Hoy Two Wltituanua?The Wrlt :nc on the Chrlntimin Cnrtl Placet There Siihseiiuout to tho Time Stateil l>) Major Moore ou the StHiul. WASHINGTON, March '27. ? Kxpert testimony to provo that Madoline Pol? lard mado the advances which resulted in the lone llason between Colonel Brce'ilnridgo and horsolf, was the feature of the broach of promise suit to day, A letter dated at Wesleyan College July 20, 1884, addressed to Colonel Hrockinridge and signed Madeline V. Pollard, was produced by tho dofonco and experts who had compirod it with letters acknowledged to have been writton by Miss Pollard testified that tho handwriting in tho first letter was that of a person who wroto the others. When the July letter was shown Miss Pollard on tho stand, she pronounced it a forgery. She said she had writton Colonel Brockinridgo In July, 1884, ask? ing his advico about the threat made by James C Rhodes, but that Bbe had not askt-d him to call on hor. Tho defense claimB that the letter dated July 20, 1884, was written by Miss Pollard when Colonol Breckin ridgo had not, answered the letter she acknowledged writing. The disputed letter was not placed In evidonco, but it is known that it contains an invitation to Colonel Breckinrldge to call on the alleged wrlier as WeBleyan College, and omplimonts him on his "nice face." Tho only other witness was Maj Wm. Q. Moore, tho chief of Washington's police force, who denied stat- mcnts Miss Pollard said had been mado by Col onel Brcckinridg" and herself in his of? fice on two oco&bions in May, 18911, whon Colonel Brockinridtre promised lo marry the plaintiff Hardly fifty people were present in tho courtroom this morninLr when tho i:*t-o was called, and the big biro court? room looked cheerless in comparison with Its aspect on former days of tho triai. The court, was suraewbat lato in assembling. Mr. Shelby conducted tho examination of Major Moore, who bad already testified in behalf of Miss Pol? lard. In answer to questions from Mr. Shelby, Major Mooro denied statements mado by Miss Pollard on tho atand with reference to what bad been said at in? terviews bad between Colonel Hreckin? ridgo and Miss Pollard and the witness. He denied that Colonel Hrtckinridge bad aaid, as testified by Miss Pollard, "ThiB is ono of life's tragedies," adding that thia young woman bad borne him two children and there was a third in prospect, to which, according to Miss Pollard's testimony, she ropiiod: "Yes, Major Moore, I gave myself to him " Major Moore said, in answer to Judge Wilson on cwoss-examlnation, that his recollection of the conversations in his otllco between the plaintiff, tho defend? ant and himself, on May 13 and May 17, was bated almost entirely on shorthand notes which he had made immediately after tho interviews. no would hardly have remembered much about tho two interviews if it were not for tho short hand notes. "What was his (Colonol Breckin ridge's) manner when ho mado these declarations to you about marrying Misa Pollard?" was Judgo Wilson's next i|uen ion. "Quiet," said Majsr Mooro, after an objection to the question had boon over? ruled. "I want to know whether on that occasion her manner did not indicate satisfaction and gratification over the promise of marriage?" "Oh. wo object to that, too," said Col. Phil Thompson, but tho quostion was allowed, and Major Moore said: "Hor manner indicated satisfaction and grat? ification." On re directexamination by Mr. Shelby Major Moore was questioned with reference to statements that had been made by him when previously on tho stand and to these Judge Wilson ob? jected on tho ground that thoy had all been gono over before and ho was sus taine d in sovoral instances Exceptions wore noted by tho defense. This con? cluded Major Moore's testimony. Dr. G. B. SbuifTer, deputy coroner of tho District of Columbia, was put on the stand as an export in handwriting to examine the letter which Colonel Hreckinridgo says he rteoived from Miss Pollard in 1884, and which caused him to call on her at the Wesloyan Col lego in Cincinnati tho week their inti? mate relations began. Miss Pollard read this letter on the stand and pro? nounced it a forgery, "and no one knows hotter than that man thoro," she said, indicating Colonol Hreckinridgo, "that it was not written by me." This lottor has never been made public. Dr. ShaofTer was asked many ques? tions as to bis practice in detecting forgeries and in running down anony? mous lottor writers Ho bad been called as an expert in handwriting, ho aaid, in several trials, and devoted from two to six hours a day to the study. After examining Dr. ShaefTer for nearly an hour as to hia knowledge of handwriting, Judgo Wilson said ho was satisfied that Dr. ShaefTer did not havo the necessary qualifications of an ex pert, but Juage Bradley thought other? wise, and allowed tho witness to remain on the stand Major Butter *orth handed Dr. ShaefTer tho lotter purporting to bo to Colonol Hreckinridgo from Miss Pollard, which, she claims, in a forgery; and the lottor siRned "W. C P. B ," *nd a bundle o: Mibs Pollard's lotiers to old man bbodes. Dr. SbailTor said ho had examined all of those yesterday. "Now, doctor," said Major Butter ' worth, "having compared these, a? you )KE, VA., WEDNESDA state, can you say whether this letter hero (one of Miss l'ollard's ackuowl- ) tdgod epistles) was written by thesame person as this (the letter el.