Itemized Account of Doings in Cify and
THE SALEJl DEPOT.
A few Words About Its Ro-location.
Somo Semi-ofllcial Ideas.
B. Koehlor, vice-president and re
ceiver of tho Oregon and California
railroad, and Supt. Brandt passed,
south yesterday, on a tour of in
spection. They stopped and examin
ed tho Salem depot location, and
will probably decido soon as to the
place where will be built tho new de
pot. The writer has it from semi-official
sources, that with tho right
sort of action on tho part of Salem's
business men, a relocation of the pas
senger depot could be secured at a
point far more convenient to the city ,
and to the traveling public. That
is, the depot would be built at the
intersection of State and Twelfth
streets. This would be done if the
railroad company is not required to
purchaso land for tho new depot.
There are agreatmanythingstobo
considered in connection with the
removal of tho site of that building.
First and most important to the city
is the relation of that location to
immigration. From tho present de
pot grounds, the first impression of
Salem that comes to a passing immi
grant, is very unfavorable, simply
because nothing can bo seen of the
city, except tho low .rocky flat
around tho depot. On tho contrary,
were tho depot located opposite ono
of the three or four main east and
west thoroughfares of tho city,4 tho
view that would meet the eye of tho
casual visitor would bo ono of beau
ty and attractiveness. The- Stato
house, court house, university, pub
lic school, beautiful residences and
streets lined on either hand with re
freshing shado trees it requires no
effort of tho imagination to under
stand the difference in the prospect,
and of course, the different idea of
Salem that the immigrant or travel
er would receive.
Again, it is reliably stated
that should the depot ho con
structed near streets that consti
tute the traveled highways of the ci
ty, a street car line, to be in timo ex
tended to the penitentiary and asy
lum will follow; other things to num
erous to name certainly point to the
necessity of the consideration of this
matter by tho business men of
Salem at least.
The "Antimony" Picnic.

Tho Sage of Yoncalla.
Jesse Applegate, known to nearly
every resident, and especially .pio
neers of Oregon, died at tho
home of his son, Alexander Apple
gate, in the Yoncalla valley, on
Sunday, April 22. Born in Ken
tucky in 1811, came to Missouri in
1S22, and was one of tho leaders of
tho immigration from Missouri to
Oregon in 1843. He settled on a
farm in Polk county, near where
Dallas now stands, and was em
ployed in surveying hero and at Or
egon City. In 1849 Jes&e moved to
tho Umpqua valley with his brother,
Charles. Mr. Applegate has been
prominent in Oregon, and especially
in the politics of Southern Oregon.
Ho was a member of tho Oregon
constitutional convention. In 1870
Mr. Applegate with B. F. Dowell,
went on tho bonds of Samuel E.
May, who had been re-elected secre
tary of state. May afterward be
came a defaulter, and Dowell paid
tho bond. Ho has shico worried
Applegate in the courts until tho
latter's property Avas all gone, part
to Dowell, and part to pay lawyers
and court fees, until finally the
strain on his nervous system became
too great, and "Undo Jesse," as
everybody called him, becamo par
tially insane. Ho was discherged
from the asylum as much improved
a few months ago, but ho never re
covered. IIo was a good man, and
his hand has many times relieved
the poor and needy. IIo was ono
of tho founders of this stato, and his
memory will long remain green in
tho minds of thoso who have any
appreciation of the work of tho
Worth Know Ins.

Now this particular bridgo is simply
an ordidary bridge across a little
stream, near tho rcsideuco of H. M.

Whether it is tho genial and cordial
entertainment of Mr. and Mrs.
Jones, tho charming and fascinat
ing society of the Misses Jones, tho
afiablo and courteous manner of
Jones, Jr., or somo mysterious charm
about this especial bridge, is a prob
lem yet unsolved. Other bridges in
tho neighborhood apparently do not
possess this wonderfully magnetic
power, and no doubt ere long somo
enterprising individual will erect an
ico cream stand at ono corner of tho
bridge, whero tho country swain in

can partako of ithis refreshing deli

In discussing tho prohibition
question tho Portland News uses
tho following strong urgument:
St. Joint, the apostate, instances
the voto for Fremont in 18o(! to ex
amplo the voto that tho prohibition
ists will get in tho coming Novem
berthat tho parallel between the
parties is identical ; and that pro
hibition will prevail as did tho abol
ition of slavery. This Is sheer non
seiiho In Mr. St. John, and nobody
knows better than himself that it is
transparent absurdity. This parallel
is all moonshine. Thero is no anal
ogy as concerns old abolitionism
and prohibition. Abolitionism had
to do with an enslaved race. Pro
hibition is tho denial of tho right of
personal liberty in a particular form,
and compulsion to conform to tho
ideas and dicta of others. Still, tho
abolition of slavery came at last
through tho results of tho most des
tructive war in history, in blood and
treasure. Shall thero be a repetition
of that war to secure prohibition?
