John Slavey, one of the marauders who "drunk and dressed up," boarded the train at Livingston last August and from there to Pittsburg terrorized train men and passengers by shooting off pistols and committing other breaches, was tried and assessed a fine of $150 and 3 months in the county jail. Main, Chumley and Barrett were his accomplices and they appear safe for the pen. Their cases come up at the next term. Main, however, has forfeited his bond and skipped. The railroad management, naturally, are well pleased at the action of an honest jury of Laurel county in the Slavey matter. Court convened at Williamsburg Monday where a three week term will be held.
