Breckfuridgo Expected to lie on the Stand for the next Three Days at Least. Associated Press. Washington, March 28. The surprise of the Pollard-Breckenrldge case today was the unexpected appearance of Miss Pollard's old lover, Rankin Roselle, a Kentucky schoolmaster. His deposition had been read In the case, but to make his testimony doubly sure he appeared In person, and no sooner had he taken the stand than Madeline Pollard glided In, for the first time this week, from the office of her attorney across the street, where she was to be sent for when her presence was desired. Prob ably she will be In court tomorrow to face her silver-haired accuser, for the attorneys declare there will be positive ly no longer postponements In the tes timony for the principal, and Col, Breckenridge will take the stand In the course of the day. Most of the testi mony today was In the form of deposi tions, and was of a character which can only be published In expurgation. The case for the defense Is drawing to a close with the appearance of Col. Breck- enrldge, whoso testimony Is expected to occupy at least throe days. Then there will be evidence In rebuttal for an in definite period, as Miss Pollord will take the stand again, and witnesses have been summoned from Kentucky. A TEMPORARY CHANGE. The Rumored Resignations From the Central Pacific Directorate. Son Francisco, March 28. Charles F. Crocker, first vice-president of the Southern Pacific, was seen today re garding the resignation of C. P. Hunt ington, H. E. Huntington and himself from the directorate of the Central Pa cific. "There Is no great significance to be attached to the matter," said he. There is no sensation In it, and no sur prising developments may be expected. So far as I know, none of the stock holders are dissatisfied. If there arel ny dissatisfied ones, they may be heard from at the annual meeting, which takes place April 10." Mr. Crocker de clined to enter into any further expla nation of the matter, Intimating, how ever, that the change is only a tem porary one. Relative to the retirement from the directorate of the Central Pacific of President Huntington and Directors C. P. Huntington, Charles F. Croker and Stephen T. Gage, the Call will tomor row report C. P. Huntington as saying that If the government does not accept the present bill before congress post poning the time of payment of the Cen tral Pacific debt or extend the time of payment of the bonds to a reasonable period, the probability Is that the first mortgage bondholders will take the road. If, on the other hand, he said, a reasonable time Is given to meet the obligations and the proposed new issue of bonds Is made, the government will receive every dollar due inside of 60 days after the bonds are fssued. Hunt ington is said to expect litigation be cause of the recent change in the man agement of the Central Pacific. . WHEAT MARGINS. The McGlauflln Contracts Discussed By the Produce Exchange.
