A. ; Bell, deputy sheriff, left Los An freles late today, taking with him ' documents signed by women con fessions that may lead to the mur- derer of Guy N. Dernier, former Chi ,(. cagoan, Dernier, once manager of the ship ping department of Montgomery Ward & Co., was found strangled and floating in an irrigation canal I near Phoenix. Ariz., September 12. ? Investigation showed that 22 ' prominent and wealthy women had ' been intimate with him, that some " or them had given him money, and " that there were many other women involved in his affairs. One was a 'r 16-year-old housemaid. Nome Hunband Suspected. ' Deputy Sheriff Bell obtained state : menta from nine of the 22 women 21 of whom are wives. He had to threaten some with prosecution, it , is said. Others were eager to talk. " "I can't say yet, of course, what these women have told .me," Bell declared before the train pulled out, . "but they have given me a lot of help. There's a bootlegger in this thing, too, and while he may have killed Dernier, w'e are inclined to 5 think that one of the 21) husbands i ' did the job. We are almost certain 5 of it. Bootlegger I Cheated. "Dernier had cheated this boot legger out of $1300. We have not talked to the bootlegger yet. We've : been too busy checking up on the ; women. "The dead man kept three 'dope i hooks.' In them he put down the ' names and addresses of his women t' friends But he was cautious. He I once told a friend that nobody but himself could make out his en 2 tries. It has given us a good many f hours' study, this cautiousness of ' his, but we've got a lot of evidence out of it. ! "For instance, some of these worn i en I talked to yesterday and today ! were listed only as addresses. It I required work to find out their ' names, and get their stories. Some t of them wept. Some of them ; laughed. One of . them, the only one of the 22 rich women who is not i married, was frightened only when I told her that Dernier was damaged goods. Women's Names Listed "Some of the women were listed 1 under street names. Like-this- Oeorge Adams, 1817 Lillian street. I The names are fictitious, of course, s and just by way of illustration. We i would find that by this was meant Lillian Adams. 1817 George street "In other cases he wrote out i names and addresses, color of hair and eyes and other details, and such r- notations as 'Call nights,' 'Husband ' works days.' "He was a respectable business man up to 14 months ago, living a decent, clean life, so far as any- body knew, anra everybody liked " him. Then they started the New t Phoenix Country club and made him , secretary. They gave him a share i.f stock for little or nothing. And his character began to change. ; "There seems to have been plenty " to drink at the club and Dernier 1 was thrown with drinking women. He took to drinking heavily him v self, to going around with other men's wives, and to borrowing : money from them. I Fund Declared Kept. I "Had he lived he would have been indicted by the federal government, 1 charged with fraud. The federal 1 people say that Dernier learned ij what refunds were due to various persons and that he got these re ; funds and kept them, posing as an income tax expert. "He did not confine himself either, by the way, to the wives of club home here Sundav night,-' was years old and a well-known Oregon educator, having for 20 years oper ated the Capital Normal school of Salem. He was. born near Newcas tle. Morgan county. Ohio. He en listed in the 77th Ohio volunteers at the age of 16, was wounded and captured at Marks Mills.

Interment was at the Tahomar cemetery at Yakima. SACRIFICE MM TP ACT ALICE HILLS PLAYS "HOME LIEST HJEROIXE" PART. Katiska, in "Take It From 3Ie at Heilig, Held Obstacle of Ugliness to Be Hurdled. Alice Hills, who is the life and joy of the party in "Take It From Me" at the- Heiligr, is much of the same opinion as the prima donnas who have played Katish-a. "She is to my way of thinking the homeli est heroine in opera or drama and yet I have never known a real members. We know that h& was in- , timate with lots of others, house maids, a little 16-year-old girl. ..working- in the home of one of the 22 wealthy women, was his victim also. Her parents knew nothing- of It. either, until the sheriff's office notified them. "1 don't wonder he was killed 2iirtd out there some nine miles from Phoenix, choked from behind, stripped of his clothes, flung into yie ditch. It happened between noon and 1 o'clock. And apparently nobody saw it. e have mtorma tlon. however, that Dernier had re -reived a messajre from a woman i short time before he was slain, also that he had called up a woman. There is no doubt the trap was baited with a woman." li p II vm s ROOSEVELT STATUE S WANTED III EAST Permission to Copy Local Memorial Asked.

