derer Jump from the running board and
ace toward Flrnt avenue.
As Davidson ran the crowds In the
street at first krvp nlm lota of leeway
M they caw that ho was still waving
hU revolver as he ran, Policeman
Schmidt outdistanced Patrolman Knox,
both of the policemen giving chase the
moment they saw tho murderer start
Tn front of 331 Kant Fourteenth
street, between First and Second ave
nues, Schmidt began to close In on Da
vidson. The policeman, knowing that
Davidson had fired only one shot and
that therefore he probably still had
four good cartridges In the revolver,
drew his own revolver and yelled to the
murderer that he would fire If David
son made a move toward him with his
"Get away!" yelled Davidson, aa he
backed against a building waving his
gun. "or I'll shoot you In the belly."
Schmidt lunged at Davidson and
bowled him over while tho murderer
was making tho threat. And as Police
man Knox ran up then Davidson yelled
that he would offer no further resist
ance and the policemen hurried the man
back to the corner of Fourteenth Btreet
and Second avenue with a great crowd
Jamming along In their wake.
GatiK Man Hying on Curb.
Schmidt and Kox pulled Davidson Into
the drug store and slammed the door.s
on the mob that would have pressed Its
way In. Schmidt Immediately tele
phoned for reserves and on ambulance
and In a very short time, Dr. Hawkins
arrived In a Hellevuo ambulance and re
rerves came from tho Kast Twenty
second street and Fifth street
tationa to handle the crowds that
Jammed about tho curb where the dying
gang man had been placed.
Davidson was taken In a patrol wagon
to the Knst Twenty-second street sta
tion house, and when the desk learned
that the shooting had occurred In tho
Fifth street precinct Davidson was
taken to the Fifth street station and
still later to Headquarters.
The man had scarcely finished telling
his story of being robbed during the
afternoon by Zcllg and shooting him In
revenge for tho robbery and the beat
ing, when the police heard another ver
sion of the probable cause of the shoot
ing Qaarrrl In a Rrstaarant.
According to theso new witnesses,
Zetlg about 7 o'clock last night the
shooting happened about 8:30 o'clock
got Into a row Ui a restaurant at either
74 or 76 Second avenue and had beaten
a man there so that the man was
bruised In a way that resembled the
bruises which tha prisoner displayed
ltst night as proof that Zellg; bad
beaten and robbed him.
The man beaten by Zcllg, acce-rdlng
to the second story, left the restaurant
threatening vengeance on Zellg. Not
long after this, so the poltco heard from
friends of Zellg, a telephone message
cama to the restaurant for Zellg.
Zcllg after talking at the restaurant
telephone announced that some one bad
Just asked him to go to Fourteenth
street and Second avenue on "a business
Zellg, his friends told the police, left
the restaurant at oncu and Jumped on a
car that took him up to tho corner
where he was murdered. Also, say the
Informants, a man who had seen Zellg
leave tho restaurant followed him and
Jumped on a car running north less than
a block behind the car Zellg had taken.
The supposition of these friends of Zellg
Is that the gang leader was murdered
not because he had robbed Davidson
during the afternoon but that Davdlscm
was the man Zellg' had thumped In the
face In tho Second avenue restaurant at
7 o'clock last night and that the shoot
ing therefore merely was a "come back"
by Davidson for this heating.
Kettprr Find Four I,ettere
A keeper searching the dead man's
clothes at the Morgue found In a coat
pocket four letters written In pencil on
cheap white paper and badly blood
They were not In envelopes. Three
of tHcm are dated from the Tombs. The
signatures are "Frank Clrotlcl," "Lefty
Louie," "Harry" and "Whltey." As
soon us word of this discovery reached
the Kast Twenty-second Btreet police
station a uniformed policeman was sent
to the Morgue. He demanded the letters
from the keeper and said that ultimately
they would go to tho District Attorney's
office. The keeper gave the policeman

Davidson Talks rreal.
Davidson, both at the Rant Twontv.

at the Fifth street station, before being
taken down tn Hf1ntinrtjtr.i tn Kn

ana ny acting inspector Faurot, head
of the Detective Hureun. tnlksri rK.
with reporters and the police about the
auegeu roooery ana Blackjacking of the
afternoon. While he was telling of be
ing robbed In the afternoon the nritlno
also were hearing the story of the fight
in me Hecona avenue restaurant.
