BECKER DERIDES
CHARGE 10 JURY
•Says Justice Guffs Summing
Up Was Veiled Presentation
of State's Case
Continued From Paae 1
part of the court's instructions dealt
with murder in the first degree, the
penalty for which is the electric chair.
Flanked by counsel, face expression
less, Becker sat chewing gum while
the court delivered the charge. Back
of the railing sat his wife, head bowed,
eyes downcast.
The white haired justice spoke in a
monotone, but with incisive deliberate
ness.
"It is not claimed by the prosecu
tion that Becker's band did actually
kill Rosenthal." he said at a crucial
point. "It is claimed that he request
ed and directed that tbe killing should
be done, and as I have already in
structed the jury, Keeker, lit law, must
he held responsible for the acts of
every one who acted in pursuance of
his request or instructions.
"it is important here that F should
direct you as to the law governing the
case now presented:
"Where a person is claimed not to
have done the actual killing but to
have Inspired it and instructed it. Un
der the law Becker stands charged
principally with the commission of the
crime of murder on the ground that he
counseled and advised it."
The court here added that tbe main
witnesses against the defendant were
without a doubt accomplices and he so
branded Rose. Val lon and Webber.
Schepps' relation he would not define.
DECREE OF KILLING DEFINED
"The killing of a human being," he
said, "can be considered as murder,
manslaughter and excusable homicide.
Th#re can be no verdict in this case of
excusable homicide and I will not con
sider that phase."
Murder in the first degree, the justice
explained, is done with intent and de
liberate design to kill, and in the second
degree without premeditation.
Justice Goff asked Attorney Mcln
tyre If he should define manslaughter
to the jury.
"We make no such request." Becker's
lawyer replied, and the court omitted
the definition.
"It matters not." tbe justice re
sumed, "whether the hand that killed
Rosenthal was the hand of Becker or
not. If you find that Becker gave
instructions to Rose which resulted in
Rosenthal's death, then Becker is
guilty of murder In the first degree.
"There is no question that Rose,
Webber and Vallon were accomplices,"
Justice Goff continued.
The case was given to tbe jury at
2:20 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Be
fore retiring for deliberation the jurors
were allowed until Z:2O o'clock for
luncheon.
Justice Goff concluded his charge at
1:30 o'clock, but John F. Mclntyre,
chief counsel for Becker, spent half an
hour In entering objections to the rul
ings of the court.
BECKER SAYS CHARGE UNFAIR
In his charge Justice Goff said if
Schepps* testimony were true there was
no reason why the testimony of the
three informers should not be believed.
The court's charge occupied three
hours and ten minutes. As Becker was
being led away to the Tombs be said:
That was not a charge to the
jury. It was a thin veiled sum
ming up of the case for the prose
cution. It was absolutely partial.
There was no justice In It. The
court was simply directing the jury
to convict me.
Becker stood at the bar with squared
shoulders, head erect. Not a muscle
moved in his face, but lie swallowed
hard. That was ail-
When the last juror had answered
Justice Goff instructed the clerk to
take the pedigree of the defendant.
Becker answered the questions In a
low, firm voice. A court officer brought
the questions to him written on a slip
of paper, and as the prisoner read
them to himself he replied:
.Forty-two years old, American
citizen, born In Germany; address
3239 Audubon avenue; Iteutenant of
police; married; Protestant; mother
living; habits temperate; never con
victed before.
PRISONER IS REMANDED
When Becker's voice died away M< -
Intyre asked that all further proceed
ings be deferred for one week "until
I can prepare the proper motions for
appeal."
"I will defer sentence," announced
Justice Goff, "until October 30 and re
mand the prisoner until that date."
Becker glanced at the judge and
rested bis eyes a moment on the jury.
Then he turned and. followed by a jail
-warden, walked with unfaltering, rapid
steps up the aisle of the courtroom and
disappeared through the door leading
over the "bridge x»f sighs" to the Tombs.
The jury had deliberated nearly eight
hours before reaching the verdict, al
though the case had been in its
hands since 2:20 o'clock Thursday
afternoon. Actual deliberation began
at 4:07 o'clock, when the doors of the
jury room swung behind them on their
return from luncheon.
DELIBERATIONS KEPT SECRET
What happened behind tfyose doors,
how the debate ebbed and flowed, who
stood out eight hours against the final
verdict, how many ballots were cast —
these were matters to whose secrecy
each juror was pledged.
While the jury was making up its
mind absolute stillness, heightened by
the midnight quiet of the streets, pre
vailed in the courtroom.
After the verdict was given no one
was allowed to leave the room until
the jury had filed out. Justice Goff
bad given orders that any one. disturb
ing the proceedings in the slightest
degree be brought before him for pun
ishment.
Two hundred persons or more gath
ered at the courtroom door. With her
ear almost at the keyhole sat the
prisoner's wife. As the last juror left
the room by another exit the door flew
open and a man rushed excitedly into
the corridor. Tiie crowd gave way. He
was half way down the steps to the
telephone booth when a policeman
shouted:
"What's the verdict?"
The fleeing man looked over his
sHoulder and shouted, "Guilty."
WIFE SCREAMS AND FAIMS
For a moment there was silence, keen
intense, gripping. It was broken by
a woman's muffled scream and tbe
sound of a falling body. The prisoner's
wife had fainted away.
Just before the verdict was given
Mclntyre made his last plea. He asked
the court to grant an earlier request of
the jury to inspect the testimony of the
persons who talked to Sam Schepps in
Hot Springs, Ark. The court refused
to hear the plea.
Mclntyre had opposed granting that
request of tbe jury when it was made
to Justice Goff six and a half hours
before.
It was upon this question—whether
Sam Schepps* was an accomplice to the
murder —that Justice Goff had hinged
his charge to the jury. .
The penalty for murder in the first
degree is death in the electric chair.
An appeal from the verdict goes
directly to the court of appeals at Al
bany and acts as a stay of execution.
When the jurors left the courtroom
they went directly to their homes.
They were under mandate of Justice
Goff "not to communicate the nature
of what had taken place in the jury
room "

