shooting that is attributed to
Jesse Mullinix, 40, now in the
county jail under a charge of
assault with intent to kill.
Knowledge that Mrs. .Steiger
would be the sole heir to a large
estate her husband would leave
in case of death, and that if he
successfully wooed her he
would get it, is another theory
that was being worked upon to
day by Prosecuting Attorney
Max Gehlhar,
Mullnix was formally charged with
the crime last evening: He probably
will be arraigned In court late this aft
ernoon, Mr. Gehlhar said. The arraign
ment has been delayed, it was stated,
to enable deputies from the sheriff's
office to gather further evidence on
the case.
Steiger Sonfesses.
Reluctantly Mr. Steiger, who Is con
fined at the Salem hospital, -told Mr.
Gehlhar and Sheriff Needharh yester
day afternoon that he did quarrel with
Mullhilx while he was'employed on his
farm in August, 1918, and that he or
dered him from the premises after
Mullinix had paid undue attention to
Mrs. Steiger. Steiger admitted that he
did not believe that Mullinix would re
turn after this long elapse of time to
get revenge thought to have been
sought when they disagreed on how
horses on the farm should be cared
Investigation made by Deputies
Bower and Smith on the Steiger farm
yesterday resulted in the finding of five
empty pistol cartridges, from which,
authorities aver, the bullets which en
tered Steiger's body came. They were
found lying together about ten paces
from where the shooting occurred.
Shot' nt Barn Door.
It developed today that the shooting
did not occur in -the barnyard wnue
' Mr. Steiger was en route to the house,
but that It occurred at the entrance of
the bam.
It is the belief of Prosecuting Attor
ney Gehlhar that whoever commltteed
the crime had intimate knowledge of
Mr. Steiger's habits. For, according to
Steiger's story as told yesterday at the
hospital, his assailant reached through
the door, that was apar not more than
a foot and a half, and fired Just as he
:rame through with the milk buckets.
Steiger said that he struck at the man
with his lantern, then grappled with
him. When his strength ebbed the
fellow broke away and ran. He is be
lieved to have emptied the shells from
the revolver as he ran, and thrown the
weapon into a moat nearby. Authori
ties have thus far been unable to find
the revolver.
Neighbors Silent.
Although declining to discus uie
matter with officials, neighbors near
the Steiger farm persist In stories that
Mullinix had made clandestine visits
to the Steiger home recently and that
they saw htm with Mrs. Steiger. They
y there can be no doubt that Mul
linix and Mrs. Steiger enjoyed Intimate
Prosecuting Attorney Gehlhar re
tailed today that about two years ago
"e was on the point of filing a charge
t perjury against Mullinix when he
testified in a criminal case in one of
the local courts. He claims that the
Prisoner, who testified as a witness ?n
the case at that time, made misrepre
sentations of time in an attempt to es
tsW'fh an alibi for a friend. For this
reason, Mr. Gehlhar said today, he Is
'"dined to disbelieve Mullinlx's state
ment that he was playing pool In a
"'"lard hall down town here when the
wwtlng occurred at 8 o'clock.
,'t was reported from the Salem hos
pital at noon that Mr. Steiger's condi

Paris. March 27. Great quantities

many by the allied officers charged
with supervising execution of the
peace treaty, according to advices re
ceived here. In Brandenburg and in
the immediate vicinity of Berlin alone
3,500 three-Inch field guns were found.
This discovery by the allied officers,
together with other information In
possesison of the French authorities, is
considered by French officials to in
dicate that Germany Is endeavoring
to avoid executing the terms of the
The discovery Is commented upon In
connection with reports that-a repub

region. The French, It Is Indicated, are
inclined to believe that occupation of
the Ruhr district by German trobps
or the alleged separate government
would have as an ultimata effect, if
not as a direct object, delay or evasion
in executing the treaty terms.
Particular significance is attached
here to the discovery of so many field
guns in a small part of German tn
view of the fact that the Germans, re
plying to the demands of the commis
sion of control to which Germany's
excess war material and munitions
should have been delivered March 10,

Falkenstein. Saxony, Mar. 25.
Workers have taken control in towns
and cities of Lower Saxony, but there

many a few days ago but these rumors
are declared untrue. The burgomas
ter f'.ed when the upheaval came and
workers have since been co-operating
with the other town officials.
One hundred workers under the di
rection of Hoelze entered Plauen Sun
day night and kidnaped City Attorney
Hubert and held htm until he gave up
data he had gathered for the prosecu
