Thought this clever guy might be yours.
News ­ 1 August 1898 ­ Daily Star Too Many Cans.
Anthony NOVOTNY, who keeps a saloon on Jane street, Dutch Kills, was arrested on Sunday night at 10:30 o¹clock by Detective KELLY and Officer MC GILL. NOVOTNY put up a clever game to baffle the police, but not as wily as
the police in the end. Adjoining the saloon is a butcher shop and NOVOTNY ran a pipe from his saloon into the rear of the butcher shop and served out the "golden rod" in cans to anyone who would come along. The two officers, seeing so many cans coming out of a meat market, had their suspicions aroused and determined to investigate. Detective KELLY watched his chance and slipped in with one of the customers and caught the saloon-keeper drawing beer from the tap. NOVOTNY was immediately placed under arrest by Detective KELLY, whereupon Michael LAFF tried to release the prisoner. The detective also arrested the latter for interfering with an officer in the discharge of his duty. Both men were arraigned in police court this Monday
morning and NOVOTNY was held in $1,000 bail until the 19th inst. and LAFF was placed under $500 bail to appear at the same time. I am not related & have no other info.
