UfBized Account of Doings in City and
FAILED TO MATERIALIZE.
That is What was the Matter With the
Citizen's Depot Meeting.
The meeting of the citizens, which
convened at the council chamber on
Saturday night, under the call of
Mayor Murphy was noteworthy for
only one thing: the nbsence of the
citizens. The consideration of the
matter of the removal of the depot
from its present site was postponed
The continual howl about that
"beastly place for n depot, phlzz
cw! Oh! my, why don't they move
the depot out of these flats?" etc.,
was simply buncombe ; nothing'
more. T'was ever thus. It is quite
evident the dissatisfaction over the
old depot location was not general.
A Jouiinal reporter had it from
Supt. of Bridges and Buildings De
Clarke this morning, that were the
non-action of the citizens of Salem
liual (and no one will doubt that it
IsJJjvork will be commenced on the
new depot building at the old loca
tion, in nbout ten days. The new
building will be somewhat larger
than the old one, and will be a very
ornamental building. It is the in
tention of the company to move the
switch to the east side of the main
track, and to build the new depot
dear on the west side of all the
tracks. This in conformance with
the wish of the traveling public, as
expressed through these columns
not long since. The city council
should now begin- to consider im
provemenbof the walks to the depot
from State street.
Ailolph Ma) er Assigns Again.
This morning n sfnnll knot of dis
appointed clerks and others could
be seen gazing at the iron doors of
the general merchandise establish
ment of Adolph Slayer, next the
postofflec, and soon it began to be
known that Slayer was trying to
arrange an amicable settlement w th
Ids creditors. He tiled his assign
ment this afternoon too late for the
JouiiXALto get an itemized state
ment of Ids liabilities; but it was
learned from Eugene Willis, .of the
Capitol Adventure Company, to
whom the assignment was made,
that the liabilities were a little in
excess of $23,000, while he could
probably find ?15,000 or 10,000 as
sets. Murphy, Grant & Co., Itosen
baum & Co., of San Francisco and
L. M. Haines of this city are the
principal creditors, and he owes his
wife's mother, a resident of Missi
ssippi, .!G00,borrowed money, which
wasplaeed in the business. The
failure was occasioned, said a well
informed business man, this after
noon, by Slayer's attempting to sell
goods too cheaply. San Francisco
creditors were crowding him, so he
assigned, to protect the other credit
ors. Hashed by a Horse.
A very serious, and perhaps fatal
accident occurred about two miles
this side of Silverton on Saturday
evening. A young man named
Bryan, already a cripple in his left
arm and leg, mounted a young
horse, with the Intention of riding
the animal to the pasture. The
horse became fractious, throw
Bryan, and then fell on him, crush
ing in his breast and head.
Bryan was taken liome by
ome one, and Dr. McCluro of
Silverton called in. Bryan could
only be given rest at all, at last ac
wunts, by heavy administrations of
chloroform, and with every breath,
a gurgle or rattle would sound In his
breast, that seemed to show that his
Injuries were internal, and severe.
He Is not expected to recover.

Etna Cason Agalnl
Etna Slagee (nee Cason), the girl
who has been the heroine, or other
wise, of a dozen notorious escapades
and romances is again on the down
ward path. Says the San Francisco
Chrenicle: "During Monday night
Ofllcer SIcKeau, in Benching for
Irene Sibrine, a runaway girl of
West Oakland, found her in com
pany with Etna, the latter having
deserted her hard-working alleged
husband several days ago. Etna's
story has been told in chapters
ninny times, consisting of her al
leged fall in Salem, Oregon, com
pelling Cason to marry her, her
rescue from a fallen life in Oakland
by the salvation army, her career as
a tambourine lassie, her third and
deeper fall In debauchery, her im
prisonment for vagrancy and mar
riage to honest James Slagee upon
her release and promised reform.
Then Cason claimed her as his wife
and in attempting to assert it in the
Slagee household was pitched out
the window by Slagee. Two months
later Cason induced her to run, away
with him, but at Stockton ho was
arrested for inducing her to lead a
life of shame, and she returned to
forgiving Slagee. She has been liv
ing respectably for about two
months." The people of Salem had
a good deal of sympathy for this
girl, at the time of iter first trouble,
which occurred here, but that is
about worn out by this time. Etna
is irretrievably bad.
Said the Jerey City Argus, of
Thursday, Feb. 2, 1888: "At the tab
ernacle last night, n largo audience
gathered to listen to Charles Dick
ens read selections from his father's
works. Sir. Dickens was right at
home on the Sands of Yarmouth,
and a better idea of tho Peggoty
household was obtained by his 11st
eners when lie had concluded than
they had ever before possessed. He
enters into the life of the humble
family as a member of it, and de
scribes their every day life precisely
as one would expect it from the gen
uine member of the family. Sir.
Dickens inherits the lovo of the
humorous. Tho readings were a
success, and Sir. Dickens will And
himself a welcome visitor In Jersey
City should he ever feel like stop
ping here again. He appears in
Salem on May 22, under the au
spices of the Willamette Unh entity.
A Lost Hoy.
On last Thursday the home of
Hon. Edwin T. Hatch, the republi
can nominee for state senator, near
SIcCoy, Polk coifnty, was the scene
of a very worrying sensation. A
pony that the children were in the
habit of riding escaped from the
bar.ii, while Sir. and Mrs. Hatch
were away, and the children went
out into tho field to get him. When
Sir. and Sirs. Hatch returned home
in the evening, Holt, the next
to tho youngest child, aged
about four years, was found to be
misting. After hunting tho house,
and out buildings thoroughly, they
thought he must liavo followed the
other children to the Holds, ho son roll
was instituted there for him. When
darkness fell, and still no traces of
tho lost loy, the family's uneasiness
iuoreased, and eight or ton men
from SIcCoy came, in response to a
summons, to aid in the search. The
entire night was spent in searching
through tho grain fields, until at
four o'clock in the morning ho was
found in the farthermost jwrt of the
farm, sitting with his feet in a little
ditoh of water, fully a mile from
homo. To gut whore he wits he had
crossed a swule with four Inches of
water In It at Its most ilmllow plat.
His olothes were dry, except his
stockings, and at last accounts the
little fellow was none the worse for
his night's outing.
