Blind Pigging and Perjury

Caught a Bootlegger.

During a Maccabee ball given at Crary on the night of the 17th inst. it became evident that some one was dispensing liquor and a little investigation revealed the fact that Wm. Petri, an ex-barteuder {sp} hailing from Devils Lake, was the individual who was doing it. The Maccabee trustees, E. M. Crary and Fred Stevens, took prompt action and soon had out a warrant for Petri's arrest. Quite a quantity of liquor in bottles was found secreted on his person. He was bound over to the district court, bail being fixed at $300, which he was unable to give.
