HARD WORK AND FEW PLEASURES Associates Tell of Her Dislike for Her Work on the Farm. ONE MURDER THEORY FULLS FLAT The First Effort to Fasten Suspicion Fails Because Prison Bars Prove an Alibi. Why murder? When those friends and acquaintances of Annie Dornian, who hold that tbe youug and beautiful girl met her tragic end at the hands of a murderer, are asked to state reasons to back up their supposition, they answer In this wise; Annie was always cheerful and lively. She always had a smile and a pleasant word for everybody. She bad a goodly portion of material comforts and the Joys attendant thereto, and on the whole her lot in life was a happy and contented one. Then, too, the strong religious beliefs to which she so ardently clung, which teach to avoll self-desl ruction and place It in the same criminal category with homicide, of themselves would have been sufficient to keep the girl from pursulug so desperate a course as to destroy the life placed within her charge and keep. All this, In brief, Is set forth by her friends, who are loath to admit that Annie Dormnn committed self-murder. Her Life Not All Pleasant. Annie Dormant lot in life was not all happiness. Muuy tilings point strongly to a colorless and monotonous existence. From the time Annie went to live with her half-brother, John, five years ago last spring, she began to learn what the words "bard work" meant. Every morning at 5 o'clock she arose to prepare breakfast for the men, who went iuto the near-by fields to labor throughout the day. At uoon she again prepared the meal, aud when night came once more the same task devolved upon her. And. during the hours that came between breakfast and dinner and dinner and supper there was plenty for her to do. Reds were to be made; the house was to be cleaned, the children were to be looked after, and there were a thousand aud one things which consumed her time and attention. It was indeed seldom, If ever, that she finished her toll until late nt night, often not before 0 or 9.H0 o'clock. Then, again, much of the labor was not of the lightest kind, but required lnudi physical exertion and muscle. That this hard work bore heavily upon her mind la evident by the words she uttered from time to time, aud more especially Just a few days previous to her death, when they became more frequent and emphatic thau before. Cotnplainta More Frequent. These complaints she made to one of the farm hands in particular and to several of her Intimate girl friends. To them she told how irksiMne and monotonous and colorless her hours were and what few opportunltlen she had to enjoy herself like other people. Then she would lose for a time much of her accustomed llght-heartedness and become apparently gloomy over what she seemed to think her unfair lot. On the day of the tragedy all the duties about the house fell upon her, for Mrs. T'or- man came to Philadelphia, and, therefore, could give the girl no assistance, as was her wont. Thus, taking all theoe things Into cousideratlon, it is thought not Improbable that Annie on that day determined to eud all by self-destruction. Again, that the dead girl was discontented Is not only made certain by her words, but by her actions as well, for last May she went away to seek employment elsewhere, work which would give her an oppoprtunlty to taste some of the hitherto forbidden pleasures of life, for up to this time nlmont her sole recreation had been obtained from her attendance of uiectlugK at her church and Sunday school and church society. In the short time, too, thai she wns away from the liorman household, scarcely two months, she occupied three different positions. Sent the Children From the. House. There is one thing In connection with Annie's conduct on the day of the tragedy that Is Indeed singular. After she had put the bnby fo sleep and had plueed It on the big old-fashioned lounge In the family sitting room, she called to the other children, who were romping about the rooms, and sent them from the house to play In the nurrounding fields. All the children say this, and John Herman lu commenting oil this yesterday, said; "I don't know what to make of It, for never before had Annie done such a tiling." To those who believe that the girl committed suicide, the reason for such action is obvious. Could Not IIe Had Much Money. Coroner Mlnshall has (wild that at the time of Annie's death six years' wages were owing her, and that lu this fact might possibly be found a mollve for the slrl'a death. Yesterday the brother denied this, aaylng that In the Hint place the girl hits been with him only a little over five yi-arw, and that, in ti1(, second Instance, but fit were due her ! ' """' l j by John Honnun producing his account book, o-Mcli showed that, up to within a month ago, Annie had receipted for nil her wages. Then. too, all the farm hands, four in number, were aten, and all declared that a soon as the flint of each month came, they Invariably received their hire. In talking with two of the farm hnnds yea. teriluy. Joseph Mice and Will Wiggins, who at the time the girl was probably Inflicting the wounds which resulted In death were working with Mr. Dorman on the lawn west of the house, both declared that Annie was not a weak physically a some hare endeavored to establish, but that they both knew her to be very strong and muscular, Indeed, as much so a the average man. To .lull for an Alibi. The murder theorists are Just now looking back to the fact that In February of Ibis year two men were discharged by Mr. Dorman for neglect of duly, and from this they argue that either one or both of these former em-rrlojc came In the farm house lat Wednra dny to wreak vengtance. Annie, they y, once showed a dislike toward one of the men. As far as one of these men, Arteniua Abbott, la concerned, the law gives hint a perfect ollbl. Cntll the day of the murder he waa In Jail In Ceorgctown. Del., for borne stealing. II." was released laat Wednesday. Hut a dispatch from tieorgetnwu saya: "Abliott waa released from Jail 11 A. M. Could not hove left UcorgctowD until 3.4. P. M. Was seen In town at 2 P. U. If Abbott left Georgetown at 8.45 he could not bare reached Philadelphia until about 8 o'clock." Annie Dorman's body was cold when found about 4 o'clock. A CLUE IN THE LETTER Coronor Mlnshall Look Upon the Anonymous Cominanlcatlon fts Additional Evidence of Murder. Special Teiegram to The Times. Chester. Septemlier 7. Coroner Thomas Mlnshall has been so busy to-day that he hag not been able to give any attention to the Annie Dorman case. He says he has no new clue, unless one can be found in the letter without any signature that John Dorman gave to THE Times reporter yesterday. The Coroner wants to get the writer of that letter, and he says that if he can In any way trace It to one person whom he suspects, he will have him arrested at once. The fact that Pr. Crothers says that Annie Dorman was a pure girl, and that the letter writer was trying to east reproach upon her character is. he savs, sufficient ground for suspicion, particularly if It should prove to come from one particular person. District Attorney Sehaffer says he will not bother the County Commissioners to furnish detectives. He has made up his mind to have nothing further to do with the investigation of murder cases until they have been turned over to him by the Coroner after an Inquest. Coroner Mlnshall haR not fixed the time for holding the inquest, but he says It will not be this week. Ho is going to allow full time for something to develop. LUETGERT'S LOVE LETTERS Their Eecipient, the Widow Peldt, Evidently No Friend of the Accused Man. ' Good-Tin " 011 His Attorney, Who Rather Enjoys His Client's Remnrks-The Star Witness to Appear. Chicaoo, September 7. When Luetgert entered Judge Tuthlll's court this morning he smiled and nodded at the Jury. The first business taken up was the rending of translations of the foud letters wilt-ten by tbe defendant to Mrs. Christine Feidt, which occupied much time. The jury listened carefully. The reader was careful to place due emphasis on each endearing word or phrase and to emphasize all reference to the fact that the big sausage manufacturer was anxious for the time to come when he would be free to wed the object of his affections. When portions of the letters containing reference to I.uetgert's trouble In engaging an nttorney were read It evidently embarrassed the prisoner. A O001I Joke on Judge Vincent. Luetgert's leading nttorney, Ex-Jndge Vln-ent. smiled, and the prisoner visibly winced when tin: sentence was rend In which Attorney Vincent was termed "greedy." The letter continued to state that Luetgert Intended to release Attorney Vincent, as he did not consider him able to handle so important a case. In another letter Luetgert wrote to the efTeet that on the drst day of the trial there wns to be a great surprise for the po lice. An attorney of world-wide fame was to be engnged, and when "the dogs of the police" saw who It was they would quail with fear. This as yet unknown lawyer, Luetgert continued, was to supersede Attorney Vincent, anil then the case would be properly conducted. Luetgert, whose chances for life were so considerably reduced by the Introduction of j the letters as evidence, rocked to and fro In his chair, and occasionally fdred a al. kly smile during the endearing passages of the letters. He evidently did not enjoy the public exposition of his amatory correspondence. His Lost Love. After the lettera were read the recipient. -l!rs. Christine Keldt. a middle aged widow, was called to the witness chair for the purpose of finishing her testimony for the State. Her former lover, to whose case she had done so much damage, refused to glance In her direction. Assistant Stale's Attorney MeEwen proceeded with her examination. The witness admitted having received funds from Luetgert prior to his arrest, and she said she had withdrawn the money at his demand from a safety deposit vault for his use. The sums footed up $4,010, the en tire amount which she hud received. Sh asserted her Ignorance of how this money was used by the prisoner, but admitted that portions of It had been retained by her on his order for the care of his children. She also testified that she hail refuted to lend Luetgert her own money. In all she had received eight letters from the sausage manufacturer. Grotty to Appenr on the Scene, Tho State regards Mrs. Feldt as one of their most Important witnesses, as through her testimony they expect to establish the fact of Luetgert's motive iu Ihe alleged murder of his wife. The last wituess called by the State was Nicholas Faber, who was employed as a fireman In the sausage factory, and sold he had seen Mrs. Luetgert enter the factory about 11 o'clock on the night of the murder. A. W. 0. Grotty, of New York, is coming to Chicago to testify In the defense of Luetgert. Hp will be the star witness for the defense, and upon his testimony Luetgert will depend to prove that his wife was alive after the day he Is supposed to have killed her. In fact, Urotty will furnish the defense tu the esse. This announcement wa made today by Attorney Vincent.

