SAN FRANCISCO, March 28. The first direct testi
mony linking Roscoe C. (Fatty) Arbuckle with the death of
Virginia Rappe was given late this afternoon in his trial for
manslaughter by Miss Virginia Briggs, secretary to Dr. Fran

Miss Rappe told her:
"Arbuckle took me by the arm and threw me on the bed
and put his weight on me and after I do not know what hap

the ?tate rested its case. The defense immediately began
the presentation of its evidence by calling Adolph Juel, head
of the police identification bureau, to the stand.
This is the
first time Miss
Briggs has appeared as a wit

her testimony the defense made

Miss Briggs explained that she
had gone into Miss Rappe's room
on the day of her death.
"She asked me about the
amount of the hospital bill that
would be due," said the witness.
"She said she didn't see why
she should pay the bill as Ar
buckle was responsible for her
being there, I told her that If
Arbuckle or anyone else should
pay the account after she left,
the money paid by her would bo

Population Increase Makes
Extension of Water Ser

The rapid growth of West. Sa
lem during the past year, has
made necessary the consideration
of a large extension in water ser
vice. The old reservoir, holding
22,000 gallons, and situated on
th-9 hill above the town, is said
to be too small for adequate ser
vice. A new concrete reservoir, to
hold at least 1000,000 gallons, is
proposed for this spring.
The water committee, consist
ing of ayor Bedford, W. P. Lewis
and Earl Patton, with Charles
Ruge, superintendent, is investi
gating the matter.
The population has considera
bly more than doubled since the
federal census was taken two
years ago. A number of houses
have been built during the winter
