NEW YORK. Close of a Trial That Has Had as WJde Public Interest as the Cronin Case—The Judge's Instructions on the Important Points—Crowds Surround the Criminal Court Building at Chicago Waiting for the Verdict—Incipient Riot Quelled. Chicago, Oct. 19.—Information direct from the jury room is that a disagreement has taken place In the Luetgert. case, both sides being^ obstinate. The majority of the jury is desirous of a conviction. It is now generally thought that the final outcome will be a disagreement. Meantime the man whose fate was hanging in the balance was sleeping in the jail as calmly as an infant. Chicago, Oct. 19.—Late yesterday afternoon State's Attorney Deneen finished his plea to the jury in the Luetgert case with these words: "Gentlemen, it has been said that Assistant State's Attorney McE(ven did not ask the infliction of the death penalty. That is true. I do not think it ia usually within tie province of a state's attorney to ask a jury to return such a verdict. But this crime is so heinous, so cruel, so wanton, that I feel perfectly justified in asking at your hands the extreme penalty of the law in the case of Adolph L. Luetgert." A buzz of comment ran through the court room as the state's attorney finished his address and was congrratu- lated by a few friends who sat near him. The judge granted an impromptu recess for ten minutes and upon the court again coming to order proceeded to read his charge. M'hat Is Ji'ecessary to Convict. He said: "Before a conviction can be had in this case the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty—first, that Louisa Luetgert is dead; second, that she came to her death on the 1st of May. 1897, in the county of Cook, state of Illinois; third, that Adolph L, Luetgert, the defendant, willfully, maliciously, feloniously and of malice aforethought, killed and murdered the said Louisa Luetgert by some of the various means charged in the Indictment, or by means unknown. The burden of proof rests upon the prosecution to make out and prove to the satisfaction of the jury, beyond all reasonable doubt, every material allegation in the indictment, and unless that has been done the jury should find the defendant not guilty. It is not incumbent upon the defendant to prove that Louisa Luetgert is alive, or her whereabouts, or what became of her." Establishment of the Corpus Delicti, Referring to the corpus delicti the judge- said: "No man may be con victed of a crime until what is known a: the corpus delicti has been established by the prosecution; and unless you are convinced by the evidence in this case beyond a reasonable doubt, that Louisa Luetg-ert died at the time charged in the indictment," etc., "in such a case 1 is your duty to acquit the defendant To prove the corpus delicti the »tate is required to produce only such legal evidence as establishes in the mind of the jury, beyond a reasonable doubt, a conviction that the murder charged in the indictment has been in fact, committed, and that the defendant, is guilty o its commission. * * * "While the statute of the state provides that a person charged with crime may testify in his own behalf he is not under any obligation to do so, and the statute expressly declares that hia neglect to testify shall not create any presumption against him." And the Jury Takes the Then Judge Tuthill read the different forms of verdicts, which included one for murder providing for the death penalty: another fixing the penalty at life imprisonment, the third provided for a term of imprisonment of not less than fourteen years and the fourth was for "not guilty." As Judge Tuthill finished the reading-, he looked up at the jurors and said: "Gentlemen you may retire and consider your verdict. surpassea "m numner aTiytmng: witnesses since the opening of the famous trial. Bj dark i;he street in front of the cour building- was jammed and the crowd turged around the corner in front of the jail. Men, women and children lined the pavement in front of the Michigan stree entrance ar.fi the line extended to Dearborn avenue on the east and North Clark or the west. The tops of the three-story buildings across the street from the coun building had crowds of spectators anc every windov.- ir. the structures facing the building had its cccupants. An attempt of a score or so of friends of Luetjrsrt to force their way into the iourt room about S:20 resulted in a call far police and a wagon load was sent, which soon restored order. In the court room every seat was taken by 8 o'clock. No criminal trial in Chicago in recent years has witnessed more widespread interest than attaches to this celebrated case. It is not believed that even th Cronin trial or the trial of the anarchists surpassed this in the intensity of public interest as to the final result. ACCUSED MAX STItX CONFIDENT. Whut He Will Tiret Do After He Gets Free of the Law. Shortly after 11 o'clock Luetgert -was informed by Jailer Whitman that his time for promenading the corridor v.-as up and he must go to his cell. Just aa he turned toward his cell he was asked !f he expected to be acquitted. "Sure I do." he said. "Why not?" "Wha.t are you going to do when you tet out?" "Well," said Luetgert with a. sardonic grin, "I guess about the first thing" I do will go to see Mrs. Peld, my dear, beloved Christine—that dear devil. She owes me J4.000, and I am going to get it." "What then?" "Then I am going to try to make" some more money. I guess I need it by this time. I feel easy over this verdict and I don't worry one bit. Now I am going to sleep and if any man wakes me up it will be bad for him I tell you." TROUBLE IN WEST VIRGINIA. CROWD WANTS TO SEE tUETGERT. G1VE THEM FITS.

