There Is a. stroni belief that the evi
dence will lie In such shape heroic the
(irand Jury adjourns for this week that
three or four Indictments will be re
turned. The Hums detectives have boon
hard at woik on this phase of the ltn
scnthal case. It is said that the Hums
men believe that three men weie aware
of Becker's relations with the Rambler
and that tlio Hums men are polntlni;

In the Police Department.
Deputy Police Commissioner Dough
erty at his home 1 9 Hheepshcad Hay la.st
night had his ear to a telephone wait
Ins for news from the Catskllls that
Louis Rosensr.wcli: ll.efty J.oule) mid
Harry Horowitz (fiyp the lllooil) hail
been caplured. From Inspector lluKhes,
In cliarce of the Central Otllce men
In t lie mountains, word c.iine to Dough
erty that the hunt was still active.
The news from Tannersllle, fSreene
county, around which the New York de.
lectlves and deputy sheriffs have, been
operating, was that the two men ac
cused of the murder of Herman Hosen
thai had slipped through the police lines
and that 'he hunt was over so far ns
the Catskllls were concerned.
4 Ituar or llnnKhiTl',
One or the Central ( itUce men, who
appeared under the circumstances to b
extraordlnutlly loquacious, said the de
tectives were withilrnwiim from the
mountains and returning to New York
because they had lnfoimation that I.ofty
liouie aud Gyp the lilood woulil sur
render to-day nt Police Headquarters.
Mr. DoiiRhcrty flatly denied the story.
He said ho was In charge of the hunt
and that he had every reason to believe
Itosenszwoti; and Horowitz weie hiding
in ono of the little villages west o(1he
town of Catskill. He had given no or
ders, he said, for h discontinuance of
the chase. On the contrary, he was con
tinuing by telephone the direction of
the Catskill squad. It woh untrue also,
said the Deputy Commissioner, that the
police had received word that the two
would surrender to-day.
"Maybe somebody Is Interested In cir
culating that story," he added.
Still In I lie Mniiiilnln..
"I am working now on the same
theory that I started on," said Douyh-
rty. "The men wo want were In the
Catskllls recently and I believe they
are now. We think wo have them plrk
eted In a comparatively small district.
I losenszwcls; nnd Horowitz ore running
out of money and they can't conceal
themselves very much longer.
"If any of my men have withdrawn
from Tannersvllle land no such In
formation has come to me) they did It
because their faces were getting too
familiar to the natives. Probably they
had been accurately described to Hosen
szweig and Horowitz. Let us suppose
1 hat It was desirable to station around
Tannersvllle new men who have not
become known to the natives. Inspec
tor Hughes may have taken this step.
If he did it was prohably a wlso move."
The rpport from Tannersvillo was that
ten Central Office, men had quit that
1 own. leaving two on guard. The ten
that departed took a train that was
going to Kingston. Hut even Tanners
lllo had a notion that perhaps the
withdrawal of the main force whs for
1 he purpose of fooling- the fugitives
Into the belief that the hunt was over.
"It would have been a sensible trick,"
s.ild Dougherty last night. "There Is
no doubt that Hoscnszwelg and Horo
witz havo been hiding closely ever
since Lofty Louie was caught. I wish
we could get word to them that we had
given up the chase."

told his lawyer yesterday that he was
nfrald he would be shot going to or

asked Lawyer KuIIImiu to appear for
him before the Cormier and to ngreo to

"itose is ns naiiiy seared, said Mr.
Sullivan, "as he was the night he con

Mr. Sullivan said that l!n.e was nntrrv
about u story which appeared yesterday
nnd which gave n description of his
dealings with Lieut. Becker. Hose had
written a letter to Mr. Sullivan and he
handed It to the lawyer when Mr. Sul
livan visited Mini lust evening nt the
West Side Court prison. The letter read.

that he has been i.ifeieil n mni,

Itecker demanded thai 1 have ltn..n,i,ni

times, but because I lacked tin. mn
or because something turned up It
wasn't accomplished. Arid every time I
reported a failure to Becker he cursed
me and threatened to have mp sent 1.,
"I tell you Becker will rnnrnu hi.n.

