Interesting moment of the day when

trlct Attorney Whitman and his us.-lst-ant,
Mr. Moss, lined up for the first
time at this or winy other murder trial
Itose, Webber. Vallon and Hchepp'. Well
dressed and dapper they stood within
touching distance of the si.mli Juror,
with Rose resting a hand on the rail of
the Jury box, Vallon Ht Hose's left.
Webber next to Vallon and Schepps o.i
the end of the line nearest the gunmen.
"Mr. Htanlsh," Mr. Moss asked th
eye witness slowly nml very earnestly,
, "on the night of duly l.l-iti when you
saw Herman Rosenthal shot and killed
did you see nny of these four men, Web.

A Woman' Word Asnlnat llrr.elf.
Hut this little old woman In black,
Mary Kllrn Kydd, a few minutes after
ho had rattled off her descriptions of
the four gamblers with thn rapidity of
a parrot, was a very pathetic little figure
Indeed. For It took Mr. Moss only a
very fpw moments to bring before the
Jury that Hip little old woman day
before yesterday had m:tde statements
to a neighbor, not knowing that her
every word was being taken down by
an unseen stenographer, which Indicated
that old Mrs. Kydd, as she had told
Mr. Moss himself long ago, doesn't know
who shot Rosenthal nt all.
And Mr. Moss, after bringing up fur
ther statements made- by the old woman
prior to her testimony of yesterday, In
which Mrs. Kydd had said that she
didn't see the murder, cros.i-(tuestirnied
her about her visit to the West Side
prison nt the beginning of the present
week, She had gone there last Monday
to ask to see Webber and Vallon and
the. others because, so she had Informed
"one of the workmen" who had met in
the Jail, she "was going to Identify

"And don't you know," Mr. Moss wear
ily Interrupted her prattle at last, "that

In the prison you wanted to see Vallon i
and Webber was Webber himself?"
"It was nut!" cried the little old
woman In shrill nnger. "it was a work,
With fjulte as much ease Mr. MoSs
brought out that she had told him an
well as Commissioner Dougherty many
weeks ago that she knew nothing about
the Rosenthal millileiim Mr Mimii
asked her yesterduy why she hadn't told
him her story of seeing the murdei at ;

"Hecause." she answered calmly, "I
was waiting llrst to sro thn defence,"
And the umlle ihat swept along thn Jury
box never stopped until It had lighted
up the faces at the table of the gun
men's counsel ulso.
"Must wo have much more of this,
Mr. Moss?" Interrupted Justice Goff, also
wearily and a bit Impatiently, at Inst.
"This Is a lady of very few words,"
She stepped down from the stand then
smiling, as If pleased with her success.
For had she not desctibvd the four
gamblets accused by the gunmen ns thn
actual killers, and told loudly again und
again thai about two hours after the
mill iter she had gone right over In front

