Lumbermen Peddlng “Split”
Scott V. Knowles was before Commissioner Bradley yesterday morning for violation of the United States revenue law, and bound over in the sum of $300. Knowles comes from Willmantic, Me., a lumber village noted for its spool mill. The lumbermen peddle split along the road and thing to evade the law by leaving the bottles by the roadside, or on their loads, where their customers find them and either leave the money or settle later for the drinks. Of late the officers have made a determined effort to stop this business.
