HARNESS EBRO RIVER Caught Many Ideas From the Keokuk Development and Has Employed an American Engineer to Make Alterations. NEW YORK, Oct 14.—An Ameri can who has lived the greater part ot forty years in Europe, and who now lives in Rome, Italy, and is getting ready to build a big hydro-electric plant near Barcelona, Spain arrived a few days ago at the Wolcott in the person of Alfred Parrislt. Mr. Parrish has been taking a look at the Mis sissippi dam at Keokuk, la., and he is so impressed with the way the work has been done out there that he is taking an American engineer to Spain to make alterations in the plans for the dams to be constructed there, and to supervise their construction. "I have been interested for many years in introducing street railways in Europe," said Mr. Parrish, "first in the old horse-car days and afterward when the electric street car came along.

"And how," Mr. Parrish was asked, "did you come to take up your resi dence in Rome?" "That," he replied, "has been really the result of the elimination of all the places I wouldn't like to live In—and have tried other places. The objec tion to New York is that It Is too hustling, London is too foggy, and Paris too frivilous. There is Rome left. Seriously, Rome probably is more interesting than any other city in the world to a man who prac tically has retired.

I went to the continent and started in Lisbon and Barcelona. "The electric street railways ot Europe keep fully abreast of Ameri can street railways, that is, when they stick to things of American manufacture. Some of them have a habit of trying German electrical ma chinery, and then they fall behind. The Germans try to turn out as good electrical things as the Americans, but they don't succeed. "I don't think it would he politic for me to discuss the feeling in Rom9 over the war In Tripoli," said Mr. Parrish, in answer to a question, "but I can state what perhaps has not been appreciated fully over here, and that is that a great fundamental factor in the war question is that the Italians, by taking Tripoli when they did, kept the Germans out. That is why the Italians acted so precipitately. The Germans disappointed in getting a foothold in Morocco, looked further along the Mediterranean, past Algeria, to Tripoli. If they had got hold of it, it would have had a tremendous in fluence upon the subsequent history of Europe and of the world.

As the Mayflower anchored every vessel in the fleet fired the presidential salute of 21 guns. The secretary of the navy and his staff went on board the Mayflower and at the same time the president's flag was hauled down from the yacht. Then the Mayflower got under way and steamed up the river, to where the Connecticut was anchored. As the president's yacht anchored, the presiaencial flag was again broken out and as it was car ried out by the breeze, the fleet again saluted. The commander-in-chief, Btaff, di vision commanders and the'r staffs then formally paid their visit to the Mayflower and at 1:55 the president returned the call of Admiral Oster haus. The president and Secretary Meyer returned to the Mayflower, af ter which the president inspected the entire fleet at the anchorage.

Justice Goff was especially angered over the fact that before Attorney Mc Intyre left the court room on Satur day night he was openly threatened by an unknown individual who told him that If he reflected on the wife of Jack Rose he would be killed, Sheehan was called to identify cer tain police orders sent to Becker ana Becker's signed replies, the intention of the state being to have Becker's signature established. It was reported in the court room that Whitman had letters in his pos session signed by Becker, which he claimed would prove the partnership between Becker and Rosenthal and the relations between Becker and Rose, as sworn to by the latter. For an hour Assistant District At torney Moss labored with Sheehan, trying to get him to identify an anonymous letter dealing with the gambling situation in New York as an enclosure he had put into a letter sent to Becker. Moss was finally forc ed to give up and excuse the witness without getting the letter before the Jury. Bridgie Webber was then called to thr- stand. Webber looked pale and worried is he took the oath and settled back in to his chair. He gave his name as Louis Webber and said that he was a gambler. "Did you know Herman Rosenthal?" asked Moss. "Yes, I knew him for fourteen years." "Know Jack Zelig?" "About the same length of time." "Know Lieutenant Becker?" I have known Becker about two years.

