When the Putze place was raided last night the officers took charge of eleven cases of beer, twenty-five or thirty boxes of whiskey, eight or ten jugs of the same, a few barrels of spirituous liquors and several ten gallon kegs of wine. This was considered a fair stock of good and it is safe to say that anyone carrying a like amount has as complete a stock as is required in Lawrence.”

RUSSIA AT CENTER OF BALKAN DEBATE
May 18, 1999
Russia is building a role for itself on the rubble of the Balkans. Three months ago Russia was an afterthought in world affairs — a big one, to be sure, but an afterthought nonetheless. In the big issues of trade and finance, in the critical areas of diplomacy and strategy, in the emerging fields of high technology and telecommunications, Russia, though in the center of things geographically, was somewhere on the far fringes. But now, as the last Balkan war of the 20th century approaches its 50th day, the central player is the same nation it always is in Balkan wars. Not Serbia, the white tornado of “ethnic cleansing.” Not Kosovo, the sad land still drenched in the blood of a 14th-century conflict that Europe can neither quite remember nor quite forget. Not Macedonia, historic crossroads of ancient civilizations. Not even China, aggrieved victim of high-tech bombers handed the wrong map.
