TRY ALL DAY IN VAIN
Two Men Already In Box Ex
cused and Their Places
MANY rLEAD PREJUDICE
Obvious Evasion of Service.
Calls Forth Jtebuko by
It was Impossible yesterday to find tho
twelfth juror for tho trial of Liout. Booker.
It seemed to Justico Ooff that talesmen
were deliberately disqualifying thorn-
solves. Man after man, doggodly or
glibly, Insisted that ho had such set con
victions that he didn't believe ho could
give Bocker a fair trial.
There was no ring of sincerity to the
Justice's ear In this monotony of volun
tary disqualification. The very tones of
tho unwilling talesmen wero at dull
and tint as flawed china.
Wearied, impatient, indignant, unable
to nppeal to many on tho scorn of tho
duties of citizenship, the Justloo finally
told counsel that tho court was helpless
unless it could rely upon tho patriotism
and honesty of citizens.
Thoro wero otlr causes for the failure
to completo tho Jury. Two jurons that
were selected provisionally on Tuesday
I.esllo A. Waro of 310 Lenox avenue, who
was Juror 8, nnd John E, Dillon, man
ager of Bonwit Teller A Co , who was Juror
11 wero excused from duty because of
Illness in their families.
An additional reason in the case of Mr.
Dillon was that his son-in-law. J. Hackett
Ward, was connected with the homicide
bureau of tho District Attorney's office
at tho time that three of Becker's counsel
were members of Jcromo's staff.
Tho removal of Mr. Ware and Mr. Dillon
set Irnck the work for some hours. Even
tually Charles Bnuchfuss, a real estate
dealer of 435 West 155th street, was selected
in Mr. Ware's place and Alfred Foll
heimer, an architect living at 8"t River
side Drive took Mr. Dillon's chair.
Another obstacle in the way of progress
was tho determination for reasons of
legal strategy of Becker's chief counsel.
John F. Mclntyro. to exhaust all of the
thirty jioreniptory challenges allowed
twenty not to ossumo responsibility on
this murder jury. In many instances
witnesses seemed to be so afraid that the
District Attorney or Mr. Mclntyro would
overlook their state of mind that they
hastily volunteered comment that they
didn't lelieve any amount of evidence
would shatter their opinion.
Although II vo additional peremptory
challenges were granted to counsel for
tho defense after tho withdrawal of Mr.
Ware anil Mr. Dillon this increase being
a concession by tho State Mr. Molntyre
used up all but four of his peromptories.
Tho District Attorney at tho close of court
had left just ono. Justico OofT ordered
a now panel of 100 talesmen to be in oourt
at 10:30 o'clock this morning.
On such brief notice hardly more than
n fourth of the, aro exacted to appear.
but the getting of the twelfth juror now
will Im) delayed briefly aftor Mclntyro
lets fly his last challenge.
Within Uie anteroom to the chambers
of Justico tioff were tho four men who,
tho District Attorney believes, are telling
tho truth when they say that Lieut Becker
raged like a madman until ho forced them
to have Herman Rosenthal killed. Brought
down from the West Side Court prison-

They wero betting which would be
called first. Bose was tho favorito. And
th ir gambling instinct was not at fault.
Unless tho District Attorney changes
his mind the bald man will first face tho
jury after formal testimony has been
Tho delay was obviously a disappoint
ment to those special writers who go about
in shirtwaists and stubby toed boots and
who between powder dabs produco mar
vellous psychological studios and convict
tho dofendant on tho shape of his nose.
Tho psychologists put in tho timo by
studying Mrs. Bockor, one of the few
women in court,
AlKjilt the most interesting episode of
the third day of tho trial was the exami
nation of tho last talesman of the panel,
lio wus (loorgu Jeremiah, talesman No.
1st nn tiikilirnnrv, lirnbnrnf 4H Dim. u , . ,
Asketl whether ho had formed an opinion
as to tno guilt or mnocenco of the do
fendant Mr, Jeremiah, whoso strong voioo
triumphed over tho wretched aooustlcs
of tho court room, replied:
"I should say I had a very definite
opinion ns to what the outcome of this
ciso ought to bo,"
Mclntyro and his associates wero up as
, if projected by springs. Mr. Jeremiah
"lm" r surprises everynociy ny saying
that ho was well acquainted with John
Donahue, tho young man who w.ih a

L'nder ipiostionlng Mr. Jeromiah said
that Donahue had given him the facta
m tlm transaction and that ho had given
Dnuahiin "some friendly advice." Ho
was not allowed, of course, to toll whut
Donahue had said to him, After somo
hesitation Justine Oofl" excused him.
.lei oino H Allen, an architect, tho i3Mh
lalosman. was rejected because the de
fendant didn't like his looks.

