For reasons of his own. the District
Attorny did not call Webber, Vallon and

case. And then the defense went on and
built up their case on the testimony of

The closing scenes In the presentation
of the case of the defense were replete
with all the picturesque incidents of the
preceding das of the trial. With the
exception of "Dago Frank," who made a
really excellent witness for himself. It
was the day of the supernumeraries In
this stirring drama of the underworld.

Into court so that Giovanni Stanlsh might
declare they were not among the men he
saw with guns In their hands on the
night of the shooting
Society was represented on the occasion
by Mrs. C K. G 'Billings, the well-known
horsewoman, and the Baroness Batdorf.
In the motley throng were all the well
known types, and the customary crowd
clamored outside the gates, held In check
by a detail of fifty policemen
"Dago ' Frank was the star of the oc
casion He put the finishing touches to
the alibi which his associates had built up
for him, and other wise he followed close
1 the story which G p and "Lefty"

On direct examination his story fol

ThK he said, was on the night that
Roe called with Schqpps and Vallon and
carried the "Dago ' downtown to Web

night, or that anything had been said to

name was not even mentioned. He de
nied that i)s "had ever seen Rosenthal.
It was on cross-examination that he
showed to best advantage. He admitted
having been sent to Elmlra for being
found with a gun and a slung shot on
his person. That, he swears, was the
only time he "has been sent io prison.

He left the stand smiling; and then there
followed a procession of Tenderloin 'hab
