GLOUCESTER DESERTED. Ulnofloil Horses, Trainers an<l Jockey» Date For the West. PniLADtiLPHlA, March2*.—That thefinsl gleam of hope of horse racing lit Gloucester has expired was evidenced when the last of the racers which have been wintering iu the stables at the truck were shipped to the west. The only horses now remaining are those iu the hands of the sheriff, held to satisfy feed bills contracted by their own ers. l)an Honig's biw string of about 80 horses was the last to be shipped to St. Louis. Many of the horses are of the best blood, and not a few- of them have won big money Ht Gloucester. At one time in the history of the Glouces ter track not less than 1,500 race horses were stabled then, and in the immediate vicinity. Now there are about 50 specimens left nt the place, und they are likely to be disposed of soon at sheriff's sale. There were 590 days of actual racing at the Gloucester track, lasting from Jan. 25, 1892, to Nov. 30, 1893. There wan but one day of intermission in ull that time. Over 12,000 people witnessed the closing race, and it was estimated that the average dai ly attendance was 8,000 from the first day. It is further estimated that William J. Thompson derived a revenue of not less thau $1,000 a day from the track. Gloucester is now a deserted village. Nothing is left of it but the shad fisheries —and they belong to Thompson a<£ ome manufarluring interests which scuut living to the inhabitants. It is ru mored that Thompson proposes to make it a summer resort of unique character. More Charges Agslnst }î KACIXK, Wis., March 28.—A startling discovery has lieen made in the case ot Mrs. Meyer, who was recently brought hack from Brooklyn on a charge of poison ing her former husband, Herman Groenke.

Washington, March 28.—The defense In the Pollnrd-Breckinridge trinl took n new tack nud ventured upon the troubled sea of expert testimony. Two witnesses well known in Washington— Dr. K. M. Schaef fer, the deputy coroner of the District of Columbia, and Mr. Kdwin D. Hay, nn at torney who is something of n local Chaun cey Depew—appenrcil for the Kentucky congressman, and their statements were directed to the support of the contention that the hand of Madeline I'ollard penned « .v: < r „.tt'i i u S \Hki t. i i '4, im llm 4 F v / «*'■ l! t r-. r, 1 4 ; -• ms / L JEREMIAH WILSON. tlie black bordered letter in 1385, which slip Inas most emphatically disavowed twice over on the witness stand. Great streu» is laid by the defense upon the authenticity of this let ter—Rot because ir runs counter to the testimony of the plaintiff that Colonel Breckinridge first called upon her nt the Wesleyan academy of her own volition, but because they think if she can be proved false on one im portant detail her whole statement will be impeached. The signature to the letter also goes to support the opening statement of the defense on a minor detail—viz: That Miss Pollard had adopted at that time the middle name of Breckinridge. This letter, which has figured so conspicu ously in the case and which the defense will fight to get before the jury, is as fol lows: For the first time the keen cross examin ing pow er of Judge Jere Wilson, whost work has been awaited with interest by hit fellow lawyers, was brought into play. It was first exercised on Major Moore, t ht chief of police, who was called hack to tils pule some of Miss Pollard's statements re garding the two interviews in his offlet during which Colonel Breckinridge repeat ed bis promises to marry her. Major Moore denied that in either of th. two interviews Colonel Breckinridge had said, "This is one of life's tragedies," ot that he had said anything about Miss Pol lard bearing two children or isoug prig liant. In neither interview had Colonel Breckinridge said. "She knew 1 wus a mar ried man when It occurred," nor had Mis. Pollard said, "Yes, I gave myself to him." "How long did that interview last»' asked Judge Wilson in cross examination "Fifteen or 20 minutes." "A great deal was said that you dou'l rcmeuiber?" "Yes sir." Ausweriog further questions, the mnjoi said tlint he bail only made notes of what impressed his mind after the interview wai concluded; that Miss Pollard and Colone Breckinridge had talked all the time. Mis. Pollard seeming excited and doing most ol the talking, while Colonel Hrecktnridgi seemed cool. He would not pretend that he recalled everything. Much had beet said which he could not remember, us that part of the conversation he hud recorded iu liis notes would not have occupied mon than half a minute. His attentiou had not been called tp the conversation for tlim months afterw ard. Judge Wilson nud Major Moore. Tlie second interview, it w as develop* - under cross examinât ion, had lasted nearly an hour, hud been less exciied thau the first, Miss Pollard doing most of the talk Mi»» Bollard's Letter. WE8 I.EYA» College, July 20.18*4. Dear Colonel Bueckmridok—Y our letter came to me Saturday. I am glad you told it would bo inconvenient to come out here to the college, for If you had gone to ever such a little trouble to listen to wliat sometime« over* burdens a schoolgirl*» mind you might lie in clined to lie provoked with yourself. A preach er'» opinion of little affair» of mine would cause premature gray hair», where your opinion might clear away all doubts and fears and let me be quite free hearted ugain. i think. 