A Trainwrecker Goes to Jail
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Jan. 13.—Steve Fields, alias Steve Perry, a negro, who has been in jail here for some time charged with train wrecking on the Western railroad, 2 miles west of this city, had his preliminary trial before Justice Screws, and was held in bond of $500. J. J. Yarbrough, special agent for the Western, who was instrumental in bringing this wrecker to justice, says that the evidence is conclusive against him.

The Montgomery Monitor, Frank Baltzell’s pas paper, says: “It is reported that Joe Johnston can kick a fellow out more regretfully and make him believe somebody else is responsible for it more adroitly than any man who has hibernated at the capitol.”
