whli.- Dlatrlct Attorney Whitman re
fused to romment upon tho Indlctmenta
ln any way. or even to admit that such
indlctmenta hnd been found, it was evi
dent thnt he fell satistied at Um break
in tha "ayatem'B" line of defence.

pointed out that it was only by the
lndlotmeiit of the lnternndiarles in the
Roeenthal morder that the District At?
torney araa ahta lo get back t.> iiecker.
In the B8?ne way the indletments
found reeterday, though invoiving only
..ne polieeman and tWO gO-betWOena in
the ByatenVa graft collection army, aill
lead to men of more Importance ln the

Close to Inapectora.
Bkelly*a Indletmant was belng eom
mented upon In pollca clrclea last nlght
a.s oi far greater *dgaiflcance to tho
grafters in the Pollce Department t ian |
that nf Becker last sumnier. The j
"strong arm" lieutenant araa known to
havo played a lone hand, strictly for
his own benefit. and although he could
undoubtedly tell many BtOrtOB Of graft
Ing by his fellow offkers in the depart?
ment. the general opinlon in poliee cir
eles was that he would play in peril
as he had in his days of atfluence?a
one-man game.
How true that judgment of Becker
by his fellow poliee ofhVers was ls Indi
1 ated by every move that Becker made
in his flght for Itfc. It was Becker's
representative and not District Attor?
ney Whitman who shut out from
Becker's trlal all posslble referenee to
graft on the force, whether directly
eonneeted wlth Becker or not.
The case of Skelly, howeve., offers a
different problem to the defendant. It
is known now that Mr. Whitman has
evidence In his possession whlch will
satisfy any Jury. grand or petlt. that
Skelly did not retaln all or even the