Jalesman jo.1 was Julius Becker, who
was strongly biased. Ho was excused
after Mr. Mclntvro had put this question:
"Your name is Becker, isn't it?" There Is
already ono Becker on the jury, (Joorgo
F. Eagleson of :isr Fort Washington
avenue, was rejected by Becker after a
conference with counsel. Charles Noll
son of 310 Ul verside Drive, n civil engineer
and transportation expert and formerly
nn assistant I'ostmaster-deneral of tho
United States, wus excused. Several
talesmen who sajd they wero publishers
and who testified that they got out papers
of one kind or another wero promptly got
rid of by tho defence.
Is.inc W, Kendall, a vigorous young man.
who is a stock broker at 55 Wall street, nnd
who knows Col. Henry Sternberger, an
ncquaintnnco of Becker's, was challenged
bv Whitman. John J. llallahan of fin
West Sixty-sixth street, had a son on t.ho
police force. He disappeared quickly.
Sir. Mclntyro said that the defence had
no prejudice against Jews, but the do
fence has challenged soverul Jows peremp
torily. Tho entire nanel was exhausted at
(1:30 P. M. Work with the now panel will I
begin at 10:30 o'clock this morning. If J
the twelfth luror Is obtained oarlv in the
day tho District Attorney will present his
caso to the jury ana may get so rar as
to call his first witnesses, Among these
will be Coroner's Physician Otto Schultzo.
Mrs. Herman Hosen'thal will follow. And
then likely Jack Bose will take tho stand.

Alexander Karlin. who went on record
on Tuesday as attorney tor Davidson, '
did not uppear at tho inquest yesterday.
"1 can t say who engaged me," said
Mr, Karlin, "as it would bo a violation
of professional confidence. Thorn is
discord in tho family as to whether they
want mo to act, an'd I have practically
withdrawn from tho case."
There was talk yesterday that tho $500
which Zelig either did have on him. or
didn't have oti him, when ho was shot,
and which either did or did not disap

friends as a fee for'ex-Magistrato Charles

Curran Trohcrs Inquire Into
Wosiirnalions as Well as
ONE SERGEANT PENSIONED
Commissioner Waldo Explains
Aetion in One Caso as Us
ing His Jutlprnient,
Tho Curran Aldennanio committee
yesterday brought out that a policeman
appointed by Commissioner Waldo after
he had been rejected by Commluioner
Crojwey and recertified by the Civil
Servico Commission was permitted to
resign ns soon as charges wero brought
against him and without having to reply
to those charges or stand trial.
In another caso an applicant rejected
by Commissioner Cropsoy was appointed
by Waldo, but was marked by him to be
dropped at tho end of his probation
leriod on the recommendation of Fourth
Deputy Commissioner Dillon and seem
ingly of First Deputy Commissioner
McKay. In spito of the decision to drop
him ho was apioiuted the following day.
In another caso a sergeant was allowed
to apply for retirement on the day charges
were served on him, nnd was retired on a
pension tho following day. The charges
wero never pressed. It was suggested
that tho same disposition was made of
charges against a police captain in the
name piecinct who was retlrod at the same
The first case dlsciwsod was that of
Policeman Kocco lionedetto. He was
rejected by Commissioner Cropsey be
causeof alleged falsostatements made on
his application and because of general
reports as to his charaotor. Before that
ho was dismissed by Gen. Bingham at the
end of his probationary period and was
rejected by Commissioner Baker. Waldo
appointed him soon after taking office.
Lieut. Finn testified that Patrick Boyd,
a bartender, had come into the station
houso on January is, 1012, and com
plained of being assaulted by a policeman
at West Broadway and Bleecker street.
Benedetto was on post at that point and
Finn Bent for him. Boyd could not identify
tho policeman. Inspector Daly, however,
preferred charges against Benodotto.
Capt. Domlnick Honry, who was in
command of tho proclnct at the time,
testified that ho received the charges
for berving on Benedetto but that he
didn't serve them because the policeman
resigned two hours before tho charges
Alderman Folko asked how it was
that bo many policemen are informed
of complaints against them which are
being investigated in advance of the
serving of tho charges. Capt. Henry said
that thero was nothing secret about tho
investigations and that the policemen
wero always present when the witnesses
wero being examined. He thought it
would bo illegal to examine witnesses
without the pollcmon being present.
Tho noxt case taken up was that of
Policeman Michael Imbrlalo, still a mem
ber of tho department. Lieut. Htanton's
Investigation bureau reported that al
though he had sworn ho never had been
arrested. Imbrlalo had Iwen tried for
homicide and acquitted -in connection
wth an accident case whilo a street car
motnrman-and tried for felonious as
sault and acquitted. Stanton's report
also characterized his general reputation
as bad and cited ufTidavits by Imbriale's
wife that ho abused hor anil didn't sup
port her. Ho was rejected by Commis
sioner Cropsey and appointed by Com
missioner Waldo un Juno 2H, toil, a little
over a month after taking oftlue.
Among other witnesses in this matter
was Commissioner Waldo. Ho said that
ho had looked into tho case in the hours
between ordering Imbrlalo dropped and
Iho expiration of his probationary period,
by talking with Imbrlalo and examining
Iho records, and then used his judgment.
Waldo made the appointment In spite of
the recommendation of Fourth Deputy
Pollen Commissioner Dillon.
