Oct. 10. (Special.) ---THe juFy'Iir The 'trial of Phillip Warren, Indian, accused of the murder of John Price and Grover Todd, federal prohibition enforce ment officers, at the town of new Grand Ronde, was completed and sworn in Just before'Judge Harry H. Belt adjourned circuit court for ,the noon recess here today. Four times during the morning a jury had been temporarily filled, only to again fall short of the re quired number of twelve talismen when one or more of those already seated were removed by premptory challenges. In all the defense, ex ercised four premptory challenges and the prosecution one. The jury in whose hands lies the fate of Warren are: Henry McEl murry, Independence; J. W. Chil ders, Salem route 1; G. F. Brown, Dallas; Gus Lake, Salem route 1; Harvet Gage, Dallas; W. H. Gor shine, Salem route 1; A. V. Oliver, Rickreall; W. L,. Murphy, Beuna Vista; B. I. Ferguson, Eola; T. J. Gardner, West Salem; J. P. Hamil ton, Rickreall; and J. E. Mason, Dallas. Both Satisfied. As the noon recess was neared j it appeared that the opposing at torneys were still far from satis fied with the personnel 'of the jury, and it looked as though the jury selection process would last through the entire day. The three special venires totaling 100 jury men drawn for the case had been nearly exhausted and Judge Belt had instructed Sheriff John Orr to prepare 'summons for a fourth ve nire of 20 men, when the state an nounced it was satisfied with the jury as constituted and filled by the acceptance of Mr. Mason hs the twelfth juror, and the defense declared it wished to make no fur ther challenges. Twenty-three prospective jury men were examined this morning nine being excused for conscienti ous objections to imposing the death penalty and four because of opinions already formed regarding the case. Case of Defense. Throughout the examination of witnesses Oscar Hayter, attorney for the defense, has indicated that the defense is built its case around the fact that stoolp'igeons, traps and other unlawful means were used by the prohibition officers in enforcing the law in the Grand Ronde neighborhood, and that the crime with whicft warren is charged was the direct result of these unlawful practices of the of ficers. Warren sat unmoved throughout the progress of the case this morn ing, seldom even speaking to his attorney and scarcely cnanging his expression. Only when his wife and two little children, one of them a babe in arms, entered the court room and took seats be side bis father outside the rail im mediately behind him, did he pay any attention to anything other than the examination of the jur ors.

Scandal Mongers i Break Engagement Of Coca Cola King Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 10. (By As sociated Press. ) Mrs. Onezima DeBouchel of New Orleans, whose engagement to marry Asa G. Candler Sr., Atlanta capitalist, was announced some weeks ago, made public here today a state ment asserting that Mr. Candler broke the engagement because of a report brought to him reflecting upon her character. Mrs. DeBouchel said Mr. Cand ler had refused and was still re fusing to furnish the names of th persons he said accused her. She issued Tier statement following a final conference between her and Mr. Candler. "Mr. Candler ' was very much broken up," Mrs. DeBouchel said. "I'm sorry for him. He told me he still loves me and wants to marry me, and that he does not believe this hideous slander which hap been taken to him and he refused to give me the name of the man or men who accused me. I cannot understand his attitude. He told me he was wretched and unhappy and did not care whether he lived or died. s "He said he would prefer for me to go home and wait a while and announce the breaking of thti engagement and give as my rea son anything detrimental "to his character that I might see fit. Of course I would not do such a thing for I know nothing against his character, although I insist that hhe owes ti to me to give me the names of those who accuse me." Mrs. DeBouchel said her lawyer, Harry Gamble of New Orleans, would arrive tomorrow night. She said she would probably be here "for some time." She declinea to state what action she would insti tute, if any, to force a disclosure of the identity of those she said had accused her. "I have always known that the Candlers opposed my marriage to Mr. Candler and he will not deny that twice after our engagement, long after, I offered to release him," Mrs. DeBouchel declared "He vehemently refused and cried that I was cruel to suggest it Who ia cruel now? "It was never necessary on that count to put this foul dishonor on me. But they have blundered This clumsy conspiracy fixes the time so fortunately for me that I can prove my innocence against all the - perjurers and assassins they t'un bring." , IE TO USE BONUS III AS DESIRED Supreme Court Holds That Ex-Service Men Can Spend Loan Se cured as They Want.

