A pretty good moonshine story has
trickled over the range from Grant
county in which Sheriff Cy Bingham,
a federal prohibition agent and a
native moonshiner figures.
The federal man traveled all the
way from Portland to investigate
stories of alleged unlawful opera
tions being carried on by Mr. Native
Moonshiner. Reaching Canyon City
the federal man enlisted the aid of
Sheriff Bingham to assist him in the
undertaking. Soon after darkness
had settled over the hills and can
yons the two started for the moon
shine plant, expecting to surprise the
operator in the midst of "running
off a batch." As they neared the
place and just as they approached a
bridge a man stepped out in the road
and signaled the officers to stop.
The sheriff brought his car to a stop
and the man in the road said: "All
right, Jack, this is the place," then
ran down under thp bridge and came
back with two well filled gunny
sacks. Anoher trip under the bridge
brought two more sacks and all were
safely deposited in in the car. "Junjp
in," said the sheriff, and the moon
shiner jumped in and it was not till
the sheriff turned and started to
wards Canyon that the moonshiner
discovered he had taken the wrong
The man had finished his run and
was waiting for his wholesaler to
come alter the goods and when the
sheriff drove up just simply got the
