An extraordinary situation hay arisen, writes the Bucharest correspondent of the Peill Mrzll Gazitte at Galatz. the principal port of Rou- mania. a city of 70.000 inhabitants. The whole of the police force. with the chief at the head, have been arrested! upon charges of being in league with the criminal classes. Recently burglars entered one of the banks a.nd stole securities and money amounting to some 20,000f. The banker reported the loss to thpolice in due course. The chief of police then sent to the leader of the robbers, and. it k alleged, demanded from him half the booty. 10.000f., in accordance with the understanding existing between the police and the thieves. The leader answered that' the banker had overesti- mated his losses, and the booty was far less than he had stated. As he refused to hand over the amount the chief arrested him, and after forty- eight hours aga.in demanded the lO.OOOf. In order to escape the man paid the money, and immediately he was free went to the Public Prosecutor and told him the whole story, a.nd also what had been going on between the police and thieves in the city. The Public Prosecutor sent for the military, who arrested every single officer and member of the city police force. Thereupon the whole affair became public. Meanwhile, the shopkeepers have organised a body of private police to guard their property.
