Cleveland, Dec. 29. Judge Newton
Pettis, of Meadvllle, Pa., who wheeled
Pennsylvania Into line in tbe Chicago con
vention, and caused tbe nomination of
Abraham Lincoln, Is In Cleveland feeling
the pulse of leading Ohio politicians as to
the chance among Gut-field's friends for tbe
nomination of Robt. T. Lincoln in 1884.
He ssys Arthur bas no chance, Grant is
utterly out of the question, Blaine bas ac
knowledged to his friends that be cannot be
a nominee on the ground tbat he cannot
carry New York. Pettis, who Is a Blaine
innn. declares tbat Blaine is willing to go
into the cabinet of the next President In
order that be can be tbe nominee of bis
purly in tbe succeeding canvass. The
scheme of Arthur in getting Gresjam into
the cabinet, killed oft Ben. Harrison, in bis
opinion. When Arthur found tbat be
could not be bis own successor, he would
throw bis aid to Lincoln, on the ground
that Lincoln's election would be an en
dorsement of Arthur's administration.

The Emma Bond Outrage Trial Rapidly
Neanng the End.
Hillrboko, 111., Dec. 29. Tbe later
part of yesterday was spent principally,
first in arguments pro and oon on Judge
Thornton's motion for a continuance, and
second in a-gumeuts upon the ad in Usabil
ity of various point of evidence sought to
be In'roduced in rebuttal. The mo.lou far
a continuance was made on tbe ground
tbat au Important witness, Nellie Wood
ruff, was unable, owing to sickness, to ap
pear in court, and that as the witness
would testify that Miss Bond told ' her she
bad nothing against the defendants but
supposition, and that the assault was made
so suddenly she could not tell who tbe
parties were or what tbey looked like, her
testimony was important and vital. Judge
OVERRULED the motion
on the ground that tbe testimony eould on
ly be u-e. f,M i tie purpose of impeaching
the testimony ui the prosecuting witness,
Miss Bund. The defense bas proved a
alibi for Montgomery, but whether tbat
alibi will overcome the strength of Miss
Bond's identification of Montgomciy, is an
question which worries the defense. If
they impeach Miss Bond's testimony no
Jury could convict tbe defendants.
Tbey failed iu tbis, and now are
fighting at every vulnerable point of the
evidence submitted in rebuttal. Tbe nlgbt
sr salon last evening, was spent In argument
on tbe question of tbe stenographer at tbe
preliminary trial, for f ie purpose of Im
peaching the testimony of Mrs. John Mont
gomery, lbit is, Male's Attorney Drennan
made the stenographer a witness In rebut
tal, and asked to read two or three ques
tions and answers given to Mrs. Montgom
ery at the preliminary trial, the ob
ject be I nit to contradict her test
imony given at tbis trial. Speeob af
ter speech was made for and against tbe
reliability of the stenographer's uotet,
The Court decided this morning tbat the
notes could be introduced by the prosecu
tion, but all of the testimony, and not a
pai't zivcfii by Mrs. Montgomery, must be
considered. The arguments are still pro
ceeding on the offshoots of this question.
The testimony of a number of witnesses at
the preliminary trial was admitted on the
part of tbe prosecution, tbe object being,
of course, to contradict tbe testi
mony given by the same witness at
this tila'. A Tier this kind of testimony bad
been submitted James Wickens was put on
the stand to impugn Clcmenti's veracity,
lie said thai of nil the people be knew he
would be slower to believe anything
Clcmeuti said than any one else, unless It
was corroborated by substantial people
( ross-ex.iiniiied closely he could only nam
three men who bad spoken against Clem
Conn tnen took recess.
Miller, Prosecuting Attorney of Mont
gomery county, will make the opening ar
gument, and John J. MeHrlde will follow
for the defense. If these speakers are n t
too prolix, time will be bad to-nlgbt
for the next speech, which will be delivered
by Judge Taylor of tbe prosecution.
Court met aguin at half-past one. Sadler
Armstrong aud another witness were put
on the stand, each of whom testified that
Clemanti wns untruthful. The Impression
is that all the evidence In rebuttal will be
handed in by 4 o'clock, when the argu
ment will begin. Court will then adjourn
to Monday morning, and all day
Monday will he spent in argument. Judge
McCaskell of the defense, wilt be the first
speaker. Judge Yandever of the prosecu
tion, will follow. Tbe heavy weight of 'he
defense, Judge Tnnrnmn, will tbeu speak,
and Judge Edwards and 'John Drennan of
tbe prosecution, will close. If the case is
not concluded by Monday nlgbt court wilt
be beid New Year's day, when tbe cue is
all probability will be ended.

prosecution, is tick tblt morning tnd not ,
tbla to tppetr In court. If be I not able
to assist In th argument of the case It will
be a severe blow to tbe proseoutlon.
Tbe first question that occupied the at
tention of tbe court this morning was aa to
whether the translation of the short-band
notes of testimony taken at tbe preliminary
examination would be admitted at evi
dence here for purposes of impeachment.
Mr. Montgomery, the eourt stenographer,
was put on tbe elaud and testified tbat bit
business was that of a stenographer, and
tbat be bad been engaged in it tour or five
years; that be took the evidence at tbe
preliminary examination correctly and
made true copies of It for the defense tnd
Judge Phillips decided tbat tbis evidence
might be admitted.
