This is the outline of one of the

Jury Renders a Quick Verdict in Case of "Gyp the
Blood," Lefty Louie, "Whitey" Lewis and H
"Dago Frank" Out One Hour.
Court Remands Four Men to Their Cells and Will I
Be Ready to Pronounce Sentence at 10:30 M
O'Clock Tomorrow Morning. M
New York, Nov. 19. "Gyp the
Blood," "Lofty Louie," "Whitey"
Icwis and "Dago Frank" Cirofici. the
gunmen charged with the murder of
Herman Rosenthal, were all found
guilty of murder In the first degree
by a jury in tho eupremc court this
afternoon. Tho jury deliberated only
an hour and ten minutes.
Quick Verdict a Surprise.
The quick verdict came as a sur
prise to everylbody. Tho Jury In the
case of Lieutenant Charles Beceker
deliberated nearly seven hours be
fore reaching a verdict. He Is now in
Sing Sing, sentenced to the olectrlc
chair for having Instigated the mur
der. Remarkable Situation.
"What I shall say applies to all i
tho defendants, and only In one case
shall I separato one from tho others,"
said Justice Goff, In opening his ad
dress. "Herman Rosenthal was shot
to death under circumstances ot un
usual recklessness. Rose, Vallon,
Webber and Schcpps say to these four
defendants: 'You did the murder;
we admit the murder, but you com
mitted it.' It Is a remarkable situ
ation, each group of men accusing
the others.
Rose has taken tho witness Btand
and has confessed participation in
the crime. It was a remarqable nar
rative he told. Can you say that
man constructed and conceived this
plot without there being found a
grain of truth In It? From the de
fendants' mouths themselves you have
heard their story.
"It is for you to say, In hearing
Rose incriminate himself In tolling
this narrative, whether there was not
truth to support his story; whether it
was pure Invention.
"'Bear in mind that Rose did not
testify that he saw the defendants
shoot Rosenthal. Would he stop just
before the culmination of the plot and
fail to say he saw them commit the
murder if he was telling the truth "
Justlco Goff remanded tho prison
ers until 10-30 a. m. tomorrow, when
he will fix the time for pronouncing
The entire proceedings in court aft
er the Jury came in occupied only
seven minutes. The netendants were
brought in by four wardens and a po
liceman. They heard tho verdict with
faces unmoved, staring straight
One Walked With Bowed Head.
On the way back to their cells all
except "Whitey" Lewis walked erecL
Lewi6 went with bowed head. The
crowd in tho court room received tho
verdict without demonstration, and
tho news caused no visible excite
ment when It reached the throng out
side the building.
The court pointed out that although
all of the four gunmen had testified
that they were not more than 10 or
feet away from the scene of the mur
der and saw the shooting, they claim
ed they did not see oscnthnl fall. The
truth of these statomouts the jurors
must determino for themselves.
It was of imperative Importance for
tho jury, tho court said, to consider
that all the defendants had taken no
tice of the gray automobile In front
of Webber's poker rooms.
"Why. in a street whore many au
tomobiles were accustomed to pass,
should all tho defendants tuko notice
of this particular machine?" he asked
That Is for you to determine.
"The Jurors sholdd also weigh
whether it was possible for "Whitey"
Lewis to see the whole sccno of the
murder by the flash of the pistol.
"It Is also possible for you to con
sider whether the similar language
used by the defendants in describing
conversation!? wns a matter of ar
rangement between them."
New York, Nov 19. For more than
three hours today Suprome Court Jus
tice Goff charged tho jury In the case
of tho four gunmen accused of mur
dering Herman Rosenthal.
If the state'B informers committed
the crime, as the defonso contends,
he asked, was it rensonablo to as
smnn that tho informers would in
vite the gtinmcn aB witnesses?
"If Jack Rose has Hod," ho said,
"In swearing that the gunmen did the
3hcoting, why thon did he not go fur
ther nnd swear that he had actually
seen the shooting at the hands of
tho defendants?"
"These aro circumstances for you
to consider," cautioned tho court.
As In the charge to the Becker
Jury, Justice Goff ruled that Rose,
Vallon and Webbor wore accompli
ces. Schapps status, he left for the
jurors to decide.
"There is nothing In the law," he
added, "to prevent your giving full
credence to the testimony of Rose"
Justice Goff finished his charge at
1:33 p. m., and the Jury retired.
New York, Nov. 19. By night the
four gunmen charged with slaylus
the gambler Herman Rosenthal
should know whether they arc to fol
low Charles Becker to Sing Sing,
there to await the electric chair, or to H
go free, acquitted of the crime. H
This morning marked the last stage H
of the trial, with Justice Goff's charge
to the jury. He was to begin his ad- M
dress at 10.30 o'clock It was thought 1
he- would occupy at least three hours. H
