Laldlaw against Russell Kage was decided resterday afternoon in favor of the plaintiff, to whom the jury awarded $26,000 damages alter aa hour's de liberatJoB. A verdict favorable to the plaintiff had been anticipated br those who had watched the oaae throughout, to an extent In dicated br the fact that beta of two to ono on audi a verdict were freelr offered but timidly taken. The ease was given to the jurr at 3:00 o'clock and the verdict waa recorded at 4:67. In the morning Justice Leslie Russell of Og densburg and Juatioe Peckham of the Court of Appeals at on the bench with Judge Patter son, and very many lawyers occupied seats within tbe bar. a number of them having ladies with them. Col. .lame recalled Frank Robinson, tbe young broker's clsrk who was outside the par tition In Mr. Sage's office when the explosion occurred In which Laldlaw was injured, and endeavored to restore his testimony to the shape It waa In before Mr. Cboate's eroca-ex-amlnation of tha witness on Thursday after noon. But he remained a good witness for the plaintiff, as he could not be Induced to modify his tsatlmony. brought cut by Mr. t'boate. that from the time he saw Norcreaa draw a pistol he did not ngaln look at Sage and Laldlaw. aad that Sage might have had time to draw Laldlaw toward him In that Interval. Mr. Sage was recalled br Mr. Cboete and told to hold up to tba light the diagram which baa been referred to as tbe Saga diagram, and sar If ha could not see partially erased lines which showed that. a. at flrat mads, tbs dia gram Indicated that It waa Impossible for a man sitting in Mr. Sage's private office to see tbe table where Sage and Laldlaw stood when the explosion oocurred. Witness admitted that he aaw evidences of alterations, but would not ear that he could tell what they Indicated. Mr. Cboete offered tbe diagram In evidence, but It was ruled out Then he called Mr. Taggert junior counsel for tho defence, and. making him a witness for the plaintiff, questioned him about, the dia gram, and thereafter again attempted to get It In evidence. He was very much in earnest, and counsel oa both sidee displayed much heat during this Incident and concerning soma remarks about an uncalled witaesa. the man Janice, who .at In the prlvateofllee at tbe time of tbe explosion. What all the feeling waa about waa not made clear until Mr. I'hoate referred to the uncalled wltaeaa in his Bumming up. CoL James began bis summing up for the de fendant at 11.30 and rspoke until 2 o'clock. He referred to tbe assertion made by Noah Davia in hla opening for the plaintiff that Mr. Sage should have "jollied" Noreroes. " I know of one such instance." said CoL James. ' A man whoae name waslMano wae approached by a lunatic who threatened him with a club. Mr. Mann thought ha would aaaa the situation by treating the lunatic aa Judge Davis think Mr. Sage ahould have treated Norrros. So he said ' Don't attack us. We are twu. I'm a mau and Mr. Mann.' ' Well ' aid the lunatic, I'm a man beelde myself, and we'll whip you.' aad be did." CoL Jamee made bla best point in Insisting that even if Mr. Sege did move Laldlaw ha ooitld not br that act, have increased I-nid- " Laldlaw ante claim ta have been moved two feet," he aald. "and In that room, a room net much bigger than the jury box. there was no place Of eafety. Norton, who was aeveral feet further from Neroroaa than Laldlaw was. wa blown out of th window." Col. Jamee waa making great headway with the jury with aa argument baaed on hla aa Mimptlon that it devolved upon the plaintiff to abow that ha waa removed from a place of safety to one of danger, when Mr. Choate In terrupted him. "lam compelled." said Mr. Choate "to Buggest tbat CoL Jamee misapprehends the law as It waa Indicated by the General Term In considering thla case aa appeal. Ae a matter of fact, the General Term eet up the principle that it devolved oa tbe defendant to show that the plaintiff would have received equal dam ages In tbe place from which he waa removed. assuming he was moved " Judge Patteraon agreed with Mr. Choate. Col. Jamaa made one curioua admlssloa. Re said that be believed that the plaintiff real Ir believes the story hs tell, but Is laboring un der aa halluclatlon ; that the facts nave be come distorted In his mind. In conclusion t'ol. James asked tka jury that on getting to the jury room they first tell each other what each of them would have done la Mr. Sage's situation, and ahould they not agree, then to ask themselves bow tber can agree on what Mr Sage's conduct should have been "If In the awful terror of tbat moment Mr. Sage did aclxe tbat youag man. It waa but tha Involuntary aet of self preservation; not an act which make defendant guilty of wrong intention." After recess Mr. Choate. who had been turn ing over the pages of tha court Bible, began on tha jurr this war: Aad David put Bl. Band Is Bla bag aad took tB.ace a too., aad alang it. ud .luul IB Phlll.tta. la hi. tor. tiaaa. that the .ton. aaaa uue Bla forehead, and b. f.li upou bl. fae. I th. earth.

