?OLONEL BBEl K1NHIDGE will
U take tbe aland tomorrow, unless
n the nnforseen should happen, to
i) testily in his own behalf against
tne accusations of Madeline Pollard,
Today several witnesses for the de
feuse were examined and nearly all tne
remaining depositions were real, leav
ing only a few of the latter to be dis
posed of. When the resaing of the de
positions is concluded, Colonel Breck
inridge, his attorneys sav, will take
the stand and they are confident that
he will make a good impression.
Tbelestlmony introdnsed by the de
fease todav whs sensationul. Part of
it was very vulgar. Rankin Resell, tbe
young man to whom Miss Pollard was
engaged while at Wesleyau col
lege during the periol of her illicit re
lations with Colonel nreckinridge and
while the contract to marry or pay
back old man ltodes wai in existence,
was placed on the witness stand and
testified that he had held Alias Pollard
ou his lap for hours at a time in the
parlor and the library or tbe college
after ihiv became engaged, mi l that
she asked him to tak- her to Chicago
with him and she actually packed her
trunk for that purpose.
ONE OF TBE ELITE WITNESSES.
Rosell's was the last verbal tesli
mony given, and when he had stepped
down Mr Stoll began to read the depo
sition of Hiram Kan ff man. Mis Pol
lard and Miss Kb is loft the court room
ss tbe reading began. Kanlfman is a

Lixington. H" said when he cume to
Lexington, twelve years ngo. be wen;
to a house in Lexington which was
half assignation home, half bawdy
hofiso, kept by Lena Singleton, and in
May and ,lune, 1888, lie had seen Made
line Pollard there.
This was a year before Miss Pollard
met Colonel Breckinridge. He had
seen Madeline Pollard and James C.
Rodes at the bouse of Ln;i Singleton
where she sat in his lap and acted jmt
like any woman of the town He bad
also seen Madeline Pollard, he said,
enter a private room in this house with
Joha Brant and at another time ihe
went In this mum with another man.
Bodes referred to Miss Pollard as his
girl. The witness deposed that Miss
Pollard had made advances toward
bim, but he rejected them on account
of bis friendship toward Bodes, with
whom fie was associated at the insane
asylum near Lexington,
I he witness ssid he had not gone
back to Lena Singleton's house because
be had a quarrel with "the Pollard
woman" as she was called by the at torney
takinit the deposition, and he
went on to tell in all its disguitniL' de
tails a conversation between thoiu that
out-blllingsgated billingsgate and in
which Miss Pollard ia represented m
using language that is hard to credit
when compared lo her refined manner
and appearance. Eanffmau said be

at the bouse of Lena Singleton.
TBSTIMONt OF amh lint BEAUTY,
John A. Brant dsposed that he met
Madeline Pollard ut the hoUOe of Jim
Rodes, where Lena Singleton acted as
his housekeeper. The bouse was an
assignation home. H" went to the
house with Kodes and Miss Pollard
