Mclntyre, Grant, and Shay
All Sure They Will

NEW YORK. Nov. C Chnrlos
Becker, formeily pollco lieutenant, today
dropped almost out of eight In his own
nppeul from Ills sentence to death,
whllo flvo lnwyers squabbled nmonB
themseUca ui to who reiillv repre
sented tho convicted former officer.
"I am the onlv attorney Becker now
nun, nnd I shall prosecute the appeal.
Hhay la not In this case at all," asserted
John r. Mclntyre, who wns associated
with John W. Mart In defendliiK IJeckcr
ut his recent trial.
"Mclntyre and I are Decker's law
jers now. I shall write the brief In
appeal and Mclntyro will areuc It," said
Joseph A. Shay, who shares offices with
"Shay Is a 'butter-In.1 He Is not In
this case at nil. Mclntyre and I will
prosecute llecker's appeal," asserted
Louis J. Grant, who has handled a
Kreat number of police department
"I nutnmntlcnllv ceased to be attorney
of record for Becker when he was sen
tenced, and I was not specially re
rtn1npft." snlrl John W. Hart.
"Hart Is Btlll Becker's attorney of
record, and all papers from the district
attorney's office will be served on him.
We recognize Hart alone as Decker's
lawjer." was Charles 8. Whitman's
contribution to the mlxup.
Shay started the squabblo by say
Inc last Saturday that ho had been
retained by Mrs. Decker to succeed
Hart and write Becker's brief on np
peal. He reiterated yesterday that he
In Decker's attorney of record nnd said
he has written Whitman apprising him
of this sltuatoln. Shay admitted that
his retention was erbal, and that he
has not jet been paid any money by
When Whitman wns asked about this
he admitted he had received such a
letter from Shay, but added that the
district attorney's office has received
no proper notice of Shay's entry Into
the case from Hart, Becker, or Mrs.
Becker, t'ntll such formal notice Is re
ceived, Whitman said. Hart alone will
be recognized by the district attorney's
office as Bicker's lawyer.
When Hart was asked to she his
mtbIoii he said.
"I am no longer Becker's lawyer. Ho
did not retain me after he was sen
tenced, nnd that ended my connection
with the case. I wnnt to net away for
u month's rest. I told Decker after he
had been convicted that ho should have
new blood In this case. He aKreed with
me. That Is all there Is to It."
Mclmjrn was angry at the turn
Becker's legal nffalrs have tnken.
"I. and 1 alone, am Decker's law
yer," Mclntyre thundered. "I am not
out of the case, as has been stated.
I shall prosecute Decker' n appeal. It
would bo a blow to my prldo to drop
or bo droppeil out of the case now.
Hhay never was In this cae, so ar as
I know. I shall not turn over any
papers or exhibits in this case until I
have the wiltten authority of Decker or
Mrs. Decker to do so "

Do you know why so many Specific Blood Poison Victims are also suf

their systems with mercury or potash in nn effort to cure the blood dis

Don't you know that with a small cash payment (as an evidence of fair intent) and
