coming over from a preceding day. No
sooner had the clerk stated Its number

In tho chamber was on his feot de
manding to know what the resolution
wasi Then It dovelopcd that It was the
resolution to dlschargo tho hostile Com

Mr. Johnston, of my 6fllce. to meet Mar
shall and get statement from him."
Marshalli who lives at Ut2 South street,
asserted that his testimony wss sought by
tho Btato because there was- n link miss
ing In the chain of evidence against
Betker, namely the testimony of a disin
terested person lo the effect that lhre
has a murder plot to db away with
Rosenthal. Acting under Instructions,
Marshall until ho testified that ha had

"I Was taken to New Tork by Tom
Maxwell, brother of Jo Maxwell, a New
-York theatrical ngenr, under tho pretense
of signing . contract ror a 20-week en
gagement In a Now York theatre," anlcf
Marshall today. "When we reached Now
York I Was surprised when I was strved
with a subpoena calling me as a witness
In tho Becker trial. That was last May,
"I was taken to tho ofllco of F. B.
Groehl, an Assistant District Attorney,
where I was examined as to my knowl
edge of the, case," he said. "I told them
that I know nothing about a murder
Marshall then related the conversation
between himself and tho Assistant Dis
trict Attorney, aB follows:
"'Did ou sea Becker, Jack Rose,
Brldgle Webber and Sam Schepps talking
nt tha corner or 121th street and 7th ave
nue.?' I was asked.
" 'No! I answered.'
"i'You know Becker, don't you?' I then
via asked.'
" 'I know Becker,' I replied, 'but I don't
know these other men and can't say that
I saw them talking with Becker.'
"It was then pointed oilt to me that
the State had plenty of evidence that the
three men seen tnlklng with Becker Were
Rose, Weber and Schepps, but that the
witnesses who testified to that effect were
all discredited by the court because they
had an Interest In the case. Sines It was
a known fact that they wcro tho men and
that t had seen Becker, I was urged to
testify to that effect.
"I hesitated, but finally agreed to tes
tify according to the District Attorney's'
wishes "
Marshall's testimony, given during the
second trial of Becker, on May, 18, I.J,
proved to be tho turning point In thn
case against tho former lieutenant of po
lice. Marshall was tho most reliable wit
ness called by tho proscclutlon.
The Negro, who Is said to have been
a former stool pigeon of Becksr's, gavo
his testimony In a straightforward man
ner that convinced the Jury.
Marshall's mother lives at 46 West 133
