Iron County Record I
: ' y' "
B Elaborate Still Located Near Cali-
ente Has Supplied Moonshine
H To Wide Area.
H One Arrest Made, But Defendant
Discharged by Biased Justice of
m Peace, Who May Have Been
B-; "Under Obligations" Offenders.
W For some time officers of the law
Kg and other observing citizens through
jg out this section of Utah have been
mP, aware of the fact that something
B stronger and "rnngknnkcrour" than
R& ' home brew has been available to the
Wpl wets, and the popular cognomen for
2m this diffusion has been "white mule."
K There have been stories to the effect
K that the moonshine whiskey was dls
B tilled in the vicinity of Indian Peaks,
Wf; and a man by the name of Johnson,
JK who frequents Modcna, has been frec
Mf ly associated with the lawless onter
Mr prise. Other reports have been to the
W cfTcct that the "stuff" came from Cnl
u. iente, and yet other rumors say it is
' manufactured in Millard county. It
B has also been stated that large quan
R titics of the liquor were shipped to
p Salt Lake, and that many of the jags
g$L so noticeable about the Cullcn and
3$ "Wilson "soft drink" bars were derived
itv from this source. There havo been
Mjk rumors galore, and people have won
Hpr ( dered why the United States Federal
flfc ' government should allow such a con
bib dition to maintain, it being whispered
'jK that nil the officers of the law were
jgiw afraid to beard the desperate men.
lfr But the first authentic report comes
h from Pioche, the following exhaustive
Steu... ?.torv .bcing token. from the .Pjpcho,
r Record of July 30th. The Pioche pa-
per is careful to lay the blame, as far
r as possible on Utah men, which it de-
j scribes as the "western home of the
moonshiner." It is a rather strango
' coincidence, however, that if Utah is
' such n paradise for moonshiners that
they should locate in Ncvnda to ply
' their lawless trade. We admire, how
ever, the full and frank news report
of the Pioche Record of this case, but
j. ., from the fact that several of its lo-
cal business men have withdrawn
' their support on account of it it would
seem the shafts were hitting close
to home It docs not charge that any
residents of Utah havo stopped their
papers on account of tho exposure.
Well, hero is tho Record's news rc-
port of the arrest and trial:
Blames Utah For It.
"Thnt illicit liquor has been manu
factured in and near Calicntc by a
quartet of Utah offenders who came
to Lincoln county for thnt purpose
has been proven beyond a shndow of
doubt and the fact that there has been
a temporary miscarriage of justice is
no fault of the peace officers of this
county. In justice to Caliente and
Lincoln county it may be said that
none of those implicaed in the opera-
J tion and transportation of this illegal
plant are Nevada residents, all having
come here from Utah, the western
home of the moonshiner, less than six
months ago.
There is an undercurrent of opinion
prevailing throughout the country that
the aid of the federal government will
be requested in order to deal with this
and other flagrant abuses of the na-
I tionnl liquor laws.
1 "The charge against W. Kaulbaugh
I of Caliente of having an illicit still in
his possession was dismissed last
j Tuesday by Justice of tho Peace
a Frank Palmer on tho ground of insuf-
Ej ficicnt evidence to convict in the
If higher court. Attorney Luke J. Mc-
j Nnmee for the defense and Prosecut-
M ing Attorney A. L. Scott went down
H from Pioche to attend the trial.
B "Mr. Scott first called Sheriff Wlll-
iam Culverwell and Deputies J. L.
II Denton' and L. C. Denton, who made
t --Vpk the arrest, to the witness stand, all of
whom related the same story with ref
erence to the search at Klondike Well,
and each corroborated the other's
story in regard to the capture of the
still in Kaulbaugh's residence in Cal
iente. According to officials, the still
was practically complete, there being
offered in evidenco one five-gallon
I copper kettle and worm, one brass
II tube connection, one mbber hose con-
H nection one specific gravity testing

