WASHINGTON, April S.— On Monday Jerc M. Wilson took Col. lireckin- ridg-o in hand for cross-examination after recess. The first questions were directed toward eliciting from the defendant admissions that in his early law practice friends had been • obliged to make good sums of r money improperly appropriated from clients. Col. Breckinriclge was obliged to explain his connection with the Presbyterian church, which had been passive rather than active. Ho had lived in Lexington within four squares of the house occupied by Sarah Goss and had known the character of tho place for twenty years. Lie- also admitted that he had visited the house before ho wont there with Miss Pollard. When the arrangement was made with Miss Pollard to meet at the Goss slace, it was, he said, at her suggcs- ion. lie was surprised to find that sho cnew of the place. Had she not suggested it, he would not havo taken her there, as he did not wish to place such a girl as he supposed her to be in the lower of the Uoss woman. Sprung a Trap. Having secured tho statement that Srockinridgo. had written no letters to Madeline Pollard in 1SSO, Mr. Wilson prung- something very like a trap by Iropping into a line of questioning vhieh indicates thut ho lius in re- ervo testimony to show that the H'mber from Kentucky dictated etlers through u typewriter at he capitol. Then for thu iirst time lie defendant seemed to lose his tem- er and made most strenuous denials, 'lie typewriter, whose testimony is ext in order, is a Miss Louise Lowell, o.\v a clerk in the treasury department. The colonel .said he could not remember such a person. "You have said you wrote no letters to Miss Pollard in ]SSO," continued Mr. Wilson. "Now, did yon not take to Louise Lowell in February o£ ISSU a manuscript letter beginning 'My Dear Sister Louise' and ask her to render it into typewriting?" "i decline to answer that unless you show me the paper you are asking the questions from. I have given you notice to produce all the letters you have from mu and you have said you havo none." The colonel was for tho first time petting somewhat excited. It will be remembered that he had denied tbe statement of Miss Pollard that ho had addressed letters to her under the name of Louise Wilson. His attorneys backed him up in his refusal, but Judge liradley decided that the question was a fair one. The witness continued to deny that lie had any recollection of having written such a letter. Judge Wilson then asked him if ho had not, after two or three months of this correspondence, cautioned his dear sister Louise not to leave the letters around, as curious persons might search bureau drawers. 1 never under any circumstances wrote any such letter," replied the colonel, and then he tapped the witness -box sharply as he asserted: "If any such letter is in existence it is a forgery, and if notes of any such there ure, a perjury." Mr. Wilson requested a specific, account of all Miss Pollard hud said during 1 tho first visit o£ CoL Brcck- inridge to the \Vesleyan seminary, anil that interview was again dissected, the colonel denying that Miss Pollard had said it was part of her agreement with Rhodes to repay the money he had advanced for her schooling if sho did not marry him, but explained that sho had asked if it would not be all right if she repaid the money. He said: "There is an impression on my mem ory, although I cannot remember her language after ten years, that she said she had given him even a higher proof of her intention to marry him. Then I told her that she could not afford_not to marry him." Sulito Klllo XJo«8 Nat Apply to ]VIon.. "And that same rule would apply to a man under the same circumstances?" "Well, that is a question of casuistry or sociology. I would not care to answer. If you ask me whether I would adviso a young woman who had illicit relations with a man to marry him, 1 would say yes; but with a man it would be different, for the knowledge of it by the public would destroy the woman and would only injure the man." "Would not hurt the man?" "Oh, it would not injure him so much ns the woman. Society looks upon these things differently. If a young man should come to me under certain circumstances, 1 would advise him to marry the woman; under other circumstances I would say to him,-better death or hell. I am not talking of the "Oh no," interrupted Mr. Wilson with a contemptuous air, "I was not asking you about Justice," ' Acknowl.dfed HI* BaMUMI. The witnws In response *° V»»Ptfea«. repeated the story of tlie carriage ride. Judge \Vilf,on asked him: "Did you give her any friendly advice on that occasion?" "1 did not." "You were a man of 47 and she a girl of 17 to ar.'" "That was all true and much more. No man in America had less-excuse for such an action than 1, with the domestic surroundings 1 then had. 1 havo attempted to make iio excuse for it; it just happened so." "And the fact that she was a young- girl in school makes it nil the worse?' "You cannot frame words too strong to characterize it. 1 have not attempted to justify it or even defend it, and all the hell I havo suffered since then I havo deserved." "Then J understand you to say that the enormity of the act cannot be overestimated?" "There is but one punishment which I have not deserved, and that is to marry thu woman who was concerned with me in the act." After some further cross-examination court adjourned for the day, with tho witness still on the stand. That "Kl»tcr Loiilxo" trttnr. WASHINGTON, April 13.—When Col. lireckinridge was on the witness stand Monday he denied h;fving written any letter addressed to "My Dear Sister Louise," and ho had denied vigorously ever having had envelopes addressed on a, typewriter to "Miss Pollard, 58 South llubbard street, Lexington, Ky." The pl:iintin"s counsel were unable to produce either letter or envelopes. Hut they brought with them to tho morning session a mite of :i woman. This was Louise Lowell, the typewriter in question. After a long debate between counsel on tlie admissibilily of her testimony she told a brief tale of very great interest to Hreckinridjjo. She told of having received from him the manuscript of the "My Dear Sister Louise" letter, of copying it and returning the manuscript, and copy to him. She was willing to tell the substance of the letter, t*oo, but Mr. 3>ut- tcrworth objected und the judge sustained the objection. She was permitted, however, to toll of having 1 addressed envelopes to "Miss Pollard, 5(J South Ihibbavd street, Lexington, Ky." Kept :v Mcmoriindum. The little woman brought forth a high card in the shape of a memoran- ON