Coughlin was passing behind tha witness stand on his way out of the courtroom when some one' cried: "Here's your wife, 'Dan,' here's your wife." Coughlin turned back. The jurors stepped aside »nd the crowd opened right and left to give free passageway to the sobbing woman, who rushed toward her husband. "Oh, 'Dan,' 'Dan,' Is it true, is it true?" she sobbed, as he threw both arms around her. This msstlng of husband and wife was hiddeu from the crowd by the wU- nesi box. The first kiss which the husband as a fre* man had given his wife In five yean waa bestowed in the shadow of the chair in which had sat men and women and charged the husband with one of the foulest crimes of the century. The jurors saw the embrace. When they came In several of them took their seats, with tears in W5»:r eyes. After many minutes more spent in congratulations Coughlin, accompanied by his wife, started for the county jail on the north side. En route the ex- prisoner was loudly cheered, and he acknowledged it by bows and smiles. Arrived at the Jail the papers containing his formal discharge from custody were handed him, and, this formality having been concluded, Daniel Congh- lln stood once more befofe the world a free man, after an experience such as is allotted to but few human beings.

WAMHI.NUTON, March 9. — Miss Mada- litic Vinton Pollard, plaintiff in the suit against Congressman W. C. P. Breckin- ririge, avoided the crowd of sensation seekers about the courtroom by appearing long before court convened. Miss Pollard was accompanied by her counsel. Judge Jere Wilson and Cahlcron Carlisle, and she entered the courtroom through the rear door, reserved for witnesses and members of the bar. She had also with her a sister of mercy from the Episcopal home in this city, where she has been staying recently, and a female friend. When liruckinridge entered the room Miss Pollard was talking 1 to Judge Wilson. Gluiicimr up her eyes met thnsy of Col. Hreckinridge. Without sc'cminjr to see him, she went on talking' to her counsel and apparently giucd into spiici. 1 . rinintifr Uurply Moved. Mr. Carlisle opened the case for the plaintiff. ta'iiiifj up tlie charges and in^wers seriatim. .lust as h« be- liis remarks .Miss Pollard covered im r eyes with her handkerchief and bcfian to tremble, and it looked for a minute us if there would l>o a fainting scene. She, however, succeeded in unlinin); her agitation. Mr. Carlisle read tlie complaint. "There are three creditable witnesses," lie said, "who will testify that the promise to marry was reiterated by the defendant in the presence of the plaintiff and at other times when she was uo.t present," .Summarizing what the evidence would be. Mr. Carlisle said the plaintiff was :i Kentucky girl, ambitious to learn. In 1ST6 her father died, leaving no estate. .Tames Rodes, an old gardener, was attracted by this and made her a proposition that he would pay for her education if she would marry him. She made a counter-proposition that if he paid for her education she -•would either marry him or pay back the money. This warf agreed to by Eodes and a paper containing the agreement actually drawn up and signed. Miss Pollard went to Wesleyan college la Cincinnati on Rodes' money. Then Mr, Carlisle told how Eodes began insisting that he be paid back or that she marry himj how, while worried over Rodes' demands, she was summoned home to see a dying sister in Lexington and met Col Breckinridge on the train. Hodes persisted in his demands and the plaintiff wrote to CoL Breckinridge. He answered her letter la person and took her oat driving. He came again. She protested against going in the closed carriage, but he said he bad a throat affection and she consented. Then the defendant accomplished her ruin. The story of the alleged illicit relationship existing between the plaintiff and the defendant was sketched briefly, and how after hi* wife died Mr. Breckinridge mad* her the promise of marriage, and reiterated it before several witnesses; and how he finally broke that promise by marrying Miss Louise Wing, of St. Louis. No D*M*gft for Seduction. ! , In conclusion, Mr. Carlisle- jaid that under the law of the District of Columbia the plaintiff would get no damages for her seduction; it was only tor the broken promises of marriage that she could secure redress. Attorney Wilson, for the plaintiff, complained that certain books which had figured la the affidavit*, and were important to the case, had been taken by the defendant's counsel, and asked that they be returned to the plaintiff. Mr. Butterworth read a notice which had been served on the defendant for the production of four volumes of Washington Irving, given to Attorney Stoll at Cincinnati, and insisted that • more definite description of the books should be given. Mill Pollard W.CfM. Just as Mr. Carlisle was rising to reply Miss Pollard broke out hysterically to her counsel, sobbing and making inarticulate exclamations, while the Episcopal sisUr of charity and her attorneys endeavored to calm her. Judge Bradley declared that if only four volumes had been taken the demand for a closer identification must be untenable. •'-(,• Mn. Blaca-burn TeitlttM. :'Mrs. Blackburn, widow of ex-Gov. Lulw Blackburn, of Kentucky, then took the stand and said «he had seen CoL.-Breckinridge and Miss PolJard to- gettfer in her own apartments in this city tin Good Friday in 1893. When she en tired the room Col. Breckinridge nied to tlie witness tnat tnere was any buch relationship between Mrs. Wing and himself, and begged Mrs. lllack- burn ta contradict these stories, which would, he said, injure him with hU family.
