Fireman Rescued.
Vancouver, Aug. 2.���The city was
visited last evening hy another die
astrous blaze which, before It was
extinguished, did some $60,000 worth
of damage. The fire originated ln an
unknown manner iu the third floor ol
the Max Freed building, 54 Hastings
Btreet west, and gutted the entire
four stories.
The building is occupied by Mr.
Freed as a furniture store, and the
flames licked their way through the
entire stock with alarming rapidity.
The first alarm was turned in by a
man named A. Biolet at 9:30 o'clock.
Took  It Calmly.
The National theatre, which is next
door east of the Freed store, was occupied by some fifteen hundred people when the first alarm was sent, in
hut the entire audience marched out
of the building without any disorder.
Owlug to the fact thut Hastings,
street is torn up at this time by the
B. C. E. R. as new rails are being laid
down, the firemen were considerably
hampered in their flre flghting work.
Fireman   Overcome.
Onl.v one accident is reported, that
of Fireman Souten, who was overcome by the dense smoke. Captain
Jack Lottttg, of station No. 2, stumbled
across the insensible bodv of Souten.
and carried him from the hurnlng
building amid the cheers of the onlookers. The blaze was finally put out
a little after 1 o'clock, the damage
being ccnflned to the Freed building

Cave in Land and Timber���Reduction
in Area Is Accountable for
Fallln? Off.
Although the receipts of the month
at the provincial government land
agency were somewhat lower than tbe
corresponding month in 1911, Mr. S.
A. Fletcher, the agent, explains the
falling off as the result of a portion
of the Westminster land district being transferred to the Kamloops district. Receipts for the thirty days
just concluded were $11,260.10, while
in July. 1911, $12,534.36 was received.
At the crown timber office the total
monies taken in during the month
amounted to $5247.21, as against
$6764.44 ln 1911. the difference being
explained by the fact that the area
under control of the local office has
also been materially reduced since
last year's statistics were compiled.
The returns from the customs department which Include the chief
port of Westminster and outlying
ports reach the very respectable total
of $45,729.68, divided as follows: Chief
port, $26,297.17; outports, $19,432.51.
A substantial increase Is noted in
the Dominion land office, the total
receipts being $1996.82, as against
$1577.70 during the corresponding
month last year. The receipts of the
month just concluded were comprised
as follows: Lands. $237.12; mines.
$1759.65;   total, $1996.82.
In almost every deoartmeut, the
cost office excelled last year's to'..ila

the month as compiled by Mr. John
W. MacDonald. the postmaster, are
as follows: Money orders Issued.
2354; amount received on money
order commissions, $343.45; box rent
receipts $360.75: stamp sales, $3693.50.

Unprecedented Demand   for   Crushed
Ro;!; Dct3 Piver with Straining  Craft.
Thc magnitude of road work and
street Improvement throughout the
southern mainland Is manifested by
the difficulties of Messrs. Gilley Bros,
to supply their customers witli road
rocking material.
The river ls daily a scene of puffing
and straining tugs pulling rook laden
scows, to the Gilley Bros, wharves.
The firm supplies Now Westminster,
Burnaby, South Vancouver, Richmond
and Delta municipalities. Its own
quarries on the Pitt river are absolutely incompatible with the demand,
although they furnish between 400 and
500 yards dally.
Yesterday there arrived at the
quays of the firm two scows of crushed rqgk trom Victoria, representing
560 yards, one from Vancouver with
200 yards, and four from Pitt river
quarries, all laden to their utmost
capacity.
The firm is by no means enthused
over this buying from external
sources, but its engagements must
be kept up oven lf at a pecuniary loss
In tho meantime. Next year an increase of plant ls determined upon
which will increase the output at its
own quarries to such an extent as
will obviate emergency deals.
As an illustration of the colossal
operations going cn at the Pitt river
quarries last Saturday's blast may be
mentioned. At one explosion, utilizing three and a half tons of dynamite,
140,000 yards of rock were displaced.
Other building material ls also In
great demand, the steel freighter
Leon a, Captain Cochrane, which arrived recently from England round
the Horn, ls expected again tomorrow
morning from Tod inlet, near Victoria,
with a cargo of cement.
NEW HOSPITAL ANNEX