he's a coward. On the surfneo lm

partment as. If they were his Inferiors.
Ho had a contempt for his police as
sociates. " 'They've all got ttt stand around for
me.' he said tn me more than once."
Ilerkrr Ordered Surrender.
Mr. Sullivan asked Hose about de
tails of his relations with Becker after
the murder of Hosenthal. Hose tnlkcd,
his lawyer said, with apparent frank
ness. "Becker called me up at Harry Pol-
lok's house on the Wednesday night
after the murder." said Hnso. "He
ordered tne to go down to Pollco Head
quarters and give myself up, He told
mo that I wouldn't be detained at Head
quarters, that they would merely ask
me n few questions about tho hiring
of the Llbby-Shnplro automobile and
that then I would he turned Ioobc. He
didn't say anything to mo about get
ting 11 lawyer.
"On the wny down I got to thinking
things over and I dpclded that I had
better get a lawyer for myself. I
thought of you. After I had been told
in Commissioner Waldo's otllco at Head
quarters that the Cnmmlsslnnvr wasn't
In I went out and telephoned to you.
After we hnd talked 1 went back to
Headquarters again and gvo mvself
niprrfeil Pleiily of Money.
Mr. Sullivan explained here that when
Hose called up to retain him Hose
"You needn't worry about where your
retaining fco Is coming from I'w, got
plenty of money back of rne. , man
has been sent out already to collect
money for my defence."
Mr. Sullivan saw Hose again after his
client had been held for murder and
had been locked up In the Tombs.
"Hoso repeated that there would be
plenty of money to pay for hlH du-
fence," said tho lawyer. "Ho asked mo
to get tho best man 1 could find to
take charge of Ills case. Ho said ho
wanted n good big lawyer. 1 went to
.New Haven Immediately nnd consulted
with Jacob (iiiodhart, one of the best
known lawyers In New lluglaud. Mr.
(io'xlhnrl put his retaining fe pretty
high, but I didn't bulk, because I had

would be no lack of money. Mr. flood

llltu It was understood thai hu wav
to take part In tho case, although no
definite nrrongement hnd been made.
"When I returned to New York mat
ters hnd taken on another complexion
entirely. Jt was evident thnt Hose
had been deserted by Becker nnd that
there would be little money for his de
fence. Convinced thnt Hose was telling
the truth about Becker having ordered
the murder, 1 decided to tell the Dis
trict Attorney the facts in the case.
I did not want to tell him In the
presence of the police. On the Thursday
afternoon after Hose gave himself tip
I was In Mr. Whitman's office with
Deputy Commissioner Dougherty nntl
Inspector Hughes. The three officials
urged me to persuade Hose to confess.
I would make no promises. Leaving
the District Attorney's otllce, Inspector
Hughes suggested thnt If Hoso con
fessed It would be only right for him
to make the confession to the police.
"I If ft Hughes, turned around nnd
went back to District Attorney Whit
man's office, entering through ft prlvute
door. Then 1 put myself nt .Mr. Whit
man's disposal nnd the result was the
confession Implicating Becker."
Hoso toltl Lawyer Sullivan yesterday
that Lieut. Becker Instructed lilm to nsk
Assemblyman Ijovy to represent Llbby
mid Shapiro. Mr. Levy, however. In
sists that Lieut. Becker had nothing to
do with his being retained for the drtv
ers nf the gray car.
Ilreker'a fllBnal rode.
Hose talked also about the signals
used b' callers til Harry Pollok's house.
He said It was true that private signals
wero used by people who culled there,
to see htm, nnd that the code had been
arr.ingtd by Becker.
Sam Schepps, Hose told his lawyer,
wa's present when the affidavit denying
Hosenl hal's accusations against Becker
was secured. Schepps, said Hose, sug
gested thnt It would be n good thing
lor Hone to sign the affidavit.
"Hose told me." said Mr. Sullivan,
"that he has been receiving many
threatening letters and post cards. Yes
terday n picture postcard, ostmarkeit
Osslnlng, rather Interested him. it
bore the picture of a row .of cells In Sing
Slug, on tli" back of the card was
"Mntk: If you come Into one of these
It doesn't mean the electtlc rhalr. but
It means death Just the same.'"
llrldgle Webber, who appears to take
Imprisonment more lightly thnn Hose,
had something to say yesterday about
Ihe threat of fleorge Consldlne of the
Hotel Melropole to sue him for slander
ing the good name of thai sporting
"They'e got lo show me the receipts j .
before nnd after the murder before I
believe Pie hurt the hotel any," s.ild
Webber. "They tell me Consldlne hai

The npiitarntice of Lieut. Becker In

that he would meet Mr. Whitman In

sure their quarry was within. There
was no sign nf them throughout the day
and the Impression Is that the hunted

cordon In some manner.
Though there Is some question In New

the purpose of securlni; evidence against
