UNIMPORTANT, Kossell Describes His First Meeting Witli the Ptaintlif and tlie Subsequent »!??-? .... ' '" Visits to Her—How Thoy De-v v ceiveti Poor Rhodes, I#' W WASHINGTON1, March 29.--No sooner had * the circuit court met today for the Pol- ' •lard-;Br«ckinridge cage than Judge Wilson iJof the plaintiff's: counsel requested that >the disputed letter which has been in the ' hands of the Breckinridge forces be placed ;j:in the custody of the clerk of the court He also requested that "Colonel" E.

Mr. Hay recalled the -case, and Mr. Butterworth recollected alsc -<tbat he had been a member of the committee. '-'Yes, yon wrote the report," remarked ; . Mr^ "Wilson. , ; but it was a good report," Mr. Butterworth replied, "andI signed it." "So it was a good report/'"Mr. Wilson j repeated, and the object of bis reference " to the case was shown when he proceeded to read extracts from Mr. Hay's testimony at that investigation to sho^thfrt he had said at different times.that he - placed greatest weight upon general characteristics arid upon special characteristics! Cool as the traditional" cucumber, Expert Hay explained how he reconciled his statements. ' . Asked if he had not testified that Find-ley did not write the Springer letter when it had [been proved that he did, Mr. Hay replied that his belief remained unchanged that Findley was not the writer. . "Did not yon testify in this court re-, cently that a will was a forgery when it was proved undoubtedly genuine?" Mr. Wilson inquired. Mr. Hay denied that this was the fact, and Mr. Butterworth insisted that the. case referred to should be named. Mistakes of Experts. Mr. Hay, who iB an expert penman himself, asserted that lie could imitate, any in dividual letters in the disputed document, but would not be able to combine them into a plausible imitation of the handwriting. He did not remember a case involving the genuineness of some naval vouchers in which the experts had picked out the original vouchers as forgeries. He had never known a case in which experts had differed so widely as over the Findley letter and incidentally remarked that congress had never paid him for the 25 days of hard work upon the ease. Mr. Butter worth added that the government nevei paid ianything it could avoid paying, except its bonds. After giving an explanation of the methods of tracing, the expert '; averred that none of them could have been employed in making the letter before him. lawyers Wilson and Butterworth indulged in a dispute over the reading of the ; , report of the congressional committee on ' - the Findley letter. Mr. Butterworth explained that the Republicans and Demo-serais of the committee had taken partisan positions regarding the authorship of. the Findley. letter, and their conclusions were not read. When Mr. Hay was finally dismissed, the wiiole field of expert evidence had been thrashed over to weariness. He was followed by Colonel Breckinridge's stenographer, and clerk, a young, blond mustached man named Worthing-ten, w^o until recently bad been employed in the office of Breckinridge & Shelby in Lexington. Being requested to tell what he knew of the questioned letter, he explained that last September Mr. Shelby had received a request from Colonel Breckinridge, then in Washington, tc make a search for letters from MISB Pollard to him. The search had. extended over three or four days, and finally this letter was found on top of an old unused desk where a lot of correspondence, pari of it belonging to the firm, part Colonel Breckinridge's private correspondence,was stored away in pasteboard files; alphabet- • :ioally arranged. This was the only lettei from Miss Pollard found. ^ ' On cross examination the clerk said that the ofiicej °f Breckinridge & Shelby had : been moved in September, 1890. . 1 - "So that," Mr. Wilson said, "of all the:" .letters you found in that office, this is the only one in Miss Pollard's handwriting?" The clerk assented, and Mr. Wilson askedif that package had seemed to consist of private correspondence, to which ;the witness replied (that they had seemed to be mostly business letters. Between the leaves of that pasteboard file, he explained, had been only letters from persons whose names began with P. His recollection WM that "1884" was stamped upon the package. K'r. Bowell C'aJled. ; ' There wt>s p' stir in court when Mr. . Shelby said,. ''New, Mr. Rossell," and a tall, slender, prmburned man whose dress betokened ti.at le was from the country . '' rf -l kissed the Bible.' Ran-on © Oi'iUlsB jronarcrsTOvers. ne announced that he was a schoolteacher in Nicholas county, Ky.; had recently been elected superintendent of the county schools; had been deputy county clerk for six years and was .master of the local Masonic lodge. From March, 1881, to March, 1884, he waB employed with a dry goods firm in Cincinnati, going from there to Chicago, where he remained until August, 1884, returning to Cincinnati and remaining there until January, 1885. <fPo you know the plaintiff, Madeline Pollard?" This was the first important question asked by Mr. Shelby, wiio conducted th» examination, fand the reply was, "Yes." "State when you became acquainted with her and under what circumstances?" Mr. Rossell was evidently embarrassed, He spoke slowly, and his command ol grammar was not all that might be ex; pected of a schoolteacher. "It was either in October or November, 1883," he said. "There was a lady came into the store looking for me." A Dramatic Episode, Just at this juncture occurred one of the most dramatic episodes of the trial, for as Rossell said these words the door between the jury and the witness swung open, and for the first time this week the black robed plaintiff, followed by her faithful attendant, Sister Ellis of the austere features, entered. Miss Pollard wore a new bonnet more becoming than the little affair which has covered her head