VOLUME XXX—NUMBER 28 County Officers Destroy Well- Equipped Still Kitchen Utensils Found at Still in Griffins Township Deputies Grimes and Ballard, in a ilquor-still raid yesterday afternoon found one of the most complete and carefully planned outfits so far dis covered. The officers left here in the afternoon and went in the Griffins section, where they found the outfit just back of the old Joe Red Corey place. The still was of the steam type and had a capacity of 100 gal lons. It was one of long standing and had all the necessary equipment. There were around 1,400 gallons of beer in three big vats and two bar rls. The finished product had already been sent to market, for it wasn't there. Besides the equipment essential in the manufacture of liquor, there were cooking utensils and provisions, such as lard, bacon, and sugar. Probably when the distiller fired up his plant he stuck to hig job, not even leaving for his meals. Should the officers have reached the plant when the operators were there, they would have been at a decided dis advantage. The still was sitting right at the back of a little charing in the shape of a triangle, having its entrance in one of the angles, The still's surroundings were so thick that the operator fould escape by the time the officers got half way across the triangle. Then, for an added means of safety, a hole about four feet deep liad been dug in a small path lead ing into the thick woods at the back of the plant. The digger no doubt liad practiced the steps to the hole and had hopped over it many times, knowing that an officer unfamiliar with the plaoe would surely tumble in. The plant was destroyed and brought in iby the officers. Yesterday morning Sheriff .Roebuck and Joe Roebuck picked up a still in the Macedonia section, but it was not near so complete as tihe one captured by the two deputies, Grimes and Bal lard. The sheriff brought in the 60- gallon copper outfit and destroyed ap proximately 1,000 galjons of l>eer.

The exact nature of the business to come before the board could not be learned today, but it is""understood that there are several problems of ma- jer importance to come up for con sideration. The tax question will be up for discussion, and it is likely that a sale will be ordered to mice place within the next few days.
