Detective Crerar gave a graphic des- cription of the that took place In the. car between Win and tha three bootleggers, including the 'deceased 'the other two being .'man .named Thompson, who was driving Iho car and Mitch Alchenlque. The car, was going at a rate of speed the detective had never experienced before. In his own 'words "it was zlg-zagglng like a and all the time' what have been a mortal have been strikingly successful. It has air." He pointed out that the actual fly- ing time between Halifax and" Van- couver, a lotal distance of over Canadian territory, throughout, was only 45 hours and 20 minutes. The running time for the same journey by rail Is 132 hours and ten riiluiites, In- cluding stops ot 22 hours In chaugiug engines. Two hours of stoppage, or 15 minutes every 500 miles, would with a complete ground organization be a sufficient recommendation for air communication.