li was John Relsler, a close friend of
llosenthal mid known lo the Tenderloin
as John the Hat her, who testified yester
dav Ihat after the murder he had seen
"Hrldgle Webber running uway." When
ptessed on cross-examination by Mr.
Moss John the ll.tr ber said that he was
across Long Acre Square and up litoad.
wav as far as the Hotel Astor when he
saw Hrlilgle running. John the liar
ber's testimony steadily seemed to be
Impressing the Jury less and less,
"How long after the shooting, Mr.
Heller," asked Mr. Moss nt last, "was
It that you saw Webber running away?"
"Well," hesitated John the lilt her,
"It was about an hour after the shoot
ing." Finally Mr. Moss brought from John
the Harber that he hadn't seen Web
ber running away at all, but had seen
him "shoving his way through tho
crowd." And John admitted that a
man can't run while entirely surrounded
by a crowd.
John .1. Hlckey, a well dressed, round
faced young man, seemed to attract
more serious attention from the Jury
than John the Harber or old Mrs. Kydd.
Hlckey Is a bartender sometimes and
sometimes he has been a lookout at the
door of a gambling house. He was
slundlng beside Rosenthal and the two
were talking together, he said, at the
moment Rosenthal was killed.
Hlckey told In direct examination by
the defence of entering the Metropole
with Rosenthal, Hoob Walker, Moe
Brown and a man named Warren after
midnight July 16. Rosenthal 'had In
vited them to go there with him for a
drink and with Rosenthal they all had
at at the third table from the door.
Siiioil Beside ,-Hnrilered Man.
Three-quarters of an hour later they
went out Into rhe street, Hlckey walk
ing Just behind Rosenthal, he swore.
He told then In a timid, hesitant wav
how Rosenthal bought newspapers at
the restaurant door for himself, Hlckey
and the others and how Rosenthal and
he were reading the headlines or the
newspaper accounts of Rosenthal's
troubles with Becker.
"I heard a shot," continued Hlckey,
his voice now sunk so low that anofrlcer
constantly at ills elbow was urging him
to speak so that the Jury at least could
hear him. "I looked up and saw a man
with a gun In his hand right beside
"Did you have a look at this man?"
asked Mr. Wahle.
"Yes," answered Hlckey, while the
court oltlcer again urged him to try to
raise his voice n bit. "He had a cap
pulled down over his eyes and I could
only see his nose and chin. He had a
long, sharp chin and he was clean
shaven and he had a long straight nose.
And then he ran over toward Sixth ave
nue," conrluded Hlckey, now utmost
"Mr. Hlckey,' said the gunmen's law
yer, pointing to the four defendants,
"did you see any of these four young
men here shooting at Rosenthal?"
"No," answered the bartender In n
hesitating tone so low that the Jurors
farthest from him were leaning far from
their seats and holding their hands to
When Mr. Moss now took the witness
In hand the bartender admitted to hav
ing been a "lookout," hut Insisted that
he did "not know anything about gam
bling." lie tried to bring from the wit
ness that the Walker whom Hlckey de
scribed n "his pal for years" was an
ex-convlct, but Hlckey said this was
news to him. Walker, he said, some
times had dealt cards "upstairs where I
was a lookout."
With Walker he sometimes hnd hung
around the coffee house at 76 Sixth
avenue where Gyp the Blood, Lefty and
other Zellg gangsters. Including Zellg
himself, hung out. Yes, he had gone
to the Zellg social affairs, the Zellg ball
and so on, but Hlckey was sure he never
had met Whltey Lewis or Lefty nt a
Zellg ball where Lefty served on thi
Was Vol Hoar. Wrlilier or Vallon.
Mr. Moss again brought Hlckey'a at
tention back to his direct statement
that when Rosenthal was killed Hlckey
and Rosenthal were talking together
about the headlines In the newspapers,
and then Mr. Moss shot out the ques
tion iis to whether or not Hlckey had
seen Rose. Vallon or Webber shooting
nt the man the witness was talking to
"I can't say I saw Rose, Vallon or
Webber shooting," whispered the wit
ness. . "I saw three me:, shooting. I
didn't see their faces. Yes, the men
who were shooting were Just a few feet
away, hut I couldn't see their faces
Iwiwyeis, Jurors and the Jurymen
laughed outright at some of the an
swers made by the next witness, Iat
Whalnn, driver of a nlghthawk vctorli
that Wlialen said was standing at the
southeast corner of Broadway and
Forty-third street, or less than 200 feet
west of the Metropole.
Whnlen In a rich brogue told of hear
ing a shot as he stood beside his vic
toria, or seeing several men running
out In the street In front of the Metro,
pole rfnd finally of seeing one man In
particular kill Rosenthal and then stand
beside, the body for a time before run
ning toward a pile of building material
a few doors to the east.
"How long did this man who killed
the man lying In the street stnnd beside
the dead man's body?" asked the gun
"Oh," said Pat Whalen easily, "about

