Washington. April 14.- The fact
that the Democratic caucus yesterday
decided to have formulated a rule pro
viding for the counting of members
present but not voting did not have the
effect of inducing the house Republic
ans to desist from the filibustering Atti
tude they have assumed throughout the
week. As soon as the chaplain had
completed his prayer, Mr. Reed raised
the point of order that the pending
question was the approval of the jour
nal of yesterday, on which thu house
was dividing when an adjournment was
The speaker held, however, in accord
ance with the rule, that the journal must
first be read to officially disclose to the
house the parliamentary status. Mr.
Reed did did not contest the matter
. further, but when the journal of yester
day's proceedings had been read,
. Mr. Boutelle objected to its approval.
, Mr. Dockery moved its approval,
whereupon Mr. Boutelle forced the
.yeas ami nays. The Republicans de
clined to vote on the announcement, ;
142-0. showing that the Democrats were
3? short ot a quorum and that it was
manifestly impossible to supply the
deficiency today, Mr. Outhwaits uiovt-d
to adjourn. The motion was carried,
and the house at 12:80 adjourned.
r= Mr. Reed was a center of attention as
he entered the house today. His asso
ciates on the Republican side gathered
about him and warmly congratulated
him on the action of the Democratic
house yesterday in voting for a quorum
counting rule. It was regarded as a
personal victory for Mr. Reed. Demo
crats joining in goodnature 1 congratu
; lations. Mr. Cock ran remarking that
Mr. Reed was no lunser the original and
only czar, as the Democrats had de
- cided to be czars.
: Mr. Reed conferred wirh Messrs.
Pingley. Burrows, Cannon and other
Republican leaders as to the course to
,be adopted when the new rule was
brought in. He would authorize no
statement of what would be done.
In his talks with members, how
ever, it was made clear that
-Mr. Reed would iead the minority
in a hearty acceptance of any
rule recognizing the substantial prin
ciple of counting a quorum, which he
enforced in the Fifty-tint congress. To
frit nd Mr. Reed remarked that it
was hardly wise to announce a policy
and thus place your cards face up on
the desk. It has been made clear, how
ever, that Hie only thing Mr. Reed will
contend for is a rule free from
Ambiguity and which will accomplish
the end, as well as recognize the prin
. ciple for which he has so long contend
ed. Representative Dingley. of Maine,
talked with Mr. Reed and with many of
the Republican members as to the uros
pective course of action. Mr. Dingley
would not outline any exact policy, but

'•While 1 am not authorized to state
what course will be adopted, it seems
; evident that no opposition will be made
►to a rule which, clearly recognizes fie
principle that an actual, visible quorum
can be counted to da business. A rule
of that character would be such a
vindication and indorsement of
the rule enforced by Mr. Reed
in the Fifty- first congress that there
woul be every reason why we should
accept it with satisfaction. Nor is it
likely that questions would be raised
against unessential details so long as
the substances and essence of the par
liamentary principle fur which we have
contended is recognized."
THE SPEAKER'S VIEWS.'
After a conference, lasting three
hours, today, Speaker Crisp and his
Democratic associates on the committee
on lu'es.Represeiitatives Catchings and
Oulhwaile, did not complete the new
quorum-counting rule directed by the
Democratic caucus. Mr. Crisp said at
the conclusion of the conference:
"We have been going over the many
plans proposed from time to time, but
have not as yet reached a conclusion.
The greatest care is' being exercised to
so frame a rule that a quorum can be
counted from members actually present,
but not from members absent. The
rule must be plain and careful, so that
no doubt and contusion can arise.
From the progress we have made it
is likely that a satisfactory rule
will be formulated very soon, and per
haps by Monday. It is essential, how
ever, that Democratic members of the
house should return to Washington and
give us the quorum necessary to do
" " business. Until such a quorum of the
majority is here it is hardly worth while
to bring in a rule to be buffeted about.
The journal of the house has not been
approved for two days. We want the
quorum, and when that appears a satis
factory rule will soon be submitted."
It is probable that the Republican
members of the rules committee.Messrs.
Reed a"nd Burrows, will be asked to
join the Democratic members of the
committee on Monday to consider the
new rule, so that a unanimous report
may be made. Among the plans sub
mitted to the Democratic members of
the committee today was one by Rep
resentative Berry, of Kentucky. The
essential feature of this plan is that it
proposes to fine, absentees a day's pay
instead of *10, as heretofore proposed,
. and thus overcome the obstructions
made against adopting police court
QUAY TALKS TARIFF.
Hill Talks Rules - Aldrich and
Harris Steer the iieb.i^e.
WAsiiiXGTOx.April 14.— The first bill
introduced by the new senator from
Georgia, Mr. Walsh, was presented to
day. It relates to reform of the judi
ciary. Senators Morrill and Turpie
announced that on Wednesday they
would address the senate upon the tariff

