Searching along the track of police blackmail that led to the murder of the gambler, Herman Rosenthal, the state's attorney now reports a form of social evil from which colossal graft is collected. This blackmail, he says, was obtained from about a dozen houses in this city, each of which paid from $1,500 to $2,000 a month for po lice protection to the inspectors in whose districts they were situated. District Attorney Whitman has learn ed that these houses paid a rate of tariff for protection not because of their great income but protection was an essentia! tax to their existence. These houses were expensively fur nished and decorated, and only the proprietor and a few servants lived In them. Callers were shown a list of names of girls who were called upon to come to the house when wanted. Opposite the names of these girls were their ages and the lists in the hands of th District Attorney show that the ages of these girls ranged from fifteen to eighteen years. Assistant District Attorney Smith has been investigating this form of disorderly house graft for several weeks and the results of his investi gation will produce a sensation.
