It was tint " said Mr. lloaall. In a (ape that Implied that the question was an InsulC ' Waa It allowed to drop 7" "Yes, air." "What were tha reasons on your part for allowing the matter to drop'" -j. Objection waa made to this hr Judge Wilson. which waa sustained, and Momr Hheibr asked the question In another way. J will ask you whether or not the dropping of tho engagement was due to aay conduct on tha part of Miss I ollard?" " As she would allow ma to hug end kiss her. I lost confidence In her aa not being fit to bo my wife, and therefore I ceased to love her." "After going tn Chicago, when did you next see Miss Pollard r "It waa In Lexington, at a Mrs. Ketcham'a. and I asked her for my rings, and she said they were at her mother's and she would gt them and send them to me. A month or so later I wrote to her. All her letters to me I destroyed Christmas one year ago. In reply to that let ter aha said that bar mothei's property had been destroyed by fire, and that the rlnga bad been destroyed along with It." During tins part of Mr. lloseU'a testimony the tintypes of Mies Pollard and himself, which he Identified, were passed about among the lawyers and newspaper men. Mlsa Pol lard resembles a typical country girl, with an abundance of frlr.zes. lloaall. who la repre acnted In one picture standing up behind Miss Pollard'a chair In tha conventional tlntrpe war. looks Ilka a callow, awkward bor. Mr. llossiill aatd. In anawer to another ques tion hr Major Shelby, that when he saw Mlsa Pollard at Mrs. Ketcham'a there was no one else present, and he could nut aee how any. body could bare bean concealed there, ltecess came in here. When Mr. llnaell resumed the stand at tha afternoon session Mlsa Pollard was again In her seat. Hhe paid close attention to what tha witness said, although she seldom lonked at him, and made frequent notes whloh ahe handed to Mr. Carlisle. " Now. Mr. ilosell." said Major Hhalbr. "did Miss l'ollard have the appearance of a matured or an Immatured woman, physically and man tally, when you llrst kneiv her?" "I object.'' aald Judge Wilson, and tba ob jection was sustained. " Were her actions mature at thla time?" asked Mr. Shelby. " 1 object again," said Judge Wilson, and thla question was also ruled out. "Well, did she in lHKi have tha appearance of a girl or a woman '!" aakad Major Hheibr la desperation. "of a woman," was the answer. "In Miss Pollard's testlmonr." said Major Hheibr. "the statement was made that roii were a candidate for an office In the Internal revenue service. What were the facta In that matter?" " Iat April I made application for tha posi tion of ganger and sent It oa with mr endorse mants. When 1 ran for superintendent for county schools, tho application waa virtually withdrawn and later I withdrew It." "Waa thla bafora you cava your deposi tion 7" " Y'es. sir." " Did you know Col. Breckinridge than?" " No, air." " Do you live in his district 7" "No. air. I do not" "You may have tha witnoss. gentlemen." aald Major bhelby. It was expected that Judge Wilson would prube the witness to the very bottom of hla knowledge, and that his crosa-examlnatlon would cunsume the rest of tha afternoon, but to tha disappointment of everybody, except Col. llre.klnrldge and his counsel, tha astute old lawyer allowed him to go In a very short time. Judge Wilson drew out of the witness that he bud not withdrawn hie application for the oflloe of internal revenue gauger until the morning of the very day he made his depo sition, and that when giving his testimony in Lexington at that time he had the papers lu his pocket The idea of Judgo Wilson In calling attention to thla matter was evidently to find out whether the influence of the de fendant In seeurlng a place under the Oovern ment had not been promised the witness and that he had been Influenced by this in giving hi; testimony. Judge Wilson did not pursue thla line of Inquiry further, but asked the wit ness If he did not know of the high repute of Wealeran College, and that Miss Lucy Webb Haves and the wlfeof Representative springor of Illinois, and other well-known women had not been educated there. Tha witness ad mitted that tha college stood In the best re pute In Cincinnati, but he knew nothing about women who had been pupils there. Judge Wilson had him describe the rooms on the first floor of the college, and asked him if there were not folding doora between the rooms which were alwara open when he waa there. Iloaeil aald that such was tba fact. I alwaya saw Mlaa Pollard In the parlor or the reception room, which were practically one room, because tha doora were kept open," ba aald. "Don't you know." said Judge Wilson se verely, "that the rules or thla Institution for bade the reception of