To-day much progress waa made toward tba completion of tha evidence for tha defense, aad it looks now aa if tha argument will commence tomorrow afternoon. Tba first witness, who testified before a full court-room, waa the Rev. Alex. Boeriug, who beard the statement of George Ellis la the Catlettsburg Jail, in January, 1883, whan Ellis said two wera guilty and Craft waa innocent. Elba said at tba time, "I am ready to have tha rone around mv neck, and depart fur a brighter land." On cross-examination, it was brought out that tba witness was induced to go and hear this confession by Tillman Craft, brother of tha prisoner. Tba next witness, Ballard Faulconer, waa a rcLLOw-PRisosca , with EUia and Craft at Catlettabnrg Jail. Ha told bow Ellis put his arms around Craft's neck, and kissed nun, and said be waa innocent. Ellis said: "My God. what have I done I" Wben Craft said: "I did not do this thing, and the blood of the murdered dead ia not on my hands, and I'll make it all right in tha morninz." The effect of this declaration was much weakened wben on cross exsuiinatioa it waa proven that the prisoners in tha Jail used violent language toward the man who perpetrated tha awful crime, and Elba was probably influenced by fear. Dpo Simons, another prisoner, said that before the confession Ellis and Craft had a long conference. The witness said Geo. Ellis was much worried about leaving his wife among strangers. Craft told him if be would straighten tba accusation against him Ellis' wife would be provided for, and then the recantation was made. An attempt was here made by tha defense to lu trod Joe three or four witnesses to tell about Ellis' other recantation, but failed. Then came van TCDioua roario.i or tux oat, when a number of witnesses wera in trod need to prove the details of Craft's whereabouts about tha time of tba tragedy. After dinner Mrs. Wm. Neal stated that tha night of tha murder bar husband came home at 18:80 and aha let him in. She went directly to bed. She woke up utter and found him in bed. Martha Hood lived at Neal's; she saw Neal in bed and asleep, and on the night of the murder heard him snore. Then she knew nifing till called to ee the burning houe. Mrs. J. w. House, sviin wooui urait boarded, testified as to his whereabouts at the time of the tragedy. The witness identified the coat, shirt and pants that Craft wore that day. Tba bloody shirt and coat torn were not introduced. Mrs. House did not bear Craft go to bed the night of the murder, but saw him there next morning. A naif-dozen other wit nexees were pnton too stand, but notiung new waa developed by their testimony. Tba feeiiug among those who attended tha court to-day is that THB DKrataS HAS BBZ!f BIXOULARLY WXAK, the only point made during the entire day being a partial contradiction of the cemetery meeting by an alibi. This, however, ia a decided gain, since the meeting was held by tba prosecution to be corroborative of Ellis' first confession. Mrs. Neal, who it was thought would give overwhelming testimony, did but little good. The de fense bave taken many exceptions, which are readily granted by boUi tha court and prosecution, in cae of conviction the mat ter will again be carried to the Court of Appeals, and unless to-morrow brings a differ ent phase there will be a conviction. TBS 0RDIR OF AROCMBST. Tbie evening the attorneys, both prosecut ing and defense, bad a coniarence, and agreed, in cafce the evidence is closed to-mor row, as is probable, that Z. F. Smith shall make tba first speech lor the defense, Hon. Keena F. Pntchard to follow for tba prosocu tiou. K. C. Burns to follow for the defense. and Commonwealth's Attorney Kinuer to close. Tba argument will be completed at tba night session I bursdar, and it is probable tha case will be decided in twenty-four hours. There will be no adjournment on account of Washington s birthday, but tha troops will observe it by a dress parade and a salute oi tblrty-eigut guua. TUB LOCISTTLLB LXOIOX. In my dispatches of a week ago aa interview with Maj. Leathers forebadowed a movement to withdraw tha Legion from tba State Guard, a topio which just now is much discussed lu camp, i uts morning 1 nad a chat with Mai. Brown, in which, in replying to a question as to bow the boys felt ai.out it, be said: "It ia tba impression that tba Legion can not be kept up unless there is such action and the Legion withdrawn. After our return there will be a lack of in tercet, for there is a general-feeling that the Legion as a body haa been badly treated by tne Aujutant-uenerai and otata autnontiea Wa wore badly treated in being seut to Grayson, though since we have been here we could not bave received higher consideration. As an officer Col. Aileu has been so thoughtful as to endear him to every one in camp. The boys are almost a nmt ia favor of leaving the Stata Guard. We ware organized for A ROMK GUARS, and bare received mora support from the city than the State, though as to whether or not we can withdraw is a question for tha Adjutant General to decide.
