Believe that is the time that a moonshine still blew up there. I'll check to verify.

William Castle, of Carter county, and a deputy U.S. Marshal returned from a moonshine raid in Rowan county, near Sugar Loaf mountain, where there was said to be a volcano in active operation, frightening the people of that section, and bringing with them Presley Crow and John Hildebrand, alleged moonshiners. The men are said to have been operating on the mountain. If this be true, it proves that the volcano was in reality a moonshine still, and it was a good one. Salyersville News.

Big Sandy News -
Recently the Cincinnati and Louisville papers contained long accounts, under flaming headlines of some alleged volcanic capers being played by a mountain in Rowan county. Here is the secret: A visitor from Sugar Loaf mountain, in Rowan county, today reports that a party of men have gone into the fissures on the mountain and found several barrels of moonshine whiskey which had evidently been made there. John Hilderbrand and Parsley Crow, moonshiners, were arrested near there a week ago by Deputy United States Marshal Castle of Carter county. It is believed they operated in the moonshine and that the moonshine plant is their property. A further investigatein will be made as a small volume of smoke continues to come from the fissures in the mountains side.