When the address of the restaurant
74 or 76 Second avenue was men
tinned last night the police Immediately
commented urjon the tart that ii
a resaurant ut 76 Second avenue where
Zellg on May 12 last, was arrested by
uetectives Htelnert nnd White of
Uecker's at ronn firm ftniiHrl nn a rli.iri'n
of being Implicated In a holdup of a
mxm street man. it was when Zellg
was taken from this Second avenue res
taurant to the Fifth street station house
last May that the two detectives swore
they found a revolver In Zellg's coat
Docket, testlrnonv for n-hlrh U'hii. an,.
Stelnert have since been Indicted for
perjury on zellg's charge that he had
had no revolver In his nockei nmi that
thw two detectives had "framed him up."
At the Last Twentv.MemnH .iri
station house, where Dnvlri snn ArNt waa
liken, he gave hla name aa Philip David
son ami saia nn is a ltusslan Hebrew
and came to America twelve years ago.
Hp Kave his address as 111 Hvnti,
street und his business as a fruit dealer.
Mill later at Police Headquarters the
murderer said that he has no occupa
tion and that he has been In New York
city only for the last live days.
Camp From Prekaklll.
"My home Is at Peeksklll," said David
son at Headquarters while the police
were awaiting there tho arrival of act
lug Inspector Faurot nnd of District At
torney Whitman, whose arrival at Head
quarters was delayed owing to the fact
that he and Mrs. Whitman had left
their apartments In Kast Twenty-sixth
street Just before the homicide bureau
sent word of the murder.
"I came here from Peeksklll five duys
ago," Davidson continued, "and I hadn't
any occupation hero. This afternoon I
wns going along Hroome street near
Kldrldge street when the mn I shot
to-night said, "Hello, 'and atenped in.
He asked me to come Into a doorway
because ho said he had something pri

and right away he pulled a Mackjack
out nf his pocket and said: 'Ql-'i' me thu

but ho hit meR lot of times on the face

away from mo and left me lying In the
"When I wns able to get up 1 reached
In my pockets and felt a $10 bill that
T guess he didn't know I had. That was
all the money he left me. I felt so sore
t about being robbed and beaten that I
went right over to Jersey City and
bought the revolver and came back to
the East Side ready to shoot him as soon
as I saw him. And when t saw him
sitting on the open car I chased the car
for more than a block, and when I
caught It at Fourteenth street I climbed
on It and shot, him."
While Policemen Schmidt and Knox
and a number of detectives, who had
got to Fourteenth street and Second
avenue a few minutes after the shoot-
Ins;, were taking Davidson to the police
station Dr. Hawkins was getting the
unconscious Zellg Into the hospital am
bulance with all possible speed. Whllo
h was working over Zellg's wound In
the ambulance the gang man died.
Instead of bring taken to tho hos
pital, therefore, the body was Im
mediately placed In the morgue. A very
short time after this was dono a stout,
dark haired girl, who said she was
"Jack's girl," hurried to llellevuc nnd
begged to see Zellg. She cried out when
told that he had died before reaching
the hospital. :"
Girl Said Zellat Had f non.
Shortly after the body had been taken
to the Morgue a young dark haired
woman of Jewish type called at tho
Morgue and said that Zcllg was her
sweetheart and that she had heard he
had Just been killed.
She stated that he had $500 In his
pockets when he was killed nnd said she
wnnted to get It. She was told that no
such sum of money had been found and
she went away.
Shortly after she had left the Morgue
an automobile arrived, nnd from It
stepped a man who said his name was
Elliott. He said that he was an Inti
mate friend of Zellg, and said that he
knew that the dead man hnd $500
when he was killed. He was told hat
only $2 had been found, and he drove
awny. The machine's license number
was 32518 N. Y. This belongs to a
machine owned by M. Stelnhardt
Son. 63 Wtllett street. They did not
answer their telephone last night.
On Zellg's person was also found a
plain card, which read: "Bond Co.,
Lieut. Adams, Greenville, III."
When the news of tho murder reached
Police Headquarters the police Immedl
ately sent for acting Inspector Faurot.
who recently succeeded Inspector
Hughes as head of the Detective
Bureau, and telephoned at once tn Mr.
Whitman's apartments only to learn
that ho had gone out.