districts on an equality with the trans
bay residential sections.
So ends a struggle that has lasted for
nearly 40 years between the Southern
Pacific company and the residents of
the territory south of San Francisco;
so San Francisco and Mateo coun
ties are brought into closer touch than
ever before.
It is a change that means more for
the development and upbuilding of the
peninsula than any event in its history.
The new rates have beep definitely and
finally agreed upon by the Southern
Pacific-, company and the San Mateo
County Development association and
will become effective probably by No
vember 1,
With the establishment of the new
rate schedule that now is being pre
pared for filing with the state railroad
commission, commutation and special
suburban rates down the peninsula will
be on a par with eoual distances into
Alameda,county. The latter long have
been the lowest suburban rates in the
United States, and the new peninsula
rates, extending as far south as San
Jose, will be the lowest comimttation
rates for an, equal distance on any
steam road 1n any part of the North
American continent.
It is to the efforts of the transporta
tion committee of the San Mateo Coun
ty Development association, under tbe
chairmanship of Mayor Gustave J. Mc-
Gregor of Burlingame, that the set
tlement of the old dispute is directly
due. The rates agreed upon by the
Southern Pacific company have been
accepted formally by this committee
and by the development association, and
the suit brought by the latter organ
ization before the railroad commission
to force the lowering of existing rates
will be dismissed at once.
COMPROMISE BEGAN IN AUGUST
That a compromise in the rate fight
was imminent first became apparent
late in August, when the San Mateo
county suit was called for trial before
the railroad commission. At that time
C. F. Durbrow, counsel for the South
ern Pacific company, asked for a con
tinuance of CO days, with the statement
that he a mutually satisfac
tory adjustment? ft) .he dispute could
be reached. '' The continuance was
granted and since that time there have
been constant conferences between the
railroad officials and the members of
the San Mateo county committee, with
the result that the new schedule has
been drawn and accepted.
The rates already officially announced
apply only to San Mateo county, as it
was to this district that the efforts
of the Development association were
limited, but proportionate rates based
upon the same methods of reaching a
settlement will go into effect for Palo
Alto and all the communities as far
south as San Jose at the same time.
The lowest of the new rates is that for
the individual monthly commutation
books. Numerous special round trip
and 10 and 30 ride tickets are in
cluded in the new schedule, and there
also will be a new "every day but
Sunday" commutation ticket at a re
duction of 10 per cent from the regular
commutation rate.
It Is estimated that the immediate
effect of the reduction will mean a
saving of $200,000 a year in suburban
railroad fares to the people of San
Mateo county alone, and .that the sav
ing to the residents of a city the size
of Burlingame will be not less than
$16,000.
In addition to the granting of the
new rates, the building of a new
parallel electric line between San Fran
cisco and San Jose is assured, although
no mention of this is made in con
nection with the establishment of the
new rate schedule. The line is to
connect In Palo Alto with the elec
tric road already owned by the South
ern Pacific between Palo Alto and San
Jose. The new road north, from Palo
Alto will parallel the existing steam
tracks to Millbrae and then will follow
the route of the old cemeteries line of
the Southern Pacific by way of Colma
into San Francisco. It is planned to
bring this electric line into the city
as far as Valencia street along the old
route, and thence by a subway under
Valencia street to a city terminus at
the civic center.
It Is the intention to secure the
necessary rights of way and franchise
rights within the city as soon as
possible, and It Is expected that work
upon the construction of the electr/lc
road will be under way within p. year.
MEN WHO SETTLED ISSUES
The committee appointed by Dr. W.
A. Brewer of Burlingame, president
of the San Mateo County Development
association, to work out the rate prob
lem with the Southern Pacific com
pany, consisted of Mayor Gugtave J.
McGregor of Burlingame. chairman;
William IT. Brown of San Mateo, H. C.
Tuchsen of Bedwood City, D. G. Double
day of Millbrae and W. J. Martin of
South San Francisco, with SeHi Mann
as attorney. The officials of the South
ern Pacific company who participated
in the negotiations that brought about
the settlement were Charles S. Fee.
general traffic manager; Paul Shoup,
head of the company's electric lines
and president of the Pacific Electric
company of Los Angeles, and C. F.
Durbrow, attorney.
The city of San Francisco interested
itself in the peninsula rate case at the
outset by Joining in the suit as inter
vernor. City Attorney Percy V. L.ong,
who was authorized to represent the
city in the case, has expressed his full
approval of the settlement and en
thusiastically indorsed the results
attained in the following letter to
Chairman McGregor:
G. J. McGregor. Esq., Burlln
grame, Cal.—Dear Sir: Yourself and
other members of tho committee

