JIMMY JAMES
EOUND GUILTY
After a hard struggle, Jimmy James,
Indian, was yesterday convicted of
giving liquor to other Indians. The
liquor according to the evidence in
case was manufactured by defendant
in defiance of tho internal revenue
laws, therefore was guilty of a double
felony.
Jimmy James is from Hoohah and
had been suspected of manufactur
ing this "hootch" or moonless "moon
shine" liquor for several months. At
least after one big carousal or drunk
orgie he and several witnesses wero
arrested.
James is only one of several Indians
known to be engaged in the unlawful
making of alcoholic liquors and tho
government special afgents are deter
mined to break up the business.
The fearful compound classod as
I "hootch" that brought Jimmy Jt.mes
j to ruin is a fermented liquor drawn
from very simple ingredients?prunes,
potatoes, flour, sugar, yeast and wa
ter.
Special Agent L. .L Harding Bays
that a large percentage of the loebri
acy and drunken debauchery among
the natives can be directly traced to
the unlawfully manufactured liquor,
made by Indians.
Place your orders for cut carna
tions, chrysanthemums and violets, at
Trudgeon's ???

mas present, and is most useful. Cups
and saucers, broad and butter plates,
