'"JUDGE" CALL INDICTED
IN VICE CLEAN-UP
Continued fro i Taie One
Grand Jury that he did not have sufficient
real estate to serve as security for the ball.
HURRIES TO CITY HALL.
When the Indictment was presented to
Judge McMlchael, of Quarter Sessions
Court, the news was flashed to Call via
the "ward heeler" message route. Call
- Immediately boarded a trolley car and hur
ried to City Hall, He presented himself
before Judge McMlchael, and thereby saved
himself from service from a bench warrant
which the court was about to issue.
Bail was fixed In the Bum of J1000 for
Call and the amount was furnished by
Michael Spatola, a lawyer.
Call had on a brand-new Panama hat, and
when he cama forth from Judge Mc
Michael's chambers he wore a smile, but
appeared nervous. He also perspired freely.
"I expect to be able to prove my Inno
cence without much difficulty, he said as
he rubbed his handkerchief over his fore
head. He refused to discuss the situation
CALL SWEATS AND FUMES.
A little, later, when reporters called at the
"Judge's" office at Twelfth street and Olr
rd avenue, he had lost much of the op
timism which he appeared to have when
he talked In tho City Hall corridor.
"Is It true that chips can be bought at
your club?" Call was asked.
The Btout Magistrate looked aa though
about to explode. Hi eyes bulged angrily
from their sockets, his face turned from
brlsht red to a purplish hue, and the big
veins In his neck Bwelled as If they were
going tq burst ,
'I have nothing1 to aay, nothing to say,"
, he gasped, waving hU questioners away
wlth a pudgy hand.
,, 'tls it trua that professional dealers are
-employed at- your clubf

He looked at his questioners aa If he wished
' that a look could slaughter them. Ha
., clenched bis teeth as if to bite off a savage
, retort- '

removed perspiration beads with the back

"Tne aforesaid accepted had and Insuf

The Indictment against "Judge" Call Is
the first of the kind to be presented against
a Magistrate In this city for many years.
The last Indictment of this kind was drawn
about 12 years ago against Magistrate
Harry Fletcher, now deceased. Fletcher
was accused of malfeasance in ofllce.
SLUMP IN CALL STOCK
The Indictment of Call caused something
akin to panic among political corruptlonlsts
who In the past have been given reason
to feel that the "Judge" was Immune from
warrants. Indictments, police Interference
and other uncomfortable legal processes.
"Judge" Call's stock fell rapidly when the
news of the Indictment spread among ward
heelers, p ckpockets, cadets and disorderly
women, who hae learned to look upon the
"Judge" aa the best man before whom to
It became known today that Joseph
Perrottl. who furnished the straw ball ac
cepted by Call, was at the Hotel Moscagnl
In Atlantic City.
He called up from Atlantic City this
morning and asked If the "Grand Jury dev
ils" were still working. He became excited
nnd hurriedly hung up the receiver when
told that Call had been Indicted The Au
gust Grand Jury has wanted to hear Per
rottl's. story concerning the straw ball, but
Perrottl has kept out of sight
MAYOR ASKS TESTIMONY
About the time the Indictment was pre
sented to Judge McMlchael. Mayor Smith
went to the office of Judge Rogerf The
Mayor asked the Judgo for a copy of the
testimony given before the July Grand
Jury On Saturday District Attorney Sam
uel P Rotnn notified tho Mayor that he
did not have the power to give him this
testimony He suggested that the Mayor
seek permission from Quarter Sessions
In speaking of his Interview with Judge
Rogers, the Mayor said: "Judge Rogers
told mo that It was against the law to give
out testimony before a Grand Jury I
am satisfied with his decision and will make
no further effort to ohtaln thli testimony."
The Grand Jury would have Indicted
Call last week, politician.' say. had It not
been for a police blunder which forced
from town Perrottl, the principal witness.
That blunder, which had the form of a
raid, looked so much more like collusion
than stupidity to cr!tlC3 of the police, that
the orderB went out to show Call ho was
not a favored one The quarantine on his
club followed, and no small part of tho
significance In that quarantine Is the fact
that the club is In the 20th. Dave Lane's
ward, and Joe Call Is one of Lane's most
When Magistrate Joe Call couldn't get In
hit own club yesterday he blustered this
way and that, threatened to "get" the police
men who kept him out. threatened also to
"get" the lieutenant, who, In this case, hap
pens to be "Chick" Haines.
But with nil the threats he didn't get In
the clubhouse, and that was his only reason
for coming up from Atlantic City He
wanted to show- his followers that nobody
could keep him out. Ho wanted to see
the Mayor about It, but hasn't been able to
get to him yet
The club was quarantined Instead of
being raided, becauso Police Lieutenant
Halnei felt that they could not get the
evidence In n raid He Is satisfied the club
Is hardly moro than a gambling Joint, prin
cipally draw and stud poker.
Men say that anybody can sit In tho
game simply by Joining the club, which
meant the payment of a $1 initiation fee
There were supposed to be monthly dues
of a half dollar, but theso were not often
collected from the card players. Their game
was support enough, for the house used to
draw down a 10 per cent commission
HOW THE GAME RUNS
Joe Segal is said to hoe run the gamo
for tho club Magistrate Call's son-in-law.
Bill Davison, sold the chips, and that kept
the business end of things In the family.
Professional dealers were obtained at 75
cpnts and a $1 fee for an hour nnd thoy
headed the table in the big eight-handed
They say that many of the stud games
had no pots worth less than several hun
died dollars. They weren't pikers. Drinks
were free out of the 10 per cent rake-off
Segal drew down for the house.
Business was good at this time, too, be
cause gamblers in other parts of town had
shut down following the blj vice raid of
July 15, even Moe Welnbeck'a pla'co at GIr
ard avenue and Twelfth street He Is an
other follower of David Larte.
So they are saying now Joe Call has
run down on his luck. He had It easy
there, too. The house would furnish him
with chips and he stood only to gain, never
to lose. They would even send him home
In a taxlcab when he left; and the house
Ward heelers In the Twentieth Ward were
unnerved by the blows at the Call dynasty.
They term the actions against Call "political
auacKS." xney say that some of the Vare
politicians have suspected for some time
mat tno "Judge" has been slashing Vare
candidates In favor of McNIchol. therefore
the Vare men are "out to get the Judge."
But there was plenty of evidence today
that the Call dynasty was crumbling Even
his closest friends criticized what they
termed Call's lack of Judgment. One ot
these was Isadore Rejnhelmcr. 1741 North
Eighth street. In speaking of the acceptance
of Si-100 In straw ball by Call for the
release of 18 disorderly women, Relnhelmer
"The Judge Is a good fellew, and ho Is
always ready to come through with a bone
or two for anybody In trouble. But he
ought not to go outside his own ward to
help anybody In trouble, as he did In the
case of those wornen. He should be con
tent to keep his, own people out of hot
