Washington, May 6. Senator War
ren today reported to the senate a
southern states-for first choice for complete agreement in conference to
La Porte, Ind., May C. From out the
mass of tangled and sensational evi
dence which indicates that Mrs. Belie
Guinness was one ' of the most mon
strous murderers of the-century, and
that her beautiful,' well kept farm near
La Porto was a clearing place of as
sassination and crime, there developed
today the startling " theory that the
woman did not die In the fire which
destroyed her home the night of April
2S. and that she is still alive and in
hiding at present in Chicago. .
Head "till MInhIdb.
This theory Is strengthened by the
fact the head of the body of the wo
man found in the ruins of the Gninness
home after the lire is still missing, al
though every effort was made by the
authorities to locate it. Unless the
head is found today the officers will
nnrke a post mortem examination of
the remains of Mrs. Guinness and sub
ject them to a mora careful analysis
to learn whether or, 'hot the woman
was herself killed in the fire or had
substituted the remains of one of her
female victims for herself and then
set fire to the house in order to cover
up the crime.
May Have Killed Children.
In case it is proved Mrs. Guinness
did substitute the body of another wo
man for her own, it is very likely she
was also guilty or the murder of her

was acquainted with Mrs. Guinness,
and in company with her visited the

has never been seen since.

There is strong reason to believe
the identification of the dismembered

brother of Andrew, yesterday declared
himself positive the body was that of
his brother, nit today says he is not
so certain? There are many discrep

Myatery Far From Solution.
La Porte, Ind., May 6. The' mystery
of the Guinness farm is far from so
lution. With every passing hour de
velopments - add to the 6tory with
amazing rapidity and before the end
of the day it is expected by the coun-
1y officials they will have evidence
, of. one of the most fiendish plots in
i he history of the county, one that
will rival In every way the .famous
'. Bender case of Kansas. 1

case resembles that of the Bender

murdering Mrs. Guinne and her three
children after having V-ngaged with
he was told last night of the finding
of the bodies he exclaimed:
"My God, are there five bodies? I
always thought something was wrong."
The exclamation was made 1 when
State's Attorney Smith was putting
him -through the "third degree."
tt'Hl Tenr Up Floor.
The police are today making careful
search of the Guinness premises. A
concrete floor which Mrs. Guinness
had put, in the basement two years
ago will be torn up as it is thought
there may be another "burial" be
neath it. So far, five bodies, three
men and two women, have been un
earthed. This makes a total of nine
people who were victims of the fire
which destroyed the home of Mrs.
Guinness or were murdered while the
woman who met death in the flames
was mistress. v-. '. .
Three Are I'nldentlfled.
Of the bodies unearthed yesterday
two were identified. They were those
of Andrew Helgelein, a wealthy bach
elor of Mansfield, S. D., and Miss Jen
nie Olson, 11-year-old step daughter of
Mrs. Guinness, ihe other three bodies
are so 1)adly decomposed as to make
Identification impossible. The discov
ery of the bodies was brought about by
the appearance, of A..K. Helgelein of
Aberdeen, S. D., brother of Andrew
Helgelein in LaPorte in search of the
missing man. With the Information
that his brother Andrew- had come to
LaPorte to wed Mrs. Guinness and that
he had turned over his property to
her he became convinced he had been
made a victim of foul play.
Hired Man Gave (lew.
While questioning Joseph Maxson,
a hired hand on the Guinness farm, he
learned of the mysterious digging of
holes by him, till of them being filled
at a later date by Mrs. Guinness. He
led Helgelein and the officers to the
spot where the holes had been dug,
about 150 feet from the house, and
there, after digging, was uncovered the
body of Helgelein. The remains were
only four feet under the groundand
were enclosed in a gunny sack. Legs
and arms had been dismembered, but
wefe with the trunk. Thirty-five feet
further on the remains of four other
persons were found?
The bodies found in the yard be
sides those of Helgelein and Jennie
Olson'are those of a man and two chll
dren, apparently 12 years of age. So
many bones were missing in the lat
ter two that it is not known whether
they are male or female. All the bod
