DEAD ALIVE
Or Luetgert's Witnesses
Are Mistaken
SAUSAGE MAKER'S DEFENSE
IS AS STRONG AS THE CASE
ADMITS OF
Three Witnesses Give Evidence That
Mrs. Luetgert Is Alive—ldenti
fication Not Complete
Associated Press Special Wire.
CHICAGO, Sept 23.—Viewed from
various standpoints today's proceedings
in the Luetgert murder trail were the
most remarkable that have occurred
within the three weeks. In the face of
the sensational circumstantial evidence
that hae been produced to prove that
Mrs. Luetgert met her death in her hus
band's sausage factory on May Ist, three
witnesses testified today that they saw
the woman alive on May 3rd and 4th.
Ore of these talked to her and be
lieves from a description and a photo-,
graph of Mrs. Luetgert that the woman,
he saw was Mrs. Luetgert. This wit
ness was Matt J. Sholey, a barkeeper
at the Hotel Maple, Kenosha, Wis. He
said he saw a strange woman at the
Hotel Maple on the evening of May 3rd..
He talked with her nearly ten minutes.
She asked to be directed to the farm of
one Mueller in the neighborhood, but
as no one seemed to know of such a per
son, the woman left. The following day
Sholey again saw the woman. He de
scribed her general appearance aiTd her
clothing: and identified a photograph of
Mrs. Luetgert as the woman. On cro is
examination by States Attorney Deenan
the witness at tirst placed her weight
at 130 or 140 pound?. Then he hesitated
and said he had got mixed up and then
remarked the woman weighed 115 or US
pounds, which was about Mrs. Luet
gert's weight. This hesitation and cor-,
rection was made much of by the pros
ecution, which intimated that it indi
cated that Sholey had forgotter the
weight that had been probably told him
at first.
Policeman Hen.ry Feldshaw of Ken
oeha, Wis., testified that he saw a
strange woman in the police station in
his town on May 3rd. The witness said
he afterward saw the woman at the
Hotel Maple, and the following day at
the railway station. He described the
woman as a blonde and said she wore
• sailor hat and slippers. One of the
slippers 9he had worn, was found in the
police station after she had left. The
witness indentified the picture of Mrs.
Luetgert as closely resembling the wo
man he saw.
Wm. Gunsten, a clerk in the Grant
hotel, Kenosha, identified the photo
graph as the picture of a woman he saw
in his hotel on May 3rd. He said she
came into the hotel and remained ten
minutes and left. He described the wo
man and corroborated the evidence of
the other witnesses.
Emma Schimpke came to the court
room in the afternoon to hear Rosa
Gleich impeach her evidence given on
Wednesday. She was fighting mad when
she heard herself made out a falsifier.
Attorney Phalen discovered her pres
ence in the room and called her to the
witness stand. When asked if she had
told Rosa Gleich she had lied on the
witness stand the witness replied: "I
don't remember."
"Did you not tell Harry Fiedler you
lied when you said you saw Mr. and
Mrs. Luetgert on May Ist?
"I don't remember."
"Did you not tell Rosa Gleich you did
not see Mr. and Mrs. Luetgert the night
of May 1st?"
"I may have said so."
Mrs. Mattie Scherrer, the last witness
of the day, testified positively that Em
ma Schimpke told her that the testi
mony the Schimpke girl had given on
the witness stand was false.
VINTAGE LATE
A Good Product Promises But Small
Returns
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 23.—The
California vintage is later than usual,
but will be superior to any since 1882,
while the drying crop will be the largest
the state has produced since the bonanza
year of 1893. The total vintage is esti
mated at from 15,000,000 to 20,000.000 gal
lons. The price, however, will probably
be low owing to competition among the
big corporations handling the product.
The Sonoma county vintage is the fin
est ever known. The berries are fat and
clean. Three million gallons of capacity
have been added, which will permit the
vlneyardists to store all the wine which
will amount to- ahout 8,250,000 gallons.
Last season the product of Santa Clara
county was 4.000.000 gallons, which has
been increased this year about 25 per
cent, bringing it up to 5,000,000. Some
damage has been done by the vine hop
per, but as a rule the quality of the wine
ls good.
The Livermore valley sustains US
high standard of excellence and this
season will exceed its last year's yield
of 1,500.000 gallons.
In Napa county, although there has
been some planting of resistant stock.
It has not kept pace with the ravages of
the phylloxera. The quality of the wine
is good and the yield will be about 1,500
--000 gallons.
ARCTIC CONDITIONS
Captain Tuttle Expects Many Miners
Will Starve