-im >d to he forged)?" "Yt-s, sir; they wero written in the same handwriting " "Now, doctor, I hand you a Christmas card which was taken from a work of Washington Irving Can you state whether the writing on it, 'Compliments of W. fc>. D.,' has been written morn than flvo yoars?" This Is the card which tho defense claims Miss Pollard slipped into a volumo of Irving at St. Joseph's Found? ling Asylum, while she was thero getting up evidence last December, to prove her claim that she was at tho asylum in 1885 and gave birth to a baby there. Judge Wilson objected to Major But torworth's question and it was modified, Dr. ShaeiTer being ;.sked how long ago the writing had boon done. Tho witness answered that It looked to have been written not more than three or four years ago. That^was the utmost limit, and it might have been written within three or four months. Dr Shaeffer en? tered Into a trenchlcal explanation as to how' ink Is affected by exposure to tho air to prove his assertions, and he was then turned over for oross exami? nation to Judge Wilsen. F. Ii. May, a member of tho Washing? ton bar, was sworn as an expert in hand? writing. He bad seen many thousands of handwriting and compared them, be said, lie had made their comparison his Bpecial study Mr. Hay was shown tho alleged forged letter and tho letter written by MisB Pollard to her school friond, Wessie Brown, and he said they were, in his opinion, written by the same per son. Mr lliy was obliged to undergo an examination similar to that of Dr. ShaofTer in order to justify bis claim to the character of "expert." After his examination the court adjourned until to-morrow.

Alliance, Ohio, March 27.?This point was reached by the commonweal army early lhis afternoon after a march of fourteen miles over very rough and muddy roads.

Richard L Garner, formerly of the Smithsonian Institution, who has passed nearly a yoar in Africa studying tho language of the monkeys, is back on American soil. II > arrived from London by the Ftruria, with his head fall of th.i strange words of the Simians. "My trip," ho said, "was a groat suc? cess in spi*e of the fact that I was seri? ously handicapped from tho very outset. I was compelled to go to Africa without a phonograph, on which instrument I bad placed my greatest rolianoe. In the early spring of '03, after landing In Gaboon, I decided to ascond the Ogowe river about '.'50 mihs '.or the purpose of locating the habitat of tho gorillas and the chimpanzees. "Finally 1 settled upon the southern shore of Hako Fernan Va/., which is about two degrees south of tho equator. Hack about a mile from tho lake, in a dense jungle, I pitched my cage. For nearly six months I lived In this oag? with a native boy and a young chim? panzee named Moses, that I had cap? tured. "MosoB >ften dined with mo, but he could never learn the table etiquette of the Caucasian. I tried to teach him to speak English, but ho mado little pro? gress. He did succood, before he died, In learning some simple problems with blocks, and I discovered that he could count. "Soon after I was in the bush I saw my first gorilla. My face seemod to interest him most, and ho regarded my features critically, as if studying my character. A few mornings later I was awakened by a gorilla sbrioklng near my bouse. He would vary those shrieks, which wore almost like thosoof a human being, with the most awful roars 1 ever hoard. The gorilla's roar is unlike any? thing I ever heard or imagined. It is one of the most awful sounds la the world. It almost makes one's blood stand still in tho veins There are several notes in tho crescendo roar which resemble tho bray of a donkoy, hut incomparably harsher and louder. "After I had been several wooks in the jungle I attempted to make a num? ber of photographs, but to my disgust found that uiy camera would not work. During my stay in the cage I recorded about twelve words of tho chimpanzee language, and about half as many of those of the gorilla tonguo. I found that the two were entirely distinct."
