HrecUnrt<]£o Hud Only a Friendly Inter- cut in MlKH Pollnnt. WASHINGTON, April 4.—Col. Brec'nin- rid-je's polic-y is to ti^'ht every inference slip-nesting' :i promise of marriaffc by him to Miss Poilarrl. At the morning session of court Mr. Wilson, the plaintiff's attorney who is conducting tho cross-eNainination, tried to (jet tin: witness to arlmit that there had been on his part expressions of all'ec- tion at least toward the plaintiff. This the witness steadily denied, but ho admitted that there had been demonstrations of affection. He had "a warm and earnest desire for her good only," he explained. "I took her in my arms and Uibsed her, but I never expressed love for her. I repeatedly declared that 1 could uerer marry her after her relations with Rhodes were known to me." "Do you think," Mr. Wilson asked, "that a man is under obligations to prevent the destruction o£ a young woman?" "Most assuredly I. do, and if he does not he should be punished. I have had my puuishment and am trying to take it without complaint." "There was never from you any proposal of -marriaK-e?" "><evet under any circumstances," most emphatically. "Then it was understood that you were to carry out tho semblance of a marriage contract which you both understood was never to be fulfilled?" "There was the semblance of a contract to be carried out before only one living- person, and that person Mrs. Gov. IJUickburn." After more fencing- the colonel stated that tho contract before Mrs. Blackburn had been made to enable Miss Pollard to die out of. hia life and separate from Mrs. Blackburn. "And with a view to enabling her to die out of your life and Mrs, Blackburn's you took her to Mrs. Blackburn and said you would place her under Mrs, Blackburn's care?" "I did not. My recollection and the recollection of Mrs. Blackburn upon that point differ us to the meaning- of my words." In further cross-examination Mr. Wilson brought out the fact that in filling out tho certificate of marriage of Mrs. Wing to Col. Ureckin- ridge, it was made to appear that that marriage was the colonel's second, whereas it was really his third; that he had asked Dr. Paxton not to make that marriag-o public, and that after his marria<re with Mrs. Wing he stopped with her at the Hotel Logereau in >*ew York, registering as William.!. Campbell and wife. Mr. Wilson unexpectedly finished his croes-examination in the early afternoon and Mr. Bntterworth took the witness in hand. After repeating some of his former testimony till the judge bade him stop, the defendant was excused by his counsel. His tale was told and it took him four days to tell it. His counsel had not expected so early a termination and were not prepared with any other witness. Judge Bradley ill adjourning- court administered a stinging rebuke to the spectators. "You make me think." he said, "of a lot of buzzards in a tree awaiting for a sick horse to die." S»T FarmliiK Don't Pay. TOPKKA, Kan., April 4.— Commissioner of Labor James F.

It cannot be definitely said which is responsible for the unfortunate affair, as the partisans of oacli loudly clunked the other with bein? the £nll cause of all the trouble.

The strong and ag-- gresivc support that each hide gave to its candidate (hiring' one of the hottest campaigns ever known in this citv engendered a strong sontimont ol bigotry. It was, therefore, in no amiable niuod that tile workers of the respective factions came together at the clilVei-ent polling places throughout the city, and that these workers carae expecting trouble to occur before the day was over was apparent from the number of deadly weapons that were drawn when the first pistol shot was fired.

This riot took place on the Southwest boulevard in the Fifth ward, close to police station No. 3, and those who took part in it had been heated to the fighting temper by reports that had been hourly arriving at this station of brawls at other polling places. Only one hour before it was linown that John Gooley, a stonemason, was shot in the back and forehead by William Henry Walker at a voting place at the corner of Fifth and Campbell streets and that the row was directly due to a fiery debate between the men regarding the principles of the American Protective association to which Gooley was violently opposed. Beginning of the Battle. It is claimed that Michael Callahan fired the first shot He was a member of a gang of men working under the lead o£ James Prior, a politician antagonistic to the A. P. A., and in support of Frank Johnson, the labor and independent democratic candidate for mayor. Callahan was killed. Then the battle began. The deputy constables at the polling booth and the workers of all the political factions crowded together in a solid mass about 100 strong, and every one of them seemed to be armed. For a minute or two the discharge of weapons sounded like a discharge of musketry by a regiment. Hundreds of citizens gathered at every point of vantage to 'witness the battle, which, however, was of short duration. In less than five minutes from, the time the first shot was fired the police from station No. 3 appeared upon the scene and quieted the disturbance. With their approach the fighting political workers ceased hostilities and made a quick effort to hide their weapons. While the riot was in progress it is said that members of the American Protective association telephoned to Armourdale and Argentine, strongholds of that order, for 1,000 men, and that the assurance was given that the men would shortly be on the way. Members of the A. P. A. in this city and Armourdale deny the truth of this story. Who Fired tli« Flrnt Sliot t Pryor's men are claiming that Callahan was an innocent victim. They assert that it was Jerry N. Pate, an A. P. A. man, who first shot, and that was the shot that killed Callahan. Pate was serving as a constable, having been appointed especially by a. Westport official to serve a warrant for the arrest of Jim Pryor, John Pryor, his son, aud Bert Pryor for an alleged felonious assault upon a citizen earlier in the day. He and Callahan met, had words, and either one or the other fired the shot that brought on the conflict.
