The State in the Luetgert Wife- Murder Trial Completes Its Chain of Evidence. DR. DOESET ON THE STA3TD AGAIN. Pots in a General Contradiction of the Statements of the Expert for the Defense j —JTndge Chetlain Appears to further Impeach Mary Siemering;, and fche Dc- iense Says It Will Ji'ow Proceed to Impeach the Judge. Chicago, Oct. 9.—The evidence for th? prosecution in the Luetgert trial is now before the jury- The state rested its' case yesterday afternoon. The closing testimony was of the same impeaching character that marked the evidence o£ Thursday. Professor George Dorseyhad his innnings during the afternoon session ant! he made matters- ur.pleasant-Iy warm for Dr. Allport. He was primed with facts concerning bones, but the prosecution confined the young osteologi- cal expert to matters tending to counteract and refute the statements made uy Allport when he was called upon to identify bones he had r.ever seen before. During his examination Allport idenu- fied the femur of a gorilla as that of a man; said that sesamoid of a buffalo was the patella of a dog and had given it as his opinion that the piece of temporal bone of shepherd dog was the temporal of a monkey. Contradicted Professor Allport. When examined as to the questions that are the real issue—is the femur that of a human? is the temporal bor.e human? etc,-, TJorsey just gave a flat contradiction to the experts for the defense —simply declared thai he was right at first. As far as this part of the testimony was concerned he said nothing that was not already in the record as his testimony. The cross-examination was brief. At one point in the direct examination, it was asked: "What are all these little bones identified by Professor Allport as patellas of a cog?" They are sesamoids from a buffalo. One of them js the patella of a dog." At the close of the cross-examination he was asked with reference to some human femurs: "Will you measure them with this tapeline?" "I canr.ot measure bones with a tape measure. The result will not be worth a cent." 7£0re Woe for iVfary .Sk-mei'lngi Theri Judge Arthur H. Chetlain was caled to the stand to add the finishing touch to the .impeachment of Mary Siemering. When this young woman was first arrested and charged with guilty knowledge of the disappearance of Mrs. Luetgert her attorney applied to Judge Chetlain for a writ of habeas corpus. Chetlain, sitting in chambers, had Mary Siemering brought before him and questioned her. His honor swore she told him she had not made application for release, but that her lawyer, Arnold Tripp, had done so, and had set up the charges In the petition. She told the Judge that she had not been mistreated at the police station, and that she had gone there voluntarily and was willing to return there, as she'knew she would soon be discharged, because she had done nothing wrong. Owing to this: state of facts Judge Chetlain dismissed the petition and the young woman returned to the police station. STATE WITNESS IS DRAMATIC. Puts on Mourning, and Weeps in the Witness Chair—Snr-Kebuttal. Angelica Schrader, 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 room when a woman attired in mourning garb ascended to the witness stand and held up her hand to be sworn. There were tears in her eyes as she sank into the witness chair. The woman was Mrs. Wilhelmina Miller, sister of Mrs. Luetgert. So firmly impressed is she that Mrs. Luetgert is dead that she some weeks ago donned the garb of mourning in memory of her sister. Mrs. Miller testified, while her brimming eyes were fixed upon the face of Luetgert. The big sausagemaker returned the gaze of his sister-in-law coolly. Mrs. Miller told of the kindly disposition of her sister, and a3serted that no mother was ever more patient or more kind to her children. Fred Miller, a nephew of Luetgert, and Bicknese, the brother cf Mrs. Luetgert, testified to having been * frequent visitors at "the home of theLuetgerts and to kindnesses they had witnessed Mrs. Luetgert bestow upon her children. This evidencs was given to combat and impeach the evidence of Mary Siemering and Mrs. Man" Charles, who testified that Mrs, Luelgert treated her children cruelly. Wii.h this evidence the state rested. Judge Tuthill at once adjourned court until Monday. Among the first witnesses heard yesterday were Detective DeCelle, who swore that he saw Scholey at Kenosha before the trial began and that he declared he expected to receive $1,500 for testifying in the case; Frank Odorofsky and Prank. Levandofsky. employes at the factory, who testified that they were both at the factory May 1 and that no barrels of meat or bones were there, and furthermore that the factory was fairly clean, and Mrs. Schimpke. who swore that the sign " to rent" was not up in her window until May IS—Rosa Gleich swore it was there May 1. Next Monday, ex-Judge Vincent announced, sur-rebuttal evidence would be put on. The defense will undertake the unusual task of impeaching a judge. A witness will be called to testify in rebuttal to Judge Chetlain's evidence as to Mary Siemering'3 . statement to him. This witness will be a newspaper reporter who Is said to have heard tt« 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 tron> j^teniajr.

