BECKER IS IN TOILS;
INVESTIGATION GOES ON

aopanment would Ue exerted to pro
tect them and the actual slayers. Rose
admitted acting as Becker’s collector
of tribute from lawbreakers for years
and Webber and Vallon corroborated ,
him In all of his statements. He de {
tailed how the police graft was split
and involved by name tnree police In
spectors and many minor officers. He
also involved a former city official
and several politicians and it was to
probe these charges that the grand
Jury reassembled today.
The three men who had uncovered
the ocandal slept on cots In the Jury
room of the criminal courts building
all night. In an agony of fear they
had protested to District Attorney
Whitman that if they were sent back
to their cells in the Tombs they would
be murdered by the “System’’ und
Whitman, although he professed to
believe that there was no danger they
would be killed, with the recollection
of the slaying of Rosenthal after he
had become a district attorney's wit
ness in mind, refused to send them
back. He had them placed in a care
fully guarded room near his office
where they could sleep on cots and
today ordered that Instead of being
sent to the Tombs they be kept in the
west side prison for the present. Rose
also appealed for his family saying
there was no doubt his wife, who
could corroborate many of his state
ments, would be killed. The district
attorney ordered four private detec
tives detailed as special guard to Mrs
Rose and they will watch her at all
times.
Rose s story was so amazing that
District Attorney Whitman admitted
today he would not have believed cer
tain parts of it if Webber and Vallon
had not independently related th*
same facta. From the time he first
met Becker in an east side precinct
the aged gambler said their relations
had been mutually profitable. When
Becker went to the head of a “strong
arm squad” and took up the raidimr
of gambling houses the pickings be
came soft for both according to Hose s
atory. He peddled protection and col
lected for it. He paid the money, he
alleges, to Becker, anti the latter
• “split it up." Rose told how it was
supposed to be split and exactly who
benefited by It, but that is still to be
proved.
When Rosenthal squealed. Becker.
Rose alleged, decreed his murder.
Rose B aid that Becker threatened
Webber, Vallon and him with a
“frame up" if they failed to put Ros
enthal out of the way. Rose said he
know Becker could do this; that his
men bad already jobbed “Big Jack
Zelig by slipping a pistol in his pocket
and arresting him for carrying con
cealed weapons. Rose said that Beck
er told him several times that the Job
must be pulled off and that three days
before the murder, he. Becker. Web
ber and Vallon met and went over It.
Webber, Rose alleged, who ordered to
finance the crime and Jack Zelig was
ordered to get the men to carry it out
The quartet who shot the gambler
to death. Rose alleged, were Harry
Horowltx, known as “Gyp the blood;’*
Frank Muller, alias “Whltle Jack
Lewis;" Louis Rosenzweig, alias
C'.roflci, the last of whom is already
under arrest.
Rose declared that he was assured
that the police would be fixed and that
the murderers could make a “Clean
getaway." He said he conferred with
'Becker Just before the murder; that
the killing was shoved ahead two days
because it was found Rosenthal was
going before the district attorney the
next morning to tell all he knew, and
that while Rosenthal’s bead body was
lying on the sidewalk in front of the
Metropole he (Rose) telephoned the
news to Becker from the Times build
ing. a few hundred feet away.
In telling his story to Be< ker. Rose
aald; “My God. it was horrible.” and
Becker, alarmed and fearing he had
weakened came down to meet him
In the shadow of the Murray Hill
baths. Rose alleged. Becker told him.
Webber and Vallon not to worry; that
there would he no real outcry a»
everybody would be satisfied that the
“squealer" had been put out of the
way.
Then Rose said he went to the home
of Harry Pollock, the promoter, and
remained there until he linally sur
rendered to the police under orders
from Becker Who told him he would
be turned loose after being question
ed. At all times. Rose alleged, he
was In touch with Becker and acted
under his orders.
TAFT PAYS TRIBUTE TO
LATE JAPANESE RULER
WASHINGTON. July 30.—President
T»ft dictated the following statement,
on learning or the Mikado’ii death:
“I am greatly shocked at the death
of the Emperor of Japan. It ha* been
my good fortune to have met him a*
. many as half a dozen times and to
• come Into such relation* with him a*
to feel that there was a personal
| friendship between us..
“The Emperor wa* a remarkable
: ruler. He wa* brought to actual pow
er through the Shogan rebellion, and
, his life ha* measured the wonderful
, growth and expansion of the Japanese
i empire The emperor was a hard
' worker and gave great attention to
i the matters of government. His
: i genius for government was shown in
i his selection of general*, admiral*
' and statesmen who have reilected .
glory on the Japanese nation.
“Rarely iu the history of the world
has such progress been seen or can
be so clearly traced through the abil
ity of certain men who led In it and
I who were the emperor's selection
and enjoyed always his suppott. liis
■ distribution of offices, honors and
. titles, was made after careful com
parison of the Importance of the ser
rices rendered.
“No one who know* intimately the
1 history of Japan in recent years will
deny to Mutsuhlto the real leadership
, of his people.”