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.—Captain
Tuttle, in command of the revenue cut
ter Bear, one of the Bering Sea patrol
fleet, in a report to the Secretary of the
Treasury, gives an official account of the
rescue of Captain Whltesid.es, his wife
■nd a number of the crew of the whaling
steamer Navarch, which was caught in
the Ice pack off Icy Cape, on July 30th.
and also reports as to the condition of
affairs at St. Mlchales.
The Bear reached St. Michaels on Aug
ust 28th, where about three hundred
miners were found camping on the beach.
On arrival Captain Tuttle received re
quests from the Alaska Commercial
Company and the North American Trad
lac and Transportation Company to re
main with his command at St. Michaels
until some means could be devised to
maintain law and order. He was informed
that among the sudden Influx of people
there were many bad characters and
previous to the arrival of the Bear ope:i
threats had been made as to what they
would do If the transportation company
failed to get them up the Yukon. This
was Impossible with the means at hand.
Captain Tuttle says that transportation
would close In a few days and. that twelve
vessels were then on the way to St.
Michaels, most of them with passengers,
'and it was his opinion that if they did
jnot return on the vessel which brought
the-m much suffering would result. Th
captain decided to comply with the re
quests which had been made until Cap
tain Hooper, in command of the Bering
Sea. fleet, could be communicated with
ar," a vessel detailed for the duty until
September 30th, when, he says, a mili
tary force will arrive.
In concluding his report Captain Tuttla
says that in his opinion the situation on
the Yukon this winter will be a very
serious matter and. in his judgment the
limited supply of food will result in much
suffering and starvation.
THE MULLAH'S DEFEAT
Expected to Quell the Spirit of
Mischief
! SIMLA. Sept. 23.—The expected at
tack by General Elles with the brigades
| from Camp Havana or. Bedmania pass.
I held by the Haddah Mullah with a largo
■ force of Mohmonds and Shinwaris, took
! place yesterday. The tribesmen were
finally driven out of every position. The
| British now hold the heights, command-
J ing the pass and Bemania village on
;the other hand.
The mountain guns first bombarded
the enemy whose positionswere stormed
in capital style by the Twentieth Punjab
infantry, supported by a Maxim detaeh
j ment.
It is a significant fact that the Twen
tieth Punjab is partly composed of Af
: ridis. The British continue to advance.
:It is expected they will capture Jarobi,
[the Haddah Mullah's village, tomorrow
: afternoon (Friday). The defeat of the
Mullah, it is hoped, will have a great
: effect upon all the surrounding tribes
.men, as he is the leading spirit of mis
chief in the Mohmound country.
STUCK TANKS
No Longer Threaten the Wine Men's
Profits
OAKLAND. Sept. 23.—Prof. Perry
Haine of the Vitlcultural depart
ment of the State University has just
i eturned from Fresno, where he has been
experimenting with a wine cooler which
was invented at the agricultural experi
ment station at the university, and
which bids fair to revolutionize the wine
industry of California.
An advantage afforded by this inven
tion is that it is a State one, andi is ab
solutely free to all wine makers. The
idea is to reduce the temperature and
control the fermentation of the wines,
and this has been accomplished, so the
professor says.
The Invention, if it be proved as prac
ticable as is predicted, will preclude any
more "stuck tanks," or "unsound" wine.
Antiseptics will no longer be necessary
and the discarding of them will remove
a menace to public health. A naturally
pure, instead of an artificially pure, wine
will be the actual benefit that the inno
vation will introduce.
A GHASTLY FIND
Pieces of Corpse Left by Dogs and
Buzzards
LAMAR. Mo., Sept. 23—The badly de
composed body of a man was found yes
terday on the farm of J. W. Robinson,
about three miles southeast of here. The
body was in a horrible state, as buzzards
had eaten part of the flesh from the
bones and dogs had torn the arms and
legs from the body and they lay scat
tered around. An examination disclosed
four bullet holes in the back of the head,
two in the back and one in the shoulder.
The face was disfigured and-the body
has not been identified. People in the
neighborhood claim they heard the shots
fired late Monday afternoon and heard
a man cry, "Oh. I give up."
From papers found on Uie corpse it is
thought he was a partner of the man
who was murdered near this city the
same night. The indications are both
crimes were committed by the same
person. No one has been able to iden
tify the body.

