RAID IS STAGED LAST SATURDAY Marshal Tanner and Assistants Seize Much Good Liquor on Douglas Island ?Mike I'uaich of thl* city wan flncd 1600 and costs Wednesday afternoon ( by U. 8. Commissioner John Henion for having liquor In his possession contrary to the provisions of the Alaska Bone Dry law. Mr. Pualch had previously pleaded guilty to the charge at a hearing of the case on Tuesday afternoon. The trial wan the result of a raid , made from the U. 8. Martial's office on the place of business and dwel ling house of Mr. Puslch In Douglas Saturday afternoon. The raid was I made by Deputies N. O. Hardy and A. E. Lucy and Marshal J. M. Tan ii?r. The two deputies went to the dwelling while the marshal went to the business house. Two sacks of Kood whiskey were found by Marshal Tanner, while his deputies found two barrels of blueberry wine In the house and a number of sacks con taining about thirty rases of whis key hid under the house. Various other cordials besides whiskey were also found. Including some syrup of figs, gin and a couple of bottles of Rainier Reer. Considerable excitement was evinced by the resldepta of the city while the raid was being carried on and a number of people followed the truck load of perfectly good boose to the ferry, strung out like a funeral procession, and probably more tears were shed by the procession than are ?hed at many funerals as some of the oldtlmers saw all tho good liquor leaving the Island. Mike was taken to Juneau along with the liquor, but did not delay three long, as he was released on <2,00(1 cash ball soon after his ar rival. AH this liquor was part of what is known locally as the "lost cache," and had only been placed In Its tem porary resting place a few hours be fore the raid was made. It is sup posed to have been liquor that was brought In from Canada and all first class goods, mostly Old Crow. The whole shipment, containing many more cases, was supposed to have been lifted from a hilling place by parties unknown a week or so be fore nnd was listed on tha casualty list as "missing." The day of the raid it drifted back ? with the tide, perhaps and that part of it that was confiscated had been placed In Its presumably safe hiding place early in the morning of the fateful day.
