William Dunbar Makes Guilty Plea to
Transporting Liquor Through
State Without Stamps.
Friday afternoon In the county
ccurt William Dunbar, charged with
transporting a cargo of liquor with
out proper containers of stamps re
. nu5re(1 by tne state of Nebraska,
was arraigned and made a plea of
guilty to tne charge.
The cargo carried in the coupe
driven by the defendant, comprised
49 cases of liquor and alcohol which
was valued at $74 9 according to the
bills for the liquor. This amounted
to 147 gallons, according to the esti
mate of the representatives of the
state liquor commission and on
which a tax of 80c a gallon should
have been paid.
The law provided a court might
confiscate liquor under this charge
and that the penalty enacted would
be double the amount of the tax
levied by the state, which in this
case amounted to $240.90.
The court also imposed a fine of
$300 on the defendant which with
Hie tax penalty and costs must be
In regard to the disposal of the
liquor Judge Duxbury asked of the
'.tate liquor commission represen
lative as to the general methods of
handling this as the statute is not
definite on the matter of disposal.
The representatives stated that it had
'jeen the rule that liquor so taken
could be sold after the county had
bought stamps and placed on tue
same, that it would have to be sold
to a wholesale or retail dealer and
:ot to an individual, that the county
must report the sale as also the pur
chaser must report the purchase to
the commission. This matter was(
taken under advisement by the court
, beforp. entering an ord
er as to the
final disposition of the cargo.
This morning Dunbar was released
from custody on the payment of the
cum of $540.90 for the fine and the
lax penalty levied on the liquor. The
raon was sent here from Quincy,
Illinois, for the release of the de
fendant end he was allowed to re
turn to quincy.

THY PARALLEL PARKING
The streets in the business section
of the city are being repainted for
parking spaces and in accordance
with this the street department has
their force of workers busy.
There has been a great deal of
criticism of the narrow condition of
Sixth street from Pearl to Vine and
along which highway No. 75 with
its heavy traffic is routed. With
diagonal parking, sometimes of
trucks, it made the roadway for
traffic so narrow that passage some
times was difficult and especially
when a large oil transport or bus
was passing through the traffic.
The street department will try the
experiment of parallel parking on
the west side olj Sixth street for the
two blocks to see if this will relieve
the traffic problem and the criticism
of highway officials as to the conges
tion. "JUST. SO" SEWING CLUB MEETS

the home of Eleanor Giles, on April
28th at 4 o'-elock. A song and yell
