"SCOOP" O'BRIEN ON JOB.
' Police headquarters was crowded
this morning with a miscellaneous
gathering, composed of soldiers, wom
en -in dancing - attire, and citizens' in
general. They were prisoners ...of a
raid, the result 'of a spasm of indig
nant virtue that had Nsome over Jus
tice "Scoop', O'Brien at the fag end
of the old year.
Last evening there were dances at
the Lyceum, Madison, Sailer's, Ger
mania, Arion and Sadler's halls, where
working people he)d. receptions - and
were dancing the old year out and the
new one in. . Beer was sold at some
warrants for liquor seizures' made out 1
for the purpose of raiding those
halls. The warrants were given to
Deputy Sheriff Peter Doolan. . The
result was that raids were made, fre
fights between the police and the
dancers occurred, and thXholiday time
was turned into a season" of indigna
tion and sorrow. .v.. . V i
. The flrstl raid" was made at Lyceum
hall and Sheriff Doolan was accom
panied by Special Policeman Eeenan.
At this hall the Rackoczy: Magyar
Sick Benefit society was. holding a
New Year's dance. Frank Nemefchy,
the barkeeper, was urested.
. The next raid was at Sadler's hall
on Willard streets The , Kosciusko
Guard, a Polish military organizationi
was holding sway- at this hall. The
members of the guard were attired
In military costume. When the sher
iff and Eeenan attempted t& raid the
place a turmoil ensued. ' The raiding"
posse was then augmented, -by Police
men Edgar Fisher, Garry Sanger, Pete
Hackett and : John Byrnes. : Police
man Hackett was trying to force an
entrance hen Sophia Sink, a lady in
yellow, hit him oer the head with a
beer bottle, lacerating the policeman's
The patrol vwagon with eight
men and Captain, Hunt was then call
ed to the scene. In the barroom the
soldiers y attacked the policemen with
sabres. In ten minutes the police en
tered the ' barroom, leaving scores . of
broken heads and bloody noses be
hind them. Fourteen kegs of beer
were seized and 40 dancers arrested.
"Scoop" and the doughty sheriff en
countered some fun at Germania hall,
where Olga lodg,. O. D. H. 6.,. were
having a Christmas tree party. Mrs.
Anton Deiger, president of the socie
ty, took Sheriff Doolan for an intruder
and refused tovadmit him. When .he
finally entered he was roughly han
dled. Policemen Hackett, Schauweck
er, Blansfield and Dean went ito the
sheriff's assistance,. ' Two kegs of beer
were seized and John Hummel, Julius
Schoenfleld, William ' Stokes, Edward
Heines, Julius Wolff, Anton Deiger and
Arthur Kibvey were arrested ..for e
sisting an officer. The raid broke up
tn.ChristmaS tree party and the chil
dren : went home crying. At Arion
hall two kegs of beer were seized. All L
m all Sooopusr had a very prontable
evening.", r ' - . ..

John ' F. Brenner, ' one of the at
taches of the Ingleside race track of
San Francisco,; who was on the car
held up ., Christmas night . by masked
men, (was a former resident of this
city. In the melee that followed, he'
tried to escape with - the bag of
money which was in the possession of
Cashier Clark 'and was shot by one
ofthe holdup men.
Brenner is well known in this city
where he made his home during the
winter seasons for -many years. He,
for a time, managed Gleason's pool
room at 34 Fairfield avenue. Local
sports were discussing the matter
about Hown last night. . " :

