Four more Tallapoosa County, Ala., farmers have been taken to Montgomery by federal marshals, charged with peonage—W. D. Crosby, Jesse Berry, Jack Patilla and Allen Turner. They gave bonds of $1,000 each and returned to their homes. Patilla is overseer on J. W. Pace’s farm. He cannot write his name. Berry is overseer for the Crosbys. It develops that 11 indictments have been returned against J. W. Pace on the charge of conspiracy to seize negroes and hold them in peonage. He has already given bods amounting to $11,000.
