100 Years Ago

Two large consignments of booze were taken through Boundary Co. on Sunday and were captured in Bonner Co. The booze was taken from Troy, Montana in large touring cars. Sheriff Dunning had been informed of shipments and had put up a barricade on the Shavelear Hill. The booze car went through Main Street at 4 a.m. and up the hill road at a speed of about 35 mph and Sheriff Dunningís barricades were scattered in several different directions when the car struck it. Dunning fired at the car but the driver kept right on going. The two occupants of the car unloaded and cached their booze before going to Sandpoint where they were later captured.