It was displaced by the tariff bill. Seu

the doors were closed, and the senate

public. At 5:29 the senate adjourned.
Senators Harris and Aldrich, repre
eating the Democratic and Republican
ides of the senate, have agreed to con
' tinue the present understanding In the
senate fixing the hours of debate on the
tariff bill from 1 to 5 o'clock until Mon
day, the 23d lust., and that on that day,
after the close of the routine morning
business, the bill shall be taken up by
paragraphs tor amendment and discus

ment will be ratified by the senate. The
programme will be Interrupted on Tues

use of the words "general debate" as
applied to the discussion of the tariff
bill previous to the- taking up of the
schedules. lie says it should be desig- i
nated as preliminary debate, as the
general debate will continue after the
schedules are up just at present.'.
The senate committee on rules met
today.; for the purpose of authorizing
some new regulations tor the control of
crowds in the galleries and corridors of
the senate wing of that building. The
object of the committee is to prevent
the Mocking of passageways and the
overcrowding of the galleries. There
was no discussion of any of the amend
ments to the rules for the control of the
senate. When asked if there was likely
to be any attempt to change the rules
on the line of the amendments offered
by Senators Hill, Mills and other
senators, Senator Blackburn, chair
man of the committee, said noth
ing would be done in that line. ' A
suggestion was made to him tuat the
tariff debate might soon take such
shape as to complicate matters on the
floor, but he replied that it would be
time enough for the committee to de
cide upon a line of action when the
emergency should arise. Senator Hill's
intimation yesterday that he might
soon . ask to have pairs counted
for the purpose of making a Quorum
lias aroused considerable interest, and
there is much speculation as to what
the vice president's ruling would be in
case a point of order similar to that
made by Mr. Hill yesterday should be
raised. Senator Hill does not, in
conversation, commit himself more,
fully than he did on the floor of
the senate yesterday. His friends say
that he announced the doctrine -of
counting a quorum . before Speaker
Reed took that position in the house,
He also is known to be impatient over
the delay occasioned by the . present
rules. In view of the supposition
which is held by . some that he
would like to see the tariff bill
defeated unless it can be very much
modified, his course With reference to
the rules will be observed with more
than usual interest until that bill shall
be disposed ot. It is probable that the
.Republican members of the committee
on rules, as well as a majority of
Republican senators, will resist any
effort that may be made at. the
present time to change the rules. Sen
ator Aldrich has generally been
regarded as an advocate of radical;
ciiaugrg, and Senator Manderson, the
other Republican member of the com
mittee, has been an advocate of modifi
cations, but both appear willing at this'
juncture to allow the rules to remain in.

TREATING THE WRONG DISEASE.
Many times women call on their family physicians, suffering, as they imagine, one from dyspepsia, another from heart disease,
another from liver or kidney disease, another from nervous exhaustion or prostration, another with pain here and there, and in this
•way they all present alike to themselves and their easy-going and indifferent or over-busy doctor, separate and distinct diseases, for
which he prescribes his pills and potions, assuming them to be such, when, in reality, they are all only symptoms caused by some womb
disorder. The physician, ignorant of the cause of suffering, encourages his practice until large bills are made. The suffering patient
gets no better, Dut probably worse by reason of the delay, wrong treatment and consequent complications. A proper medicine, like
J&r. Pierces Favorite Prescription, directed to the cause would have entirely removed the disease, thereby dispelling all those
distressing symptoms, and instituting comfort instead of prolonged misery. - - ~ . ' "
For worn-out," "run-down," debilitated school teachers, milliners, dress-makers, seamstresses, general housekeepers, and over
worked and feeble women generally, Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription is the best of all restorative tonics.

the judge, and declared that experts
were paid according to the strains upon
their science. There would be a scandal
from expert testimony unless the legis
lators stipulated that unbiased experts
should be appointed by the court. He
cited the Nforey letter as an evidence of
the fallibility of expert testimony, and
then stirred up the
FIERCEST PASSAGE OP TFTE TRIAT,
by stating that the Wessie Brown let
ter from which this had been forged,
had been procured by the defense and
carried in Mr. Stoll's pocket.
"Mr. Wilson," demanded Attorney
Stoll, "do you mean to insinuate that 1
committed the forgery?"
"1 do not," replied Mr. Wilson. "l said
some skilled penman commuted that
"Do you mean to say that I was a
party to it? "
"1 say you had the Wessie Brown let