1 have »repured you for a divorce case; but, listen, it is worse tlmn that. If a certain person should advance funds fo» my tuition here al school for three >ear» un del tho promise that I marry him ut the expiration of the time, could he do anything if (would not marry him, but teach and refund all he hud advanced? 1 know you think, "Why tho de ception?" But on no other terms will he. agree. When a girl \uiitii nothing but a good education and means to obtain such are denied her, what !» »lie to do but take the only chance she is evei likely to bave. I liked your face, and 1 am sur« 1 would like you, and if at any future time you are in the city ami would care to come around remember t.hat home faces are alw ays welcome 1 am very respectfully yours. ' Madeline H. Pollard. uu-'. "This was the interview of the 17th May, when Miss Pollard narrated tlmt *h* lay on the sofa, Colonel Breckinridge sat beside her, and afterward lie took hei hand iu his and your hand nud promised to marry her! 1 " repeated Judge Wilson aiming to emphasise au old score. "Yes, sir." Then when Judge Wilson asked if any thing hail been »aid or done to Indicate that t he promise of marriage was merely a scheme between the two made in good faith the defense was stren uouh in its objections, protesting that called for an opinion which should both« province of the jury, not of a witness. Judge Bradley admitted it, however, and the major said nothing had been doiu of t he sort to indicate a scheme such had litten described. After some minor points tiad lieen dis cussed Dr. Schaeffer was called, sou stirred lip such u cloud of verbal dust around the expert's testimony that th« spectators hardly knew whether the lettet purported to have cvuie front the plaintiff to the defendant or the reverse. During the cross examination Mr. Wil sou endeavored unsuccessfully to makt Dr. Sohaeller asseut to the proposition that from a nutter of letters dissimilar he had irawn the conclusion that, t he two letter* were written by the same person. He did ivoke the admission that handwriting was «omet imes so skillfully forged os to deceive »xperts.

Whilo ic had not been told wliat the defense wanted to prove by hint. Or. Schaeffer con :ludtd, he had inferred, lie would not bave permitted anyone to tell hltu that they wanted him to testify to uuy particu lar thing. Fan With Colonel nay. A brief redirect examination broni.ht this testimony to n close find brought to ;he stund the |sirtly form und beaming lace of Mr. Edwin 11. Hay, who gave bis yocupation as member of the bar; wild that ae had devoted special attention to com - jarlaon of handwritings for 25 years, and among other eases be tia.l testified ns an •Xpert in the celebrated Oliver-Camcron saxe, in which the hue Senator Simon "au.er. m of i'eiiuxy Ivunia had been the de fendant. "Now, Major Hay," began Mr. Butter worth. "Not 'major,' thunk you," interrupted Mr. Hay, with a graceful wave of the land. "Colonel, if you please," put in Judge Wilson. "He is not from Kentucky," exptatnad fudge Bradley. "Then he is not armed," Mr. Butter A-orth said. Beginning his testimony, Mr. Hay said .hat uu examination and comparison had amvinced him that the "Wessie" Brown elter and the letter in question were, writ ten by the same band. There was a free- j e and carelessness iilmut t he lat lorn, eus *r w hich dispelled the idea that it was a itudied Imitat iou. The lower loops of I sit h letters exhibited the same characteristics. rhe"u's" w ere the same, and the capitals •xhibited a variety of styles not found in orgeries. Upon a blackboard which wm sung beside him Mr. Hay proceeded to live uu exposition, and he was about to -xliibit the letter to the jury when Mr. Wilson objected that the letter h:ul not fet been placed in evidence and was sus .uined by Judge Bradley, Mr. Shelby pro - ;esting tiint it was customary to show dis puted letters to the jurors in the first in •tauce and permit them to judge for them .elves. Judge Bradley ended the controversy by aying that letters were not now submit ;ed