In Trouble

The Marietta Register (Weekly), August 2, 1894

W. P. Hendershott Arrested for Selling Whisky Without a License.

W. P. Hendershott, better known as Pat Hendershott, was arrested last evening, by officers Mason and McAllister.

He was taken before Commissioner Guyton, to answer to a charge of violating the internal revenue laws, by selling liquor without a license.

He was put under a bond of $300, to appear Monday afternoon, for a preliminary hearing.  John Wenzel put up security for Hendershott, and he was released.

In Hendershott's room, on Second street, near Foundry alley, were found two kegs of blackberry wine, one-half barrel of whisky and one keg of gin.

The arrest was made on the information of a domestic, who, it is expected, will testify that Hendershott has been disposing of his stock of liquors.  The deputies say that he has been selling whisky there for some time.  The strength of the case against Hendershott will be known Monday, when the Government introduces its evidence against him.
