In his opinion th bill ws a viol i

WASHINGTON, March 8 Congress
man w. O. P. Breckinridge, long en
titled the "silver tongaad orator" of
Kentucky, son of a Presbyterian min
ister, veteran of the confederate army,
a member of one of th most distin
guished families of his state, and here
tofore conspicuous as a politician and
churchman, began to lav the rolo of
defendant in a suit for $90,000 damages
for ereacti of promise and sednctlon
brought by Miss Madeline Pollard, nleo
Half an horn before 10 o'clock, the
time for the court to opu, the corri
dors swarmed with people seeking en
trance, including several old ladies
half ashamed of tneir pre-nce.
So small is the courtroom that Judge
Bradley had given orders to exclude
every one but those having a legiti
mate interest In the case. First on the
scene of active pirticipiiits in the ca-i
were the attorneys for ttisi Pollard.
Messrs. Wilson and Cariisl. Soon
afterward the most constrictions pr
sonaije of all, C donel Brecki aridge,
of Kentucky, arrived. There was a
ruddy g'ow of health on his face,
tringed by the snow white heard and
looks. He was accomoanied by Bn
Butterworth, the Ohio ex-congressman,
who had been engaged to take
the place of Colonel Totten in the de-fens-.
Last Angust tho anit was filed, a few
days after the coid marriage of Col
onel Breckenridgo. Since then both
parties to th suit hava been engaged
in taking testimony in Kentucky and
Cincinnati, the attorneys for Miss Pol
lard undeavoring to suostantntte her
assertions that Colonel Breckinridge
sednced her when a girl in a seminary
at Cincinnati, was the father of h"r
three children and had made repeated
rrnnises to marry her; while the

Colonel Breckinridge, it is under
stood, will take a leading part in his
own defense. If he does so there can
he no doubt of tbe ability with which
it will be conducted. Apart from tho
able assistance he will receive from
Colonel Pnil Thompson, an ex congress
man from Kantn-ky, who is a brilliant
lawyer, Colonel Enoch Totten,
counsel for the defense, is one
of the strongest Washington at
torneys, a middle age 1 man with a
white moustache. He is in i lorida bs
cause of weak health and will uot re
turn until the 15th, for which reason
the defense has unsuccessfully endeav
ored to secure a further postponement
of the trial. On-' of th most active
workers in the arrangement of the de

who has been untiring in nts efforts in

with a big American Bag at her stem,
and tho Cramps burgee at tho mast
head. Her steam siren bellowed al
most continuously in return to the sa
lutes of nil sorts of craft along the
HlVgN AX OVATION.
Crowds of people wavo I the big war
ship a welcome back from th do. ks
and home tops along the river, and
when she swung into her berth at the
ship yard she was cheered by the
thousands of work men engaged in fin
ishing the Columbia, the Minneapolis
and the other ships under way iu the
The Indiana left the Cramps yards
at U o'clock Tu 'sday Doming and an
chored (iff the Delaware breakwater for
the night. At 4 08 a m. on Wednes
day the anchor was token aboard and
the shid headed out to sea. The day
was a psrfeoc one for a sea trial.
Too coursa over which her trial runs
were made was off Cape May, and ws
between tbe southwest lightship, at the
five fathom bank, to the northeast
lightship, DOo nauticil lines up the
coast. Tn ship was put over this
course six times three times in each
direction. The turns wero rasde at
full speed and the trip waa practically
under five hours' continuous stoaming
at high spaed.
The averages were 14,03 and 14 12
knots respectively. A mo lerate force
draft of half an inch nir pressure was
used for the next runs and an average"
of lo knots was maintained over this
course. This is the spend called for in
the contract with the government. The
last two ruas were made under a forced
draft of one inch air pressure.
TKIl' WAS SATISFACTORY.
The great mass of steel and iron
ploughed through the water, but only
a slight vinration from engines or
screws conil bo felt. The ship made
lo i knots on these last two runs. At 7
o'clock this morning she startsd on hr
return trip to this city. Coming np
the bay and river an average of 14
knots was made, with n favorable tide
tot eighty miles.
Ths perfortnanos of the Indiana on
this preliminary run was very satisfac
tory when tne condition of the ship is
considered, tier side armor, turrets,
conning townr and guns have not been
placed on her yet, and she consequently
ilraws three foet less water than she
will on her official trial. This will
ink her screws deeper and is expected
to increase her speed. Ordinary soft
coal was nsed on this trip, while caro
fudy selected coal will be employvd
When the official trial takes place.
Taking all things into consideration
it is predicted that the ship will make
at least sixteen knots and possibly a
quarter or a half knot more. A prem
ium of $25,000 per quarter knot will be
arnttd by tho builders fur anything
abov fifteen knots, ami from $100,000
10 $100,000 will probably be paid by
the government iu addition to the $3,
020,001) numed in the contract.
