CALLS POLICE CAPTAINS OTE. 'JEROME'S IRE RISES. Only £5 Suspected Poolrooms on List Belorr Uth Street. T.i > estlgatlon c • the gambling situation In this ottr br th« grand Jury at a special session yes t*rday revealed the rather remarkable fact that in the 23 Inspection District, known among sjportln»; men as "ramblers' paradise/* the po- Bos carried only twenty-five places on their list •f suspected poolrooms. Further Investigation Indicated that in every case the name registered as that of the proprietor was a fictitious name. In the case of the poolroom kept for years by The" Allen at Xo. 80 Sixth avenue the place was listed as a "suspected poolroom." and the name of the proprietor was given as Joseph Hasten. No such person wa« ever heard of at that place, so far as could be learned yesterday. Subpoenas issued on "Wednesday night by the District Attorney for the alleged proprietors of the places on the police "suspect" lists were given Comrr.iFsioner Binghain to Inspector JtcClusky for service, and by him turned over to the captains of precincts. Not one proprietor had been served by the time the prand Jury convened yesterday. District Attorney Jerome had a lively session of a few minutes with In sjpector sfi<~liwli. who passed along the wrath to the captains. Fresh subpoenas were, issued and the captains were ordered to serve them per sonally, if necessary, and to have The. proprie tors of the suspected places on hand for the srrand |VT this morning. District Attorney Jerome didn't advance much to his hunt for "the man higher up" yesterday. He and Police Commissioner 'Bin#rhara believe that the police in many cases have been "etand- Ins; in" Trith poclrooms and gambling houses. Tlas Police <fomml£s:cner and the District At tjorneT In this gambling crusade are workings together, and intend, if they cannot convict the tnea they supped on criminal charges, to convict them of neglect of duty and get them out of the Police rxrartment.

It was reported that their examination was not part of the Search for the "man hlgrher up." but "was to find out Just why. in a territory p^reraily supposed cjsonjr the ~«pr>rt!r.ir fraternity" to contain some frur hundred gambling houses and poolrooms, the police only registered twenty-five suspected jp'acep. and w"hy the proprietors of these places, even, could not b» found when subpoenas were issued. ■ The ether Has of search has not been aban doned, however. County detectives now are bunting for a retired policeman who at the lat ter part of his service was attached to the Mer cer rtreet FUititn. It is nrpposje^ that he would be able to tell the grand Jury a great many things of interest ln the prosecution Mr. Jerome 1b eoadnctlec The 2a Inspection District extends from the Batten* to 14th street, west at Broadway.

"VTe'll hfvo to see the proprietors or these es tablishments." f=ai.l the District Attorney, and on Wednesday nip lit twenty-five subpoenas were made out and r'.ven to Commissioner Blnpham, Who turned them over to Inspector lcCluskey. The crand Jury assembled at 2:13 o'clock yes terday afternoon, and twenty 'witnesses were waiting. They proved to be property owners and agents for premises listed as suspected pool rooms. They were examined. In almost every "case they raid that when warned by the police that poolrooms were being run In their places they tried to pet the tenants out. Dispossess proceedings were broug-ht. but since they had to depend on the police to prove that the lessees were breaking the law and the police seldom produced the proof, the cases would be thrown out of court. They were powerless, they paid. until the leases which their tenants held expired. These witnesses were soon disposed of, and then District Attorney Jerome wanted the pool room proprietors. Not one was waiting; not one subpoena had been returned. "Get me the. inspector." he told one of his men, "and don't take 4 no' for an answer. Bring him down here." County detectives rot busy over the,telephone, and Inspector IfcCtuskey came down from Charles street in a hurry. "When he met Dis trict Attorney Jerqme the atmosphere wa» tense for a few moments. Then he said that when he turned the subpoenas over to the cap tains he ordered them to make a report about the results not only to him, but to the District Attorney, before 2 p. m. yesterday. There was more hurried telephoning;, and gradually The captains were rounded up. and told to report before the grand jury at once. Captain O'Reilly already was there, and he was sent Snto tlie Jury room. He said, it was re ported, that be had sent three patrolmen out with the pnbpnpna<»s, but though they were sup posed to be iamiliar with the men they were seeking, they couldn't effect service In a single ca.se.

They were not pent before, the grand jury, but Inspector Me- Cluskey pave them some hot talk because the subpoenas had not been perv»d. There was a report that the Inspector. 1f these new sub po?naee were not served, might be forced to jr.ake charges of neglect of duty against his captains. Another incident of yesterday's session was provided by Dan O'Reilly, the lawyer. Among the subpopnns Issued was one for 3. Dlemel, a well known horseman, said to have been at one time owner of Africander, who now is in the real estate business. The subpoena was mad* out to compel attendance "forthwith In the forenoon- of December 6. Dlerael did not at tend as the service was effected at about - p. m. A little later a hurry call was sent out for Reilly and he. was served with a sub poena when he reached the grand Jury room. Then he was asked if he had advised his client Diemel to stay away. He said that he had not. Later he and Diemel visited the District At torney's office and straightened It all out. Diemel will appear before the grand jury to-day. G*orge W.
