pare a bill limiting the amount

PALLS CITY. Ore., Jan. 25.
Special.) A collection of rare
and valuable gold and silver coins,
valued at $6000, was taken from
the home ot Henry Wagner Sat
urday evening while Mr. Wagner,
who lives alone, was absent. Ac
cess to the . house was gained by
t forcing two doors, one secured
with a hasp and staples clinched
through the wood, the second

breaking the locks. The collec

worth, in actual coinage value,
approximately $2000. Many rare

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

Philadelphia 'Chiropractor
Says He Strangled Worn-
an After Argument
Itavkl Ii. MarsLall llrcaks Down
. Following Iug: Grilling by
Police; leclart! He
"Was Crazy" .
(Ry Associated Press. ) David L.
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
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
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.;

'In Salem .
Fred A. Williams, apparently. 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. The object
of the conference, to be. held in

Labor Commissioner Gram was
present at the meeting last night;
and explained the status of the
slate law. It Is probable that the
council 'will pass a law conforming
with the state law. Mr. Gram, ven
tured the prediction. that !tn :the
course of two or three years the
