of William Orpet, as it is known to |

the hands of State's Attorney Dady
of Waukegan, by Harry Beardslcy, '

Beardsley, It Is believed d>- imk|
prosecution, has forged the final,
link In a chain of evidence which
will convict Orpet as the murderer of
his sweetheart, Marian Lambert, In
the woods near Lake Forest.
Among other things Beardsley said
he established the fact that three
months ago Orpet went to Carl
Fischer, a fellow student in the journalism
class at the University of
Wisconsin and begged Fischer to find
hint a physician who would consent
to perform an abortion.
The nest day Fischer left word
with Charles 'Haeslnger. the drug ,
clerk who afterword told of having;
rold Ornet a two-ounce bottle, tligt
he had done as Orpet requested.
"Tell orpet,' he said, according to
the detectlre, "that I have a doctor

Is Issued Concerning Controversy
with Great Britain over
Seizure of Dutch Vessels.
<nv *??nriATio
LONDON', Feb. 19?The correspondent
or Reuter's Telegram Company
at The Hague says that the
Netherlands government has issued a
report concerning (lie controversy
with 'Great Britain over the seizure
of Dulrh mails. The report, it Is
said, cites various protests already
made and wherein It was contended
that nil such seizeures wore In violation
of The Hague convention, I
which guaranneed Inviolability of1
overscan mails without restriction. I
Repulylng to the contention of thei
British government that the seizures:
of Dutch mails were all made In
British territorial waters, which are
subject to British sovereignity, the
Dutch government pointed out that'
the British government had laid;
mine Holds of areas in open sea,;
which forced vessels to pasB through
British territorial waters Instead of
remaining in the sea. '

CHARLESTON, Feb. 1!).?That he!
has no ambition to hold office hut pre-1
fers to give his time to the practice
of his profession as physician and
surgeon is the declaration made by
Governor Honry I). Hatfield in a statement
given out today, in which he says I
that he will not bo a candidate for
United States senator. In making
this declaration the govornor ex-'
presses his appreciation of the con-|
fldence reposed in him by the people,
in electing him to the highest office in l
the state, especially sinoe his election;1
came at a time when few Republican ^
governors were elected in the country, j1
The govornor points out that:
through legislation the Republican '
party has carried out its every plat-11
form pledge to the people and that 1

seek to dictate to others or force his
ideas upon them. He reserves the '
right "to bring to pass by argument j
and persuasion" those things which'
he believes "will conserve the party's,
and the public's best interest."

Though accused of attempting to j
build up a political machine to per- 1

Hatfield declares that he has not solicited
the support of any one connected
with his administration for any
candidate. "1 shall leave these men '
free' from undue Influence, as 1 exact for
myself, to support whomsoever
they please," he says, and further 1
states that "there is nothing 1 expect 1
nr want from mv successor, retard- 1
less as to whether be be friendly or
otherwise towards me." '
But, he points out, the Republican
party can remain the dominant party
only by "selecting; and supporting men (
who are willing to go forward and
use their best efforts In fulfllling the j
I party's pledges,- and standing Bteid- |
| lastly for the public welfare against ,

"must be considered to the detriment j,

will not tolerate extravagance nor do (

of the government, being willing to i
pay the worth of what they reeclve.
