jail for indecent exposure, was exam

Judge Hayes, and was pronounced of
unsound mind. He was taken to the
state insane asylum by Sheriff Maddock
last Friday. Young Prindle was raised

reputation, and it is unfortunate that his
mind is affected. His parents iive in

Considerable time was taken up Tues
day with the esse ol W. A. Scoggan,
charged with setting fire to his barber
shop on Main street w ith malicious in
tent. There was no direct testimony to
show that he had set fire to the building,
and besides he was very much intoxica
ted at the time. There was a disposi
tion on the part of some persons to send
Scroggan to the penitentiary, if possible.
His attorneys were George C. Brownell
andG. G. Rinearson, and the former
made an eloquent plea in his defense be
fore the jury. Scroggan has an excellent
family, and he was fortunate is escaping
a probable seven years sentence in the
Oregon penitentiary. He will probably
profit by his narrow escape and be more
careful in the future. The jury, afier
being out about twenty minutes, re
turned a verdict of not guilty.
