A Lair Found at Soutli Carolina's
SLICK MANIPULATORS, THESE
They Were Snugly Fixed in the
Heart of the City. Revelations
in Their Underground
Home. Bar in a Chim?
ney. The Tunnel.
By Southern Assoomtod I'rosi.
Columhia, S. C, February C.?
Blick moonshiners who have (or
yoara been makiug a study of inge?
nious methods to evade the revenue
law are not in it with thu South
Carolina dispensary law evaders.
To day a lair was unearthed right
in the heart of Carolina's capital
which was almost in tho bowels of
the earth?a lair which rivals that
of the North Caroliua moonshiners
who dived through a rivor's waters
to reach the mouth of their under?
ground distillery. It was way down
under the cellar of tho grocery store
of Platt. Hook .V Shull, and the
whole construction an underground
tunnel, particularly tho manner of
ooncealing the way of entranoo, was
the ingenuity. About $1,300 worth
of liquor was bagged, for between
300 and 400 gallons of good liquor
wore found and confiscated. The
search of the place was made by the
liqnor constables and police.
The owners of tho store refused to
a'l)w the ollicers to go into the
store, but opened np tho cellar. The
building is a vory long ono, and thu
cellar the ollicers were ushered into
ran only uhout half way, At tho
rear end was solid earlh. The of
floors knew what they were doing,
however, for they sent for shovols
aud spades and began to dig into
, the wall of earth.
I After digging for about six foet
thoir instruments struck air and
they soon got into the rest of tho
cellar. They went in and searched
all round. Ou one side, next tho
brick wall, was what appeared to bo
the solid foundation of a large chim?
ney running on up through the
building. On this their attention
centered, l'retty soon they began
to cut into the brick and iu a short
time gazed through aud by the flick?
ering light of a candle thoy could
see that the chimney wus a falso one
that iuside a ladder ran upwards and
there waa a neat little bar with all
neuessariea inside. They cut the
hole larger aud got inside. They
could see tho bottom of an ingenious
trap door in the floor abovo which
could not be detected above as it
waa oovered by shelving. But the
liquor had not been found, aud tho
real ingenuity of the hiding place
was yet to be seen.
The constables looked around the
inside walls of the chimney aud
towards tho outer walls they finally
discovered a door about four feet
high. They broke this down and
stood at the mouth ot a long, dark
tunnel, muniug back into the
"bowels of the earth." A man could
almost stand erect in the neatly
constructed tuunel. Thou the ex?
ploration of this tunnel began.
The constables went ou and on
until thoy Btruck a point where the
tunnel dividod and branched iu op?
posite directions and tho luiuor was
iu sight. There was about forty
feet of tnnneling, and the earth
taken out of it had been used to
make the false baek to the cellar. It
took the constables several hours to
get all the liquor stored iu the tun?
nel out, and there was lots of it, in
all tho constables estimate they got
nearly -100 gallons,

The Department Does Not Under?

for an explanation of Admiral
Beardloe's slow trip to Honolulu in

expected him to reach the islauds on
Saturday morning, January 26tli,
but it uow appere that ho consumed
oight days iu tho voyage, commenc?
ing Suuday morning, January '21st.
It is supposod tho ship had some
delay at sea. Wheu sho went around
to tho l'aoitio coast yuar before last
she made a record that attraoted the

on account of her exoollout speed
and long runs.
Shu left Now York about July
1st, aud aftor a stop for coal at Hio
preceded to Callao without auother
stop. She loft Callao August 2(ith
and reached Honolulu September
1Mb, steaming straight away 5,200
knots at a 12 knot speed per hour
with an averuge expenditure of coal
per day of -11.5 tons. This speed
was secured with but two of her
four boilers, aud it is not believed
that she could havo need more than
two boilers ua her roccut voyage,
as sho burned over lifty tons por
day iu making this speed, and it is
olaiuiod tnat with forced draught
aud a speed of 18 knots she could
uot burn as much as 110 tons per
day as reported.
Tue ship was last (looked aud
oleaned September 181b, aftor her
return from Honolulu, aud she was,
therefore not clean. Tho regula?
tions provide that ships must be
docked once in six mouths, as they
are supposed to be badly fouled in
that time. Tho Philadelphia, ou
her recent run, had been over,; four
months without docking aud was,