Wilson fiercely. "Didn't you?"
"1 did," replied Mr. Stoll, belliger
ently. And for a moment the air was
surctiartted with belligerency.
"1 do not propose," uttered Judee
Wilson, "that you shall stand here aud

THE WKSSIB BROWN I.ETTKR
and the alleged foreery were submitted
to the jurors for comparison, while Mr.
Wilson rested in the chair of the wit
ness box, and the Breckinridge forces
conferred. Attorney Stoll dashed off a
note and handed it to the official sten
ographer, who began to look over his
notes. There was intense silence in
the room, and when the jury had fin
ished their examination. Mr. Wilson,
leaning against the witness box,re
sumed his argument in his usual de
liberate tones. One of tho jurors asked
to be shown another of Mis^ Pollard's
letters. Meantime, Maj. Butterworth
entered, and Col. Breckiurirlge said to
him in an undertone, laushinz, "Wilson
says that Charlie Stoll forged that let
"He will hear from that aeain," re
marked Mr. StoU iv a louder tone. The
remark reached Judg« Wilson, and he
stepped forward from his chair.
"tVhat was it?" he ask'id.
"There is another court than this
one," answered the tali, thin, smootn
faced, spectacled Kentuckinn.
"What do you mean?" asked the tall,
cadaverous, cray-haired Indianian.
"Imean," responded Stoll most de
liberately, "that you stated that 1 forged

"What do you mean by the other
Here Judge Bradley interposed:
"Now, eeutlemen," he said. "I think
you had better proceed with this"
There was a moment's pause, no one
hail more to say, and Mr. Wilson pro
ceeded, perfectly cool, with his argu
ment. He handed to the jury th« tin
type of Madeline Pollard taken with
\Vessie Brown in the summer of 1384.
"There is a girl he met that day," he
said. "Now, look on tins picture, and
then on that," ami tor the second picture
he raised bis arm towards Col. Breckin
"What an opportunity that carriage
offered for S9 auction. Col. Breckin
ridge seemed to think that to seduce a
girl it was not necessary to stand under
her window with a lute and sine love
songs to her. Did not his selection of a
closed carriage for the warm August
night indicate a purpose beyond the
ordinary purposes of a drive?"
seemed to hover over the court room.
Judge Bradley evidently wanted the
atmosphere to cool, for lie let ilia usual
time for the noon recess pass by several
minutes, and did not adjourn court until
Mr. Wilson called his alteution to the
time. The stenographer Drought to Mr.
Stoll a transcript of Mr. Wilson's re
marks. Mr. Stoll sat in his chair sur
rounded by his colleagues, and gave the
report of Mr. Wilson's remarks to Mr.
Butter worth to read. - There was much
talk of a duel during the noon recess.
Mr. Stoll went out of court during the
noon recess on the arm of Maj. Butter
worth, who seemed to be giving him
pacific counsel. Afterward Mr. Stoll
said to an Associated Press Reporter:
"Maj. Butter worth is senior counsel
of the case, aid has control of it until it
is finished. Under his advice, 1 shall
do nothing. Alter the case 1 am my
own master. Then I will have my \li
nings. I do not care to say what I
As the officers of the court entered by
the rear door for the afternoon sessidji,
they saw Mr. Wilson and the portly
Maj. Butterworth seated together In tile
vestibule. Maj. Butterworth had in his
hand the stenographer's report of Jri.
Wilson's remarks concerninu Mr. Stoll.
and was talking earnestly. It had Ix-en
reported that Desha BrcckinridK*. son
of the defendant, had carried a chal
lenge from Mr. Stoll to Mr. Wilson, but
Mr. Breckiuridge, when asked about it,
"The code provides that a geirtlemrfn
may carry a ciiallenge from one gentle
man to another, but I cannot do that,
for Mr. Wilson is no gentleman."
Every one who knew Mr. Buiterworta
knew mat be would not be tbe bearer at
a challenge for a duel, and the natural
inference was that he was acting the
part of a peacemaker. Perhaps the
utterance from Mr. Wilson which fol
lowed as soon as court had opened was
the result of the conference. The
cadaverous attorney tosh beside the
witness box, and in his usual calm tones
bei:;ui to speak.
"In the heat of this discussion, in the
presentation of facts," he said, "coun
sel may have conveyed impressions that
they did not intend. I h;ui no thought
of Insinuating that Mr. Stoll had forged
that letter or had procured it. I had
no intention to cliargu it upon him, or
to convey such an insinuation. 1 wished
merely to show him how easy it is for
such things to appear. In the part of

