CHICAGO, Oct. B.— Chairman Cald-
Tiell, of the Western Passenger associ
ation, reports that the markets in all
the large centers of the association is
in an eminently satisfactory condition.
During the early part of the present
week, the chairman caused thorough
tests to be made of the market, and
found only two tickets in the hands of
the brokers at Minneapolis, and they
were over different roads. At St. Paul
not a ticket could be found, and similar
conditions prevailed at Kansas City,
where the rates for a long time have
been in a state of demoralization. The
chairman says that in all parts of the
territory of the association it is evi
dent that an honest effort is being
made to preserve rates and to keep
tickets out of the hands of the brokers.
The executive committee of the
"Western Passenger association has de
cided to make some changes in the
form of the interchangeable mileage
ticket used by the roads. It is expected
that the change will simplify the hand
ling of it, and, at the same time, make
It more convenient for the holders. The
certificate is to be given the form .of
an. envelope, with coupon attachment,
the coupon to be retained by th* pas
senger, and the envelope, with the cer
tificate enclosed, to be returned to the
office by the conductor.
' The gross receipts of the Illinois Cen
tral for the month of September are
estimated at $2,299,403, an estimated in
crease of $389,369 over the same month
of last year. For the two months end
ing Aug. 31, the net earnings of the
road were $1,046,090, an increase of

WISCONSIN L< iiiJKH R.VI'KS.
An Ol<l Trouble Appear* on the Sur
face Agra in.
\ It Is now an open secret that the folks
in Chicago are bringing pressure to
bear on the Milwaukee road to tako
out its rates from Wisconsin points on
'lumber shipped to points in Southern
Illinois, although there is little likeli
hood that the move will be successful.
At a meeting held here in St. Paul a
few days ago, where the Interested
roads were represented, the Wisconsin
Central notified the .Milwaukee freight
people that if the present tariff was
not withdrawn, they would make still
greater reductions and would carry the
low rates into Lav Ciaire and Chip
pewa Falls, two points which the Mil
waukee road is trying to protect. The
Milwaukee representatives gave notiev
at this meeting that the road had no
Intention of abrogating- its current
tariff. This action, it was learned yes
terday, was taken notwithstanding th-
fact that some of the Eastern con
nections of the Milwaukee gave that
road notice that unless the obnoxious
tariff was taken out, they will not only
refuse to participate in through tariffs,
but will charge full local rates on all
lumber consigned to them. The South
prn Illinois roads, which are named in
the Milwaukee's joint tariffs, have, it
ir said, repudiated them.
Officials of the Milwaukee state that
the Wisconsin Central will not reduce
rates, but is at present working with
the Milwaukee. They deny any knowl
edge of the 'action of the Eastern lints.
The matter will likely be straightened
out today in Chicago at a meeting of
all the Western lines, when all tariff
since March will be looked over. It
was then that the old association dis
solved, and the new agreement be
comes effective tomorrow. The subject
of lumber rates will probably be the
most important one discussed at the

The passenger representatives of the

they have made whereby established
rates in the territory may be reduced.
Mr. Caldwell states that tests of the

