BEC KER GUILTY
roBvieled for Second Time of Instituting
Murder of Rosenthal?Appeal
or Pardon Only Hope.
New York, May 22.?Twelve men
today decided for the second rime that
Charles Becker was <rhe arch-conspirator
responsible for the murder of
Herman Rosenthal, the gambler,
which nearly two years ago awoke
New York to a realization or corruption
in the police department and
opened a new era -cf police reform.
Becker, once a police lieutenant.
, was found guilty of murder in the
first degree. Only a pardon /or interference
again by the court of appeals
can save him from following
to the electric chair the four gunmen
who shot Herman Rosenthal, the
gambler, early on the morning of July
lt>. 1912. The jury today decided that
the gunmen were Becker's agents.
The fifth ballot decided Beckers fate.
It was taken almost immediately after
the jurors returned from lunch

'or the preparation of his future camj
