WASHIXHTOX, March 20.—When the Pollard-IJrockinridjro trial begun at 10 o'clock a, m. interest centered in the decision of Judge liradley with reference to the admission of certain depositions taken in Ohio and Kentucky in behalf of Col. lircclnnridgc, to which objection was mjulo by Miss Pollard's attorneys. Argument on the legal points raised Jig-ainist these depositions was heard by Judge Jiradley Saturday, .ludge Bradley took up specific objections. Tha tirst of theso objectionable depositions was that of a man named Brand, who refused to answer whether he anj Miss Pollard had maintained improper relations. "A very odd refusal,"Judge liradley said, "in view of the fact that , he had admitted tli.it, though a married man, he frequented houses of prostitution," What objection tho deponent could hnvo to answering the question the judge could not set 1 . A deposition of one Kaufmin was admitted, but Judge Bradley said if he could have suppressed the depositions of Brand, Cofliu and on« Hawkins on the ground that the were too filthy to be rend, he would have done so, but unfortunately ho could not overlook their legal rights. The decision seema to bo a slight victory for Miss Pollard's attorneys. WANT DOCTORS FOR A JURY. COLQUITT IS DEAD.
