the swift approach of the assassins.

An to matters that have arisen In
connection with the Rosenthal case
Alderman Currnn, Insisting that there
was no politics In his activities, wrote
to Muyor Gaynor demanding that the
Mayor call a special meeting ot tho
Board of Aldermen for the purpose of
starting an Investigation of psllco al
liance with gamblers. Mr. Currnn
promised also to get out n writ of
mandamus to compel the Mayor to
assemble the Aldermen.
The most Interesting development
from the standpoint of police vnrl; was
finding the witness who observed the
cunning of the murderers aud stood
dazedly by while f ey thrust their re
volvers in Rosenthal's face. Tho story
he tells agrees In tho main with the
sworn statements of Shapiro and Krcse,
the Coney Island waiter.
Ho saw without understanding nt ins
moment what was going forward th
deliberate, efforts of a number of men
to keep Forty-third street cleor of In
truders, Ho noticed that taxlcabs ar

were played out before his eyes.
tils story is moro intense Can iiiat

ran like a rabbit when the pistols
barked and that he hid behind it lamp
