      Jail Terms and Fines Imposed in Still Sentences

      The business of making illegal liquor must be a bad business.

      Judge Phillip Foreman made this comment in Federal Court yesterday as 10 men were brought before him for sentencing in two cases involving illegal operation of distilleries.

      When asked if they had money to pay fines after pleading guilty, none of the 10 defendants said yes.

      Three men were jailed and three others placed on probation for conspiracy in the operation of an illegal still at Glen Gardiner, Bethlehem Township, Hunterdon County.

      Agents seized a still in a raid last October 11 in which 31,640 proof gallons of alcohol had been produced in one month. Unpaid tax on the liquor amounted to $322,222. The six are:
      . . .
      Earl J, Spearance, 33, of Glen Gardner, placed on probation for five years. Spearance was brought to court from Trenton State Prison, where he is serving time on a desertion charge.
