Donald, took the stand he told for
the first time the name of the other

and his name was Harry Wong," Sins

carried two suitcases. I let him sleep
it my house over night and the next
day he went off with only one of the
suitcases. When he waved good-by
he said he left something in the house
and would come back for it later.
I've never seen him since."
Sing was arrested after officers

Donald. Shots are said to have been
exchanged and the whole affair was

Man. Pardoned From Life Sen
tence, Declares ePopIc Seem
Belter Off Than Before.
SALEM. Or.. Oct. 4 John Arthur
Pender, who recently was pardoned
from the state penitentiary after
serving eight years of a life term
for the murder of Mrs. Daisy Wehr
mun and her little son in Columbia
county in September, 1911. called at
the executive offices here today and
personally expressed his appreciation
of the action taken by Governor Ol
cott in giving hinrhis freedom.
"When I entered the prison," said
Pender, "there was a saloon on every
corner; people were shappibly clad,
the streets were crowded with
"drunks" and idleness prevailed in
all sections of the state. When 1 re
turned to Portland two weeks ago I
noticed a great change. Everybody
Is well dressed, social conditions are
improved and there is work for all
who would be self-respecting and
honorable. I hardly knew Portland,
but I am glad to say that the saloon
is gone and that the temptations
whirh Tiave sent many good men to
prison have been eliminated.
"Sly aged mother, who was so loyal
to me during my long term of con
finement, is the happiest woman in
the world, while my wife shed tears
of Joy when we were united on the
night of my release from prison."
Mr. Fender told Governor Olcott to
day that conditions at the peniten
tiary were the best at the present
time of any period during his eight
years' incarceration in the institution.
