Three Accused of Providing Whisky In Nursing Bottles.
BOSTON, Dec. 27.—Three officers of the New England Road Builders' Association were charged formally today with having provided whisky in nursing bottles at the annual dinner of the association at the Hotel Somerset recently. United States Commissioner Hayes, who heard evidence immediately after their arraignment, reserved his decision for a week, and the men were freed on their personal recognizance.
Frederick Hoitt of Swampscot, Secretary; Joseph A. Tomasella, Treasurer, and Walter H. Lee, Assistant Secretary, the latter two of this city, were the men arrested. Their counsel moved that the cases be dismissed for lack of evidence, but the motion was dismissed by the Commissioner.
