Boston men that Fletcher tried to hurt
Cady by jumping on him at the plate
in the sixth inning of yesterday's
game Cady was not hurt, but his
team mates said today that Fletcher's
intention was plain. They had an
other grievance on account of an as
sault with stones and dirt made by
people on the street while on the way
to the Polo grounds In automobiles.
Buck" O'Brien was stiuck b a stono
but suffered only a slight abrasion of
the skin. Other players said they had

Announcement Uo this effect was
made today by Colonel Charles Sonn
tag of the state board of prison di
rectors. Ho said the measure elim
inating from- the .garb of most of tho
state's prisoners the symbol of their
shame would goMnto effect as soon
as a special committee could arrange
fon a new classification of the inmates
of Sau Quentln and Folsoin prisonH.
Rules formulated by the committee
call for three grades among prisoners.
On entering either of the ponitontl-r-ies
a prisoner will be enrolled In the
second class While in that class
ho will be regarded as a probationer,
and his conduct will determine wheth
er he shall be promoted to the first
class or degraded Into the third dil
slon. jfj
If sent to thetfirst ckuss the pils
oner will be permitted atHhe prober
time to make application for parole
or pardon. If consigned to the third
class he will be considered incorrigi
ble, will be denied the privilege of
applying for parole and will be requir
ed to wear the regulation suit ot
The- directors believe the plan of
grading tho men and eliminating
stripes will materially raise the pris

Men Who Pell With
Aeroplane Into Bay
Picked Up
Philadelphia, Oct. 12. Alator
Marshall B. Roid and Henry C. Mus
lin, a lieutenant commander in the
navy, were found today in Delaware
bay, after clinging for more than fif
teen hours to the wreck of the hydro
aeroplane in which they started yos
torday from Capo May to this cltv.
Tho engine of their machine oxplod
ed whllo It was flying at tho rate of
forty miles an hour ocr the bay and
both men and airship plunged like a
shot Into tho water.
An oyster boat picked up the men
who finally had moved to a buoy tho
wreckage which had kept afloat by
Its pontoons.
"When we wero about twelve miles
from Cape May, flying about 150 feet
In the air and making forty miles an
hour, tho engine behind us exploded,"
said Reld, describing his thrilling es
cape from death. "Tho four cylind
ers blew out together. The aeroplane
caught fire and we dropped like a
plummet. Right down into Delaware
bay we wont but the flames wero ex
tinguished by the waves.
"Tho pontoonr, kept us afloat and
we drifted around In the bay for fif
teen hours and forty minutes. Then
wo bumped Into a stake driven into
the bottom of the bay to indicate the
position of any oyster bed and we
mado fast to It and waited for day
break. "We were picked up and land
ed by an oyster patrol boat, which
also took tho wrecked machine
ashore. Both Muslin and I escaped
without a scratch.
"The only explanation I can give for
tho accident Is that the gasoline used
was of too high quality. The pon
toons saved our lives and proves that
tho hydro-aeroplanes are much safer
than tho ordinary flying machines. If
that accident had happened over land
there is nothing In the world that
would havo saved us "

