Public Sitting Back.
"For twenty yeara this method of

POLICE PROBING THREAT
AGAINST POLISH LEGATION
Officials of the State Department ]
yesterday afternoon sought the aid of '
the local police In the investigation j
of the letter received by Senator i
Frank L. Willis of Ohio yesterday j
from Cleveland. Ohio, containing a J
threat to bomb the Polish legation in
this city and numerous Polish con
sulates throughout .the country.
Capt. William S. Shelby was told by
a representative of the State Depart
ment that the federal government
wanted only the necessary precau
tions against possible damage to the '
legation at 3147 16tn street taken.
Capt. C. P. M. Lord of the tenth pre
cinct, in which precinct the legation
is located, visited the legation and
saw a representative of the minister.
The representative had heard nothing
of the receipt by Senator Willis of
the threatening letter, and said even
If such a letter had been sent It would
cause him no alarm.
Two policemen were detailed at the
legation throughout the night, but
this morning they reported that noth
ing unusual had occurred. It Is the
intention of Maj. Sullivan, superin
tendent of police, to retain the special
guard at the legation indefinitely.
