But Will Take Xo Part in Any Conference in "Which Ilussia and Japan Are Represented—Stands by the Kecord a--> to Wliat Was Agreed Upon—Relations with Spain—Some Danger of Trouble Over Delay at Madrid—Woodford's Message. Washington. Oct .S.—The state department has received full Information as to the position of the British government on the proposed Behring sea conference. This proves to be much more complete than the brief cable reoorrs from London indicated, aa the department has been advised not only of Great Britain's declination to enter a conference unless it is limited to the experts of the United States, Great Britain and Canada, but also has been informed quite fully as to what led the Marquis of Salisbury to this conclusion. The British view, as laid before the sta:* department, is that at no stage of the negotiations has the British government agreed to a conference except that between the experts of Great Britain, Canada and the United States. It is not questioned that Secretary Sherman and Ambassador Hay made suggestions that the conference should be between "the powers interested." and that some of the' notes from the United States authorities expressed a desire to have Russia and Japan take part in the conference. Never Accepted by England. But it is pointed out that these suggestions came from the United States, and until accepted could have no effect In determining the nature of the conference. So far as the suggestions were accepted the note of Lord Salisbury of July 28 is said to stand alone, and this note, it i3 stated, mentioned only a conference between the experts of the United States, Great Britain and Canada. The latest correspondence on the subject leads to considerable doubt, aa to who will participate in the coming meetings. It has been understood that the difference would be bridged over by holding two meetings, in one of which Russia and Japan would particiaate ivithout Great Britain, while a second meeting would be held between the experts of Great Britain and the United States. Now Negotiating by Cable. It is understood that Ambassador Hay was directed to effect such an arrangement in case Great Britain, .de,- clined to enter the general conference. But there i^now some question whether theBritish autliori ties will participate in any way until a definite decision Is reached as to who will take part in the general conference, as there is understood to be a reluctance on the part of the British to join in a dual conference, and some doubt whether the British experts will leave for this country to attend either a general or limited conference until an understanding is reached on the entire subject. As the conference is so near at hand—the first plan having been to hold it Oct. 23 — the negotiations are necessarily conducted by cable, and by this means a satisfactory adjustment may yet be reached. OUR KELATIOSS WITH SPAIN. Fear That They Mny Be Strained to the Limit—Woodford's "Ultynatum." Washington, Oct. S.—The state department has not yet been officially informed of the purpose of the Spanish government to dissolve the cortes in December, as indicated in Madrid cablegrams. It was expected, however, that it would be found necessary for the cabinet to go to the country in order to secure the support of a majority for the Liberal policy towards Cuba, inasmuch as the present cortes has a clear Conservative majority whenever that party's elements can be brought together. Disappointment is felt at the remote date set for the convening of the new cortes, for it is presumed that any new programme for the settlement of Cuban affairs must be ratified by the cortes, and if this is not to meet until next March the long delay, it is feared, will give rise to irritation, and perhaps be beyond the powers of endurance of the present administration. It is possible, however, that by a prompt declaration of policy towards Cuba, couched in such terms and made public in such fa.=hion as to bind the government beyond doubt, the delay will not be serious in results. A cable from Madrid says: "It Is semi- officially announced that the note which General Stewart L. Woodford, the United States minister, communicated to the Duke of Tetuan, the Spanish minister for foreign affairs, is no more an ultimatum than it is a comminatory document. In spirit and texually it is couched in friendly terms. The cabinet at Washington expresses a -wish to know when Cuba can be pacified, and requests Spain to reply before Oct. 30 in order that President McKinley may be able to incorporate Spain's answer in his message to congress 1 . Premier Sagrasta, in agreement with Senor Gullon. the minister for foreign affairs, proposes to send a moderate reply declaring the policy of Spain i? to await events and to take such measures -as consideration and prudence dictate until the change of policy in Cuba smoothes the relations between the two governments. The answer of Spain will not be drawn up until the pro- gramme for the reforms in Cuba has been published." Another cable from Madrid says: "A cabinet council at which the queen regent presided was held yesterday. "When the ministers separated the premier, Senor Sagasta, announced to tlte newspaper men that no final decision had been taken in regard to the reply which Spain will make to the of tie United States to the Duke of Tetuan when ne was •minister for foreign affairs by the United States minister, General Stewart L. Woodford, The Imparcial, however. says it learns that the reply of Spain will satisfy Spanish susceptibilities in making clear to President McKinley the resolute anitude which Spain maintains in regard to Cuba." A remark made by Sagasta to a newspaper correspondent may make the Spanish feeling- clearer. Be said: "We will answer the American note in terms to suit ourselves, but always within the bounds of friendship." WHY WRIGHT STAYS AT HOME. He Is u "Nigger" and Has Too Mucli Self- Kenpect, It Seems. Chicago, Oct. S.—Every one of the county commissioners except "Wright promised yesterday to go to Nashville for Chicago Day. Commissioner Wright is colored. That is the reason he will not attend the centennial exposition, and he made; his reasons plain when the county board rnet to take action on the invitation of the Illinois commissioners of the Xashville exposition to attend that show Chicago Day. "While I agres with the recommendations of the president of the board," he said, slowlv. "still there are circumstances connected with the trip to Nashville which 1 would not care to see repeated. "If you will remember, Major Buckner, who as a member of the state legislature at Springfield last winter introduced the resolution providing for the appropriation of funds for the representation of the state of Illinois at Nashville, went to Nashville recently and was refused accommodations in the hotels there. This, in spite of the fact that he went there as a representative of Illinois. It was on account of his color. * * • I would be chagrined to have those things repeated. CONFERENCE ON SILVER. England Wantr Uncle" Sam and France to State What They Want London, Oct. 8.—Arrangements nave now been made to hold and Informal conference between the chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, and other British officials, on the one side, and the United States monetary commissioners and Colonel Hay, the United States ambassador, on the other side, for the purpose of securing a more definite understanding as to what the United States and France expect in the matter of coinage of silver. Consequently the British government will be unable to fulfill the promise of the chancellor of the exchequer :o give the United States commisioners a reply early during- the present month and the delay will pos- iibly last gome weeks. HORRIBLE CRIME IN MARYLAND. Miscreant Stabs Hi's Ajfed Father-In-IJi'w, His Wife, and Her Brother's Wife. Washington, Oct. S.—A shocking tragedy occurred yesterday afternoon about three miles from Sandy Springs, Md,, in a secluded spot near Ednor postoffice.

