WHITE MULE CAUSES TROUBLE FOR MEN
CAUGHT PEDDLING IT AT ELVINS
Marshall Mullen of Elvins and W. E. Rogers of "Red
Onion" were caught "red handed" in Elvins Saturday night, dispensing white
mule to any who had the price and the inclination to purchase. They were peddling the
stuff from a new Ford which the two men had recently purchased.
R. B. Blaylock, night marshal of Elvins, arrested the two men and
took them to Farmington, where he lodged them in jail to await trial. They were arraigned
before Justice Zollman's court in Farmington, Monday morning and plead guilty. Marshall
was fined $100 and Rogers $150, in each case, with cost.
The men mortgaged their "tin Lizzie" to obtain the
money to pay their fines.
