Chicago, May 18. A. war of exterm
ination against sympathetic strlkos in
the building trades has been declared
by a combination of Chicago con
tractors, omploycrs and other busi
ness men. A serious conflict with or
ganized labor Is feared before tho cru
sade is ended.
Tho employers say they will make
every effort to attain the desired end
through co-operation and arbitration
with the building trades council and
affiliated unions, but that if peaceful
means fail, general lockouts, wage re
ductions and even legal proceedings
may bo resorted to in order to forco
tho labor organizations to terms.
Steps were taken Monday toward
the organization of tho employers who
oro to enter a finish fight against the
"labor trust." The new combination
will represent many millions of dol
lars invested in business, giving em
ployment to tens of thousands of
skilled workmen. It will be organized
on the same general lines as the build
ing trades couucil, with two delegates

Nqttio llello Smith. Her mother told
tier to toil him thut she would not see
lilm any more, nnd that it would be
useless for him to call. Miss Smith,
liowovcr, is said to havo loved young
Thornton dovotedly.
"It would bo unkind, mother," sho
replied, "not to see him this once, and
L will simply toll him tho truth."
Sho went downstairs and stepped in
to tho parlor. At the door with his
hat in his hand stood tho lovor. "Net

Intond to marry meV"
"No," was tho reply. "I lovo my
father, too, and as long as he with
holds his consent I will not marry
you."
Without a word tho young man
dropped his hat from his nervous
lingers, stood silent for a moment,
and then drew a revolver from his
pocket and turned tho glittering muz
tie toward his heart. A shot rang out
and tho young man fell heavily to the
door.
Hardly had tho weapon fallen from
his stiffening fingers, however, than
sho was kneeling at his side imploring
aim to speak to her.
A servant was sent after a basin of
hot water, and then, as his life blood
ran out and stained the carpet, sho
supported his head upon her lap and
bathed his temples. Tho clotted blood
ivas washed away ns it oozed from tho
wound in his breast. Ho tried to speak
but his strength was rapidly dimin
ishing and It was apparent that he was
Jying.
In tho meantime tho greatest con
fusion reigned in tho palatial homo of
tho millionaire railroad magnate. Mr.
I Smith, who was nearly prostrated
! with grief, sent an order to the rail
road office directing that a special
train should bo sent out at once for
Lexington to hurry tho mother and
two sisters of the dying man to his
bedside. Tho fast stiffening body of
the young man was tenderly lifted by
tho servants nnd carried up-stairs to
the boudoir of Miss Smith.
The engineer of the special train had
orders to make no stops except for wa
ter, and within three hours the train
pulled in at tho Loth street depot. A
carriage was in waiting and conveyed
the mother and grief-stricken sisters to
the bedside of the dying man.

1'muoo AVltli Grcoco Is IUcllculcd.
Domokos, May IS. Tho Turkish at
tack on tho Greek right wing began
at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon, but tho
flank attacks are considered to be
feints and it is believed the main at
tack of tho Turks will bo made upon
tho Greek center, where Crown Prince
Constantino is in command.
Two Greek cannon are doing great
execution on tho principal Turkish
column, which is advancing through
tho hills. The Turkish infantry at
several points is in contact with tho
Greeks.
It Is believed here that tho attack on
Gen. Smolensk!, near Almyros, is only
i strategic operation, and tho Turks
will endeavor to cut between the two
Greek armies, occupy the road leading
to tho Otliry mountains, and thus cut
oil the retreat of the crown prince.
Losdo.v, May IS. Tho Daily Tele
graph's special correspondent with tho
lurkish forces in ihessaly Monday
night, says: "Edhom Pasha has mov
ed on from point to point and finally
occupied Domoskos. Tho Creeks havo
sustained a crushing defeat.
London, May IS. Tho conditions
proposed by the porta as the terms of
peace with CJreeco have been freely
discussed in tho lobbies of parliament
Monday, and the idea of tho retroces
sion of Thessaly and of such an in
demnity as is already suggested is rid
iculed as impractieablo and absurd.
At the outsido an indemnity of 3,000.
000 or (1,000,000 and a slight strategii
rectification of frontier are considerei
s likely to be the terms finally settled
upon.
Athens, May IS. Dispatches sent
from Domokos at 7 p m. Monday say
that tho Greek loft wing has fallen
back toward the centre before thrice
the number of Turks. The battle con
tinued after sunset, but, despite tho
j'ieldiug ot the left wing, the Turks
were finally repulsed. Gen. Mavromi
jhalis was wounded.
A dispatch sent from Domokos at
noon by tho way of Lamia says:
Thirty-fiva thousand Turks, infant
ry, cavalry and artillery, have at
tacked the Greek lino at several points
of the left wing and the center with cv
view of penetrating southward and
surrounding Domokos. Largo forces
ire also attacking Gen. Smolensk!.
The most intense excitement pre
vails here. All the cabinet ministers
have been assembled since noon at the
ministry of marine, whero the dis
patches from tho front are boing re
ceived. Tho gravity of tho situation
;an not bo overestimated.
London, May IS. Tho Daily Chron
icle's correspondent at Athens scuds
tho following ofdcial account of tho
lighting Monday:
"Over 50,000 Turks simultaneously
and continuously attacked our whole
line. Our artillery and infantry did
splendid work. Twice all the regi
ments of the enemy wavered and lie 1,
though their attack was soon renewed
with fresh forces, which in turn ve
wero able to hurl back.
The stubborn resistance and splen
did vigor of our troops finally com
pelled the enemy to give way alto
gether. All the attacks on our lelt
were similarly repulsed.
On our right wo did not fare so well.
Tho first attack of the enemy was re
pulsed but thoy massed in immense
forces for the next attack. Our first
line wnvorod and was broken; and tho
wing would have been turned but for
tho timely arrival of the reserves.
"Still tho enemy had gained ground
which it was then impossible to regain,
and we, therefore, fell back on Uousi.
"Tho Turks had 50,000 troops, with
30,000 reserves. Our forco was only
83,000. We havo lost heavily, but the
enemy must havo lost thousands."
Constantinople, May IS. There
was a sudden and unexpected change
in tho political situation shortly be
fore noon Tuesday. Russia quietly
showed her hand, and thereby forced
Germany and Turkey out of the game,
to all inteuts and purposes. Monday
night and early Tuesday morning Tur
key, supported by Germany, was prac
tically defying Russia, France, Aus
tria, Great Britain and Italy, insisting
upon tho annotation of Thessaly in
addition to hugo war indemnity, and
seemingly was determined to march
upon Athens. Tho ministers
rocolved official advices from
Sofia Tuesday announcing that
orders had been issued for the
partial mobilization of tho Bulgarian
army possibly at tho instigation of
Russia. There wns a. hurried consul
tation of tho ministers. Tho war party
was for further defiance, but in tho end
pacific councils seemed to have pre
vailed, for, at 11:35 n. m., orders were
tolegraphcd to Edhem Pasha, tho Turk
ish commander-in-chief in Thessaly, to
coaso hostilities.
The peace negotiations will now be
undertaken in real earnest nnd tbo
Greeks will most likoly bo spared any
further humiliation.
Athens. May IS. Tho Turks havo