W the alcohol content and three vessels

R. L. Jones, focal architect, return
ed the first of the week from a
thousand-mile vacation trip over the
Btatc of Utah, covering the ground ns
far north as Logan and south to
Kanab. He was accompanied by his
wife and children nnd by Miss Har-'
rlct Bunting of Kannb.
Being especially interested in that
line Mr. Jones investigated each city
and town on the way to find what
each had done toward caring for tour
ist travel. He states that ho found
many places with some sort of camp
ground for tourists, and many others
without any such provisions. No
where in his travels did he find a camp
ground to compare with that of Ce
dar City. Also, the finishing of the'
new hotel in Cedar will put the city in
a class by itself in regnrd to accomo
dations for travellers.
On the trip, tho party visited Fish,
Lake and Bryco's Canyon. Fish Lake
was found to be a very desirable sum
mer retreat, but the forty-mile road
through the sagebrush from tho main
highway to tho lake is utterly devoid
of scenic interest. Bryco's Canyon n
rouscd their enthusiasm when seen at
sunrise and sunset, the erosion forma

Truly the Master spoke knowingly
when he said that a prophet is not
without honor save in his own coun- I
try. Furthermore, the ti-uth does not!
apply to prophets alone, but to al
most every phase of human activity.
If it should happen in nny com
munity that two speakers, one from
home and one from abroad, were to
appear before tho public at the- same
time, but at different places, there
can be little question but that the for
eigner would huve by fnr the larger
audience. In social activities the con-i
dition is much the same. Altogether
it is usual to seek the new nc-,
quaintance rather than to the old one,
who has been tried and found worthy. ,
No one will attempt to deny that there
is something about newness and dis-j
tancc that attract us and often lead
us astray. I
And in this connection we might
very properly ask the people of Utah
what they are going to do this su!m:- j
mer in the matter of travel. Will they
continue to go to the Yellowstone, to ,
Yosemite and to the Alps, or will
they spend their vacations in their own
state, where the wonders of nature are
even more sublimed We must not
disparage the beauties of foreign
scenery, but until the Utahn has seen '
Bryce, Zion, San Rafael, Grand Eddy,
Cedar Breaks, and the natural bridges
he will find great difficulty In justify
ing himself In going elsewhere.

First Settlers Insist That This Is the
Only Correct Title for Cedar
Mountain Lake.
I Since there is recurring confusion
I caused by the current use of two)
names, "Navajo Lake" and "Duck
Lake" for the same body of water on
Cedar Mountain, the Record has made
some inquiries in regard to which is
! the correct name. The use of tho
j correct title is especially essential
now that that region is being mado
' accessible to the beauty-seekers of
1 the world.
Bro. David Bulloch, who was among
the first settlers of the community,
says the first name was Navajo Lake,
i He was among the first to visit the
lake,. William Berry of Kannrra be
jing the only man to get there nhcad
'of him. August Mackelprang con
firms Bro. Bulloch's assertion as to
tho name being properly, "Navajo
Lake," and gives tho same reason for
its coming by that name. This was
Uhc faetrtlmt'it lnron'thcr trailof 'the
Navnjo raiders who made it a practice
, to camp there on their way to this
i country to stcnl horses and mule3.
Neither could confirm the story of a
1 fight .between the whites and Nnvajos
on the shores of tho lnke, but were of
!the opinion that one had taken place
in the early days. There were so
many raids that they were hard to
keep track of. Bro. Mackelprang re
membered one winter when seven or
eight different raids were made. Four
men, David Bulloch, August Mackel
prang, Martin Chatterly and Samuel
Wood, followed the first of these,
bands until they were near enough
to loam that it was altogether too
powerful a detachment for them to
attack. loiter that same winter one
of the Nebeker brothers from Rich
County was camped in Cedar witn a
band of high class mules and blooded
mares, when the Navajos came in
that night nnd stole tho whole Nobo
kcr band. This time a 'strong party
of whites followed the reds up a ridge
between here nnd Enoch over into the
Panguitch Lake country, where near
Panguitch they overtook the thieves,
gave battle and enptured the mules
and horses. Both Bulloch and Mackel
prang were in this fight.
Not only is the name "Navajo
Lake" preferable from priority, but it
is more distinctive, more picturesque,
bettor suited to the wild beauty of the
lake, and more easily advertised. It
is associated in the minds of tho old
settlers with some of their most .stir
ring experiences, and due respect to
them and their pioneer achievements
should prompt their children to accept
nnd perpetuate the name "Navajo
Even euphony gives "Navajo" pref
erence. When Will Shakcspear said
"What's in a name?" he hadn't been
the wonders California and Texr.s
have performed in choosing musical
Spanish nnmes nnd advertising them.
In these days there are thousands of
dollars in attractive, appropriate
names. There is potential value for
Cedar in the nnme, "Navajo Lake."
Attorney E. H. Ryan snatched his
mail from the post office yesterday,
afternoon as he was about to board
the passenger bus to Lund on his way
to Delta to attend a session of district
court. When he reached Lund nnd
had time to look it over he found a
letter which made his attendance un
necessary at this term, nnd he cnught
a late auto back Inst night.
Mrs. Christina Chatterley went to
Lehi Thursday to spend two or threo

