Col. Busckinhidgb is still on the rack
with Judge Wilson forcing the fangs into
him Nothing especially new has
been developed, except that a type wri
ter has been found who copied letters
and directed them to Miss Pollard during
1SS0, the year the colonel says there
was no communication between them.
It has also been shown that ho gave the
plaintifl a certificate of good character to
enable her to go beforo the civil service
commission, and that he invited and
took her to a lecture to n female
at Washington last February. The
colonel denies nearly everything that
Miss Pollard swore to, and it looks a little
like "he doth protest too much." lie
says the Bcene in tho presence of Mrs
Blackburn when sho called him "Willie"
and ho addressed her as "Madaliuo"
in the most affectionate way, did happen,
but that it was only "u superb
piece of acting." Ho cluims that Mrs.
Ulackburn got things mixed iu her rec
ollection of certain remarks which fail to
consist with his. "I deserve punishment
and I have had it," said tho colo
nel, whose face shows that tho terrible
strain he has beeu undergoing. Tho
wages of sin is death, and no "one realizes
it more than the gray hair defendant.
The South Carolina war bus smoothed

All that talk about former office hold-la

back this time to give the other fellows
a chance, seema to have been to scare
tho old papsuckers off and not really intended
for tho president's rule of faith
and practice. A large number of them
have been appointed, and now comes ex-Public
Printer Benedict to get his "fat
take" again. Tho exs., who thought tho
story true about them not being wanted
again, are kicking themgelves for giving
up so quickly for another chance lo live

Tnere were no unusual demonstration,
tho woman meeting death in a rather unconcerned
or dazed Bort of a way.
Persistence is a well developed trait
on Mr. Cleveland's character. He nominated
O. U. J. Taylor, a Kansas negro,
fur.Minister to Bolivia but the Senate rejected
it; and now ho names him for recorder
of deeds of the District of Columbia,
tho fattest kind of a take. Fred
Douglas held it for a number of years
