Stridor Precautions Taken
to Protect Courts and
Even Headquarters.
The probability of more bombs being
planted In courts anil churches gave un
easiness to the police yesterday. Pre
cautions against such events wero
ordered by authorities In the Police De
partment. While no one would say that
any Intimation of Impending otitrnges
bad been received, It was clear from the
precautions taken that It was deemt-d
wise to be on the alert.
It Is believed that the police have In
formation in addition to the facts made
known about the snulllng out of the
bomb In .Maglstrato Campbell's court by
Patrolman Gcorgo 1.. O'Connor on
Saturday, the explosion of the bomb In
front of the Bronx County Court House
and the reported enmity of the anar
chists to Mayor Mltchel "and other
Among the significant facts that de
veloped In the course of the duy was
the locking of the north door of Police
Headquarters. Though this door Is
usually, open all day It was ordered
locked on Saturday afternoon, to remain
closed until the arrival of Police Com
missioner Woods this morning, and a
policeman was on guard there. That
door, by the way, opens under the portu
cochcro and Is directly under the ottico
of the Police Commissioner, which Is
on the second Moor. No ono would ex
plain the locking of the door except to
ay that it was done by orders of Lieut.
McAuIltTe, who lias charge of the build
ing. The suggestion that a bomb
thrower might seek to slip through tho
door and plant a bomb was laughed at.
.Strict Watrh In Court.
In the next place, strict watch was kept
en every person entering tho Tombs court
:sterday morning where Magistrate
Campbell, unrutllej by his experience of
the previous day, was sitting. Stephen
Darcy, acting captain of the attendants,
stationed himself at tho door, and quca-tlo.-.ed
every person who would enter.
Every applicant was compelled to explain
fell or her business, llefore the Tombs
court was opened for builness the main
roosi, the Judge's private chambers und
the halls were searched thoroughly for
That same strict watch will be applied
to all tho courts to-day. An order was
liiued ether Satutday or vestcrday directing-
that detects es bo assigned to every
JUiflstrato's court to watch for bulging
rockets of visitors and to matte sure that
roughly drisseJ men aio not carrjlr.g ex
floilves hidden under their coats.
Those facts suggest tnat It Is quite
likely that a most careful watch Is being
kept on various public oitlclals with a
view to glial ding them against anarchists.
Jt was recalled that Houck White, pastor
of tne C.iurch of the .Sttcl.il Revolution,
reeentl released from Jail, said at a
tr,t!r,g In Hrjant Hall :
' I am not a prophet, but I predict that

of the galliuit work of their Intrepid
commander, Cnpt. llerliert J. Haddock,
nnd they talked with petty olllcers and
sailors of the Audacious who were taken
aboard the Olympic.
The story of the musicians makes It
clear that the Audacious was but on

Hon . In fact, some of them had wagered
against luavy odds that ths ship might

exultant line from tho big battleship. It
was that the Audacious had overtaken the
mine layer, which was dying a awndlsh

The Jubilation following the nvlpt ot
this r.ews w;ui turned to consternation by
the SOS signal from tho tuiperdroid

help. Thn plight of the Audacious went
through tho Olympic swifter than a wlr

Haddock headed at full speed for the war