If tlie Charge Against Him Is True H« I» a Spawn of Satan. Chicago, Oct. 9.—Leigh Hough, the boy murderer of Owatocna, Minn., who, it is alleged, chopped a companion into shreds with an ax Sept. 6, and for whom the police of the entire country iaj'e • been searching, was captured Wednesday at Guthrie, Ky., by Sheriff J. Z. Barncard, of Steele county,__Minn., _and "Oity Mar?haLJ_nhu-TBffrsbC" °£ "6Va- tonna, aiid brought by them to Chicago. He was taken on to Minnesota last night. Hough and J. M. Clark, the victim, and William Morgan, all of Ou-atonna, purchased a prairie schooner three months ago and wer.t on a horse trading tsur of Iowa and Minnesota. Clark was the capitalist of the party and in his travels accumulated eonsider- aJbt money. Three weeks ago the men returned in the wagon to Owatonna and went into camp in the yard of the City hotel. The mornirg after their arrival the body of Clark, horribly mutilated, was found lying near the camp fire. Nearby was a bloody ax. Robbery was the motive. Morgan was found asleep in the wagon ar.d placed in Jail. Hough could not be found. Morgan denied all knowledge of the murder, but said he believed Hough did it. a:; the latter had told him he intended robbing Clark whenever he got the opportunity. Hough denies that he is guilty. He does not look to be over 14 years old. DROUGHTTs UNPRECEDENTED. Forty-Eight Days of a Kind of Weather Unique at This Season.

Spanish Cabinet Council Makes the Decree and Queen Regent Christine Signs the Same. QEJT. BLAKCO TO TAKE THE PLACE; Also to Take 20,000'Men Avim Him When H* Sails—Coirespondeuce Between Wcy- ler and Sagasta Given to the Public- General Says He Has the Rebels Whipped —Sagasta Says There Will Be a Change of Policy and Weyler Won't Do. Madrid, Oct. 9.—The cabinet has decided upon the immediate recall of General Weyler from Cuba. A decree will be issued appointing Captain General Blanco y Arenas, llarquis of Pena-Plata, governor general of the island. The aueen regent will sign the decree tocay. According to El Heraldo 20,000 reinforcements will accompany General Blanco to Cuba. In the course of the cable message ser.t by Captain General Weyler to Premier Sag-asta, placing his post in Cuba at the disposal of the gov- ment,. he said: "If the functions with •which the government entrusted me had been merely those of governor general of Cuba I should have hastened to resign. But the two-fold character of my mission and my duty as commander-in- chief in the face of the enemy prevent my tendering a resignation, Ask* the Confidence of the &overnn*ent. "Nevertheless.'although I can rely upon the absolute, unconditional support of the autonomist and^ constitutional parties, as weU'as upo-ri'public opinion, this would be !n3uO*cTerit without the confidence ot the, government, now more than ever necessary to me after the censure of which I have been made the object by the.--members and journals of th,6 Liberal party and by public .jj)lrjj.<>n in the United States, which, latter is largely influenced by the former. This confidence would be necessary to enable me to put 3m end to the war. which^has already been virtually conclude^ from our lines at Juraco ift'Capc Antonio." SacRiita's Reply to Weyler. Senor Sagasta replied: "I thank you {or. your explanation, and value your franEness. I wish to assure you that the government recognizes your services and values them as they dessryg, .but if thinks a change of pSH^', in order to succeed, requires that the authorities ghould be at one with the rnlr.istry. This has nothing to do with" the confidence felt in you by the government, for the Liberajs have always said that the re- spdnsibflity for a given policy does not fall upor. those who carry it out, but upon the government inspiring it. I shall communicate your communication to the government shortly." Softest Hearted Soldier in Spain. Marshal Blanco has been described a* the "softest hearted soldier in Spain." and his whole career indicates his Disposition to employ mild rather than violent measures. Ever since the fall of the Azcarraga cabinet the name of Marshal Blanco has been the most prominent among the possible successors of General Weyler and the Impression in some well-informed quarters has been that if appointed governor general of Cuba he would be empowered to approach the insurgents with a view of arrriving at a mutual agreement for the cessation of hostilities. He enjoys the personal friendship and entire confidence of the queen regent. Takes Time to Deny a Report. Havana, Oct. 9.—General Weyler gave yesterday an emphatic and absolute denial to the reports that he would resist removal from his command in Cuba and in certain contingencies might espouse the Carlist cause. He said according to the official account: "My principles and my military record are firm guarantees that I will never oppose the constituted government, whatever it may 'be. I never have put obstacles in the way of the government and I never shall. I have always obeyed orders, and I always shall. So far as popular demonstrations go I accept them only as expressions of approval of my military policy and as tokens of personal sympathy." CAMPAIGN !N GREATER NEW YORK.
