DISCOUNTS IT AS

he was ijcecuted for the part he played
in the murder of Herman Posenthal,
will not be permitted to Interfere In
the plans of district attorney Charles
H. Whitman in the second trial of
former police lieutenant Charles
Mr. Whitman holds the confession to
be hearsay and therefore inadmlssable
either in the dereiice of Becker, who is
charged with having instigated the
murder of Rosenthal, or in the prose
cution of Harry Vallon, who according
to the official version of Cirofici's
copfession to warden Clancy of Sing
Sing prison, fired one of the shots that
killed Rosenthal. t wa Vallon's tes
timony and that given.' by "Brfdgey"
Webber and Jack Rose that led to the
conviction of the four gun men.
Becker's Trial Probably liny 4.
The trial of Becker will begin on
May 4, if justice Seabury grants the
motion of Mr. Whitman Wednesday.
Another name brought into the Ros
enthal case by an unofficial report of
"Dago Frank's" confession is that of
"Dollar John" Langer. The report
made Cirofici say that the gun men
went to Rockaway "to dig up Langer"
before the murder of Rosenthal.

Cirofici averred he -was five miles
asvay at thfr-tlme the crime was com
mitted and that "Whltey Lewis" Seid
enshner, although present at the scene
of the shooting, did not" fire any of
the shots. Cirofici made no attempt,
however, to deny that he was included
in the original attempt to slay Rosen
thal, even admitting that two nights
before the gamble was slain he went
with other gangsters to look for their
intended victim. They were frightened
away from Rosenthal on that occasion
by men they thought were detectives.
The condemned man also admitted that
early on the night of the actual killing
he was in the "gray murder car" with
the gun men, but he insisted that he
left them before they shot the gamb
ler. He did not explain why he left the
other gun men Just prior to the shoot
ing, but two reasons were advanced.
One is that he became frightened and
the other that he deserted in order to
bail out his sweetheart, Jean Gordon,
who had been arrested.
Statement Made Jost Before Death.
The statement which was made

EW ORLEANS, La., April 14. The transport Han

for Tampico Wednesday morning, according to offi
cers of the -ressel. Orders wera recepree $ij jtogeaaa at
once and the mea who have been at the naval smsk here
for several weeks hurriedly prepared to embark.
These marines woidd be used as landing parties in
case it is necessary to send men ashore. In the event of a
bombardment of the port being necessary on the part of
the United States, the marines would land immediately
afterwards and take charge of the town. Troops would
follow. The troops now concentrated at Texas City, Tex.,
would be the first to move.
WASHINGTON. D. C, April 14. Orders issued from the navy
department shortly after noon today directed the asscwjjlmg of the
entire Atlantic fleet now at Hampton Roads, at TampKo, Mexico,
and further directed the movement of 800 American marines from New
Orleans to Tarspko.
The orders followed a meeting of the cabinet and came rather as a- sur
prise in all circles, as the president and secretary of state have permitted the
impression to gain currency that the Taropko incident was m a fair way to aa
amicable settlement. .
The orders to the fleet followed a meeting of the cabinet this roorng
in which the president emphasized the necessity for sending a sufficient naval
force to Tampico to back up the demand of admiral Mayo for a salute of die
American flag from the Huerta commander at Tampico, whose anest of
American bluejackets last week incensed the American admiral to. the point of
demanding an immediate apology and salute to the Stars and Stripes.
ALL OFFICERS REMAIN SILENT.
After the meeting there was a conspicuous silence on the part of all
officers, and secretary Daniels hurried' to the navy department where he pe
pared a memorandum of naval orders.
President Wilson . conferred with secretary Tumulty and reports were
current that later in the day a statement covering the American demand for a
salute would be made. ,
The orders to the various ships were merely given to die public by the
navy department without comment at first, although secretary Daniels later
made a statement.
The orders direct that all ships of the Atlantic fleet at Hampton Roads
proceed to Tampico.
The transport Hancock with 800 marines was ordered from New Orleans
to Tampico at once.
The battleship South Carolina, en route from San Domingo, was inter
cepted by wireless and 'ordered to Tampico.
The gunboats Nashville at San Domingo and Tacoma at Boston were
also ordered to Tampico.
The torpedo flotilla at TJensacoIa, Fla., v?as notified to be ready to join
the battleships at Tampico on short notice.
OFFICIAL? FEVERISH IN. HASTE.
Naval officers eagerly transmitted the orders lo the fleet and there was a
scene of activity and anticipation. The feeling that the Washington govern
ment had determined to show the Huerta government its fixed determination to
insist on an apology and public salute pervaded official circles.
It was learned authoritatively that while the investigation of the Tampico
incident was being made, there was a general feeling that the demand of rear
admiral Mayo should be backed up. In the meantime, however, it was deter
mined that negotiations with the Huerta government through charge O'Shaughn
essy should proceed in order to represent to Gen. Huerta the insistence of the
Officials said that while no ultimatum had been issued to the Huerta gov
ernment; the mobilization of the fleet at Tampico was blended to put the United
States in position to enforce one, should the immediate developments make k
SECRETARY'S STATEMENT. '
The- statement issued by secretary Daniels follows:
"Secretary of the navy Daniels this afternoon sent orders to rear admiral
Badfpr, .commanderinchief of the Atlantic fleet, to "proceed at once with all
tiie ships under his command, to Tampico. Admiral Badger is at Hampton
Roads. At the same time orders were issued for the Hancock, now. at New
Orleans with 800 marines, to proceed at once to Tampico. Orders were also
