TRICKS OF RUM RUNNERS.

Use Paint That Dries Overnight to Change Colors of Autos.

FREDERICTON, N. B., Dec. 14.—Officials who maintain a watch over motor traffic and over liquor transportation in New Brunswick have uncovered some of the methods used by persons running liquor into the United States over the roads.  The traffic is said to be on an organized basis.

Information received here is to the effect that the run from St. John to New York is made on a schedule calling for a three-day trip.  Automobiles have been observed to be very different in appearance on their return from New York, and some of those engaged in the traffic have disclosed that it is the practice to apply a new color scheme to each car while it is in New York, using a paint which dries overnight.

The carrying of liquor is legal until it reaches the boundary, as it is transported under Government export license.
