n S SOuN' at it became known this
A morning that the eoud body
had been found at the Ghtylora
Uu mine the tzeitamcnt bom lu
tense ami crowd of people hnrried to
the nlgoe. The scent was one of deso
lation and gloom about th uiiue. tlie
day wss cold and unpleastnt to those
who loitered about tuo place anxious
to Know the latest that was going on.
At an early hour this morning the
cave was hoited and a miner stepped
off to notify the outside officials that
another victim had been found. Liter
the body ot Michael Welsh was brought
to the surface iu a rough bos. placed
in the undertaker's wagou and sent to
his home in Avondale.
When discovered by the rescue party
the body was in a standing posture,
with both arms across the forehead,
indicating that he waa trying to ward
off some terrible blow, or to shot out
the awful sight and tbougiit of the
fearful crash that was to him bis dath
stroke. When taken from his awful
position he was recognized only by a
cord that he wore about his bodv. his
face being tmtritied to such an extent
that identification was impossible.
The funeral of Welsh took place this
aftsrnoon from St. Vincent Catholic

stances, but are being cared for by
friends for the present
The afternoon shift of the resellers
came out of the mines tonight. They
believe that tney are nearing other
bodies, as the odor in the place where
they are working is almost unbearable.
There ie no truth in the reports sent
out that the third body had been found
in the Gaylord mine. At 1) o'clock to
night everything appeared to be .iniet
at the shaft. It is more than probable,
however, that one or more bodies may
be discovered between this and tomor
row morning. The rescuers are work

dollars as lie had issued treasury
There were one or two other points
in Mr. Sherman's speech which he de
sired to contradict. One of them was
the statement that there was a hoard
Of 864,000.000 elWet dollars lying idle
in the treasury. ''There is no hoard of
any kind In the treasury, " Mr. Teller
asserted with emphasis, Mr. Sherman
spoke of it as an idle hoard. There is
no idle money in the treasury of the
United states
There has been no idle silver money
in the treasury except that whicu lies
behind the treasury notes to the ex
tent of 85,000,000. This was the only
country in the world, Mr. Teller said,
whoso legislators depreciated its
money. Wbv was is that Franc
could float $500 000,000 or !WO,000,OOU
of silver money'.' It was because no
Frenchmau over dared to stand up iu a
legislative body of that country and
dcltre that tiie money of the country

tive members repudiate the govern
ment money.

