MUST PAY THE PIPER Damaging" Evidence by Wit nesses for Miss Pollard DIMINISHED CROWD ATTENDING Testimony that the Silver-Haired Orator Really Intended Marryiiifr Madeline. Associated Press. Washington, April 5. Judge Bradley's admonition of the night before reduced the attendance at the Breckinridge trial today to the thinnest audience jet Fathered. The. defense made an unex pec-ted move, calling Miss Pollard to the stand ai.d nuest4oning her about her second child. This afternoon Louise Lowell was re called and over the objections of de fense, permitted to tell the substance of the letter to "My Dear Sister Louise." She said: "He spoke of his great love for her and I think used the expression that he never knew two of the same family of such different ages who loved each other so well. He told how impaMent he was to get away from the duties which kept him from her, and described in glowing terms the meeting they would have when he re turned." Mary Yancey, a colored woman, was called. She had cooked In the house of Mrs. Thomas, at 1819 H street, last May. Mary did not know the meaning of the word "plaintdfT, but did know Miss Pollard Breckinridge, and she also knew Col. "who visited Miss Pollard there." - Did you ever see that basket," Mary?" Mr. Carlisle inquired, handing up a basket once tne property or me late Mrs. Breckinridge. "Oh, yes," was the answer. "I have seen ILthousands of times. That's Mlrs Pollard's work basket." Objections were made, but overruled, and Mary pr.iceeded to tell how on a certain day In May, Col. Breckinridge had lunched with Ml3s Pollard She said: "The colonel said to me, 'Mary, that was an excellent lunch; one of the nicest lunches I ever have ate In all the days of my life. Miss Pollard said, to me 'that If you cook like that all the time I would like to have you come and cook for us when we go to housekeeping next fall.' " She testified that Breckinridge called on Miss Pol lard at the house and would often throw his arms around her. He would always bring a bunch of flowers to her. He called sometimes every day, some times twice, and sometimes three times a day. The colonel said they were go ing to housekeeping In the fall. He kissed Mlsa Pollard when he called during the month of May. This was after his marriage to Mrs. Wing." VICTORY FOR THE MEN. Says the Decision of Judge Cald well. So Omaha, April 5. Organized labor to day won its greatest victory when In the United States circuit court Judge Henry C. Caldwell handed down his decision in the Union Pacific wage schedule contest. In a long legal opin ion this declaration of the court stands out most prominently: "A corporation Is organized capital; It is capital con sisting of money and property; organ ized labor Is organized capital, Its cap ital consisting of brains and muscle. What Is lawful for one to do Is lawful for the other to do. It Is lawful for stockholders and officers of a corpora tion to associate and confer together for the purpose of reducing the wages of its employes, or of devising other means of making their Investments profitable. It Is equally lawful for or ganized labor to associate, consult, and confer with a. view to attaining or In creasing wages. Both act from prompt ings of enlightened selfishness, and the action of both Is lawful when no Illegal or criminal means are used or threat ened." QUIETNESS RESTORED. Harrlsburg, Pa., April 5. Gov.

It has been asserted that more than 60 vessels have already cleared, and beyond doubt the entire llt-ct, prollttcd by the hint con veyed, may clear fronti port before the law Is duly proclaimed, in expectation of taking a full cargo of skins bcrore they can be overtaken and served with notice to stop hunting. If tills was per mitted, the results of the arbitration would be nullified, and the state of I affairs would be even worse than last year, when, under the restraining In fluences of the modus Vivendi, scaling vessels captured about 100,000 skins But Canadian sealers are likely to be sadly mistaken if they proceeu upon the theory that British law will govern the action of our cruisers'.' Of course, it will be a guide for the British war ships, but the failure of the British act to further meet the spirit of the arbi tration will not result in preventing Un united States carrying out the agree merit according tr the provisions of our own act, and any Canadian sealing craft caught in forbidden waters by Amerl an enitsersjwlll be seized, iuUwjjr m notice. - . - A SCARE) IN WHEAT.'
