THKI t ALliUvjUEKQUK UTlKH. A WITNESS SAYS' is. guess IS ALIVE Farmer Will Testify In Lam phere Case He Saw Woman After House Burntd. mm fights TO PROVE HIS SANITY Fugitive From Lunatic's Cell, This Ni wY-nKer Tries to Save His Fortune. From Every Ounce offveLu La Porte. Ind., Nov. 6. The trial f Ray Lamphere fir the murdor of Mrs. Belle Gunness, the La Porte murderess, who burled her many victims In her dooryard whlrh Is to be called on Nov. , hts been com plicated during the last week by the discovery nf three w tnesses who will wear for the defense that Mrs. Gunn.ss Is not dead; that they saw ker visit the scene of hi r ghnctl7 crimes and flee with a man who ac companied her on July 9 last. Charles Hudson, farmer, and hl two daughters, nine and twelve years oi l, are the add t'ons to tne arrry of witnesses In this iase of circum stantial evidence already Involved In no much uncertainty that It Is hazar dous to predict that any Ju y "ul 1 agree. Hudson telis the following story: "On July 9 I was driving to my home, which Is near the Gunnesa farm, and noticed a man and a wo man walking about the plate. 1 was close enough to be aoie ti distinguish the woman's features, and although she wore a heavy veil 1 was positive he could be nu one elsa than M. Gunness. I approached within fifty feet of the couple and co.ild sre that the man's hair was streaked w.th gray above his ears. The woman hurried to a wagon on my approach the man jumped In beside her and the two drove away as fast as they could make their horse run. I drove after them as fast as I could, but they distanced me and I gave up the cha.e when I arrived at my hou "I woulJ not nave been so certain had not my daughter, Claia, aged nine called out to nu- In grest ex citement as I drove nn: 'Papa, I J'ist now Mrs. OunnesH drive past here ahead of you.' An hnur later my other dnuothter, Mabel, who Is tw;lve, came'home and told me 'he name story, that fh" had Fcen Mrs. Gun ness drive past the farm. "I went Immediately and told Sheriff S'mutzrr hut . e only laughed at me. I then Informed narrow and Worsen attorneys fr Lamphere. I am ready to swear that I could not have been mistaken."' This news has fallen upin the prosecution as a great surprise, al though persons from one end of the country to the other have made "positive" Identifications of women they Imagined wre the La Porte murderess since the controversy fol lowing the burning of her home as to whether Mrs. Gunness was the woman who died In the ruins w;th her three children. On the th ory that the woman was alive, numerous women who bore nome resemblance to the murderess were detained, one being arrested and taken from a sleeping car p-tfs-lng through Iltlca. Another sensa tional feature of the case was the at tempts to Implicate other persons. Notable among these was the fake "confession" of Julius O. Truelson. Jr., of New York, son of a well-to-do piano manufacturer, who swo-e In the Jail In Vr-rnon, T"X., that h" wn an accompl cc of Mrs. Gunness and that Ray Lam phi re n s'sted h'm to dispose of several bodies after Mrs. Gunness hnd murdered them. Truel son is stlM in the Texas jail, hld for forgery, his "confession" thoroughly disproved. Since the enso dropped partly from public attention the. chemical analy kIb of the stomachs nf te womsn and two of the children had been eomplrted snd has changed sveral respects rf the prosecution of lamp here. Arsenic and strychnine were found In ouantitlcs sufficient to have caused death, leading to the supposi tion that the woman may hav pois oned herself and her three children and then set fire to the houso. On this theory tho defense of Lt mphere would have rested with gi od chanc nf acquittal had not H'idson, the neighboring farmer come forwara with the statement that he and his daughters have see.n Mrs. Gunness ai: ve. The trial may lust two weeks though one wees: Is counted on hy the defense to gain Lamphere's lib erty. The state has elected to go to tilal on the indioement for the mur der nf Mrs. Gurness. If on that charge Lamphere be acqu'tted ft may place him on trial on the Indict ment charging complicity in tha murder of Andrew . Helgelein, tho last victim, who was lu-e to tie farm last Christmas, robbed of near ly 13 000, poisoned, his body oinsect ei and burled In the dooryard. In this cas.i the state will attempt to prove. If It goes to trial, that ijimi here on the right of Helgeleln'a murder, returned with a friend from Michigan City wh-nce M-. f'unness had senk h'm on an errand, and that he got off the Interurhan car, saying he guessed he would "drop in on the old lady and see what she's doing" and tt.at then he caught Mr In the act of murdr and by his silence If not by his assistance, be came her accomplice.

An un usual undertaking, the building of a fireproof village. Is In progn as at Mountain Station, on the border Tne between Orange and South Orange, N. J. Six houses arc well on the way to completion already nnd they are all made of burned day In the form o' hollow blocks. The roofs are of either asbestos shingleg or Blite. Nowhere else In the country, it la said are there so many fireproof dwelling houses In one group. The scheme- is the rrsult of the study of Improved methods of construction within the last few years. The he'rs of the Henry A. Page estate are carrying through the un dertaking. One of the Page hi Irs who has been litereted, for "vm! years Is developing the properties of the estate, formerly put up houses of reinforced eoncrttn. . Recently he re tained an engineer to make a special Investigation of fireproof materials nd building methods, for the pur pose of camparlson. The conse quence of the Investigation was that terra cotta blocks. Instead of con crete, were chosen for the Jersey dwellings. Fach of the houses now b"ing built at Mountain Statlon has eight or ten rooms. All partitions, as well as tha floors and outside walls, are of terra cotta, so that a fire could not he spttad from one room to another. In ne of the Jinuses Is a floor with a si an of eighteen feet, the longest span ever made with this type of construction.
