CMnago. Sept. 22. Ex-Judge W. A.
Vincent eSed all theories at to what the
Laetgert deftwM- wonld be by putting tbe
matter oisarly before the Jury in an address
lawrtBg daring the entire forenoon and part
of tins afternoon.
He began by declaring that he would he
tltie to allow the Jury to take the
cat wiihoat making any further fight, but,
Latsgeit. he wild, would not consent to
t bis. wttihiasrlH! deof tits remarkable story
pt before, not only the court, but the
P-apie at terse, who have heard only the
ullqgattous f tiie prosecution.
It was aduHUed that Bialfc and Odoroff
cld, employes of the stowage naker, had
told rUc troth in detail under the intcr
rogaUo of Mr XJcEwen andMr Dineeit.
The presence of the potash in the vat
and bone- mixed with sediment were the
TOS-tt, the attorney stated, of Luetgert's
attemjrt to make ctft soap on tbe night
or May 1. He dwelt Ug on tiie open
manor in wirich all prcpaiatimi were

GoMCieuieo of tbe Jury," he -aid, in
coarlpsfcnt, "v. e have no doubt In our
niinds what the verdict will be."
Ex-Judgr Adams A- Goodrich and his
partner, Ralph H. Dradley, Luetgert's
burftiejss attorneys, testified tliat Luetgert
lolrt titem after hit wife's disappearance
that she had left home, and that he
thought she was with relatives in or

adt'ised l'lu not u do it at the time, as
It would Injure Ms chaneesof raising money
to settle his business troubles.
Adoiph Elandt, an old employe of the
Luctgert family, testified that he rolled
two barrels of grease and one filled with
bones, mo4Jj chopped up, into tin- base
ment, May 1, and left them by the vat,
acting under Luetgert's orders, lie saw
the potash solution in the vat.
On Monday the barrels and vat were
empty Ills inference was that Luetgerc
was experimenting at soaprnakiug that
night. "Witness, said that Mrs Luetgert
had told him several times dnriug tlut
week fiat she intended to leave home,
as the basin or was ruined and bhe coulo
not Iwar to have people pointing at her

Rosa Gneith, seventeen years of ng-j,