Quite & Commotion in the Court Ko»m TVhen the Jury Is Gone. Immediately there -was an uproar In the court room. People who had been sitting arose to their feet and the shouts of bailiffs ordering- every one to "sit down" availed nothing. The crowd surged forward and took up every inch of space where the circular fence barred them from the attorneys. Women al- mo?t fainted in the crush, and their costumes and headgear suffered. The crov.'d seemed to \vant to get near LuetgrerL All wanted to see how the big sausage- maker stood the final ordeal now that hia case was in the hands of the jury. Finally Judge Tuthiil ordered the room cleared sind announced that he would adjourn court until S o'clock at night. It was agreed later that Judge Tuthill would remain at the criminal court building until 10 o'clock at least, and be within a few minutes' walk of his court room all night. Luetgert stood up near where he had been sitting most of the time for more than eight weeks, after th* jury retired, and with his little g-olden- haired son in his arms received a few friends. His son Arnold Luetgert and William Charles pressed forward and warmly shook the hand of the prisoner. Luetgert smiled and gazed about him. He tried to look calm and unconcerned, but behind the mask of indifference those who have watched the varying moods of the stalwart sausage-maker could trace suppressed nervousness. He soon returned to his cell, where he ate sparingly of the supper provided by Jailer Whitman.

Va., Oct. 19.—Serious trouble is anticipated with thecoal miners in Kanawha valley within the next three or four days. Papers were prepared here yesterday in nearly 400 suits for the eviction of miners from company houses, and as soon as these cases can be tried and evictions begun, which will be about the last of this week, trouble is looked for. An attempt was made yesterday to begin work at several of the mines, but the men were afraid to go to work. The strikers met at Monte-ornery in the morning and formed a procession of 300, with two brass bands, and marched along the river front to Mount Carbon, passing a number of mines where they expected to force out all men whom they might IncI at work. They found no one at work, however, and returned. The strikers are growing v'.-ry bitter toward the operators and seem to be determined to cause trouble. The governor, executive officers, com- mander-iri-chief of the militia, adjutant general and assistant adjutant general, left yesterday for Nashville. The state guard will, therefore, be without ahead if trouble should begin in the next; three days. COMMITTED A TERRIBLE CRIME. AS TO AN ISSUE One of the Points That Has Come Up In the Campaign in Greater New York. POLITICS OP A CITY ELECTION. And Their Being; No Laws in Georgia the Mob Did the Punishing. Adel. Ga., Oct. 19. — One hundred lashes well laid upon the back of a ne- gro was his punishment for going into a woman's house and demanding dinner. In addition to this the negro has been lost, which may mean almost e.nything. It seems that as Mrs. Clay was preparing dinner Saturday a strange negro entered the house, sat down to the table and ordered her to serve him with a meal. She ordered him out, but he refused to obey, and helped himself to what was on the table. She left the house and going downtown reported the matter to the citizens. At night several young men found the man, tied him to a tree and with a buggy whip gave him over 100 lashes, under which the victim became a mass of lacerations. The young men left him there, but later the ropes were cut and the victim disappeared, whether to safety or to a worse fate is not known. Chicago Alderman Shot In a BrawL Chicago. Oct. 19.—Joseph A. Haberkorn, alderman from the Nineteenth ward, shot twice at 2 o'clock In the morning, is under the care of physi- •ians at the Presbyterian hospital, who are now battling for his life, with the prospect of saving it. George Jensen, of 12T5 Seventeenth street, a cabinetmaker, did the shooting. It was the result of a brawl at the Argyle saloon, 195T West Harrison street. Shall National O u< wU° n >s of Any Kind Enter the Struggle ? —Ouestion Suggested by Gen. Harrison—Both the Old Partie* Divided TUereon—Silver in the Background—Interview with Bryan Which Puts Him on the Side of George. New Tork, Oct. 19.