II K Itl.AMKS HIS Nl'PKltlOK
Declares Charge dAlTaircs lias
Meen Against Him Since
the Two Quarrelled.
Wasih.nuion, July 23. The Depuit
ment of Commerce and Labor has de
cided to deport Hplrp Ladlcos. the for
mer attache of the Greek Legation
The Hf.v told in these despatches this
morning how proceedings had been
begun against Ladlcos on the ground
that he was an "assisted alien": that
his expenses In "reaching this country
had been paid by a young Frenchman.
Ladlcos served ns honorary attache of
the Greek Legation until about flv
months ago, when L. !.. Caftnnzoglu,
tlie Charge d'Affnlres, received word
from his home Government, as he as
serts, that the popular young attache
was n deserter from the Greek army
and was accused of other offences.
Mr. Ladlcos did not hesitate to-night
to charge that the deportation proceed
ings against him were begun nt the In
stance of the Greek Charge d'Affalres.
Ladlcos udded thut he Is the victim of
The former .attache Is 29 years old,
slim, smooth shaven ond of more ' de
cided Hellenic cast of features than Is
seen In the average Greek who comes
to tho United States. He declared to
night that Caftanzoglu's enmity wus
Incurred through disagreements be
tween them after bo had. begun his
duties at the legation.
Ladlcos contends thut he was to re
ceive a salary fer clerical work at the
legation, but that after four months
had elapsed n-hen ho" naked for his
money ho was Informed that he was
an "honorary attache." The dispute
over the salary, according to the young
diplomat, was what first led to the
break between htm and tho charge.
A lark, in which the charge's auto
mobile figured, also wan the cause of
friction between the two. Ladlcos,
however. Is the one who describes this
Incident as a "lark." Caftanzoglu, it
wns learned to-day, had him arrested
along with one or two others on tho
charge of having taken the automo
bile. Ladlcos, however, was cleared of
this charge tn the Washington police
Indices declared to-night that his ac
quittal Jnfurlated Caftanzoglu to such
an extent that he went to Atotrney
Gcncra! Wlckershum nnd demanded
that Ladlcos be retried and punished.
It has boon snld that If Ladlcos Is sent
back to Greece proceedings will be In
stituted against him there. In reply
to this statement the young man said
"I am not ufrnld to go back to Greece,

The editor of un Italian newspaper said
yesterday that Ladieos was in this city

was made known that Italian anarchists
in this city suspected that Ladicos was an
agent of tho Italian Government and that
he simulated nnarchistio enthusiasm for
a purpose not friendly to the real adher

Whitman Kxpccts Four Others
to Come Forward Kaeh
The widow of Herman Rosenthal told
the Grand Jury yesterday that every
word In her husband's affidavit against
Lieut. Becker was true. Hysterical and
haunted by the fear that she herseir
would be murdered. Mrs. Kuthenthal, In
Intervals of weeping, described Intimate
relations between the gambler and the
lieutenant of police.
She sold that Becker received 20 per
cent, of the profits of Herman Rosen
thal's gambling house until Bald Jack
Hose, Becker's coltector, became too
greedy, and Insisted on a rakeoff him
self. Then, said Mrs. Rosenthal, her
liusband was forced to get rid ot Becker,
ulthough he never believed that Becker
would Interfere with the business.
And then sho told about the raid.
She said that Docker, an old iilcnd of
hers and Herman's, came to the gam
bling house apologetically and with his
! hat In his hand. Ho was sorry, ho said.
clear down to the ground, but Waldo
had ordered him to get Rosenthal, and
the Job had to be done.
Becker knew It wan hard on Her
man, the vyMoiv went on, but he wanted
to do the right thing, and so he told
Mrs. Iloscn'.hal tbat Herman could for
get the $1,500, and that the mortgage
would be cancelled.

A few hours after Mrs. Rosenthal left
tho Grand Jury room Harry allon,
who gave hlmtelf up early yesterday
morning, was under tho tiro of District
Attorney Whitman's questions. Ready
with an alibi, llko all ot the other fig
ures in the murder caso, Vullon insisted
that he had had no hand in the killing,
and that he did not know a single mini
who fired a shot.
But he did admit that he had been
around with Jack Rose that night o-.i
Lieut. Becker's business, nnd that with
i Sam Schcppn ho had accompanied .luck
Rose to tho houbo of Dot a Gilbert,
' Rosenthal's divorced wife.
In this house. It appears, many people
had gathered for n pleasant evening
Vallnn saw at lenst a dozen having
drinks at somebody's expense. Ho him
self got drunk nnd left Rose and
Sehepps nt Brldgie Webber's some time
after 1 o'clock on Tuesday rnornlni.
Fuddled and dazed ho stumbled Into
the sutrway and went to rail on Mr. and
Mrs. Hnrry Signal at 22C Kast Four
The story told by the mild mannered,
gentle spoken gambler, whose appear
ance Is very different from that of the
Fquare Jon led heavy shouldered men
with whom he associated, will lead, the
District Attorney believes, to a break
down on the part of the other men

I wanted for direct participation In tlu
murder to come to Police Hradquartors

Jack Rose, who hired the gray car.
has been ndvlucd for his own good to

most Interesting and significant feature
of tho day. She arrive-d at the Criminal

Mrs. Rosenthal was in deep mournlng
and her face was heavily veiled, it
could be seen that she was still suffer

murder. As she was taken to the Dis
trict Attorney's office she held a hand
kerchief to her eyes. TKo tears wcr
plain on her cheeks.
She was very nervous. A doui
slammed as distinctly as a pistol bhol.
Mrs. Rosenthal started up from her
chair. At times when she raised a hand
to her face It was seen that she war
Before she was called Into the Grand
Jury room she told a relative what she
Intended to say. There was no doubt
that her story beforo the Grand Jury
tallied pteclsely with what she said be
