MAN WHO HIRED CAR FOUND
Whitman Savs Trail Leads
Where He Thought It Did.
GAYNOR IN CONFERENCE
leading Police Official May Be

Moment "Jack" Rose Tells of
Movements of Gray Car.
NEW TORK, July IS. The trail
leads where I thought It did." re
marked District Attorney Whitman late
This was Just after he had heard the
statement of "Jack" Rose, the friend
of Police Lieutenant Charles Becker
and the man who hired the gray au
tomobile In which the slayers of Her
man Rosenthal, the gambler, drove to
the crowded corner where they shot
him early last Tuesday morning.
Motive Betas Made Plain.
Little by little the tangled skein of
motives and personalities behind the
murder is being unravelled and tonight
It seems probable that other Important
arrests will follow speedily.
Rose's surrender and confession that
he hired the "murder car," although
declaring he was not In It. were the
big events today, but other" develop
ments were not lacking.
Mayor Gaynor took a personal hand
In the Investigation. He sent for Lieu
tenant Becker, against whom were
lodged Rosenthal's first charges that
the police force was both protecting
and bleeding gamblers. The Mayor, Po
lice Commisioner Waldo and tlfree
other policemen were closeted for two
Mayor Expresses Surprise.
No statement of - what was said
came out, hut the Mayor later took oc
casion to give out a letter he sent yes
terday to the commissioner expressing
surprise that Becker should sit. down
to dinner with a man of Rosenthal's
character. "That he did seems -to-be
admitted," the Mayor commented. . .
District Attorney Whitman had his
say In a letter sent to Commissioner
Waldo today, relating to the com
missioner's request for an Immediate
and complete investigation of allega
tions of partnership between police
men and gamblers.
"When you asked this before," wrote
Mr. Whitman, "Herman Rosenthal, who
had made the charge, was alive. I had
proceeded so far that he was to appear
before the grand Jury and give details
and names of other gamblers to sub
stantiate his charge. On the night pre
ceding the day fixed, he was assassin
ated, evidently by men who feared his
testimony, or their agents, on the prin
ciple that dead men tell no tales."
Official May Be Arrated.
It was reported about police head
quarters this afternoon that the arrest
of a leading police official soon would
take place In connection with the mur
der of Rosenthal.
Hundreds of the gambling fraternity
attended the funeral of Rosenthal to
day. Aaron J. Levy, counsel for Louis U to
by and William Shapiro, who are un
der arrest and are the alleged owners
of the "murder car." gave out a state
ment regarding Shapiro's conduct at
the time of the murder. Shapiro has
admitted, according to the police, that
he was the driver of the car.
"Shapiro," said Levy, "told me that
after the shooting he was working with
his motor and pretended It would not
start. One of the party said: 'Don't
stall that engine. You had better get
it started and be quick about It."
"Cops Are Fixed" Is Word.
"Shapiro still hesitated and one of
the party said: 'Go on. you fool; get
started; don't you know that the cops
are fixed and no one will bother us. It
is a clean get-away.' "
Police Commissioner Waldo announced
the suspension of Patrolman William J.
File, who was In the Hotel Metropole
off duty at the time of the murder and
unsuccessfully pursued in a taxicab the
automobile In which the murderers es

Writer Says Defense Had Agreed to

Firmness In Hope It Still :

LOS ANGELES. July 18. Lincoln
StefTens took the stand today for tbe
defense In the brioery trial of Clarence
S. Darrow and gave his version of tbe
history of the McNamaras" pleas of
Steffens' story accentuated what ap
pears now to be the crucial issue in the
case whether the agreement to have
the McNamara brothers plead guilty
was sanctioned by Darrow more than
a week previous to the alleged bribery
of Juror Lockwood. as asserted by the
defense, or whether, as contended by
the prosecution, the negotiations vir
tually had lapsed because of the un
willingness of Darrow to allow John J.
McNamara to plead guilty.
That this would be the stand of the
prosecution was indicated by District
Attorney Fredericks, who declared that
it would be shown that the negotia
tions were not brought to the climax
until a bribery expose which compelled
Darrow, as chief counsel, to submit to
the terms of the .prosecution that both
McNamaras plead guilty.
Appearaaee of Fight Kept Up.
StefTens declared without qualifica
tion that Darrow and the McNamara
brothers had consented before the ar
rest of Franklin, but it had been de
cided to continue negotiations with the
ultimate object of saving John J. McNa
mara, if possible. To this end Attorney
Lecompte Davis was sent to the District
Attorney's office to keep up an appear
ance of resolution, with an ultimatum
that there would be no settlement if
John J. McNamara had to plead guilty.
The witness gave his residence as
Riverside, Conn., and his occupation as
reporter. He said that he came to Los
Angeles on November 10,1911, and that
the settlement of th McNamara case
was first discussed at a meeting be
tween E. W. Scrlpps, a newspaper pro
prietor. Mr. Darrow and himself at the
home of Mr. Scrlpps In San Diego,
where they were guests on November
19. The next day he began to work on
the proposition, he said, first laying it
before Meyer Lissner, progressive Re
publican leader of Southern California,
and later before a committee of repre

Frightful Accident Occurs Near
Pendleton When Farmhand
Is ai Work.
PENDLETON. Or, July 18- (Spe
cial.) One of the most frightful acci
dents recorded in the county occurred
at noon today, when a team of mules
driven by Henry Doan. a rancher on
Little McKay Creek, became unman
ageable and ran away in the field where
James Doan was operating a mower.
As the mules struck the mower the
machine was overturned and the team
of horses drawing It started off at a
mad gait. . Doan was thrown from his
seat and dragged for a considerable dis
tance, one wheel of the mower passing
over his body. Having freed them
selves from the mower and driver, the
excited team dashed on until a deep
open well was encountered and both
animals plunged into the same.
Before aid could reach them the
horses were dead. The injured man,
James DfJan. was rushed by automobile
to the hospital, where it was found his
hip was broken, and only by skilled
surgical aid were two fingers on his
left hand saved. A long scalp wound
was also sustained, as well as severe
body bruises and cuts.
Witnesses to the accident marvel
that Doan was not killed outright
when the wheei of the mower passed
over him. That he escaped without
being cut to pieces by the mower Is
considered marvelous. Physicians say
he will recover.

PUGET SOUND NAVY-YARD, July
18. (Special.) Ordering the close of
Charleston gate of the Navy-Yard to
all sailors and marines, thus practi
cally' cutting the town of Charleston
off from all trade from the yard, Rear
Admiral V. L. Cottman has made an
emphatic protest against the refusal
of Charleston City Council to revoke
the license of the fourth saloon in the
Charleston formerly had four sa
loons, but one of the licenses was re
voked last year because the place was
Improperly conducted. This left but
three bars, and the city authorities so
reported to Admiral Cottman at the
beginning of this year.
Since that time the new marine bar
racks have been completed and occu
pied at the Charleston end of the yard.
Recently George W. Dane, a rancher
and former saloon man, applied for the
fourth license and, having no record
against him. was granted it.
The Charleston City Council con
tends that inasmuch as there were four
saloons operating last year, the new
license to Dane cannot be considered
as an extra saloon.
Meanwhile there is considerable feel
ing on both sides of tbe controversy.