" I have read you a etory from a book we all enually revere, said Mr. choate. "and It seem to me that this trial Is a good dsal like that .lory In this caae I repreamt Davtd. and myfrlend. CoL James. representeOollatli " It bad been a etruggle for fife at tha en trance of tba court room Judge Patteraon lnaiated upon bis order that only aa many peraona abould be admitted ae there were seats for. Exactly at 3 o'clock Mr. Choate bowed to tho Judge and to Judge 1'eckham of tbe Court of Appeals who aat on tha bench with him, was politely bowed to In return, and began with the three veraee from I. bamuel xvlL. quoted above. Mr. I'hote reed In a commeadablr pioue tone, closed the Bible, and after to had likened tbe principals in tbe caae to David and Goliath, planted tha knuckle of both liande on the counsel table leaned far over toward the jury, aad said In au Impreeeive manner: Mr eiieat has been stripped of bis armor. aad lie hae no weapou but one little ntnooth atone tbe truth. But your verdict shall be the aword of Goliath which my David shall take wherewith to cut off the head of the Itilllattee. My friend on tbe opposite aide baa asked you for a disagreement . that le, he baa asked you to put yourselves In the place of Mr. Sag, and challenged you to agree aa to what In bta place you would have done uader the eireuaa staacea developed on tbie trial lack for no dlaagrwcment If you cannot agree for tbe plantlff. agree then for I be defendant, but give your verdict ..a the evidence Do not be moved by eympetny " A good deal haa been said about sympathy duiing ths course of this trial, and It waa ex pected that la tbe summing the jury would be warned more by tbe oouaael for ilia defendant than for tba plalaUff against sympathy. So this warning of Mr. Choate' s attraoted a little aeuaatiunal eurpriae. which geve bim au ex eellent opportunity for hla point lie pauaad. aud then, having every one wondering how be was going to make use of tbe ernipaJhy plea, &otaqulck laugh by aolemaly demanding of te jurr.

Rehring Sea affairs absorbed the attention of the Cabinet to-dsr. almost to the exclusion of everything else. aad at the eud of the meeting active steps had bean commenced looking to the protection of the fur seals aad tha apprehension of poach ers, regardless of the flag they fly. It Is aald upon the most creditable authority that the State Department doee not expect to accomplish anything with Great Britain under a treaty supplemental to the award of the Court ef Arbitration, for the reason that every proposition advanced haa been met with a counter proposition tending to weaken the force and effect of that award. Tha President and the Department have also Drastically abandoned all hope of securing a continuance of the modus vlvendl. nnd If thla hall prove to be the case the President has decided to aet under ths authority of tbe act of Congress of February. lHi'.i. Several days ago Mr. Carter of Hie American counsel before the Court of Arbitration was summoned to Washington, and with Senator Morgan, a member of the court, bad a long conference wltn tbe 1'resldent and Secretary Greeham. The result of that conference wan thst the President waa convinced that there waa existing authority sufficient for the I'nitod Stales to act of Ita own accord II Great Britain maintained ita apparent nlll tude of delay. The whole aubject waa dis cussed to-day. Mr. Greeham laying before the Cabinet a new bill, incorporating certain regu lations In line with the award, the passage of which, he said, wonld-lndlcate to England that the United States desired the cooperation ahe had. prior to tbe meeting of tbe Court of Arbi tration, pledged hereslf to give. The Impera tive need of prompt nation was shown, and the instructions issued te the Secretary of tbe Navy Indicate that such action will be taken. Secretery Herbert waa directed by tbe I'ree Ident to assemble all the fleet be possibly could In Pacific waters, and Immediately after the Cabinet meeting secret ordere were Issued to the proper officers for the gathering of a fleet to escort ths fur seal herd through the northern Paoiflc Into llehrlnv Sea. beginning with May 1, when the open season closes. The Secretary already has twelve vessels at his disposal for this work, and It Is said tbat one or two more, possibly an armored cruiser. mar be assigned to this work. In an Interview thlc evening Senator Mor- an. Chairman of the Committee on Foreign elation, said that he was aatiifled with the attitude of the Administration In refer ence to the Behrlng Sea award, and that the statute passed before the tribunal met to provide for the execution of the award when It should be made will be enforced unlecsamodtis vlvendl should be agreed upon between the two Governments, which will give ample time after Mar 1 for providing br law BUlTtclent safeguards for tha seal herds both against oitlrens ef tbe United States and of Great Britain. Mr. Morgan added that ha expected to be able to report from bla Committee on Foreign Relations, on Mondnr or Tuesday of next week, a bill establishing regulation In detail which the tribunal had no power to establish, and which will be satis factory to both Governments. If tbs bill that Is now pending In Parliament ehould be substantially aa effective la lte operation on British subjeots as the bill lie ex pects to report will be upon cttlnens of the I nlted State. Mr. Morgan eald the two Gov ernments would he brought into agreement which would result In the full and complete enforcement of the award. The hill which Mr. Morgan will report will leave the President of the I nltod States In full possession of tbe power conferred by the act of 1S03, uader which there caa, be aald. be no difficulty in tbe com plete protection of the seal herd In the Northern Paclfla aad Pehrlug Sea against ihe eoejroeehmants of British puachera Mr. loT.TaSald he vra-tra.:fl ed o be ants r. statu that thl waa tbe attitude of the Oorei nmeat of the lolted Btates. and that there would be no failure on our pert to assert the full measure of the rights of the I'nitod state.