Police Lieutenant Becker's Vice Agent on Stand
In Rosenthal Murder Case Recites Actions of H
Lieutenant and Gambler Before Shooting. H
Startling Revelations of Police Crookedness
Brought Out In Testimony Accused Officer H
Listens Coolly to Recital of His Crimes.
New York-, Oct. 12. Notwithstand
ing that it Is Saturday, when adjourn
ment is usually takou over the week
end, the trial of Police Lieutenant
Charles Becker, charged with tho
murder of Hermann Rosenthal, went
on as usual today,
"Bald Jack" Rose, chief Informer
against Becker, was called to tho wit
ness stand at 10 o'clock. It was ex
pected his testimonv and examination
might take up the entire day Before
going on the stand, Rose said:
"I'm going to make good. I know
what I'm up against but I'm going
through with it. I don't care what
happens 1 have only one regrot
through going on the stand. 1 have
met somo decent people and now
through mo going on the stand their
names will be besmirched. I wish
that nobody but me would be dragged
Into this but I suppose that Is part
of the penalty I shall tell every de
tail of the most awful plot that ever
was hatched."
The jurors aro held in the strictest
seclusion at their hotel when not In
court. Even telephone connection In
their rooms was cut off
Rose on Stand.
There was a 'craning- of necks in
tho crowded court room as tho bpld
lieaded gambler began to testlfyRose
said he had known Rosenthal,, for
twontv yoars and Becker for Several
years. The witness did not look at
Becker as he gave his testimony, but
the former police officer watched
Rose intently. Rose spoke in delib
erate tones
"Did you ever have business rela
tions with Becker?" he was asked.
"Yes, I collected money for him."
"I object, as incompetent," shouted
John F Mclntyre, counsel for tho de
fense. "Overruled," older the court.
Rose then told of meeting Rosen
thal and Backer in the Elks' club on
a New Year's celebration Mis Ros
enthal was present. Bocker said to
Mrs Rosenthal, according to tho wit
ness, "Now don't worry Hermann
and I have a thorough understanding.
He Is my friend and I am his friend,
and his troubles are all over."
Rose Met Becker.
Roso said ho met Becker again at
his house and at the Union Square
hotel, when Becker told him the de
tails of the alleged partnership in a
gambling house between Becker and
"Becker," Rose testified "said Her
mann had made a proposition to him
that lie go into partnership with Ros
enthal in running a gambling houso
and had asked him to Invest $5 000
in it I said no one over made any
moner in the gambling business with
Rosenthal "
Bocker, however, continued the wit
ness .did not agree and made a prop
osition to allow Rose to take a 25
per cent share in tho business of the
proposed establishment Becker took
a i$2vG0P cjjael mortgago on Rosen
thars'properl'i and arranged 'for a
r,Jumm)jtohold the mortiigo.
"Beckire? asked mo," tho witness
went on'if lwoTild take cbagoand
' I said rHvouliL"
The wituesKol'of conversations
'with Decked iirgtliich the police lieu
tenant 'in.quired what were the profits
'of tho gambling house.
Bectfer Demands Money.
"I reported to him on ono occasion
that the house had made several
thousand dollars," said Rose. "Ho
told mo to tell Rosenthal to send him
$500 1 went to see Rosenthal and
Rosenthal said ho wouldn't give it
bocautio he thought ho hadn't had a
square deal on tho mortgage I told
Becker. Becker said that Just as soon
as his attention was called to that
placo ho would raid it. He told mo
to toll that to Rosenthal. I told Ros"
onthal. Rosenthal said:
" 'You tell Becker ho can't raid this
placo unless ho gets tho proper evi
dence, and he can't get it becauoo I
know all his men and they can't get
in hero.
'"So that's his attitude is it?' Beck. ,
er said whon I told hJm this. -'All ,
rlsht. I'll raid it. Toll Rosenthal
Rosenthal la Firm.
I "Rosenthnl sont back word by mo
, to Becker, 'Toll that follow he had
better not start anything with 'me.' H
The next day Beckor told mo that H
Commissioner Waldo had called hi3 IH
attention to tho placo and bo (Beck- H
er) would havo to raid It. I told Ros- H
enthal and Ro son thai said, Tell H
Becker he can't bluff me; I don't be- IH
lieve Commissioner Waldo ever called H
his attention to my place.' H
"Several days later Becker told mo H
that complaints Ave re pouring in and IH
he would havo to raid theJplacc. Ho H
told me to see Rosenthal and tell him H
to do him a favor. IH
" 'Tell him he has to stand for a H
raid,' Becker said. 'I did him a favor H
and he must do one for me. I'll raid, H
the place and it will relieve mo from H
worry, and in a few days he can re- H
ODon his place and everything will be H
right.' H
"Rosenthal replied to me' 'You tell H
Becker he must think I'm crazy to IH
stand for such a thing. He might as H
well take a torch and bum it up. It's H
my place and I'm going to handle it H
the way 1 think best.' " H
Rose Told Becker. fM
"I saw Becker and told him what VM
Rosenthal said. H
'"Well, I'm going to raid the plac, jH
and raid it in a few days within-a H
'T told Becker It would only causov M
trtuitye and he Said, 'Don't you worry H
about that; it won't cnuso mo any M
trouble. It will only causo trouble for jH
Rosenthal.' JM
"'Do you want me to tell that to IH
Rosenthal?' I asked. vM
"'No,' he answered, 'I'm through H
with that fellow.' IH
"A few days later Becker told me H
that he was going to get two men B
from the strong arm squad to swear H
to the evidence. M
" 'That's awfully dangerous,' Char- H
He.' I said. IH
" 'No,' he said, it's all right, I'll let H
Rosenthal satisfy the mortgago first. H
I'll raid his place If it's the last thing H
" 'All right,' I said, i'm not going to IH
be in tho house when it's raided.' " H
The house later was raided
When testifying that Rosenthal IH
complained to Becker that policemen H
were still stationed In front of his H
place. Rose mentioned that his wife's H
nephew was taken in the raid. IH
Rose next saw Becker in his own ll
house. M
Roconthal Is Anxious. M
"He told me," said Rose, "that IH
Rosenthal had beon calling him up IH
every day asking a meeting to find M
ou -Vhathe was going to do about the
indictments against the men arrested IH
In Rosenthal's place. He put Rosen-
thai off. Soon after Becker said IH
Rosenthal had begun to talk around IH
street corners, that he was in pan- H
nership with Becker and was going IH
to show him up. M
"Becker a few days later told me of H
having seen Commissioner Waldo and IH
that the commissioner had hoard of H
Rosenthal's charges and had not be- H
lleved them " IH
"Becker said to mo, 'That fellow IH
Rosenthal Is getting dangerous' tM
"I said, '$oboy will believe Ros- IH
I onthal.'. , , IH
"'VVeJ.' heanawerod, Jsq long' as JM
GCiumlSsioner Waldo doesn't helteTe H
him, I guess there's nothing to worry H

"I asked Becker if he had taken the H
policomau out of Rosenthal's place. IH
Ho said 'No.' H
"Woll, I told him, 'as long as that JM
moii stays theio Rosenthal will talk.' vM
"'I don't care much what he says,' IH
Becker replied." H
T)ld you and Becker discuss news- H

"Yes Beckor told mo that 1 should H
