BECKER SAID TO
BE ON POINT OF
Rumor Persists That Lieutenant Will Turn
Informer on ?"System" if Assured He
Will Thereby Gain Leniency.
HIS LAWYER SEES WHITMAN
Long Conference Regarded as Significant?Indictment of
Three "Men Higher Up*' Practically Certain
Should Official Decide to Tell All?Attempt
to Unseal "Jack" Sullivan's Lips.
After a two-hour conference between District Attorney Whtt*
man and John F. Mclntyre, chief counsel to Lieutenant Charles
Becker, a persistcnt rumor went the rounds yesterday afternoon thai
Becker would not attempt to shield any one, and that if any kind of
an inducement in the way of leniency could be held out to him h<
would tell everything he knows of the relations between the police
It was reported that Mr. Mclntyre's first admission to Becker
was. in subtance. that a very strong circumstantial case had beer
made out against him. His long conference with Mr. Whitman so
early in his association with the case was considered significant. as
it was pointed cut that as chief counsel for Becker he could not be
engaged in a talk of that length with the District Attorney without
some important 1eason.
Becker's story would implicate every man higher up in the grafr
ring, it is believed, and if he consents to tell everything he knows it
is the general impression that he would be dealt with leniently. Mt
Whitman said that any one who did not actually fire the shots that
killed Rosenthal could gain leniency in the case by telling the whole
truth as to the corrupt relations between gamblers and police.
Jacob Reich, alias "Jack" Sullivan, the friend of Becker, who
was so active on the night of the murder, was transferred from the
Tombs to the West Side Court prison yesterday. "Jack" Rose, who
has always had a decided influence over Sullivan, is quartered there
with "Bridgie" Weber and Harry Valinsky. Those three men have
decided to tell all they know. and it is believed that Sullivan was
transferred to give them the opportunity to bring him over to their
A "break" by both Sullivan and Lieutenant Becker. if it should
come. will make certain the indictment of many police officials. it is
believed, especially of the two inspectors and one civilian whose
names have been most prominent in all the graft stories that have
reached Mr. Whitman since the murder.
The District Attorney produced before the grand jury yesterday
a new eyewitness to the murder, in the person of Giovanni Stanish.
This man has never been examined by the police, and his story of the
events in and around the Metropoie just before and after the murdei.
as well as his direct story of the shooting itself. are considered highly
Sixteen witnesses testified before the grand jury yesterday at
an afternoon session. The next session will be held Tuesday, and it
is understood that the necessary basis for the indictment of the four
gunmen directly concerned in the murder was laid yesterday.
Lieutenant Dominick Reilly. who commands one of the special
"strong arm" squads similar to the one formerly managed by Beckor,
was one of the witnesses yesterday, and it is understood that hii
testimony corroboratcd absolutely the testimony which Lieutenant
Daniel E. Costigan gave last week.
The formal call for the citizens' mass meeting at Cooper Union
was sent out yesterday. The meeting will be held next Wednesday
night, and it is expected that a special committee to assist both the
District Attorney and the aldermanic committee will be appointed.
In behalf of John D. Rockefeller and the Rockefeller family.
whom he represcnts, Starr J. Murphy issued a formal denial of the
stories published yesterdav to the effect that the Rockefellers had
backed a putative disorderly house to get evidence against eithe:
white slavers or police grafters.
Police Inspector Edward G. Hughes was reported to be serious'y
sick at his home in 4th street. Brooklyn.