until there had been sufficient evidence hearing on the genuineness of the docu ments to justify it. F.xpert Hay talked lik« i writing master before his class, handling Ihe different specimens of Miss Pollard's hand aud explaining how they had been aiHde at different times with different pens and with pens held iu different posi tions. "Colonel, colonel," began Judge Wilson In cross examination, whereat another laugh at tlie expense of Mr. Hay traveled »mong ids professional colleagues in court. Jmlge Wilson tjulzr.es Hay. Judge Wilson was proceeding to inquire about the number of experts in the Came ron ease when the defense objected. Colo nel Phil Thompson protesting: "We are uot trying the Cameron case. This may lie a niece of hers, but it ain't the same woman." Judge Wilson explained that he wanted to show that there were experts on both sides in every case. Major But terworth de clared that two meulooking ul a dog fight would testify differently. "But the difference iu thecaseof the dog fight," retorted Mr. Wilson, "is that l would la* looking at tbe under dog anil my friend Butterworth at the upper dog." Tlie question was filially admitted, nud Mr. Hay told that he had been ou the side of Senator Cameron in the famous ease ami that a majority of the experts were. "Call it the Oliver case," remarked Mr. Thompson. ' Probably because Senator Cameron had the greater resources he was able to secure a majority of the experts," ventured Mr. Wilson. Judge Bradley rapped sharply on his warniug the attorneys that their *ide remarks und laughter must be stopped, Mr. Hay gave it as his opinion that liand writing could uot be successfully imitated iu " l""* *«*ter, «'»1 Mr. \\ ilson asked him •* •!»' person who wrote the contested let ter *»«"1 uot given himself away by a too free use of I lie pen in the word July.* Mr. Hay denied that such wus the case, Miss Pollard s was a very difficult humi writing to imitate, if not an impossible °»i*- imitators in some pinces must show nervousness, but in the letter before him there were no traces of it. Mr. Hay said that Desha Breckinridge, son of the d* fendant, had brought him the letters, hut young Breckinridgo would not permit to be explained to witness w hat was expeut ed to lie proved uutil witness had made •'i ft investigation, although he had sur misrd it. After declaring that no person could have the nerve successfully to im Rate another's handwriting through a long letter—a declaration w hich involved sparring over the moral and physical aspects of the w ord "nerve'—Mr. Hay bowed himself from the stand, and court adjourned._ *, More (.riivi smili r« Convicted.

A thin covering of snow was on the fields, and not to exceed a dozen people had as ■embled in the streets to see the common weal march by. Flocks of chickens strut ting around the big red barns of this sec tion were the subject of remark, but no man undertook to molest them. Army tongs were rendered under the direction of Astrologer Rutland's newly organized ?lee club. On the way the army passed the lonely :ump of Honore Jaxon, the Chicago half breed. He is tbe queerest character in the amp. hut there is method in his mndnew, and the end sought is free advertising, llc *t«rted from Massillon with only a sack ol >tttmeftl a* his food supply. His plan is to keep a few hours ahead of theexpedi lion, aud he is looked upon as a fore runner. His fur cap, woolen coat, blanket nud moccasins serv ed ns mi excellent protec tion against the weather, mid be carried a light ux to Iw used for carving firewood and possibly tramps. His camp was seen in n dense brush near the road lea.ling to Mnximo, but he bad passed on toAllinuee. He had cut down a lot of tree branches for the construction of a rude cabin, and be tide it were the embers ot his campfire. As n rule people viewed the caravan from their houses, mid not to exceed a dozen viewed ll from tbe roadside. At Maximo alunit 50 men hud assembled, but owing to the small number the plan of holding a meeting was ahnudoued. The march is conducted nt the rate of about three miles per hour. At the end of almost every mile a hall is called to rest the men mi<l horses. A score of men was all that witnessed the departure from Louisville. The army arrived in Alliance footsore and weary ami at once set out upon it beg giug expedition. Toes have begun to peep from shoes that have yielded to t he hard service of the march, and the lack of clothes is still severely felt. Clothing and other supplies w ere asked for, hut little was ob tained. No dinner, and only cheese, bread, potatoes* and black coffee on the evening bill of fare, havu caused much grumbling, und it may lead to open mutiny. Covey Leaves Temporarily.