with rosy confidem, "Just about live

"Did you, Mr wimlcn, run after tho'
man with tin. le.volver to'try to catch'
him?" asked Mr. Moss In cross-examination.
"Try to catch the man with the gun,
Is It?" roared Hut with n laugh. "In
deed, then, I did not "
Dago Frank's story at the beginning
of the forenoon session was the familiar
one that the Jury has heard again and
ugaln from the gunmen. It .was the
alibi that Frank had left the others
Just before the shooting and had gone
lo the Harlem flat, where he lived with
Jean Gordon (Rosle Harris), and where
long nfter midnight Gyp, Lefty and
Whltey came home lo tell him that
Ihey had seen a man killed, who Frank
about two hours later heard was Her
man Rosenthal. When he did leave
the Mat for good the next day It Was
because he was disgusted with Jean
after learning Hint she had ieen ar
rested for "loitering" In the streets the
night of the mutder.
With Jeun In Hie workhouse Frank
Immediately went to live with his mother
and brother, he said. And when, u few
days later, Jean came back from serv
ing her sentence on "the Island" and
had gone to live with Abe Harris Frank
had gone to live In the flat with Harris
and Jean also, and there lie was ar
rested. liner Han Opium .lulnl.
In a loud voire Frank said that he
and Harris had been partners In an
opium Joint, "me being a silent partner."
as Dago Frank put It. Yes, he had
served a prison term for carrying
weapons also, but a convict whom
Frank Is sure he doesn't know "put
the revolver and the slungshot In my
pocket Just fifteen minutes before the
copper grabbed me." And when It ramp
to a final questioning by Justice Goff
concerning some of Frank's testimony
on cross-examination that needed
straightening nut In small details Dago
Frank was not so sure of himself as the
three gunmen who testified the day be
fore had been.
Mr. Wahle called Lawyer Harford T.
Marshall for a lew minutes to testify
that William Shapiro, the chauffeur of
the "murder car," who In the present
trial swore that the four defendants
were his passengers on the night of.the
murder, had told Mr. Marshall a week
previous to the Becker trial that the
occupants of the car were Schepps and
Keeper James Moloney of the Tombs
testified that Shapiro during the Becker
trial had said again that Schepps and
Vallon had fled In the "murder car."
The Tombs keeper said that he hadn't
gone to Mr. Whitman with this Informa
tion during the trial that ended In
Becker's sentence to the electric chair
because he "didn't care to get mixed
up In the case.'
The blond haired little wife of Lefty
Louie testified for a few moments about
the visit of Rose and Webber to Lefty's
flat the night of the day Zellg was
wounded In front of the Criminal Courts
Building while walking down the steps
with Lefty and Whltey Lewis.
Mrs. Rose Sherry testified that Stan
nlsh hadn't been present at the murder
because she saw him leave her rooming
house after the shots had been flrpd. On
cross-examination she admitted that
Stannlsh had complained of being robbed
In her house.

Walker away from Roscnthal'a table nt
Vallon hod asked him to call Boob
the Metropole about fifteen minutes be
fore Rosenthal was killed. Alexander
Luban and his daughter and step
daughter swore that Morris Luban. an
other witness for the State who identi
ties some of the gunmen, was at Alex
ander Luban's home In Brooklyn on the
night of July 16 and on other nights
during the summer. But on cross-examination
the Lubans eould place the
date only of this particular visit of
Morris Luban. Lefty Louie's father was
called, but his testimony about circum
stances preceding the murder were ex
cluded as not material.
It was decided last night that after the
testimony in rebuttal at this morning's
session the Jury will be locked up over
Sunday. The lawyers will mike their
closing pleas on Monday. To-day the
trial will be resumed at 10:30 o'clock,

