the interior department, to uncover
the cleverest scheme in that city for
the shipment of whiskey that has ever
been known in the territory.
Loaded in trunks whiskey was daily
shipped into the territory from Sher-i " golnR |n pprson t0 ohlo to take
man, Texas, The liquor was destroyed | v T„ft fnrces or with-
1 ut the parties shipping it or the par-|
ties who were to receive It could not
be located. Johnson went to Sher-
man and in conjunction with the sher-
iff arrested James Dooley, a negro
hiwyer, who was at the head of a gang
shipping the whiskey.
SherlfT Rich appointed Johnson
deputy sheriff for one night. Johnson
by passing several watches and peep
holes in the Frisco hotel succeeded
in getting to the bar. Behind it stood
a person wearing a gauze mask, a
hood and a Mother Hubbard dress.
"I snaked him out of there," said
Johnson today. "When I reached the
street the police assisted in unmask-
ing the bartender, who turned out to
he James Dooley, a negro lawyer, and
a member of the Grayson county bar.
Dooley was turned over to the Texas
authorities and will be prosecuted un-
der the Texas local option law. Since
the arrest of Dooley no more whiskey
has been shipped In trunks from
charge of the Taft forces or with-
drawing from the contest.
The advisers of President Roose-
velt recognize that if Senator Dick
can hold the old McKlnley-Hanna
state organization In line for Foraker
that Secretary Taft's lines have fall-
en in troublesome places
