Washington', April 11.—Colonel Phil Thompson, formerly a member of congres» from Kentucky and oneof the best known men in Washington, entertained the jury in the Pollard-Breckinridge case with a pyrotechnic speech such as has rarely lieen heard in this section. The Blue (iras» or a tor once hnrl n great reputation a» a stump »peaker, and Washington had a chance to see ou what the fame is founded, Colonel Thompson is a thick set, cliub hy. fed faced man, with scant hair on the top of h .„ , lt , a j.

His speech Was sprinkled with anecdotes, °» them too broad for reproduction, ,,nd hi« views regarding the stability of the ^„nth commandment will doubtless provoke response from the pulpits of New England, plea in her behalf. '»'» le speech of Colonel Thompsou will he concluded today, and then Major Butter worth, another ex-congressman, who ia a mild s;»oken Quaker, will follow him. Mr. Carlisle Finishes. Attorney Calderon Carlisle took aphis review of the testimony where he hail dropped it and devoted himself for the first half hour particularly to a discussion of Mrs Governor Blackburn's testimony, lie ruhearsud in a nmuner devoid of rhetorical attitudes and in a colloquial tone how Colonel Breckinridge hud brought to the Kentucky lady the plnintiff in this case, BUJ .j n>ç t ; lat she was much to him new and would l»«* more in the future, M in in t n 1 ed to make her hia wife 1 he attorney compared the character of his client with that of the congressman. Madeline Pollard did not bear the terms in which her fellow Kentuckian referred to her as au adventure»» and shameless woman because she left thu court a» soon a» Mr. Calderon Carlisle had lluished his "What is left now of lier life?" he asked. ' The opportunity has passed for him to make that reparation which he owed to her aud himHelf. When you consider tbe character of the witnesses on both sides, when you think of this man, with power socially, politically and otherwise, who acquired domination over this unfortunate K*rl, who ruined her life, you cannot but believe that he promised to make good to her the ruin orf her life; you cannot, with ,,u ' thought of the mothers and daughters in the land, refuse to make the only possi Wo reparation to this unfortunate plaiu tiff." Reminding them of the 860,000 which the declaration would allow them to award, Mr. Carlisle closed his plea, and Miss Pol lard ttud htjr companion left the room. Colonel Thompson's Address, Then Colonel Phil Thompson faced the Jury. Colonel Thompson started off with the proposition that hi», client was not re sponsible for dragging this case into court; that it was not the province of tbe jury to punish his client for immorality, although be asked no leniency at the lmr of public opinion. Who was it, he asked, who had brought I Into court this mass of filth, spreading it I through the newspapers before the duugh Iters of the family? "I want you to try I tkls woman us a bawd nnfl a wanton, us «}>« acknowledged herself," declared Mr. THbmpson. He asserted that the suit had been brought with reveuge as its prompting motive, aud lie lold the jurymen that if they had lived with the woman ns Colonel Breckinridge had they would not have taken her into their families among their daughters and placed her at the head of their table. Every decent man would sure | tain the rolonel in his refusal to do that. Beginning with Madeline Pollard's age, since, he said, she had claimed to have been Seduced by the colonel at the age of 17, be Inquired why her mother and the family | Bible had not been brought forward as the best proof of her age. Back at that time when she claimed she was 17 she had been associated with Moitié Shinglehauer, and I » ie could not understand why so much had been said about Mollie Shinglehauer, who '' «s as good as the strumpets she had asso dated with. A good deal had been said about so many witnesses for the defense 1 haying been in houses of prostitution, but Colonel Thompson had no doubt that many a gwdfallow had been n such places ">' d r «'' ,d t ** 11 th « trut b " b ? ,,t " hnt ha Ç pened there as well as if it had happened »" » P .Tmw a° J 1 "* 1 out "bat happened In thrs< places, they must go after the people who had been th ™ re ! . u , . 1 to tbo occasion of the mock mar fiage at Squirt Tinsley's, he said that Miss po ' la " d had bwn in » * ute ? f debauchery a ,'' d drunkenness although she claimed t lHt ahe ' vaÄ Mck '.

As he was proceeding to the discussion I of the aubaeqnant events he demanded to I know where the plaintiff got so much I money to prosecute this case with, and pay al > ,h ^ unnecessary expenses and to hire these eminent counselors, and he promised to show that the woman had been a money "rker and a money getter every step of «*J«y »'■<> • aa trying to get money now.

Colonel Thompson, continuing, said that I Miss Pollard had deliberately said that she » ad bniUKht the aui, for reveuge. where upon Mr. Wilson correctodhim. I Judge Bradley said. There is noevt | Jeuce ^ ^ , flect iu the aU d Mr. Butterworth said, "I think she did not say I that." I Colonel Thompson said he hoped the I judge would correct him if he made Hny | mistakes, as lie had not tried a case for 15 y ears and did not pretend to be up in the | law. Proceeding, he referred to the forgetting by Mis» Pollard of the name which Rhe had liorne in the convent; told how she had gone with a retinue of her lawyers there. nnd be declared that he would take thi word of the Sisters of Charity, who had dedicated their live« to helping the poor against the word of the plaintiff, "with everything on this earth that a falze heart I ed woman, an adventuress, a prostitute. could have inciting her to feed her passion for revenge. " wm "Oli, inhuman woman!" ho exclaimed. "Inhuman monator! lu order tu hid* hei own conduct she lays It on this man. \V< art 1 appealed to by till* woman In »tatet play by the Moral name of mother, trying fo coin crocodile tears over children who»« death» »lie hud forgotten; to ooln money out of the pockets of the man with whom »be had lived with In equal disgrace." Every One lia» Told "Little Lies.*' The other side had raised a great, fust about the colonel s signing her examina tion papers for the civil service and certi fying that she had a good moral character. "There was not any fussing or stewing 01 kicking up u dust along about that time," he went on. "Both of them were pursuing course of immorality agreeable to both and were telling any little lie» that cainf along to help each other out." Every man in the court had told lies abott) those little domestic matters. II there were any who had not, they hud bet ter go out for awhile because they were too sanctimouious for the place. When be came to Mr». Blackburn, Mr. Thompsou said that she was a lovely old lady, but she was getting pretty well along In years. "She's no longera maideu gay," he said. She would not tell anything that was not so for the world, hut "the old lady was a little crude. She thought she bud been imposed upon and wanted to put it to Colonel Breckinridge as hard as she could. That's only human nature. 1 don't blame her. I admire lier spirit. Why, 1 was afraid she would jump down my throat , friZ7.es and all, when 1 began to ex amine her." The jury was not to punish Colonel Breckiuridge for immorality. All the great men of the world hud had their troubles with women. When Julius Cie sar was not making laws, he was making love to Cleopatra. "If there have been any great men who were not fond of women, they were great, hypocrites," the colonel declared. There was Bonaparte, Washington—all of them —who hail their affairs of love as well us of war, and he added, "I don't see why t his man, who is no worse than the rest of us, only he has been discovered and we have not, should he puuished unless we are to be hypocrites." If Colonel Breckinridge had lieen dis posed to He, he might have kept many thing» to his discredit out of the case. Only because he would not play the part of a In pocrite and perjurer he was con demned. "We nre looking at this thing as men of the world and men of common sense," Mr. Thompson said, going on to tell how the colonel had provided for her. She had said that she preferred being Colo nel Breckiuridge's mistress to Jim Kbodes' wife, and why? Because as his mistress she did not have to work, went Into good society and hud intellectual compuuion ship. Here court adjourned. F 1'reudergiMt In a Dungeon.
