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

Herman Groenke wus also exhumed, and
the liver will be examined. Mrs. Meyer is

twice as the latter sat in front of the cell,

trouble arose because Johnson compelled
the prisoner to sit down when he was at

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
1 4 ;
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
For the first time the keen cross examin

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

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."

"Fifteen or 20 minutes."