again. 1 shall mention it because it is
a part of thu case. When we become
connected with a case we cannot be
very well disassociated from it in
argument. What more can 1 do as a
lawyer, and what less would Mr. Stoll
as a lawyer have me do?"
It was learned that during the noon
recess Mr. Wilson had said to Mr. But
terworth that if it appeared from any
thin:; he had said that he intended to
impute any improper conduct to Mr.
Stoll he would correct and retract. Mr.
Stoll expressed himself to The Associ
ted Press as beine satisfied with Mr.
Wilson's explanation, saying that it
was no doubt intended to be full and

came to the matter of the Christinas
card, he saidttiat he did not believe Mr.
Stoll with all his sensitiveness couid
object to what he was about to say.
When the sisters at the convent had
been questioned Mr. Stoll there had
been questions put aud answers eiven
which left no other inference but that
Attorney Carlisle or Attorney Johnson
had putit there.
"Judge Wilson," inquired Mr. Stoll,
"have not the counsel for the defendant
purposely denied any such intention?"
"1 kuow." resDonded Mr. Wilson,
"but 1 say that there wai such an In
ference to be drawn from it."
He proceeded to state that under such
circumstances, when their honor was
assailed, it was but just and proper
that Attorneys Carlulu and Johnson
should have taken the witness stand to
deny, as they did, that there had been
any chicanery In the matter of the
Christinas card. The defense had
harshly criticised Dr. Mary Parsons for
suppressing the record of the birth of
Miss Pollard's second child, lie con
tinued, while the defendant had admit
ted that he had persuaded lii?v. Dr.
Paxton to suppress the record of the
secret marriage, a record which the law
demanded should be made public,
aud was ef equal importance
with the Jrecord of a birth,
aud regarding; that marriage certificate
the defendant had testified that he
tilled out the body of it while Dr. Pax
ton sigued his (the minister's; name. He
(Sir. Wilson) would accept that explana
tion, and yet, so much alike was the
signature and the handwriting of the
body of the letter that a dozen exDerts
could be found who, at $50 a day, would
swear that one had penued the whole
document. Mr. Wilsou came next to the

and said how much was at stake for
Madeline Pollard in such a union, lie
argued tiial the woman had been less a
sinner than the man. Was there any
thing: like the love of a woman for a
man? The story of the "Scarlet Letter"
was recalled most effectively by Judge
Wilson. Hector Dimmesdale Lad not
put away the woman who wore the
scarlet letter, he said; he had a con

