Uiookfleld Wa risherait - n'f -r: ASTORIA, OltEGOX, SATURDAY The Ureckeririrtc ('ase Almost at an End THE EVIDENCE SUBMITTED Probability That the Lawyers Will Occupy the Time Between Monday and Wednesday Associated Press. Washington, April 6. In the Brecken rldgs case today, Mary McKenzie, col ored, teetlfled that baby "Dietz Down ing" was born, In. her house, the mother giving the name of Mrs. Hall. ' "Did Mr. Hall ever visit Mrs. Hall?" "Sometimes." . , "Did you ever see him?" "Not until today. I recognized him by the child," responded the colored wom an, looking! directly at the gray-haired congressman, who sat before fier. The defense; did not care to cross examine Aunt Mary. The stream! of testimony was brought to its close after live continu ous weeks of sensationalism. The final rebuttal and sur-rebuttaTtoday con Fisted of details by Vie plaintiff and defendant, leaving the final Btatus of the case what it has been largely throughout a questloi.of veracity be tween the man and woman. Madeline Pollard took the stand to purge herself from the stain of the mock marriage with blind Alex Julian as well as to repeat, with a dramatic emphasis peculiarly her own, a denial that the agreement to marry between herself and Breckemldge had been any thing but a contract made in good faith on her part at least. She also talked of the merits of her case. Then, with a freedom whMi would have seemed astonishing but for the matter of fact way in which all manner of usual things have" been discussed throughout this unusual case, she was very much mistress of the situation as she has been on her former appear ances, determined to tell her own story In her own way and succeeding Iri her determination, as well as in keeping the corps of lawyers for the 'defense In a flutter of apprehension lest she should get away from their control. Col. Brecgenridge repeated in. all the various keys of negation in which his silvery tongue Is skilled, the denial of the story of Mary Yancey, the colored cook, and other vital details of the case fot the plaintiff. The arguments to the jury will begin Monday morning, so the case will probably close by Wed nesday night. There will be speeches for both sides. Mr. Carlisle will make the opening one fon the plaintiff. He will be followed by Col. 'Phil!' Thompson and Major Ben. Butterworth for the defendant, and ex-Judge Jere Wilson will give the final plea for Miss Pollard. Expectations of a great display of courtroom oratory from the lawyers will probably be fulfilled. Said Mr. Desha Breckenrldge of the defendant: "Father will place himself, as he has In his political campaigns, in the hands of his friends." CONFLICTING REPORTS.
