Lieut. Charles Becker was arretted
last night and held by JudVe Mulqueen
for murder In thc first degreo after
Jack Rose, Becker's collector of gam
bling money, had confessed that th
Police Lieutenant had ordered him to
havo Herman Rosenthal killed. t
The arrest and arraignment of Becker
followed Bwlftly after Rose's confession
and the confessions if Rrldglo Webber
and Hurry Vnllon, who corroborated
Roso In Important particulars.
District Attorney Whitman, question
ing the throe prisoners for four hours
In the afternoon nnd evening, pounded
one against the other until they nil
broke down nnd said Rosenthal was
shot In front of the Metropolj by a
hired gnng because Lieut. Becker
wanted It done.
The Grand Jury acted speedily. With
their confessions warm on their lips,
Rose, Webber and Vullon went befor
the Grand Jury, put their hands on tho
Bible and swore they had told the wholu
truth. Within an hour the former com
mander of thc strong arm squad was
In a cell In the Tombs.
But the men who placed him there
did not dare to leave tho District At
torney's office. Shaking from fear, they
begged tho District Attorney to keep
them for the plght ln his office. And
there they stayed under guard of four
of Mr. Whitman's detectives.
tirrkrr Ordered Mnrder. na Hoar.
Rose's confession, tho most ltal of
thc three, details how Becker six weeks
ago told him that Herman Rosenthal
hud lived too long, that Rosenthal had
to bo put out of the way, and that thn
men who did the Job had nothing to
fear because he, Becker, wus 'a power
In the Police Department. So Roso
went out and spread the word that the
strong arm commander said that
Rosenthal must be killed.
Ho dropped hints here and there. He
did more. He sent for Big Jack Zcllg
and held a conference with thut Rang
leuder of the Knst Silde. Through
Zellg, ranging downward through tho
strata of thugs and hired assassins thn
arrangements were completed.
Thc four men who pistolled Rosenthal
by this arrangement wcro Whltey
Lewis, Lefty Louis, Dago Frank and
Glp the Blood. Rose admits that hn
rounded them up that night and saw
that they were poised for the crime.
It was for this purpose that the gray
car of Llbby and Shapiro was used.
Rose Is not sure, however, that they
escaped In the gray car, but he points
to Becker's promises of protection us o
proof thnt the murderers did go clear
of the police that night.
Phoned Jnat After Murder.
Thc general manager of the killing,
Rose, called Becker up by phono h
few minutes after Rosenthal was dead
on the sidewalk In front of tho Metro
pole. He told Becker It was a horrlbla
thing. He" said It was moro .than he)
He was frightened clear to his heart
and he was nfrald to stir without a
word of confidence from his master.
And Becker snld over tho telephone,
white he was making preparations for
n hurried trip down to tho Tenderloin:'
"Oh, don't worry. I'll protect you.
There won't be much fuss over this."
A few minutes later In the shadows)
of the Murray Hill baths In Forty-second
street. Just west of Sixth nvenue,
Lieut. Becker, calm and collected, and
with perfect confidence In his reassur
ance to the nervous and trembling Rose,
"Don't bo worried about this matter.
I'll see tn It that none of the boys get
For two days after that whispered
conference Lieut. Becker kept In touch
I with Rose, culling him up twice n day
nt Harry Pollok s house and dlscusslnjr
with lilm "matters that had to bo looked
Into." And Becker knew exactly whera
to find Roso when the word went out
from the office of Mayor Gaynor that
llosn had to bo found, or that much,
trouble would meet up with certain po
licemen, so it was not at Far Rock-
away but at Pollok's house that Becker
conveyed to Jack Rose the hint that It
would bo best for dlplomatlo reasons to)
appear ut Pollen Headquarters.
