BEER MISSING AND
[Barrel of Bottles Sent to Mc-
. The ofllcers of the ' revenue cutter
McCulloch, which is lying off^Melggs
wharf, ordered a barrel of beer yes
terday, and made 'arrangements to ~<haye
it delivered on the cutter at 2'6'clbolC
The driver or the wagon whottook the
beer to tho wharf did not know; who
It was for; he only knewi that vit'was
for the McCulloch. They 1 sailors , who
were on the pier waiting to take the
officers aboard took the 'barrel of-beer
out to the Ve3sei' and-- placed" It , safely
on board. Other member«"'of the crew
spied the barrel arfd thought? that jit
belonged to some member of /-their
c»owd. The b^er disappeared, - the
empty barrel wtis thrown overboard;
so were the emptj^ bottles. The officers
came out to the; ship about 4 o'olock
and made Inquiryj for the beverage. No
one J had seen it;i yes, some one had,
the -men .-who took It out to the ship.
They put It on the deck and did not
know, what had happened to it since.
A general search was made by both
officers and rucn,' but the barrel failed
to show up./ Suddenly one of the offi
cers saw 'several -eniptyj^bottjes float*:
ing around. WUidpm i-O liini.^
The crew, was lined up 'and questioned
as to what they knew of the barrel of
beer. .None Of them, had seen it; they
hadn't had a drop^io 'drink Blnce;?they :
were on shore Uast^'yet'lt. was with dif
ficulty that some of them ' stood up
straight. > " ' \.
It was evident tq<the officers that one
Or. more of the men had. been drinking,
but they "could not- prove whether it
was their- beer or not, so they quaran
tined, every man and refused them
further shore leave until they found
out who stole thb"*bee>r. ' \u0084
• One of the officers thought that it
was a shame to punish all of the men
for the deed of one, but the crew took
their punishment with a smile.

also of the Pacific fleet, will get the
