HAD FOB THK COr.OSEI.. WASHI.NOTON, March ]'.).—Miss Pollard resumed the witness stand at the opening- of the Pollard-Breckia- ridgu trial. Several questions were asked by Mr. Carlisle In direct examination as soon an tlio plaintiff had taken the stand, the first one whether bhe hud ever been married, to which the answer was: "No, Mr. Carlisle." A l)lr«rt CliarK«- "Who was tho father uf your first child?" WILS the next question, to which she replied: "Mr. Jireekin- riclfri!."

Hrooklnrlilffc'n SiuoiMti Tongue. The first night they were together they had walked the streets of Cincinnati, as they had done the next day after meeting 1 in the pub- lie library. • Col. lircckini-idge had told her that he would oversee her education; that he would return the monay advanced for her schooling by Mr. Ehodcs. liefore taking her to the houne of Sarah Ooss, at Lexington, Col. Breekinrldge had arranged that he should send a telegram to the school purporting to come from her mother, which he did. 'Did the relations which you have testified to with Col. Hreckinridgc continue after the 2«th of April, 1893?" inquired Mr. Carlisle, that being the date of the secret marriage to Mrs. Wing. "They did, up to and including the 17th day of May, 1808, which was the last time I saw CoL Breckinridge," she Bald, and was about to make further explanations when the defendant's lawyers interposed objections. After these passages the sparring- between Mr. Bntterworth and the young womai» was resumed where it hsd been dropped Friday. Many detailed questions concerning her early life, her studies, aunueinents, friends and ambitions were asked, to all of which She returned replies th-.it could have [fiven no comfort to her opponents. 8ho Wanted to Write, Her early ambition had been to write, Miss Pollard declared, and Col. Breckinridge had told her that she had wonderful talent in that line. She had also desired to teach. "Do you know the value of character for a teacher?" Mr. Butterworth asked. "Most assuredly I do. Never so much as to-day," cumo the prompt reply! "but all this was swept away by one act." Further on she explained that she understood the requirements for good character in a woman were the same as Lu a man. The next few replies were delivered In a tear-broken voice, and she seemed to bo on the point of breaking down. As Mr. Butterworth went on to press her for her reasons for leaving her aunt in Pittsburgh when a girl the crying increased. She told Mr. Butterworth that she wanted to answer him satisfactorily, but he seemed "so exasperating." In the course of the inquiry about her early aspirations and her readings, she said that the day she had met Col. Breckinridftc at the seminary she had been reading "The Gates Ajar," by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps. Hooki of Her Youth. "I understand you to Bay that you had read no literature which could not be put in the hands of a modest girl?" the cross-examiner asked. "9ne moment," interposed M,r. Wilson, proceeding to arguo that this peculiar line of questioning had been pursued so far, so continuously and so repeatedly that it was becoming oppres- give. Mr. Butterworth said: "The plaintiff has put in her character here as the main point of issue. She has surrounded herself so far with an atmosphere of perfect purity." He wanted learn whether she had carried on me lino of reading which would naturally suggest inquiry about certain lines of lit" which would strengthen her to resist temptation or imbue a tendency to compromise with the approaches of evil. "There are three parties to this suit," he concluded, "the plaintiff, the defendant, the public." ObJoctloiM SUHtuloeil, It was not the lino of questioning but the repetition-of.it to which he objected, Mr. Wilson urged, and the court sustained him. ; • .-wore you old enough to take care ol yourself at «><» Weslffyan seminary?" •was th* ft«t question.

Tlio Publla KciirlmuDded. This allusion to the well-known sobriquet of the Kentucky orator provoked an audible laugh, which caused Judge Bradley to rap on his desk with a sharp reprimand. "I want the public to understand that this is not a show," he said. "1 am sorry so many think it their duty to coinu here, and if there is any demonstration of approval or snickering I will order the room to be cleared." Time Hock HurrlttKO. There was much questioning as to whether she knew certain persons in Bridgeport, Ky., where she had stopped in 1882 and 1S8S. Some of the names sho did not remember, others she recalled, among them Alexander Julian, the blind man, with whom the defense will endeavor to prove Miss Pollard retired at a country house sifter a mock marriage.