THE WARPATH Gov. Tillrnan Will Enforce Law at All Hazards. the People Who Stand in His Way Wil Get Hurt—Will Interfere with Police Powers in Cities. chim book in which was inscribed in her handwriting a minute of the trans- actiou and trumped lireckinridg-e's card of denial. She was not in the habit of making such full memorandum of her work, sho admitted. "Ah," murmured this defense. "How came you to make this special entry?" they were about to ask, sure of tripping her; but, before they could do so Mr. Wilson asked the question himself. And the little woman replied very promptly: "Feeling suro that sooner or later 1 should hear more of Miss Pollard, 1 made a memorandum, not wishing to trust to my memory." The judge having ruled out examination concerning the contents of the letter, Mr. ISutterworth made a brief cross-examination, asking- Mrs. Lowell where she had worked and for how long. She had kept a record of the work she did for congressmen, with the amounts received, in an account book. She had an independent recollection of the address of Miss Pollard, since the letter had made a very deep impression orj her mind. In her book she had merely entered the amount of work done, then the name of tho party, then the amounts charged, BO that no congressmen uued waste worry for fear that the ltd per will rise up to {jet. them into trouble. Mr. IJutterworth and his associates tried hard to shake the witness' story by cross-examination, but they did not do it, and when she left the box the telling effect of her testimony was ap parent. Denied by [trcckliiridge. Thou Breckinridgo entered the box. There was no alacrity in his movement this time. Me- admitted that Miss Lowell, whom ho recognized, had done work for him, but ho denied flatly having given her the "My Dear Sister Louise" letter or having had any such letter' written. Ho quali fied his emphatic answer of Monday night about the addressed envelopes by saving DOW that he "did not recollect giving the plaintiff's address to Miss Lowell," though he "may have had her put her address on one envelope containing civil service papers." He then reiterated his flat denial about addressing the package of envelopes. Thereupon the court took a recess. >UHB 1'ollMixl Kcmemberfl the JLcttcr. There was another diversion after the recess when Miss Pollard nvas put in the witness-box. This was only done after a long argument between counsel. She told of having received the "My Dear Sister Louise" letter, and said that sho had often written to Breck- inridgo addressing him as "My Spitfire," She was subjected to cross-examination, and made some that replies to Mr. Bntterworth. But she clung to her story. Her stay in tho box was short, and was followed by the re-entry of Breckinridge, who again denied writing or sending the letter. O'Neill Seated. WASHINGTON, April 3.— The house has "settled the O r NeiU-Joy contested election case by seating O'Neill, the contestant. The Tote was 155 to 8& BEKIOUS TItOUHLE ).OOK):» FOIL COLUMBIA, S. C., April 3.—Gov. Tillman addressed the troops and volunteer countrymen in front of the state house. He declared that the dispensary law should be obeyed and that he intended to issue a proclamation assuming control of the municipal police in every town in the state. lie would compel them to enforce the dispensary laws. If they did not obey he would call the legislature together and have a measure enacted which would enable him to remove them and put in their places men who would obey. The governor was repeatedly and loudly cheered by the troops. There were cries of: "We'll stand by you, governor; we are at your back." Dnt-s Not l-'«rar Wur. The governor said he did not fear civil w;ir. He continued: "It will not come uiul CUINOI come, because tile pcoule urc ill Die »iilii;i! :u:U inlcr.d lo rc- mu!n tK-re.

At this point Mr. tearly, a cousin of Mr. Norment, who was killed by state constables, yelled out: "Why dou't you obey the law yourself?" This created a big commotion in the crowd. One of the governor's sympa- thisers yelled out: "Shoot him," and both factious rushed up. The governor called for siluuee, and Chief of Police KadeHiV jumped off his horse and grabbed liarly, commanding' order, aui! took him away. The governor, continuing-, said that those who were opposing him imwt submit, adding: KubHIIon Muni Uct Out of Hie Way.

An order was then read to the troops commanding 1 them to return to their homes and extending thanks to the gallant and patriotic soldiers and citizens who, at a moment's notice, dropped their various avocations and pursuits to respond to his call. Practical Dictatorship. It is expected that tho governor will at once send members of his staff to various cities where the police officials havo taken no stops to protect the whisky constables and will delegate to them the right to direct the movements of the police. If ho should do so there will doubtless bo more disorder growing out of the complications between local and state authorities, just as there was t\vo weeks ago in Denver. Cltloi Will Kc/llKf, Excitement is ut fever heat over the contetnplated action of the governor, and dispatches from all the large towns in tho state say .that any effort to interfere with local control of the police powers will meet with resistance. A report is current that ho will oruer a raid on places in Florence and Darling-ton against which his spies have evidence. With his soldiers to back up the action of the constabulary he means to force his opponents to show their hands and have their issues settled in a decisive way. liackcd by Country I'opullltH. Various opinions are expressed as to the outcome of this strategic move, but it is generally agreed that if he carries out his plan further fighting will be sure to follow, although, if tho truth were known, the citizens of Darlington who started the row on Friday last are very much cowed by tho vigorous mauner in which the governor has met their revolutionary outbreak so far. They admit that the desertion of the militia has strengthened his cause and brought to his aid thousands of populists from the agricultural districts who will do his fighting. The number of recruits to his volunteer army is surprising, a;i it was not believed he could raise 1,000 men to take the field against tho citizens who oppose his whisky stores. The povern- or's adherents claim to-day that he can put 20,000 men where they are needed in forty-eight hours. There is no doubt that he can secure the aid of more men than the militia contained before it deserted him. Military Selin the Wlroi. FLOREXCK, S.
