Ott Ivory, a gentleman of color, who hails from near Stumptown, was
arrested at Arnoldsburg Sunday by Constable Jesse Powell and taken before
'Squire Cole Gainer, on a charge of bootlegging. The complaint was
made by a young Schreckengost, who claimed that Ivory was bold about the
selling of the booze. This is the same man who, it was claimed, vended
the ardent here at Circuit court. By the time "Mistah Iv'ry" has
danced to the music of Judge Parson's court, and toed the mark in Judge
Dayton's court, he will like many a better man before him, wish that he
had never seen any booze.
Ott Ivory, the colored bootlegger, who was committed to jail some time
last August by Justice Gainer, of Arnoldsburg, on a charge of unlawful
retailing, was indicted by the grand jury. He appeared in court and
confessed to the charge, where upon he was fined $25.00 and sentenced to
jail for sixty days.
