Federal dry agents last night at 7:30 o'clock destroyed quantities of beer, whiskey and wine and removed the furnishings of a place at 324 Cedar avenue. The officers arrested F. .S. Weismer and his son on charges of sale and possession of intoxicants. J. O. Loose, deputy prohibition administrator, later reported that Weismer admitted ownership of the place. They will be arraigned today before U. S. Commissioner Jerome I. Myers. Loos said that Weismer was in the establishment and that his son was behind the bar when the agents entered the emporium. A large number of residents in the vicinity of Cedar avenue and River street gathered around the place as the agents supervised the removal of the furniture to the government warehouse.
