Tlite critical situation baa been brought about by the determination ot Oov, Waite to oust the two members of the fire und police board, Jackson Orr and D. J. Martin, for protecting gam- bJIng houses, and to place in office thtlr successor*, H. D. Barnes and Dfnnis Mulltnn. Messrs. Orr and Martin, having obtained from- the district court an injunction restraining Gov. Waito from forciblj' removing them, were determined to resist to the utmost. Whereupon the governor decided to ignore the court entirely and called upon the militia to assemble. His orders were to proceed to the city hall and take it by foreu if necessary. The city ofllcials accordingly kept the entire police force at tho city hall all day under orders to- resist tho soldiers if attacked. In addition several hnndrfid'of: the toughest oiti/etis, many of \vhbm Imvu records ns man-killers, were RwoVn in an deputies by Sheriff KurclilnaU and placed in the city hail as reinforcement (it the police department Knch deputy \viis armed with two six-shooters und instructed to use them in case of necessity. Tho police wero armed with shotguns in addition to their clubs and receivers. Soldlerit Begin to Assemble. It was e. most exciting day. Early in tho morning tho militia, constituting the First regiment Colorado national guards, began to assemble at the armory and the Chaffoo light artillery, «onsisting of three Galling g-uns and six ten-poundors, were put in readiness to march. At the city hall all the patrolmen and the entire police force assembled at 10 o'clock, at which MNVEB CITY HALL. tim« shotguns anil • revolvers wer.. placed in each man's hands. Every approach to tho ball was guarded and no one. allowed to enter unless his business was imperative. The mayor was helpless and remained away from the city hall. Oov. Waitc utaid in his private rooms at tho Douglas and coul'd not be seen. Both sides declared they would not back down and bloodshed seemed inevitable. March to tho City Mull. At 2 p. m. 20 ° militiamen marched to the city hall, planted two 12-pounder puns and two O»tlins«, and demanded i surrender of tho two members of the flre and police board who refuse to be retqoved. The city ball was occupied by armed men and the windows and roofs of adjacent building were crowded. The street* held thousands ot men and women. Brig. Oen. Brook* approached the curb 1» frptt of »!>• >all and was by a committee Jrom tne cnumuer 01 commerce, who asked for time that a conference mi^ht be had with the governor. Committees from tho same body waited upon the members of the police board. Hitting in their office under the strong protection of the police, and also upon the governor. The governor refused to ulter his determina;- tion to nro upon the city hall and take iv by force. The deposed members of the police board declined to withdraw, and at 0 o'clock, when it was learned that bloodshed would bo inevitable, the chamber 01 commerce men gave up all hopes of a peuoeubltf solution of the difficulty. Mutters were so serious at times that the lynching of the chief executive ot tbe stuto of Colorado was talked of, and hud blood been slu'd in his determination to take possession of the city hall Thursday a mob would most certainly have made an effort to hang him up to a lump post. Federal Troopn Called For. At the critical moiycnt, when all efforts of leading citizens of the tmvn had failed to get either side to back down the governor called upon. Gen, McCook, commander of the department of Colorado, und the matter of preserving the peace went into the strong hands of tho federal government. Gen. Me- Cook had been prepared for just such an emergency and the troops at Fort Logan, near thia city, wera in readiness to march. He wired them to come, and a special train awaiting such an order soon brought five companies of regulars to the scene. Called All of tbe Mllitl*. At 8:45 p. m. the governor withdrew his forces and Issued the following proclamation: "All companies of the national guard of Colorado are httreby notified to bo In readiness at tne Inspection armories to respond to call to come to Denver, which will D« issued Friday ot thli week. DAVIS H. WAITS, Governor. "DiHviR, Cot, Thursday.« p. m." The withdrawal of the state troops from the scene of action was the result of ft conference between Oov. Waite and Adjt Gen.

Threatening demonstrations have been made against the governor, who remains at big residence under military guard, and ho was reported much alarmed as to his safety before the arrival of the United States troops. A detachment of militia surrounds tho governor's residence. A warrant for his arrest has been sworn out a«d will be served by a posse of deputy sheriffs. AH I« gnitit. Tho city is comparatively quiet, all hostilities havin/ been suspended awaiting the result'of the conference between Oen. McCook, commanding-the government troops, and Gov. Waito and his advisers. The police force, greatly reinforced since Thursday, is still under arms at tlie city hall. It is understood their fighting 1 force numbers about MO men, and that under no cir- cumh'.anoos will they surrender. A«k» .tlcVook t" I.('«»<•• Gov. W:iite has addressed a letter to Oen. McCook asking that tho government troops he "withdrawn 1 from the city because tho general refuses to assist in carrying out the governor's purpose, but will simply confine himself to maintaining the peace. The public sentiment is growing for a demand that both sides shall submit their cause to arbitration by the biipreme court McCook's InMLruotlonft. WASHINGTON, March 10.—Tho cabinet considered the situation of affairs at Denver at its meeting. After the session it was understood that Oen. AlcCook's instructions limited his action to s\ich measures as might be necessary to protect United States property. He is not authorized or directed to take part iu the political controversy in progress in Colorado on- one side or the other; either at the request of Gov.

