SON CHARGED WITH MURDER OF FAMILY After Dramatic Arrest Young Man Cooliy Adopts Tech nical Methods AUBURN, Cal., Nov. 13.—Adolph Web er has been placed under arrest charged with the murder of his parents, sister and younger brother last Thursday night, and with having set the family residence on fire afterward to conceal the crime. Weber took his arrest coolly, but was alive to what he considered to be his legal rights. The arrest took place imme diately after he left the witness stand, and after he had reluctantly answered the questions propounded to him by Coroner Shephard, the district attorney and sev eral of the jurymen. A warrant for his arrest had been sworn out, and after its service he asked to be allowed to read the document. "I see that it has been signed by a jus tice of the peace," Ke coolly remarked, "and a justice of the peace has no author ity in law to issue a warrant to arrest me." Sheriff Keenan said he was himself per fectly satisfied with the legality of the warrant and advised Weber to accompany him to the jail without making any un necessary trouble or causing a scene. Weberr~after carefully buttoning his coat, announced that he was ready, and with little loss of time the sheriff brought him to the jail. The prison doors had scarcely closed behind him before he ask ed to be allowed to consult with an at torney. Tried to Telephone The latest theory in the Weber murder case is that the murderer shot the father first; then, as the sister appeared in the hall he shot her. and then the mother, seeing: what had been done, screamed and started from him when he shot her. She continued on across the room, and raising her left hand, took down the telephone receiver to call for help, at which time she received the second shot, which peae trated the body Just under the left arm. The child, being the only one left, the murderer struck him over the head and felled him. The operator at the central telephone office says that the line that the Weber residence is on showed "busy" at about a half hour before the fire was dis covered. Adolph Weber in jail this morning, had nothing to say beyond that he had a good night's rest. No effort has been made as yet to get the young man out on a writ of habeas corpus. • Weber's description Is said to tally with that of the robber who recently robbed the bank here.

David Morgan Condemnation of public dance halls, and especially of the local dance halls that shocked Rev. David Morgan, pastor of the Bethel, during his personal Investi gations Saturday night, were expressed yesterday by pastors of prominent St. Paul churches. Mr. Morgan himself reiterated the state ment published yesterday of his discov eries; of dance halls that were respectable to all appearances, and of balls where he saw drunken men dancing with young girls between the visits of the couples to convenient saloons. "It was Just as I was reported to have described the situation," Mr., Morgan said, "and I suppose I can hardly say more. But I am not ready to tell what I In tend to do about It. "That will develop after a while," add ed the pastor of the Bethel, a bit mys- teriously. Rev. H. V. Givler, pastor of the First Methodist church, when told what Mr. Morgan had said of his observations at the dances listened attentively. Then Mr. Givler asked: "Brother Morgan said that, did he?" For reasons that he did not reveal Mr. Givler would add no comment upon the Bethel lid-lifting. But he did say,'with an accent of expectancy: "Well. I suppose Brother Morgan will tell us all about it at our preachers' meet ing tomorrow." Dr. John M, Fulton, pastor of the Cen tral Presbyterian ehtirch. suggested: '"If you are going to have such dances in a city, you should at least regulate them. I can't understand how they can be of sny real benefit to the men or women that attend them; but, if they can't be stopped, they should be shorn of such conditions as Mr. Morgan says he encountered at more than one place. "In addition to dances Saturday night," Dr. Fulton continued, "I notice that St. Paul has its theaters Sunday night. I have seen what Immense crowds of our young people are attracted by these the aters. Especially down on Seventh street I have watched the crowd of young men that pour out of the theater during the intermtssions. These young fellows go at once to some saloon, from the saloon back to the theater, and then to the sa loon again at the next intermission. It is not a pleasant sight. "I understand." Dr. Fulton said, "that St. Paul has lately been receiving a num ber of vicious people from Minneapolis.
