William Eugene "Pussyfoot" Johnson raids an illegal distillery in Sioux City, Iowa during Prohibition.

A staged news film showing Prohibitionist William E. Johnson (aka "pussyfoot") accompanied by uniformed police officers raiding a rum liquor still, in Soux City Iowa. The officers kick open the doors of the distillery, and pull a man out. Then, from inside, two law enforcement men carry out a simple piece of distillation apparatus. Johnson sheds his coat jacket and proceeds to destroy the still equipment with a sledge hammer, bashing holes in the container and breaking pipe and distillation coils from the device. (Note: a slate alludes to Johnson losing an eye while crusading in London. That occurred on November 13,1919, when he was publicly "teased" by medical students who carried him on a stretcher through the streets. Johnson lost sight in one eye, after being struck with an object thrown by a spectator.)
