Liquor Raids Continue to Reap
One night last week while Deputy Jim Hogue was watching some coal on the siding at Flat Rock, Kerney Upchurch and Neal Rollins came along with four gallons of white "likker" and stopped to warm by the officer's fire. Mr. Hogue escorted them to Manuel Foster's Hotel at Whitley City where they are presently making their headquarters.
During the latter part of last week, deputies Hogue, Freeman, Bibb, and Anderson raided a steam outfit about seven miles from Greenwood on Beaver Creek, capturing 13 barrels of mash, 13 gallons of liquor, and Ed Hughes. Buck Gosset escaped, it is reported, shot in the leg.
