On October 19, 1893 The Comet newspaper ran a story about Bert's father J. Logan Briggs. "He is a well-to-do man, above the average in this world’s goods. He has a splendid ten acre orchard on his place and right in the center he had an illicit still.” He, Jesse S. Rice and two others were arrested. This was his third offence.