THE DETAILS
Of the Horrible Death of Mrs.
Luettgert at Chicago.
Her Dead Body Cut to Pieces in a
Sausage Mill and Cremated.
The Tollce Snr Her Wealthy Husband Is
Undoubtedly the Marderer Qunrrels
lletween Them Hud lleeu Frriaent
He Declares Shu Is still Alivr. ji.
Chicago, May IS. Adolph Luett
gert, the wealthy sausage maker, un
der arrest on the charg'o of strangling
his wife and then throwing tho body
Into a vat filled with a powerful acid,
for the supposed purpose of destro3lug
evidenco of tho alleged crime, was ar
raigned in police court Tuesday morn
ing. The caso was continued until
next Saturday. A writ of habeas cor
pus will be applied for.
Tho solution of the mystery as a
murder was reached only after careful
and conscientious work on ;ho part of
the officials.
Mrs. Luettgert disappeared from her
homo tho night of Mu3- 1. Sho was last
soon alone by her husband and Mrs.
Amelia Kaiser, a neighbor. This was
at 10 o'clock in the evening, bho was
in good spirits, and there app:ared to
be no indication that she contemplated
suicide. "
Sho dropped completely out of sight
that night, but tho husband failed to
ronort tho matter to the police until
May 7.
It was given out that she had prob
ably committed suicide on account of
tho failure of her husband's business.
But tho officers becamo suspicious
They made a careful search of tho
sausage factory, which is at Diversey
street and the Chicago & Northwestern
tracks. In the boiler room the- found
the piece of corut steel and the torn
pieces of dress
Mrs. Wilhelmena Mueller, 158 Cleve
land avenue, sister of Mrs. Luettgert,
her daughter, Miss Amelia Mueller,
neighbors and others told o violent
quarrels which had taken place be
tween tho pair.
It is said there was a quarrel tho
uight Mrs. Luettgert disappeared. The
details of this are not known. This
and other circumstantial evidence is
what led to the arrest.
Inspector Schaack thinks that after
tney were lett alone that evening
Luettgert lured her into the sausage
factory, near the house, on some pre
text. When she was once inside, it is be
lieved she was killed. Tnen, accord
ing to tho police theory, the body was
stripped, cut into pieces in the sausage
mill, so thut it would be more easily
cremated, and then cast into tho fur
nace. Her clothing, it is alleged, was
burned in the same place.
"I do not feel ready to say what was
the motive, said Inspector Schaack.
"Nor can I tell all the details of tho
method in which he disposed of the
boly. I feel sure of my man, though."
Luettgert declared Tuesday morn
inc, after being removed to the city
jail, that his wife is stillj alive, that
she is wcakminded and has wandered
from home. Luottgert's first wife
died in 1SS1 and there havo been whis
pers, the police say, that all about her
death has not been explained.
'1 here is another ease on record in
which Luettgert figured. On Septem
ber '.', 1ST'.'. Hugh McGowan was found
dead in Luottgart's barn. McGowan's
head was cut open and a plug of to
bacco crowded down his throat. Tho
coroner's jury brought in a verdict of
apoplexy. James McGowan, tho dead
man's son, made an effort for more
thorough investigation, but he says he
was thwarted by friends of Lcuttgert.
