"TAMA COUNTY CHAMP BABY BEEF BRINGS HIGH PRICE
There is great rejoicing over what the Tama county fair champion baby
beef did on the market on Chicago. The champion was a Hereford owned
by Lester CASLAVKA of Traer.
In Chicago it sold at $17.50 per 100 lbs., and it weighed 1,050
pounds. It was the second top baby beef in Chicago. The first was
from Cass county and brought $17.50.
County Agent MILLS is pleased with the showing. The ten calves sent
from the fair to Chicago averaged $15.11 per hundred and their
average weight was 924."
"ONE PAYS FINE AND TWO GIVEN JAIL SENTENCES
EIRP pays $500--ABERNATHY and O'DONNELL Jailed
James EIRP of Belle Plaine, who was arrested by Marshall ASMUSSEN at
Chelsea Labor day, pleaded guilty before Judge WILLETT in district
court Monday to a charge of illegal transportation of liquor.
EIRP at first was charged with bootlegging, but insisted he never
sold liquor and never has been drunk. Friends interceded for him.
Bootlegging demands a jail sentence. County Attorney WILLETT last
week stated that he would investigate EIRP, and if the reputation was
found as good as claimed by friends, another charge, one not carrying
a jail sentence, would be made. When EIRP was arraigned the charge
was changed from bootlegging to illegal transportation.
EIRP was fined $500 and costs, his bill amounting to $542.25, which he paid.
EIRP stopped in Chelsea Labor day, and Marshall ASMUSSEN found liquor
in his car.
In case of liquor transportation, the law confiscates the auto. EIRP
had a new Chrysler coach when arrested, and County Attorney WILLETT
filed information against the Chrysler car. EIRP put up a cash bond
of $800 and had the use of the coach. This week he decided he wanted
his $800, and so surrendered the car to the sheriff. The case
regarding the car will be settled in district court later, and it
will remain with Sheriff HARRISON, unless EIRP puts up a bond again
if he wants to use his car.
Two Get Jail Terms
G.P. ABERNATHY of Gladbrook pleased guilty to a charge of
bootlegging, this being his second offense. He was fined $500 and
costs and also was sentenced to six months in the county jail at hard
labor, his term beginning Sept. 5.
John O'DONNELL, also of Gladbrook, pleaded guilty to a charge of
bootlegging and was fined $300 and sentenced for three months in the
Both are now in the county bastile, the place being an old home for
ABERNATHY, as he had been released a few weeks before being arrested.
ABERNATHY and O'DONNELL were arrested last week by Marshal SCHODT of
Gladbrook while they were carrying a jar of booze to a shack."
