He admitted that ha hud no divorce. "Oh, the horror of that moment. To think that 1 should have been living with him in shame. "He admitted that he had no right to have tricked me Into what I thought was marriage. Ho said he wanted a divorce, but declared that his wife, Lilly, would not divorce him and he could not divorce her, because she had not done anything. BALDWIN ADMITS D*X>BH "I asked him why he hud not tom me the truth the night of March 3 and .saved me from my shame. He said that I was too much of -a Puritan, while hi was a Mohammedan and be lieved in a man's having more than one wife. He said we could bo happy together anyway and he would be kind to ma and care for me and the child. At that point in her story a recess was taken until afternoon, when there was a noticeable increase In the num ber of women In the crowd. Many of them stood patiently all through th* remainder of the day's session. When the court was called to or der Mr. Grant reverted for a few moments to the pictures of Mrs. Turn bull that had been finished In red and blue. In response to his questions Mrs. Turnbull said that Baldwin had or dered a third one to be finished in pink tor the child. She declared that he kept it. She also recalled an Instance, when In San Francisco, she had asked him tor money with which to buy shoes. He told her, she said, to go to a stor* in Market strict, say she was his wife, and have them charged to him. She did bo, purchasing a pair of gray suede shoes for evening wear. Mrs. Turnbull resumed her story at the point where she had learned that she was not Baldwin"^ legal wife. "He said it was my duty," she as serted, "to live with him, because of the child. Ho brought as much pres sure as he could, but I still refused. Ho told me It was right for me to live with him and that he would care well for me and make mo happy if only I would forget my foolish scruples. WOMAN'S WAX OVER "I became ill. I wanted to die. Mr. Baldwin assisted me to retire. I don't remember much more of that time. I was sick a day or two and Mr. Bald win nursed me. When I recovered he was about to go east. He gave me $120 and left, telling me to join him when I had come to my senses. He said for me to stay as long as I liked at the Baldwin hotel and be kissed me goodby and left. "I continued to occupy the apart ments at the hotel until one day H. A.i Unruh, Mr. Baldwin's confidential business adviser and manager, sent me a note in which he asked me to leave, as my rooms were wanted. I tele graphed to Mr. Baldwin, who answered to the effect that any person annoying me in that manner again would be dis charged. "Nevertheless, bellboys continually brought me more, notes with the same. request, and finally I left the hotel May "6 1893. I decided to go east to and Baldwin, i went to st.

I finally found him in St. Louis. I met him at the race track and had a talk, with him in the grand stand. CHILD IS BORN "] told him of the treatment I bad received at the Baldwin hotel. He said I should have stayed there Instead of following him east. He said he was glad to set- me, however, and asked me to live with him there. Ho said ha never would do anything more for mo unless .1 did. 1 told him such a thing would be shameful and disgraceful. He gave me $40 and left me. •i v, nt to Cincinnati. I fell ill, and when I next felt aware of who I was." Mi TurnhuH'M voice broke as she told her troubles, "all of my hair had been cut off bind 1 was informed 1 had had brain fever.

She told of the. child's being baptized in panadena, v. here Mrs. Turnbull lived several years, supporting herself by conducting a manicure establishment. She wrote to Baldwin of th« birth of the child and In 1897 went to San Fran cisco to see him. She .ailed with the child and her sister, but. saw only a Col. Kowalsky, Baldwin's attorney. A «I"K.STION OF JOKES \ question arising as to the truth of Kowalsky*' heinz Baldwins attorney, Mr. McNab asked if It could he proved by Col. Kowalsky.

Mrs. TurnbuH told of going east and teaching manicuring. she started to tell of the education of the child, but the court sustained an objection of the defense. The plaintiff's attorneys then surrendered the witness for cross-ex amination. WOMAN CBOSB-K.XAMINED "The first time you met Baldwin whs October 4, 1891, you testified," said Mr. McNab. •It was," said Mrs. Turnbull. "You met him ut the Thompsons' home, showed him about the grounds and lunched with him, I belleva?" "I did." '•He wanted to adopt you'"' "Yes."

The witness was silent. ■•Mill you fall In love with Baldwin in the short time that elapsed between the period when you thought htm a married man and that when lie told you ho had been divorced?" "I had loved him as a father before." ■aid Mrs. Turnbull. "He was very! kind to me." "But you began to love him differ ently when he said he was divorced." "Well, that made a groat deal of difference." "And it was in May. TW. that you learned Balwin was married and had not h'-en divorced?" "Yes." "And then you Immediately ceas .1 to | love him as suddenly as you had be gan loving him before?" ANOTHKK MAN NAMF.I) Without waiting for a reply, Mr. Mc- Xah thundered.

