Something of the magnitude of*the
F?deral prohibition officers* opera
tions in the moro densely populated
centers may bo gained from state
ments contained in a letter from R.
Q. Merrick, in charge of the raid
ing work in South Carolina and Geor
gia, with headquarters in Savannah.
Mr. Merrick, writing to homefolks in
Walhalla, Incidentally states:
" I have been raising cane since I
gok back here Tuesday morning. On
Tuesday, with my force, I destroyed
37 cases Of Ano whiskey, rum and
champagne out at J. B. Bailey's, one
of the 'Big Four' liquor dealers, the
liquor being worth more than $2,000.
On Thursday I found one of the Gold
bergs' traps at a farm twelve miles
out from town. We found three emp
ty traps, then got (Suspicious of a
small piece of freshly plowed ground,
got our sounding rods, kept digging,
and finally struck bottom. Got shov
els and cleared away two feet of
earth and found an iron door, open
ed and found an iron vault filled to
tbe brim with liquor. It took six of
us three hours to empty and break
lt. There were 300 cases, containing
3,600 quarts' of $5 per quart stuff,
showing a total value of $18,000.
This was the best trap I have ever
seen-a big iron vault six feet deep
and twelve by twelve feet square,
sunk two feet under the ground, the
land being plowed over the top. All
the bootleggers are 'cussing' and the
newspapers are full of it."
And Then tho "Ilomyheads."
Local officers in Oconee, including
the sheriff and his deputy, rural po
licemen and s o nu; special officers,
have also been at work, and during
the past two weeks report the 'fol
lowing results of their efforts:
Near West Union-Arrested Thos.
Perry,' colored, nt whose home were
found two quarts of liquor in fruit
jars, with several vessels and a
funnel in tho immediate vicinity of
the jars containing tho liquor. Uncle
Tom was bound over for later appear
ance for hearing. At the last term
of Federal Court he was Unod one
hundred dollars fora similar'offence/
tho fine hoing paid. .
Near Walhalla, on the Major Strib
l?ng place, Pete Kelley was arrested
on tho charge of selling liquor, he
having been taken In the act of mak
ing the sale about 3 o'clock in the
morning. Deputy Sullivan was lying
in the weeds near the Kelley home
when some one came to the . house
and got Kelley out. The transaction
took place in the yard, where almost
two pints were sold, Kelley stating
to the customer that he was sorry,
but did not have a full quart. The
sale was at the rato of $1.25 per pint
and he stated that he had "more in
the woods." Ho is now out on bail
amounting to $800, in tho Federal
and State courts.
Robert Redmond was arrested at
his home near Newry, where a 25
gallon still was found. There was
considerable mash and a small quan
tity of beer, which, with tho still,
was destroyed. Redmond ls still in
jail. He admitted that tho still was
his and that he had been making and
disposing of about three gallons a
week at $8.00 por gallon.
Redmond is a son of tho late Louie
R. Redmond, the noted moonshiner,
who was as square and open when
ever caught as he was fearless and
hard to catch. It will bo remembered
by all who are familiar with illicit
stilling records in Oconee 25 years
ago and moro that Louis R. Red
mond gave tho revenue officers many
a merry chase, fired many a shot at
thom, and In return was literally
shot to pieces. He had wounds all
over his body, and If -we recall the
circumstances aright, his lungs were
punctured by bullets on different
occasions eleven times. In his later
years, due to these wounds, he was
able to speak only a little above a

Denials that they had voted for
tho resolutions censuring Lincoln,
"passed in some confusion" about
tho time of adjournment ol' the vet

is-"no necessity for any temper or
ill-will or animosity to the memory
of a -President who felt that it was
his duty to enforce tho laws of tho

them." In this statement, they de
clared that they felt that they were
"expressing the sentiments of too
many prominent men now residing

remaining hero, to leave nny doubt
as to how our people generally fool
about tho matter."
Tho resolut-on for which Gens.
