Povverful Factions in Rosenthal Case Start
Desperate Rivalry to Decide on Lieu
tenanfs Chief Counsel.
Tliose Who Raised It Ins;st on Naming Attorney?
Wcbf-r Asserts an Inspector's Representative Has
Warned Him to Stand Pat?Aldermen
Vote $25,000 for Inquiry.
The powers, friendships and enmities bchind Lieutenant Charlos
Becker were engaged yesterday in an involved snarl over the ques
tion of what lawver should be retained to defend him at his trial for
th murder of Herman Rosenthal.
John F. Mclntyre, William Travers Jerome and Martin W.
Littleton, three noted criminal lawyers. were mentioned yesterday
as possible counsel for Becker. Mr. Mclntyre had a conference with
the accused police orncer in his cell in the Tombs.
Mrs. Becker and Becker's brothers are reported to have urged
him to retain Mr. Mclntyre. but John VV. Hart, who is still his coun?
sel. is said to be in favor of retaining Mr. Jerome. Congressman
Littlcton's name is said to have been advanced to Becker by power
ful men wbo are supposcd to be his fnends.
The fact that Becker's chief counsel has not yet been retained.
or even selected. is due to Becker's overpowering fear that the police
'system" will sacrifice him to save itself.
It was stated yesterday as a fact by a man who has been close
to all the developments of the case so far that a defence fund (f.
$50,000 had already been raised for Becker, but that the men who
had secured the fund insisted absolutely on the right to select the
lieutenant's chief counsel.
"Bridgic" Weber. who is scheduled to become one of the corroW
orators of the murder and graft story told by "Jack" Rose. has sent
word from the West Side court prison, where he has been held, that
two men prisoners. who say they represent one of the policx in
spectors whose name has been mentioned as one of those "higher
up," have tried to induce him to stand pat.
Weber's story is that these two men have insisted he will ' ?
a doomed man if he stands by Rose. They have told him, he says,
that the "ring" is satisfied to sacrifice Becker and save itself, and that
there will be no limit to the pressure that will be brought to bear to
keep the scandal from reaching any one higher up than Becker.
Becker was arraigned yesterday. when his lawyers formal'y
withdrew the plea of "not guilty" for the purpose of entering motio ;s
to dismiss the indictment. Curious crowds surrounded the Criminal
Courts Building for hours after the arraignment, hoping to get a
glance at the police orncer.
Harry Pollok, in whose house "Jack" Rose hid while the police
were looking for him, was subpcenaed by District Attorney Whitman
to appear before the grand jury on Thursday.
The Board of Aldermen, in special session, authorized the ap
pointment of a special investigating committee of nine members, o(.
which Alderman Henry H. Curran will be chairman. to go into thf
auestion of police system graft. An appropriation of $25,000 was
voted. and the resolutions were adopted unanimously. It is expected
that the fact that the Tammany members, led by Alderman Frank
Dowling, voted for the inquiry will gain the Mayor's approval of
the investi^ation resolutions.
Out-of-town reports on the whereabouts of the three accused
men stil1 at large came from Boston and Worcester. Mass., and from
Auburn and the neighborhood of Kingston. in New York State.
