Last Friday Deputy SlieriiT Gus
Sullivan, Kural Policemen \V. L. Lit
tleton and O. A. nunnie.it raided 1
in the Rocky Fork section of Oconee !
and managed to make the raid well
worth while. Tlyy estimate that
tho beer, mash and other "makings"
prevented the turning out of. at a
conservative figure, two hundred gal
lons of corn liquor.
lt was Friday of last week when
the oftlcers entered the Rocky Pork"
soot ion and "resinned business," so
lo speak. On property of Riley Moore
they located a 30-gallon copper still
with complete outfit, and this was
totally destroyed, including 2(1 gal
lons of singlings and (lilt) gallons of
beer. Isaac Pointer and Riley Moore
were arrested at this plant, brought
into .town and given a hearing, as a
result of which each was bound over
on a bond of $800-$:50<) in tho
State Court and $500 for tho Fed
oral Court.
Going about two miles further the
officers ran across another stilling
plant, this one bing "cold," destroy
ing a GO-ga ll on copper outlll and
seven large fermenters of beer. No
one was about this plant and no ar
rests have been made.
Tho depression in price on the
corn liquor market seems not to have
reached this section as yet. At least,
there seems to have been no cessa
tion or let-up in the illegal manufac
ture of the stuff hereabouts. We note
thal in Virginia a drop in the price,
of liquor of tho moonshine type ls
given as from $15 to $2 a gallon
and consequently there has been, lt
is said, a virtual abandonment of the
moonshine business.