JULY WEATHER
Past Month Waa Generally Fine-
Year Aoo Was Even Better.
Slightly over three quarters of the
time fine weather prevailed In the
montli of July just concluded. This Is
according to the readings of the registering barometer at the City hall
observatory. The actual number of
flne days was twenty-flve and on six
oocastonB when the sun neglected tn
shine a total rainfall for the month
of 1.86 Inches Is recorded.
Comparison of these figures with
those of the corresponding month

WESTMINSTER'S MEMBER

Mr. A. S. Ooodeve, now a member of
the railway commission.

Will Take Up Matter.
Mr. Lake promised the carriers
that he would take up this question
with the Dominion executive committee, at the earliest possible convenience, representing to the committee
the Justice of the request '
Another topic under discussion was
the cramped quarters of many of the
departments here.
Mr. Lake met many of the pub:'c
servants of New Westminster for the
first time yesterday, previous commissions in tbe city being of the nature
of a cursory examination rather than
an exhaustive search after facts,
which typified this visit.
Mr. Lake met the civil servants of
Vancouver last evening, and It is his
intention to leave this afternoon for
Ottawa, stopping at pralrle cities on
his way east.
July, tbe flrst month in the second
lap of tbe year, has seen the commencement and completion of many
public improvements in Westminster.
It is considered that the changes in
the main have been made possible by
the successful presentation and ratification of the June by-laws aggregating one million, one hundred and
ninety thousand dollars. In addition
to this, however, several stupenduous
local Improvement schemes, and private enterprises, have added their
quota until lt can be said with every
truth that the city ls now financially
at the highest point ever attained
since Incorporation.
A glance at the record made by the
board of works and the engineering
department during the month gives
convincing argument of progress
while the balance cf street work aud

portant harbor improvement scheme

The reason for the record breaking
day is on account of the permit for
the Tipperary Park High school being issued. This permit has been delayed, notwithstanding the fact that
the contractors have been working on
the Royal avenue site for some time
installing concrete foundations. Final
arrangements between the school
board and Messrs. Adkinson and Dill
were made yesterday, however, and
the permit was issued without delay.
Other permits issued were as follows: Annie McGillivary, seven roomed house on Sixth avenue, $2200; E.

George Kennedy, storage shed on

Thence a trip waa made north to the

The different canneries were visited, and from observations made, a
fair run ot salmon ls expected considering that this ls an off year. Up
north-a visit was .paid to the large
canneries being erected by the B. C.
Fisheries company, at the head of
which Is Sir Henry Doughty. The
buildings' are nearly completed, and
preparations are belug made to operate the plant when the herring sea
son opens in January next.
This Ib the flrst visit ot Mr. Found
to these northern points of British
Columbia, and according to Mr. Cunningham, he was much impressed j
with the inmense poBsib'llties of the
northern country, especially with reference to deep sea fishing,
'Another feature of the trip \vj.s the
inspection of the plant of the Cann-
1'an Cold Storage company at Prince

The Dominion fishery boats Falcon,

at different /times In taking the party
from one point to another.
New   Westminster  is  not  the only
place  in  Canada at present that    is
moving  forward, at  least one  would
judge so from the remarks of Mr.   S.
Fader, ot tho   Investors'    Investment \
company,   -who   returned     yesterday
trom a short visit to the Okanagan
district, where he visited the towns,
or the cities as the residents are woot
to call them, of Vernon aud Enderty.
Vernon, according to Mr. Fader, is
prospering under one of the  biggest
booms that ever occurred in its history and a railroad one at that    It
seems  that the citizens    and    every
other   person   interested   have   been
notified   that the controlling officials j

