directories hie name appears as secretary of
tbe Kew York and Harlem railroad. Cor
nelius Vanderbilt was president, and Cor
nliut Vanderbilt, Jr., treasurer. It was
known to a few that Kiven had a family
from which be had been separated during
the year of his reaidenoe with the Clark
family. O i Gen. Clark 'a auggestlon, Cnr-nellu-
Vanderbilt took charge of tbe affairs

sioner Woodward was see by a reporter
Just before tbe trial this afternooa on the
subject of tbe pledge be Is reported to have
given not to vote against Campbell.
"I bare never pledged myself to either
side," be said. "I am aider no obliga
tion to vote for or against. Mr. Carutb
and Dr. Ltitz know and will tell yeu that I
have made tbem ne promises. The gentle
mu who stated that I pledged myself the
other way are mistaken. One thing I will
sav. This is a matter la which there
should be no baste. I shall waat time for
consideration. I want to hear the evldem-n,
ana shall treat it as if I bad heard nothing
about the cake before. I think it will take
some, time to decide tbe matter."
Mr. Woodward wished to be understood
as not being at all prejudiced against Camp
bell. He aaid, however, that some things
tbat Campbell old were injudicious. For
"His motion to draw a plstel on rae at
the laat Board meeting was a bet-headed
performance. I bad put the questions to
him tbat would ordinarily bo pat to a wit
ness in such a case. I asked btra If he had
not been served witb a summons. There
was an objection of some sort or other from
an attorney and some wrangling. Camp
bell started up with: 'If there la going to
be anything of tlil sort I wilt have a band
tn It,' and he reached around to bis pistol
pocket wlih a movement as if to draw a
weapon. Other ".-itleraeo at the table saw
the movent an. sp ,e to me about It. "

JOHN C. MONTGOMERY.
He Goet on the Witness Stand in Hit Own
The Impression Created by Hli Manner
and Testimony not Favorable to
Hillsboro, III., Deo. 27. The trial of
the Bond vase progresses slowly. The lu
terestin the case, wbiob had subsided
somewhat during the holidays, has revived
to Its usual height. The court room crowd
this morning was quite large, owing to the
fact that tt waa understood that John C
Montgomery would be tbe first witness en
MONTGOMERY ON THE STAND.
Montgomery does not make as good an
Impression on tbe Jui v, apparently, a the
other defendaota. His countenance is not
so frank and open an it might be, and bis
maimer of testifying It rather against him.
Ud is extremely uneasy and nervous. Hie
evidence corresponds exactly with tbe story
told by Pettua aud dementi. He attempts
to account for bis actions on the after
noon of the outrage, aud his abseace from
tbe scene of tbo occurrence. The
rbanm s are tb' Tits story as to taking
his w'ifo and ciiftdren bouie-about 8 o'oiock
ou tbat evening can be lubntantlated by
a good disintereHed witness, but still this
would not do away with tbe theory of his
guilt, as the defense will hold tbat shortly
after Miss Bond was taken up lu the loft
and after she was abused Montgomery left
and went over to Mrs. lVtms's and took
bis wife borne. This theory will correspond
to tbe statement by Miss Bond at first tbat
when she recoyered consciousness sbe only
saw tuomeu in the loit. Hli testimony
is a sample, of the evidence of tbe other
defendants heretofore published.
JOSEPH YONK ICRS' TESTIMONY.
Joseph Yonkers was tbe next witness
tailed. He lives about one-eighth of a mile
from the Monti-ornery school-bruse, aud is
a brother-in-law nf John Montgomery.
John came to his bouse about 8:30 on tbe
afternoon of the outrage, aud remained al
the bouse -shout twenty minutes, when be
and John went down to look at a
new binder. Remained around it about
half an hour wben they went to look at
some corn; staid in the corn about half an
hour aud then went dowu to look at a cradle
snd John tried bis hand at cutting wheat.
Tbey remained around the wheat fild a
couple of hours after which tbey went up
to Yonkers' house, where tbey arrived
about half past six o'clock. Montgomery
left tbe house about this time, and the wit
nets saw nothing more of bim. The wit
ness swears Mon gotnery was not out of his
sight rrom 3:30 until 6:30. His testimony
was shaken some by briuging'out statement i
he bad made at the preliminary examina
tion. K1IAW1NO TO A CLOSE.
Judge Phillips remarked at the noon re
cess tbat all tbe evidence in tbe oase would
be In by to-morrow noon, provided tbe at
torneys would work two hours to-night,
and that tbe case would Just about go to the
Jury this week. This is somewhat of s
surprise to nearly everyone.
