Baty, the partner in the swiudle, is safely
in Victoria, spending bis portion of the ill-
got teu gains. If thoie is not a law whereby
such rogues can be punished, oue should be

Ou last Tuesday Hoeau commenced auit
against Mr. J. C. Yates, who signed the

The Orecon City Enterprise of this week
has the following to say of Hogan aud Baty,
the wheat swindlers:
"It appears that one Houan is at the head
of the concern, He cam from Michigan
aud is said to be the same par'y that ran the
liobciuian oats swindle in the Western Mutes
a few years agd. He first tried to interest C.

W S. Johnny.
About a year ago Warm Spriag Johnny
waa tried at Euguna ou the charge of at
tempting to rob the Lau County Treasurer's
office, aud was convicted aud sentenced to
three years' imprisonment in the State peni
tentiary. There Was a gensral belief, shared
by the Democrat, at th time, thut Johnny
was not guilty. Th msmbers of th O. A.
K. of Eugene have come to this conclusion,
from a letter received from Chief of Polic
Parrish of Portland, and will petition the
Governor for the pardon of Johnny. Mr,
Parrish recently learned that a man just sent
to th Moatana penitentiary confessed to
having been th on whe attempted to rob
the Treasurer's oflic and the matter will b
investigated. Johnny' attorney, Hon. L.
II. Moutany, of thi city, is doing what he
can to learn th truth of the matter. It
looks very much a if Johnny had been
wrongfully imprisoned, and there i certainly
enough iu the proof to eutitle him to a par
don. A petition would be generally sigued
in Albany. Albany Democrat.
The Allmny Herald has also made a simi
lar statement. It is evidently the work of
the attorneys of Johnny. Tb U. A. R. Post
of this city has not petitioned for his pardon,
nor have agreed to. The confession is thin.
Undoubtedly there w. re two parties in th
robbrry, for Messrs. Witter and Clark, night
watchmen, saw then running away, and from
the evidence adduced at the trial it was cer
tsinly proven that Johnny was one of them.
The jury that tried him was only out a few
minutes, at conclusive waa the testimony,
although Im was di-fended by thrte able at
t rr.c ys, Mr. M iutauye being on of th
number. One thing is rertaia, aud that is
