Many rare ft pieces from foreign countries was included in the collection. J The robbers evidently knew just what they wanted and just where to find it as none of the other rooms were entered, the thieves going directly to the living room' at the front of the house, where the hinges, of heavy brass and the lock, on a heavy walnut chest made by Mr. Wagner was forced, and from this a tray was removed, set aside without open ing, and a case of walnut; wood, with plate glass top, sides and ends, also made by Mr. Wagner, Which contained the collection of 6f coin3. was lifted out.

Marshall, Philadelphia" chiroprac tor, lonight confessed that he had strangled Miss Anna May Dietrich to death before dismembering her body in his bffice last Tuesday night. Marshall said he had killed the woman after an argument which, he asserted, had followed an at tempt to extort money from him. He made his second confession to night in the office of District At torney Fox after being' under a severe grilling almost continu ously since 6 o'clock last night. Marshall broke down after an all night grilling at Media, Dela ware county, and gave authorities the apparently complete details of Miss Dietrich's death. . Earlier he had said that she had taken poison while he had stepped otu ef his office for something to cat. Finding her lying on the floor, face upward upon his return, he had tried every means to revive her and then had become panic stricken. He said he went home and upon reaching the office the next day, decided that he must dispose of the body. "I used a hack saw and a knife, to near the Rose Tree Inn where I left the body with her potse and all her clothes," Marshall said. "I must have been crasy. I was trying to protect my family." ; Marshall said he discovered that he had overlooked the head, which he wrapped up and disposed of the following night, hiding it un der a railroad trestle. In his con fession at Media before it was re peated and taken down by a sten ographer, Marshall said Miss Diet rich had been dejected over a love affair. She had mentioned to him a wealthy man named Nichols liv ing in New York; Miss Dietrich was 35 years old.. She had gone to parties and dances with different male .acquaintances and was not known jtohave any love affair. Friends! said today that she had decided to "step out and be a modern girl." . 1 Marshall said Miss Dietrich. had tried to obtain money from him under threats of exposing, his double life to his wife. He told how he had been out with her and later went to his suite of offices, where the quarrel started. His last confession, as given oat by the police, said she repeated her demands for money in the wom en's retiring room. Seizing her by the throat, he strangled her; he went on, until she dropped un conscious to the floor.; PLANES LOSE IN BLAZE NINE SHIPS AND TWELVE EN.

Is now city attorney for Salem with out dispute or question.. At the in formal meeting of the council last night he was present and Chris Kowits was not. j s First task, assigned to (Williams in a council meeting was the read ing of the newly drawn-up elec trical ordinance.; the Ordinance has to do with things electrical. To fuse or to. refuse seemed to be the" issue at stake- After disser tation by various electricians of the city upon the matter of fusing, the matter of hiring an electrical inspector to be paid from $150 to $175 a month, for the $lty was brought up. !.V' w This matter was the cause of the principal discussion of the evening. Electrical men of the city bad been invited to attend the meeting. There was-a. goodly, rep resentation of them there. The claim was made by several of the electrical men' that better work can be put out by them if there is an inspector. One of the greatest problems confronting the reliable dealer is the fly-by-night, or curb-stone electrician. He will come into the town, under bid the dealer, put out a poor job, and skip with the money. Local dealers would have an electrical inspector. They would have the ordinance read' that no juice could bej thrown Into a job before that job had been approved by the Inspector, The ordinance read by Williams provides for an inspector. But it provides that the inspecting shall be done1 by the sanitary and plumbing inspector. One electrical man ventured the assertion that an electrical inspec tor might make a passable plumb ing inspector, but a plumbing in spector would never do as an electrical inspector. . The discussion was finally end ed when the council passed a mo tion that the chair appoint a com mittee of threejcouncihuen to. eon rer with a 'committee ot- three electrical men and state labor commissioner Gram.
