He Hols His Wife and Then Leaves
Her For Another Woman. An
The kind people of Snleni will
vividly remember tho case of Neal
Murphy who was sentenced to a ten
years term ill the penitentiary from
Portland in 1SS2, for forging checks,
ami of hi1 kind, loving wife, who,
remaining true to her villain of a
hiblKind, removed to this city, when
ho was brought to the prison, and
took up her home in the little house
adjoining the old court house, on
the west, on Court street, and opened
a hair store. How she struggled
along earning a meager living for
herself and child; how every Sun
day, rain or shine, she and her
child made their weekly pilgrimage
to the place where the husband
and father lay imprisoned for crime
of which "he believed him innocent;
how kindly people grew interested
in the case; how they secured a par
don for the convict from Gov. Moody
in December 18S0, and these new
found friends made up a purse and
started them on their way toward a
new life. They went to San Fran
elsco, and, failing to get employ
ment there, continued on to Fresno,
California, where they arrived in
A few months after their arrival
there, Xeal began to show the vile
uessof his character, and to show
attention to a young girl, to abuse
his wife and demand money from
her. He quit work, but his wife
still loving and true appealed to
friends to give him another chance,
and together they rented u lodging
house, and he quit payingattentions
to the girl; but in a few days he
began the same thing with another,
a daughter of respectable people,
who had stood high in Fresno social
circles. This intimacy grew and
continued until the time of Mur
phy's llight, and it is said the girl
U soon to join him. Last Marcli
Mrs. Murphy took $1G0, which she
had saved and kept from Murphy,
hi; usually demanding all
her money and spendingiton buggy
rides, etc., with this girl, and paid it
tea firm for the lease of another
Mock, larger than the one she then
occupied, and arranged to give up
the house she was in on April 1st.
When the time came, Mr. Bradley,
owner of the Bradley block, which
Mr. Murphy supposed she had
leased, Mid it was verbally leased to
the present occupant for a longer
tune, and Mrs. Murphy found her
df without a house. Mrs. Murphy
then began an action against Brad
ley for damages. The family then
moved into a small house in the
rtberus of Fresno, and Mrs. Murphy
paid their expenses. Saturday, Apr.

IT MAY HE MOVED.
Tho Depot Matter Progressing Finely
Money Can be liaised.
A JounxAi. reporter had quite a
talk with Mayor Murphy this aftor
noon, and learned thatthe prospects
forsecurlng the location of the now
depot at thecorner of 12th and Court
streets were brightening.
It is estimated that the ground
that will be required to ac
comodate the new depot, be
tween Court and Chemeketa streets
can be bought for a sum not to ex
ceed $3000, and it is pretty gouorally
thouglU by members of the Univer
sity board that an absolute deed to
the property at present occupied by
the company would be granted with
out diillculty. The sum of 8000
could be easily raised, said several.
uuuness men, or more if necessary.
The main "hinging point" remains
the 10,000 bond which the railroad
company wants, in lieu of the vaca
tion of the street required to be used
it being thought that the city char
ter gave no authority for vacating
streets. Mayor Murphy lias found
a general law (sec. 41S0, Hill's Code)
granting to incorporated towns the
right to vacate streets, and ho thinks
that section gives the council sulll
cient power, and he will submit the
matter to Mr. Koehlerat once. The
council meets to-morrow night when
the mayor, recorder and city attor
ney will make a full report regard
ing tne mattoj-.
There seems to be no good reason,
now, why the much clnmored after
removal of the dopot cannot be se
cured by the citizens of Salem, and
tho writer of this ventures tho asser
tion that the erection of a handsome
depot building in plain view of the
state house, court house, east school,
Willamette University, and the
beautiful streets lined with refresh
ing shade trees, would be of inesti
mable value to tho city in many
ways, aside froiy its manifest con
veniences. Let the depotbemoved!
(Iranc Meeting. .
The Salem Grange held an inter
esting session on Saturday, which
was well attended. The question,
"have the sisters a right to expect
political assistance from tho broth
ers" was discussed with some vivaci
ty, and a decided leaning shown to
ward the alllrmatlvc.
The temperance question was
made the topic of a spirited discussion-.
Tho question seemed to turn
on what constitutes temperance. It
was held that the strictly temperate
individual is temperate in all things;
such as eating, drinking, language,
dress, in fact all things that go to
make up our existence. While in
regard to the things, the use of
which is generally abused, it was
held that there is no such thing as
tho moderate use of a hurtful article.
This, of course, to apply to the use
of liquor as a beverage. Itemarks
were made on the question by Mis
ter Minto, Brooks, .lory and by
Brothers Port, Stephens, II. S. Jory,
wagner, Boork, Donalson and
othcis. Tho state master being
present favored the Grango with
sonio well timed and interesting re
marks. It was suggested- tha.t the State
Agricultural College at Corvallis bo
turned into an experimental farm,
where tho science of fanning in all
its branches,can bo taught in a prac
tical form to elevate and educate tho
rising generation in such a way.that
they may take more kindly to ag
riculture ns an occupation. .

Tin: Califoruians have been blessed
with a copious rain lately, which ex
tended all over the state, and they
rejoice over it as an escape from ruin
to their crops. It is estimated as
worth millions of dollars to the
farmers, but in some localities the
grain is injured beyond repair. Tho
margin between drouth and abun
dance in that state is a narrow one.
