No Personal Motive
With words tumbling over each
other in their haste, Rose declared that
hp had been a "true friend** to Sam,
Schepps and Harry Vallon and had in
terceded for them with the district at
torney. Rose said that he had no
motive of his own for killing Rosen
thal, but had actted solely at Becker's
direction. Time and again Mclntyre
quoted alleged conversations between
Rose and men of the underworld, ap
parently in an attempt to prove that

Becker's attorney inquired about the
neeting between Scheps, Vallon. Plltt
and the witness at the home of Dora
Gilbert, Rosenthal's former wife, on the
Sunday before the murder.
"Did you say at that time that Rosen

At no time did I ever say that."

Mclntyre then switched his attack
back to the murder plot.
Mclntyre called for the production by
the district attorney of a letter written
by Rose to Schepps when Schepps was
in Arkansas. Whitman handed over
such a letter, which Mclntyre perused
eagerly with his associates. The let
ter was shown to Rose, who acknowl
edged writing it, and it was placed in
"Dear Sam," the letter read. "I don't
know what you have heard or read,
but it had gotten down to the stage
where the electric chair stared us all in
the' face. The first man who tried to
get from under was Becker. There
was many people who saw every
thing that night, and the next day the
district attorney knew what part
everybody played in the thing and
nobody could have gotten away. I was
deserted like a dog by Becker.
OFFERED SORT OF COVER
"When I saw what the situation was
I opened up negotiations with the dis
trict attorney, who offered me" a sort
of cover that I can not go into details
about in writing. I insisted that the
same protection given me be extended
to Harry Vallon, 'Bridgie' Webber and
you, and to this he finally agreed. We
are all pleased with the arrangement.
Our only worry lias been to get you to
come in to get the same friendliness
we got before it Is too late.
"My advice is to let me send a rep
resentative of the district attorney to
bring you back here. That will pre
vent the police from getting you and
putting you through the third degree.
Don't say a word to any one,

"Did you ask Immunity for Schepps?"
"No. I asked that the same protec

"And then again you lied, didn't youT*
"Yes; I lied."
"When did you first know that you
were wanted for murder?"
"On the morning of July 18," Rose
said. "I read it in the newspapers."
"Did you take it seriously?"
"No, I didn't."
"And when did you give yourself up?"
"That same day."
DIDN'T GET SQUARE DEAL
"Doughterty didn't give me a square
deal," Rose volunteered. "I made a
statement to him and he did not write
it down like I made it. He put down
parts of It—such parts as he thought
he wanted to go down and left out
what he didn't like."
"When did you make your confes

"I didn't confess to him. I confessed
to the grand jury."
Mclntyre vainly fought to get on the
record the sort and terms Of Immunity
granted Rose, Schepps and Vallon.

Whitman, Mclntyre asked:

"Was Schepps around?"
"How close was he to you then?"

ten feet. He said that he paid the
money after the murder. Schepps

crowded courtroom as the bald headed
gambler began to testify. Rose said
that he had known Rosenthal for 80 [
years and Becker for several years.'
The witness did not look at Becker as
he gave his- testimony, but the former
police officer watched Rose intently.
Rose spoke in deliberate tones.
"Did you ever have business rela
tions with Becker?" he was asked.
"Yes, I collected for him."

