A New Hampshire auction house is adding a signed deposition by gangster Al Capone, a pistol and a love song about his wife to its ``American Gangsters, Outlaws and Lawman'' auction planned next month. The Jan. 24, 1925, deposition is part of a 50-page archive of police interviews, testimony and notes in the attempted murder of Capone's mentor, John Torrio. Bobby Livingston of RR Auction in Amherst estimated the file could bring in $100,000. When Chicago police asked if he'd tell them if he knew who shot Torrio, Capone said: ``No, I value my life too much to tell if I did know.'' The Sept. 30 auction in Nashua also features guns retrieved post-mortem from outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow and a John Dillinger death mask.