The shooting took place at the home of Hinton, situated about a quarter of a mile off the road leading from Ednor into Howard county, in a large body of ON LUETGERT.

Except Its Memory, and That Appears ITn- Iioly—Iiitvsrity of Ciiarle* Atlaeki.fl and His Wife's Testimony Contradict ed — Members of a Grund Jury Brought Into Court to Smash a Woman's Reputation— Prosecution to Conclude Today. Chicago, Oct. S.—One more day for evidence, and then the finish of t!i>? Luetgert trial will be in sight. The state announced yesterday that it has but few more witnesses, and that it would get through them without much delay today. Adjournment will then be taken until Monday, when the defense will offer some sur-rebuttal. and the way will be clear for the arguments of the attorneys, which will take about a week. It was a bad day for the defense. The evidence of two of their witnesses was badly damaged — Mary Siemering and William Charles, Luetgert's business partner were the sufferers. It may besaidthatMarySiemering's testimony was smashed as badly as that of Emma Schimpke's for the state. Witness after witness came upon the stand and swore that when Mary Siemering had denied that she had admitted improper relations with Luetgert she had not told the truth. They said she had admitted it, and in the most unequivocal manner. Most of these witnesses were members of the grand jury which had indicted Luetgert, and their evidence was crushing. Attack on the Evidence of Charles. Business men who had dealings with Charles swore that he could not be believed under oath, and told of shadv business transactions of which they alleged he had been guilty. Mrs. Feldt was in court to contradict the evidence of Mrs. Mary Charles relative to the rings worn by Mrs. Luetgert. Mrs. Charles emphatically denied on the witness stand Tuesday that she had ever asked Mrs. Feldt to say, if questioned, that the rings found in the vat at the Luetgert sausage factory were not the rings which had belonged to Mrs. Luetgert. Mrs. Feldt declared that Mrs. Charles had requested her to deny that she ever saw the rings before. The defense ask,ed her a !o£ of questions apparently intended for impeachment. More Iropegchment of Mary. Police Matron MeMahon, of the East Chicago Avenue station, was placed upon the stand to deny Mary Siemering's story that she had been subjected to humiliating treatment when she wa* placed under arrest and brought to the station. Matron McMabon declared it was untrue that the young woman was despoiled of all her clothing- in her cell, as she had stated, and that policeman had stood guard at her cell door while she was without raiment. "I searched her in the same manner I search all women brought to the station," said the matron. Alexander J. Sweenev, Philip Reitz, William Spanka and others who had sustained business relations with Charles, told of business transactions had with Charles in which they got the worst of the bargain through, as they alleged, willful deception and disregard for truth on the part by Charles. UJETGEBT HAI> NO NKED OF SOAP. Hoy »l nakM the lc*d pu*. WP POWDER ftOYM. BweiKO F R OG. t NKWVONK. A Witness Who Wan a Disappointment to the Lawyers for tlie State. Abraham Selig, who bought the grocery department of Luetgert's sausage factory for JSOO at a sheriff's sale, testified that he found 159 boxes of soap in the store, and that much of it was "scrub soap." This was brought out to show that Luetgert did not need to make soap with which to clean the bigfactory. But the attempt to show that there was no grease in the factory May 1 was not so successful. Carl Schrader was called to prove this, but was found to be aware of a fact that was not the sort the state wanted—that there was- grease in the icehouse sometimes and elsewhere about the factory nearly all the time—but he could not swear that there was none there on May 1. Wiliam Fulpeck, a teamster employed at the factory, then took the stand, and said he saw Mrs. Luetgert the afternoon of May 1. when she was in her own home washing windows, and that there was nothing unusual in her looks or manner. The state thea showed that Fulpeck saw Mary Siemering at the house early Monday morning. May 3, and that they had a conversation; that he asked Mary where her mistress was, and that the servant answered: "She ii stiil sleeping." The cross-examination indicated a purpose to prove that. Ful- pcck was drunk that morning. Bight witnesses from Kenosha testl-. fied to having seen the woman at nnd near that place on May 5 and 6 who was supposed to have been the missing woman. One was- H. F. Rohlfline; a farmer, who was acquainted with Mrs. Luetgert. They all swore that she did not resemble the picture of Mrs. Luetgert shown them, and Rohlfling swore' he had never seen the woman before. One witness said she had on cloth slippers, which was the footwear -worn by Mrs. Luetgert the night she disappeared. Altogether the state had a field day, and left one phase of the case—Luet- gert'3 disregard for the seventh, commandment—in a bad -cray. The legal difficulty, however, in convicting the sausag€maker has not been launched upon so far in sur- rebuttal. The state -must prove that Mrs. Luetgert was killed and her body dissolved in the vat In the factory; that the bones presented In th« trial are her remains: and on this point the defense baa the best of the case aa Been by a "man up a tree." Habitues of the criminal court say that the "reasonable ioafat" ha* been, clearly, established. TOM MOORE MAKES AN APOLOGY. Chunked His Mind with B«f«r«iice to tb« United Stat»».
