EGG CRATES
HELD BOOZE
Booze is again flowing into Ha
gerstown in large quantities, says a
dispatch from that city. Some time
ago, a certain Individual from a
northern state seemed to have a
monopoly upon the booze traffic to
Hagerstown, but he seems to have
relinquished this and now it is re
ported to be a man from a southern
state Who is the "booze prince” for
that locality.
From what can he learned this
man has sent there last week a load
of 1200 quarts of liquor, in quart
bottles. This shipment came in egg
crates, it is said, aud was hauled
through the streets as such, and at
traded no attention.
It is also reported that this same
inan has another shipment of “crat
ed eggs" arriving in Hagerstown
this week. The shipment Is said not
to be as large as the shipment o’,
last week. From what can be learn
ed the shipment comes from Vlr
ginia.
