SAUNDERS TOGO FREE.
It is Definitely State l that Pennoyer
Will Pardon Him.
The Oregonlan is authority for the
statement that it can be definitely
stated that before he retires from office
Governor Pennoyer will grant a par
don to Captain William Wirt Saunders
sentenced to life imprisonment for the
killing of Charles Campbell, at Albany
in 1885. Mr. George W. Belt, district
attorney at the time of Saunders1 trial,
has joined, it is understood, in recom
mending executive clemency for Saun
ders, and this, coupled with the earn
est solicitation of many others in be
half of the imprisoned man, has In
duced Governor Pennoyer to give the
application favorable consideration.
In doing so the pard in will lie granted
with the express understanding that
Captain Saunders will leave the state
and not return.
The case of Baunders lias been one
of the most celebrated in the criminal
annals of Oregon. Sentenced .to be
hanged, a fugitive from Justice, his
recapture and second trial, resulting
in a sentence of life imprisonment, all
made Saunders notorious throughout
During his term of prison life no
inmate of the pitentiary has attracted
more attention among visitors than
Captain Saunders. During the entire
period be has been a model prisoner.
During the sessions of the legislature
many of the members and scores of
others visited him, nearly all of whom
signed the petition for his pardon,
fthich he would present. He has
always entertained the hope that he
would soon be released, but it has been
so long deferred that the realization of
his great desire, so near at hand, will
be a joyful surprise.
Saunders has always maintained his
innocence of murdering Campbell,
claiming be did the shooting in self
defeu. Campbell, as he lay dyiug,
made nis ante-mortem declaration In
the presence of Mr. George Chamber
lain, and Dr. Maston, saying that he.
had been "shot down like a dog."
Mr. Chamberlain has always refused
to co-operate with those seeking the
release of Saunders. He Bus no Ill
feeling toward the pris mer, and says
that when Saunders was convicted
aud sentenced hisdutyasaprosecutlng
officer elided, but he would not con
scientiously join with others in asking
' They We.re, Swindled.
A number of over credulous Corval
lis business men mourn the loss of $100
cash. A month or more ago they in
vested that amount in a lottery scheme
of which J. H. Lombard, of New Or
lcaus, was agent, aud the big prize
they were to draw in return never
materialized, and never will. Oily
worded letters from the same Arm are
now being received by various parties
in tlie city. After enjoining strict
secrecy one of these letters reads: "If
you will get us a club and send us by
express $25 we will send you twenty
five one-fifth tickets. One ticket will
be in a separate envelope aud we guar
antee that it will win 11,000. Borne of
the tickets in the package will also win
small prices." Strange as It may seem
there are men In Camilla foolish to
believe that for a (25 Investment more
tbau $1,000 Is to be realized, but such
there are, as the S100 recently blown
In on the scheme testifies. To any who
contemplate, the following from a re
cent letter from Paul Conrad, manager
of the Honduras Lottery Cqmpauy
will be interesting! 'J. H. Lombard
& Co. are not and never have been our
agents. They are frauds, Bwindlers
und counterfeiters, aud are nowin tbe
hands of the police." Corvallis Times,

Mis. Downing Is stopping in this

ments with R. W. Veatch to bring the

Veatch will leave Monday with rubber

then be placed In the coffins aud taken

To TIIK EolTOB OF THH KXPRRSR;
Please permit me to correct a mis
take made in an obituary notice In
your issue of last week as 1 feel that it
Bhould be made and I know of none
more competent to make the correction
than myself. In tin obituary notice
of MrB. Elizabeth H. Skinner, of Eu
gene, the writer says, "Mrs. Skinner
crossed tbe plains in 1847, in the same
train with E-Governor Moody and
Hon. 8. It. Thurston, etc." Mrs. Sklu
ner did not cross the plains In 1847, nor
at any other time. She came to Ore
gon via the Isthmusof Panamaln 1852,
possibly lu 1851, She was one of sev
eral ladles who came to this coast a t
teachers; under the direction in som ;
way, of Governor Blade, of Massachu
setts. She, then Mlsa Elizabeth Hop
kins Lincoln, Miss Blackler, wh i
afterward married Gov. John P.Gaines;
Miss Miller, who afterward married
Hoii. Joseph G. Wilson, and others
whose names I do not now remember,
constituted this corps of teacher-.
Among tlie passengers who came out
on the ship were Ex-Governor 8. F.
Chadwick, of Salem, Dr. A. H. Steele,
of Astoria. She was married in 1856, .
if I midtake not, to Judge Alonso A.
Skinner, oye of the noblest men I ever
knew. She was a teacher of a private
school in the family of my brother, J,
D. Holman, for a term of years, and)
was my preceptress for about two yea s.
If there is any one, aside from m
parents, to whom I owe a greater debt
of gratitude than any other, for the
shaping of my education, it is she.
A grand, horoic woman has gone from
earth, and. it is with sadness I pen
these lines, and in tears I must say
farewell dear, good sister till we rued
in heaven, I regard it as a person t
misfortune that I could not hiva
known of her illness, that I migh','
measurably at least, have repaid the
debt of kindness she so richly merit.d
at my hands. Most Respect fully,
F. DlLLARD HoLMAN.
Hogs Will Bring Money,
A fur.ner of this district tlie other
day Informed a neighor that he hid
thousands of bushels of wheat tint
wouldn't pay to haul to market and
knew where he could get plenty of
hogs, but would not purchase them
because there was no market for pork
or bacon In this country. We would
respectfully inform the farmer that a
hog-buyer traveled over Morrow ooui.
ty last week looking for fat, live hog
for shipment. He purchased 100 head
from one farmer, paying 3 cents on
foot at the ranch, and a smaller band
from another farmer at 3 cents. The
buyer did not come into Gilliam coun
ty because he knew there were no
bands of hogs in the county, but just
as soon as we have the hogs, you niy
depend upon it we will have plenty of
huyors after them.
The Hop Outlook.
A letter received by Smith & Beadbi
from Wm. Boswell & Co., of London,
under date of September Sth, says,
"Tlie present position of tlie hop mar
ket seems to fully justify the advice
given by our Mr. Boswell to all the
growers ho met lu the summer of 18ii;
viz to reduce rather than increase their
plantations of hops. Some samples of
1804 Californias now on tlio way ar ?
already to hand and are offered at 8!
to 10 cents per pound In London. We
understand many growers on your
side say they will not pick their hops,
This seems rather a mistake, as even
if the hops are not very vuluable this
year, they may be worth big money
next. If prices continue very low, tho
large brewers are sure to lay in heavy
stock to guard against scarcity in iho
future and if bops are promptly taken
off the market as they arrive, which
seems extremely likely in view of the
low prices ruling tlie small quantities
which promise to be shipped we may
see a steadily Improving market this
season instead of a continual drop like
last year." Eugene Register.
All who have taken subscriptions on

bors that they can have the Express
