Westminster Abbey Preacher
Vividly Pictures Atrocities
to Students at Yale.
New Haven, Conn.. Oct. 13. Canon
Herbert Henson of Westminster Abbey,
who Is making a tour of this country,
was the preacher at Hattell Chapel to
day. To-nlcht In an address to Yale
students he discussed at length some of
the barbarities that have been practised
on the natives of Peru by those who are
connected with the rubber business In
that country.
Canon Henson said In part:
Keports rerently recflvcit by the Brit
ish Government prove that 30.000 of the
native Peruvian Indians have been
plaiiKhtered by th promoters of th rub.
her company that enslave them and
compels them to hnndl rubhr for them.
Ninety per rent, of the entire popula
tion bear ertil scars to attest to the
brutality of the directors of the rubber
monopoly and hundreds of the poor In
dians have been flogged to death for
trivial rausen.
Little children have been thrown Into
forests and allowed to die. little boys
have been slowly but completely roasted
to death, and girls and boys dying
from the awful treatment they have re
ceived, have been toosed to the dogs to
The horrors of the brutal tyranny of
the rubber masters cannot be exagger
ated. NTnety-nlne per cent, of those flogged
have been treated so ns a means of
terrifying them, not to punish them for
offences committed. Their only offence
was failure to work rubber fast enough
to satisfy their masters, who have no
right to their services, but who pounce
on them and compel them to work In
the rubber regions.
The butchery, massacre and brutality
and lust practised on the simple minded
natives eijual the massacre of St. Har
tliolomew and will go down In history
ns fully as disgraceful. The native In
dians have been used as chattels be
cause of love of money, the reigning
Idolatry of the Anglo-Saxon people.
The Peruvian Government has exer
clsed no nuthorlty of a civilized nation
In regard to the outrages and whole vil
lages of the natives have been wined
Where there were 50,000 natives in
this region ten years ago only about
10.000 can be found now. The path
through the forests where these poor
workers have been murdered resembles
n battlefield.
Although the Monroe Doctrine Is In
vogue It has not been applied to check
the wholesale brutality In Peru.
Two conclusions may be reached
from the situation.
First is the need of some security
for the uncivilized tribes of the world.
The story Ih Intolerable and the out
rages must be stopped. The public
conscience of Great Britain has been
shucked by the Inability of the British
Government to convict and bring to
Justice those guilty of the awful crimes.
Second Is the neei' for creating pub
lic opinion to meet the need of the un
civilized peoples. In other countries
similar cruelty has been and Is prac
.tltnckrit. Appnrrntly, l Friends of
Hum Hp llml Arrested.
Shot down by unidentified men, Po
liceman John .1. McGovern, attached to
the Second precinct in Newark, died
before an anjbulance reached the City
Hospital with him last night. Two bul
lets had entered his body, one piercing
his heart and the other lodging In his
The only clue which detectives have
was furnished by John McConnell of 15
Crane street, In front of whose home
the shooting took place. He was at
tracted by an argument on the street
and looking from a window says he saw
the policeman with a prisoner who ap
peared to he an Italian.
The other men were walking behind.
Suddenly there were four shots. Mc
Connell saw the policeman fall to the
ground and the three men run off.
At the hospital It was found that
McGovern's revolver was gone. The
police believe that the three men at
tacked hltr nnd, taking his gun away,
used It to commit tho murder. Tho
shooting was In the heart of nn Italian
McGovern was known to be of a
quiet disposition, was 35 years old nnd
unmarried. He lived at 1S5 South
Orange avenue and had been In the
Police Department only a few years.

Chief Counsel Hints Case May
Go to Jury on State's
Lieutenant's Attorney Charges
BifT Man Stopped Him With
Warning in Court.
John F. Mclntyre, ohlef counsel for
Lieut. Charles Becker, said yesterday
that there was a possibility that Becker
would put In no defence but would let
tho case go to tho Jury on the evldencn
introduced by the prosecution. His
statement was made In reply to a question
regarding a report that the lieutenant
would take the stand in his own defence
and that Mrs. Becker would lie a witness
for him.
We, may contend," Mr. Mclntyre said,
that there Is not enough evidence to
warrant a conviction. If tho State's
case at conclusion isn't any stronger than
It Is now In the eves of the law I don t
think the defendant has much to answer."
Mr. Mclntyre said he had !eon threat
ened In the court room at the close of
Saturday night's session and that he had
sought protection for the trip to his
office. The court room was cleared except
for about six men. Including himself.
His associates, lawyers Hart, Stryker
and Whiteside, had gone.
