Jury Found Mrs. Hatch Died a
Natural Death.
Today's Oregonian has the fol
lowing to say: The coroner's jury
impaneled at Forest Grove to in
nnirp into the death of Mrs. Anna
C. Hatch, who was found dead in
her home at that city last Satur
day morning, this afternoon re
turned findings to the effect that
death was caused by heart failure,
produced by natural causes. It
further found that death ensued be
tween the hours of 6 and 9 Friday
Today's was the fourth session of
the jury, and Deputy District At
torney H. T. Bagley did not further
question S. W. Fletcher, the
wealthy McCoy hopgrower, who
was a visitor at the Hatch residence
Thursday evening and left early
Friday morning. The substance of
Fletcher's first testimony was that
he arrived from McCoy Thursday
evening, and after having supper
with the woman retired at 10
o'clock, bidding the hostess good
night at the head of the stairs lead
ing to his sleeping apartment. He
claimed that be occupied the bed in
which the dead
body was fou nd
and that he slept alone. He swore
that be left the next morning at
the Hour of 6:25 and did not B-e

some of her property. He stated

On Monday Fletcher testified
that he had Blept with Mrs. Hatch,
contradicting his former story.
He stated that he left her Friday
morning after he had placed a cold,
towel on her forehead to soothe a
violent headache of , which she
complained. '
The stomach of the dead woman
was not analyzed, although there
was a post-mortem examination.
Dr. E. A. Bailey, of Hillsboro,
found 42 gall stones, ranging from
the size of a pea to the size of an
almond, in the gall bladder and a
general bad condition of the liver.
Her heart was also in a bad con
dition. The jury, after hearing the state
ment of the physician and the tes
timony of Fletcher, was convinced
that no crime had been committed,
attributing Fletcher's contradictory
statements as to his confusion at
the time and bis desire to shield
the name of the woman as much as
possible. Mr. Fletcher left for his
home at McCoy on this evening's
The theory of the state at first
was that there might have been
foul play and that Fletcher might
have been desirous of getting pos
session of letters written to the
woman which might have been
damaging in a breach of promise
action This theory was held be
cause Mrs. Hatch was reported to
have told an intimate friend that
Fletcher was to wed her. The evi
dence, however, did not tend to
bear out the supposition. Mrs.
Hatch was a church member in
good standing and generally re
