Brought Against Him
Wtlh the long-awaltod appearancc upon
the stand to-day of tho dofendant hlm?
self, there wlll ln al] prtabablllty be prac
tlcally brought to an end tho second
great chapter In the Campbell Investlga?
tlon?a chapter which in tho closlng
scencs, as evidenced yesterday, ls scnsa
tlonal and remarkablo nnd even ualque,
to a high degrec.
Early in the day Judge Campb?ll will
take nls seat in the wltness chalr, and
there ls every prospect that during w?v
eral hours the narratlvo he wlll unfold
wlll clalm absolutely tho attentlon of
all. Thereupon wlll be> brought to a
Cnlsh the cafe for the defense. One
more wltness ls still to come lf ho can
be forced here. but there wlll hardly bo
any others. Judge Campbell will be the
central flgure at tho close. and there can
be no doubt that the throng who will
stand around him and gather up his
words will be great. Already lost nlght
people wero preparlng to ilock to the
Capitol to-day. They expeet that they
will be repuld. The Investlgatlon up to
thls time has been such as to warrarit
tho bellef that lt will close this chapter
in a blaze of glory.
Durlng the course of the session yester?
day Major Conrad, counsel for the de
fense, made statement to tho effect
that he was through, with the, exeeption
of Judge Campbell nnd the Vour wlt?

one?Woodruff?the Juryman over whom
there has been so much talk, an im

ruff wlll get here to-day or will come
at all cannot be sald. Up to last nlght
tho defenso had heurd 110 lato news from
lt was Imposslblc for Judge Campbell
hlmself to take the stand yesterday, be?
cause he was not ready. Ho wanted to
go over the whole testimony and got tho
caso firmly in hls head. To-day ho wlll
bo thus prepared. and when he takes tlie
stand ho wlll be enabled to proceea clear
ly without delay. He will prbduce ai]
tlio letters and papers asked for by tho
commlttee and the counsel for the prose?
eutlon. "They will all be lncluded in hls
narratfcre." sald Major Conrad in hls an
Should AA'oodruff come In latff he wlll
bo placcd on tlio stand. But ho wlll
Iu all llkellhood be tho last. The de?
fenso Is through and to-day tho curtaln
drops on a second aot.
THE REBUTTAL AND ARGtrMENT.
Inqulrios yesterday ellcited tho defln
lto Information that the argument is not
yet to come. Whon tho defenso ends
the proseeutlon, after a recoss probably,
wlll go ln strohgly for rebuttal and will
have tus many wltnesses as the commlt?
tee wlll allow. Mr, Strode said as much
last nlght. Judge Campbell also wlll
Introduco wltnesses by way of rebuttnl.
He wlll bo gul.lcd by tho extont to whlch

Tho llfo of Dr. Cury is an epttomo of
publlc history during. many past years.

opernted to haston that gradual broak
down ln health which had durlng tlio
past moiiths been more and more notlce

tho coronation of a European -klhg.
Beglnnlng ln tho early years ot ths
last century, tho llfo of Dr. Curry is
Intertwincd wlth, Amerlcan history to the '
