IM Servia, however, has not yet replied
COTQa to the Austro-IIungarian suggestion
HJB that a Servian occupation of Alban
H ian territory or of a port on the
K Adriatic sea v.ill not be tolerated. At
jS the same time a Servian army con
stat .tlnue3 its march toward the Adriatic
?r coast and in one report from Belgrade
2sf 's sn'd actually to have reached
9) Durnzo.
H Russia Disregards Public Opinion.
BK The Russian government, acting In
ifjjR direct disregard of public feeling In
HE Russia, has notified the Servian min-
Oiw 5stor at St Pelersburg thai Russia
uM will not go to war over the question
JjM- of an Adriatic port. The Russion
jjM- foreign minister, Sorgius Sazjnoff, at
MM the same time Informed the Servian
K minister that Russia would give
H friendU support to Servia in her nc-
B gotiations with Austria-Hungary.
E It is understood that Count von
B Bcrtkold. tbo Austro-Hungarian for-
B clcn mlI-ter. has proiosf1 to give
K ctcnb-e nrivil"ges to Servia in con-
nL' ncc'-i ii the projected Adrlatic-

j Bulgarian Proposals.
'J3 It is said Dr. Daneff. president of
H the Bulgarian chamber of deputies.
proposed that Austria should allow
4MM Servia to go to some pori on the
& Adriatic -without obtaining the tcrri
M tory nt the back of It or the right to
'B fo-'iiv the port, which would be con
's Jiected with Servian territory by n
flxl railway.
m ! No P.eply From Servia.
Uj Servia has yet to be heard from re-
3 ' sarding these proposals. She believes
: that Austria aims at her political and
At ' economic subjection, which would
ii break up the alliance of the Balkan
W nations. While Independent of Ser
via, Austria-Hungary fears that the
Servians In Austria would want to
join the armies of their own nation.
Albanians Proclaim Autonomy. j
Meantime the Albanian chiefs nt a j
meeting at the seaport of Avalona
nave proclaimed the autonomy of
their country. Turkey is once more
reported to have made a direct appeil
to the Balkan allies for mediation,
and Constantinople also hears that i
the European powers have submitted
to the Balkan nations Turkey's re
quest for an armistice pending nego
tiations for peace.
Turkey In Better Position.
Turkey is now In a better position
to ask for an armistice, as it is un
derstood strong re-enforcements of
fresh Turkish troops have leached
Tchatalja and might hold out there
for days if not weeks. The absence
a of news from that quarter suggests
2 that the Bulgarian army Is not walk-
ing over the Turkish fortifications as
?j it was expected to do. The duel be
ll tween the Turkish warships and the
2- Bulgarian artillery appears still to be
2 in progress at Rodosto, on the Sea of
2 ; Mnrmora.
iW The garrison of Adrianoule has
K made another desperate sortie, and,
'M according to Bulgarian accounts, has
B been driven back into the fortiflca-1
jf tions.
a Little Jealousies Crop Out.
The little Jealousies existing among
ffl the Balkan allies cropped out again at
'j , Saloniki. The Bulgarians who fol
P , lowed the Greeks into the city tolc
iff graphed to King Ferdinand that the
m town was now under his sceptre.
Jp These incidents are arousing the
i ; ire of the Greeks who have now

4 Wounded In Terrible Condition.
J A letter received in London from a
I . member of the American embassy in
H Constantinople depicts the terrible
9t ' condition of the wounded arriving at
I , the capital.
t The staff of the embassy, 2sVisted
w by the local branch of the American
ft i Red Cross society, is taking care of l
Ti ' some 2,000 wounded Turkish soldiers,
' ' but la greatly handicapped by the
L lack of hospital necessities.
Turkc Lose Control.
I The letter adds that the Turkish
! government ha3 lost control of the
city and seems helpless.
From the reports of corrcspond-
j cuts on the Bulgarian side their
I ' wounded are In just as bad condition
j ss tho Turkish. One corrcspondeui,
,'; I In describing tho poor ambulance
M t service of the BulgarianB, whoso
ii ; wounded are driven for miles in joltr
I I lng oxen carts, says tbJii is not the
j worst part of their suffering. He
'continues:
I "After several battles, the wounded
were left lying on the bare fields
where Uiey had fallen, for two or
three hot days and bitterly cold
I nights and the worst s'ghts In the
j hospitals are the rows of poor fel
lows with swollen and gangrened
limbs for whom there is no hope of
rocovcry."
Dying From Exposure.
The correspondent adds lhat many
arc dying from exposure and not from
1 wounds.
An "old Turk," writing to the news
papers to deplore the defeat of his
country, says it would not have hap
pened had Abdul Hnmld been re
tained on the throne. He continued:
'O'ur true sultan has now returned
to the city of the faithful an this
fact has caused a greater sensation
In the Ottoman empire than all the
reverses our troops have suffered."
He predicts that Abdul Hamid I
within a few week's will be restored i
to the throne in Constantinople and '
owing to tho dissensions of the pow
ers port of the Turkish empire will
be saved lo her. j