wheat is coming Minneapolis way now to
a greater extent than at any time before

f flßfl FOR AIihPORT
I EXPERT OK BONES FOR LUETGERT
DRESSED DOWN BY PROF.
STATES CASE NOW CLOSED.
LAST EVIDENCE FOR THE PROSE
CUTION SUBMITTED TO THE
MARY SIEMMERING IMPEACHED.
Her Story oil 111 Treatment on the
Part of the Police Proved
CHICAGO, Oct. S.— The evidence of
the prosecution in the trial of Adolph
L. Luetgert is now before the jury.
The state rested its case this after
noon. The closing testimony was of
the same impeaching character that
marked the evidence of the preceding
day. Prof. George Dorsey had his in
ning- during the afternoon session of
the court, and he made matters un
pleasantly warm for Dr. Allport. Prof.
Dorsey could have talked for hours
upon the subject of osteology. He was
primed with bristling facts concerning
bones. But the prosecution confined the
young osteological expert to matters
tending to counteract and refute the
statements made by Dr. Allport, the
chief expert of the defense. Prof. Dor
sey called attention to the fact that
during his examination Dr. Allport had
identified the femur of a gorrilla as
that of a man; that he had identified
the human femur as a hog's femur;
had declared that the sesamoid of a
buffalo was the patella of a dog, and
had given it as his opinion that a piece
of the temporal bone of a shepherd
dog was the temporal of a monkey.
Dr. Allport listened to this evidence
with a half incredulous smile playing
upon his lips. But the evidence was
not productive of anything bordering
on mirth with the attorneys for the
defense. Ex-Judge Vincent cross-ex
amined the witness briefly, without
material benefit, and let him go.
Then Judge Arthur H. Chetlaine was
called to the stand to add the finish
ing touches to the impeachment of
Mary Siemmering. When this young
woman was first arrested and charged
with a guilty knowledge of the dis .->
--pearance of Mrs. Luetgert, her attor
neys applied to Judge Chetlaine for a
writ of habeas corpus. Judge Chet
laine, pitting in chambers, had Mary
Siemmering brought before him and
questioned her. His honor testified to
day that she told him that she had r.ot
made the application for release, but
that her lawyer, Arnold Tripp, had
done so and had set up the charges in
the petition. She told Judge Chetlaine
she had not been mistreated at the po
lice station, and that she had gone <"<
the East Chicago avenue station vol
untarily. She said she was willing
to return there, as she knew she womd
soon be discharged, because she had
done nothing wrong. Owing to •'■>!>,
state of facts, Judge Chetlaine dismiss
ed the petition, and the young woman
returned to the police station.
MART'S STORY DEMOLISHED.
This evidence demolished the story of
Mary Siemmering, who declared, whilj
en the witness stand, that she wis sub
jfcled to indignities at the hands of
Inspector Schaack, Capt. Scfiaettler and
Angelica Schradtr, a nurse, who was
a member of Luetgert's household for
three months, said that the missing
woman was a most affectionate mother.
A sensation was created in the court
when a. woman attired in mourning
garl> ascended to the witness stand
and held up her hand to be sworn.
Toais were in her eyes as she sank into
the witness chair. The woman was
Mrs. Wilhelniir.a Miller, a sister of Mrs.
Luetgert. So (irmly was she impressed
that. Mrs. Luetgert is dead that she
some weeks ago donned a garb of
mourning in memory of her sister. Mrrf.
Miller testified while her brimming eyes
were fixed upon the face of Luetgert.
The- big sausage maker returned the
gaze of his sister-in-law coolly. Mrs.
Miller told of th? kindly disposition of
her sister, and asserted that no mother
was more patient or more kind to her
Fred Miller, neyhew of Luetgert and
Diedrich Bicknesz, a brother of Mrs.
Luetgett, testified to having beer, fre
quent visitors to the home of the Luet
gerts, and to the kindness they had
witnessed Mrs. Luetgert bestow upon
her children. This evidence was call
ed out to combat and impeach the evi
dence of Mary Siemmering and Mrs.
Mary Charles, who testified that Mrs.
Luetgert treated her children cruelly.
With this evidence the state rested.
Judge Tuthill at once adjourned court
until Monday morning, and hurried
away to catch a train for Nashville,
Next Monday. ex-Judge Vincent 4 an
nounced, sir-rebuttal evidence will l>e
put on. The defense will undertake the
unusual task of impeaching a judge.
A witness will be called to testify in
rebuttal to Judge Chetlaine's evid< -nee
as to Mary Siemmering's statement to
him. The witness will be a newspaper
rt porter, who is said to have heard the
young woman's statement.
State's Attorney Deneen and First
Assistant State's Attorney McEwen
are both pleased over the status of the
case. It will be submitted to the jury
a week from today. State's Attorney
Deneen estimated tonight, that the
prosecution of Luetgert would cost the
county about ?5.000. Over $3,000 was
saved by the state's attorney's own
corps of stenographers taking the evi
dence for him. The cost to the county
'iji this trial, lasting two months, is
about one-fourth of the cost of the
Cronin and the anarchist trials.
"SMOKE HOUSE FRANK."
As a preliminary to Dr. Dorseys on
slaught, policemen were called early
today to impeach certain witnesses for
the defense who had identified a pic
ture of Mrs. Luetgert as that of a
woman seen in Kenosha, Wis., on May
3. 4 and 5.
Detective D. Ward Wallbaum testi
fied that Matt Scholey, of Kenosha,
had told him some weeks ago that the
picture did not look like the woman
Soholey saw at Kenosha. According 1 to
the witness, Scholey said he had not
n-oted the appearance of the strange
