NEW YOHK, Oct. 22. The an
nouncement of tbe "defense rests"
by John P. Melntyre, chief counsel
for police Lieutenant Charles Becker,
on trial here for the murder of
Gambler Herman Ro-enthnl, today
came as n thunderbolt from ti clear
sky to District Attorney Charles
Whitman, nnd Presiding Justice John
W. Goff. It had been expected, al
though Melntyre opposed the move,
tbnt Becker would take the stand.
Justice GofCs eye bulged with
nmazeniem. lie rumbled nevenil type
written sheets lying on bis de.sk, and,
turning to Becker's cbef counsel,
"Mr. Melntyre, in justice to tbe de
fendant, I desire the case re-opened
in uo fur as the defense Is concerned.
I desire you to recnll Jack Sullivan
and have him give further testimony
along the lines of the, conspiracy he
says existed. I will have him brought
to the courtroom immediately."
Astounded, Melntyre snnk bnck in
his seut, while tho sheriff hurried out
to get Sullivan.
Becker and all of Melntyre'H asso
ciates were anxious for the accused
man to testify. Melntyre, realizing
that the state was making elaborate
preparations to cross examine his
client, decided it would be too risky
to allow his client to take tho stand.
Sullivan rehashed much of the tes
timony given at his fanner examina
tion, lie declared that "Bridgey"
Webber hnd said to him:
"I know Becker is innocent, but
Rose is running this. He would plant
a frame-up on either Mayor Oaynor
or Commissioner Waldo if he hod to."
Continuing his direct testimony,
"Itoso to'd me that District Attor
ney Whitman had stipulated that he
would got them out of trouble if they
framed ft deal up on Becker."
Sullivan then told of. another talk
he had with Webber.
