U. S. Attorney Hero to Adopt
Procedure Following Success
in Schott Saloon Case
An nttempt will be made by tho
United States attorney here to get tem
porary, then permanent, Injunctions
against vlolntors of the Volstead act as
a final move In the fight to make Phil
adelphia bone-dry.
This wns tho latest development to
day In the government's cnmpnlgn ngnlnst
proamnion inw violators. The saloon
men made n new move of their own,
however, which mny be ns far-reaching
ns that of the federal attorney, If It Is
The liquor men hnvo started a test
case In order to force flic government
to'glvo back $100,000 worth of liquor
seized on senrch warrants June f!.
These two new moves In the liquor
war nre now up to the United States
court for finnl decision. Assistant
United States Attorney W. S. Achcy
got out n preliminary Injunction against
George W. Schott, of Twelfth nnd Fil
bert streets. It was charged that he
had been selling liquor Illegally.
Clnlms Right to Close Places
"Under nn injunction issued by the
Federal Courts restraining a snloon
keeper from maintaining a liuisnnce,
which Is the selling of intoxirntiug
liquors," snld Mr. Acl-cy, "we have a
right to close up the saloon premises ns
tight as possible, even to preventing the
occupant from conducting any other
kind of business, because he has violated
the law while he wasyallowcd to keep
it open. This we intend to do with
Schott's place and nil other saloons
where liquor hns been sold."
According to Achcy the Volstead net
provides that liquor dealers who are in
coutemnt of court may be fined n mini
mum of ?."00 nnd n mnximum of $1000,
or be jailed for not less thnn thirty
uujh iiur Kir iiiuru iiiuu uiiu jcur.
District Judge Dickinson issued the
Injunction ngnlnst Schott today, nnd
in doing so took occasion to flay the
violators of the law. "This net. ns part
of the laws of the United States,'1 he
said, "will be obeyed in the letter and
spirit by nil law-nblding cliizens, and
obedience will bo enforced upon nil
others. Greed for illicit gains mny
tempt tho unruly to violate its provi
sions, but they will learn the futility of
all attempts to violate the law."
Tries to Got Seized Liquor Hack
Otto Landenberger. proprietor of the
"Hole In the Wall." at Twelfth nnd
Locust streets, is trying to get his
seized liquor bnck. The argument of
I.nndcnbcrger's nttorney is thnt the gov
ernment can seize nnd hold liquor only
when tho owner is licensed of a felony.
A felony, under the law, at the least,
is a crime for which otic may be Im
prisoned for more thnn n year. The
Volstead act provides a maximum im
prisonment of a year. Therefore, say
the liquor dealers, they have not been
guilty of felony even if they have beeu
convicted of suiting liquor, nnd the gov
ernment must return the liquor seized
from them.

Tho principals are James P. Mai

that her husband, despite her loyalty to

Says Fugitive Slacker Cot Gaso

nor Leads Search
G rover Hcrgdoll Is reported to be
racing toward the Canadian border, with
Now, York state police and Depart
ment of Justice agents hot on the trail.
The slacker is snld to bo in n blue
motorcar nnd nccompnnicd by n woman
or a man In disguise.
So promising Is the New York state
clue that 'John J. O'Connor, the ngeut
who brought about Bcrgdoll's arrest for
draft dodging, hns been sent there from
Philadelphia to direct tho search.
Bcrgdoll Is said to have stopped at
ft Canastota garago lato yesterday nfter
noon for gasoline. When he left, the
proprietor compared n picture ho had
o.' Bergdoll with the strange driver and
identified him.
Major George Fletcher Chandler, su
perintendent of tho New York Stntc
Police Department, wns notified and
all tho troopers available wcre put on
the trail Immediately.
Tho officers of the Department of
Justice there also were notified and every
available agent wns sent nfter tho sup
posed fugitive. Their rnnks were aug
mented during the night by agents from
nearby cities hnd then O'Connor wns
sent to take charge,
State Troops Sent to L'tlca
Bergdoll is thought, nccordlng to the
New York Btnto report, to bo in the
Adirondack mountains somewhere be
tween Utlcn and the border. A special
train bearing state troopers left Al
bany for Utlcn at U:o(i o'clock this
morning. Canastota is thirty-two
miles west of Utica.
Troop posts nt Utica, Batavla, Og
densburg, Mnlono nnd I.owville have
placed every man possible on the trail,
and the Canadian border offlclnls have
been nsked to maintain a strict look
out for Bergdoll.
Already the state troopers and mu
nicipal police from cities and towns in
that section of the state have formed
a great cordon of guards around the
territory in which Bergdoll is reported.
While the Hues of-tho human net arc
being drawn together, other patrols will
flash back and forth through tho dls
trice in nn effort to apprehend the
slacker. Every road will be constantly
guarded until the district has been
searched thoroughly.
The proprietor, of Farr's garage in
Canastota, is the man who believes lie
recognized Bergdoll. Mr. Fnrr served
him with gasoline yesterday afternoon.
He thought he recognized tho slacker
und nftcr ho went away satisfied him
self It was Bergdoll by comparing his
impression of the motorist Vith n pic
ture of Bergdoll in the American I.e
cion magazine.
Chase Started at Once
Then the search began. Mr. Farr
reported that the suspect left ('nnn.htii
bound in the direction of Utica. Mo
torcycle patrolmen and authorities in
automobiles took up the tlmso nt once.
But the suspect was in n fn-t road
ster and the police could not catch
up with him, although they managed to
trace him to the mountains.
Unlike most of those who hnve
"seen" Bergdoll since his bciifratiouiil
escape from two army sergeants in his
mother's home at Fifty-second street
aud Wynncfield nvenue on May 111,
Fnrr-gives a really excellent descrip
tion of the slacker.
The garage proprietor, a former serv
ice man, wns especially interested in
tho cnsQ because of tho efforts of
American Legion posts to catch Berg
doll. With the supposed slacker in Cnnns
tota, Farr says, was a woman, or a
man disguised ns such. Both apparently
were nervous.
Fnrr describes tlie driver ns being

stocky build, deep chest, uneven, to-bncco-stnined
