NABS RUM RUNNER AT TRAIN STEP AS HE SIGNALS PALS
Aberdeen, S.D., May 26.—Roy Dixon, a brakeman on the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul railroad, who was arrested here last Friday for transporting liquor, will be given a hearing tomorrow.
Dixon stepped off the morning passenger train as it arrived from Minneapolis early Friday morning, recognized none of the local authorities, gave the signal to his partner, and deposited two suitcases on the platform.
Before his partner, however, could lay hold of the grips, Deputy State Sheriff Charles Peters of Mitchell, who had been previously "tipped off," opened the cases and "nabbed" Dixon.
The cases contained ten quarts of whiskey.
