ST. LOUIS, Jan. 13.—1n a copyrighted
story the Post-Dispatch published
today what It claims was the con
fession qf Hay Lamphere, who died a
few days ago in the Indiana state pris
on at Michigan City, when serving a
life sentence for setting fire to the
home of Mrs. Bella Gunness near .La
Porte, Ind.
It is known that the Rev. Dr. E.
A. Schell, formerly of La Porte, heard
Lamphere's confession.
The confession shows that Mrs.
Gunness and three children were chlor
oformed by Lamphere, who was rob
bing the house with a woman accom
plice; that Jennie Olson was not
killed by Mrs. Gunness; that the
chloroform used by Lamphere was part
of that he bought for Mrs. Gunness to
kill three men, one of whom was An
drew Helgeleln, the others probably
Ole Budsburg and Tonnes Petersen
Lien, and that one of these men, prob
ably Lfen, was the third husband of
Mrs. Gunness.
The Post-Dispatch says that if the
Rev. Dr. Schell would consent to talk
he would verify the confession it pub
lishes.
The confession, according to the
paper, was obtained from a man of
unassailable character and truthful
ness, whose standing in the commu
nity where he lives is such that his
word is accepted without question.
Pastor Denies It
The Rev. Dr. Schell at Burlington,
lowa, after hearing the confession
which the Post-Dispatch printed, said
he hud not divulged the alleged con
fession.
A representative of the paper saw
Dr. Schell, who Is president of the
lowa Wesleyan university, at Mount
Pleasant.
Last Sunday he refused to give to
the public the confession Lamphere
made on the ground that it is pledged
by the secrecy of the confessional.
The confession is startling in its
variance from theories hitherto held,
based on all available evidence. It
establishes that Mrs. Gunness is dead.
The body found in the smoking ruins
of the Gunness farm house was the
body of Mrs. Bella Gunness. She was
in the deep sleep that chloroform in
duces when the smoke crept up
through the crevices and smothered
her. She died with the head of her
little boy pillowed on her breast. He
was chloroformed also and died with
out waking. The two little girls, Myr
tle and Lucy, not so thoroughly chlor
oformed, awoke and ran into their
mother's room, where they perished.

daughter of Mrs. Gunness, who it hns
been believed was murdered by the
woman more than a year before the
house was burned, and whose body
was believed to have been burled in
the farm yard, was not murdered by
Mrs. GMIBIMM, according to Lamphere's
confession, but was burned to death
in the tire that destroyed the house.
She also had been chloroformed.
Who Was Other Girl?
Assuming that Lamphere told the
truth about Jennie Olson, the iden
tity of a girl buried in the yard adds
another mystery to the 08M.
Lamphere let himself into the house
the night of the fire. The chloroform
was administered and a search for
money was made, but less than $70
was found. Then he and the woman
who ho says accompanied him went
away, according to, Lamphere, and
it was when he was hurrying toward
the country where Tip was to work
that day that he looked back and saw
flames bursting from the house.
Lamphere. according to the confes
sion, had a guilty knowledge of the
murder of three men in the Gunness
home during the time he lived there,
about eight months in 1907, and he as
sisted Mrs. Gunness in disposing of the
bodies of the three men.
He said he thought he had not re
ceived as much of the profits of the
transaction as he considered himself
entitled to and he went to the farm
house at night with a woman, chloro
formed Mrs. Gunnesn, her three chil
dren and Jennie Olson.
Searched the House
Hs and the woman searched the
house, finding between $C 0 and $70. The
light they used was a. candle and they
left the house without knowing they
had left behind a spark which caused
the flames.
Mrs. Gunness' method of killing her
victims, Lamphere said, was first to
chloroform them as they slept and
then, if the drug did not itself kill, to
sever their heads with an ax.
Karli time a man was to be mur
dered, according to Lamphere, she sent
him to purchase chloroform. Lam
phere said he saw one of the men
killed and aided in burying all three.
Thess men were Andrew Hslgelein
and probably Ole Budsberg and Tonnes
Petersenlien. Helgeiein, Lamphere
thought, was the third husband of Mrs.
Gunness.
At the time of the Lamphere trial it
was thought Jennie Olson had been
killed by Mrs. Gunness. Lamphere,
however, details how Mrs. Gunness
had secreted her in the house after she
returned from a visit and she was
chloroformed by Lamphere and his ac
complice.
Lamphere said he was drunk the
night he visited the place. He thought
he would find $1500.
Lamphere did not desire the death of
the Gunness children and Jennie Olaon.
His first question when he was arrest
ed on suspicion of having set fire to
the house was whether the children
had escaped. He did not even intend to
kill Mrs. Gunness.
Although he confessed to more
atrocious crimes, he did not admit he
intentionally started the fire in which
Mrs. Gunness perished.
Once he was willing to enter a for
mal plea of guilty to that charge in
the hope of leniency, but when he
learned that in the confession of ar
son would be Involved a confession of
murdering the family he refused.
May Have Been Slain
Inquiry at La Porte by the Post-Dis
patch shows that Ole O. Budsburg of
lola, Wls., who sold his farm and went
to La Porte with the money, and whose
body was found buried in the Gunness
farm yard, may have been one of the
men. Budsburg, as near as can be as-
LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, -JAMWHY 14. 1910.
certained, went ta La Porte about the
time that Lamphere went to live at
the Gunness farm.
The other man, believed to have
been the second victim of Mrs. Gun
ness while Lamphere was there, was
Tonnes Petersen Lien of Rushford,
Minn., whose disappearance and sup
posed death, the Post Dispatch says,
is made public for the flint time.
A few days ago Samuel Petorsen
Lien, a brother of Tonnes, went to La
Porte looking for him. To H. W. Wor
den, attorney for Lamphere, he told his
story.
He and Tonnes lived together near
Rushford on a farm. Samuel Lien had
been a sailor and a rover. He tired of
life in Minnesota and went west. For
two years l\e heard nothing from his
brother. When he came back recently
Magnus Anderson, for whom Tonnes
had worked, told Sam that Tonnes had
seen an advertisement of Mrs. Gunness
in a Norwegian paper, had corre
sponded with her and had gold the
farm.
Anderson had sewed the money in
his coat sleeve for him, and Tonnes
had gone to La Porte to marry the
Widow Gunness. That was the last
ever heard of him.
Worden asked the brother if Tonnes
had anything by which he could bo
identified. Sam said Tonnes liml i
heavy silver watch, on the ease of
which he (Ham) had scratched the
initials "T. L."
AVorden remembered such a watch
as one of those found in the ruins of
the Gunnrss house. The body of this
man has not been found.
Mr. Worden said the most Lamphere
ever would tell him was that he wa
in the cellar of the Gunness house the
night Helgeiein was killed and that he
heard him groaning and asking that
a doctor be sent for.

