NO WHISKEY ALL
,Ships of All Nations ProhIbited From
Having Whiskey on Board In Amer.
lean 1vaters Under Recent Ruling.
Washington, Oct. 6.-All , vessels,
American and foreign owned, are
prohibited from 'having liquor on
board In American territorial waters,
under an interpretation of the prohi
bition amendment and the enforce
ment- act, handed down today 'by the
department of justice. Moreover, the
tranroortation or sale of intoxicants
on American craft> wherever operated,
was held to be inhibited.
American territorial waters were
construed to IncInde those not only
within the three-amile limit of con
tinental United 'States, but also-those
within -the same limit of the iPhilip
pines, the Hawaiian Islanga, Porto
Rico, the Virgin Islands and' Alaska.
The Panama Canal Zone is specifical
ly exempted by the statute itself.
The sale or transportation of li
-quor on American ships will cease
at once, or as soon as those vessels
reach th'eir home ports. The decision
will become operative on foreign ves
sels, as soon as the necessary regula
tions can be prepared and opromulgat
ed by 'the treasury department.
Court action looking to a final
determination of the application - of
American dry 'laws to foreign ships
entering American ports was fore
seen by Iboth Attorney General
Daugherty and Chairman Lasker of
the shijpping board. Mr. Daugherty
said he had already ,been., advised
that a case-was albout to .be filed whilh
would 'bring the Issue to the supre'me
Chairman 1Lasker was of the opin
ion that foreign lines would seelg an
injunction restraining the governhent
from enforcing the la;w. -He said it
was reasonat;le to sup)ose that the
courts W'iglrrantsuch an injunc
tion with a result that fordign Bhips
would continue to arrive with liquor
on .board until there was a -final deci
sion -by the highest court.
Publication of the opinion of tit
department of justicp followed i.
White House conference to which
President -Harding summoned Mr.
Daugherty, Secretaries Hughes and
Mellon and Chairman sLasker.
High admiulstration officials ex
plained there was no course for the
executive branch of the government
except to enforce the law, as inter
preted iby the legal departnient.
In a divided opinion the court con
firmed the authority of 'prohibition
agents to prevent -transferring of 11
quor cargo from one foreign ship to
another in an American cort, in the
view of the attorney general, went so
far as to hold that the Eighteenth
amendment and the Volstead act re
pealed a prior existing treaty with
Chairmart IAser predleted that en
forcement of the - law would operate
to an iqnmediate disadvantage of the
American merohant marine and would
-make neceefary enactment of the ship
An undoubted effort of the enforce
ment, Mr. Lask~er said, would be to
hamper tihe 'board in Its efforts to
build up American shipping to the
Orienlt, and South Anlierlca. .H-e ex
*pected Van Couver, B. C., to profit at
the expense ,particularly, of Seat~le and
Portland in the Oriental trade.
