DRYAGENTTO FACE T RIAL FDR SHOOTING TWO MEN IN RAID Claims They Attacked Him Others Say They Were 50 Feet Apart. Chief of Police MoDonough of West Orange was to-day Instructed by Prosecutor Harrison to prefer charges o atrocious assault, with Intent to Mil, against Green Miller, Chief Fed eral Prohibition enforcement Agent of New Jersey, for his shooting of William Stanton of West Orange and James McFarland of Bast Orange, following a raid on Friday last on the grocery of S. L. Dowd, No. 2 SI Watch -ung Avenue, West Orange. Miller, who Is now In Washington, Is said to have expressed his willing ness to return to West Orange when ever he 1 wanted. "Two complaints, one in behalf of each victim, will be made against Mil ler, and to-morrow, it is understood. Prosecutor Harrison will lay the mat ter before the Grand Jury. There Is at present a difference of testimony in regard to the shooting. Miller stated that the two men had grappled with him and that he had shot In self-defense. Witnesses of the shooting have stated that when the shots were fired by Miller he w.-.s la Valley Road and .the two victims In I-akeslde Avenue, fifty feet away. When Dowd's store was entered on Friday afternoon about 6 o'clock Miller was accompanied by Louis L. Iusaky and Claude M. Spindle, Gov ernment gaugers who were detailed to measure some whiskey in a ware house in Newark. .When Miller de cided to go to West Orange he took the two men with him. He said that neither of them was armed, so that he was the only ono of his party who fired at Stanton and McFarland. He said that he was glad they were not armed, or they also would have shot. But. he added, they used their flats to good advantage). According to Dowd, a man came to his place about 6 o'clock Friday night and offered him a case of gin, but h? declined to buy It. A moment later Miller and the two gaugers entered, confiscated the liquor and went off with It, but did not molest in any wkj the man who had tried to sell It to Dowd. After the shooting Miller and the gaugers reported to Ffderal Prohibi tion Commissioner Haynes in New York and then all three went to Washington. Miller, it was said, would return to his home In Ken tucky for the Christmas KStldavs and report afterward In Washington ti await the action of the West Oram; authorities. Prohibition Enforcement Commis sioner Brown of New Jersey said to day: "This shooting is a regrettable affair and Miller must have shot in self defense. He is an old time rev enue agent, has been in many shoot ing affrays and must have felt that the two men were going to attack him." i joii. w. citoss. onoKEin. iiies. John W.

UNCLE SAM TO SELL $1 nnnnnnwnRTH WWW I (Will 1 1 WWW OF SEIZED LIQUORS Any One Showing He Is En titled to Some of It Can Bid for It. There will be an opportunity with in a few days for those who can prove they have a right to do so to buy some very good liquor at a reas onable price. This is no secret and no effort to givo any one a line on a bootlegger with the real goods. Uncle Sam Is tired of paying $10,000 a month storage on the forbidden fruit of Uie still and wine press. For that reason forfeiture and condemnation proceedings were instituted in the Federal Court to-day regarding the contraband seized since March 20, 1920, valued at more than. $1,000,060 and packed In the Knickerbocker Warehouse. To determine tho quality the liquor Is to bo sent to the gauger and the laboratory for analysis. What is not At to drink Is to be destroyed and the other stuff is to be sold wherever It can bo legally sold. In other words, any one with the right to buy it may garner good brands. There are Just forty pages of de scription of the liquor to be sold. A lot of tho descriptions are of goods with no pedigrees, but much of it is catalogued In a manner that brings an active co-operation of tho salivary glands as the eye wanders down the list. There are -.vinos made In France with the bouquet of Rhelms and Burgundy and some made up Jn cellars on the east side. And as to rums and cordials and brandies every country In the world is represented. It's all going to be sold, and the sale is to bo followed 'by others In all the big Prohibition enforcement cen tres in the country. Along with It, and you need no permit to buy these, will go tho containers and convey ances including four automobiles, trunks, suit cases, ladies' handbags and about everything that was guar anteed not to spring a leak. The action was begun by Sanford H. Cohen, Assistant District Attor ney In charge of the civil proceed ings in Phohlbltlon matters. It Is ex pected the hospitals and drug stores will be large purchasers under permit. $fi.90 i -'lamps jrnxrous Whnt an ideal gift!