visitors, except on one evening In tho week, and not two or three times a week?" " No. I did not know It," aald Mr. Ilosell. "How long would Mlsa Pollard alt In your lap during these visits of yours i", 'AH tha time I waa there." " How long did rou stay?" "From half past 7 or H to 10 well, about an aval age of an hour and a halt or two h ours " You mean to ear that Miss Pollard would alt on your lap in a public room for an hour and a half to two hours, two or three times a week, and with young women all about tha building?" " y .. that is what I aaid. poaltlvaly." a answer to other uuestions. Ilosell aald illss Pollard had told him of ber mock mar riago with Alex Julian, and at the time that Mlas l'ollard wanted logo to ( blcago with him she bad gone up stairs to pack ber trunk. ''How long was ahe gone?" asked Judge Wllaou. 'About fifteen or twentr mlnutea." " Do rou mean to aay that aha packed her trunk or arranged herself for the journey In fifteen or twentr minutes y' " Y'es. sir. thst Is what I mean." "That's all." said Judge Wilson, and Mlsa Pollard and Ilosell both left the eourt room by separate doora The rest of the afternoon waa spent In read ing the depositions of Hiram Kaufman. Jama) A. Draot. and I.echter l.usbr of Leilngtun. Both Kaufman and llrsudt used plain lan guage In talking uf things not mentioned in polite societr calling a spade a spade, and detailing vulgar conversatlona and doings. Kaufman deposed that he waa ,10 rears old and a butcher. He had been a frequenter uf bawdr houses in Lexlugton when he went there twelve regis ago. and used to spend part of hie time in May aud June. 18Kt. in the house of Luna Mngleton.

At another time he bad seen her come out of this ruum with a man of the name of Hiiudlebauer Once Miss Pollard asked the witness to go Into the private room with per but be hi 1 such a brotherly feeling for Hodes that he did not go.

The Ke.t-a er Health Talake Wis Ksptwaa. flea Met xtieis,(. At the meeting of the Health Board yeetar dar a latter was read from the Rev. Dr. John II. Paxton relative to hla failure to record the marriage of Co!. Breckinridge and Mra. Wing within tba time named by law. Thla la what he had to aay: " In ezcuae for not reporting tha marriage of Col. W. C. P. Breekinridge and Mra. Louie I!. & Wing, I have to aay that I am ignorant of any law requiring me to report marrlagea to your Board of Health within a given or limited time, say, three months After cere mony. I waa told by an old New York clergyman several yeara ago that ha re ported marriages at his convenience within alx moalha of tha year In which performed, I plead my ignoranee of tha law. I did not know that I waa bound to report marriages within three month, or that your honorable Board of Health could fine me for failure to do so. In my Ignoranee of thla law I gave a promise to Col. Breckinridge and Mrs. Wing not to report the marriage for three month a Then I was taken 111. and the l'ollard scandal was noised abroad, and Col. Breckinridge and hit wife were publicly married In Kentucky, Ignoring the New York marriage, and they still begged me not to divulge, and I waa 111. and so I crave your grace." The Commissioners were not satisfied with Dr. Paxton'e explanation, and referred the matter back to Attorney Hlelnert for action. Mr. Htelnert said that he Intended tn com mence suit against Dr. Paxlon at once for vio lation of section hi I." of the Nan- York consoli dation act Ha will bring ault In tha Seventh District Civil Court to-dav and hold the sum mons and complaint until Dr. Paxton returns to the olty. The Board of Health has prepared a measure which Henntor Wolf will introduce In Hi Legislature at Albany, it amende section no.' of the Consolidation act and makes every omission of any person to make and keep the registry of marriages and births required by the preceding sections, and every omission to report a written copy nf them to tho Hoard of Health within ten days after anr birth or marriage, provided to be registered, a mis demeanor and punishable aa suoh. and In addition thereto the offender shall also be liable to nay a fine of l(x, to be re covered In the name of the Health Depart ment of the city of New York, before anr Jus tice or tribunal In aald city, having jurisdic tion of civil actions. Hut no person shall be liable for auch fine, or subject to arrest and Imprisonment for not making the report, If an excuse is presented to the Hoard nf Health for the amission which the Board shall deem suf ficient In which event the Board is empotverod to excuse the omission. Section li-Thle act shall take effect imme diately. The Commissioners hope that this will have the effect of causing mora prompt reports of death, births, and marrlagea. JTJtg.