Webber repeated the story as re lated by Itose on Saturday of the gun men coming to his poker room. Pre viously, he said that Jack Sullivan had told him and Rose that the other gamblers were to be subpoenaed to corroborate Rosenthal's testimony before the grand jury regarding the payment of police graft. He said that the four gunmen and Rose were in his place and had some refreshments. "Then Rose asked me where Rosen thal was," continued Webber, "and 1 told him I didn't know, tout that 1J would find out. I went over to the Metropole and saw that he was there" and went back and told the boys. They left at once. "I left my place about 2 o'clock and valtced dewn Broadway to 22nd street and back again. About 2:10 I went to the Times Square subway station and from there I went to the Cadillac hotel." "Did you see Rosenthal?" "YeB, I saw" his body lying on the sidewalk In front of the Metropole hotel. After that I went to my place an-1 about 2:30 Sullivan and Rose came in. We had some drinks and talked things over. We stayed there *, r'/f S -ytr r€%s ,,L Bntl1 Becker Sam Schepps was also there. said to us: 'That Rosenthal is making all kinds of trouble. He has gone to Magistrate McAdoo, and is trying to see Waldo, and the district attorney. Now, if he ever gets at Whitman, it will be all off In this town. Why don't you see the hoys and have the croaked?' I said to him that croaking a man was a serious matter, but he got mad and said: 'That's all right, I want him croaked and I will certainly take care of the boys after the job is done.' There was nothing else for me to do, and I said: 'All right, Charlie, if that is the way you feel of course I will get in touch with the boys and have the job done.' 1 went down to my poker room and af ter I got there I got a phone message from Becker telling me to meet him in the Union Square hotel. I went over there and we talked things over. I met him again In the hotel and this time he said to me: 'Bridgie, why don't you get on the job and croak that "I said to him: "Charlie, everything will he worked out all right and the job will be done in a few days. 1 have spoken to the fooys and it will be all right.' Just then Jack Rose and my wife came along in a taxlcab and I got In and we went to the country. On the way I told Rose that Beckef was keeping after me to have Rosen thal croaked and that the job would have to be done. I told him that 1 bad told Charlie that the job would be done in a few days." "Were the methods by which Rosen thal was to be killed discussed?" "Well, Jack did not want the gun men to do the job. He thought it could be pulled oft better in my poker room." "Now I want you to tell the jury what happened in connection with 1 Francis Daddl, Grand Opera Buffo, In the "Secret of Suzanne," appearing at the Grand opera house tomorrow afternoon and eyenlng. nearly 6 o'clock when we went out to Hieet Bec«cer.

Rose broke down and said: 'Charlie, this is terrible, \here will be hell over this with the district attorney on the job.' Becker laughed at him and Bald: There is nothing to worry about. 1 have told you that I would see this through. All that is necessary is for ihe boys to lie low for a few days,' Then Becker told me to give Rose $1,000 to pay the boys, saying that would make $1,600 he would owe me. said: 'All right,' but Rose insisted that there would be trouble. Becker said: 'There is nothing to worry about. Why, I passed the Metropole shortly 'before then myself .and if I could have seen the I would have done the job myself. I told my chauffeur: to drive slowly and had my gun so that I could have done the job.' Beck-1 er then left us and we went over to Eighth avenue when I gave Rose the $1,000." This ended Webber's direct testi mony and Mclntyre began his cross examination by delving into the past life of .the witness who admitted not only running gambling houses, but al-31 having conducted an opium joint on Pell street in Chinatown. Mclntyre failed in an effort to show that the witness, Rose, Vallon and Schepps were opium or morphine users..... Y.M.C.A. NOTE The Drummer Evangelist, October 17 to 27th Inclusive Evan gelist "Billy" Williams of San Jose, California, will conduct a series oij meetings under the auspices of the! Young Men's Christian Association. The meetings will be held in shops, on the streets. In churches and at the association building. Prior to his entering the evangelist field "Biily" Williams was a traveling salesman for a large firm In the east, hence the term "drummer'' prefixed to his title. Evangelist Williams will arrive lnj Keokuk on Thursday. He will come from Alton, Illinois, where he is en gaged at the present "time in a series of meetings. ThiB Ib haB the third time he has been recalled to Alton to con duct spectal meeting. Many testimonials speak very htgn* ly of hlB work in other places. Two of them are quoted below: Charles W. Blodgett, pastor St. Paul M. E. cjiurch, Cincinnati, Ohio, says: "We had him three weeks our church. His life story is like a romance no wonder he reaches men. He been under the rod has sym pathy for the fallen. Evangelist Wil liams will remain in the memory or thousands of this city. Eternity alone will only reveal the good he has done. He ,is no trimmer. He is understood. He states truth In a plain way and while it cuts, the sinner and saint re ceive it with good grace. One must believe that Evangelist Williams Is a ma'n of God."
