IcaUBBi out and inquir-d anxlously as to the details of tlu shooting from the news? paper men about the cntr.tn<e. When they learn-d that Zelig had been kllled by "Bed Phil" they expressed their dis aj.polntment 01 . r.ly, and let it be knovvn that they wer.* in the hunt to make way with the leader of the "Kld Twist" gang. Car Filled, Only One Witnefls. Pafljptta the fnct that the car on which the murder was commitud wns fllled with passengers, the police obtained only ..ne witne'-s to the actual shooting. Thls witness gave his name as Hyman Oiverth, of No 348 East 9th street. The police detained him as _ materlal wit? ness. lt is not known Just where "Big Jack" br.arded the car whh-h was Lo carry hlm to hls death. By the time the C?I reached the neighborhood of 14th street it was erowdt .*, with pas? sengers. many of whom were women. aVaJM persons were even hanglng on to the runninr; board.

Two women were on either side of the'gang leader, although not in hl3 company. As the car neared 12th Etreet some of the passengers no ticed a man runnlng along the Side* walk, a*: though trylng to keep up arit_ the car. When the car did rot stop at t-tfc street the an left the sidewaik and darted into the street. His coat was open and flapping as he ran. and he wns holdlng somethlr.g r]0#fl to his rlpht side. The evidently desperate resol\e I of the man to cntch the car attracted the attentlon of many persons on the street and several turned to watch him.

It apptarcl as though he had se.lect BtJ the moment when the car was j thrown into ternporaiy darkness for thfl shooting. He must have seen "B'.g ' Jack" before he l.oarded the car, as he j showed DO hesltation in aimlng at hls I victtm, but pulled the trlgger almost j slrnultaneously with his leap to the runnlng board. The sudden flash and report of the revolver thot sHinned the paflBflngeri n.-ate.-t ZfltlBj fOf 8 morr.ent. They thought there had been a blowout or a short elrcult. The next instant. how? ever, the "ights twinkled again, and one of the women aitting next to Zelig Horeamed shrilly as he lurched forward in hls seat and then tell half over on her lap. A .'plash of red at the uack of Zelig's head appeared as the blood began to j flow more freely. Tbe woman on whor_ ( the gangman had falkn falnted and ; added to the cxcltement and confusion. j </lher passengers glanced back and* b_w the livid face of the dying man, aaw the wound in his head and real Ized that raurdv had been done. For the next few moments there was wiid panie. Women and men fought with one another ln thelr frantic ef forts to leave the car. The man who had done the shooting took advantage of thia confusion and habble of tonguos and started running east 88 fast as he t o.ild sprint. He would probahly have made his escape had it not been for l'atrolman S.hmklt, of tbe East 2_d Btreet Btatlon, who was escortlng a parade of the Benjamln Schnltzer As Boclatlon. of No. 310 East 10th street, down Second avenue. Ab the parade crossed 14th atreet Schmtdt heard the report of the dlBcharged cartridge and saw the mad scramble of flgures on the surface car. He left the parade and j ran after a fast runnlng man. Schmldt gradually overhauled him and caught him opposlte No. 320 East 14th street. The man offcred no re sistance when arrested and accom ]>anled Schmldt back to the scene of the shooting.

CLEANINC 353 Wtst 54th St ?eej-hed, hls identity belng disclosed i>y several letters found ln the pock ets, the man who had killed him waa .?uestioncd. He told the police his name and other facta about himself, but .;ept reiterating, they say, that he had done tbe shooting out of revenge. Davidson sald he had met Zelig at a ball on tie East Side on P'riday night. and the gang leader had shown great friendllness toward him. Davldson said he. too, grew confldential over the rirlnking tables and let the fact be known that he waa well supplied with money. He did not see Zelig agaln, he said, untll yesterday afternoon. About 8 o'clock, Davldson said, he met Zellg agaln. and after havlng sev? eral drinks the two men atarted to walk down Broome street. Suddenly Z'lig turned to Davidaon and aaid: "Come here a minute," at the same time pushing Davidson into a hallway. "Now pass over that wad of yours," were "Big Jack's" wordt;, according to Davidson. and when the latter remon strated the big gangman placed a re votver to Davldson's stomach, and nt the same tlme brought a blacklack down on hls head. By the tlme David? aon recovered his sense8, he aays, Zelig had rifled hla pocketa of the $4<>0 and I disappeared. Davldson told how he had hunted for Zellg all the rest of the afternoon and finally found hlm on the Second avenue car. How closely the killing of "Big Jack" Zebg ia associated wlth the kllllng of | ilerman Rosenthal can be gleaned from the fact that Distrlct Attorney Whitman gave orders to Captain Fau rot, the fingerprint expert, not to ques tlon "Red Phil" further untll he him? self had had a chanee to question th; slayer of Zelig. It will be remembered that ihe Distrlct Attorney adopted th * same measures when the other men now held in the Rosenthal caae were I first placed under arreat. Little Money Found on Zelig. The story told by Davldson has many wenk links in ita itracture, it eppeared last nipht. .uo far hs can be lr-p.--.il he wafs never known as a man wh>> carried large stims with hlm.

Distrlct Attorney Whitman brck* up her conversatlon with the reporters by taklng her into the Detectlve Bureau untll he could get tlme to talk to her. Say Davidson Is Boston Man. Cangmen had it that Davidaon waa a Boston character known as "Red Ptail," and was known by the police and had done work for them. One man said whal reaily happened was that Davldson came from Boston, elther yesterday or the night before. and when Zellg met him on the street, "Big Jack" said: "Here, you crook, what are you dolng here? You're nothlng but a stool. any way, and 1've got my eye open for you." "A stool. am I?" Davidson is said to have anawered. "How can you talk about stools, when you're a atool for Becker and hls crowd0'* Whlle Captain Faurot waa flrin-f queoboai at Davldson before the ar? rival of Mr. Whitman the man got badly confused. He could not rernem ber Just how he knew that Zellg waa ln the nelghborhood of 14th atreet and Second avenue. Nor could he explaln how it was that "Big Jack" had re? celved a telephone message a few mln? utes before he went to hlB death. whiie ih a restaurant at No. 74 Second ave? nue, asklng him to go to 14th Btreet and Second avenue. Davldson siillenly protested that he knew nothlng about this telephone message. although he himself left 14th street and Second avenue Just in time to meet the car on which Zellg was riding. When attempts were made by news paper men to learn from the proprletor of the restaurant what conversatlon had taken place over the telephone, nothing could be learned 'exeept that Zelig had said: "All rlght. kld, 1*11 hop on a Second avenue car and meet vou there ln five mlnutes." He then ran out and got on an approacblng northbound car. That was the last seen of him by those ln tho restaurant. who were told of hla ueath wlthin flve mlnutes after Zellg had left them. Asked aa to where he got the revol vei wlth which he did the shooting, Davidson eald he had gone 10 Jersey Clty after Zellg h_.d robbed hlm and bought the weapon. Thla statement will be closely investigated by Mr. Whitman. Shortly before midnight Deputy Commlssloner Dougherty arrlved at Headquarters and went into the room where Mr. Whitman was closeted with Davidson. At about the same tlme it was announced that Commlssloner Wnldo had been roused from hin bed and was on hls way to Headquarters. When the body of Zelig waa eearehed aeveral blood stalned letters wera found. The following from "Whltey" Lewls, ln the Tombs, was the flrst found: Tombe I'rison.
