taken it away McNuIly to Verify Story Dr Wesner directly contradicted Dr Ralph W Webster the expert who testified for the state Added weight to his opinions will be given today by William McNally diem Is to tae CooK County cornoner Mr McNally also was a stales witness testifying the day after lie was call ed into tho case That was on Tune 13 Since that date he had complet ed experiments which have caused nim to coincide with the views pf Dr Wesener Dr Wesener based his Important statement on research in his own laboratory He was convinced ho said that the threespots wore not made by potassium cyanide in liquid form because dlie poison in solution runs off woolen cloth In the same manner as globules of mercury He Nras positive that if tlie poison had spilled from the bottle on the coat at the time of the girls death the drops would have slid from it into tho snow Hints Sitots Were Fresh The witness also corroborated what is to be one of the salient fea tures of Olicmist MrjNallys testi mony The latter said that on June 12 when he first saw the coat ho detected the odor of potassium cyan ide arising from the spots This od or is not present after the cyanide has been exposed to tho atmosphere for throe or four weeks he said Marian Lambert had been dead near ly three months when the coat was called to his attention On the coat were streaks made by saliva which contained a little cya nide Dr Wesener was asked to ex plain why the odor was not to be found in the streaks as well as in the spots Me said ho could not un derstand such a condition unless the cyanide was powdered and there was more of it in the spols than in the streaks Even if sush was title case the od or should disappear from these stains within six weeks after they were made he said If all the stains were made by liquid the odor which resembles thatof peach seeds he said should be within threo or four weeks The fact that tiio coat bad been kept in a pasteboard box for several weeks after Marian Lambert was buried would not prevent the potas sium cyanide from decomposing and the cyanide passing off in a gaa known as cyanogen he said Sergeant flriimmoii Weds tto hlie Perform ed by Chaplain Nichols His
