MONK EASTMAN IS SliAIN IN N.Y.
Former Gangster Who Had Citizen
ship Rostered for Bravery.
New York, Dec. 6.-"Monk" East
man, once leader of a notorious gang
that terrorized the lower East Sido, .
a convicted felon, but restored to
citizenship as a reward for heroism
as a soldier in the groat war, was
slain shortly before daybreak to-day |
by "some one unknown." .
Eastman's body, bearing live bul
let wounds, was found by a policeman ,
at the corner of 1.4th street and 4th'
avenue. Nearby, on the steps of a
subway entrance, lay a revolver with
Ave empty shells.
In the dead man's pockets were
$140,a watch and chain and a Christ
mas card. The presence of the val
uables indicated to the police that the
killing of Eastman probably was not
part of tho prevailing crime wave,
but the result of a vendetta.
.Eastman, whose right name was
William Delaney, had a youthful ca
reer that was lurid even for under
world annals. The son of wealthy
and indulgent parents, he chose as
his companions the gangsters ot the
one-time "toughest" district in New
York, near 14th street and 3d avenue
-only one block nway from whore he
this morning was killed.
A dozen years ago the "Monk"
Eastman gang was composed of gun
men, burglars and drug addicts, and
the police claimed to have traced
a score of murder mysteries to the
zone in which the gangsters operated, j
Their loader, however, served terms
for lesser crimes-burglary, smug-1
gling of narcotics and disposing of
The last time Eastman appeared
on police records was In .1915, when
he was arrested, pleaded guilty to
robbery and was sentenced to two
years in prison. On his release, In
October, 1917, ho enlisted In the
army as a doughboy in the 106th
infantry of tho 27th division. He
then was 4 5 years of age.
After the war he was honorably
discharged, but lacked the rights of
citizenship because he had boon con-1
vlcted of felony. Governor Smith, in !
restoring the soldier's civic status, j
acted on the recommendations of the j
An incident related to the Govor- !
nor was that Eastman had "gone over
the top" on hands and knees with :
grenades with which to attack a Ger- j
man machine gun nest. The enemy |
fire was so intense that his pack was .
sheared from his back, but he gained
