Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LCTHBRIDQE, ALTA., THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1101 THE ATLAPORTE La Porte, frill., May 13.- Unless the sifting and sluicing of the powdered debris taken Irom the cellar of the today about the.

Yes terday's developments exhausted most of the sources of sensation in the case and the authorities are now con- fronted with the task of finding de- tails confirming the main points al- ready adduced. Just how successful they will be will probably not be revealed until Ray Lamphere is brought to trial. Prosecutor Smith has evidently mo- dified his previous determination to rush the case into court, finding that the state's side may be strengthened in many particulars. Coroner Mack iias made public the results of his in- vestigation on all the known bodies, How is Your tiie statements to the prosecuting at- torney Smith what 1 know will be maintained as an inviolable secret." Mr. Schell added that like many others he 'believed Mrs. Guiness was a devil, but lie had no knowledge of the fact, it was merely his personal opinion. Speaking further concerning the case and some of the people connect- ed with it, Mr. Sohell said, "Mrs. Guiness, asj I said yesterday, was an attractive woman in her way. She was always dressed richly and in good taste, but lu-r manner ui talking, her speech itself, her vagaries of grammar betrayed a low origin."
