COUNSEL GAGGED ME,
GRlmari's Slayer Asserts Ills
Lawyers Said Rofrano
Would" Save Him.
WAS TOLD NOT TO WORRY
Witness Reenacts the Seenc of
Hip Mtirdffr for ronrfs.
Oaetano Montlmasno, tin-
murderer of Michael Onlnml, yesterday
told (lie Jury Hint Is hcarlntf tlic trial
of Michael nofrnno for tlic naino mur
der., that he had Informed hi own law
ytrs,, Ctesar Barra arid Qlrard Cuoco.
that 'RorraVio hafl m'atle him kill aalmnrl
and, that they hnd advlaed him to kefp
hi ttwuth ihut If he wished to ro free.
TtAi wai brought out In detail by
AMUt'ant District Attorney Brothers
after Martth Littleton, Itofrano's attor
ney, had cfcened' up the way by asking
Montlmagno If he had told his present
tory about Rofrano to' any one before
Wa conviction. According to Montlmaxno
tie Trailed' to se If' RofrSno would make
good Ma 'promises, and 'hi attorneys
had fold him that Hofrano's Influence
would save him.
Carsar Ttarra, when told of Monti
mnro"s tsttmotty, paid that It would
be unprofessional for him to comment
on It In any way except to reiterate
what Mr. Cuoco had anld that Mon
UmagTi6"8'testlmony wan untrue.
"When did you first tell your lawyers
that you were guilty?" aiked Mr.
Menllmainn Telia of Advice.
"The, first time they enmo to ace me
In the Fifty-third street prison," said
Montlmagno. SI told Mr. Burra that
I wa the man who committed the mur
der and told them who made me do It.
I mentioned Brondlnl, Cornell, Fennt-
more, Rofrano and Chuck.
"Barra said to me. Listen. Monti
magno ; do you want to go freer 1 said,
'Yes.' Then he said, 'You keep your
mouth shut, say nothing, don t tnlk to
anybody. Tell your two companions,
Kennlmore, who Is under arrest now,
If they say nothing at that time I
think ho mentioned Kox also and that
If he kept his mouth shut he would
get out, and that Brondlnl would get
witnesses to say I- was Innocent and
that we would nil go free, and that Ro
frano wan working day and night to ar
range It so I would go free.'
"I said, 'Why Is It every day thy
put mo In the lineup? What Is the work
they are doing for me?1 rte said, 'Shut
up; this Is the work of the District At
torney to scare you, but when the trial
come nobody will come to the front.'
Then he told me that the persona who
see me, Rofrano had paid them ao that
Uicy would go away.
Silence and Freedoaa.
"Then Cuoco said, 'If you keen silent
you will go free; If you sneak you will
go to Jail.' "
Two daya later he saw them both
again and. Montlmngno continued :
"Cuoco said, 'Brondlnl has brought
witnesses to my house and they will
testify that you were not the person
that did the shooting.'" '
Montlmagno said he was afraid be
cause Pauline Samuels picked hltn out
of the lineup.
"Cuoco said, "Don't worry, die will
testify she never saw you In her house.
Keep silent, because we know what we
have to do to keep you out.' I said to
him, 'There Is the barkeeper who saw me
leave my coat,' and he said, 'He silent,
Kofrano has many friends and will fix
cxerythlng.' He Mild Hofrano was send
ing persons to him every day and he
and Rofrano had talked tOKether and
everything was golni? well In the case.
He said, 'Don't say anything to I.a Salle
and Seraflno. Whoever asks you about
the murder you must say 'I do not know
anything about It.' "
Scene la limine trd.
The morning session was enlivened by
another dramatization by Muutlinugii'u
of the way he shot ilalmarl the Horse.
Tills time' he was dressed In tho over
coat he wore on the day of the crime
and the revolver was given to him.
.Montlmagno showed him- ho threw the
oat open so he could use the gun nnd
clicked It viciously several times to Illus
trate how he tired Into fJulmarl after ho
fell face down. The pantomlmo was a
bit too much for him and he made a
slip which Mr. Littleton was quick to
take udvantage of.
"If you didn't want to commit murder
nliy did you fire Into his body after he
fell to the ground?" asked Mr. Littleton.
"Because that's what I had liocn told
tn do by Hofrano. I was to fire all six
hullef..." This was the first time Monti-
magno had mentioned that Itoftano hail
said such n thing. Mr. Littleton read
from l,.i Salle's testimony that Monti,
inngno had said In Cornell's flat that
IhW time ho would get Galmarl nnd that
he would empty the pistol. Montimugno j
ociueo mai ne naci muao sucn state
ments. He also gave his reasons for not
wanting to shoot Oalmar! and for pre
ferring the blackjack ot knife. When it
man is shot he rarely gets well, but
when ho Is blackjacked or stabbed a
man Is not apt to die. "It all' depends
on how the knife is given," he explained.
Montlmagno ended his testimony late
In the afternoon and after Kdward A.
Ilusfcpy of the telephone company had
identified some telephone records Ixmls
Mlra, tho Slate's corroborating witness
tegardlng tlie meetings In Hronrtlnl's
flat, took the vtund. He told of going to
