who pleaded with'. Wm Saturday for
the pardon of Banker Ross, Acting
Governor Bowerman, a few minutes
later, as his last official act, signed
the pardon of David A. Wisner. serv

S The refusal to pardon Ross and the
pardon of Wisner, a man utterly with

behalf, except a petition signed by
residents of Harney , and Malheur
counties, which" was covered with dust
and almost forgotten among the arch
les at the statehouse, were In strik

the convict Is said to He a wntJmfnj

of a flaxen haired baby boy-. . : ' I
Wisner, now aged 55 years, took up
a homestead near Juntura, in Malheur
county, about three years ago. Jun
tura and Westfall have frequently
been referred to as the "cities with
nameless graves" on account of the
number of men said to have been
burled there who met their deaths by
acts of violence. Among those settlers

dents generally aro reported to have
been the three Dull brothers. J
Resisting the -attempt of the three
brothers to drive him off his proper
ty. WlBner "got the drop" on one of
them, who came upon his land and
killed him. He pleaded guilty to mur
der in the second degree and was sen
tenced to life Imprisonment.
Left to struggle for herself and ,to
provide a home for their six child

return to the Molalla district in Clack

When Acting Governor Bowerman's
candidacy for election to that office
took him to Oregon City, Mrs. Wis

husband be pardoned. She was ac

"Big man, let my papa come home
and mamma will quit crying."
Without giving the woman a defin

his handNon the child's head and said:
"Madame, take this boy home and
take care of him and your other child

Dont worry any; more about your