When Inspector Faurot reached
Headquarters he was beginning to ques
tion Davidson when word came the
police to hold off on their examination
of the prisoner. District Attorney
Whitman had been located, said the
message, and had sent the order that
the police examination was to be sus
pended Immediately, as Mr. Whitman
wished to conduct the Initial examina
tion of Davidson personally.
Commissioner Dougherty said at 1
o'clock this morning after his long talk
with Davidson that as far as he could
learn Davidson had no criminal record
and had not been an associate of gun
men. The Commissioner said the ball Zellg
attended on Friday night was that of
the Forsythe Association.
It was held, said the Commissioner,
In the rooms of the association at the
Stuyveaant Casino at 14,0 Second ave
nue. In this place, a hangout of gun
fighters, Julie Mnrelle was shot and
killed.1 Zcllg was taken; Into custody
suspected 'of the shooting', but was let
go. Here too Zellg was arrested for
carrying concealed weapons.
Mr. Whitman showed unusual Interest
in last night's shooting because of the
alleged relations between the gang
leader and various persons directly nr
Indirectly connected with the Rosenthal
murder and criminal affairs that grew
out of It. Also Zellg was of particular
Interest on account of his various mix
ups with the Jack Slrroco gang, his
having been shot early In the present
year and the facts that at the time of
his death he was out on $10,000 ball as
a second offender and on a $2,000 bond
for being arrested at Providence, K. I.,
on August 19 last as a pickpocket. He
doubtless would have been called In the
coming Pecker trial and he would have
been the chief witness against Detec
tives Stelnert and White when their
trial for perjury Is called.
Walt for Whitman' Arrival.
When the District Attorney sent word
to Headquarters last night that he
would be there shortly and to suspend
the examination of Davidson pending
Mr. Whitman's arrival, Inspector Faurot
already had been questioning the mur
derer for some time and had learned a
part of his story, Davidson, In telling
Inspector Faurot of attending a ball on
Friday night, bore out a story told to
the reporters toward midnight by Mrs.
Davidson when she came to Headquar
ters on learning that her husband was
a prisoner there.
Mrs. Davidson said that her husband
had come home from the ball at the
Stuyvesant Casino yesterday after mid
night very drunk and that he arose at
7:30 o'clock yesterday morning and left
the house In great excitement. She
heard no more of him again yesterday,
she said last night, until told that ho
had killed Zellg.
She knew nothing of Zellg further
than what she has read In the news
papers from time to time, she Insisted,
and never had heard her husband speak
of the gangster.
Hut during the first few minutes of
Davidson's talk with acting Inspector
Faurot, Davidson told the head of the
Detective Uurcau that at the ball at
Stuyvesant Casino on Friday night he
had run Into Zellg and In the presence
of the gang leader and a crowd of his
followers, Davidson, be said, had
"flashed tho bankroll" ho was carrying
Davidson here again told the story
of being robbed yesterday afternoon In
Hroome street by Zellg and of going
next to Jersey City and buying the
revolver, which bearB the number 4812
and resembles the revolvers curried by
llengel 'ellar for Ills Money.
"When I got back to town," David
son told Inspector Faurot, "I went
searching for the man who had got my
money, and I ran Into lilm a number
of times on Second avenue, Kadi time
I begged him to give me back my
"He laughed at me," Davidson con
firmed, "and wouldn't glvo me liack
the money. When I'd asked him a lot
of times his friends told me I'd better
let him alone or he would do me, He
laughed at me again when I followed
lilm Into u Second avenuu place, and
when I kept at lilm for my money he
hit me In the eye and then he ran
out of the place.
"Then I ran ufter him and 1 caught
the car. I shut him and Jumped off
the car and ran. Hut when I saw the
policeman on mo I gave myself up."
Assistant District Attorney Mlnton
renched Headquarters at 11 o'clock laat
night and District Attorney Whitman
came In a few minutes later. Deputy
Commissioner Dougherty arrived an
The reporters asked Mr. Whitman
whon he , came Into Headquarters
whether or nut the death of Zcllg, In
view of the assumption that ho had
been counted on as a witness for the
prosecution In the Hecker trial, which
begins to-morrow, will delay or seri
ously dlsarrsngn the present plans for
the trial. Mr. Whitman said he wnsn't
prepared to answer tho question then
and he refused to say how Important
a figure Zellg would, have been In the
Two of the many witnesses to the
shooting were taken to the Fast
Twenty-second streot police station
house last night to tell their versions
of the murder. They are Hyman Nal
verth, mentioned above, of 340 Kast
Ninth street, and Alexander Fella of H75
Two boys who saw the actual shoot
ing told their stories to reporters of
Thk Sun. The boys arc Mortimer
Clark, 9 years old, of 249 Kast Four
teenth street, and .Julius Kaufman, 11
years old, of 223 East Fourteenth street.
