'REAL' STORY GOES ROUNDS
"Wise" Ones Say Rosenthal Expect
ed to Be Handed $5000 Instead
of Five Bullets "When He
Left Metropole Hotel.
NEW YORK. July 27. (Special)
Mayor Gaynor has precipitated a new
controversy on the -police situation by
his refusal to call a special meeting1
of the Board of Aldermen, for the pur
pose of appointing1 a special commit
tee to Investigate the alleged connec
tion of the police "system" and1 the
murder of Gambler Rosenthal.

dermanlc finance committee, and the
leader of the board who presented the
petition to the Mayor requesting? him
to call & special meeting.-announced

Seven policeman were within 100
yard? of the Hotel Metropole when Her
man Rosenthal, the "squealing" gam
bler, was shot fo death there 11 days
ago. Since then 70 times seven mem
bers of the force have been investlgat
Ing the tragedy. Yet up to date none
of the investigators, apparently either
the uniformed ones or those in plain
clothes has heard what certain wise
Inhabitants of the metropolis allege to
be the real story of the murder.
Summarized, the story is that Her
man Rosenthal expected to be handed
$5000 instead of five bullets when he
stepped from the Metropole early on
the morning of July in. A "get-away
stake" of that amount had been prom
ised him If he would leave the city.
But he procrastinated a bit too long-
in deciding to accept the offer and in
the meantime a gang- of East Side
gunmen heard of it and beat him to it.

by the action, and insisted, over his
lawyer's protest, in making a statement
in which he said he was beiig "framed
up" by the District Attorney.

I said I would like to be cool and
wished I was in ' the water. As we
were passing over the river the cool
air condensed the gas in the bag and
it dropped. Pilot Jacobs, to see if I was

BIG CASH VAULT URGED
MACVEAGH PROPOSES OXE FOR
Secretary of Treasury Would Have
Five-Story Structure Built t'n
derground in Xew Tork.
WASHINGTON, July 27. A steel
ribbed indestructible five-story vault,
sunk in the earth beneath the United
States Assay Office In New York, and
capable of holding $2,000,000,000 in
gold, is planned by Secretary Mac
Veagh, of the Treasury Department.
This project, the largest money vault
In the world, requires the sanction of
Congress and has already received a
favorable report from the House com
mittee on appropriation.
Looking into the future, Secretary
MacVeagh believes the vault Is a nec
essity, for the convenience and .safety
of the Nation's wealth. Gold is pur
chased by the United States Govern
ment at the rate of $100,000,000 a year.
This treasure against which gold
certificates are issued, is distrib
uted the country over In the vaults of
the treasury, subtreasurles. mints and
assay offices. Within a few years, it Is
estimated, the entire storage capacity
of these buildings will have been con
sumed. If authorized, the big vault will be
erected under the proposed new front
portion of the assay office. It will
cost $322,000, while the building stand
ing over It will cost only $225,000. Gold
bullion, turned Into bars, will be piled
In the structure like bricks. While
this storehouse could hold all the Gov
ernment's gold at the present time, it
is not the intention to amass it in New
York, but to reserve the space for fu

NEW ARMY POST IS PREDICTION
Southwestern Washington Believes
Recommendation Slay Result.
ABERDEEN. Wash., July 27. (Spe
lo a lame Army post, one of the
largest in the world, will be located In
Southwestern Washington, either at
Gate or between there and Centralla,
or near Olympia, if Army officers" sug
gestions shall be heeded by the War
Department chiefs. This Is considered
in well-informed circles here not oniy
as one probable result of the Army ma
neuvers of the past ten days, but Is
believed to have been largely Instru
mental In the selection of this territory
for the maneuvers.
The victory of the Red army, repre
senting a foreign force supposed to
have been landed on Grays Harbor for
an invasion of the Sound cities and to
Tnpn.ice Portland, is believed in Army
circles to forecast the situation as to
what would follow should a toreign
force actually land on Grays Harbor.
It is possible that coast fortifications
will be ursred for both Grays Harbor
and Willapa Harbor, but Army officers
are quoted here today as saying tnat
such fortifications, if established, would
be valueless unless backed by a large
mobile land force.
They say that It will be necessary to
establish a post somewhere near Cen
tralla which should Include in-Its gar
rison Infantry, cavalry and field artil
lery and which would be so located as to
be able to resist a foreign force landed
either on Grays Harbor or Willapa
Harbor, or at both points at once. It is
hinted among Army officers, who re
fuse to be quoted publicly, that General
Maus probably will recommend the es
tablishment of such a post.

Representative Gardner, of Massachu

"I know the world is censorous," Mr.
Gardner declared, "and I fear it might
say that the minority of the steel com

views if I were to neglect to point out
that we gave our views to the press In
confidence for future publication sev

The decision of the dockers' leaders
to order the men to return to work Is
taken as a result of their failure to or
ganize a general strike of the trans
port workers of the country In sym
pathy with the London men.
Although large funds have been
raised for the relief of the men's fam

slight, as compared with the extent
of the distress.
Some of the leaders, too, lost the

threats of violence.
