BOCK ISLAND, JLU FRIDAY, APBIL
REBUTTAL BEGINS.
Defense
Rests in the Case of
the Colonel.
MADiXINE ON TEE STAND AGAIN.
Called br the Defendant's Attorneys She
llevelops a Slip of Memory u to a Name,
Apparently Two Witnesses Testify That
Those Kentucky Imposition Are Impos
sible of Truth The Proprieties at tile
Wraleyan Seuiiuary That Cook.
Av Asm ng ton, April 6. The defense in
the Breckinridfje-l'ollard case called Mad
eline Pollard and asked ber about the birth
of her second child, born, according to ber
testimony, Feb. S, ISVj. She said that ac
cording to ber promise to the colonel she
only held it in her arms two bours. She
gave it the name of Pietz Carlyle, having
been reading Carlyle at that time, and
pinned a mite to that effect on its clothing
before sending it to a foundling asylum.
Then Mrs. i Lidtlie, who hud been matron
at the asylum referred to in lss, produced
the record of the asylum for that year,
contnininithe slip of p.iper pasted iu the
Look, showing that the child's name was
to be Diet "Downing." Ti e baby died in
April, is
l'rottocution l.egins Impeaching.
For some reason the judge wouid not
admit the book as evidence, although the
slip of paper was in the mother's hand
writing presumably, as it said: "P.ease
Lame 'my'Xiaby." etc. After proving that
no return of a birth in February. IS-. baj
been made by Dr. Mary Parsons, the
physician in tbis alleged case, the defense
rested and the prosecution introduced Dr.
William A. Coweu, cousin of Madeline,
and Charles Sawyer, another relative, who
swore that Madeline had !eeu at Pitts
burg from ltiTti to IPSO, and at Lexington
from lsso to lsS) two periods when wit
nesses for the plaintiff bad sworn she was
frequently the inmate of u bouse of ill
repute at Lexington and nt no time dur
ing these years could she have ls-en where
defendant's witnesses bad testified she
bad been. ,
Mrs. llrown's Hook Admitted.
Mrs. Mct'leilaud lirown, wife of the
former principal of the Wesleyau semin
ary, hearing a large book, took the stand
and Was jiibotit to refer to this volume,
stating that it was the school record, when
the defense objected, but Judge lirudley
admitted the book, lu brief she swore
that young Indies at the seminary were
not permitted to see young men alone at
all and never more than twiee a week. This
was to impeach Hor-sell's testimony.
Madeline was bright but not tlei p, she
thought, jbut won a not.lMe victory at
school considering her s outh.
li. l.oell Asaiu on the Stand.
Next came Mrs. Lowell, the type writer,
who swore that ltrei kiiuirige bad cot ber
to copy letters to his "D-jar Sister Louise,"
and she was allowed against the protests
of tbe defense, to state tiie sulistanee of the
-letters sfc- eopied, notwithstanding the
fact that :ie letters were not iu court. The
sulistanee was that lireckinridge "spoke
of the greut disp irity between their uges,
of bis great love for her. and I think used
the expression that be never knew two of
the same family of such different uges
who loved each other so well. That was
the tenor of the whole letter and of other
similar out which followed it."
Ami Now Here Comes the Conk.
Mary Jauccy, tbe. cook, whose work
lireciuridgc is alle4lfo have promised,
and told her that wlatv lie and Madeline
went to housekeeping Im teamed said cook
to work for him, next appeared, and she
swore it was all true. She had also seen
the work basket and saw the colonel with
Mrdeline wl.eu the latter was sewing
with the basket alongside of ber.
Arter His Marriage to Mrs. W inB.
She had also seen lircckiuridge caress
and kis' Madeline. The point of the tes
timony is that the period was after the de
fendant bail married Mrs. Wing. The last
w itness of the day was MissMinear, who
wore that Madeline was in Washington
