ioMph A. Shay of 25 Brood street,' the.
latest addition to Charles A. Booker's
ocmrycl 011 appeal, ?aftcr conferring with
Decker at Sing Sing for three hours yes
terday afternoon said last night that
the defenco since Becker was sentenced
has come on new evidence that ls sure
to convinco any Justice or any one else
tliat Decker was illegally convicted."
"1 shall now expedite the work of get
ting a new trial for Lieut. Becker." said
Mr. Shay, "and I am confident that we
hall not liave to wail a year or more.

taken in liecKer s cose. llie newly dis

that I -am convinced everything can be
wound up within six months from to
Mr Shay said that Becker had assured
him yesterday that Lawyer Louis J.
Grant has not been engaged by Becker.
Mr Grant told Tub So.f reporter on
Friday that he and Mr. Molntyro would
have charge of Becker's appeal, and
this was repeated to'Mr. Shay last night.
"I don't know how' Mr. Grant could
have got such an impression," replied
Mr. Shay. "If he still believes he is in
the cat-o ho will eee that he isn't when
Mrs. Becker delivers to him a message
tilling him that he has not been engaged.
Hecker himself cavo rr.o this message
to-dny and asked me to have Mrs. Becker
tell Grant' that Grant has not been ro
Following the; statement of yesterday
that John" F. Mclntyro no longer ii con
nected with liecker's rnsn IHa nnthnrltv
I for which, by the way, was the direct and
positive assertion of a lawyer who fomred
part of Becker's counsel during the trial
of the policeman Mr. Mplntyro's part
ner, David C. Hirsch, called up the nows
papera to say that Air. Mclntyro was not
out of tho case, Mc. Mclntyre had just
railed Mr. Hirsch up on the long distance
telephone, said fllr. Hirsch, to say posl
tlvely that he is still of counsel for Becker
jj andrintends to continue active wonk In
fth Becker appeal. '
Mr. Grant, despite Mr. Shay's assertion
tnat he has nothing to do with the case,
also called up tho newspapers to say that
-Mr. jiciniyre positively is still counsel
fur Becker." Mr. Shay last night insisted
lo that Mr. Mclntyre still is in the case.
"Mrs. Becker retained me the day
Becker was sentenced." said Shay last
night. "When Mr. Mclntyre heard -that
Mrs. Becker had been down to my office,
which is next to his own, he called me up
to ask me if I had been retained arid when
I told him that I had been he Bald he was
delighted to hear it. Then I had a con
ference with Mr. Mclntyre over the case
and we intend to get.together as soon as
Mr. Mclntyro grts bark and goe4o work.
"The end of the trial and sentencing
automatically retinxl Messrs. Hart,
Stryker and Whiteside, and inasmuch
ns they were not retnined and Mr. Mc
lntyro apd 1 were, we two uro now the
only lawyers representing Becker in his
appeal. . It should be understood, how
ever, that In these changes of counsel
there hasn't been friction of any sort."
John W. Hart when told yesterday that
Mr. Shay had been retained by Becker
would make no comment, but it is settled
that Mr. Hart is out of the case. Mr.
Hart said he had never heard of Ml,
Shay and asked who Mr. Shay was. Al
though Mr. Shay's name appears on the
door next to Mr. Mclntyre s door and
the Mclntyre and the Shay offices have
a communicating door, Mr." Hart never
theless was sure that Mr. Shay's name
was new to him.
Lawyer C. Q. F. Wahle, counsel for the
four gunmen, said yesterday that after
looking over the names or the ZOO talesmen
from which the jurors who will decide the
fate 01 the gangsters will be selected,
that he never had seen a list of talesmen
of so good a quality. Mr. Wahle seemed
to be especially pleased with it.
Among the 300 whohave been subpoenaed
to be on hand when the gumen jury is
.elected are- Robert Collier, publisher;
Dexter O. Tiffany, a broker of 310 West
Fifty-seventh street: Albert Gallatin, an
artist of 7 East Sixty-seventh street;
( harles Toffey, vice-president of the
United Cigar Stores Company; Alfred
Jaeckel. a furrier at 3S4 Firth avenue!
George C. Boldt of the Waldorf, Oscar
Thchirky, manager of the Waldorf;
'Ihomas Scribner, a publisher; Homer
X. Bartlett, a composer: Leo S. Dache,
a broker, and William H. Hulick, direc
tor in the United States Steel Corpo
ration. Detectives Al Thomas and Barney
Hood of District Attorney Whitman's
staff and four other detectives went to
the Grand Central Station yesterday
afternoon at 2 o'clock- and remained
there until late in the afternoon as a
result of the letter of warning sent to
Mr, Whitman in which one "Dutch"
said that "4 Gunmen," one of them minus
an ear, would arrive about 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon from Chicago to
Kill Mr. Whitman. '
The detectives scrutinized not only the
men who left, from the Chicago train but
those who came in on trains from Boston,
Albany and other cities, but saw nothing
that caused them to act against anus-M-nger.
Mr. Whitman was bo little concerned
about the threAtB that he did not inquire
wiit'ther the "four 'glinmen" had arrived
r not. The detectives, however, had
thought that it was at least worth while
lo tnko. the precaution of looking over
ji'Kterdar'rf train arrivals.
