THE BARUK DAILY TIMES, BAIUIE. VT.. SATURDAY. OCTOBER 20. 1911
STARTS ON BECKER APPEAL Attorney Mclntyre at. Preliminaries the BECKER GRIMLY CONFIDENT Only Three Ballots by Jury in Reaching Verdict, and No Question of Guilt at ,Any Time Gunmen's Trials Be gin Nov. 7. New York. Oct. 2i. Charles Rocker passed his hours of confinement in the Tombs yesterday planning to fight to annul thp verdict of the jury which Thursday night convicted him of first degree murder of Herman Rosenthal. After more than an hour's conference with his chief attorney, John F. Mcln tyre,, the latter announced that imme diate notice of appeal will be riled. Without. thi appeal Becker, who is due to be sentenced Wednesday, would,' ac cording to the usual procedure, be elec trocuted the first week in December. The filing of this notice, however, will act a a stay. Becker's wife visited him in prison yesterday, and the prisoner nearly broke down. Either Whitey Lewis or Lefty Louie will be next placed on trial, District Attorney Whitman announced yester-1 day. The date fixed is November 7. Mesn time Rose, Webber, Vallon and Schepps will be kept in the west side prison Both Schepps and Rose are not anxious to be released. "What those informers want now is not bail," said District Attorney Whitman last night, "but ex tra iron doors on their cells, so they'll feel safe." "I am sorry the jury found as they did," was Lieutenant Becker's only com ment to his jailer yesterday, as the con victed man Bat on the edge of his prison cot with his chin resting in his hands. The iron nrve which stood him through, out the ordeal of the fifteen-day trial did hot desert him yesterday and his bearing was as firm and steady as at any time during the proceedings in the courtroom. The work of drawing up the papers in the motion for a new trial will begin at once, and the documents will be placed before the court of appeals within a few days. Lloyd P. Stryker of Becker's counsel said the appeal would probably take a year's time. Attorney Mclntyre was confident of success in this action. "There is not the slightest doubt," he aa id, "that there will be a reversal of this verdict in a higher court." Basis for the appeal will be found in the hundreds of objections and exceptions raised by the defense in the course of the trial. It was declared yesterday that the jury arrived at its verdict of first degree murder after only three formal ballots. At no time during the deliberations was there a question of Becker's guilt, the only matter of debate being as to wheth er the verdict should be for first degree murder, meaning death to the prisoner, or second degree murder, which is pun ishable by life imprisonment. It was 'said that the first ballot showed eicht of the jurymen for conviction in the first degree, while on the second poll all but one of the twelve were agreed. The final ballot, taken shortly before midnight, was unanimous lor a verdict of first degree murder. Terrible Suffering Eczema All Over Baby's Body.

Soldiers and Police Did Not Use Their Guns. Salem, Mass., Oct. 20.-Militiunien and police oflieers denied positively yester day in the trial of Ettor, Oiovannitti and Caruso for the murder of Anna Lo- liizzo in the Lawrence textile strike that they tired any shots during the fatal riot on Jan. 2i). One militiaman, who was at the scene of the riot, told of beating with the butt end of his rifle a striker who drew a revolver, and Police Sergeant Walter Spranger told of an order ho gave his men to get their" guns ready, but said they diil not fire. ' "I was in charge of a squad of police men which whs driving the crowds at Harden and Union streets that night," said Spranger. "We had been resisted by the strikers repeatedly, had been pelted with miasilea and driven the peo pie time and again with our clubs. "When we heard the shouting, we were about a block away. 1 ordered the men to rush to t ho scene, and as we were proceeding I told them to get their guns ready. There was no such order until the shooting was all over." Sergeant Spranger admitted that he clubbed many of the strikers on the back and shoulders. "Did von strike any of them on the head ?" Attorney Mahoney asked. "Possibly," said Spranger. The ser geant said he could 'not recall saying to the officers on that occasion: "Knock a head wherever it shows." Oscar Benoit, the policeman who was stabbed (luring the riot, declared that he had been stabbed in the back by strikers just after several shots were fired at Garden and Union streets. "Oflicer Marshall and myself were try ing to turn the crowd back,, said Benoit. "The howling men closed in on us and I heard a pistol report and saw a flush. "Did vou see a woman then?" asked District Attorney Attwill. I did; I saw a woman fall. Just before that moment, Benoit said he felt a blow in the back, but paid lit tie attention to it. Atter the woman fell she was Anna Lopizzo the officer said, he went into the store where she was taken and discovered that he had been stabbed in the back. Asked by the district attorney if he saw Caruso that night, Benoit declared he saw him in the front row of the strik ers that rushed up to the cornpr of Gar den and Union streets, just before the woman was shot.

