LUETGERT UGLY,
BUT CONFIDENT
Does Not Expect to Be
Convicted on Testi
timony Given.
Now the Prosecution Will As
sail the Evidence of the
Defense.
An Attempt to Be Made to Demolish
the Stories That the Missing
Wife Was Seen In Wisconsin.
CHICAGO, 111., Oct. s.— Tbe end of the
famous Luetgert trial is nearer than was
thought. The delense to-day rested its
case, and there i*> nothing to come but the
rebuttal evidence ol the State and the
arguments of the attorneys — probably
about two weeks in all. The State has
eighty witnesses to place upon the stand,
but State's Attorney Dsneen said this af
ternoon that iv most rases their evidence
will be short, and that he will get through
with them in a hurry. He expects to
demolish the stories offered by the wit
nesses for the defense that Mrs. Luetgert
was seen around Kenosha and Like
Z lrlch, Wis., within a lew days after the
murucr is said to have been committed,
and to furnish other testimony that will
in a great measure hold up tbe side oi the
prosecution.
Soon after court convene! ex-Judge
V.ncent and Attorney Phalen asked per
mission to consult with their client
privately. Judge Tuthill said they
might do so, and Luetgert and bis law
yers retired to discuss whether or not
Luetcert should go on the witness-stand.
Ex- Judge Vincent vigorously opposed the
(suggestion. He pointed out to Luetgert
that William Charles, his runner, had
told practically the story that Luetgert
would tell.
Attorney Phalen was inclined to favor
Luetgert's desire to go upon the stand.
lie thought the big sausage-maker might
be able to explain some things more
satisfactorily than other witnesses had
done. He also believed that the absence
from the witness-stand of the principal
actor in the great tragedy might preju
dice him in the eyes of the jury. Attor
ney Pnalen was willing to admit tte
logic of ex-Judge Vincent's position, and
Luetgert said he would abide by his coun
sels' advice.
When the lawyers and Luetgert returned
from their consultation Luetgcrt's counte
nance bore tho expression of a mariyr.
The greatest disappointment of the trial
to him was apparently the fact that he
was not to be permitted to testify in his
own behalf and address the jury as he had
said dozens of times he would do.
The first witness called to-day was Henry
J. Cox of the United States Weather Bu
reau. He came with charts nnd data to
provs that the night of May 1, 1897, was
cloudy in Chicago and vicinity. This evi
dence was brought out by the defense to
counteract the testimony of witnesses who
had sworn that they stood across the
street at 11 o'clock on the night of May 1
and saw Luetgert and his wiie walking
toward the sausage factory.
Mrs. Mary Charles, wife of William
Charles, Luetgert's business partner, tes
tified tuat upon several occasions Mrs.
Luetgert ha_ said to her: "lam „oing
away. My husband has failed in business
and people will now point their finger at
me and say, 'Sue is the wife of the
sausage-maker who failed.' I cannot
stand that." On May 1 the witness said
she saw Mrs. Luetgert for the last time.
It was about 11 o'clock in the morning.
Mrs. Luetgert again said she wan coins
away and repeated that she could not
stand tbe disgrace the failure bad brought
upon her family. "She turned away and
I never saw her again," concluded the
witness.
Mrs. Charles failed to identify tho rings
found in the vat at the sausage factory as
those worn by Mrs. Luetgert.
Luetgert is confident that he will be
acquitted. While apparently regretting
that he bad not had the opportunity to
tell his story to lhe jury the big sausage
maker said he was satisfied that tne jury
would not convict him un ier the evidence
presented. Luetgert was in an ujtly
humor during the afternoon and not in
clined to talk much.
CONTENuiNG FORCES CLASH.
An Interesting War in Progress Be
tween Rival Railroads for
a Right of Way.
CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo., Oct. The
rieht of way troubles Between the Flor
ence and Cripple Creek and the Midland
Terminal railroads culminated to-day in
a collision between the contending forces.
Superintendent Ridgeway and Chief En
gineer. Stuart had charge of the former
forces and Superintendent Waters had
charge of the Midland Terminal. Mr.
Waters had 300 men under him laying
tracks over the disputed territory already
covered by the lines of tbe Florence and
Cripple Creek. Superintendent Ridgeway
had his rolling stock, which he backed
into the opposition, who were laying rails
across the company's tracks.
The exciting occurrences took place at
Strong Mine, which played such an im
portant part in the strike a few years a^o.
When the section cf the Midland Ter
minal had been lowered into place Mr.
