W{

Dr. Chamberlain's arrest followed
the finding of his brother's body, dis-
membered into nine parts, buried in
post holes on his farm near Elk Hill.
The brother was last seen alive at his
own home four miles away on the
night of October 22. Dr. Chamberlain
has admitted to the authorities, it is
said, that he visited his brother that
night, but he has stoutly maintained
that he had nothing to do with the
killing.,
Say Quarrel Responsible
The prosecution wil try to prove by
witnesses that a quarrel over a debt
of $1,400 caused the killing. After the
finding of his brother's body and his
subsequent arrest, Dr. Chamberlain
said he had left his brother's home at 8
o'clock on the night Albert disappear-
ed. Louisa Beatwright, his negro
cook, testified at the coroner's inquest
that Dr. Chamberlain reached home
that night at 8:10 o'clock.
A negro mute, Alexander Knox; is
expected to be an important witness
for the prosecution. He will be ask-
ed to explain in the sign language the
circumstances under which he saw
Dr. Chamberlain coming home that
night. Knox can neither read nor
write.
Albert Chamberlain was supposed to
have been a man of some means, and
his strong box, believed to contain
valuable papers including about $50,-
000 in securities, was empty when
found. His gold watch is alleged to
have been found behind a rafter in
Dr. Chamberlain's home.
Formerly Successful Physician
Dr. Chamberlain formerly w a
successful physician in Iowa and the
Outhorities have declared that he was
about to take a train for the west
when he was arrested. His wife had
left Goochland on October 22, for
Kearney, Nebraska, only a few hours
before her brother-in-law was suppos-
ed to have been slain.
Discovery of the body was brought
about by the peculiar antics of a dog
which was seen pawing at post holes
on Dr. Chamberlain's farm. The torso
was found buried in the back yard.
The head, feet, legs, arms and heart
were uncovered in different post holes.
Owing to intense feeling aroused by
the brutality of the murder, Dr.
Chamberlain was taken to Henrico
county jail at Richmoud after his ar-
rest and was left there until today for
safe keeping.

Cadillac To Keep a Record of Aliens
Cadillac, Jan. 2.-Records of "un-
desirable" aliens living in this city,

gathered by secret service agents,
are being filed away by local immi-
gration officials for future reference.
It is said several hundred of these
aliens will be deported at the close
of the war. A large portion of the
list is made up of Teutons whose pub-
lic utterances attracted attention and
led to inyestigations that showed
them to be more loyal to the Father-
land than to their adopted country.

PICTURES ISSUED BY DEPART.
MENT OF AGGRICUL.
TURE
Pig clubs, which are being organ-
ized in all parts of the country in co-
operation with state agricultural col-
leges, will be the subject of a film
which has ju'st been released to the
motion picture theaters.
This film is the second of a series
of releases of official pictures issued
by the United States department of
agriculture, bi-.monthly, and will show
the method of club members in car
rying out oftlcial instructions along
the line of pig raising.
The practicability of producing rap-
id increase in tb pork supply, and of
bringing increased profits to the
farmers vho produce it are matters
of special importance to the depart-
ment of agriculture,.in increasing the
meat supply of the nation at home
and abroad. Effective increases in
the cattle of the country, are netessar-
ily slow, while much more rapid and
effective results may be obtained 'n
the production of pork and mutton.
