The filing of charges against the two followed the seizure an outnumbered handful of coast guardsmen from the San Luis station of two boat*, the E-30J and the Emmy; three motor jail containing liquor, and one armored with steel, and 572 cases assorted liquors. Customs officers, however, intimate other charges are likely to follow. The two men, who gave their names as Clement Roubion, and Albert Sanderfer, woodworker, pleaded not guilty yesterday afternoon before Brantly Harris, United States commissioner, but were bound over to the grand imry in the sum of $2,000 each. Both bond, with fie United States Fidelity and Guaranty Company as surety. Escape In Tourlnar Cars. According to the testimony before Commissioner Harris by · Captain William Sleinhort, officer in charge of the coast guard station, the two men were taken while- corning ashore from the boats after their companions had been frightened away In touring cars by the deceiving deceiving fusillade of pistol shots, which evidently bluffed the larger party engaged In transferring the liquor to think a bigger raiding party was on their trail. Tho const feunrdsmen, according to Captain Stclnhort, fired about 175 shots, and while their initial shots were answered by some of the' men who fled in the cars, only flvn empty shells could, b e . f o u n d , on the-beach.
