Story.
Now Yurk, Nov. IS.?-The cane for
the defense In the trial of the four
alleged gunmen accused of ihootlng
and killing the gambler, Herman Ho
senthal, eras oompleted today. Nearly
a dozen witnesses testitied iu support
of the Claim of the accused that Har?
ry Valien and "Bridgie" Webber and
an unidentified stranger had fired
the fatal shots at the gambler and
that three of the defendants, "Gyp the
Blood," "Lefty Louie" and "Whitey"
Lewis were on the scene only as in?
nocent spectators, while the fourth,
"Dag* Krank," was not there at all.
"Dago Frank," a diamond pin Hash
l?g fr6m his tie, a gold watch chain 1
i
dangling from a waistcoat of the
latest cut, told on the stand as the
first witness of the day the story that
purported to be hlskulibi on the night
of the murder. He left "Gyp," "Lefty"
and "Whitey" at "Hridgie 1 Webber's
poker rooms just after the mysterious
stranger had invited them all to go
to the Hotel Metropole, where Kosen
thal was staying, to see Jack Rose,
he tald. lit* went to the home of his
girl, Jean Georgen, he swore.
When he got there he found that
she had been arrested and he went to
the police station to bail her out. It
was not until then that he hoard of
the murder of Hosenthal, he declared.
Then followed testimony from the
lips of an *old woman Which corrobo?
rated the stories told yesterday by the
Other three defendants that Webber
and Vallon w?re the real gunmen in
the case. The witness was Mary
Kydd, who was selling newspapers
near the Metropole on the morning of
the murder and who swore that she
saw four men Atting the description of
Jack Hose, Sam Schopps. Webber and
Vallon In :> group near the hotel and
that the shots wore fired from that
group. She did not see the four de?
fendants there ;it all, she said.
John Hlckey, a bartender, swore he
saw Kos. nthal shot at by a man whose
description in some particulars titled
the gunmen's mysterious stranger"
and in others "Bridgie"
saw throe other men lire but could
not s^e their face?, he paid. A bur
ia-r testified that he saw "Bridgie"
running from the scene.
Giovanni Btanish, eye-witness for |
tin- state, was called in rebuttal before
Court adjourned and while he was on
i
the stand Hose, Webber, Vallon and
Bcheppi were brought into the court
room and lined up against the rail?
ing in front of which the prisoners
were sitting. Stanish swore he had
not H'.*en them at the Metropole,
The prisoners turned in their seats
and the sneers and savage glares that
passed between tho two quartettes
who faced each other in one room
for tiie first time since their arrest
excited the keen interest of the spec?
tators. The informers will be called
in rebuttal.
it was upon the understanding that
they llrcd no shots at Hosenthal that
they were given immunity from pros?
ecution.
It is expected that the case will be
In the hands of the jury by Tuesday.
The lawyers indicated today that they
would spend all day Monday in sum?
ming up.
Tax Dodging.
The matter of the returns Of prop?
erty for taxation is more and more
shocking every year. The statement
published yesterday from the ab
BtractS of the auditor show that the
property in this country, which In
ten years has more than doubled, is
very little more than it used to be.
There Is tax dodging, and always
will be if we do not find some way
to make the burden of taxation fall
n?or< equally, and each one to pay
his ihare. If i' Is dumped on the
/nan who owns property, it forces
him ir. the dlrcctlon of acquiring a
form of property that is going to be
Invisible, or towards lying about the
\ulue of what be has and either
u1 thete tendencies are most de
ploral le. There If no excuse for us
o ('.edge the issue just because it
i d bsrd problem to figure OUt. The
State and the county are suffering
an-' che remedy is needed very badly.
