SHERIFF QUINTON YESTERDAY
MADE RAID ON PLACE OF
STILL AND MANY GALLONS
Ur earthed in Cave at Rear of TTavis
Home Owner Arraigned in Court
and Fined $200 and Costs
From Morday's Pally.
I,a.-t evening shortly after " o'clock,
one of the most extensive raids on
the illicit licjuor traffic made in this
part of the county occurred when
Sheriff Quinton visited the residence
of James Travis, a short distance
.-outh of the ferry landing along the
Missouri river and made a haul that
totaled over 100 gallons of corn mash
in various stages of fermentation as
well as securing the still that had ev
idently been used in the completion
of the extract of corn juice.
The .-till and mash were discovered
in a large cave located in the bluff
at the rear of the house and entrance
to which was i-ecured through the
kitchen of the home. The entrance
of the cave was very cleverly con
cealed, the door having been boarded
up and only a small place left
through which a person could crawl
into the cave. In addition to the
boarded up door a cupboard was
placed attaint the door and it would
be easily pa.-v.--il by but the eagle eye
of the sheriff detected the camo
fiaiiged door and the result was the
capture of the booze as well as the
The sheriff on reaching the cave
discovered that the plant was operat
ing iti wholesale style and the sup
ply on hand would have furnished
many a sad and disagreeable feeling
the morning after if it had reached
the ultimate consumer. The still
seized was made of a large copper
iafh boiler and with a worm lead
ing to the coils where the white whis
ky was conveyed to the bottles.
There were six or seven large bar
rels standing around in the cellar
and which were discovered to con
tain corn mash in the various stages
of working and v.-hi h were from all
outward evidence rarin' to be made
into the fragrant corn juice.
The still and the barrels of mash
as well as several gallons of the fin
ished product that were found in
jug:-- in the cave were loaded in a wa
gon and brought on up to the court
house and stored in the basement of
the jail where they are still working
and making a decided strong odor.
The owner of the place. James
Travis wa- brought before County
Judge A. J. IJeeson this morning to
answer to the complaint tiled by
County Attorney Cole that charged
him with both the manufacture and
possesion of intoxicating liquor and
to which charce he was found guilty
and a line of $200 and ents assessed
against him by the court.
Whether or n t the matter will be
acted tin by the federal authorities
is not known but the large amount
on hand makes it a case in which
the federal enforcement ehe-ers
would be greatly interested.

QUARREL AT THRESH
ING GETS INTO COURT
Residents of Near Alvo Have Case
This Morning Before Judge Beeson
in Which Much Feeling- is Shown
From Monday's riariy
This morning a greattr part of the
time of Judge Jieeson was occupied
in county court in hearing a com
plaint against Robert Johnson, a res
ident of near Alvo charged with strik
ing a young man named Fred Hoff
man, one day last week.
The case was quite complicated, as
the evidence offered eemed to show
that it had originally arisen over a
dispute as to the rights of drivers of
teams to come up to the separator in
the harvest field with their load. It
was stated by one of the witnesses
that it was a rule of the threshing
outfit working there that the first
wagon there should have the choice
of sides of the separator for the day
and from this arose the dispute that
; led to th efiling of the charge against
i Mr.. Johnson. It was charged and
'several witnesses testified that Mr.
Johnson had slapped the young man.
Fred Hoffman, following a general
I mix up between Mr. Johnson and the
two Hoffman brothers arising from
the fact that it was claimed Mr.
Johnson had driven up to the wrong
side of the separator.
The court in its finding stated that
while the Question of fault for the
quarrel was badly mixed and seemed
divided fully as equally on one side
ys the other, the fact tht the de
fendant had slapped Fred Hoffman,
had been testified too and he accord
ingly placed a small fine on the de
fendant of S5 and costs.
A great deal of feeling was shown
in the court room by the one of the
interested parties against the defend
ant. Mr. Johnson, although Mr. John
son and the two Hoffman brothers
j on the advice or county Attorney
! Cole agreed to do any further discus
sion of the matter and to try and
j abide together in peace in their com
imunity. This seems the best r-dilu
tion of the dispute and one that
should be adhered to by all the par
RED SOX LOSE GAME
TO THURMAN TEAM
Number of Costly Errors in Eighth
and Ninth Inning Gives Iowa
Team the Victory by 9 to 2.
Prom Monday's Iiaily.
Yesterday afternoon the Red Sox
journeyed over to Thurman. Iowa,
to do battle with the Boosters of that
place, and for eight innings it was
some fine exhibition of the art of
base ball but in that fatal stanza the
locals were unable to field the ball
and several errors gave the victory
to Thurman by the score of II to '2.
Up to the eighth the locals were
going at top speed with everyone
fielding in machine like regularity
and Connors working the old pill so
that the Iowa batters were unable to
successfully get away with anything.
The lonesome bingle secured off of
Connors in the eighh was the only
hit registered and the score up to
the eighth was 2 to 1 in favor of
riattsmouth. During that inning six
runs were tallied and none of the
balls were hit out of the infield. The
final score was secured by Thurman
in the 9th inning.
The members of the team motored
to Thurman and were accompanied
by a number of the fans to witness
the game. The visitors at Thurman
report a large and very enthusiastic
crowd and the Sox while losing the
ramp received a verv nice niece of
money for their efforts in their share
of the gate receipts.
The Thurman team has been
strengthened since their appearance
here and a number of the important
places on the team has been filled
with new and faster players.
