Liquor Mis,
Florent Has Feck of Trouble
over Trunkfiil When He
' P\'- il- _> l
Loses aome om.
Alfred Florent, a Frenchman of
Northview.-is "sore"; because "somebody
has done him out . of three
Quarts of Whiskey and two bottles of
beer. He says it was perfectly good
whiskey and beer,-too: Mr.
Florent is the man who was
arrested a night or two ago at the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad station
| on a charge . of violating the Yost
prohibition law by bringing nine
| Quarts oif whiskey and seventy-two
bottles of. beer toClarksburg from an
out-of-state-'point in bis trunk. At
'a hearing "before .Magistrate G. H.
Gordon soon afterward he was ac'
Quitted-' of the charge,. no evidence
.having b.een presented tha,^ he
I brought the- liqupr here for other
than his lawful personal use.
Before leaving the court, however,
a member of the! railroad defective
force and the prosecuting attorney
told Mr. Florent he could not get
the trunk, because the railroad was
I not permitted to deliver intoxleauts
in tho county. Mr. Forent hunted
up an attorney pnd arranged to sue
the Baltimore and Ohio railroad for
not delivering the trunk and its contents,
to hint. Before proceeding
further' in the case, lie was s advised
to make a .formal-demand upon the
railroad for the articles and upon
I doing this, tlie next day, the trunk
and liquor were delivered to horn.
Then it "was that Mr. Florent de-i
veloped a large sized sore spot. Be
says that when he opened the trunk,
three bottles of whiskey un<l two b'ot.
, ties or-beer had been taken from it.'
' For a while he though ..of suing thej
^railroad anyway, but on figuring out
?. the probable cost of the suit and
J. comparing, it with the- yalne of the
i missing, liquor, he passed'it up.
' Another Interesting feature of TJTe
: case is that Mr. Florenf says he
jkiows who got the liquor.
