bA) EXPECT SERIOUS RESULTS
" New York, July 20. Whole-
! sale shootings and killings are
feared if the districkattarney con
tinues his efforts to uncover the
agreement alleged to exist be-
i , tween the New York underworld
; and police force.
The rriurder of Rosenthal has
become an incidental in the un-
' earthing of the supposed partner
ship. It was his death which
started the probe.
The men who murdered him
are known. District Attorney
. Whitman says they will be pun
ished.. If they are brought to
trial they will be forced to testify
to their relations with the police
; and tell why they were not mo-
. lested immediately following, the
slaying of Rosenthal.
The underworld is determined
the district attorney shall not
learn the truth. Gunmen are
ready for any desperate deed that
may terrorize those fighting them
The police are making no vig
orous search for the murderers,
who have left the city. They are
well supplied with funds. A few
central officers have been sent to
surrounding cities, but no gen
eral alarm for the arrest of the
murderers has been spread. It
is even doubtful If the detectives
would arrest the' slayers if they
jsvere fpund. "
Whitman has entirely cut loose
from the police department. He
is depending entirely for his evi
dence upon the efforts of a pri
vate detective agency. The dis
trict attorney has received many
threatening letters, but will carry
the grand jury investigation
through to the end next week.

mier Asquith, who has aroused"
Orangemen by his home rule
speeches in Dublin, had a narrow
escape from injury today when a
suffragette threw a bag of flour at
him from a window, missing him
by a few inches.
f Feeling against Asquith is run
ning high, and it 'is feared that he
may be roughly handled ,while
traversing the streets.
Dublin, July 20. That part of
Ireland which wants home rule is
wildly enthusiastic as a result of
Premier Asquith's speech here. It
is said that not even John Red
mond could have been more forc
ible in his declarations.
Bitter feeling prevails against
the suffragettes, who are alleged
to have plotted to .burn the the
ater in -which Asquith made his
speech. An attempt was made
last night to throw a band of suf
frage leaders into the River Lif-