OF SCHOOLS E A resolution proposing that the Salem Commercial club in the future stage a campaign for the betterment of local school condi tions was adopted at a meeting of the board last night. Better bulidings will be advocated and an attempt to secure better equipment and more space will be made. The board, it was pointed out, realizes that the Salem school board has but little money with which to work. It was felt that an educational campaign must be carried on in the hope of show ing the voters what conditions are. A plan to erect a $210,000 apartment house at the corner of Court and Capitol streets, sub mitted by Warren Armington, of Denver, was endorsed last night. The building, according to the plans, would be of four stories and a basement and its dimen sions would be 100 feet by 110 feet. Each of the proposed 72 apartments are to have, accord ing to tie plans, disappearing beds and an electric stove. Mr. Armington is at present seeking financial support In Salem. Today he said he hopes to have the building underway within 15 days. It is understood that Mr. Armington expects to in vest la the Duuaing. Money secured by ex-service men through a loan from the state bonus fund may be used in any manner the borrower may choose to use it, according to an opinion written by Justice Rand and handed down by the supreme court this morning in which it is pointed out that the constitu tional amendment creating the state bonus fund does not author ise the state bonus commission to limit the use of bonus loans the purchase of a farm or home The -opinion is based upon the appeal of Frank W. Moore from the judgment of Judge Percy R. Kelly of the Marion county cir cuit court in a case involving thj right of the bonus commission to reject an application for a loan upon the ground that the appli cant will use the money borrowed for purposes other than to acquire a farm or a home. The lowei court had upheld the commission in its ruling rejecting Moore's application. Pamphlet Not Considered Arguments contained in the of ficial voters' pamphlet in the in terest of the bonus amendment to the effect that the bonus loan was designed to build up the state by assisting ex-service men In the purchase of farms and homes were not supported by the language-of the bonus amendment Itself which, the opinion declares. is clear and free from ambi guity." It is possible, and perhaps probable, that this argument, appearing at that time in the voters' pamphlet may have in duced many persons to vote for its adoption who otherwise would have voted for its rejection, but this affords no sufficient reason why the plain provisions of the amendment, that are entirely free from ambiguity or doubt, should be construed differently from tho way they would have Sheriff Seizes Auto cf Mrs. Brumfield's for Relatives' Claim Roseburg, Ore., Oct. 10. Sheriff Sam Starmer was today holding the automobile in which Mrs. R. M. Brumfleld and Miss Vernita Ellensburg arrived here yesterday, the machine being attached on a claim filed by a relative of the Brumfield family, who alleged that $1,000 had been loaned for the defense of Dr. Brum field, who recently ended his life In the state prison while awaiting execution for the murder of Dennis Russell. 83S8 by A llies CONCESSIONS TO TURKS AT 1 END NOW DOUBT STORY OE YOUTH IN MILLS' CASE Allies Await Action by Angora Government Upon- Armistice Con tention; Ready for War Boy Accused of Killing By Companion Hotly Denies Charges Ac cuser Weak Minded.

J., Oct. 10 Nineteen-year-old Clifford Hayes of New Brunswick today pleaded not guilty of having murdered the Rev. Edward Wheeler Hall and Mrs. Eleanor Reinhardt Mills and was held by Justice of the Teace Sutphen without ball for grand jury action. Authorities, who announced with a show of confidence upon Hayes arrest yesterday, that the Hall -Mills' mystery had been solved, evidenced less satisfaction with their case today. One of the investigators said another lead was being worked upon, which if verified would change the entire complexion of the case." New Motive Indicated. This lead, he added, Vpointed away from Young Hayes and ap peared to provide a motive that would explain the mad slashing of Mrs. Mills throat in addition to her bullet wounds. Raymond Schneider, upon whose accusation Hayes was arrested still was held today as a material witness and was being questioned from time to time in an effort to clear up discrepancies in his story. Schneider said Hayes had shot the minister and the choir singer, under the apple tree on the old Phillips farm, thinking the pair to be Pearl Bahmer, 15, and her step father, Nicholas Bahmer. Hayes denied the story. London, Oct. 10, (By Asso ciated Press) When the British cabinet council adjourned at 6:30 this evening, the government was still without news as to whether the Turkish nationalist authorities at Angora had ac cepted the armistice convention presented . by the allies at Mudania.

It now rests with Angora whether ma world shall have peace or war." "We have gone to the extremity in concessions," declared General Harington. "The revised armistice convention is a gratifying mani festation of allied solidarity in war or peace. It Is my earnest hope that the Turks will appre ciate the liberality of our terms. If they reject them, we are pre pared for all eventualities." London, Oct. 10. (By Associ ated Press.) The question .of peace in the Near East now rests with the Turkish nationalist as sembly at Angora, which has be fore it the armistice conditions laid down by the allied powers.
