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.
