The myste rious person spoke In firm and even tones, urging the officer to take pre cautions to prevent the destruction of the building. The message was received at police headquartei s at 8:45 o'clock last night. The conversation was over the lines of the Home Telephone company. Lieu tenant Sebnstian made every effort to learn the Identity of the speaker and prolonged the conversation for five minutes. After flndlr-r that the man would not give his name the officer held him on the phone under the pre text of having to answer another mes sage and Instructed the police opera tor to trace the telephone number. Owing to the fact that the warning was given over an automatic telephone the police Operator was unable to trace the number, as was the person in charge at tho central office of the telephone company. Lieutenant Sebastian !s positive that the man with whom he was speaking last night is not the same person who gave a similar warning several nights ago, when two sticks of dynamite with fuses attached were found beneath a girder in the uncompleted hall of rec ords building. "There Is a plot to blow up the hall of records building with a bomb at 1 o'clock or later In the morning," said the man. "Who aro you?" answered Sebastian, "and what leads you to believe that the building will be blown up 9"' "I will not tell you who I am," was the n-ply, "but I know what I am talking about. I am absolutely posi tive that the men will attempt to carry out their plan and I want to prevent It if possible." Sebastian then requested the speaker to hold the wire for a moment, giving as an excuse that he wanted to answer the other telephone The officer then attempted to trace the telephone which the speaker was using. The conversation then was resumed and the speaker repeated his story. Ha spoke in a positive and convincing manner and mentioned that "fore warned is forearmed." While the police are inclined to re gard the matter as a hoax, the utmost precautions were taken last night to frustrate any attempt to wreck tho building. Other buildings in the course of con struction in the downtown district also were guarded closely last night, a num ber of patrolmen being detailed to as sist the double forre of private watch men that are kept on duty.
