TPIE WASHINGTON TIMES. SUNDAY, MARCH 12; 'l91G. 9 2 i ORPET MUST FACE COIIi til College Student to Go Into Court, Accused of Poisoning His Fiancee. ONLY TWO KNOW THE TRUTH Prisoner Himself and Chum cf Marian Lambert Alone Can Solve Mystery. ill ON MURDER CHARGE WATJKEGAN. II!.. March 12.-Wllllan) W. Orpet will go Into court tomorrow to answer to the charge of murdering Harlan Lambert. Tho Stato's case Is ready. an1 If Judge Edwards denies the defense's irotlon to quash the indictment, the trial Is expected to proceed without do lay. Murder or suicide? That Is the ques tion. Was tho fatal dose of cyanldl of potassium given to this flower of yodng womanhood by her former fiance or die" she swallow the dendly draught of her own volition and fall dead at Ills feet for unrequited love? Strangely enough, there are on'y two persona In this jworld who can tell how little Marian Lambert died. One U William Orpet. The other Is Jcaephlno Davis. Marian Lambert's Chum. Mlsa Davis was the "chum" of Mar lan'Xambert. To"her Marian Lambert told all the story of her lovo and the consequences aho dreaded. Thoso two spent tho night together, the last night Marian ever spent on earth. Far Into the night, you may bo quite sure, these chums talked things over. They talked of Will Orpet, of Cclcstln Youker, tho slrl ho cald ho meant to marry. They talked of September and the great fear they had both faced to gether then for Marian's sake. A letter had Just como from Orpet asking Marian to meet him In tho woods tho next morning, and of course the Blrls talked that all over. Why he waa coming, what ho wanted and what Marian should say to Wm. Very likely they even rehearsed together just how x Marian should say It! So little did either girl dream of tho tragedy that hung over this last confidence, with Its whispered secicts In tho ilnrk and Ita stumbling, girlish plana of the way to "flJC things!" And all this confidence todnv-110 lonrer Just high school "secrets" cf two young girls, but stark tragedy with a boy's life hanging In the hal nnce lies !n tho keeping of thl hon rst. strong-minded. girl, whoso responsi bility and loyalty to her dead friend must stand tho worst test n i:irl ever '"'TV1!? 'certain that Will Orpet kilted S-!o Jofoplilno Davis declared In the llrt statement she has tnailn since her friend died. Miss Davis will evidently lie tho most Important witness for tho Htnto. "Now I am willing for Will to con fens, fio that wo will be spared the pain of a long trial," the girl con tinued. Another Important Witness. Another very Important witness for tho State ulirbe the drug clerk who rold Oipct nil empty phial tho day bo foro Urn Kill's death. Of course, tho de fence ran h.i.v that Orpet bought thin rmpty liottlo for his shaving lotion, be cause he had cracked his old one on tho wash stnud. So llio ilefoiife will ulrlvo to provn that this purchaco has no significance. Hut tho Stato consldcis this bottle the brittle link that will ultimately coniioct Orprt illiei'tly with tho crime. Marian Jjainbert tiled, of n deadly poison, cyanldo of potassium. Where Is the liottlo that contained this poison? It has not yet been found. Charles Jiawingor, a student In phar macy nnd n drug .clerk nt Madison, WIe., recently umplltlcd his original stntcment In which he admitted selling an ounco of ergot to William Kelck, u mutual friend. linsslnger declared he had not only sold tills medicine to Orpet, but that on or ub6ift last Thanksgiving Day ho had sold him two more ounces of n drug which Is pronounced fatal If used In quantities of more than sixty drops.

Dr. Uothclho, pliyslclon, surgeon, scientist, and nulhor, was a delegate to thi Second Pan-American' Sclonttlic Congress last January. At that time tlho lirazlllan treatment for the "white plague" wan attracting some attention, and Dr. Uothclho found that tho Interest In It was such In this country that he came back and will make his headquarter! In the Capital. llcforo tho Scientific Cengrcss ho told how his country, In a rystcmatlo anti tuberculosis war, had organized various districts, and had applied tho treatment for periods extending over several Jrf.rs.

' Twenty years ago Dr. Uothclho was a representative from Urazll to the llrst Latin Medical Congress, held nt San tiago, Chile. At that time ho proposed that the congress bo mado a l'artAmerlcan af fair, so that scientists from tho United States might participate.

It Is believed bv a good many people that Mr. Stone's opinion, which Is hated upen what he learned from national party leaders vhlle In New York. Indi cates that there Is a disposition among these leaders to accept either Colonel llooscvelt or Justice Hughes tfs tho Presidential candidate. The Bull Moose parlv will npt nom-, Innte nnyono unsatisfactory to Colonel llooscvelt. In the event of a Joint nom ination, It Is taken for granted that Colonel Koscvelt would be the most satisfactory nomination to Colonel Itoosevelt If. however, It wero Impos sible to reach an agreement upon him that Is. If tho Republican convention re fused to take him It is believed that Colonel rto-'sevelt would prefer Justice Hughes ns the second choice. Mr. Stono said: "During tho past several days a num ber of Republican party leaders have been In New York nnd have been In tourh with tho rank nnd lllo of the party "throughout thn couiltry, as well aa with represcntalves of the Pro gressive party.

REPAIR BILL EARNS SEC. WILSON NEW CAR Congressmen Decide on Change When Item of $1,367 is Presented. The sad story of Secretary ,WIIon' second-hand nutomo'blle, which cost tho Department of Labor a repair bill or 11,337 In ono year, was Jold to tho IIouso yestorday. Congressman Stafford, a .member of tho (Appropriations Committee, said tho committee had discovered that Sec retary Wilson gave J809 for a second hand machine of tho model of 1912, which had already traveled moro than 12,000 miles, and that during tho last liscal year the Becrctar had spent nearly 11,400 repairing ,ra Junk ma chine." "So the committee docldcd," said Mr., Diquoro, mat wo nau ueucr ioi mui buy a new machine even If he will not get to use It but a few months Until his tlmo of offlco expires." Mr. Stafford Is a Republican, nnd thinks Secretary WRson will leave of fice next March. Minority Leader Mann said there wus "no great degroe of brilliancy In the ptnt'hase of an old mnrhlnn which cost $1,337 In one year for repairs, when he could havn gotten .a new ma chine for less than that amount. The iecsiniin anDrnoriauon i;iii -ni- rles a P6.0CO contingent fur.d for the Department of Labor, and out tlf this the Becretary Is allowed to pay for a. new machine by exchange or purchase. Mr. Stafford said Secretary "Wilson had traded In tho horscn and carrla;;n form erly used by the Secretary of Labor, for the srccnd-har.d automobile.
