"I shall certainly be in tho court room
'tomorrow," tho devoted wife said today,
alter leaving her husband behind the
bars in murders' row, In tho Tombs.
"I shall go to the train with my-hus-
band to Sing Sing. I want to stay at his
side ns long as possible. I think It Is
my duty to do that, and to be as bravo
ns I can."
1 The death house nt Sing Sing will
ilio Becker's home, beginning npt later
jthau Sunday, the state plans.
District Attorney Whitman does not
ant the responsibility of Decker's pres
ence In this city, when ho places the
punmcn on 'trlaj. The first of them prob
ably will bo tried Monday. Sheriff Har
iburger declares ho will not delay Becker's
jemoval from the Tombs.

"The fact that Becker is rather more In
he public eye than any other convicted,
imurdtjrcr makes no difference to me,"
paid tho sheriff today. "Ho Is simply a

Whtlo state's counsel is said to be
willing to wait until Saturday before tak
ing Decker ' to Slng Sing, Sheriff Har.
iiurger said ho would start with, his
prisoner Thursday morning or possibly
toiflo! r'ov?' afternoon.
The task of tho stato In prosecuting
tho gangstors "Lefty Louis," "Whitney
.owls," "Gyp tho Blood" and "Dago"
"rank, was mado less difficult this after-
loon when William Shapiro, driver of the
'murder car," made what was purported
jto be a complete confession.
Shapiro was closeted with District At
torney Whitman for several hours. For
days his counsel, Aaron J. Levy, had
.urged his client to tell all he knew.
I.SIiapIro feared to do so, said thd lawyor,
(because he believed ho would be killed.
Thinks lie Will Convicts Other.
With Shapiro's confession and his tes-
irlmnn.. rtn (tin ylQnil nc-ulnaf Ihn mnrd...
jcrew, all In corroboration of -what the
htate already knows of tbo movements
of Itoscnthal's "alleged slayers on the
mowing tho gnmbler was killed, District
Attorney Whitman believes he will havo
no trouble convicting tho gangsters.
"If Shapiro tells a story which will help
convict his passengers In tho 'murder
car' he probably will be tried on some
less serious charge than that of murder.
(Whitman is said to bo willing to agree
(to this, but Is not prepared to grant
(.Shapiro complete immunity."
' "B-ed Phil" Davidson, slayer of "Big
pack" Zollg, Is expected to plead guilty
.either to murder In tho second degreo
lor to manslaughter when brought to trial
tomorrow. Whitman, while Dssured that
Davidson will not force tho btate to try
him, Is ready to go on with the case.
Davidson's counsel, James W. Osborn,
dt Is said, will Insist that his client be
'allowed to plead to manslaughter, which
has twenty years' maximum penalty. If
tne Htato insists on seconu uegree murocr
s tho plea, Davidson can be sentenced
to llfo Imprisonment.

WASHINGTON. Oot. 19.-"No man j

whjlly apart from t-cltlJh reasons. 1 want;
tj see Ohio go republican by i largo
majority." said President Taft In u letter
to Fred A. Geler of Cincinnati, made I
publlo today. The president attacked
Governor Wilson and the democratic
party on the turlff question and said Uiat
Ohio would suffer particularly It tho
present tariff protecting tho steel, wool
and pottery business were disturbed.
"You, of course, rcallxo how disastrous
the steel bill, which I was formed to veto,
would have proved to our state," tbo let
ter says.
"In their wool bill the democrats struck
n vital blow nt tho 'wool Industry. Tho
democrats reduced tho duty on raw wool
to 2a per cent and in for tho manu
facturers of woolens thu democratic bill
would havo put them entirely out of
business, leaving farmers with no homo
market for wool and throwing hundreds
of thousands of employes out of work.
"Does It not strike you ns supremely ,
ridiculous for Governor Wilson vaguely I
to Intimate that If ho Is elected he will
make such a gentle reluctlon of tho dutleij
that business will not be Injured when
his party has so recently put Itself ojj
record as nttomptlng such reckless
changes of tho tariff that had I not
vetoed their measures wo would even now
bo confronted with a panic?
"What Would Wilson Dot
"What, think you, could Mr. Wilson do

some of their most prominent speakors
havo' not hesitated bo declare that tho
election of Governor Wilson would mean
financial djsostet. And yet they are,
working for nothing other than tho elec
tion of Mr. Wilson and a. democratic
congi-es. From absolutely dopendablo
sources Information comes to me that
nono of the leaders of; Uio third party be
lieve Jt has the slightest' chanco of suc

for it means a vote for the democrats,

Pipe Line Cases in
Commerce Court
WASHINGTON. Oct. 20. Arguments
were begun today boforo the commumi
court on the application nf five oil plpu
lino companies for an Injunction to ns
.strain tho Interwtato Commerce court
from enforcing ltKnrdor requiring" them
to publish their scale of charges for the
Interstate transportation of oil.
Tho court must dccldo whether the pipe
lines aro common carriers under the law.
Tho petitioners declare thoy nre not, In
asmuch .an they trunsjiort oil only for
themselves, and not for the general pub
lic. They maintain that the lines thoy
operate arc merely plant faotorles to on
nlilo them the bettor to transact their
business In i cflnlng petroleum. Those
plant facilities, they argued, the govern
ment has no control over.
The government malntaliiK that oil Is a
commodity of commerce, and Hint Its in
terstate movement through ilp lines sub
jects It to the power of congress. Con
gress has declared that companies train
pm ting oil In states through ptpo linns
are common carriers, and tho govern
ment counsel inaintnlns they therefore
must conform to the act regulating com
merce. Tho order of the commission has been
extended to make lis effective date De
cember 1. It Is expected that tho com
merce court will pass upon tho applica
tion for Injunction before that time.

that tho entire party was drownod. I
