DEATH BY MEN ON LONELY ROAD V Victim, Young and Hudson, Retails UiHtfMtifM fcy AiHwritiis. r New York, Oct. a The evidence by which Police Lieut. Charles Becker hopes to refute the charge that he Instigated the assassination of Herman Rosenthal was concluded before Justice John W. Goff to-day. The defense closed with .out having; placed the accused officer on the witness stand and apparently added no strength to the case through the tea tiracny of the last few witnesses called. William Shapiro, chauffeur of the mur der car, offered In rebuttal by the dis trict attorney, fumlsned a startling cli max to the proceedings by swearing that neither Rose, Webber, Vallon nor fc'chepps. was present when Rosenthal was shot In front of the Metropole Hotel on the night of Jul 16. The case will go to the jury Thursday morning.. Justice Goff announced, after a consultation with the law) era on both sides, that Attorney John F. Mclntjre would be given four hours to-morrow from 10 a. m. until 2 p. m. for his sum ming up address. District Attorney Moss will make the closing argument for the people and has been allotted the four hours from 3J0 p. m. until 730 p. m. The Jury will be glen a night's rest before hearing the charge from the court v hlch will guide them In reaching a verdict. ' Afraid to Face Gnnmrn.' Before taking the stand Shapiro sent for his counsel, Aaron Levy, and made an affidavit covering his connection wltn the shooting. An-attempt to Introduce the affidavit was blocked by the defense. Objections by the defense also pre vented Shapiro testifying to anything connecting Becker with the case, al though, he was able to swear that the murderers escaped In his automobile, and that he. Schepps, and Vallon did not ride away with them. Shapiro was afraid to go back, to the Tombs after being a State's wltnes, ap parently fearing to face the gunmen or Beckerj-and wars fatn to tneWest Side police court prison. It was said, however, that Shapiro was Jubilant at having earned lmmun'ty without being forced to Identify the gunmen, which he steadfast ly refused to do Even in his affidavit Shapiro did not Identify the four gunmen under arrest as the murderers. Just before being led back to the Tombs, Becker said: "I was desirous of becoming a witness In my own behalf, but very time the matter came up, there was much differ ence of opinion as to the advisability of such a course. I do not believe any Jury would convict a mi.n on the testi mony of such men as those who have charged me with this crime I am sat isfied to take my chances as matters stand It does seem that my lawyers have iau cij niue jccnaj w im me evidence they desired to introduce.

Conn, a young and handsome woman was deliberately shot to death to-night The victim when found, with Ave bul let wpunda In her body, waa clad In cost ly attire, and her. valuable jewels bad not been taken. The motive for. the killlnr Is a blank mystery, although on learning that she had come recently' from Chi cago, the police formed a theory -that she might have been a dangerous wit ness in some criminal case. , . After shooting the girl, the five men who had sent the chauffeur on Ahead In the car abandoned the machine and fled Into the woods. Three of them were captured within two hours. Two of these were traced by a Strat ford posse of constables and citizens of Bilberry Swamp, two mllea from the icene of the tragedy. They were hiding in me tnick undergrowth and were com pletely exhausted from running1 through tne rcresu Their clothing had been torn to shreds by the brambles, but It waa easy to see that the garments had been whole and costly .only a few hours be fore. ' Third Has Captured. The men said they were Francisco Plx zichenl, a restaurant keeper at 33 Union Square, Bridgeport, and Jamea Mattlo, of 130 South Avenue, Bridgeport.

In concluding their case the lawyers for the defease called ten witnesses, after which Justice Goff recalled Jacob Reich, known as Sullivan. In order that certain answers which were overruled whn Reich was on the stand before might oe admitted into the -record if Becker's lawyer's so desired. Sullivan was reprimanded by the court for his boisterous conduct daring nis last appearance on the stand. Mr. Mclntvre objected to the Infliction of this reprimand in the presence cf the jury. Quotes Jack Rove. In response to questions Sullivan said Bridgey Webber told him "T offered Rose Jl.OOO'iiot to name me In this case, but Rose said he'd put in Gaynor, Wal do, or any one to get out himself." Another question which Sullivan was asked was in regard to what Rose had said to him in the counsel room of the Tombs. Rose told me that he. Webber. iw,d Vallon were going to frame up on Becker, and I said, "You bald-headed , what do you mean by doing thlsr and he said, 'You know self- preservation is tne nrst law of nature, and by giving up Becker I can ret out If I had to stay here another thirty oar s a a go crmzj . The next question referred to a con versation Sullivan had with Rose, Web ber, and Vallon. "Did they ask you to say that Becker -was with them at Forty-second Sttreet and Sixth Avenue?" "Yes." replied Sullivan; and they told me that I would be indicted if I didn't. Rose said to me: "We are all Jews, and what do we care about that Dutch r " Tells More About Rose. Sullivan also told of Bridgey Webber Baying In reference to Rosenthal: "He said 'that tried to kill m. and I am glad he's dead. I'm happy, and my wife is happy, and we are all the .happiest people in the world. He tried to break my Jaw. I could He down be side him with his throat cut and be happy " He also'sald that Jack Rose had told mm privately in tne Tombs that IaVm Becker had nothing to do with the 31400 luanea .ttoseninai; inai mis was his (Rose) money; that he waa bankrupt, and on that account had the note drawn by a iMmmy; I asked him if Becker had anything to do with the murder." said the witness. "Rose said: 'By the grave of my dead mother, he bad nothing to do with it.' ' The witness aald Hose was on hi knees with hands clasped when he made this declaration. "The twelve men who constitute the Becker Jury were permitted by Justice Goff to-night to see their relatives and a iew xncnos er uey -returned to the ,Tr,Wn. Hotel. The reception lasted There all the men and the girl left the machine. l One of the men said to Hall "Now youjust drive up the road a piece apd then come back." Hall had gone about'400 jards when'he was startled by the reports of five pistol shots in rapid succession. He heard no other sound not a cry nor a spoken word. He whirled the car about and sped back. There was 'no sign of the men or the girl. He put on full sDeed and gave the alarm in Stratford. une posse was organized within half an hour. On the road they met a peddler who had found the bodv of th !ri w directed them to It. and from there they followed a trail of broken bushes through the woods to Bilberry swamp, where they came upon the two fugitives.

An examination of the bodv of the girl gave no clew to her identity. But she carried several letters which indi cated that she had come on recently from Chicago. The chief of police of Stratford .-il,t to-night that the police believed that possibly the girl, had had some connec tion with recent Investigations in Chi cago and that this might indicate a mo tive tor doing away with her and silencing her voice.
