Whitman Blocks Counsel's Effort to,
Get Grand Jury Evidence and Says
Ten Witnesses Back In
formers' Confessions.
Confessed Graft Collector and Murder
Accomplice Gives List of Gam
blers He Says Paid Monthly.
In answer to a contention by
that the indictment charging Becker with murder Is illegal la that It H
based solely on the testimony of accomplices, Distriri-Attcrmey Whjtman
announced to-day in the Court of General Sessions that he had the cor
rohoralive evidence of at least ten witnesses not connected In any way
willi the crime. This announcement was made in the course of argu
ments before Judge Mulqueen on motions to dismiss the Indictment and
tor permission to inspect the minutes of the Grand Jury.
The tactics of Decker's counsel appear to forecast a fight for delay.
In case the District-Attorney should try to force an early trial of the ac
cused police lieutenant it is likely that his counsel will ask for a change
of venue on the ground that Becker could not be tried fairly In this dty
because of the state ot the public mind toward him and the police au
thorities generally.
With national and State political campaigns approaching and with
the political fortunes of certain of the public officers concerned In the
Rosenthal case closely associated with those campaigns, it is considered
the part of legal wLsdom for Becker's lawyers to put off the trial as long
as possible. All but three of the alleged principals in the murder Ve hi
jail. Those at large are "Lefty Louie," "Gyp the Blood'' and Sam
It was reported to-day that John F. Mclntyre, counsel In chief for
Becker, received a Caah retainer of JJ.25,000 when he was taken into the
case yesterday, and is to get ?too,ooo if he acquits the defendant Mr.
Mclntyre was in a dazed condition for a couple of hours after this story
was. repeated to him, but retused to discuss his fee.
It will prrsbaltly he a wuuk before Beokor la axral.nod for rr marl lie. If
his at '.oi neys are auc4aful in having the lndlclmnui dlamlaaed It will eMY
ins oHiary for tho District-Attorney to get tho Urand Jury to find a supdax
sodlug Indictment. "
Johu F. Mclntyre. Decker's nowly retained chief count!, did not appear
In the proceedings before Judge Mulqueen. Backer was represented by Joan
W. Hart, Llcyd Stryker and George Wnlteslda. Mr. Hart daeotod moat of
his argument to a motion to dismiss the Indictment Ha based hie motion
largely on tho contention that the Indictment charging Backer with lnstlga
tlng the murder of Herman Hosenthal waa algnod by a Orand Juror who
had not heard all tha testimony against Becker. Tola Juror la Oeorge
