|Death of An Old-Time Moonshiner.|
James Maitland, the famous Pennsylvania moonshiner, died Thursday, aged 55 years. Fountain Inn, his hotel, is located on the border line of Blair and Cambria counties, and this resort was esteemed as neutral territory to the law by prize fighters and other disturbers of the peace. Maitland defied the law officers of both counties there for many years.
