Harry Lapole and Jerome Lewis were held under $500 bond each for the action of the Federal grand jury by U. S. Commissioner Alexander Hagner in Hagerstown last Monday, on the charge act. Both men gave bond. Lewis and Lapole were arrested several weeks ago by prohibition agents who made of violating sections of the Volstead a flying trip to Washington county. At Lewis’ farm, at Keedysville, the agents found two gallons of moonshine and 30 gallons of mash. The agents said at the time that they believed Lewis was notified of their coming. At Lapole’s farm, near Boonsboro, the agents confiscated a 250-gallon still, which they alleged was concealed in a dugout in the mountains near Boonsboro. Besides the still, much mash, etc., and illicit paraphernalia was taken. Lapole is alleged to have had things fixed up in find order for the manufacture of whiskey. A three-inch pipe, it is said, conveyed water by gravity from a mountain stream for condensing purposes, etc.
