The "Big Bull" Insisted Otlj
Calling It to Make This
One Fact Clear.
Delegates Had Real Fire in
Their Eyes and Theyre

OlIICAOO, An: 8. The settees and
chain which were taken out of the
lobtiles of the Chicago hotels In antici
pation of the nomination of Theodore
Roosevelt as the Progressive candidate
for the Presidency are all baok In their
places. Men In blue checked blouses
ar tacking down the green carpets
which were taken up a week ago to be
raved from th" pawing hoofs of the as
sembled Bull .Moose.
If any chairs or settees were removed
to make room for' the candidacy of
Hiram Johnson of California to be Vice
President they are back, too. Also car

nothing had happened since Monday
go though there were only iwo political
parties In the Culled States Instead of
three, and a lot of others whli'h don't
Xo matter how little one may care
for the reason, the mmhod. the manner
of Its existent e. there Is no man so
cynical In Chicago to-day who has
watched this K 'osevelt-Johnson conven
tionwho does not believe thit It Is
going to be more than a bluff made
good this fall.
The 631 so-called delegates who nom
inated Roosevelt and Johnson yester
day had real fire In their eyes. Men
and women do not look like that, do
not have that queer Mrs tied tone In
their voices, unless there Is in t su
hkaTveast through the other peop I
they meet between now and ele-tion ;
It was not necessary to hold a con
vention to nominate Roosevelt and
Johnson. It coulJ have been done by a
postal vote much cheaper, but the
savage eagerness of some of the people
to have a political organisation dif
ferent from those established could not
have been Shown without such meet

If it accomplished nothing else, the
progressive convention has explained

Men and women prominent In io
clety who own real estate In the Ten

Alderman II. H. Curran called atten
tion to-Jay to the fact that owners
of houses In which gambling Is con
ducted are liable under the law and that
such houses are actually owned by
persons high In social clrclea.
Alderman Curran aald:
"The purpose of our investigation 1
not to get a hunch of grafting pollce-

"It Is true that the name of some of
the persons most prominent In New
York society may appear In th list of
owners of houses used for auch pur
poae. If there are any eruch, they will
be among the first persona called by
the Investigating committee. 1 would
not be surprised if some of the wit
nesses were persons who are usually
written of In the society columns of
"These persons should be willing to
come forward and explain to the com
mittee why their property la put to
gambling and other Immoral use. If
they know of the facta they ought to

their knowledge they ought to be glad
of onhOi to explain."

Brokaw Is aoouaed of showering un
due attentions upon other womer whose

Sam Paul.Mox Hochstim and Martin
Engel Among Those Questioned
About Rosenthal Murder Sus
pects and Graft System.
Three Politicians Also Marked by
Evidence Gathered in Seven
Months' Hunt Under Whitman.
When the witnesses summoned to appear before the Grand Jury
investigating the Rosenthal case assembled this afternoon s sensation
was created by the appearance of Martin Engel, the veteran dive keeper;
Mox Hochstim, a partner of Sam Paul, the gambler; Sam Paul himself
and. a little company of persons connected with the Lincoln Hotel at
Fifty-second street and Broadway, recently raided as 4 disorderly house.
These persons were mixed up in the throng that had been called to
give testimony upon which to build indictments against "Whitey" Lewis,
"Lefty" Louis, "Gyp the Blood" and "Dago Frank, the four gunrnM
accused of the actual murder of Herman Rosenthal. But Martin Engel
and Mox Hochstim have not heretofore figured as directly concerned to
the Rosenthal murder, and their presence brought out the fact that the
. x'strict-Attorney has a side graft issue on his hands.
Information has reached detectives employed by the District-Attorney
that, following the murder of Rosenthal and the arrest of Jack Rose
and "Bridgie" Webber, a movement was inaugurated looking to the
ullection of a fund of f75,ooo from divekeepers. The collection of that
lund, which was meant to bulwark the so-called "syndicate" of dive
keepers, was in the hands of Max Hochstim, MaiKn Engel and Sam
Paul, ccordltlf to the District-Attorney's advices.
Outlet this proliably grew the nimnrialde. graft line was indicated by the