woman he saw in Kenasha. May 4 to be
able to identify her, much less a photo
Detectives De Celle and Dean gave
impeaching evidence with reference to
other Kenosha witnesses, who had said
the woman they saw was, to the best
of their knowledge, Mrs. Luetgert.
Prof. Mark Delafontaine was called
upon to impeach the evidence of Prof.
Long, of the Northwestern university,
with reference to bones. He expressed
views upon the subject in scientific
terms directly at variance with the
ideas of Prof. Long.
Prof. Dorsey followed Prof. Delafon
taine on the witness stand, and had
just got his impeaching battery in
good order, when it was discovered
that Dr. Allport was not in court. The
defense desired that the chief osteolo
gist of Luetgert's side of the case be
here to hear himself "roasted," and
Prof. Dorsey was withdrawn tempo
Frank Odorofsky, alias "Smoke
House Frank," furnished the comedy
of the session. He Is a Pole, and he
has a poor opinion of German inter;.
: preters. Today, he employed some ricn
! Polish profanity, While informing the
. court that he had not said what had
: been credited to him by Germans, w&o
undertook to translate his language.
Although few people in the crowded
court room could understand what the
witness said, the man's gesticulations
'. and expressions^ of countenance, as he
expostulated with' Judge Tuthill,
aroused mirth, which the court bailiffs
were unable to suppress. A Polish in
terpreter was procured, and Odorofsky
related circumstances following the
disappearnce of Mrs. Luetgert, which
tendered to further impeach Mary
Siemmering. : :
The utter anihilation of the testi
mony of Mary Siemmering yesterday,
together with the impeachment of
William Charles, Luetgert's business
partner and confidential friend, has
had a chilling effect upon the defense.
Luetgert was morose and sullen today.
He admitted to a Jail guard that the
case looked bad for "him at present.
ATKINSON FORGERY CASE.
The Line of Defense Not Yet Made
GLENVILLE, W. Va., Oct. B.— ln
the Atkinson trial the cross-examina
tion of L. L. D. Peters, commenced
yesterday, proceeded this morning. In
consequence of the character of Peters'
evidence, his cross-examination by
Mrs. Atkinson's attorneys was rigid.
Various letters written by Mrs. Atkin
son to Mr. Stalnaker, after the death
of Judge Camden, her former husband,
were read this morning to the jury. In
these letters, Mrs. Atkinson asserts
that Owens had not paid for his land.
These letters show date subsequent to
that of the receipt.
William Wortman testified this
morning that Mrs. Atkinson, about
two years ago, proposed to sell him
land belonging to the Camden estate
and wrote and delivered him receipts
for the purchase money. The defense
endeavored to show that he was and
is in the employ of the prosecution for
the purpose of giving and hunting \ip
S. M. Peters, one of the best known
farmers in the county, gave evidence
for the state, tending to establish the
alleged system of forgery. He stated
that Mrs. Atkinson, in his presence
and after the death of her former hus
band, wrote and delivered to him a
writing to which she signed, in Peters'
presence, Judge Camden's name, ac
knowledging the receipt of money,
which Peters states at no time had
been paid. The evidence for the prose
cution closed at noon today.
The defense opened with H. D. West
fall on the stand. The witness pro
duced receipts given to him some
-years ago by Mrs. Atkinson, which
were similar to those alleged to have
been forged, and stated the same are
genuine and authorized by Judge Cam
den. The line of defense is not yet
fully apparent. _
ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD.
A NEW DISCOVER V WHICH IS
WORTH THAT Ml CH
To Anyone Afflicted With Piles.
The Pyramid Pile Cure, the new,
painless remedy which has been sj re
markably successful in curing every
form of piles and rectal diseases, has
recently been placed on sale at drug
gists and it is safe to say that when its
extraordinary merit becomes fully
known, there will ne no such thing as
surgical operations for the cure of this
obstinate and common trouble.
Mrs. M. C. Hinkly. of GDI Mississippi
St., Indianapolis, Ind., says: 1 had been
a terrible sufferer from piles for 15
years and no remedies benefited me,
until I saw an advertisement of the
Pyramid Pile Cure; I got a package,
also a package c* Pyramid Pills and
used both according to directions. I
was astonished at the immediate relief |
obtained and now I honestly believe j
the Pyramid to be the only certain i
cure for pi'.es.
That you may realize how bad I was,
I will say that I was confined to my !
bed and went before the college physi
cians hero who said my case was a new
one to them and wanted seven or eight j
hundred dollars to undertake a cure; i
the great pain had brought on a rup- !
ture, and I knew an operation would ,
be death to me on account of blood j
poisoning. Nearly every one here .
knows of my terrible suffering from j
piles and I feel that I cannot praise the j
Pyramid Pile Cure enough and the !
Pyramid Pills also. My husband will j
join me in highly recommending thu j
Piyamid, my daughter was cured by j
one box only. For several years I ;
weighed but about 90 pounds, now I j
weigh 150 and feel in perfect health.
This seems to be the universal testi- j
mony of every sufferer from piles who
have ever tried the Pyramid; it is the i
safest, most painless, pile cure yet dis- j
covered; contains no opiate, moiphine. j
cocaine or any poisonous ingredient
whatever, has a soothing, healing ef
ff-ct from the flist application, and the j
moderate price piaces it within the j
reach of every one needing treatment.