Thorley says the roads are in an aw

Cedar Lads Hold Them to Zero
Until Sixth, When Hoodoo
Gets In Its Work.
The Cedar City Baseball team ex
perienced their second defeat of the
season at Milford last Sunday, when
tho Milford boys won with a score of
four to three. The score is cvi
idence that it was a hard fought bat
tle, and we think it no great disgraco
to suffer defeat onco in a while, with'
a score of this kind.
The boys left Cedar City early and
drove 90 miles to Milford by nutomo-
bile before the gnme, which would not
bo likely to improve their physical
condition for the gnme.
Once more it was tho fatnl sixth
i innings which decided the game in
Milford's favor; in fact it was during
this innings thnt Milford ran up its
entire score of four tallies. The other
eight innings were goose eggs.
This was the seventh game this sea
son .fortho local 'players, and ,-hqy
despite a number of handicaps, and
it illustrates the uncertainty of the,
. pnstime when it is remembered thnt,
this was the third game with Milford,
I in both of the previous games Cedar
coming out victorious'.

Engineer Gownn estimates tho
dninngo dono tho now rond up Cedar
Canyon by the Monday downpour at
threo thousand dollars. D. II. Chris
tenscn, President of tho Chrtetciwon
Construction Company, with ethers
had just arrived nt tho road camp
shortly before tho flood arrived, nnd
the cutting out of tho rond left his
party including four nutomobiles
stranded in tho canyon. County Rond
Supervisor D. Claude Uric took up a
supply of TNT Thursday to widen
the nnrrow plnccs in tho rond to allow
nutos and wagons to go through. Tho
first work of tho rond crew was to re
pair the road to tho coal mine in or
der to provide fuel for the big stentrv
shovel. Although tho rood is built
under contract by tho construction
company and has not been received by
the state, the road officials nre busy
helping open tho road to traffic.
The flood also cut out part of the
bridge east of the city and cut n chan
nel around the irrigation dnm north
of the city limits.
K. W. Collctt, forcmnn at the
Christenscn road camp up Cedar can
yon nnd Addison Tollcstrup woro
treated to n rather exciting exper
ience in the monster flood that camo
down tho canyon Mondny afternoon.
Where the flood was cutting tho new
rondway the two tried to throw n rope
on a culvert that had been undermined
nnd was duo to bo carried away. As
the second throw wns mnde, tho sec
tion of the new rondway on which
they stood caved off irito tho creek,
taking the two men. Mr. Collctt man
aged to scramble back fftr enough to
keep out of tho current, though he
wns pinned down by boulders, but
Tollcstrup was carried down three
hundred feet nnd thrown up on a big
boulder on the opposite side of thp
flood. The mauling ho gotamong ,thp(
ho cannot tell just how ho got out cC
I the current. However, though bruised
nnd sore the two men nre back on the
'job nt the camp,
Every Man To His Trade.
The wisdom of the old adage, "Ev
ery man to his trade," is again proven
by an incident which occurred this
morning when Mnyor Arch Swapp
undertook o drive a jitney to his
farm north of town, instend of the big
Cadillac that he is accustomed to. Tho
mayor has learned how to start and,
.stop the flivver, nnd turn corners, if
given plenty of time, but it rcquifrcs
concentration of mind nnd mentnl
prepwntion. So, when turning off
i First North street onto Main at a
I fairly good rate of speed, he suddenly
wns confronted by a car travelling
.south on Main, at an equally sharp
pace, the official lost his poise. He
lifted the toe of his right foot from
I the accelerator (?) but it failed to
check the momentum of his car, nnd
before he could remember the hand
(feed or the strange pedals and lever3
I he was within a foot or two of the,
j other car, going head on for amid
ships. A desperate Bharp turn to the
I left avoided a collision by not more
than an inch, the mayor estimates, but
upset a barrel of swill on the back f
I the jit, which was on its way to tine
field. A pen of hungry pigs, nnd n bad
smelling jitney (not caused by gaso
line or oil) were the only' damages,
but tho mnyor hns resolved to leave
the operation of the jitney to the
"kids" hereafter.
