3 Fined $25 Each For Furnishing Liquor To Minors

An investigation of the public drunkenness of two girls, aged 13 and 14, and a boy, 15, was concluded last weekend by the sheriff’s office with the result that three youths were fined $25 each on charges of furnishing liquor to minors.

The three were Wallace Prindle 19, Jack Abbot, 19 and Ralph Wilkins, 18, the latter given a thirty-day jail term suspended for one year, before Justice of the Peace T. F. Lewis.

A fourth youth was turned over to juvenile authorities.

Deputy Sheriff Elwood Wentz reports that the case opened with the discovery of two girls and the boy on the streets of Placerville and obviously under the influence of liquor.

Wentz reports that a case of beer was stolen from a truck near El Dorado by three older men and given to the children.

The deputy sheriff also asked that the ages of the three who were prosecuted be published in answer to some charges that the men were “juveniles”.

Flurchwtz as “Reubens”; Fred Irwin as “Rip Van Winkle” received special mention …

A number of the gentlemen friends of Geo. H. Hofmeister enjoyed his hospitality on Tuesday evening at a “Smoker,” an occasion we are told, when gentlemen meet for a few hours of uninterrupted pleasure …