Two Parties of Klondike™ Ea«fr
PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Oct. B.—
Passengers who returned on the
schooner Sailor Boy from St. Michael's
today report that Mayor Wood, of Se- ;
attic, marager of the Humboldt expe
dition, and D. H. Howard, who had I
charge of the Eliza Anderson party,
are practically prisoners in the hands
of their irate passengers. Only the
presence of the United States troops,
under Lieut. Col. Randall, is expected
to avert serious trouble. The feeling I
against both Wood and Howai'd is said
to be bitter in the extreme, and the
m-iners have appointed committees to
guard both to see that they do not get
out of their reach.
Thomas K. Clark, of Seattle, who |
was one of the passengers on the Sail- j
or Boy, said: "There is no chance for J
the Wood party to get any consider- t
able distance up the river, although j
they had werything ready to make |
the start Sept. 19. the day we left. The i
men are disgusted and disheartened, j
They are quite likely to do something
desperate before spring. Without ex
ception, they seem to blame Wood for
all the misfortunrs. and it would net
be surprising if he were made the vic
tim of their wrath. I would not be ,
surprised to heai" of' the death of D. K.
Howard at the/hands of the miners.
The feeling against, them is growing
more bitter every day. The passengers |
of the Eliza , Anderson paid their i
fare and freigtrt to Dawson, but !
the Anderson ' ; was abandoned at j
Dutch harbor . J'aniJ the passengers
were landed at: St. with no
prospect of getiingir further this win
ter. Then Mr. Howard announced that
the expedition Was a failure, and that
he would not. feed them till th?y
reached Dawsoq Cito% as his contract
demanded. He will oe fortunate if he
gets out of thejfe alive."

Sensation Caused in Havana by the
News— Discoveries Made by the
HAVANA, Oct. B.— The escape of
Senorita Evangel ma Cossio, otherwise
Cossio y Cisneros, has caused quite a
sensation in Havana. The investiga
tion made by the authorities has de

in the case. It is now asserted that
the young woman escaped between 11
o'clock and midnight of Wednesday
over the roof of a neighboring house
and through it to the street below,
O'Ferrall lane, and not into the street,
where the police found a hand ladder.
On the roof of the adjoining house the
authorities found three planks each
about thirty feet long and eighteen
inches wide, joined together by strong
hinges, so as to serve as a bridge, en
abling a person to pass from the roof
of the prison to the roof of the house
referred to. The authorities also found
on the roof a revolver of large calibre