THE' STAGE
TEMPLE. \
Entertaining all the way, is the
Temple theater bill, this week. While
Winona Winter, billed as the “Cheer
l'p Comedienne." Is the stellar attrac
tion, there is nothing lacking in the
other numbers to hold one’s attention
lu short, it is a program of satisfying
variety, something to please the most
exacting, including a dog. pony and
monkey show for the children.
Winona Winter, daughter of Banks
Winter, the latter author of “White
Wings." and leading lady for Julian
Eltlnge, in “The Fascinating Widow,'
is a clever. pleasing and versatile en
tertainer. She captivated the Mon
day afternoon audience with her work,
which includes character songs, im
personation ami ventriloquism. The
latter was sprung a» a surprise, no
body knowing that she possessed the
ability to “throw" her voice.
“The Suffragette" is a playlet teem
ing with comedy situations, but which
could scarcely offend the most ardent
advocate of voted for women, blank-
Ivn Ardell and Ann Walter are pro
during it. They, Ardell and Ned Mat
thews, and Miss Walter, as his wile,
run for the mayoralty of Cowhide,
Kan., and the campaign gives both a
chance to Bhine. Matthews makes a
speech, in which he point* out how
the women might be expected to run
the police and Are departments and
courts, placing them in a ludicrous
position He win* the election, to the
satisfaction of Monday afternoon aud
ience. apparently. •
Will Rogers. “The Oklahoma Cow
boy," dressed in the rough habit of the
plains, shows that be is master of the
lasso which he twists, swings and
turn into all manner of rings, at the
same time keeping up a chatter of in
teresting comedy.
Singing of the really worth while
variety is furnished bv the Gray trio,
a man and two women, whose voices
blend sweetly. They also give indi
vidual numbers, which serve to fur
ther demonstrate their capabilities
Jack Coogan and Eddie Parks have
a meritorious offering in song, dance
and burlesque, the latter on woman s
manner of dress.
The Marlo-Aldo Trio, two men and
a woman do exceptionally difficult
work on the horizontal bars. Some
good comedy is also given. Acrobatics
are also furnished by Kino, Walsh and
Melrose, with an amusement feature
on the side. Del Fanco's monkey cir
cus. from the London Hippodrome,
includes weil-tralned dogs, monkeys
and a pony. The Mooreoseope shows
the usual series of important world
happenings of recent date.
MILES.
Piquancy and flavor are given the
Miles bill this week by the interesting
electro-scenic novelty. "Visions D Ml
Lola." presented by Clyde Rlnaldo.
It is one of the most elaborate scenic
effects ever accomplished on a local
stage. Scene after scene is unfolded
to the view as a series of curtains
are drawn up. each scene presenting
a different and more alluring view of
dense woods, where vines and flowers
intertwine with branches and where
the hum of bees and singing of birds
rest the senses. This is a garden ot
Eden, for as the last curtain arises,
deep in the sylvan nook, is a beauti
ful woman, impersonating the original
Eve, but clad In snowy tights.
She stands before a white curtain
and colored pictures are thrown on
the screen. The woman's fuce and
form are always visible and distinct,
but her dress and surroundings are
always changing. Now she is a Greek
maiden, again she is the personifica
tion of spring, extending her lithe
arms into the bow* of blossoming and
fruit-laden trees. Each scene fades
into the other so gradually that the
eyes can scarcely note the transfor
mation until it Is wrought. Changing
from a Geisha girl she becomes fur
clad. walking amidst snow, an old
fashioned church in the background
suggesting a Russian winter scene.
Once she is the maid in the moon and
the next moment the statue of liberty.
The scenes and effects are too numer
ous to mention, each a delight to the
eye.
George Hermann, one of the great
est living contortionists, and Park
Byers.-a famous clown, again present
to Detroiters their entertaining nov
eltv, "A Clown's Dream." Hermann
is dressed as a skeleton, he is about
as thin as one. and he works his
joints about as nimbly as though they
were fastened together only by wire,
like a skeleton's. The clown supplies
the comedy part of the act.
The Deßars feature a magical wa
ter fountain, originally presented in
this city by a company of Japanese
magicians. The water spouts from a
sword, from a woman's head, from a
dozen different places on the floor,
seeming to follow the motions of the
magician's hand. Debar also has a
few clever slightof-hand perform
ance*
Artie and Flove Nelson sing, play
the piano and dance, pleasing the au
dience very well; Billy Ros* is a rap
id-fire story teller and pun springer:
James Smith and Rose Brown are
clever singers and dancers. The show
closes with an interesting moving pic
ture playlet The audiences were
large and apprecative of an .excep
tionally good bill.

PUBLIC OWNERSHIP MUST
BE ISSUE IN CAMPAIGN
Cunllaurd lr»w !'•*» *l».
ruent of the unfortunate* who fall
temporarily under their charge. They
do not club the people as they unci!
to do.
’ You can take my record of nine
years in the common council and on
the bench of the poll, e court and rely
upon me to do all that can be done
I in cleaning out graft In the municipal
government. But let me urge It upon
you that you must not allow my op
ponents to shift the Issue away from
municipal ownership. That must be
the principal issue of the campaign.