Miss Pollard Testifies in Her Own Behalf, She Describes Her Companionship with Congressman Breckinridge— The Latter Secretly Married. HEB OW.X WIT.NES8, WABHISGTOJ? March 16.—in the Pol- lard-Breckinridjre trial the first witness of the day was the plaintiff, herself. Miss Pollard took a scat on the witness stand directly facing Col Wreckiuridge. She testified that her father was a saddler by trade, and died in 3876. Ho was a roaaon and an odd-fellow of high degree, members of the grand lodges of both orders in the state of Kentucky attending 1 his funeral. She Meet* Bnckmrldye. "fie loft no estate," she continued. "Two of my sisters were taken to livo in the Odd Fellows' home. My mamma said I was born on the ?0th of November, 381)0," She had always supposed that to be the date of her birth and had attached it to all her papers condition. Miss I'ollard'n rrame waa shaking with suppressed"emotion when bhii was led from thi> courtroom on th« arm of the elderly *iNtt*r from ihe how* of refuge. Itrpcklnrldgft S<H v rrtlj Married. NEW Yoiiii, March ]<5.—Oue of th« sensations promised in the J'ollard* Breckinridge breaoli-of-proiiii.se case at Washington and one that the Kentucky congressman'* friends think will at least assist in ihrowin/r .Miss Pollard's claim for SM.OOO ilumapcs out of court was sprung in this city to-day. K amounts to nothing less than official proof that Congressman. Breckinridfje had bo?n married by a- New York clergyman on April 39, when.on May 18of Jastyear.he declared before the superintendent of police in Washington that ho intended to) mat* Miss Pollard hi« wife on May 81. This was two .nonths before his publia marriage to Mrs. Wing in July. The evidence thus presented has a doublo effect. It gives an unpleasant, sidelight to the character of Col. Brecldn- ridge, while, at least as far as that particular promise to marry Miss Pollard is concerned, it knocks the prround from under her feet. Jf Col. Breckinridge was married, on April 29 his promise on May IS to marry anyone else amounted, of course, to on file In the civil service bureau, j nothing except deceit and treachery. "Mr. Breckinridge indorsed all those The board of health may ask Dr. papers," she said, gazing directly at him. "When Krupp'i Grcnt Gun Qulvkly Loaded.

March 1ft,—Nearly 8,000,000 bushels of grain, loaded in vessels, u* held in this city because insurance cm- not be secured until April- did Mr. Breckinridge meet you in 1892?" asked Mr. Carlisle. '•In one of the last days of August, 1602. He met me at the Baltimore & Ohio depot in Washington. He put both arms around me, kissed me, drew my arm through his and led me to » carriage. He told me that all his children had grown up, that he b*d determined to marry me, and I »aid 1 would marry him." She had stopped at 85 Lafayetti square for a few days during that visit, had seen Mr. Breckinridga every day, and added: "He said that be had married his second wife fourteen months after the death of his first wife, and a year after tbe death of hit second wife would not be too soon to marry me. I told him we oufrht not to marry for two years, and proposed to go with Miss Willard on a school trip for young ladies in Europe, lie said I must not go and leave him living in rooms, a thing he had not done for thirty years. lie put It on the ground that I would bo selfish to go, and I did Rot." Letter front Gra.r f!s>W*w. A letter dated Gray Gables. Buzzard's Bay, Mass., iu October, 1S9J, from Miss ] Catherine Willard, and which referred , to the proposal that Miss Pollard joiu ; the European party, was read to the , jury. Col. Brcckinridge had paid tho expenses of Miss Pollard on her New York visit in the fall of 1S92. \Vhen the colonel was iu Washington she saw him every feiv days. Tho question of marriage was resumed at this time, and although no date was fixed, the colonel always insisted that a year after liis wife's death, | which would be in the spring ot LK9S, would be the time most suitable (o him. Miss Pollard said that onco, on a lecturing- trip to New Eng- : land, she had accompanied Mr. Breckinridge. During- her stay at Jirs. Thomas' at 1918 H street, Washington, j IS'J'2 and ISO.'J, she had seen Col. Breck- | inridge always once a day, sometimes twice a day, and often in the evening. She spoke of the engagement to Mrs. Thomas. Corroborates Mrs. Itlacbburii. The visit to Mrs. Blackburn was also rehearsed by Miss Pollard, who declared that Col. Breckinridge bad introduced her to Mrs. Blackburn with these words: "I want to place this young lady under your protection, for I intend to make her my wife. She is a great deal to me now and will be a great deal more." She repeated the circumstances of Col. Breckinridge's visit to Mrs. Blackburn, when he had explained to her the en< gagement, and spoke also of the in stance whon Col. Breckinridge had placed his arm around her, sayinjr: "He was most affectionate and most kind." "I asked Mr. Breckinridge then, as he was talking of going to Chicago, to name tho day when he would marry me. I think I knelt down beside him and put one arm over his shoulder, but Mrs. Blackburn objected." This was on Sunday, May 14, 1894. Miss Pollard's version of her relations with James C. Rhodes did not vary essentially from the accounts heretofore published, and which arc familiar to newspaper readers. She went to the St. James hotel in Cincinnati in February, 1886, by Col. Breckinridge's direction, to consult with female physicians. She was particularly enjoined not to say anything that would connect Col. Brcckinridge with, her condition at that time. Breoklurldc* Under * Fats* Name. In reply to questions by Mr. Carlisle, Miss Pollard said Col. Brcckinrid(fc furnished the money to defray her expenses at the Cincinnati and at the foundling asylum, and that Col. Breck- inridfre was the father of the child born May 29, 1885. Col. Breckinridge had taken her to the Blsraere In 1887, where she passed'under the nama ot Mrs. Foster, Col. Breckinridge representing himself as Mr. fatter.
