Obtaining a search warrant on the next day he found two and a half quarts of moon- shine brew. I.esklutte, through his counsel, L. H. Putnam, pleaded guilty. The latter asked Magistrate Gresham to Inflict the smallest penalty under the Act as it. was not a great violation of It to have liquor exceeding the quality provided by the law.
