Three men are under arrest as suspects this afternoon and sleuths are hounding down others that might be implicated. The murder was one of the most atrocious ever recorded in the police history of thla city. Tie head was split open with an axe, which Is now in the hands of the police, and other bruises indicate that after the bit of the axe had been used with dead ly effect, the blunt side of the weapon had been applied at various times. The face was lacerated last summer when In a fight with some tramps, Fltzger-i aid suffered the loss of most of his nose. '"'. ; j The body' is now in the ,, morgue awaiting an inquest which has been set for 9 o'clock tomorrow. i j : Shortly after noon,' working on ' ,' scraps of evidence and clews hurrled- f ) ly gathered. Chief of Police Walden and his colleagues arrested three men and one of these three known as Scotty" wore clothing that was blood soaked and other evidence In the hands of the police leads to the belief that at least three, if there were more implicated in the ghastly act, are now arrested and In the county Jail. There seems to be a questlnon as to the identity of one of the trio, but one is called Scotty, arid one's name is Fred Blomquist. The latter is said to be well known, in fact, all have made their habilate here from time to time. Letters found In the pockets of the third man are addressed to Fred "W. Llmpke, yet other correspondence In dicates his name might be Frace Zales. Coroner Bacon who has the matter under consideration, remembers one of the. men as a transient who split some wood at the Bacon residence and was 'rewarded for his efforts with the do nation of a coat. This particular coat ? Is blood spattered. i The scene at the burned down shack Indicates that it was a drunken carou sal, terminating In the tragedy noted. Last night Fitzgerald -was led from a saloon in East La Grande by two men who have been identified as being a duo of the trio now under arrest. There is every reason to believe that the crowd got into' a., fight and that Fitzgerald was master over the entire crowd for during his stay here he has acquired the reputation of being ab normally gifted with rough and tumble fighting propensities. The supposition SHIELD ATTACK HUMORS CHARACTER OF MISS CHAMBER . LA1X IS ATTACKED. Tliroe of the Men Who Tarred and Feathered1 Her Assert Charges. is that, angered, the men whom Fitz gerald had beaten, went to a neighbor ing residence and stole an axe with which, to return and split the skull of the man who beat them. Evidence that will bear out the theory that some time was spent there was found and will be told at the coroner's in quest tomorrow. ' AH of the men arrested under sus picion are more or less well knowu. They have been, employed about the city at various times, getting work S3 a thrifty tramp will, wherever occa sion presents Itself.. Because of the facts known to exist and related with the crime there is no question but that the murder was done some time late last night. It was noon today before a pedestrian in that sec tion today found the body and had the fact communicated to the police by telephone. . . . School children gathered at the tim.; the police arrived and many of them witnessed the gory sight as the cleaven head dangled from the lifeless body as an ambulance carted the big hulk to the morgue. Fitzgerald has long 'been known to the police as a bad character. At the liuie ii Du 'traJIj '7.'!t' " ,T?-T last summer he safd he knew who had assaulted him but refused to disclose names. Dr. Bacon dressed him at'that time, and readily recognized the fea tures that had not been chopped up, when the corpse was brought to the morgue this noon. In addition to the evidence already held against the suspects,' Jt Is -said this afternoon that they admit having baen with Fitzgerald last evening. That there are others who may be part of the crowd responsible for the affair is attested to by evidence of neighbors who saw men hurrying to ORG LIR ,0PII!lililATE0 DEACHEO: SAFEi 10 CI SEE (Continued on Page b.J 1TFXTK AUXILIARY PLANT' TO HELP SE- ATTLE.

Stevens who believed the allegations against the unions are well founded. v Olcott said he could lay his opinion aside. The Judge, also refused to en tertain a challenge against F. A. Brode because his personal attorney is con nected with- the prosecution. The de cisions were decidedly disappointing to the defense. Darrow protested thac they were unfair and was rebuked. This will hasten the trial materially. Despite1 'the. rebuke Darrow Insisted on his" allegations that. the. court was discriminating against the defense and perfected a record so grounds for an appeal might be specifically evident. Tension In the case 'was marked today and the dull monotony of examining the talesmen frequently enlightened by clashes between coun sel and occasionally the court. Darrow was interrogating F. A. Brode, ; a business man, had asked him one of a thousand leading ques tions with which the record is filled, when Deputy District Attorney Hor- ton objected and was sustained. Dar row was angry and took, an exception. "When the other side wants to dis qualify a Juror the court permits them to ask leading questions for a half day," he began. "The remark is decidedly improp er," said the court. "It is fair. The record discloses It, Nevertheless I want a specific rul ing on this point," retorted Darrow. Bordwell ruled that .certain ques tlons might be proper in the case of one Juror and wouldn't be proper in the case of another. . j '' Plainly amazed, Darrow promptly declared he had never before heard such ruling and fireworks enlivened the rest of the morning session.