Alice Hill. plHyiixe n "'lake It From Mo' at the HeiliR. artist who hesitated to play the role of vatisha simply because she had to be made up uprly. A real and abiding love for one's art will hurdle an obstacle of that sort. Handsome women sing-ers so on blacken insr their teeth, screwing their hair into tight knots, and making- themselves into Katishas and all for art's sake. So when the role of Klla Abbott, homely spinster, fell to my lot five years ago and I've been playing- it steadily for five years, let me add in parenthesis I put my vanity in the discard. My own hair I wear bobbed for conven ience and it's naturally curly, and I have lots of it. But I screw it all under a wispy, tight, ratty wig. I make-lines on my face where Nature has not yet made any and I shoe horn myself into a costume that is fearful and wonderful. I repeat it's all for art's sake." iliss Hills is a land owner. Just an hour's ride out from New York she owns a farm of 100 acres. mo3t of it under cultivation. "The rest woods, great lovely trees and hilis. My aim is to make my farm retreat for women and girls who are in need of rest- I plan to make it a friendly place, a haven where my friends in the profession may I come when they are tired in mind j or body. My mother, who is the t of my family besides myself, shares my vision and is a great in spiration to me." Miss Hills is familiar with Port land and has friends in California, oo. She played stock engagements a few seasons ago along- this coast. It is highly appropriate that at the end of the Theodore Roosevelt In ternational highway, in our own fair city, there should be a fine new statue of the "Rough Rider" leader, far whom this highway is also a memorial, in the opinion of A. W. Tracy, general secretary of the as sociation helping establish and ad vertise this transcontinental thor oughfare. According to Mr. Traey, who arrived in Portland yesterday, several other statues of the late Colonel Roosevelt are already con templated at different points along this Portland, Me., to Portland, Or., highway. Portland. Me., Busy. Agitation of the matter of such a statue has been started in Portland, Me. The city of Minot, N. D., has asked permission of Dr. H. W. Coe donor of the Roosevelt statue to be dedicated here on October 27, t erect an approximate copy of th Proctor statue at the entrance to it Roosevelt park. Now that the Roosevelt highway is fully mapped and almost com pletely marked throughout the 401 miles of its lengtn, said secretary Tracy, the Roosevelt Internationa Highway association is ready to launch a campaign of publicity. The northwest is sure to profit greatly through the advertising given the highway and through the establish ment of many new highway infor mation bureaus. Of these there are at present 15, chiefly in eastei n cities. Park Road Barrier. The roadway through the Glacier National park has been a barrier link jn the Roosevelt highway, Sec retary Tracy stated. While the route through the park will not be ready for use for another year an excellent detour that runs over into Canada has been put in shape. With this accomplished, the association will begin its drive to have those traveling on the highway come west of the Rockies. At present, accord ing to Mr. Tracy, only a little more than 25 per cent of eastern tourists come west of the Rockies, merely- visiting the national parks and then turning Jnto Colorado and homeward again. Secretary Tracy will today hold conference with officials of the Ore gon division of his association. Fred W. Vogler is president of the Oregon division f the Theodore Roosevelt International Highway associatior and Sydney P. Vincent is secretary. J. P. Jaeger, H. J. Ottenheimer and John K. Gratke are directors. Plans for publfcity will be discussed, along with other problems, such as mem bership and information bureaus. 14 State in Plan. Eaoh of the 14 northern states the highway traverses has similar or ganizations and, according to Secre tary Tracy, all are enthusiastically working to influence completion of improvement of the thoroughfare. Approximately $6,000,000 wag spent in improving it during 1921 and ex penditures will probably equal that sum again this year. The highway is now marked from Portland, Me to Dayton, Wash. Eighty-two per cent of its length is Improved though the greater part of this is merely graveled or macadamized as yet. Travel over this route has In creased more than 25 per: cent in both 1921 and 1922, surveys have shown. another ship near San Pedro, Cal., and is now on the drydock. The statue was not damaged in the col lision and has been transferred to the Ohioan. Because of the size of the statue it will be Impossible to unload it at terminal No. 5, and arrangements have been made to unload it at the municipal terminal on the west side of the river. The base for the statue is also en route to Portland and should be here next week. This base is the largest piece of granite ever worked out on the Pacific coast and has been hewn and made ready by the Blaesing Granite company of this city, at qarries in Raymond. Cal.