Peninsula Counties Will Benefit
New Interurban Tariff Is Liberal
The new suburban rate? for Santa Clara and San Mateo
counties, which probably will become effective November 1,
Will place the peninsula suburban district on an equality with
the transbay residential district as far as suburban transporta
tion rates for equal distances are concerned.
The reductions .granted by the Southern Pacific company
apply generally to all the old classes of tickets and to one or
two special tickets that have not been sold heretofore. The
regular 30 day commutation tickets will be sold at a rate based
on a charge of only one-half a cent a mile, which will be one
6. the most attractive suburban rates on any steam road in
the country.
It is also promised that in the near future an electric
line paralleling' the present steam road will be completed
between San Jose and San Francisco, with an entrance to the
City through a subway under Valencia street and with a ter
minus at or near the civic center.

BATES APPLY BOTH WAYS
All rates under the new scale apply
in both directions. That is, wherever
a round trip rate from San Francisco
to Burlingame and return, for instance,
is established, it applied just the same
from Burlingame to San Francisco and
return. The change will not affect one
way single fares of any description, nor
will It affect existing rates between
stations other than San Francisco and I
the various suburbs."* points. I
The rate now know.*, as a "daily
round trip" rate is not only lowered by
approximately one-third, but the limit
on the tickets is extended to two days,
so that the return trip may be made on
the day following the "going" trip in
stead of on the same day. It also pro
vides that tickets purchased on Satur
day will be good returning until Mon
day. The following table shows the*
existing "daily round trip" rate and
the new "two day limit round trip" rate
that will replace It between San Fran
cisco and all stations in San Mateo
county. The rate is based upon a
charge of a single fare plus one-third,
which will also apply as far south as
San Jose:

There are two kinds of Play er Pianos— theAngelus
and the other kind.
To hear an Angelus is to listen to the finished
playing of the artist. It is the one perfect player
piano. It separates melody and harmony just as in
hand playing. It is controlled by the touch of the
finger. Its pedals open and close automatically.
It is more daintily finished, more easily pedaled,,
more artistic in every way, and costs no more than
indifferently good players. By all means see and hear
the Angelus before your decision is made.

It's fur time—their protection is
as necessary these nippy morn
ings and chilly evenings as it will
be in the coldest weather that's
coming. j
Come and give us the pleasure of showing you through our
magnificent stock, which is now at its best.
Our furs are the true blue kinds—the kinds that hold their
beauty and the friendship of their wearers.
They are made in our own big, modern factory—right here
on the premises. And every step in their making, from the
first laying on of the designer's chalk to the last finishing
touch, is taken with but one goal in view—the satisfaction
of those who buy them.
Our fur coats combine superb beauty, grace-giving fit and
the latest ideas of fashion with the lowest price for which
coats of the same elegance and quality can be sold. Prices
start at $20 and advance by easy steps until they reach $500.
In sets —neckpieces and muffs to match—we have an almost
unending variety of staple styles and beautiful novelties, and
our values are nothing short of the best in the city. From
$5 to $1,000.