Power of San Francisco, assemblyman
from the Thirtynsecond. district, occu
pies a cell in the county Jail here on a
criminal charge. He was arrested on
a warrant sworn out by M. J. Murray of
the Bay View livery stable, charging him

On Sept. 15th he hired a horse and buggy
for hair a day, representing himself as
a collector for a cigar house. He i»as

Associated Press Special Wire.
TANGIER, Morocco, Sept. 23— The
United States crusier San Francisco,
flagship of the European squadron,
which arrived here on Tuesday last to
investigate and obtain redress if neces
sary for the reported flogging of United
States citizens at Mogador and support
the promised settlement of former claims
of the United States against Morocco,
left this port today. It Is stated here that
if the claims of the United States are not
settled within a reasonable time a sriuad
ron of United States war vessels will be
sent to Morocco.
The sultan of Morocco has sent an
army corps to punish the Kifilans for
their several recent acts of piracy.
NOT PUNITIVE
WASHINGTON, Sept. 23.—The San
Francisco, with Admiral Selfridge
aboard, arrived today at Gibraltar from
Tangier, and it was stated at the navy
department that she would probably
start eastward, cruising slowly up the
Mediterranean until she re-ached the
coast of Syria. If she had any puni
tive mission in view when she crossed
the Straits of Tangiers the fact was
carefully concealed al the navy depart
ment.
The former claims referred to in the
cable dispatch were based upon the
maltreatment of certain native servants
of an American and their prevention
from doing business in Morocco. Under
the provisions of the extra territorial
law which governs in such semi-bar
barous countries of Africa and Asia,
resident Americans and Europeans are
privileged to take under the protection
of their nationality a limited number of
native servants, and this privilege has
been construed to permit business men
to engage traders in their interest.
Some months ago some of the clerks
of an American trading in a town near
Tangiers were set upon, beaten and rob
bed, of their employer's money and goods.
This happened before the residence of
the principal functionary of the place.
Complaint was made to the Moroccan
government by L'nited States Consul-
General Burke, but without effect. He
thereupon notified the statedepartment,
and at his instance the United States
steamship Raleigh was sent to Tangiers.
The effect upon the sultan was imme
diate. He caused the arrest of the
Moors supposed to have been the per
petrators of the assault and promised
restitution of the money lost. The
Raleigh afterwards cruised along the
coast of Morocco well to the eastward,
and. in his last report to the state de
partment Consul-General Burke stated
that her presence had done much to
cause the natives to respect the United
States flag ar.d to prevent a recurrence
of the outrage.
Late this afternoon a long cablegram
was dispatched from the navy depart
ment, and it is possible that it contained
instructions to Admiral Selfridge to co
operate further with Consul-General
Burke in case he meets with opposition
ln his efforts to secure protection for
American interests there.

PITTSBURG, Sept. 23.—A bill In
equity was filed today asking for a re

INQUEST BEGAN
Over the Bodies of the Massacred
Miners
HAZLETON, Pa., Sept. 23.—Coroner
McKee this afternoon began the inquest
into the deaths of the score of striking
miners who were ehot by the posse of
deputy sheriffs at Latimer. A two hours'
session was held, during which a score
of witnesses were examined. Nearly
all the testimony adduced was a repeti
tion of that brought out at the hearing
of the deputies at Wilkesbarre. Most of
the witnesses were foreigners, strikers
who were on the march when halted by
the deputies' deadly The hear
ing will be resumed tomorrow.
The strike situation remains un
changed today except for the return to
work of those Harwood miners who w r ere
afraid to go back yesterday. Every col
liery in the region worked and there was
not the slightest disorder anywhere.
The question of the withdrawal of the
militia remains undetermined, but that
it will begin before the end of the week
is felt by those at headquarters to be
almost a certainty.
Austrian Politics
VIENNA, Sept. 23.—A series of mo
tions were offered in the reichsrath to

lic meetings. The German Radicals and
the Schoenerner want him impeached
for prohibiting a meeting of German
Bohemians at Egar, Bohemia, and they
call for the impeachment of Count Glies
ohpach, minister of justice, Dr. Bilinski,
minister of finance, and Baron Glanz
Deicha, minister of commerce, for an
alleged violation of their ministerial
powers by the issuance of a decree
authorizing the official use of the Czech
language in Bohemia.

