George C. Schall, About to Retire
From Army, Now Must Answer
to Accusation as Slaver.
Tearfully denying any knowledge of
the killing of his wife and three sons
at the Presidio at San Francisco last
April, George C. Schall yesterday sub
mitted to arrest by Deputy United
States Marshal Talley and is now in
a cell In the Multnomah County JaiL
He is charged in a San Francisco in
dictment with the murder of his fam
ily, the members of which were found
in a burning house, with their beads
cut open.
Schall for many years has been hos
pital steward at the Government mili
tary reservation. He declared in th
marshal's office yesterday on arrival
from Vancouver, Wash., where he was
located, that he arrived on the scene
of the fire to find his home so nearly
destroyed that any action on his part
was Impossible. He said he was first
informed that his wife and children
ad escaped and later that they were
still in the ruins- He said he had
passed many weeks In the hospital suf
fering from nervous shock. He did not
explain why he suddenly left the Pre
sidio after leaving the hospital.
Schall will be taken back to San
Francisco by a deputy from the Port
land office probably some time this
His arrest was made by a deputy
United States marshal and John csecrlst,
chief of police of Vancouver. Schall
married a sister of the wife of George
B. Stoner, Councilman of the Vancouver
City Council, and part owner of a bar
ber shop there. Mr. Stoner had never
seen his brother-in-law, Schall. until
he arrived a few, weeks ago and se
cured a position In a local drug store
as a pharmacist. Schall was steward
of the Government hospital and is due
to retire after SO years' service. In
August. He secured a four months'
leave of absence to be retired at the
end of that time.
Mr. Stoner took Schall into his own
home when he reached Vancouver, and
that night he had a long talk with
him. He said that Schall got badly
tangled in his stories about the death
of his family. The wife and children
of Schall were- insured and Schall col
lected 1403 on their policies. Mr. Stoner
said Schall did not even attend the
funeral of his family, feigning sick
ness, but that he found men there who
said he was playing cards the follow
ing day.
Mrs. Stoner accused Schall openly of
having killed her sister and ordered
him from her home, as she could not
bear to see him. After talking over
the matter for some time, and holding
many conversations with him. Stoner
finally decided to go to San Francisco
and demand a grand jury investigation.
He made an affidavit there and it was
on his request that the Investigation
began, and has resulted in Schall s arrest-
Mrs. Stoner said that she be
lieved that as her sister had become
paralyzed and that as she was a bur
den to him. and he was so soon to re
tire, he took this rash method of get
ting rid of her.
