Driver of Murder Car Tells
Counsel "Some One in Tombs"
Urged Him to Take Stand
for Lieutenant.
Belief Prevails He Will Admil
Being a Grafter but Deny He
Is a Murderer-Whitman
to Attack Witnesses
for Accused.
Willlam Shaplro, chauffeur of th*
murder car, it was learned yeaterday bf
District Attorney Whitman, has btW
tampered with by emiasarles of "the
H.vstem" winle a prlsoner ln the Tomh?.
This was partly corroborated by a let?
ter written bv Shapiro to his rnimaal.
Aaron J. Lovy, on Saturday. saving he
had been asked by "some one in tlie
Tombs" to be a wltness for Becker.
Who this some one is the District At?
torney ls endeavorlng to flnd out.
Lieutenant Charles Becker will take
the staml in his own behalf, accordlng
to his counsel, John F. Mclntyre. A -
cordlng to others Becker'a testlmony in
a senten.e wlll be, ' I am a grafter. bttl
I had no hand in the murder of Her?
man Rosenthal.'* And some of the--,
think it not unlikely that Becker, to
?ava his neck, may reveal the whole
system of police graft.
Mr. Mcfntyre said he had ahou*
twer-tv wltnesses yet to be put on ihe
stand. and the belief of both Bldea is
that the case wlll go to the- Jury
Thursday or Frlday night.
Defence May Call Chauffeur.
Mr Mclntyre said he wmiid probably
call Shapiro, who would teetify tbal

Whlch, held a smoklng revolver in h'\<
hand a- he ran from the prostrate
body of Herman Rosenthal.
Whoever had the revolver, Shapiro
will testify. held it against his hr-ad
and told him to "diive llke h?ll."
Diatrlcl Attornev W unan said if
Bhaplro tr.,.k the stand and told an..

He said hr would dnfront Shapiro wlth
his own affidavit. ln which the . hauf

of the men who escaped in the murd"r
car. and BBld he did not Identifv Ro?<\
Vallon, Bcbeppa, Weber or an> of the

"I received such a letter.'* said Mr
Levy last nlght, "and it Is now locked

Shapiro. it was learned by the Dle

When District Attorney Whitman

not fear any atory he mlght tell.
"If Shapiro testlfles that Vallon and
