Vice aquad policemen practice a system
of attempting to Influence Jurors serving
In the criminal branch of tha Municipal
Court. Room (74, City Halh and In doing

MacNellle declared from the bench to

form the special detail which Director
Porter calls tho "morals squad" followed
the complaint of Policeman Nees, of the
Biruad, that tho aqund waa discriminated
against by the court's tipstaves.
Neo'a Iro was aroused when one of the
court ofllcers ejected htm from a seat In
tho space reserved for lawyers. He strode
angrily to the bar of the court and coin

"Tho members of the vice squad are

"We havo had to take extreme pre

"They have gono so ifar as to try to

RUMANIAN POLICY NOW

LONDON, Feb. E.
The belief Is rapidly gaining ground
hero that Rumania, instead of entering
the war on the side of the Allies, will
Held to German Influences and hold aloof.
Stories coming from Bucharest to the
erfect that tho Rumanian Minister of
Finance has received J4,000,000 In gold
from Hamburg, In return for permission
to Germany to ship $20,000,000 In gold to
Constantinople, serve to Increase the un
easiness as to the Rumanian attitude.
A few weeks ago It nas said confidently
In Great Britain that Rumania would
enter the conflict, perhaps, by tho middle
of February. Dispatches to the British
newspapers from Bucharest, the Ru
manian capital, now say that the Gov
ernment of Rumania has no Intentions of
breaking Its neutrality at an early date.
The same prediction Is made In dispatches
lecelved through Independent sources.
There likewise has been less talk In LonT

BRITAIN ACCEPTS CHALLENGE
07 GERMANY'S BLOCKADE
LONDON, Fb. B.
England today accepted Germain's
challenge. The Admiralty defied tho Kai
ser and dared tho German sea lords to
put to a test their, latest threat to starve
out England by sinking all merchantmen
of belllgoront nations that approach mu
lsh ports after February 18.
Admiralty oirtclals went Into conference
early today. What they dUcussod was a
closely guarded secret. But It was re
ported on rellablo authority that orders
for a part of tho English flotilla, of dc
strbyers to detach Itself from the North
Sea fleet and report for duty In waters
nearer home will bo Issued before night
fall. Part of this destroyer fleet, It Is oxpoct
'cd, will be assigned the task of sweeping
the sens for German submarines. Others
wilt bo detailed to convoy merchantmen
after February 18, when the German Ad
miralty decree becomoa effective until
such tlmo as the Admiralty Is positive
that tho Gorman under-sea terrors no
lonser menace shipping. It Is posslblo
that a few British cruisers ot tho Royal
typo will bo assigned to convoy duty to
allay tho fears of timid ship bwners.
Admiralty officials frankly dcclnred the
latest Gorman threat a bluff. They said
It climaxed a series ot official statements
from tho German Government that indi
cated that tho Kaiser's advisers nre, be
coming despernto. Nolther Admiralty

moment that Germany could carry out Its
throat to shut oft England's food supplies.
The English nation turned Its eye to
ward America today. What tho United
States will say to the German Admiralty a
announcement that neutral ships may be
endangered by German submarines was
considered only secondary In, Importance
to the Gorman proclamation Itself.
That tho United Stntcs Till make formal
protest against t! 0 Oermnn decree upon
Its receipt at Washington Is deemed cer
tain hero. Admiralty officials professed
confidence today mat neuner America
nor any of the other etrong neutral Pow
ers would respect what hey called a

In some quarters it was suggested that
