A. J. Weston, Life Tenner,
Freed After Serving
Only Half Year.
Governor Convinced Man
Innocent in Spite of
Strong Evidence
- Against Him.'
' (AaoeUtcd Pm Uuti Win.)
SALEM. Ore.. Oct. 28. A. J.
Weston, twice convicted In Des
chutes county and once In Wasco
county of second degree murder in
connection with the killing of Rob
ert H. Krug, aged citizen of Sis
ters. Ore., last night left the state
penitentiary with a full pardon
from the bands of Governor Pierce.
Weston has served a little more
than a year of a lite sentence. His
first conviction waa reversed by
the state supreme court and the
case remanded for a new trial. The
second trial was held, Weston was
again convicted of second degree
murder snd once more the supreme
court reversed it on grounds that
the lower court erred In admitting
new testimony and again remand
ed the case. A change of venue to
Wasco county was obtained for the
third trial in which Weston was
tgain convicted and sentenced to
life. No appeal was taken after
the third trial, but Weston's wife
has constantly kept the case be
fore Governor Pierce, declaring her
husband was the victim of a
""frame up" and asking for his pardon.-
The governor refuses to
comment on the case other than t6
say that he became convinced that
Weston was Innocent. The crime
was committed March 24, 1919.
-The murder of Krug was one of
the most revolting In criminal an
nals of the state. The evidence In
dicated that the aged man had
been beaten, then tortured until he
died, after which fire was set to
his cabin and the body burned.
.Weston waa arrested for the crime
18 months after It was committed,
when he was taken Into custody on
Information furnished by George
Stilwell and Joe Wilson, who were
employed with Weston at a saw
mill near Krug's home.
Evidence Shews Quilt.
Stilwell declared that he was
compelled by Weston to accompany
him to Krug's cabin, but that he
had no knowledge the aged man
was to be killed. He testified thst
Weston struck Krug on the head
and then tortured him in an effort
to make him tell where his money
was hidden, firing the cabin when
Krug died. Joe Wllson'a testimony
was that Weston later confessed
the crime to him. There was other
testimony indicating that Weston,
Stilwell and Wilson were engsged
In bootlegging thst Krug had
knowledge of their activities and
that this was one reason for their
wishing to get him out of the way.
though the prosecution contended
thst robbery was the primary mo
tive. The stste to prove robbery the
motive, submitted testimony thst a
note for 2300 made out to Krug
and signed by W. S. Fullerton, was
found among Weston's effects af
ter his arrest. Also there waa tes
timony that Weston had borrowed
a revolver and threatened Krug's

Vegetable Crops Committee
Predict Huge Yield for
Coming Season.
Marketing of Single High
Class Grade and Canning
' of Seconds Offered as
Aid to Market.
The vegetable crops committee of
the Douglas county agricultural
economic conference met last night
In the office of County Agent
Cooney and definitely drafted a
program of fact finding upon which
to base its report to the general
conference November 19 and 20.
D. N. Busenbark. chairman of
the committee, presided. The com
mittee proposes, on the basis of
Its study, to draft a program of
broccoli and vegetable crops pro
duction that will permit the con
tinuance of this important indus
try along most economic lines.
Tentative estimates made by the
committee members places the
broccoli acreage In the county this
year slightly in excess of 4000
seres. This acreage. It Is believed,
providing normal conditions pre
vail, will produce 1600 to 2000 car
loads of broccoli. If the crop ma
terialises It will be by far the
largeat crop ever harvested In the
countv. the maximum thus far be
ing 283 carloads from the 1923-24
crop. i
- Standardization and development
of certified seed strains, orderly
marketing of the crop and the sat
uration point In production, the Im
portance of putting a alngle hleh
quality grade on the market, possi
bilities of disposing of second
grade broccoli through canning,
were a few of the Important mat
ters discussed by the committee
which will be emphasized at the
November meeting. All were agreed
upon the Importance of marketing
a single grade of high quality broc
coli. Keeping off the market the
poor quality "stuff" and find a mar
ket for it through canning would
be advantageous to all. The abil
ity of local canneries to handle a
large portion of second gradea will
be Investigated.
Good or bad seed has often meant
the difference between success or
failure of broccoli and a plan will
be studied whereby certified and
tested seed might be made avail
able. While such a atep might
help. It was the opinion of Dr. C.
H. Bailey that brocccll seed does
not always act the same. The same
lot of seed may give good results
one year and the following year
result In a poor crop because of
the variable climatic conditions.
Dr. Bailey Indicated.
It wss the belief of the commit
tee, expressed In a motion, that the
time had come when the population
of Roseburg Justified the estab
lishment of a public market. Refer
ence was made to a public market
which operated several years ago.
G. A. Llndblom was appointed to
make a thorough study of such a
possibility and report his findings
at the final meeting of the com
mittee. Those present at the meeting
were I). N. Busenbark. C. H. Ilslley.
Foster Btltner. C. E. Marks. Huch
Ritchie, Henry Lander. U. A. Llnd
blom. Herbert Beyers. The com
mittee adjourned until the confer
ence session on November 19, un
less Chairman Busenbark felt It
advisable to hold another meeting
before the conference.
Arrangements were completed
yesterday for the use of the armory
for the conference sessions, and
plans were formulated by R. A.
Busenbark, general chairman, for a
basket dinner on the second day.
