Webber Goolly Tells Plans
of Rosenthal Slaying.
STRONGLY ACCUSES BEGKtR.
Corroborates Testimony of Jack Rose.
Lent Becker $1,000 to Pay Off Gun
men Sent $10 to Widow of
New York. Oct. 15. The moneyed
man of the Rosenthal murderers,
Brldglo Webber, told on the witness
stnnd n story of Lieutenant Becker's
hate for Rosenthal, of Becker's savage
Insistence on murder and of his own
share In the crime that matched the
cold blooded narrative that Jack Hose
supplied last Saturday.
Hose now and then displayed a trace
of human feeling. Webber's story was
as cold and emotionless as If they
came from n frozen heart. Money,
murder, the whirl of a roulette wheel,
friendship, revenue no one thins
moved him more than another. Ills
voice and manner wore precisely the
same when he told about sending the
gunmen to the Metropolc to 1:111 Rosen
thal ns wheti ho admitted that ho had
Immediately sent $10 to the widow.
Ills testimony was effective for the
prosecution In that It not only cor
roborated every shred of Rose's testi
mony, -but also supplied details which
were more shocking in their regards
to Lieutenant Becker than anything
Rose had said. He took upon himself
responsibility for tho Inside manage
ment of the murder that aud the
Sent Money to Pay Gunmen.
lie testltied that Becker borrowed
$1,000 from him with which to pay tho
gunmen and that ho gnvo the money
to Rose, who handed it to "Lefty
Louie" and "Dago Frank." Insisting
that ho had a quarrel with Rosenthal,
lie admitted that he was willing for
the gambler to be murdered when
Becker demanded It. And all through
his testimony was n chill unconcern
a voluntary admission that he never
paused when asked to arrange a mur
der. He merely told Becker that It
was a "serious matter."
He came to court with a memory for
conversations, for the very details of
foul epithets that was as remarkable
as Rose's. Ills story of Becker's com
ment to Rose and.hlin after tho mur
der agreed almost word for word with
Rose's testimony as to Decker's exult
ing description of the dead man and

1 was the only unmarried man in
the settlement nnd I was powerful lone
Koine. When evenln' come on each
family got under their own roof and
sot around the open adobe fireplaces
nnd was comfortable. I didn't have no
fireside and If I'd got one I'd had to
set by It alone, not havln' any wife or
children. Consequences was 1 was
thluklu' o' dlgglu' out when sumpln
happened to keep me.
1 was rldln' along a road when I
seen a gal on horseback ahead o' me.
I caught up with her and said. "How
do," and "It's a line day," and neigh
borly things Uko that. She was good j
lookln and cottoned to mo to onct,
askin' mo where 1 come from, where 1
was goln' and all that. I tolo her I'd
come from the settlement and I was
goen artor some bosses that wus need- j
ed there and I'd bought 'spectiu' to '
make a reasonable profit on 'cm. j
Wnnl, we talked a lot, and 1 got '
kind a coulldcntial. I told her that I
was alone In tho world and Uvln'
among married people. Sho allowed it '
was kind n lonesome Uvln' alone. I
axed her if that was her tlx and she !
allowed It was. Wo got thicker and ,
thicker, aud at last I up and fired a 1
question at her if she would hitch outer j
mo aud set up a home with me. I
She said It was kind o' suddent, but I
wa'n't a bad Idee, aud she'd think It '
over. She was Uvln' with an aunt on ,
sheep ranch aud was goln' there
then. If I'd wait a spell sho might
decide tn double up. and If sho did I'd ,
hoar frVa her. When we come to the
cross roads we separated and 1 went
on nnd bought my bosses.
Comln' back with a dozen bosses, I
brought some men with me, well
armed, for boss thieves was mighty
thick thereabouts, and I didn't know
what might happen. Sure enough.
when we got to the crossroads, lookln'
down the road we crossed, wo saw a
lot o' men gallopin' toward us. But
we was too quick for 'em and reached
a wood before they could git near us,
and In there we had tho advantage
over 'em, for we could see 'em and
they couldn't see us. So wo got our
The day arter I got back Mary Sim

road, come Into tho settlement and
when she found me said she'd beoa

favorably Inclined to It, but It seemed
ounatural to make up with a man on
such a small acquaintance, and she
Jist tliort that If she could get somo
sort of, a Job In the settlement for
awhile bo's we could do some courtln'
it would be all right. I tolo her the
only thing I knowed thero was plenty
of washln', and she said sho was a
good washer and Ironer. So I got
board for her at Mrs. Flnnegan's, she
payln' her own board and keepln' In
dependent. Thore had been so much boss stealln'
goln' on that wo concluded to keep all
the hosscs in the settlement in one
barn when not usln' 'cm, and wo
wouldn't keep 'cm in any one barn
two nights runnln'. Wo thort that In
that way we'd keep the thieves from
flndlu' Jlst whero tho hosses was and
they wouldn't know whero to go to
get 'em. But one night they run in
on us and made straight for tho barn
whero the hosses was. Thero hap
pened to bo only six hosses in tho set
tlement that night, but tho thieves got
Thero wasn't no more hosses tooken
for ten days, and then we lost anoth
er lot, tho thloves goln', as .before, to
tho barn they was in. Wo knowed
that they knowed where the hosses

of the other hosscs seen or heered any

And out whero wo kep' tho stock no
body could Imagine. Thero wasn't no
body In tho settlement but owned
some stock thclrsolvos, and they
wasn't likely to give Information to
rustlers about 'em.
I, beln' somo'at In tho hoss tradln'
lino and havln' lost some hosses, al
lowed I'd go and get somo more. I
seen Mary tho night afore I wont and
got her to promlso that when I got
back she'd marry me. So I went
away feelln' better'n I'd felt for a long
Waal, I bought my hosses and start
ed back nlono with 'cm, 'causo 1
couldn't get no ono to como with me.
I allowed I'd sleep In the stablo with
'em till tho stealln' was over and get
a bead on ono on 'cm. When I got
near tho crossroads I sor a woman
thero, and when I como near her who
should it bo but my promised bride.
I didn't havo tlmo to ask her what
sho was doln thero when somo men
rodo up from different places, and
Mary said to mo. motlonln' to one on
"Allow mo to lntroduco my huB
band." "And nllow mo," said tho feller, "to
relievo you of your hosses."
They tuk.tho wholo lot of om, and
Mary rodo away with 'cm too. I
didn't keer so much for tho stock, but
to bo treated that nway by tho wom