" And that I Impaired to the extent demon strated here on thla crosa-examlnatlon 7" asked Mr. Choate. The witness did not snswer this question, and. after some more klndlr Inquiries regard ing his health. Mr. hmiteliegsn an even morn Intimate in iiiliy concerning the business ca reer of Mr Huge. He learned that the million aire wn born In Verona.

He wanted to know all about that ; the name of every mad he had built or helped to build, and when he had done this and with whom he had been associated in doing it. Ha freiiuentlr Interrupted his tor rent of t-ueatlone by explaining that ho did not wish to a-k the witness any Impertinent questions, but merely wanted to test hla memory. Tho financier would somstlmos say that to answer some Question he would have to refer to hi book, and when the lawyer would pretend great surprise that the wltnesa couhl not remember even the names of roads he had built, the witness said. ' Possibly we might differ as to what Is aiding a road Home I have aided oa a director, and aome only n a stockholder." "No. we won't differ: we will divide the question." Mr. choate said. " First name the roads you have aided In huildlnc as a director, and then the roads you have aided In building aa a stockholder." The witness either would not or could not. and after worrying him with n hundred questions on this line Mr. i hoate finally exclaimed. " Well, we will let that go." Next the cross-examiner brought the wlt nesa to a consideration of his railroad build ing experience after he left Troy and cametn New lork. He managed, under the license of testing the memory of the witness, to show tha jury the Intimate financial relations which had existed for twenty year between Mr. Huge and Mr. Oould. and finally asked the wltnesa how many road ba had asi8ted In building In connection with Mr. Gould as director or stockholder. After snme very lively sparring witness thought that ha had beon connected. In one way or an other, with about thirty railroads, ' Name them." exclaimed Mr. (hoate. The wltnes named three and stopped. " Them' twentr-seven more," aald Mr. Choate. looking at his list. "Please hurry. You do business much faster than thla In your office, (loon." Mr. Sago said something about a number of auxiliary roads that had been consolidated, and roada that had been merged, and unim portant roads whose directors met very eel ili.m. and again said aomethlng about refer ring to hie booka. " Your books have nothing to do with what I am irvmg to determine, which la a queatlon of your memorr." Mr. t hoate said. But the witness continued to spar, and at last Mr. (hoate eielalmed: Now la It not true that rou have millions and million, ni dollars In roada that you have cot named here I" All of the counsel for the defence were on their feet objecting to this queatlon. and Mr. Choate withdrew the question and added "Now. you can't remember, and won't you please aay so?" The witness would not say ao. and Mr. Choate exclaimed, "Wall, I give It up." and next asked: "ou aay you area hanker. What kind nf a hank do you run 7 Ia It a bank of deposit " i ne witness said ;t was not and neither was it a bank circulating notes, "sometimes 1 have money to loan, he said. "Oh. you are a mnney lender, i ou buy puts and calls nnd straddles r" The witnoss said that he dealt in those p.lvllegea "Kindly explain to the jury just what puts and calls and straddles are." the lawyer said encouragingly. The wltneaa anawered I "Ther are meana to aaslst men of moderate capital to operate." A aort of benvolnt Institution, eh?" queried Mr. Choate. "It is in a sense." Mr. Sage replied. It gives men of moderate means an opportunity to learn the methods nf business " " Do rou refer to puts or calla?" "To both." " I don't understand." "I thought you would not," remarked the witness with a chuckle. Mr. choate affected a verr puzzled look and asked, slowly: " is It something like this: they call it. and you put it? tf it goes down, they get the charitable beneflt: but if it goes up, you get It''' The witness answered simply: "I only gt what I am paid for the privilege." "Now. what la a atraddlef" Mr. Choate next asked. " A straddle." replied the wltni. I th privilege of calling or putting " iv by. exclaimed Mr. ( hoate. wltn raised brows, "that seem to me like a game of ebance" "it's a game of the fluctuation of the mar ket." "That's another way of putting it." Mr. ("hoate commented, look Ing as If he did not In tend a pun Then ho asked: "The market once went very heavy against you in this game, did il not ,'" " Yes. It did." the witness said. "That was an occasion when your customer could put . but they could not oall. eh 7" Mr Aage looked aa if he did not iinderataad, and made no reply. Mr. Choate then added: "Did you not. then, have to barricade your officer'' The wltneas made some reply not whir audible eoneernlng a party of Haiti more roughs who made a row about his oflloe for an hour when he refused to admit them. This branch of the question wa left In that vague condition, and the cross-examiner opened a new subject by unfolding a three column clipping from a newspaper whlih waa headed "A t hat with Husaell baga." Q Tha reporter called on yoa aooa after the explo sion? A. Yes. O. One vlallad yonr hunse I A Yes.

