VERA CRUZ, May 13. There exists
hero a vaguo. apprehension of important
developments at the capital. This la not
traceable to any specific Information, but
staff officers and many away from head

Two Departments I
Seek Information j
of Fate of Parks;
WiQUIVfiTAV "! a 11 Uak-.I a rif .
Garrlion has directed General Funaton
at vera Cruz to ask General Maas, tha ,
Mexican federal commander, what has j
become of Samuel Parke, the United i
States private, who. while supposedly In-
sane, rode through the Mexican lines and I
has not been heard from since. A like j
inquiry has been transmitted by Secre
tary Bryan to General llucrta through
the Brazilian minister in Mexico City. It
has been reported that Parks met death
In the Mexican lines.
Mr. Garrison said today that he had
no official Information concerning Parks'
fate. He said General Funston had re
ported unverified stories repeated to him
concerning the execution of the Ameri
can private, but has made no report
baaed on official advices.
Mr. Garrison said his future course will
depend entirely on the nature of the re
plies to inquiries ndw being made joint')'
fcy the State and War departments.
"There Is nothing to be gained by get
ting excited before we know what the
facts are," the secretary added.
General Funston'a official report In tha
Parks case so far has been confined to
the assertion that the American soldier,
with two horses, disappeared through the
Mexican federal lines and has not since
been heard from.

NEW, YORK", May lS,-"Bald Jack"
Rose, the Informer, underwent the ordeal
of cross-examination today at the .trial
of Charles Becker for the murder of
Martin T. Manton, chief of Becker'
counsel! began by asking Rose why he
changed his name from Rosenzwrlg to
Rose. Rose said he had changed his name
twenty-three years ago. He denied he had
ever been In Jail during that time. Man-,
ton hurled at him a Ions list of ques
tion asked to bring out the life the wit
"hees had led. Rose calmly met each Im
plication, denying he had engaged In
petty larcenies, khat he had been asso
ciated with women of the streets, that he
had been a "steerer" for an opium den.
Rose's acquaintance with Rosenthal, nt
said, dated back twenty-five years. They
had been twice associated In business,
He denied they had quarreled when this
business connection was dissolved. It is
a contention of the defenso that Rosen
thal was the victim of a gamblers' war.
The defense introduced transcript of
yesterday's testimony and from the first
trial, showing ccrtajn descrepancics In
the- matter of meetings between Rose
and Becker. Rose admitted the dlscrcpcn
cles, but did not explain them.
Manton finally came down to the meet
ing In Harlem, which the court of ap
peals declared to be "the heart of the
conspiracy." This brought In the name
of Moe. Levy, or Cohen, who, Rose said,
drove him and Vallon up to sea Becker,
who was conducting a raid there. It
was at that meeting, according to Rose,
that Becker demanded that tho gunmen
hurry up and silence Rosenthal.,
Did Levy drive you and Vallon to that
conference," Manton asked.
"Tea,'' replied Rote.
"Do you know that Sam Schcpp.s swore
at tho laet trial It waa Levy who drove
him' 'to the conference?"
(".-'-.. J.evjvJgQTC -.Hi in.. -
"I don't know what Schepp'a said; 1
know ,Mo Levy drove me there." .
It Is understood Levy will be called
later by the prosecution.
The crush of apeotatoro At the after
noon session was terrific. Several per.
sons were swept off their feet and the
police had trouble handling the crowd.
Rose resumed the' stand and Manton
questioned hlin about the statements ho
made to Deputy Police Commissioner
Dougherty when Roso went to head
quarters and surrendered after the mur
der. In that statement Rose did not ac
cuse Becker. Tho witness admitted to
day, as he had done before, that In
peaking with Dougherty he wan not;
telling him the whole truth.
