MURDER PROBE PROMISES PLENTY OF SENSATION.
New York, July 23. The Ros
enthal murder case becomes only
blacker in character as the days
It is beyond question now that
the murder was done with the
help of the police department and
the connivance of high police offi
cials. Jt is beyond question that to
carry out the murder tie police
allied themselves with the Apa
ches' of New York, whose trade is
murder, whose records are so
black and bloodthirsty that those
of the Apaches of Paris become
the records of children in crime
The very names of the men" now
being hunted for the' murder are
enough: Dago Frank, Gib the
Blood Hodowitz, Whitey Lewis,
Red Wagner, Humpty Jackson,
Lefty Loewy. They are men who
have been the terror of the East
Side for years.
And on top of these names in
connection with the actual mur
der comes this extraordinary
.statement from District Attorney

power .gqes, every man in this
case 8. 1 can get the .evidence -Ij
want against policemen, evidence
I know exists.
"I shall let Shapiro and Libby,
and Sam Paul and Jack Rose him
self turn state's witnesses if I can
get the police conspirators. There
are bigger mn than Becker in this
case. I want them.
"What has the police depart
ment except Dougherty done?
Nothing. They aren't doing any
thing now. Dougherty is on the
level. But can he swing this thing
"The murder smells of police
"For an hour before Rosenthal
was shot preparations were being
made in Forty-third street for the
murder. There were fifteen or six
ten men at least in the plot. The
street was kept clear of-taxicabs.
"Rosenthal was watched. The
details were worked out in plain
sight. But the police were blind.
"After the killing there. was
plenty of1 time to get the murder
ers. It-was a leisurely job. But the
police did not hurry. What did
they do about getting evidence
"The only man they held was
Gallagher, who gave the right at"