Announcement Today���Salmon
Bellies Workout.
Despite the alarming reports spread
abroad by a Vancouver evening paper,
the lacrosse tangle Is settled, and tbe
two teama will resume operations
once more tomorrow afteruoon at
Vancouver.
The action of Matt Barr in offering
the olive branch to the manager of
the Salmon Bellies was not altogether
concurred in. by his fellow associates
on the Vancouver executive, but a
little confab last evening soon made
them realiie that unless the two
teams hitch up this ween the chances
of New Westminster continuing to
have relations with the green shirts
for this season at least, would disappear. Thus with a slight change
in the schedule everything passed off
quite swimmingly.
Motion Rescinded.
Later in the evening a special meeting of the association was beld when
the motion   of   the Vancouver   delegates, paased at the    last    meeting,
which precipitated the whole trouble,
was rescinded.   In Its 'stead one was
put through changing the schedule In
a manner satisfactory to both teams.
This will mean that tlie game scheduled for September 14 at Vancouver
has been advanced to August Ul    ln
the same city.   The Westminster delegates have tbe option ot playing   the
game of   September 21   either   upon
tbat date or on September 14.
As yet no referees have been   appointed by tbe commission, although
that hody  is expected  to  meet    thla
morning.    Some speculation is being
made aa to how It will view the out- _.....

The west end sewer system' will be

al'^wed   the   contractors to   proceed
'."ith scarcely any delay.   This system
Includes fron Te"th   to   Fourteenth
and  with  the other two certain the f
citizens appear to be fully justified in
believing that their town will be one
of the largest In the province.
Mr. Fader states that there are several fine buildings being erected in
the city, and he saw great Improvements in it since his previous visit a
little over a year ago. The flne new
post office is practically completed
and preparations are being made to
open it in a short time. The new
court house building which the government decided to have built at Vernon some time ago is now well under way, and when it is completed tt
Is said that it will be one of the
flnest structures in the upper country.
The business blocks in the city are
built on the latest modern style, and
the stores would do credit to a larger
city.
Talking about the weather, Mr.
Fader declares that ho never knew
what real heat was till he went up
there. "It was something fierce," "he
said, "and the mosqultos are unbearable and give the people practically
no rest. In fact," continued the realty
broker. "1 found these two things the
only drawbacks to the city, which I
must say has a great future before it."
While ln the country Mr. Fader paid
a visit to some ot the ranches and a
look at tbe growing fruit convinced 1
him that this yearns trutt harvest'
would be a record one both for quantity and quality. This refers partle-e-
laily to apples and plums, which fruit
nreponderates. The other lines of
the farm produoe growing in the dls
trlot are also doing excellently, and

New York, Aug. 1.���An operation on
the heart was performed this morning
in Bellevue Hospital by Dr. William
C. Lusk, in which thirty-six feet of
gold wire were wrapped around the
aorta, the great artery leading from
1 the heart, and a current of electricity
sent through the wire which reduced
the swelling of the artery sufficiently
to allow it to perform its natural fauctions.
The operation took place in the
Crane room and was witnessed by
the medical faculty of Bellevue and
about 50 of the leading surgeons of
New York. No anaesthetic was used
during the operation, but the incision,
which was made in the back of the
patient, between the fifth and sixth
ribs, was sprayed with cocaine. At
the close of the operation, which lasted about four hours, Dr. Lusk expressed himself as satisfied, and.
while  the operation  Is  not  expected
^^^^^^^^^^^^^ lt ls ex
pected to prolong his life
The patient who underwent the operation was Oscar  Neilson, 50   years
gold wire, attached to a   cannulated
needle, was run through and wrapped
around the aorta.   The wire was thinner than a hair and after it had been
wound    around the artery ln   spiral
fashion, the   end   in the needle was
j taken out and attached   to an   elec-
l trical machine, the current of which
| was turned on and sent through the
wire.     The electricity hardened   the
| artery, and in a short t'me the blood
I started to circulate freely through the
j aorta and at the same time the heart
was allowed to perform Its functions.
The patient was under observation for
a period, after which the wound was
' closed up.
This is the second,.operation of its
kind performed in this country. The
previous operation was performed in
Bellevue by the same surgeon. The
operation took place live months ago,
the patient at the time being Henry
Griffin. Twelve feet of gold wire
was used on Griffin, after it was said
he would not live a week. Two weeks
later he left the hospital and Is today
| well and hearty. It was satd at the
hospital last night that Neilson had already showed improvement and that
it was only a question of time when
he would be ready to leave the hospital.