John F. Mclntyre, counsel for the de
"Overruled," ordered the court.
Rose then told of meeting Rosenthal
and Becker in the Elks club on a New
Year's celebration. Mrs. Rosenthal was
present. Becker said to Mrs. Rosen
thal, according to„witness: "Now don't
worry. Herman and I have a thorough
understandihg. He is my friend and I
am his friend and his troubles are all
Rose said that he met Becker again
at his house and at the Union Square
hotel, when Becker told him the de
tails of the alleged partnership In the
gambling house between Becker and
"Becker," Rose testified, "said Her
man had made a proposition to him
that he go into partnership with Ros
enthal in running a gambling house and
asked him to invest $5,000 in it, I said
no one ever made any money In the
gambling business with Rosenthal."
FOURTH SHARE FOR ROSE
Becker, however, continued the wit
ness, did not agree and made a propo
sition to allow Rose to talce a 25 per
cent share In the business of the pro
posed establishment. Becker took a
$2,500 chattel mortgage on Rosenthal's
property and arranged for a "dummy"
to hold the mortgage.
"Becker asked me," the witness went
on, "if I would take charge and I said
The witness told of conversations
with Becker in which the police lieu
tenant inquired what were the profits
of the gambling house.
"I reported to him on one occasion
that the house had made several thou
sand dollars," said Rose. "He told me'
to tell Rosenthal to send him $500. I
went to see Rosenthal, who said he
would not give it, because he thought
he hadn't a square deal on the mort
gage. I told Becker. Becker said that
just as soon as his attention was called
to that place he would raid it. He told
me to tell that to Rosenthal. I told
Rosenthal, who said:
BECKER DEFIED '
"Ytu tell Becker he can't raid this
place unless he gets the prober evi
dence, and he can't get it because I
know all his men and they can't get in
" 'So that is his attitude, is it?' Becker
said when I told him this. 'All right,
I'll raid It. Tell Rosenthal.'
"Rosenthal sent back word by me
to Becker, 'Tell that fellow he'd better
not start anything with me.'
"The next day Becker told me that
Commissioner Waldo had called his at
tention to the place and he (Becker)
would have to raid it. I told Rosen
thal, and Rosenthal said: Tell Becker
he can't bluff me; I don't believe Com
missioner Waldo ever called his atten
tion to my place.'
"Several days later Becker told me
that complaints were pouring in and he
would have to raid the place. He told
me to see Rosenthal and tell him to do
him a favor.
"MUST STAND FOR RAID"
" 'Tell him he has to stand for a
raid.' Becker said. 'I did him a favor
and he must do one for me. I'll raid
the place and it will relieve me from
worry, and in a few days he can reopen
his place and everything will be all
"Rosenthal replied to me: *You tell
Becker he must think I'm crasy to
stand for such a thing. He might as
well take a torch and burn it up. It's
my place and I'm going to handle it
the way I think best.'
"I saw Becker and told him what
" "Well,* said Becker, "I'm going to
raid the place, and raid It in a few
days—within a week.'
"I told Becker it would only cause
trouble and he said: T>on"t you worry
about that; It won't cause me any
trouble; it will only cause trouble for

Rosenthal?' I asked.

he was going to get two men from
the strong arm squad to swear to the
" "That's awfully dangerous, Charlie,'
" 'No,' he said, 'it's all right I'll let
Rosenthal satisfy the mortgage first.
I'll raid his place lf it's the last thing
" 'All right,' I said. 'I'm not going
to be in the house when it's raided.'"
The house was raided.
"Later," Rose testified, "Rosenthal
complained to Becker that policemen
were still stationed in front of his
place and said he was sore because his
wife's nephew was taken in the raid."
MEETING AT ROSE'S HOUSE
Rose said that his next meeting with
Becker was at his own house.
"He told me," Rosa said, 'that Ro
senthal had been calling him up every
day, asking a meeting to find out what
he was going to do about the indict
ments against the men arrested in Ro
senthal's place. He put Rosenthal off.
Soon after Becker said Rosenthal had
begun to talk around street corners,
that he was in partnership with Becker
and was going to show him up.
"Becker a few days later told me of
having seen Commissioner Waldo and
that the commissioner had heard of
Rosenthal's charges and had not be

to print it.
"MEANS TO SQUEAL**
'* 'I guess Rosenthal means to do
what he said he would—to squeal and
break me,' Becker said.
"T'll get a couple of gang men; I
told Becker, 'and go around and tell
Rosenthal that if he does not stop his