Ther arose out of the strike on the Mutual Reserve Fund building oa Tueadar. The etrike there began over the employment of some non-union elevator men. but later tbe old trouble about the steam litters' union's attempt to absorb tbe helpers' union cropped up. The carpen ters belonging to the I nlted Brothorbood of Carpenters refused to go out. and it Is alleged that tbe carpenter bad made a aecret com Pact with the eteam Utters to resist tbe Board of Walking Delegate. The latter appointed a committee of seven to order strlkss wherever Urotherhood car penters were employed. Brotherhood car penters wsre found on the Manhattan Ufa. Home Ufa. and Postal Telegraph buildlnge. The contractor on the two latter decided In order that work might not stop tu lock out the earpantere. numbering about 200 In all, so tbat the other trades continued at work. The contractor oa the Manhattan life building would not listen to lbs committee, aad a gen eral atrlka waa ordered, which brought 250 men out. The plasterera tried to compromise matters and a general meeting of the board of Walk ing Delegate was held. During the meeting word came that the other side had epoken tu E K Harper.

Bagly Bividad. Wxsyiixn-roit. March 80. The Democratic party In the Houaa of Representatlvee la not to have the misfortune of a Speakership fight at this time. It Is well that this Is ao. for probably the party la Congress has never before been In such a disorganized and de moralieed oondltion. The makeshift Tariff bill, and Prestdant Cleveland's veto of the Seigniorage bill, which passed both Houses br a large majority, aad which followed the long financial discussion, to say nothing of the many unimportant matters that have created III feeling within the party, have almoat split the Democ racy In two. But for this fact Speaker Crisp would gladly have aeeeptod the high honor that haa bean tendered him. He will sacrifice himself for the good of his party and put aside the crown for the praaent. la view, however, of the fact that Judge Crisp Is In many respects the ablest public maa in Georgia to-dar. and aa Gov. Korthen strongly appreciate this fact It Is probable tbat at tha expiration of the term for which the late Senator Colquitt waa elected, which Is the 4th of March. 1805. Mr. Crisp will be elected a Senator for the full term of six rears, sod that in the meaa time some maa will bo appointed to fill out the unexplrnd term In tbe Senate who will not be a formidable rival. Tbla, at least. Is tho programme marked out br Mr. Crisp's friends, but It is possible that Gov. Northen. wbo has Ssnatorlal aspirations him sslf. and who Is besieged by the friend of ether candidates mar not be willing to band the Senatorsblp ovsr to Mr. Crisp, as he does now. Of course, if Mr. Crisp should accept tho ap pointment aa Senator, he would be ta a posi tion to make It Impossible for aay ooc to de lect him for the long term, but whatever bla future ohaooea might be, there le no doubt that he performs au aet of great aelf-saartfloe in remaialng In the Bpeaker'a chair till tha cod of the preseot Coogresa The Democratic member of the House out side tha Georgia delegation were strongly op posed to the Speaker's retirement They be lieve hla resignation at this time would pre cipitate a contest for tbe Speakership that would be undesirable la vlsw of the party dlf fereaeee on tha silver and other queatlona.

