"Well, now, George,' 1 said Mr. Cortright, "before you bring Topa into court, you had better find him," The deputy said .that he would find him alright, and the attorney advised him to .start looking. And there the matter rests. Topa : will appear in court either when he gets ready or when Deputy Sheriff McCarty finds him. Atty. Cortright says that his client will be alright if he doesn't stay too long in one place. The warrant charges Topa with making and possessing the liquor which Deputies McCarty and Reek say the/ found at his house early this week. Atty. Cortright says that since the officers had no search warrant they had no right to enter the place and can be forced to take back the alleged liquir: which they confiscated. The officers say that they were invited in and did ont need a search warrant. '
