Sept. 8 For the first time In tlic history of the Luetgert trial no curious crowd toilny blocked the ontranres to the criminal court building or Judge Tilth Ill's court room prior to the morning session of court Ihe public seems to lm\o learned after several tiresome' lessons that It Is use- Ics to seek for entrance without a reasonable excuse other than curiosity. In tlio court loom , the usual crowd of spectators gath ered , the woman far outnumbering thu men as usual. The big prisoner was brought into court earlier tlmn usual and was In his scat In front of IJalllft Ilccd before Judge or Jury en tcrcd the court room Luctgort plainly showed the effects of his conflncmcut and thu warm weather , and his features were mo > e < han usuall ) wan. The Jury also seemed to fed thu effects of the several ilnjs of not weather and the two weeks of confinement which they iin\c endured. The first witness called was II P. Krtigor , the druggist who sold Watchman frank lllalk the medicine which Luetgert ordered his emplojo to purchase The testi mony was Intended more ns corroborative of the watchman's statement as to tlmo. for the purpose of showing the hours between which thu alleged murder was supposed to have been committed. The second witness was Ir Charles 11 , Gibson , the chemical expert , who was placed ou the stand for rc-dlicct examination In regard to his analjsls of fleshy substances and slime removed from the vat where the state Is attempting to prove the body of the wife was placed. GIHSON DISAPPOINTING. Gibson's testimony proved to bo of little value to the state Although the witness freely admitted that the bits of llcshj sub stances and organic matter taken from the vat wcro similar to human flesh , bo was equally candid In his admission upon cross- examination by Attorney Vincent , chief counsel for the defense , that the flesh was as similar to the flesh of an ) other animal as It was to the human Trof Gibson testified that a body could be dlslntcgiated In the manner charged by the prosecution , but denied that the bones would be affected In the manner that thu state has endcuored to establish The witness testified that the bones would be merel > softened at the ends , but would not be dissolved The lawjers for the defense were high ! ) pleased at the result of the crosi-examlnatlnn and felt that their case had gained as a icsult of the evidence Prof Mark Dclafnntaluo a Swiss chemist , was next put on the btand Prof Debfon- talno was educated enl > In thu technical terms of English and It was Impossible foi him to so couth his language that the jury could comprehend In addition to his de fect In the manner of his testlmon ) the wltnebs was possessed of a very fault ) dcllv- ui ) , and his low tones could hardl ) be dis tinguished by the court and lawyers , who were very near him. However , his testi mony was necessary to the case of the state as a witness , as without this story of ex perts neither the manner of Luetgert's sup posed murder nor the fact of her death can bo established. Testimony concerning bones was the chief portion of the ov Idence submitted by Prof. Delafontalne The bits of bone which the police gathered from the refuse pile where the ashes of the furnace were said to have been dumped were submitted to the scrutiny of the learned chemist , who readily answered jes as to whether they were human bones Other of his answers were so vague and uncertain as to be valueless as evidence Several times the court at tempted to have the witness define himself as to certain tcims and expressions , but such attempts were futile The chemist gave It as his opinion that a body could be dissolved in caustic potash , heated to the boiling point. In the space of three or four hours , nothing but the bones and some of the ligaments and cantllage remaining However - over , hu would not commit himself further than had Dr. Gibson , who preceded him on the stand. stand.MIGHT MIGHT IK HUMAN FLESH. The prosecution could not diaw from Prof Delafontalne the assertion that the bits of flesh were human flesh. 'Ihey might bo human , but they might also be the flesh of an animal. The bones , he was sure , were human bones , but regarding the flesh , he was very guarded and careful In his state ments , lie will tomorrow morning be turned over to the defense for cross-examination. At no tlmo during the day did the de fendant display emotion , not even when the big dry goods box with Its gruesome con tents of flesh and bones was placed near him Ho handled the gunnysacks and In spected with curious glances the bits of flesh and bono which were passed gingerly from attorney to attorney , but at no time did his hand tremble or the look of ordinary Interest give way to pallor or an averted glance. ( Innocent or guilty , the verdict of all Is that Luetgert is possessed of more nerve than any other man who has ever been trltd foi murder in the precincts of the criminal court building. The attorneys for the defense continue In their confident attitude , and assert that when the prisoner is acquitted , and they declare that when ho Is free a number of damage suits are to be commenced. They Intend that these who have "manufactured evi dence , " as they put It , shall suffer for the wrong which they say has been done their client. TESTIMONY CONCERNING HONES. The prosecution tomorrow will Introduce evidence to prove that fully 90 per cent of the bones which have so far been Introduced Into the trial are those of dogs and sheep * Then it will be shown that the remaining 10 per cent arc human bones It will bo shown that the dog and sheep bones were taken from the place where the bones were usually thrown The human bones , It will bo shown , wore taken up from the street. The prose cution will endeavor to show , and claims It will show , that extra precautions were taken to place the human bones where they would not readily bo found. The state's attorney has In hla possession what bears a close resemblance- a chin bane , sockets of teeth being plainly visible. It Is doubtful , however , whether the experts will declare this to bu a bono of a human being In all human possibility the state will rest Itu case tomorrow night IMimmiU' lefciiHc mi Alllii.
