Final, selection of the Jury, and
the introduction of expert medical
testimony, marked the sessions to
day on the manslaughter trial of
Roscoe C. (Fatty) Arbuckle in
connection with the death of Vir
ginia Rappe. Five jurors are wo
men. Interest In the trial in
creased with the conclusion of the
Jurry questioning and the court
room was crowded for the first
time In three days. An alternate
Juror was selected at the direction
of the court. . . '
Doctors ShelbyP. Strange, act
ing clfy autopsy surgeon, and Wil
liam Ophuls, who conducted both
external and internal examina
tions of Miss Rappe's body, were
the first witnesses. They describ
ed the bladder rupture which
caused Miss, Rappe's1 death.- The
prosecution accuses Arbuckle of
causing this Injury through the
application of external force.

A half hour argument was built
around a defense question to Dr.
. Ophuls to whether Miss Rappe's
fatal Injury might have been
caused bp sudden immersion in a
tub of cold water. The question,
amended several times, was al
lowed and the doctor said that
such an Injury was possible from
such a cause. He also admitted
the injury was possible from other
causes.' .";' :. v ;

Pomerene, Ohio Democrat,
Says He Would Resign if
Similar Evidence Were
Against Him.
Charge is Made That Spen
cer's Committee Has
j Blocked Testimony
Declaration by Senator Pomerene
Democrat, Ohio, that he would re
sign if evidence such as that sub
mitted against Senator Newberry
werb adduced against him, marked
further consideration by the sen
ate itoday of Henry Ford's contest
of Mr. Newberry's seat as senator
from Michigan.
Asked by Senator Walsh, Dem
ocrat, Montana, what his action
would be if he had violated no
laws, the Ohio senator replied:
"at I were innocent, I'd fight
the: battle of my life for my
rights; I would not remain silent.'
s mocking CnargeU
Mr. Pomerene charged that ma
Jorlty members of the senate elec
tions committee, presided over by
Senator Spencer, Republican, Mis
souri, had blocked all efforts to
gather pertinent testimony in its
investigation of the case. He as
serted that if the committee had
wished to be fair it would have
subpoenaed Mr. Newberry and
als$ would have attempted to get
facts about the Newberry funds in
the campaign by calling officials
of banks which had Newberry ac
counts. .
r Fear Is Denied
Mr. Spencer denied that Mr
Newberry was afraid to appear be
fore the committee or that the
committee feared to call the sen a
tor; because his testimony might
huft his case. . On the contrary
Mr Spencer argued, Mr. New
berry, as well as most of the Re
publican members of the commit
tee, regarded the Michigan sen a
torf presence as unnecessary.
Mr. Pomerene again assailed
thd camDaicn expenditures, as
seating that Mr. fJewberry knew
all! about them and that the sena
tor; was responsible for the acts
of jhis agents.
s McNary Threatened
That Senator Charles L. McNary
was indued in the list of senators
who received threatening letters
from Henry Ford incident to tho
Newberry case became known yes
terday In Washington. If the Ore
goji senator votes to seat Senator
Neiwberry, Ford has declared he
would exert his . influence to op
pose McNary'a re-election.
Although Senator McNary has
issued no statement indicative of
his stand, it is understood that
Senator Curtis is relying upon his
vote to oppose Newberry. The
Ford letters. It is said, have been
received by several senators of the
progressive type, most of whom
will come up for re-election with-
n Jthe next two years.

DENVER, Colo., Nov. 18. De
crease in the number of strikers y
Huerfano and Lasanimas counties
and a sympathetic strike in the
Canon City district, were reported
by the Colorado Fuel & Iron com
pany as the principal develop
ments in the Becond day of the
strike against reduction of wages
in 13 of its coal mines.
While the total number of idle
miners is larger than yesterday.
the company's statement said that
this was due to the sympathetic
strike in Canon City and that con
ditions were better today in the
other two districts.
Approximately 180 state rang
ers are on-duty in Huerfano coun
ty, acting under a second martial
law proclaimed today. The new
proclamation was made necessary,
it was said, by provisions of tho
state constitution that troops must
be in the field before such a proc
lamation can be effective.
Adjutant General Hamrock is
in charge at Walsenburg and to
night the situation was reported
as quiet, with no disturbances of
any kind. Tho striking miners
were to hold a meeting at Wal
senburg tonight.

Most Important Deposition
So Far in Trial Furnished
By C. R. Arundell, Feder
al Investigator.
Check for $500 Given by E.
C. Miller Plys Import
ant Part in Case
PORTLAND, Nov. 18. Most
important testimony against John
W. Todd, being tried in federal
court on the charge of fraudulent
use of the mails, was that of C.
Roger Arundell, special federal
attorney, whose investigatory visit
to Salem has been referred to i
countless times by witness after
Arundell testified that Todd
told him he had never received i
anything, -and never ejected to
receive anything, for all his ef
forts in inducing a long list of
Salem people to turn over $500
each to Carlos L. Byron, alleged
timber locator, as partial pay
ments for timber claims..
"Todd said that it was his
friendship for Byron, a thin? of
long standing, that induced him
to his activity," Arundell testi
fied. Todd burned all unexecuted con
tracts of Byron's on the day be
fore, Arundell said Todd told him.
There was no correspondence of
any kind between-himself and By
ron, Todd said, because all their
communications had been by tel
ephone. Tried to Podge Mails
"I would prefer this check on
fthe Lexinston bank would not go
throuKh the mails. Would you
mind making out your check on
a Salem bauk?"
This was the rather unusual
request which Todd made to E.
C. Miller, after Miller had given
him a check of $500 as initial
payment on an alleged valuable
timber tract to be located for
him by Carlos L. Byron, jointly
indicted with Todd, but now a
fugitive from justice. '
Miller with entire trust in Todd
as one of the most representa
tive men of Salem, testified yes
terday that he obligingly drew
sufficient money from his Lexing
ton account to cover the $500
payment. This was then trans
ferred to the Salem bank. The
check was never cashed because
Miller requested its return when
he became uneasy as to Byron's
Portland conviction and sentence
to Jhe federal prison at McNeil
Immediately following this
damaging testimony, Charles W.
Robinson, moved that the entire
inatter be struck from the re
cord because the check had never
been cashed.

Woolley, Wash., former master of the Washington State

called secession Washington Grange and J. C. Wrage, and R.
A. Briggs, executive committeemen of the same body, were
expelled from the national Grange at its convention today,
and forever barred from re-entering the order.
"The vote to expel the Washington men was taken in ex

The action was precipitated unexpectedly by the submission
of a report of the executive committee, recommending it, and
the vote to adjpt the committee report was unanimous with
every delegate in his seat.
The action brought to a dramatic close trouble which had
been brewing for more than a year in the Washington State
