BOOZE RUNNERS TO DIST. COURT
Men Arrested by Officer Sondrall under $6,000 Bonds.
THIRD MEMBER OF THE GANG AND THE BOOZE HAVE DISAPPEARED
M.C. Wilks and Frank Haider, who claim their home is at Harvey, N.D., are being held in the county jail in default of $6,000 bail each. They face charges of transporting liquor and attempting to bribe an officer. They were arrested Tuesday morning at about 2 o'clock by Officer Sondrall, who noticed something strange about the machine which had refused to stop for him. He followed it over to the N.P. tracks where a freight train blocked the way and arrested the men at the point of his gun. They were taking to the police station along with the gar, and while the officer was locking the two men up, a third made away with the machine and the liquor.
When Officer Sondrall first arrested the two men, they attempted to bribe him to let them go, offering to give him $100. This was refused.
Later the machine was found, but the liquor had been removed. At the preliminary hearing held before Judge Hans C Ryen, the two men were held to the district court and the bonds fixed at $6,000 each, $5,000 on the bribery charge and $1,000 on the liquor transportation charge.
