Corvallls, Or.. June 6. In the opin
ion of the- coroner's Jury, Mrs. Eliza
Griffith, whose body was found in Rock
creek near Philomath Saturday morn
ing, met death through strangling by
parties unknown. The Jury, In session
In this city all day yesterday viewed
the, body as dissected by a local sur
geon and heard the evidence of a dozen
witnesses, relying largely on the evi
dence Of Dr. Newth of Philomath, who
examined the body shortly after It was
taken from the water.
Dr. Newth gave It as his opinion that
the bruises on the back of each wrist.
; at the aides and back of the neck and
beneath the ear lobes were caused by
a rope, ' probably by the rope picked
up from the bank of the stream near
the spot at which the body was found.

In the vicinity of Mrs. CJrlfflth's home
tended to show that the woman had be