WaNiu.Niiio.N, Nov. IS. Attorney-General
Wickersliam commented to-day
for TllK St)K on the action of the United
Stales .Supreme Court foreshadowing u
decision upholding validity of tho so
called one price Stoto laws. The Attorney-General
contend that Federal
l"gislalion of this character, which is
lepiusented in the l,enroot-I.aKollot(o
bills now pending before. Congress, would
add nothing to the Hheiman anti-trust
law, but on the contrary would tend to
weaken It. Said Mr. Wickersliam:
"An article in the New York SUN lo-day
refers to uu argument had in the Supreme
Court of the United States involving
thn validity of a statute of South Dakota
making it a criminal ofTence for pcrsonu
or corKrations engaged in production,
manufacture ur distribution of com
modities of general use 'intentionally,
I for the put pose of destroying the compe
lition of any regular established dealer
in such commodity or to prevent the
conietltion of any person who in good
faith intends and attemps to become
such dealer, fo discriminate lictwcen
different sections, communities or States
by selling such commodity at a lower
rate in one section that another,' allow
ance being made in the statute for an
equalization of prices by considering the
difference in cost of transportation and
other necessary expense for production
"It is said this case has attracted atten
tion as exemplifying a new form of anti
trust legislation and reference Is made
to bills pending in Congress to establish
by Federal legislation tho same principle
as applicable to interstafe commerce
But this statute only strikes at one of tho
many methods by which trade or com
merce is unduly restrained und monopoly
is innideu up, aim untier.tne terms or ine
Sherman unti-ttust law the Federal
courts have granted injunctions to 'pre-
ill irpiiaiii . luiotllllll. ill III- '.!!- WJ
enjoining the doing of iust such nets.
Thus, for example, in the final' decree
against the powder trust, entered in the
United f-'lntes District Court for Dela
ware on June 13, 1012, the defendants are
eniolned among other things from
"'Offering or cnusing to be offered or
making or causing tu he made moro
lavorahle prices or terms of sale for the
products manufactured by them or
either of them to the customers of nny
rival manufacturer or manufacturers
than they at tho same time offer In make
to their established trade where the pur
pose is to unfairly cripple or drive out
of business such rival manufacturer
or manufacturers or otherwise to unlaw
fully .strain the trnde and commerce
of the United States in any of said prod
ucts; provided that no defendant is en
iolned or restrained from making any
price or prices in the sale of said products
or any thereof to meet or to compete
with prices made by any other defendant
or by any rival manufacturer; and pro
vided further that nothing in this dn:ree
Bhall Ixj taken in any respect to enloln or
restrain fair, freo and open competition '
"In tho decree entered liv the United
States Circuit Court. Northern District
of Ohio, October 12. 101 1, against tho
General Electric Company and others,
the defendants wero among other things
""From offering or making more favor
able prices or terms of salo for incandes
cent electric lamps to the customers or
any rival manufacturer or manufacturers
than it ut tho same time offers or makes
to its established trade where the pur
lose is to drive out of business such rival
manufacturer or manufacturers or other
wise unlawfully lo restrain the trade
and commerce of tho United States in in
candescent electric lamps: provided no
defendant is enjoined or restrained from
making any prices for incandescent elec
tric lamps to meet or compete with prices
previously made by any other defendant
or by any rival manufacturer and pro
vided further that nothing in this decree
shall lie taken in any respect to enjoin
or restruin fair, freo and open compe
"A similar provision is included in the
decree entered aguinst thn Aluminum
Company of America by the United States
District Court, Western District of Penn
sylvania. "In other words if one or the methods
adopted by unfair couietition to destroy
u cometitior is to undersell him in one
prt of the country bv making a price
lower than is reasonable atid jiossibly
lower than cost with tho intent of driving
out the competilior and then restoring tho
prico to a normal point, that sort of con
duct will bo enjoined by tho Federal
courts as a violation of tho Sherman law,
and no new legislation is needed to em
power them to do so.
"The stutute only strikes at one class
or acts which may be employed to unduly
restrain or monopolize trade and com
merce. The broad, comprehensive terms
or tho Sherman law would bo woakoned,
not strengthened, hv such specifications
as were contemplated by the Lenroot-l.a
Follette bills "