Mr. Dockweller, for the plaintiff, In stantly objected. The court overruled his objection. Mr. Dockweiler officially made an exception. Much of the remainder of the ses sion was punctuated with the three i words. "Objection," "overruled." and "exception." Mr. MeNab continued to ply ques tions relating to J]rs. Turiibull's inti mate associations with Baldwin, ask ing her of ber "coming to Los An ffeles from San Francisco, taking; her honeymoon alone," and registering un- , der the name of Lillian A. Ashley at | the Hotel Westminster, although she | had said she thought she was married j to Baldwin and therefore entitled to be known 8P his wife. "Mr. Baldwin told mo to register] under that name," declared Mrs. Turn bull. TRIP TO CORON'ADO Then Mr. MeNab asked about their } trip to Coronado. "How did you register there " he asked. "Mr BaJdwin attended to that," said Mrs. Turnbull, "while I waited In the ladies' room." "Did you not look at the register?" "I did not." "How did he introduce you?" "As his wife."' "Did he not Introduce as his daught er?" "Well, when the words 'Mrs." and •Miss' are spoken repldly it sometimes is hard to tell the difference between them. I may have misunderstood." Mrs. Turnbull then testified that it was not until August, 1895, that she learned she had not been registered at- the hotel in Coronado as Mr«. Bald win but as Miss Asnley. In an attempt, it was understood, to prove that she had known that fact before Utters alleged to be In her hand j writing were introduced She was asked ' to Identify the writing. She could not say for sure that it was hers. She was shown the marks a clerk of the court in San Francisco had placed up on it during the trial of a seduction case, she brought thore against Bald win years ago when it was alleged she had admitted she wrote the letter. I>EI'LAJ<KS I.KTTKR FUR4JKRV She examined the letter more closely and declared it a forgery. The clerk who had the letter in his ear.: at the time the case was tried in the. morth, who was subpoenaed as a witnesses, a Mr. McElroy, whs asked to rise, to "refresh Mrs. Turnbull's memory," it was stated. She did not recognise him, she said. Neither did she remember a Mr. Smith, the court | stenographer, nor a Mr. Martin, the bailiff, who also were exhibited. Then followed queries as to her knowing a James H. Wood, to whom the utter was addressed. Bhe knew him. said he was a detective and that she had met him in Boston, "He came to mo thore," she said. "For what puspo.se?" •I can't rememoer." "Did he not call upon you as the ajront of Colonel Albert Pope?" •N.i." "Did he ever give you any money?" "Not himself. "What do you mean by 'himself"." "He handed me money when J start ed hack to California where he Hd -1 vised me to go, saying it might not be too late for Mr. Baldwin to obtain a divorce and marry me. He gave, tne STB and apologized for being unkind to me in 1894." "Whore did you get the money with which you bought your Pasadena cot tage?"

Senator Cummins, who seeks the adoption of a concur rent resolution to change the rules of the senate and house, so as to permit piecemeal revision of the tariff law. This he did, and mine. Doffing his toga when he arose, ho lectured the grave and dignified sena tors from the standpoint Of an editor, which he is in private life. The senate gaaped and then laughed when Mr. Young told it the country would feel relieved were congress to adjourn altogether for two "solid" years. It gasped again when lie alluded to its members ill breezy fashion as ' boys," and when ho declared tho editors of the country and not con gress, rule" the country, the galleries .joined with the senators In general hilarity. Senator Young's speech, which oc cupied less than aji hour, commanded the Strictest attention. The senator had prepared an address which was before him on his desk, but he sel dom consulted the manuscript. He warmed as he proceeded, and. ap parently realising that it might be at once his salutatory and his swan song, he spoke his real thoughts on legisla tion and on the national legislature. OI'I'OSKS TARIFF <'HAXUKS His reference to editors and printers' Ink as the real directors of tho des tinies of the nation was followed by disavowal of any intent to offend. When he called his colleagues "boys," ho accompanied it with a wave of his [ hand. This incident followed a story | of how, JtiMt us he was about to take ■ the train for Washington, and a con stituent buttonholed him. "Go down there, senator," said the I constituent, "and for heaven's sake put up a fight for the consumer." "1 will not." Mr. Young said he re plied. "Those boys there are doing I that. I am going to fight for the pro- I ducer." Mr. Young opposed all efforts at re vision of the existing tariff because, as he contended, the law protects the farmer. He had great fear, he said, that ultimately the adoption of the Cummins resolution would prove in jurious to the great agricultural inter ests. »lr. Young spoke of the recent elec tions and plainly referring to the pro gressive Republicans, said that argu ments made by men within tho Re publican party had produced Demo cratic votes. In discussing attacks by Insurgents on I the principle of protection, Mr. Young told Of meeting Col. W. ■<■ Bryan re cently, and of saying to him that just as the latter had progressed in fitness for the presidency, his chances had diminished and that as he had now be come a conservative, his party would not prefer him for that high office. .LAND DIRECTOR SUGGESTS NEW PHILIPPINE POLICY Captain Sleeper Urges Adoption of More Liberal System WASHINGTON, Pec. 15.—Transac tion in friar lands in the Philippines were again under discussion before the house committee on insular af fairs today.