The patient waa acquainted with
the facts and told the risk of the operation, but readily consented. Owing
to the seriousness of the operation
the regular operating room was not
chosen, but Instead the Crane room
was decided upon and a supervising
nurse was stationed outside the door
to prevent interruptions. Only
physicians were admitted to the room.
The patient wa3 brought into the
room on a stretcher, weak and suffering. An examination waB made by Dr
Lusk, who announced that the ad
ministration of an anaesthetic such a?
ether or chloroform would be a
needless risk, and decided to use cocaine locally.

Emperor's Order to Resume���Is
Hailed   Everywhere.
Tokyo, Aug. 1.���Business in the capital and generally throughout the
country, which came to a standstill
with the death on Tuesday morning
of the Emperor MuLsuiilto. has been
resumed. Emperor Yoshlhito having
expressed the desire that there be no
further cessation owing to the losses
*nta!led on the roor people and the
interference with International exchanges.
The Japanese foreign office has notified the foreign powers that the imperil birthday has been changed from
Nov. 3 (Mutsuhito's natal day), to
Aug. 31 (Yoshihito's birthday).
After the farewell taken of the Inte
Emperor's bodv bv the members ofthe
imperial family, the corpse was deposited in a casket with a quadruple
covering and placed In a special
mourning chamber.
On his way to the Aoyama Palace,
where it is understood he will reside
until after the funeral, Emperor Yoshlhito was given a great ovation.
-ord  Charles  Beresford Calls Attention lo Lack of Men for British
Navy.
London, Aug. 1.���The article printed in the London Dally Express yesterday, affirming that Germany is secretly building nine new battleships,
is regarded seriously by Admiral Lord
Charles Beresford as is evidenced by
a letter to the editor of that paper,
printed this morning.    He says:
"Sir���Our position Is much .more
serious than the First Lord of the Admiralty (Mr. Winston Churchill) dare
confess. He can not find crews for
eight additional battleships; there are
not enough men now for active service in the fleet alone. The First
Lord's statements on the subject are
Inconsistent with one another.
On June 11 last he Informed me, in
answer to a question, that there was
a deficiency iu the navy's personnel
qn March 31 of 2400 men. On July 22
following, he told the House of Commons that we started 2000 short. He
is now trying to recruit 5000 men this
year. It is exceedingly doubtful if he
can get them, but if he does and if he
was speaking the truth on July 22
and another thing on June 11, the actual increase will be only 3000 and
these can not be given to the fleet until they are trained.
"It ia useless to build ships without
crews but that is exactly what has
been done for the past seven years.
The results are colossal expenditures,
a large collection of empty ships and
the immediate menace cf a great and
Increasing danger.
"There ia one thing which can be
done by mcatiB of suspending the present organization and by using all the
men available, and that is to man the
fleet and do it now."
BODY  FOUND
Young   Bethman,  Missing  One  Week.

Vancouver. Aug. 1.���The bodv cf
Bruco Bethman, a stepson of Mr
Thomas Harvey, residing at 1364
Sixth avenue west, was yesterday afternoon found floating in False cree'.;
under the old Granville street br'dge.
The remains were removed to Harroe
Bros' undertaking parlors where they
were later identified as those of the
unfortunate lad. who had been missing from his home since July 24.
On the day young Bethman left his
home, saying he was going boating on
English Bay. The boat which he
used was found later overturned.
MORMONS IN  MEXICO
Head of Church Advises Them to

Los Angeles. Aug. 1. ��� Joseph
Smith, president of the Mormon
Church, who is a visitor at one of the
beach resorts near here, sent messages yesterday to Mormons In the
State of Chichuahua, Mexico, advising
them to leave the country until the insurrection Is quelled.
The colonists are opposed to intervention by the United Statea according to President Smith, who said he
hnd advised the state department at
Washington to take no steps towardi
intervention because of the danger of
every American in the rebel zone.
President Smith sent a message on
Tuesday to General Orozco and Salazar, petitioning them to protect colonists against the wandering bands.

