Last Week a 1 More Thftn Correspond 1 ,41 Inft Week Last Year THE SUNDAY WORLD REAL ESTATE SECTION Is Rend in Over 600,000 Homes Revenue Cutter Ordered to Sea To Board Yacht Onward, Whose Skipper Repelled Rum Hunters t - Seneca's Instructions to Secure Two Copies of the Mani- fest Believed to Have $400,000 Worth of Liquor, on Board. The Law Department of the. Customs Service announced this vfteruoon that tho Treasury Department in Woshlngtou had ordered tho revenuo cutter Hcnecn to proceed to sea and find the British power yacht Onward, suspected rum runner, tho commander of which, Cnpt. Shears, refused to allow nn Inspector of customs to Enforcement boat Hahn, about ten op twelve miles off Long Hranch Tues- day night. According to tho Customs' officials, tho commander of the Seneca Is unde orders to go aboard tho Onward and demnnd tho ship's manifest. Tho Seneca left Tompklnsvllle about noon. Nobody In authority would say what tho commander of the Seneca was ordered to do In case Capt. Shears continues to stand on his contention that his craft Is British territory and no officer of tho United States has authority to board it on the high seas. It Is maintained r by the Treasury V Department officials that Capt. Shears was within the twelve-mil- e limit wncn he pushed a customs Inspector from the rail of his vessel, and that In so doing ho violated Section 2811 of the Custpms Laws. This section pro vides that the commander of any vessel bound for a port In tho United States shall, at any point on the sea, within \four leagues\ of the coast, allow any customs officer demanding the right to board his vessel and In spect the manifest and tako two cer tified copies of It. Commander Tawes of the Hahn and the customs inspectors with him were not sure they were within the twelve -- nillo limit when they wero bluffed off by Capt. Shears. Another point at Issue is whether or not the Onward Is bound for \a port in tho United States.\ All the .'Jrltlsh ves- sels which have been seized off this port as rum runners carried papers Indicating that they 'were bound from one British port to another. Further- more, it Is calculated that the Onward Is probably a long distance away fom the coast of the United States by this time. Early yesterday morning, off Long Branch, the Hahn, under command or Capt. Tawes, with Customs Eagan and Widcrman on board, picked up the Onward not ton miles from shoro, thoy assert. They say their searchlight show d that she was motionless, though her run ning lights wero aglow. They also say she wis loaded with about $400,-00- 0 worth of liquor. As the Hahn nenred tho Onward Capt. Shears turned his searchlight on his British flag. The Hahn drew alongside and a dory with ono of tho customs men and Thomas Mason, a seaman of the dry navy, put off to the yacht. , . Capt. Shears walked over to the rail and when Mnson grasped it to climb aboard the skipper of thn On- - \ward caught his hands and shnvr'd him off, snylng: \You'l tak your lifo in youi hanls If you at'tempt to board this vessel.\ \Well captain, we'll have to fire on yru if thatTs your nttltudc,\ ono of the Government men returned. \You can shoot me only once,\ n a1.

Sheurs's defiant reply as his hand' on his hip pocket iy way of emphasis, \but if vou fne upon us you will be firing upon tn British flag.\ Aboard the Hahn there was 'i brief conference between the cus toms ( inspectors, each of whom has naa a great deal of experience in tins work.
