StefanAsson has not followed the

This law, which is now in ef

the reckless mariner of carrying

barrels ,of potatoes in the hold
and insert whiskey bottles.
Discovery of this practice led
to an outcry from local produce
shippers who forefeaw interference
with their deliveries entailing de
lay and money losses. The Ber
niudians were concerned over the
possibility of having the liners
held up at New York by Federal
