OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly Editor's note: This is the second installment in a four-part series about Charles Vincent Baronovich. In last week's issue, we learned about how Baronovich arrived in Alaska, married the daughter of Chief Skowl of a village in Polk Inlet and started a salmon saltery in Karta Bay. He also hunted and traded fur seals out of Kodiak. We continue his story when he decided to smuggle liquor to Alaska where it was illegal.

Buildings at Baronovich's saltery were searched by the U.S. Revenue Service for smuggled liquor.
