DEFENSE TO USE THIRD WOMAN
TO SHIELD ORPET
The silhouette of a third woman
appears in the Lake Forest poison
case. She is a Madison girl, and, ac
cording to one of Orpet's lawyers, she
was at one time in a dehcate condi
tion and a hint of Orpet's name ap
pears in connection with this.
"Orpet will admit that he bought
ergot from his friend, Chas. w. Has
singer, clerk of the Tiedman phar
macy, but not for Miss Lambert," said
the attorney. "These purchases, I
think we shall show, were for his
third sweetheart"
The name of this Madison girl for
whom young Orpet is suspected of
having bought medicine to prevent
her becoming a mother is not re
vealed. Marian Lambert, the girl the poison
killed, not only was not in a delicate
condition at the time of her death
but never had been, according to Dr.
EL E. LeCount, of Coroner Hoffman's
staff, who made a microscopic exam
ination of the vicera.
The fact hat Marian Lambert was
at no time in danger of becoming a
mother and must have known so, not
withstanding that she at one time
took abortion medicine, will be one
of the main points of the defense.
This seems to knock out the theory
that Orpet got the girl to take the
poison by convincing her it was medi
cine that would keep her from having
a child.
Will Orpet's fiancee, Miss Celestia
Youker, DeKalb, was his first sweet
heart. She was the daughter of a
Methodist pastor of the Lake Bluff
Methodist church. Her father would
not allow Orpet in the house. Orpet
turned for sympathy to Marian Lam
bert, the pretty choir singer in the
Lake Forest Presbyterian church.
After the pastor's edath, xOrpet
again paid attention to Miss Youker.
His engagement to her was an
nounced Jan. 9 and a few days later
Orpet waS'keepIrig a secreT. tryst with
Miss Lambert in the woods near Lake
Forest

END LUSITANIA INCIDENT
Washington, Feb. 16. After nine
months of delicate negotiations, con
ference, scheduled, today, between
Sec'y of State Lansing and German
Ambassador Bernstorff was expected
to write "Finis" on Lusitania inci
dent Coincident with final steps toward
passage of Lusitania incident into
diplomatic ristory was sharp turn in
official sentiment against recognition
or acquiescence in new German ad
miralty order affecting armed mer

international law and deny Germany's
right to sink without warning mer

purposes.
