suspicious that he should spen d twelve

"'Miss Pollard, did you and Colonel

the Hulfinan House: '
"Yal sir, ou May 17."
''Did you threaten to shoot him in

"Yes, sir." This reply was made
quietly and in a matter-of-fact tone.
Then Judge Wilson asked if the de
fense admitted the marriage on April
29. Major Butterworth admitted it
and made tbt first formal announce
ment of the ceremony
JUDGK WILSON S OPINION.
Judge Wilson made the point that
since the marriage of the defendant, on
April 89, was admitted, anything that
happened subsaiiuent to that date was
not competent evidence
Judge Bradley overruled Judge Wil
son's point on the ground that the mat
ter hnd heen brought iu on direct ex
amination. Mr. Breckinridge she aid, had
joined her on the Monday night of his
marriage at the Hoffman Home, and
said he might have to go awav. He
said a big company had been formed
with Mr. Whitney, Mr. Faircbild and
other rich men with a capital of $d0,
000,000 and that tney were going to
couitnisdon him to go abroad, and he
wanted to know if I wonld marrr him
and go abroad with him. I said:
'Willie, I will go with you at a min
He went out, asking me to put some
of his clothes together, ami I looked
over his telescope hag and found a re
volver in it. 1 became suspicions at
this.for he had been acting very oddly.
He said he had gone out to see Mr
Whitney and Mr. Fairchild. I tele
phoned them. They had not seen him
He said he might have to go away that
night on a private car.
I wrote to the general manager nt
the Grand Central station and he said
no private cur was there. Then he
came back and acted very queerly. I
asked him if he intended to keep his
solemn promise to marry me; and ho
said: "Madeline, I never lovod an
other woman as I love you, my darling,
I have never thought of another wo
mannever a thought but of you has
been in my mind.
Miss Pollard's imitation of Colonel
Breckinridge's tones of voice was ver y
good and caused a laugh. I told him
him if he did not marry me, I wool 1
kill both him and myself and he swore
he would marry me and removed my
Miss Pollsrd admitted frankly that
she had bought a pistol to kill the de
fendant and herself She had also
bought a pistol in February, 1898, to
kill herself alone. All this was after
be was married to Mrs. Wing.
The scene during all this examina
tion was tragic and exciting, Miss
Pollard leaning forward iu ths witness
box and looking squarely at Colonel
Breckinridge as she delivered her
charges against him. Miss Pollard
told of the sensational call on
Major Moore, the chief-of police, whan
she gave up a pistol to htm. Hhe
told of her wanting to go away after
Mr. Breckinridge's wife died to stay
two years until he could
marry her, hut he begged her not to
go'aud she yielded to him. "I always
yielded" eaid Miss Poll ard.
At 8 o'clock Judge Bradley ad
journed the court and Miss Pollard
quickly made her way out of tbe court

LOUIS KOSSUTH DEAD.
The Great Hungarian Patriot txpires
at Turin After a Linger
Tunis, March 20 Louis Kossuth,
ths Hungarian patriot, died at 11
The body of Kossuth will be interred
in Genoa, near that of his daughter.
Edinond de Annuls, the Italian author,
will deliver a funeral oration in the
name of Italy. The obsequies will be
imposing, and will lie attended by a
great gathering of Hungarians.
Louis Kossuth, the eminent Hungarian
orator and statesman, was born of a noble
family at Monok, in the county of Zemp
lin, in 18'.'. He studied law tit tho Prot
estant college of Sarosdatak, and joined
the popular party in opposing the despotic
polioy of Austria. Having offended the
government by his writings, he was im
p'isone'l three years (0), The diet of
1840 refused to rant supplies during the
imprisonment of Kcssuth, who was conse
quently liberated. In 1841 he married
Th res MeSltenyt, and began to edit a
daily newspaper at Pestb, called "Pesti
Hirlap." the tone of which was liberal, but
not radical or democratic. He was elected
a member Of tbe diet by the national party
of Poeih In im7. and acquired a blab repu
tation as 1111 ornlor. In March, 1848, the
diet adopted a proposition made by Koss
uth, the object of which was the appoint
ment of a responsible Hungarian ministry,
bs a pledge of constitutional reforms.
Kossnth aud others were sent as a deputa
tion to Vienna, and obtained the assent of
the emperor, then conscious of the pres
sure of a powerful revolutionary move
ment. KoS-ulh Induced the diet to vote
tho perfect equnllty of civil rights and
public burdens for all classes, and t ex
tend the right of suffrage. Ho became
minister of finance In the new ministry
formed In April, 1848, Although the bene
tils of these reforms wre shared by the
Croatian! and eervians, an anti-Magyar
party was soon formed in 1 routia by the
Intrigues of Austrian agent. The Croa-
tietis. directed bv Jellaohieh and secretly
aided by Austria, revolted against Hun
gnry. and began hostilities by the massacre
of villagers on the frontier. 1 11 June, 1848,
the Austrian curt openly sanctioned the
movements of the Croatian insurgents
Kossuth believed that tbe time had come
to defend by anus tbe constitution and the
national independence. He called for the
levy of v!(R),iK)H men, which was granted by
tho diet. In September, I84s. Jellacuteh

in April, 184H, the Hungarians renounced

chose Kossuth governor or dictator. Hut
tho intervention of liussia rendered the
heroic efforts anil sucritlc.es ,,f the Hun
garians unavailing. The victories gained
by Dembiuski, Klapka and Hem served
only to prolong the national agony. Koss
uth, after a disagreement with Gorger,
whom ln accused of treachery, resigned
his office on the 11th of August, 184U and
wont Into exile. He retired to Turkey
and mi imprisoned nt KiHaieh. Through
the Intervention of England and ths Uni
ted States he was released in August, 18.M.
He then visited England, where he was re
ceived with enthusiastic popular demon
strations, and made several admirable
speeches In the English language. In the
autumn of 1851 he came to the United
Slates, the OltiBSUSof which gave him a
