New York, Oct. 10. Every bottle

board so that the dry agents and custom-;
men will have nothing to do but

wire and whisky ff to the army base
in Bruokiyn for storage. 'John D. Ap
pleby, zone dry chief, said the co
operation given the shipping
board officials under -the Daugherty
bone dry ruling on ocean liners made
unnecessary any such conduit as a
raid or a search."
The stenmers President Polk and

operators stand to suffer a big loss if
they are unable to sell liquor aboard

better for them to divert some ships