MURDERERS
IDENTIFIED
Chauffeur Tells Whole
Story Picks Out Each
Man In Turn
New York, Nov. 13. William Sha
piro, chauffeur of the murder car, to
day picked out "Lefty Louie" Rosen
berg. "Gyp the Blood" Horowitz,
"Whltey Jack" Lewis and "Dago
Frank" CIrofici as the actual mur
derers of Herman Rosenthal.
It was the supreme dramatic Inci
dent of the Rosenthal affair
Like a shot well placed iu tho ene
my's works. District Attorney Whit
man hurled the Shapiro confeslon in
to the trial of the four sunmen at the
psychological moment, and literally
blew their defense into the air.
Casting aside his fear of death at:
the bands of the gunmen's friends, re
sponding to the tearful pleadings of I
his mother and throwing himself on
the mercy of the law, the short, swar
thy, slocklly built young man who
carried the assassins on the mission
! of death faced them Intrepidly and I
told a story which, tnless broken
down, will inevitably send all four
defendants after Charles Becker to
the death house at Sing Sing.
"I did It for my mother's sake, '
was the low, pathetic refrain of the
witness in explanation :if his deser
tion of the scowling defendants, who
sat with btirnins hatred in their eyes,
listoning to the man who had been
indicted Jointly with them swearing
away their lives
It was a tense silent pause in which
Shapiro, under the glare of the elec- j
trie lights left the witness chair and I
stepped quickly to the table where,
the four gunmen were seated. They j
bent forward as he approached, and
the eyes of each glowed red. Sha-1
nirn rlld not falter It was his life
' ngainst theirs, pits the aching heart
if an aged mother. Successively he
1 pointed a nenous linger at each of
the four defendants, meeting their
snarling glances with steady, unfear-
I ing gaze
i ""These are the men," he declared
solemnly, ' 'Wbiley,' Frank. 'Lefty,'
'Gyp.' I took them 'n my car to the
Metropole; 1 heard the shots fired.
They came running back, two of them
I with pisto's in their hands, they leap-
cd into the car. two on each side.
'Gyp' put a revolver to my head and
cried:
"'Hurry up. you boob,and drive ozt
xf liercU . rf. .r-,, .kst-
"And then, as the car dashed off, I
heard them SJiy:
" 'Nobody saw us. There wasn't a
cop around. Becker fixed it all right.' '
It is the entire Becker case in a nut
shell. Twelve jurors sul tipped for
ward In their chairs absorbed in the
recital. The spectators were spell
bound. The four defendants gazed
straight ahead, their lips curled in
scorn and defiance. Yet all four
went back to the Tombs white faced
and with the fear of the law in their
hearts
Wahle for tho defense went at Sha
piro viciously on cross-examination.
But the result of his attack was mere
ly to bring into stronger relief the:
original story told by the witness.
He bore down heavily on Shapiro's I
refusal until recently, after the' ap- j
peals of bis mother had gone home, J
to identify the four accused men as i
the occupants of his car on the night I
of the murder. The questions cracked
like pistol shots I
"Why did you refuse to identify, I
these men that day in the coroner's
court?" I
"1 was afraid," came the reply. ,
"Afraid of what?" ,
"That I would be killed "
"And do you identify them now be-
cause you are afraid that you will be
killed?"
No "
"You know that you arc under in
dictment for murder In the lirst de
gree, the ponaltj for which is death.
Is it because yor. are afraid of that i
death that you identify them now"'" !
"No." loplfed Shapiro, a soft light
coming into lils eyes !
"Then why did you Identify them?"j
"I did t for my mother's sake." j
came the answer In clear, ringing J
tones, and through the court room
there swept a suppressed sob from
the throats of half the spectators.
"Dago Frank" ?neered 'Gyp tho i
Blood" looked mystified and the oth-
crs continued to stare straight ahead
And then Whitman let loose the i
connecting link, which seems to put I
'he story beyond all cavil Shapiro !
swore that on the date that he was
arrested, which was on the morn- '
Ing that Rosenthal was killed, he told!
Aaron Levy, his attorney . the story j
he recited today from the witness
chair. And Aaron Levy stands ready
to take the stand to corroborate his
client and drive the last clinching
coppor rivet into the case of the
prosecution.
Shapiro told of the telephone mes
sage he received from Jack Rose at
11 p. m.. on the night of tho murder
calllnfg him to Tom Sharkey's sa
loon on Fourteenth street, where he
met Rose. Schcpps and Vallon. He
drove from there to Ono Hundred and
Forty-fifth street and Seventh ave
nue, where "Dago Frank" joined the
party dywn to "Biidgcy" Webber'3
poker room in Forty-second street.
Fifteen minutes after reuniting Web
ber's "Dago Frank" came down and
told him he u'is t0 c himself and
throe others around to Forty-third '
strceL Frank said Jack Rose had
requested this. The inon with Frank I
were "Whitey" 1-cwls. "Gyp the
Blood," and rfLerty" Louie.
"Do you see them here in the
courtroom?" asked Whitman.
'Yos, sir, there," and he pointed
across the Inclosure to where the de
fendants were seated.
Here it was that the Uentlflcation
was mado, while the. chauffeur and
the gunmen raced each other amid
deep silence across the table.
Resuming his story. Shapiro told
how at the direction of Frank he had
driven past the Metropole, turned
around and repassed the hotel. Frank
he testified, said;
"Everything's all right. There are
no cops there. Bocker said so."
The men then got out of the car
and crossed the street Fifteen min
utes latqr he heard three or four
shots and the men ran back to the
car
"I saw them coming toward me.
J The same four." he said. "Two had
revolvers In their hands. They were
'Daco' Frank and 'Lefty' Louie. They
got In on one side, 'Whitey' and 'Gyp'
on tho otiier. 'Gyp put a revolver to
my head and cried. 'Hurry up, and I
drive away from here ' I took his I
orders."
I Shapiro then described the route I
which was taken until the men j
abandoned the car. j
"Did ou hear anything said while j
they weie still In the car?" asked'
Whitman J
"I heard whispering," roplled
Shapiro "Thej were saying 'All
right Nobody saw us. There were j
no cops arouud. Becker fixed ev- i
I erything.' " :
Cross-examination railed to shake i
i the testimony of the witness, who, '