THE STILL ABDUCTION
AGAIN LEADS TO TALK OF
LYNCHING
The Wronged Woman Driven by Pear
of Death to Exculpate Her
Assailants
WA.RRENSBURG, Mo., Sept. 23 —
Sensational charges are made as a result
o£ the alleged abduction of Mrs. Still,
a young farmer's wife, who is alleged
to have been taken from her husband by
two young men of this county and held
a prisoner by them for nearly a week.
Later developments have deterred Pros
ecuting Attorney Bradley from releas
ing the prisoners, Jackson and McKee
han, who are charged with having ab
ducted the woman, as he believes that
had he released them, both would have
been lynched.
On Sunday last Prosecuting Attorney
Bradley was taken into the woods by
friends of the two culprits and there
he saw the Still woman in apparent rev
elry with a crowd of young men, and
was told by her that she had left her
husband- voluntarily and would not re
turn to him. This fact at first prompted
him to release the prisoners.
Mrs. Still and her husband are to
gether again at the home of relatives at
Knobnoster, and yesterday she told tho
Prosecuting Attorney a new story of the
affair. She states that the two men
who took her from her husband on the
high road on the 13th inst. kept her a
prisoner two days in an abandoned cabin
in the woods, and then sent her to her
mother's home at Sulphur Springs.
After the arrest of Jackson and Mc-
Keehan she says two men claiming to
be the Sheriff of Johnson county and his
deputy, came to her mother's house and
told her that her husband' was under
arrest for shooting at some men and
that her evidence was necessary to keep
him out of the penitentiary. She went
with them, she says, and was compelled
by them, under fear of her life, to fur
nish the Sunday scene ln the woods and
tell the story she told.
The greatest excitement prevails
throughout the county, and the prelim
inary trial of Jackson and McKeehan
on Monday next at Leeton promises to
be followed by more startling events, for
talk of a lynching is common.
ECKELS EATS
A Good Dinner Inclines Him to
Optimism
DENVER, Sept. 23.—Comptroller of
the Currency James H. Eckles was the
guest of an honorary banquet given this
evening at the Brown Palace hotel by
the Denver Clearing House association.
Over 100 distinguished citizens of Colo
rado, bankers, statesmen and others
whose names are associated with the
upbuilding of this city and the state,
I were present.
Comptroller Eckler made an after
dinner speech in which close attention
was paid by his hearers, and at its close
h« was warmly applauded.
Mr. Eckles began by emphasizing the
fact that citizens of all parts of the
country are actuated by the same spirit
—a desire- for the good of the whole
country, and that no matter how fierce
the fight between partisans may be
■ waged, there is no danger of its weaken
ing the foundations of the republic. He
plead for a continuation of the feeling
of mutual confidence so long main
tained between the east and the west.
Mr. Eckles closed with a prophecy that
the country ls now entering upon an
era of renewed prosperity ln. which east,
west, north and south alike will partic
ipate.
The Webster Murder
SPOKANE, Wash., Sept. 23.—The
Webster murder case will go to the jury,
tomorrow. Rapid progress was made
today. Arguments were presented both
by the state and defense and when the
, court adjourned this evening the argu
ment was complete with the exception

summing up by the state. The assist
ant prosecuting attorney referred to the
Durrant case today, but this was ob
jected to by the counsel for the defense
and the court sustained the objection.
BANNOCK BUCKS
Champion the Cause of a Truant
Girl
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.—According
to a report received by the commissioner
of Indian affairs from Lieut Hall, acting
agent for the Indians on the Fort Hal!
reservation, ln Idaho, that reservation
recently has been the scene of a quite
lively skirmish between the Indian po
lice and about seventy-five of the young
Bannock bucks. The encounter grew
out of an effort on. the part of the po
lice to restore a young Indian girl to
the agency school, which she had left
without permission of the school au
thorities. This the young men under
took to prevent and. while they were not
successful they beat some of the police
quite badly before the latter accom
plished their work of returning the girl
to her place in the school. The officers
found themselves unable to arrest "the
Insubordinate bucks and Lieut. Irwin
asks the detail of a troop of cavalry to
the agency for this purpose. The secre
tary of the Interior has forwarded this
request to the war department with his
favorable endorsement.
