EVE OF BREAKDOWN. -0. LADY SACKVILLES COMPLAINT TO THE PRESIDENT. LORD SACKViLLE'S EVIDENCE Upon Lady Sackville taking her place in tho witness box this morning, and Mr. F. E. Smith rising to resume his cross-examination on behalf of the Scott family, she turned to the Presi- j dent and said she had had to see a doctor, and that she was on the eve of a nervous break down. The President told Lady Sackville, who looked very pale and as if she had had a bad night, that she would not be kept very long. Lady Sackville proceeded to deny a variety of allegations against her and to explain a good deal that happened. There was no foundation, she declared, for the suggestion that she broke up a musical part at Sir John's house. The testator had not helped her per-! sonallv with money in liio lifetime. What he gave was for her father, and to benefit Kaole. As to the alleg,rt library incident. Major Arhuthnot must have had an hallucination. Lady Sackville left the witness-box at about noon, and evidence was next given to show that, there wa-s nothing unusual in Sir John's attitude towards her, and that s-lle was not seen to use any coercion over him. Lord Sackville declared that he was never a party to exercise of undue in- fluence over the testator, who had said that he wanted Lady Sackville to be well provided for. Lord Sackvilk said he quite approved of his wife's association with Sir John Stt and his affairs. Sir John had said that he looked upon them (the Sackvi lies') as his own family. Miss Sackville- West, daughter of Lord and Lady Sackville, said Sir John behaved to her like an affectionate grandfather. She declared that she was mover in the Con uaught-place library under the conditions which Major Arbathnot had described. (Proceeding).
