Chicago, Oct. 21.—At 8:30 last night it u-as announced from the office of State's Attorney Denean that there would be no announcement of a verdict in tie Luetgert case before the opening: of court this morning. Judge Tuthill went home early in the evening, leaving, matters with Slate's Attorney Deneen, who was to send him word in case a verdlctshouid be reached during the «arly part of the evening". Tr.e attorneys for the defense also left matters with Deneen and went home to await any word that might come from the jury room. Attorney Phalen, the junior counsel for the de-' ense, was around the state's attorney's 'ffice for a short time, and then took hia eparture. He made a call on the state's 98 and 85c Dress Goods in all Novelty Weaves, Extra values and we close them at 68 and 58c Chamois Flannel now so popular and price is 10c Tubular Braids, like every one is looking for, in all designs are here at 6c j attorney, and poking his head TnsidTche jil eece( j J door queried briefly: "Anything?" "Nothing," said Deneen with a weary smile, which Phalen returned as he hurried for the doorway.

The counsol fur the defense stili stick to their assertion of a coming- acquittal, but Attorney Phalen says "disagreement" as often as he says "acquittal." The "state is now looking for a disagreement, having small hope thta Harlev will agree to a conviction, and certainly not to the death penalty. The state's attorney is, however, confident that the ;>ury will be with him to the extent of ten to two or eleven to one, "I will have ten of th«m I feel sure," he said, "although It la Possible that I may have only nine— but nine wil! be for the state without th* slightest doubt."

I agreed with Judge Tuthill and the attorneys for the defense to remain here until 8:30 to receive the announcement if a verdict should be reached. In the event of an agreement I was to send word to the judge and opposite counsel and they would come to the court for the purpose of receiving the verdict. It was understood that if the jury did not send word of a verdict by 8:30 the building should be closed and everything should go over until 9:30 tomorrow morning. No word has come, and if the Jury does arrive at a verdict it will not be heard and no announcement of the verdict being reached will be sent out from the jury room. There Is absolutely no chance now of anything being- heard from the twelve men before tomorrow morning at the earliest" Judge Will Try to Force a Verdict, For a time last night it was rumored that if the jury had not agreed by today it will be discharged as soon as it re-; ports its inability to reach a verdict.' This, however, is not the case. It is the firm determination of Judge Tuthill to keep the jury until Saturday nig-ht or late Saturday afternoon before he permits them to go with a disagreement. Hi has announced that both state and defendant have spent so much money and time, and the case has been 90 loflg a,nd difficult to try, that he will not consent to the discharge of the jury until there is absolutely no hope whatever of a verdict being reached. The jury stands about where it stood twenty-four hours ago. Reports vary from nine for the death penalty to three for acquittal to eleven for death and one for acquittal.

Great Britain Finds It Impracticable at This Time to Join a Silver Conference. OAOTOT EEOPEfl THE INDIA MISTS ; pry Block If He Could Be Convinced the Sausage- maker Slight Be Handed. Chicago. Oct. 21.—It is alleged that the one juror holding out persistently for Luetgert is Harlev, and It is thought that if he would change front there would be little time lost in arriving at a verdict in the celebrated wife-murder case. Juror Holabird is also credited with favoring- the acquittal of the prisoner, but it is thought that he would come around quickly if Harlev could be induced to vote for conviction. The feeling among the jurors who are in favor of the death penalty 13 high against Harlev, and they have done some very plain talking to him. At one time yesterday morning they even sent YELLOW JACK MAKES PROGRESS. Record at New Orleans Beaten Again -with. Sixty >*ew Cases.

Episcopal Missionary Council. Milwaukee, Oct. 21.—At the evening session of the EpiscopaJ missionary council Rev. Arthur S.

He thought thi could be acomplished as well by whit teachers as those of the negro race. Th reading of this paper lead to a discus sion, some of the delegates taking the stand that it was necessary to appoln colored bishops. Others opposed thla idea and no agreement was reached. bassador White came from Berlin last Saturday. He has avoided publicity, but has had several conferences with Senator WolcotL In the course of an interview with the corespondent of the Associated Press White said that Ger~ many's action as to bimetallism wiLl depend upon England. Discussing the possibility of a tariff war, White said: "I do not believe that Germany will inaugurate a tariff war with the United States. The German press and many German statesmen have been very bitter against the Dingley law, but I think they are now beginning" to realize that an increased prosperity will enable t)ie United States to buj' ag much as under the lower tariff."

This is the incident that gave to the state the idea that there was but one man standing between Luetgert and a death sentence. There was considerable excitement around the court room yesterday morning when the counsel on both sides, the judge, the jury and the prisoner met in the court room and held a secret session, excluding everybody, even the reporter?. Xo one knows all that took place at the session except those present, so it is not even an established fact that the jury wanted to know whether eleven men could coerce the twelfth, and they would have been very ignorant American citizens if they had wanted information on that point. The jury wanted some further instructions, so it is said, as to the evidence. They wanted to know howthey should weigh the evidence of Nicholas Faber and the Schimpke girls, who testified to seeing- Luetgert and his wife enter the factory the night of May 1. Judge Tuthill advised the jury that he could not instruct them concerning circumstances of fact, of which, under the law, the jury must be the sole judge. As to this matter it was testified in the trial that no one not possessed of telescopic eyes could s«e what the Schimpke girls said they saw at night. And the witness, was a reliable and creditable one. During the afternoon there was no signof a verdict and no word of any kind caine from or went into the little room where the jurors were locked up. At times loud talking could be heard and the tones indicated anything but *n atmosphere of harmony. There is very little thought now of anything- but a disagreement. It is the general opinion that Harler will prove oiatinatt to the end. and h» TUT kaor that she administered laudanum to the illegitimate infant of her daug-hterand afterward buried it in the cellar.

The British suffered a temporary check when they reached the open space and were exposed to an accurate flre. After a prolonged artillery fire the Gurkhas were reinforced by the Gordon Highlanders. Then followed a magnificent rush across the open space in the face of a murderous fusillade. The enemy stood their ground till the British reached the rocks below, down which the tribesmen could not see to fire, an-1 then they fled pell-mell. The losses of the Gurkhas and the Gortlnn High- la.nders were severe. The tribesmen reserved their fire till the Gurkhas reached the zigzag path undier a perpendicular cliff. Three British companies crossed the fire i.-»ne oft here at a rush, sustaining heavy losses, while the remainder deployed to the left to intercept a flank attack by some 7,000 of the enemy from that direction. At 12:30 p. m. matters looked ^ornery serious, as the British gun flr e had failed to dislodge the enemy. General Kempster thereupon went forward in person, moving up the-Gordon Highlanders and the Third Sikh regiment into he fighting line. A systematic assault was ihen organized and 3,000 men with fixed bayonets stood waiting for the order to advance. Three minutes before the -word of -ommand was given General Kempster elegraphed back instructions to the artillery to concentrate their fire. The eighteen pieces of artillery responded, and under cover of this fire the leading ompany of Highlanders, amid perfect iience. rushed into the fire zone. Half he men dropped, but the remainder ushed gallantly on till they reached the over where the Gurkhas lay. The rest the force streamed after them and the tribesmen seeing that most of the troops had passed the fire zone fled up the hill and collected under cover of the cliffa The Highlanders and mixed regiments, after pausing a moment to take breath, again advanced to the assault, and twenty minutes later the position was won.
