Storekeeper and Gauger on Trial for Attempt to Defraud Government.

Prosecution Result of Recent Raids on Virginia Distilleries - Expect Sensational Developments.

Special to The Washington Herald.
Danville, Va., Nov. 13 - The entire session of the United States Court here to-day was taken up in the trial of C. J. GEORGE, a former storekeeper and gauger at Tolerís Distillery, Franklin Junction, who is charged with collusion to defraud the government. TOLER and GEORGE were arrested, following a raid by revenue officers. TOLER compromised his case. The evidence had not been concluded when court adjourned this evening.
The Federal grand jury returned nineteen indictments this afternoon for violations of the revenue laws. The indictments consist mostly of moonshiners, and for retailing without license. They were not made public. The grand jury to-morrow will take up the investigation of the frauds by bonded distillers, and sensational developments are expected.