had told the same story to his oun

IROSE AGAIN

ed By Webber
New York, Nov 13. The imper
turbable Jack Rose, the baldheadcd
gambler whose testimony was mainly
responsible for the conviction of Chas.
Becker, took the witness stand today
as the state's chief witness against
the four gunmen charged with slaying
' Herman Rosenthal at Becker's bid
ding Generally speaking, his testi
mony was a repetition of his remark
able narrative at the Becker trial.
Under Becker's orders, he swore that
he threatened the gunmen with a
, "frarueup" and importuned them lo
take the "squealing" gamblers life.
Cioss-exainination failed to shake
his story.
New York, ,Nov. 13. "BalJ Jack"
;Rose and "Bridgie" Webber, "two of
the informers whose testimony re-
suited In tho sentence to death of
Charles Becker, were taken today'to

I the stand for the people against the
' four gunmen indicted for murdering j
, Herman Rosenthal.
1 Eye Witness Called.
Another witness whose testimony
the state planned to introduce was
Thomas Coupe, the young English
man who as clerek of the Elks' club
was an eye-witness to the crime.
Rose took the stand as soon as
court convened.
Calmly and glibly he began his
narrative, going over much of the
ground covered at the Becker trial.
He told of meetings with the gun
men; of Becker's threat to "frame
them" unless they "croaked" Rosenthal-
of Becker's boast that he would
shield them after the Job was done.
'"All right; we'll do it.'" tho wit
