Marysville, Cal., Jan. 16. Dr. Carle ton H. Parker, representing both fed eral and state investigating commis sions at the trial of the accused Wheat land hop field rioters, before the court here on murder charges, was investi gating today the story of Henry D. Suhr, one of the prisoners, that private detectives tortured him into making a false confession. Following Judge McDanieJ's promise from the bench yesterday to call the law's wrath upon anyone responsible for such methods as Suhr charged, in the event that they were brought out in the trial and proved true, Parker and Suhr were closeted together for several hours last night, while the prisoner told his story to the investigator. Parker committed himself to no ex pression of belief today concerning the truth of the accusations, merely remark ing that, if established, thoy revealed a condition hardly, consistent with pres ent day ideas of justice toward accused men. Eight juron: had been accepted when court ofiened today. T Sheriff Each has returned the Marion county tax roll for the year 1912, bal anced up to and including October 6, 1913, with the delinquent taxes ex tended.

Sheriff Esch reports that all of the property upon which half taxes were not paid during the past annual period has been sold. The receipts amounting to about $500. That the business in the Marion count v sheriff's office has increased greatly during the post year is amply j attested to by the records kept in the department. In 1913 Sheriff Esch and his deputies handled 970 civil cases while in 1912 only 837 civil proceed ings were disposed of, or an increase of 139. The civil docket in the shoriff 's office declares that the business of his department is increasing every day. Especially so are these conditions ex isting in tho execution department. Execution sales have doubled In num ber since last fall, which goes to show that litigation in this county Is on the boom. The sheriff has dealt with 155 pris oners during the ra"t Vf8ri or an 'n crease of 15 over the number taken care of in 1912. Lawson, but the district attorney ad vised hlmlhnt he did not ""think" senti ment against such things strong enough in this country to secure a conviction.

The men gave their names as John G'bopsfind, Pete Mollish and Jack Si mon.