show the extent to which   this   is a
sacrifice of the future to the present.
There are a multitude of difficulties
besetting  conservation  on   the   high
seas. Newfoundland enforces the sealing close season in spring through her
monopoly ot men.   Sealers from other countries must come to Newfoundland for crews, and must then   conform to her stipulations.   The United
States, urged by the persistence of  a
strong private   interest,   secured   the
prohibition of fur sealing on the Pacific through  an   agreement   by  the
strong   nations to take care   of the |
weaker.   The Atlantic fisheries threat-!

which run in the gulf during the winter seasons. The strain on the hull
has opened some ot her seams and although the copper is a great protection against the teredo it has been
found to be a difficult matter to repair the hull with the sheeting on, bo
the department has ordered it removed.
It is not expected that the lightship
will be ready to return to her moorings before the end of next week.
While the vessel is absent from her
moorings a gas-lighted buoy marks
the entrance to the Fraser river.
The steamer Cascade, under charter to the marine department, will
leave port on Monday carrying stores
and supplies to the light houses and
beacons tn the gulf as far as the Sisters Light.

statistics just published. T'.-.ese show-
that 2614 suicides and 450 attempts at
suicide of officers and enlisted men
have occurred in the last ten years.
The figures are the highest for any
army lri Europe, and the proportion ls
sixteen times greater than the total
suicides ln the entire population ot
the monarchy.
Motives were ascertainable In only
about one-half of the cases. The records show that the most frequent
causes were fear of punishment, love
affairs, unwillingness to serve in the
army and ill treatment.
The high number of suicides is all
the more remarkable because it is
generally considered that Austrian
soldiers are well treated in ccrmpari

states.

Victoria  Comes to Queens  Park  Tomorrow���Line-up Shows  Little
Chance.
The lacrosse game between the
Senior Amateurs and tho Victoria
twelve which is scheduled for Queens
park on Saturday afternoon should
provide the tit-bit of the amateur
game for this season. At the present
time both teams have won their home
games and a win for Victoria on Saturday would place them in the running for the championship which
carries with it the Mann cup.
However, under new management,
the local teams are going great guns
at this stage of the season, as demonstrated ou Saturday last when they
put the kibosh on the Fairviews in
Vancouver, and all the boys feel confident that they are capable of turning the trick on the Capitals.
The line-up wil show a little change
from that of the last game, Coulson
being hetween the sticks. It is possible that Bert Johnston, the crack
home of the Sapperton intermediates,
will also be seen on the team. Although he has not much weight about
him. the. Sapperton boy has demonstrated this season that when It comes
to shooting, no one has the horse
shoes on him.
The game is scheduled to start at
2:30 o'clock, In order to allow the
Moose and Maple heats to Bettie their
little argument as to who's who In
baseball.
The Tne-up of the Senior Amateurs
w-ill be as follows:
Goal. R. Coulson; point, Willis
Patchell; cover point, E. Cotton; first
defence e. Cooper; second defence,
1,. Gregory, thhd d'-fence, H. Battson;

THE
Just why Ty Cobb is regarded as
the greatest Individual player In baseball today was well Illustrated the
last time the Tigers played ln Phlla
delphia. The Tigers are trailing this
year and they are up against the
champions of the universe, yet Ty
Shone like a Kohinoor diamond. Eddie Collins, second sacker of the
champions, is some quick thinker and
mover himself, yet It was on Collins
that Cobb pulled his play. It ls worth
telling about:
Mack's men had beaten the Tigers
4 to 3 ln the flrst battle, which wac
close and exciting throughout, and
when the second game started, the
crowd, which numbered fully 25,000
persons, was In a hilarious humor.
SudHenly something happened right at
'he start of the second game, which
first had the crowd dumbfounded and
then caused the wildest enthusiasm
over a play made by a visitor.
Cobb was on first as the result of
an infield hit. On the flrBt pitch to
Crawford Ira Thomas, the big backstop of the chamDS, loafed, and so
Cobb pulled the delay steal to perfection. There was no chance of getting Cobb, but Thomas' throw got
away from Collins and rolled about
eight or ten feet from the bag. Te
the amazement of the crowd. Cobb
streaked it for third. So ��� completely
waa Collins fooled that he did not
throw, as he never had a chance to
get Tyrus.
Instead of sliding into third and be-
*ne satisfied that he reached that bag
Cobb, with his eyes open and upon his
toes, noticed that Collins was walking
leisurely toward the pitcher's box.
Right then Cobb darted for the plate.
Thomas was standing in front of the
plate with his mask in his hand and
was also caught napping. Ira handled
Collins' throw perfectly, but Cobb.
with a great fall-away slide, got away
from Thomas.
As the Tigers only won the second
gRP'o by the score of 6 to 5, lt can
easily be seen just what this rur
meant to the Tigers. The speed of
Cobb was never more apparent, and
the crowd went home thoroughly satisfied that there is only one Cobb lr
this world when It come3 to national
pastimlng.

