SEATTLE, Wash.. May 11. Seventy
five thousand dollars' worth of liquor
was seized by the police late today In
the most sweeping raid made since the
.tate-wide prohibition law went Into
effect January 1. Two large "ware
houses 'and nine drugstores were
searched, but no arrests were made
and none of the liquor was destroyed.
The police obtained warrants for the
xearch of 12 places of business where
liquor was suspected to be stored, and
In the first five places searched seized
$25,000 worth of liquor.
Moyor In In Charge.
Mayor Hiram C. Gil. who personally
superintended the work of 40 police
men who made the raid, said that the
liquor would be held by the police long
enough to give the claimants an op
portunity to establish that they had
not violated the law, but expressed the
belief that little of it would be returned.
"Most of it will find its way into the
Bowers, I believe," said the Mayor.
The following places were raided by
Kyres & Seattle Drajasre Company ware
house, foot of Main street.
MrDoufal Transfer Company warehouse,
fK2 Post street.
Chartier drug store, 1214 Second avenue.
Woodcock drug; store, 604 Pike street.
Virginia drug store, 2013 First avenue.
"Washington Annex drug store, Second
avenue and Stewart street.
Smith's drug store. Second avenue and
Central drug store, 515 Pine street.
J. O. Second rharmaey. Sixth avenue
Couth and King street.
Knapell's Pharmacy, Eighth avenue and
White Pharmacy, 726 Pike street.
Inventory Not Completed.
Most of the liquor was taken from
'the Eyres & Seattle Drayage Company
warehouse, where liquor estimated in
value between $-'3,000 and $30,000 had
been stored by 15 druggists. Complete
inventory of the liquor seized had not
been taken tonight, but Mayor Gill and
Chief of Police Charles Beckingham es
timated the value of the seizures at
Most of the liquor taken .from the
Eyres & Seattle Drayage Company
warehouse belonged to the James-
street Pharmacy, on James street be
tween Second avenue and Occidental
An invoice of the goods belonging to
the James-street Pharmacy showed 4
cases of whisky, seven cases of gin, 20
barrels of Scotch containing 50 gallons
each, 40 barrels of beer in pint bottles,
2S barrels of beer in quart bottles and
one barrel of brandy.
Double Violation Cssrged.
Mayor Gill authorized the police t
make the raids on two grounds. H
charged that many drugstores had
larger amounts of liquor in, stock than
their aggregate permits taken out at th
County Auditor's office called for. He
.lso charged that only 10 druggists had
complied with the city prohibition ordi
nance requiring druggists to file state
ments with the City Controller show
ing the amount of liquor they had re
ceived. The druggists said the ordi
nance required statements on liquor
shipments from one part of the state
to another and did not apply to ship
ments received from points outside the
While the police were searching the
Kyres warehouse the work was stopped
temporarily by the arrival of a deputy
fcheriff with a temporary restraining
order preventing the police from de
stroying the liquor. "Walter Eyres,
manaser of the warehouse, maintained
that the order issued by Superior Judge
J. T. Ronald prevented the police from
continuing the search.
Mayor Defies, Radicals.
Mayor Gill, who is a lawyer, exam
ined the document, announced that it
merely was an order to appear in court
Kriday and show cause why an injunc
tion should not be issued, and ordered
the police to proceed.
In less than an hour another deputy
sheriff appeared with another order
from Judge Ronald, which Mr. Eyres
said wus an injunction, and also a
show-cause order. Again Mayor Gill
examined the paper and said that it
was not shown that a bond had Been
furnished and for that reason the order
meant nothing more than the first or
der to appear in court Friday morn'
lng and show cause.
"That is an injunction," hotly de
clared Mr. Eyres, 'and if you continue
the search in this place you stand lia
ble- to contempt ofcourt."
a "I would advise you. Chief," said
Mayor Gill, addressing Chief Becking
liam. "to proceed with your work."

The owner of the shop expressed
himself as delighted with the first re