They agree In all details.
'lWo were playing at Fourteenth
street and Second avenue," they said,
"when we saw the car on which tho
shooting happened coming nlong. Just
before It got to the corner where wo
were the lights went out. At that time
we saw a man standing on the running
board. Then the lights went out and we
heard a shot.
"The lights went on again Instantly
and we saw the man on the running
board with a revolver In hl8 hand. In
side the car we saw a man fall over Into
a woman's lap. Then we heard a gray
bearded man shout 'Here's a funeral for
somebody.' Then everybody ran and
things got confused and the man on the
running board dropped off and ran
That's what wc saw."
The Howery haunts of the gangsters
were thrown Into much commotion all
last night when word flashed through
the East Side that "they croaked Hlg
Jack." Immediately the Howery had a
story that the murderer was a Hostnn
gunman known to the underworld as
Ited Phil. Davidson's hair has a tawny
tinge and his first name being Philip
the reporters asked his wife at Head
quarters whether or not her husband
hailed from Boston.
Came Here From naasla.
She said he never had been In Hoston
and never had been called Red Phil.
She and Davidson, she said, had come to
New York together thirteen years ago
from the ltusslan town Katerlnslave,
where both were born and raised, and
had married a "year after coming here.
Davidson started In then In the fruit
business, she said, at 1661 East New
York avenue, Hrownsvllle, and had
been there from that time until about
three months ago. Then he had sold
the business to her father because of
Mrs. Davidson's falling health and had
gone with her to Harry Hoffman's farm
at Swanna I-nke, Dear Peeksklll, and
had lived there until last Thursday,
when they had come back to Man
hattan to live with Mrs. Davidson's
brother, David Alter, on the third floor
of 111 Seventh street.
The Bowery's story of Red Phil from,
Boston had It that yesterday afternoon
this Red Phil and Zellg had run across
each other on the East Side.
"Why don't you stay, In Uoston. ymi
stool pigeon?" Zellg, according
to the Bowery, said to Boston Phil.
"Mind your own affairs, you
Becker stool," Boston Phil Is reported
to have retorted.
The Bowery says that a fight between
the two started then. Friends Jumpd
in nnd separated the combatants, tho
story runs. But during the rest of the
day and evening both men went about
the East Side growling and swearing
vengeance Until, according to Zellg's
friends, Boston Phil, or Red Phil, shot
While District Attorney Whitman was
holding his private examination of
Davidson after midnight this morning
the story got about Headquarters that
Zellg had spent Friday night In the
Tenderloin. He was well supplied with
money while cruising around the Ten
derloin cross streets and hnd shown, It
was said, a roll of bills that totalled
close to $800. After midnight yesterday
morning he Is said to have come down
to the East Side, where he again showed
his roll of bills, and when a friend
asked for a loan Zellg counted off $300
and gave it to him.
BEGAN CRIMINAL CAREER AT 14.
Zellg "Rent rlekpoeket In C'owntrr"
In Abort Time,
Big Jack Zellg, gangster, gunman and
pickpocket, first began to attract the
attention of the police about 1806, when
he was known aa a pickpocket. Ho was
a fourteen-year-old, ourly headed East
Hide boy In knickerbockers then, and
In a very short time, according to act
ing Inspector Faurot, the police came
to know him as the "best pickpocket in
As a boy he often got Into trouble
through his liking for oxuberant fun,
but many a tlmo the complainant who
had caused tho boy's arrest in a sudden
feeling of anger at a broken window or
some other result of n boyish prank
would weaken when the case got to
court, and the case would be dismissed.
The gangster was born in 1MJ on Nor
folk street, and his right name waa either
William Albert -or William Alberts. Ills
gang name was not fastened to him until
tie had abandoned pooketplcking aa his
main support and had taken to "shak