It developed that tha article whleb Mr. Choate referred to waa written by a grandnephew of the witness, vv hen It had thus been Identified Mr. Choate again asked the wltn if th arti cle was correct Col. Jainee exclaimed: "Are you Baking him to swear to the correctness of an article from that paper .' Nobody can do that No " Mr. i hosts 'luicklr responded; "lam asking him to point out Us error. Anyone can do that." This,' said Col. .fame. gravely, "la making a comedy of error" The witnea I roke in upon this little re laxation with the remark: ' The reporter who wrote that wa only In mr house Ova minutes. ' Indeed." exclaimed Mr ( haute lu astunlah ment. waving the three-column clipping, "he got a great deal out of you. and that Is more than I have been able to da It was then agreed between counsel tht Mr. Choate should read audi portions of the article as he selected, end ask tho witness regarding the correctness uf the statement to which hi attention should be called. The very first extract road developed a nice point it referred to a few cuts which the re porter had observed on Mr. :age'o face " made Lr glass" Mr. Choate was very anxious to know all about this. for. If the injuria to Mr. huge's face were made by glass. Laldlaw's counsel will argue that those lujurles were re ceived wbeu Mr. bage wa thrown In th th-oris on th floor, and ware got rooelved a Laldlaw's were, directly from the particles ahot out from the vailoe containing tho dy namite. They un thus still maintain that la d law acted as a shield to the defendant, but Mr. Hage was not certain that the injuries were so received, aod In a little sparring which ensued it came out that the reportorial grand nephew is now in otorado employed by the Missouri Pacific Hallway. 'That," remarked Mr i hoate. "le one of the railways ol which you are a director, and you are paying to keep your grandnephew out ther The next extract read waa a follows " Mr. Hage looks hale and hearty for an oil man; looks good for many years of Ufa raft " " is that true I" asked Mr. I hoaie. The witness replied . " We all try to hold on a long as we can." " Un speak for rouraelf when rou sar. ' Wa II try to hold un to all that we can' "Mr. ( hoate commented hut Col. Jauii remarked gravely. ( ouosel has mlatiuotea the lines He said.

How did you shave r'ursetf then, with your feet?" The lawyer then read something from the articlo which pretended to give Sir oage'a version of bis first meeting wub the bomb threw, aad it did not oorteapoad with th taailmenv the wltaae had int given In dtre examination The wltneaa aald, "My testimony to-day la mnre accurate than that article " The lawyer reapnaded. O, I have not got to year testi mony of to-day yet I don't know what It la . "Then your memory I worse than mine." tha witness responded with great satisfaction. Mr. Choate continued reading from the dip ping until he reached (ha point where tha arti cle repot ted the defendant as baring said that, a he hacked away from the dynamiter, he had linked around to ee where hi clerk. Norton, and laldlaw were. Mr. ( hoate want ed him to explain that statement In view of his direct testimony that he had never taken hi eye off the dynamiter after rending the tetter and until the explosion The witness rose frnm hi chair to demonstrate something and aa he dlil so ev-Attornay-Oenerai Ilrlstowtook a seat on the bench by the aide of Judge Pat terson. Tha witness faced the jary and leaned his back against the corner of the .fudge' desk, and while Mr. Choate held thedlnaram of the office expnsed to the iury. Mr. Hage, with an unusual amount of animation, said: " It waa Ilka this: I sw Nortross as I ss you now. and. without losing sight of him, I could turn my eye nnd see where Norton and laldlaw were, as I can sen the first four juror