—Ex-President Harrison touched upon a truth regarding the New York municipal campaign in the course of an interview with Murat Halsted, published yesterday. This is that to some extent tha issue is whether there shall be any issue beyond purely locai lines. The question thus presented divides Democrats and. Republicans alike —the Itter perhaps more sharply than the former—as to both national and state issues. The strength of the Low independents, or Citizens' Union people, if principally among Republicans who hold to the proposition that local issuesshould be paramount in the city campaign; while the Republican organization Insists that the fight be made upon the St. Louis piatfoi-ni of the party, and particularly the financial plank of that document, Franchise and Silver Question*. The declaration in the Low platform hat proper compensation be exacted for franchises granted—such as for street railways—is but one of several attempts by men, who are for the most part Republicans in presidential years, to have the campaign fought on local lines. The 'ree silverites among the Democracy lave from the outset been aggressively "avoring the exploiting of their theories of finance in the city canvass, but these are in the minority, and were complete- y overruled in the Tammany or regular Democratic convention, and bad small consideration in the councils of the mas Jefferson party, which made Henry George its standard-bearer. Democrat* Attack the Excise Law. The Democrats, however, while prac- ically ignoring national Issues, are doing ome effective work on the subject of he excise law, even elevated and street ailway cars being- placarded with queries as to the justice of a law which levies a taw upon the larger cities, a portion of the proceeds being bestowed upon the country districts. This .question of the exclfse law will enter also—and naturally—into the election of members of the state assembly, of whom sixty-one In a total membership of 150 are to, be chosen in the Greater New York territory. The effect of this—a state issue In the main—Is likely to be felt in the vot* for officers of the city." BKYAX FAVORS HENBT GEORGK, So the Jefferson Democracy Cluinu and Presents an Interview in ^roof. New York, Oct. 19.—The campaign committee of the Jefferson Democracy is out with a statement that William J. Bryan is in favor of Henry George for the first mayor of Greater New York. They base their statement upon an interview which appeared in the Evansville (Ind.) Courier on Oct. 8, and which was only discovered yesterday. On Oct. 7 Bryan delivered an address in Evansvjlle, and afterwards he was interviewed on the situation in New York city. According to the paper mentioned, this Is one of the questions asked and the reply he made: "Do you think Henry George will be elected mayor o;.' Greater New York?" "I think h« has a splendid chance of being- the next mayor of New York. He is well known to the people of New York city. The masses believe in him and will support him at the polls. I do not think national Issues will cut much figure in the New York election." No letter or telegrams have been received from .Bryan by any of the George manag-ers that would tend to corroborate the above statement, and so far as known he has not been asked for his opinion on the situation here. Chicago, Oct. 19:—Referring to the be- iief expressed by the followers of Henry George that recent utterances of William Jenning Bryan indicated his support of the George ticket in the Greater New York campaign, Bryan wired the following to the Associated Press last night from Norfolk.

GARZA'8 RAIDS WERE POLITICAL. tliicle .Sun Therefor Refuse* *• D«Uv«f One of the RjUdera. Washington, Oct. 19.-—The state department has refused the request of tht Mexican government for th« surrender to it under the extradition treaty of Jesut Guerra, who was one of Garza'a lieutenants in the celebrated G&rza raid into Mexico in December, 1892. G-uerra wai one of a. party of about 15* men wh« crossed the border from Texas into Mexico and attacked and captured a Mexican town. He was sought to be extradited for murder, robbery and kidnaping. The murder was based upon the killing of soldiers in the raid, the robbery upon the capture of cavalry horses, and the kidnaping was based on the capture of soldiers. Although there had beein some few instances during the raid of private robbery it was not shown that Gusrra was concerned in them. He was arrested and committed in • Texas for extradition, but his counsel sued out a writ of habeas corpus and the court decided that he could not be s-iir- rendered, the offense charged against Guerra being reaJly political. The case was appealed to the United States supreme court, which dcided that the lower court had no jurisdiction in its interference with the committing magistrate, and reversed its holding-. This brought the case at last to the state department, and Solicitor Penfleld in an opinion rendered yesterday takes the same ground that was assumed 1 by the Texas court; namely, that th« offense was political and therefore that Guerra shall not be surrendered.
