St. John Jottings (Excerpt)

The authorities last Saturday raided the livery barn of Walling brothers in search of a certain blind pig that has strayed here from some other town, presumably Colfax or Spokane.  A dray load of bottles, mostly empty, was seized as evidence. Papers were served on the two Walling boys and Fred Cook, the former charges with allowing the use of their premises for illicit purposes and the latter for selling liquor without a license.  The hearing was set for Tuesday, but the cases have been continued until July 6.  Meanwhile it is a little doubtful, some think, just what Justice Case will do with the bottles and their contents, as the Fourth comes before the trial.
