GLEN BEULAH OF BRITISH REQ.
ISTRY RAMMED BY AN UN
TEN MILES FROM NORFOLK
Crew It Saved By Coast Guard Cutter;
Members Are Held at
Norfolk. Va. The 50-ton sloop Glen
Beulah, of British registry, with a
cargo of liquor was sunk when she
was rammed by an unidentified steam
er 10 miles southeast ef the Cape
Charles lightship. The nine men of
the Glen Beulah's crew were, rescued
by the coast guard cutter Yaraacraw,
which was anchored about 200 yards
from the rum runner when the col
lision occurred. The sloop sank IB
minutes after the crash.
The members of the crew of the
sloop were brought to Norfolk and
turned over to federal prohibition en
forcement agents. They were com
mitted to Jail technically as ship
wrecked crew of a foreign craft, to
be held for the immlgrantlon authori
ties. Federal authorities gave orders
at the Jail that they were to be allow
ed no communication with the out
side, even with newspapers men.
Coast guard officers believe the
ship that rammed the sloop was an
other rum runner, pulling alongside
for the purpose of taking over the
sloop's cargo. Seen In silhouette in
the glare of the cutter's powerful
searchlights, the steamer was said
by coast guard officers to bear a
striking resemblance to the Istar,
flagship of the rum fleet, which dis
appeared from off the coast May 25.
Captain George Kelly of Maiml,
Fla., master of the Glen Geulah fur
nlshed the coast guard with the fol
lowing list of his crew: Martin Lu
ther Gibson, first mate, Miami: Joe
McGee, second mate, Savannah; C.
B. Tutan, supercargo. . Savannah;
.Steve Carey, chief engineer, Miami;
Elisha Culmer, second engineer. Lion
Park, Miami; Carl Digman, seaman,
Ft. Pierce, Fla.; Adolphus Hall ne
gro cook, Miami, and Harry Benson,
seaman, Miami. All except Hall are
Americans. Hall claims to be a
British subject. , , ' . ,
Not one of the crew of trie sloop
had time to dress after the crash.
They reached the Yamacraw in the
sloop's skiff, with a single oar, clad
only in their underclothes. CaDtain !
Kelly upon clambering over the cut
ter's side contended that it was a
government boat that ran his sloop
down. Coast officers denied this.

Washington-. The treasury tossed
on the international doorstep its new
regulations carrying out the supreme
court decision barring all beverage
liquors from territorial waters of the
United States after 12:01 a. m. June

cording to a treasury spokesman, and
the court's recent construction of the j
dry law will be rigidly applied.
Having failed to find any way by t
which con met with foreign laws could
be avoided, the treasury based its new
ship liquor rules on a literal reading
of the court's opinion and prepared
to let come what may. Its only hope
of alleviating a situation, which most

Father William i Lenfers, German
priest who has made several trips to
the outlaw headquarters.
The information from Father Len

prelate at Llncheng, declared that the
prisoners feet were bound and each
was labelled with his name and Iden
tification before being hurled to death.
One of the prisoners, a woman, was

ilies of the massacred captives, and
relatives were permitted to remove
the bodies, identification being facil
itated by the tags.
"One Christian Chinese who al
ready had paid $1,800 for the re
lease of his son, took delivery of the
corpse." Father Lenfers wrote, add
ing: "Many pallbearers still are
climbing the mountain.
"The only way to maintain peace
here Is to enlist the bandits and
keep them In this territory for years
as a police force, since they alen
are 'familiar with the Inaccessible
mountain fastnesses and trails. If
they are withdrawn, lesser bandits
will band together and cause a simi
lar situation In the future."
