LONDON , Dec. 1. ( Now Yoik Ileiald
Civlilo-Speclal to thu Uit : : . ] l.ndy Colin
Campbell last evening had n bad onion. Slie
wa * thrown from her cab nenr ( Jeorgc l.cvvls'
oflloe ns she was nbout to consul her solicitor
Wns It ominous of to-dny's testimony ?
Uninjured she joined her family gionp this
morning , looking sad but self possessed. The
Duke of Marlborouch , for Ihu tlilul time n
correspondent In his histoiy the Lady Ayles-
ford cn e being Iho most prominent of the
llirco occnslons at a nhort distance
avvny from her. Ills sun-burned
face evinced recentsport on the moors. Ho
Bt'oined HioStrClmiles Coldslrenm Wnllack
used lo piny In "Used Up. " A wig would
much Improve his almost tonsuicd bend , His
thin nostrils , Ilko those of n thoioughbicd
fiorrio , aided his aristocratic look , which
seemed to mean , ns ho surveyed contempt
uously the key-hole witness , Itoso liner , In
the box , "Tliero nothing In It. "
To cut short n long nnd rather wearisome
dlicct examination of this witness , n ills-
charged maid , It may bu pntd that she told
hei stories trippingly nnd gave n rather
stereotyped confidential mnld'.H talc , imply
ing adultery , much like Iho narratives given
jcnrs aio In New York in the famous Hasock
vs Culling case. It was a tale of tlm
dally coiiespondcncn between Iho Duke of
Marlboiouzh nnd l.ndy Colin , of Idlers se-
crcily delivered , of milady's midnight piovvl-
In ITS near Marlboroiuh's house when in dls-
enlso , nnd of adulterous doings , ot which the
pillows , bed linen , and towels weio all silent
\ < / " witnessos.
"Methlnks the lady doth protest too
much , " seemed thu motto with several of the
Shu wns Iho same lerrlblo vvllness for Iho
side calling her which Lady Miles had been.
Shu was too glib , too confident. Ilur story
sucmdd to go lo pieces in many important
particulars , especially when Sir Charles Hus-
sell , for l.ndy Campbell , got at her in cross-
examination. Ho had been visibly Impatient
and eager for thu fray while thu witness wns
on the stand. Dliectly ho called for nny ot
hci written statements. Laid Colln's legal
luminaries smclled danger and fought bit
terly to have these , ns given his solicitors ,
declared privileged. The judge , however ,
said they must bo produced. Dovetailing
her testimony just given with Iheso state
ments , Sir Charles Kusscll certainly suc
ceeded In exposing manv inconsistencies and
contiadlctlons , besides diavvlng attention tenet
not n fuvv absurdities.
During the vvllness' evidence llieDnkoof
Matlboiougn kept glancing impintinbably
at tlio jmors , as much as to say : "Didn't I
lull you there was nothing in it ? "
Sir Charles Husscll was particular to hi ing
out the tact that the witness had told the
story to Lord Collu's lawyers before the time
nt which they openly stated on the first trial
I , for ciuelty that they had nothing against
' Lady Campbell's character.
The onslaught of Sir Charles' cioss-oxam-
Inatlon finally drove the witness Into a
fainting III , nnd many wonduicd whether It
wns to bo n repetition of the old dramatic
incident of Snpuhha. However , after
luncheon she was restored to equanimity.
Hut Sit Clmilcs Hnsscll continued pljlnghls
tculblo questions. Sometimes the judge in-
trrrtiptcd with seaichlng quciles of tlio
Next Atloiney Ccnuial Wessher , for the
Dnko of Mnlboiongh , cai.tlit up tlio threads
of Inconsistency. Fiom all these signs It be-
rnme evident that tlm cioss oxamlncrs were
laying the foundation for alibis ; nlso thai tlio
man O'Neal , just an ivcd fiom Jay Gould's
j achtsei vice , would to some extent coirob-
oratu the witness. It is said that lie will bo
called to-moirovv.
U really now looks ns if the trial , with the
rebuttals nnd sjieeches Hint nttiit follow ,
might inn Into thu Chiistmns season , that
season which II ruies as the occasion on which
to-day's witness swears that Lady Colin
Campbell anil the Duku of Mnilboioiigh met
intimately In Lady Miles' country hoibc.

" .My Oed , I'm thed of this. 1 am tired of

time of the death ned confession , when it
was revealed that Wilson was not Wilson

and the secret'was known onlv to the foster
parents of young Wilson. Wilson , In his

would result in his favor without lecourse to

lid Is determined to lollow Ills