"WASIII.NOTOH, March jy.—The democratic members of the senate on finance have completed their work on the tariff bill. The principal change is in the sugar schedule, and that has been modified so as to take into account the color as well as the polarization of. sugar. This will add one-eighth of a cent per pound on the color test so as to insure to the refiner tnis much protection. This is In accordance with the original intention nl the committee, but it has been claimed that the bill as at first reported to the full committee would discriminate against the refiners. It U understood that the bill will be amended so as to make positive declara, tion for the abrogation of the reciprocity treaty made under the McKin» ley act. It is also probable that the clause in the bill abrogating thu Hawaiian treaty will be stricken out. These, together with the restoration of ln"e present law, regarding the tax on domestic cigars, will be the principal changes made. The lead ore duty and whisky tax, as 1 well as the duty plii.ced upon coal and iron ore, will remain as placed in tho bill by the democratic members. Thera will bo a few changes in the fruit schedule, and 'a low minor articles which were taken from the free list and made dutiable will bo restored to tho free list. The democratic members of the finance committee submitted their amendments to the tariff bill to the republicans at 2 p. m. SITUATION AGAIN CRITICAL. Commliiiloner* Orr and Martin WU1 Not Abide t>T » Supreme Court OecUlon. DENVER, Col., March 18.—Gen. Mo- Cook on Sunday withdrew the federal troops from this city to Fort Logan. The situation is still critical, for Orr and Martin, acting on the advice of their co.unsel, declare they will not be governed by the opinion of the supreme court, but will iasist on holding office until a decision is obtained in a regular manne* In the case pending in the district court. Their attorneys, Wells, Taylor & Taylor, hare definitely decided they would not take part in the argument, and the hearing, they say, will be ex parte and not binding. It is even doubtful if the supreme court will give an answer to the questions submitted by the governor. In that event the governor may renew his attempt to clean out the police department by force. DRSVKB, Co)., March 18.—About 11 o'clock a. in. after a conference by telephone with Adjt Gen. Tarsney, in charge of the slate militia at Cripple Creek, Gov. Walte issued an order calling all the troops to their homes. Gen. Tarsney advised the governor that after a careful canvass of the situation he was satisfied that the county authorities at Cripple Creek could cope with the situation and that the interference of the state militia authorities was not needed. .

March 19.— Whether Coxoy and his army at peace, if one is gathered, can be legally (suppressed as a public menace before they start from Massillon on the journey to Washington next Sunday Is a question on which Gov. McKinley was induced to talk, Hum^li with evident reluctance. However, whec seen, Gov. McKinley asked n number of questions about the tinny Rchcme. He -minted to know if Gov.

Under the Ohio laws the absence of the governor would not make much difference, for the mayor of Massillon or the sheriff of Stark county could order out the Eighth regiment if the soldiers were needed. Local militia in Ohio can be called out without a request to the jfovcrnor. may be added that the members of the regiment expect to have some work. In the JSuckeye state the militia is frequently called out on slighter provocation than in Pennsylvania, Striking Miner • to Join. MASSILLON, O., March 19.— Comman dcr Coxey and Liout. Browne were in town Saturday. They had spoken the night before at Trotter's Hill, a min ing camp which is now sorely racked by a'strike. Five hundred miners were at the meeting 1 . With scarcely an ex neption the men indorsed the common weal march to Washington and many of them assured the speakers that they would accompany the expedition. FoeliDt- in r«nn»ylviuil». There is grave apprehension that the army will meet with trouble in Pennsylvania. The column will move through one ot the most depressed industrial districts in the state, and it is firmly believed that the army will bo joined by thousands of idle men before it reaches Pittsburgh. The mayor of Beaver Falls, a town through which the army is scheduled to pass, hfcs publicly declared that he will stop the column the instant it swings into his territory. He argues that the army will be nothing more nor less than a band of vagabonds, without discipline or conscience. To bring- such an army Into Beaver Falls, he says, would be the crowning misfortune of a town which has been paralyzed for a year or more by industrial conflicts. On the other hand the village of Economy, a rich communistic community, through which the army is to pass after leaving Beaver Falls, has offered to feed and shelter the com- monwealers for a day. The offer comes from one of the wealthiest men of the town and is indorsed by a score of citizens. It is the belief of the men who look upon the pilgrimage in a conservative way that this army will be so unwieldy after it enters Pennsylvania that It will slip away from the control ol Commander Coxey' and become a noiny, pilla/f- ingmob, preying upon the hencoops and smokehouses of farmers and inviting and eventually receiving a stern reception from the troops of the state. naug-hten of &• Ref-lment. Numerous applications have been received from enthusiastic women who wish to join the common weal. Gen. Coxcy has decided that his army must not entangle itself with women. "If if were an ordinary military campaign," he says, "wo might use our women sympathizers as curses, but we expect no bloodshed, and under such circumstances a nurse would be an expensive luxury." Lowell L. Marvin, of Falroouth, Ky., proposes to join the army with 200 men, and C, O'Brien, of Lagro, Ind.. promises to be present with 000 of the unemployed. Will Gov. 1'attUoo Stop Them? Saturday several letters rescued Coxey and Browne from various, parts of Pennyslvania saying that Oov. Pattl- son has ordered Sheriff John Moon, of Green county, to meet the army on the state line and read the riot act. Th» general at once wired the governor and received the following reply, which h« •egards as highly noncommittal: "Tbo sheriff of Green county knows hi» daw and I have no douut will fully , perform every requirement of tho law.* _ ^ _ Glanwi^kcn i"»i« °« «« water.
