Point Raised in Alexandria. TIE H KHALI) BGB?AU, K. E. Kmcbt * ta. tD-ta Ktaf Stmt. Alexandria. Va., May 37.?The right of state prohibition inspectors to search the baggage of passengers on steam trains for contraband liquor without a warrant, was questioned to day in the Police Court by Attorney G. L. Boothe, when two railroad men. a conductor and a flagman, employed by the Washington-Southern Railway Company, were arraigned because they refused to permit Prohibition In spector J. C. Shellhorse to take in his possession a suit case and a basket from a train which suit case, it was afterward discovered, contained 34 pints of liquor. Justice Thompson, after hearing the I evidence presented against the rail-1 road men by Prohibition Inspector | shellhorse, acquitted them. The con ductor of the train testified that, when Shellhorse attempted to take possession of the baggage, he asked for hie warrant, and Shellhorse pro duced an old warrant, and thereupon he refused to permit him to take It, l declaring the railroad company was responsible. He turned the baggage over to the flagman and had the latter deposit it with the ticket agent at the Union Railway Station here. Mr Boothe told the court that the I railway company is responsible for I the baggage of its passengers, and | that he believed it was unconstitu I tional to search baggage without a | | warrant for such action.