" 'What do you want done with Ro

conversation," the witness testified.
"WANT HIM MURDERED*
" 'I want hira murdered, shot, croaked,
dynamited or anything,* Becker replied.
I want him put where we will never
have to worry about him again.' "
The witness here told of Becker's
alleged instructions to him to get out
on bail "Big Jack" Zellg, the gang lead
er, then In the Tombs and have Zejig's
men put Rosenthal out of the way.
"Do you know sentiment at police
headquarters ia so strong that 'they
don't care If Rosenthal is put out of
the way?' Becker asked. 'I want you to
go over to the Tombs and see Zellg and
ask him to give orders to croak Rosen
thal tonight. I will see that Zelig is
out on the street.'
"Becker gave me $100 to take to Ze
llg. 'I'll meet you tomorrow morning
to see what Zellg says,* he told me.
•Tell him that there will be no danger
to his gang.'
GAVE ZELIG 9100
"I saw Zelig and gave him the $100
and told him that it came from Becker,"
Rose continued. "Zelig said 'I don't
want that $100, 1 want to get out of
here. You and Becker got me into this
trouble.' I told him that the $100 was
Just a little favor from Becker and that
he was not to worry.
"Zelig said: 'If you want to do me a
favor, get me out. I won't do anything
for Becker unless lie does get me out."
"I saw Becker next day and told him
that Zelig wanted to get out and would
not do anything unless he did get out."
Rose said he went to the home of the
four gunmen, "Gyp the Blood" and his
pals—and explained the Rosenthal-
Becker situation. He told them, he
said, that Becker would "frame them
up" if they did not "croak Rosenthal."
"They agreed to do it that night."
DELAYED DOING THE JOB
Rose said they had delayed "doing
the Job" and Becker had insisted that
they "hurry it along." Ho told of a
plan to kill the gambler at the Garden
restaurant. It failed, he said, because
Of a suspicion that private detectives
were present and guarding Rosenthal.
. "Becker got hot at this," Rose added.
"He kept asking, 'Why all this stall
in? Why don't you get him?' One
day he said, "Now this is going on
too long. Either you are stalling them
or these fellows are stalling you.*
"I told Becker that a detective scared
the boys oft* at the Garden restaurant,"
Rose continued. "'Detective,* he said;
'wake up and shoot Rosenthal in front
of a policeman. Get through with it;
get it over.* "
MEETING WITH JACK SULLIVAN
The witness then passed quickly* to
the events immediately preceding the
murder. He told of going to "Bridgie"
Webber's gambling place, and thence to
the Lafayette baths, where he met Jack
"I received a telephone message from
Becker," Rose testified. "He asked me
lf I had heard of subpenas Issued by
the district attorney for 'Dollar John*
and if I had fixed It so that *Doliar

before the grand Jury. I told him it
hadn't been fixed.

"I remained at the baths until that

Rose testified that Vallon, Schepps
and himself went to Fourteenth street
and Second avenue and got an automo
bile. Then they went to "Dago Frank's"
"I asked Frank where the rest of the
crowd was." Rose continued.
"He said he had received a message to
come down town to 'Bridgie' Webber's
"Who went out?" %
" 'Lefty,' 'Gyp.' 'Whltey,* 'Dago Frank'
and 'Bridgie.' I stayed behind, wait
ing, when word came in that Rosenthal
had been shot."
Rose said he went to the Lafayette
baths and telephoned to Becker.
"I CONGRATULATE YOU**
" 'Did you hear the news?' I asked.
•Tee,' Becker said. 1 congratulate you.'
" How did yon get the news so soon?'
I asked Becker.
" T got it from a newspaper man,' he
" 'Are you coming down town?* I asked
" 'I'll be right down,' he replied.
"That was about 2:30 o'clock, Rose
said. Becked came down 'about dawn'
and met Rose on the sidewalk with

" 'Don't worry, Jack,' Becker told me.
"The only thing to do now is to lay low

Rose says that he hid at Harry
Pollock's home with Sam Schepps.
Rose telephoned Becker and was told
not to worry, but to stay where he