heretofore. She glanced toward Rossell, and Rossell tow;ard her. It was .their, first meeting since 1885. The young woman's face flushed slightly; the man dropped his head and toyed nervous ly with the Bible on the stand. Miss Pollard took a seat beside Mr. Wilson nearly in front of the witness. There was silence deep and embarrassing, finally broken by Mr. Shelby as he said, "Proceed, Mr Rossell." Mr. Rossell proceeded, somewhat palei than before and more embarrassed;. "1 was at that time on- the fifth floor. A nies sehger boy came and announced that a ladj wanted to see me. I went out to see who she was. It was Madeline Pollard. SLU introduced herself > to me; said she had heard of me often and wanted to see me She said she desired to go to Wesleyan college and asked me if I would go with her to which I consented^and I did." . "Did she tell you how she happened t«. know you?" "She had heard iter cousin, Nellie Oliver,, speak of me often,. I knew Nellie Oliver. We were received fn the office of the col leg# by Dr. Brown. I was. not acquaint-ed with him, but I introduced myself and Miss Pollard. She stated her intention ol : entering school there; said she had a guardian, Mr. Rhodes, who would lie glong tht next day to complete the arrangements. She stated to Dr. Brown that I was a personal friend of hers and asked him tc grant me the privilege of calling there whenever I wanted to. From that time on I called "very regularly for the purpose of seeing her, sometimes twice a week, sometimes three tjmes." "Did you see her alone or with othei persons?" "Most frequently alone. Sometimes other young ladies came in." * "Did your visits lead to friendship?" "At first I had an admiration for the young lady. My admiration led to love and love to an engagement. We became engaged about the Christmas holidays." In answer to questions Rossell said. "Miss Pollard stated first that Mr. Rhodes was her guardian; afterward that she was desirous of getting an education, and having no one to help her, Mr. Rhodes having proposed matrimony, she became engaged to him on condition that he would pay for her schooling. She said from the start that she did not intend to carry out the contract. She was ambitious to secure an education. I saw her at the school, sometimes in the reception room adjoining the parlor,[sometimes inj the parlor, gen eraily alone from 8 to 10 in the evening." "What washer manner after she became engaged to you?" ."It was very affectionate. She frequent ly kissed me and caressed me. is thai what you are after?" Mr. Shelby assented and inquired where she sat generally. "She would sit beside me at first, generally in a chair. As our friendship in creased she became very nice. She has sat in my lap time and time again.'' "Were there any demonstrations of affection?" "Oh, yes. There naturally would lie. 1 would put my arms around her and kiss her." "During that time did you ever meei Mr- Rhodes*" "I met him on one occasion only. Miss Pollard stated that Mr. Rhodes had heard of my calling, and she denied it; said if he was ever'there I must pretend not to know her. That night a friend of hers met me at the door. There were fhree or four other couples in the parlor. I wa3 introduce^ to him and to her as if I had never met her." "Did you meet as friends?" "We met as strangers, according to previous arrangement/' "Did anything occur to spoil your arrangement?" She Wanted to Go With Him. ' "We were' sitting opposite, and once she hallooed across the room, "Oh, Rankinl' Mr. Rhodes said he thought she was just introduced to me, and she made him be-lieve she was hallooing to a young lady." "Did you tell her you were going t(i leave Cincinnati?" "Oh, yes. The evening before I left 1 met her in the library. She expressed hei regrets, did not want me to go and de. sired to go with me. I told her if shq really desired to go to get ready. She went up stairs and came down with her hat and coat on, so I was in a box. I told her that nnder the circumstances tve had better not go; that we had better wait until June." "Did you think she was in earnest?" "I did not until she went up stairs." "Did she have her trunk packed?" "She said so." "Did she ever say anything about hei age?" . "She represented herself as three years my junior. I was born in 1860." - Rossell further said that he'had presented two rings to MISB Pollard. He had taken her to sit for & tintype juist before leaving Cincinnati. One of the pictures three other.tfntypes wKch had been sent to him by Miss Pollard in 1854, two of them taken with friends. Mr. Wilson was sustained in an objection to the reasons why Rossell had let the engagement drop. In another form the latter question was permitted, and the wit- • ness said that she had allowed him to kis9 and hug ner in a way he did not like in a woman he loved. Once he had written her about the rings he gave her. He had destroyed the reply. After the noon recess Mr. Shelby inquired whether in 188<1: Miss Pollard was a mature person physically and mentally. Objection was made and the question excluded. It was asked also whether her conduct was that of a mature person, and this was also excluded. He Blew Out the Gas. MIDDLETOWN, N. Y., March 29.—William Crane, aged 27, came to this city from Branchville, N. J., last night with his pockets full of money. He went to the Bell House and before retiring at midnight blew out the gas.

In spue of this, Ihere wili be no prize fight in South tit. Paul or atiy other part of Minnesota.'

CHICAGO, March 29.—"Parson" Davies has issued a long reply to the ''official statement" issued from Cincinnati by .Tames J. Corbett. The letter denies that Jackson, as claimed by Corbett, should feel flattered by the notice taken of him by Corbett and declares that all the colored man wishes is to have the fight come off in this country, if possible,: but in any place where a fail show will be given him.
