Professor Dawea , the new superintendent
of the Nebraska Institute for the Deaf and
Dumb , gave out a statement yesterday
through the columns of the World-Herald
to thet effect that the hooka ot thu Institute
had been carried away by Prof. Glllcsplo ,
the former superintendent , as well as a
small balance In two funds belonging to
the Institute accounts The statement Im
plied that Prof Glllespiu had taken these
things to embarrass the Hew management ,
and Insinuated that he did It to cover up
the reports madu by thu late Investigating
committee , that no record might be had of
his adminlHtratlon as superintendent of thu
Institute Mr Glllesple , when asked
about the allegations , said
"I have the books nnd records In my pos
session , and told the new superintendent
and the Board of Trustees that I hud them.
There was nothing Hcclut or underhanded
about It. Further , I um ready to turn them
over to the statu whenever asked for them.
The Hoard of Trustees knew i had tbo books ,
for thu members suggested that I leave
them at the Institute and that If I wanted
them to maku an examination on mj own
account I could secure them on a proper
order , but I replied that 1 had had one ex
perience with thu representatives of thu

accessible to expla'ii any Item which might
need explanation , the committee took the
books down town to a hotel and kept them
there till It found apparently what It was
looking for. The expert worked on the
books In secret. He didn't know whether
I could make a satisfactory explanation of
the accounts or not , for he never naulred.
He evidently went en the theory that he
thoroughly understood every Item In the
books , covering a period of nineteen years.
"It was no grievous mistake for this com
mittee to remove the records from the In
stitute , and I considered It would likewise
bo no serious offense If I should retain pos
session of them for a tew days.
"Tho committee spent over two months In
Its down town secluded nook searching for
something which might be made to uhow
up to. my disadvantage , and then refused ,
after repeated promises to the contrary , to
furnish me a copy of the report based upon
Its startling discoveries.
"The general substance of Itn findings was
given out to a few political friends In this
city several days beforu It was publicly an
nounced that the Investigation bad been
concluded. The report was then scut out
ovei thu state that I was short In my ac-
coiui s with the state. I was given no op
portunity to examine the Items upon which
the alleged shortage was based , and these
records were all that stood between my
character and the report given out by the
commlitee An examination of the records
by other competent bookkeepers might show
wherein the tnvcbtlgatlng committee was at
fault and It was my purpose to have that
examination made before the records passed
Irretrievably Into the hands of the people
who had trumped up these charges against
I had received anything but fair treat
ment at their hands frwom the time the com-
rulttceo began Its Investlgitions till I was
removed , and I feel that I was justified In
doubting their good faith In the promise to
give me- access to the records after I sur
rendered the ofilcc , and taking advantage of
the possession which I had or the records ,
that I might , by the aid of disinterested and
competent bookkeepers , secure a statement
of the reil condition of affairs which was
denied rno by the pa'tlsan committee which
had charge of the Investigation.
"The records , however , are subject to the
orders of the state authorities , and I am
ready to make a tcttlement with the state
whenever I am given an opportunity tn ex
amine the report of the Investigating com
mittee and compare It with the books kept
during my administration of the Institute. "

that thu lack will bo rumedled without

CHICAGO , Sept. 18 Witnesses followed
each other In the trial of Adolph L Luetgcrt
this morning with unusual rapidity. They
were called to straighten out the tangled
ends of former testimony preliminary to
the prosecution's announcement that UB case
was closed.
Abraham Seeloy , a butcher at 769 West
Monroe street , caused a mild sensation when
he announced that at the public sale at
Luetgert's factory some weeks ago he pur
chased nineteen bottles of mineral water. H
has been the contention that on the night of
May 1 , when Mrs Luetgert Is said to have
been murdered , Luetgert ) not fueling well
sent Frank Dlalk to a drug store for medi
cine. Blalk himself confirms this and de
clares Luetgert told him to get a bottle of
mineral water. Subsequent developments
have shown that the sausage maker had at
least ! hirtj-elght bottles of this water on
hand when he sent Blalk away after more
that night.
Prof. Del a Fontaine , Sergeint Spsogler of
the police department end a number of po
licemen were called to the witness stand to
Identify the various exhibits of boned and
other articles and to tell where they got
them , and where these exhibits had been kept
during the progreti of the trial. Deputy
Sheriff Fred PIster of Racine , WIs. , a nepfccw
of Mrs Christine Feldt , was called to the
Etand to Identify the knife Mrs Fcldt saUV
Luetgert had given her the day before his
arrest , n.d Deputy Sheriff Plstor said Mrs
Feldt handed him the knife In July. Tire
blades looked as If they had not been opened
for months , and the handle was rustj' . When
the witness opened the knife he stated tw < i
big crusts of nut fell off the knife.
When the prosecution called Frank Blalk
to the witness stn d as ono of Its last two
witnesses to show the motive for the alleged
murder of Mrs. Luctgert there was every
prospect that the state would rest Its case
today , as far as the direct evidence was con
cerned. But when an attempt was made to
show Luetgert's alleged relations with Mary
Slemmcring and other women the defense
entered a vigorous objection Attorney Vin
cent protested that this line ot evldei cu was
highly Improper and he objected to It as In
competent He declared that no motive could
be drawn from It an. ! iHat It would simply
tend to prejudice the minds of the Jurora At
torney Phalen for defense said he would not
object to this evidence. Thu division of
counsel for the defense on this point oc-
casloned surprise. Attorney Vincent de
clared the evidence was only collateral and
that Its only effect would bo to blast the
reputation ot Mary Shimmering , who was to
bo a witness for the defente.
Judge Tuthlll took the disputed point un
der advisement and adjourned court until
next Tuesday morning The adjournment
over Monday was taken to permit 'the de
fense ample time to prepare for Its opening
statement and the line of defense to be