With his papers undr his arm he
stepped Into the main court room and
was confronted by a big, heavy set man
who put his face olose to the lawyer's.
You ," Mclntyre declares this man
said. "If you reflect on the wife of Jack
Rose I'll blow the top of your head o ff."
Mr. Mclntyre said he was tired and that
his nerves were unstrung as a result of the
long session. Ho admitted he was fright
ened. But he said he made as strong n
bluff as he could, answered the man in the
vocabulary tho other had used and stood
his ground,
He then called to a friend whose name
he would not disclose- and asked him
if he had heard the threat The friend
said he had and would "stand by him.
The maker of the threat thereupon slipped
out of the court room.
Mr. Mclntyro looked up Jackson Becker,
a brother of Lieut. Becker, and they went
out of the Criminal Courts Building on
White street to Elm and thetico t Frank
lin street. Mr. Mclntyre had a feeling
that somo ono was following him. He
stepped with Becker into a saloon at
Franklin and Elm streets and saw several
men hanging around outside.
After waiting a few minutes he and
Becker walked over to Broadway and
took a car to Mr. Mclntyre' office. The
lawyer is of tho opinion that men followed
him toward Broadway. He was in his
office some time and, Mr. Becker leaving
him there, he went home alone in the sub
way. Mr. Mclntyre described the man who
threatened him as being between 40 and 45
years old, close to 0 feet in height and
weighing about ISO pounds, of swarthy
complexion. Mr. Mclntyre thinks ho has
a duo to the ina'i's identity.
Sinco he got the stay for the taking of
testimony at Hot Springs, Mr. Mclntyre
says, he has received about twenty threat
ening letters. Almost without exception
they threaten him with death if Lieut.
Becker is acquitted. He has notified the
Post Oftlce Department and also has
called the attention of the Police Depart
ment to the letters.
Ono of these letters was mailed to Mr.
Mclntyre in care of the District Attorney's
olllco und whs reiiiailcd to his own ofllco
ut -5 Broad street. It reads:
Juhn F Mctnturc-
Am it ("nook You put up the murder of
Jack Zellg. If Pecker Is impUtled, "noe
tw unto you " A bullet for yours. If Becker
is comicted and yuu "stay" hu execution
j oil will die you shall-hefoie he does.
No crook Is writing this, nor is he ,1 mad
man. Mullet may tie swinei or later, out
it will lie.
rids letter was dated October 7 and
was (xisted in Brooklyn,
A letter dated October 8. msted at the
General Post Office in Manhattan, was
typewritten. It reads;
You hud better get out of New York
as quickly as you can. You are going to
get killed sine as hell. ou will never
live to enjoy any money that you get out
of the Becker case. Becker Is Just as good
as a dead one. If he ever gets out we will
get him. Our Dago friends are going to
put you out of the wny. You may think
this Is an idle threat, but when you wake
up It will be in hell, This is the only warn
ing you will get. Becker and you are marked
men. II S. ,t V.
Mr. Mclntyro issued a short formal
statement with regard to his attitude
toward Justice Ooff, who is hearing the
Becker trial. Tho statement follows:
I desire to say In regard to that which
appears In the papers from time to time
that I am not Intentionally disrespectful
to Justice (ioff I have no such purpose.
I am bound to safeguard every legal rlcht
to which my client is entitled In law.
I want to add that I have the most sincere
esteem for Justice (ioff I have always
admired him. I have known him per
sonally for thirty years and our relations
have always been most cordial. The heat
of a trial or the zeal of counsel sometimes
give the npiiearance of a strained relation
between Judge and lawyer
Mr. Mclntyro characterized the position
of Jack Roso as "practicully that of an
assistant district attorney." Hu said
Rose had been allowed to interrogate
witnesses alone and that Morris Lillian
had been thus questioned by Rose for nn
hour, with 110 ono else present. Mr. Mc
lntyre said he never heard of such n thing
in liln experience ns an Assistant District
Attorney nnd as a lawyer.
Speaking of Lulian, who already has
testified for the State, Mr. Mclntyro
turned to ono of his assistants, (leorgo V.
Whiteside, and had him read what ho said
was Lubau's record.
"This man," Mr. Whiteside said, "is
under three separate indictments in
Brooklyn on a charge of forgery. Thn
District Attorney of Kings county lias n
Inrgo stack of checks this man has forged.
I have seen those checks
"Luban was tried beforn Supremo Court
Justice Dike last December and was sen
tenced lo seven years in prison. He is
out on bail pending an appeal
"Tho man is known also as Louis J.
