Through all of Friday night a cor- am
don of police maintained its vigil coI
about a house in Newton Street,
waiting for a search warrant whichl eye
would give them the right to enter ato
and seize. Saturday morning the jur
I search was made. cha
Thirty sacks of bottled Cedar

cording to the story told to the po- rec
lice by Joseph Littlefield, 33, 3225
Gravler Street, had taken the whisky
by force and violence, had escaped, fic
and now are themselves objects of wh
search and possible seizure. ate
Littlefield, who admitted, accord- aix

whose names he said he did not his
know, in Royal street between Iber- edi
ville and Canal Streets. With the I
men, Littlefield said, he aegotia"d ste

for $1275. Mr

house, Littlefield said, and knocked
at the door. To the man who an

police. Littlefield said he was pulled of
inside and a gun was shoved against
his ribs. The whisky which he had
r brought was unloaded and taken into
the house and he then was told to
° "beat it." Littlefield asserted.
Littlefield said he "guessed" the
men at the house "figured he'd keep
his mouth shut" because of the il- la
legality of the transaction, as many D
others are said to have done under inj

The two policemen and the two fed- Es

men trapped in the place. They To
would keep the place under surveil- Jol

In peering over the fence, one of aS
the federal agents noticed a pile
of sacks in a rear shed. He calcu- ho

- Such a death-like silence pervaded
the place that the agent was prompt- _
ed to enter the alley and peered
through the blinds of one of the
windows. He saw that the room was
empty. Could' the house be vacant?
Police and agents held a brief con

decided then to confiscate the
whisky. A patrol wagon from the
