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
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

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

Ministers Unite in Protest
Against Conditions Found
by Rev. 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-
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.
