the men arrested was described by the
government agents as “the kingpin of
the ring.”

been arrested in connection with the
sale of wood alcohol “whisky,” which
they are alleged to have shipped from

Chicopee, Mass. —United States Mar

men on feedral warrants, two charg

contained in a mixture sold as whisky.
Five more deaths had resulted from
alcoholic poisoning, four in Holyoke
and one in Chicopee, bringing the total