months, and paid the rent in advance.
The building was poorly furnished, the
principal room in it containing only
an old table, a wash stand, a ward
robe, an antique sideboard, six old
chairs and six plates. But the young
men seemed to be perfectly satisfied
with their surroundings and little or no |
notice of thorn was taken by the neigh
bors or by anybody else. When the j
rooms at No. 1 O'Ferrall lane were. !
searched, the police, in addition to the j
articles already described, found a bag ;
of lime, a can of paint and a large
brush which might be used for the ap
plication of either lime or paint. Inside ',
the window through which Senorita ]
Cossio escaped the police discovered a |
bed sheet, and as this apartment was j
her sleeping room, the authorities are
inclined to believe that the sheet was
used by the escaping prisoner to en
velop herself, with the object of de
ceiving her roommates, into the belief j
that she was moving about in her night I
clothes. The quarter of the prison j
which was occupied by Senorita Cossio
is known as the New Hall, for th>»
reason that it was constructed only
seven months ago. It was set apart
for the use of political prisoners and |
was quite comfortable, compared with j
other Spanish prisons.
The companions of the young Cuban
woman, whom she left behind, say that
the day before Senorita Cossio escaped,
she received a package believed u>
have contained drugged candies. In
any case the senorita, contrary to her
usual custom, did not at once distribute
the candies to her prison companions,
but waited until Wednesday night,
when she urged each of them to par
take of the confections. The prisoners
did so, and they express the con vie- j
tion that the sweets were drugged, for
they soon afterwards fell into a deep
sleep and did riot awake throughout
the night, although the filing of the
iron bar of the senorita's bedroom
window must have made considerable
People living in the vicinity of the
prison have informed the authorities
that they heard the noise of carriage
wheels shortly before midnight on
Wednesday, and this fact is supposed
to have a connection with the prison
er's escape. There is a division of opin
ion as to whether the escape of the
senorita was effected by Americans or
by Cuban insurgents. The police are
hard at work investigating the escape
and all the Spanish authorities alonsr
the coast have been communicated with
in the belief that an attempt may be
made to embark the senorita upon a i
vessel for the United States or else- j

THE EL DORADO MYTH.
Wny the Term Is Applied to Sonreei
of Uncommon niches.
The El Dorado is the term now heard
on every side in connection with the
placer mines of Alaska and the North
west territory of Canada. Its deriva
tion is of interest. In the fifteenth
century it was rumored that there ex
isted in the northern part of South
America a city of great wealth called
Manoa, whose king, El Dorado by
name, was periodically smeared with
gold dust until hia whole body had a
gilded appearance. It was said that on
these occasions he threw gold, emer
alds, and other precious metals and
gems into a sacred lake, in which he
Beginning in 1532, the Spaniards sent
many large expeditions to search for
this phantom city, and most of them
ended disastrously, hundreds of lives
being lost. One explorer, Orellano,
averred that he found El Dorado in his
voyage down the Amazon, In 1540. This
was disproved, but the search was con
tinued down to the eighteenth century.
Some of the results were the conquest
and settlement of New Grenada, the
making known to the world of the
mountain region of Venezuela, the dis
covery of the noble rivers, the Orinoco
and the Amazon, and the exploration
of the vast forests west of the Andes.
About the end of the sixteenth century
an English expedition, either sent out
by or under the personal leadership of
Raleigh, penetrated into Gutana, there
by obtaining a claim on that country,
which has resulted in the acquirement
of the modern British colony of that
It has been supposed that the origin
of this fable arose from the yearly cel
ebration of a tribe of Indians near Bo
gota, whose chief was on these occa
sions gilded with gold dust; but this
ceremony was never witnessed by the
Spaniards, and the story may simply
be another version of the El Dorado
The name El Dorado was commonly
i used to describe the city or country
j which was the object of the search,
| but a later usage of the term has been
; its figurative application with regard
j to any region of more than common
1 richness. El Dorado county, in Cali

find in '49. and since then the expres
sion has been used to describe many