MISSIONARY BISHOP
OF AFRICA RETURNS
Passes Fourteen Years on Dark Con
tinent and Comes to Los An.
geles to Raise $15,000
for Jubilee Fund
After fourteen years of active serv
ice as bishop in the missionary workj
of Africa, J. C. Hartzell arrived in Los
Angeles yesterday morning. His pur
pose is to raise the $15,000 planned!
to complete a deficit of $350,00u in the]
great diamond Jubilee fund of Africa,]
which the bishop endeavored to raise
last year.
In an interview last night at the
Hotel Fremont, where the bishop is
a guest, he said:
"X was elected bishop of Africa in
1896 and since that time have been
superintending the establishment of
Christian minions in different parts!
of the African continent, both among!
barbarifc native heathens and Moham-,
medans. My journeys have averaged!
more than 30,0u0 miles a year by every;
method of travel known to the human
being,
'We have three rrreat mission cen
ters on tile west coast, two in Bast
Africa and the same number in North
Africa. The success of missionary
work on that continent is marked.
Among the native heathen it is only;
a question of securing competent men I
and women as leaders for great results.
The natives accept Christianity readilyj
and become faithful and reputable|
Christians.
"We teach the simpler industries,
especially agriculture. We reduce the
native language! t<> writing wherever
our missionaries are located. We use
the printing press nnrl are row print-1
ing in eight different languages. Some:
of these languages are remarkable for|
their fixed forms and for their facil-|
ities to express fine shades of thought, |
equal in some respects with the Latin. I
There are more than 600 different lin-j
guistic dialects in Africa, of these ■
nearly one-half are distinct languages, I
permanent in form and capable of be
ing reduced to writing and used in in-i
struction and uplift of the people.
"The great need of missionary work
in Africa is a large increase of work
ers and money to strengthen the cen
ters and extend the work in regions
beyond. During 1909 we celebrated our
Africa diamond jubilee and raised
$335,000. With this the work will be>
much strengthened the next few years. |
"I am here to speak on the work
in Africa and to secure reinforcements
In workers and financial aid and wish
to increase the jubilee fund to
$350,000."
Yesterday noon the bishop addressed
the students at the University of
Southern California and In the after
noon visited the aviation camp to see
the feats of the air. Bishop Hartzell
will speak Sunday morning at the
First Methodist church.

"BEAUTIFUL FACE AND
NO MORE WRINKLES"
FREE BEAUTY GOUPON
FOR LOS ANGELES HERALD READERS
Arrangements have been made with
Harriett Meta, World's Famous Beau
ty Specialist of Paris. London and Syr
acuse, N. V., to furnish free particu
lars to all readers of the Los Angeles
Herald in regard to what is believed
to be the most remarkable method of
removing wrinkles which has ever
been discovered.
Mile. Meta has been awarded nine
Gold Medals by Paris, London, Brus
sels, Rome and other International
Expositions on her great Beauty dis
coveries. The French government has
honored her with a patent on her won
derful new process for removing
wrinkles and patents are also now
pending before the United States Gov
ernment at Washington.
Mile. Meta is, herself, a living ex
ample of the great power of her re
markable beauty-making discoveries.
By many she is considered the most
beautiful woman in all Paris.
She took her own wrinkles out in
three nights by her new discovery over
three years ago, after face massage,
masks, straps and steaming pots had
all failed to remove them, and her skin
today is still soft and smooth; her face
beautiful, and she has no more wrin
tles. But, best of all, her discovery

SENSATIONAL EPISODE
IN MINISTERS' DEBATE
Speaker Refuses to. Read Testimony
as to Morals of Joseph Smith,
Claiming It Is Indecent
For the fourth consecutive evening
the manuscripts of Solomon Spaulding,
alleged to have been stolen and in
corporated by Joseph Smith, founder
of the Mormon church, in his revela
tions and book of Mormons, was dis
cussed last night in the debate be
tween Rev. T. W. Williams, presiding
elder of the Reorganized Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and
Rev. Harvey Hazel, pastor of the
Boyle Heights Christian church, each
contending that the church he repre
sents is the true church' in harmony
with the New Testament doctrines.
One of the sensational episodes of
the debate is the contended assertion
of Clark Braden printed in the Braden
and Kelly debate regarding the moral
life of Joseph Smith, and which Mr.
Hazel refuses to read before a mixed
audience, saying that it is indecent.
Mr. Williams said that there was no
such passage and defied Mr. Hazel to
read it. In turn Mr. Hazel defied Mr.
Williams to read it at the session this
evening or to have it passed upon by,
the chairman whether it was proper
to bring into the debate.
