Letter dated December 18, 1919 from Beach Police Magistrate Thor G. Plomasen to North Dakota (ND) Attorney General William Langer regarding the Ole Skrukrud Case. Plomasen gives an overview of the case, noting it is a "whiskey case" uncovered by Langer's "Flying Squadron," and that Skrukrud was arrested for offering to sell liquor. Plomasen notes that the court date has been moved several times due to the non-appearance of both parties. Plomasen argues that the defendant should either have his hearing or it should be dismissed if there is no evidence, so as to stop wasting money prolonging the case. A handwritten note at the bottom of the letter states that Mr. Skrukrud was admitted to bail of $2,000.
