WASHINGTON. Oct. 23.—The report
of Klrst Assistant Postmaster General
Perry S. Heath for the fiscal year end
ed June 30 hen been made public. The
following Im an abstract:
Special attention Is called to the ne
cessity of additional facilities for the
division of salaries and allowances, but {
above all other recommendations Is
placed one making; provision for a [
small corps of special agenta.about j
ten who are expert accountants fa
miliar with real estate valuee, to In
quire In the field Into postmasters' re
quisitions and demands, anti to reach a
Just ascertainment of merit In such
purely business matters as cannot be
obtained by correspondence. There
should also be flxtd a more severe pen
alty for the punishment of postmasters
who pcddel postage slumps with a view
to Increasing their own salaries, re
sulting In (lie diminution of the net
receipts of the government. Authority
should be given to secure leases of
post office stations for a period of five
Instead of ten years. So much Is
gained by our recent policy of consoli
dation of postofllccs and the establish
ment or extension of the free delivery
that I urge such action by congress
as will give greater latitude of discre
tion In the use of specific appropria
tions. Two assistant superintendents
of free delivery system have been ap
pointed, one to be located at New
York and the other at Chicago, with
nroner nlenarv nowern an I primary
On July I there were 3.733 presiden
tial postofflees, embracing I tilt first
class, 750 second-class and 2,814 third
class, The net Increase for the year
In the salaries of the postmasters at
these offices Is $97,600. Their aggregate
salaries are $230,800. With the con
solidation of the present Independent
post offices wllhln the limits of the new
city of New York a saving of at least
$62,723 In salaries an ! commissions of
postmasters will be effected. Another
considerable reduction In expenses
may 1st made by the merging, or the
alMillshmeiit. In many cases, of tho
several heads of divisions and other
officials receiving the higher salaries
fjongresa should not only repeal the
law providing that no postofflees be es
tablished at any county seat shall be
abolished or discontinued by reason of
any consolidation of postoffices under
the existing law, but should also au
thorize the postmuster general to ex
tend consolidation wherever, In his be
lief, the service may be thereby bene
The estimates for the fiscal year end
ing June 30, 1899, embrace $16,250,000
for compensation of postmpsters; for
Jerk hire, $11,300,000; rental and pur
chase of cancelling mac hines, $125,000;
rental, fuel and light, $1,750,000; mis
cellaneous Items and furniture, $200,
300, and advertising, $20,000.
A plea Is made for the purchase of
the postal stations In the larger cities
and that for the re classification of
postofflee clerks renewed. The esti
mate for the free delivery service for
the fiscal year ending In June, 1899, Is
$13,810,400. Since the close of the fis
cal year, June, 1897, the service has
been established In more than forty
offices and before the close of the cur
rent yenr all offices entitled to the ser
vice will receive Ihe same.
Rural free delivery has been put to
the test of practical experiment in
twenty-nine states and over forty dif
ferent routes. The co-operation of the
communities served has In every In
stance been effectively given. The gen
erally satisfactory results suggest the
feasibility of making rural delivery n
permanent feature of postal adminis
tration in the United States; not im
mediately or In all districts at on re.
but in some gradual and graduated
form regulated by the present experi

Attorney General Smyth moved to

Ova Great Feature MUsIng t» Now I're
CHICAGO. Oct. 22.—The Associat'd
I’rcss tonight obtained the one great
feature missing In the famous Luetgert
trial the sworn testimony of fue de
fendant himself. Adolph L. Luetgert.
Standing tonlgit In the gloomy JaM
adjoining the gr<ul-locklng gray atone
court building, In which his remark
able trial had at last been brought to
a finish, the burly sausage manufac
turer clapped the climax of extraordin
ary series of events which began with
his sensational bankruptcy and the al
leged frightful diabolism of boiling his
wife to death at midnight In a vat In
his factory cellar.
Tonight, closely following the final
result of the trial which has attracted
worldwide attention, Lu'tgert made
under oath n statement for the As
sociated press concerning the fearful
crime charged against him, the first
sworn statement yet made by him. and
the first statement of such kind ever
know In newspaper annuls. The affi
davit wuh put In writing, in due legal
form Hnd is certified to by a notary.
Kx-Judge William A. Vincent, the
leading counsel for the defendant, the
man to whose brains and skill and en
ergy Luetgert beyond doubt owes his
great legal victory, gave eons1 nt to the
affidavit being made.
The scene In the Jail when Leutgert
took the outh was us dramatic as the
circumstances were unique. In the
dimly lighted Jail corridor, Leutgert
standing erect and grasping tin Iron
bars that still kept him from liberty,
lifted his right hand and solemnly as
sented as the notary administered the
binding form.
Thu affidavit explicitly declares Luet
gerl’s Innocence. The document in
full Is as follows:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23,-Captaln
Hoover, comander of the Bering sea
patrol fleet, who has arrived In Wash
ington to attend the seal conference,
said today that the reports concerning
the scarcity of food in the Klondike
region are not, In his judgment, ex
aggerated. In the neighborhood of
Dawson City, he said, there arc about
5,bo0 miners, whose supply of provis
ions for the coming winter is no great
er than was barely sufficient for half
that number during lest winter, Great
suffering would be the Inevitable re
sult of this scarcity of food. Although
some of the more vigorous among the
miners might attempt to get a-vay on
the ice of the Yukon, the chances were
that a considerable number of these
would perish from hunger and expos

While the states uttomey refused to

of two of the principal wit
