Kents a Klg at Sprluglield, Mo., to Dilve
a Friend Who Was tn Trouble to Another
Town and Loses Her Way In Jail at
Cassville Much Sympathy Felt for Her
and She May be Kelcased.
The story of the arrest of Mrs Johu
15. Steckman, who claimed Milan. 111.,
as her home, at Springfield. Mo., was I
published last week in Thk Aisi s. j
Meekman. on securiug a marriage li- '
cense at the Rock Island county
clerk s otliee tiept. II, said he was a
farmer living back of Milan. The
leader-Democrat of Spriuglield, Mo.,
says concerning the case:
Chief Hishop returned from Cass
ville. where he went to take Mrs. John
H. Steckman, the bride who is charged
with stealing a buggy and team from
Liveryman Owens, of Commercial
street, the alleged theft consisting of
hiring the rig and failing to return it,
but instead driving it to Harry county
near Cassville, where she was cap
tured. Contrary to expectation. Chief
Hishop did not bring the woman back
with him. He was accompanied to
Cassville by Liveryman Owen, anil af
ter he recovered his team, he was not
particularly anxious to prosecute. An
other reason for not bringing the
woman here is the fact that just now
there are no suitable jail facilities, and
as she is held in Cassville on the
charge of bringing stolen property in
to the county. Chief Hishop decided to
let it go at that.
"So in the Cassville jail the bride
who is alleged to be a horse thief re
mains. Her trial is set for Sept. 27.
"The prisoner refused to talk to
Chief Hishop. but to SherilT Stevens,
of Cassville, she said that she was
married to John H. Steckman, at Mi
lan, on Sept. 12. It was one of those
unfortunate marriages forced to
shield shame, and the bride was at
once deserted. Her husband gave her
f20 and told her to go wherever she
pleased. Without any specific purpose
in view, she iniught a ticket for this
city, and had but little money left
when she arrived here.
What Led Her to steal.
"In explanation of how she hap
pened to steal the team and buggy,
she says that after arriviug here she
met a young man by the name of
Tony Hassett, who had worked for her
father several years :igo. Tony said
he was in trouble and that he wanted
to get out of town immediately. lie
suggested the hiring of the team, she
says, although she was not informed
as to the nature of Tony's trouble.
They drore to Marionville Saturday
night, she says, where Tony left her.
He instructed her to return the team
to Springfield, and she says she start
ed to do so, but got lost on the way
and wound up in Harry county, where
she was an csted on description sent
out from here. She says her mother
and stepfather live in Arapahoe,
Oklahoma. Her former home was in
northern Iowa. Chief Hishop says the
alleged horse thief is about 21 years
old, well educated, and prepossessing
Mnch sympathy is felt for her at
Cassville and she will probably -3 re
