A Resume of the Colin Campbell
Divorce Suit in
Dependent's Attorney Malies an
Elaborate Statement of
Mary Watson, the-Alleged Partioeps
Oriminis to the Adultery Count
of the Hill of Complaint.
Upon tho Witness Stand and Contra
dicts the Allegation of Crimi
nal Intimacy Between
She and Defendant Damaging State
inents Touching Lady Colin'a Es
capades With her Paramours,
Marlborough and Shaw.
THE CAMPUELL DIVOKCK.
Me Lady's Lalsons Laid Bare by De
London, Isov. 27. In the Campbell
divorce case today Mr. Finlay for the de
fense coatiuuel the presentation of Lord
Colin Campbell's case. If Lady Camp
bell ha! believed, the lawyer argued, that
her husband h:id communicated hi-; malady
to her she would have mentioned the fact
to him, but this the had never done.
The judge then interrupted and said that
argument i elated entirely to cruelty al
leged in the petition as one of the grounds
for divorce, and as .said cruelty had been
proven in a former trial in which plaintiff,
had obtained a decree of reparation on that
ground alone, he must now refuse to allow
the allegation to bo contested; he should
direct the jury to find that the' defendant
had given to plaintiff Fome kind of dibeacc.
Finlay resumiug iaid all of plaintiff's
allegations in her petition were false, h.d
been made to intimidate and since had
lieen w ithdrawn except one charge the tiuth
or falsity of which could be known
only to Lady Campbell herself. The de
fense, however, had evidence that would
shed a Hood of light upon Lord Colin's
proceedings in Paris. In legard to that
charge even, allowance muf-t be made,
counael continued, for Lord Colin' action
in asking the Paris police to arrest his wife
and lock her up in tho prostitutes' prison,
localise at that time defendant believed his
wife was then lhing in adultery with the
Duke of Marlborough. Four person,
Finlay went on, were accused of having
been crimiually intimate with Lady Colin.
Here Mr. Russell, plaintiff's counsel, in
terrupted fcaying: Five.
Not necessary five, retorted Finlay.
Oh, Mr. Finlay, exclaimed Itiiist-U.
Defendant's counsel Iher. continued:
Lady Campbell had written to the D.ike of
Marlborough as "Dear George." He had
taken her home at 13 in the morning, gone
up stairs with her and remained with her
twenty minutes. On one occasion when he
came to tea the servant that took the tea up
to Lady Campbell, found the di awing room
door locked, and u little later found it un
locked; saw that Iridy Campbell's hair was
dmi ranged, her faco flushed and the inr
niture out of place. On those occasions,
counsel continued, plaintiff had doubt
less - '
Lady Campbell's maid would be called
and he would prove that on more than one
occasion while plaintiff was living alone,
her couch at Leigh court was occupied by
more than one pur?on. Servant and tvo
indcendcut witne.-sM would testify that
plaintiff had committed acts of inlldelity
in Purflet hotel. Dr. Bird, and Lady Camp
bell, at one time were constantly together
and whenever he called plaintiff u'-ed to
give orders that she was not to be diVtmbcd
during his presoncc. Once a cabman .said
Dr. Bird and Lady Cambell, while return
ing from achaiitable concert in Last End
w ere caressing each other in cab.
On this occasion they were driven to Dr.
Bird's house. Eolli went in; the cabman
remained outside. Lady Campbell stayed
so long that he drove away.
It would aho be shown that when Dr.
Bird visited Lady Campbell professionally
he would remain hours at her bed-side in a
darkened 1 ocm. Inferring to Chief Shaw,
of the London fire brigade, Finlay said
Lady Campbell met Ihcehief in an unfur
iii-died drawing loom in Cadogan place in
lf31 and remained with him an hour, and
during 1SS2 she was w ith him alone in the
dininirroom under conditions which would
convince the jury that plaintiff and Chief
Shaw were wrong doing.
Evidences connecting Lady Colin Ciinp
lx.ll with General Butler va.- largely re
ferred to and the length of time iw re
mained when he called ujon plaintiff.
Two shameles3 women had concocted the
story of Lord Colin's criminal intimacy
with his wife's maid, Mary "Watson. The
defence would produce two surgeons who
would swear that Mary "Watson was vir
ginio cntact; that theiefore it was impossi
ble that defendant could have been guilty
of adultry with her.
At this" point Finlay denounced with
great excitement ami passion what he
called infamous fraud and perjury and
shameless couduct of Lady Mile and Lady
Campbell (sensation). He accused Lady
Miles of prostituting her prayer book by
inserting therein dates of Lord Campbell's
wrong doings for the purpose of accumu
latin g data upon which to found the pw
Two physicians were called, both testi
fied that they had examined Mary Waton
and found her pure. Neither, however,
on cros-s examination, could swear an at
tempt to assault the girl had not been made.
Mary "Watson herilf was then sworn.
She is a tall, slim girl. She testified that
she was a house maid for Ird Campbell
from 1SS1 to 1SS8, she denied all of Lady
Miles' testimony concerning the alleged in
limacy between witness and Lord Colin.
Lady "Colin's maid ued to post kttere for
her "mistrivw, and witne.- often s&iv the
names of the Duke of MrIbc.rough and
Chief Shaw on the envelopes.
When the Duko of Malborough ued to
ring the servant's bell w iinfcvi one-; showed
the Duke into the dining room when he
called because her raisins was with Lord
Coliu in his bed room Witness went up
find called Lady Coiin out saving the cok
wanted to s' ber "When Iady Conn
came out witness told her it wa the duke
and not the cook, and Lady Colin said.
Thank you. Mary. (Laughter.) I.ady
Coiin, witness continued, used to receive
Capt. Shaw alone. Dr. Bird ea on ocoa
sion tok lea with Lady Cliu be
fore going with her m a con
cert. When the carriage arrive! wiiae
wvnt to announce it to Lady Colin ami
found that she and Dr. Bird "had cone to
Lady Conn's ledroom. Lady Colin came
to the door, saying as she did so. "Keep
your hand on that dose, doctor."
On being cross-exammtd witness said
she saw no dose when Dr. Bird received
the injunction to keep his hand on the
dose. "When asked by Solicitor Lewis if
ahe had seen any impropriety on the part
of Lady Colin, witness replied that she
never "bad. Witness admitted having
written letters to Lord Colin, but asserted
that she had never signed them "your af
fectionate Mary," but simply "Mary."
Court then adjourned.

not oulr base in themselves, but a great

THE OXFOIlt) TOWNSniI HOND CASE.
A decision was rendered by the U. S.
Supreme court today in the bund case of
Moes R. Craw again! the township of
Oxford, Sumner county, Kansas. Thi-j
was a suit to recover the amount due on
ccrtaiu bonds aud coupons issued by the
township of Oxford to aid the construction
of a bridge across Arkansas river. The
.-anic bonds have already been once
before this court in the case
of McClure azainst the township of Ox
ford (91 vs 429) The court then held that
the bonds if issued under a pecial act of
the legislature of Kausas approved March
1, 1S72, were invalid. In the present suit
an attempt is mude to sustain the validity
of the bonds bv nllosrimr that they were is
sued under authority of a geucrnl act of I
the legislature of Kansas, passed ilarcb'
2nd. Id72. The i ourt hold that the ioius
on their face excluded the possibility of
their having been issued under tic latter
act. The public records show (hat the pro
feedings were not taken under that act
and the editor had no right to derftlu as a
matter of law that thc!-e bonds which he
was authorized to register aud certify,
when n a matter of law they were nut.
