Shoal Creek


United States Revenue Collector G.B. McClurkin with a posse on last Saturday,
captured two big moonshine plants in operation in Cleburne county, some seven
or eight miles north of Edwardsville, in the Shoal Creek neighborhood,
destroying both. The two plants were about a mile apart. Two operators were
surprized by the officer and undertook to flee from the place but found
themselves surrounded. Theirs was a very large, well equipped plant, the
still being of copper. There were 30 stands of beer, amounting to some 1,500
or 2,000 gallons, besides a considerable quantity of newly made whiskey, all
of which was destroyed. The posse then moved on to the next plant which was
itself at considerable proportions, the still being of copper and with its
fourteen stands of beer. The owners of this plant had made their escape,
having, it is presumed, gotten an inkling of the coming of the officer with
his posse, but the plant was left hot by its owners. A bonfire, started by
the officer, told the tale of the passing of that plant also.
