Chicago, May 10. Tho attorney and
relatives of Adolph Luottgort, charged
with murdering his wife, are charging
Inspector Schaack with manufactur

that tho rings in tho possession of
Chief Schaack and which it is assorted
wero found in tho vat in which tho
theory is Mrs. Luettgort's body was
disintegrated, wcro not tho proporty
of his mother. Tho boy says that
Schaack tried for hours to bulldozo
him into an identification of the rings.
W. A. Vincent, Luottgert's lawyer,
says that Schaack had the rings mado
for tho purpose of fastening the mur
der on tho sausage maker.

hours, said last evening that it would
requiro at least two days to mako way
with tho flesh of an adult human body
with tho most powerful chemicals
known to his prosession.
A most "growsomo discovery was
mado Wednesday morning when tho
largo vat adjoining tho ono in which
tho gold ring was found was over
turned. Under this vat was found a
largo piece of wrapping-paper, clotted
with blood, as well as a number of
particles of bono and flesh. Tho most
startling find, however, was a bunch
of light brown hair, which, it is
claimed, is in every respect liko that
of Mrs. Luettgcrt Tho bloody im
print of a man's hand was also found
on tho factory door.

Washinoton, May 19. Secretary
Sherman has formally notified tho
British government through Sir Julian
Pauncefote, the ambassador, that the
United States senate having failed to
ratify tho treaty providing for general
arbitration, that document has failed.
Tho secretary was unable formally to
inform Sir Julian of the reasons why
tho senate had rejected the treaty; in
deed, he is in the dark himself in that
matter, for he has no notice save the
statement of a vote in tho senate, of
which ho must take cognizance. Of
course it is actually known to all
parties just why tho treaty was ob
jected to, but tho absence of official
objections prevents any attempt being
made to meet the objections in tho
amended treaty.

committee on international expositions

resolution providing for tho appropria
tion of 550,000 for proper representa
tion of this government at the Paris
exposition of 1000.
Washington, May 10 Fourth As
sistant Postmaster General liristow
has inaugurated a new policy as to the
establishmentof post offices. Tholast
administration exercised a very con
servative policy in dealing with this
question, holding that there wero al
ready too many offices in operation,
and that it would bo better as a gon
sral proposition not to havo tho
offices too close together. Tho
present regime has determined to
establish offices wherever any
reasonable amount of business
can be secured, with the idea of
accommodating as many people as pos
sible. While some attention is being
paid to the rule that offices generally
Should not bo closer together than
threo miles, this is not a fixed limit
and many exceptions have been made.
The scheme is to provide mail facilities
wherever thare is a sufficient number
of people or amount of people to mako
it pay, such questions as, locating near
a star or other route, however, of
course figuring in the matter.
