Liquor seized under Martial law.

--For a week past the Board for the adjudication of claims for liquor seizures under martial law within the last eighteen months have been meeting daily at the office of the Gas Inspector, City Hall. The Board consists of Major E Griswold and other officers officially engaged in taking possession of the liquor, which forms the staple of the investigation. A number who held receipts for liquor seized by the Provost Marshal's officers have received certificates entitling them to payment for the same. The following rules were promulgated on Thursday for the guidance of the Board:

"Parties holding receipts for liquor seized under martial law will be paid for the same at a price to be decided upon and recommended by this Board.

Liquor for which no receipts were given, (and when there is evidence of the parties having sold the same subsequent to the proclamation of martial law,) will neither be paid for nor returned; and should the claimants persist in claiming it, it is ordered by the General commanding this department that they shall be brought before the Court Martial and tried for violating the order prohibiting is sure."
