While a reporter for The Abgtjs was
making his customary rounds a day or
two ago he noticed a well-dressed young
man standing on a platform at one of tbe
freight depots with apparently nothing to
do but watch the different transfer wae-
ons and drays unload. Seeing that the
young man spoke to several of tbe men
who bad unloaded their wagons, and
wondering what bis business was, the
scribe found upon inquiring from one of
the thus questioned that the stranger had
simply asked where the goods that he
was unloading had come from. Curious
to know how this could interest the man
referred te tbe reporter waited for an op
portunity to get into conversation with
him, that he might learn what there was
about it to interest the stranger.
The opportunity wa not long '.n pre
senting itself, and in a short time the
young m an end the reporter were en
gaged in conversation. Seeing that the
young man was examining tbe packages
of freight rather closely, the news gath
erer ventured to ask it he was a freight
inspector, to which question be smiled
significantly and replied.
"Well, not exactly. I suppose you
think its rather curious, and so it is, but
my business has nothing to do with the
railroad companies." Upon the reoorler
acknowledging that it was rather strange.
tbe young man exhibited to him a small
book in which he bud the addresses which
he had taken from packages all of which
were consigned to points in Iowa.
"You will notice," be continued, "that
all those packages are going to towns in
Iowa, and are filled with liquor from your
houses in this city, but some of them at
least will never reach tbe persons to whom
tbey are consigned," so saying be pro
duced a pad of telegraph blanks and tap
ping it with a pencil be remarked that
before seme of those packages of liquor
were on their way the city marshal of tbe
town to which they were consigned
would know of it and would meet tbem
at the depot.
"How long bas this method of keeping
tab on the bootleggers been in opera
tion?" inquired the reporter.
"Not very long," answered the young
man, "but it's tbe best one adopted."
"Are there other men out doing the
same work as yourself."
"I know of two others who are em
ployed at the same business."
"Is there much of an effort being made
to enforce the prohibitory law in Iowa at
"Yes there is, and I think more so than
at any other time. If you will take tbe
trouble to ask the outside dealers you
will find that more goods have been seiz
id in tbe state in the last 30 days than
ever before. The people of my town,
Des M .ne8, are again talking of turning
their attention to Davenport, and I tbink
will do something this time, and some
thing will drop so loud that you can hear
it clear over here." After thus relieving
himself he brushed tbe dust from his
clothes, and lighting a fresh cigar be de
parted, leaving the reporter to pioa
his weary way.
