From the pages of the Crescent City American, January 1927.
On Monday morning, District Attorney Geo. W. Howe and his two deputies, Shulte and Brown, swooped down upon A. W. Studarns and Luigi Braido, and confiscated 150 gallons of wine mash and 20 gallons of beer.
These men were occupying the home on the Ashley ranch, near Fort Dick, and are said to have been operating for about three months. Braido appeared Monday evening before Judge Potter and pleaded guilty as charged and fined $150.
On Tuesday evening, the dry squad, Deputy Shulte and Deputy Sheriff Plaisted, raided the home of Jack Evans, across the bridge, south of town and secured a gallon jug of whiskey for evidence. Evans was placed in jail, but he raised $150 in bail and was released.
