Jleo testified to the delivery of a
note from a female friend of t’irofici

this testimony can have is the alibi

Glynn Remains Firm.
Albany, X. Y„ April 11.—Telling
callers that the matter of a stay ot
the execution of fhe four gunmen
entenced to die for the murdor of
Herman Rosenthal rested with Su
preme Court Justice Goff, Governor
Glynn today declined to comment
further on the case. His attitude
was interpreted, however, as equiva

not to exercise executive clemency
unless the judge demand the evidence
today of sufficient merit to win a
A number of incidents leading to
tliis interpretation, principal among
them being the statement of Superin
tendent Riley of the state prison de
partment, that in his opinion the gov
ernor would not grant a respite. This
declaration followed a long confer
ence between the governor and Mr.
Riley after Mr. Riley had returned
from Sing Sing prison.
Although neither the governor nor
Mr. Riley would admit it. the gen
eral impression prevailed around the
capitol that Mr. Riley had been de
tailed by tbe governor to talk to
"Dago Prank," who lias maintained
lie has an alibi.
Mr. Riley brought with hint a state
ment from “Dago Frank" and placed
it in tlie hands of the governor. As
soon tis this became known, there
were repeated rumors that one of the
gunmen had confessed. These Mr.
Riley set at rest by asserting that the
statement was only a reiteration of
Giro riot's allegations concerning hie
whereabouts on the night of the
The governor declined to make
public the contents of the statement,
declaring that it was “not worth any
Exclaiming how lie came by the
document, Mr. Kiley said that last
night 'he had had a talk with Cirolici
and (he latter had told him then that
he was not with the three, other con
victed men when the murder was
“I told Oirofici,” Air. Riley con
tinued, “that anything he might say
1 would tell jhe governor. When I
suggested that his story he put in
writing so I could take it to tiie gov
ernor, he agreed, hut seemed to at
tach no hope that it would prove of
value. Father Cashin, the prison
chaplain, and Warden Clancy read
the statement and said it contained
nothing that Cirofici had not already
said many times.”
Mr. 'Riley declined to say what he*
had told Governor Glynn concerning
his impressions gained from his talk
with "Dago Frank "
"What is your personal opinion?"
he was asked.
“If there is any doubt of Cirofici's
being actually present when the
shooting took place,” lie replied, “it
seems clear to my mind that lie
knew all about it,”
In order to he prepared for the at
testing of a reprieve in the event of
the governor tleciding to grant one
at any hour, the office of the secre
tary of state, which usually closes a!
noon Saturdays, was kept open t'his
afternoon and tonight. The govern
or's signature to a reprieve must be
attested by a representative of the
secretary of state's office and sealed
with tiie great seal of the state,

A dramatic occurrence marked his

petition from Rabbi Goldstein asking