Limon. Ho worked with his brother Jake
and a woman Tho method adopted was
for the woman to open a small account in
a bank. The men would then rob the
mails of letters addressed to business
houses and would abstract the checks
contained in these letters They then
would eras? the name of tho payee by the
use of acid and substitute the name of
4. UtuoBftaA Um toiwi would
deposit the checks and would draw against
them, Hiis began about 100''.
"Luban is an expert photo-engraver.
When he was called to testify, trial on ono
of tho Indictments wns set for Friday.
Another confederate of Luban, a man
named Bernstein, Is in prison."
Mr. Mclntyro thought tho defence
had done well tinder the circumstances
in the cross-examination of Jack Rose.
He said that Roso had admitted that he
was absolutely without conscience-and
that he never had had any. Also it ap
peared Rose did not repent his part In tne
"I could not hope to break down hi
story," Mr. Mclntyre said, "for there had
been dress rehearsals of It, All I could
do was to attack him when he lost his
cues. But when he lost his cues he came
back to them likoa veteran actor. I could
merely establish tho probabilities, and
Mr. Molntyre did not regard several
part of Rose's story a probable. Ho
raised the question as to whether or not
a man of Becker's experience in detecting
crime would go about things in the open
way ascribed to him by Rose.
As examples of the improbable things
descrlbeil by Rose Mr. Mclntyre men
tioned Becker's alleged statement that
if Rose didn't attend to the matter of
"croaking" Rosenthal he would do it him
self; that the job should be done, even In
the presence of a policeman; that when
Becker saw Rosenthal's body he said
he had a notion to cut out the tongue nnd
hang it up in Times Square as a warning
to squealers.
A tniin who Is about to commit a crime,
Mr. Mclntyro insisted, never stands upon
the housetops and announces his Inten
tion, and the very meaning of conspiracy
under the law indicates something done
in a secretive way. if Hose's story is to
be believed, Mr. Mclntyre went on, the
jury will hnve a perfect right to believe
that Lieut. Becker was insane at the time
of the statements attributed to him.
The theorv of the crime as held hv the
defence lays especial stress on the testi
mony given by Hose regarding the gather
ing at Dora Gilbert's apartment on the
night of the murder. Rose swore that
ten bottles of champagne were consumed.
Mr. Mclntvre finds only five or six persons
to drink it Then, ho continues, citing
Rose's story. Rose. Vnllon and Scliepps
went to Sharkey's and drank more, and
nnauy went to nriugle viennor s place,
where there was a "llelshazrar's feast,"
with "the best in the land" to eat and
Weblier came in and announced that
Rosenthal was at the Metrnpole. It looks.
Mr. .Mclntyre finds, as though the murder
wns done in consequence nf excessive
"That is not my defence," he added,
"but it is something that the jurors will
At the conclusion of the people's case
Mr. Mclntyre said he probably will nsk
that the testimonv given by Rose le laid
before the Grand Jury and that an in
dictment for murder lw found against
him and ncninst Vnllon. Schepps and
Bridgie Webber
Mr. Mclntyre expressed the opinion
that the trial would lie over this week
District Attorney Whitman expected
last night to put Bridgie Webber on the
stand this morning. Webber's direct
testimonv is expected to take about two
hours. If the cross-examination of Web
ber does not take too much time the
prosecution may be able to put on the
next witness, probably Harry Vallon,
late to-day.
Mrs. Rosenthal will be a witness for Hie
prosecution, but it is likely that there
will bu seven or eight witnesses before
In the afternoon, the Becker jury rode
in a six seated sightseeing automobile
under guard of Capt. Lynch of the court
squad nnd six assistants through Man
hattan and out Jerome avenue. On
their return the jurors came down River
side Drive nnd saw the warships. Thev
were in bed short Iv after 11:30 o'clock
last night. All are in excellent health.
Lieut. Becker sent out word from the
Tombs that ho had no statement to make
and that he was entirely in tho hands of
his counsel.

Washington, Oct. 13. Advices re
ceived In Washington Indicate that tho
Mena revolt In Nicaragua, Just ended,
was Intended by the men behind the re
volt as n signal for antl-Amcrlean up
risings nnd attempts tn overthrow the
Onvernments of Honduras, Salvador
and Guatemala. The success so confi
dently expected In Nicaragua was to be
followed Immediately by similar move
ments In Honduras and In Salvador And,
If circumstances should warrant It, In
Guatemala. Thus practically nil of
Central America was to have been
thrown Into a turmoil which Its plan
ners Intended tn make riirpnss any pre
vious movement of the kind.