Stuart mounted a boxcar and signaled one
of his engineers to buck a F. C. and C.
train down the siding alongside where the
others were at work. The engineer started
to back down the siding, but the others
began to throw ties and rocks on the track,
blocking the way of the train. The engi
neer continued to ran backward, and
finally hurled his train over the obstruc
tions and into a number of empty freight
cars which stood on the siding. Haifa
dozen were derailed and smashed, the
trucks being piled on the rocks and the
boxes thrown across the newly constructed
track. In the melee that ensued Chief
Engineer Stuart drew his gun and lire I
into the crowd. He was soon afterward
arrested for attempt to kill, ana Superin
tendent Ridgeway was held «s accessory, j
A special train from the springs with an '
injunction, arriving at 6o' clock, prevented
further trouble for the time. More trou
ble is anticipated.

HENRY GEORGE
READY TO RUN
Publicly Accepts the
Nomination for
Mayor.
Greeted by a Great Assemblage
of People at the Cooper
Union.
All Candidates Are Active and Poli
tics In Greater New York Is
Decidedly Interesting:.
NEW YORK. N. V. t Oct. s.— Henry
George accented the nomination for
Mayor of Greater New York at Cooper
Union to-night. It was in the same hall
and before many of the same people that
he accepted the nomination eleven year
ago. In 1886 he received 63,000 votes. To*
night**, meeting was the greatest outpour
ing of the people seen in this city during
the present campaign. The doors were
opened at 7:15 o'clock, and in less than
two minutes every feat in the big hail was
occupied, and the ais es, as far as the po
lice permitted, were crowded. Hundreds
were turned away during the next li.ieen
minu'.ts, and by 8 o'clock several thou
sands, unable to gain admission, assem
bled outsiile and held open-air meetings
in the plaza, which were addressed ba
lneal speakers. Henry George's appear
ance before the meeting was the signal
for an outburst of cheering that lasted
three minutes. Mr. George said :
"Fellow-Democrats, men who voted last
year for William Jennings Bryan: I -ac
cept your nomination. From now on un
til election closes I am your?. Aye, and
after election, too. lam a Democrat.
"I cannot divide into parts the ques
tions which 1, as a citizen, have to deal
with. For the same reasons that 1 oppose
this monstrous tariff in all its forms; for
the same reason that I would vote
wherever I could for the utter abolition of
that tariff — for that same reason 1 am op
posed to the interference with individual
liberty which you see here in New York.
I am a Democrat in the Jeflersonian sense.
Because the Chicago platform represented
the idea of giving the great common peo
ple what belongs to them I stood for it,
voted for it and was sorrier than ever that
it was defeated."
Mr. George declared that the nomination
was unsought and not desired, but that he
accepted in the name of the real Democ
racy.
Mr. George spoke for twenty-five min
ute*-. Immediately after the conclusion
of his speech the meeting was declared
adjourned and the crowd quietly left the
ball.
AIL CAMIiIIIATES ACTIVE.
It Is Relieved That Roth Low and Tracy
Hill Hems in in th' Race.
NEW YORK, N. V., Oct s.— As the period
during which all nominations must be filed j
draws to an end the impression is gaining I
that both Low and Tracy are to remain in !
the race. Their respective supporters say !
so and what little betting there is md!- I
I cates the existence of this belief.
Quii:g, stenklng for Piatt, says General'
Tracy will be in it at the finish. He also ;
says that a full county ticket will be I
named Thursday night Low's supporters
are equally assertive of his permanency as
a candidate.
The heavy Republican cannonading of j
the campaign will begin Friday night, i
when General Tracy makes his first I
speech. Many distinguished Republicans
will be present. Ex-President Harrison,
among others, will speak.
The Republican fight is acknowledged
as aggressive, and Tracy's friends are in
creasing in numbers and enthusiasm daily.
It is announced from headquarters that
Tracy's battle will be brill. and fierce.
John C. Sheehan, leader of Tammany
Hall, denied to-day that there is any fight
between Croker and himself. He said:
"I have not thought of resigning my
place as leader, and there is no reason why
I should resign. My relations with Mr.
Croker are entirely friendly, and all re
ports of a quarrel between us are without
foundation.". . .'*_
His denial of the report that be was
going to get cut did not alleviate the
gloom at Tammany Hall to any extent,
and it was evident (rom guarded ex
pressions of the lew district leaders pres
ent that there was no peace or harmony in
the organization. *■.... *jr
CONVENT 10 V OF BOTTLERS.
Delegates From San Francisco Try
ing to Secure a Law in California
for Proper Registration.
BOSTON, Mass., Oct. s— The ninth an
nual convention of the American Bot
tlers' Association was opened here to-day.