JUDGE URADLEY'.S CHARGE.
At 2:30 Judge Bradley began his
charge to the jury.
Following is a summary:
Judge Bradley spoke first of the pol
lution of the case. He said it contained
few interesting legal points, aijd Jliat it
the parties had been 61>ocure it would
have attracted but little attention. But
because one of the parties had been of
national prominence, and because, he j
feared, of tiie character of the details, it •
had attracted a large and sometimes a !
vulgar crowd. Tlie court, and even i
some of the jurors, had been deluged!
with letters conveying suggestions to j
which the wri e.s had not the de
cency to sign their names. He believed
the jury \tad followed tlie injunction to j
discuss the case with no one. It was j
inaccurate to say that the community i
at large was a third party to the <ase. ;
Except to see that justice was dona be- j
tweeu the parties the world at
large had no interest in the
case. Public opinion should not
weigh a featherweight, abstract princi
ples were not to be vindicated, nor the
country, the home and the family. Per
sonal opinions or wishes, based on the
relations between the parties, or other
facts, were not to be considered. It
was only a question whether a contract
to marry existed, and whether, if
broken, there was an excuse for break
ing it. The verdict was not to vindicate
the character ot either party. Althongh
much of tlie testimony was unfit to be
reviewed, it was to be said, to the credit
of the parties, that they had handled in- i
delicate details as carefully ami decently '
Nearly all of the counsel had ob
served tlie same restraint, and lie re
gretted that this could rtot. be said of all
the counsel. (Here ail eyes were turned
to Col. Phil Thompson.)
AXY REVOLTING STANDARDS OF MAX
which had been set up were not to be
weighed as evidence, nor were collater
al details to be allowe d to obscure the
the main issue. The credit to he placed
upon the testimony of plain tilt aiid de
fendant where they differed was to be
judged in the light of tlie character and
lives of the two, as shown, and of other
circumstances a ecting their credibil
ity. After reviewing the contentions of
tUe two parties briefly, he read the legal
instructions granted, which have al
ready been printed. Col. Breckinridze
sat between Maj. Butterworth and his
son Desha, with his chin resting on his
hand, while the instructions w*re be
ing road. The whole charge was in
manuscript, and Judge Bradley read it
in a rather monotonous tone. In ex
plaining one of the instructions the
judge said that if the defendant had
any knowledge of improper conduct on
the part of the plaintiff when he prom
ised to marry her, if he did, his action
condoned those offenses. Explaining an
other, he said that the defendant,
quoting a Massachusetts opinion, could
not be excused from failure to perform
a marriage contract by legal inability to
t uiiili it, becaase his legal inability did
uos lessen the damage to the plaintiff
from his failure to marry her. There
most be grosser impropriety than that
testified to by Julian regarding a mock
marriage to form an excuse for a failure
to fulfill a marriage contract, the judge
said, and quoted Julian's testimony.
Lewd and lascivious conduct meant
mare than Julian had testified to, or
Hobsell, who told only of such acts as
were common between people engaged
to be married.
TO SUM IT ALL UP,
if a contract was not made, or if it was
agreed to with the understanding that
it was not to be carried out, tlie verdict
should be for the defendant. If a con
tract bad been made aud broken they
were to find for the plaintiff, awarding
such damages as they saw fit. Their
verdict must be formed upon the pre
ponderance of evidence.
The jury retired at seven minutes
after S o'clock.
BKECKIXRIDGK WILL FIGHT.
Shortly before midnight Col. Breekin
ridge, in an interview with an Asso
ciated Press reporter, said he did not
intend to let the litigation end here. If
the motion for a new trial be denied, he
will prosecute an appeal and exhaust
ovary possible legal remedy. He at
tributes the verdict to the power ol
public opinion, which influenced the
jury. Said he:
"The plaintiff and I will each live our
respective lives, the publio will become
more familiar with the fact?, and the
final judgment 1 will not fear to meet."
He characterized Judge Wilson's
speech as an utterly unscrupulous and
dishonorable anrninent, full of false
statements aid slander.
"Thi verdict." said he, "has not
weakened the ties that binci my wife
;n • children to me, nor impaired the
frien (ship felt for me by my friends."
He remains a candidate for renomina
tion to congress.
BRECKINRIDGK DONE FOR.
Kentucky Towns Approve the
V r crdict — Advised Not to Run
for Conjcress. 2
Frankfort, Ky., April 14.— The peo
ple of this section watched with interest
unsurpassed in its intensity for the ver
dict in the Pollard-Breckinridge trial.
The Daily Capitol appeared in an extra
issue a few minutes after the news was
received from Washington, and iv half
an hour every man and nearly
every woman in the city had
heard of and were discussing the
verdict. But one person in the whole
t iwn lias been heard to say that the:
plaintiff should not havo received any
thing. Brecklnridire's friends are do
ing very little talking. The consensus
of opinion among the many who openly
expressed any is that the verdict is a
just one, and that it will be folly for
him to even think of appearing in this
district as a candidate.
Paris, Ky.. April 14.— The verdict in
the Breckinridge-Pollard case is being
thoroughly discussed here tonight. The
verdict is a surprise to the friends of
Col. Breckinridge. They confidently
expected a hung iury. His opponents
aie jubiiant. A petition asking Breck-
Inrldee to open his canvass here on tho
first Monday in May was passed around
today for signature, but did not receive
many. His friends are very quiet to
night, and don't want to talk.
Louisville, Ky., April 14.— The
Commercial says the verdict in the
Pollard-Breckinridge case was not sur
prising. What continues to be the sub
ject of astonishment is that Col. Breck
inridge did not allow the case to go by
default. The verdict possibly indicates
the jury disapproval of Coi. Breckin
ridee's couduct and of Mr. Thompson's
cynical speech more than it does any
sympathy with Miss Pollard or the
value they put on a contract of mar
riage between persons in such relation
to each other as the plaintiff and de
Lexington, Ky., April 14.— While
the press and the courts are against
Col. Breckinridge. there is profound
sympathy for him here at his home.
Although there is no disputing his
record in matters brought out iv the
trial, he has been a true friend to many
neighbors and associates. The papers
here have published the proceedings of
the trial without comment, and they
will appear tomorrow without editoria
reference to the verdict. His friend
still insist on his canvass for congress
and expect him here soon.
