larceny. Before tho judge young
Devlne's attorneys plead for mercy
on account of the youth of the
prisoner, he having not yet arrived
at man's estate, the fact of his hav
ing returned tho puree which
contained but $11.50, to its owner,
and asked that In this instance the
penalty imposed should partake
more of. tho spirit of reform than
the punishment usually and right
fully meted out to tho hardened and
oft-erring criminal. After being

The Steamer a Total Loss.
Now nothing remains to do with
the wrecked Yaqulna Day but to
turn her over to the underwriters.
All eflorts to raiso her havo proved
futile and she Is a hopeless wreck ou
the sands. Sho was a first-class
steamship and was Insured for her
full value. Sho lies now careened
over on her side toward tho north,
with the seas running over her bows,
and little or no hopes are enter
tained of saving her.
Tho Indians havo many pretty
legends and allegories which are
handed down to the succeeding gen
erations and after a few years are a
part of history. To-day many of
these aboriginal words are in daily
usage and we scarcely stop to con
sider their meaning. "Chemekete,"
for which a street of the capital
city and her great hotel are named,
in tho language of the red man con
veys tho idea of " Our Home. "
The traveling public, since Salem's
popular hotel of this Indian name has
como under tho management of
Messrs. Monroe & Bell, see how ap
propriate the name really Is. Thoy
think of It as "Our Happy Home, "
for such it is.

Those who are canvassing for the
bonus necessary for the Center street
extension report good progress and
think they will be able to secure tho
$1,000 which Is required by tho com
pany, with very little cll'ort. As
soon us this bum is raised work will

This will bo a paying lino, as It will
reach the thickly populated and resi
dent portion of tho city.
The Dead Convict.
The remains of Robert Cavana,
who died at tho penitentiary Thins
day, were this morning taken to
Huntington bv his motherfor burial.
The coffin was inclosed in a zinc

In regard to Oregon prunes the
St. Paul Press says : "One fact no
ticeable In tho present operations of