Several San Francisco delegates informed
The Call correspondent that they are
about to try to secure the enactment of a
law in California for the registration by
the various bottlers ot their property and
its protection under the power of a law,
altnouah efforts to stop the illegal traffic
in registered bottles hai been much en
couraged by enactments of stringent bot
tle laws in *everai States during ;be past
year. This is a growing evil in New Or
leans, but the botileis there ere deter
mined to secure legislation which will
put a stop to it. They are confident that
they can do so in the immediate future.
President Dukehart said to-day:
"If you will examine the legislation of
New York or Maryland or other States,
you will find that the bottlers' legislation
took years belore it arrived at a station of
even comparative succes«, and so also
with the various organizations. It re
quires years o' time before they become
efficient; and so it will le with this law,
but its results, when obtained, will be far
reaching and of the utmost importance in
every respect, so let us strive to obtain it
with all our might and main."
It was voted to hold the next conven
tion in Baltimore.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1897.
SHERIFF WHELAN
TO VISIT MAMMY
The Bell House Will Be
Searched by Officers
This Morning.
The Aged Protectress Still Fails
to Produce Much-Wanted
Kecords.
A Former Partner of the Dead Mil
lionaire Testifies in Behalf
of the Son.
"Mammy" Pleasant Is due to receive
some unwelcome visitors this morning un
less the present plans of Attorney Schooler
miscarry. Judsre Coffey yesterday issued
an order for a search warrant of the Ball
residence, at the corner of Bush and
Octavia streets, at the request of Fred Bell,
who declares that the woman is with
holding certain books which would shed
valuable lieht on the way she has man
aged the funds of the estate of the mil
lionaire in her capacity as the empress of
the household.
The order for the warrant was served on
Sheriff Whelan late last night, and he
promised to see to its execution personally
this morning. Fred Bell and George R.
Eaton will accompany the Sheriff to the
family mansion and assist in the search
for the missing records. Of course it is
not likely that Mammy will be caught
napping, and ii is two to one that the !
Sheriff will have bis pains for nothing.
It was on tbe card» that all this should
have been carried out yesterday, but the
diplomacy and ingenuity ol Fisher Ames
averted the matter at the last moment.
He produced three additional books,
which purported to be the private records
of Mammy Plensant, but, atter a careful
examination of them, young declared
they were not what he wanted, despite
the assertions of Ames that they were the
only books of their kind in existence. So
the search warrant tactics will be resorted
to as a sort of forlorn hope.
Bell had the stand all day yesterday to
relate more of the particulars of the his
tory of his ranching operations. Fisher
Ames attempted to have him admit that
the ring which Mammy Plea-ant had
given him on his nineteenth birthday was
the property of the woman herself, and
not that of Mrs. Bell, as he had stated the
previous day. Bell refused to take the
bait, so the examination drifted into a
dreary recital of his episode at Guthrie
five years age, when, as a schoolboy,
young Bell was arrested on a charge cf at
tempted incendiarism.
Presley C. Hyman, a pioneer and former
partner of Thomas Bell, was called to tell
nis version of the affair, and it turned out
very favorable to the young man. Hyman
said he bad been asked by the millionaire
to proceed to Oklahoma and investigate
the affair. He found that young Bell was
on the verge* of starvation and under sur
veillance of the United States Marshal.
He had been attending a private school
kept by one Mrs. Hardy, and it seemed to
Hyman thnt the charge against the voting
man was due more to her efforts "to ex
tract money out of a rich father" than
any attempt at crime on the part of the
boy. The charge was dismissed, and
Fred was then taken to Atlanta ana
placed in a military academy, where he
remained almost to the death of his
father.
The case will go on this afternoon.
MRS. McGREW WINS $5000
How a Life Insurance Policy
May Have to Be Paid
Twice.
Peculiar Provisions of the Hawaiian
Law on the Subject of
Divorce.
Judge Bahrs of the Superior Court yes
terday banded down his decision in the
somewhat noted case of Mrs. Alphonsine
McGrew against the Mutual Life Insur
ance Company of New York, awarding
the plaintiff a judgment for $5000, the
amount of the insurance on the life ot her
late husband, Henri G. McGrew.
Mrs. McGrew formerly lived in Hawaii,
and while there her husband sued for a
divorce on the ground of adultry, pending
the trial of which charge she applied for
funds for her support from the husband,
but this relief was denied on the ground
that he had no funds. She therefore left
Honolulu in April and came to San Fran
cisco, where she intended to make her
residence ond where she has since actually
resided, bringing wilb her the policy on
her husband tile, which policy was at
that time her personal property.
