Bones Fomul in the Vat and Identified as Those a Small Woman He Says Have Been Made to Order—Cement for Facial Nerves. CHICAGO, Oct. 1.—Public interest in the Luetgert murder trial continues with unabated intensity. All streets seem to leud to the criminal court building. The testimony of Dr. Allport so far has been greatly to the big sausage faker's liking. Dr. Allport, during is first examination, declared the femur, which Professor George Dorsey of the Field Columbian museum identi fied as that of u human, was the femur of a hog. Dr. Allport is a professor of descriptive and comparative anatomy in the Northwestern university. The dispute between these two eminent authorities as to the bones has brought about a crisis in the case. If the jury believes Dr. Allport the conclusion can hardly be escaped that no human body was boiled in the vat in Luetgert's sausage factory. Not the Temporal Bone of a Woman. When Dr. Allport went on the wit ness stand again he created another sensation by declaring that the tem poral bone which Professor Dorsey identified as human and from its for* mation probably the right temporal bone of a female, is not human. Dr. Allport emphatically remarked that there were no indications upon which to base the conclusion that the bone was from the skull of a human being. He believed it came from the skull of )me lower animal. He also declares 'that the phalanges in evidence be longed to the lower animal kingdom. Dr. Allport did not know what was in store for him in the cross examina tion. Professor Dorsey had prepared for the prosecution a list, of questions that stirred the Northwestern univer sity professor when they were pro pounded by Assistant States Attorney McEwen. The questions were bristling with technicalities and were framed with a view to testing Dr. Allport's knowledge of osteology. Dr. Allport had prepared for the defense and cross examination of Professor Dorsey and the latter evened matters with a geance. Not Kven an Auiintil Temporal. Dr. Allport made a statement on the witness siand that caused a profound sensation lora few minutes. He was examining the temporal bone which had been identified by Professor Dorsey, and pronounced by the latter not only a temporal bone, but the temporal bone I of a woman. "That bone is not a temporal bone I either of a human or of the lower order of animals," declared Dr. Allport, gaz ling at tlio exhibit intently. "It is a I com position of bones put together by (artificial means. The trace here which 1 Professor Dorsey said was the outline lof a facial nerve is a fibre of animal Imatter with which the bones are stuck (together." The statement was received with miething akin to dismay by the prose \tion for a moment. Luetgert leaned ick in his chair and laughed. Assist mt States Attorney McEwen began a lot cross examination of the witness. iO GREAT AMOUNT OF GOLD Treasure to Coma ou the rortlaiul Kot Relieved to He 1.dirge. PORT TOWNSED, Wash., Oct. 1.— According to Captain Munger of the putter Grant, it is the Bear and not the Uorwin that will guard from all de spoilers the tone of Klondike nuggets that the steamer Portland is to bring irom St. Michaels.

The company carried in the neighborhood of $300,000 insurance. It is the purpose of the traction com pany to begin at once the erection of another power house building and as soon as possible will reopen its rapid transit system. Horse cars were put in service and the department clerks and busines men along the company's lines were carried to work behind mules and horses, gathered for the purpose. The loss to the firms having quarters in the power house building will aggregate Upwards of $150,000. The fire started in the printing office of Harvey & Gettinger. It had soon gained such headway that it was evi dent nothing could be saved, and the alarm was sounded to the large force of men at work in the building. Many of them were compelled to jump from the windows so rapidly did the flames pro gress. Within half an hour after the Are started the entire building was en veloped and the flames seemed to soar |ver 100 feet into the air.

The flour market i dragged, the lack of firmness in wheat deterring the buyer both at home and abroad from taking the product. Geo. Renner Geo. Klassy Morris King Arthur Mayho ,Wm. Blankenburg Burt Stacy Nevertheless, Great Interest Is Being Taken as to the Possi ble Outcome. Belief General That a Liberal Government Will Be Placed in Power. WASHINGTON, Oct. 1. Ministei Woodford up to noon had not informed the state department of the Spanish cabinet crisis, and the department was still officially ignorant of the happen* ings at Madrid. The main point of in terest here at present is the composition of the new cabinet, and it is expected that Mr. Woodford will not neglect tc obtain and cable to his government the earliest information possible on that point. In administration circles opinions are fairly divided as to the outcome, whether the new cabinet will be Liberal or Conservative, and as that is Ae mat ter of gravest importance to our govern ment, as influencing the line of policy to be followed as to Cuba, there is a strong desire to obtain information as to the prospects. Diplomats familiar with Spanish af fairs say the conditions point to one of two results, namely, the complete col lapse of the Conservative regime which has been responsible for the Cuban pol icy, and its succession by a Liberal cab inet with pacific and conciliatory ten dencies toward Cuba, or else a transi tion ministry, with Azscarraga again at the head as a temporary expedient to tide over affairs until the Cortes can meet and a permanent and stable min istry be formed. Officials believe that a complete change of ministry and po litical parties, with Sagasta as a new leader, is the more probable. In that case, it is said, Senor Moret will probably become minister of foreign affairs. Moret is best remembered in the United States from the fact that he was the first to recognize the Mora claim pre sented by tlio United States. RESIGNATIONS ACCEPTED. Que* LI ltaeoines Convinced Conservatives Caunot Unite. MADRID, Oct. 1.—As a result of the iuterviewB, General Azcarraga, the re tiring premier, and General Polavieja have had with the queen regent, her majesty has become convinced that it is impossible to reunite the Conservatives in order to form a 6trong ministry. Therefore she has accepted the resigna tions of the ministers. The opinion is general that Senor Sagasta will succeed General Azcarraga.
