Chicago, Oct. 7.—The state yesterday commenced its rebuttal in the Luetgert wife murder ea.se. The fight was directed upon four points in the defense: Matt Scholey's statement that he had seen Mrs. Luetgcrt in Kenosha May 4 and 5. Luetgert's claim that he sent Bialk for a particular brand of mineral water the night of May 1, to explain sending out at all when he had thirty-nine bottles in the factory. The contention of the defense that soft soap was needed to clean up the factory. The statements of Roaa Gleich and others which tended to impeach Emma Schimpke in her story that she had seen Mr. and Mrs. Luetgert enter the factory the night of May i, Hard on Witness Scholey. Half a dozen witnesses, swore they would not believe Scholey under oath. Henry Bulz, a saloonkeeper at 85 Clybourn avenue, and Charles Wagner, gave the most 'damaging testimony against' him. It was in the evening of Sept. 23 that Scholey was in his saloon, said Bulz~ Officer Feld£h§w,_4)f .J£eji.P?ha, waa there, as were also Charles Wagner" and Oscar Wagner. Over their glasses the group began to talk about the Luetgert case. "Well," said Scholey. "you must give Luetgfrt credit for doing a good job, anyway." "What did you get for going on the stand?" asked Charles Wagner. "Well," Scholey is quoted as saying, mysteriously, "I won't tell you, but I got enough out of it so that I am satisfied." This testimony was ruled out, but it got in a second time without objection—that Is got before the jury. Photograph Was Fifteen Vea-s Old. One thing about this testimony was that it was given by men who had had business troubles with Scholey and In one or two instance? the witnesses did not know the meanirg; of "veracity." Mrs. Tews testified that the photograph ol' Mrs. Luetgert showing twn gold rings on her fingers was tnker. fifteen years! ago, or some f.ime before the rings found In the vat v.-ere said to have been bought. Gorc.on Clark, salesman for Lord. Owen & Co., who sold Luetgert potash and mineral water, said he had explained to Luetgert that there was no real difference in the water and that Luetgert had seemed convinced. The defense made no appreciable impression on these witnesses by cross-examination. lative to ner meeting tne ooys at mgnt. Her face became scarlet, and she became angry and snapped baclc her replies in a manner that amused even Judge Tuthill, while tne spectators smiled broadly. There were several witnesses brought forward to impeach Rosa Gleich. They swore that they were not with that young woman and her companions en the night of May 1, as she had testified. BIG BLA2£ AT CHICAGO. Destroys Comparatively Little Property, but Kills a 31:iu and a Child. Chicago, Oct. T.—Fanned by a strong •wind from the west, fire which brokeout in Dexter Park pavilion at the Union tuck yards yesterday afternoon spread to the district between Haistead andlln- lon avenue and r"orty-third and Forty- fifth streets, demolishing business houses and residences. It raged for two hoars, and the total loss was only about $60,000, of which $50,000 was the Dexter Park pavilion. Thi; horse market was saved. The most serious aspect of the fire was that a number of persons were injured during the fight with the flames, and fin unknown man burned to death. The injured are: Patrick Casey, employe of the stock yards, knocked down by horses; Morris Maloney, fireman, overcome by smoke and heat; P. F. Shearn, broken leg; Henry Walsh, slightly burned; William Donohue, fireman. Injured by falling timber. Dexter Park pavilion stands only a few yards southwest of the horse market, which is an immense frame affair covered by a huge dome. For the latter building to have caught fire would have meant the destruction of the greaterpor- tion of the stock yards. The pavilion contained 500 horses, and it was with the greatest difficulty that they were rescued. Late last night It was stated that paclifil Kohn, 4 years old, is supposed to have been burned to death.. She was left alone in her home, 4307 Haistead street, and could not be found afterward. Twenty-eight residences and stores were also destroyed, but the loss in each particular instance was small. CONFESSION OF FRANK NOVAK. STROXG FEATURE OF REBTJTTAI, Teamster Throws Dotibr on the Evidenc* Abont Soap Mafcinjj, One of the strongest features in ths rebuttal evidence offered was the evidence of Adam Brinker, teamster for a soap factory. It was in reference to the tallow, grease and chipped bone which George Eland said he delivered at the factory on May 1, and William Charles testified he procured as some of the ingredients of the soft soap which was to be made for the purpose of thoroughly cleaning up the big sausage factory preliminary to its prospective sale to an English syndicate. Brinkler said he hauled all the tallow— sixty-six pounds—and 150 pounds of bone away from the factory on May 1. He explained that it was his duty to do this once each week—usually the last day of the week. He conveyed the material to a soap-making firm by which he was employed. "Did you see bones, tallow or mixed grease in barrels other than the grease you hauled on May 1?" asked McEwen. "No; the barrels were all empty that I saw in the factory that day." "Did you ever put any bones or tallow in the icehouse?" "No." This evidence was considered important as contradicting the story of :he defense to the effect that Luetgert had used barrels of grease and tallow in the factory on the night of May 1 in making soft soap. According to the story of Brinkler there was absolutely no ta.llow, bones or greas.e in barrels which were alleged to have been rolled nto the basement and afterwards dumped into the middle vat. Brinkler added that he knew Mrs. Luetgert quiet well, and had seen and talked with her just prior to her-disappearance. He said she talked rationally, and that she did much of her own housework. This alter statement was in contradiction of he story of Mary Siemering. Deputy . Sheriff Frank Moran was •ailed to the witness stand to tell about vhat he found at the Luetgert sa.usage 'actory -on May 4. where he made a seizure under foreclosure. He said that he took possession of everything in the grocery store connected with the factory. He found amcng other things 100 boxes of soap of different brands. This point was brought out to impress ipon the jury that Luetgert did not require the soap it is asserted he proposed making. Emma Schimpke was recalled to the yitness stand and an effort made to .ow by her that all the impeaching vidence that had been produced by the defense on her testimony was the re- ult of a misunderstanding of her story. 