New York, Oct. 10. Every bottle of l-quor on four American passen ger vessels in port were removed to day andT orders from the shipping board so that the dry agents and custom-; men will have nothing to do but c; erk the inventory and cart the 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 President Roosevelt were the first to go dry. Between 4.000 and ,000 bot tles of ir.toxiccnts have been taken of." the President Poik r.nd almost as large a quantity from the President RooseveK. Mr. Appleby said. The ,st.v).-s aboard the President Arthur end Susquehanna' also were removed. British Boats'-itay Transfer London. Oct. ''10. The London morning newspapers give consider ate prominence oday to the ruling of Attorney General Daugherty. in Washington prohibiting liquor on vessels within American waters, printing interviews with shipmen, reports of the general feeling in the shipping trade, details of liquor sales cbonrd liners, and speculations upon changing the ports of destination in tht- event the ruling is upheld and enforced. It is stated that a meeting or the members of the North At lantic conference will he held in Lon don this week at' which the whole question will be discussed. The Daily Telegraph quotes an of ficial of the Cunard liner in Liver pool ns saying the British steamship operators stand to suffer a big loss if they are unable to sell liquor aboard their vessels, and that it would be better for them to divert some ships to Halifax or other northern ports than to lose the profits from the sale of intoxicants.
