Shortly before "Dago Frank" Cironci went to the death chair in Sing Sing prison early yesterday he told Warden Clancy that "Gyp the Blood" Horowitz, "Lefty Louis" Rosenberg, and Harry Vallon, an informer, fired the shots which killed Herman Rosenthal, for which crime the four gunmen paid their lives. "So far as I know, Becker had nothing to do . with this case," the gun man also declared. "It was a gam bler's fight'. Cirofici averred he was five miles away at the time the crime was com mitted and that "Whitey Lewis" Sei denshner, although present at the scene of the shooting, did not fire any of the shots. Cirofici made no at tempt, however, to deny that he was included in the original plot to slay Rosenthal, even admitting that two nights before the gambler was slain he went with other gangsters to look for their intended victim. They were frightened away from , Rosenthal by men whom they thought to be detec tives on that . occasion. .' The con demned man also admitted that early on the night of the actual killing he was in the gray "murder car" with the gunmen, but he insisted that he" left them before they shot the gambler- ! The Warden's Statement.' ,f The formal statement of the War den follows: - About eight o'clock Sunday night, Rosenberg asked me to save Frank, saying he had nothing to do with the shooting, he was 'not there. I went over ahl asked Frank why he did not tell the truth, j He replied that he knew what was going on, but was not there when the shooting took place. I advised him to tell the whole story. He said, if he did they would kill his brother. I asked whom he meant by nhey.' He replied that there were fifty men in New York he could name. He said T don't care about myself, it's my family I care for.' "I caused Frank Cirofici to be brought from the condemned cell house to the . principal keeper's' office about 4 o'clock Monday morning. He niade-,, the following among - other statements,' in the presence of myself, Principal Keeper Mclnerny, the chap lain, his mother and sister. They urged him to tell the whole truth- Jcle hesitated .and.,saJicl: f ;... .. i , .-v , "I don't want to maKe any siaie ment for the public. 1 do not fear, for myself,' but I io ? tear for: youy - ' "His; sister replied : ''Don-haveany fear; for;. or .us we will take cared our kv6odCw1ii3p5pUet 'ifl. ; selves: His mother and. aiater eontinuad to urgs Jiim to tell the truth. Be, fiAid '1; did toi.'da the ;shoorig;'Ttirmen; who fired the shots were Gyp, Louie and Vallon.' , , S '' "He saldj I was five miles away at the time. So far as I know Becker had nothing to do with this case. -It was a gambler's fight." X Shapiro Told Truth. ' - "He mentioned several raids k on gambling houses and said that the story Shapiro - told "to" Commissioner Dougherty was true. He said,. 'I told some lies on the stand to prove an alibi for the rest of the boys. The testimony about the conversation with Rose, in the car on the way down was not true. I was in Bridgey Webber's when the arrangements were made. I did not know just what the arrange ments were.' - "I knew something was coming off. J did not see Louie pack the trunk as I testified on the stand. There were guns there, but not the ones they used.' When asked how . he gained this information, he said : 'I heard the boys , talking about it since I was here."- "The conversation then related to other matters not directly connected with the Rosenthal murder.' He ad mitted, his knowledge of and partici pation -in the preparations for the murder, but denied his presence when the actual murder was committed.". According to Mr. Clancy, virtually everything that Cirofici said after he started to make his final statement was voluntary, , His defense of Beck er came absolutely without sugges tion, from any. one, the warden, maintained.5- 'f'.-i ''V" ''-':(""".

The prisoner gave Mr. Riley a statement which contra dicted the later one in some minor details, but it contained little more in formation than had been previously brought out. After making his state ment to Mr. Clancy, Cirofici almost collapsed, and this was the cause of the "sudden change in the warden's plans which sent "Dago Frank" to the chair first instead of "Gyp the Blood." i "Whitey's" .Dying Words. At no time, according to the war den, did any of the gunmen ' except Cirofici tell him they were innocent of ' the crime of killing Rosenthal. "Whitey Lewis", always declared that he did not fire a shot, and it is the warden's opinion that his dying words were, "I didn't shoot at Rosenthal." Mr. Clancy said that "Dago Frank" and "Whitey Lewis'' always believed that they were not as guilty of slay ing Rosenthal as were the men who fired the shots. Incidentally, .while Mr. Clancy was sitting in " Mr. 'Riley's office last night the superintendent expressed the hope that no other man ever would pay the penalty of death in the electric chair in , this state. "I hope," he said, "to see the next legislature pass a law permitting juries to fix life '"penalty, and that this reform will succeed in doing away with' capital punishment." . Warden, Clancy denied reports that he was on the verge of a nervous breakdown owing , to his experience with the gunmen. Governor Glynn was greatly inter ested in the. report of the warden, but he declined to make any comment whatsoever on the case. Both Mr. Riley and Mr. Clancy ex- lpossed the opinion that nothing con tained., in Ciroflci's statement - would have any effect on ' the second trial of former Police Lieutenant Charles Becker: Mr. Clancy . said that the statement was made only after .rela tives of the condemned man had pleaded for the truth. The warden added that he had had no desire to make the statement a legal record, and therefore had not. taken Dago Frank's words down In writing nor placed him under oath. Bodies in New York. New York, April 14. The bodies of the four gunmen executed in the Sing Sing prison death chamber yes terday morning were brought back to this city late in the afternoon. That ,of '.'Whitey Lewis" Seidenshner was given immediate burial in a Long Is land cemetery. Emotional thousands of the East Side fell in behind this cortege and followed It for blocks from an undertaker's to the entrance of the Williamsburg bridge,' over which the hearse and six 'carriages passed on the way to the grave. At the bridge the throng halted, and there they waited until long after nightfall, not crediting the informa tion given by the ' police that none of the other funerals was to be heldl during the day. In front of the homes or under taking establishments to which the other bodies were conveyed hundreds of curious persons gathered. Where "Gyp the Blood" Horowitz lay dead, in the home of a Harlem church sex ton, police reserves were called upon to prevent people from entering and viewing the body. The sexton re sorted to a ruse to get rid of the crowd. He had a hearse back up to the door, and into it an empty coffin was placed and driven away. Mauy were deceived and left., Horowitz's funeral took place this morning and his body was buried In the same cem etery where that of "Whitey Lewis" lies.

The funeral will take place tomorrow and the body will be buried in a Westchester county cemetery. . The family of "Lefty Louie" Rosen berg claimed his body.
