a new turn tonight when Commissioner

formation" to the effect that Mr. Smith
himself had opened a gambling house
known as the "Civitas club" and had told
his partner that, he would "close up :i
lot of these poker houses around here
,and make them come to us."

Hirschfield, has been obtained from
Harry A. Goldwater, Smith's alleged
partner, in an investigation conducted in

filed with Police Commissioner Enright,
charging Smith had sought protection
fot certain disorderly houses and
gambling resorts. Henry's district, em
bracing the "tenderloin," is under fire
from the district attorney's office.

Henry'« charges as a "pack of lies." said
of tie Hirschfield statement that, he was
a menber of the Civitas club until lOltî,
bu- tiat while he was a member, it was
strictly a political club. He denied all of
Goldwater' s testimony as "absolutely
ffelse," and denounced Commissioner
Hirschfield as "one of the gang who is
tr;ing to protect gambling in this city."

to many conferences. One result an

investigating certain members of the
dirtrct attorney's office, would tak* up
