POLICE ACCUSED IN
Astoria police were indirectly
charged with appropriating 18
cases of Canadian bonded Scotch
whiskey for their own use in the
federal court this morning during
the trial of Henry Hill, fisherman, i
Hill pleaded guilty to bringing 22 j
cases of whiskey into the port at
Astoria and was fined $500, the
maximum penalty under the law
for first offense.
United States Attorney Lester W.
Humphreys told Judge Wolverton that
the, police at Astoria and Hill are now
engaged in a controversy as to the miss
ing 18 cases, as the federal government
only received four cases when the case
was turned over to them. Hill claims
the police seized 22 cases and according
to Humphreys the police claim they
surrendered every bottle taken from
Hill' resides at Hoquiam, Wash. . .In
stead of fishing for salmon on a recent
trip out to sea lie is said to have met a
Canadian fishing schooner and to have
secured 22 cases of whiskey. He ad
mitted in court bringing the whiskey to
Astoria, but denied selling it.
Humphreys has also filed libel pro
ceedings against Hill's boat, the "Faithful,"-which
is valued at $3000. Hum
phreys did not tell the court whether this
accusation and others made against the
Astoria police would be called to the at
tention of the next federal grand jury.
