Morris, Louis
Morris, a trader, was discovered by colonial authorities with approximately 200 gallons of illegal alcohol hidden in a secret cellar in his house in Kitimat. The hidden stash of alcohol was said to have belonged to a man named Barrowitz, the Master of the schooner Langley, the ship which brought Morris to Kitimat. Commander Pike of the HMS Devastation discovered the hidden store when he ordered the house to be searched by Singleton and Daw, who found the entrance to the cellar by pulling back planking on the wall of one side of the kitchen.1
