Behind U. S. Drive Against
L Liquor Runners.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. January 24.—'The
federal government has given added
Indication of Its Intention to wipe out
rum-running along the Atlantic
coast, which In the last two weeks
has received added impetus through
the presence of the rum armada off
the Jersey coast.
This was the Interpretation placed
•upon an order coast guard officials
said they had received from Wash
ington to regard prevention of smug
gling as one of their most Important
The order. It was stated, followed
a decision of the federal government
to use the anti-smuggling forces of
the Treasury Department virtually as!
an addition to the prohibition forces!
to destroy the rum-running trade by
making It foolhardy and unprofitable.
It was estimated that 3.000 men and
many boats would be added to the
dry forces.
It was slated by the customs of
ficers that similar orders had gone
forth to all other coast guard sta
tions on the Atlantic and gulf sea
boards and on the great lakes.
John D. Appleby, commander of
the prohibition navy, said the new
order would make the coast guard
service a great help to the prohibi
tion forces.
First indication of direct co-opera
tion of the customs and enforcement
' services was the towing into port
yesterday by the coast guard cutter
•Manhattan of the 40-foot gasoline
launch Jacques Rose, a prize of the
prohibition navy.
The Jacques Rose, alleged to be
carrying sixty cases of liquor, was
captured Saturday after a stiff fight,
during which all but one member of
the crew escaped in small skiffs. It
has been learned.
Two dispatch boats engaged In
marking dangerous wrecks in the
Tlngllsh channel have located more
than forty wrecks off the ports of
J>unkerque, Calais, Boulogne, Dieppe
end Havre.
