SOME RATHER SPICY EVIDENCE Dangerous Testimony Against Breckinridge Given by Mrs Black burn of Kentucky. . Associated Press. Washington, March 9. The hearing: of the Pollard-Breckenrldge suit was resumed In the district court this morn ing. The attorney for the plaintiff, In the opening statement, said his client did not claim to be devoid of fault or blame, but there was a breach of prom ise, which was the Issue. Mrs. Julia C. Blackburn, widow of the late Gov. Blackburn, of Kentucky, was the first witness. She testified that Col. Breck enrldge brought Miss Pollard to her, asked her kind care and protection for the young lady and said he Intended to marry her. Mrs. Blackburn relnted how Miss Pollard once, In her presence, had! urged Breckenrldge to fix the day, but he put her off, saying he would fix it later. Major Moore, chief of police of the District of Columb'a, took the stand. He first met Miss Pollard, accompanied by Breckenrldge, at his office on May 13, 1893. He said: "The door was sud denly thrown open, and Col. Brecken rldge came in, followed by a lady. He said he might have to ask my protec tion, as the lady threatened his life. She demanded that he should promise to marry her, and seemed excited. She demanded that he name the day. He named May 31, 1893. and said he would marry , her If Providence spared his life." The witness warned Miss Pollard that she must not make threats against Col. Breckenrldge's life, as the police would deal with her. May 17, at the witness' office, Breckenrldge said the lady was pregnant through her rela tions with him; that she was going to New York to prepare for the event, and he intended to marry vher. He asked me to witness his determination. We three clasped hands. "It was an impressive scene." said the major. "Miss Pollard had drawn from her bosom a revolver, declaring if she had occasion she would use it upon herself and him. The wit ness took It, Col. Breckenrldge suggest ing that he should return It as a Christ mas present, and she telling him to give It to her on her birthday." There was a stir of excitement as Major Moore said: "He told her she could not ac cuse him of having approached her with flowers, or of having seduced her; that the first time he saw her he took lib-' ertles, and the second night he. slept with her." "Did she say he never seduced her?" asked Mr. Thompson, whereupon Mies Pollard cried: "No," shrilly, and her lawyers and friends devoted themselves to quieting her, which they were able to do with difficulty. "Not at that time," was Moore's an swer. Dr. N, S. Lincoln said the defendant brought Miss Pollard to him, saying' she was unreasonably Jealous and very nervous, and needed treatment.