Precklnrldge's ordeel oa tbe wltnesg . i stand in the Criminal Court room was much I the same aa the first, except that to-day tha defendant's testimony was not Interrupted by tLM disputes between tbe lawyer. For more then five hours he stood before the jury and con tinued the Interesting story of hi life duiing the ten years that he has been acquainted with , t Madeline Pollard. Tho remarkable feature of 1 Col. Breckinridge's testimony, aside from his Interesting and picturesque personality snd his present unhappy surroundings. In the laet that in his narratives he Is denying unequivo cally and in detail every Important statement made by the plaintiff and the witnesses in her behalf, except tbe one claim tbat he held im proper relations with tier To-day Col. Breck inridge denied absolutely that he ever gave the plaintiff the slightest Indication that he in tended to marry her. He also denied tbat he ever had even aa intimation, until this suit , was brought, that Miss Pollard had ai any time given birth to a living child, or that he' was responsible for her children. He said, moreover, that on three separate occasion plaintiff threatened to kill him. A noticeable feature of CoL Breckinridge's testimony Is that ha makes his dsalal of svsry charge so sweeping that it Includes all the testimony presented to the court in behalf of tbe plain- i tiff, so tbat her ease. If CoL Breckinridge ie I tolling the truth, stands forth as a shsm and a fraud, without ona partiole ot oundatlont from beginning to end. V CoL Breckinridge la beginning to lose the air p, of oarelassness and nonchalance that has if marked his appearance slnos the trial began -. until yesterday. Tbe fearful ordeal of being 1 compelled to stand In the witness box before a It jury and tell every circumstance of his life for ! the past ten rears, while a crowd ot curious- i m Inded. scandal-loving Amarloan cit i.ens look j ! bim In the face. Is having a marked effect upoa j li I m. It waa eaar to aea to-dar that he waa embarrassed aad 111 at ease, and that he ' was making a supreme effort to main tain his composure. He spoke deliberately and chose his words with care. He could not be kept dowa to the questionings ot Major Butterwortb. but when he had any thing to sar rattled on In his musical, high pitched voice until he had said all that be wanted to, and all tbe time he talked Miea Pollard, her faoe as white as chalk, bad her . eres fastanad upon him. Several times when he denied the truth of statements made by her aad ber witnesses she seemed about to rise and either address bim or the jury. Once or twice she did cry out broken sentences, but her companion, Mra Ellis, and her counsel. Mr. Carlisle, succeeded in pacifying hsr. aad t she remained quiet until the court adjourned i for the dar. 1 At too claaa of each day's Session Miss Pol lard aad Mra K!hj remain la their eeets until the court room Is practically oleared, and ti.un ther go Into tho corridor and down the stone steps to the inn.iu.nt floor, pass through tho lower eorrldor to the outside of the building and across the street to Mr. Carlisle's ofllcee. As tbe two women emerge esoh day from ths doorway into the street ther find a double file ot men ranged along the walk from the door to the street curb through which ther arc compelled to paaa while tha mea atara at tha plaintiff la this famous breaeb of promise ease. As Miss Pollard passes through this 11ns of msn she never raises ber ere, but clings to the arm ot Mra Kills, with hsr face set. and the women hurry along as fast as their (set caa carry them. Col. Breckinridge took the stand a tew mln utee after the court waa called to order. Wbea Major Butterwortb put the first question CoL Breckinridge began the telling of bis story with no more trepidation than he shows when addressing the House of lteprosentatlves. He did not -.it down, but atood leaning easily oa tbe Judge's desk, his ringers fumbling ner vously with bis watch chain. Major Butterwortb started proceedings by showing the deiendant the little deeoratlve baeket whieh the plaintiff says was given her by Col Breckinridge with tb remark. "Made line, thl waa lssy's meaning Ins dead wife1. .1 and 1 want yen to have It" col. Breckinridge Bald tbe basket was given to his late wife by her sister. Miss Desha, who had brought it from Nantucket and he had aeon it lai In tbe furnlehed rooms he bad taken when hie children went back to Kentucky. He denied tbat be gave it to Miea Pol lard. " I did not give her the basket " he said. " I did not know she had the basket. I did not give It to her at the train. I did not take her to the train. I did not see Alls Pol lard tbat night 1 did not ee her at alL I learned that aome baaket was In her posses- tj slon after the suit wa Iliad, but I did not know what basket it was until it waa produced 1 here" CoL Breckinridge said he bad no i knowledge as to how the basket came Into Mis Pollard' possession, "i onlr know that it was not given to her. directly or indirectly, br me. uor with my consent or connivance." "Now. Colonel, aald Major Bulierworth. " state what took place oa tbe Jd of August. 1SM4 the day alter the carriage ride with the plaintiff." " I entered the car for Lexington and found the plaintiff sitting lu It. She waa not there by any prearraagemeat with ma I spoke to her, and our eonvereetion reeulted In an arrange ment lo meet tbat evening in Lexington.