Trouty, chairman of the interstate com merce commission, says that President Mellen of the X. Y, N. H. & IT. R. R. was entirely wrong in his statement that notwithstanding the interstate commerce commission's investigator had made a report on the Bridgeport wreck on that road over a year ago, no recom mendation of precaution against such wrecks had ever been made by the com mission to the New Haven road. "What we did in that ease," said Judge Prouty,' is what we do in all such cases. A report was made by an in vestigator. That report was made to the interstate recommendations which applied to the case. A copy of that re port was sent by . the interstate com merce commission to the New York fc New Haven railroad company. If Mr. Mellen did not receive it, his road did. We did not recommend or order any changes in hia road, and we had no pow er to do o. but we sent a copy of the report of the expert who investigated the wreck, and it had the aproval of the interstate commerce commission."

New York, Oct. 20. Pennsylvania is passing through a new political experi ence in a campaign, the result of which appears in doubt. It is chiefly a bat tle of bosses, or leaders, and if Flinn, with his Bull Moose, can draw a large number of votes from the Republican party, the chances of the Democrats ap parently are very good. The state now is one of the conspicuous battlegrounds of the nation, and the irood people, who do nothing but vote in election, are bein, heavilv bombarded with political shot of varied sizes. President Taft's vacation ended yes terday as he, at Danville, Me., boarded a train for Boston. He left the latter city yesterday afternoon for Cambridge Springs, Fa., where to-day he will dc liver an address, after which he will re turn to Washington and attack a large lot of work which has accumulated. Colonel Roosevelt, in Bood physical trim, but slightly weak, yesterday re snnied in part political operations. 11 wrote several letters to Bull Moose lead ers and began preparation of the speech which he expects to deliver in New York next week. His physician says he is in surprisingly good condition and expects that his strength will return rapidly. Governor Wilson, assured that Colonel Roosevelt will recover, will resume his speaking campaign on Monday and booking dates to be filled before elec tion. Yesterday for a time, he dronned politics and went back to his college days by affixing his artistic signature to a few Princeton diplomas tor gradu ates who had studied under his adminis tration. Senator La Follette says it would not surprise him much if Wilson should be elected, ana if he shows Himself pro gressive" the senator will support his policies if he does not, then the senator will 'denounce liim with equal fervor."

San Francisco, Oct. 26, Senator Ed ward I. Wolfe, chairman of the Taft Republican minority convention, Pub lished here to-day a statement to the Taft Republicans throughout the state, in which he warns them that they can not use stickerg to place the names of Taft electors on the ballot, and that to write the names of such electors would do Mr. Taft's candidacy no good. The statement explained that there are no laft eletcors, nominated In California because of a decision of the state supreme court based upon "technical reasons. 'Even if a small percentage should write in the names of Taft electors," the statement continues, "they would be counted as scattering, and do no good to Mr. Taft's candidacy. For the first time in the history of this state, the member of the great Republican party are disfranchised. And it is within the power of Republicans to rebuke this ac tion in no uncertain way on November 5."

Brothers of England's Queen in Open Rupture. London, Oct. 20. H is an open sccre in court circles that Queen Mary's ef forts to bring her family into greater prominence than they have hitherto en joyed are being seriously hampered by the continual bickering which goes on between her brothers, the duke of Teck and Irince Alexander of Teck. The brothers, with their wives and families, have been occupying apart ments at Windsor castle, but owing to the strained relations existing between them it has been found necessary to find the duke fresh quarters at rrogmore, ihe duke and Prince Alexander are tern peramentally as unlike as chalk and cheese, and the latter's wife strongly disagrees with her sister-in-law on the subject- of bringing up children and oth er domestic matters. Altogether the Tecks, who are heartily disliked by the public, are far from being a happy family. Queen Mary and the duchess ot teck are. always at logger heads on the question of the education of their children, and the latter s daughters sre forever quarreling with their cousin, Princess Mary. Despite the fact that King George took his brother-in-law with him to India, it is an. open secret that he is not fond of the duke of Teck s company, lor the latjer, contemptuous ly styled "Fat Adolphus" by the man in the street, has an aggressive manner and differs from his royal relative on almost every subject.

Miss Margaret Fitz gerald and Miss Blanche Welter, the nurses who attended Colonel Roosevelt while he was a patient in a hospital here, have been granted a vacation. The young women complained of being tired out. Their weariness, they said, was not due altogether to the strain of tak ing care of the colonel, but to the large number of letters they have received, many of them from men w'ho had made proposals of marriage.

I cannot account for It. except on the theory that left handed persons are getting rare in all walks of life.