building that "Doc" Sanford, Sam

TO THE TEUTONS
Vienna, Jan. 1 Rumania has sold to
the Central Powers 50,000 carloads of
cereals, mostly wheat, Indian corn
and navy beans. The sale, unlike some
others which preceded it, has been
made at a reasonable market price,
an no snenial innpAmAnto
fered, nor will it be necessary this
time to engage in the wholesale brib-
ing of Rumanian government and rail
road officials to get the purchases out
of the country.
Rumania was obliged to sell to the
Central Powers because she cannot
sell to anybody else. The closing of
the Dardanelles has locked the gate
to other markets, and Russia, the only
other Entente power with whom Ru -
mama now has physical contact, is
not in the market for Rumania ce
reals. - So long as Serbia was still a
fact and a neighbor, Rumania was
able to ship some of her foodstuffs to
Saloniki, from where they could 'be
reached by Entente and neutral con
sumers. Now this route is closed.
with the conquest of Serbia the
Central Powers have gained a great
economic advantage. Rumania must
sell to them, if she does not want to
have her crops rot on her hands, and
what is considered just as important
here, must ''sell on terms more favora
ble" to Germany and Austria-trungary
than she has in the past.
But in addition to selling to the
two Empires, Rumania is also export
ing much food to Bulgaria,- and, even
to Turkey in Europe. Though
there Is a large supply of wheat, bar
ley and other grains in Antolia and
Syria, Constantinople has not . been
able to reach - these easily, owing to
limited railroad transport facilities.
Rumanian flour being more accessible
right now than Anatolian unmilled
grain, the city administration of Con
stantinople has just concluded a con
tract for a large quantity of flour
which Rumania is to supply, the first
deliveries being equal to about 2,000
carloads. v Much of this has already
been rushed south via the new eastern
Bulgarian through route.
In addition to having no market
for Rumanian grain and other food
stuffs, Russia has enough mineral oil
of her own, so Rumania will be ob.
liged. to sell this necessity to the Cen
tral power group of belligerents. Ne
gotiations for a more advantageous
sale basis are . said to be in progress.
, Rumania's, attitude in these -matters,
toto, has a diplomatic j back
ground. Her government intends to
remain .neutral so ' long as possible,
and 'it is declared she will join the
Central' Powers in case pressure from
Entente quarters obliges her to take
action.. Well-informed circles here
explain the situation in this manner.
The recent mining of the Rumanian
Danube . stretches seems to support
this view. The mining of these wa
ters would embarrass no other than
Meanwhile the Bucharest press has
begun to speak in plain terjns of "Ser
bia's fate and the difficulty of
Greece's position. . There is still a
large Austro-Hungarian force . on. the
Rumanian .frontier, and papers like
the ; Bucharest Moldava never weary
in pointing out that a hostile move by:
Rumania towards Austria-Hungary or
Bulgaria would make the country a

Belgrade, Jan. 1 European politics
did not greatly interest the Serbian
kings before Peter, if the contents
of the royal library can be regarded
as throwing light on the studies of the
kingdom's rulers. No books of lin
; ""l on P"cai subjects were
acqulred beore Peter's accession, but
a very respectable number were add
ed to the library in the twelve years
of his reign.
Another department of the library
i flating from his time is looked upon
I by the German and Austro-Hungarian
conauerers of the city as significant,
i zt is devoted to catalogues and works
j of general information concerning
j s0-1 ax-ma laciunes oi me worm,, in
eluding Putiloff, Creusot, Armstrong
and Krupp. Many excellent pictures
are included in this department. .
Most of the treasures and furnish
ings of the Konak (royal palace) were
removed when the royal family left
the city, . but the library was left
behind. A Vienna librarian, for the
Mast fifteen years in charge of the
Oriental languages department of the
Vienna royal library, has been en
trusted with the cataloguing of the
Serbian royal library. He told the
Associated Press representative some
interesting details about the collec
tion. , The oldest book in the library,
which Is neither of great extent nor
great worth, dates from 1580, and is
in German. Few old Serbian books
were found. The books acquired be
fore the reign of Alexander are chief
ly of the sort found in any- middle
clr 33" family's library. They are
chiefly in French. The books added
during Alexander's reign are mainly
fiction. No books of political import
ance were acquired by him.
An interesting collection; dating
from this period comprises vast num
bers of amatory poems written by
-women and children - in praise of
Queen Draga, iwho appears to have
been greatly beloved by the common
people. In the same department are
many musical compositions, chiefly
military marches, dedicated to King
Alexander. Many of these, according
to the librarian, were rather triumphs
of musical memonics than original
compositions of worth. '
A visitors' register kept , by the
Serbian royal librarian shows that the
great majority of visitors consisted of
British students of tne Balkan ques
tion. They appear to have made ex
tended use of the botoks available.
All political books have been Sent
to Vienna, where they 'will be studied
for any matters of importance to the

motor vehicle drivers: Of these, 12,000
are for pleasure cars, 2,500 for com
