|Wednesday Morning Near Hochatown-Local Officers Made Arrest|
Wednesday afternoon Officers Jess A. Stine, of Clebit, Jack Nease, of Hugo, and J. E. C. Hough, of Broken Bow, returned from a raid up in the hills near Hochatown. They captured a very large still, 1000 gallons of mash and 50 gallons of whiskey and three men, Ab Ashford and son, and Richard Allen. Allen tried to make a get-a-way, but a fusillade of shots from an automatic caused him to calmly return.
Complaint was filed before the U. W. Commissioner at Hugo, and preliminary hearing will be held later. These officers are doing a splendid work, and deserve the encouragement and co-operation of the citizens.
