' Salem. Or., Jan. 14. Harry D. Egbert
the man condemned to be hanged at
the penitentiary on Friday. January 29.
is bearing his confinement in the shadow
of the gallows well, and is much more
theerful than would be 'expected from
a, man placed in the position In which
Kket WroaeU- He eats. welL
Bleeps well, and spends hist time in con
versation with the death wai;ch that is
constantly at his side. Almost every
day he is given exercise, his death watch
and other guards walking about witn
him In the narrow limits allowed him,
and he la cheerful and pleasant when in
conversation with visitors, when he
feels certain they are not there from
Idle curiosity, but are anxious to assist
in every legai and proper way to make
his short stay on earth- as pleasant as
It Is possible for 'one who Is doomed.
He is constantly under the eye of one
guard,! J. P. Peterson keeping him com
pany . during the day shift and Troy
Branson at night. Both men were es
pecially engaged for this duty, and they
are doing satisfactory work,
A representative of The Journal vis
ited Egbert in his cell in the peniten
tiary yesterday afternoon and found the
young man comparatively cheerful He
stated that he had great hope of secur
ing a new trial and a change of venue,
when lie was satisfied that he would es
cape with a much lighter sentence,
urging that he 'should not, under the
evidence produced by the state, be held
for a greater degree of crime than man
slaughter. ."My conviotion was not so much the
result of the damaging testimony intro
duced by 'the state," he said, "as it was
the demands made for my life by a por
tion of the people f Burns. A mob was
formed before I was returned to Burns
for trial, and when the officers having me
In charge n eared that place the mob,
provided with a rope, was waiting for
me with the firm determination to mete
out summary punishment to me, and
It was only the- determined stand taken
by Sheriff Allen an excellent officer,
by the way that saved my life at that
time, and his force of deputies pre
vented the mob from hanging me.
Threats were frequently made that if
the jury did not convict me of murder
In the first degree I would be hanged
anyway, and as a result nothing else
could prevent mob law than my con
viction of a capital crime, when. It I
could have secured a change of venue,
with the same testimony, I would only
have been found guilty Tf manslaughter.
My attorney, Mr. 3. D, Leedy, writes
me that he Is In hopes of completing ar
rangements that will enable him to
perfect an appeal, and if that can be
done and I can have a change ot venue.
I will not be executed. I am more hope
ful now than ever, and I believe that
the appeal will be taken and a new trial
secured fop me." . .
Egbert is a fine-looking "young fellow,
17 years old, and was born and raised in
Audobon county, Iowa, coming ' from
there to Oregon in 1900. He is fairly
well read, talks intelligently, and is
cheerful and open.' He said that by the
kindness of Superintendent James of the
penitentiary several Christian women
had been allowed to come to his cell
door, and that their visits and conversa
tion had cheered him, and he especially
thanked the superintendent for keeping
away the morbidly curious. He .spends
a good portion of his time in reading,
securing what hooks he asks for from
the prison library, and he is well cared
for and at the same time closely watched
by the officers.
Since his arrival at the prison he has
written his father for assistance in
.fighting his case. His father resides
at Smith Centre, Kan., and the prisoner
hopes to secure from home the neces
sary aid to lighten his punishment, but
expresses. himself as ready to die If it
must be so.

District ' Attorney Frank Menef ee. of
The Dalles, has forwarded a petition
to Governor Chamberlain praying for
the pardon of B. B. Deford and Alva
Morley, two young men sentenced to
the penitentiary from Wheeler county
on April 2$ last, to serve two yesrs each
for the crime of larceny. The men were
convicted for stealing from a store a
quirt worth about 75 cents, and the
district attorney, in a letter accompany
ing the petition from Wheeler county
residents, says that the sentence was
imposed more on account of the bad re
pute of the men for being constantly
with a gang of criminals than for the
otiense with which they were charged.
Governor Chamberlain is in receipt of

vention, to be' held in Hartford, of that

dock building In Vancouver Is nearlng
completion. Last night the management
laid off 10 to 12 of its employes, keep
ing only enough to launch the last pon
toon. When this pontoon Is launched,
so far as known now. there Is to be no
more work done over here, so far as
the Portland drydock la concerned.
This, in connection with the shutting
down of the Columbia River Lumber
company's sawmill, has thrown a number
of laborers idle in Vancouver. The saw
mill Is expected to operate again in the
near future. The mill intended at the
beginning of this week to run no longer
than was necessary to cut enough lum
ber to fill the ship that was loading
here. The vessel took about 500,000 feet
of lumber from here and Intended to
finish loading at Oak Poirit.
The shut down of the sawmill Is for
the purpose of getting everything In
readiness for the receiver's sale, which
is to take place on the 16th of this
month. And whether the-jnlll will be
operated after that time depends very
much on who purchases the same. Not
only is the mill to be sold, but also all
the logs in the booms at Lewis river
and the manufactured lumber In the mill
yard are to be sold. There are a large
number of contracts for standing tim

a share of the . fortune estimated at
about $500,000, and la the only one on

will probably follow as another family
of Sulllvans living in Ireland baa made
claim to the property and the American

their title. The estate consists of valu