Religious  Ritas   Follcw   Evary   ProivtSS
of Thair Making.
The sword making of .lapan \a perhaps the most curious in the whole
world, in dint country swords satd to
be equal to those ot Toledo or Damascus are made by a special series of
proeessfn, but a feuture of the Industry
Is the religious ceremonial tiiat accompanies every process.
On the walls of the huts In which
the work is done nre representations of
tbe god of the sword makers and the
chief goddess of the Shlntos. Tbere
are ulso bits of paper and wisps of
struw. charms to kvep away evil spirits. No female Is allowed to enter tbe
place, as the presence of women Is supposed to be conducive to the appearance of demons, who would certainly
bring disaster to the sword's mission.
Prayer is offered hefore ibe work begins, and vnrious religious rites must
be performed before any oue of the '
���words can be declared to have been j
well sod truly made.
The Inot thing that tskes place after '
the polishing and sharpening of tbe
swords Is the offering of them one by
one to lhe sword god to tte blessed.
The weapon is pluivd In front of the
kitkrmoini cn the wall, with an offering
of Kuki. rice and sweetmeats, after
which prayer scrolls are read and a
blessing upon tbe werk ta invoked.���

BURBAGE, THE ACTOR.
He Waa ths First to Appear In Shakespeare'* Leading Role*.
The flrst actor to personate Shake-,
speure's leading characters wns Rich-
ard Burbnge. who was probably born
in the same year wltf. Shakespeare,
and whose name stands next to that of
Shakespeare In the licences for acting
granted to the compimy ut the Globe
theater. In London, by James I. In
1603 Burbuge was performing at the
Globe theater on the ulgbt of June lil),
1C13, when that edifice was burned.
This was shortly after Shakespeare
had given up the stage nnd retired
upon a competency to bis native town
of Stratford, lt is said tbat because
of this disaster not one line of a drama
by Shakespeare. In bis handwriting or
ln the handwriting of tbat period, bus
been preserved.
Burbnge died   March  1��.  1618.  two
years' nfter Shakespeare, nud bis death
was the occasion for much more elegiac effusion than hud followed the death
of his great  but   modest  friend     The
poets, wbo hud  been wider heavy  obligations to Hie Hctnr. felt bis loss severely und gave hlm what post mortem
payment  they could,    it Is said  that
Burbnge was also a successful painter

State ot Alabama.
It Is not generally known that tbe
state tiird of Alabama Is tbe yellow
bummer. In explanation ot this tact
the chairman of the tish uud gume
commission of the state writes as follows'.
"As a matter of history It Is known
that Confederate uulforms became
scarce toward tbe end of tbe war;
therefore In order io provide the gnl-
laut Confederates witb proper clothing
tbe good women picked the cotton,
carded It Into rolls, syun them into
thread, wove lt un bome made looms
into cloth, and then they were distressed to find thnt they did not bnve
nor could they procure tbe dye with
which to color the cloth they hud
mude. Tbey deliberated over this
vexed question for many days, and
linully un Ingenious dame suggested
tbut hickory bark be boiled and ili.it
tbe cloth l>e dipped Iuto tbe yellow
water thut would result from the boil
tng process.
"The happy thought was enthusl