3n direct examination she had stated hat she saw Luetsrert and his wife ;oing toward the sausage- factory at 0:30 o'clock on the night: of May L She was asked upon cross-examination f she had not testified to seeing Luet- jert and his wife on May 23. Witness id she had not. She had said, however, that on the light of May 23 she met Harry Fiedler ind the other boys at about the same nt she met them on the night of May 1, upon which date she had seen lUetgert and his wife. Attorney Phalen thawere£ questions upon the. Claims That His Victim Drank Poison That Was Intended for Robbers. Cedar Rapids, la., Oct. 7,—It has been known for a long time that Frank A. Xovak, the Wilford merchant and banker who is charged with the murder cf Edward Murray, together with ar- j son and conspiracy, had made a confession to C. C. Perrin, the detective, while en route from the Klondyke | country where he was captured, but Perrin has refused to say anything about it. Xow Perrin's report to th? Fhiel agency has been made public: It is very lengthy and is given up in most part to a detailed account of the trip to Alaska and return. The confession which Perrin says Novak made to him twice contains no surprises. Novak claims that he had a bottle o' iV'iifeky heavily charged with morphine in his store for the benefit of robbers who might break into his store. H:> says that when he and Murray went into the building on the fatal night ho went into the cellar to fix the fires, and when he returned discovered that Murray had drank a portion of the contents of the bottle and was then stupid. H« put him to bed and went down stairs, where he lay down on the counter to read, and fell as-Ieep; when he awokti trie-store was on fire. He claims thai: he tried twice to rescue Murray, bul: was unable, and then, fearing his story would not be believed, skipped out. LATEST CASE OF MOB MURDER.

Interesting Account of the SanguIHy Ca*« and How the Prisoner's Fat Came Xear G«l:ting Into the Fire Through Too Much Zeal in Certain Quarters, According to Counsel Rodriguez — Weyler .Refiu&eb to Kesijcii and Receives Loud A Madrid, Oct. 7. — At a cabinei: council ilast night, the government decided to grant autonomy to Cuba under th suzerainty of Spain and to co:ni:ir.ue th« sampaign as long as may be necessary. Washingrlon, Oct. 7.— The celebrated case of Julio Sang-uilly is presented in a semi-official form in a pamhpli't issued by Sansuilly'a counsel here, Jose L Rodriguez. It tells the story In detail and gives a. number of letters passim between Secretary Olney, Senator Sherman, Consul General Lee and the United States minister at Madrid, Hannig Taylor, not appearing in the state department publications, and h-eretofon unpublished. As a whole th« docuroen upholds the course of President Cleveland and Secretary Olney, and poinU out that the agitation in Sangullly's behalf in congress served only to preju dice his_case, After_£jaMns tha,t the attention of conjure* "and "thV~p«Wic'wa» not attracted to Sanguifl'y. "ytitil the vary moment In which, through sklllfu diplomatic management the release o: Sanguilly frohl imprisonment wfthou further suffering 1 or humi!ia.t-l:on h been secured," the writer says: Senate*!* Exuberant Patriottiiim, "But the moment was one of extreme perplexity, which the friends o:t Sanguil- ly will not easily forget. Through an exuberant effusion of patriotic xeal and most commendable humanitarian feelings on the part of certain members of the United States senate; through a noble, although misguided, sentiment ol irenerous complassion. sentiment of worked up in their minds, and in the minds of the kind-hearted people of this country, by willful- misrepresentation cf the facts in the case, and by stories propagated by false friends and Intruders about wrongs and sufferings and indignities upon the prisoner, which in fact were never perpetrated or attempted to be perpetrated; through the desire of certain Cuban agitators, without author- Icy to speak for the prisoner, of posing as hig friends, urging extreme measures and precipitating, if possible, a conflict between the United States ana Spain," etc.. the counsel says that, a condition of things that might have proved fatal was brought about. Some Honorable Senators Helped. But says Rodriguez: "Thanks to divine Providence, through the righteous attitude of the state department; through the firm stand of some honorable senators who were then called organs of the governor general of Cuba or the queen cf Spain.; through the cooperation of the Spanish minster, and perhaps through the earnest appeal of the prisoner's counsel to the honorable chairman of the senate committee on foreign relations — the crisis wasaverted. * * * The result bears testimony to the fact that in all question concerning the action of Spain in this continent the United States of America are a party to the contention — and that In obedience to eternal laws of nature, the wishes of the government of the United States of America have always to prevail in the end." __ •VVEYLEK GIVE!* A>" OVATION.