• What we must do Is to eliminate
the cause of graft. While you have
the old molasses barrel standing In
the yard you've got to have the flies.
And the cause of municipal corruption
lies in the sule of public privileges.
•Standing silently behind every
public official of the city you can
every moment set* the teinptr Satan in
I the guise of a public service corpora
tion It Is more than human nnture
I can stand. Every, now and then some
!of the officials > leld and fall. 1 hen
what happens? The poor man who
has yielded to the temptation that was
too strong for him is punished and his
wife and famil> suffer with him in
the ruin that has been wrought by
this sinister Influences that Is ever
present in oui public life But what
of the rich corporailoniat. Is he pun-
I Ihhed? Does ne suffer? No. he goes
ion in his complacent way laving new
pitfalls for other men coming
honest hearts and hands into the **.7l.
gerous paths of public life.
"The Octroi. I’nited railway, organ
, ized for fifty.live millions of dollars.
I stands today as the chte( source ot
! yraft In our municipal affairs, lntim-
Jldatinn the manhood and the woman-
I hood of Detroit.
; "One thing that stands out in
: this latest bribery scandal is the
I fact that a public utility corpora
tion wanted something and got it.
! The Wabash railroad now has $50.-
000 worth of our property for which
they paid nothing. If they want to
be fair why do they not come back
! to the council, return the property
and agree to have the Seventh-st.
proposition passed on Its merits.
"But, no. That is not the wav the
thing goes What happened today?
The Michigan Central came in with
a petition to lay tracks across a
street. And the common council
committee was so Intimidated by
I the developments of the last week
; that It passed the Michigan's ap
plication without giving the matter
any consideration at all
"Mayor (’odd tried to settle the ;
street railway question sixe years
ago and failed. Mayor Breltmeyer
tried and failed, and Thompson lias
failed twice. Would Thompson set
tle the question now? 1 want to
say that the election of any mayor
I who Is opposed to public ow nership
means delay. 1 hey'll be ready to {
spring something through the Board
lof Commerce that will have behind*
it all the money power of the city
anil attempt to drive you Into a bar
gain with the D. C. R.”
Judge Jeffries said there were sta
tistics to show that it cost only two
•cents per passenger to operate the
[street railway system of Detroit 14
years ago, and tnat the subsequent
; increase in traffic, together with t’.ie
J fact that there has been hardly any
.increase in trackage or cars, must,
have considerably reduced the aver
age cost. Referring to what has
been dine in the way of street rail
' way settlements in Cleveland, 0., and
in labgow and other cities of Great
Britain, he said the thing to do In
Detroit to follow the example of
these other cities and begin build
-1 ing tracks to compete with the D. U.
:R. He suggested a belt line passing
[through the north-end factory district
| and touching the river In the eastern
land western sections of the city, as a
good start and as a line that would
be a valuable factor In any eventual
street railway system.
He predicted that the D. U. R.
would come to terms as soon as it
found the city going into actual com
petition with It, but urged that muni
cipal lines should be built with a view
to permanency and the elimination of
waste effott, and said that the only
thing that now prevents the city from
faking possession of the streets where
franchises have expired is tlie fact
that it can offer no substitute service.
W.lth the proposed belt line in oper
ation and extensions built where they
are most needed, he declared the city
would throw out the D. l\ R. from
one street after another as fast as
the city could build parallel lines to
take care of the traffic.
The first meeting. Monday evening,
was iitlci in the hall of Burkhardt
Fetts, Canfield and Joseph Campau
aves.. in the sixth precinct, of the
Eleventh ward, and from there the
judge went to William Dye's place.at
Milwankee-ave. and f’hene st., in the
elevtt H. precinct of the Ninth ward.
Both places were c rowded with voters
and iu each a Jeffries’ club wan or
ga.itzca. Resolutions were adopted
jin the Eleventh ward meeting criticiz
'ing the Fiee Press and Journal as
"scumlotis sheets'' because of their
I opposition to municipal ownership
and other progressive measures,
pledging the voters to work against
I the inhucnce of the "Republican Jour
nals working for the vote swappers’
league in dictating who shall be the
Democratic candidate for mayor in
the city of Detroit.” and warmly in
dorsi its Judge Jeffries' candidacy for
the Democratic nomination for mayor.
I Simiiui i('solutions were adopted In
the .Ninth ward meeting.
HIGHLAND PARK POLICE

John L. Austin. president of High
land Purk village, wan the author of
a resolution, udopted by the village
council. Monday night, requesting an
investigation of the police depart
ment of the corporation. The mem
bers of the council will do the In
vestigating, a provision in the recent
ly-adopted charter giving them the
power to act as a committee on po
lice. Tne president explained, in of
fering me resolution, that he had
been receiving a number of letters
from citizens, complaining that cer
tain police officials should be Investi
gated on < barges, varyng from petty
graft to threatened assault. There
are Id men in the police department
and they are said to be quarreling
among themselves, making charges
of different kinds against on« an
other. There is a feeling in the vil
lage that the force could be reduced
to advantage.