Yesterday, Was a Veritable Flower of Flowers, and the Reception Tendered Him by the Deputy Sheriff and Clerks Was on a Scale With the Decorations No Move Yet Made Toward the Appolntmeut of a Postmaster and Carr Likely to Hold Over for Several Days. Tbe first appearance at his office of Sheriff Crow after an alwnoe of nearly four month, was yesterday made the occasion of a rous- ing reception by blfl employes which nearly j . .. J staggered the recipient. Mr. Crow returned from Europe, where he has spent the summer In pursuit of boalfh, on Saturday last, and in the interim has been with his family at Spring Lake, not coming up to the city until yesterday morning. Monday night Real Estate Deputy Penne- will journeyed to Spring Lake for the pur-1 pose of escorting his chief In state to bis qunrters In the City Hall. Shortly before 10 o'clock a committee of fifteen employes left the office and went to Broad Street Station to meet the expected arrivals. The delegation was chnlrmaned by Deputy Sheriff Felton, the other members being Robert Grler. X. C. Christie, W. Alliens. Harry Wlldey, George Hocg, George Chandler, M. Scarlet, John Ertel, George Myers, L. Lut-ton, W. Lelnlnger. C. Shownker, Joseph Porter, Charles Thompson and F. Murgn-troyd. Along with them were Walton Eltkens. Hugh Montgomery and others of the Sheriff's Fifteenth ward friends. Cordlillly Greeted by Kniploycs. The Sheriff appeared to be in the best nf health and spirits, and responded cordially to the greetings that were showered upon him. Referring to the report, which an attempt wns made to circulate, that his mind was affected, he said: "I Imagine that with certain people the wish was father to the thought in that connection. I feel greatly benefited by my trip," he continued, "and as proof of that I am seven pounds heavier than when I went away. For some lime before I decided upon my late visit to F.urope I wns fnr from well, but soon after my arrival on the other side, and a course of treatment at the baths and springs. 1 began to pick up steadily, ami I now feel as strong and sturdy as ever I did in my life." But It was at his office In the City Hall that the surprise had been prepared for the Sheriff. Ills private rooms hail been transformed into veritable floral bowers. Taints and potted plants were ranged lu artistic profusion around the wails, and In the centre rose a huge bouquet of American Iteauty roses, while festoons of smllax and roses drooped gracefully from the massive chandelier, which was further ndorned with the Insignia of the Young Republicans. The Sheriff appeared deeply touched by this token of esteem and affection, and heartily thanked the force of clerks and deputies, who crowded around, delighted at their chief's evident appreciation of their efforts. Will Fight for His Seat. Regarding the action of tho Republican city committee In seating Colonel Glenn In that body from the Fifteenth ward Mr. Crow said: "I shall endeavor to find out If there Is any law that can reach this committee, which is supposed to be so organized as to represent the sentiment, thought and action of tho members of the Republican party. I mean to find out whether It can seat a person who does not represent the voters of the ward and unseat or refuse to cat the man who does. Immediately upon the return of Alexander Simpson, Jr., my solicitor, I shall take steps to have tbe matter determined by the courts, If 6uch action can be legally commenced. I am back In the harness and mean to take up the fight Just where I left it, for I am weary of being misrepresented, calumniated aud abused by those who appear to control political affairs lu this city."