There is a law of Hawaii which says
that if a person is proved guilty of
adultery and a divorce is granted on that
ground the innocent spouse is entitled
to all the personal and real properly of
tbe offending party. On this theory it
was ar ued by the defendants that Mrs.
McGrew had no properly in the policy of
insurance, because the trie hod passed to
the husband when he secured a divorce on
biblical grounds.
Counsel for Mrs. McGrew proved that
the divorce was not granted until August,
1894, and he contended that when she
came to San Francisco in April of that
year she placed herself ami ii -r property
interests under the protection of the laws
of this State: as the decree of divorce had
not been entered against her her properly
in the insurance policy was not disturbed,
and no subsequent act of the Hawaiian
court could divest her of her rights.
Judge Bahrs accepted this view of the
matter and gave judgment in favor of the
plaintiff for the full amount.
After the death of Mr. McGrew suit was
instituted in Honolu.u against the com
pany, aiid the value of the policy was col
lected there and pxid tothe representa
tives of the estate of the dead man, so if
the decree given by Judge Bahrs is sus
tained the defendants will have to pay
this policy twice.

J. W. Foley, a drummer and collector
for Simon Bacbman & Co., wholesale
cigar-dealers, 102 Battery street, was
booked at the City Prison yesterday morn

an exemplary life for a few months. Then
he spent most of bis time am) money in

. They soon obtained evidence of the
fact that tie was a defaulter snd the case

HEW to-dat:
NEW MEDICAL DISCOVERY.
A Positive Cure for Dyspepsia.
This may read a- though we were put-
ting it a little strong, because it is
generally thought by the majority of peo-
ple that Dyspepsia in its chronic form is
incurable, or practically so. But we have
long since shown that Dyspepsia is cur-
able, nor is it such a difficult matter as at
first appears.
The trouble with Dyspeptics is that
they are continually dietine, starving
themseJves or going to opposite extremes,
or else deluging the already overburdened
stomach with . "bitters," "after dinner
pills'," etc., which invariably increase the
difficulty, even if in some cases they do
give a slight temporary relief. Such
treatment of the stomach simnly makis
matters worte. What the stomach wants
is a rest. Now, how can the stomach be-
come rested, recuperated, and at the same
time the body nourished and sustained.
This is the great secret and this is also
, the secret of the uniform success of
I .-Hi i' s Dyspepsia Tablets. This is a
' comparatively new remedy, but its suc-
cess and popularity leave no doubt as to
its merits. ". - *
The Tab els will dipest the food any
way. regardless of condition o! stomach.
The suflerer from dyspepsia, according
to directions, is to eat an abundance oi
good, wholesome food and use the tablets
before and alter each meal, and the result
wul be that the food will be digested no
matter how bad your dyspepsia may be,
because, as before slated, the tablets will
digest the food even if .the stomach is
wholly inactive. To illustrate our mean-
ing plainly if you lake 1800 grains oi
meat, eggs or ordinary food and place it
in a temperature of 93 degrees, and put
with it one of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
it will digest the meat or eggs almost as
perfectly as if the meat was inclosed with-
in the stomach.
The stomach may be 1 ever so weak, yet
these tablets will perform the work ot di-
gestion and the body and brain will be
ptoperly nourished and at the same time
a radical, lasting cure of dyspepsia will be
made because the much abused stomach
will be given, to some extent, a much
needed rest. Your druggist will tell you
that of the many remedies advertised to
cure dyspepsia none of them has civ.n so
complete and general satisfaction as
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and not least
in importance in these hard times is the
fact that they are also the cheapest end
give the most good for the least money.

IT HAS MADE A NATION STRONGER.
Nothing since the discovery of Electricity has brought so
much real good to human kind as the invention of this wonder-*-,
ful Electric Belt. It has brought to suffering humanity relief '
from pain, restoration of manly vigor, health and happiness.
HEALTH IS WEALTH.
A remedy that will fill the body with glowing warmth,
charging the nerves with life, reviving dormant functions and
causing the blood to bound through the veins, will bring health.
DR. SANDEN'S ELECTRIC BELT
Will do this. It has done it for thousands, and many hundreds
of grateful letters have been received testifying to its wonderful
work. There is not a hamlet or camp in the West but has one
or more cures by it. It is an end to drugs. It saves the stomach
from poisonous compounds, and is worth its weight in gold.
'•My house homed down and my Sanden Belt was burned. loss was $'Jsoo,but I felt worse over
the loss of the Belt than I did for tne hi use,*' said a ca ier on Dr. Sanden vesterday.
