LOS ANGELES, Cal., Feb. 9.—Let ters from the east say that ex-presi dent Cleveland contemplates making his home In California, at least dur ing a part of each year. Los Angeles newspapers are now urging that he do so, and suggesting that commercial bodies make the welcome formal. It i s said that Mr. Cleveland favors the Los Angeles neighborhood. Local bodies will in a few days take formal action, declaring that he will be wel comed not only by the Los Angeles people but by those of the entire etate.

LEWISTON, Feb. 9.—As the result of the construction of the Lewiston- Riparia line, there will be two or three good towns built along the Snake river between this point and Riparia.

It is stated that fully one-third of the grain is handled by the warehouses on the south band. Relative to the new towns it is also ex plained that with a double train service over the river line, the residents of a large section of the river, who have gone to the outside railway, will as a matter of convenience, patronize the river towns when the new road is placed in operation. DAVIS DENIED A NEW TRIAL CONVICTED DEPUTY SHERIFF WILL BE SENTENCED ON FEB RUARY 15 AT PENDLETON. PENDLETON, Feb. 9. —Yesterday morning Judge J. A. Fee filed a motion for a new trial in the case of the State vs. C. P. Davis, who was convicted last week of larceny of $4,200 while a deputy sheriff. Judge Fee appeared before Judge Ellis of the circuit court and before making a motion for a rehear ing, stated that the conduct of one of the jurors who sat on the case had been investigated since the trial and that he would withdraw such as being one of the. grounds for a new trial. When the written motion was deliv ered to the court Attorney Fee stated that he would not argue it, whereupon Judge Ellis denied the motion. The date for passing sentence upon Davis was fixed for Thursday, February 15. It is understood that if the sentence is light no appeal will be made to the supreme court.

VIENNA, Feb. 9—An anecdote, hith erto unpublished, concerning Archduke Francis Charles, father of the emperor of Austria, appears in a new book wri'ten by a retired diplomat, just published. During- a walk in the Styrian hills the archduke got into conversation with a talkative farmer, who, after giv ing a good deal of information about his own family, suddenly asked the archduke: "Who's your father?" "Emperor," was the answer. "Look here." said the farmer, "if you want to be funny don't you shout. There are gendarmes about, and you might easily get run in for lese m'a jeste! I dare say you've a brother. What's he?" "Oh, he's an emperor too." "Well, you're a funny chap," said the farmer, laughing heartily. "Have you any children?" "Yes, thank God; there is my boy, Francis Joseph." "What's he?" "Emperor." "Ha! ha!" roared the farmer, dig ging the father of emperors in the riba. Have you any more sons of that sort?" "Yes, a second, called Max." "Isn't he an emperor?" "Yes, he is also an emperor." After relieving his feelings by giv ing a wild leap in the air the farmer clapped the archduke on the shoulder and said, "Look here, old friend. The next time you are passing Mariazell asylum drop in and see if there hap pens to be a place vacant." GRIGGS SEARCHED WITH X RAY BULLET LOCATED IN SPHENOID BONE OF WOUNDED BOY'S HEAD LAST NIGHT. Eugene, the 12-year-old son of W. j H. Griggs, shot through the head with j a 32-caliber revolver in the hands of I his brother Corbett, Wednesday morn - j ing, is rapidly recovering from ttuj effects of the shot, although the at tending physicians say complications may result later that might prove seri ous. The little fellow was taken to the offices of Drs. Suttner and Boyle fcy his mother last night and an X-ray examination made. The bullet was located in the sphenoid bone at a point about two and a half inches from the point of entrance in the nose. It was thought at first that the bul let had taken a downward course and lodged in the throat, but the X-rays showed that it took almost a straight course and became embedded in the sphenoid bone. Unless complications set in the bullet will probably be lei't where it is. The examination was made under considerable difficulty, the boy evincing frenzied fear of the sput tering machine, making it necessary for Mrs. Griggs to hold him before the globe by main force while the phy sicians made the examination. Exceot for a little hole in his nose where the bullet entered the boy shows little effects of his close call from instant death.

SHORT RAVES AT OFFICERS Great Northern Train Robber Talks When Convicted REFUSED TO OBEY HIS ATTORNEY Sheriff Considers Tri?.| as Most Im portant and May Lead to Recover of the Money. Convicted by a jury on a charge, which in the eyes of the officers of th? law. leaves no doubt a s to his connec tion with the Great Northern train rob bery, Lem Short has lost the indiffer ence which has marked his demeanor since his arrest, and this morning the corridors of the county jail rang with his denunciations of Assistant Attor ney Vandeveer and the sheriffs depu ties who worked up the evidence now against him. Ae he was led into the jail from the courtroom last evening after hearing the jury pronounce him guilty of the charge of stealing the horse and wagon believed to have been used by train robbers Short was firmly admonished by h's attorney to keep his mouth shut, and told that his friends would stay by him, says the Seattle Times. It took the jury five hours to reach an agreement as to Short's guilt and the verdict came as a climax to one of the hardest fought criminal cases which has been tried in the courts of King county for years. Short's arrest was made as the result of several weeks' hard work on the part of the sheriff's office to run down the men who robbed the Great Northern train at Moscow Point on the evening of October 2. Tried to Prove Alibi. One of the most valuable clews which the officers had was the horse and wa gon found near the scene the next morning. It developed that this outfit was stolen from Isaac Calhoune, a rancher living near Kent, on Sunday night previous to the robbery, which was on Monday, and Short was arrest ed for the theft, Deputy Sheriff Hills and McKinnon locating him at Che halis in November. Short attempted to prove an alibi and some forty witnesses were called to prove that he was at home on the night the rig was stolen. The state also had a large number of witnesses, several of whom testified to having seen Short in the wagon early Monday morning. The trial lasted a week and two days and every point was bitterly contested by the opposing attorneys. Deputy Prosecuting Attorneys Vandeveer anr Miller, conducted the prosecution, the defendant being- represented by Wooten & Welch. Officers Are Elated. The officers are elated at the result of the trial and claim to have informa tion which, in connection with the re sult of the trial just over, will in probability lead to the apprehension of the other participants in the hold-up and the recovery of the money which was stolen, and to those who have fol - lowed the case closely. Short's arrest and conviction is considered as fine a piece of detective work as has been done in a long time. Attorney Wooten this morning filed a j norice for application for a new triai. and it is probable that the case will be taken into the supreme court before it is finally decided. Short's father, it is said, has sold his home in order to raise funds with which to defray the expenses of the trial. TO WAIT FOR YERKES WILL. Then the Widow Who Is Now a Bride Will Seek More Millions. XEW YORK, Feb. 9.—There is con siderable speculation today among the friends of Mrs. Adelaide Yerkes-Miz ner and the associates of her late hus band, Charles T.

When Mr. Mizner could be seen this afternoon, for he did not rise until 2 p m.. he said: "We understand thnt the will of the late Mr. Yerkes is to be filed in Chicago on February IS.