EVIDENCE AGAINST
BECKER IS GROWING
First Plot to Murder Rosenthal Failed
���Graft Story la Not Exaggerated
New York, Aug. 1.���Steps towards
the corroboration of the confessions
implicating Police Lieut. Becker In
murder of Herman Rosetnthal, are to
be made carefully and slowly, so that,
-as District Attorney Whitman says,,
the "whole truth of the relations be- j
tween the gamblers and the police
will come oui."
Satisfactory progress is being made
by Mr. Whitman ln supplying the missing links In the confessions of "Bald
'.Jack" , Rose, "Bridgle" Webber and
Harry Vallon, who In their stories to
the public prosecutor, said that Becker instigated them in the killing of, Hlooa..
Rosenthal. Mr. Whitman says he has j ��g[K jacj5
obtained some Important testimony I - ���
confirming parts of the Rose and
Webber stories that they met Lieut.
Becker by appointment after the murder. Two restaurant employees, according to the district attorney, have
given the Information that they saw
Becker talking with Rose and Webber ca Forty-second street after the
killing.
The appearance of Sam Schepps is
keenly awaited at the prosecutor's office. Schepps, according to the story
told by Rose to the district attorney,
received $1000 in bills from- Rose
which Becker handed to him. Rose
says Schepps gave this money to
Harry Horrowitz, otherwise known as
""Gib the Blood," and Louis Rosenz-
weig.
The statement of Jack Rose that an
annual tribute of $2,400,000 has been
exacted by the polica from gamblers
and others for "protection" Is not considered extravagant by many of those
familiar with conditions in the underworld of New York city. As a matter
of teet the amount stated Is nearly
$700,000 a year less than was collected some twelve years ago, according
to an alleged erpose of the gambling
system, published, by New York newspapers la Match, 1900. This article,
which created a great sensation at
the time, alleged that $3,095,000 was
yearly tribute of keepers of gambling
houses to thq pcllce and otlier departments cf the city for "protection."
The article and Its assertions that
men "higher up In Tammany Hall"
had Been receiving monev from the
| gambling combine led to the appointment of a committee of five, of which
Louis Nixon was chairman, to inves-
ttlgate the truth of the charges. In
|ils official report Mr. Nixon said:
There is an organization of men
Sown as the 'Combine' that is organ-
id for ByBtematic blackmail, and
\y cloak their workings by pretend-
'to hn working for Tammany, and
thr money collected for protection
ire supposed   to furnish   In Its
the crime.   Rose, Vallnsky and Wei,
ber have all confessed.
SAM PAUL, head of the Sam Paul
Association ("50 per cent respectable," according to its members), on
whose outing the murder is believed
to have ben planned.
JACOB R1SH, alias "Jack Sullivan,"
ex-newsboy and friend qf Becker and
Rose; he wa3 with Rose on the afternoon before the murder, and rede uptown with Becker to Webber's placo,
about the time the murder was committed; held a j a witness under $100
bail.
WILLIAM SHAPIRO, chauffeur of
the grey "murder car" used by Rose
and Vallon; he is Bald to have made
mny important admissions Bince his
arrest.

was thought to have driven lt.

50 envelope games $50 each por
month, $30,000.
Pcllcv $125,000.
Total, $3,096,000.
The case against Becker was apparently strengthened last night when
"Bald Jack" Rose and "Bridgle"
Webber added another chapter to
their already amazing allegations.
They told District Attorney Whitman
that Rosenthal was to have been killed at the Instigation of-Becker ten
days before he actually mt hls fate
and that the plot failed because the
underworld thugs selected to do the
murder lost their nerve at,the laBt
moment.
The district attorney spent the
greater part of the afternoon-with
Rose and Webber ln their cells at
the West Side Police Station and under the promise of leniency, which
the prosecutor has given them, they
talked freely.
The plot that failed was to have
been brought to Its climax at the Oar-
den Restaurant, on Fifty-first street,
Saturday night, July 6, when Rosenthal nnd his wife were dining there,
according to the story told by Rose
to tbe district attorney as sookesman
for the two gamblers. With Rosenthal and his wife at the time was Jack
Sullivan, the newsboy, now under arrest for alleged comnllclty in the murder. Rose himself engineered the
"Job" and brought to the restaurant
"a fleet of thugs" who were to do the
actual shooting, according to Rose.
Two rf the hired assassins were "Olb
the Blood" and "Lefty Louie," who
are wanted by the police as two of the
men who actually shot Rosenthal ten
