Liquor Flood Goes In Sewer

Mixed by a deputy United States marshal an old-fashioned cocktail today rolled down Bismarck sewers to the Big Muddy.

Beer, whiskey, wine, brandy, confiscated in the Slope country in raids by prohibition officers was poured into sewers in the federal building yesterday by Deputy United States Marshal Walker, acting under an order of the federal court.

All the liquor had been poisoned in accordance with federal law before it was destroyed and had been held for some time at the federal building here.

Several hundred gallons were dumped.
