M’NEAL GOES TO ALA. FOR TRIAL
-------
CHECK “ARTIST,” WHO IS ALLEGED TO HAVE
UNLOADED SOME OF HISWORK HERE, WILL
ALSO ANSWER TO LIKE CHARGES THERE
-------
In custody of Sheriff T. C. Jenkins, of Wilcox County, Ala., J. A. McNeal, the "bad check artist," who unloaded some of his work at Pensacola, left yesterday for Camden, Ala., where ho will face several counts which have been returned against him by the grand jury.
McNeal is said to have been contemplating making a fight against being returned to Alabama, and did resist going back some time ago, but the attorney which he had at that time, was almost as bad off as the former client was yesterday, although in widely-separated and altogether different circumstances.
When the first fight against being returned to Alabama was made, McNeal retained J. J. Sullivan. Jr., who put up such good service for the prisoner that the latter remained here, which was just what was desired. Now when the Alabama sheriff returned for him, making the second trip to Pensacola, Mr. Sullivan was almost in as bad a predicament as his original client, for it was learned yesterday that the young Pensacola attorney, who is a passenger ostensibly for Rotterdam, is aboard a steamer, the Kronprinsesson Cecelia, the treasure ship bearing millions of gold to the Continent. The steamer was yesterday reported off the coast of Maine. In view of these conditions, McNeal was unable to have the service of young Mr. Sullivan yesterday, and of course was returned to Alabama for trial.