The first preliminary contest was between Martin Judge, of this city, and young Smyrna, of Chester; the second was to have been between Croeky Piyle. another local lad, and Louden Campbell, of Pittsburg, but there was a dispute about the weight of the men and Campbell refused to ko on. Jack Ashton and Tim Callahan, local lus-pouuders, were substituted. Judge and Smyrna wasted no time whatever in looking for an opening after the first sound of the gong. They both began operations by swinging lunges, in which It was give and take until the end of the round. The second, third and fourth rounds were a repetition of the first, with honors about even. If there was any advantage, Smyrna had gained it.

Itoth men were quite weak at the end of the contest. The referee gave the decision to Smyrna Last night was the third time these men had met. tin the two previous occasions the de- cislon wns a draw. Young Callahan and Ashton went Into the ring amid a medley of howls and hisses; mingled with some applause.

The second round became hot luiniediately by a rapid exchange of blows, both Inndiug face blows. Toward the end of the round Griffo gave a good exhibition nf his wonderful cleverness by toying with McKeever. The round ended with the local man against the ropes. Griffo hitting him hard. No effective blows were landed iu the third, several of McKeever' vicious lunges falling short. The fourth round was clearly Griffo's, as he landed two telling body swings besides landing on his opponent's face several times. His defensive work was wonderfully clever. The fifth was productive of no work by either, except a good punch McKeever landed on Grlffo's face. Grlffoagain fought for the wind In the sixth and succeeded iu landing twice with good elTcct. He parried McKeever's blows as a duck sheds water. Roth men worked very ; hard in the seventh, it being the best round up to that lime. Griffo fought his opponent i to a standstill before it ended. McKeever I landed twice on the face Just as the gong sounded. In tile eighth Mac showed up strong, smashing Griffo In the face with telling etlect t.

O. tlint has been occupying the attention of the amateur aquatic world for a month past seems about as far from consummation as It ever wns. At the regular monthly meetinff of the West I'hiiadephia Iloat Club last night the subject of resigning from the parent body was discussed nt length, but nothing more came of It than referring It to the naval board deb gntlou of the club for final action. I It was thought that the Vesper Iloat Club would take the Initiative step of resigning on Monday nlslit, but the postponement of their meeting left the West Philadelphia Club alone in the matter, jind as certain circumstances place this club In u peculiar position It was thought best not to take any do-cWlvc action ut hist night's meeting.