Testimony Resumed Id Miss Pollard's Case
Against the Colonel.
Sister Cecilia Has a Good Memory
For Names But Poor tor Faces.
Cannot State Positively That the
PlaintiH Was an Inmate of Norwood
Convent Gratitude But no Love for
Old Jim Hodes A Romantic Story.
The Case Grows Moro Interesting.
Washington, March 14
THE testimony of Sister Cecilia, of
Pueblo, Col., formerly superior
of tho Norwood Asylum, near
Cincinnati, was resumed when
the Breckinridge trial commenced this
morning. Miss Pollard was again in
the courtroom, sitting nearly In front
of Colonel Breckinridge, with only the
unstere-raced sister from the House of
Refuge beside her. the other unknown
friend being for the first timo absent.
Sister Cecilia was on the witness stand.
Replying to Attorney Carlisle' qu?s
tiuna she said that sho had a good
memory of namet, but a poor memory
for frees. She could not affirm posi
tively that Miss Pollard had been an
inmate of the Norwood couveut nor
could she swear that sbe had not.
When Mr. Carlisle inquired her belief
on the fuct, Attorney Butterworth oh
j"Cted that while any facts might be
given, the opinion of the witness was
incompetent. Attorney Shelby added
that the question of the opinion of the
witness was au attempt to invaJe tus
province of the jury.
Mr. Carlisle supported the admis
sibility of the answer with authori
ties, and Mr. Butterworth rebutted
with more authorities.
Judge Bradley said that if the ques
tion was intended to elicit the opiuion
of witness as to the identity ot the
plaintiff with a certain psrson who was
at the asylum at n certain time it was
competent; if it was intended to show
that the witness, from thing she had
subsequently learned, hail become con
vinced that the plaintiff had at gome
time been an inmate of the asylum it
was incompetent.
There was some hesitation on the
part of Miss Pollard s couusel in tram
ing a question, it being apparent that
the sister was scrupulously careful
about the extent to which she would
commit herself in identifying Miss
Finally tue plaintiff's counsel re
served an eiceptitio i to the court's
ruling and then framed a different
question, asking "What is your opin
ion as to the identity of the plaintiff
with a patient in your asylum in May,
June and July, lj5:' which was also
overruled, another exception noted and
followed by tho question "What is
your bolief as to whether the plaintiff
was in your asylum during those
months,'' "That is a questiou for the
jury," said Judge Bradley.
The identity of the friend who sat
beside Miss Pollard throughout the
trial was divulged when Mr. Carlisle
culled Dr. Belle Buchanan, and that
lady walked nronnd to the witness
stand and took the oath. As she was
giving her name, occupation and th
usual preliminary answers Mr. Phil
Thompson spoke out familiarly : "Speak
up a little louder, pleat, doctor, we
can't hear you "
Dr. Bnebenen has an intelligent face
Slip slated that she first made Miss
Pollard's acquaintance under the name
of Louise Wilson in Juno. 1885, when
Miss Pollard came from the foundling
asvlutu at Norwood in a carriage, her
coming having been arranged by Dr.
Mary Street, now Mrs. Logan Their
lions was at the comer of Fourth and
John streets.
Mis Pol In i i had been given th
111 . ilicine she needed ami massage treat
men't, and had teemed very weak.
When court reconveiiod at the after
noon session Mrs. Wesley Robin
son w-is called as a witness, but the
was heard only through her deposition
taken iu Cincinnati. She knew Miss
Pollard, alio said, at the Wosleyau
college, of which her father, W. 1C
Brown, was president, ami whore Miss
Pollard was a pupil.
Miss Pollard had told the Aopononl
that her father admired W. C. P.
Breckinridge, or John Breckinridge, or
some Breckinridge, and had given her
that name. Miss Pollard also said she
admired the defendant, who was then
to quote the witness, "the star of Ken
tucky "
In tho letter which the witness had
received to be opened at graduation,
Mies Pollard referred to her deep debt
of gratitude to Jaim's C. Hodes, and
said: "Mow can 1 ever marry the old
wretchr" Also in the lottr Mist Pol
lard referred to her love for Professor
Overman A story called "l)etioy"
was appended to the letter. F.xtractt
from the document were read the de
ponent, and she told of the various
porsous mentioned.
The deponent testified that Miss Pol
lard told her sho had met Colonel
Breckinridge on a train and this en
counter with so distinguished a man
wan talked over a great deal in the col
lege. H may have been through this
talk, laid the deponuut, that the name
"Breckinridge" was inserted in Mish
Pollard's name by her school mates.
Mis Pollard had always seemed to the
deponent to be an innocent, pure
minded girl.
Mr. Carlisle rend th Utter in full
Most of it has been published, butsoiu
part that were not given to the public
press became public through the read
ing today. It was an account of Miss
Pollard' life. Th letter told of Mis
Pollard's meeting with old man Redes,
her contract with him and her inability
to pay bim back.
Miss Pollard said sho had for him
"the strongest and most ardent senti
ment I ever vntertaiued for mortal
man." She also Baid, "I do not love
Rosell at all. 1 feel that God threw
him across my pathway," After end
ing with her blind sweetheart, Miss
Pollard said she "sattlod down in a
flame of pure love for Professor Ob-
inger. "
Mr Stoll read the story by Miss Pol -lard
enclosed with th letter. It waa a
romance of Cincinnati, sueu as would

girl, and lika the letter was full of ex
travagant, girlih expressions. The
reading of th story created mueh