The plans for this general revolt were
formulated by groups In New Orleans,
La.; San Jose, Costa Rica and San
Salvador. One of Its chief objects was
to eliminate the Influence of the United
Suites In Central American affairs. The
revolutionary leaders. Including the
would-be Presidents nf the countries in
which trouble was to be started, had
convinced themselves that the 1'nlted
States Government had been carrying
on a gigantic bluff In Latin America
and that If the test came 1'ncle Sam
would He down. Consequently they ex
pected, with n good start In Nicaragua,
to sweep the board clean regardless of
diplomatic opposition from Washington.
It was not believed by them that Presi
dent Tnft would enforce such a vigorous
policy ns turned out to be the case.
Gen. Mena In Nlcnragua wns picked
by this group to begin the antl-Amerl-can
uprising. According to Information
received here, the real powers behind
the great plan nev.er entertained any
Idea of letting Mena become President.
They Intended simply to use him to
gain the upper hand of the Diaz Gov
ernment In Nicaragua and" then see to
It that one of their own number was
chosen President. Gen. Mena himself
wns of coursv Ignorant of this part of
the scheme and begnn his revolt on
July 29 with the sole purpose of taking
Diaz's place In the President's chnlr
by means of the Nlcaraguan nrmy,
which as Minister of War he controlled,
nnd the munitions of war, which he as
a Government official had brought
secretly Into Nicaragua. Mena was In
duced to believe that the time was ripe
by his coconspirators, who argued that
Minister Weltzel wns bluffing his way
In Managua and that In a crisis the
United States would not support him.
Mena was especially pleased with his
prospects, because he had received as
surances of substantial support from
German, British and Italian Interests In
Managua, all of whom knew it to bo to
their Interest to get n man like Mena
In control. Previous experience with
Menn, Including 11 denl by which nenrly
$30,000,000 of paper money was Issued
secretly, the spoils being divided be
tween Mena and his l-'uropenn backers,
had shown that he was a man with
whom they could do business Just as
was done In the days of Zelaya.
The reform In the administration of
the tariff laws Introduced by the Amer
ican agents of the bankers who placed
the loan In Nicaragua contributed to
the already deep seated Jealousy of the
growing American Interests In the re
public nnd the anti-American revolu
tionary movement was secretly wel
comed by the Europeans. As the revolu
tion progressed and anarchy held sway
In the cities held by the rebels, the
Kurupeans, olllilals nnd private citizens
did not hesitate to run to the Ameri
can Legation and demand that the
United States afford protection for the
life und properly of British, German,
Italian, Dutch and French citizens.
Menu previously hnd taken Gen.
Zeledon, Minister of War under Zelaya,
as his ally but he received nn unpleas
ant surprise when the city nf Leon took
advantage of the movement started by
him to rebel against the Diaz govern
ment. Into Leon poured scores of pro
fessional revolutionists and political
exiles from the neighboring republics of
Costa Rica, Honduras, Salvador nnd
even from Guatemala. All proclaimed
themselves "generals" and leaders, nnd
Mena soon saw that his personal am
bitions would receive no consideration
nt the hands of this group which had
flocked In. He then tried to make an
Independent peace with tho Govern
ment of Nlcnragua, Ignoring his sup
posed allies, but tho effort fated. Soon
he became HI and this fact, coupled
with the knowledge that he had been
used as tho Instrument of others,
brought Mena's surrender to Admiral
Southerland at Granada and his vol
untary departure from Nicaragua. He
now lies 111 at the American hospital,
Ancon, Canal Zone.
The vigorous action of the American
forces In Nicaragua brought an early
damper to the spirits of the leaders
among the horde that had hoped to sen
Mena win success for them. Mena's
surrender, the taking of tho Ilarranc.i
by the Americans, the death of Zeledon
and finally the American advance upon
Leon all convinced them that the game
was up In Nicaragua. A party of 200
of them with field guns and nmmunt
tlori under n Honduran leader named
Oserlo started for tho border of Hon
duras to transfer the revolution from
Nlcnragua to her next door neighbor.
This move followed a solemn promise to
surrender Leon to the Americans. Their
plans were frustrated by tho Nlcar
aguan troops, however, who overtook
th'e revolutlonsts and prevented them
entering Honduras.
Irlns and Ksplnosa, two braves who
had come to Leon from Costa Itlca,
each expecting to command the revolu
tionist forces If thn revolt waa success
ful, succeeded In getting to Honduras
by water, hut were arrested and sent tn
the capital of that republic as prisoners.

men who had come In from neighboring
republics under cover of the Mena re
volt, tied to Snn Salvador only to bo

scattering sparks wero quenched and It
Is believed now thnt a general up

nt the State Department that trouhle
was brewing In Central America.