while still keeping you In view." Mr. Choate put his pencil on the point in the diagram where tho desk was designated, so that the jurr could aee that the witness had atood at one corner and I.aidlaw on nne side, and then Mr. Choate exclaimed auddealr to the witness "Can ynu now see Judge Patterson and Gen. Brlstowl" ' No." replied the wltneas. wheeling around "I t nought not." aald Mr. Choate In triumph, and they occupy exactly the aame relative position to yon as you face the iury. as, accord ing to ynnr own testimony. Norton and Laid law did when you faced N'orcross." The wltnesa took hie seat again In some eon fusion, but he waa not further subjected to cross-examination, as the dar's adjournment waa then taken. The teatimonr In the morning acsslon waa not of much Importance. Laldlaw wns first recalled to give a morn particular statement concerning the exact lo ation of the four men In the ofilcn at the time of the explosion. After that counsel agreed to the reading of the testimony given at the forme-trial on behalf of the plaintiff by Dr. A Ik Whitney, who 1 now out of town. Mr. Jessop, junior counsel for the plaintiff, read the report of Dr. Whif ney'a direct examination, nnd waa proceeding tn read his cross-examination when Judge Pnttereon suggested that that be done by Col. .inmes. The Colonel politely responded (hat I he wss satisfied with Mr. .lesaop'e resiling. but Mr. Choate refused to deprive the jury of I the advantage of hearing the Colonel a deep buss tones, and with theae charming ameni ties the fmnlllar medical testimony was read. Dr. Denis Hheehy of Ht. Vincent's Hospital repeated Irs testimony given at tha former trial During this examination Col. James thought to ninke It appear that Laidlaw'a loss of hearing In his left ear wa the result of the concussion, and not of the wound Inflicted near that ear. Witness had said to Col. James that, in his opinion, a man standing In tha presence of an exploeion of ten pounds of dyn amite would be likely to receive a shock that would Impair his hearing. Mr Choate asked what the effect of such a wound in the head as Laldlaw received would b apt to he In re spect to the wounded person's hearing. Col. Jnmes objected lo this question, and the Court remarked thst It was adangeroua queatlon ' Ihingernu to thd patient ''" asked Mr ( hoate. ' Uaogerous to everybody." said the Caurt Dr. William A. Moore, an ear specialist tea tilled that Laldlaw could hear the ticking of a watch onlr when It was pressed against his lett ear. but In his right ear could bear it a distance of four feet " How far can a normal ear hear tha ticking of a watch 7" asked Mr. Choato. " Forty-eight Inches." replied the specialist. 'I his simple reply caused n temporary ces'B tlon of all court proceedings. All the counsel took out their watchva and began testing their cars, and even the dignified Judge made a suspicious movement toward his pocket Tha aemor aounael, not being able to estimate u 1 1 A eight Inches, engaged each other's good offices in holding watches at that distance from ench other's ears. Nona of the counsel but roung Mr. Jeasop paid any further attention to the witnoss, who waa finally released, and Mr. Choate, regretfully putting away hla watch. announced that that constituted the plaintiff's case. fol. James th n moved to dismiss the cat on the following grounds: I irai Hecsuss itie plaintiff baa proved that hie la lory waa caneeil by the unlawful act of Moraroes la er'lii'!nr tt.e dynamite, anl baa not proved (oat tba i.si.nilsnt was in any way aocaaaory to aatd act, or re aponalhta tborofor, or oonnactsd uierewttb.

The same character of teatimonr waa given bra clerk In Mr Hage' office, who waa luckily absent from tha office at tha time of the exploaion. but returned there a few minute later.

Heyermaa for the loaa of the corvette Kear aarge Feb. 'J waa raeomed yesterday at tha Nary Yard In Brooklyn. Commander Crownln ahleld Identified hla testlmonr of th pre ceding day Ideutennnt-Cnmmander Maris raid that Commander Heyerman had not re ceived from the Navy Department the copy of hi Ulerermon'ei record In aeeord anee with hi request, but that th accused waa willing to proceed. He then read th defence and final etatement prepared by th sec a sod officer. It waa in part aa fol lows: " That I should be accused ot having through negligence suffer.! a vaa1 of th navy to run upon a reef and be stranded waa a complete surprise to m That I did not steer a course that took me clear of Roncador Heef la un doubtedly true, land I equally acknowledge that there wa plenty of aaa room to tha north ward for ma to do so had my judgment dic tated that auch would be th proper method of navigating under th elrcumtnce. But that I neglected or failed to do ao Is not estab lished by on word of testimony. If that la negligence, than muat a man he held negligent for evet r aet of his Ufa whleh is not followed by favorable results." The Commander disavowed any desire to throw blame on anyone elae. ss ha waa re sponsible for every course steered br the ahlo. He gave an account of the manner la whleh the Kearsarg bad been navigated, and eon eluded with a declaration of hla confidence that, if tha court should find that he had erred. t would b in judgement only, and In de gree, less than bad been charged. He, how ever, had atill greater confidence that ba would be acquitted. Judge Advocate Keller then began reading the Government's side of the ca Ha aald that " from the beginning the prosecution la willing to coneede that Commander Heyermaa did not neglect many of tha duties Imposed npon an officer of th navy In command of a ahlp about to approach land or danger, nor that any of the testimony showed the desire of the prosecution to Impute the claim that Commander Hayerman carefully considered the waters be had to traverse. The proof of his negligence rested In the fast that when about fifty-five milea north aod eaat i ot Koncador ha shaped and maintained a course which lay cloae to a dan- fierous ref. Furthermore, that th neg igence became culpable lnefilaienoy In the performance of duty. when with full realiza tion of the danger to be avoided. Commander llevermnn failed to Increase tha apaed of hla vessel, ns he might hsve done, so that llonoa dor might have been sighted In broad day light: and what Is more, the gravity of tha offenoe Is accentuated br th 'net that when the dlstanoe from an assumed true position of the ahlp to the position of imminent danger was with acourate Instruments recorded, and though aware of the difficulty of sighting the danger to be avoided, ha did not. before dark ness fell, haul off to aome aafa course in tba clear water to the north." The closing statement waa: " This disaster was due. ao far as the proae eutlon may read between the lines of testl monr. to skirting a dangerous reef in tha dark which even in broad daylight was a men ace to navigators due alao to a queer per sistency which maintained a course that up to noon. I ah It. was einectel to carry a vaaaai aa'ely around the north edge of a bank seven miles In extent, and which, after 12 '-fi. was with equal safety, expected to carry a vessel around tha north end of the aame danger. The failum to sight tbs reef In its assumed position before darkness fell, aided and abetted by this neglect, fortified the sad chances already threatening the disaater. " 1 mall v. crowning mishap with mishap, tha holding of a course in the neighborhood of a dangerous sboal because the only aaaurance It had yielded ot safety was that at aunset no land-fall had been made of a danger," After this the court was cleared for delibera tion on a verdict The proceeding of the court in such a deliberation is, flrat. a discussion of all teatlmony. Than the flrat specification is taken up and the junior officer Is asked by the president if it is proven, not proven, or proven in part. Th next officer in rank is aaked next, and so on until all havs wrltea their nrlnione on paper and paaaed them to th presiding of ficer. Next follow the question aa to whether the defondant Is guilty, not guilty, or guilty In a leas degree of the llrst charge. Then the next charge la taken up. When all theae answers have been made the eourt proceeds to the awarding of punishment, taking the least pun ishment for the offence, and asking the officers In turn, always beginning with the junior, if sueh punlahment fits the case. If not. tha next heaviest punishment Is taken, until a majority agree on nne punishment This Is the finding of the eourt. and it is forwarded to the Navy Department with the sentence writ ten out.

Secretary Herbert 1 itrongly of the opinion that the name of the wrecked ship should not be lost from the list ot American vessels, and upon this point expressed him self with considerable feeling saying: "I think it would be well to have the next battle ship authorized by Congress named the hearsaige ( ongresa can put In the bill, when it aulliories another ship, that It abould ba named the Kearaarge. The rule has been adopted, and probably ought to be adhered to. that battle ships should he named for the States, and ao far thla rule haa been complied with If an exception, however, ahould ba made br ao act of Congress, and an authoriza tion made for building anotberKearaarge.lt would go aa far a anything el I know of to make reparation for tha loas of th historic old ship." Tb wrecking oompany will be amply remu nerated for sending tha Orion to Honcador Reef. In addition tO the hiirh lirlces thst can la secured for relics.
